Pisces: Compatibility as a couple
In general, Pisces is prepared to make any sacrifice to make a relationship work. Their sacrifice tempts many couples to take advantage of Pisces, which works for a while. But soon, Pisces will go elsewhere to find a relationship that is truly meaningful.
That's what Pisces seeks: a partner to bond with so that the universe smiles and agrees, and life as a whole becomes a reality. Nothing less can sustain Pisces for long.
It seems impossible, but Pisces tends to find such love, because of a willingness to self-sacrifice. When you try hard enough, you get what you want. And even in a relationship that isn't everything you could want, Pisces makes it soothing, satisfying and wonderfully enjoyable, while it lasts.
Pisces: compatibility in other signs
Pisces, the seeker of the Zodiac, belongs to the water element, which is the element of emotions. So are Cancer and Scorpio, but that doesn't necessarily mean that Pisces is particularly compatible with them; they need to share affection and a deeply felt attraction to be compatible.
Nor is Pisces always incompatible with, say, the fire signs Aries, Leo and Sagittarius, although they are quite different. In fact, differences are important in a relationship.
This is most evident when comparing astrological qualities: cardinal, fixed and mutable. Each sign of the Zodiac has one of these qualities.
Pisces is mutable, which means someone always ready for change and variety. That pairs quite well with other mutable signs in a relationship, if you have the patience to discover that in each other. The mutable ones are Gemini, Virgo and Sagittarius. They have a similar impatience and curiosity, but that also means that they can pass each other without even noticing this similarity.
Pisces is much more compatible with the cardinal signs, who are the leaders who take the initiative. They also like change, as long as they choose to do so. The cardinal signs are Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn. Such a relationship with a leader is at least mostly fluid. And Pisces feels good about adapting completely to the partner, in the search for perfect love. But, of course, there can be other problems. The main problem is that Pisces needs a perfect, eternal relationship.
With signs that are fixed or slow to change, Pisces gets bored easily and even depressed. The status quo is for Pisces a stagnation, and is therefore like a prison cell. It is not easy for such a couple to stay together for any length of time. The fixed signs are Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius.
But nothing is set in stone. A relationship is complex. There is no guarantee of what will work and what will not. All the personality traits of each zodiac sign must be taken into account when examining your astrological compatibility.
