Libra and Pisces can be a challenging partnership to make work, and become particularly frustrating as you're both very considerate communicators, yet rarely see eye to eye.
These scores show the averages for data collected from my clients over the past 20 years. It's important to note however that individual relationships vary enormously. This is a summarized picture, a real compatibility reading is needed to judge a real relationship. It's also worth noting that Soulmates can be found in any sun sign match, even those which are statistically likely to have low compatibility.
This article is in two halves, the first is written from the viewpoint of the Libra man or Libra woman, and the second is written from the viewpoint of the Pisces man or Pisces woman.
In the early stages this is typically a very romantic match. You both take love seriously and enjoy a deep and meaningful connection with a partner. The main area of difficulty is that you both tend to do best with a partner who has a stronger personality, and is a little less idealistic than you are.
You both appreciate beauty and romance, and can be highly affectionate and sentimental. On the flip side you both can sometimes be a little self absorbed and indecisive.
Conversation may become a source of frustration, which may be initially surprising, as you are both flexible and considerate communicators. However, this can often be the weakest area in a Libra Pisces relationship.
You live more in your head, while your Pisces lives more in their heart. While this sounds like a trivial difference, your objective and analytical style will create difficulties in compromising with your emotional and intuitive Pisces, who often has opinions which don't stand up well to objective analysis.
In this respect compromises and disagreements may be frustrating for both of you. You can both also be fairly indecisive, which compounds this situation.
You're more down to earth and practical than your partner, and likely to be in control of many day to day areas of the relationship. Your Pisces is likely to be very flexible and quite okay with this. You on the other hand may not want such a dominant role all the time, particularly if it results in your partner considering you as too tough or insensitive.
You're very sociable, while your Pisces is likely to be far more introverted. There may be disagreements over whether to go out or stay in. You need plenty of people contact, whereas your Pisces is more likely to enjoy the peace and tranquility of the home, needing a lot of time to recharge. You may find them highly reclusive, in which case don't take it personally - they're escaping from the world, and not you.
Similarly, you probably enjoy looking your best at all times, keeping abreast of fashion while maintaining a large wardrobe. Meanwhile your Pisces is likely not to take much notice of such things, and may consider you overly gregarious or superficial in this direction.
Overall you may find this partner a little too needy or vulnerable, and perhaps not quite sophisticated enough for your taste. Your Pisces is likely to be far more sensitive than you, which you may also find draining in the long term
If you can both adapt to the others style this is a relationship which will improve steadily over time, and eventually rival any other match. The low scores then represent a high initial challenge, and not a long term pessimistic view.
The chemistry here is likely to be good, and you both enjoy a romantic and sophisticated approach to lovemaking.
It's likely you will need to take the lead often, which you may not enjoy. Emotionally, you may find your partner takes sex a little too seriously, while you tend to be more fun loving in the bedroom.
It's important to note however that we're looking only at sun signs here. There are many other planets which can have an equal or greater effect on someone's personality. Makes sense, as ultimately everyone is of course unique. Generalizing too far based just on sun signs can therefore be misleading.
To fully understand someone or how compatible you are with them we need to calculate those other planet placements from their date of birth, and compare them to your own, and then interpret the results.
This unlocks the real power of astrology, and gives much more useful and specific information: everything from how they view you, how to turn them on, how to avoid arguments with them etc. If you would like to explore this further please see the compatibility readings page.

The problem in this area is that you judge with your heart, while your Libra is much more objective and analytical. While this sounds like a trivial difference, it often creates difficulties in compromising as your emotional and intuitive decisions may not stand up well to objective analysis. Your Libra has much more difficulty trusting their emotions to make decisions.
In this respect compromises and disagreements may be frustrating for both of you. You may feel your partner over analyses everything, while they may think you rely too much on your intuition. You can both be indecisive at times, which compounds this situation.
You're likely to find that your Libra isn't as sensitive as you, and may at times find them somewhat cold, uncaring or superficial by your standards.
Your Libra is a classy and sophisticated partner, often enjoying fashion and keeping an extensive wardrobe. Meanwhile you're likely to be far less interested in such things, possibly finding the unnecessary competition for social status to be highly superficial and overly gregarious.
Along similar lines, your Libra is likely to prefer a very busy social life, while you often need space and alone time to recharge. There may be disagreements over whether to go out or stay in, until you come to understand each other and compromise in this area.
Chemistry here will be good, however as in other areas you may want a deeper level of emotional connection than your fun and light hearted Libra needs.
You're both very romantic however, and compromise in this area is certainly possible. In the longer term you may prefer a slightly more bold or domineering partner than your Libra, while they may find you a little too emotionally demanding.
Overall this can be a challenging relationship to make work, but it's definately possible if you both want it enough and are prepared to take the time to understand your partners needs and viewpoint.
