Libra in Love: Relationships & Love Compatibility
Air sign Libras are our fair-minded, everyone-should-get-along diplomats with hearts of gold and style to be envied. Libras are associated with the 7th House of Partnerships in the astrological birth chart, so it’s no surprise that their main focus in life seems to be centered around getting along and creating meaningful partnerships.
Looking for someone to make a great impression on your family? Look no further than charming Libra, who always knows what to say! Manners are of much importance to Libras as well, and they will go out of their way to not offend anyone, so even if you are having a side argument, they will know how to put on a polite performance and not embarrass you in front of anyone.
Libras want you to love them - and will sometimes go out of their way to make sure you do. These are definitely the people-pleasers of the zodiac! Libras are fabulous partners, and with enough patience, confidence, and appreciation, anyone who finds themselves in a relationship with one of these charming and intelligent creatures will be satisfied indeed. Libras work best over time with more self-confident partners who aren’t prone to jealousy - they know their flirtatious Libra is just having some fun - and are ultimately happiest at home with them.
As are steady Earth sign Taurus, love and harmony-seeking planet Venus rules over our lovely Libras. Creature comforts and luxury are desirable to the sign of the scales, so lavish gifts, pampering and dinners out will go a long way into winning their hearts. Libras can always see many outcomes, it can be natural for them to remain optimistic, even in the face of negativity.
Their Cardinal sign traits may also help here - they like to take action, to start something, to initiate. This combined with their desire to find harmony almost ensures they will be perpetual cheerleaders, but even they are allowed to have a bad day once in a while. As their partner, it will be important to make sure you are taking as much notice of what’s going on with them as they are for you.
Let’s take a look at the unique characteristics of the sign of the scales!
- you are quite trusting and forgiving
- you are adaptable and flexible
- you are insightful and emotionally intelligent
- you are affectionate and feel more secure when in a relationship
It’s hard to annoy a Libra - because they want to achieve an environment of peace and calm, they are more than willing to accept an apology if it’s heartfelt. This should not be taken advantage of though - they will eventually tire of people who prove they cannot be trusted. Part of Libra’s intoxicating charm is their ability to make you feel like you’re the only person in the room - and this is due to their innate ability to read the room and the people in it. Intellectual Libras have an uncanny way of knowing when things are, ‘off,’ and this can be both a positive and a negative if you’re in a relationship with them.
- you have a supremely hard time making up their minds
- you can be co-dependent
- you can come across as two-faced
- it’s easy for you to fall into - and out of - love
Libras want everyone to get along - so when faced with too many choices, they want to be sure to carefully consider every possible outcome. This can make Libras seem wishy-washy or non-committal, but they may just need a little more time than everyone else. Also due to their ability to consider many views and be non-offensive, they may tell you something slightly different than you heard it from someone else. In reality, they are likely just not taking sides, but on the negative, they can seem like they are playing both ends against the table. At their worst and most secure, Libras will accept a flawed partnership, rather than be alone.

Zodiac Signs Least Compatible with Libra
Cancer, Virgo, Aries, Capricorn
Libras should make sure they aren’t run over by a stronger-willed partner who tries to rush them into a decision they will live to regret - or at least to question if they did the right thing without having a chance to think it all through. Fellow Cardinal signs Aries, Cancer and Capricorn may become competitive with Libra, wanting to lead the way themselves and getting frustrated when Libra doesn’t immediately jump into the boat.
Disciplined Capricorn and Virgo may tire of Libras ‘wishy-washy’ ways and Libra may find it hard to connect with the more stoic Earth signs, who seem less inclined to care about the beauty in the world and more on tradition, routine and hard work. Water sign Cancer’s moodiness, sometime passive-aggression and tendency to be jealous will not float well with the more free-spirited Libra.
Air signs are dreamy and thoughtful - so other zodiac signs who need a faster answer from Libra, or who need decisions and ideas to be based on rationality and logic will not necessarily be a good match here. on the one hand, an ‘opposing’ love match could prove challenging, but you could also learn a lot from each other here, if you both have the patience and compromise to stick it out.

Leo Relationship Compatibility
A relationship with a Leo can be demanding. You both like attention and you both love to be in love. The problems arise when you start looking at what you stand to get, rather than what you have to give. There’s a lot of indulgences here, but also a lot of hurt feelings too.

Virgo Relationship Compatibility
You’re as different as night and day, and this is going to be a hard relationship for both of you to navigate. You’re a social butterfly but Virgo likes what’s familiar. You will be off and running on a whim, but careful Virgo likes to plan.
You’ll find Virgo’s criticism hard to take, and they won’t understand your indecision and lack of practicality. The only way that this is going to work is if you both take your patience pills and your tolerance tablets — otherwise, you’ll find Virgo weighs you down, and they’ll find you far too irresponsible.

Libra Relationship Compatibility
Oh my! A relationship with another Libra is certainly going to have its share of ups and downs. You’re going to be so much alike — and if you are on each other’s good side, great! However, your Libra partner is going to reflect back to you the sides of your sign that you’ve not yet worked out how to master, and no one likes addressing their faults. You’re either going to really get along and be inseparable, or this will fizzle out in a blaze of indifference before it even gets started.
You’re both going to have to carry equal weight to make this work — which is appropriate, being as how you’re the sign of the scales.

Scorpio Relationship Compatibility
If you fancy a Scorpio, then you’ll have your work cut out for you. Scorpio doesn’t do anything by halves, and the relationship is always going to be one-sided. Scorpio will dote on you, and that might attract and flatter you initially, but as the relationship deepens, it will start to feel restrictive.
You’ll start to find Scorpio’s stubbornness annoying — and don’t be surprised if the fun factor leaves too, for Scorpio may find your frivolity too infuriating. If this is going to work, you’ll have to teach Scorpio how to lighten up a bit, while learning how to be a bit more serious yourself.

Sagittarius Relationship Compatibility
There’s a definite potential here, provided that neither of you become too clingy. You’ll be right there with Sagittarius’s sense of adventure, and it will inspire you to follow your own dreams and desires. You’ll have plenty to talk about, and you’ll appreciate Sagittarius’s gregarious nature.
There’s a lot of sexual chemistry here, too, as well as a whirlwind of social activities that you’ll both enjoy. You’ll just have to learn to keep up with Sagittarius, without getting too moody about having your own needs met.

Capricorn Relationship Compatibility
There’s not a whole lot of common ground here, and if you’re going to last with your Cappy partner, you’re going to have to be adaptable. You’ll want to go out, the old goat will want to stay home, and — as stubbornness is one of Capricorn’s traits — there won’t be much room for compromise.
However, if you find the right balance between surrendering control and persuade Capricorn to try something new, you might find you’re rewarded by a strong and steadfast partner on whom you can truly depend.

Aquarius Relationship Compatibility
You’re both air signs, so that gets you off to a good start. You’re more lighthearted than your Aquarian lover though, and that takes some balancing. Aquarius is determined, and very intense, and while that’s intriguing at first, in the long run, it may grow to be oppressive for your free spirit.
Neither of you are in a hurry to get tied down, and that could create problems as the relationship develops. Once you’re both in the groove, though, you’ll have a harmonious relationship that brings a lot of understanding and compassion.

Pisces Relationship Compatibility
If ever there were two sentimental signs, it’s you and Pisces! You’re both sensitive to the needs of the other, want harmony between you, and have lots of plans of what you want to together — and to each other! However, it’s going to be up to you to make sure that those plans are not just all talk, because Pisces does like that little flight of fancy. You’ll have to put the foundations under the fantasies to make them manifest.
This has a great chance of being romance at its finest, providing neither of you are too set in your ways, or so caught up in your daydreams that a dream is all you have.
