The Sign of Justice and the Water Bearer Do Have The "Air Similarity" But Differ in the Triplicities

We will continue this series thinking about and commenting on Libra and The Water Bearer. The Contrast of "Cardinality". and "Fixedness" is a place for Contrast and Variety.

Libra (Cardinal) - Aquarius (Fixed)

Aquarius is Air and Fixed. Libra is Air and Cardinal. Their shared Air brings the intellect and ideas in a more philosophical or theoretical way.

Air signs together, however do present interesting challenges. Libra takes their intellect and attempts to bring order and balance and harmony to their world and their around. Aquarius takes its intuitive mind, and in many ways tries to bring a revolution to the current order, or predict how the current order is going to be changed or transformed in the near future. In this sense, they are in an opposition to one another. Since we are talking about attraction or magnetism here, drawing these two souls together, one might want to conclude that there is a larger purpose at work here.

Aquarius might first get approval, then a questioning inquiry, then silence, then a small criticism, then a big “whoa”. The Libra reaction, as the above image declares, could be slow and evolving, but eventually questioning. This is not necessarily destructive, but does predict “adjustments are going to have to be made”.

How does Aquarian remoteness react to the Libra point of view? Well, they get less remote. They can actually get pretty edgy and irritable and downright angry about Libran “negativity”. This can affect the Aquarian and the relationship, and just how strongly held the Libran “dispute” might go. How do they help Libra? The disengagement of the Water Bearer in some ways looks much like the justice and fairness aura that Libra carries with them. Both in a sense, try to avoid subjectivity. Libra does sometimes seem shortsighted, or overly focused. Aquarius opens up the Libran world view.

"Turn the Binoculars?

Turning the binoculars around, the Libra look through Aquarian glasses could really change the way they see things. For many Libra types, this could be broadening and horizon expanding and liberating. For others it could just be hard to adjust to. Since we are assuming love and attraction are driving these people together, we must conclude that they will both affect each other positively so that they can become new together.

Positive Postulate:

A new Aquarian and Libran image can make a new couple. One with elegance and revolution blended together can make a compelling couple; fit for new edgy settings and situations that bring tolerance and compassion together. Because their disputes will not be earth shaking ones, but rather disputatious argumentation, they will carry around with them the picture of poise charm and adventurousness. The Libra might take some of the eccentricity out of the Water Bearer and make them a little more lighthearted and less burdened with their newest thoughts.

Romance Recommendation:

Love for the Libran is relished and an art form of sorts. Aquarius would be introduced to a more physical and enchanting form of romance than they might have conceived in their objective and ethereal visions. Romance could be a real adventure for both of them and be, in the end, quite positively stimulating.

Conflict Quotient:

Discussion, the pull and tug of talk could lead Libra to a speech about continuity and stability. It could lead Aquarius to accusations that Libra was a “stick in the mud”. But never too serious, they could make their way back to each other, after mending fences and establishing their relationship anew.

Peace Parlay:

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 inner peace could help out much when it comes to Aquarian flights of soaring visions of new knowledge. They can seek peace together. How much serenity and sense of purpose they have together could create the basis of their relationship.

Keep Up The Interest Graph:

Libra, always reading, and Aquarius always wishing to write are both potentials for harvesting the new and exciting. They both could provide to the interest library. Aquarius can be an “anything goes” type, and Libra, while always "enchantable", could stand to stay new and holding their own with the latest magazines, websites and blogs.

"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. Aquarius could sample a bit, because of curiosity. However, infidelity takes a lot out of you – money, time, emotional energy.

This is not likely for either, if the relationship is animated and full of challenge. Libra, always on the “qui vive”, could use its excellent charming manner to scan the sights, but again, the tiresome investment of infidelity would probably hold them back. Libra has a deep need for "Appreciation", which is always inside.



Libra, first focusing on the out of this world Aquarian might be truly captured in the beginning. As time proceeded, the two air signs would keep communicating. The adjustments that each makes will determine the viability and strength of the union. Their fun factor and peace of mind quotient would also come into play and help determine just how much tensile strength this union will end up with.

How very true! My boyfriend (Aquarius) and myself a Libra, were together off and on for 22 years. (He passed away at age 65 last winter). He was an optimist and I (the Libra) was the one who paid the bills and tried to make him grow up. In the first few years, it was fun. He had a good sense of humor and would spout off about politics a lot. I never paid much attention to his talk about politics. He was clever -- hooked up solar panels at a camp that we stayed in that had no electricity or running water. Rent was really cheap, though. He was good at art, which I'm not. I used to write fiction, but I don't write anymore. I guess we were two "air heads". He always thought we would win the powerball. Well, now I only buy a ticket once in awhile instead of wasting my money. He (Aquarius) got me interested in Trey Smith's web stuff on YouTube, which I enjoyed. He always was learning something. Even though I moved out a couple of times, I always visited him and whenever he wanted a place to stay, I always let him come to my place. He was always there for me, too.

Attraction is actually more minimal as time goes on in my opinion. If you wish a comment reading, Read the "Triad" article and provide, Sun signs, rising signs and moon signs. Its a free comment for your benefit.

Very accurate,as much as the two enjoy each other's company, commitment is hard for the both to grasp on regardless of the attraction.
