Pisces

Your Most Likable Trait: COMPASSION

The Sun is in this last sign of the zodiac from 20 February until 20 March each year. The symbol for Pisces is the Fish. In Pisces, the Sun is sensitive and idealistic. You are “tuned in” to your environment, and aware of everything happening in your world, and to everyone around you. Pisces is the dream sign of the zodiac. You may be one of the true dreamers of the world, often getting caught up in impractical plans and ideas. You absorb the ideas and the mental outlook of those around you, for better or for worse. The decisions that you make may be workable, if sometimes emotional and erratic. Often these decisions are made on hunches and feelings with little or no foundation in fact. Creative, spiritual and often a bit mystical, you can be impractical and illogical. You have an otherworldly quality, as if you are being pulled between material existence and the spiritual realm. You are born with the gift of prophecy and may even become involved in the occult, ESP or spiritualism.

You understand first with your heart and then you rationalize what you know intuitively. Your personality is elusive, fey and quick silvery. You are enormously influenced by your surroundings and by the people who touch your life. You have tender sympathy for anyone and anything that hurts; sick plants, hungry animals, friends in need- they all find a home with you. For you, learning to say no can be a life long lesson. You have a penchant for picking the wrong companions. A fatal flaw in Pisces is a tendency to flee from anything you don t want to deal with. At times you may feel your life has become so punctuated with trouble and heartache that you try desperately to escape. Certainly, you do not lack a backbone. Indeed you are capable of great sacrifice and hard work in the service of a cause or ideal. Intellectually, you are curious and like to explore the unusual, the hidden.

Although you can be impractical, even lazy, you are also capable of prodigious work when you are involved in a project you truly care about. Despite the fact that you work unselfishly for others, you find it hard to discipline yourself. You are not really suited to the tough, rough and tumble world of business, you are a dreamer, and usually more successful as a writer, musician, poet or artist. You exert a unique power over people who s lives touch yours because you blend compassion and understanding with great verve. You may feel you lack the confidence to be a leader, but you are definitely a guide, teacher and role model to many. You are also a charmer with a mischievous wit who loves to laugh. You have a deep appreciation for the inner qualities of others, you are not concerned with the superficial or what others see on the surface.

You’re a moody and introspective person, and it’s hard for others to understand you. It may be hard for you to understand yourself sometimes. Your temperament varies from being optimistic to being acutely pessimistic. Although you may be very shy and unassuming, you care deeply about your stature and succeeding in your endeavors. You may feel vulnerable and anxious when you are unsure of your status and circumstances. You have a deeply hidden inner pride and when this is attacked in any way, you react emotionally.

Compassionate, tolerant, kind, and loving, you are easily influenced by others because you don’t want to hurt anyone. Always charming and likable, you are good to those in distress. You are as fond of animals as you are people. You are sympathetic to the world’s unfortunate, including every stray animal and helpless soul you meet. You are more concerned with others’ well-being than your own, and you want to save people from themselves. You are easily taken in by a hard-luck story and often leave yourself open to be used. You are always there with a shoulder to cry on for your friends in need. Frequently people take advantage of this compassionate nature.

If you are a typical Pisces, you’re likely to suffer from an inferiority complex. You probably lack an adequate sense of self-confidence, as you are so very sensitive, shy and introspective. You never feel that you do enough, so you often overwork, putting stress on your physical body. In your quiet way, you accomplish much. Having a natural tendency to become a workaholic, you must have a generous amount of escape time, preferably with total solitude.

Pisces, more than any other sign, draws strength or weakness from the rest of the horoscope. The nature of Pisces is very adaptable and pliable. You may have to fight for a sense of stability and to resist the impulses of the moment. Everyone thinks you are his or her special friend, and they have your undivided attention. You are thought of as solicitous and concerned. You also have a sparkling social presence- witty, vivacious, and always interested in new activities. People consider you artistic and somewhat bohemian, and are impressed by your psychic sensibility. They value as a confidant but, oddly, the more people you lean on, the weaker they think you are.

THE INNER YOU

You absorb impressions, images, and emotions from everything around you, and then filter them through your rose- colored view of how you’d like things to be. This is not to say you cannot deal with reality- it’s just that you like to think of life as an ultra-romantic movie filled with happy endings and where everyone has the best possible motives. You are a big bundle of feelings, you feel intense joy and happiness when you’re involved in a creative project or a loving relationship. The opposite is also true; you can suffer greater depths of sadness than most. Yet you’re tougher than most people think. Push you down and you keep bouncing back like a rubber bathtub toy. You’re charged with energy and get caught in what’s going on around you. Your greatest strength is in giving to others; you’re always ready to help whoever needs you.

HOW OTHERS SEE YOU

Everyone thinks you are his or her special friend, that they have your undivided attention. You’re thought of as solicitous and concerned. You’re also known as a sparkling social presence- witty, vivacious, and always interested in new activities. People consider you artistic and somewhat bohemian, and are impressed by your psychic sensibility. They value you as a confidant but, oddly, the more people lean on you, the weaker they think you are.

PISCES DECANS

Each Star Sign of the Zodiac can be divided into three subsections called Decans. Each Decan roughly corresponds to 10 degrees or 10 days of the Star Signs time period. Decans can provide a more detailed account of an individual’s personality traits and character and reveal how people born under the same Star Sign can be very different. The Pisces personality can differ according to which one of the Pisces Decans an individual is born under:

If you were born between February 20 and March 1

This is the first of the Pisces Decans and is ruled by the planet Neptune. The first Pisces Decan personality is characterised by romanticism, selflessness and intuition. You take a positive and optimistic view of life that sometimes borders on naivety as you seldom see the bad in others. Because of this you can sometimes be taken advantage of by ruthless or devious personalities. You have a dreamy romantic nature and always find the poetic beauty in anyone or anything. You can drift off, quite easily, into your own fantasy world and you have a vivid imagination. Because you are highly intuitive you can sense the mood, feelings and emotions of others. But because you are so sensitive these moods and feelings can seep into your soul, so that you carry other people’s worries with you. But this does not seem to bother you as your selfless nature forces you to help others. So if you can carry some of their burdens, you will gladly do so. You make for a wonderful friend and will offer a shoulder to cry on and a listening ear to those who ask for it.

If you were born between March 2 and 11

The second of the Pisces Decans has the Moon as its ruler. The second Pisces Decan personality is characterised by self sacrifice, sensitivity and strong psychic abilities. You are highly psychic and use all your senses to connect to your intuition to guide you. You can be highly successful in careers that require empathy and understanding such as therapists, counsellors and mentors. You literally will do anything for anybody – often to the detriment of yourself. You instinctively put others before you and don’t expect thanks or praise for your self-sacrifices. You are a natural giver and don’t like to take. You are also very kind hearted and trusting and only see the best points in people. You are a sensitive soul and feel emotions deeply. Because of this you sometimes experience the extremes of emotions being elated one moment and in the depths of despair the next. These mood swings can dent yourself confidence and make you feel less than you are. Other peoples moods and emotions effect you deeply too as you feel their pains and joys.

If you were born between March 12 and 20

The third of the Pisces Decans is ruled by the planet Pluto. The third Pisces Decan personality is characterised by a spiritual nature, experimentalism and intensity. You are highly sensitive to psychic connections and very much attuned to your intuition. Spirituality plays a significant part in your life. Soul searching and finding the true meaning of life are never far from your thoughts. You are a deep thinker too with a strong imagination and can create poetry and works of fiction that are truly moving. Nothing is wishy washy with you. You are passionately intense with the people you love and just as intense with the beliefs you hold. You wholeheartedly devote your time, energy and attention to anything you consider truly worthwhile. You love to experiment and will try anything at least once. You are forever reinventing yourself to adapt and change to the differing circumstances in your life. You are somewhat of a chameleon and can change yourself dramatically according to the situation you find yourself in. Because of this ability to adapt and change you make an excellent actor.

PISCES LOVE COMPATIBILITY

Pisces and Sagittarius Love Compatibility

These two ignite in the bedroom, but the compatibility ends there. None of them can give another the feeling of reliability. Independent Sagittarius is too much of a rover to satisfy Pisces’s need for attention and devotion. Sagittarius’s sharp tongue will hurt Pisces’s romantic sensibilities. Pisces wants to get close but is constantly confused and rebuffed by Sagittarius’s struggle to free itself of the heavy emotional demands. The Sagittarius thinks that, that he/she is constrained by shyness of the Pisces, and that his/her energy and optimism are slowly drowning in a bog of despondency. This is an extremely difficult connection. The marriage is almost impossible.

Pisces and Gemini Love Compatibility

The passion quotient is high, and so are the problems. The Pisces are too emotional for Gemini. Emotional Pisces for his/her turn is too easily hurt by thoughtless Gemini. Gemini is mischievous and playful, but Pisces is sensitive and takes things to heart. It creates an atmosphere of suspiciousness and mistrust. There can be a feeling of flame between them but the instability in their relations will destroy connection as a result. This is a rather risky connection and unhappy marriage.

Pisces and Capricorn Love Compatibility

The Pisces will probably try to cheat on the Capricorn, because it is in their character, but the Capricorn is able to cope with it and will be the leader in bed. The Pisces will soon decide to follow him/her. The Pisces are affectionate and sincere creatures and can make the Capricorn’s life full of joy. Capricorn provides a ballast for Pisces’s drifting dreaminess and supplies the stability that Pisces needs and admires. And there’s nothing Capricorn likes better than being admired. These very different people supplement each other emotionally. It is a good combination with complimentary values. They will find comfort in one another providing Capricorn displays his/her emotions at least once in awhile. There is very good forecast for these relationships.

Pisces and Aquarius Love Compatibility

In case Pisces study the Aquarian horoscope , this may not be a bad combination. But usually their sexual affinity turns into a war with elements of a melodrama. The sensitive Pisces dependent on the Aquarius too much and constantly demanding the proofs of his/her love. The Aquarius feels depressed. The Pisces is a highly complex personality that must be the center of attention in his/her lovers life, and this is disheartening to Aquarius who believes in developing individuality. Pisces can have deep bouts of depression and if he/she perceives that Aquarius is unsympathetic to these he/she may cut Aquarius off completely and make his/her own private decision about their life together. This connection seems to be promising at first , but it will never get into a happy marriage.

Pisces and Scorpio Love Compatibility

This may be a love at first sight combination. There is a strong mutual attraction between them. Pisces are ready to rely on Scorpio to compensate their indecision, and will agree with the Scorpio’s aspiration to dominate. Scorplo’s jealousy and possessiveness won’t bother Pisces-in fact, it makes Pisces feel loved. Pisces’s dependency is just what Scorpio is looking for. These two share a special communion, much of it on a sensual, unspoken level. Both have intense feelings, are loyal, intuitive, interested in the mystical and the unusual. Their sexual life should be delightful. The Pisces are inventive. The Scorpio is persevering. Both – affair and marriage are successful.

Pisces and Taurus Love Compatibility

This usually is a very happy combination. Taurus is a strong, authoritative figure who can provide security and stability for vacillating Pisces. Trying to help Pisces make all of their dreams come true, tactfully and reliably encouraging them, a persevering Taurus can achieve all what he wants from these relationships. Success of their sexual harmony depends on the Taurus. These two can share a great deal of their appreciation for beauty, art, sensuality and just about any of the finer things in life. Pisces is easily clouded by emotion but can be brought to reality by Taurus’ down to earth nature. Taurus can be helped to dream by the Pisces personality. There are good prospects for interesting affair as well as for healthy marriage.

Pisces and Libra Love Compatibility

Here there is mutual attraction, but it seldom lasts long as they start off fine, since both are sentimental and affectionate. In a way they are alike: both want to impose their romantic visions on reality. Libra can get along will with mast people, but Pisces is more discriminating, and this is the source of their disagreements. Nothing makes Libra more miserable then a sulky, complaining Pisces. Finally Libra will become tired with a Pisces’ desire to rely on someone. As for the Pisces -they can’t stand the fact that the Libra has a vast variety of interests. If Libra becomes quarrelsome, Pisces will plunge into despondency. Does it sound sadly? Yes, it does.

Pisces and Cancer Love Compatibility

This is an affectionate, sensitive couple who will bolster each other’s ego. Pisces is an imaginative dreamer but Cancer is an imaginative worker-and together they can make their dreams a reality. Pisces provides romance in Cancer’s life, and Cancer is the all-protective lover Pisces needs. They are a good pair in the field of sex. They are both sympathetic and try to support each other. Probably the Cancer will be the leader, because of the the Pisces’ inclination for some eccentricity in love affairs. The quarrels are usually short and quickly come to an end in bed. They are perfectly fit for each other. They can spend their time during day and during night with the same result and the sentimental combination of these two signs make for an ideal marriage.

Pisces and Aries Love Compatibility

Fire and water do not normally mix and that is why the Aries with Pisces love match could be a complex relationship. Aries is self-assured and vivacious; Pisces is somewhat shy and easily led. Aries likes to be dominant, Pisces likes having someone to lean on. The Aries will be intrigued by the behavior of Pisces in the bedroom. The active participation of the Aries will help Pisces get the shyness over. The realization of Pisces’ sexual wishes can cause strong excitation. Together they should have interesting and pleasant time. The opportunity of connection or a marriage is very high, if they manage to overcome the differences between their temperaments.

Pisces and Leo Love Compatibility

Leo is flamboyant, domineering; Pisces is unworldly and mystical. They intrigue each other because they are so different, but the differences don’t mesh well. An active Leo can not understand timid and quiet Pisces. Leo won’t not even try to understand the Pisces’ behavior in bedroom. Representatives of both signs are inclined to receive more than give. Leo needs public acclaim, while Pisces prefers the sheltered life. Leo can’t tolerate Pisces’s ultra-sensitivity, nor Pisces’s inclination toward exotic boudoir activity. When Pisces run into despondency the Leo’s pride doesn’t allow him to participate and help his/her partner to get a problem over. It will be rather difficult connection and unsuccessful marriage.

Pisces and Pisces Love Compatibility

With these two signs having the same virtues and vices they should get along well together, or at least they will have understanding and sympathy for one another. Their mutual sympathy guarantees that there will be a perfect understanding in the field of sexual needs between them. If their problems can be dissolved on a background of a sexual compatibility, it will be one of the best pairs in the Zodiac. The only possible drawback is a drifting too far from practical realities. To solve this problem they both can be anchored to each other, so that they can put their shoulders to the wheel and face the responsibilities that reality demands. This is seems to be a rather sexual connection. The marriage will be interesting.
