Oh Pisces, you are a dreamy and psychic one, and this is due to your combined energies of the Water sign that you are and the watery planet Neptune that rules you. You may not be the biggest doer of the Zodiac, but you are definitely one of the most creative, and also one of the most psychic. As the Mutable Water sign, you are also extremely flexible, and fill up the vessel of whatever environment you are in. Your emotions can be a bit all over the map, and you are known to retreat to your cave if the emotions run too high. Sensitivity is your middle name, and this is not understood by many. However, when you use sensitivities as your super power, you can create epic success.
It is a very rare Pisces who can stay in one place for long. Unless, of course, if that place is a concert, 3D movie, art gallery, yacht, casino, any place where there is a current of energy that follows creativity, mysticism, or leisure. Pisces like to be where creative people abound, so if you look around social gatherings such as a writers club, a backstage party, or auditions of any kind, you’ll probably find a big school of these Fish.
Pisces people, as you well know, are rarely ambitious, at least in the worldly sense. You seldom, if ever, have your eye on the executive desk, the corner office, or the gold medal. Somehow, many of you still get there. Some practitioners say that a Pisces seldom becomes wealthy unless they inherit or marry into money. The Pisces philosophy is basically that the money doesn’t matter, the lifestyle does.
This lack of ambition is not a willful act of rebellion, it is a matter of simply not wanting to swim against the current. Instead, you are usually content to go with the flow. Although part of your life’s mission is to swim upstream, it takes a lot to get you to the crisis point that forces you to take action and make things happen.
If you’re familiar with the “Laws of Attraction,” you know that manifesting what you want is the result of not thinking about what you don’t want, and therefore not accumulating an obstructionist energy around you. If you are a typical Pisces, you should be giving a victory yell by now, because this is an important defense mechanism of yours: you have this incredible ability to shrug off trouble and negativity. Couple that with an optimism that comes from the core of your being and you have all you need to get through the day. No matter how hard you are hit by the blows of fate, you will either rescue yourself through this feeling or withdraw into a fantasy and re-organize your worldview in order to cope.
Knowing is one thing, putting it into action is entirely another. The constant thoughts about victimization, fear of betrayal, and other negative ideas that are constantly running through your head need to be replaced by thoughts of what you want. Pisces will instead think “I’ll never be able to afford…” or “the odds are too small” or “I never win anything.” Pisces, your self-defeating tendencies are the switches that turn the manifestation off. There’s a little more to it than this, but believe me, it’s your sign of the Zodiac that the whole concept belongs to.
It’s common enough among members of the Water signs to mention that you, Pisces, seem unusually prone to addictive behavior. Maybe this has to do with the “going with the current” thing inherent in members of your sign.This is why it’s important to train yourself to be strong enough to swim against that current and relocate upstream when necessary. When you look at successful Pisces people of history, it’s going against the authority and status quo that enabled their contributions to humanity, not their plunge forward into sensuality and dissipation. Once you start going for the fun and the achievement in what you do, and not the money, success is yours. Not particularly competitive, it’s your natural brilliance that leads you to the heights, or sometimes to the depths, of human experience.
This power to navigate the entire spectrum of human emotions explains why so many luminaries of show business share your sign. In fact, even those Pisces who never sit anywhere but in the audience live almost as if they were method acting. Many Piscean writers and psychologists think in terms of one’s “monologue” or “narrative.” Even the military ad, “if your life story was a book, would anyone want to read it?” must have stopped a lot of Pisces in their tracks. You are always ready to tell, or live, a good story, having been given a life in such an amazing sign of the Zodiac.
Being ruled by both Water and Neptune, your mind has a bit of a tendency to wander. But these energies also make you very psychic and intuitive. These skills help you in all areas, including friendship, work, and love. So although you can get lost in dreamland sometimes, you can usually find a way to use it to your advantage. Having problems in love? Discuss a dream with your lover as the star and problems will fizzle away. Fantasies also take a big role in your love life, and you will stay with any partner that honors that. If you aren’t sure where to go in work, if you dream it, success will come. Being open to the world is a superpower of yours, but it can get very draining at times. Retreat to your cave when you need to, be sure that you let others know your intent, and they will be more than happy to wait for you until your “you” time is over.
You aren’t the leader of anything, and you are okay with that, especially when it comes to work. It’s not that you are lazy, it’s just that too much responsibility stresses you out. In most careers, emotions are considered a weakness, but you can find a way to use them to make money, since you are emotionally motivated all of the time. You’re best at creating. You are by nature a visionary. Express those visions in writing, poetry, art, music, acting, or other creative ways, and you can find a way to make bank from them. You’ve got a natural way of expressing yourself so that you pull at the heartstrings of others. That is your key to success. Make sure you are not looking for the easy road, though. Your success is likely to come by hard work, and many Pisceans will never live up to what they could achieve because of their own self-doubts and inhibitions. Work in theater, communication, writing, or the arts, will help you tap into your dreamy and creative super powers, and even create serious success for you.
Love & Relationships
Anyone that has ever loved a Pisces knows just how lucky they are. You are, without question, the most romantic sign of the zodiac. You are embodied by the Knight of Cups in the Tarot, because big overt gestures of romance are your favorite thing to do. You love to sit and talk about love for hours, and if it’s romantic, you are all over it. You love love! You have an empathy bone that is unmatched in the Zodiac, because your Watery nature has you soaking up every emotion around you like a sponge. Your lovers and partners are grateful for this. Their pain is your pain, and you will do whatever it takes to ease it. As a Mutable Sign, however, you do have a bit of a tendency to wander in love and romance. If there is any complaint from your partners, that would be the one. As a Water sign however, you are in relationships for the long haul. All you need is a partner that can satisfy your ever-changing needs and show you constant gratitude for the dreamy romantic fantasizer that you are.

Astrology can reveal a lot, but there’s much more to it than what Sun sign you are. At the very heart of astrology — and of Tarot, palmistry, sacred geometry, even ceremonies and rituals — are the four elements. These are Fire, Earth, Water, and Air.
If you think about it, we need these four elements—all of them—in order to survive on the planet. We heat and cook and purge with fire. We grow things in the Earth; it is the foundation of our existence, and we return to it when our life has ended. We need water to survive; it grows the plants of the earth and quenches our thirst; our bodies are approximately 60% water, and the Earth itself is approximately 70% water. We need air to breathe. Even our words are given life by our breath when we speak them out loud.
So, you can see, the elements are very important indeed!
The Water signs are always masculine, or positive. If you were born a Cancer, a Scorpio, or a Pisces, then you are a Water sign.
See if you recognize yourself in these points:
- You take on the mood of your environment.
- You’re ruled by your emotions.
- Sensitive, intuitive, and receptive
- Creative and artistic
- Motivated by emotions
- Compassionate, understanding, and kind.
- You need to be surrounded by beauty.
- You need to feel secure.
- You like to help people.
- You need to be accepted by others.
- Need alone time
- You try to handle your feelings carefully.
- Dreamy and prone to fantasizing.
- You need
completecommitment from others.
- It’s hard for you to say no.
- You’re emotional, although sometimes you don’t show it.
- You have trouble dealing with ugliness or harsh reality.
- You don’t like too many responsibilities.
Of course, not all Water signs are going to behave the same. Even two Scorpios can be very different from each other, because of the way that the rest of their planets fall. Remember, the Sun sign is only one part of astrology! There’s so much more to discover.
Even though all water signs are going to be very similar, there’s a lot of difference between them. This is because of the triplicities, or the qualities of those signs. Just like there are four elements—Fire, Earth, Air, Water—there are three triplicities. These are Cardinal, Mutable, and Fixed.
- You aren’t particularly interested in leadership.
- You enjoy discussing new ideas.
- You aren’t particularly assertive or dominant.
- You’re willing to follow others.
- You’re able to work as part of a team.
- You’re content to be in the middle of things.
- You’re cautious about taking risks.
- You’re responsible and trustworthy.
Water Element: Pisces
As a Pisces, you’re the last sign of the Zodiac, and even though you’re a Water element through and through, there’s a little bit of all of the other Signs in you, too. You’re where the proverbial buck stops, and you bridge the gap between reality and fantasy, between what was, and what’s yet to come. You don’t get too heated about anything, and you’re certainly not greedy. It’s not that you don’t appreciate the finer things in life — you do — you just realize that they’re replaceable.
It’s easy for you to go with the flow, but that may not lead you to your highest happiness or your greatest success. You need to push yourself — something that you might not be motivated to do. However, it’s only when you have done so and see exactly what you can accomplish that you’ll ever be really satisfied with what life has to offer to you. You have the potential of achieving great success in your chosen field. You just need to make sure that you’re doing something to get you there, not spending your time just fantasizing about it.
You’re usually very easygoing, but when your temper does rise, others need to stay clear. You’re like an angry sea bashing against the rocky shore when you are agitated. You get bitter and sarcastic, and you can be incredibly rude and bombastic. However, like that angry sea, the storm will eventually subside, and you’ll return back to the calmness that soothes and placates. You don’t get angry often, because you really do have a tendency to see the world as you want it to be, rather than how it really is. That smooths away the roughness of reality for you, but you have to make sure that you’re not escaping into a fantasy world too often.
You have good intuition and a great memory, and you genuinely want to help others, but they often don’t understand you. You have so many interests, and they’re so varied that people may see you as too changeable for their liking. The worst thing you can do is try to be who someone wants you to be rather than exploring and embracing your authentic self. Too often you hide your emotions, making light of situations that make you feel uncomfortable, trying to fit in with where you are rather than leaving that situation in order to find a better one. If there’s one area of your life where you need to focus, it is in making firm decisions and choices that won’t compromise who you are, and then sticking to them.
Here are some of your more prominent traits.
- Not overly concerned with money.
- Not greedy
- Go with the flow
- Rarely feel insulted
- Not impressed by bravado
- Need freedom to follow your own dreams
- Forgive easily
- You have a soothing personality.

- You resonate with the natural world.
- Artistic, imaginative, and creative
- You enjoy helping people.
- Compassionate and understanding
- You want the world to be a better place.
- You have a good imagination.
Of course, even with your easy-going and dreamy nature, you’ve got some weaknesses, some areas where you need to work on building your character.
- You see the world as you want to see it, not as it really is.
- Tend to be irresponsible.
- Gullible and easily deluded
- You make things harder than they need to be.

The key to a Pisces’ success is knowing how to live in the real world. It’s all too easy for you to want to escape to your world of illusion, where things aren’t so harsh, where you can see what you want to see. There’s a time and a place for this, but you cannot stay there all the time. Reality can be a harsh place, and if it is ever going to have a chance of becoming gentler, kinder, and more beautiful, it needs you to see it as it truly is. When you devote yourself to pursuing your own dreams, then you can help to make the world a better place for everyone.
