Which Star Signs Should Libra Date?



Which Star Signs does Libra get along with most easily? What are the best, the worst – and the most intriguing – compatibility matches for Libra? Which Star Signs should a Libra man or woman date?

Libra Compatibility

Because Libra is probably the most agreeable, congenial, and quite simply the 'nicest', of all the Star Signs, few people find it hard to get along with – except perhaps those looking for a little more substance. For this reason, for optimum compatibility, Libra does best with a partner who seeks peace and harmony in a relationship over and above edginess and challenge.

Signs Most Compatible With Libra

As a Star Sign ruled by the Element of Air, the safest bet for a 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.

What About Another Libra?

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!

Signs Least Compatible With 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. When dating an Aries, laid-back Libra can benefit from its opposite Sign’s tougher and more decisive approach. Libra’s tendency towards procrastination is less likely to prove a problem when it has an all-action Aries by its side.

Neighboring Star Signs

Although Libra is quite different from its immediate neighbors, VIRGO and SCORPIO, in reality it can relate quite well to – and frequently enjoys quite a good level of compatibility with – these Star Signs. This is because people whose Sun Sign is Libra often have Mercury or Venus – which can never be far from the Sun – in the preceding or following Signs of Virgo or Scorpio. Many Libra-Virgo or Libra-Scorpio couples will therefore embody a number of each other’s characteristics and have far more in common than you might initially expect.

Libra Compatibility ‘Wild Card’

Although not technically recognized as a good compatibility match for Libra because of the awkward 150° angle, TAURUS is a popular ‘wild card’ partnership choice for the Sign of the Scales. Both ruled by Venus, the planet of love and beauty, Libra and Taurus are closely linked by their shared desire for peace, harmony and creature comforts and in each other’s company they have the ability to enjoy life to the full!

How Can Libra Improve Their Compatibility?

To improve their chances of getting on better with every Star Sign, Libra should focus on showing others less of their most annoying traits, i.e. their indecisiveness and unreliability, and more of what's most endearing about them, i.e. their charm and understanding. If you're a Libra, in general everyone will find you easier to live with if you're a little more honest and upfront and a little less allergic to confrontation. This will be particularly important in the case of Star Sign matches which present the biggest compatibility challenges for a Libra, as detailed above.
