Pisces - Libra Love Compatibility


The Mystic and the Negotiator


Pisces and Libra may not be the best ever star sign pairing! But they’re a great example of an apparently mismatched couple who – with a little patience and mutual give and take – can actually learn to thrive on their differences and incompatibilities.


As far as love compatibility is concerned, some people see this as one of the more challenging Sun Sign combinations, with one sign – Libra – ruled by the element of Air and the other – Pisces – ruled by the conflicting element of Water. In reality though, things aren’t necessarily as difficult as they might initially appear!

True, a fundamentally different approach to life – head-centered and fairly detached in the case of Libra – heart-centered and highly sensitive in the case of Pisces – can give rise to disagreements and some mutual misunderstandings. The emotionally needy – and at times rather moody – Fish can be hard to comprehend for logical Libra who, although very keen on talking things through, isn't always that great at relating to others' feelings.

But because Pisces and Libra are both born peacemakers, linked by a dislike of all forms of injustice and ugliness, they can help each other with their common goal of spreading a little sunshine in the world. From Libra, Pisces can learn to be more objective and less emotionally involved, while Pisces can teach Libra to rely less on logical analysis and get more in touch with its gut feelings.

Both being gentle and thoughtful souls, Pisces and Libra try their best to be very considerate of each others’ emotional needs. But those needs can often be quite different, and hard for one another to fulfil.

As an Air sign, Libra instinctively seeks to resolve problems rationally and fair-mindedly, while Pisces is governed largely by its gut instincts. Although superficially sympathetic, Libra can be surprisingly cool and detached when problems occur and may be unable to provide Pisces with the depth of heart-felt emotional support it so longs for. Libra, on the other hand, may complain that Pisces is incapable of sustaining an objective and logical discussion because it brings feelings into everything.

Due to their shared dislike of discord, Pisces and Libra will, however, tend to shy away from any kind of unpleasantness, preferring to put up with just about anything rather than risk an ugly confrontation. As a result serious emotional issues may be covered up because Libra is too polite and Pisces too emotionally sensitive to broach them. More honesty on the part of Libra and more courage on the part of Pisces will help to avoid minor differences building into something more major.


Sexually, Pisces and Libra aren't actually all that badly matched in that both have a powerful sense of romance and a compelling need for companionship. But whereas Air sign Libra is sexually turned on mainly by a meeting of minds, what Water sign Pisces needs most is a strong heart connection – and while the sentimental Fish may find Libra a bit too sexually detached and matter of fact, to Libra, Pisces can seem unreasonably insecure and clingy.


The strong element of vagueness and inconsistency in a Pisces-Libra relationship may represent the main challenge for these two star signs. Libra, the sign of the Scales, is probably the biggest procrastinator in the Zodiac and finds it hard to make yes-no decisions. Pisces, the sign of two Fishes swimming in opposite directions, is a master of the art of evasion and an expert escapist when backed up against a wall.

Pisces’ resistance to being pinned down makes it all the harder for Libra to clarify its own position. In turn, Libra’s difficulty in making its mind up further adds to Pisces’ inborn sense of confusion. Small wonder that, most of the time, neither person has a clue where the other one stands or really wants out of this relationship.

The big risk for any Pisces-Libra couple is that these two will never actually get it together. Or if they do get together, there will always be a strong element of on-off uncertainty in their relationship, making it difficult for them ever to make a binding commitment.
