There are numerous types of relationships to explore when considering compatibility between two signs. We grow up in a parent/child dynamic. Outside our family we form friendships with other children and eventually other adults. We look for and find love. And, we go to work and have careers, interacting with employers and co-workers.
Each sign-to-sign interaction guides our behavior in every relationship. Read through this section to find out how each of the above dynamics works astrologically so you can experience the optimal way to communicate and get along with your sign and all the other signs.
The Aries-and-Libra interaction is important for both since these signs oppose one another. As the “I am” sign of the Zodiac, Aries is independent, face-paced, and likes to take risks. Libra is the “I relate” sign of the Zodiac, and is analytical, connecting, and fair. A long-term relationship (outside parent/child) can happen and should happen, so both signs can reach their full potential. Libra is a cardinal sign, that leads by partnering, but Aries leads individually, so these two signs can struggle if one or both are immature.
Aries Parent/Libra Child
The Aries parent and Libra child will work to find equilibrium, which is certainly possible. Libra, as a type, wants to know how to relate successfully with each person he or she meets. Thus, the Libra child will quickly figure out the rhythms of his or her Aries parent and work to make interactions as positive as possible. And the Aries parent, experiencing the successful interaction, will be more inclined to engage with or accept his or her child.
Libra Parent/Aries Child
The Libra parent and Aries child can work in the same way as the Aries parent and Libra child. The Libra parent will learn and teach the Aries child when it is best to be individualistic and when it is necessary, and how best, to relate to others. The child will teach the parent to remember that, sometimes, it is necessary and best to “go it alone”. In both parent/child dynamics, the Libra will lead regarding relating and the Aries will lead regarding independence.
Aries Friend/Libra Friend
Aries and Libra friends are very important to each other because of the balance they should bring to each other. Aries can cause trouble for itself by trying to do everything on its own and Libra can cause trouble for itself by needing input from others constantly. A Libra friend can help Aries relate better and an Aries friend can help Libra avoid being a doormat for everyone else.
Aries Lover/Libra Lover
This romance, love, sex combination is more challenging than all the other relationship types. Aries is a “let’s rip off our clothes and have sex here in the bathroom” and Libra is “I will give you what you want so long as you give me what I want in return”. Once Libra figures out what Aries wants and how they should ask for their wants/needs in front of the Aries wants/needs; otherwise, they may end up deprived and disappointed while the Aries is getting continually satisfied.
Aries Employer/Libra Employee
The Aries employer and the Libra employee combination is valuable for a company. As the sign that prefers to relate, the Libra employee will make sure his or her relationship is working with the Aries employer. They can also help other employees find the right balance with an Aries boss. Equally important is the fact that Libra is a cardinal sign, so they will not be cowed by Aries, which Aries will respect, even if challenged.
Libra Employer/Aries Employee
If the employer is a Libra and the employee is Aries, this combination works in similar ways to the Aries employer/Libra employee dynamic. Libra wants things done so that everyone is pleased with the process and results. They want harmony in and completion of tasks. As a result, they may be the best managers for any sign, and especially Aries, who prefers to “go it alone”. If there is a team with an Aries on it, the Libra boss will find a way to make the team succeed for the Aries and non-Aries employees alike.
Aries Co-worker/Libra Co-worker
This combination is good. If there must be some teamwork or partnering, making sure a Libra is on the team with an Aries or the Libra is the partner with Aries, is probably best. Since the signs oppose, and thus try to balance one another, Libra is the sign least likely to frustrate Aries and Aries is the sign most likely to challenge Libra in a fun and exciting way.
