A Summary of the Pisces Zodiac Sign

The Pisces zodiac sign is a dreamy and psychic one. This is due to the combined energies of the Water element and the Watery planet Neptune that rule over Pisces. They may not be the biggest doer of the zodiac, but they are one of the most creative and also one of the most psychic! 

Pisces is the twelfth sign of the zodiac, meaning that they are the oldest and wisest of all the signs.

As the Mutable Water sign, they are also extremely flexible and fill up the vessel of whatever environment they are in. However, Pisces is known for their emotions being a bit all over the map and are known to retreat if the emotions run too high. When they use their sensitivities as their superpower, they can create epic success.

Pisces is an accepting, easy-going personality type who can get along with anyone.

Their spirit reflects the virtues of empathy, care, and gentleness. Pisces can flow with whatever life brings their way with an almost celestial sense of peace. They are compassionate and wise and tend to find strength and meaning in their relationships.

Symbol: The Two Fish

Pisces is represented by two fish swimming, usually captured by a string or unified band. They are portrayed as swimming in two directions, representing the Piscean duality and their continuity as they round out the 12-sign cycle. 

The Pisces constellation of the two fish lies within the northern sky and, in Roman mythology, is known to represent Aphrodite and Eros as they transformed to escape the monster Typhon.

The Pisces astrology sign is known to be creative, usually due to their ability to straddle between two worlds as they often swim deep into the depth of duality: life vs. death, dream vs. reality, etc.

The emotional ocean that they call home allows them to feel things and connect to others in a way that can only be represented by two creatures linked together.

Pisces love to keep close relationships and feel their way through the ocean deep. But they must beware of the current—not everyone flows through as easily as they do.

Element: Water

Water Element

The Water element reflects the internal well of emotions and feelings we carry within. Water is also a symbol of strong creativity and passion. Those with the Water sign are naturally attracted to bodies of water and seek harmony in all aspects of their lives. 

Imbalance or conflict for any of the zodiac signs that carry the Water sign is a cause of concern and will become a top priority needed to be resolved.

Taking the time to process their thoughts and understand their feelings causes Water zodiac signs to seem a bit slower, although this contributes to their strong emotional intelligence.

Besides Pisces, when looking for a friend that can sit for long conversations and offer empathy, you can find comfort in the zodiac signs that carry the Water sign:

Ruling Planet: Neptune

Pisces’ ruling planet is Neptune.

In ancient mythology, Neptune and Poseidon are known as the gods of water and sea. Neptune emotes the compassionate, creative energy that characterizes the Pisces personality type.

Neptune is deep, vast and blue, reflecting the depth of emotion that the Pisces sign has in common with other Water signs. They draw inspiration from Neptune not only in creativity but also draws the power to develop strong spirituality among those who carry this zodiac sign.

Pisces Quadruplicity

Even though all Water signs will be very similar, the differences come from triplicities—the qualities of those signs. Like there are four elements, there are three triplicities. These are Cardinal, Mutable, and Fixed. 

Pisces is a Mutable sign, meaning they are flexible, adjustable, and open to change. If you have Pisces in your birth chart, you provide a calming personality and presence no matter what friend group, family, or team they are a part of.

Never eager to instigate change, Pisces will always be able to attach to any transition and see their way through. As with their Water sign counterparts, they hold a negative polarity in the zodiac that lives in strong emotions and is deeply connected to their internal feelings.

Key Personality Characteristics

As with many Water signs, Pisces seem to go with the flow of life and are more prone to sit back than to take the initiative and start the action (as their Fire sign counterparts would). More than any sign, they can understand what it takes to take ethereal, distant ideas and connect them to reality, allowing them to become exceptional artists.

The Pisces sign is not greedy or concerned with material wealth. Still, it focuses their value on sentimental connections they have developed in their lives and the close relationships that they see as vital foundations to their identity. Pisces may be well-liked by many people but rely on and draw strength from a very close-knit circle of friends.

They can make for outstanding innovators but need the push to achieve their greatest potential.

The Pisces zodiac forgives easily and is calming to introduce into any situation. Intensely focused on connection, this zodiac sign makes a great addition to any party or dinner table, always ready for conversation and games.

Our fish friends are also strong in their compassion for others and feel fulfilled when they can help others.

Top Traits

Pisces’ top traits include:

  • Emotional Intelligence
  • Creativity
  • Easy-going
  • Likable

They are the most artistic and creative zodiac sign in all of astrology and have the ability to create powerful expressions of their own ideas, feelings, and emotions.

Pisces signs are also malleable in the sense that they are one of the most flexible zodiac signs when change is introduced. Those under this sign are sociable and solid friends or partners with almost every personality type.

One of the key traits for any Pisces is their ability to build bridges with the most varied, different kinds of personalities and still establish a genuine friendship with. Artistic creativity, emotional intuition, and the ability to go with the flow all define key traits of the Pisces zodiac sign.

Challenges & Weaknesses

Pisces’ weaknesses are that they can be overly trusting and susceptible to having their creative talents taken advantage of.

Being too “go with the flow” sets this sign back, creating an inherent weakness in their ability to take action when they should. Pisces sometimes seem lazy due to this weakness and fall into a victim mentality where criticism is not warmly welcomed. 

Yet, this sign is deeply optimistic and chooses to see the best in all things; however, this might cause them to sometimes seem gullible and not realistic when objectivity would be more valuable to them. 

Pisces During Conflict

When facing conflict, Pisces needs to focus on their responses and demeanor. They feel strongly and also get defensive quickly.

Responding with sarcasm, quick slips out of control, or emotional responses all drive them into greater conflict because of their inability to control their own emotions during times of trouble.

Pisces often get involved in situations or others’ conflicts. For this sign, to navigate conflict successfully, they must:

  1. Focus on not letting emotions get the best of them or get too attached.
  2. Avoid putting themselves in situations that do not directly involve them.

Relationships & Sex: Understanding the Pisces Lover

To the surprise of many, Pisces is the most romantic of all zodiac signs.

They embody romantic gestures and the desire to ensure their loving partner is happy. When they embrace their inner lover at heart, they thrive in the ability to express their affections to those they care about.

The Watery nature represented in their horoscope allows them to be unmatched in their ability to share and feel emotions – love most of all. These fish friends are masters of sympathizing and empathy and make for incredible lifelong partners.

Pisces in love is romantic, emotional, and genuine. So, they need to feel safe first before being vulnerable. This feeling of security will allow them to express intimacy without worry.

Emotional connection is of utmost importance to them and serves as the key to success for amazing, meaningful sex.
