All About Aries 

First things first: Let’s get into what each of these signs are like as individuals. Fire signs such as Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius have a reputation for being fearless. They are not concerned about what is to come; and the cardinal sign of Aries is ready to go no matter what. Born between March 21st and April 19th, Aries are naturally adventurous and enjoy spontaneity and excitement. Represented by the celestial Ram, these people prefer taking the lead and feeling like the hero. They typically want to be in charge of everything, and will be very vocal about that need. They have fantastic and loud personalities that easily make others fall in love.(Click through to read more on Aries Women: Personality Traits and Characteristics and Aries Zodiac Sign Personality Traits & Characteristics)

All About Pisces 

Like Scorpio and Cancer, Pisces are water signs. They’re also mutable signs and are ruled by the dreamy, artistic planet Neptune. Born between February 19th and March 20th, Pisces are emotional, intuitive, empathetic, and deeply attached to whoever they are with. It may even reach the point where they are willing to sacrifice themselves for their lovers, and can sometimes forgive too easily. Pisces men and women enjoy solving riddles and are highly inventive; their thoughts often carry them to distant places, which is why they most likely live in their own little world.  (Click through to read more on Pisces Women: What to Know About This Mystical Zodiac Sign and Pisces Zodiac Sign Personality Traits and Characteristics)

Aries and Pisces Friendship: Besties or Enemies?

The development of a BFF relationship between fire and water depends on the individuals in question. Generally, the water sign appreciates pleasant relationships with people who are calm and have established ideals — but, due to fire signs’ impulsive, even explosive tendencies, the aquatic partner may become tired of conversing with their more feisty pal. Pisces’ gentle nature means they always try to understand what their friends are going through, a wonderful quality that helps to strengthen their friendship with the cosmic Ram. After all, Aries does need someone to share and vent their frustrations to!

Because of their opposing views, Pisces always convinces Aries to slow down and be more passive in life. By contrast, Aries convinces the sensitive Pisces to become more active and take risks that could make their life more exciting. Conflicts exist in any friendship, and chances are that differences and misunderstandings will arise here. However, if this pair can work through disagreements, they have the potential to maintain a solid bond for a long time. 

Aries and Pisces Love Compatibility

These signs can be both friends and lovers, offering mutual assistance to one another. The pushier Aries and the gentler Pisces can make a good romantic pair because water can control a roaring wildfire, while fire can warm up cold water. The truthful and demanding Ram, full of vitality and a strong desire for dominance and control, will embrace the embodiment of water with all of its flaws. This is exactly what the shy Pisces requires, as they are drawn to the idea of a fiery sign who can protect them. (However, when Aries takes the lead, they must not forget to assist their Pisces counterpart along the way.) The Ram will gain plenty from their watery partner’s passivity and indecision as well: it makes them feel powerful and superior, which satisfies their basic desires, plus it’ll force them to simmer down.

It may take time for these two to reach an agreement. The Ram can lack emotional discipline, consistency of thought, and mental equilibrium, while the Pisces must work on learning persistence and determination. They’ve got a lot to teach each other.


Aries and Pisces have a lot to talk about, but only when they feel at ease with each other. Because of their sensitive and protective nature, Pisces prefers to take their time developing this sense of ease. The watery folks dislike noisy circumstances, whereas Aries is as loud as loud can be. So, if you’re an Aries, you should be cautious with your remarks. Keep in mind how easily a Pisces can get their feelings hurt. And Pisces, don’t take an Aries’ blunt nature personally. Remember that what you say is just as essential as what they say — so do not be frightened to speak up and effectively communicate.


It will require time and effort for these two to connect emotionally. Rams are lively and admirable because of their independence, straightforwardness, and courage. However, their concentration and sensitivity leaves much to be desired. In turn, despite Pisces’ romantic essence, sensuality, and compassion, they are also characterized by apathy and a lack of discipline. Their Aries partner may find out about these qualities at the last minute, because this watery zodiac sign is also not known for its self-assurance, and may keep things hidden.

Aries are assertive and want to gain the upper hand in conflict situations — so the water sign’s shifting emotions may frequently collide with the fire sign’s inflexible feelings. This can cause a rift in the connection and, among other things, mark the beginning of mistrust. Pisces’ emotions are not always stable, and they tend to swing from one feeling to the next, which can be exhausting for Aries. 


An Aries and a Pisces’ sexual connection will be intense, passionate, and exciting… in the beginning. However, it may become less satisfying over time, especially for the Pisces. The typical Pisces is inherently receptive, which will make an Aries feel powerful and seductive. The difficulty, however, is that Pisces will often desire a much deeper emotional connection than the Ram can provide. The celestial Ram views sex as something they do to release tension, while the cosmic Fish view it as a way to connect with their partner. 

Although these two zodiac signs both consider sex to be important, there isn’t always a spark between them. A connection between Pisces and Aries is often built on friendship, with no sexual encounters. Still, if Pisces and Aries let go of their severe principles and conditions in the bedroom, they can experience more intimate and potentially rewarding love-making. Adding an element of fantasy or role-play is one way for this couple to keep things fresh; it’ll delight the Pisces and keep the Aries intrigued.

Aries and Pisces: Sometimes Soulmates

Yes, an Aries partner and a Pisces partner can get along; however, this match does require a little more effort than others. If you’re a celestial Ram, remember to be careful with your words, keeping in mind that they can damage your cosmic Fish. And Pisces, be prepared for your Aries’ fiery nature, and remember that your thoughts and feelings are just as important as theirs. If you’re both able to follow these tips, a Pisces-Aries match can certainly thrive.
