A Pisces can fall in love with anyone. Their capacity to love and create space for others is limitless, making their compatibility with other signs a diverse one. They accept others openly and truly believe in the fairytale type of love. Pisces being a water sign is one of the more emotional signs of the zodiac and they wear their heart on their sleeve. Though it can be difficult for Pisces to settle down as they are very aware of all the fish in the sea, and they want to experience it all. They crave deep affection and transparency in a relationship and feel that their partner should be able to fulfill all of their fantasies in life which is not always possible. At the end of the day, however, Pisces has a heart that expands love and makes a relationship a heartfelt one.
When it comes to how Pisces love, they exude a sweet type of demeanor toward their partners. A Pisces has a childlike love that is very exciting to potential suitors. They want a love that is for the books, and you can often find a Pisces daydreaming about the possibilities of it all. When an evolved Pisces is in the picture, this is the type of person to be there for you rain or shine and to show you how much they love you every day. An unevolved Pisces can lead you on an emotional rollercoaster and will take some time to find their way.
All in all, Pisces compatibility is a wildcard, but once they are in love, it’s difficult for them to think of anything else.
Pisces + Aries Love Compatibility
Pisces and Aries together can either be a recipe for disaster or a recipe for success. There is more compatibility between them than noticed right away, however, their differences can often be too substantial in the long haul. Pisces and Aries operate on different playing fields. Aries is energy, and Pisces is emotion. Aries likes to always be on the go, and Pisces likes to take their time while moving through the world. They have a lot of different interests and unless they are willing to learn more about each other and try new things, then this relationship can run dry pretty quickly.
Pisces + Taurus Love Compatibility
This is a good match. Pisces and Taurus get along well, and this is one of Pisces’ best matches in Astrology. What makes this relationship work so well is the give and take here. These two are both romantics at heart, and Pisces is often swept off their feet by sensual Taurus. Pisces is compassionate, and Taurus is chill. These two aren’t one to rush each other or step on each other's toes, allowing the relationship to grow and form in its own divine time and space. Pisces and Taurus is a relationship that has all the potential to be a forever type of love and these two often make it long-term.
Pisces + Gemini Love Compatibility
Pisces and Gemini are both mutable signs, and there is an instant connection here. Whether the relationship turns into a romantic one is another story, however, you can’t deny the chemistry between Pisces and Gemini right off the bat. What makes this relationship work is their flexibility and ability to go with the flow and not put too much pressure on the relationship. The downside to this combo is that both signs are a wildcard which can lead to a chaotic relationship. Not to mention, Pisces wants to feel, and Gemini wants to think. They need to understand each other to make the relationship work.
Pisces + Cancer Love Compatibility
Pisces and Cancer have a relationship that feels like they’ve been soulmates for many lifetimes. Being together is like a breath of fresh air for them because they feel like they are finally with someone that understands them and how they feel. This relationship is a lot of fun and there is a lot of happiness between the two. The only precaution with this union is that together they can be pretty impulsive and tend to rush into this relationship. However, by taking things one step at a time, and enjoying what they are building together, this can be a truly once-in-a-lifetime love.
Pisces + Leo Love Compatibility
This is an unusual combo, but anything is possible. Pisces and Leo are either attracted to each other or immediately turned off. Leo can come off as too self-centered for Pisces and where most zodiac signs are enamored by this bold sign; Pisces doesn’t get the hype. Pisces is endearing to Leo but they immediately get the feeling that Pisces is too wishy-washy for their strong-willed selves. Pisces’ emotional world can feel too heavy at times for Leo’s spirit and they are often not on the same page. This relationship can get better over time but is not the best match for Pisces at the end of the day.
Pisces + Virgo Love Compatibility
Pisces and Virgo are the yin and yang of the zodiac. These two are opposite signs, but they both happen to be mutable signs as well which makes for a strong connection. The relationship between Pisces and Virgos is either a hit or a miss. This can be the best relationship they both have as they feel like they are each other’s other halves and like they found their soulmate. Though, these two signs often test each other without even trying as they are both coming from different directions trying to meet each other in the middle. What makes this relationship work is that they are both best friends and lovers, and they truly love and adore each other.
Pisces + Libra Love Compatibility
Pisces and Libra together is a slippery slope. They have more in common than most water and air sign duos, but the relationship can also be one that’s not as fulfilling for Pisces as they would have hoped. Both of these signs want to be adored and are both very receptive. The challenge with these two is that Pisces likes to be led in love and so does Libra. They can often feel like they aren’t getting what they need in the relationship and like there is no growth, often questioning who is going to make the first move or wondering where each other stands. They are both very compromising and understanding, however, and they can form a sweet connection overall.
Pisces + Scorpio Love Compatibility
These two believe in love at first sight, and they often experience it when they meet. Scorpio is one of the best matches for Pisces, and these two often make it to the altar. Scorpio has a way of sweeping Pisces off their feet, and Pisces appreciates Scorpio's energy of emotion yet a bit of dominance and confidence. This is a sexy combo, and these two coming together is a recipe for success. With all water and water duos, emotional impulses can get the best of them but if they are both evolved and ready for a committed relationship, then they have found a good partner for that in each other.
Pisces + Sagittarius Love Compatibility
Pisces and Sagittarius are a fun couple. This couple loves to explore life together, go on vacations, and escape into their own little world. They are fun to be around, and they prefer to keep things light. Not only are these two mutable signs, but they are both also ruled by benevolent Jupiter, making this a lucky duo. While being together they often experience profound insights, good luck, and serendipitous moments. Challenges may arise here, however, when it comes to both of these signs being free spirits as they may never settle down in a way that can bring a strong foundation to the relationship. All in all, this is an inspiring relationship for both of them.
Pisces + Capricorn Love Compatibility
Capricorn is a really good match for Pisces, and these two are often found in long-term relationships with each other. Pisces experiences harmony with Capricorn who brings the perfect balance of stability and devotion to them. Pisces brings the warmth and sensitivity into this relationship that Capricorn needs to soften up a little, and these two know how to make it work. They both are open to what they want and need within a relationship right away which helps them be on the same page and know what they are moving forward to. These two together also make great manifesters as Capricorn helps Pisces bring their vision into reality, and Pisces helps Capricorn believe in miracles.
Pisces + Aquarius Love Compatibility
Pisces and Aquarius are the oddballs of the zodiac and they have a connection because of it. These two both live life out of the ordinary, and love all things unique. They appreciate each other’s sense of style and perspective and find a lot of happiness and excitement together. Overall, air signs aren’t the best matches for Pisces, but Aquarius is the most similar to Pisces when it comes to air signs, so these two already have the upper hand there. This relationship will work if Aquarius can drop into their heart more rather than their head and if Pisces can define their values and boundaries in the relationship creating an atmosphere for honesty and stability.
Pisces + Pisces Love Compatibility
Pisces and Pisces relationships aren’t the most recommended, but they can work if the two signs in question are evolved individuals. When dating someone of the same sign as yourself, there are often a lot of tests and triggers experienced as it's like someone holding up a mirror to you constantly. If these two have already learned a lot in love and have a good sense of self, then they can understand each other and value each other and the connection altogether. Water and water combos can get messy, however, and emotions will run from high to low.

Sabrina Dhowre Elba Admits To Not Initially Knowing Who Idris Elba Was When They Met
Model and entrepreneur Sabrina Elba recently recalled the intimate moments surrounding the fateful day she first encountered her husband, Idris Elba.
The couple, who have been together since 2017, met at a jazz bar in Vancouver when Idris was working on his film Mountain Between Us. Years later, in April 2019, following a whirlwind romance, Sabrina and Idris would tie the knot in Morocco.
Since then, the pair's love story has become "couple goals" among many for various reasons. The list includes the numerous times Sabrina and Idris have showcased their love on social media. Another factor contributing to the duo's likability is that Sabrina and Idris have displayed over the years that being with the right partner can elevate one's career or passion in life.
Sabrina and Idris have collaborated professionally in several businesses, including their Coupledom podcast and skincare brand S'Able Labs. In a June interview on Jemele Hill's Unbothered podcast, the 34-year-old opened up about the events leading up to when she met Idris and how she initially didn't know who he was.
Sabrina Dhowre Elba on Meeting Idris Elba
Sabrina, who was living in Vancouver at the time, said that the same night Idris was in town, she went out to a jazz bar for an event called Slow Jam Sunday for a friend’s birthday.
Around that time, the model was getting over a breakup and claimed she wasn't interested in a relationship because of how badly her previous one ended. In a past interview, Idris revealed that he, too, just went through a breakup before meeting Sabrina.
"This is so funny. I [had] just gotten out of a really bad relationship, so I was not this person. I was like 'men are trash. They suck.' I'm literally ready to switch it on up or something because I was so over it," she said. "I come to this party with a night off at work that I prebooked because I was working literally every weekend. But it was my girlfriend's birthday party, so I was there kind of by chance."
Sabrina also revealed that, coincidently, the night she took off for her friend's birthday celebration was the same night Idris had the day off and was convinced by his stunt double to attend Slow Jam Sunday.
"Slow Jam Sundays is an amazing night in Vancouver. It's the one night I would probably go to, but you wouldn't see me out often because I was a weekend worker. I was working at restaurants and service industry, your weekends are taken up," she stated.
"Idris was filming this film in Vancouver and had one night off in Vancouver because most of it was filmed sort of up north in the mountains. His stunt double convinced him to go to Slow Jam Sundays. By chance, we were both there."
Further into the interview, Sabrina disclosed that her friend was interested in Idris at first and went to flirt with him. However, the Daddy's Little Girls star dismissed the friend's advances because Sabrina had caught his eye.
When Sabrina's friend informed her about what happened, she admitted that although she tried to put up a front for her friend's sake, the S'Able Labs CEO was happy because she thought he was also attractive. Following the discussion, Sabrina and her friend went to the section where Idris was, and the couple realized how much they had in common, from the music choices to their background.
"So I go over, and we have like one of those conversations that you just feel like you've known this person for ten years because we're singing the same songs. When a song comes on that I love, he's like, 'I love this song.' I'm like, 'what?' Like I just had this like cultural connection. He's African. I'm like,' Where are you from?'" she said.
Sabrina On Not Knowing Who Idris Was After Meeting Him
As the topic shifted to Idris' celebrity status, Sabrina explained that she didn't know who he was until after it was brought to her attention by a few people she met outside of the bar.
"When I went outside, I realized because there's a group of people there, they're like, 'Oh, you're talking to Idris Elba,'" she stated.
When asked about how well-known the actor was when they met, Sabrina shared that Idris was widely famous in America but not so much in Canada and that the one film she saw him in was the 2009 thriller Obsessed.
Sabrina would add that even after being told who Idris was, she couldn't recollect where she knew him from until her friends mentioned the movie.
"Well, so the film that I had seen was Obsessed... I feel Idris Elba now he gets recognized so much. In that moment, unless you were kind of in that zeitgeist, he was definitely a lot more popular in America," she said. "I don't think I would've known it even when they said that was him. I was trying to remember, like, my friends were like, 'yeah, he's from Obsessed.' We're like, 'Oh, yeah.'"
After figuring out who Idris was, Sabrina shared that when she re-entered the venue, she doubted a relationship would form between them given his occupation, the short timeline he would be there to shoot his movie, and the constant temptation that could flock around him due to his status. But despite Sabrina's uncertainty, they would exchange numbers before she left.
"So I went back inside, we started chatting some more, and he was like, 'Let me take your number.' I was like, 'Alright,' and then I left," she stated.
The model explained the reason why she left the event was that her friend, whose birthday she was celebrating, wanted to check out other spots. When the night was coming to an end, Sabrina hailed a taxi to go home when she received a phone call from Idris. The entrepreneur revealed that the Takers star stopped her from entering the cab and urged her to get in the car he was driving, and they spent the whole night talking until 8 a.m.
"I got in his car, and we spoke till like 8 a.m. easy. It was probably like 2 [a.m.] at that time. We just had the most intense, amazing conversation," she said. "It was the first time I ever connected with someone to the point where I was like, I went home the next day called my friends, I was like, 'I think I found my soulmate.'"
Sabrina revealed that from that fateful night, she and Idris became inseparable. The couple would be long-distance for a brief stint of their union until they acknowledged how difficult it was to maintain that type of relationship. Sabrina ultimately decided to move in with Idris although she was skeptical at first, she claimed it was one of the best decisions she's made because she found her "soulmate."
