Pisces people have a very weak sense of self, and that is why they are often characterised as victims and easy to lead on. Their sense of self-sacrifice, however, makes them very compassionate and tolerant, and it is when they consciously choose to incarnate this role that their better self rises to the surface.

Pisces, the twelfth and last sign of the Zodiac is one of the most imaginative. The personality of Pisces can be described as a very spiritual one.The sign’s escapism derives from its Mutable Quality, while its artistic nature comes from the sign’s association with the Water Element. Keep in mind that the quality of your sign is very important as it largely shapes your compatibility with other zodiac signs.
Neptune being the ruler of the sign of Pisces, perfectly explains the main characteristic of people belonging to this sign, that is remaining a dreamer no matter what life brings. The tendency to discard reality is prominent in the Piscean personality. Struggling to get away from reality is exactly the reason why people under this sign tend to experiment with substances and become addicted easier than most signs. Being a dreamer requires a vivid imagination which goes hand in hand with people under this sign being very artistic. The Pisces personality longs to draw, compose, sculpt and not only works of art, but itself as well. Pisces is under a constant state of reshaping itself so as to get closer to the end-goal that is to reach a higher state of existence while still in a human body. The absence of the sense of Ego may be behind this, as in order to become one with something outside yourself you need to renounce your sense of self.

The Pisces Man
Pisces is the sign of myths and there’s a lot of them written about these men, like them being dreamy pushovers, whereas the reality is quite different. Perhaps they subconsciously rail against this popular perception by being forceful, driven and quite particular about everything. They are soft hearted and romantic once you cut your way through all the thicket.
How to win the heart of a Pisces Man
During the two world wars rationing dictated that scrappy old slivers of soap that we’d fling out these days were squished together to make a ‘new’ one. Pisces is a bit like this really because these guys are like a squished together version of the other 11 signs, and he can be just as slippery as a bar of soap. To win his heart? Please let us know once you’ve figured that one out!
The Pisces Woman
Welcome to Lady Pisces’ whimsical world. This lovely dreamer and bleeding heart of the zodiac lives in La La land. She’s an escape artist who lives for romance and you’ve gotta be able to play fast and loose with the facts to stay by her side. Truth is relative after all (she’ll say) and all versions are equally good, especially those that make you feel better. Lady Pisces has a boundless imagination. She prefers fantasy over reality, her world a curious blend of the two. A paradox in herself, she’s sensitive, compassionate and empathetic, yet could abandon you in the midst of a crisis because she can’t stand to see you suffer.
Generous to a fault, regular retreats are essential to her sanity and physical health. That and someone who can protect her from the harsh realities of this world. Lady Pisces will naturally gather every stray on her doorstep, her phone-line busy for hours with people pouring their heart out as she struggles to write that email, cook or put the kids to bed. She simply cannot hang up on a soul in need. Indeed, if it were up to her she’d give away her last penny rather than say No. And she will spend yours too so watch out! Help Lady Pisces achieve her dreams by giving her some proper boundaries.
How Pisces acts when they first fall in love
Pisces acts when they first fall in love. Yes you read that right. They put on an act or get into character, and their character changes to reflect the mood of the person that’s hooked their heart. Perhaps even their accent. This doesn’t make them phonies because multi-dimensional is what they are, as we all are to varying degrees - they’re just a bit more ‘honestly transparent’ about it.
