Libra is a sign that is constantly on the prowl for a soulmate and quickly falls head over heels once the ever-intense Scorpio sets his eyes on her. Sadly, falling in love is the easy part as this match is bound to discover once the fog of lust has disappeared. There are real conflicts here in both values and traits which makes this relationship a serious challenge. Libra depends on a delicate but necessary balance in her life and relationships, but can she find that with a Scorpio man? The answer is not so simply cut and dry and both signs will need to roll up their sleeves if anything long term is desired in friendships or intimate relationships. With hard work and careful navigation of potential problem areas for your partner, this pairing can succeed, but you must avoid settling for a love-hate relationship.

Basic Compatibility

Scorpio men are wild and mysterious, kicking all caution to the curbside. It is hard for any woman to resist someone so brave and passionate about everything that he does. Of course, there are natural downsides to possessing these traits that can be frustrating for those who come in contact. This intense nature allows no middle ground for a Scorpio, either you are truly loved or bitterly hated for them. Even if these periods of discord and hate last but an hour, they will sting with as much fury as if you were lifetime foes. The Libra woman is a bastion of peace, harmony, and avoiding any and all conflict. While this may keep her well out of the crosshairs of a Scorpio for the most part, one slip up could leave her devastatingly hurt. As her sign is one known for its reluctance to forgive, she should tread carefully when engaging with signs which have the potential to be volatile.

The Libra woman is all about teamwork, preferring to work with and around people in everything she does. She is quickly consumed by sadness when left alone, so it may seem like a blessing with a Scorpio man who wants to be around her nonstop. She should beware of his possessiveness, which may leave her no outlets for her outgoing personality if he becomes suspicious and jealous. On a more positive note, the Scorpio man’s intelligence makes him a perfect conversation partner for a Libra woman. He is naturally romantic and will frequently shower the love of his life with gifts and attention. He is honest to a fault, and would sooner dodge questions than ever lie. The best chance for successful compatibility is when the Scorpio man agrees to be fair, and the Libra woman agrees to speak up against any possessive, controlling behavior.

Love And Relationships

Friendship is a tough situation for the scorpion; he is a very devoted friend but finds it hard to open himself up to new friendships. He is a mishmash of reflected traits that impact his ability to make lasting bonds. For example, he holds trust very highly, and yet fails to trust most people. Again, he is secretive but loathes anyone else having secrets. The good news is anyone who makes it through the gauntlet for the treasured spot of friend for a Scorpio man can pretty much count on never losing it. Libra women are exceedingly social and friendships are always available at their leisure. Her supportive personality and the high value she gives to all her friends make her a favorite for the mistreated, or those with low self-esteem. While she prefers friends that are more like herself – quiet and kind – she doesn’t force those expectations on them. She expects the balance in her life to come from intimate relationships and not her array of varied friends.

Long-term loving relationships bring out the best parts of both signs. With Libra’s partner-seeking finally at an end, she opens herself up to a more passionate and direct nature. The possessiveness of the Scorpio man may mellow out into a protectiveness that is more endearing and knightly than oppressive. He knows and trusts you are his and wants nothing more than to spend his life in happiness with you. A fulfilling sex life is mandatory for any Scorpio, and it will be a heavily passionate and emotional experience at all times as the scorpion does not partake in emotionless sex. A Libra woman is less intense, but her passion grows exponentially in a committed relationship, and she will undoubtedly follow his lead in the bedroom. Overall, her gentle touch provides much-needed balance to the scorpion’s heavy-handed touch. With all the barriers put up at the start, if you’ve made it this far with a Scorpio man you can expect relatively smooth sailing besides the occasional burst of moodiness.

Working Together

The Scorpio man is a born leader who seeks to inspire his underlings as opposed to taking the role of disciplinarian. Teamwork is not his strong point, and he performs best when set to individual tasks. He has a tendency to be easily distracted and can quickly be sucked into drama and competitiveness if it provokes their interest. The Libra woman is the opposite, preferring to remain passive and loves working in a team. She is a fair and just leader if she is forced to be, but rarely is particularly ambitious for the role. She helps all in need as long as they put forth effort into their work, she will not be manipulated into working for two so that the other can be lazy. In a Scorpio and Libra team, there are no major problems unless the scorpion’s mood ultimately leads to mistreatment of her.

A match between a Scorpio man and Libra woman has all the dangers you’d expect, with all the rewards for perseverance through the trials. They each possess flaws but are seldom too stubborn to change. With both signs possessing an intense thirst for true partnership, it is easy for them to compromise and work together in order for their love to work out. They are walking proof that intensity can be balanced and guided with a tender hand, and not brute force and suppression. If this journey seems to be the one for you, do not give up as it is worth the struggle.
