Pisces: character traits
As the last sign of the zodiac, Pisces (February 20 to March 20) is known to shoulder the emotional burden of all the zodiac signs that precede it. Ruled by the planet Neptune, Pisces’ ability to feel, imagine, and create is profound.
Having a Pisces friend or partner is a lot like having an on-call therapist: a Pisces will relentlessly listen to your problems as an observer, never judging and offering advice. But a Pisces can sometimes lose focus on the conversation, not because they don’t care, but because they’re daydreaming! Pisces often dream of possibilities and realities beyond the present moment.
Because Pisces are incredibly sensitive, they can sometimes detach from the here and now to deal with the feelings they are enduring. When they really feel the need to create distance between their compassionate heart and some of life’s more difficult aspects, Pisces may turn to various not-so-healthy forms of escape. To be the best version of themselves, Pisces must be able to stay anchored on a solid base, even if they allow themselves to dream.
High compatibility with Pisces: Taurus, Cancer, Scorpio and Capricorn
Pisces and Taurus
Taurus and Pisces are well suited to domestic happiness, sharing sensuality, creativity and enthusiasm for intellectual discussions. They will be able to spend hours at home, creating, decorating,…
Taurus also provides Pisces with the foundation they desperately need. A Taurus isn’t afraid to be practical, which can help a Pisces live life. Plus, Pisces’ gentle nature can help Taurus feel comfortable stepping out of their routine and enjoying new things. Although they don’t share all the personality traits, this couple balances out very well.
Pisces and Cancer
Cancer and Pisces find the attention and compassion they both need in their partner. As empathetic signs, however, these two can take on each other’s emotional burden…which is a good thing! Oftentimes, Pisces can feel like they’re carrying the weight of the world on their shoulders, but Cancerians are willing and able to lighten their emotional load.
In fact, Pisces and Cancer shine when they make meaningful connections with others. A Pisces-Cancer couple can spend their lives offering their well-known hospitality to friends and family and bonding with pleasure to make others feel right at home. The shared values of kindness and generosity make this duo a couple destined for success.
Pisces and Scorpio
Both Scorpio and Pisces are highly spiritual. These two partners will connect deeply through their dedication to nurturing a rich inner life. Pisces and Scorpio will recognize each other’s sensitive side and be willing to create space for both partners to safely express their emotions.
The other thing these signs have in common? Value emotional honesty. Scorpios and Pisces want their partners to be open and honest with them. Having faith that the other partner will love them unconditionally and choosing to be honest with feelings is the Pisces-Scorpio couple’s recipe for happiness.
Pisces and Capricorn
Capricorn and Pisces have very different habits and seem complete opposites, but their common interests can bring them together in a strong and respectful relationship. While Capricorn is a conformist and Pisces a rebellious dreamer, these two partners connect over their desire to see and experience new cultures, places, and ideas. They want to live big, and thanks to this, they can be perfectly suited for each other.
Their opposing skills can make these star signs seem like missing pieces in everyone’s puzzles. A Capricorn will work tirelessly to help a Pisces sketch out the details of their creative vision, and a Pisces will bring much-needed spontaneity and creative energy to a Capricorn’s structured reality. Both of these signs are well-suited to growing and learning together in a long-term relationship.
Average compatibility with Pisces: Pisces, Leo, Virgo and Libra
Pisces and Pisces
Pisces partners like to help each other. In fact, they may even argue over who is going to take care of the other. Where things get complicated is in the area of communication. Pisces struggle to be simple about how they feel, especially when they’re upset. This dynamic can result in two people feeling irritated by big feelings. Miscommunication and hurt feelings can happen, unless the two Pisces can come together and be honest about their emotions – which will lead to stronger intimacy.
Pisces and Leo
A Leo and a Pisces complement each other well. A Leo’s ability to take matters into their own hands can offset the Pisces character. The latter’s inventiveness can inspire Leo’s creative process. In this couple, the Leo is not afraid to take the lead … which can generate a lot of pressure for the Pisces, who prefers to go with the flow.
Leo and Pisces tend to lash out when they feel threatened, and can get hurtful to avoid being vulnerable. For this pairing to work, the partners need to take the reins from time to time, and Pisces needs to work on their insecurities in a healthy way.
Pisces and Virgo
Pisces and Virgos connect through their desire to help others. Like two sides of the same coin, Virgo identifies problems, while Pisces offers empathy and a listening ear. Together, this duo does a great job of making the people around them feel loved.
But Virgo and Pisces are afraid of being judged, which can lead to both partners keeping their thoughts and feelings quiet. This is especially true if Virgo’s perfectionism becomes too pronounced. In this case Pisces can hide his mistakes and make Virgo aggressive. If both partners can communicate with love and understanding, they can form a strong bond.
Pisces and Libra
Libra and Pisces have the makings for a fairytale romance. These two partners love to spend their time reveling in the beauties and mysteries of life. Pisces and Libra will share about music, art, and above all, the beauty they see in each other.
However, these astrological signs must be careful not to keep their feet on the ground. When they come back to reality, things can start to get complicated. Both partners tend to close off in the face of chaos and can sink into obsessive restlessness. Staying grounded is the key to their development.
Weak compatibility with Pisces: Aries, Gemini, Sagittarius and Aquarius
Pisces and Aries
While Pisces and Aries can balance out some of each other’s strengths and weaknesses, these two signs have radically different dispositions that can cause conflict. The boldness of Aries can intimidate Pisces and dissuade them from opening up about their needs and desires. On the other hand, the unpredictable emotions of Pisces can be frustrating for Aries, who will have a hard time keeping up with their moods.
Ultimately, these star signs struggle to open up, communicate clearly, and build trust, making the relationship difficult.
Pisces and Gemini
Gemini tend to be emotionally distant, which can make Pisces insecure. Pisces want emotional vulnerability from their partner, so it’s hard for them if they feel like they can’t connect!
Also, Pisces and Gemini are sensitive to sudden mood swings. This can make both partners feel like they’re being duped, leading to resentment and dissatisfaction. The best thing to do is to be honest and acknowledge the wrongdoings in the relationship if they want it to work.
Pisces and Sagittarius
Sagittarius and Pisces are practically polar opposites. While Pisces is sensitive and tender, Sagittarius isn’t particularly concerned with how other people feel. When conflict arises, Sagittarius can build up more brutal honesty than a Pisces can handle, then roll their eyes when the Pisces’ feelings are (understandably) hurt.
For this couple to have a chance, both signs must be willing to resist some of their core behaviors so that the other feels understood and loved.
Pisces and Aquarius
Pisces and Aquarius share a passion for helping others. If a Pisces-Aquarius duo doesn’t have a common vision for social action, that pair has trouble functioning. Pisces’ emotional complexity may take more effort to decode. Aquarius’ stoicism can make Pisces feel isolated.
Unfortunately, the problems don’t end there. Aquarius’ tendency to avoid intimacy forces Pisces to shut down. This emotional distance can create a deep fissure in an Aquarius-Pisces relationship.
