When Scorpio and Pisces come together for love or any kind of relationship, it’s mystical, creative and exhilarating! But these two secretive signs may also live double lives, which will require a raw honesty and vulnerability if this relationship is to thrive. A Scorpio-Pisces relationship is magnetic, since you both understand each others’ need for intimate, soul-stirring connections.
Scorpio and Pisces: Your compatibility clicks and clashes
Where you click:
Drama! Intrigue! Espionage! Marriage? Your attraction becomes an addiction quickly, although not necessarily an unhealthy one. The twelve-steppers have a saying that applies well to your union: you’re only as sick as your secrets. Although you may live together for years, it’s shockingly easy for you both to bury your heads in the sand…or worse yet, hide double lives from each other. Instead of opening up about your fears or insecurities, you can easily escape into your shared interests—and these will be plentiful. You are both capable of becoming powerful healers, mystics, and creative geniuses, but the success of your union requires a naked honesty that you’ll each find exhilarating and terrifying. On the other side of that rainbow is a pot of gold: You’re capable of creating a gorgeous home together, filled with pets and even a genius kid or two.
Where you clash:
Both Pisces and Scorpio have a sneaky streak which may intensify when you fall for one another. Should you form any sort of a “don’t ask, don’t tell” pact, your relationship is basically doomed. Confess your so-called sins quickly and your relationship can reach the depths of intimacy while elevating you both into an inspiring state of high consciousness.
Scorpio and Pisces are both water signs
Into the depths you go! Two highly sensitive and perceptive water signs can get VERY comfortable with each other—and fast. You could go from dating to renting a U-Haul in short order, especially if you meet each other’s parents and families and earn the seal of approval. Home is everything to the water sign. Your solitude-seeking souls need to retreat to a private and intimate hub after being out in the wider world. You could host the holidays, rent the beach house where everyone communes, have kids crawling out of every nook. A water sign home is likely to feature cozily-appointed guest bedrooms and lots of spare pillows and blankets. Your nostalgic signs both cherish family and tradition. Since you don’t trust easily, you may have a small, tight-knit circle of friends that you keep for life. If you open a business together, you’ll create a “family” vibe at the office. (And yes, they’ll be secretly subject to loyalty tests.)
While it’s nice to feel so safe together, comfort has its limits. If you wrap yourselves too tightly in this security blanket, it can smother you.
While it’s nice to feel so safe together, comfort has its limits. If you wrap yourselves too tightly in this security blanket, it can smother you. A water sign relationship can devolve into a parent-child dynamic (complete with baby talk and cloyingly cutesy nicknames) and self-destructive indulgence in food, drink and self-soothing activities like shopping. You can get TOO deep “in your feelings,” stirring up a tsunami of emotions that can spiral into rage and even abuse if you aren’t careful. Your powerful moods may overlap or spiral out of control if not managed. Although water can be placid and beautiful, it can actually do great damage. To avoid creating a hurricane, you’ll both need to talk to a therapist or a grounded friend before unleashing your anger, resentment or jealousy on each other. Water that doesn’t move can become stagnant and toxic—and a water-sign couple may become possessive and fearful of change to their own detriment.
There are four elements in astrology: fire, earth, air and water. Each one plays an important role in the greater whole of humankind. Mating with someone from the same element offers the comfort of familiarity. At last, you don’t have to explain yourself all the time! You both operate at similar speeds to a certain degree. As lovely as that is, it can also be “too much of a good thing,” causing your relationship to feel like a single track on continuous replay. After all, differences can be challenging in a good way because they push you both to grow. As a same-element couple, you may need to make a conscious effort to not get stuck in a rut or even a competitive dynamic. Spending time with friends, coworkers or relatives of another element can introduce a more balancing energy. For example, a lighthearted air sign can get you to laugh at yourselves and an adventurous fire sign will encourage you to take more risks.
Scorpio is fixed and Pisces is mutable
In astrology, the “qualities” or “triplicities” reveal the role you play in a relationship or collaboration. Are you a starter, a doer or a finisher? Do you like to take charge and have a plan, or do you prefer to go with the flow? In this love match, it can be hard to get in sync. Can we make a plan around here? Fixed signs crave stability and mutable signs love change. Compromise is key so you don’t drive each other crazy! The fixed sign in this relationship likes to make a decision or plan and stick with it. By contrast, the ever-changing mutable sign is always changing things—adding one more guest, jamming one more coffee date into their day, starting another project before they finish the 50 they already have going. When a mutable-fixed duo plays to their strength, the fixed sign can create a solid structure that upholds the mutable sign’s creative plans. Adaptable mutable signs help the fixed sign to be less rigid—to loosen up and go with the flow. For long-term success, the mutable mate will have to work harder at keeping their word, showing up on time and being consistent. Some plans are simply non-negotiable! In exchange the fixed sign will have to give an inch and be willing to try new things.
Scorpio and Pisces are both yin, or feminine, signs
In astrology, every sign has a “polarity”: you’re either yin (feminine) or yang (masculine). You are both yin signs: receptive, sensitive and intuitive. When all is good, you are deeply simpatico, nurturing one another and sharing romantic, thoughtful gestures. The downside? Your fluctuating moods may collide, causing dramatic fights that can escalate into an unnecessary cold war. You can also get SO tuned into each other’s emotions that your bond turns codependent. While it’s lovely to build a cozy cocoon, make sure you don’t get stuck in that bubble and stunt each other’s personal growth.
Scorpio and Pisces are trine (four signs apart)
In astrology love matches, we also measure compatibility by the aspect, or distance, between the two signs. Your signs are trine, or four signs apart. In this love match, it can feel like “home sweet home” The trine sign mate has the same element as yours (fire, earth, air or water), creating an unspoken kinship and harmony. At last—you don’t have to constantly explain yourself. You’ve never felt so comfortable, so understood on a core level. This is the person you can burp and pass gas around, or use the bathroom with the door open when they’re home. But don’t invest in a wardrobe full of elastic waistbands just yet. In trine relationships, you’ll need to preserve some mystery to keep things exciting. Make sure you stay active and on the go, and don’t do everything together. A little autonomy goes a long way to keep the passion alive.
