Quality and Element: Fixed Air and Mutable Fire

Off World Lovers

Aquarius and Pisces are the wrap up signs of the Zodiac. To get their natures, understand that both are transpersonal. They are here to live out the dreams and visions of the human family. They might do this as visionaries, artists, stylists or proprietors. They both bring a touch of the elevated or enchanted, to their surroundings.

This makes them sympatico, as they sense a similarly tuned-in outlook. Both are not so impressed by the usual worldly markers of success. They are plugged in to a different kind of spiritual GPS system. Both want to contribute to the healing and evolution of all life. And this is where they find common ground.

Mind and Heart

Aquarius and Pisces are chums on the Zodiac, but different rhythms and elements means there can be clashes. Aquarius is an air sign, and notorious for being coolly detached. Pisces is a water sign, and very impressionable. One cold look from the Waterbearer in full winter chill mode, makes sensitive Pisces go into hiding, or swim away.

On the flipside, Pisces emotionality can make Aquarius feel like a fish out of water. They're literally not in their element! The Waterbearer's medium is currents (ideas) and vibes, not subjective feelings. If Aquarius has an open heart, and is not afraid of drowning in the depths of Pisces, these differences can be overcome.

Merging Worlds

Aquarians are friendly in a universal, detached way, covering a lot of ground socially. The Pisces nature is sensitive, and geared toward smaller, more intimate friend circles. This is obvious from the get-go. Aquarius chooses places for dates with a buzz, while Pisces is drawn to more atmospheric environs.

Aquarius craves social engagement, which translates to meeting lots of people. Pisces is easily overwhelmed in crowds, and wants to feel you out, in a rare (in our world) intimate public place. A compromise could be a quaint cafe that's situated for people watching. Both signs appreciate the unique, the artisan, and prefer one-offs over chains, for dining and everything else.

Each person is a universe of emotions, impressions, ideas, and Pisces is eager to plunge in. The impersonal vibe of Aquarius is foreign to the empathic Pisces, who craves real heart-to-hearts with those they love. Aquarius is alarmed by the urge to merge of Pisces, finding it a threat to their sense of personal freedom. The Waterbearer might not know how to relate to the Pisces feelers. And yet, Pisces intuits this, and finds ways to bridge the gap.

Creative Collaborators

Pisces is a creative type whose medium is often symbolic images of the imagination. Often they're very right brained. Aquarius tends toward logic, and conceptual thinking. Both love the freedom to experiment, but Pisces tends to follow the inspiration of the heart, while Aquarius is sparked in the mind.

Aquarius deals directly with universal themes, while Pisces finds a doorway to the universal through the personal. In some cases, they're literally on different wavelengths.

Pisces is sentimental and affectionate, while Aquarians prefer everyone to leave a personal space cushion. Pisces will long to feel a deep bond with Aquarius, something that remains out of reach. Aquarius will champion the creative dreams stirring within the Pisces soul. And they'll show integrity in the relationship. But it likely won't satisfy the longing of Pisces to swim together in the deep end of Love.

Aquarius is a bit of a loner among the multitudes, and may be out and about, when Pisces craves companionship. And yet, Pisces is the ultimate recluse. There are paradoxes in this pairing and much will depend on a sense of timing -- are they ready to meet each other half way?

Aquarius goes off on a tangent, and this is a mark of their uniqueness. But Pisces won't always understand when the Waterbearer goes missing. Aquarius finds the Piscean emotional needs to be stifling. Both need plenty of space to grow in unexpected directions.

With the willingness to deal openly with all these differences, it could evolve into a nurturing bond.

Beloved astrologer Linda Goodman (an Aries) wrote of the Pisces-Aquarius love connection in her book of poetry, Venus Trines Midnight.

The Fish Meets the Water Bearer

We searched for each other
in the most unlikely places,
among the most unlikely people,

And when our paths finally crossed,
it was for reasons so entangled
in our daily bread,
and the usual trespasses

That we might not even have noticed,
except for that faint quiver
of wonder
like a passing chill
from the night air

We loved.

And the closest we've come,br> to explaining why,

Is Because it was you,
and because it was I.
