When the Leo man falls in love with a Libra woman, 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 Leo man and the Libra woman 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.
Leo man Libra woman 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 Leo man Libra woman 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 Leo man and Libra woman, 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 Leo man Libra woman 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. Leo man Libra woman compatibility struggles to withstand the tougher times in life.
