Libra Friendship Compatibility: The Great Counselor
Learn how Libras can make the best of friends with each sign
By Tarot.com Staff
Libras make good friends because they are usually up for anything, especially group outings, and love to be around people all the time. Libra is open and honest in friendship and very loyal, so many friends rely on Libra for good advice and a listening ear. But, there's a catch (of course): Librans are easily-influenced and gullible, so if you're not careful, friends can take advantage of you without you even realizing it...
JUMP TO A SIGN:
Libra and Aries
Even though Aries is your astrological opposite, you’d never let a petty thing like that stand in the way of friendship. Actually, teaming up with a Ram appeals to your sense of equanimity. You admire this sign’s decisiveness, self-assurance, and enthusiasm. Of course, there are times when you wish Aries wouldn’t be so pushy -- doesn’t everybody need three hours to get ready to go to the movies? Consider, though, how many times your pal has been willing to accommodate your last-minute changes of heart. You have to admit that it’s nice having a friend who is willing to shift gears at a moment’s notice.
Libra and Taurus
It seems strange that you and Taurus are both ruled by the planet Venus, since you are different in so many ways. The Bull is led by their senses, while you’re guided by logic. Your Taurus friend enjoys familiar routines, while you take every opportunity to try something new. Taurus is the strong, silent type, and you’re a veritable chatterbox. Still, you’re both partial to luxury and enjoy dining at expensive restaurants, being pampered at swanky salons, and camping out at the finest hotels. You also love all forms of art, although Taurus’ tastes are probably a bit more traditional than yours. The two of you could have lots of fun traveling to glamorous cities, going to plays, and listening to music together.
Libra and Gemini
Being in the company of a Gemini is akin to drinking fine champagne for you. This friend’s effervescent personality goes straight to your head. Within minutes of greeting each other, the two of you are laughing uproariously at some silly thing that happened moments before. Pretty soon, you’re excitedly making plans to attend the big music festival that’s taking place three towns over, discussing who will drive, where you’ll stay and what you’ll eat. Of course, your conversation will be continually interrupted by Gemini’s constantly ringing cell phone. This may be one of the few bones you have to pick with this sign, who isn’t the most courteous person when it comes to phone etiquette. Still, it’s nice that The Twins have something to do while you spend 5 hours packing for your journey.
Libra and Cancer
It’s hard for you to figure out your Cancer pal, but you’ll try anyway. It seems incomprehensible to you that anyone could shift from happy to sad within seconds, but the Crab can and often does. Never fear, there are things about you that baffle the Moonchild, too. For instance, your pal can’t understand how you can blow through a paycheck within a few hours time. Despite such significant differences, you do enjoy each other’s company. For one thing, Cancer loves to wait on their friends and you love to be pampered. For another, you have a knack for saying just the right thing to boost a person’s ego and the self-conscious Crab needs plenty of encouragement.
Libra and Leo
How can you not adore glamorous Leo, who loves the good life almost as much as you do? The two of you never skimp on the things that make life worthwhile, such as food, fashion, and festivities. True, Leo can steamroll over your feelings sometimes, insisting on doing things their way, regardless of your wants and needs. Meanwhile, you can drive the Lion crazy with your fickle opinions and frequent changes of heart. Happily, the two of you have a knack for bringing out the best in each other. The two of you love all forms of art, including theater, music, dance, and painting. You’re also quite active and may have fun running, skiing, or ice skating.
Libra and Virgo
There’s much to admire in your clever Virgo pal. This sign always seems to have everything together, from their impeccable wardrobe to their well-stocked pantry. And though you can always depend on this sign to have their refrigerator stocked with your favorite brand of sparkling water, it can be a bit daunting to be friends with such a perfectionist. You’ve always been the sort of person to leave projects half-finished, flitting from one to the other in order to stave off boredom. If the Virgin can learn to respect your way of doing things, you’ll be more prone to respect their methodical ways. Fortunately, you’re both very bright and share a love of puzzles and trivia.
Libra and Libra
Everything’s always so easy and familiar with your Libran chum ... why can’t all of your friendships be this way? It’s probably because you won’t find anyone as charming, witty, and intelligent as a fellow Libra. The two of you share a love of grace and beauty and can spend hours just admiring the architecture of historic places. You’re also both practiced at the art of debate and enjoy discussing current events with each other, knowing the conversation will never get heated or emotional. The one drawback to this friendship is that you’re both more prone to talk about things than actually do them. Neither one of you likes to take decisive action ... it’s much more fun discussing the matter from every conceivable angle. Naturally, you have tons of interests in common and may enjoy graceful sports like ballet and ice skating. Playing music can be another source of pleasure for you both.
Libra and Scorpio
It’s virtually impossible not to get drawn into Scorpio’s web of intrigue. This friend is just so alluring and mysterious that you’re compelled to ask questions about their life. If you manage to tease any information out of this sign (and you probably can, considering your charm), you could be shocked. That’s because Scorpio intuits your sense of propriety and likes to shake its very foundations. Deep down inside, you love hearing stories about this friend’s wicked ways and live vicariously through them to a certain extent. Yes, you’ll probably have to bail Scorpio out of a few scrapes, but they’ll help you walk on the wild side from time to time.
Libra and Sagittarius
Onlookers might shake their heads at this friendship, saying, "What’s a cultured person like Libra doing with a big buffoon like Sagittarius?" What such critics don’t realize is that you adore the Archer’s buffoonery. As far as you’re concerned, life’s too short to be taken seriously, which is why you delight in Sagittarius’ pratfalls and bawdy jokes. Similarly, this sign loves the fact that a polished person like yourself can let loose with a wicked laugh. Is there ever any tension between you? Well, yes. Sagittarius gets a teeny bit tired of your debating every single point of their arguments, while you cringe at their tactless remarks. Still, you can always smooth things over with your favorite activities, like sports, partying, and eating al fresco.
Libra and Capricorn
Your Capricorn pal is here to challenge you in fundamental ways. The two of you have little in common, save for your leadership abilities. Therefore, a power struggle is bound to break out between you. That being said, you’re good leaders in totally different areas. The Goat is an authority at managing things, while you’re better at developing ideas. Therefore, if you’re planning a picnic, put Capricorn in charge of arranging what food to bring, while you focus on picking the location, date, and time. Yes, sometimes the Goat’s pessimism will make you want to scream, while your indecision will prompt Capricorn to grind their teeth. Still, you do have an affinity for beautiful vistas and may enjoy hikes and nature walks. Discussing politics can also be a stimulating pastime for you.
Libra and Aquarius
This is a lovely friendship that is destined to give much pleasure to you both. You love to talk and Aquarius likes to listen. You enjoy throwing parties and Aquarius enjoys attending them. You’ve got lots of questions and the Water-bearer has all the answers. What isn’t there to adore about this relationship? Well, it’s true that Aquarius is a bit stubborn and doesn’t like to change their plans the way you do. On the other hand, you can be a trifle bossy, which rubs this free spirit the wrong way. If you can agree to overlook each other’s faults (and you probably can), there can be much merriment here.
Libra and Pisces
An artistic soul like you can’t help but respond to Pisces’s creative spirit. And while the two of you enjoy building castles in the air, you do have problems with each other’s methods. You feel uncomfortable when the Fish looks to you for guidance, since you don’t want to cramp their style. Similarly, Pisces is intimidated by your witty and charming conversation and is often tongue-tied in your presence. So how can you resolve these differences? Well, you can start by encouraging the Fish to follow their instincts whenever they ask for approval. Pisces will always perk right up when you express faith in their intuition. On the other side, Pisces can stop struggling to keep up with your witty banter, feeling safe in the knowledge that what you really want is a friend who knows how to listen.
