Aries and Pisces can be a great match if Aries is patient, caring and romantic. In a worst case scenario it can also be a highly destructive one for Pisces if not.
If you can both adapt to the others style this is a relationship which will improve steadily over time, and eventually rival any other match. The low scores represent a high initial challenge, and not a long term pessimistic view.
These scores show the averages for data collected from my clients over the past 20 years. It's important to note however that individual relationships vary enormously. This is a summarized picture, a real compatibility reading is needed to judge a real relationship. It's also worth noting that Soulmates can be found in any sun sign match, even those which are statistically likely to have low compatibility.
This article is in two halves, the first is written from the viewpoint of the Aries man or Aries woman, and the second is written from the viewpoint of the Pisces man or Pisces woman.
Almost certainly you'll be in control of this relationship on many levels, and your Pisces will be your personal fan club if you treat them with respect and patience.
The danger here is that you're spontaneous and aggressive by nature, while your partner is sensitive and likely to be highly vulnerable emotionally by your standards.
This is likely to be a very sensitive and caring partner, and one bad mood or harsh criticism can hurt them far more than you will anticipate. If you have a temper then it's going to make this relationship extra difficult.
Pisces appreciates a strong and protective lover, and you certainly meet that requirement. If you find yourself in control of the relationship then be aware of your partners needs. Don't disregard them just because you can.
Compounding this, your Pisces is likely to be incredibly loyal and will deal with it for a very long time before complaining - Pisces nearly always 'go with the flow' in preference to picking a fight (again, often an alien concept to Aries!)
If you're an Aries who likes some competition from a partner it's likely that your playfulness in this area will turn into indirect bullying. Be wary of this, as it can be a fine line.
This comes to the heart of the relationship - your Pisces is likely to be an incredibly sensitive, supportive and emotional partner - while as an Aries, you're often not looking at that same page unless you force yourself to do so.
Make sure to appreciate those qualities, and don't dismiss them as trivial. This is perhaps the most supportive and understanding partner you can find - and can make an excellent compliment for your bold and decisive nature. Just be careful not to walk all over them without realizing it. If the relationship becomes too one-sided it will end in a lose:lose.
If you're romantic, patient and tender this can be a wonderful match. If you treat sex as sport, there will be almost no spark once the initial attraction and novelty fades.
As in other areas this can certainly work, but you'll both need to compromise and meet in the middle. It's unlikely you will just 'mesh' without a conscious effort on both sides.
It's important to note however that we're looking only at sun signs here. There are many other planets which can have an equal or greater effect on someone's personality. Makes sense, as ultimately everyone is of course unique. Generalizing too far based just on sun signs can therefore be misleading.
To fully understand someone or how compatible you are with them we need to calculate those other planet placements from their date of birth, and compare them to your own, and then interpret the results.
This unlocks the real power of astrology, and gives much more useful and specific information: everything from how they view you, how to turn them on, how to avoid arguments with them etc. If you would like to explore this further please see the compatibility readings page.
There's no shortage of initial attraction or chemistry here. You may well both be drawn to the other, and this is a match which may initially appeal to you, especially while your passionate Aries is determined to win you.
Strong, domineering, impatient, blunt, aggressive, passionate, insensitive (by your standards), your Aries will mean well, but emotionally they're as strong as an elephant, and have a bad habit of trampling anything which gets in their way.
No matter how hard your Aries tries this will probably include trampling your feelings occasionally.
Worse however, your Aries is very dynamic and spontaneous, always looking for adventure, change and challenge.
Once the initial thrill of the chase wears off it's very likely they will become bored with your romantic, sensitive and selfless nature, and pay less attention to holding their fiery nature in check. If this happens, this can easily start to feel like a one sided relationship with an emotional bully.
The main thing to realize in this relationship from your standpoint is that it will require a lot of compromise. This is natural and easy for you to accept - not at all a problem. However, your partner isn't nearly as adept at compromising - it doesn't come naturally or easily for them, so in many respects this relationship is "out of your control" and its success comes down to how much your Aries is willing to bend.
To a large degree then the success of this relationship will depend on just how "Aries" your Aries is! (see my man and woman pages for details). In many respects their style is the complete opposite of yours, and without solid communication and a willingness to compromise this can be a very hard relationship from your side.
Aries is a very passionate and direct sign, and often treats sex almost as a sport occasionally. While there may be a strong initial chemistry, you may have trouble getting any other form of lovemaking to be appreciated.
Passionate yes, hot yes, romantic.. not by your standards. This is one of many areas which can be fantastic with compromise. If there isn't any compromise however then it's going to be difficult.
So is this article conclusive? No! This article is based only on sun sign interaction. In order to provide a lot of people with information it's a convenient and fast way to generalize, but it's far from conclusive at this broad level.
