Which Star Signs Should Pisces Date?



Which Star Signs does Pisces get along with most easily? What are the best – the worst – and the most intriguing – compatibility matches for Pisces? Which Star Signs should a Pisces man or woman date?

Pisces Compatibility

Because Pisces’ outstanding empathy gives it a unique talent for breaking down barriers, there’s probably no-one it can’t get along with if it tries hard enough. On the other hand, its extreme sensitivity means it’s not always the easiest of Star Signs to live with. For optimum compatibility, Pisces needs a partner who knows how to handle its puzzling mood swings and keep its demons safely at bay.

Signs Most Compatible With Pisces

As a Star Sign ruled by the Element of Water, the safest bet for a Pisces is probably one of the other two Water Signs, i.e. CANCER or SCORPIO. The favorable 120° – or 4 Signs – spacing between Zodiac Signs in the same Element makes for an especially harmonious relationship and a level of compatibility well above the norm.

Both Cancer and Scorpio are good compatibility matches for Pisces since they share Pisces’ high sensitivity and similarly intuitive approach to life. However, Cancer probably just beats Scorpio as the better compatibility choice for Pisces. Because Cancer has exactly the same emotional vulnerabilities as Pisces, it finds it relatively easier to sympathize with the Fish’s mood swings than the strong-willed, self-controlled Scorpion.

Really excellent too, in terms of their ability to harmonize with sensitive Pisces, while at the same time helping it to keep its feet on the ground, are the practical Earth Signs CAPRICORN and TAURUS, spaced by 60° – or next but one – from Pisces. Many believe this kind of Water-Earth combination is actually the ideal – and surely it’s no coincidence that a high proportion of successful compatibility matches are between people with birthdays two Zodiac Signs apart.

What About Another Pisces?

So what about another PISCES as a good compatibility match? On the plus side, you’ll definitely know what makes them tick, since they embody so many aspects of yourself. Especially with a Pisces of the opposite sex, the chances are you’ll be strongly attracted to their best Piscean qualities – like their gentleness, compassion and amazing creativity.

But because we don’t tend to like our bad points when we see them reflected in somebody else, there will also be things about Pisces people – most likely their moodiness and over-sensitivity – that you’ll positively hate! If so, better take a long hard look at yourself in the mirror!

Signs Least Compatible With Pisces

The truth is, Pisces, your ideal compatibility match will rarely simply be a clone of yourself (how boring would that be!). But neither, for that matter, should their Star Sign be too astrologically antagonistic to your own.

For this reason, you should be cautious – in the absence of redeeming features – about folk born under the Star Sign of GEMINI. Because Gemini is at a challenging 90° angle (or 3 Sign spacing) from Pisces, the differences between you may be so vast, the chances are these people will be too incompatible with you - and just too much hard work!

Of all the Star Signs, Gemini probably qualifies as the worst possible compatibility match for Pisces. Due to their extreme sensitivity and deep need for personal intimacy, Pisceans may find it harder than just about anyone else to cope with Gemini’s coolly unemotional – and at times rather cruelly over-logical – outlook.

There may also be lesser compatibility challenges with the Signs spaced at 150° (or 5 Signs) from Pisces, i.e. LEO and LIBRA. Although traditionally considered to be ‘awkward’, and involving Signs in conflicting Elements, 150° relationships aren’t necessarily quite as bad, however, as they might appear. Okay, these combinations may not be your first choice, but neither should they be your last. So don’t make the mistake of writing them off as unsuitable – in many cases a love match could work out fine!

Why Opposites Attract

Rather than someone who conflicts with you, Pisces, what you’re really looking for, from a Star Sign compatibility point of view, is the kind of person who is able to balance or complement you in some way. For this reason, the Sign diametrically opposite your own, i.e. VIRGO, can be a great compatibility match for you, Pisces.

Opposite Star Signs are often magnetically attracted to each other, their strong yin-yang polarity giving them the potential to complete each other like two halves of a perfect whole. When dating a Virgo, super-sensitive Pisces can benefit from its opposite Sign’s much more grounded, strictly common-sense approach. Pisces’s tendency to be a bit spacey and disorganized is less of a problem when it has practical, highly efficient Virgo by its side.

Neighboring Star Signs

Although Pisces is quite different from its immediate neighbors, AQUARIUS and ARIES, in reality it can relate quite well to – and frequently enjoys quite a good level of compatibility with – these Star Signs. This is because people whose Sun Sign is Pisces often have Mercury or Venus – which can never be far from the Sun – in the preceding or following Signs of Aquarius or Aries. Many Pisces-Aquarius or Pisces-Aries couples will therefore embody a number of each other’s characteristics and have far more in common than you might initially expect.

Pisces Compatibility ‘Wild Card’

Although not technically recognized as a good compatibility match for Pisces because of the challenging 90° angle, SAGITTARIUS is an intriguing ‘wild card’ partnership choice for the Fish. Respectively ruled, and co-ruled, by Jupiter – the planet of faith, hope and limitless possibilities – Sagittarius and Pisces are closely linked by their lofty ideals and common desire to make the world a better place. If these two can avoid bickering over their conflicting emotional needs and differing takes on issues of truthfulness and morality, they can have fun together making their dreams come true!

How Can Pisces Improve Their Compatibility?

To improve their chances of getting on better with every Star Sign, Pisces should focus on showing others less of their most annoying traits, i.e. their moodiness and over-sensitivity, and more of what's most endearing about them, i.e. their kindness and empathy. If you're a Pisces, in general everyone will find you easier to live with if you're a little less evasive, and a little more honest and willing to confront difficult situations rather than looking for an escape route. This will be particularly important in the case of Star Sign matches which present the biggest compatibility challenges for a Pisces, as detailed above.
