Love Compatibility: Aries & Pisces

Updated March 23, 2017

Some signs of the zodiac seem like perfect matches, like a Capricorn and a Scorpio. Zodiac compatibility is often based on matching and complementary traits which may or may not be present in two signs. The love compatibility between an Aries and Pisces is a good one if the old adage “opposites attract” is true.

Features of Aries

Aries is the sign of people born between March 21 and April 19. Kris Brandt Riske, author of “Llewellyn’s Complete Book of Astrology” explains Aries is a refreshing sign of spring equipped with a fearless “just do it” attitude. As a cardinal sign, Aries is known for its take-charge leadership abilities. With Mars as its ruling planet, this sign is endowed with a fiery, spirited personality as well. Aries is unafraid to explore new territories with spontaneous zeal, though this zodiac sign has a tendency to leave business unfinished. Though Aries is happiest when leading and directing others, it has a tendency to be somewhat self-centered. Despite aggressive, combative streaks, others often find this sign sociable and charming.

Features of Pisces

This watery, feminine sign is given to people born between February 19 and March 20. Jenni Kosarin, author of “The Everything Love Signs Book” states Pisces is empathetic with an ability to lift anyone’s mood. Though the Pisces is known to dream, Kosarin states this sign is highly goal-oriented and efficient at the same time. A Pisces’s vivid imagination allows her to be a great romantic partner for the right person. She is very spiritual, emotional and inward-focused. Some mistake her dreamy, lofty nature for being flighty and capricious, but she is merely finely-tuned to the spirit world.

Harmonious Traits

Both Pisces and Aries are creative and ambitious in their vision, despite both signs expressing these goals quite differently. A Pisces and Aries love match works when the Pisces is willing to quietly support his Aries partner, who is more prone to commanding and organising. The spotlight of this relationship only has room for one partner, and the domineering personality of an Aries means she will usually get it. However, Pisces is willing to offer Aries much-needed solace and support when the world knocks the brash Aries down a peg. Pisces can also provide Aries council about what makes people tick. Similarly, Aries can help the typically-reticent Pisces with expression and assertiveness. Thus, these signs can use their strengths to help the others’ inherent weaknesses. The passion of both signs makes for a promising sexual relationship.

Incompatible Traits

Pisces is reserved. Aries is outspoken. Pisces dreams about lofty goals and implements them slowly. Aries jumps right into a promising situation without much foresight. These two signs must have immense patience with the other as they cope to understand each others’ fundamental differences. explains two signs couldn’t be more different. Additionally, both may become frustrated as neither sign acquiesces to the others’ suggestions.

Overall Assessment

Though these two are not the most promising couple in the zodiac, Linda Goodman, author of “Linda Goodman’s Love Signs” states these two are compatible if each is willing to accommodate the other sign’s very different way of viewing life. Aries must accept the fish’s tendencies to evade argumentation at all costs and Pisces must be willing to be more open and expressive to the ram.
