Balance is the keyword with a Libra – Scorpio combination. The Scales is lighthearted and an idealist while the Scorpion is intense and passionate. Both Scorpio and Libra are great in a crowd and are well able to hold their own under pressure. With one another, both partners find their deeper needs amply fulfilled.
Everyone’s best friend, the Scales is all about seeing every side of a situation. This talent makes Libra welcome everywhere it goes and peace reigns in its wake. The Scales is so adept at becoming just what others need, it seldom shows its true self, even among its own loved ones. While one may get the impression that Libra is rather shallow, this really isn’t the case. The Scales is just so naturally diplomatic that its own thoughts and feelings about matters don’t seem that important.
The Scales loves pretty things and will go to great lengths to beautify itself and its surroundings. This can make Libra quite vain and its interest in personal appearance may grow almost to an obsession. Libra is prone to eating disorders and compulsive exercise to match its real appearance with what it perceives to be required by social expectations.
One of the most commanding Signs in the Zodiac, the passion of the Scorpion can be borne by only a few. Yet the person who can accept its emotional excesses is rewarded with an adoring, loyal partner that will build its world around them. While Scorpio often doesn’t commit until the latter part of its life, once the Scorpion settles on a partner it is determined to make it a match for a lifetime. With its persistence and obsessive focus, it’s very challenging to leave a relationship with Scorpio who can turn from loving to vengeful when thwarted.
The Scorpion has a rather morbid nature and is attracted to the darker qualities of human nature. There is little that is light and easy about Scorpio always driven as it is by the depth of emotion it embodies. The Scorpion is a creature of extremes and nothing is simple or straightforward in its world. Scorpio embodies an enormous amount of energy that it can focus on anything it chooses to, which makes it excellent at climbing the corporate ladder.
With such different personalities, it might seem that Libra and Scorpio would have to work very hard to build a healthy relationship. This, however, is not the case, a fact that is due in large part to the charm and flexibility of the Scales. Libra has a lot of talent in moderating strong emotions. Its practice at diplomacy and soothing ruffled feelings is well rewarded in its relationship with the Scorpion. The Scales is capable of pulling Scorpio out of its darkness into the light so deftly that the Scorpion often doesn’t even realize that Libra is at work.
Scorpio has a lot to offer Libra as well. The Scorpion is a born leader and will happily take charge and make decisions for the pair. However, Scorpio will give the Scales the courtesy of expressing its opinion which not only makes Libra feel important, but often yields innovative ideas and solutions as well. The Scales is intelligent and full of great ideas, but often overthinks and finds the making the final choice very difficult. When the Scorpion takes on the role of final decisionmaker, Libra’s level of anxiety drops, and it can relax and just enjoy the fruits of its ideas.
The Scales and the Scorpion are very happy at home together. Libra will design and decorate a lovely retreat for the pair, and they will happily spend time enjoying one another’s company or entertaining friends. Scorpio finds Libra’s cheery presence helps to lighten its moods while the Scorpion provides the Scales with encouragement to explore its own true feelings. In this way, each member of the pair strengthens the other. Scorpio learns to balance its inner world while Libra learns to be more genuine with others.
When there is a major gulf in the strength of personalities in a couple, there is always the danger that one person will walk all over the other. The Libra and Scorpio pairing is not immune to this potential problem. The real danger here stems from the diplomatic skills that Libra has perfected to such a high level. Hiding its true feelings is so reflexive for the Scales that Libra might not even be aware of it. While Scorpio is quite good at reading others, not even the strategic Scorpion will be able to break through Libra’s diplomatic shell. This makes it very difficult for real communication to take place.
Both Scorpio and Libra have a strong need to control their environments although their reasons for this are different. Libra uses control to soothe its underlying anxiety while control is simply a fundamental part of the Scorpion’s obsessive makeup. Libra generally won’t mind Scorpio’s firm guidance, since it is a follower by nature. The Scorpion, who is definitely a leader, is less likely to be amenable to any attempt by the Scales at control. While this may cause some dissention between the two, it is unlikely to be severe or long lasting as the Scales doesn’t have the strength to force its wishes on such a powerful mate.
The Libra – Scorpio union is a surprise to many, but one that works all the same. This pair brings out the best in one another and builds a very satisfactory life together. The Scorpion helps the Scales make decisions while still taking Libra’s thoughts and feelings into consideration. Libra has the admirable ability to charm the Scorpio out of a dark mood. Together the partners create a beautiful, happy home where each can relax and still grow as a person. As long as Libra isn’t so subtle that its mate can’t determine its true wishes and doesn’t attempt to overtly control its Scorpio mate, this couple will have love and passion all their lives.
