Which Zodiac Signs Are The Most (And Least) Compatible With Libra
Love, Zodiac

They're not just social butterflies, but social justice warriors as well.

Libras are one of the most popular zodiac signs in astrology. They’re like the head cheerleader in high school who didn't have to be nice but was, or the star football player who did drama — just super-outgoing, down to earth, and non-judgmental.

One of the most popular Libra traits this zodiac sign has is charisma, and for zodiac compatibility, that's good news, especially when horoscopes tell you how charming and attractive they are.

But when it comes to Libra compatibility, only some zodiac signs can hook them.

The Libra personality might be extremely flirty, but they take love and trust seriously. The truth is, they don’t love being by themselves and would much rather be at a party than home alone. However, they do have their more introspective moments, and definitely need to decompress from time to time.

Libras need to be liked, which can shape their actions and leave them vulnerable to others. Their own needs can get overlooked when they’re too focused on what other people will think about them. They tend to be somewhat indecisive, but once they make a decision they stick with it, even if they sometimes regret the choice they made.

There’s no one who hates injustice more than the Libra zodiac sign, and there's no better advocate for those who have been treated unfairly. You want a Libra on your side, even if it’s annoying when they’re able to see and understand the opposing views as well.

But in terms of zodiac compatibility, how does this social butterfly get along with the other zodiac signs?

Libra & Aries

Although in many ways Libra and Aries are opposites, Libras are more relationship-centered and Aries more self-centered, but still they go together well. The Libra/Aries relationships tend to last.

They have a lot of sexual chemistry which also binds them together. They have much to give and learn from each other. 

Libras take too long making decisions because they think things out so thoroughly, whereas Aries tend impulsively take action. Libras are gracious and are sometimes taken aback when Aries gets in a confrontational and argumentative mood.

Libra encourages Aries to develop their sensitive side, while Aries can help motivate Libra to get off their ass and achieve their goals. Both signs can be competitive and have no problems competing against each other.

When their relationship is good, it's amazing, but if it's not, their breakups can be brutal. 

Libra & Taurus

In some cases, when Libra and Taurus come together, they're like two halves of a whole. If they take their time and don't rush into anything, they can have a lasting relationship.

Both Libra and Taurus have a deep appreciation for the finer things in life, sensual pleasures, and security in a relationship. They love to go out to the theater, a restaurant, or an art gallery, but can also be content having a quiet evening at home.

Both signs tend to make an entrance at parties and know how to make a dazzling first impression. However, Libra can be flirty and Taurus tends to be jealous, so there can be some conflicts there. What's good about a union between these two is if Taurus gets stubborn, Libra is able to use their diplomatic skills to smooth over any negativity.

From Taurus, Libra can learn how not to be a doormat and how important it is to stand up for themselves. 

Libra & Gemini

First of all, Libra and Gemini make great friends, and having that friendship makes a strong foundation for a romantic relationship. These two are on the same wave-length and they love to go out and have fun together.

They're both extremely social, intelligent, and love to communicate. Decision-making isn't either of their strong points, but they're better at it when they do it together.

One of the issues that a Libra and Gemini alliance might have is regarding money: Libras are freer about spending it, and Gemini is more careful with it. Money is often a stressor for many couples, but if Libra and Gemini use their great communication skills and discuss their feelings, any serious trouble could be avoided.

When Libras and Geminis are together, there is an incredible energy between them and it can feel as if there's nothing they can't do. 

Libra & Cancer

The Libra/Cancer relationship can be difficult. They have trouble understanding one another. Libra doesn't see why Cancer is so emotional and has to express and dissect all of their emotions, and Cancer doesn't get why Libra isn't more forthcoming with their feelings.

Libras look at the big picture and Cancers are more myopic, so they tend to see things with completely different perspectives.

They both love the arts and family and can bond over that, but at some point, Libra will do something (usually inadvertently) to piss Cancer off. Once Libra realizes they're on Cancer's s*** list, they won't want to discuss the problem in a way that Cancer will find satisfying, and that will be that.

Their relationship may survive but it will never be the same.

Libra & Leo

Libras and Leos get a long great. Libras admire Leo's leadership qualities and how they're able to captivate others. Both signs like to be the center of attention, though Libra will allow Leo to take centerstage.

Leos tend to be a very good influence on Libras especially with their optimism, loyalty, and their willingness to help others.

Sometimes Libra can find the energy level of Leos exhausting, but Leo will encourage Libra to push past their tiredness and keep going. Leo also has much to learn from Libra — how to be less aggressive but still get your needs met, how to see things from other perspectives, and how to not take certain things too seriously.

At the end of the day, Libra and Leo are very good for each other.

Libra & Virgo

Libra and Virgo get along pretty well as long as Virgo doesn't end up doing all the work in the relationship, while Libra enjoys the benefits. Libra admires Virgo's smarts, compassion, and ability to master anything they put their mind to. The problem is that Virgo is much more fastidious than Libra.

Libra may not understand or even recognize the importance for Virgo doing things like putting things back in their place, making the bed in the morning, or keeping the house clean, and that could lead to conflict. Libra also doesn't do well with criticism and Virgos can be highly critical at times.

But Virgo will always be there when a Libra needs them, and that's huge in Libra's book. 

Libra & Libra

Ask a Libra which is the best sign of the zodiac and they'll tell you it's Libra! It's not just because it's their sign, it's because they probably have a lot of Libras in their lives. Libras understand each other.

Of course, not all Libras are the same, but to varying degrees, they have many of the same personality characteristics. A Libra isn't going to start a fight over nothing, nor is a Libra going to hurt someone for sport. Libras get each other and they genuinely like each other.

Libras are well-balanced and want to be in relationships, so clearly, if both signs are Libra, they're going to do whatever they can to make their relationship last.

Libra & Scorpio

The Libra and Scorpio combination is tricky. They both need a well-balanced and secure relationship. Scorpio tends to be a bit of a brooder, which will cause Libra to try to distract them out of it. Scorpios tend to get jealous and may not understand Libra's need to flirt just to keep in practice.

Then, there are the lying issues. Libra thinks nothing of an occasional white lie, especially if it will help avoid conflict later on, but Scorpio can't abide lies of any kind. Scorpio's intensity and need to control may make Libra act out in strange, irrational ways.

Ultimately, Libra may need more freedom and independence than Scorpio is willing to give them, but for a while, their relationship will be incredibly passionate.

Libra & Sagittarius

Libra and Sagittarius make better friends than they do life partners. Libras are all about long-term relationships, and Sagittarius not as much. It's not that no Sagittarius wants to settle down, but it's definitely not at the top of their list.

A Sagittarius needs a certain amount of freedom in their relationship and while Libra can appreciate that, they still need some measure of security.

The good thing is that Libras and Sagittarius share a love of laughter, of exploring new places, and are seekers of wisdom and understanding. Libra may feel that Sagittarius is too self-centered, and Sagittarius may feel that Libra is too superficial.

Unfortunately, at some point, Sagittarius will say something tactless that will hurt Libra's feelings and cause Libra to want to distance themselves emotionally from Sagittarius. Sagittarius sensing tension will probably decide to take off for parts unknown.

Any conflict between the two won't be worked out, and the relationship will disintegrate.

Libra & Capricorn

Libra and Capricorn may not have an obvious compatibility — one is a little more work-driven and inflexible, while the other is more unrestrained and lazier — but together they're able to combine their strengths and weaknesses and form a good partnership. Libras are able to help Capricorn loosen up, and take more time to relax and have fun.

Capricorn helps Libra to focus and create long-range goals. When Libra sees Capricorn's determination and discipline, it motivates them to cultivate those qualities as well.

Libras help Capricorn to see the brighter side of life, and Capricorns help Libras to be more realistic. 

Libra & Aquarius

Both Libra and Aquarius are air signs, so it's not surprising that they're very compatible. They're both intelligent, creative, and care deeply about humanitarian causes. Both like people, but Aquarians are better at accepting people for who they are, quirks and all.

Conversations flow easily between these two signs, as long as it doesn't get overly emotional on Libra's side. Aquarians tend not to be comfortable with any kind of emotional outburst. Aquarius may not be as romantic as Libra would like, but Libra is okay with letting Aquarius know what it is they want from them romantically.

These two signs have enough in common to create a bond, and enough differences to keep them interested in each other.

Libra & Pisces

Libra and Pisces not only make great romantic partners, they make great friends as well. They both are artists at heart, want to be loved, and are very sensitive.

When Pisces get lost in a fantasy world, Libra respect that it's part of their process. Both Libra and Pisces have huge hearts and would help anyone who needs them.

However, Libra can sometimes be emotionally manipulative and may do things like stop talking to Pisces if they feel Pisces isn't giving them enough attention. If Pisces gets hurt, and neither one makes to opening gesture to talk about what's wrong, there will be problems. If their relationship is worth saving, Libra will get over their distaste for confrontation and the two of them can talk things over. 

The connection between Libra and Pisces is extremely strong and will help them to survive any challenges their relationship might face.
