How does a Libra woman resolve conflict with an Aquarius man?

fenceAir signs like to talk things out — yet the three members of this clan do so in vastly different ways. Take, for example, Libra and Aquarius. Libra talks as a way of building a one-on-one connection, and one of her prime assets (as well as liabilities) is being able to view an issue from multiple perspectives. This understanding helps her to moderate between opposing parties, and suits her well for careers in mediation, law and public relations. However, this ability to balance the scales can work against her in her personal life, for in trying to please everyone, she may neglect her own needs.

Aquarius, on the other hand, approaches relationships from a more detached perspective. The Water Bearer is friendly, to be sure, but in a more impersonal way than Libra. Aquarius talks to spread ideas through the collective, as his ultimate purpose is to improve the lot of humanity. He has fairly fixed ideas, and thus is less able to be swayed by someone else’s viewpoint. He feels confident that his ideas are revolutionary, yet he also feels misunderstood because so few embrace his vision. This sense of alienation can make him unyielding in discussions.

What happens if you put Libra and Aquarius in a romantic realtionship? As much as these two Sun signs are compatible, they have their differences. Libra, being an initiating cardinal sign, will attempt to resolve their problems, yet Aquarius can be so stubborn in his belief of “how things should be” that Libra — able to get where he’s coming from — jumps off the fence (where she lives much of the time) to his side.

After having compromised numerous times, Libra’s anger starts to build up. This Venus-ruled sign may be refined and polite, but everybody gets angry! Libra just has a hard time owning and expressing it. After all, Libra is opposite from Aries, the Warrior, who has no problem blowing off steam. As Aries is direct, Libra can express her anger indirectly. For example, if she does not want to agree with Aquarius but also does not want to be upfront about it, she may use indecision as an act of defiance.

    you thought i was a cancer/aries/virgo?

    could be cause i do have those energies.

    but to tell you the truth about aquarius man, his least chosen and least successful relationship in marriage statistics are libra woman. he probably figures it out later much to his detriment.

    however, i’m not saying that these aqua men with loads of libra in their chart wont get you.
    you’ll just have to find them.

    his number 1 choice is leo woman.

  3. Yes Aquarian men number one choice is Leo women.
    Dont forget as well Aquarius men marry and divorce many times especially when they are young.
    Usually one of the women he divorced in those years was probably a Leo. Why?…because Leos are decisive and passionate about their relationship with aquarius, and dont forget confidence. Usually Aquarius will dodge until he is completely hooked. Its rare these two signs will age together….. their sun signs are somehow polarized…. making it difficult to survive for decades.
    Great e.g Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, with leo loving aquarius too much.

    Most Aquarian men first live with a Cancer woman, then they split up, mutually sad reasons, then he finds a Libra woman, nine times out of ten he loses her to another Aquarius man, but eventually the right Libra woman and the right Aquarius man find eachother, then there is a bond that nothing can break. A Leo woman with an Aquarius man?
    A Leo woman needs a bit steadier of a rock in her life, with him she would have to always be the grown up in the relationship.
    She would be way better off with a Scorpio man, Aqua guys and Leo women rarely see eye to eye, as much as they could love and respect eachother, theyre so different, its like a Libra woman with a Sagitarius guy, very volitile and viscious LOL I am with an Aquarius guy and his Leo sister is great, I really like her, but omg, they don’t understand eachother very well, she is married to a Scorpio man, and wow! they are so happy its lasted 19 years and they still seem like newly weds :)
    Me and my Aqua its been 2 years now, and hes more intense about the relationship then ever before, the longer we are together the less time he spends away from me, I have had a few aqua boyfriends in the past but he is the most amazing person, he takes my advice, I take his, there are no egos, we are puzzle pieces that lock, thats how he describes us to everyone, we finish each others sentences, as annoying as some people find us when we’re together, for me, I’ve never been so happy. I hope everyone ends up with what I found. Bobby Brown, didn’t he hit her? OMG please tell me you don’t find that cool. My guys named is Bobby too, but he doesn’t hit girls.

  5. lol please aquarius men are the worst men on earth whores liars cheaters dogs ..they will cheat on you while he’s eating your lunch and he will date other women while your cooking him dinner he will date other women behind your back hes the biggest player in the zodiac the pimp dog player he doesnt care about your feelings he wants to be friends so he can sleep with other woman he finds leo’s stuck up and libras a follower. aquarius best match is sagittarius but he’s too selfish to give yp all his hoes for her he cannot live his life with one woman and loves social sites..BEWARE OF THE AQUARIUS MAN THE CHEATER THE PLAYER THE HO HOES

  6. AQUARIUS MEN ARE SEXY BUT PRONE TO LYING CHEATING AND MAKING YOU FEEL LIKE SHIT FROM VERBAL ABUSE THEY ARE THE BIGGEST CHEATERS OUT THERE

    lol
    Not my guy. He’s the opposite, of course he has a Capricorn moon and he’s Taurus Rising, his Venus is in Pisces… I don’t know if those are factors but when I see another woman throwing herself at him, he doesn’t even seem tempted, its amusing. People seem to label Libras as cheaters too, but I’ve never cheated on anyone. My rotten Libra ex husband didn’t cheat on me, hes a jerk but no cheater.

    A
    If you’re important to an Aqua he will never cheat. You’ve must have had a very casual relationship. Come to think of it, I’ve never been cheated on from anyone. I feel bad that so many have been cheated. It isn’t fair, at least you know you didn’t lose anything real. How can a cheater be real? They were never really there . You lost nothing. Not everyone is a creep. You’ll find someone better

    I agree with NewlyWedLibraLady – once an Aqua man commits to you they are loyal. I know several Aqua men including my boyfriend and this is my personal experience from what I’ve seen. My boyfriend can confuse the hell out of me (even though I’m Aqua too) but he’s never given me cause to be jealous – whenever we’re out he has a very subtle way of making it clear to other woman that he’s with me and not remotely interested in anyone else, without saying a word.

    As far as conflict is concerned, my bf and I have only ever had one fight but he would never raise his voice and neither would I – he just said his piece then I said mine. He let it go and t’s not been an issue since.
