The Balances and The Ram -
This series on AstroCompatibility will cover all of the potential matchups in the Zodiac. We will continue this series thinking about and commenting on Libra and Aries .
Libra and Aries are Air and Fire. Libra is an Air Sign. Aries is a Fire Sign. Libra is Cardinal and Aries is Cardinal. This makes these signs with an action oriented style. It could be a good match, if love factors are there. Libra’s airiness could be fired up by Aries. To make up for Aries dynamism, Libra could add tolerance and patience, but still relate to the forward movement of Aries. Libra and Aries could be great. Aries’s fiery nature and action-oriented style could bring appealing spark. Libra could be the spark absorber. If Libra is seeking more excitement this could be great. If Aries was seeking calmness and outer sense of balance, it could also be positive as a match. The Aries, either gender, would have to value and seek out the Libra soundness and not be off put by what might be perceived as a little predictable and boring. The cardinality of both signs is both a caution and a sign post. Sometimes all action can stumble all over itself.
Aries and Libra would need to be in basic harmony with their values. Positively speaking, if there was basic attraction and similarity of personal values, they could offset their differences and make their unique contributions to the match. Aries fire can be its own dramatic show, and Libran thoughtfulness and hesitance could give the dynamic Aries time to ponder before leaping. Libra could take warm assurance that while they provide stability, things would still keep moving and get done.
Aries and Libra would provide romantic fireworks. Librans are artistic in romance and a winsome attractive Libra could give the Aries something to seek on a continuing basis. Arian flame could light the wick of Libra. Aries could love giving nice things, Libra could enjoy receiving them. If Aries maintained interest, and Libra did not get frivolous, it could be a strong continuing romantic positive.
Libra and Aries could have firey issues getting confllicts resolved. Libra does not like conflict and tends to freeze up if things get too noisy. Aries does have the ability to get confrontational. Libra would ask for more quiet and seek balance during the conflict. Then if Aries takes it up another notch, that put Libra into an emergency state, Libra would want to lower the volume first, and Aries would tend to increase the volume or become even more confrontational. Aries would want to teach itself how to approach Libra. Libra would have to teach itself not to over react.
Life in the end is repetitive and mundane, and so is Romance itself. This factor asks the question: “Can we be bored together over the long term?” Libra and Aries, would want to try to avoid being too bored together. Libra does not like boredom, but can beboring. Aries would tend to fight the boredom issue, and Libra would enjoy Aries attempts. That could be good, as long as their solutions were from the same page.
Libra and Aries could “keep up the interest”. Because of their “cardinality” – ACTION oriented, they would both want to move their issues along to make the lack of interest be a thing to avoid. The only issue here is that they head off in basically, the same direction. If they were attracted to each other in the beginning, there is no obvious reason that would wain. Aries would want new agendas, and Libra, though hesitant, would probably be attracted to new baubles and settings and games.
Seven Year Itchiness:
There are some signs that by their nature are more stable in their love interests and family concerns as time goes on. Others are not. The 7 year itch can trip up any union. Aries, seeking to see what is over the next hill, might fall victim. Libra could be enchanted by temptation and perhaps love the thrill of it, but not seek to upset their world, unless something were quite destabilizing and hurtful. If things were not good, they would both want to be alert during this time, if they valued the basic soundness of the relationship.
ASTROCOMPATIBILITY POSSIBILITY RATING: 60% Positive Long Term – 70% Short Term . Attraction, fun and action could draw these two together in the beginning. As the relationship ages, it would mean that they shared goals and values. Fire and Air is not always the best combination, but the shared cardinality predicts moving along together on fun plans, as life goes on.
