If you're looking to find the ideal Pisces love match, there are several important factors that influence such compatibility within the zodiac. Pisces is a dreamer, heavily influenced by fantasy, the arts, and simple pleasures. His perfect matches share these qualities, but can also provide a stabilizing, grounding influence for him so both people in the relationship can thrive.
Attractive Personality Traits
Pisces is a dreamy fantasy-oriented sign. Though a Pisces is not usually rooted in reality or bound by rationality, they are exceptionally intuitive and frequently catch the small uncanny signals in life. Qualities which attract and match well with Pisces are:
- Awareness and intuition
- A poetic nature
- Artist vision and creativity
- A focus on what could be, as opposed to what is or what should be
- An open mind and a broad catalog of interests
- A kind and gentle disposition
Pisces does not exist to solve the world's problems, but seeks to empathize with those who suffer. He is not a perfectionist or even a hard worker by nature, but a Pisces can provide a means of emotional escape for those who are over-worked and over-wrought. This sign will either seek out or be sought by those who need more depth and fantasy in their lives.
Possible Pisces Love Matches
Some astrologers surmise that ideal compatibility is found in the the zodiac opposite of the sign in question. However, experience also emphasizes the compatibility of signs within their own element. As a water sign, Pisces generally does well with other water signs as well as earth signs. The grounding and practical nature of the earth element helps balance Pisces' whimsical emotional state. A chart-dominant Pisces never does well with chart-dominant air or fire personalities because the emotional condition of a Pisces craves understanding and a firm foundation. Fire signs are too aggressive, while air signs are too difficult to pin down intellectually. The following signs make the best overall love match for Pisces.
These two water signs will find that they have plenty in common and experience a strong bond right from the beginning. Cancer gravitates towards Pisces' artistic and sometimes mysterious nature, while Pisces truly appreciates Cancer's sympathetic personality. Cancer is the great domestic and nurturer of the zodiac. Pisces loves to be mothered and emotionally engaged, particularly because Pisces is a sign that lacks inner structure.
Scorpio is intense and profound. This fixed water sign will fascinate Pisces endlessly. There is an intense attraction here, as well as a general sense of well being when they're together. If the world was solely made up of emotions this would be a perfect pair. However, the world does contain errands and bills that need attention, and it's in this area that the first cracks begin to show. Even so, if both partners are willing to bend a little this can be a wonderful and mutually satisfying relationship. Scorpio is the dominant sign in this pairing and can grant Pisces the leadership and stability that he so requires.
The zodiac opposite of Pisces is Virgo. Virgo shares the same quadruplicity as Pisces in that they are both mutable signs. Virgo's ability to adapt can help this sign understand and express patience with Pisces' emotional curiosities. Moreover, both Pisces' and Virgos are said to be good communicators; this is vital to handling highly fluctuating emotional climates. Processing change through communication can make life transitions markedly easier. Virgo is a very busy and exacting sign. The productivity of this earth sign can supply Pisces with good conversation as well as a progressive environment.
The combination of Pisces paired with Pisces, much like the sign itself, can be one of extremes; these two might feel they've made a soulmate connection since they both seem to understand each other's emotional nature. On the other hand, it can also be a case of familiarity breeds contempt, in which the pair begins to drift from one another.
Pisces would do well with a Taurus; a sign that is defined by its grounding and stable nature. However, as a fixed quadruplicity, Taurus may be a little too grounding for the highly adaptable Pisces. Pisces loves change and loves to feel and experience every emotional aspect of change in life. Thus, Taurus may be stifling.
Capricorn, the cardinal earth sign, is also a stabling personality for Pisces. Still, as a strong serious type, Capricorn may be overcome by Pisces' capricious nature and become exhausted by this match.
The Need for Understanding
Regardless of elements and planetary placement, Pisces is a sign that needs to be understood. With intuition as his governing strength, too much push and not enough yield will collapse a Pisces very quickly. Pisceans tend to increase the aesthetic and empathetic qualities of their environment and individuals with an artist temperament will appreciate the affect this sign has upon the world. For this reason, those who are essentially in tune with the water element tend to mesh best with the sensitivities of Pisces.
