The Scorpio guy and Pisces gal speak to each other with their eyes. They envelop each other in a private atmosphere, with a secret language. 

When the trust is there, it's a paradise of closeness and intensity. Both crave depth and honesty, no matter the cost. 

But if trust is lost, paradise turns into a hell on Earth, with a lot of overwrought emotions and suspicion. Pisces women are sensitive and often turn to escapism, for relief. She absorbs the feeling tones and psychic impressions of her intimate partners and has to choose very wisely.

The Scorpio man is often emotionally cool at first, but can become very bonded, and possessively so at times. He might take her spacy attitude as being careless, and not find anything to hold onto. Like other fixed signs, he's got to know he's investing in something real, and stable. 

The Pisces woman is a child of the ocean, and just as choppy with her moods. Young Pisces also struggle with self-esteem and even having a sense of self at all. The Scorpio man can be that strong presence in her life, that helps her cope and find traction for her dreams. 

She—Pisces in Love

He—Scorpio in Love

Scorpio in Love: Sexually confident, private, hungry, driven, tempestuous, loyal, profound.

She and He

Both Scorpio and Pisces are water signs. and therefore emotional and magnetic. Both are super psychic, imaginative, and able to sense the emotional truth of any situation. Scorpio is the sign of sex, making the male the lustiest of creatures. His desire for self-control is often at odds with his voracious sexual appetite.

The Scorpio man has a loaded presence, which the intuitive Pisces woman can sense. The Scorpio soul lesson is how he can come to terms with what's dark, repressed, too hot to handle. The Pisces woman picks up on these shadow areas and meets them with compassion, empathy, big accepting eyes.

She might be romanced by the dangerous, bad boy: "who I can save/redeem with my love." For a naive Pisces woman, whose boundaries are fuzzy, this can lead to a lot of hurt feelings, a loss of dignity, and a sense of sacrificing of her self. If her emotional life is churned up, and she's overwhelmed, it behooves her to get some "Me" time. Both Scorpio and Pisces thrive with lots of time alone, to calm the waters, do art, get some psychic distance.

Slow Courtships Rock

Scorpio man is hard to get close to. He has security clearances above top secret that few reach. The sexual attraction between Scorpio and Pisces can hasten the deed before either is psychically prepared for what's opened with Pandora's Box.

A Pisces woman is naturally desirable to a Scorpio man. She retains her mystique and gains his respect when she stays in contact with her own inner compass. Keep your life full and surround yourself with supportive girlfriends, Pisces woman. Know your limits, and avoid merging too soon, before you've tested the waters.

Oceans of Love

The same depths that make Scorpio and Pisces compatible are what pull them under. Honesty and self-knowledge overcome times of drowning in your own emotional baggage. Both signs deal in dark matter, the infinite, and the shadowy unconscious. Both have tendencies to addiction and to losing all objective sense of what's going on.

The Scorpio man has a jealous, possessive streak and Pisces too easily goes with the flow. If the Pisces woman is a pushover or a doormat, things go south pretty quickly.

And both have a profound capacity to transmute (shapeshift) what's raw and seemingly beyond reach within the psyche. Each draws out the imaginative world of the other, making them great collaborators in the arts, raising a family, living a life with meaning.

If a Scorpio man is driven to dominate, this can lead to a downward spiral. But any dark drive is manageable when there are trust and mutual respect. A strong commitment to the growth of the other—no matter what is revealed—keeps the love juices fresh and flowing.
