Libra and Aquarius usually get along well and understand one another on a deeper level. They enjoy a great intellectual rapport and should have a harmonious relationship because although both like to debate, neither is inclined toward fighting over emotionally charged issues unless their ascendants are in more combative signs. In fact, both prefer to live in their heads and process things rationally rather than through the distorting lens of feelings.
The rapport between Libra and Aquarius tends to be easy and laid back, which is great for day-to-day living, though this match may lack passion in a romantic relationship unless other elements in their natal zodiacs provide some sparks. However, the conversation should be great and these two are likely to share some interests, creating common ground over which to bond. If a deeper relationship develops, it is more likely to resemble a solid friendship with bedroom privileges than a stormy romance with an inevitable expiry date.
Both Libra and Aquarius tend to be quite sociable, but Aquarians are more inclined to use their social time productively by joining groups involved in charitable or political activities or working with others to do or produce something. This Aquarian activity-focused socializing can inspire Libra to take up new causes and activities as well. Libras, in turn, have the diplomatic skills required to gently steer Aquarians away from some of their more crazy or detrimental pursuits without being perceived as oppressive. This is important, because Aquarians are fiercely freedom-oriented and stubborn, and they resent those who tell them what to do. Libras are skilled at persuading others without making them feel as though they’re being ordered about, which is a much-needed ability in a relationship with an Aquarius.
Libra and Aquarius will usually give one another the social freedom each requires, allowing for friendships and hobbies outside the primary romantic partnership. Libras are more relationship-oriented than Aquarians, who tend to spread their energies amongst a wider circle of people even when sexually faithful. However, this shouldn’t be a deal breaker, as Libras are very good at understanding and accommodating other people’s perspectives and allowing them the space they need to pursue their own interests. Overall this is a highly compatible match for friendship and romance.
Note: There is more to astrological compatibility than sun signs alone. Other elements in a person’s natal zodiac also play a role. Ascendants (rising signs), moon signs, and other planetary placements and aspects also shape personality and affect compatibility. For example, a Capricorn with Leo rising will be more extroverted than a typical Capricorn, and a Taurus with Aries rising or the moon in Sagittarius will be more compatible with Sagittarius than a typical Taurus.
