How To Get Along – Libra and Scorpio

The Scales and The Scorpion

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 Scorpio. You can get an EBOOK with all 12 matchups for any sun sign, including Libra and Scorpio at the new website by Christofer:

Scorpio is a Water sign, but it’s Fixed. Libra is Air and Cardinal. Librans are about controlling, influencing and getting their way. That is OK, because the Libra has thought everything out and knows that they have others best interest in mind. They do not feel they are being conniving, they feel that they are bringing order, logic and common sense into others lives. Scorpio can be sweetly handled by the charm of Libra. Maybe a couple times, they will succumb to the influence of the rationale Scales. But remember, we are talking about Scorpio. Scorpio breathes intensity and suspicion, just as a way of functioning in the complicated world they have entered. Once they set their minds on Libran tactics, they can then spot the angles and the techniques that Libra uses so effectively. Libra can see the Scorpio’s exterior and hope it has grasped this complicated soul. The Scorpio can’t be figured out. Their expressions vary from A to B. But oh, what is going on inside! It is because there is so much going on inside, that they face the world without much expression. It is their insurance that the world of inner turbulence inside them will not be displayed.

The Scorpion has limitless confidence. They are all about carrying off their agendas with their powerful wills. Libra can add a sense of balance to Scorpio’s array of tools. Scorpio can benefit from the Libran relationship, because of Libran friendliness and grace. Libra’s somewhat shaky interior, sometimes churning with uncertainty and internal consternation, feels very strong vibes from the Scorpio relationship. The visceral gutsy nature of Scorpio appeals to the intellect of the Scales. They feel that they can extrude from them and somehow benefit through their association. Scorpio likes the grace and ease that Libra has. Libra can be on your arm and you can just feel classier, more substantial and “with it”. Who benefits more from the relationship? It is hard to say; but easy to see that they both experience a “value add” from their togetherness.

Positive Postulate:

Regardless of the genders involved, whether mates, associates, friends or lovers, the intensity and grace combination would make a public relations person smile. Libra would be even classier than they normally are. Scorpio could be more at ease and that would affect their powerful style.

Romance Recommendation:

Scorpio’s love would not be fanciful or poetic. They would love with deep sincerity though. Libra’s artistic ways could add real voltage to the whole relationship. They would want to be respectful of each other in order to emphasize their good inner intentions and not predictably edgy defensiveness.

Conflict Quotient:

Libra love of communication would not end at the level of argument. A Libra in a fight with a Scorpio would be going into Scorpio’s wheelhouse. Not intimidated, very willing to defend itself, and always brimming over with excess power, conflict with a Scorpio would make you feel exercised.

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 would want to guard against the laziness that can sometimes plague them. However their classy understanding of the logic of love would give them viability all the time.

Keep Up The Interest Graph:

Imaginative Scorpio and inventive Libra would not see any lack of interest in this relationship. Libra should not slip into lazy self satisfaction, but Scorpio’s influence would make that unlikely.

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. 7 years would not be of any particular to interest to Scorpio. Libra can be impressed with the beauty of others, but its need for balance in this relationship, would work against infidelity.


ASTROCOMPATIBILITY POSSIBILITY RATING: 70% Positive Long Term - 70% Short Term. There is an unlikely quality to these two just capriciously meeting. It feels like it would probably be arranged by buddies or a Yentl. If it launches in the beginning, it could have an inevitability to it. What these two hold for each other could be extra special; but the hard work of self-consciousness and deliberateness would be at play.

Julia Purdy on February 12, 2019:

Although my heartthrob is a Pisces by Sun Sign, I checked into the possibility that he has Scorpio ascendant, and everything I am reading here fits. I can't believe how intuitive this essay is, right from the point you made that the two signs (Libra and Scorpio) are unlikely to meet without an intermediary - I walked in the door of my new apartment building and there he was, offering to be my "Mule" but clearly attracted to me. I was superficially attracted to him - even in his 70s he is a sexy gent - but we started visiting and as we got to know each other through amazingly deep conversations of self-revelation (on my part, anyway, drawn out by him, the sneak!) it seemed we were FATED to meet. He started out with a kind of courtship that grew into some hot sex. But the point about the Scorpio blowing hot and cold strikes home, also about the bossiness. Now I frame it as his way of showing he cares, and coming off 16 years of living alone in near celibacy I am not about to look this gift horse in the mouth! The Pisces element is obvious when he does his frequent deep dives into sleep, or maybe half-sleep when he envisions, plans, FEELS his way through each day's experiences. In some way he connects directly with my own soul. Fortunately I'm old enough (6 months older than he) to keep my feet under me, but it's uncanny how insightful he is. So while air and water can whip up a froth on the surface, air provides oxygen to support life in the water. So as a modern woman, I might become indignant at his various jibes and insinuations about my need for protection, but we're not talking politics here!

Librans are wonderful people my best friends are librans and so was my Mother, but beware they can come unhinged when things dont suit their peace and harmaony loving nature, I am a Pisces and love all people, only wish for all the signs to get along, I am an Aries moon with Scropio rising, so I am a bit more of a A personality, Libra womwn are a dream to al lthose they care for, Libra men nee a srtong hand to guide them, for they are insecure by nature and do not really understand the conflicts that are part of daily life, They need a strong partner to advise them....Me I am good, and only wish to leave this world just a bit better than it was when I came choice, Those born under the sign Pisces are the oldest souls of the Zodiac, WE create the beauty that Librans live fort.Unfortunately we are emphatic and sensitve to the pain and turmoild of all that is mankind, Life is a beautiful gift and it is sad that people abuse it and the earth and paradise that god freely gave us.....enough said...want the balance create the balance allow nothing or no one to stop you...Dream on

Carole Valpone on October 11, 2017:

I am a Libra and my son is a Scorpio and we have a very close, intense, and total trust and communication in our relationship. We are both very much intuitive; therefore, reading each others thoughts and feelings and reach out to one another when we feel that one of us is in need. It is a very unique relationship. I would not change it for the world.

scorp is fine with combat, even friendly fighting. Libra hates fighting, even the appearance of it. Libra must give in for peace.

MR S HLONGWANE on April 11, 2017:

Dani Alicia from Myrtle Beach, SC on November 15, 2016:

So insightful. My scorpio is giving me such mixed signals that it's making me feel like I should have myself committed but this article gives me a little bit of hope.

winifred on November 23, 2010:
