Aries' compatibility with Libra: Love and relationships

The emotion and passion of Libra attracts Aries, but is this relationship something that can work long term?

Libra will admire the fiery and impulsive nature of Aries, and a powerful initial attraction is very likely. Both the Aries and the Libra desire an active social life, and this will enable them to get off to a flying start in their relationship. There are differences, notably in the Libra’s preference to take a cold hard look at any situation as opposed to the decisive instinctive nature of the Aries.

Will a relationship formed by an Aries and a Libra last?

Aries is a natural leader, and Libra will be glad to adopt a secondary role. However, with it being in their nature to take a step back and view all the options rather than rush into decisions, they are unlikely to be content to follow the impulsive Aries down a blind alley. The Libra will have to impose their will on the Aries from time-to-time, and the Aries will have to learn to listen.

It’s all very well-being impulsive when things are going well, but the cool head of the Libra will be needed if they are to have any future together. The Libra has much better people skills when it comes to communication and must be allowed to contribute to the decision-making process. If Aries becomes too dominant, then the relationship will have only a limited shelf life.

The powerful initial attraction could be further expressed in their passionate lovemaking. The Aries will be bold and dynamic, and the Libra could well be swept up in a frenzy of excitement. The Libra is the more romantic of the two and, whilst the Aries thrives on new and exciting situations, the Libra will be tending towards establishing some harmony and stability in the relationship. They will need to meet halfway if they are to retain the energy and excitement without jeopardizing the partnership.

The relationship could also hit trouble, with the Aries needing to retain a certain amount of freedom, both individually and socially. If the Libra becomes infatuated with the Aries, there is a danger that they will want to spend every moment in their company and this will be too much of a burden for the Aries. The Libra is also much more understanding and compassionate in nature, and this may perplex and irritate the Aries.
