Regardless of elements and planetary placement, Pisces is a sign that needs to be understood. With intuition as his governing strength, too much push and not enough yield will collapse a Pisces very quickly. Pisceans tend to increase the aesthetic and empathetic qualities of their environment and individuals with an artist temperament will appreciate the affect this sign has upon the world. For this reason, those who are essentially in tune with the water element tend to mesh best with the sensitivities of Pisces.
These two water signs will find that they have plenty in common and experience a strong bond right from the beginning. Cancer gravitates towards Pisces' artistic and sometimes mysterious nature, while Pisces truly appreciates Cancer's sympathetic personality. Cancer is the great domestic and nurturer of the zodiac. Pisces loves to be mothered and emotionally engaged, particularly because Pisces is a sign that lacks inner structure.
Scorpio is intense and profound. This fixed water sign will fascinate Pisces endlessly. There is an intense attraction here, as well as a general sense of well being when they're together. If the world was solely made up of emotions this would be a perfect pair. However, the world does contain errands and bills that need attention, and it's in this area that the first cracks begin to show. Even so, if both partners are willing to bend a little this can be a wonderful and mutually satisfying relationship. Scorpio is the dominant sign in this pairing and can grant Pisces the leadership and stability that he so requires.
The zodiac opposite of Pisces is Virgo. Virgo shares the same quadruplicity as Pisces in that they are both mutable signs. PiscesVirgo's ability to adapt can help this sign understand and express patience with Pisces' emotional curiosities. Moreover, both Pisces' and Virgos are said to be good communicators; this is vital to handling highly fluctuating emotional climates. Processing change through communication can make life transitions markedly easier. Virgo is a very busy and exacting sign. The productivity of this earth sign can supply Pisces with good conversation as well as a progressive environment.
The combination of Pisces paired with Pisces, much like the sign itself, can be one of extremes; these two might feel they've made a soul mate connection since they both seem to understand each other's emotional nature. On the other hand, it can also be a case of familiarity breeds contempt, in which the pair begins to drift from one another.
Pisces would do well with a Taurus; a sign that is defined by its grounding and stable nature. However, as a fixed quadruplicity, Taurus may be a little too grounding for the highly adaptable Pisces. Pisces loves change and loves to feel and experience every emotional aspect of change in life. Thus, Taurus may be stifling.
Capricorn, the cardinal earth sign, is also a stabling personality for Pisces. Still, as a strong serious type, Capricorn may be overcome by Pisces' capricious nature and become exhausted by this match.
