Scorpio - Libra Love Compatibility



What are the chances of success of a Scorpio-Libra love match? How compatible are Scorpio and Libra emotionally and sexually – and what are their relationship strengths and challenges?

Certainly, there are some big differences between Libra and Scorpio due to the conflicting Air-Water combination – the former basically being quite rational and objective, while the latter feels things much more deeply and intensely. Nevertheless – probably because they're next-door neighbors in the Zodiac – consecutive Sun Signs such as Libra and Scorpio are traditionally considered to have quite a good level of love compatibility and a reasonable chance of understanding each other and getting on.

There’s a surprising ability to tolerate each other’s contrasting way of going about things, and they can generally relate to one another’s weak points, which each can help the other to overcome. Scorpio, with its black-and-white, all-or-nothing approach to life, can learn the art of compromise from Libra and the need for a more balanced outlook. In turn, the powerful Scorpion offers Libra the chance to develop greater inner strength and resourcefulness rather than over-relying on others.

In a live-in relationship, Scorpio and Libra can often make quite a good team. Socially they often work well together: with Libra's charm and diplomacy and the Scorpion's hypnotic personal charisma, they have the ability to attract others magnetically towards them. Okay, so Scorpio's bluntness can sometimes cause problems, but because people-pleasing Libra is always ready to smooth things over, no real harm is usually done.

The main difference here is that Scorpio’s feelings are much more complex than Libra’s. As an Air sign, Libra’s responses are governed largely by logic and reasoning, while watery Scorpio reacts more from an instinctive gut level. Although superficially sympathetic, Libra can be surprisingly cool and detached when problems occur and may be unable to provide Scorpio with the depth of emotional support it longs for at moments of vulnerability. In turn light-hearted Libra has a hard time making sense of Scorpio’s brooding intensity and can’t understand why the Water sign can’t just snap out of its heavy moods.

Scorpio and Libra’s conflict handling styles also couldn’t be more different. Libra is keen to smooth over potential conflicts, is polite and diplomatic, and goes to great lengths to avoid any kind of unpleasantness. Scorpio enjoys – and often provokes – a good fight and can be extremely rude and outspoken. Libra is always ready to compromise by finding a fair middle ground, but Scorpio rarely gives in until it has succeeded in getting its own way. Libra is keen to make the peace and forgive and forget, but Scorpio is more likely to hold a grudge and seek its revenge.


Sexually, Scorpio and Libra may not always click initially. Cool-headed Libra can find it hard to handle the Scorpion's intensely passionate and jealous nature – often sparked off by the indecisive Air sign's yes-no approach to sexual commitment. In turn straight-talking Scorpio, who thrives on confrontation, may find the Libran's unfailing 'niceness' rather superficial and disingenuous.

But once their sexual relationship is properly cemented, Libra and Scorpio can form a very close and intimate love bond. Both signs are into togetherness, and want a totally absorbing relationship that will be the most important thing in their life.


Libra will have to be very careful in this relationship not to let itself be subtly pushed around and walked all over by Scorpio. Few star signs have the necessary strength of character to stand up to Scorpio’s manipulative tactics and resist its extraordinarily strong willpower – and certainly not Libra. After all, Scorpio is probably the most powerful of all the Zodiac signs, while Libra is one of the most yielding and conciliatory.

Libra may be willing to put up with an awful lot, but the one thing it will never tolerate, and especially not in its love relationships, is any kind of inequality or unfairness. Despite Libra’s obliging nature, if the balance of power in a Scorpio-Libra relationship is out of kilter for too long, sooner or later it will have to resort to some decidedly disagreeable, and totally out-of-character measures to tip the scales back in its favor again.
