Aries and Libra

The attraction between natives of Aries and Libra is common, but not one that is necessarily long lasting. These are two very different characters with widely varying personalities. The Aries individual is a firm believer in equality of the sexes and equality in the romantic arena. Initially, he or she will be amused at Libra’s attempt to dominate the relationshp, but when Aries comes to the realization that his or her Libra partner is deadly serious about this, conflict is sure to arise. Here, both partners will be impulsive and that could be one of the reasons for an initial attraction. Those governed by Libra are always willing and ready to help others, which the Aries subject scorns as being a gross waste of time…particularly if the Aries native believes the person in question capable of doing better if only he or she would employ a little more effort. In addition, the Aries partner is not above using Libra’s inferiority complex to his or her own personal advantage. Those ruled by Aries may sadistically endeavor to keep Libra down, especially if there has been a loss of respect in the relationship. This state of affairs will not last long since the inherent Libra love of romance and tendency to wander will soon put the Aries partner in a combatant mood which, in turn, disgusts the harmony-loving Libra individual. This union is likely to be a shaky partnership at best.

Within the Zodiac Wheel, Aries and Libra are located directly opposite one another in polarity. Thus, each Sign possesses qualities that the other lacks. This, combined with Libra’s natural desire for harmony, can result in a balanced relationship. However, Aries is associated with self while Libra is associated with partnerships…and that is not the only difference. Aries is impulsive, excitable and eager to engage in new and exciting ventures. Libra is indecisive, peace-loving and prefers an approach which is calm and smooth. Still, the Aries partner may learn from these Libra traits that his or her own way is not necessarily the best course of action. There is much physical attraction here…common to all Zodiac Signs that are opposite in polarity. In addition, the connection between these two is amazing when good and extremely challenging when bad. All polarities possess energies that are liable to tangle or knot if understandings cannot be reached. Nonetheless, the charming and cultured Libra partner can teach the brash Aries native something about style. Libra prizes harmony in a relationship and will go to great lengths in order to maintain tranquility. In return, the Aries partner will be very decisive and can teach the wavering Libra native how to rely on intuition for answers.

Aries is ruled by the planet Mars and Libra is ruled by the the planet Venus. This usually results in a magnificent match. Mars and Venus combine splendidly as each is one side of the love relationship coin. Mars is associated with the passion of romance while Venus is associated with the beauty of romance. Thus, this is a wonderful combination. Aries is governed by the element of Fire while Libra is governed by the element of Air. Air fuels Fire and helps it to grow and spread. Aries natives can have a very positive effect upon Libra’s growth, ideas and progress. In addition, Aries will help the Libra native to put his or her ideas into action. However, working as a team may present challenges on occasion courtesy of the polarity of these two Signs. The impetuous and fast-paced approach to projects employed by Aries may conflict with Libra’s more balanced and intellectual approach. Still, both individuals have wide-ranging interests and at the end of a long and active day, the Aries partner can come home and tell his or her interesting stories to the more cerebral Libra. Both Aries and Libra are Cardinal in quality. Hence, each partner here has much initiative, but is sadly lacking in follow-through abilities. They will tend to start things they are never going to finish…be it a job, project or relationship. The Aries partner will appear to be the leader because of his or her energy and forceful nature, but it is Libra who will lead from an intellectual standpoint. Both partners will want to be in charge, but Aries is liable to use force and, on occasion, intimidation to get what he or she desires, whereas Libra will employ charm and, on occasion, manipulation. Thus, compromise is essential to the health of this union. However, diplomatic Libra has a much easier time adapting to compromise that does his or her Aries partner, who strongly dislikes yielding to another person and views it as submission. Therefore, the Libra individual may have to give in more often to the wishes of Aries in order to maintain the peace that Libra natives cherish so dearly. The harmony resulting from a combination of Mars and Venus can bring balance between self and other…a wonderful learning experience for both Signs. Each is capable of bringing to the relationship what the other is missing and can make for a truly magnificent balance.

In essence, this combination may be a great match. The warm and passionate Libra will make a welcoming home for the fiery and impetuous Aries…particularly if both partners are on the same cultural and intellectual level. Aries will appreciate the passion and emotion of Libra, but too much of either could bring about destruction. In short, this union is all about balance and if this can be achieved, the relationship could go a very long way.
