Cardinal air and fixed water, fall moving into winter. Most of my references call this an extremist combination. I can’t quite see that. Both of these signs are focused on relationships. Scorpio insists on being in charge, making decisions and hardly conscious of even asking what the other party would like.
Scorpio thinks it knows. If not, they will research to find out what can be credible. Libra wants someone to make the decisions but isn’t attracted to not
being asked to discuss the situation, even though no amount of discussion will be enough to be sure. Scorpio is not able to stand the indecision. No matter what Scorpio decides, Libra will be aware of what is wrong with the decision.
Those of you having this conflict going on within yourself have a real problem. You do not have the luxury of living with the pros & cons until someone else makes the decision. You feel compelled to make the decision and then you have no one to blame but yourself when the negativities come in. Even if everyone else is happy with whatever you decided, you are still uncomfortable with what you see isn’t quite the way you would like it. Both of these signs are mentally oriented. It is the method that seems to be incompatible. Libra wants someone on the other side of the teeter totter to bounce back and forth with. Scorpio wants to research quietly and come up with a decision without discussing it until the mind is made up. “Please don’t confuse me with any more facts!” Furthermore, no explanation is necessary, especially if it is subjected to further consideration. If you as an individual are able to use both of these avenues to come to a decision without second guessing yourself all the time, you will have made a better decision. Your main problem will be letting alone the way you put it together. You will need to let go which is actually difficult for both of these signs. Scorpio hangs on because of the fixity which defends whatever it has implemented. Libra has a problem with letting go because of the embarrassment of presenting something that was less than perfect.
