Otherworldly, super sensitive and romantic to a fault, Pisces and Pisces compatibility is a relationship which can go from one extreme to another at lightning speed. Pisces is the Dreamer of the zodiac, and this is a personality compatibility pairing which can either become a happily ever after or a total nightmare – and sometimes both.
Pisces is an extremely gentle and loving sign, with a huge heart and a great deal of empathy and compassion. When two Pisces people fall in love, there’s a sense of the ethereal and the mystical about their union, almost as though it was fated to be. Together, this couple can create their own reality, thriving on an atmosphere of intoxicating emotions and sailing together towards a romantic sunset, wrapped securely in one other’s arms. Pisces and Pisces compatibility can be the whole package, a tender love affair that the rest of us would envy. Or it can go horribly, disastrously, dangerously wrong.
The flaw in this idealistic partnership is that neither partner has a terrific hold on reality. Both are slightly anxious, slightly frightened, slightly intimidated by the big, bad, outside world, and both create a smokescreen or an illusion around themselves. When they’re together, they feel secure and the real Pisces steps forwards in both instances; at this point, Pisces and Pisces compatibility brings great happiness, and all is well. These two will never deliberately hurt one another, or be unfaithful – it’s not the other partner they should fear, but outside influences.
When trouble hits, as it must occasionally in every relationship, the instinct of both Pisces partners is to hide. Whether it’s lying, deceit, refusal to discuss or just plain elusiveness, neither will confront a problem head on. When tears start to fall, both these gentle souls will drive one another to further depths of despair, and unfortunately neither of them has a particularly good way of getting out of that cycle. For Pisces and Pisces compatibility to stay strong and healthy, one or both partners needs some earthy, common sense, rational input from elsewhere in their birth chart. Otherwise, although they will probably never fall out of love, these two star crossed lovers could literally drive one another to self-destruction, particularly if there are drugs or alcohol in the mix.
What we have here, then, is an exceptionally spiritual and beautiful partnership, but also a very vulnerable one. If someone – a parent in law, perhaps, a jealous sibling or an infuriated ex lover – decides to stir up trouble within the relationship, Pisces and Pisces compatibility is awfully powerless at dealing with it. They will love one another, they will care, they will weep, they will sink together rather than apart, but still sink they might if neither partner finds it within themselves to stop the rollercoaster and get off.
So there’s good news and bad. It’s beautiful, but it’s potentially tormented. As Pisces is a water sign, it’s hardly surprising that this couple’s personality compatibility is strong, because water signs recognise kindred spirits in one another – someone else who knows what it’s like to live in that whirlpool of emotions. Possibly the most empathetic of all of the zodiac signs, this mutual empathy leads to one of astrology’s most caring, nurturing and understanding partnerships.
Where this couple are fortunate, then – where real life flows smoothly for them, and where nobody tries to interfere – theirs can be an absolutely blissful union. Supremely sensitive and loving parents, together they can create a home where love comes first, last and always. Their greatest defence against the harsh realities of life is their joint ability to create this dream world that their Dreamer archetype so adeptly represents. How sad for Pisces and Pisces compatibility, therefore, that ultimately it could be these very illusions which also destroy this loving couple, when situations move beyond their control.
