All About Aries

Aries is known for being fiery, independent, and courageous. Ruled by the planet Mars and represented by the Ram, Aries are natural-born leaders with a knack for starting things (but not always finishing them). They also have a strong sense of justice and fairness. When it comes to their romantic life, they are loyal lovers who will never let the flame in their relationship die out. However, when an Aries does find that special someone that makes their heart skip a beat, that person better be prepared for true love. Those born under the fire sign Aries are very passionate and intense people, so it’s best not to break their hearts or expect an easygoing relationship. But, those looking for a passionate partner to go on adventures and laugh with together need look no further than an Aries. Although an Aries partner may tend to get over-excited or angry easily and can’t always control themselves, they make up for it by loving deeply. Their partners will need to accept them as is, if they want any chance at a long-term romance with this fire sign. Aries’ best matches tend to be Gemini, Leo, and Sagittarius; but things may be tough with a Taurus, Cancer, or Capricorn.

All About Libra

Harmony, balance, and justice are all things associated with Venus-ruled Libra. They seek balance above all else, whether it be in something as simple as a meal or as complicated as a relationship. They are the perfect partner for a Mars-ruled Aries because they bring out the best in them. They have a way of calming Aries’ fiery passion — Libras are represented by the Scales, after all — while still managing to motivate them to do what they do best. If you like someone who’s fun but also sensitive to your needs at the same time, look no further than Libra. Libra’s best matches tend to be Gemini, Aquarius, or Libra; but things may be tricky with Pisces or Taurus.

Why Libra and Aries Make a Special Love Match

As for any relationship, there are things that you both need to work on or keep in mind. While Aries and Libra have a lot of great qualities as individuals, they have some personality traits that are polar opposites — and might end up being deal-breakers. It’s important not to let these differences define your relationship; instead of arguing about them or trying to change your partner, just remember that you both have different needs that don’t always match up perfectly. To make it work, compromise is absolutely essential. Of course, it’s also wise to remember that zodiac compatibility is not the end-all, be-all of relationships. But in many ways, Libra is in fact the perfect partner for an Aries woman or man in terms of love and friendship compatibility.

Life of the Party

Libra and Aries are both social cardinal signs, making it easy for them to talk to each other comfortably. They have similar interests, so an Aries-Libra couple can always find something to do together. (Plus, they both have a lot of patience with one another, which is essential when you’re trying to maintain a long-term partnership.) They also understand that the other person needs time alone every now and then. When these two get along, there’s really nothing that can stop them.

One big thing these two signs have in common is a love for events, parties, holidays, and other community gatherings: They are both chatterboxes who love spending time with friends and family. It’s not uncommon, therefore, for them both to spend an entire day on Saturday or Sunday going from event to event; that way, they can share it with the person they love most. There may come a point when Libra becomes bored of just following Aries around on their adventures — however, because Libras want more than anything to explore new things and meet new people themselves, it doesn’t take long before they decide to try something fun on their own. If they’re lucky, they’ll find a group of like-minded individuals to experience life with. If not, then it’s up to them to figure out how to go along with Aries’ master plan. 

Opposites Attract

Libra is a sign of peace and tranquility, ruled by Venus (the planet of love and beauty), while Aries is a sign of energy and drive, ruled by Mars (the planet of war and desire). In this way, they are opposites that attract each other intensely. They both want to be together all the time but also enjoy their own space to do as they please. They will always cherish the other person’s company while hoping to maintain their own independence. This makes for a very balanced relationship, where both people are respected equally.

Aries and Libra are extroverted signs, but they express their extroversion in different ways. Aries is outgoing, while Libra is more reserved. Still, they can be honest with one another without hurting each other’s feelings. They also enjoy exploring new things together, never feeling that they’re stuck with one another. They can maintain their individuality as well as share their love for life, as long as communication stays strong and consistent. Libra provides calmness and serenity to help keep Aries grounded when they become too passionate; and Aries has the confidence to make decisions that Libra lacks. With Aries’ love of adventure and Libra’s penchant for glamour, these two will constantly be busy exploring together. When it comes down to it, this compatibility just makes sense.

Give and Take

An Aries person is a natural-born leader who likes to be in charge and at the top of the hierarchy — remember, they are the first sign of the zodiac. However, this tendency to dominate can be difficult for them to handle when it comes to their love life — but luckily, cooperative Libras are likely going to be happy with being in a supportive position. Even better than that, Libras are partner-oriented and gracious enough to take care of all the pesky details that’ll help Aries get ahead in life, so they don’t have to worry about anything but themselves. With each other’s best interests at heart, this match is one that you won’t want to pass up.

Final Thoughts

If you have the kind of love and friendship compatibility that Libra and Aries do, it’s hard to see where you could go wrong. Not only are both signs compatible in love, they are also easy, breezy friends. Both of you bring out the best in one another, so make sure to keep this relationship alive.
