In middle school, I got mildly interested in astrology, horoscopes, and the like. I checked out a few books from the county library, but it never got much beyond that.
Still, I'm not too high-brow to write off mysticism, magic, and meaning in the stars. Far be it from me to either swear by the zodiac's predictions or write them off as nonsense; all I know is I like playing around with said predictions every now and then. Here's a little something I found online, billed as a way to measure romantic compatibility based on astrological signs. Craig's an Aries and I'm a Pisces; the website's predictions are featured below. It's accurate about a few things, but suffice it to say that this feminist doesn't want to "act as helpless as [I] sometimes feel" or play the "damsel in distress" role, nor is my egalitarian husband super-eager to rescue me or solve all my problems (once, while we were grocery shopping as newlyweds, he told me one of the things he loves most about me is that I'm independent and he's confident I can take care of myself -- awww).
Aries Man and Pisces Woman Compatibility
Believe it or not this is one of the most romantic combinations in the zodiac. These two play Tarzan and Jane beautifully together. The Pisces woman gives the Aries man the chance to be a hero every day while she gets to be the damsel in distress. The natural inclination of each to play these complementary roles makes this an enduring combination.
How to Attract a Pisces Woman as an Aries Man: The Aries man can be a he man without apology. Open the door, unload the groceries, maintain her car, and even carry her over the doorstep. Your rugged masculine energy is nothing but a plus. To win her heart, pull out all the romantic stops: arrive at the door with flowers on the first date (hand-picked if possible and tied loosely with a ribbon). Draw out the mating process as long as possible. Enjoy the exquisite feeling of yearning and indulge your imagination.
How to Attract an Aries Man as a Pisces Woman: This is one relationship that proves the adage “if you want him to be more of a man, be more of a woman.” To start with, act as helpless as you often feel. He wants to open the door, carry the groceries, fix your car, and even carry you over the threshold. It’s even possible that he would love to rescue you. Maybe you can think of some small difficulties to get into that he knows how to fix.
Degree of Romance: The degree of romance in this combination is off the charts. Each of these two is the born romantic and will revel in the opportunity to play along with someone who seems to be following the same script. Pisces needs the strong Aries presence which leads quickly to flowers and dinner by candlelight
Degree of Passion: The Aries man is a fiery lover and Pisces is the born shape shifter. She will take on any role that is assigned to her. So if he wants passion, she’ll give it.
Degree of Friendship: This relationship tends to polarize the energies of the two participants rather than bring them together as friends. Mutual admiration is a better way to describe this energy, but that’s just as solid a glue.
Degree of Marriage: This is a good possibility for marriage, particularly a first marriage where gender differences can be more of a plus. It is likely to be a lifelong romance. Each party will remember the other one on the day they met, which keeps the love alive. She is a domestic goddess and he is a stalwart provider.
Progression of Relationship: Pisces is very willing to let Aries take the lead, and Aries is very comfortable with that. He will set the pace, probably squeezing out every ounce of romance before consummating the relationship.
Sex: Sex between these two is a fantasy garden, a perfect and blissful blending of heart and mind, body and soul. It is a very strong point in the partnership that is likely to be maintained throughout the relationship.
When It’s Over: It will be very sad for both parties if this relationship ends. There will be many tears, genuine distress and anguish on both sides. They may reunite several times before making the final break. Pisces brings out the gentle side of Aries. He is likely to be solicitous of her well-being, even as they are parting.
