Compatibility of Pisces and Aries: love, friendship and much more
Aries and Pisces’ initial attraction to each other is one of fascination as their very different energies attract each other.
This relationship is a rare combination because of all the 12 signs, these two are the most distant from each other in every way. Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, and Pisces is the last. Aries is a cardinal, yang, fire sign, and Pisces is a mutable, yin, water sign.
Aries is ruled by Mars, the planet of war and action, while Pisces is ruled by Jupiter and Neptune, the planets of expansion and dreams. Astrologically speaking, these two have as much in common as an apple and an orange. So what is it about them that attracts them to each other?
It boils down to the fact that they admire each other’s differences. As I explain in my book Sun signs in love, these two are diverse in nature, so it can be difficult to stay perfectly compatible for long. Thus, they would do well to remember that it was their dichotomy that attracted them to each other in the first place.
Aries and Pisces aspect each other in a “semi-sextile” that is initially met with resistance due to their differences. At first, they may even feel jealous or intimidated by each other, but when they stop competing, they can uniquely combine their individual qualities to create something of their own, supporting and complementing each other.
Aries’ childlike view of the world, for example, touches Pisces, making them feel young and energetic. The energy of Aries is fresh, cheerful, energetic and full of spirit, while the gentle dreaminess of Pisces acts as a cooling balm to the fiery nature of Aries. Thanks to this, the ram feels relaxed and cared for. Pisces energy is languid, calm, healing, and full of psychic awareness, which almost magically allows them to know exactly what to do.
Of course, it’s important to remember that when it comes to astrological compatibility (same synastry), you really have to consider the entire birth chart of both people, not just their sun sign. That said, here’s more about how these two signs live in love and friendship, and how they’re similar and different.
