This is a great match unless other elements in their natal zodiacs are highly incompatible. The mutual sympathy between these two signs enables them to develop a very powerful bond. Scorpio and Pisces can intuit each other’s feelings and provide the emotional support each requires. In romance, the passion is strong with this pairing. However, this connection tends to be so intense that one unstable partner can easily destabilize the other.
Scorpio and Pisces have much in common, but they also have a number of complementary traits that increase the likelihood of success for both friendships and romantic partnerships. Pisces will appreciate Scorpio’s strength, particularly during stressful times when a good, solid anchor is needed. Scorpio stays cool in a crisis, which is a trait that Pisces values. Pisces, in turn, fascinates Scorpio and stimulates Scorpio’s creative energies. Pisceans have profound thoughts and feelings, which is important to this match because Scorpios loathe shallowness. In romance, this tends to be an exciting and highly compatible pairing, but it also works well in friendship because these two tend to bring out the best in each other.
Pisces is emotionally gentle, so is less likely to hurt Scorpio’s feelings. Scorpio is inclined to lash out when hurt, which can irreparably damage a relationship with a Pisces, but Pisces doesn’t usually provoke this sort of response (the exception to this rule is a Pisces with a combative rising sign such as Aries, Leo, or Sagittarius). Both Scorpio and Pisces are typically compassionate and self-sacrificing, so they are inclined to show one another kindness as required, even in difficult situations. These two are unlikely to abandon one another in a crisis, but instead show their best sides when needed by each other. Both tend to devote themselves fully to their relationships and form intense connections, so this pairing is more likely to stick than many others.
Lifestyle preferences are usually well-matched with this pair. Both signs tend toward introversion (unless their ascendants fall in more gregarious signs), and after a period of socializing, they need to spend time on their own or alone with their partners. Both require solitary, safe places where they can retreat as needed, and both usually have solo hobbies. These two individuals will often be content to spend quiet time together, pursuing their own separate interests in the same place, enjoying one another’s presence without needing to interact continuously, so they can be good roommates as well as good friends or romantic partners.
Note: There is more to astrological compatibility than sun signs alone. Other elements in a person’s natal zodiac also play a role. Ascendants (rising signs), moon signs, and other planetary placements and aspects also shape personality and affect compatibility. For example, a Capricorn with Leo rising will be more extroverted than a typical Capricorn, and a Taurus with Aries rising or the moon in Sagittarius will be more compatible with Sagittarius than a typical Taurus.
