These mystics love gifts of all kinds, but especially ones that help them escape the harsh realities of life. A bottle of champagne, a kaleidoscope, or a book of fairy tales will appeal to your Fishy friends. And because Pisces is a Water sign, it’s a good bet they’ll appreciate bath salts, foaming cleansers and shower gels. If you’d like to give something really special, a digital camera will make a big hit with this natural-born photographer. Looking for a romantic gift? Choose a gilt-edged volume of love poetry.
You hear a loud knocking on your door and open it to find three IRS men ready to rip into your tax return. They want you to account for every latte expense you listed and are suspicious of your self-employed income, too. Tearfully, you open the shoebox where you shoved your receipts to face the sorting and organizing you dread.
They’ll be in their element by or on the water, so perhaps try a day trip along a scenic river, or an excursion to see the dolphins. Pisces is fascinated by the “otherworldly” and might enjoy stopping by the local metaphysical shop. They’re also drawn to art, music and film, so try an evening of imaginative escape and entertainment. Getting to know them takes time, and you’ll get further in quiet environments where you can talk one on one.
What we love about Pisces
Pisces is the most compassionate and sensitive sign. They are able to empathize with everyone, so their friends, family and even acquaintances will always feel cared for and loved.
Why Pisces drives us nuts
Dreamy Pisces can have trouble distinguishing between fantasy and reality, and their tendency for escapism can result in problems with co-dependency, drugs, alcohol or other bad habits.
Like your Tarot card, The Moon, you are a creature of ever-changing moods. You do best when you attune to nature’s cycles and use them to refresh your intuitive powers. The Moon rules emotions, which are your strong suit, especially when you use your compassionate nature to help others.
The Pisces woman is often overly passive and codependent. She may suffer from certain fears and anxieties, including agoraphobia, and be susceptible to drug and alcohol abuse. She can live in a world of fantasy and be pathologically dishonest. She sometimes lacks ambition despite her love for luxury. As a partner or parent, she can be inappropriately overbearing and overprotective.
The Pisces man often exhibits some form of messiah complex. He can be pathologically jealous of others’ successes. He is hypersensitive and prone to drug and alcohol abuse. He may be oedipal. “Attuned” to mystical occurrences, he may suffer from hallucinations, paranoia, or schizophrenia.
Females in feminine signs (earth, water) are aligned with the gender polarity of their sign and thus embody the quality-element combination of the sign. The mutable-water status of Pisces determines that she is like the ever-changing sea, as well as the primordial soup or nurturing womb from whence all life springs. The sea represents an illusory dream-time, Pisces recognizing little difference between what is imaginary and what is true or possible.
Males in feminine signs (earth, water) are not aligned with the gender polarity of the sign and thus enact instead of embody the quality-element combination of the sign. Pisces man is not the soupy, dreamy mix that Pisces woman can be, but rather one drifting in a sea of reverie like a lucid dreamer, imagining his intentions into reality.
On or near water, especially the sea. The movie theater.
