Libra and Pisces are fancy love birds that—when they're ready—mate for life.

What appeals to Pisces is the off-beat or even eccentric. Pisces loves a mystery and will put out intuitive feelers to Libra's layers. If Libra's got soul as well as charm, Pisces is impressed. It's better not to overtalk the seduction with Pisces. Libra will want to listen— to body language and subtle cues rather than conversation.

Libra is intrigued by Pisces' imaginative mind and hangs on every word. Pisces feels safe in Libra's balance-seeking style.

Libra in Love is attentive, socially light, and gives great feedback. Pisces in Love is impressionable, a subjective thinker, and prone to idealize the lover. 

This pairing benefits from honesty and being real, with character flaws. Libra and Pisces will learn whether they've fallen in love with a dream or something that withstands day-to-day living.

Culture Over Chaos

First dates might include culture, an art walk or performance. Pisces likes atmosphere; Libra comes alive in artful places. Go for calm and intimate over chaotic and crowded. Take time over unhurried meals, perhaps ones you've made yourself. They soon sense the romantic in the other and fall head over heels.

Pisces is the enigma of the Zodiac and might surprise Libra with sultry sexuality. Pisces has many masks and each time you meet can reveal another "self." What's consistent is kindness.

Libra is Venus ruled, and Pisces is ruled by Neptune. A potential here is Neptunian love, a sense of a divine hand in the union. The lovers might explore erotic arts, like Tantra. Both have strong libidos, though they can run hot and cold.

Waves Might Be Rough

At times, Libra and Pisces float dreamily along the river of life, but sometimes the love vessel is without a rudder. More than other signs, Libra uses the "other" as a gauge for its own identity.

Life with Pisces can become a fun house of distorted mirrors, and Libra can lose a sense of self. Both signs wear many masks and take on traits they think others want or need.

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.

As a cardinal sign, Libra is often the provocateur. This can become relentless if a dark side Libra is chronically dissatisfied with Pisces. Libra tries to prod Pisces to step up, which only makes the Fishes swim 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 an enigma, even to itself.

For the long term, this couple keeps the romance alive. They both like to mark holidays and anniversaries, and neither shows up without love offerings.

Pisces leads Libra into spiritual realms, where their understanding gains nuance. Libra champions the Fishes' multidimensional talents and encourages sharing them with others. When both are generous with their gifts, a sense of devotion goes far in overcoming differences.
