PISCES: Two fish going in different directions is the symbol for this water sign ruled by the planet Neptune. Pisces seems to encompass the characteristics of all the other signs, along with the accumulated characteristics of the previous two water signs…Cancer and Scorpio. There is a duality to the Pisces nature. This is a very resilient sign and Pisces can be all things to all people, choosing what they want to show at any given time. There are two distinct sides to the personality and there is an ability to carry on two professions and be successful at both (similar to Gemini, the sign of the twins).
Pisces is sympathetic and quite sentimental. They will make their guests feel comfortable as long as they are in the mood for company.. Sometimes they are just not in the mood for guests or going out because the other fish needs some alone time. But for the most part, Pisces is very interested in others and especially those less fortunate. They are very sensitive and often suffer some painful experiences in emotional relationships.
Expect them to be well informed on a variety of subjects and many will become very successful. However, some “fish” just have no interest in attaining success at all, and they can go from one extreme to another. At these times, they are conflicted and seem to be thrown by circumstances that they seem to have no control over. This type can be easily confused and try to escape from reality. They can become addicted to alcohol and drugs, using these to escape.
Most Pisceans are very refined, love beauty and avoid anything considered to be crude. They may have a passionate love for nature. Pisces produces many psychics. They seem to be very drawn to the mysterious forces of life. It’s best that they learn more about mysticism before getting too involved and also avoid getting involved in strange cults. Pisces are the most susceptible to outside influences.
Pisces can live in a dream world and see life through rose colored glasses. Many of the world’s best artists have Pisces prominent in their charts and have used their emotions through their art. Lack of purpose can turn the Piscean emotions inward and they could become very lost. However, Pisces can also choose to excel in business and can do very well if handled with tact and not pushed too hard. They don’t like too much discipline or routine. Pisceans are known to be able to get away with outrageous things in their personal or business lives and still come up smiling! Many other signs would be brought down by the risks Pisces seems able to take without being put in danger.
Travel delights them, whether it’s a short day trip or travel to the other side of the world. They are adaptable to their surroundings and can be very inspirational to others. They should try not to spread themselves too thin and dissipate their energies. Pisces’ natural kindness, sympathy, charm and genuine softness can inspire their friends.
Pisces are extremely intuitive and many are Psychics. Some join religious orders to escape the harshness of the world and some become healers, either through the medical profession or through hands-on healing.. Pisces are naturally drawn to paint, sculpt, photograph, dance, write poetry or music and many other artistic expressions. If you want a romantic partner, there is none better than a Pisces. Much of what has been written is also expressed by those with Pisces Rising in their charts, and those with a lot of Pisces planets.
