Of all the Zodiac signs, Libra is happiest when in a relationship. Libra’s ruling planet is Venus, the planet of love and romance. Then there is Libra’s symbol – the Scales. Libra needs a partner in order to feel balanced. Without one they feel ever so slightly off-kilter.
What Libra needs is someone that matches and compliments them. Before I discuss the best match for Libra, let’s get the lowdown on this interesting character.
Libra is a Cardinal Air sign, represented by the Scales and ruled by the planet Venus. Librans strive for symmetry and balance, both in their homes, work, and personal lives. They like everything to be perfect, although they are not as obsessed as our Virgo friends.
Libras are attracted to beauty and the finer things in life. They have a natural eye for the aesthetic. They instinctively know what looks good and what jars. They make excellent interior designers, image consultants, and stylists because of this.
Libra is a sentimental but practical soul. They will weigh up the pros and cons of a potential partner using logic and emotion to balance their decision. Libra is possessed with an innate sense of fairness and justice.
However, Libra can become infatuated with beauty and looks. They can have a tendency to overvalue these qualities. They fall in love with what they can see, not with what’s underneath. For Libra, image is important as it is representative of who they are.
So whether it is a designer handbag, a luxurious home, or an attractive partner, Libra likes to be surrounded by the “aesthetically pleasing”.
So what are the best matches for Libra?
First of all, let’s rule out some possible matches for Libra. Air signs are thinkers, communicators, they are flexible, open-minded, and adaptable. Therefore, earth signs, such as Capricorn, Taurus, and Virgo might be a little too down-to-earth, pragmatic, or traditional for Libra.
On the other hand, the water signs of Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces are a little too emotional, needy, and inward-looking for Libra.
As for Libras dating, we should look at fellow air signs and fire signs.

This fire sign can forge an emotional connection with Libra that no other star sign can. The Archer shares the same humanitarian causes and ideals as his Libran lover. This is what probably draws them to each other in the first instance.
This couple is naturally affectionate and loving. In fact, Libra finds it easy to open up to Sagittarius as this sign can be trusted. And the great thing is, once Sagittarius is committed, he is committed for life so, Libra can relax.
Despite being a fire sign, Sagittarius is not prone to fiery melodramatic displays of emotion. This sign is as calm and collected as Libra. Sagittarius and Libra share the same values, can communicate effectively, are caring towards each other, and have a high level of trust.
Libra and Gemini just get along. These kindred air signs will fascinate and delight each other. They will be able to connect with a meeting of minds, bouncing around ideas, and debating topics. The good thing about this couple is that if they do argue they won’t be long and drawn out. These air signs will quickly talk through their differences.
They will already have lots of things in common, including a love of travel and active social life. Gemini loves to be the center of attention while Libra is the ultimate host with the most.
This pair complement one another with the dual aspects of their personality. Libra understands the opposite faces of Gemini whereas Gemini appreciates Libra’s need for equilibrium.
It might take a long time for Libra and Aquarius to connect, but when they do fireworks will certainly happen. Libra may find it quite difficult to talk to Aquarius at the beginning. It takes Librans a while to open up their hearts in general. However, Aquarius is one of the most trustworthy star signs, and also brutally honest. So if anyone can earn Libra’s trust, it is Aquarius.
Let’s hope these two air signs do get together because sexually they are extremely compatible. Typically, Aquarius can be quite detached and aloof when it comes to the physical aspects of love. But Libra can bring out this intimate side in Aquarians.
There is a high level of mutual admiration and respect for this couple. So when they do have disagreements they are quickly and easily solved.
Another way this couple complements each other is that Aquarians can often have problems concentrating on one idea. Libra’s instinctive sense of focus and balance helps Aquarius.
The two signs of Libra and Leo make an attractive couple. Leos love luxury, splurging out on the finer things in life and generally surrounding themselves with beauty. For Libra, this is heaven they never imagined existed. Libra is not particularly extravagant but will spend money on objects of desire that showcase their lifestyle.
Leos are also highly social creatures that love to be seen and heard. Again, Libra loves to host and show off her wonderful home. Having a partner that enjoys social functions as much as she is the icing on the cake.
Leo is the king of his castle that wants to adorn his queen with the riches she deserves. But make no mistake, this is no shallow couple concerned with their own wealth. Just because they can appreciate the good things in life doesn’t mean they are not deeply passionate about those who are without.
Apart from Libra dating another Libra, my final best match is Aries, but there will need to be some compromises between Libra and Aries for this relationship to work. Aries is a natural leader. It is the first sign of the Zodiac and thinks it knows it all. Libra is the seventh sign and knows things are not black and white.
If headstrong Aries can listen to Libra’s reasoned views they have the opportunity to form a powerful combination. Libra is a team player whereas Aries prefers to lead alone and from the front. However, Libra is a problem-solver and can make Aries dreams really happen. He’d be wise to listen to her.
As for intimacy, Libra can teach her red-blooded Aries male the subtleties of love-making. On the other hand, Aries can show his Libran lover exactly what the dizzy heights of true passion feel like.
The above star signs are considered to have the highest compatibility with Libra. So what about the worst matches? Who does Libra not get along with?
Generally, the signs that are least compatible with Libra are the water and earth signs. So when it comes to dating Libra there are certain Zodiac signs that are not a good match.
Libra and Pisces are complete opposites. Pisces is sensitive, intuitive, and empathic. Acutely attuned to the moods and feelings of others, Pisces uses the senses to understand the world. Libra, however, is pragmatic and uses logic, statistics, and facts to get to the truth.
Another water sign, Cancer is not as emotional as Pisces but does like to feel secure and settled. Libra is a sociable creature that doesn’t value the old slippers and pipe routine.
Traditional, stoic, hardworking Capricorn might appear to be compatible with Libra but this earth sign is just too focused on ambition for Libra. Whilst both Libra and this earth sign are both career-minded individuals, Libra does like to play hard too.
Libra and Scorpio may well be attracted in the first instant, but as all Scorpions know, looks can be deceptive. Scorpios are mysterious, intense, and passionate. Libra is balanced, calm, and pragmatic. Libra is big on justice and fairness whereas Scorpio can wait years to exact revenge.
Gemini and Libra compatibility is second to none. These two signs are like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. They love to chatter and exchange ideas. They both love socializing and travel and don’t like to be tied down. Libra and Leo are two people that are just drawn together. Finally, Libra and Aquarius communicate and connect with a deep level of trust.
Of all the Zodiac signs Libra and Gemini make an amazing match. They have tons of things in common, this is a real meeting of minds where two people click. Another good match is Libra and Aries. Libra compatibility doesn't stop there. Sagittarius can open up Libra emotionally and Leo delights with extravagance and beauty.
Libra has a few compatible signs when it comes to dating. Gemini is considered to be a very good match, as are Leo, Aquarius, and Sagittarius. Gemini is a fellow air sign and when these two people meet they instantly understand each other. Sagittarius appeals to Libra’s compassionate side, and Aquarius builds trust and loyalty.
Don’t expect sparks to fly with Libra and Taurus or Libra and Capricorn. These earthy signs are too grounded and considered boring by Libra’s standards. Libra and Scorpio will clash where emotions are concerned and Pisces and Cancer are simply too needy.
Cancer is a real homebody and likes to be settled into a relationship and routine. While Libras do like to furnish a home with beautiful things, they also like to get out and escape once in a while. Libra and Taurus may clash as the latter tends to be headstrong for this balanced sign. Capricorn is way too staid for the social butterfly that is Libra.
Of course, as with any star sign match, we also have to examine other aspects of their Zodiac before we can make assumptions about compatibility. So it is important to remember that I am only talking about the basic character traits here. We are all individuals with unique personalities.
