Pisces and Scorpio understand one another intimately. Both water signs, they are two of the most emotional signs in the zodiac, and they both know what it is like to be overwhelmed by feelings. This is a strongly intuitive relationship, founded on a base of these shared emotional strengths. Crucially, however, because the relationship is so intense, both partners also need time away from it. Pisces and Scorpio compatibility is blessed with a mutual understanding which really helps here. Both partners understand the other’s need for occasional solitude, and neither will take it personally. Pisces accepts Scorpio’s need for solitary, secretive time, and Scorpio definitely “gets” Pisces need to escape into a fantasy.
Scorpio is one of the most passionate signs in the zodiac, and Pisces is one of the most romantic. When this couple gets together, there is an immediate sexual attraction, and an enduring magnetism. Both are given to extreme highs and lows, mind, so this relationship doesn’t seem to have any middle ground. The couple are either blissfully, passionately, intoxicatingly in love….or engaged in all out, spiteful, damaging war. They’re never just “OK”. Veering from one end of the spectrum to the other is exhausting for both Pisces and Scorpio; compatibility between the two, however is heightened again because of this shared way of reacting to the world.
At home, this couple will create an unbeatable and atmospheric partnership, no doubt infused with a certain degree of otherworldly, mystical, hard to put your finger on spirituality. Gentle Pisces, the archetypal Dreamer, brings softness and kindness to the harsher edges of Scorpio, the mythical Sorcerer. In return, Scorpio provides strength and stability for Pisces, and can help Pisces focus on their goals and ambitions. Scorpio is a fixed sign, and will be the one thing Pisces can rely upon; Pisces on the other hand, is a mutable sign, and will fit in beautifully and happily with Scorpio’s deeper wishes and choices. Pisces and Scorpio compatibility works well in this regard, because Scorpio wants to the leader and Pisces likes to follow.
There are one or two possible issues which could cloud this otherwise delightful partnership. The all-controlling Sorcerer likes to keep his or her lovers close, but Pisces is elusive, and hard to pin down. If Scorpio jealousy rears its ugly head, Pisces can be suffocated. Holding on far too tight is always a problem for Scorpio, and Pisces compatibility with the Sorcerer runs into problems when Scorpio cannot let go. The zodiac’s Dreamer might also find it hard to cope with the darker side of Scorpio. When lust, power struggles, revenge and scheming are on the agenda, Pisces can easily be harmed by all that negativity, and dragged into emotions they will find it hard to escape from.
Aside from possibly harming one another emotionally, this couple might also find themselves up against a very tough world. Because both signs are water signs and completely led by their emotions, it will be difficult for them to find objectivity when life gets difficult for whatever reason. They can easily send one another deeper and deeper into spirals of despair – hopefully, one or both partners will have some earth or air influences elsewhere in their chart to counteract this possibility. Otherwise, there is always the danger that Pisces and Scorpio compatibility, beautiful though it is, will let both partners down just when they need one another the most.
Overall, however, this is a highly positive astrology compatibility match, and potentially one of the strongest and most enduring relationships of all. Trust is a big issue for Scorpio, and Pisces compatibility is easily abused too, so both of these signs will find in one another someone they can rely upon. Fiercely loyal to one another and protective of the magic they have created together, you’ll be hard pressed to find a couple more devoted than Pisces and Scorpio. Compatibility at its romantic best, perhaps?
