Everything You Need to Know about a Scorpio and Libra Romance

Andrea Lawrence is a time traveler. She fights crime in the ancient times to try to reset things for a better future for the rest of us.


A Scorpio and a Libra Romance

A Scorpio and a Libra romantic pairing is strong. The two are neighbors in the zodiac, and they both bring a certain passionate side to the table that helps keep the romance alive. This is one of the better water and air sign pairings. Where Scorpio is consumed by deep moving emotions, Libra is all about harmony, balancing-acts, and good vibes.

These two will understand each other in a way that excites others. They are always trying to have fun and to spice things up. They're likely to travel together, try risky business ventures, or go to restaurants with peculiar menus.

  • Scorpio likes Libra's fair nature, her constant quest for enlightenment, and she all around amuses him with her brainiac and whimsical ways.
  • Libra is fascinated by someone so deep in feeling, so passionate about life, and their successful and driven nature. Sometimes Libra proscratinates too much, so to have someone around them that's driven can both be exciting and frightening.

Scorpio Sails, Libra Swims Like a Mermaid


Scorpio and Libra are both fall signs. Libra is the 7th House and Scorpio is the 8th House. They've observed Aries through Virgo -- those are the signs preceding them -- and now with fall in motion -- the zodiac goes a whole new direction.

Libra wants to bring balance into the Zodiac. Libra is in the middle of the cycle, and so she wants to see fairness, beauty, and charm. Libra is a beautiful time of year; it's the warmer end of fall from September 23rd to October 23rd. For the northern hemisphere, this often is the best time of year weather wise. More and more people are getting married in this timeframe!

Libra isn't partial to people but insteas wants everyone to get along. This may at times drive Scorpio crazy who requires loyalty, commitment, and togetherness. Scorpio will not take on a partner who doesn't see them as number one. Libra will have to give more time than usual to their romantic partner and less to all their social aqutiances.

Libra can be a bit of a loner at times and really stuck in her feelings, so it might actually be good for them to partner up with Scorpio who can give them guidance about their emotions that elude them. Libras are full of wit, thought, and logic, so they sometimes don't know how to properly get their emotions on track. Libras can be surprisingly emotional -- like a volcano of emotion. They want to be warm to everyone, and they feel a lot of pressure to do so. They hate when they are rude to another because they want to exude charisma. It's a sin to Libra to sour a social connection.

Scorpio is from October 23rd to November 21st. They're often described as being intense, magnetic, successful, idiosyncratic, dangerous, and passionate. They'll like a Libra because Libras are often desirable people with great charm. They also like the more light-hearted nature of a Libra. Scorpio sometimes gets too competitive with similar ego-driven signs like Aries, Taurus, Leo, and other Scorpios. Scorpio is a magical sign and can see things beyond the norm. They have a vibrant creative side to them, and prefer someone who is open-minded. It's this quest for someone who is open-minded that often lands a Scorpio into a relationship with an air sign.

Scorpio likes air signs but can be really confused by them. The Scorpio and Aquarius connection could be a whole library to itself because Scorpios are often so deeply confused by them. Scorpio and Aquarius as fixed signs can really make each other crazy because they're both stubborn and don't really understand why they're attracted to each other.

Libra and Scorpio benefit from both being fall signs. In this way they have a more similar perspective on life and a more similar energy than a Gemini + Scorpio, Aquarius + Scorpio... or a Pisces + Libra... and Cancer + Libra types of connections.

Intensity + Whimsy

Scorpio is the most intense water sign. They are a fixed sign, and they have volumes of emotion that they process. Scorpio is expressed in multiple signs in part to break down the complexity of this person who has a big range for emotions.

  • Scorpio first starts as the snake crawling on its belly, processing things as it goes along and is often unapproachable.
  • Then the Scorpio evolves to the scorpion, which is a faster moving critter but highly dangerous and ready to attack its foes... it's not really super kind to its romantic partner either.
  • Ultimately, Scorpio is on track to become the Phoenix, which is the most powerful essence in the Zodiac, but it's hard to stay in that energy. The Phoenix is sacrifial, it's a powerful healer, and one of the greatest friends a person could ever have.
  • Scorpio can't stay in the Phoenix state 24-7 without some serious growth and enlightenement. Many Scorpios never rise to this kind of self-control and virtue. It takes a talented romantic partner to be with a Scorpio as they evolve (and de-evolve) throughout life.

Scorpio at their heart is a healer. The zodiac teaches about how we as humans are intended to evole into becomming healers, but the complications it takes along the way to do so. Scorpio doesn't have a full amount of control on their emotions or the magic within them. Scorpios are unstable in a way.

It's the first sign to experience the healing ability -- then Sagittarius and Capricorn deny it for more grounded attributes -- then the healer qualities return in Aquarius and Pisces who learn to stabilize and use the giftings properly.

Scorpio is one of the three magical signs with Aquarius and Pisces. Libra is one of the last signs to live in the first order that follows the cycle of birth and family, the first real experiences we all have and understand -- and even cling to.

Libra feels a lot of push and pull because they witness the power and real savage qualities of family, birth, and first real friends. Libra gets to see all of this played out in the seasons from Aries to Virgo.

Then Libra can peer into what's ahead which takes a ride into the supernatural, the cosmos, and the beyond. The first half of the Zodiac is nowhere near even thinking about death or what could lie beyond death, but Scorpio and the later signs are all consumed by this making them more old soul types. It's the unsolved existential crisis that's honestly driving Scorpio. Libra is driven by her insight to see all the signs in the past, present, and future. Libra wants to balance all of that into one cohesive whole.

Scorpio and Libra Together for the Long Haul

A Scorpio and Libra benefit from being consecutive signs — that means they’re neighbors in the zodiac. They’ll feel some tension from Libra’s air and Scorpio’s water. Fortunately, since they’re not both fixed signs, this will help immensely. Libra is a cardinal, so they like to set the stage, get things in motion, and start new movements. Scorpio as a fixed sign is stubborn, controlling, and laser-focused. Together these two can be a powerful force to get stuff done, to create movements, and help make the world a better place.

It’s important for Libra to see how they are outside the relationship and not to just get lost in it. Scorpio needs to give space, even if they really don’t want to do that. Scorpio wants a relationship that’s like two different water sources running into each other and for their to be no separation, but this can warp things and cause people to feel uneasy, even existential. There needs to be a certain amount of room to breathe. Libra will require barriers. Some compromise here will be necessary for the sanity of the relationship.

Libra needs to step up and talk and not just bury conflicts. I know of a Scorpio and Libra couple that didn’t talk out their problems until very close to their wedding date, and they ended up canceling their wedding and breaking up when they finally approached conflict. You have to learn how to talk things out whether going to a family counselor to figure out how or allowing yourselves to go uncomfortable places and conversations.

Problems don’t go away just because you don’t talk about them. Libra is really bad about this because of their persistence on harmony — this can warp your perceptions and prevent you from being active about your life and surroundings. Your idealism causes you to refuse to be realistic. Without approaching conflict, this will also lead to procrastination, potentially at dangerous levels. Scorpio is someone who will approach conflict head-on, so it might confuse the Libra as to why their Scorpio is so forceful. This is going to be one of the hardest dynamics of the relationship to master.

Scorpio needs to invest heavily in a project with all their creativity. A Scorpio doesn’t do well to sit and do nothing with their talents. The water sign won’t sit and waste time for very long. They actively want to pursue their dreams and make a difference. They want to be useful and powerful. Libra will sacrifice power for harmony. If Scorpio can find a strong melody for Libra to blend with harmony, they’ll end up crafting something together that’s powerful.

Air and water sign relationships have great potential. They cover some of the most important bases in our lives from our emotions to our thoughts. These two will face depression and anxiety in their lives, so they’ll need to work hard to remedy these disorders.

Scorpio is prone to depression and similar issues while Libra is more prone to anxiety. Scorpio needs to work through their sadness and have great support around them and the will to go after their dreams. Libra needs help with her swirling thoughts that can be too many and too much. Scorpio can help Libra to slow down, to chill, and to not let the storm of life take control.

  • The both of you are well suited for a weighted blanket!
  • Drink lots of water and stay active.
  • Scorpio should encourage Libra to get out and exercise.
  • Libra should encourage Scorpio’s creativity.
  • If the two of you can push to earn more it’ll be easier to save.
  • Scorpios tends to find and grow money, Libras tend to be hoarders and occasional binge spenders.
  • Know your pocketbook just as much as your dreams and ambitions.
  • Scorpio must have ambition and this is tied heavily to their goals.
  • Libra must have friends and this is tied to growing knowledge and learning how to bridge and pacify social situations.
