When the Scorpion Meets the Twin Fish
Pisces and Scorpio are the dreamiest match in all of astrology. This is a pairing that's legendary. Both signs are guided by emotions. They've been craving a kind of creative ecstasy their whole lives. They want to go deeply into the water. They'll dive as far below the surface as they can go. They're like mermaids in human disguises.
Both Scorpio and Pisces desire a powerful physical and emotional connection. They're both smart and can do anything they set their minds to.
Scorpio needs someone that can explore the full range of emotions they offer, which is an excessive amount. Scorpio's range goes to the bottom of the Mariana Trench and all the way up to the clouds.
Scorpio wants to be in a relationship, and not just for sex—a lot of people target Scorpio for only focusing on sex. But that's not the case. Scorpio wants all of your body, mind, and soul. They're very demanding, and it can be too much for a lot of people. This is why Pisces makes for a strong relationship candidate.
Pisces is an old soul, a total romantic, and emotionally sensitive. Pisces is on a quest for true love. They believe they have a twin flame somewhere in this universe. They're searching high and low for a powerful connection. Love is their drug.
Two Water Signs Will Understand Each Other
Both water signs care beyond the norm, they are vastly imaginative, and they are powerful because of their maddeningly complex moods. Pisces is tender enough to handle Scorpio, and Scorpio is automatically protective of Pisces who often gets abused by others. Many like to take advantage of Pisces' empathy. Pisces has to work harder to set boundaries because people will walk all over them.
Scorpio is intense. They get obsessed with their object of affection. The fixed water sign wants to be committed, and generally, they demand that from the beginning. If you're not 100% committed from the beginning, then why should the Scorpio bother with you? Why should they stay with someone who isn't 100% loyal?
Scorpios can be stubborn to a fault. They push hard on people to inspire them to their best performance. Scorpios can make for amazing bosses, but they can be obnoxious and over the top.
Pisces is a fabulous mentor. They are the last sign of the zodiac, and so they have been through and seen it all. This is excellent for the Scorpio who needs someone who understands them and can nurture them. There is an old saying that what Scorpio wants in a partner is their mother (Freud would have been happy only studying Scorpios.)
Scorpio's Emotional Stages
Scorpio goes through multiple emotional growth points. The sign is described by three symbols, which all express different points of evolution.
- The Scorpio first comes into the world as the slithering, selfish snake. They'll bite at the heel.
- Then the snake morphs into the scorpion, which isn't much better. The scorpion is all about instinct and war. They love really hard, but scorpions are also known to eat their partners (yikes!).
- The final metamorphosis for Scorpio is the phoenix (sometimes called the eagle). The phoenix soars high, they're loving, they'll sacrifice themselves for a worthy partner.
It's not easy to stay in the phoenix stage, so the Scorpio often cycles through their multiple stages. They need a partner that can be patient with them as they turn into a snake, a scorpion, and a bird.
Pisces as the last house represents unconditional love. Scorpio needs someone who is unconditional because Scorpio is chaotic. Pisces knows that people will go through tough times, they will fall short, but they also mature, inspire, and succeed.
Scorpio has to go through a lot of shortcomings, pain, and refreshing. Scorpio as a symbol is incredibly important to all of us. A lot of people misunderstand the fixed water sign, but if we are ever to go forward as people—we'll need to master the lessons of sacrifice and resurrection.

Water Is about Healing
You get hurt, and your body magically heals from it. This is the real force you are dealing with in life. You won't stop healing until you're dead! Imagine all the cuts and bruises you've gone through in your lifetime, and how they've all disappeared.
Scorpio is all about healing. They want a partner to go on a journey of emotional healing. This world and the way we have it set up currently doesn't really fit with a Scorpio, who thinks more deeply about pain and overcoming it. They can go unnoticed for their thoughts.
Scorpio is passionate and Pisces is tender. Pisces can also be extremely powerful, which is why they can stand up to Scorpio. Pisces helps tame Scorpio. They can direct Scorpio and sharpen their emotional range.
Scorpio can get obsessive, jealous, manipulative—it's all coming from emotions that need to be refined.
Scorpios are hardcore and can scare off people who are not ready for them. Pisces could get scared off by them or really annoyed.
Pisces wants a certain degree of balance. They want true love; they also want something grounded. Scorpio can be so dedicated to matters of the heart that it can backfire. They'll stop believing themselves and go into hermit mode or loner mode. They may put up their guard and hide in their homes until they warm up to the idea of people again.
For someone who can be as bright as a burning phoenix, they also know how to cool down and freeze people out. Essentially, a Scorpio can go through any form of water: ice, steam, liquid, mist, boiling, dew, rain, hurricane.
And the Pisces…. is symbolized by two fish. Pisces types swim into and around those crazy currents.
Pisces Desires True Love and Ultimate Healing
Fish swim in the water; they're not the water itself. Fish know how to live; they decide the direction. They'll travel through rough currents and to places that are in total darkness.
Christ is symbolized by the twin fish, and Christ's time on earth is often described as the era of Pisces. This means sacrificial love, miracles, gospel-like power, and an "others first" mentality. Pisces is expressed by compassion, humility, and grace. Pisces have all of these miraculous traits at their fingertips. This is why they are great mentors; they are under the symbol of the greatest teacher. Pisces types are natural disciples of Christ, regardless of whether their theists, agnostics, or atheists. They tend to naturally love others.
Pisces have an understanding of etiquette — chivalry, manners, sincerity. Pisces needs to be careful because there are a lot of people who would abuse their power. Pisces should especially be careful if they date a Scorpio, some that are unrefined could really harm them and their natural luck, good nature, and capacity to heal others.
Pisces wants a relationship that is devoted, that hits into the fullness of love, that is open and non-judgemental. Pisces doesn't want a shallow version of love. They want to give and receive affection, they want to take care of others, and they want to really live in their ideals.
This makes them amazing people, and the zodiac would be pointless without them. The story doesn't end with Aquarius. Pisces is the final lesson.
Pisces has psychic intuition. They can use it to help others. They have big hearts, but they can take on too much. They can be martyrs with no end in sight. Scorpio needs to step up and protect them. Scorpio needs to cherish the Pisces who makes a huge difference in their world.
Where Pisces unlocks and helps Scorpio refine itself, Scorpio helps Pisces feel safe and at home.
Scorpio and Pisces Intimacy
This pairing is the stuff of dreams. Behind closed doors, these two will intuitively understand each other. There will be long stares into each other’s eyes. They’ll become so entwined with each other that they’ll struggle to see where one person ends and the other begins. This is ideal for people influenced by water; they want to merge with another person in totality.
They have a really strong physical connection. They’re emotionally deep, and they’re on a hunt for deep emotions. They want true love. They’re both on a search for a soul mate. They’ll passionately kiss. Pisces may cry. Scorpio will keep the fire going.
These two will find the intensity they crave with each other. Their intuition will be blowing up like fireworks. If Adele’s music could be broken down into two people. . . it would be this couple in the bedroom.
You are Worthy of Love
Pisces is worthy of Scorpio's immense love. And Scorpio is worthy of Pisces unconditional love. This is a very affectionate and very emotional relationship. I think it is naturally compatible. This couple might be shocked when they go through a rough patch. Even though it might surprise the couple, they'll most likely figure out how to navigate the crisis.
Pisces is incredibly intelligent but can feel weird and out of place. Scorpio who is frequently misunderstood for being grumpy and moody needs to validate Pisces. . . because where Pisces is struggling to feel normal is coming from a scarier place.
Pisces is worried that their great big ideas on love are not real, and without that reality, Pisces feels that nothing is worth living. Pisces can feel completely unhinged by this. People tend not to relate to Scorpio because of their immense dynamic—the Scorpio is loving while also has the capacity to go completely cold.
Don't only focus on emotions as a couple. Make sure to step away and focus on your home, your finances, your other friends and family, your life goals. It's okay to have some boundaries and foundation. This can help add security and understanding.
Be open with each other, remember to think about your partner rather than just your own needs, and be good listeners for each other. It's okay to plan ahead, it's okay to have bad days, it's okay to not feel as into each other some days. It's okay to face complexity, and it's okay to have someone feel and go through your emotions.
Don't mock each other when you are weak. Think before you react.
There is a natural flow to these two signs. They will know when to take the lead and when to follow. I see Scorpio being the protector and Pisces being the mentor.
This is a fairly loving relationship, but without proper maintenance and hygiene, this match could turn toxic. You need to work on yourself and really know yourself before getting into a relationship—especially one this powerful. Strengthen your own weaknesses, so you are better able to face the circumstances life has to offer.
We blame others and do fault-finding when we are angry, but when you are thinking from a more calm and healing mindset, you will better consider circumstances.
A healer is a problem solver. Fault-finding is more fear-based and more shame-based. Fear and love cannot exist in the same place. Scorpio and Pisces have a massive amount of emotions, so they need to be careful not to construct a household of fear. Gone poorly, a Scorpio and Pisces relationship will turn into a tsunami.
Together the two should help each other stay positive and in the light of love. This will help keep the relationship on track.
