In many situations, Scorpio will respond with greater emotional intensity than Libra. While Libra is not a cool and aloof individual, Scorpio's feelings can run deeper. For example, both of you want a close relationship, but Scorpio can become intensely fixated on a person and possessive, whereas Libra maintains a sense of proportion and some reasonable degree of objectivity and emotional distance from others, even in marriage. Scorpio's "urge to merge" can be very powerful. Libra's approach to life, in general, tends to be more moderate and well-balanced, while Scorpio tends to periodically become intensely focused on some area of concern and become even fanatical in pursuit of some interest. Libra's detached fairness can infuriate Scorpio at times, and Scorpio's inexplicable dark moods or fervent responses bewilder Libra. These differences need not create serious problems in your relationship. Emotional bonds between you can be very strong, especially if other astrological indications indicate strong romantic or sexual ties.
Libra is friendly, sociable, and agreeable, with a gracious, personable manner that others find very congenial. Libra enjoys people and wants so much to be liked and to be surrounded with pleasantness that Libra often avoids confronting people and dealing with anger and conflict in personal relationships. Scorpio, on the other hand, has a quiet disposition that makes much emotional complexity and sensitivity. Light, superficial social interaction doesn't interest Scorpio at all, and, in fat, frequently makes Scorpio feel separate and lonely.
Scorpio feels a whole range of powerful emotions - desire, jealousy, rage, fierce loving attachments or intense loathing - and Scorpio cannot live without relating on a very deep, intimate level, which often includes conflict and confrontation. In fact, if things become too easy and mellow, Scorpio will (consciously or unconsciously) provoke some trouble in a relationship. Scorpio seems to thrive on emotional drama and intensity, while Libra very much prefers harmony, sweetness, and peace. Scorpio is drawn to the hidden, dark, mysterious side of life and of people, while Libra focuses on the light and good in others. Generally Libra accepts people as they appear to be, while Scorpio probes and analyses and is more suspicious. Also, Scorpio can be manipulative and controlling, and may be subtly dominating in this relationship.
You work well together on the level of practical, mundane affairs and could function very well as business partners. When you blend your energies, financial matters, investments, and plans for the future security tend to work out quite well. Because you are able to cooperate to be faithful to your shared aims and goals, you make a successful team.
This relationship is intense and can blow hot or cold, and in fact, is likely to go through extremes of happiness and fulfilment as well as frustration and conflict. At times you may feel like adversaries. You can end up in bitter power struggles with each other, and feel like your partner is trying to manipulate you. To prevent these problems, you must be able to accept differences of opinion and differing goals and ambitions. Libra, especially, must avoid dominating or undermining Scorpio's efforts. You can drive one another to extremes.
You draw out of each other your deepest drives and desires.
The two of you arouse a zeal and sense of mission in each other that makes it possible for you to jointly accomplish extraordinary tasks. However, your fears and anxieties are brought to the surface too, and there is no guarantee that your zealousness will produce positive, constructive results. You may become fanatical in an extreme and unbalanced manner. Also, sexual passion, jealousy, and competition can be very volatile, disruptive, obsessive, and intense in this relationship.
Warm affection, romantic desire, and sexual harmony come naturally with the two of you. You'll find that expressing yourselves sexually will simply flow, and this should be a source of great fulfilment in your relationship, easing at least somewhat any of the other challenges or conflicts you may have.
This is a very creative union, and very fulfilling. In addition to the passionate element, which is quite strong, other avenues of creative self-expression flourish when the two of you work together. If either of you is artistically inclined, your relationship will enhance this. On a biological level, as well, the two of you are quite fertile.
Exciting new developments will always be happening in this relationship. You both have good judgement about what will and will not be pleasurable and satisfying in sexual expression.
Last minute changes of plans, based on doubts, fears, or simply a need to be certain of all details, will occur quite frequently in your relationship. Whether it is in regard to travels, signing legal documents or just about any joint endeavour, one of you will freeze up, baulk, hesitate or reconsider at the last minute. Outer circumstances beyond the control of either of you will also intervene. No doubt these things will sorely try your patience and good will, but a grin-and-bear-it attitude is about the only way to meet them. Mostly they are minor frustrations and delays, not insurmountable obstacles.
