When Aries and Pisces come together, their relationship is often
mutually beneficial. Aries is a strong Sign who follows impulses
without worrying about the consequences. Pisces is quieter, one
of the dreamers of the Zodiac. In many ways they contrast and on
the surface they may seem an unlikely pair. But when they care
for one another, they are each able to fulfill the other's needs
and have a fulfilling relationship.
Aries is a leader and initiator, and in a relationship with
Pisces often becomes the protector of their more gentle partner.
Pisces, in turn, gives Aries quiet understanding and a place to
relax away from the pressures of Aries' hectic life. Pisces is a
Sign that, like Water, fills whatever container it is poured
into; they tend to give themselves over to their partners; they
often understand Aries in a way that many other Signs don't.
Aries' style of straight-shooting combines with Pisces' gentle
understanding of other people to form a confidence and
assertiveness that doesn't pass into arrogance -- the way Aries
alone might act -- and isn't overly accommodating, like Pisces
alone may be.
Aries is ruled by the Planet Mars and Pisces is ruled by the
Planet Jupiter. Pisces is also ruled by Neptune. Mars brings
action and energy to the Aries-Pisces relationship. Neptune is
about big pictures, ideas, and illusions; but it's also involved
with disillusion and fantasy. Aries can help Pisces bring
fantasies into reality. Jupiter works through Pisces by putting a
softer face on Aries' sometimes rash and brash style, toning it
Aries is a Fire Sign and Pisces is a Water Sign. Even though
these two elements are opposite they can combine to make a great
team by using emotion and physical impetus to get things done.
Pisces can help Aries relax a little and learn to be more passive
in approach, while Aries teaches Pisces to go out into the world
and begin to take the kinds of risks that lead to real payoff. At
times, Pisces can be emotionally draining for the Ram, too much
Water dampening Aries' enthusiasm. Conversely, too much Fire can
boil the Water away and leave Pisces emotionally bare. Aries and
Pisces must negotiate to ensure their balance is maintained.
Aries is a Cardinal Sign and Pisces is a Mutable Sign. Unlike
Aries, Pisces doesn't need to be the leader or the boss; when
they are given a project and a way to help out, they enjoy
lending a hand. They get their greatest joy from helping others.
Aries, on the other hand, is the one who comes up with the ideas
in the first place and assigns roles to the other participants.
Different aptitudes and interests help Aries and Pisces work on
the same project and achieve a positive end.
The best aspect of the Aries-Pisces relationship is that they
really have a lot to learn from each other. Pisces shows Aries
how to empathize and care; Aries teaches Pisces how to make
dreams happen rather than just thinking about it! The ability to
each provide what the other needs makes theirs a truly reciprocal
