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 Libra-and-Aquarius relationship is a positive and self-reinforcing one since these signs share the same element, air. Libra is the “I relate” sign of the Zodiac, and is analytical, connecting, and fair. Aquarius is the “I revolutionize” sign of the Zodiac and is social, idealistic, and individualistic. A long-term relationship (outside parent/child) is very likely. Libra can support Aquarius in expressing his or her unique talent for the community and Aquarius can help Libra find where they belong, and their service will be most appreciated.
Libra Parent/Aquarius Child
The Libra parent and Aquarius child can work well together. Aquarius, as a type, is usually quirky or unique is some way, focused on what is new and innovative. Libra, as a type, enjoys relating, analyzing, and negotiating. The Aquarius child often appears to be from a “different world” regardless of who is the parent (except maybe another Aquarius), but the difference can be something the Libra parent embraces because they enjoy being innovative as the way to connect to their child.
Aquarius Parent/Libra Child
The Aquarius parent and Libra child can be equally pleasant, with very little drama and plenty of mutual respect. There will be rules with the Aquarius parent, like with any fixed sign, but they will probably be clear enough that the Libra child will easily understand them. Libra is the cardinal air sign, and like all air signs, prefers to communicate at a high level in all relationships. These two energies easily work with one another, so the Aquarian parent can help the Libra child learn to socialize. And the Libra child’s desire to relate and build friendships will connect with the Aquarian desire to make life better for everyone.
Libra Friend/Aquarius Friend
Libra and Aquarius friends can enjoy a “save the world” excitement, mainly driven by the idealistic Aquarius, and easily supported by the social Libra. The Aquarius enjoys being part of the group but does not need or want to lead, just participates. Aquarians can promote many causes without seeing them through. Libra will want to lead the group but do so by building relationships that reveal and support others’ strengths. The Libra friend can quickly discern the strength of the Aquarius and will do all in his or her power to be supportive.
Libra Lover/Aquarius Lover
This romance, love, sex combination is intellectual, open-minded, and playful. All fixed signs can have lasting relationships, even though Aquarius will be the most unusual of the bunch. And Libra is the cardinal sign that prefers to initiate through relating. The romance may not be the most emotional or even physical, but it might be the most experimental. Aquarius can be as “deviant” as Scorpio, but with a different motivation, less so because of emotional intensity, and more so because of “scientific” curiosity. It is the scientific experiment of romance and sex that the Libra can connect with, as a fellow intellectual who gets a charge of sexual energy through the mind more so than the heart or body.
Libra Employer/Aquarius Employee
The Libra employer and the Aquarius employee match is one of the more fast-paced and stimulating combinations, mainly because of the mental acuity of both signs. Libra wants to see the company run harmoniously and perform well socially and financially. Aquarius loves to innovate and find unique ways to solve problems or do his or her work. The Aquarius can enjoy working for a Libra boss if the Libra employer has rules or parts of the process allowing for innovation to be built into the overall vision of success for the company.
Aquarius Employer/Libra Employee
If the employer is an Aquarius and the employee is Libra, this combination works great too. Aquarius likes to see a team thrive through the efforts of its individuals. Libra will enjoy working on the team and applying the Aquarius vision for work output, helping to build relationships with co-workers and customers. Aquarius leaders understand the need for each sign to do what it does best and behave how it prefers to behave. They should be able to see how the Libra employee can strengthen and maintain the health of social interactions to get great results in the work environment.
Libra Co-worker/Aquarius Co-worker
This combination works much in the same way as a friendship, with easy flow, plenty of communication, and a desire to see the work community thrive and support one another. These two signs can make coming to work a joy and be the members of the organization that keep morale high. They can also spot problems with the social lives of their fellow workers and their boss and make themselves available to help where there are problems.
