Me, I don't seem to work out so well with Caps, and not just my immature first husband... maybe my heavy Taurus influence creates friction instead of ease, idunno. Maybe I'm a little TOO stubborn and controlling to mesh with a Cap man. Doesn't mean I don't see the way it can work beautifully for a different Pisces, and a different Cap.
I can definitely see WHY Cap Male and Pisces Female could work out great.. and it ain't cuz Pisces girls are "weak" and need Cap's "strength" to "save" her, in the way a lot of people think.. A Pisces is their OWN salvation. And as I've said before, the Fish is the dominant one, we KNOW this about ourselves. It only seems to shock the non-Fish who don't understand that a Pisces will CHOOSE to either control directly, or control indirectly, even by relinquishing obvious control. Barring drug/alcohol addictions or mental illness, the average Pisces very much "runs butter."
A Pisces woman may play a "damsel in distress" beautifully, esp if you seem to have a White Knight complex.. but really.. when you swoop in to "rescue" her.. aren't you really doing exactly what she wanted? When you give yourself over to her siren's call and make her dreams come true.. are you not fulfilling her wishes? She knows what she's doing, but it's not malicious or fake. A Pisces is Water and takes the shape of the vessel she's poured into but always remains essentially HERSELF at the core, unconsciously and without intent. It's one of her many talents.. call it Shapeshifting, call it Chameleon, call it whatever you want.. it's what and how she is. She'll be your dream, the one you've always wanted.
What a Pisces woman actually needs is a man who will LEAD her without trying to control her.. Pisces despise others trying to control them, but actually likes someone strong enough to not be completely controlled by the Pisces, someone to rule WITH, not rule OVER. And a strong, secure Cap Man could be just that, esp if he lets go and LOVES her.
Unless he's Mel Gibson or Tiger Woods. But to me, they are NOT the epitome of strong Cap men, and are a very poor representation of their Sun Sign.
In this modern age of media sensationalism, we tend to always look for the negative stuff because it's more exciting. "Dog bites man" is boring news but "Man bites dog" will get everyone's tongue wagging. Similarly Hollywood couples that are happy together are deemed un-newsworthy but divorces/marital bickering/thrashings always seem to be juicy news. Why does everyone always point to Mel Gibson/Tiger Wood types when there's so many other good folks around.
Take for instance, Cyd Charisse (pisces) & Tony Martin (cap): Married for 60 years, one of the longest Hollywood marriages.
I'll bet you never even heard of them. That's the media for you...
Cappie men and Pisces women may blend well together... if they ever get that far, because Caps are incredibly crude when it comes to seduction, they basically seem to think that women want to be treated like just like mes and this applies to the object of their affection as well. I've witnessed this on several occasions regarding Cap males. So they get constantly turned down by the finer ladies who think they are total markers... which may not be the case. But unless these Cap males sharpen their social skills they won't even come near the first base with a Pisces.
