Febuary 20 to March 20
Imaginative and sensitive
Compassionate and kind
Selfless and unworldly
Intuitive and sympathetic
On the dark side....
Escapist and idealistic
Secretive and vague
Weak-willed and easily led
Pisceans possess a gentle, patient, malleable nature. They have many generous qualities and are friendly, good natured, kind and compassionate, sensitive to the feelings of those around them, and respond with the utmost sympathy and tact to any suffering they encounter. They are deservedly popular with all kinds of people, partly because their easygoing, affectionate, submissive natures offer no threat or challenge to stronger and more exuberant characters. They accept the people around them and the circumstances in which they find themselves rather than trying to adapt them to suit themselves, and they patiently wait for problems to sort themselves out rather than take the initiative in solving them. They are more readily concerned with the problems of others than with their own.
Their natures tend to be too otherworldly for the practical purposes of living in this world as it is. They sometimes exist emotionally rather than rationally, instinctively more than intellectually (depending on how they are aspected). They long to be recognized as greatly creative. They also dislike disciple and confinement. The nine-to-five life is not for them. Any rebellion they make against convention is personal, however, as they often times do not have the energy or motivation to battle against the Establishment.
Pisceans tend to withdraw into a dream world where their qualities can bring mental satisfaction and sometimes, fame and financial reward for they are extremely gifted artistically. They are also versatile and intuitive, have quick understanding, observe and listen well, and are receptive to new ideas and atmospheres. All these factors can combine to produce remarkable creativity in literature, music and art. They may count among their gifts mediumistic qualities which can give them a feeling that their best work comes from outside themselves, "Whispered beyond the misted curtains, screening this world from that." Even when they cannot express themselves creatively they have a greater than average instinct for, and love of, beauty in art and nature, a catlike appreciation of luxury and pleasure, and a yearning for new sensations and travel to remote, exotic places.
They are never egotistical in their personal relationships and give more than they ask from their friends. They are sexually delicate, in the extreme almost asexual, and most Pisceans would want a relationship in which the partner's mind and spirit rather than the body resonated with their own. Unfortunately they can be easily misled by a lover who courts them delicately and in marriage makes them unhappy by a coarser sexuality than they expected. They are nevertheless intensely loyal and home-loving and will remain faithful.
In their employment they are better working either by themselves or in subordinate positions. Their talents are individual in a commercial business or similar undertaking. They would be afraid to manage more than a small department, worrying always that they would fail in a crisis. They can make fair secretaries and bookkeepers. Their sympathy equips them for work in charities catering for the needy, as nurses looking after the sick and as veterinary surgeons caring for animals. As librarians or astronomers they can satisfy their mental wanderlust, and their fondness for "faraway places with strange-sounding names" may turn them into sailors or travellers. Many architects and lawyers are Pisceans, and when the creative abilities are combined with gifts of imitation and the ability to enter into the feelings of others, Pisceans find their fulfillment on the stage. Their psychic and spiritual qualities can lead them into careers in the church or as mediums and mystics. They may find an outlet for their creativity as caterers, and are said to make good detectives because they can imagine themselves in the place of criminals and understand how their minds would work. In technical occupations they are well employed in dealing with anaesthetics, fluids, gases and plastics. Because of their lively versatility and inability to concentrate overmuch on any one project, Pisceans often simultaneously follow more than one occupation.
Solitude to dream in
Mystery in all its guises
Anything discarded to stay discarded
like to get 'lost'
feeling all at sea about something
Sensitive and Humane
Sensitive Pisces reacts emotionally to everything. You just give in to your feelings, a trait which can lay you open to control by the unscrupulous. But then, you yourself are fairminded and not at all afraid to bend unbreakable rules, should the situation demand a more humane approach. You would make an excellent judge, a sensitive administrator, or a quite inspirational teacher.
Compassionate Pisces is idealistic, although you have a tendency towards sacrificing yourself on the altar of love, or some other noble cause. Hmmm. You really must watch that tendency to play the martyr.
Despite your sensitive personality and delicate physical constitutions, you really are a survivor. You outlast those who may be much stronger, by adapting more easily to the demands of changing circumstances. Your intuitions are reliable and should be trusted; you may even have natural psychic powers, which can be developed, given the right circumstances. However, because you are adaptable and so readily identify with the feelings of others, you risk exploitation and loss of your own needs, ideas, and talent. Of course, intuitive Pisces understands the moods and behaviour of others so well that you can be quite a manipulator behind the scenes. Pisces is a dual sign, which has both an up and a down-side.
The two fishes in your astrological sigil swim in either direction. Here is your choice: focus, be strong and overcome the weaknesses in your sensitive nature, or dissolve in vague longings and become the victim of your own vulnerability. For the sake of your emotional equilibrium, develop a private place of your own, or at least take a private time for daily retreat and relaxation. Your most creatively stimulating and soothing environment is close to water, especially near the ocean.
Artists and Dreamers
Shy Pisceans would much rather impersonate someone else than be themselves. No wonder so many of you are actors, artists, writers, and dreamers. Elusive Neptune makes it hard to predict how you will develop. Some of you are neat and well organized, while others become slovenly and careless — largely a reflection of your emotional reactions to the environment. Your intense imagination can lead you to stretch the truth under many circumstances, the other side of the coin to your creative ability write fantastic novels, poetry and produce other artistic endeavours.
Confronting your own vulnerability, you can be a daredevil and risk-taker. The thrills of car racing, piloting a plane, exploring the wilderness, or hunting game can be seductive. A compulsive eater, you face a lifelong battle of the bulge. Sports and physical fitness routines are a good way to keep in shape and reduce emotional stress. Horseback riding, dancing, skating, swimming or sailing are favoured activities.
Your sexuality is fantasy-driven and dynamite when stoked by the right mixture of wish-fulfilment, appropriate environment and emotional stimulation (not to mention drugs and alcohol!). You tend to idealise your partner, often mistaking your responses to archetypal pattern-fixations for the genuine article. This is astro-babble for the fact that you allow your imaginative emotions to cloud your judgement when it comes to sexual attraction. You are deeply intuitive and sympathetic, but can be easily deceived by those who fit your fantasy patterns.
Your personality is complex. Spiritual depth rides with a proclivity for fantasy and self-deception or deception of others. Sexually you are ambivalent, with a need for love and reassurance vying with an almost masochistic urge to be dominated. You are sexually adventurous and willing to experiment, so long as you feel secure with a partner (or partners), or if you have been subjugated to a stronger will.
You love sensitivity and are quite artistic, though sometimes unduly fixated upon the negative or dark aspects of your sex life. You readily follow others into the pleasures of some new experience and get hot when your emotional and archetypal streams are tapped.
Your empathy with others and desire to please means that you often respond to sexual advances before they have become much more than a gleam in the eye of the prospect! Admirers should be aware of your need for protection and a firm structure to prevent you from drowning the in sea of emotion. You love to help those in need and prefer to be with a stronger person with whom you can explore the delights of your relationship. An appeal to sympathy will get anyone a long way with the Pisces lover.
