Pisces, the twelfth and final sign of the zodiacal cycle, is a water sign ruled by Jupiter and Neptune. It is also one among the four mutable signs. People born between 19th of February and 20th of March are referred to as Pisceans and their zodiacal sign is ‘Pisces’, the Fish. The qualities of all the other eleven zodiac signs are merged in Pisces. As it is, they can adapt whatever character is apt for them; hence they are commonly referred to as the ‘Chameleons of Zodiac’. So it is really difficult to pin down the characters of Pisces. In zodiac, Pisces is the opposite of Virgo. We are presently in the ‘Age of Pisces’! Pisces is a Latin word for fish. It is represented by two fishes swimming in opposite direction which depicts the dual personality of the Pisceans. People born under Pisces astrological sign are selfless, reasonable, easygoing, submissive, emotional, highly intuitive, spiritual, dreamy, mystical and compassionate. They are the quietest among all the signs. They are very good workers but when it comes to things they don’t like to do, they become lazy! Pisceans are quite complicated people. It takes a great deal to understand them. But their understanding nature is what attracts other people to them! Here are some common traits found in most Pisceans
10. Weak willed and Indecisive
Piscean people are weak willed and lack motivation. They are indecisive and easily swayed. These are the qualities that pull them back even though they have some other unique abilities. They may want to do something but they end up doing something else. Their craving for perfection will make them to over think and they turn out to be indecisive. Their low confidence is acting as a big obstacle in their path to success. Feeling insecure and not trusting themselves are the biggest drawbacks and make them weak willed.
Pisces-born people don’t have a positive perspective on life. If things don’t turn out as they expect, Pisceans lose their confidence to carry on. They don’t believe that anything can go right and don’t see good in anything. They have a tendency to focus on the negative or unfavourable part and stay on the gloomy side. They look on the dark side of things and have very less hope for the future. They have the ‘half empty glass’ attitude! They fail to see that the glass is half full. Their pessimism often leads to procrastination and many disadvantages.
This is a less common trait we see in the present society thus making it a great quality to possess. Most people born under Pisces sign have this trait. We find many selfless Pisceans who show this character in the form of love they give, small sacrifices they make for their loved ones and their ability to listen to other people patiently. They are not self centered and are concerned about others besides them. They are ready to help others whenever possible. Pisceans have giving nature and are very generous with everyone. With this quality they have the capability to make others feel loved.
Pisceans have the escapism tendencies. They are the type of people who prefer to escape into their world of fantasy over handling the reality. When anything goes wrong, they blame it on their bad luck or something else instead of dealing with it and they just retreat into their fantasy world. They pity themselves for the discontents in their life and escape from the agony through drug addiction or drinking. Their inability to cope with reality is what draws them to these escape routes. However, this escapist nature helps them to be more creative and artistic as they allow their mind to wander in the fantasy world.
Pisceans are idealistic and want everything to be perfect around them. They are not satisfied until everything is exactly the way they want it. These people tend to be introverted and driven by high values. Their primary goal in life is to make the world a better place and in that course, find the meaning of their life. With such high ideals they don’t understand how to balance them with their requirements in daily life. This leads to an inner conflict making them quite confused about it. They need to figure it out or else they have to face a rough time.
Pisceans are very sensitive people. They are loving and appreciative. They are easily offended due to their sensitive nature. Besides being self aware Pisces born persons are conscious about how they impact others with their behavior. If they ever hurt somebody, it hurts them even more emotionally. They appreciate the good nature in others and try to encourage them. They are the gentle and deep kind of people. They feel too much joy or sorrow over small things. They take everything to heart and pave way for extreme feelings.
Pisces is one of the signs of duality. The two Piscean fish are connected in a yin yang, balancing the dreamy fantasy and the reality. It indicates one fish swimming upstream and the other swimming downstream. This is the reason why Pisces is changeable and is confused between the two directions. The two sidedness of the Pisceans is why we can’t decide their character. One side of the Pisces is so comfortable with the reality while the other side prefers to stay in the dream world. They are faced with the consciousness of reality and the unconsciousness of the spiritual world!
Pisceans are instinctive and have an extraordinary intuitive ability. Pisces rely on their intuition to take decisions over logic, reasoning and facts. The Pisces people follow their own intuitive feelings in activities which are amusing to them without having any other intention or motive beyond the entertaining factor. Nicolaus Copernicus, the famous astronomer, who was born under Pisces zodiacal sign, is a perfect example to prove the intuitive nature of Pisces. He formulated the heliocentric theory and proved that it was earth which revolved around the sun but not the universe revolving around the earth. This could not have been possible without the Pisces’s ability to follow their intuition! Albert Einstein, a Piscean himself, quoted “The only really valuable thing is intuition.”
People born under the Pisces Zodiac are compassionate beings with delicate feelings. They are concerned about the wellbeing of others and are kind and caring towards them. These people have the desire to ease the suffering of other people and comfort them. They understand the distress of others and tend to alleviate it. In fact, they feel their trouble so closely that it is impossible for them to say no to people in trouble. A meaningful life is the one in which people seek happiness in helping others. Pisces are doing very well in that matter as they are so compassionate!
1. Imaginative and Creative
The mind of Pisces born is rarely blank as their vivid imaginations are always running through it. They are highly imaginative and creative. This is their greatest strength. They can come up with some ingenious ideas. They can use their talent to achieve great heights in music, art and literature. They can produce good results in photography, architecture, film making, dancing and acting. Rihanna and Justin Bieber are example of Pisceans who succeeded in music; Bruce Willis, Drew Barrymore and Daniel Craig have made their mark in acting while Dr Seuss, another Piscean, became a famous writer and poet. Steve Jobs is an exemplary example of Pisces’s imaginative and creative traits. He was the co-founder and CEO of Apple computers and was a great visionary and a creative genius. The imagination of Pisces is what drives them to be more creative. They get this creative energy from their fantasy world!
