If anything epitomizes the popular phrase 'opposites attract', it is the compatibility of Ariens and Librans with each other. While Aries is the first in the list of zodiac signs, Libra is the seventh and these are exactly opposite to each other. The Arien is a true lover of adventure, of everything new, and of decisions impulsive. On the other hand, the Libran is a balanced person who thinks things through (and can sometimes be very indecisive) and who thinks not only for her/himself but for her/his surroundings. Yet, what is it that makes these two exact opposites attract?

Libra - Aries Compatibility
Be it love or a simple friendship, there is a lot that allows a Libran and Arien to live together harmoniously. For one, Libra is a cardinal air sign while Aries is a cardinal fire sign. So, Libra gives air to this fiery sign to grow and prosper thereby being a suitable complement for this sun sign.
There is; however, another side to this coin too. Libra's air can also turn into a strong wind that can put out the fiery Arien. Striking a balance between these two personalities then is what makes any relationship between them work.
For instance, an Arien enjoys excitement and will probably do something to generate this excitement in life on an impulse. The Libran, on the other hand, prefers harmony and a well-thought out day or life. These characteristics can begin to get unnerving or plain annoying for the other and result in conflict.
They say that an Arien and a Libran can either get along extremely well or they cannot stand each other. The feelings are always extreme and there is no middle path. However, for any relationship between these two horoscope signs to work is to get them to strike that middle path where they can learn to accept each other and adapt to each other.
What makes the Aries - Libra Combination Work?
Since both the signs are at the opposite ends of the spectrum, more often than not they tend to teach other different things that makes the whole relationship so exciting. For instance, the all-too careful Libran learns from the adventures of the Arien, while the impulsive Arien learns to give any action at least one thought before going ahead and doing something.
This is what makes the bond and the Aries and Libra friendship compatibility so strong, because the two signs complete each other. So, if you wish to turn that friendship into a business partnership, you may just want to go ahead because both of you can balance each other's characteristics so beautifully.
When talking about the love compatibility of Ariens and Librans, it all starts with an instant attraction or infatuation. Again, going beyond this attraction seems a little difficult because then comes the time to start working things out and making sure it lasts.
However, if you get along like a house on fire because of the aforementioned traits, where the two signs perfectly complement each other, there should be no problem in making this relationship work. At the end of it, it is obvious that the two can have a lot of fun together and still understand each other in tougher times. This is the reason why Ariens and Librans are known to be highly compatible!
The compatibility of Aries and Libra in love and relationships also depends on the gender of the signs. A Libra man will love the Aries woman because of the spirit with which she lives her life, a spirit that is almost missing in his life. On the other hand, the Aries man will love every bit of the Libra woman, because she will show him the mirror and teach him to go beyond 'me' and think of 'us'.
What Doesn't Make the Aries - Libra Combination Work?
Because the Arien is the center of her/his own universe, the need for the Libran to think about every one around her/him can become a little too much to bear. This can create problems in the relationship.
Also, while their opposite personalities are absolutely delightful in the initial phases, it is later on where the problems can develop because these opposite traits are so stark.
Librans are known to enjoy making their partners jealous, which makes the Arien burn with rage. While it may be fun initially, a stop has to be put to all this for the relationship to work between these two signs.
To conclude, Libra is definitely among the signs an Arien is compatible with and vice versa if you are willing to make the effort to work out your relationship. If you think these barriers can be overcome, if you can indeed make your peace with a person who is unlike you in every possible way, and if you are willing to accept your friend or your partner the way she/he is, there is a great chance that your effort will result in the creation of a beautiful relationship that can last forever. The matter of compatibility will probably hold no significance then!
