Aries + Pisces Compatibility
An Aries and a Pisces match. Aries is the first sign of the zodiac; Pisces is the last. This means on one hand they are polar opposites, and on the other they are side by side. Pisces is the end of winter, and Aries is the start of spring. Water gives to fire what it needs to make the flowers grow. It’s a beautiful yin and yang relationship.
- Aries as the first sign is a born leader. Aries takes charge. They do care about people’s feelings, but they’re more focused on getting the ball rolling. They’re full of energy and full of will. They share this gift with everyone; they provide the momentum for the rest of the year. Without their call to manifest, the other signs would never come to fruition.
- Pisces is the mentor. Pisces is the last sign, making them the wisest. They have seen everything. They have experienced everything. They are the creativity in the dark that allows Aries to spark. Without Pisces, Aries would never get inspired to start the new cycle.
You can see how these two are highly related and necessary.
The Head and the Feet
What’s nice about these two signs is they should naturally fall into different roles while taking care of different but necessary matters. Aries is a strong yang. They want light and activity; they want their vision to be manifested. Remember, Aries is coming from the head. Aries symbolizes the mind while Pisces symbolizes the feet.
The zodiac teaches about love by placing each sign on the body. The head has different tasks than the feet, but together they capstone the body. The first thing your parents ask when you are born is if you have all your fingers and toes. Your feet show where your heart is wanting to go; the feet are your direction, the servants, the martyrs of a message.
When you think of the Ram, you think of horns coming out of the head. This is what Aries is like. There is a variety of intelligences found in the zodiac. Aries is quite hotheaded because they have so much mental energy. They often suffer from headaches.
Two Opposites With Shared Qualities
Pisces and Aries feel comfortable sharing qualities. Aries is next to the mentor, and Pisces is next to the leader; they enjoy sharing their knowledge.
Neighboring signs often make for great relationships. It’s easier to find common ground with your neighbors.
Aries Is Initiation, and Pisces Is Liberation
Aries is confrontational. They like tension, they like push-back, and they don’t like people pleasers. Pisces will have to stand up to this because they are not super in love with confrontation. Pisces will have to be conscious of themselves; they need to avoid the urge to be a martyr (or doormat). Always sacrificing can be toxic.
Yes, Pisces ending the year is a huge blessing that gets Aries started. But that doesn’t mean Pisces is without value or has any other purpose outside of giving to others.
Pisces is all about liberation. Coupled correctly, Aries wants to win the battle and Pisces wants to liberate the victory — they want to include the newly won over land into the entire country. Pisces is about unconditional love while Aries is about initiation.
How Water Signs and Fire Signs Get Along
Pisces as a water sign is going to want to spread and have everything around them. Water signs don’t have a great sense of boundaries. They may confuse friendship for romance or romance for friendship. They need some help setting up those borders and establishing what they mean.
Water signs depend on intuition and telepathic energy. They can get overwhelmed by too many words, but I feel Pisces isn’t as vulnerable to this as Cancer and Scorpio. Pisces doesn’t want to be overwhelmed by a message — they want to understand it, but if you offer too much it can be too hard to focus.
Aries as a fire sign is the mover and shaker. They help manifest reality, and they help ignite the fire in others. They want people to look at and develop their free will. You can’t face fate if you have a weak will. Challenges will come to you, and Aries wants to push and prepare you… so you can succeed at various trials.
Aries might not be conscious that they are bossing you around. They usually do this with good intentions.
Pisces might be confused by Aries’ forward behavior… they might take it as manipulation. Pisces, as a water sign, understands and is sensitive to manipulation. Ultimately, Aries will need to work on softening their aggression.
They Offer Lessons for One Another
These two will refine each other substantially, and they’ll learn deeply from their differing perspectives. I really encourage you to stay positive if you are in this relationship because there is a great deal of room for growth. There is potential, which is exactly what you want and need in a relationship.
You want to grow old with someone, not stay the same as you grow old. You constantly are working to help the other to have a stronger sense of self.
Advice for This Pair: Work Together, Not Against Each Other
Aries needs to remind themselves to serve Pisces from time to time so that Pisces doesn’t use up all their energy and collapse. Aries needs to give time to Pisces, help heal them, give them affection. Just spending time together can be helpful.
Don’t forget to invest in other ways in the relationship, because Pisces — and water signs in general — feel better with validation and when their partner puts in more energy. Aries can put in a lot of energy but can also forget to do so.
What Pisces Should Remember
Pisces, you do not have to be a martyr. Things are okay even if you are not sacrificing. Be supportive of Aries and the vision they are accomplishing. Aries will love you for your encouragement. Don’t be afraid to be direct with Aries or go into territory that frightens you. Tension can turn into passion quite quickly with Aries, so the confrontation is usually positive and helpful. If it’s too much for you; you need to recognize that and deem why. Don’t keep yourself in a toxic relationship.
You are a wonderful person, so stay strong. Pisces types are earnest, giving, and loving. This is a hunter and a gatherer relationship. This relationship shows that we as humans can survive, we can fight off troubles, and we can go forward when we work together.
What Aries Should Remember
Aries, remember not to rock the boat too much. Consider when and why you are picking battles. Be quick to apologize and slow to anger. Listen to your Pisces and be open-minded. Don't get so headstrong that you are not taking on new ideas. Pisces is the mentor and can challenge you to be a stronger version of yourself—making you one of the best leaders possible.
How to Work on Weak Areas
Pisces can be an idealist, which pushes them into sacrificial love. Aries needs to work on sensitivity. Pisces needs to work on independence. They have a strong desire to merge and cling, but Aries sometimes wants to go out, battle, and take charge. Pisces can take on the emotional state of the room, and Aries can be concerned or cornered by this.
Aries needs to give Pisces room to come closer, and Pisces needs to give Aries space at times. Aries is masculine and yang; Pisces is feminine and yin. Understand that you come from different sectors entirely, but together you make something akin to royalty. Also, remember you are neighboring signs. You should, at times, be able to see yourself in the other person. You two can find common ground.
Talk, say your feelings, be supportive. If you compromise and really study each other, you can go really far. You will be attracted to each other with ease because of the differences. This will help sharpen your weakest points without having to depend on someone else.
Aries, don’t leave Pisces in the dark. Help them to be independent if they are clinging too much. Aries don’t dominate the Pisces, be humble and be a good steward. Bending your ego will make you stronger, not weaker.
