What makes them?
This union is inclined to dial up the Pisces female’s natural vulnerability to maximal ‘damsel in distress’ capacity, with the Aries male more than willing to step into the role of Knight in Shining Armor that he was likewise made for.
What breaks them?
Rather than the Pisces female tempering the periodic hotheadedness of the Aries male, while he in turn could encourage her to assert herself more effectively, there is the risk of both partners shape-shifting into veritable caricatures of themselves, with the Pisces female driven into total submission to what may become a very controlling Aries ‘boss’, the development of which she has unwittingly fostered.
Can it work between Pisces Woman and Aries Man?
This passionate pairing can certainly work, though both will need to be vigilant not to fall too zealously into their natural roles. The Aries male is your textbook alpha while the Pisces woman epitomizes femininity – this sexual dualism brings them together in the most natural of ways and so can offer the possibility of balance through inter-mutual learning; conversely, it may lead to such an excessive degree of asymmetry in their dynamic that separation becomes inevitable.
As first sign of the zodiac, the outgoing and enthusiastic Aries man has a zest for life matched by no other, his vigorous approach quite unlike that of the Pisces female, who as the twelfth and final sign adopts a more introspective and relaxed stance toward existence. The pair will most likely come together under conditions that establish a continuing pattern in their relationship dynamic, with the Aries male taking the lead and the Pisces female following. In fairness, the Pisces woman’s tender and gentle feminine allure was likely consciously turned up a notch so as to draw the Aries man to her in the first place, and he is indeed naturally prone to finding her vulnerability intoxicatingly appealing. With characteristic machismo, he will aspire to shield this fragile creature from the world and fight her battles for her, a promise of chivalry that even the most independent Pisces female will find near-impossible to resist. Quite honestly, she will delight in feeling protected as if some delicate princess, and her consequent gratitude and devotion will augment the Aries male’s natural sense of manly heroism.
They will however need to take care to see that their distinctly sex-segregated roles are not diminished to disagreeable versions of the male/female stereotypes, which could eventuate in the Aries male indulging his warrior spirit too much – possibly not merely with wars waged for the more passive Pisces, but against her.
Guarding against this is not his sole responsibility either, for the Pisces female can be prone to voicelessly tolerating too much, potentially becoming something of an acquiescent doormat to the Aries man’s demands, passions and tempers, which paradoxically serves to inflame them all the more. Both must therefore learn to give and take fairly, which is indeed possible to accomplish even within a traditional gender dichotomy.
Aries is an action-oriented, practical sign, and defending the sensitive Pisces woman can provide him with a sense of usefulness, especially if he can teach her some self-defense tactics in the process. Ideally, she will concurrently coax out the Aries man’s softer side during their private moments, when she can show him the strength intrinsic to exposing one’s vulnerability. He may then reveal the wounds of his spirit to receive healing through her love and compassion, in turn providing her with a sense of purpose. Hence the greatest gift that these two can give one another lies in meeting their spouse halfway, whereby some of the Aries man’s self-assertive fire will rub off on the Pisces female, while her calm and understanding approach may in turn give him pause for thought in situations which merit greater reflection.
The Aries man and Pisces female do also share some common ground. While their approach to action varies greatly, both are fierce defenders of the underdog, with Aries prepared to fight courageously for the disenfranchised while Pisces will take such souls under her wing and nurture them to the best of her ability. And though the two may have modes of communication which differ dramatically, both the Aries man and Pisces woman are deeply feeling, emotionally expressive individuals with a strong sense of the romantic, producing a sexual bond that is likely to be exceptionally steamy and passionate, heightened all the more by the complex emotional responses they elicit in each other.
This partnership can work both in spite of and due to the pair’s inherent differences (which can prove complementary), in addition to the similarities shared. In truth, it might even be said that the romantic union of Aries male and Pisces female is such a perfectly archetypical example of yin/yang, masculine/feminine energies, that they are destined to make better lovers than friends.
