A Water and Air sign is a combination that often results in a clashing of the minds and emotions. On one side, you have a compassionate, intuitive, and wise Water sign, which is friendly but also wears their heart on their sleeve.
On the other side, you have a diplomatic Air sign that is gracious, fair, and non-confrontational. These people do not like being alone; they long for close partnerships with their loved ones, and they want someone in their life who is exactly like they are. Unfortunately, that’s not always easy to find.
The good news about Pisces and Libra compatibility is that both of these signs are relatively soft-spoken; they’re calm, quiet, and collected, and those are traits that they look for in their partners. These two don’t like signs like Aries or Leo because they’re too boisterous and loud all the time. Let’s see if we can find the perfect union between Water and Air in this relationship.
Pisces and Libra Sex and Intimacy
The Air and Water signs never have anything in common when it comes to the bedroom, but that doesn’t mean they can’t find a way to make it work. Venus rules over Libra and is exalted in Pisces, which means that a touch between these two is extra powerful, and it connects at a deeper level.
Because of this, they’ll likely find sexual satisfaction in their partner. They’re both selfless lovers, and they enjoy ensuring that the other person is happy. They care more about that than they do about their own pleasure.
One thing that always works between these two is their ability to be sensual, tender, and loving with their touch. Both Pisces and Libra are gentle lovers; they enjoy taking it slowly, building up suspense, teasing, and exploring their partner’s body.
They love it when their partner does it to them as well. While they might have different sexual preferences, they give the other person enough time to explore and figure out what those are. As a result of exploration, the two might even find things they never thought they’d enjoy.
Libra is looking for someone stable, passionate, and strong, while Pisces wants someone gentle and compassionate. The main issue they encounter sexually stems from Libra’s desire to jump right in and get started. Pisces take more time to warm up and isn’t the typical sign to get into a sexually-charged relationship too quickly.
Pisces and Libra Trust
Libra struggles tremendously with self-confidence and constantly needs someone to light the path for them. This Air sign doesn’t have the confidence to do anything on their own, and while this doesn’t always speak to their ability to be trusted, Pisces finds it a bit strange. Everywhere Libra goes, they need to be accepted by everyone, loved, and treated nicely; otherwise, Libra will spiral into an anxiety-driven outburst (in private, of course), and the only one around to hear it will be Pisces.
This issue can become exhausting for Pisces, and it can lead them to start running around behind Libra’s back. Pisces is naturally flirty and childish so Libra will start to question their intentions. This type of behavior will only make Libra’s confidence fall even further until the relationship is broken beyond repair.
These two must establish clear boundaries early on in their relationship, and it can also help if either person has some experience.
If both people involved in this relationship have never had a serious one before, they’re going to do a lot of learning and likely have to implement what they’ve learned with their next partner because this one won’t work out.
Pisces and Libra Communication
Trust and communication typically go hand-in-hand, so if you don’t have trust, you’re not likely to have communication. That applies here as well. Libra enjoys how optimistic and positive Pisces is all the time but can never seem to jump aboard and cherish those feelings themselves.
Where their communication takes a downturn is the constant desire to “help” their partner. Libra thinks that Pisces would be so much happier if they do this or that and Pisces feels the same way about Libra. They’re constantly trying to “fix” their partner when in reality, they don’t care at all about them. The only thing they are trying to fix is the incompatibility of their behaviors.
Sometimes trying to make your partner act or look a certain way comes off as disrespectful, and this will hurt the fragile Libra the most. Libra needs someone to boost their morale and make them feel more confident, but Pisces spends more time tearing them down and picking apart their personality to try and make them “happier” because they think they know best.
They can win this battle as long as they don’t come off as condescending, and instead of trying to “change” their partner, they try to ignore their differences and capitalize on their similarities.
Pisces and Libra Emotions
We’ve made it clear that this relationship is built on strong emotions, and because of that, there’s a lot of emotions to nurture or break down in this union. Venus, in the sign of Pisces, is responsible for this, and the everlasting love that awaits these two is possible, but they need to overcome their egos and get past their differences.
The biggest hindrance to their success is their inability to get over “changing” their partner. They’ll end up hurting each other, breaking down their partner’s confidence, and tearing apart what could be a good relationship because they can’t accept that they’re different.
If they can get past this by nurturing the individuality each of them possesses, they might get to a point where they interact on a deep emotional level. Remember, both Pisces and Libra are highly emotional signs, so they’ll love each other hard once they reach that point. When they realize they’ve found true love, they’ll love unlike any other.
Sometimes, these feelings can occur at different times. Libra can rush into love and feel so strongly for Pisces that it can scare Pisces away. If this happens, chances are the relationship won’t end on a bad note, but it will still end.
Pisces and Libra Values
Both of these signs value love, and they’ll connect over that initially. Although we’ve talked a lot about how they want to change each other, it’s not in a harmful way. It’s a big misunderstanding because both of these signs share high moral values. They would never intend to intentionally hurt their partner; it just so happens to be a major part of their personality.
The key is for them to know how to show their values to each other because they’re so good at showing them to others. If they can give their partner the same level of attention and care they give others, they’ll succeed.
Libra values stability and consistency. This Air sign does not like change, but Pisces embraces it. Pisces prefer to follow their hearts over their minds. When these two can find a way to marry those two outlooks on life together, magic will happen.
Pisces and Libra Together
When it comes to shared activities, whether for work or play, Libra’s indecisive nature will quickly get on Pisces’ nerves. Pisces prefers to pick a path and go at it with their heart. Libra will stand back and mull it over, weigh the pros and cons, ask someone for their opinion, go back to the drawing board, and so on. This drives Pisces nuts.
Libra’s indecisive nature will make it hard on Pisces because it will cause this zodiac sign to start questioning their decisions as well.
That said, when they do eventually decide on something, they can usually find a way to make it work. The two should enjoy things in the arts, such as music, theatre, or fine art. But, we can’t help but wonder if they’ll even make it to the activity because they’ll be too busy deciding on what to do and where to go.
For this relationship to succeed, they need to let their partner take the lead once in a while. Sometimes, partnerships are meant to be dynamic and even if it’s not what you would do, let your partner take control because it’s fair. These two will rarely compromise on anything, so they’ll have to let the other person sink or swim on their own.
The most important thing is to not gloat or make comments about a poor decision you let slide by. If you end up falling into a trap as the result of your partner’s choices, get up, brush yourself off, and move on.
While Libra and Pisces are both exalted in Venus, they have their unique way of handling it. They’ll have trouble early in the relationship because they won’t be able to get past their desire to change their partner. They’ll constantly try to “improve” them claiming that they’re trying to make their partner happy when it‘s really all about them.
Then, Libra’s lack of self-confidence will quickly lead to trust issues, and Pisces won’t want to feel so tied down that it can lead the Water sign to seek excitement elsewhere.
Saving this relationship may take some work, but if they can find interest in satisfying their partner both physically and emotionally, this partnership might have a chance.
