Why Aquarius and Pisces are Attracted to Each Other
Aquarius and Pisces Connection
I believe each zodiac combination has a chance, it's just a matter of learning what exactly you're making. I'm not one to say any pairing has greater or lesser compatibility than others. It's all just a different equation.
To start things off: I think Aquarius often gets into relationships, attractions, and a battlefield with Scorpios. I think an Aquarius who keeps running into this problem might find more peace with a Pisces. Consecutive signs have a lot in common regardless of element. Lots of people mistakenly think water and air elements don't go together. They are quite wrong. All air signs are motivated to some degree by emotion, and all water signs are to some degree motivated by thought. They have more in common than they do not.
Often we share traits with consecutive signs, Aquarius being the 11th house and Pisces being the 12th sign have a unique position in astrology. The two are considered the strangest of signs, often misunderstood, great thinkers, and honestly full of imagination. A powerhouse of imagination, if you will.
I think Aquarius are generally your brilliant, innovative, and often curious zodiac. Pisces are full of compassion, great mentors, and frankly, very dreamy. These two are going to share a lot in common with their minds. This will be a great connection for them if they have developed their minds, really studied hard, and applied themselves through many arenas.
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. I like to describe Aquarius as Jean Grey from X-Men who can also flip the switch and be the Phoenix.
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 at people, 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 unconditional. Aquarians are often attracted to Scorpios because it's one of the few signs that can awaken them sexually. Other problems can arise with Scorpio (and I have a hub for that combination, and there is greatness in that relationship) but I think Pisces can be more instinctively nurturing to an Aquarius; they can still open them up sexually but also offer something that Aquarius craves that Scorpio often neglects -- romance, emotional intimacy, and originality. (Scorpio always has originality though). It's easy for an Aquarius to lose itself in a Scorpio -- and be stuck in a love loop, a fantastical LSD experience, but often when they are broken hearted. Aquarius can have their deep fantastical love with a Pisces without having to have a 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, whether for their good or detriment. If for your detriment, learn to know where are your limits and when enough is enough.)
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 knowing romance, the hidden lilies behind the facts of life. Pisces wants love. It really craves love, and that is the highest lesson in our lives. Sometimes Pisces can become parental with an Aquarius since it is one house away. Think of them as like feet and ankles -- obviously a well connected relationship. (And what they represent.)
Aquarius brings in the new ideas and helps Pisces move in the water. Aquarius helps makes Pisces feel understood. 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 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. They can have a certain stubbornness that they both like and that also cancels them out, if not well tended. "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." Mutables
Pisces comes from the planet of love, Venus. Aquarius comes from the planet of the rebel, Uranus. Love in a sense is a rebellion on this planet. Our natural code is to rip each other a part. Human nature is not good; it is like a garden that must be tended. Aquarius is constantly critically looking at the world and questioning what it feels like isn't real. Aquarius is wandering this planet back and forth trying to figure out what is actual and what is the absence of the actual. An Aquarius who is well developed will look for relationships they feel are deep, actual, 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 because 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 fake measures.
Pisces is a devoted person; since they have X-ray vision for love, they too don't want to put up with what is false, but since they are unconditional in their love they will accept things that are bad for them, malignant, and terrible. Pisces will play into love even when it hurts them because they believe in it so powerfully -- and they are correct regardless of how others treat them. This is why Jesus is often seen as the symbol activated in the age of Pisces. He always loved, even when others did not. It's because of him that others want to live by grace over 2,000 years later. 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, tells it it needs to take a hike because it's ruining the world, 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. Somewhat like the disciples protecting Christ's vision of love for all.
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. Both will need to grow themselves as individuals in order to step into this kind of a relationship properly. If you are not ready, this relationship could get dismissed too easily. This is something that happens in any relationship, if you don't have your own inner strength yet, haven't learned how you stand in the world, combining your energy with someone else's is going to be messy. You will constantly be learning about yourself. And remember everyone you meet is still learning about themselves. This combination is incredibly psychic, nourishing, and imaginative.
Tips to Steady the Relationship
Pisces -- trust yourself. If you don't trust yourself and your surroundings, you'll manipulate others. You have great capacity for love, which makes you knowledgeable on 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 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 are wanting to go deep, but someone else is needing to be in the shallow waters. Seek being 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. And God is the face of love, so your believing in love points people to the realization of God. It also points you in that direction, so keep steady.
Aquarius -- don't be afraid to take off your mask. People do always see you as a brilliant thinker, but it is stemming from your heart. People are touched and moved when you reveal yourself. When you reveal what is 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 in all your heart, go with that decision. 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 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.
