Libra - Leo Love Compatibility




Relationships between Star Signs two Signs apart, like Libra and Leo, seem to enjoy an unusually good level of love compatibility and a high long-term success rate. Most likely this is due to their strong bond of friendship, which continues well beyond the point when the sexual chemistry between the two individuals is starting to wane.


Star Signs which are two signs apart from each other, such as Leo and Libra, are ruled by complementary elements, here Air and Fire, and for this reason are traditionally considered to get on very well in a love relationship! What makes these signs so compatible is that the two are linked by sufficient similarities to allow them to function harmoniously together, yet at the same time there are enough differences to provide an alternative perspective and create that all important spark of excitement.

There's a huge amount of sparkle and polish here! Both being dedicated party animals, Libra and Leo share the same gregarious, pleasure-loving approach to life, which makes for a lot of fun. Socially, Libra and Leo work brilliantly together, both having excellent people skills and being blessed with an equal measure of warmth and charm. With the flamboyant Lion's flair for performing, and smooth Libra's schmoozing skills, they make great networkers and co-hosts.

Of course, Libra and Leo are also quite unalike in that while Leo is a compulsive achiever, Libra tends to be a lot more laid back; and whereas Leo’s strong point is its fixity of purpose (and its weak point its inflexibility!), Libra is much more accommodating (but with a tendency also to be rather indecisive!). However, because these traits balance each other well, Libra and Leo have the potential to be a highly successful team.


Because emotional harmony means everything to Libra, it’s usually prepared to make more than its fair share of compromises and personal sacrifices to try to avoid any kind of unpleasantness. Sunny-natured, magnanimous Leo is also only too ready to make the peace – but only under the huge proviso that it gets its own way and makes all the important decisions.

In defence of its selfishness, Leo claims that because Libra spends so long debating and procrastinating without taking firm actions, it has to take charge or nothing will ever get resolved in this relationship. In turn, Libra complains that Leo stubbornly refuses to look at alternative options and arguments because it’s so arrogant and always thinks it is right.

When a Libra-Leo couple fights (and despite Libra’s conciliatory efforts, it does happen), their conflict-handling styles couldn’t be much more different. The passionate Lion is given to dramatic scenes and flamboyant histrionics which are embarrassing to Libra, who detests emotional outbursts, especially if they occur in public. But to Leo, Air sign Libra’s preference for a polite and cool-headed discussion can seem insincere and a bit patronizing.

In the grand order of things, however, these are minor incompatibilities which somehow only add to the basic emotional attraction between these two star signs.


Sexually, Leo and Libra have much in common, both being incurable romantics and both oozing charm and charisma. Okay, so the Lion's sensitive ego may sometimes be bruised by cagey Libra's yes-no approach to commitment, while to Libra – for whom give and take is very important in love – Leo's constant attention grabbing can seem a bit selfish and immature. To get the best out of this relationship, the Big Cat needs to learn to be less sexually demanding, while Libra has to decide where it stands!


There are a few minor, yet quite significant, mental differences between these two Star Signs. While Leo is very clear-cut and unswerving in its ideas and beliefs, Libra is much more open-minded and ready to change its opinion as and when. As a result, Leo’s main complaint is that Libra is too wishy-washy and too prone to sitting on the fence, while in Libra’s eyes the Big Cat is far too full of its own importance, and much too fixed in its views.

Libra’s strong point, of course, lies in its ability always to appreciate both sides of an argument and to judge issues impartially from a rational and detached point of view. This is precisely where Leo often falls short, as it has difficulty seeing things other than from its own subjective perspective and how they are likely to affect it personally.

To avoid unnecessary delays, it’s best for Leo to take care of any urgent decision making in this relationship. But when time allows for a more comprehensive and thorough analysis, it’s Libra who will always make the wisest choice.


Despite the basically good compatibility between these two star signs, if Leo is too self-centered and bossy – and Libra is too accommodating and too eager to please – they could become badly unstuck in this relationship. This is a pairing that works extremely well, as long as Leo doesn’t take liberties with Libra’s good-naturedness and Libra doesn’t give way to its autocratic partner too readily.

Fairness is vitally important to Libra and despite its obliging nature, if the balance of power in a Libra-Leo relationship is too unequal for too long, sooner or later Libra will have to resort to some decidedly disagreeable measures to tip the scales back in its favor.
