Leo Man and Libra Woman Compatibility

Famous Leo-Libra Couples:

Asif Ali Zadan and Benazir Bhutto, Pete Sampras and Bridgette Wilson-Sampras, Sam Mendes and Kate Winslet

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 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.

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.

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.  Life is different than a vacation in Chinpinque Mesa in Monterrey.


Sex is a real plus in this combination.  Both partners tend to look at it as fun and want to “do their best.”  They are both inclined to get lost in the romantic aspects of sex, such as romantic foreplay, candlelight settings, and maybe a few wardrobe changes.  They are one couple that is likely to be able to talk about sex as well as enjoying it.  This should be a comfortable, fun area of the relationship and probably pretty carefree.

When It’s Over:

It may take a while for these two to get to the point because neither of them wants to give up their romantic illusion.  It is, however, quite likely to be mutual when the time comes, so that there are less hurt feelings than normal.  When all is said and done, they are both likely to shrug their shoulders and say, “Oh well, we gave it our best shot.”  They may even grow fonder of each other out of the relationship than in it.  There’s a lot of respect between these two people.  It’s just not the best combination for marital dynamics.

  1. I hate how Libras are considered indecisive. I went out with a Leo once who was so indecisive. I was leaving from my internship after we left and he would message me saying he missed me then next minute be super cold and all. I told him I wanted a relationship with him but he randomly ended things…

  2. Well, I would say contrary to the part that Leo and libra too hard to be together. I met my husband in 2005 and we are together and are still in love and spend time with each other even after two kids.

    All I can say: love is a secret promise that is made to be together at all times.

    Remember: Make a promise when you know you won’t break it

  3. @leoaqua, a Scorpio will not stay in anything until death, please dont get it confused, scorpio values commitments and take them very seriously, however there will always be that one last straw that breaks the camel back… And when it does, trust me, its broken till death…..a scorpio is very determined and forceful and will not just give up for the sake of giving up, they will truly be there with you for better or for worst but not after you’ve betrayed their trust.

    Its true, Libra’s love to “keep score”, I have a friend who is in a libra/aqua and a libra/scorpio relationship and I tell them both everyday, do not try to keep tab of an aqua or scorpio, you will never win, they hate the feeling of been possesed and they wouldnt listen to me and now funny enough the libra/scorpio union ended and the libra/aqua one battling on life support.

    I think people just need to understand themselves before they can truly understand others…the biggest mistake we make is that we love others the way WE want to be loved in return, we need to learn and understand what makes the person we are with feel loved and love them in that way and not the way we expect them to love us back.

    Thing is people receives love in many different ways, may it be, words of affirmation, gifts, physical touch, quality time or acts of service…and until we learn this about someone, we are just going to continue loving them the way we want to receive love instead of the way that person actually receives love…( have you not always hear people say, ‘why cant you love me the way I love you’- thats cause it doesnt work like that.)

    Scenario 1 – you meet someone, really attractive person but you are the type of person who loves to receive words of affirmation and physical touch and so you lather them with warm touches and whatnot thinking oh they will feel loved if I do this alot to them – WRONG (thats how YOU receive love)

    Scenario 2 – you meet someone, very attracted to you, and you are the type of person who loves to spend quality time together, so whenever you can, often times more than not, you always try to have some “us” time, thinking oh spending alot time together will make the person feel loved if I do this – WRONG ( thats how YOU received love)

    Reality – Learn about each – pay attention to the signals, understand what makes the other person feel loved and how they receive love and bestow upon them just that -PERIOD-.

    Remember though, that how they receive love may in most cases be different from you, so its important that you be sure you will be able to tolerate their needs of how they receive love…..because you might be with someone who loves receiving alot of gifts and you may find that to be rather vain, but hey that’s who the person is, up to you to love that person that way or not.

    People will often say, first love yourself before you can love anyone else and self love is best love la-da-daa….yes you need to love yourself first as that allows you to understand who you are and what you stand for but dont try to love someone else the same way you love yourself because their self love is also different from your self love and you cant impose your own self love one someone else…. You will end up loving only yourself which I think might be a bit selfish.

    Stems back to a discussion I had the other day with someone and their words were….. “I think we can re-generate love…..love is like a fire which cannot burn without proper fueling of RESPECT & TRUST.”….

    Its really true..I m a Libra girl n my boyfriend is Leo..our time go best wen v r together..he loves me lot

  5. i dont like that libra is a “score-keeper” that is very stressful to hear and not good in a relationship.

    i do notice that this couple rarely lasts, and i notice that too with Libra mars in the chart with different sun signs. I have two family members and knew another person who is a friend of one of theirs with libra mars, and they were with leo suns. didnt work either. Now i love my family members but i dont know how libra venus works in a relationship with leo.

    i do notice that lots of successful couples who are libra in personal planets together last longer or at least happier. I dont know why, it’s the libra connection.

    sadly i also know libra suns who have alot of Scorpio stay in miserable relationships. to the death. 🙁 and the relationshp is toxic. I Always feel so bad for them but it is the life they choose.

  6. princesslibraSeptember 5, 2015 at 12:40 pm

    I met my Leo on a social media site I was not looking for a relationship at all just friendship and instantly I was in love with him I was shocked and amazed at how instantly I fell in love with him I didn’t see it coming it was so mysterious to me l asked him what did he do to me even he was surprised I asked him what did he do to me and how did I fall in love with him so fast less than a month .my only gripe is when I call or text him he ignores me I don’t like to be ignored I don’t think anyone does I complained to him about it but it fell on deaf ears I don’t know what else to do about it.

  7. I don’t believe this to be true. I am a Libra woman who has been dating my Leo man for almost a year. I love his strength and don’t mind being subservient to him. He’s more accomplished in life than i am. He does save me from time to time, but I shower him with praise and appreciation when I can, how I can. He seems to love it as just reciprocation. Sex is aammaazing. The more gentle send attentive I am to him, the more he open’s up and lives me more. I see this relationship lasting a long time. I’m already in love. He hasn’t said it yet, but the way he looks at me and touches my hand or randomly carresses my neck. I know it’s not too far away. Good luck with love!

  8. I don’t generally chime in, but I have to disagree. This assessment of the leo and libra couldn’t be more wrong… well, totally different than my own experience with libras and even the assessment that this profile gives about me, the leo. This couldn’t be more wrong. I’m not sure if you could consider me and my date typical leo and libra. Well, I’m not possessive or desire to date or marry a woman beneath me. On the contrary, I am intelligent, but I want an equal. As far as her profile, it seems to be correct for the most part.

  9. Im a libra girl just started dating a leo man. it was attraction at first sight. wow. we text all day long. I dont ever think I could run out of good things to say about him and Im always telling him how amazing he is. funny, silly, outgoing, spontanious. everything Iam almost as if im looking into a mirrior.when were together cant stop touching each othier but hes not as verbal as Im but I know how he feels when im with him, hes very loving and passionate person. in everything he does. I have found my night and shining amor. only thing is I dont know how he canisters me as a girl friend or not I dont just want to be one of his buddys I want someone like him in my life for long time what should I do? please help me…

  10. True about Leo men often looking for a loyal subject. Which most of us Libra women (definitely myself) are going to roll our eyes at and reject. But I actually like Leo men a lot, and find that in general I get along with them really well. I’m rarely sincerely impressed with a dude, but I casually dated a Leo man for a while and I’ve actually never respected a man more. I appreciated SO much that he was always fair and cheerful and respectful; he never flaked, was always polite and kind but still playful and fun.

    “It will be ridiculously easy for you to figure your Leo man out…The Leo man is guileless and naïve for the most part, so it will be easy for you to box him in” hahaha… SO true.

    I wasn’t in love, but I definitely appreciated this Leo guy’s integrity and goodness, especially after a particularly disappointing relationship with a Sag (Now I know better…Thank God).


  12. i’m a libra woman. i met my leo man 17 months ago and i fell for him mysteriously at first hi. he’s very funny and affectionate in his own way. i can feel that he cares a lot about me. he can always make me smile whatever mood i’m in. when i can’t eat or sleep i just need him to show up and both will come easily! very unusual effects he’s got on me but i guess that shows how comfortable i am with him around. i’m a writer and he’s always been my first reader and he always supports me. he gets jealous easily, he can be jealous just reading my work if he thinks it mentions something about my ex boyfriends. but i honestly enjoy being protected and adored so his innocent jealousy doesn’t bother me. he compliments me every chance he gets and it always feels fresh and genuine. sexually he’s always such a turn on and i dare to say it is vice versa. we can talk about sex and enjoy it at the same time. i’m way smarter than him and i make him think, he keeps saying. i keep telling him that he must be smart too to be able to make me laugh and flattered in many ways. he remembers every word i say and he can use it as a gun easily when he feels necessary, especially because indecisiveness is my nature. but i guess it means he really listens. i’m very argumentative and he’s not interested in debate so when we have a fight it’s actually me against myself most of the time. i’m so full of ups and downs and he’s quite stable and stability is the most fundamental thing i need as i’ve been a single mother before i met him. in impatience or jealousy unkind words are said sometimes, he says i know how to wreck him with only words, but i never meant to hurt him just like i know he never meant to hurt me when he just leaves when a fight is taking place. we already talk about marriage but i have an acute weakness: i need to be convinced all the time. recently we had a big fight and i said strong words to him after i made him confess he slept with a couple of girls when we had a break last year. i guess i’m worried too much and even though he kept saying he wouldn’t ever cheat i just hurt. i told him that he had to do something real to prove his intention towards our relationship. he hasn’t showed up or talked to me for a few days ever since the fight and i miss him so very much. i am filled with affection for him and i don’t like him being hurt too. i wish his long legs would carry him to me in no time. i keep wishing since he’s the best love my heart has ever experienced. all the romance, warmth, like the warmth of the sun. i wish you all a happy love life.

  13. I am libra woman who has been with her leo man from the age of 17 and we are 23 years strong. While we have had our differences.. every sign has their differences and no one sign is perfectly compatible with the other. There are pluses and minuses for each but in the case of leo and libra, these two signs posess traits that complement each other very well. I have read a lot of compatibility reports and this is the first one i have EVER read that had any indication of the two not being suited for marrige or being very lasting. Couple with the fact that we are on our 24th year together and have been living together for 22 of those years, have two children ages 11 and 13 and continue to have a good life understanding, we are proof that this report is not very accurate at all.

  14. I dated a Leo man. I will say I was so taken by him and he was the first man to initiate the couple talk. I thought I found him, the one I would be with for a long time. But he just stopped calling and we stopped seeing each other. He finally told me after I explained it to him that he couldn’t handle a woman like me, meaning in his mind I didn’t know my place as the woman and didn’t live up to his expectations of that. I was no longer special to him but a highly opinionated woman who yells at him. He may be still searching for the right woman, but that man still calls me so I can yell at him and I believe he likes it. I say we would make the perfect couple!!!

  15. As a Libra woman i will agree that leo man is traditional but willoverlook some of your drawbacks if he feels strongly about you. my husband of 6 yrs is a leo. now i am caring but not so (work two jobs)when it cam eto caring for his parents. his ex (aqua) on the other hand was really good at all that. she would go to the care center wher his mother was chek her meds and treatment n stuff where his mother was and take her out for walks in evenings to a park and little picnics by the lake even sometimes! but leo’s relationship with her was mostly good friends till they split. they still are and i don’t mind. i guess you can say we are more than good friends! we manage to be romantic even afte all these yrs and yes my leo checks on hismother and takes her out occassionally for walks and such.

  16. its tha loyal thing im not sure about he and my sis-in-law hung out A LOT she had been to his house nd he to hers more then once i feel strongly that they have been together sexually (i thought about her while we were having sex)

  17. very very very much accurate

  18. owesum dear thts all true speacially Libra Leo dnt stays longer, the fact u described is absolutely right it happens with me………….

  19. Pretty accurate. A leo just broke my heart. I wanted marriage, he didn’t. Sex was amazing, but that’s about it. Now that we are broken up he expects to stay friends. I can’t handle that. There were subtle attempts to be psychologically abusive or controlling towards me. He did feel I was ‘beneath’ him.

  20. libralovesvirgoDecember 9, 2010 at 10:44 pm

    Wow, #8, YOU nailed it
    I met him at 22,,, married at 23… kids/twins at 26… misery set in, I have been sleeping on the sofa for 10 years, according to him, I am worthless, can’t hold down a job worth a d@^^, can’t clean the house right, can’t parent the kids right…. I don’t hate him, however, we have decided mutually to get a amicable, peacefull divorce before we end up hating each other. I have a Virgo man now… and , uh… hummm WOW!

  21. David LierreNovember 28, 2010 at 8:15 pm

    Shouldn’t relationships matter on how you were raised plus the signs you are? I’m a little skeptical but the basic ideas are true in my opinion. But to me as a Leo, I find it very caring just for that Libra women to be next to me. Sometimes she will ask me what I want to do and most of the times I let her decide. Although we’ve been talking only for a few months, we’ve been getting very very close. I’m about to go to USMC Marine bootcamp soon why would I jeopardize my only bestfriend before I leave. Nancy please help me understand, I really am in love with this woman and she is with me, I treat her with respect and commitment but how can I talk to my Libra about her true feelings like you said. Would it be easy as sitting down and letting each other talk? i really want this to work, to prove Leo’s and Libras can work not only because of the signs but how much we have in common as well. I just want to figure out how to break the romantic illusion as I’m willing to do anything to make her happy by her own choices. Thank you Nancy

  22. I’m a Libra woman and the discription of Libra caracteristic traits are verry accurate however I dont think a “compatibility reading” can say whether you and your Loe man will break up and be misserable! Its not a fair judgement and its not a prediction! Life isnt about what your Zodiac sign or any other sing for that matter predicts what you would do in certain sittuations or who you are! You are your own persone despite what your Zodiac sign claims..

  23. Libra&Leo 2gether4everNovember 12, 2010 at 2:40 am

    I have experienced all of the above and feel sometimes that we are not a good match. However, I am deeply in love with him and can not see myself with no one else. I hope and pray that our relationship with never end and we are just going through the normal stages of a relationship. No relationship is perfect and I truly feel love will conquer all insecurities.

  24. After reading the article, I am gettin a little nervous about my relationship with my Leo. So far, we seem like a good match. We have only been dating for about 5 months. We both are business minded, and very smart. We have a lot of personality and very talkative. I am in my late 20s and he is in his mid 30s, so we are not very young. Hopefully we make it through the negatives.

  25. Wow.
    Story of my life.
    Met him@ 19. Married. Kids. Misreable with him.
    Nothing in common, and controlling over me. I would be nothing if it wasn’t for him he says.
    I hate him.

  26. I met a Libra woman last year and we started out as friends and as a MAN, my character is for all who is in need I shall provide for what Im blessed with I should be a blessing to others. We became spiritually, mentally and physically connected. This Libra woman to me is like a queen from her walk, the fire she displays when she talks and the love that she shows her PRINCE. How she teaches my princesses and brings joy to us all with a guilty innocence thats comical but honest. She is spiritual and wants to get better and makes me want to get better but in a conversation we had recently we agreed that in order to sustain in such relationship to a higher order we much maintain the friendship. The love will grow with that sincerity because a MAN I want to save her but not just her but her child and her household if I could. With the Most High’s blessings I shall share my GRACE with her as long as she receives but because we have the friendship if we are man and wife or not we will always be friends. Yet as she would say we wont let man define us only the MOST HIGH knows are path and with that we will follow his lead.
