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

First dates have frisson because two air signs have a natural rapport. Any frictions likely have to do with other energies in the birth chart.

With compatible Suns, these lovers hover at times, as if observers in the relationship. They can quickly overcome disagreements, but they can feel detached, as if neither wants to go beyond the "idea" of the relationship. 

Trappings of Romance

One tip for Aquarius: Don't be stingy with romance. Libra loves the rituals of courting, like bringing or picking flowers, or an unexpected text.

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

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


Aquarius has much to offer Libra, too. An Aquarian's fixed quality means sharing of sustained mental focus. For Libra, a sign known to lose steam in implementing ideas, this is good medicine. Aquarius inspires Libra's staying power. Between them, they have what it takes to bring brilliant ideas to fruition.

Libra and Aquarius make great collaborators: designers, parents, educators, writers, business partners, whatever. Often there's a sense of mission and a cause that benefits from their passionate activism.

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

Social Animals

They're both social animals, which colors how they spend vacations and weekends. But Libra likes to be wooed, even in a committed relationship, and will want time alone with Aquarius.

If Libra is indecisive, Aquarius can be fixed in thinking. If Libra seems too rehearsed in relating, that's a turn-off for the spontaneous Waterbearer. Libra won't get far with people pleasing, but in the hands of fair-minded Aquarius, Libra senses the freedom to be truthful, even edgy.

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