Sun in Aries, Moon in Libra Compatibility

These two are the classic male/female archetypes, come to life. The Aries Warrior and Libra Maiden will perform the age-old dance of courtship, fueled by conflict, passion and balance.

Sun in Aries is the pursuer. Nothing catches his eye like an unattainable goal. Easily bored and in constant need of a challenge, Sun in Aries wants a partner who keeps him guessing. But she must walk the fine line between challenging and unavailable. Aries is a sprinter; he’ll lose interest in someone who forces him into a long-distance pursuit. Once he’s in a relationship, Aries’ focus will primarily be on his goals. His purpose in life is to develop an identity by pushing ahead of the crowd.

Moon in Libra instinctively knows how to play the game. It’s true that her primary need is to be in a relationship, but she feels most secure when being pursued. Courtship makes her feel appreciated. A partner who doesn’t recognize this will receive some indirect hints, colored by resentment. This will be due to Moon in Libra’s desire for balance. She’ll convince herself that everything’s fine, but her buried anger will leak through. Libra is a pro at sussing out her partner’s needs, but this often happens at the expense of her own.

Aries Sun and Libra Moon will be drawn to each other’s differences. Moon in Libra’s flirtatious appreciation will make Aries glow.  Sun in Aries fiery pursuit will make Libra feel wanted. However, conflicts will be unavoidable, since Aries and Libra are opposite signs. Aries’ self-centeredness will provoke Libra’s resentment. And Libra’s need to be part of a couple will trigger Aries’ desire to be free. But this is when the balanced part of the opposition will kick in. Moon in Libra is wired to respond to her partner’s desires. She’ll pull back, make herself emotionally unavailable, and Aries’ interest will be renewed. The chase will be on again.
