Learn about our Editorial Process Updated on 04/17/18 Aries is a romantic at heart, albeit one with a short attention span! Aries burns hot but not for long! Aries is rather "what you see is what you get," while Pisces has a soulful, complex nature that is very affected by the vibes and emotional clouds in the immediate environment. How well Aries and Pisces will depend greatly on the circumstances in which they meet. The Ram gets fired up and in chase mode, fully captivated by the enigmatic Pisces nature. The ardent desires of the Aries meet the Pisces ideal of epic-level romance. Both can become starry-eyed over each other and fully commit to spontaneously falling in love. The knight in shining armor aspect of the warrior Aries is activated, to aid a saucer-eyed soul born under the sign of the Fishes. Aries takes the lead, which is usually okay with Pisces, who shows different sides with each new dating situation. Aries has a lot of physical vitality and can give the more languid Pisces a boost. However, if Pisces is in a reflective mood, that Aries zeal can be totally overwhelming! Aries in love is urgent, and flame up, then peter out. Pisces in love has elusive moods, and are more indirect in conversation. They compliment each other as Pisces is a little dreamy, otherworldly, and Aries is lusty for real experiences that make them feel fully alive. Full-On and Elusive Pisces is often trusting, naive and impressionable in love. This is a favorable set of traits, when they're met with proper respect, and are valued. But Pisces in the hands of a domineering Ram potentially leads to dark places. The direct and forceful style of Aries becomes wounding for Pisces, who defends itself by becoming elusive, veiled, diffuse. What comes to mind is a persistent creature looking for the pearl in the oyster (Pisces). The way Aries goes about it — full-on and at times emotionally insensitive — brings out the Pisces' instinct for hiding the treasure. Things go wrong when Aries pushes too hard for the elusive Pisces to take a stand on something. Aries may find Pisces to be wishy-washy, lacking in courage or personal drive. Pisces is turned off by the rough words of Aries and the lack of emotional nuance. Aries likes to be in the mix, while Pisces find being around lots of people to be an energy-sapping downer. If Aries can soften their edges and Pisces provides enough excitement, this pair has a lot to offer each other. Keep in mind that these two signs are neighbors on the Zodiac. There's more natural harmony when Aries and Pisces are near each other on the degree scale (early Aries and late Pisces). Also, look to other planets, especially Venus, Mars and the Moon, to get a bigger picture on compatibility between the Ram and the Fishes. Does this resonate?

Love Works: live and let live attitudes; highly creative; looks for sunny side and sees the glass as half-full; shares a belief in fresh starts; cheers on the underdog. Love Bites: Aries' way scares away skittish Pisces; Ram frustrated with chaotic, helpless or "lost" child Pisces; Aries too blunt and wounding for emotionally vulnerable Pisces; Aries doesn't give Pisces space to wander aimlessly, daydream, be with a muse.

Aries and Pisces Love Story Reader Tparrett writes, "I've been married to my Aries man for 17 years now and most of the other responses are just so correct it's eerie. It's not easy when he's the dominant type and I and the emotional type. But he's my husband, father to my kids, provider, confidant, protector, sparing partner, lover, BFF, soulmate. I could go on but you get the point. If you find a good one its worth all the hardships."
