Why Aquarius and Libra Fall Hard for Each Other (And Stay Together)
Aquarius and Libra Compatability
No matter how you slice it, Aquarius and Libra will naturally be attracted to each other. Whether as friends or something more, the combination is an absolute powerhouse.
Why Are These Signs Attracted to Each Other?
They will attract each other in the way they converse and also the way they think, paving the way for a heated romance. Aquarius will feel accepted by Libra, which is a big deal for a sign that's often judged and seen as too unpredictable.
Libra will appreciate that Aquarius is trying their best to see the world as authentic—Libra wants things to be fair and balanced, impartial, and has a love for equality. Aquarius blends well with this because it can't help but question the nature of reality. The two can easily have a long-term relationship, some great creativity, and are constant movers and shakers.
A Powerful ESP Connection
What I know of an Aquarius-and-Libra combination is that many of their conversations will be memorable. They will have a genuine ESP connection, whether or not they decide to be anything other than friends.
I think wind signs often look into other places outside of the mind to get a spark, so this can make it difficult on the air signs and their compatibility. As the sign who more naturally flows into relationships, Libra will need to help Aquarius connect.
Aquarius constantly questions the nature of relationships and their own identity. This is a great quality and a great cleanser for getting rid of toxic portions of a relationship, but Aquarius often fears if it opens up its mouth, it will ruin everything. So they hide their gift, as many zodiac signs learn to suppress (wrongly!) what makes them special here on this planet. All 12 zodiacs have lessons on matters of love. An Aquarius needs to accept their nature and go about critically thinking and turning over every rock for analysis.
Balancing the Libra and Aquarius Pairing
A Libra may help the Aquarius cut down on some of their crazier ideas while giving them the satisfaction of acting on others. The same goes for the Libra, who can come up with some wild ideas, both good and bad; as much as they love balance, I know plenty of Libras who are gamblers, addicts, and into just a lot of hardcore nonsense.
I think Libra sometimes gives up on its nature and doesn't want to find the balance, the harmony, the fairness. Aquarius can be warm to Libra here as the Libra experiments with the world, giving it a nourishing direction as it tries to find balance.
Both of these signs have strong flirtatious vibes. Aquarius is a never-ending font of eccentricity, originality, and curiosity. Libra is forever full of charm, sweetness, and charisma. But Aquarius may get annoyed with Libra if Libra fake-charms their way through something; Aquarius will beg you to be yourself, preferring that you be detached and honest than fake niceness.
Libra is fascinating because it sits between Virgo and Scorpio, which in my opinion are total opposites. This is why Libra seeks balance and harmony. They sit between the super independent, hard-working, and overly cultivated Virgo and the ever so passionate, devotion-seeking, sarcastic, devilish Scorpio. Straddling these two worlds makes for a hell of a person.
Libra has all the parts that attract Aquarius to Virgo and Scorpio, but without many of the downsides. Considering the Internet is full of information about Aquarius and Scorpio being attracted to each other, I think Aquarius would benefit and be happy (if not happier) with a Libra.
A Libra may get confused by the Aquarius who is unpredictable because they are fully weird and fully normal. Most Libras that I know are not as good at hiding their "weird" behavior, but that's okay; Aquarius is often attracted to Libra precisely because of their fresh, oddball personalities. And I think Libra can't help but like Aquarius, who is also weird and unpredictable, but better at hiding it. This can be intoxicating for both signs.
This combination can move through the world without having to dive into other parts that they might not understand as well—a Cancer can overwhelm an Aquarius with its emotions; a Virgo's crushing perfectionist mandate can scare Aquarius off; and a fire sign could force Aquarius to neglect their intuition and try too hard to assert their own inner fire, causing the Aquarius to collapse in on itself.
Aquarius wants a friendship first. They don't understand why you would want to delve into a relationship too soon, and they may question how genuine you are being.
A Profound and Long-Lasting Combination
Libra and Aquarius relationships are great for the world. They see where things are falling short, ask pertinent questions about reality, and generally help the world mature. Both are in the latter half of the zodiac, making them mature, softer signs.
This kind of relationship—whether as friends or lovers—can last for an incredibly long time. You two have plenty to learn from each other, and you have the type of personalities that allow you to continually access to that new knowledge. Together, you'll be able to overcome anything.
Aquarius is the heart of winter; Libra is the beginning of autumn. They both can reflect on the real pressing matters of what is around them, often remembering that death is right around the corner. But they won't let morbid thoughts bring them down; they will drink in the thrill of life rather than get bogged down by the promise of death.
The nice part about Aquarius-Libra connections is that they admire each other, they are both rebels, they get along, and they are more powerful together. The Aquarius will not care about what other people think, while a Libra may try to be a people pleaser.
Can Two Air Signs Be Together?
Yes, but it takes some work. Without a concerted effort to maintain balance, a relationship between two air signs can spiral out of control.
The two of you can wear yourselves out if you argue on end to get all your words out. Having a shouting match will hurt you both. Don't go crazy cleaning the house to avoid talking, either—this is a defense mechanism.
Instead of overthinking and oversharing, meditate, pray, be still. Be like water. Flow. Try fueling that powerful air energy somewhere else, because you are both creative. You must be balanced in the air—which is Libra's gift.
How to Make a Relationship Between Air Signs Work
Be open to what your partner has to say and know they are always supportive of you. Aquarius can be surprised by how they feel because it'll sneak up on them. Aquarius absorbs emotions and bottles them up until they overflow. You'll think the Aquarius is perpetually calm and wonderful, and then they'll have an energy burst. This is why you should never, ever call an Aquarius unemotional. You don't understand Aquarius if you say they have no emotions. And you'd be silly to say as much of any sign—all zodiacs have emotions.
Tips for Happy Aquarius-Libra Relationships
Be comfortable with each other and do your own thing. You don't need anyone else telling you what a valid relationship is or how things need to be done a certain way to be successful. You guys just need to go with your own intuition.
Be there for each other in your weaknesses. Neither of you likes being vulnerable, and you will both do weird things to keep from having to be vulnerable to the world. Try your best to fight that feeling of defensiveness; if you open up to each other, you will find a new and immensely fulfilling depth in your relationship.
Be honest and open. This is both a loving and sarcastic bunch. Aquarius won't put up with a fake Libra; keep that in mind. Libra will just have to get comfortable with being their full self. And Aquarius may have to stretch their parameters on what is bizarre because Libra will likely shock them a time or two.
Don't be afraid to experiment. Traveling would be good for both of you. Or if you can't get away, try new things in the city or town you already live in—you will find excitement in trying new places.
Go with the flow. Libra may take the dominant, yang role of the relationship. Aquarius can really get weirded out by leading, especially female Aquarius. She can lead if she has to, but it's not exactly in her nature; it'll just confuse her and make her feel like her natural charms are not working right.
Find your Yin-Yang balance. Aquarius is like the moon, not like the sun. But not every Aquarius will be a yin, considering their own unique nature. You can have two yins or two yangs, but hopefully, you figure it out fast and can make sense of the relationship rather than dish out the wrong roles to your mate. I think it's a great idea to study yin-and-yang along with the zodiac. There are some nice metaphors in all of these philosophies to ultimately teach us about love and turn us away from manipulation.
Remember: Any Zodiac Pairing Can Find Love
Each combination takes great care and study to understand, but they are all necessary to help the world move into a better understanding of love. This is why I never say a combination has bad compatibility—obviously the planet shows that every combination has worked at some point. We are here on this planet to learn about love. You need to first find self-love before you move onto a relationship; otherwise, you will be offering something too toxic and unstable to sustain.
