I’m cheating & using a calculator from cafeastrology.

69% Your relationship is smooth, and everything is possible. You simply need to adjust to each other and you can easily do so. It only takes a minimum of warmth and mutual understanding for your couple to function steadily in spite of some rare disagreements. You must turn your marvellous relationship into a success love story because you have all the necessary keys and assets to this end. So, go for it!

I have no idea how your future looks, but the calculator ~predicts~ you two to be rather compatible.

I'm also pretty feminine & very selective about who I allow myself to get attached to ( I need someone sincere & that I really 'connect' with emotionally & intellectually) I'm torn bt a Libra (Mars in Cancer, Venus in Scorpio) & an Aries (Mars in Cancer, Venus in Taurus). who's a better bet?"

Personally, I lean towards the Libra, given your chart and what you provided about yourself and the two individuals.

You mean— would a Pisces get along with both Scorpios?

I don’t see why not.
I’m not sure what twins would do to complicate this?
(I mean, I could from a psychological standpoint— but not an astrological.)

I believe I answered a question sort of similar to this recently? 

Regardless: A relationship between these two signs can be quite harmonious; it’s of course possible! (I know many Pisces who prefer earth signs, actually.) You ask if I think he would be upset if you wished to be in a relationship with him… Honestly, I’m finding it difficult to say. I can’t help but wonder if a Taurus would be hesitant about this, seeing as most prefer stability when it comes to relationships. I wonder if they’d be cautious about changing already-stable dynamics? However, it’s also this cautious nature that leads me to believe a Taurus would prefer to be friends before lovers. 

My opinion is typically this on the “friend-to-partner” situation: Give it a shot. I’d like to think that if your friendship is strong enough, you’ll be all right, regardless of what does or doesn’t happen. (but I could be incredibly naive for thinking this)

I know some Aries who are quite clingy. 
(I’m a Pisces who loveloveloves Scorpios, and I often become disheartened that even if I do miraculously wind up with a Scorpio, their infamous sexdrive would be the end of it, because I consider myself demisexual. Yet, I’ve had Scorpios tell me they’re asexual. Uh, moral— there’s always exceptions.)

On commitment issues: 
Love can be very scary to Pisces. I mean, to hear a Pisces say that they’re “in love with love” isn’t all that uncommon. Pisces tend to regard love as something really important to them; so many people, I think, would initially go, “Oh! They’d be naturals at love.” In my opinion, the more dear you regard something (in this case love), the more frightening it can seem. If a person really cares about love and relationships, I think it’s likely that they might be apprehensive about it. They don’t want to mess up something so potentially precious. Does that make sense? It’s akin to the concept of, “I’m going to push this away before it pushes me away, even though I really don’t want to.” 

It wouldn’t surprise me if many Pisces have commitment issues at some point or another in their lives.

A lot of people asking about pisces/libra combination lately! Here's a quick post on their compatibility. 

My take on the pair would be this,

• The two signs both have a liking for aesthetics; they’re often artistic, and appreciate beauty.
• The two signs tend to be humanitarians of sorts— they really enjoy helping people.
• Both signs aspire to be in sincere, intimate relationships. 
• Libra has more of a “gentle” way of bringing Pisces back into reality; this helps Pisces from always being up in the clouds. Likewise, Pisces can show a Libra that empathy is just as important as justice. 

• They tend to disagree a lot.
• Libras are more proactive than Pisces. Libras are really conversationalists, and Pisces don’t rely as much on verbal communication. Pisces usually let things sit for a while, they’re philosophical— when something is bothering them, they don’t talk about it right away. They think. Libra might “force” Pisces into talking, when they aren’t emotionally ready. 
• Many Libras feel frustrated with the “lost, slow” nature of Pisces. (Pisces are mutable signs, remember. Libras are Cardinal signs.)
• Libras like clarity! Pisces enjoy dreaminess. 

There’s certainly a lot these two signs can teach each other, but it will likely prove challenging. However, I will say out of the three air signs, I personally believe Pisces/Libra is most likely to succeed.

I'll technically be an adult soon, and noticed during my zodiac research that I relate a whole lot to Taurus these days despite the midheaven being the only Taurus I have in my chart. (Along with a heck load of Capricorn and Aquarius in other parts of my chart)"

All right, here’s what I think of at the top of my head.

People say that as we mature, we grow into our sun sign. So, initially, I was confused— I thought, wait. That’s not right. You should feel like more of a Pisces as you reach adulthood! But then you said you had “a heck load of Capricorn and Aquarius,” and that had me wondering… now, this could just as well be some sort of (for lack of better terms) ego defense for astrology (haha), but, here’s my take. I have no idea if anyone would agree with me— but, regardless:

Midheavens often are said to represent our “career path” or our “social path.” You could think of it as the opposite of the ascendant, though that might be problematic. If you have a lot of Capricorn in your chart, I wonder if you’d be “closely tied” to your Midheaven. Uh, let me explain how I got to this thought? Capricorns tend to be success and career oriented. I can’t help but wonder if you have this motive throughout your chart, if this would be expressed through the midheaven, in your case is Taurus. 

I don’t know if that’s too abstract to follow, but that’s honestly about the only thing I can think of.

& Many Pisces pursue arts of any kind; art can act as an enabler for fantasy, escapism, etc. It, of course, works as a release for Pisces’ creativity, as well as functioning as a type of therapy. (I’m a creative writer, myself)

Taurus and Pisces are usually a harmonious pair. As cliche as it might sound, with a Taurus, you really might be able to “win the heart through the stomach,” or however the saying goes. Taurus tend to appreciate good foods. Likewise, they really enjoy, well, aesthetics. As a Pisces, I almost feel this might be a blessing— we tend to be shy and apprehensive, so a small gift can be a great way to break the ice. 

This would probably automatically send the message you’re into the Taurus, though. Which, if he’s not remotely interested… could backfire. So, if you want to play it safe, figure out what the Taurus is interested in. Have conversations revolved around his interests; people generally find it easier to talk about themselves and what they enjoy, after all. The Stereotypical Taurus appreciate visual art, or interior design, or other things visually pleasing— so chances are likely you’ll find something in common in that area.

That sounds painful.

I MEAN. Pisces and Scorpio are great together, typically. But long distance? Ouch. Scorpios don’t really strike me the type to thrive well in long distance; they’re very physical. And Pisces generally become depressed when they can’t be around their lover. 

It’s anything but ideal for the pair, but I’ll tell you: in my opinion, if there’s any pairing that embodies “love conquers all,” it’s Pisces and Scorpio.
