Lori,
as far as I could find out, the option HeadScaling->Relative which
should do what you want, doesn't work with ListPlotVectorField. So I
played around with a hacked version of ListPlotVectorField, here it is.
Don't blame me, I know it's awful.
<<Graphics`Arrow`
norm[x_] := Sqrt[x . x]
makeArray[{x_,y_}]:=Arrow[x,x+y,HeadLength->.01 norm[y]]
Of course you adapt the HeadLength function to your needs.
varray = Flatten[Table[
{{i,j},{Random[Real, {-0.7, 0.7}],
Random[Real, {-0.7, 0.7}]}},
{i, 10}, {j, 10}],1]
This is a modification of the example of the Help for
ListPlotVectorField, note that I have to give the coordinates for the
bases too. The rest is to show how to use it.
nvarray=makeArray/@varray;
Show[Graphics[nvarray],AspectRatio->Automatic]
You'll have to scale your arrows by yourself, I doubt you can have a
graphical representation of 4 magnitudes, but at least it's up to you
to shape your graphic to your gusto.
