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 to each other because they both love words. They like to talk, think, write, and everything in between. Aquarius will feel accepted by Libra, which is a big deal for a sign that's often misunderstood.

Libra will appreciate that Aquarius is trying their best to see the world as authentic—Libra wants things to be fair and balanced, harmonious, and impartial. Aquarius blends well with this because they can't help but question the nature of reality. The two can easily have a long-term relationship.

A Powerful ESP Connection

What I know of an Aquarius-Libra pair is that many of their conversations will be memorable. Since they're both air signs, they're open-minded and abstract. They will have a genuine ESP connection, whether or not they decide to be anything other than friends.

Aquarius constantly questions the nature of relationships and their own identity. This is actually a great quality to have. It helps you to analyze your own thoughts and relationships, which can lead to real growth. The problem: Aquarius fears if they open up their mouth, they will ruin everything. They put a seal on their candor.

All zodiac signs to some degree suppress what makes them special here on this planet; there is a fear of imposing and ruining things with our unique traits. All 12 zodiacs have lessons on love. An Aquarius needs to accept their nature and go about critically thinking and turning over every rock for analysis. Aquarius is meant to be a rebel for the greater good—they question the bad parts of society to help bring us to a utopia. (Aquarius is known as the utopian.)

Libra finds some much-needed direction with Aquarius. Libra is indecisive and can over-commit themselves. Aquarius is more stubborn and direct. Aquarius can compassionately help Libra to take charge. Aquarius encourages Libra to advocate for themself.

Aquarius and Libra make for a really cute couple. They're both creative, whimsical, and sweet. Their conversations can go anywhere. They're both a little wacky and aloof, so they get each other.

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 denies its nature and doesn't want to find balance, harmony, or fairness. Aquarius can be warm to Libra here as the Libra experiments with the world, giving them a nourishing direction as they recalibrate.

Both of these signs have strong flirtatious vibes. Aquarius is a never-ending gust 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 genuine and honest.

Harmonious Libra

Libra is fascinating because the sign 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.

Unpredictable Aquarius

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 personality. On a similar note, 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.

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. Together, you'll be able to overcome anything.

Aquarius is the heart of winter; Libra is the beginning of autumn. They both tend to reflect on real and pressing matters; they don't forget that death is right around the corner. Somehow they won't let morbid thoughts bring them down; they'll 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 Good 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 find balance.

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.

Aquarius and Libra In Bed

Generally speaking, when two people have the same elemental sign they tend to jive. They get each other. They know how to get on the same wavelength. It's easy to make their similar elements merge.

Aquarius likes to try new things. They're unpredictable. The good news: Libra likes to say yes. Libra is willing to try new things as well. Aquarius and Libra will likely throw the rule book out the window. They may invent new moves.

Aquarius doesn't want each bed venture to be the same. It'll be a little different each time. Libra is looking for fun, pleasure, and satisfaction. Libra is also a people pleaser, which will come in handy for intimate scenarios.

They're both really good communicators. Aquarius will ask, suggest, and seek consent. Aquarius is also good at picking up on whether Libra really wants to do something or not. Aquarius is good about letting things go and letting Libra make their choices.

These two will be quite spontaneous. They'll want to kiss in unique ways. You might get kissed on your foot, elbow, or shoulder. Who knows? There may be some laughter or tears. Bright colors will likely make their way into the room one way or another.

Aquarius and Libra can be on the same wavelength with no effort.

Tips for Happy Aquarius-Libra Relationships

Be comfortable with each other and do your own thing. Don't let other people tell you how a relationship works, unless you're talking to a relationship counselor. What works for others doesn't necessarily work for you two. Both of you need to listen to your intuition.

Be there for each other in your weaknesses. Neither of you likes being vulnerable, and you will both do weird things to avoid being vulnerable. Avoid being defensive or dismissive; 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 things.

Yang-Yang Relationship. Generally speaking, fire and air signs are considered yang. Earth and water signs are yin. Both Libra and Aquarius have leadership skills because they're considered more of yang signs. They want things to be as bright as the sun, they're attracted to colorful things, they like getting into the thick of action. Even if they're more quiet and introverted, they have really busy minds. Both Libra and Aquarius bubble over with creativity. The two of you will at times have to compromise. Sometimes you have to put what you want on hold for the other person.

Creative House. If you two end up staying together for the long-term, you will have an amazingly eclectic house. Air signs are like birds: they like shiny things. Your house will be unusual, full of strange delights, whimsical colors, and unique touches. Your house may double over as an art gallery.

Remember: Any Zodiac Pairing Can Find Love

Every relationship combination in Western Astrology is possible. All combinations have ended in marriage, divorce, or somewhere between. Every combination takes work. As an astrologer, I see each combo as a recipe. You want to learn how your relationship works, what ingredients to use, and how to mix them together. Some recipes are harder than others, but those often have the biggest payoff.

Of course, some relationships are doomed from the start. It could be because the stars just don't align for you or it could be that you and your partner frankly just don't get each other.

I don't think a combination, just by its template, has bad compatibility—there are examples of successful relationships among every combo. We are here on this planet to learn about love. You need to first find self-love before you move into a relationship; otherwise, you'll be ill-equipped for the song and dance of two people.
