What do Pisces and Libra have in common?
Can Pisces win over a Libra? Other than scales, what else do they have in common? Venus — the planet of love, art and relationships — is dignified in Libra and exalted in Pisces. The goddess is happy in both signs.
The Libra Woman
A woman with her Sun in Libra is — more than any other sign — attracted to partnership. Not being in one may make her unhappy, because she shines brightest when she is relating to another person. She’s willing to make all sorts of compromises to please her partner, and may even lapse into codependent behavior, putting his needs above her own. Many of her decisions are based on how their outcome will impact others, as she wants to maintain harmony with her loved ones. And, sometimes she goes to great lengths to avoid being seen as the “bad guy.”
[show_to accesslevel=’All-Access’]The Pisces Man
Sacrifice, of course, is familiar to the Pisces man. The last sign of the zodiac is ruled by Neptune, the planet that dissolves boundaries in the quest for enlightenment — or at least a good buzz. Pisces is the sign of the monk and the alcoholic — those lost (or developed) souls who choose retreat, or who withdraw into fantasy because they can’t tolerate reality well enough to function. The Pisces man’s romantic quest is to transcend separation and to love All That Is. He can reach this state through the help of meditation, drugs … or even a good old-fashioned relationship. But for him, a loving connection is a means to an End, a way to move from self to Self.
Unfortunately, all this spiritual talk is whimsy. More often than not, the Pisces man is more martyr than mystic, a spineless schlump who suffers on the cross of victimhood, hoping to evoke guilt and pity in others for his inability to do anything more useful than dream.
Put ‘Em Together
So, can these two get it on? Although they both worship at the altar of Love, they go about relating in different ways. Libra is more sociable than easily overstimulated Pisces, who prefers take-out sushi over frequent dinner parties. And Pisces may feel disappointed that Libra is more interested in putting on a Good Face than doing Good Works.
However, they do have a meeting ground. The Pisces man can win over Libra with Art. Although not mystically-inclined, she does have an eye for beauty, and can appreciate a well-designed table or a graceful ballad. One of Pisces’ greatest talents is his ability to draw on his Muse to create inspired songs, poems or paintings. His compositions express what cannot be articulated by words alone, and although they draw on emotions that are not her natural language, the Libra woman will get weak at the knees knowing that his song is about her.
