In Love with the Ideal

Libra and Aquarius are smooth in the love game, and are traditionally very simpatico. Both signs are very bright, socially curious, vivacious and or suave -- prepare for some witty flirting. A good sign is if each feels the excitement of two minds freely sharing on an eclectic range of topics. It'll soon be made clear what the other is passionate about!

First dates have frisson because two air signs have a natural rapport.

Any frictions sensed from the get go, likely have to do with other energies in the full birth chart.

With compatible Suns, these lovers hover at times, as if observers in the relationship. They can quickly overcome disagreements, when this kind of clarity is part of the relating.  But it can feel detached, as if neither wants to go beyond the "idea" of the relationship, into the actual relationship. 

Trappings of Romance

One tip for Aquarius -- don't be stingy with the romance. Libra loves the rituals of courting, like bringing or picking flowers, or an unexpected text that you're thinking of them.

Libra likes to initiate ideas, and Aquarius responds with a wholly original perspective. Aquarius warms to Libra's clear-eyed and balanced perspective. Libra is awed by the leaps of logic and unusual ways that Aquarius frames ideas. Both are mentally stimulated, and this serves as a basis for all their adventures together.

Aquarians are a beat ahead of their time, as receivers of jolty vibes that take time to translate into this world. Libra is an ally for Aquarius, because they're so darn socially at-ease. Libra can show Aquarius how to share their original kookiness, in a way that makes the most impact. If the beloved Aquarius has gotten weird and way too lonerish, Libra charms them back to the social scene.


Aquarius has much to offer Libra, too. The fixed quality of the Waterbearer means they're a sign of sustained mental focus. For Libra, a sign known to lose steam in the actual implementing of ideas, this is good medicine. Aquarius inspires the staying power of Libra, or the full flowering of their idea. Between the pair of them, they've got what it takes to bring brilliant ideas to fruition.

Libra and Aquarius make great collaborators, as designers, parents, educators, writers, business partners or what have you. Often there's a sense of mission, and perhaps a cause that benefits from their passionate activism.

Going Out, Staying Home

Libra is attracted to the detached cool of Aquarius, and comfortable with that airy 'friends' approach at first. The Waterbearer oohs and aahs over Libra's way with style, and graceful public demeanor. Aquarius is more at home among friends, while Libra likes to do things as a twosome.

They're both social animals, and that colors how they spend vacations and weekends. But Libra likes to be romantically wooed, even in a committed partnership, and will want some time alone with Aquarius for some one-on-one.

Growing Edge

If Libra is indecisive, wanting to include all options, Aquarius can be fixed in their thinking.

If Libra seems too practiced in their relating, as if putting on a rehearsed show, that's a turn-off for the spontaneity loving Waterbearer. Libra won't get far with people pleasing. But in the hands of fair-minded Aquarius, they sense the freedom to be truthful, even if it's edgy.

The genius thinking patterns of Aquarius embolden Libra to follow their own threads of inspiration. Aquarius can be stubborn in its dogged pursuit of its interests, and that spurs Libra on to higher heights, too. These two inhabit the world of ideas. As they share life's fascinations in an atmosphere of mutual respect, their love grows.

Upside: Scintillating (and titillating!) exchanges; high ideals; objectivity; urbane; open minds; culture lovers; refined aesthetic; zeal for social reform; always learning; gives the other breathing room.

Downside: Over idealizing; up in their heads; spreading too thin socially; easily diverted; emotionally remote; avoidance of deeper conflicts.

Libra and Aquarius Love Story

Mind blowing Decisions!

I totally relate to this description of Libra -Aquarius relationship. Their are some pretty annoying things though about Libran men - v few of them know how to woo a woman - they think they're the woman, and they'll accept your offer to spilt the bill even tho they ask you out on a date, and you're just being polite!! Libran men, cop on and learn some chivalry! Worst trait of the Librans is their indecisiveness grrrr!
