Air sign Libra and water sign Scorpio can form a powerful initial bond spurred on by the obvious differences between these two signs.
Unpredictable Scorpio is fascinating to Libra who loves meeting unusual people, and initially, a Libra woman will probably find Scorpio’s heavy-handed possessiveness both flattering and delightful.
Read carefully and find out how compatible are Scorpio man and Libra woman, and how your planets work together.
Scorpio Man and Libra Woman Chemistry
Libra’s affectionate needs are met by Scorpio’s raw and lusty physical demands but a sensitive and demanding Scorpio man will be challenged to the hilt by Libra’s need to socialize and flirt at every opportunity.
Where Scorpio takes love and commitment very seriously, Libra uses partnerships to enhance her social image. Also, her habit of sharing things that Scorpio deems highly private will drive a wedge between these lovers.
Libra takes love and sex as a light, semi-permanent state and her airy approach will frustrate and sadden Scorpio who seeks an all-consuming, completely committed affair of the heart.
The longevity of this combination is likely to be cut short by the fact that Scorpio is an emotional deep end while Libra is a shallow paddling pool in comparison.
This combination can, on the surface, be a passionate and loving relationship, but both parties will have to work hard to overcome their hard-wired way of thinking and socializing for it to last beyond a lusty and short-lived encounter.
The Libra Woman
Ruled by Venus, the goddess of love and beauty, Libra is less comfortable with love and more obsessed with beauty and values of fairness and some complicated higher principles of idealized love.
All of Libra’s ideas about human connection are bound by the rules of fairness and friendship, and when confronted by passionate love, airy Libra can get a bit confused.
A Scorpio man can challenge everything a Libra woman thinks she knows about love and passion. When confronted by a steamy and explosive union between two people that Scorpio brings to the love table, you will probably feel completely overwhelmed.
You tend to move on when reality doesn’t live up to your mind’s eye view of the world, and you need to weather some storms if you want to be with a Scorpio man.
The Scorpio Man
Take the normal human needs for affection, intimacy, and love and amplify them a thousand times, and you have some idea of the strong need for all-consuming love experienced by a Scorpio man.
This drive often translates into what appears to be cold ambition in a ruthless sexual predator, but don’t fall for the bravado, as a Scorpio man is a simpler creature than he appears.
This is one man who will not bend over backward to please a woman he wants or loves, and he is never very easy to live with or love, but if you can deal with his insecurities and welcome his passion, the rewards are great.
Hurt him – his fragile ego takes offense very easily – and he responds like a wounded animal, lashing out viciously at those who try to show him, love.
What Works Between a Scorpio Man and Libra Woman
You two are so different that you are thoroughly charmed by one another. A Libra woman finds jealousy flattering, while a Scorpio man is fascinated by Libra’s light and airy charms. The sexual chemistry between you is likely to be smoldering hot and all-consuming.
Libra introduces Scorpio to a detached perspective on relationships and Scorpio teaches Libra the value of honest passion and emotional authenticity. A Scorpio man can inject some direction into Libra’s scattered sense of purpose.
She, in turn, can remind him of the need for balance and gentleness when his emotions get the better of him.
What to Watch For
Scorpio is likely to become infuriated by Libra’s ability to breeze through life with joyful detachment. The way that Libra treats everyone the same way will severely challenge Scorpio’s suspicious mind.
Libra, in turn, will find Scorpio’s dark and powerful emotions bewildering, and at times, rather scary and intimidating.
A Scorpio man will have to challenge his greatest fears (of being abandoned, betrayed or not taken seriously) to find happiness in the arms of a Libra female.
In turn, a Libra woman’s detached approach to life and closely-held principles will face a strong challenge from the searching mind and fearless emotional honesty of a Scorpio man.
This mix of air and water signs can develop into a powerful lifelong bond, but both parties will have to work very hard to maintain any semblance of peace.
If Scorpio can learn to dial down his emotional intensity and Libra can learn to deal with, rather than ignore her emotions, this couple can move beyond a short-lived affair.
Both of you want love, but Libra sees love as being adored for being free and Scorpio sees love as a merging of two individuals into one powerful force. If both of you can compromise, and give each other space, you could work very well together.
