Libra is an air sign with Venus as its ruling planet, and they tend to be extroverted, kind, and friendly individuals with a huge social network. “Libras are charming, clever, genuine, determined, and well-prepared,” says Emily Newman, astrologer, psychic reader and spiritual healer at The Best of Psychic Readers.
Libras don’t like confrontation and are impartial, often believing in a world of peace and fairness and remaining truthful and self-sacrificing in order to help avoid conflict and build harmony. That’s why they have tons of friends and tend to be seen as having a calming presence within their friend group.
While all relationships have the ability to strengthen and develop, some signs may gravitate towards one another naturally and experience ease with communication and compatibility more than others. There are some signs that Libra naturally vibes with as a partner.
These are the signs most compatible with Libra (as well as those most likely to find obstacles).
Who Are Libras Most Compatible With?
1. Libra with Leo
Leo is a fire sign and craves attention and the limelight, and Libra is fine taking a backseat and supporting Leo. “Librans are driven by elegance and grace, whereas Leos appreciate fairness and confidence,” says Newman. Leo cares about their appearance and likes to show off, which will appeal to Libra, who likes to have nice and beautiful things in life and around them.
Leo will also love how Libra is harmonious and can soothe heated discussions, which Leo may find themselves somewhat easily, too. Together, they’re a good match with lots of potential.
2. Libra with Aquarius
Aquarius is an air sign like Libra, so there is an immediate bond between the two. “On an intuitive and intellectual level, they are a perfect combination, as Libra admires the out-of-the-box ideas of Aquarius and values freedom, which Aquarius loves in return,” says Newman. Libra can’t get enough of Aquarius’s forward-thinking mind and their quirks and strange mannerisms.
Aquarius also appreciates Libra’s ability to make them feel accepted and supported, and since Libra tends to be incredibly social and loved within their communities, it can heal Aquarius’ heart and satisfy their longing for belonging and not alone, as well as their authentic selves.
3. Libra with Gemini
Gemini is an air sign that’s all about communication and socializing. With both being super-social air signs, Libra innately understands what Gemini needs in order to feel centered and heard, and naturally prioritizes deep communication as a shared value and need, too.
“Gemini has a wavering mind,” says Newman, and this all-over-the-place kind of thinking style can be a lot for Libra to make sense of and tolerate at times, but Libra generally has a high level of patience and will thus be able to stay patient and entertain it for a while.
Who Are Libras Least Compatible With?
1. Libra with Scorpio
Scorpio is a water sign with a bold personality, and one that can be aggressive and extremely direct at times, at which point the abrasiveness of Scorpio might be off-putting to a Libra that’s focused on harmony and resolve. “Even Libra can lie to keep the peace, whereas honesty is the priority for Scorpio,” says Newman.
Libra may find Scorpio to be combative and intense in their energy, and prefer when situations are chill and mellow, where everyone can get along and preserve the peace. Scorpio admires courage and loyalty, as well as someone who isn’t afraid to speak up and be stern in their opinions and individual thoughts. Libra often folds and conforms to a majority mindset, and this passive tendency might come across as weakness in Scorpio’s eyes, rather than agreeability.
2. Libra with Cancer
Cancer is a water sign, and since they’re so reserved and keep to themselves, they may come off as being cold and unfriendly, as well as inconsistent in their mannerisms. Their emotions swing easily and drastically, so it can be hard to know what Cancer really thinks and how they feel about you.
They’ll shower you with love and kindness and then turn fast and act cold and ruthless, all without the utterance of a single word to explain the reasoning or cause. “Cancer is too sensitive and can not understand the good motive, like Libra does, and sometimes becomes too anxious and judgmental for Libra’s taste,” she says.
Cancer is a reserved sign, whereas Libra is social, and so Libra’s desire to be around others often can make Cancer feel not prioritized or able to create a “home” or some kind of little bubble for them against the world. Libra often finds Cancer’s retaliation and pettiness to be immature, and they fail to understand the way each other thinks and how to handle their emotions.
3. Libra with Capricorn
Capricorn is an earth sign, and they’re incredibly goal-oriented and ambitious, and they tend to be dominant in relationships and take charge. Unfortunately, Libra doesn’t like to be told what to do and controlled, and often choose to be dominant in their partnerships and for things to go exactly as they want.
So, while they have a need for harmony, they also like things to be harmonious as they see fit, too. Plus, Libra likes attention from their partner and to feel like they’re heard, so workaholic Capricorn may not be able to fulfill their demands and make Libra feel ignored and undervalued.
In turn, Capricorn may find Libra to be sensitive and needy and thus create distance, which can cause Libra to feel unloved and not listened to anymore. Ultimately, there are misunderstandings.
