This pairing brings together two lovers of beauty and artful living. Libra has no problem steering the conversation, which suits Pisces just fine. Libra is intrigued by Pisces imaginative mind, and hangs on every thoughtful word. Pisces feels safe in the balance-seeking engagement style of Libra. Both see a devoted partner that won't take advantage of their good qualities. Dates might be taking in cultural events, or an unhurried meal in an elegant, atmospheric restaurant. They soon sense the romantic in the other, and willingly fall head over heels.

At times, Libra and Pisces both like to float dreamily along the river of life. The go-with-the-flow natures make them easy mates. But sometimes they're a love vessel without a rudder. More than other signs, Libra uses the "other" as a compass for its own identity. Rather than a clear reflection, with Pisces it becomes a fun house of distorted mirrors, and Libra can lose its sense of self very easily. Pisces needs time to let all filter through, and may be pressured by Libra to talk. Libra's need for conversation clashes with the Piscean need to dwell in the fragments of experience. Libra feels frustrated by the lostness of Pisces, and the latter feels strongarmed and rushed.

As a cardinal sign, Libra is often the provocateur. Eager to keep the relationship growing, Libra tries to prod Pisces to step up, which only makes the Fishes swim more urgently in two directions. The diffuse, anchorless aspect of Pisces might drive Libra to seek sparring elsewhere. Libra is an air sign that thrives on clarity, and Pisces is a dream within a dream, always a bit of an enigma, even to itself.

For the longterm, this is a couple that keep the romance alive. They both like to mark holidays and anniversaries, and neither shows up without love offerings in hand. The sharing of traits creates a nice balance. Libra helps Pisces find the words for their delicate thoughts. Pisces leads Libra into spiritual realms, where their understanding gains nuance. Libra champions the multi-dimensional talents of the Fishes, and encourages them to share it with others. When both are generous with their gifts, a sense of devotion goes far in overcoming their built-in differences.
