Libra Woman Leo Man
When the Libra woman falls in love with a Leo man, you can be sure that this a couple which will move in very exalted circles indeed. Both very sociable people – and both rather social climbers too, if we’re honest – Leo man Libra woman compatibility is underpinned by their joint charm and gregariousness. But is that enough to sustain the relationship long term?
Both the Libra woman and the Leo man are seeking a partner who will adore and cherish them, and in the case of the Leo man, a woman who will flatter him and stoke his ego on a regular basis. The languid, loving Libra woman will do anything to please her man, and will certainly offer him this undying adulation. When you factor in the fact that she’ll also enjoy being by his side in company, and will maintain an immaculate home for him to entertain in, and it’s easy to see why the Leo man is attracted to the Libra woman, at least on a superficial level.
Libra woman Leo man compatibility goes much deeper than this, however. The Libra woman is the ultimate idealist in love, and the powerful, dignified, regal Leo man is absolutely her idea of the perfect partner. He is proud of her, he’s romantic, generous and loyal. Together, they lead a relatively glamorous lifestyle, whatever their level of income, and they always do their best to keep up appearances. So what could go wrong for Libra woman Leo man compatibility?
Emotionally, this couple have quite different natures. The larger than life Leo man wears his heart on his sleeve, and he makes decisions quite instinctively and quickly, with all the energy and self-assurance that his being a fire sign provides. The Libra woman, on the other hand, is a creature of intellect. She weighs decisions carefully and rationally, and is notoriously indecisive. The Leo man may tire of his Libra woman’s ability to see every side of every coin, especially when she second guesses decisions he’s already made. She in turn may grow to resent his “leadership” of their relationship – she may be quite a passive lady in most situations, but she is a cardinal sign and she is quite capable of leading herself, thank you very much. For the Libra woman and Leo man, compatibility starts to stumble over these decision making and leadership issues.
The Leo man does have a jealous streak, and there’s a fine line between him basking in the reflected glory of his Libra lady’s popularity….or becoming consumed with a jealous rage if she lingers too long with someone. His temper greatly upsets her, as she values harmony and peace very highly. Because the Libra woman finds it very hard to cope with discord, there is a risk here that she will fall into line with her Leo man for the sake of a quiet life – but that’s a potentially vicious cycle which really must be avoided if Libra woman Leo man compatibility is to thrive.
Ultimately, however, it may be circumstances which force this couple to part, rather than their basic natures. Both like the finer things in life, and this partnership will be at its best during financially comfortable times. If one partner loses their job, however, or financial constraints are imposed for whatever reason, both will become moody and upset, and they may struggle to find common ground away from the luxurious natures which first drew them together. Libra woman Leo man compatibility struggles to withstand the tougher times in life.
Libra Woman and Leo Man Compatibility
This relationship should work very nicely, but rarely does, and I will tell you why: The Leo man is basically looking for a loyal subject. In fact, Leos are famous for “marrying down”. They tend to choose a woman who is beneath them in some way so that they can be heroic and lift her out of whatever circumstances she’s in. This is, in essence, a noble inclination. However, there is not a Libra woman in this world who needs to be treated that way. Libra has a reputation of being indecisive, which is confused with being weak, but nothing could be farther from the truth. Libra is a cardinal sign. They may take their time coming to the right decision, but they are brilliant strategists and initiate when necessary. Your Libra woman is like the goddess Athena, who reigns over just wars, the wars that must be fought. Does this like sound somebody who needs to be lifted up anywhere? Libra might agree to be the power behind the throne, but not likely.
How to Attract a Leo Man as a Libra Woman
It will be ridiculously easy for you to figure your Leo man out, so the best advice I can give you is — and you’ve heard this before and ignored it before — don’t be too smart for your own good. The Leo man is guileless and naïve for the most part, so it will be easy for you to box him in. Just make sure you want the box when all is said and done.
How to Attract a Libra Woman as a Leo Man
The best thing you can do for yourself, if you are smitten by a Libra woman, is to find ways to honor her intelligence. It must be an honest gesture. She can tell if you really respect her mind or not, and she will balk completely at being patronized. Chances are she is smarter than you anyway, so you might as well get used to it. Ask her advice and by all means do what she tells you to do, and you’ll pretty much have her in harness. It would help if you had a joint-venture to offer, such as starting a business interest together.
Degree of Romance
Romance is so good between the two of them that it can go a long way toward masking other difficulties. If they meet when they’re young, this will be even more of a problem because love is blind. Libra is not inclined to face difficulties, preferring to ignore confrontation as long as possible. Leo’s ego will lead him to believe that everything is fine as long as she doesn’t call anything to his attention. Issues pile up as the months go by and there can be a horrendous face-off when Libra finally decides to even the score. (Libra is the consummate score-keeper.)
Degree of Passion
The Leo man is likely to feel very passionate toward the Libra woman. It may blind him to other important essentials that are missing.
Degree of Friendship
These two signs don’t come together easily in friendship. Librans tends to be business-like and calculating in their approach. The Libra woman would be inclined to say, “If I wanted a friend, I wouldn’t be dating him.” Leos don’t date for friendship. Period. They are looking for an erotic and romantic connection.
Degree of Marriage
Leo man and Libra woman can work okay in a first marriage where the emphasis is on accomplishing certain tasks, such as child-rearing and career-building. Libra can help Leo stick to business, but, as the years go by, it may become more and more evident that they have little in common, and worse, they may singularly lack good negotiating skills because of the tendency of each sign to ignore what they don’t like and gloss it over “for the time being”.
Progression of Relationship
The Leo man is very traditional and old-fashioned. If he’s interested in marrying you, he’ll follow the rules meticulously. He will make sure you know you’re special to him. Libra, though, is the pace-setter, a cardinal sign and strategist. Thus the Libra woman will move the relationship forward in increments. They may have an especially good time dating, only to discover later, when the emphasis is less on fun and romance, that they lack some necessary ingredient for the hard work of marriage. Since these are both good and well-meaning people, they may need to ask the opinions of others as to the appropriateness of their pairing.
