Pisces tend to depend on intuition more than on rational mind. Surprisingly, this intuition can help to choose the right path better than the mind does.
On the surface it may appear that Pisceans are too slow and too dreamy but in fact, they are distinguished for their great perceptivity and ability to accommodate themselves to various situations and people.
Most of the time, they don’t have intentions to be leaders, and they rarely ever break rules. Still, they are able to achieve whatever they want, and a saying can be applied here: “Say what you want, I’ll do it my way”
Pisces is the twelfth, final sign of the Zodiac cycle and is ruled by planets Jupiter and Neptune. Pisces is the natural sign of the Twelfth House.
It is the most humble and reserved of all Zodiac signs. The sign of Pisces, a pair of Fish is an indicator that it tends to “go with the flow”. The symbol also suggests that this sign is quite dual, and it is often the case with these people.
Pisceans are torn between reality and dreams, and when their illusions don’t correspond with actual facts, it is no surprise that they end up with heartache.
It is almost like one side of them is reaching upwards and another is going downwards.
Everything that Pisceans do or say is more or less driven by their emotions, and their inner world is fragile for this very reason. A lot of people born under this sign are used to live in their own little world of illusions where their brittle thoughts and dreams are safe from cruel reality.
This is why the Fish never seems to overdo anything, and all possibilities and probabilities have to be carefully considered before taking action.
The main goal of Pisces is to explore the depths of human existence. Even if they are not as pro-active as many people like them to be, Pisceans’ force lies in their imagination. It might be that this is the reason why Pisceans end up in chaos so often.
They can spend days fantasizing about people, situations and possible situations, and this often leads to confusion when all these illusions turn out to be wrong.
This is a frequent case when Pisces is in a close relationship with somebody – this kind of disillusionment creates many obstacles when adequate decisions have to be made.
They see life as they want it to be, and as endearing as it is, this attitude rarely ever helps Pisceans in mundane situations.
People born under this sign tend to rely on others more than on themselves because they very often lack self-confidence. But Pisceans are in no way limited in abilities – they just don’t engage in self-promotion.
They do not glorify material things or physical abilities; their main focus is always put on feelings and spirituality.
Such people are generous, unselfish and sympathetic, so it is no surprise that their concern about others sometimes prevents them from seeing their own possibilities.
This tendency can create a sense of insecurity and anxiety, which very often makes Pisceans quite depressedand vulnerable.
However, this sign has enough belief in goodness to overcome all obstacles that come their way. They also have a very developed sense of intuition, which may be explained by their sensible and careful nature.
Their incredible spiritual abilities make Pisceans very good psychologists and masters of disguise at the same time.
Other people often consider them to be vague and gloomy; and, this point of view is perfectly acceptable for Pisces. They are happy to observe the world and gain knowledge without too much risky interaction and exposure.
At the same time, Pisces cannot live without relationship with other people.
Despite their seemingly reserved nature Pisceans make friends quite easilybecause their somewhat mysterious character draws people towards them.
Their main goal in life is to help others and give more than it is asked for. Pisceans would never sit and watch if somebody is in need for help, they go out of their way to make sure that goodness always wins.
But, in the world of cruel minds and decadent intentions, such people get hurt very often, and their self-sacrifice is taken advantage of. When Pisceans feel like their world is falling apart they tend to distance and have some time to be alone with their thoughts.
It is a matter of course that such spiritual and emotional people find relief and peace in arts.
Their creativity is fueled by spiritual connection with the universe, and Pisces are very talented when it comes to using their emotions and feelings for something bigger than life.
Pisces feels very comfortable in the role of an artist or a philosopher, and the same tendency is applied in close relationships and friendship.
For their talents to shine the Fish has to have well balanced surroundings, the less stress is felt the more outgoing and energetic Pisces appears.
In fact, such people very often end up taking very powerful and influential positions. This is because Pisceans have a talent to adapt themselves to many situations as they always see more than meets the eye.
However, the Fish can also indulge in a negative way of life given the wrong circumstances (this is how the before mentioned duality comes into effect).
That being said, Pisces-born always have to have someone or something to depend on in order to go further with their goals, if no such impulsion is given, they tend to sulk into melancholy and pessimism.
This is why Pisceans need to have reliable companions by their side who would be able to encourage them when they lose belief in their own abilities.
Positive qualities: generosity, compassion, peacefulness and kindness.
Pisceans are very concerned about the problems of the world; they feel that it is a personal duty to make the universe a better place.
It is in the nature of those born under this to believe that everyone should help each other and look after each other all the time. And that is exactly what Pisces does.
As extremely receptive people, Pisceans are very good psychologists, and they have the ability relate to the problems of others. People who have troubles often turn to Pisces for advice and they are never disappointed.
What makes them such good companions is their non-judgmental nature. They are tolerant to everyone and everything, and they imagine themselves in someone else’s shoes before judging.
Pisces is a very generous and dedicated friend you can always ask for advice or compassion. If a lost soul comes to Pisceans for help, they will do their best to guide such soul to the right path.
This inborn altruism helps them in their constant strive for goodness, and although sometimes life gets them down they can recover very fast and keep on going.
Many people born under this sign can achieve great success in career or social life when they have enough support and encouragement.
Pisceans’ strive for knowledge is almost subconscious; they often state facts and give theories that they do not fully comprehend themselves but that are in fact true.
Pisces has a highly evolved sense of intuition that helps to make successful decisions in various situations, and most of the time they know how to apply this gift in life.
Many people born under this sign have a great potential to become psychologists or representatives of professions where perceptivity and intuition are needed.
When it comes to work they are willing to work hard even if they are not paid much. Pisceans wait for a promotion quietly and calmly, but if they feel that they have waited too long, they took matters into their own hands. They know their own value and assess the completed work properly.
Cases of pessimism or moodiness occur when Pisceans demand too much from themselves. Then they need to be alone to find their center again, and once they learn how to deal with the inborn sensitivity, the word is their oyster.
Negative qualities: insecurity, self-doubt, extremity and sulkiness.
Many representatives of Pisces zodiac sign are often quite gloomy. This happens because such people like to see the world from their own perspective, so when things go wrong Pisces just cannot deal with the fact that illusions don’t always (in fact, rarely ever) correspond with reality.
Pisceans also often feel unfortunate that their life is more complicated than other people’s even though it is namely themselves who hesitate to take actions to make their own life better. They prefer “going with the flow” instead of making things happen by using their own powers.
This is why they often depend on other people too much – Pisceans think that others have better answers. Because they are so helpful they often get used and for this reason they are insecure about other people, sometimes even too careful.
Often the Piscean considers the word to be a cruel and unfair place, and this feeling makes them isolate themselves. It is not unusual that many representatives of this sign seek relief in mysticism, alcohol or drugs.
Basically, it is bohemia that allegedly offers a life without a care. They constantly feel that there must be better way than facing reality, so they find a lifestyle that allows them not to be involved in actual problems.
Too much sensitivity can also create many troubles in life for Pisces. They can be easily discouraged from doing something and often get too emotional when criticized.
Another big issue is that they hesitate to take action even when they know how things should be; so sometimes it becomes almost impossible for them to find the best solution for a problem because they want to keep themselves and everyone else happy, but remain justice at the same.
This is why in the eyes of others Pisceans can appear lazy, indecisive or even pushovers. The main obstacle that prevents them from succeeding in life is their own inability to cope with the facts, instability of character and dependence on other people’s opinion.
