The Lion and The Balances
This series on AstroCompatibility will cover all of the potential matchups in the Zodiac. We will continue this series thinking about and commenting on Leo and Libra. including Leo and Libra at Christofer's new website at: http://www.astrologygetalong.com.
Libra - Leo -
Libra is an Air sign and a Cardinal, action-oriented one. Leo is a Fire sign and Fixed. Libra loves the logic of the law. Hoping the world can be ordered, suddenly, in walks Leo. Leo declares by just showing up that boisterous confidence and liberating pride can really determine how the world goes. Libra can be overwhelmed by Leo, but also impressed. Libra, liking action watches the Cat and says, “I like movement and action. This is promising. And how good looking!” Then the Scales start shaking when they observe the Cat’s stubbornness. It does not move upon slight suggestion, or loud insistence. It just stays there. Happy to be in the pose it struck.
Leo likes the cut of Libra. Libra can make a point, declare itself and reasonably defend its position. It seems they can talk. They can relate. The stream of communication can flow and they don’t break down or blow up. A fight is possible, but, because Libra tries to be noble, it allows for Leo’s sense of nobility. The question of this relationship will depend upon the individual charts. Will they really like each other, and are they compellingly attracted to one another? Moon sign, rising sign, how their horoscopes play out will determine how magnetically attracted they are to each other. The reason this is important is because this relationship will have to bear much communication. However the communication can be productive, though strenuous.
Leo and Libra can come to a great meeting of the minds. Sure, compromise and new attitudes will have to be reached. But these two handsome humans can make something new and strong together – a union, coupling, mating or company. Libra will have to lose its sense of control, but that might be good for them. Leo will have to stop resisting control and advice, and that could be good for Leo. Once they do really let the free flow of new thought through, they could make a new thing.
Leo and Libra can enjoy the classy and the formal and its lustre. The Leo can burn and exclaim with magnificent joy. Libra can enjoy a beautiful balanced coming together. Observing Leonine confidence, the Scales can observe fire and take notes on what wild abandon might be all about.
In conflict or just plain communication, the Libra will always be trying to get Leo’s attention. Depending upon the mood of the Cat, the Scales might meet with diffidence, indifference, arrogance or a royal ear, leaning closely in to hear the voice of the supplicant. Resolution is always possible, it’s just a matter of timing and diplomacy and framing the argument. Leo’s attention being gained, and Libra’s rationale being heard, the two can have the minutes taken and move on.
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 can be bored easily. Their cardinality begs for action. When they are not in action, they tend to go to “stop”. Leo might look over, in its own momentary complacency, and wonder what has gotten into Libra. Then when they both get to moving again, things would be OK.
Keep Up The Interest Graph:
Leo feeling generous and wanting to make a strong impression can go out of its way grandly and do something that will really grab the Scales and shake them to their foundation. Because they are thinking about keeping up the interest - its right there in their notes - Libra would come up with the new and the fresh. Libra and Leo would make this project a continual challenge and do well at it.
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. Libra does not see itself in this way, but they could be attracted to something really compelling. Leo too, wanting to be reinforced at most every level could look for a new thing. Each should be aware of the potential in the other and find comfort in and newness in each other.
ASTROCOMPATIBILITY POSSIBILITY RATING: 65% Positive Long Term - 60% Short Term. Meeting each other one night, they could be drawn to each other’s charms,if they did not talk too much. After they began to generate talk and see how bright they both were, they could take on the work of making the whole new partnership bud and grow and mature.

Please stop calling Leos "cats!" We are LIONS, not "cats!" Big difference. Just like modern astrologers don't call Aries "lambs," or Taurus "cows" and so on. Leo deserves the same respect. We are the mighty lion, not some show kitty. Modern astrologers need to stop that "car" nonsense when they don't call the other signs lesser versions of themselves.

So glad in not friends with my egotistical Leo. I dont stroke egos at all. He wonders why we never dated that's why he gets pissed at every stupid thing and hates having to tell the truth unless it suits his ego. Fuck that, so if you are wondering why the Libra in your life won't date you that's why.

The gender issue is certainly one that can be addressed. However in my writings, I have stayed away from gender in the articles. In the comments however, I have made distinctions if the topic comes up. I think Pachalis, you have a good understanding.

There is no difference between a man or woman Libran... However it is true trying to get with a Libra and they always want the best! Agreed, never overstep any limitations, just sit back and observe her!

With the Libra woman you really do have to "qualify". They are beautiful and romantic, but they like clothes and security. They want to know if you will look good on her arm. It is a totality that she is looking for. Its not that you are not that, its just that she may not see that yet, or maybe she really does just want to stay single right now. I would say: "Keep on being qualified" and don't do any Leo like embarrassing oversteps. Libras like class.
