Libra and Scorpio are respectively the seventh and eighth signs of the zodiac calendar. However despite the proximity in position, the signs barely share any similarity as far as personal traits and priorities are concerned. Chances of a compatible Libra-Scorpio match are thus quite slim unless both consciously make an effort to use their individual traits to complement each other in a relationship.
Libra and Scorpio seem to be made out of entirely separate materials and herein lies the crux of their potential incompatibility. As an air sign, Libra is somewhat emotionally detached; even when they are in love, it is more of a kind of charming romance they are interested in rather than deep emotional connection. The Scorpio on the other hand has water as its ruling element and this makes the sign highly attuned to waves of emotion. While the Scorpio does not wear its heart on its sleeve like other water signs such as the Cancer or Pisces, it nevertheless feels everything intensely. Love for them is an all or nothing experience and there can be no half-measures in matters of the heart. This clashes with the airy romance of the Libra so that after a while, both partners in this match might find themselves answering to different compulsions in love.

Then again the Scorpio makes for an extremely possessive partner. Their intense natures compel the Scorpion to surrender body and soul to a partner but at the same time they expect wholehearted involvement from the other side. The Libra in turn is not comfortable with such an overwhelming sense of belonging. Thus to Scorpio, it might seem like their Libra partner is avoiding commitment while in reality the Libra likes to have everything in proportion and would most probably shy away from any kind of emotional excess.
The key to any possible success for the Libra-Scorpio compatibility lies in each using their individual traits to support the other in the relationship. If the Libra can attempt a deeper emotional connection while the Scorpio makes greater allowances for the formers’ fastidious natures, then the couple might be able to find the right balance in their emotional lives. Also the relationship will benefit from the social charm of the Libra as well as the psychological power of the Scorpio, making their love a rounded experience and giving it both beauty as well as strength.
Libra Man and Scorpio Woman
The two are likely to come together in a relationship drawn by the sheer force of opposites. The male Libra will be intrigued by the promise of secret depths in the female Scorpio while the latter will be charmed by the pleasant manners and the sparkling conversation of the former. And when they do make love, the experience is likely to leave them breathless, primarily because of the burning intensity of the Scorpio’s passion. At the same time, the Libra will introduce a sense of balance with his romantic moves and the warmth of his affection.
The problems between this couple will probably start over conflicting views on how to spend an evening together. The Libra man will want to hang out with mutual friends or even go to the theater with a like-minded couple. The Scorpio woman on the other hand might have more intimate plans in mind. She may want to have a go at playing strip poker with her partner or a competitive game of tennis. Even though a Scorpio does not shun company as much as a Taurus or a Virgo, still they are wary of too much social mingling and any way they prefer to keep their own counsel. This deep secretive personality of the Scorpio woman while appearing initially attractive might clash with the open, sociable nature of the Libra man till the two find they are fighting more and loving less.
Then again too much unpleasantness in a relationship is enough to put off the male Libra. This sign cannot tolerate stress and conflict which is why the sharp, brutally honest tongue of his Scorpio partner might hurt him easily. The Libra on the other hand is known for their sense of diplomacy and even when they have to convey an unhappy truth, they do so with finesse and compassion.
Finally the Libra man’s indecisive nature might exasperate his Scorpio partner who is extremely confident of her own capabilities and life goals. She will be unable to understand his tendency to veer between extremes before arriving at a decision. The female Scorpio might assume this kind of vacillating as a mark of an immature personality rather than see it as a tendency to consider a situation from all aspects before taking a call.
Libra Woman and Scorpio Man
In this pairing, the male Scorpio is likely to be swept away by the charming graces of the Libra woman and her easy sociability which makes her so popular. She in turn will be attracted to the Scorpion’s strong, self-assured personality and marvel at his immense courage and mental strength.
Over time however the couple will probably face all the obstacles that challenge the male Libra-female Scorpio match. However an added complexity here might be created by the Scorpio’s intensely jealous nature. Confronted with his partner’s huge popularity among other men and her tendency to respond good-humoredly to flirtatious overtures from her male friends, the Scorpio will be goaded to depths of jealousy. This is because he feels every emotion with acute intensity and the prospect that he is not the only one for her is enough to drive him mad with rage.
In the end what can save this relationship from breaking apart is an effort on both sides to be more adjusting. This in fact is quite easy for the Libra which is a casual, easy-going sign and is capable of getting along with a wide variety of personalities, including a complex one such as the Scorpio’s. The Scorpio on the other hand possesses a deeply intuitive nature which can see right through appearances into the heart of a person. Thus the Libra’s romantic and essentially loyal nature will be evident to their Scorpio partner who in turn will respond with the depths of their passion and commitment.
