More About Pisces

IS PISCES A GOOD SIGN?

If you are asking this question, you’re probably a Pisces who is insecure. If you don’t feel valued, it’s not because being a Pisces is bad, but because society as a whole generally undervalues “soft” skills like intuition and sensitivity. Your challenge is to start viewing these things as talents instead of impediments.

WHAT IS THE PERSONALITY OF A PISCES?

Describing a Pisces’ personality can be difficult because Pisces tend to evade distinction. Their behavior changes significantly based on who they’re around. Pisces are just permeable membranes that pensively let things flow through them. They are cerebral sea sponges. They are boundless. They tend to dilute themselves with larger personalities to avoid having to form coherent identities.

Most of the qualities usually associated with Pisces (dreaminess, emotionality, imagination) are internal processes that are difficult to observe from the outside. This is because Pisces are primarily inward-facing. They are not self-absorbed, but they are absorbed in themselves.

Ultimately, a Pisces wants to dissolve. To wrest themselves of a physical form and diffuse into everything they touch as love. To exist in the gossamer liminal layer that hangs just barely above the material. To live their life like a romantic poem. To understand that reality and fantasy are neighbors on the same infinite plane.

ARE PISCES SMART?

Many Pisceans may doubt their intelligence because the society we live in places a higher emphasis on structured brains with the ability to mechanically analyze data and spit out information, while Pisces absorb and sift through sentiments. They can’t prove their argument because their opinion is based on a feeling. In fact, feeling is the very basis of the Pisces genius.

They may not be able to remember the objective facts of a situation, but they can remember the emotion they were feeling at the time. They may not be able to recite every US president from memory, but they somehow know how you feel before you do. Their irrational intelligence can sometimes be misconstrued as psychic ability. It’s really not some kind of supernatural power, but an acute sensitivity to the emotional information that lingers outside of most people’s window of perception.

Pisceans can sometimes come across as airheaded or forgetful. This is not due to mindlessness, but because of the particular orientation of their mindfulness. They are easily overstimulated, and have learned to cope by turning inward. Misplacing their keys or getting lost aren’t signs of their stupidity, but are instead a result of their detachment from the external world.

WHAT ARE PISCES WEAKNESSES?

The true Pisces weakness is that they’re often the cause of their own turmoil. They’re a little bit addicted to melancholy. They want to feel things intensely and there is a poignant side to sorrow that Pisces actually find pleasurable. They would rather marinate in a voluptuous pit of despair than have no feelings at all. The search for heart-rending emotional experiences sometimes causes Pisces to seek out situations that are subconsciously self-defeating, and then paint themselves as unwitting victims.

This is most relevant to Pisces Venus and Mars, though Pisces Suns may identify with some traits.

HOW TO SEDUCE A PISCES

  1. Bring a copy of a classic romantic novel to a park that they frequent. Wear a little musk or patchouli. Put a wildflower behind your ear. When you notice them looking, meet their gaze. Stare deeply, but not creepily.
  2. During your first conversation, tell them about your most recent heartbreak. Make sure to slip in that you’ve “never been able to talk to anyone like this before.”
  3. Confess your feelings in a handwritten letter. But first, type what you want to say into Google translate. Translate it into French and then back into English so it sounds more poetic.

Aquarius in Friendship

DO PISCES MAKE FRIENDS EASILY?

Pisces are generally good at making friends. They find it easy to relate to most people.

ARE PISCES LOYAL?

Pisces are loyal in their own way. They’ll send a text saying, “I’m here if you need to talk” right as their phone dies. They are always there to listen. It may be difficult for them to not internalize other people’s problems and make them worse in the process. They can be gossips, not maliciously, but because they’re genuinely interested in other people’s personal lives. They vacillate between codependent friendships and needing lots of alone time. Friends can take this as a slight.

WHAT MAKES A PISCES ANGRY?

It’s difficult for a pisces to get angry until there has been a gradual slow build up. They are quick to dismiss small feelings of discomfort, blaming themselves and their own sensitivity. When the situation finally erupts, it’s messy and awkward and it’s hard to understand where all this resentment is coming from. They expect others to be emotional mind readers; all of a sudden they decide they actually weren’t ok with things they initially said were fine. And they respond with “But you should’ve known I wasn’t fine!”

WHAT MAKES A PISCES HAPPY?

Pisces are happiest when submerged in something oceanic. Pisces experience an immeasurable amount of pleasure when they feel like they’re being swallowed up by something larger than themselves. They enjoy the immersion of sensory experience: the feeling of sand beneath their toes, the smell of a lover’s skin, the music of a summer breeze. They like to feel like they’re dissolving.

Many Pisces like to be around other Pisces, or other people they have a deep emotional connection with.

It is easy for a Pisces to lose themselves in other people. Creative work grounds them. Pisces must learn that a main contributor for their happiness is finding an outlet for their creative expression. Pisces are always looking to the future and they always have hope. They don’t dwell on the past too much. They put things behind them and move forward.
