Famous Leo-Libra Couples: Rosalynn and Jimmy Carter, Zelda and F. Scott Fitzgerald, Halle Berry and Eric Benet
This is a good match, especially for a first marriage. It can tend toward formulaic relating, but that is helpful in some cases where the partners do not have a lot of experience. Both signs are inclined to follow the rules, and they bring out in one another a tendency to mistake following the rules for actually having a relationship. In other words, if I bring you flowers every Valentine’s Day, or if I take your coat to the cleaners religiously, does that mean that I love you? Does this suffice for loving you? Does it pass for loving you? The vital dynamic between Leo and Libra is neither dynamic nor vital but it can be very appropriate, if you know what I mean. Let’s say, Libra man, that your career would go better if you had a wife and let’s say, Leo woman, that you want to please your parents who have been married for 30 years …
How to Attract a Leo Woman as a Libra Man: Please remember that Leo women get a lot of attention from men, some of whom are less substantive than you, but a lot more showy. We are concerned that she may mistake your even temperament and harmonious ways for indifference or neutrality. It will help if you talk the language of love. For example, do you know that a dozen red roses sends a different message than any other bouquet? Did you know that asking her out for Saturday night is much more significant than any other day of the week? In your mind these contrivances may be insignificant, but they are the best way you have for communicating that your interest is out of the ordinary. Otherwise your ships may pass silently in the night and she will never know what a wonderful person she missed, simply because your approach was so balanced and proper.
How to Attract a Libra Man as a Leo Woman: You will have to convince him that you are a lady. Libra and Capricorn men are sticklers on this point. This means that you will have to show your social skills and good manners from the get-go. You can also expect a quid-pro-quo courtship . Even though the rules say you should answer him one time for every four times he calls or texts you, with Libra and Leo I would make an exception. If he hits the ball to your court, return it. Don’t put a spin on it. Don’t hot dog it. Don’t rush the net or get fancy. Just hit the ball back. That’s talking his language. On the other hand, he will tend to love your social skills. It won’t bother him at all that you get so much attention because he feels that reflects on him. You should find this relaxing fun after being with so many guys who are jealous of your popularity.
Degree of Romance: Leo and Libra were born to romance one another. Leo will always be a little bit disappointed in Libra because he lacks spontaneity and creativity. But he makes up for it in good taste and aesthetics. This is one relationship where Ms. Leo may be surprised to find herself with a rival for choosing the silver pattern or contemplating the decor of the new home. Libra is more tasteful than Leo as a general rule. If she‘s smart, the lady lion will give that some serious consideration.
Degree of Passion: Leos like to act passionate but unlike their reputation, they are really ruled by their heads, not their hearts. For a Leo, love is more of an act of will than a feeling. This actually will draw you closer together because Libra is so cerebral. Libra celebrates romance as an aesthetic — because it is beautiful and enhances life. Libra values ideals and invests heavily in them. The problems start if Leo wants to get down and real, even bawdy and raucous. Count Libra out.
Degree of Friendship: These two can be fairly fine friends especially if they have a common goal or project such as advancing each other’s careers, decorating a home, or raising perfectly adorable and mannerly children. They have the temperament of friends because they bring out the cool-headed equanimity of one another. Leo has the reputation of being a jungle animal but Libra brings out the regal dignified aspect instead.
Degree of Marriage: This is a fairly good combo for marriage. For one thing, both partners “believe in” marriage. This turns out to be a deciding factor in marital longevity. These two each like to please others and to “look good”. They will often keep a marriage together just to handle the format so to speak. It can get pretty fake at times but the years go by and nobody notices. A lot can be accomplished by this pair in terms of conventional maturation tasks such as ripening careers, getting the kids into good colleges, eating healthy and stashing away money for retirement.
Progression of Relationship: Libra is a cardinal sign and must be in control. He is always thinking and has a strategy in mind. The relationship will go where he wants it to go or it will end. Many, many a Leo woman has been managed by a Libra man and never even noticed when he slipped the collar around her neck. This is pretty beautiful in and of itself. No one can domesticate a Leo goddess like a Libra man.
Sex: Sex between a Libra man and Leo woman is like a Japanese courtesan and her patron. There is a highly intellectualized component having to do with niceties, appropriateness, and aesthetics. There will be very little spontaneity and practically no exploration beyond the initial getting-to-know-you stage. Sex can become nicely ritualized and pleasing with no rude surprises or jealous scenes of passion. This is one relationship where sex may be viewed mostly as a procreative function.
When It’s Over: When it ends you will see the cold side of Libra who, as it turned out, had an exit strategy all along. Mr. Libra is a born game-player who will always play the last card to win. Don’t be naive, Leo. If you enter a relationship with a Libra, get somebody knowledgeable on your side like a lawyer if you start to have problems.
