Pisces guys: Pisces adhere to the highest of standards but when circumstances don’t work out, these guys are the greatest to party with. It was a Pisces who invented the famous slogan, “Beer: it’s not just for breakfast anymore!” Pisces is ruled by Neptune, the star–kissed tuna roll of the sea.
Grocery store: This is the strangest of all the Pisces behaviors --I have had a chance to observe. Imagine this other-worldy sign, suddenly, caught in a moment of panic, or so it seems, rushing, in a very dedicated manner, checking the list, sampling the goods, thumping the cantaloupe and watermelons, then scurrying at a frantic pace, off in another direction. The only explanation I've come up with so far is that Pisces is opposite Virgo in the wheel. Now, why would a Virgo side to Pisces suddenly emerge, but only a grocery store? I can't explain it fully, but there must be some latent Virgo in there, somewhere, and this is the only time it ever seems to exert itself. The normally dreamy, diffident Pisces gets turned into the ultimate shopping assault weapon: Mission, Direction, Control, Seek and Acquire.
Shopping at midnight: Again, first hand experience is the best in a situation like this. After midnight, most Pisces begin to shine. Something about the darkest hours of the night really brings about a subtle change in the Pisces' body chemistries. I watched as a Pisces entered the Wal-Mart at 2:00 AM with a whole paycheck freshly cashed. Around three hours later, this Pisces emerged with all manner of goodies. Food stuffs, canned soda, some new clothes, a bathing suit, a case of motor oil, some coloring books, new crayons. The list was as disparate and unconnected as possible. What seemed more important, however, was the fact that several hours had passed. It wasn’t just a shopping trip, it was like a trip to the entertainment park. It can be argued that every Pisces has the capacity to be an entertainment park, but that's just my subjective observation.
Brick wall: When a fixed, immovable object confronts a Pisces, it's not like it's any great challenge. Problems and obstacles which provide hours of frustration for a normal sign just don't seem to bother the Pisces. The Pisces comes up to the brick wall and sort of transmogrifies right through it. I guess it's like the old Star Trek "Transporter" everything dissolves, and suddenly, the Pisces is on the other side of the wall. How do they do that?
Bait: Mystic Zara Spook—This lure combines the best of all possible combinations for cooking a marvelous trophy - sized Pisces. In order to land this Pisces lunker, a Zara Spook which is just mysterious enough to work. Since this is derived from a classic lure with two hooks, you can be sure that your slippery Pisces stays hooked. Just about any bait will attract a Pisces, but it sometimes takes two hooks to hold them on the line. Of course, the traditional Zara Pooch lures also make excellent earrings.
Body part: Feet.
Pisces female and ....
Aries: No no no. It will not work. It will never work. You two certainly don’t belong together because, let’s face it, that Aries guy is brash, arrogant, obnoxious, he says a lot of things but means nothing, and he’s basically not any good for you. I’m sure I’ve missed a few points with my sweeping generalizations, but I can’t think of what they are and it doesn’t matter.
That being said, let’s really look at this relationship. I’ve got a couple of examples on file where this does work, in the real world. So maybe some of the old textbooks are wrong. First of all, there is more to a chart than the mere sun sign, and there are some pretty good connections between the Aries and the Pisces. But there is a quality found only in a Pisces fish that can unnerve and bother an Aries ram to no end. It’s that intangible quality, that little “I don’t know” thing that drives an Aries insane.
To be sure, when you land an Aries guy, you’ve got your hands full. All that fire is going to show up as passion. Add Aries fire to Pisces Water and you’ve got steam. That’s good. So yes, there is a steamy side to this relationship. The problems begin with the mutable nature of Pisces, that inability to make a decision right away. I’ve always loved a Pisces, so it’s not a problem for me. But for an Aries, there is a point in the decision making process where he is ready for either a yes or a no, and the vacillating Pisces is still being a little coy with her answer. That’s when you have to have a degree of understanding for the male Aries. He doesn’t care if it is right or wrong, he just needs a nod yes, or a maybe a nod no. Something. And subtlety is generally lost on an Aries guy.
What I’ve seen work with these two signs is that the Pisces starts to draw a picture as soon as the Aries asks a question. The answer is forthcoming, in good Pisces time, but the Aries needs a direct approach. So start with phrasing the question back to him, begin working on an answer immediately. Doesn’t matter if it’s the right answer, just get something out and on paper immediately, the sooner the better. Start filling up the canvas of you answer. Start with big brush strokes and begin to fine tune the painting as you go. You might not know, yourself, just where you’re headed, but you’re getting there.
These signs are right next to each in the wheel. That’s good. But the Aries is at the beginning of an evolutionary cycle, and the Pisces is at the end of the cycle. But that doesn’t make you the teacher, although, at times, you’re going to feel like you need to the patience of a teacher in order to get your point across.
Every Aries person I’ve worked with is a sucker for a little bit of affection. Use that concept of affection in order to gain his trust and understanding. You guys might learn something from each other, and that makes this work well.
Taurus: Let’s look at how a Pisces female will relate to a Taurus guy. See, what we’ve got is the most grounded of fixed signs, after all, Taurus is the Fixed Earth Sign, and the Pisces female is bound to be all emotions which flow just like that water which the element that one would associate with Pisces. In some astrology circles, the comment is that Water and Earth make mud. But here at FGS HQ, we’ve discovered that this can be a good combination.
This relationship is not without some troubles. Some of the inherent problems with this combination is the fact that the Taurus is accused of being stubborn. That’s not really the case, although I’ve wasted far too much breath with Taurus individuals about this problem they have, the bit about being stubborn. And the Pisces, being mutable and all, is much more forgiving. The trick is to not let the Taurus wait too long on anything. Given the opportunity, this so–called stubborn streak is more like a guy standing there, saying, “Well, I’m thinking about it.” In other words, he might not be prone to making fast decisions, unless it comes to compromising yourself on a first date. But that’s pretty much a guy thing more than just a Taurus thing.
There is an upside to this relationship. That Fixed Sign thing, that Taurus stability, that Taurus sensuality, all of those factors come into the play. And this side combines well with the Pisces libido. The other attraction is that the Taurus guy will serve as an anchor for the Pisces gal. Something to keep her rooted. Or, something for her roots to grow into, as the case may be.
Gemini: So the Pisces female has herself a Gemini guy? What are you two going to do? The Pisces is the one who is further along when it comes to “karmic path” because the sign is the last sign in the zodiac and the Gemini is frequently a much younger sort. And, Gemini men are playful, artistic, and pleasing to the eye.
But do all these qualities make it a long–term relationship? That’s for you to decide.
Pisces usually require some degree of stability in their lives in order to have the most successful of relationships. And while I am personally enamored of Gemini’s [many Gemini’s to be precise], I’m not sure that you can share the same long–lasting love for them that I’ve developed. It’s a tough call.
There are some swans on the lake here in town—it looks more like a pond than a lake, really—and these are very graceful creatures. However, there’s a feeding spot where the swans gather to beg food from various people passing by. Here, those graceful critters get downright ugly. They squawk, they bicker and they fight amongst themselves as they jockey for the best position. They go from the personification of grace to the personification of adolescent males. I half way expect to see the swans line up in gang colors some time, too.
That explains the problem with Mr. Gemini, he has a quality which can sometimes shock your system as he switches gears so fast.
Cancer: It works. It works well. Its counterpart seems to be stellar. There is a little bit of lore which surrounds the Cancer guy, and it’s best that you back up to some traditional astrology texts and reference this material before you embark on a journey with this guy. Cancer is the sign of the Crab, and like his archetype, he has a tough exterior shell. Some times you feel like he feels like he is retreating from you. I’ve spent many long hours attempting to console Cancer guys. It ain’t pretty. You can see the lines of hurt in their faces, you can almost feel their pain, but not quite. It’s almost like you want to grab one of them, shake him, and suggest that he just “get over it.” My preferred method of consolations usually involves large quantities of cheap Tex–Mex cuisine. Works well around here.
But getting that Cancer guy to get over it is a little difficult. Easier said than done. The term moody is often bantered about concerning these guys. That’s just not fair, and it doesn’t do him justice. He is, however, emotional. But the problem we all face these days is that he’s so in touch with these emotions that he is afraid to let them come to the surface. He’s often afraid to share anything more than a little joy or a little happiness with you. That much he can show you. It’s just that terrible male hurt that he carries like a cross.
As a sensitive Pisces, you can help ease his burden a little. But you’re going to find that this relationship, in the best of situations, will be a little taxing on your system because you’ve got to spend a lot of time coaxing information out of him. And in the worst of times, he just seems to clam up. It’s a good thing every decent Pisces girl I’ve ever encountered is a little psychic because, on a bad hair day, your Cancer guy is going to expect you to intuit what is wrong.
This goes against the basic texts found on the self–help bookshelves. Well, sometimes astrology can answer questions that can’t be answered otherwise. If it looks good, and you’re up to the Cancer taste test, then I suggest you go for it. But try a little homework, first.
Leo: This is another one of those questionable relationships. But then, at the risk of sounding rhetorical, in the case with a Pisces woman, isn’t every relationship questionable? Of course it is. Now, this is real simple. Mr. Leo is a Fixed Fire Sign. He’s associated with the fifth House in zodiac talk. He’s a brilliant man. Or a brilliant boy because he will always seem to have that innocent look about him. Especially, when he’s guilty. Then he really looks innocent.
Pisces Girls shouldn’t get hooked up with Leo males because it’s a very fixed sign (Leo) versus a highly emotional sign (Pisces). You feel feelings. Leo guys are passionate. I wasn’t about to suggest that a Leo guy wouldn’t have feelings, in fact, he may profess them to you at great length. That’s part of the appeal. But that’s also part of the problem. While my dear, sweet, kind and gentle Pisces woman is busy emoting, the Leo guy is making a big deal out of those feelings.
Life with a Leo is a wonderful experience, especially is you have some degree of fire that coordinates well with his passion. Then this is a combination that works great. But for the overall appeal, it tends to have a short run because despite many of his great attributes, learning how to be just plain and simply supportive of your motional well–being is hard for a Leo.
If this is a dating scenario, it works out pretty good. But if you are looking for a longer–term commitment, although he is very capable of providing you with a long term promise, the delivery comes up a little short. It’s the nurturing that a Leo usually can’t provide. He’s the Lion, the King, the Grandmaster of all. And sometimes, a Pisces wants to feel like she is the center of the universe, too. There are tricks which prove to be very effective when dealing with a Leo, but you might get a little tired of the game of cat and mouse, especially since it’s your feeling that get used as the mouse most often.
Virgo: You know, as a decent Pisces girl, you might just want to ask yourself, “Self, why did I get involved with a Virgo guy?” because, although them Virgo fellers have many fine qualities, some of them finer qualities are going to be lost on a good little Pisces gal. Sounds patronizing, and it is.
Virgo men have this annoying habit of frowning at everything. Even when life is very good, the Virgo male behaves as if there was something wrong, some unidentified problem. Like life’s not perfect enough, even though, a relationship with a Pisces can be perfect.
The appealing characteristic to this relationship is the fact the sun signs oppose each other, and you know how the old saying goes, “opposites attract.” Ever play with magnets? Pull a few off the icebox and try sticking them together. Either they will instantly bond as if they are mated for life (the magnets) or you have to push really hard in order to make them even get close, almost as if they have this natural repellent attitude towards each other.
That’s the classic example of how you get along with a Virgo. Either it’s really, really good, or there will be this instant affinity for hating each other. Another way to look at this mutual loathing for each other is what I call “hate at first sight” which is very much like love at first sight but more along the lines of those magnets which cannot abide being next to each other. Fortunately, both Virgo and Pisces are mutable signs. The bad news is that this means there is liable to be a volatile element at work within this relationship. Can it work? Sure. What’s it going to take? Well, all I can say is that it’s a good thing that Pisces are so forgiving of the rest of us 11 signs....
Libra: Libra Men. What can be said about them that hasn’t already been observed? There’s a quality that will inexorably draw a Pisces to him, though. I happen to succumb to the appeal of the Libra guy pretty well. They can sucker me faster than anything. It’s the look, the talk, the walk, something he says, and I’m not even contemplating dating one of them. It’s that effervescent Libra quality....
Ever have a can of Dr. Pepper you forget and leave open in the icebox? You were going to drink it, and then got sidetracked, and forgot about it for two or three days? Your Libra guy is just like that. Don’t pay him any attention for a while, and he seems to go flat. And just like that Dr. Pepper, he refuses any effort to get shook up. It just doesn’t work.
Your relationship with a Libra is going to be like that. Don’t give it some attention, and it’s not going any place. It loses its fizz, the sparkle has gone out, and it doesn’t seem like there is anything your poor Pisces self can do about it.
The angle between these two signs is a strange one. It is possible to develop a certain amount of poise within this relationship, and once that position is obtained, you can make it work. But don’t forget that you are going to need a little bit of daily attention to this in order to make it work. You can’t just let him sit there and have it all go flat. That will never work.
Scorpio: This is one of my favorite relationships to see. Is it good? It’s usually very, very good. There is about one tenth of the group I’ve looked at where this doesn’t work out. Out of that population, it usually has a lot to do with conflicting Moon signs and various other transits that occur during a normal lifetime. But on a whole, this is a good one.
Water and water isn’t always good, but what I’ve watched with this one is that there’s a special link that seems to develop. Poor old Scorpio guys get picked on for way too much, things like “they’re all so mean and vindictive,” and, “he’s such a control freak.” The terms don’t seem to apply in this relationship. Since both signs are water, there’s an emotional bound that forms between the two. And the Pisces inherits a little bit of the personality traits from the Scorpio. The Scorpio, to flip the metaphor around, also seems to pick up some of the finer Pisces qualities as well. In the long run, as the two get to know each other, it begins to work in truly beautiful way. It’s a pleasure to watch.
There is the one problem about too much water because it can be a place where emotions run too high, a situation where it’s just too much baggage. But even in that scenario, I’ve seen this one work out pretty well. It takes a little bit of time, and I must admit, for all the negative things said about either sign, they are both patient enough to wait this one out. I’ve watched as Pisces girl and a Scorpio guy have waited years before making a commitment. I realize that 10 years may seem like a long for a courtship, but you know, neither the Pisces nor the Scorpio can ever be too careful about these things.
Sagittarius: There will always be one Pisces girl who will automatically assume that this is about her. No, it’s not. But dear, we will always have Paris. That would Paris, Texas, in case you ain’t up on geography these days.
This is one of those relationships that works against the odds. The odds are figured because we’re looking at two fairly flexible sun signs here, two signs that are a little at odds with each other. Two sun signs that make a pejorative angle to each together. And at its heart, Mr. Sagittarius tends to be a little on the flaky side. Well, then, so does Miss Pisces. I’m back at looking at these two like they are very good friends, and any relationship should start with that. However, there is still much which needs to be addressed about this relationship.
Mr. “Life should always be an adventure” can sometimes wear a little thin on the kindhearted Pisces soul. And one can only be so spiritual when dealing with acerbic academic redneck fishing types. Not every Sagittarius is like that, but there’s always a hint there is something waiting over there, and that’s innately appealing for a short period of time. In a longer period, though, it’s not nearly as much fun.
On some occasions, the poor Pisces girl is going to have some trouble with the Sagittarius. “Can’t you just go to the grocery store and not make it a foray into the jungle?” she will moan. His constant striving for one more event, one more grandiose gesture, one more trip can drive her a little crazy at times. It is fun, but you can take this being wacky all the time stuff just a little too far. Being a Sagittarius means we are always trying to see what a “little too far” really means.
If any sign is going to have the patience necessary for Sagittarius, it could well be a Pisces. Of course, our antics might wear you out from time to time.
The appeal here, the straight, physical charm of each sign has a profound effect on affections. It can last for a long time. Just remember that Sagittarius guys are usually better friends than anything else.
“Hey baby, who loves you?”
Capricorn: To be honest, I have to love both these signs. There is a quality, though, in this relationship that might cause some problems on that long and lonely highway of life. In fact, as long as you are dating a Capricorn guy, you’re going to feel like the Highway Department has abandoned maintenance on this section of the road. The road with a Capricorn is long, it winds around a bit, and there are some pretty big potholes. In fact, on more than one occasion, you’re going to find your sweet Pisces self wondering just when you turned off the Freeway of Love and headed down this rock strewn, obstacle laden dirt road of Capricorn land.
It’s not always that bad. If you were a car, though, I would see a Pisces as a Cadillac, not Jeep or similar all–terrain vehicle. Ever notice that a disproportionate number of Texas Ranchers prefer the Cadillac brand over any other vehicle? Know why? It’s a tough car. It can take the abuse that even an old truck sometimes can’t take. That’s one tough car. And because you’re a Pisces, not only are you tough, but you’re pretty, too. Just like that fancy sedan.
The problem with this relationship is that question, are you actually up to the task of taming a Capricorn guy? That’s the positive spin. The bad news is that you’re not sure you want to be up for the taming of this guy. That’s the negative spin. It’s like that dirt road of love, it’s not all smooth–sailing. The ride can be rough at times. In fact, there are times when you might get despondent and just want to turn back. The problem with a Capricorn guy is that this is a narrow road, and when it gets to be the worst possible conditions, you’re going to find that there is no place to turn around. No way out. And backing down that road is even worse than trying to push on.
If you are involved with a Cap guy, make sure that you have a tow–rope. Make sure you carry a shovel, maybe some extra supplies. It can be very good. There will be days, maybe even long stretches like that bit of road in West Texas that doesn’t have a curve for over hundred miles. Then there will be the detours. The potholes, the washboard surfaces, those sorts of things. It’s both good and bad, and it depends on what kind of luxury you demand in your relationship that determines the quality of this ride.
Aquarius: Oh no. Oh yes. Maybe. It’s not a relationship without some merit, and to be truthful, I’ve seen it successful more often than not. But there is a small problem with an Aquarius male, and that goes back to the basic difficulty with the Aquarius sign itself: aloof, apart, different, diffident. But no sooner is that said, than the Aquarius, rising to the bait of the situation, sets out to prove us all wrong. And that’s where this relationship can work.
It depends on a few elements in a chart, not just the sun sign alone, but with an Aquarian male, you’ve got a chance. The chance depends on his ability to transcend the innate difficulties associated with this sign. And, to a large part, this is also dependent on the compassion and understanding of the Pisces. Equivocate your needs. Explain what you want. Ask for what you want. Ask for a little more than you need, too. This insures that you get some of what you want. Remember that the Aquarius male loves his brain, and brain games are the best way to hook them up.
There’s a refreshing and unusual quality found in this sign’s basic make up. Don’t be afraid to reverse roles, either. It’s also a sign that depends on certain immutable desires. Be very careful before putting big changes into action. Tread carefully, but don’t be afraid to walk.
Get used to the fact that he’s “thinking about it” at the moment. He will demonstrate his care and concern eventually. Maybe not fast enough, but with good communication, this is workable.
Pisces: It wasn’t supposed to work. It wasn’t a good idea. But that’s never stopped a Pisces because, let’s face it, a Pisces can make anything work if they want to.
I’ve seen this unlikely relationship actually work better than most because of the similarity between the basic compassionate nature of both parties. Not long ago, I ran into a Pisces pair, and it was wonderful. Happy, blissful, and probably not very well grounded, but then, like I’ve suggested before, reality might be a little overrated. It’s not like this relationship between two Pisces is not based in the real world, it’s just that the average Pisces can usually detect a minimum of four dimensions, as compared to the three that most of us work with. Maybe four, maybe five, maybe, hey, who’s bothering to count, and isn’t that numbering system just an artificial way of trying to impose one kind of order on their version of reality, anyway? See? It just doesn’t matter to a Pisces.
There’s one problem with this idyllic scenario. Occasionally, a Pisces guy will try to interrupt this dreamlike state by injecting some of the normal, day–to–day reality stuff. Don’t let him do it. Doesn’t work, and those concerns will gradually lift, given enough time.
If it is a Pisces and Pisces relationship, though, consult an astrologer, I can think of one I would recommend, and see what he has to say about moon signs for you two. That’s going to be an important issue in this relationship because dear sweet Pisces can be so sensitive.
