While both Pisces and Scorpio are passionate, they come at it from opposite directions. The Fish is a romantic who falls in love easily and wears its heart on its sleeve. The Scorpion is secretive and takes a long time to trust. Once Pisces breaks through Scorpio’s protective shell, this pair can build an amazing life together.
The secretive Scorpion is very difficult to really get to know. A person of extremes, there is never any middle ground with Scorpio. The passion of the Scorpion can be quite frightening and many are put off by it. However, for those with the strength, a Scorpio mate can offer worlds of passion and a whirlwind romance available nowhere else. Once a Scorpion has chosen its life mate, Scorpio enfolds its partner in a protected world of passion and love.
Unlike its fellow Water Signs, Cancer and Pisces, the Scorpio exercises complete control over its emotions. On the outside, the Scorpion can seem very cold and unemotional and Scorpio can be very cruel when roused. Yet anyone who gets Scorpio to open up finds this cool exterior protects a heart capable of a deep level of caring and love. A committed Scorpio is exceedingly loyal to its mate.
The gentle Fish seems to be created for love. Pisces is a hopeless romantic and will go to the ends of the earth to please its mate. Its empathic tendencies make the Fish very attractive since it instinctively senses what others want and can become exactly that – at least for a while. Pisces is an excellent lover, imaginative and concerned that its partner has just as much fun as itself. The Fish opens itself completely to its mate and can be very easily hurt by neglect or harshness.
Pisces is not at all equipped to deal with discomfort. The Fish will generally choose to escape pain rather than to try to fix the issue. If Pisces can’t escape physically, it will disappear into its own head where it has created a much kinder world. Because the Fish is so sensitive and prefers flight to fight, Pisces is quite prone to substance abuse and other addictive behaviors that allow it to forget its problems.
A Pisces – Scorpio paring nearly always begins with the Fish being pursued by the Scorpion. Pisces is slightly intimidated by the obvious power of Scorpio and intuitively senses the wellspring of passion hidden beneath the Scorpions calm exterior. The Fish admires Scorpio’s aura of competence and its outward level of success. The Scorpion is intrigued by the mystery of the Fish and charmed by its obvious vulnerability. Pisces triggers Scorpio’s deep protective instincts. Quite simply, the Fish makes the Scorpion feel admired and powerful. This allows Scorpio the feeling of safety it needs to open up and expose its inner self.
As a couple, the Fish and the Scorpion get along well. Pisces is quite passive and seldom challenges Scorpio’s power. The Fish hates to make decisions and is quite happy to leave that to its partner. This very obvious demonstration of trust is very much appreciated by the Scorpion, for whom trust is the ultimate commodity. In appreciation of this, Scorpio carefully considers its mates' needs and wishes when deciding on a direction.
Scorpio’s obsessive control and strategic mind makes it quite competent in any career it chooses while the Fish’s dreamy persona makes achieving real world success quite a struggle. The Scorpion can encourage its Piscean mate in its endeavors and lend it some perseverance and stability. This is a real boon to the sensitive Fish since it finds its inability to realize its dreams a real frustration.
The Fish and the Scorpion are very happy at home. This pair will create a sanctuary where they can enjoy cerebral stimulation and sensual pleasures. Both the Fish and the Scorpion are deeply affected by beauty and their home will be richly decorated and filled with items that delight the senses, although it is unlikely to be conventional in any sense of the word.
Pisces and Scorpio are destined to have a passionate relationship. Any combination with the Scorpion is one of excess so there will be nothing middle of the road about this pair. If this relationship goes badly, both partners are likely to be severely wounded since Pisces can’t help but open up to its mate and the Scorpion will have let the Fish past its formidable defenses.
The inequality between Pisces and Scorpio always holds the potential for problems. If the Scorpion is not truly open to its partner, it will not be in the frame of mind to take the Fish’s needs and desires into consideration when decisions are made. Scorpio is very focused on what it wants, and it is a bit of a departure from its normal mode of operation to consider anyone else. Should the Scorpion decide to cut the Fish out of its calculations, there is little Pisces can do about it. The Fish simply doesn’t have the clout to waver Scorpio when the Scorpion has made up its mind about anything.
The Fish’s tendency to escape from outside pressures can also result in disaster for this couple. The Scorpion isn’t personally familiar with the melancholy so often suffered by its mate and may consider it to be a weakness. The Fish needs respect from its partner and will be sadly affected if that is lost. This will send Pisces spinning further toward depression and it will be very difficult for the pair to stop this cycle.
There are few couples that could bear the passion that occurs when Pisces and Scorpio join. The two Water Signs are both steeped in emotion, but their practical differences offer much to one another. The Fish gets a partner that can support it and help it to become more effective in its life. The Scorpion finds someone that allows it to open up and show all the love and caring it possesses. As long as the Scorpion works at being considerate and the Fish can avoid profound depression, this pair will continue to light one another’s world with emotional pyrotechnics.
