Why Aquarius and Pisces Are Attracted to Each Other
Aquarius and Pisces Compatability
Lots of people mistakenly think water and air elements don't go together. They are quite wrong. To some degree, all air signs are motivated by emotion, and all water signs are motivated by thought. They have more in common than not.
Consecutive signs often share traits, regardless of element. Aquarius being the 11th house and Pisces being the 12th, they have a unique position in astrology, and the two are often considered the strangest of the Zodiac signs. Though frequently misunderstood, both signs are great thinkers, and very creative—powerhouses of imagination, if you will.
Aquarius are generally a brilliant, innovative, and curious zodiac. Pisces are full of compassion, great mentors, and frankly, very dreamy. These two are going to share a lot in common intellectually. This will be a great connection for them if they have developed their minds, studied hard, and applied themselves in many challenging intellectual arenas.
While Aquarius is naturally drawn to Scorpio, their relationships often end in a metaphorical battlefield. I think an Aquarius who keeps running into this problem might find more peace with a Pisces.

A Meeting of Two Creative, Introspective Signs
Pisces will be genuinely excited by the potential in Aquarius. Pisces, who is at the end of the zodiac, has become more like a mentor, where Aquarius is still open to experimenting with some parts of life, making them incredibly progressive. As the zodiac cycle nears the 12th house, the zodiacs become softer, more introspective, and creative. Aries is much more charged, fire-like, and forward compared to Pisces and Aquarius.
There's a certain sage wisdom that the 11th and 12th house will want to share. Sometimes people ignore the emotions of Aquarius because they are so focused on Aquarius' brain. This can be frustrating for Aquarians, who know they have great emotional potential.
Pisces' Strong Will vs. Aquarius' Sensitivity
Both Pisces and Aquarius have deep needs for creativity and helping others. I think these two will come to each other very easily in empathy. But both need to examine themselves and figure out how they can be toxic individually.
Pisces can be very strong-willed (part of this comes from being a water element), and Aquarius as a sensitive soul can be frightened when people push boundaries. Aquarius partly hides their emotions because they are afraid of how people will tamper with them.
Aquarius is often private, independent, and free-spirited. Pisces is romantic, compassionate, and unconditionally devoted.
Pisces-Aquarius Sexual Compatability
Aquarians are often attracted to Scorpios because it's one of the few signs that can awaken them sexually, but other problems can arise with Scorpio. Pisces can be more instinctively nurturing to an Aquarius; they can still open them up sexually but also offer something that Aquarius craves and Scorpio often neglects—romance, emotional intimacy, and originality.
It's easy for an Aquarius to lose itself in a Scorpio and be stuck in a love loop, a fantastical, all-consuming experience, but often they are left broken-hearted. Aquarius can have their deep, fantastical love with a Pisces without the crushing breakup.
They can have that with a Scorpio too, but Scorpios do have a tendency to sting their loved ones, which can push and shake up an Aquarius. Sometimes this can be a good thing, as it forces a shift in perspective, but it can often be damaging for Aquarius. It is important for Aquarius to learn where their limits are and when enough is enough.
Pisces Crave Love and Romance
What's amazing about this combination is that both are intuitive, compassionate, and light-hearted. Pisces, to me, is the sweetheart of the whole zodiac. Cancers, Scorpios, and Pisces all have emotions that run deep, but for different reasons.
Pisces craves romance—the hidden lilies behind the facts of life. Pisces wants love and feels that learning to love is the most important lesson in life. Sometimes Pisces can become parental with an Aquarius since it is only one house away. These houses are extremely well-connected.
Aquarius Makes Pisces Feel Welcome in the World
Sometimes Pisces feels lost, confused, and misunderstood in this world. Rightly so, because we live in a violent, prideful, and misguided world. How can a lover even exist here? But Aquarius has a certain charisma to bring them out of the heavy waters.
Aquarius brings in new ideas and helps Pisces move in the water. Aquarius helps Pisces feel understood.
They're a Perfect Blend of Fixed and Mutable
Aquarius is a fixed sign, and Pisces is a mutable sign. Some of Aquarius and Scorpio's attraction and misinformation comes from them being fixed signs. While Aquarius-Scorpio relationships can become mired in stubbornness, Aquarius-Pisces relationships are often much more peaceful.
Mutable Signs know how to go with the flow. They are adaptable and flexible and can change their form of expression to whatever a situation requires. Standing their ground is of little import to Mutable folks. These people would much rather conform to the norm, so long as their doing so will help the greater good. Luckily, Mutable individuals are versatile and find it quite easy to change. Consider them the chameleons of the zodiac, since they can take on varied personae.— Chris Barbalis, Astrology.com
Aquarius Craves Authenticity in All Things
Aquarius is constantly critically looking at the world and questioning its reality. An Aquarius who is well developed will look for relationships they feel are deep, authentic, fated.
Aquarians believe in fate with a combination of free-will. They try their best to have discernment. It's that discernment that makes them weird—they're looking in spots in this world that most are not. Pisces is going to be attracted to Aquarius for this reason. And Pisces should remember not to play games with Aquarius, because the Aquarius will see right through it and be offended by fakeness.
Pisces Will Put Up With Too Much
Pisces is a devoted person. They don't want to put up with inauthenticity either, but since they are unconditional in their love, they will accept things that are bad for them. Pisces believe in love so powerfully that they will go along with it even when it hurts them, regardless of how others treat them.
Aquarius is a good match for this person because Aquarius can't put up with the false. Aquarius looks at what is false and shakes it up, telling it that it needs to take a hike because it's ruining the romantic beauty of the world. Pisces, of course, will appreciate this, because essentially on a subconscious level, the Aquarians are the protectors of the Pisces vision.
Aquarius Protects Pisces Vision of Love
Are you starting to see how these two support each other? Aquarius protects Pisces' vision of love. Pisces wants to grow Aquarius' potential for the world. Together they can move mountains, make beauty manifest in the world, and make the world a better place. This is an incredible pairing—one that can be incredibly psychic, nourishing, and imaginative—but both will need to grow as individuals in order to step into this kind of relationship properly.
If you are not ready, this relationship could get dismissed too easily. This is something that can happen in any relationship; if you don't have your own inner strength yet and haven't learned how you stand in the world, combining your energy with someone else's is going to be messy. You must constantly be learning about yourself and remember that everyone you meet is still learning about themselves too.
Tips to Steady the Relationship
Every zodiac sign has a unique set of strengths and weaknesses. Acknowledging these strengths and weaknesses and finding ways to balance them out will help you make your relationship stronger.
Advice for Pisces Dating Aquarius:
- Trust yourself. If you don't trust yourself and your surroundings, you'll manipulate others.
- Recognize the power of your love. You have great capacity for love, which makes you knowledgeable about what is unloving. Always chose love, even if the world makes it hard on you. When you hold back love, it's very hard on people. It may become a burden that people depend on you so much, that when you leave, it is very hard for people to move on. Whether you know this or not, your love is needed—not just for others, but for yourself.
- Don't let people abuse your love. It's okay to step away and do something that maintains your own security. Tend to creative projects to help your own energy when you want to go deep, but someone else is stuck in shallow waters.
- Seek to be understanding, not threatening. You know you don't want to be threatening deep down because what you really want and crave, what you really want to believe, is the face of love.
Advice for Aquarius Dating Pisces:
- Don't be afraid to take off your mask. People see you as a brilliant thinker, but they are touched and moved when you truly reveal yourself—when you reveal the motive behind it all. Open up your beauty; be bold, be courageous. When you feel it in your spirit, go. When you know it with all your heart, go with that decision.
- Accept yourself for who you are. Continue to be your eccentric self; grow, thrive, and nourish your heart. Love your own inner child. Be accepting of yourself. When you accept yourself, others will accept you too. Don't be afraid of who you are, because you are exactly what you need to be.
- Stay away from anger. Find ways to smile. Don't get lost in the occult or impulsive actions.
- Don't be a pushover. Don't be easily tricked. It's okay to say no or to stop something when it has turned sour. Your potential helps shape the world for a better, more loving reality.
I believe each zodiac combination has a chance; it's just a matter of learning what each sign brings to the table. I'm not one to say any pairing has greater or lesser compatibility than another. There are many other factors in the relationship equation.
