When Pisces and Pisces come together for love or any kind of relationship, it’s creative but also highly emotional! These two sensitive souls crave romance and indulgences, which can often lead to a codependent dynamic. A Pisces-Pisces relationship is deeply healing, since you both understand each others’ need for conscious connection.
Pisces and Pisces: Your compatibility clicks and clashes
Where you click:
Poetic and passionate, the depths of intimacy can be reached in a Pisces and Pisces relationship. Some days, you’ll plunge to the bottom of the emotion ocean, others’ you’ll float on a gentle current. With your shared creative genius, you’ll have found an ever-inspiring muse in one another, and your home could quickly turn into an artist’s studio space. The unspoken connection you two psychic soulmates share can be deeply healing or deeply destructive. If you’re both drowning in sorrow (which happens often for your sensitive sign) who’s gonna throw you a life raft?
Where you clash:
Commitment is a slippery subject as neither one of you likes to be caught in another person’s net. Since Pisces can be prone to addiction—it’s easy to lose sight of limits when it comes to indulging in rich food, popping open bottles of red wine, and spending on whatever seems impulsive and romantic in the moment. Save some money for hiring help. You’ll need outside sources to provide structure—accountants, housekeepers, nannies, life coaches. Indeed it may take a village to keep your relationship thriving. Good thing Fish like to swim in schools!
Pisces and Pisces are both water signs
Into the depths you go! Pisces and Pisces are 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 others’ 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.
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.
Pisces and Pisces are both mutable signs
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 the case of two mutable signs, it’s non-stop variety and spontaneity. This can make life a grand adventure—one week you’re in Bali, the next you’re in Berlin—but you can also get totally un-grounded as a duo. Who’s gonna create the structure in this relationship? (Zero hands raised.) Making a decision (or even committing!) can also be difficult, since neither of you likes to be locked into anything permanent. This is the couple that’s together for decades, but never “gets around” to marrying. The idea of freedom actually serves as a binding agent between the two of you. (Case study: the mutable match of Sagittarius Brad Pitt and Gemini Angelina Jolie was a global-citizen love story until they relented to tradition and tied the knot.) Sure it’s a bit of a paradox, but that’s the way your signs like it. Mutable signs specialize in communication and discovery. Together, you can be lifelong learners who never run out of topics to talk about. On a bad day, you can be argumentative, flaky and overbooked—your own separate lives may be stuffed to the gills with too many projects, plans and friends, making it hard to find enough quality time together. Be careful not to scatter your energy and spread yourselves too thin in this love match.
Pisces and Pisces are both yin, or feminine, signs
In astrology, every sign has a “polarity”: you’re either yin (feminine) or yang (masculine). Pisces and Pisces 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 others’ 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 others’ personal growth.
Pisces and Pisces are conjunct (the same sign)
In astrology love matches, we also measure compatibility by the aspect, or distance, between the two signs. Your signs are conjunct, or the same sign (zero signs apart). As they say, how can you love somebody else unless you love yourself? If you date or get into a relationship with someone of the same sign, congratulations. You’ve probably embraced your quirks and accepted your humanity. Now, you can celebrate that with a kindred spirit! If you haven’t learned to love yourself, warts and all, this relationship can inspire some crucial self-acceptance. Remember, though: #twinning might be comfortable, but autonomy is important to keep that frisky friction. Maintain some separation between your lives, even if it’s easy to hang out together. Otherwise, passion may cool to a brother-sister vibe.
