Pisces natives are sentimental and romantic in love. At times they expect too much from others and then feel hurt if the other person doesn’t come through for them. They have a strong tendency to place their loved one on a pedestal. This leads to disillusionment when they discover their loved one has faults, too.
The symbol for Pisces is two fish going in opposite directions connected by a cord. One fish represents the personality and the other represents the spirit. These two opposing forces operate within a Piscean, causing insecurity and indecisiveness. Handling these forces in a positive manner is very difficult for them. Some will seek to escape these pressures through eating, alcohol, drugs or other excesses. That is what one of the fish represents. The other fish represents the Piscean rising to great heights through self-denial, sacrifice and then ultimate attainment. Pisces natives learn through suffering and they need to learn perseverance.
Pisces natives tend to absorb the information and environment around them. Thus it is important that they surround themselves with uplifting people and circumstances. Pisces natives are creative, self-sufficient people whose minds are extremely active, due to their strong imagination, which they can sometimes get carried away with. They sense and feel things that others are not aware of.
Pisces natives generally do not possess strong willpower nor do they have a dynamic approach to life. Although they can appear to be very determined on the outside, underneath, inner doubts are brewing. This insecurity causes them to need reassurance from others. One of their greatest needs is to learn to understand their emotional ups and downs. Since they have a tendency to doubt their own conclusions, they need to learn to believe in themselves.
Pisces natives are very generous with their time in helping other people. They always feel their best when they are serving others in some capacity. By using their compassion outwardly for others, they will not become as moody and introverted. Since Pisces natives are reluctant to hurt others or to face any sort of confrontation, they can become involved in very difficult emotional situations which they find extremely difficult to break. They have a difficult time saying no sometimes and will stay in bad situations thinking that they can somehow change the other person and then all will be well. Some Pisces natives love to play the martyr, while others need to play the savior. Pisces natives tend to think with their heart rather than their head and can be easily used by others. Many fall for any kind of sob story, much to their own detriment. Their hearts are in the right place, it’s just they need to be more realistic and down-to-earth.
Pisces natives can be highly secretive, but they make friends rather easily and are quite loyal to them. They do not particularly like verbal or combative fights, but will defend their friends in subtle ways. Pisces natives sometimes lack vitality which often gives people the idea that they are lazy. Well, some are and Pisces natives in general do like to procrastinate. A Piscean needs sufficient time each day to be alone while they regain their fluctuating energies.
A Piscean’s innate desire to escape from physical living can be used constructively through creativity. Many forms of art, dance and music appeal to them. They instinctively seem to know their own capabilities and limitations. Unfortunately, though, their knowledge of their limitations can create an inferiority complex. Pisces natives enjoy drama and acting because it gives them the opportunity of being someone else. This enables them to temporarily lose their inferiority complex. Because of their hypersensitivity, they can become instantly depressed over little things that are said to them.
Pisces natives can appear to be deceitful because of an inborn need to justify their words and actions. If in trouble, they may attempt to rationalize their way out rather than face the consequences of their behavior.
Pisces is Mutable Water; its keyword is "I believe".Symbolized by two fish, and in the body rules the feet and the pineal gland. The two fish in Pisces represent the personality swimming downstream and the soul swimming upstream. Since they are tied together, one takes the other with it: either the soul captures the personality and the individual’s life becomes spiritualized, or the personality captures the soul and the individual seeks escape in the world.
This is the Sign of surrender, personal sacrifice, and submissiveness. Being the most sensitive Sign in the Zodiac, you must exercise discrimination or you’ll soak up negative energy from your environment like a sponge. Pisceans want to escape the material world and the confinement of matter, and identify with and are attracted to the ocean, music, theater, film, religion, alcohol and/or drugs. Moody, introspective, and deeply emotional, you may have a strong feeling of inferiority and being unworthy. Serve or suffer could be the motto here: you love to help those less fortunate than yourself. You’re able to carry ideas and dreams into reality: to make the spirit matter.
