It is easy to see why people love Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes as a couple. They’re charismatic, respectable, and dedicated to their work. They are beloved by their fans and each host a dedicated fanbase. As a couple, the two of them have now been going strong for around 8 years. During this time, they’ve started a small family of their own made up of their two daughters.
To many they are the perfect match, and it seems like they would agree. Back in April, Eva Mendes revealed in an interview that she never thought about having children until she met Ryan Gosling. In her own words, “I mean, falling in love with him. Then it made sense for me to have – not kids – but his kids. It was very specific to him.”
So, in honor of the two of them, we thought it would be fun to take a look at their relationship from the perspective of zodiac signs, and see just what is it that makes them compatible as couples.
12th November 1980. That’s Ryan Gosling’s birthday, meaning he falls under the influence of Scorpio. Fun fact, in the film Drive, Ryan Gosling’s character wears a jacket with the Scorpio sign on it!
Scorpio’s distinguish themselves from others by a strength they carry within themselves; a strength that expresses itself in many different forms. First, is what only can be described as an unbeatable resolve. They rarely shy away from opportunities, but rather will assert themselves. This inner strength is apparent to everyone around them and tends to boost them to the role of a de facto leader in almost every circumstance.
It is not easy to break the will of a Scorpio. They are stubborn, and are willing to brave even the most treacherous of waters. They are also resourceful. This, accompanied by their decisive mindset, means that there are few problems a Scorpio can’t navigate themselves out of.
They also possess a deep and passionate spirit. It is easy to see where someone like Ryan Gosling directs this passion towards. As an actor, Ryan Gosling has enjoyed a success career, starring in some of the most recognizable films of recent memory.
Scorpios value loyalty, which makes them the best of friends. They are very committed to their relations with family and friends, and provide a pillar of support for everyone around them. The bravery and resolve of a Scorpio is the subject of admiration for all those around them, and naturally attracts people towards them.
Scorpios also value truth. It’s the facts that Scorpios are determined to find in every occasion, and their stubbornness means they never quit in their pursuit for certainty.
However, for some Scorpios, this thirst for the truth can express itself in the form of skepticism. Scorpios can often be very distrustful of others and don’t accept things at face value. They question everything – a trait that can sometimes rub off the wrong way on those around them. Scorpios also enjoy holding onto truths – that is, they can be quite secretive and do not enjoy opening up to others. Scorpios are often hesitant in revealing secrets. Sometimes, this may upset friends and family who begin to think that they are not trusted. But there is a positive to this, as it means that Scorpios are the best to trust with secrets, once again proving how loyal of a friend they make.
Born on the 5th of March 1974, Eva Mendes is a Pisces.
If you ever meet a Pisces, you’ll realize just how easy it is to make friends with them. They are kind, gentle, and compassionate souls. They are the friendliest individuals you can meet, they are incredibly caring of all those around them, and are faithful to all.
It’s this love that they harbor for all humans that leads them into engaging with people of all kinds. You’ll often find a Pisces interacting and associating with people that differ wildly in character and appearance. They also enjoy helping out, whether it be a loved one, a close friend, or even an acquaintance. Just call on a Pisces and they’ll help you, no strings attached, and with no expectations of the favor being returned.
When it comes to relationships with family and friends, Pisces enjoy connecting on a deep and emotional level. When they meet someone, they want to truly get to know them and interact with them on a personal level. This is why you’ll often find Pisces make the best of friends, as they are understanding of people’s emotions and do not shy away from helping others through personal troubles. Even more, a Pisces will never judge you no matter what the circumstances are. They are accepting of everyone and are always willing to forgive.
Above being loving souls, they are artistic in nature. They love music and literature. They let their heart guide them when it comes to their artistic journey and they harbor an intense love for developing their creative talents. They also enjoy sports for leisure. Take swimming, as an example, or even badminton.
Apart from all of this, Pisces are very much in touch with their spiritual side. They believe that it is important to recognize one’s spiritual instinct and to safely direct it towards positive things in life, rather than to ignore it and repress it. This is perhaps why they enjoy alone time every now and then, as they step away from their brisk livelihoods, and take some time to self-reflect.
When dealing with a Pisces, however, there are some things you must be aware of. First of all, they do not appreciate criticism. Pisces accept their flaws, but only when they are the ones who notice them. If someone else points out their faults, they won’t take it lightly.
Second of all, their trusting nature can often lead to naïve decisions. They sometimes find themselves making decisions that will end up hurting them, which is why friends and families must always be on the lookout, keeping an eye on them, and making sure they don’t do anything that will mean trouble for them.
So, now that we’ve established their individual traits, what is it that makes the Scorpio and Pisces go so well together?
The first thing you’ll most likely notice with a Scorpio and Pisces couple is their ability to connect on an emotional level. For most people, Scorpios are quite difficult to understand and it’s near impossible to get them to open up. Not for a Pisces, though. Pisces can quite easily break through the boundaries Scorpios tend to put up around them. They are willing to invest time and effort into connecting with their Scorpio partner and, being the compassionate souls, they are, can handle the emotions that Scorpios tend to lock up deep inside them.
Their understanding of each other’s emotions extends even further. Scorpios, while they tend to maintain a hard cover around them, approach almost everything in life with a certain level of sentiment. The same goes for Pisces. What is so great about a Scorpio and Pisces is that they are able to recognize the emotional side of each other which is why they can so easily help each other when it comes to making rational or objective decisions in life.
When it comes to what they value in life, a Scorpio and a Pisces tend to disagree. Scorpios admire strength, while Pisces value sensitivity. A Scorpio searches for the truth in everything, while a Pisces tends to be more interested in personal beliefs and ideals. But that’s alright, as both keep an open mind towards their partner’s opinions, and are willing to build off of each other’s differing viewpoints.
Couples consisting of a Pisces and a Scorpio also enjoy doing activities together. They are both passionate about many different things and enjoy trying out new things together. However, there are a few things to be wary of. A Scorpio tends to obsess about everything they involve themselves with. If they begin something, they must succeed at it. This fanatic behavior might tire out their Pisces partner who tends to be more easygoing. At the same time, the habit of a Pisces to constantly switch from one thing to another might annoy their Scorpio partner who enjoys focusing on one thing at a time.
Overall, a Scorpio and a Pisces makes a great match. Being together offers each other new opportunities and new areas to explore and develop as individuals. The ability to connect on an emotional level paves the way for added intimacy. From this perspective, it’s easy to see why Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes go so well together. They’re both kind and compassionate souls who respect each other as individuals and are willing to commit to each other. All things considered, Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes’s charming relationship ticks all the boxes required for a healthy and successful relationship.
