Libra is ruled by the planet Venus and Pisces are ruled by the planet Neptune, which is associated with illusions, and a secondary influence afforded by Jupiter (which ruled Pisces prior to the discovery of Neptune).
These two Signs are quite compatible due to the feminine energies of both working in tandem. Under the influence of Neptune and lucky Jupiter, Pisces is intensely meditative, philosophical and internal. Under the rule of Venus, Libra is in love with love. In addition, Libra is connected with partnerships and always more comfortable when engaged in an intimate love affair.

Hence, these two Signs combine the head and the heart to solve all problems. It is usually a winning combination...the best decisions are made by employing both the emotions and the intellect. This tends to be an extremely flexible and progressive relationship. However, when problems occur, communication between Libra and Pisces is likely to break down and the Libra partner...who can at times be mentally manipulative...may give Pisces the "silent treatment." Within this union, there will always be an undercurrent of friction, but neither individual will ever truly be the leader.

Thus, Libra comes up with new ideas and starts new projects. The Pisces partner will be happy to go along with these, adopting any assigned role. If this couple should engage in any project other than their love affair, then they will certainly work well together.
Both are outwardly modest and while Libra is fond of a little recognition, Pisces will not mind taking the passenger seat. In addition, if Libra generates a new idea and then suddenly loses interest...as sometimes happens with those governed by this Sign...the Pisces partner will have no objection to also switching directions.
Perhaps the best aspect of a Libra and Pisces union is the mutual interest in helping individuals and the world in general. This is a couple who are well-matched in terms of enthusiasm, energy and desire for a sincere relationship...but at the end of the day, this partnership is not usually considered a favorable candidate for longevity.
In essence, this may prove to be a difficult match and this is particularly true under intimate circumstances. While the Pisces partner will be content with the exclusive company of Libra, the Libra individual's love of social affairs may generate jealousy and disharmony in the relationship.
It is inherent in the Libra character to get along well with many different types of people but Pisces tends to be much more discriminating...and both partners will need to watch that if this relationship is to stand a any chance of succeeding.
