How To Get Along - Aquarius and Pisces

The Water Bearer and The Fish

This series on AstroCompatibility will cover all of the potential matchups in the Zodiac. We will continue this series thinking about and commenting on Pisces and Aquarius. You can get new info at Christofer's new website at:

Aquarius - Pisces

The Aquarius is Air. The Water Bearer image is not a water sign, but an air sign. It is Fixed. Pisces is Water and Mutable. Pisces, the dual and watery Fish has a strong quality of knowing and understanding, just like the Aquarius does, which gives the combination a kind of Merlin quality. The Aquarian impressions, combined with their independence of mind, carrying around their revolutionary heart, is colored by the nether world uniqueness of the Fish. When these two get together, they have a way of synergistically blending many of their more mysterious and remarkable characteristics. Since they have their particular specialness, they tend to understand each other. That understanding manifests itself in the Fish allowing for the Aquarian to go ahead and be itself. The Water Bearer gets a lot of funny looks from its fellow sun signs, as it goes through life. Pisces adds so much tolerance in general, and here, quite specifically to the mate, partner, associate, lover, friend - which is Aquarius, a great kindness, a great mutual relief, comes over the relationship like a warm moist morning fog that heals those who breathe in the low lying cloud of understanding.

Aquarians are not ones to give up their sense of themselves, and so when this spirit of tolerance and understanding comes over the two, Aquarius feels more empowered. One might conclude that this would make them even more wild and individualistic, but rather it calms them. In that acceptance, which gives them less tension, they come to a greater self-acceptance and a new thought comes over the Water Bearer. “Why do I feel more patient?” You might ask what the Aquarius does for the Pisces. The Pisces gets more of a focus by relating to their buddy and friend. Out there in real world, away from their churning interior, the Pisces gets a friend who storms around declaring itself to be special and knowing and understanding. With Pisces, that separate idea gets a partner who also begins to subscribe to the Aquarian self belief. These two can do new things together, that separately they might not have been able to. The team of two gives each other a new strong identity. They might start a small business together, or just be a happy romantic duo with separate jobs. They could invent a new idea that becomes a book of research on esoteric subjects. Investigations is what both do at a mental level; perhaps they do it at the mundane level. Whatever becomes their identity, it is definitely something that happens because they got together. This is enlivening.

Positive Postulate: Put positively, their attraction and love for each other becomes an admiration and respect for one another. They should realize too that the “club” that they have formed has a kind of soaring quality for both of them. Since they know they have one foot somewhere else most all the time, this very quality becomes OK. This permission they give themselves to be exactly that - themselves, gives their new found identity of two an even stronger uplift.

Romance Recommendation: These two would feel elevated in each other’s affections. A comfort and an ease sends them like an air balloon over the countryside of their former haunts. They experience together, an enchanting romance where oddness and eccentricity get and are given, a grand kind of permission to be who we are. Just knowing this makes their romance even stronger.

Conflict Quotient: Aquarius feels that it has the answer to everything. This confidence sometimes can be vexing to others and downright strange to many. Pisces, however, blessed with their mutability and duality of spirit and mind swims so fast around the fixity of the Water Bearer, that it takes the edge off Aquarian insistences. As the Pisces smooths over the harder edges, a modification comes about through this magical tolerance. It somehow lessens; and the team can go on.

Peace Parlay: Life in the end is repetitive and mundane, and so is Romance itself. This factor asks the question: "Can we be bored together over the long term?" In the comforting cloud of the new place that they make for each other, they seek a kind of boring state in which nothing can reach or harm them; even the big questions that plague them every day. This constitutes a refuge for them.

Keep Up The Interest Graph: The orbits that get created around the sun of their relationship, gives them a very minor set of worlds in which the new and the fresh happen each day. This gives them a place where brand new interest gets manufactured by their togetherness.

Seven Year Itchiness: There are some signs that by their nature are more stable in their love interests and family concerns as time goes on. Others are not. Pisces would “gentle up” the somewhat spontaneous tendency of Aquarius to over explore the world around them. Because of their special partnering, they know that infidelity of any sort tends to spoil their magic together.


ASTROCOMPATIBILITY POSSIBILITY RATING: 75% Positive Long Term – 85%% Short Term. Intrigued right off the bat by each others’ magic, they dip into the netherworld and the “otherworld”, and find each other, right there. If tolerance and understanding do actually reign, and the harsher kind of individuality does not win the day, they keep going and exploring how

In my opinion, it goes like this: Aquarius' ego is so tied up in being the one who "cares" that they make more of a show about it. It is in Aqua DNA to start a "foundation" for "needy" souls. The Pisces IS understanding and heartfelt. It is how they function. While Aqua is on the promotional tour describing how saintly they are. Pisces is filling up soup bowls and listening silently to the plight of the person that the Aqua has stamped "understood". Aqua loves to talk about having transcendent states ---- Pisces just has them. No bragging. No talk. Talk kind of gets in the way of transcendence. Blessings to both.

Ichigo on February 27, 2016:

I'm an aquarius. I think that Pisces understands as much as an aquarius can. But not autimatically feel the way an aqua will. Truth be told we in a way envy their way of open ness. " understand" and not feeling. To understand you must feel as well. Aqua already opens their heart out to you. Pisces does not.

Christofer French (author) from Denver on May 08, 2013:

Last question first, if any woman says the "getting in the mood" is a problem then you might need to ask yourself how you approach that challenge. To add the fact that she is a Pisces, this issue becomes more important. They live in water based consciousness. Feelings, intuitions and hunches are important to the Pisces. Again, I would think about that if she says the "mood" is not being addressed. Trust if broken, is like a cut. It needs repair, whoever violated it. That takes time and a belief that the relationship has a future. Being an Aquarian, you can sometimes speak from a strong feeling of knowledge that others do not share. Intimacy is challenging for everyone. If I were you I would advise both of you to move toward one another. You, not expecting quick immediate responses based upon a quick mental take on the situation. She, to move toward you so that she can encourage you to communicate with her, and she with you. Believe in your spirit of tolerance. She should believe in her compassion. Put them together and maybe you have a chance to communicate. Blessings.

Marquis on May 07, 2013:

I'm an Aquarius male and I'm dating a Pisces woman. Are relationship has some communication problem and I feel sometimes that she is detached or dosent show me the affection I need. Also trust is a big issue because it was broken once. There is also a problem in the romance department as well. Seems like the spark is missing when it comes to are sex life in terms of "getting in the mood" at least for her. Advice?

Christofer French (author) from Denver on November 10, 2012:

Dear Pisces. It is not that he doesn't care. He is just acting like an Aqua. Pisces interprets it as "not caring" and "aloof", which of course is natural. So, realize that you have got an Aquarius on your line and he is going to predictably act like they act. If he does not communicate well enough for you then that is something you will have to decide about. I think the one key thing I can say is that they are constantly being misinterpreted. Pisces is over on the sweet and communicative side of the spectrum. Aqua is over on the distant side of the spectrum. It remains to you to decide how you feel about that.

nikki on November 10, 2012:

My boyfriend is an Aquarius,I'm a pisces sometime we get alone well but we do often bump heads over little stuff. He is very detached and so I have learned to be that way as well,but our relationship lacks communication and that's what is killing us I'm going to start to talk down my walls of fear and talk to him maybe he will open up find him hard to talk to at time though I'm scared of saying something that might make him mad often feel like he dosent care but I see when I open up he open up a little but after its seems as if nothing happen he is back to being aloof.Aqarius also feel like that should receive and not give.or this guys does.

Christofer French (author) from Denver on June 27, 2012:

This can happen to a Pisces Man. A strong woman can be one who guides but also forgives. If by a strong woman, you mean that he will respond to various forms of abuse, this may not be true. Best to you. Blessings.

AquariusIthink on June 26, 2012:

Pisces men do need a strong woman. They are kind but very weak to temptation.

Andy on April 09, 2012:

I remember when I fell in love with an Aquarius dude (he was actually my very first true love), I remember how our communication was confusing and somehow we liked to be close to each other. We really had some weird strong connection, even with our difficulties with communicating, later on we started to talk more and he was always flirting with me and I felt in love, I kept having hope that someday we would ask me to date him.

But he was in love with an Saggitarius girl who was my friend too. So it became a very awkward situation, he didn't know who to chose and kept flirting with both of us, to the point our friendship (with the Sagi girl) ended due to his indecision and due to her revenge against me, she just needed a way to put him against me and lied to him, of course he believed in her.

So I tried and made a lot of effort for him to forgive for something I wasn't to blame about and he gave me a second chance. Two years passing by and I was still waiting for his final decision. One day he left school and never had spoken to me again.

Summer came and I got a phone message from him, telling how much he missed me, how much he needed me, how much he loved me and needed to be with me forever. I was shocked to read that and I just couldn't believe. I sent the message back two weeks later.

I guess he couldn't wait that long for a response, I only saw the message two weeks later because I'm not a person very found of cellphones. (funny how I waited two years and he couldn't even take a week), September came and Tadaa, he started dating another girl who I never met before.

Luckily my feelings for him faded out since that occurring. I started to get romantically interested with a Capri dude back then, but he was just like him, stubborn and everything I didn't need again so I stopped looking for hopeless relationships.

Few months later I met the love of my life who is a Leo, he was the one who invited me to an encounter and declared what he felt without fear, it's been two years now since we are together.

He's kind, loyal, honest, brave and makes decisions at the right time, gives me attention, and I return it with all the love I can give, we have a LOT in common and we have endless conversations and fun, we give each others space when it's needed and when we are together we both become fire, we have so much bound. I couldn't have better for me. He is really my lover and best-friend.

So some say water & earth fits better, I guess neither air or earth fits for me. I just find weird how can a person like me, Sun in Pisces, Asc in Gemini, Mars in Aquarius, Venus in Aquarius had so much trouble with air and earth guys.

Does the sun influence that much? It seems they cannot take my way of transmitting emotions and thoughts, since I cannot fake who I am.

And how come earth be the perfect combo to water? They are cold as air signs (at least through my perspective) and what really keeps my emotions balanced is the fiery Leo.

I don't wanna let no one down though, if there is someone who is experiencing a pisces+aquarius relationship I wish all the best. Try to spot the flaws and qualities from each other and respect/tolerate so everything can work out. One major important thing there is communication.

In terms of Friendship I have nothing against nothing and I accept everyone and tolerate everything but lies and disloyalty. I usually get along well with everyone from every sign when it comes to friendship.

Sorry for the long test, just wanted to share my experience... thoughts and doubts.

Your comments do show how the harmony can be there. Aqua is understanding as long as their sense of identity is not assaulted.

aquariuslady on January 03, 2012:

my first husband was a pisces and i loved him very much.

it was a very trial/trying relationship but i wouldn't trade the experience for anything. if i had to live again i'd marry him all over again. why did we break up/divorce? he was an alcoholic,drug addict, not loyal to me,cheated,and went to prison a lot, (dui,burglary,drugimpoundment,ect) and we have a child together too. i wrote this on another blog, but i wanted to share this here as well. i was very young, underage to be honest and that's another reason why we parted. i had to finish school and raise our child away from that unstable world.i was still a kid myself. but the experience brought me such growth and so much pain. i loved him with all my heart then. even after his cheating, i forgave him. weird for an aqua huh? but i didn't care. i guess having a child really changed it too because, without getting too detailed about what happened, it was too dangerous to raise one in that environment. pisces men are good men deep down, and what they need is a strong woman to be there, supporitve and to be positive. they love positivity in their lives.

Dioley08 on November 04, 2011:

Im dating a pisces woman and i can say that we get along for the most part. Our understanding still needs work but other than that we make up a pretty good team. Everyone envy our relationship cause we both are complete opposits so we cover every ground.

judsdhius on October 08, 2011:

i'm a pisces and i dont get along with sagittarians and aquarius so whatever it si what it is.

Anette Aas on August 01, 2011:

Temperance M:

I know your comment has been out there for like 2 years, but I just had to respond.

I'm Aquarius and my mother is a Pisces. I feel that we don't get along as well. We're completely opposites and we have different meanings and she loves to interfere with my opinions rather than trying to understand them.

On a general note, I get along with most people, well accept Leos. So when I don't get along with my mother, its pretty hard and she's the only real parent I've got. Good luck to me!

Christofer French (author) from Denver on August 06, 2009:

Aquarius is the water bearer, but they truly are AIR signs. Pisces is so water that its hard for Aquarius to understand Pisces, and truth be known, they already think they know, so its hard to learn more, especially when the Fish are so inscrutable anyway. Pisces actually understands you pretty well probably. They just don't care to get into it. With one understanding and the other "Knowing", there is not going to be a lot of unity. However, the Pisces is worth being around. They won't bite.

Temperance M from Oregon on July 08, 2009:

I'm an Aquarian and my mother is a Pisces - sometimes I swear she has all the negative qualities of a Pisces. I swear we never get along! She is forever calling me little miss know-it-all...(in fairness maybe I have some of the negative aquarian traits as well lol)

I have on the other hand met many Pisces folks that I loved to be around - I just don't always understand where they are coming from!
