Key Words: Compassionate, Impressionable, Spiritual

Pisces are known for their unlimited compassion, and they are one of the most sensitive signs of the zodiac. They are responsive to their environment and absorb its energy unconsciously. This often means that they sense something yet can’t always explain it. They can be easily influenced by what goes on around them and are therefore considered quite impressionable.

Pisces can be rather vague, almost dreamlike and seem to be ‘off with the pixies’ or very clear and determined! It’s quite unusual to see the happy median; most will vacillate between the two extremes. They have a vivid imagination which can exaggerate a situation and they may see things that are not there or read more into the situation making it a bigger issue than it needs to be. On these matters, they need to learn to discriminate and not overreact.

A lack of emotional control is caused by absorbing the feelings of others and may result in mild to chronic depression. In addition, Pisces need to be very careful with the use of drugs and alcohol as their bodies are very sensitive to the effects of these and often they need less of the stuff to experience its full effects.

Most Pisces are aware of undercurrents in any situation and if this ability is used positively it can assist with the connection and growth of others, yet if used negatively they simply manipulate circumstances to suit them. Pisces can be masters in business as they integrate their intuition into decision-making quite powerfully and usefully.

Having such a delicately balanced nervous system, they can get very weary and they will find themselves needing to take time out away from the world to become grounded. They often like reading, movies or some other form of escapism and use this as a way to stimulate creativity and their fantasy world. These folk are like psychic sponges and those who have mastered emotional control will be able to develop their psychic abilities to the fullest. To facilitate this, a calm environment surrounded by music and colours that resonate with the particular personality will play an important role.

In relationships, the Pisces must be careful in their approach to emotional ties. They can be easily carried away and discover when it is too late, that the marvellous attributes that they saw in their partner do not exist. They will find it difficult to deal with the practical aspects of marriage because taking the garbage out is does not conjure up ideas of romance. They make wonderful lovers and have a real flair for the romantic.

Pisces – The Dark Side

Vague, Confused, Disorientated

The strength becomes a weakness when it is out of proportion and Pisces who see things through rose-coloured glasses may finish up not seeing the forest for the trees! They have a vulnerability about them which can result in less scrupulous people taking advantage of their kind heart so, concerning this, they often don’t discriminate wisely from those who need them to those who just want something from them.
