Pisces Astrology Overview
You know that one friend who’s always around no matter what? They pick you up when you call frantic about meeting your boyfriend’s parents, and ask what’s wrong despite your fake smile?… They are most likely your resident Pisces.

What are the Characteristics of Pisces?
The long and short of it is that Pisces are intuitive sweet-hearts. They are best known for being:
- Childlike love of life
- One of the best romantic partners in the Zodiac!
Some of their other traits include being:
- Set in their ways
The Pisces Sign on a Saturday Night
On a Saturday night, you would have a 50/50 chance of finding a Pisces curled up binge watching Riverdale… or out being the life of the party!
They don’t mind being alone, but their sweet and likable nature makes them a popular call for a night out.
Intuitive, Spiritual, and Romantic!
Pisces intuitive nature puts them in close contact with their spiritual side.
If you’re friends with a Pisces and have a problem, don’t be surprised if they knew you were on your way before you texted! (And don’t be surprised if they smudge you with some Sage before you leave!).
That sensitive side also makes them die-hard romantics.
The Pisces astrology sign can face some challenges due to their sweet nature. Because they’re willing to see the good in everyone, they can be overly trusting. They are also quick to take the victim or martyr role in conflicts.
Like other “dreamer” signs, Pisces have the desire to escape reality. This can lead them to keeping their “head in the clouds” or neglecting to address reality when needed.
Pisces Astrology History – The “Fish”
Pisces is known as a “double sign.” This is due in part because of its TWO rulers (we’ll talk about that in a second), but also because of its symbol, the fish.
The familiar symbol of two fish swimming comes from the translation of Pisces in Latin — fish (plural). So in short, Pisces means fish.
Back in the day, the Pisces sign was ruled by Jupiter, but modern astrology places Neptune in that spot. (At one time, astrology only used seven planets as rulers, so most signs – besides Leo and Cancer – were “doubled” up.)
Even though Neptune is on the scene now, Jupiter still has a heavy influence on the Pisces astrology sign. Some Pisces feel more influence from one ruler or the other (it depends on other factors in their chart).
In a nutshell, Pisces need both rulers! It keeps them in touch with their body and soul.
Who Should a Pisces Marry?
Okay, let’s get into the good stuff… Pisces compatibility!
Both men and women Pisces are super romantic at heart. It’s likely that anytime they fall in love, they think they’ve found “The One.” (Oh yeah, they believe in soul mates!)
As adorable as that is, it can lead to Pisces stay in a relationship longer than they sometimes should.

Are Pisces Loyal?
As we said earlier, Pisces are one of the best romantic partners in astrology. They are loyal for life, and will treat you like a Queen as long as you show them love and appreciation. (But they are also sensitive, so be sure to speak with love, even when you are angry.)
When they marry, they marry for life, and stay true-blue loyal. As long as you are kind and show your appreciation, they will do anything for their partner.
How Do You Attract a Pisces?
The Pisces astrology sign can be hard to read. But a friendly smile and some attention will make a Pisces fall (and stay) in love with you. And when you’ve won them over, be sure to show them affection. (No cold fish here. Pun intended!)
Plus, they are super romantic, so little gestures will win you big points with them. And of course, Pisces love to flirt and be playful. A flirty text or “I miss you” emoji will let your Pisces know how much you care.
All in all, make them feel secure and cherished.
Pisces Astrology – Romantic Challenges
A Pisces signs greatest challenge in a romantic relationship is keeping their emotions in check… and not overextending themselves. They are SO inclined to play the martyr roll!
At the end of the day, if you’re looking for a loyal, caring, and generous partner (and who isn’t?), look no further than a Pisces!
Let’s get to the love matches!
Pisces Love Matches
Pisces and Virgo
Your grandma was right… opposites DO attract! Pisces and Virgo are total opposite signs, but they can make a fantastic couple.
Pisces are likely to draw Virgos out of their shell and expose them to their magical world. While Virgos may not always be a fan of this, they are ruled by Mercury and thus, are naturally curious.
To be clear:
The balancing act between reality/logic and emotion/fairy tale is the up AND down side to this dynamic duo.
Pretty cool, right?
At the end of the day this combo is one of the best matches in the Zodiac!
Pisces and Taurus
Because these signs are both pleasure-seeking, this pair can be a match made in heaven. *swoon!*
The interesting thing about this dynamic duo is that they both go “all in” on the other partner…
Meaning: Pisces may totally abandon what they need and focus on their Taurus… and the Taurus may do the same. This can lead to one or both partners feeling lost.
This match works as long as both people stay grounded, and don’t abandon their own dreams and desires.
Pisces and Cancer
You know that couple that oozes love and romance? They may be a Pisces and Cancer pair!
These two emotional signs have almost NO trouble in the romance department.
Their love story likely starts with, “Well, I saw him/her across the room and just KNEW.”
But of course, nothing is all champagne and roses. So this pair will need to walk a thin line of excitement (Pisces astrology sign) and stability (Cancer sign). If they can do that — nothing will stop them!
Pisces and Pisces
Two Pisces astrology signs in one room will rarely be bored. And in a relationship, their Zodiac energy will make or break them.
Here’s the scoop:
Because Pisces are seemingly ever-changing, it can be tough for them to be on the same page for a long period of time. On the flip side, Pisces are known to embrace the moment and see where the world takes them.
So if this couple can fast-forward through possible trust and goal issues, they may just make it all the way.
Pisces and Sagittarius
The Sagittarius and Pisces astrology sign are both ruled by Jupiter… so you would think they go together like peanut butter and jelly. But not so fast…
Because of Sag’s fiery nature, the sensitive Pisces may get more than they bargained for!
Rarely does this match-up last long in a romantic sense. But in a platonic relationship, the pair may find a lot of success!

Pisces and Scorpio
Whatever two water signs are together, you can expect an emotional ride!
You see, both Pisces and Scorpios rely on their emotional judgments in relationships. But if they can balance their emotions (and stand unavoidable negative moments), they have a good chance!
Their biggest challenge will be for both to honor logic, and not stay (or leave) purely on emotion.
Pisces and Aquarius
This pair won’t be one that’s obvious, but given the right foundation it can be very solid!
The Aquarius is usually pretty standoffish, which is foreign to Pisces. But if the couple started as friends, the love may already be there.
The sign of Aquarius exalts Neptune (Pisces ruler), so the signs are more compatible because of that. Plus, they are neighboring signs, but aren’t similar enough that the typical issues apply.
As long as both people make an effort to meet halfway, there is a good chance for this duo!

Pisces and Gemini
These signs don’t have a lot in common and thus rarely turn into the next Chip and Joanna (how adorable are they?!)
They’re too alike in that they’re both forgetful and childlike… and too different in that one’s emotional and one’s logical.
But, if the Gemini is kind and doesn’t try to change the Pisces, they may make it.
Pisces and Aries
Neighboring signs are typically a no-go in the Zodiac realm, and this pair is no exception.
While Aries is a water sign, their emotions are vastly different than Pisces.
They value unchanging, strong, and protected emotions. On the flip side, the Pisces astrology sign is easily blown one way or the other. This dynamic makes it difficult for the signs to trust each other.

What are Good Jobs for Pisces?
At this point, it’s no surprise to learn that Pisces’ NEED to have an emotional attachment to their work to be happy.
Their natural artistic inclination can put them in performing careers like:
- Dancing (we see you, Carrie Underwood!)
The Pisces astrology sign may also use their creativity in careers like:
- Media marketing
If they go this route, it will be necessary for them to work on meaningful projects — like designing materials for nonprofits or charities.
Pisces in Helping and Spiritual Careers
Because the Pisces astrology symbol is so spiritual, they may use their intuitive and gentle side for careers like:
- Social work
- Health care
- Intuitive reader
- Reiki Healer
In these careers, Pisces should be mindful to:
- Not get overly invested in things they cannot change
- Practice good self care
- Understand their empathic nature
If they don’t follow these golden rules, they could feel drained and exhausted a lot of the time!
As long as they’re impacting lives and making an emotional connection, a Pisces astrology sign will stay in the same job for as long as possible. They don’t have the desire to move around unless they sense negative emotions where they are now.
Are Pisces Good With Money?
No matter what career a Pisces ends up in, they probably won’t worry too much about money. In fact, they rarely even give money a thought!
Pisces focus on their dreams, so they will take a position that makes them happy over a high paying job. For example, they would work for a non-profit over a corporate job without a second thought.
Their emotional nature may lead them to either impulsive spending or strict saving – depending on the person.
