Aquarius and Pisces compatibility is an intriguing combination of “what might be”. The zodiac’s Visionary and Dreamer share a dissatisfaction with the world as it is, and both seek in their own way to make things better, so this can be a fascinating love match with serious potential for good.

Cool, aloof and rather detached Aquarius operates on a very different emotional level to sensitive, emotion filled Pisces, but both share a kindness and a compassion which sets them apart from other signs. In order for Aquarius and Pisces compatibility to thrive, these two partners will need to meet in the middle of the emotional range, but if they can do that, the potential is huge.
Aquarius is ruled by unpredictable Uranus, and Pisces is ruled by mystical Neptune, so together this couple can create a very special kind of mystery and magic. The Pisces partner can help to put Aquarius more in touch with their intuition, while the Aquarius partner can provide airy wings to lift Pisces out of the whirlpool of feelings which so often threatens to engulf him or her. They share a karmic link and a sense of purpose in caring for others – the good news for Aquarius and Pisces compatibility being that they’re rather good at caring for each other, too.
As an air sign, however, Aquarius needs to be careful not to create a tropical storm over Pisces’s already swirling waters. Pisces, for his or her part, must be sure not to be too needy or clingy towards Aquarius, because if there’s one thing guaranteed to turn off an Aquarius it’s someone wanting more commitment than they feel ready to give. Given time and some mutual understanding, however, true love can definitely blossom here. Aquarius and Pisces compatibility can be very healthy and good for both partners, because each understands what the other needs. Aquarius, in applying logic to Pisces’ emotions will be careful not to do so in a hurtful way, and Pisces, in urging Aquarius to feel rather than think, is sensitive enough not to scare away the free thinker of the zodiac.
Taking care of the everyday details of life isn’t all that easy for this couple, as neither are particularly practical people, but the home they create together will be filled with love, inspiration and kindness. Aquarius and Pisces compatibility is enhanced by the fact that these two agree on the important points of a relationship, such as parenting, family finances and priorities, so opportunities to squabble are limited. When they do argue, they are saved by an ability to talk it out – at least, until Pisces has enough and retreats into his or her own world. Here, Aquarius persistence (as a fixed sign) is often enough to coax Pisces back into the discussion and a resolution can be found. This persistence is important for Pisces, and Aquarius compatibility fortunately provides it.
Most of the romance in this partnership will come from gentle, loving Pisces, so Aquarius must learnt to reciprocate, at least to some degree, if Pisces isn’t to feel unappreciated. Oddly, although Aquarius is supremely dispassionate, the Aquarius partner tends to find Pisces emotions endearing rather than annoying – ever open minded, perhaps, Aquarius recognises that he or she has something to learn from the Dreamer, even when said Dreamer is finding it hard to put their sea of feelings into words. Pisces and Aquarius compatibility is born of an understanding the two signs have for one another which each of them struggles to find with another sign of that element. With the possible exception of Pisces and Libra, this is probably the most compatible air and water mix in the zodiac.
