In Greek mythology, Pisces represented the two fish that Aphrodite and Cupid transformed into in order to escape their destruction. While amusing, the fact that the god and goddess of love escaped ties in very well with the general Pisces devotion to love and romance, as well as a frequent desire to escape.

Pisces Traits And Behaviors

Pisces men and women are emotionally driven, creative and unbelievably compassionate. Their imagination and creative skill often catapult them into the most amazing careers because they can think well outside of the box. The well-known Dr. Seuss was a Pisces, and for any that grew up to his books, it is not hard to see why. Pisces is one of the most empathetic signs of the zodiac, and they will zero in on people who need emotional support with ease. They are selfless to a fault and are frequently ensnared by the emotions of others for better or for worse. He or she will hurt when you hurt, cry when you cry, and remain by your side until you can smile again. The extreme sensitivity of the fish is both a blessing and a curse. On the one hand, their emotions are always honest as plain for all to see. On the other, they are far too trusting and it is easy to manipulate their selfless nature, and their desire to help.


Despite a clear love for aiding people, Pisces-born are natural introverts who cherish time alone and away from the world. While this should come as no surprise as dreamers, many people fail to understand that even the selfless Pisces needs to recharge sometime. An overwhelmed Pisces can easily sink into depression, or find much more detrimental ways to escape reality. One of the hardest traits for those who love Pisces to come to grips with is how passionate they become with their current focus. It is the best feeling in the world when the focus is on you, but if it becomes their latest literary or artistic masterpiece or even a song they are working on, it can be hard to deal with. It takes the right type of person to love a Pisces and understand what it means to be the treasured fish.

Pisces Guidance And Needs

The primary goal of any Pisces should be to address your extensive emotional needs first. Your emotions are what make you, and very frequently represent what can break you as well. Chasing romance and your dreams should come second, as disaster can strike if those plans are crushed suddenly and you are not emotionally prepared to deal with it. For Pisces, more than any other, complementary partners are important. Your weaknesses should not be ignored in favor of bonding with someone who is a mirror of yourself. A soulmate who can pick up your slack and vice versa is your best defense in what is often a cold and brutal world. Although some fish may plug their ears, it needs to be said: Occasional affection is not worth a lifetime of mistreatment. Far too many Pisces become trapped in relationships that are toxic, endlessly being manipulated emotionally into staying or persistently hoping for better days.

Accepting who you are as a Pisces does not mean neglecting to change. You are a mutable sign and should embrace it. You do not need to be the stereotypical fish that struggles with responsibility, cleanliness, and temptation. The beauty of your visionary capabilities is that, like Aphrodite and Cupid, you can become the person you need to be. Selflessness is an amazing trait and truly reveals the kind, gentle person you truly are but it must be balanced with caring for your own needs. Remember that depending on the sign of your partner, they may not be as emotionally expressive and in tune as you are. It is not a weakness on their part so do your best to communicate your feelings and needs in a way they can understand, such as verbally.

Pisces men and women are uniquely complex, emotionally connected, and beautifully creative. No two Pisces are alike as their wondrous imagination pulls them in a myriad of different directions and interests. It is hard not to be captivated by the passionate and charismatic dreamer of the zodiac, so don’t try! Their friendly and caring nature will make them one of the best friends you could ask for. Discovering why you are the way you are from the basics of your sign can offer refreshing insight, but can only go so far.
