Personality Traits of Pisces
Like Gemini (The Twins), Pisces is also a dual zodiac sign represented by two fish swimming in opposite directions or tail-to-tail. Dual signs always have complex and often conflicting influences that shape their personalities. In the case of Pisces, they often have to find a way to balance their drive to be whimsical and creative with the demands of also having to live and survive in the real world.
Pisces is ruled by Neptune which in astrology is a planet associated with dreams, creativity and mystery. For this reason, Pieces often like to pursue interests related to their creative abilities such as art, music, philosophy or literature. In fact, these interests can sometimes consume their personal lives if they are not careful to keep one foot firmly set in reality as well. On the upside, when a Pisces is able to channel their creative drive productively they can often be unstoppable!
Pisces are also known for being naturally intuitive and highly empathetic to the feelings of others. If someone is feeling low in spirits, a Pisces will usually be the first to pick up on their feelings and offer to lend a hand. Pisces are extremely kind and generous and they make highly caring and dependable friends. Pisces are also very sensitive and emotional themselves, so people who are their friends tend to be highly protective of them in return.
Pisces is also a Water sign. Like water, their thoughts and emotions are fluid and always in motion. Although this tendency means they can be sometimes be indecisive or even scattered brained, it also makes them highly adaptable to most social situations where they make new friends easily and get along with others extremely well.
Pisces are gentle by nature and prefer to live in an idealized world which is free of stress or conflict. They do not always make the best leaders. While they will rise to the occasion to help a friend or loved one, they generally will not voluntarily put themselves in a difficult situation if it somehow can otherwise be avoided.

Best Pisces Love Matches: Scorpio, Cancer, Pisces
Pisces and Scorpio Love Compatibility
When a Pisces and Scorpio form a partnership together what usually results is a nurturing relationship overflowing with love and generosity. These two signs have an intuitive understanding of one and other that just seems to flow naturally on its own. Given time and some patience such a relationship will only grow in strength as both partners open up more and let their love and trust for one and other deepen.
The true basis for their success though lies more in their differences than in their similarities. Scorpios are highly pragmatic and rational thinkers. This influence keeps Pisces' highly emotional and often whimsical side grounded and well in check.
Pisces and Cancer Love Compatibility
Both Pisces and Cancer have highly sensitive and deeply romantic dispositions. When these two Water signs fall in love, expect an outpouring of emotions. There is nothing that either of these two signs desire more in the world than to be showered with love and appreciation and do the same in return. As a couple they will respect and understand each other flawlessly which should lead to happy and mutually nurturing life together.
There is; however, an urgent need for one partner to assume a practical and realistic role as well if the relationship is to remain healthy and vibrant over the long run. This will most likely have to be the Cancer since they tend to be slightly more pragmatic Pisces. If not, there is a real risk that codependency issues could arise which can cause the relationship to become dysfunctional.
Pisces and Pisces Love Compatibility
A Pisces and a Pisces can make a great couple as there tends to naturally be a deep emotional bond between them. These are also two highly creative individuals who should find plenty of fertile ground to explore together. They may even create a perfect fantasy world for themselves that they build together as a couple.
While a Pisces and Pisces can make a great match, there are a few areas where they need to exercise caution if their relationship is to remain healthy over the long run. For one, their extreme mutual empathy for one and other can become self-destructive if both partners allow themselves to become mired in each other's sorrow. For another, while exploring a creative fantasy life together can be a lot fun, it can also get out of hand if taken to an extreme. To avoid either of these two potential pitfalls, one or both partners must always remain firmly grounded. This may not always be so easy for two Pisces.
