Libra Love Match
Above all the rest your Libra lover is the most passionate, the most comforting and the most amiable of the sun signs. It is just in their nature. It is likely that you were the wall flower and they approached you at the party. They struck up a conversation because they sensed in you a discontentedness, or alienation. It was their gentle and comforting way that appealed so quickly to your heart and then they attacked your head. This is the general pattern of the Libran lovers, to reach out for the emotional aspects in people, and yet because of their almost insatiable thirst for knowledge, you won’t get out of a relationship with Libra before demonstrating an interest in more scholarly parts of the world.
But don’t get too deep with a Libra, since they are one of the air signs, their attention can wane and be spotty at best. They love to delve into hobbies like a flash in the pan, hot and quick. This incessant need for variety can be a real strength or an incredible weakness. Be aware of this tendency and make sure that you can see the warning signs in your Libra. When their eyes start to wander change the subject, there is no point trying to force the issue with a Libra, since even if they wanted to keep going their mind may be forcing them in different directions than they want to go in. Try and flow with their mind and their desires, it is often interesting and always exciting.
The Libran is always very intuitive. They know when you are lying and they know when you are trying to conceal some emotion or anger. It is always recommended to be honest with a lover that sits inside of the Libran sun sign, since they have a built in lie detector and are always on the look out for deception. This intuition means strong paternal/maternal instincts and a great deal of empathy. They are constantly making sure that you are ok, and that everyone around them is having fun. Don’t expect to be able to hold on to your Libra at a party and though they will be regularly looking for you and peppering you with affection, their more emotional empathic side drives them around.
If you are on the hunt for a Libra man or woman, don’t force things with them. Though being swept of one’s feet is always attractive, the Libra may have so much on the go that it is important to integrate yourself into their world initially. Don’t let this stop your from romance and spontaneity, just recognize when and how.
Balance is very important to Libras. They even have trouble making more mundane decisions as a result of this borderline obsession with fairness. They love to gather all the relevant information about a general situation and then carefully sift through it to come up with a point of view that takes into consideration all the valuable components of each side. This is a great quality, but can sometimes lead to insanity in Libra’s partners as even dinner plans can be fraught with crisis level decision making stress.
Just make those little decisions for them. If you can’t decide between Chinese and Thai, just figure out which one you would rather, and then make it happen. Don’t mistake this indecision for a desire to have all of their life decided by others. On the contrary, it is a good lover’s job to help Libra overcome the ineffectualness that can sometimes arise as a result of this personality trait. Don’t let them lose out on opportunities because they are so concerned with making the right decision that they make no decision.
You may notice that for some Libras, this striving for balance results in a real aversion to conflict. Don’t worry about their feelings though, they are more worried about hurting yours. They would much prefer to work out arguments with dialogue, and will usually only be satisfied when both sides are shown and each part of the disagreement in resolved.
The most obvious warning regarding pursuing a relationship with a Libra can be found in precisely the same place that their greatest strengths lay. Many times Libra can be found mired in a very real and difficult “love triangle.” This means that their hearts are truly divided, and thought they can’t make up their mind as of yet, the air aspects of their sign means that when they do, it may be made coldly and with a detached calculation. This can lead to broken hearts and deeply hurt feelings and despite the intuitive knowledge that a Libra has of other people, their self preservation is made manifest through this emotionally removed decision making process. Don’t run away, just keep yourself protected until your Libran lover makes a decision, and trust me the wait is worth the reward.
Best Match for Libra
As a star sign ruled by the element of Air, your safest bet, Libra, is probably one of the other two Air signs, i.e. GEMINI or AQUARIUS. The favorable 120° – or 4 signs – spacing between Zodiac signs in the same element makes for an especially harmonious relationship and a level of compatibility well above the norm.
Both Gemini and Aquarius are good compatibility matches for Libra since they share Libra’s thinking, objective and people-oriented approach to life. However, Gemini probably just beats Aquarius as the better compatibility choice for Libra. Gemini makes a witty and entertaining intellectual companion for the sign of the Scales and, as a mutable sign, finds it relatively easier to adapt itself to Libra’s demanding partnership needs.
Really excellent too, in terms of their ability to harmonize with logical Libra, while at the same time helping it to galvanize it into action, are the passionate Fire signs LEO and SAGITTARIUS, spaced by 60° – or next but one – from Libra. Many believe this kind of Air-Fire combination is actually the ideal – and surely it’s no coincidence that a high proportion of successful compatibility matches are between people with birthdays two Zodiac signs apart.
So what about another LIBRA as a good compatibility match? On the plus side, you’ll definitely know what makes them tick, since they embody so many aspects of yourself. Especially with a Libra of the opposite sex, the chances are you’ll be strongly attracted to their best Libran qualities – like their friendliness, charm and intelligence.
But because we don’t tend to like our bad points when we see them reflected in somebody else, there will also be things about Libra people – most likely their procrastination and insincerity – that you’ll positively hate! If so, better take a long hard look at yourself in the mirror!
Worst Match for Libra
The truth is, Libra, your ideal compatibility match will rarely simply be a clone of yourself (how boring would that be!). But neither, for that matter, should their star sign be too astrologically antagonistic to your own. For this reason, you should be cautious – in the absence of redeeming features – about folk born under the star signs of CANCER and CAPRICORN. Because both these signs are at a challenging 90° angle (or 3 sign spacing) from Libra, the differences between you may be so vast, the chances are they’ll be too incompatible – and just too much hard work!
Of these two star signs, Capricorn qualifies as the worst possible compatibility match for Libra. Due to its laid-back outlook and desire for constant companionship, Libra may find it harder than most other signs to cope with Capricorn’s unrelenting self-discipline and workaholic lifestyle.
Signs spaced at 150° (or 5 signs) from Libra, such as PISCES, can also present more minor compatibility challenges. However, although traditionally considered to be ‘awkward’, and involving signs in conflicting elements, 150° relationships aren’t necessarily quite as bad as they might appear. Okay, these may not be your first choice, but neither should they be your last. So don’t make the mistake of writing them off as unsuitable – in many cases a love match could work out fine!
Why Opposites Attract
Rather than someone who conflicts with you, Libra, what you’re really looking for, from a star sign compatibility point of view, is the kind of person who is able to balance or complement you in some way. For this reason, the sign diametrically opposite your own, i.e. ARIES, can be a great compatibility match for you, Libra. Opposite star signs are often magnetically attracted to each other, their strong yin-yang polarity giving them the potential to complete each other like two halves of a perfect whole.
