Libra and Aries Compatibility:
Love, Sex, Trust and Life
Both – Aries and Libra are Cardinal signs. It must be admitted that they are not very good at seeing projects through to the end, though they have any amount of initiative. This tendency to leave matters unresolved is applicable to both – personal and professional alliances. Libra is the leader if looked at from the intellectual angle; Aries leads because of the vibrancy and dynamism. Sometimes Aries can bully and browbeat into getting their own way; Libra acts in much the same manner, but uses charm instead coupled with manipulation. There has to be a lot of compromise if this relationship is to move ahead in the right direction. Libra – which is a lot more tactful, finds this somewhat easier than Aries who sees as submitting to another's will. A Libran could find that he is giving in a lot more than Aries, if only to maintain a harmonious relationship.
There are different variances to their relationship – and each has its own unique feature. Acquaintances and friends appreciate this and some very healthy relationships develop as a result where emotional issues are concerned and personal too. If a commercial goal is the focal point, there is no doubt about the successful outcome if ego clashes can be avoided and both concentrate on moving together. A romantic alliance between them is just as fruitful – especially if this couple happens to be an Aries man and a Libra woman. There is absolute fulfilment between the two. Both these signs enjoy parenthood and have a healthy relationship with their children.
Where a love affair comes into the picture, the inherent difference in their make-up comes to the fore. Even in zodiac chart they are at either ends of the spectrum – the difference being 180degrees. Since both complement each other in what they have or what they lack, the relationship can be a very powerful one. Aries epitomizes the self while Libra is all about partnership. On another front Aries is whimsical, volatile and always ready to jump into a new adventure or venture. Libra on the other hand would much rather ponder and reflect whenever possible! Librans can teach the Aries that what they are sure about is not necessarily the best for everybody.
Most people cannot help admiring the Aries. They belong to a genre that are stubborn, extremely independent and hate to be told what to do under any circumstance. To put in further details – Aries are prone to jump in without giving any thought to the consequences and at the same time are very susceptible to their emotions. Sometime when the result is not particularly favourable, they have to handle the serious regrets that plague them. As leaders Aries are quite happy to take risks. Jealousy is second nature to them. They have a firm conviction that one could possibly know anything better than them. Aries make wonderful beginnings, but are just as bad at completing projects. There is an acute lack of attention to details. Suppose attention needs to be drawn to a fresh project – Aries is very happy to jump into the fray.
Librans and Aries are Air and Fire signs respectively. Fire can rapidly spread if fanned properly by air. Alongside, the growth of a Libra's ideas, progress and development can be very positively affected by Aries. The Libran idea can get a concrete shape with the help of the Aries. However, thanks to the inherent differences between them, a working partnership can be a slightly daunting prospect. The unthinking approach that Aries has to work in hand usually clashes with the Libran approach that is far more cerebral and balanced. But, both signs have wide ranging interests and the Aries is sure to have a stock of fresh new ideas all the time.
There is a magnetic pull that exists between these two signs in any category of relationship. Besides sharing an admiration for each other, their differences actually complement each other. However, if they are not open with each other, there can be major problems.
Mars rules Aries and the ruling planet of Libra is Venus. Being plants of Passion and Love, they generally get along very well as they are basically two sides of the same coin. In this relationship there is an almost perfect equilibrium between the Feminine and Masculine energy. Venus upholds the inherent beauty in romance, while the focus of Mars is on the passion that lies within it.
Aries lacks the qualities that Libra possesses. At times Aries is jealous of the abilities possessed by Libra and finds the qualities of sound judgement and very proper attitude and charm that makes the Libran so popular. Aries is well aware of the Libra's balanced point of view and rationale. Despite this knowledge, he still argues at any given opportunity. When the Libran ponders too long about making up his mind, the Aries gets testy. Realizing that the Libran will probably be right, Aries usually backs off from an open confrontation because the probability of being wrong is very high. Looking at Libra – a latent jealousy is likely to surface because of the exciting life Aries lives and the oodles of new opportunities and no fear.
Sexually both are strongly attracted to each other. To slightly modify a English rhyme – when the rapport is good it is very good, but when it is bad, it is the supreme challenge of all. If there is lack of a proper understanding, the relationship becomes very tangled. In general it is believed that Aries and Libra share a very balanced relationship. Libra has a certain finesse and grace and can be of immense help in 'fine tuning' Aries. Harmony is very important to a Libran and he will walk a very very long walk to maintain it. Aries also contributes positively – he can take quick-fire decisions – which teach the dithering Libran to make up his mind faster.
Aries will die a hundred deaths before confessing their admiration of the Libran ability to keep a check on their emotions. While the Aries is actually requesting, it can take on the guise of a command. When an argument is taking place, all that Aries wants is to win and thus drive home his point. Unfortunately a Libran is extremely logical and proves his point more often than not. This could make the Aries feel small and chip away at his self-confidence. Whereas Libra is not easily ruffled and is very laidback, when Aries overdoes the bullying bit, Libra could fly into an unprecedented rage that hardly ever surfaces. At any cost Librans maintain an even keel. Thanks to the Arian influence Libra does very gradually become a lot more firm and just a tad more ambitious.
The most positive aspect of this liaison is the smooth sailing of events which in turn is the result of the coming together of Mars and Venus. The stability between one and the other can prove to be a greatly beneficial experience for both. Whe both contribute their respective strong points, it can be astounding!
Any glitch that might arise in this romantic union is because of the manner in which Libra tends to preach and the ego that the Aries shows at the drop of a hat. An Aries in order to drive home his point and prove that he is right can deliberately hurt a Libra and enrage even this peace loving sign. An Aries thinks a Libran is not very pro-active; a Libran in turn gets the strong impression that Aries is too impulsive and acts on the spur of the moment – wanting to be the victor at any cost. This association can however have a positive effect on both of them. Aries can take a step forward in becoming more structured -- and a Libra learns to let down his hair and enjoy life a bit. Libra can encourage Aries and provide a salve to their pride. But the Aries has to agree to play fair.
Along with their charm Librans have an aura of mystery about them. They are a strange combination optimism, charm and intelligence; a dreamy segment of people, they keep changing their minds before coming to any firm conclusion. Since there is a marked tendency to find out about every possible angle to a question before moving forward they can seem to cranky and difficult. But at heart Librans are thoughtful and sentimental, who amazingly have an answer to every possible question. They strive for a balance not only in their own lives, but also in the lives of others. Their physical and emotional well-being largely depends on this sense of balance. If thrown into the whirlpool of an argument, all they want is to get out and be in peace.
