Aries and Libra Compatibility
These scores show the averages for data collected from my clients over the past 20 years. It’s important to note however that individual relationships vary enormously. This is a summarized picture, a real compatibility reading is needed to judge a real relationship. It’s also worth noting that Soulmates can be found in any sun sign match, even those which are statistically likely to have low compatibility.
Aries and Libra compatibility
This article is in two halves, the first is written from the viewpoint of the Aries man or Aries woman, and the second is written from the viewpoint of the Libra man or Libra woman.
From the Aries viewpoint
You’re a man or woman of action, while your partner is a negotiator, planner and problem solver. This can make an excellent combination, but it probably won’t be quite as easy as it sounds.
The challenge you face is that you’re a much more independent person, whereas your Libra is far more likely to be a team player. You’re going to want to trample their ideas and take control of everything. Well, try not to!
Pick the battles which are important to you and don’t try to win them all just because you can. Your partner will look to you for a fair resolution and compromise. As compromise isn’t your strong point just decide in advance which life areas you’ll always agree and defer to them on. Don’t shrug this off, as they will see you as a dictator before you know it otherwise.
Aries Libra Communication
In this area, your Libra partner has you beat. He or she is very likely to be an excellent negotiator and will rarely if ever offend anyone without good reason.
By comparison, you can be blunt, direct, offensive and bossy. They will nearly always have something to say or an idea to share, and if they don’t then it’s likely because they fear you trampling it. Where possible always use a light touch when discussing something with your partner, and wherever possible force yourself to look for a compromise. Again, pick your battles; don’t try to win them all just because your Libra may feel like a pushover sometimes.
Each of you can learn a lot from the other. Your Libra could do with becoming more a little more intimidating sometimes, and who better to teach that than you?!
Aries Libra Long term
Things get more shaky in the longer term in this relationship. Your Libra likes peace and harmony, and may well come across to you as being lazy.
Libra is a thinker, and doesn’t share your need for constant action or adventure. They also often doesn’t like demanding people (er, and that can be you!) Meanwhile, they won’t pay you as much attention as your Aries ego might like.
In short there’s a danger that in the long term your partner may find you a little demanding and tactless, and you’ll find them somewhat flighty, indecisive, and sometimes lacking ambition.
The key to making this work is to flip it around and learn to use each others strengths as a team, with specific roles, rather than focusing on each others weaknesses.
Your Libras strength is their ability to plan and analyze objectively, they’re great at breaking problems down into easily solved pieces. They’re also likely to be a master negotiator, especially with you backing them up. The main thing to avoid is getting frustrated or impatient and trampling your Libra in the process.
Libras are typically very loyal once committed to someone.
Aries Libra sex
The good news is that there’s going to be a lot of sexual chemistry in this relationship. No shortage of a spark here!
The bad news is that your preferred styles are almost opposite, and may need a fair amount of tuning and compromise. Your partner is more likely to prefer slower erotic sex, and really isn’t the consistently spontaneous, fast and frantic type. Try to mix it up a little, and take the opportunity to let your partner bring out your romantic side.
Along those lines, try to avoid talking dirty during sex at the start of the relationship. While Libra’s certainly aren’t prudes, they do tend to prefer the classy and romantic courtship over anything too raunchy
Almost certainly you’ll be in charge in the bedroom, so keep in mind your Libra is likely to be running at speed 5, and you’re closer to speed 10. Slow down, and take the time to set the mood. Aim for a more sophisticated and refined approach and this partner will almost certainly appreciate it.
It’s important to note however that we’re looking only at sun signs here. There are many other planets which can have an equal or greater effect on someone’s personality. Makes sense, as ultimately everyone is of course unique. Generalizing too far based just on sun signs can therefore be misleading.
To fully understand someone or how compatible you are with them we need to calculate those other planet placements from their date of birth, and compare them to your own, and then interpret the results.
This unlocks the real power of astrology, and gives much more useful and specific information: everything from how they view you, how to turn them on, how to avoid arguments with them etc. If you would like to explore this further please see the compatibility readings page.
