Pisces and Scorpio Match
We often hear that Pisces and Scorpio are a good match, but few reasons are given why. Is there any truth behind the notion that both water signs are complimentary?

The answers to those questions and many more can now be revealed.
As a reader, you have the right to know that I am Scorpio man. Over the course of my lifetime, I’ve spent countless hours researching and studying astrology with specific emphasis on Pisces and Scorpio.
For reasons that are beyond my level of awareness, I am drawn to the study of astrology. And to be completely transparent, I am not an astrologer or a reader.
But what I can tell you is that I’m a researcher and a Scorpio man with a keen interest in the metaphysical. I also happen to be a counselor that is trained in psychology.
Using insight from Jungian psychology, I write about Zodiac signs like Scorpio and Pisces as part of psycho-spirituality: a $10.00 term used to describe the blending of psychology with spirituality.

During my studies, I’ve learned that not all signs are good fits for Scorpio. The same holds true for Pisces; one of the most mystical and misunderstood signs in the astrological universe.

Let’s start out with a chart of primary traits and then move on to specifics regarding both Zodiacs.
The Traits of the Two Signs
Impacted by moon
Pisces: February 20 – March 20
Pisces born people fall into the 12th house in horoscopic astrology. That’s a $10 term used to describe a theoretical structure that contains specific attributes that manifest in human form by way of traits.
Riding on a cosmic wave of energy, those characteristics are broadcast by Pisces ruling planets, Jupiter and Neptune respectively.
According to ancient teachings, Jupiter represents all things here and now. Neptune symbolizes an end of reality that is devoid of time and space.
Major Pisces Traits (Positive and Negative) Include:
- Highly empathic
- Animal lover
- Prone to depression
- Vulnerable to alcoholism
- Sexually submissive
- Warm, inviting
Scorpio: October 23 - November 21
People born under the Scorpio sign fall under the eighth house of the Zodiac. Inside its doors are traits connected to intimacy, bonding, logic, and mystery.
Scorpio is ruled by Mars and Pluto. This is important to know because Mars is a hot planet, fourth in distance from our sun.
Pluto is further out and considered the last celestial body in our solar system. This planetoid is also thought of as the coldest and most mysterious by astronomers.
Mars represents energy, action, passion, and desire. Pluto symbolizes secrecy, mystery, death, obsessiveness, and renewal.
Major Scorpio Traits (Positive and Negative) Include:
- Highly sexual
- Emotionally distant
- Sexually dominant
Water Signs: Mutable and Fixed
Both Pisces and Scorpio are water signs. In simple speak, water signs are considered deep and intuitive, highly sensitive, and empathic. They also hold psychic abilities with Pisces being the most psychic of the astrological universe.
But not all water signs are the same.
Scorpio is a fixed sign; meaning it is firmly centered in place. Think stability and resistance to change when you hear the term fixed.
Pisces is a mutable sign; meaning these folks can change and adapt relatively easy. Think go with the flow when you hear mutable.
As an aside, there is one creature of the water family, Cancer. This is a Cardinal sign; an entity that empowers massive change like our planet’s seasons.
Why Do Scorpio and Pisces Match?
Now that you have some basic background information, let’s look at the specific reasons why Scorpio and Pisces match through the lens of compatibility.
I will walk though through seven specific life areas and provide supporting rationale.
1. Sexual Energy
Simply put, Pisces and Scorpio put a premium on emotional bonding as part of intimacy. But in the bedroom, the two signs operate on much different plains of reality.
Scorpio, usually dominant, can be overwhelming for most partners. Intensity, empowered by the hotness of mars, commands Scorpio to exert power and control.
Pisces, almost always submissive, is uniquely equipped to handle this powerful form of energy. That’s because Piscean born people are highly empathic and become aroused by connecting with and tapping into this extreme kind of kinetic force.
The physical attraction between the two is magnetic. Unlike other signs that need to talk as a buildup to intimacy, this is not so between Pisces and Scorpio.
Initiation of mating is intuitive. Words need not be spoken during close time together – it simply isn’t necessary. That’s because both signs can empathically read one another in an uncanny way.
Pisces has one advantage. It can “see” through Scorpion logic and center directly into arousal zones. This leaves Scorpio feeling challenged; something that paradoxically draws this sign into Pisces snares.
The Moon's Impact
You should know that the moon is a major impact on all water signs. Much of this relates to astrophysics and the moon's gravitational tug on earth's oceans.
So what's the lunar-water sign relationship?
During full moon, Pisces people can seduce Scorpio into a place of submissiveness. This is the only time both signs switch roles, allowing Pisces to take charge.
Moreover, during full moon, when the celestial body's magnetic field reaches its zenith, a quantum field is generated has an erotic affect on both signs.
It is during this period when physical attraction and sexual energy is most high. Mating during this short window of time is said to be powerful, explosive, and memorable.
When you think of intimacy between these two signs, conjure up mental pictures of extreme passion.
Pisces and Scorpio put a premium on emotional bonding
Pisces is perhaps the most sensitive feeling sign among the Zodiacs. It thrives on pleasing others and is drawn to those who need care taking.
The more complicated a person is, the more Pisces gravitates towards their direction. It is a blessing and curse for this sign because Pisces tends to care too much for others and neglect self-care in the process.
Empowered by a cosmic wave emanating from Neptune, some 2.9 billion miles away from Earth, Pisces searches for the mysterious and complicated.
It is here that Scorpio steps in, arguably the most mysterious and puzzling sign of the twelve zodiacs. Vibrating darkness from Pluto and light from Mars, Pisces is drawn to Scorpio like a moth to a flame.
Conversely, Scorpio finds calm and peace from Pisces, something Jupiter’s stable orbit gifts to Piscean born people.
In matters of love, Pisces and Scorpio match because the two uniquely bond and deeply understand one another.
When Scorpio gets caught up in an obsessive cycle and becomes neurotic, Pisces mysteriously can heal complicated feelings and help Scorpio become re-centered.
On the flip side, when Pisces enters a deep well of sadness due to absorbing too much from others, Scorpio can pull Pisces out of their toxic morass and provide renewal.
This is not to say Pisces and Scorpio do not experience friction. In truth, they do—a lot. But Pisces has a “chip” that can contain intense Scorpio reactions. It is the only sign except for Cancer, that has this ability on Scorpio.
The trust between both water signs is high because of empathic transparency. In other words, both Pisces and Scorpio can intuit dishonest behavior.
While it’s true that Scorpio is distrustful of others by nature, its ability to tune into Pisces makes this less so.
Moreover, Scorpio’s demand for honesty isn’t nearly as pronounced when attached to Pisces born people because Pisces is a hopeless romantic, taking an idealistic approach to fidelity and monogamy.
Should one of the duo cheat, the other will know – instantly. There is no hiding, even though both signs are masters at cloaking the truth to others.
Chalk it up to intuition or psychic abilities or whatever you like but that’s how strong the bond is between both signs.
Pisces and Scorpio can intuit dishonest behavior
When sufficient time has passed between Pisces and Scorpio, communication is generally not a problem. Part of this is due to their psychic abilities.
However, in the beginning of the relationship, there can be much friction. That’s because Scorpio tends to be overly blunt and say insensitive things to Pisces that causes deep wounds.
Part of the bonding between both signs involves discomfort. It’s part of testing boundaries and in the first stages of the relationship.
But the Piscean trait of being overly sensitive is also a sword when attached to Scorpio. That’s because Scorpio can tell when it has pushed too far and will comfort Pisces, even when Scorpio feels emotionally distant.
As time goes on and the two water signs dive deeper and deeper, verbal communication lessens and empathic communique increases.
This is not in the way you may think. There’s no mindreading involved.
Instead, it’s about a strong intuitive bond that is not explainable on this plain of reality.
Ask any person involved in a Pisces Scorpio relationship and they will verify, without hesitation, what I have just shared to be true.
Residing in both Scorpio and Pisces astrological houses are related traits. Pisces, for example, holds mysticism and magic and all that is unseen.
Scorpio’s house holds the afterlife, the occult, renewal and transformation.
Combined, both signs will hold conversations for hours about topics that most other Zodiacs may not find interesting.
Examples include long talks about how the earth started, the beginnings of the galaxy and the ability to bend time and space. Politics, human experiences, including joy and suffering, also captivate the Pisces-Scorpio mindset.
Finally, on this point, both Pisces and Scorpio are highly intellectual. But Scorpio can become sidetracked during conversations because the sign tends to over-analyze.
There’s no easy way to say it except to blurt it out. Pisces is not the best with money. Moreover, this sign is not motivated by the accumulation of wealth or standing.
Scorpio on the other hand is just the opposite. Because this sign is highly competitive, analytical and mesmerized by numbers, it naturally gravitates towards finances.
Remember, Pisces is a mutable, adaptable sign. Scorpio is fixed.
Translation: Scorpio likes to know things are financially stable and secure. Pisces views money as a conduit to pleasure.
The reason these two signs are such a match with money is because Scorpio can give Pisces what it cannot provide for itself; financial boundaries.
In turn, Pisces can give Scorpio a financial challenge and something to manage.
There is one exception. While Pisces signs are not great with handling their own money, they are fantastic at managing the finances of others – like family.
You may be wondering why?
It’s simple. Because Pisces assumes a caretaking role in this dynamic, viewing family financial management as an extension of providing love.
Scorpio can give Pisces what it cannot provide for itself
Given that both signs are water based, Pisces and Scorpio naturally gravitate to the sea. Swimming, fishing, surfing or just hanging out at the beach are activities both generally like.
Because Scorpio is a fixed sign, it may struggle with trying new things. That’s not to say it can’t happen. It does. But it takes Pisces dreamy sense of adventure to kick Scorpio’s behind to get things going.
Scorpio loves to travel. Pisces is addicted to romantic adventure. Combined, both make for an excellent match.
It’s important to mention here that Pisces has a special relationship with animals. It’s almost supernatural because the sign can communicate with dogs, cats and other creatures in near human ways.
Scorpio, an animal lover too, doesn’t have this same ability. In fact, creatures of nature will sometimes steer clear of Scorpio when they pick up on this sign’s deep psychic conflicts.
In relationship terms, this means the dog or cat is going to be closer to the Piscean. Just food for thought in case pets are ever introduced into the dynamic.
Briefly, I’ll mention politics in relation to Scorpio and Pisces. It’s simple. Both signs generally have a progressive outlook. Scorpio is moved by analysis and facts. Pisces gravitates towards social issues and education.
That’s not to say they don’t disagree politically. It happens. But the norm is they share similar views.

Pisces Scorpio relationships tend to be long term. We’re talking decades on end. Moreover, Pisces Scorpio parents provide a wonderful family unit that offers stability and compassion.
