Read on to learn more about the strengths and weaknesses of the Scorpio-Pisces relationship, as well as to discover tips and advice for making it last. 

Scorpio and Pisces, At a Glance 

Before we delve into the compatibility between these two, let’s explore the characteristics of each sign individually. This will ultimately help us better understand them as a pair.

All About Scorpio (October 23 to November 21)

Scorpio is a fixed water sign that is represented by a scorpion. People born under this sign are said to be passionate, powerful, and intuitive. They have a knack for understanding complex situations and finding unconventional solutions to difficult problems. Scorpios tend to be very determined and independent, but are also loyal friends who will stand by their loved ones until the end. They can also be quite intense, so those around them must learn to respect their boundaries. Overall, Scorpios are fiercely protective of their own privacy and those they care about, and will fight to defend them if necessary. They have a strong sense of self and are not afraid to express their opinions. Those who are lucky enough to have a Scorpio in their life can look forward to lots of passion, and never need fear that their secrets will be revealed — but be warned that if you cross them, you’ll definitely feel the sting of the scorpion’s tail. 

All About Pisces (February 19 to March 20)

Pisces is a mutable water sign that is symbolized by two fish swimming in opposite directions, representing the constant division of Pisces’s attention between fantasy and reality. People born under this sign are compassionate, expressive, and artistic, often drawn to the arts or spirituality. They are highly intuitive and empathetic, always looking for ways to help others and make the world a better place. Pisces tend to be sensitive, romantic souls who enjoy spending time with loved ones and feeling connected to something bigger than themselves. Above all, Pisces is a sign of empathy and understanding. No matter the situation, if you need a friend to listen or show you some compassion, the cosmic fish will be there for you… as long as you can pry their head out of the clouds first.

Scorpio and Pisces in Friendship

Scorpio and Pisces are both emotional water signs, so they share many personality traits; They are each sensitive, creative, and even a little psychic, so they can commiserate with each other’s feelings without having to say much at all. On top of that, they are both very loyal friends who will stand by each other through thick and thin. Scorpio is protective and likes to be in control, so they’ll be glad to lead the way for gentle follower Pisces. In turn, the mystical, whimsical Fish will love to entertain the sometimes too-serious Scorpio — and get them to lighten up a little. Spend time doing activities together that you both enjoy; collaborating on creative projects (like writing or music), for example, will probably bring both of you a lot of joy.

While Scorpios are known for their deeply passionate and intense personalities, Pisces are more vulnerable and idealistic dreamers. Scorpios do have a tendency to be blunt, so it’s important for Pisces to feel heard and respected by their friend; Scorpio may need to rein in their truth-telling impulses for fear of hurting their pal’s feelings. Also, both signs will need to be encouraged to open up about their feelings in order to build a strong foundation of trust. Trust does not come naturally to Scorpio, so Pisces may need to wait a while to see results. Luckily, Pisces also has a tendency to withdraw into their own mind and daydreams, so it’s easier for them to understand and forgive Scorpio for their mysterious brooding sessions.

Scorpio and Pisces in Love

Pisces and Scorpio pairings may blossom into a serious and committed relationship pretty quickly. Being water signs, Scorpio and Pisces share a natural affinity with one another. (All signs of the same element will instantly feel they “get” each other, whether it be air, fire, earth, or water.) This connection gives them both an innate understanding of each other’s emotional needs and allows them to easily empathize with one another. While both signs have a need for privacy and seclusion, they can gradually grow to feel comfortable sharing their secrets with each other. However, a Pisces (or any sign, for that matter) should be wary of betraying a Scorpio man or woman’s unwavering loyalty; while Pisces’ strength is their ability to forgive and forget, a Scorpio is not likely to do either. The Scorpion can be both jealous and vengeful, so the Fish would do well to stay faithful, and swim swiftly away from any temptation. 

In the bedroom — and out of it — Scorpio and Pisces won’t be able to keep their hands off each other. They make an incredibly passionate celestial combination with great sexual compatibility. Scorpio is ruled by the genitals and is the sign most commonly associated with sex, plus both signs are deeply intuitive — so they will be able to understand each other’s needs and desires with ease. Scorpio is the more dominant partner, while Pisces is more of a nurturer. This creates a great balance, as Scorpio can provide the guidance and ferocity Pisces craves, while Pisces can provide Scorpio with the gentle, loving touch they need. They are both quite imaginative — Pisces, in particular, loves to escape into a realm of fantasy, and Scorpio will try anything twice — which makes for some exciting times behind closed doors. The level of intimacy between these two is sure to give both partners a great deal of satisfaction.

Potential Problem Areas

The downside to Scorpio and Pisces’ bond is that it can be too intense at times. A Scorpio’s magnetic energy in particular can be overwhelming for others if they don’t tone it down; and Scorp’s possessiveness may be too much for Pisces, who prefers to avoid confrontation.

Both a Pisces partner and a Scorpio partner feel deeply, so when one is hurt, the other feels it too. This can lead to a volatile cycle of emotional outbursts and grudges that can be hard to break. Both signs are also quite secretive, which isn’t always a bonus in relationships — it may lead to trust issues, and the suspicion that someone is hiding something. In addition, Pisces’ preference for escapism and Scorpio’s need for intense devotion can create a dynamic where one partner feels smothered, and the other feels abandoned.

It may take years before Scorpio or Pisces feels safe enough to reveal their most intimate selves. Scorpio’s favorite method of self-preservation is guarding their secrets, while Pisces may likewise be too afraid to expose their true identity, and will often follow the path that others set out for them instead of boldly choosing for themselves.

Since Scorpio and Pisces have deep emotional needs, both partners must make sure to show their affection in ways that speak directly to their lover’s heart. This could mean anything from a simple handwritten note to an elaborate evening of romance. Both signs will appreciate the effort, as it’ll make them feel as if they’re truly loved. Additionally, since both Scorpio and Pisces are highly creative signs, they can take advantage of that to build a deeper emotional connection; spend time brainstorming ideas for activities you can do together or devise unusual solutions to any problems that may arise. This will help keep the relationship fresh and exciting, ensuring there’s never a dull moment.

The Bottom Line on Pisces and Scorpio Love

The Scorpio-Pisces relationship is a powerful and passionate combination that can lead to a deep and lasting connection between two clear soulmates. Both signs complement each other in many ways, and they have a great deal of potential for success. However, it’s important for them to nurture the bond and work on the relationship.
