Sun in Pisces

(The Sun is in Pisces from February 19 to March 20, depending on the year).

As the twelfth and last sign of the zodiac, Pisces contains within itself a little experience of all the signs. This gives Pisces Suns the ability to identify with people from all walks of life—from all backgrounds—in some way. These individuals are not only changeable and adaptable; they have open minds and tremendous understanding. But Pisces itself is often misunderstood. Pisces Suns may spend a good portion of their lives yearning for understanding, and the other part in a state of divine discontent. Suffering is sometimes glamorized in the Piscean world. Sun in Pisces people are frequently pegged as wishy-washy, but this is all a matter of opinion. What you will find behind a vaguely directionless, spacey manner is a deep person with real dreams. Their dreams are more than getting that picket fence or making it up the corporate ladder. Pisces are tuned in to a higher purpose and their dreams transcend the individual. A deep love for humanity and compassion that knows no bounds is found with this placement of the Sun.

Pisceans are not known to be cutthroat business types, nor are they given to throwing themselves out into the world in an aggressive manner. But make no mistake about it; Pisces can be extraordinarily successful when given the chance to express themselves. The arts, marketing, music, teaching, drama, healing arts...these are all fields in which Pisces can find expression. Their imagination, attunement to humanity, and remarkable intuition endow them with enviable gifts of insight and creativity. Pisces is a sensitive sign—both sensitive to criticism and sensitive to others' feelings. Easily touched by human suffering, at least in theory, Pisces wouldn't hurt a fly. They believe in people, are deeply hurt by compassionless human behavior, and have a hard time saying no. Harsh realities are avoided either through escapist behavior or self-delusion; but every now and again reality does raise its ugly head, and hits Pisces over the head. This is a sad time indeed. Pisceans retreat into their own world, self-pitying and giving pep talks to themselves ("I will never trust again!"). Rest assured, though, that these periods are rather short-lived and even useful. Pisces seems to derive energy from their (generally short) bouts of self-pity. They come back stronger, with a spring in their step, ready to face the world again, and just as, if not more, compassionate and trusting as they were before. Some might even wonder if Pisces finds pleasure in suffering. Sometimes this is the case, but most of the time, Pisces pulls a lot of creative energy from sadness. Pisces is the poet or artist with angst, although this trait is often more apparent with Moon in Pisces.

Some find Pisces' tendency to be late for appointments, spaced out behavior, and absent-mindedness amount to irresponsibility. Pisces would be shocked to know this, however. Who me? Pisces wonders. Irresponsible? Pisces Suns absolutely care—their love knows no bounds—but their retreats from ordinary life (whether they are as simple as daydreams or actual departures) that they so seem to need every now and again are not always understandable to no-nonsense signs, such as Virgo or Aries.

Many Pisces seem almost allergic to things like shopping lists, maps, directions, and instructions, and for some brave souls, even watches — they prefer to feel their way through life than to follow some plan.

We find plenty of artists, poets, and musicians with Sun (and other personal planets) in Pisces. Piscean themes are woven throughout the songs of Billy Corgan of the Smashing Pumpkins and Kurt Cobain of Nirvana, for example. Sun in Pisces: This is the most theoretical, or the least personal, of the Water signs. It seems that Pisces people arrive in the universe through a difficult birth: the mother may have a long or difficult labor, or the child is born with some 'strange' disease, like eczema. Often Pisces children get a fever or the flu early in life, and several days are spent worrying whether they'll make it through the experience without brain damage. They pick up this worry from their parents because Pisceans are so intuitive. They begin to worry a lot about their health and welfare at an early age.

The mother of a Pisces is a lady who worries a lot and who is afraid of everything: she worries about getting robbed, mugged and killed. She worries about life - and in the middle of all her worry she plays the martyr role. She will accept her fate, she sighs, and the little Pisces child soaks up these vibrations. These children are so intuitive and all-knowing that they often make their parents uncomfortable. One mother of a Pisces confided in me that her brother came for a brief visit when her child was six months old. When the child was about four, the brother reappeared and the Pisces asked uncle where his beard was, since he'd had one the last time the child saw him. The mother couldn't believe what she'd heard. She had no photographs of her brother, and had not discussed his beard with the child. The memory these children have is terrific. Karmic astrologers feel that Pisces types bring a lot of past-life fears, apprehensions and knowledge with them into this life. Perhaps this is why Pisceans are so creative and intuitive. However, the early childhood environment usually creates a fear of developing their intuition - and as spiritual as this sign is, they often fear exploring the occult, the religious or the more spiritual sides of life. It may be that their fear of spirituality or their fear of developing their intuition comes from the fact that they knew too much as children; that every time they came up with some interesting information they were either turned off, disciplined, or made fun of by one of their parents. So Pisceans bury the spiritual self deep inside. The more intuitive they are, the more anti-religion they may be; the more psychic they are, the more they're against the occult in any form.

The more Pisceans reject their natural creativity and reject their natural intuitive abilities and try to become hard, rational adults like some of the other sign types, the more miserable they become. It isn't unusual for them to immerse themselves in alcohol or drugs. They seldom become skid-row alcoholics because they enjoy the easy life too much. They are the 'miraculous' workaholics who drink at night but manage to show up for work every morning. They can be the 'week-end' alcoholics or drug abusers. Sometimes they go for alcohol because they can't cope with their intuitive or psychic experiences. If these experiences don't manifest during the day, they sometimes manifest at night during dreaming. The dream experience can be so overwhelming for Pisceans that they start drinking, since alcohol dulls the dream process. Prophetic dreams can be hard for anyone to take when one doesn't know why one is having them or doesn't know how to work with the energy in a more positive sense.

The Pisces female enters her adult life with many of her mother's expectations and habits. She often resents the power of her mother, and she also resents her father because he didn't stand up for himself in the marital relationship. Pisces picks men that are as weak as her father was, and then resents them for being that way. She tends to choose someone she feels sorry for when she picks her first marriage partner. After she becomes conscious of what she has done, she begins to feel sorry for herself - and a little bit of the martyr begins to come out. She confuses sympathy with love, and doesn't understand that a love relationship can't be shared with someone she feels pity for. Pisces should use her strong altruistic tendencies for work rather than marriage. She suffers a great deal, either with an incompetent lover or husband, or with someone who mistreats her. When she learns to pick better material, and decides that although her mother suffered it isn't necessary for her to, she will get involved in healthy relationships.

The Pisces male makes the same mistakes as the Pisces female. When he is younger, he also marries a person he feels sorry for. Or, the first 'big' love affair is with someone who needs to be saved from herself or from something else. He soon finds that he has to take care of this woman all the time, and that he doesn't really have anyone to share his life with, and so he tries to get out of the relationship. However, if he fails to work his way out of the martyr syndrome that his mother taught him to be normal behavior, he will continue to make a martyr of himself in any relationship he forms. He will continue to expect to be a martyr, to be mistreated, and to be misused. He needs to learn to talk out his problems. When there are difficulties that need to be worked through in the process of a maturing relationship, he tends to withdraw and suffer. This is a habit he learned from Mom, and he doesn't know any other way to behave. He can, if he wants to, learn how to make a relationship work by giving as much as he expects to get. However, the Water signs have trouble giving in a personal sense. They're more concerned with getting; they worry about how much they'll get from a partnership. They don't get much guidance in their childhood environment to teach them the give-and-take necessary in a relationship.

Since Pisces is a theoretical sign, these people are interested in the theory behind the idea; and, much like the Aquarian, they are an impersonal group of people. They talk about feeling; they talk about spiritual evolvement; they talk about how spiritually evolved and conscious they are. But when the time comes for being understanding or open in their own personal relationships, they tend to be more verbal than actual. They are mother imitators, and whatever the mother gave the father is often what Pisceans give their partner, friends and business associates. Often the mother was a user; and Pisceans can use people too. Sometimes one hears from them only when they need something. They may never ask you how you are, or if you feel ok, but they'll tell you how miserable they feel and how much they need. When one observes Pisceans over a long period of time, one begins to notice that they don't really need that much, that they aren't doing badly, and that they complain more than is necessary. One may even begin to suspect that they enjoy complaining. They are here to learn spiritual awareness. It seems that they bring a lot of knowledge from the 'other side'; but they are here to learn how to put this knowledge into practice.

As far as profession is concerned, Pisceans usually do quite well; they tend to get the breaks in life, and often wind up in positions they don't really have the background or experience for. They're usually drawn to the classical theatre, literature and art, or the humanitarian fields. They are also drawn to the pleasant social-service positions like a maître d' or manager of a great resort hotel, and positions that make a comfortable living. The creative Pisceans sometimes sell out, electing to take the easy money rather than using their creative energies. When this occurs, they suffer because the energy remains untapped. Some Pisceans may like money so much that the female can be drawn to the oldest profession in the world; she thinks she won't have to work too hard. Again, the spiritual urges in Pisceans hurt when such types of decisions are made, and they suffer later in life.

Pisces children need lots of encouragement in early childhood. They should be exposed to music and dance, and creative endeavors in general. They often live in a fantasy world full of imaginary playmates, creating a universe of their own when the family structure is too harsh for them to cope with. This ability to create fantasy can be channeled in such a way that the child becomes an extremely creative adult, offering wonderful things to the rest of the world. Einstein was a Pisces who used his retreat into the 'windows of the mind' to bring a new perspective to the scientific community. All Pisceans have a piece of this gift, and it's there to be used. However, in order that Pisceans may use their creative energies, they must give up the martyr role - unless, of course, they're going on the stage to act the part of Joan of Arc.

Sun in Pisces: The Pisces personality tends to be easy-going, sympathetic, trusting, kind, loving, charitable and modest; and not particularly interested in drawing attention to itself. You have a gift of understanding, although this may come about by using a psychic faculty which you can unconsciously rely upon to receive information. You tend to 'merge your mind' with another during communication; and information is transmitted, often bypassing the conscious mind.

Your approach to life and work will be orderly, although your inner states of mind, emotions and being will tend to be very changeable and fluid, reflecting the Piscean water affinity. You may be too impressionable, especially in your youth and early adulthood; and your life can be dominated in several ways by the power of your emotions and imaginative faculties. If you become committed towards supporting an idealistic cause, your involvement is likely to be an intense experience: partly because of the emotional attraction and energy expressed; and partly through the experience of disciplining your nature towards fulfilling any obligations and responsibilities that the 'cause' imposes upon you, and the inevitable inner struggle that usually occurs in such a context.

You may lack firm self-confidence, and are rarely keen to push yourself into situations of competition and aggression, preferring to make efforts to seek a harmonious resolution of problems and conflicts in any confrontational situation. Often, you may inwardly rely upon money and possessions to give you a sense of self-worth, and to enhance your confidence in your abilities to succeed in the world.

Potentially, you can be quite creative if you succeed in finding appropriate channels of expression; and the most attractive areas for you will be music, literature and the arts, especially when responses from your feeling nature are evoked, in addition to your mind. You tend to indulge in daydreams, partly as a form of evasion and escape from the demands of the real world; and you may have to be careful that you do not generate an inner climate of illusions, desires and wishes that prevent you from experiencing your actual reality, or even make you blind as to what is actually occurring; inner unfulfilled dreams can make you lose appreciation of life.

You appear to be a flexible and malleable person, but there is a strong streak of stubbornness that can emerge when you are provoked, and you are not as open-minded as you can seem. Often you get 'stuck' on ideas, beliefs and attitudes from which you can almost refuse to move; and, in a way, these tend to give you a sense of personal 'centre' amidst the ebbs and flows of your tidal feelings.

You will desire the 'ideal home and family', and chances for success depend upon the degrees of realism or illusion expressed by you in relationships, as your expectations may be too high and not easily attained. You are liable to be emotionally hurt and disappointed. Realistic perceptions of relationships may require prior disillusioning experiences. There is a tendency to initiate changes in relationships or environments which reflect a 'new start, new dreams to create and chase'. You will have a romantic attitude to your love affairs, and can be quite sentimental. Often you can be quite critical of your partner, projecting your qualities of self-doubt and supposed inadequacies or lack of certain qualities onto your partner, looking to him or her to provide you with these qualities that you lack. You need a reliable, methodical and efficient partner; and you will work to make any marriage a success, but you may be tempted to evade confrontation and crises, pushing problems away. You may have difficulty at times making decisions, and can be psychologically dependent on others.

You need to discover an inner faith, finding a clear direction and purpose to your life; and forms of humanitarian service may be a suitable path to look towards.

Sun in Pisces: People who have their Suns in Pisces are usually sensitive, shy, introverted, emotional and compassionate. Peace-loving, kind-hearted and passive, you recoil from all forms of violence, coarseness and aggression. Christianity, for instance, with its emphasis on peace and love, often is considered to be a Piscean religion. Your gentle spirit is easily bruised, and you need regular periods of quiet isolation, to rest, meditate or simply restore your inner balance.

You see your 'role' as the savior / martyr, and frequently help others at your own expense. Because Pisces is a non-personal sign, more concerned with the universal than the individual, you rarely consider yourself first. In fact, you may neglect yourself altogether: either through sacrificing yourself for an ideal, another person or God, through religious asceticism; or through ignoring your health and your body's needs. For this reason, Pisces sometimes is called the sign of self-undoing. At times, it may seem that you follow the most harmful or unproductive course, or get involved with people who aren't good for you. Your ego isn't very strong, and you may lack self-esteem and confidence. Consequently, your attitudes and behavior are sometimes self-destructive.

You are more concerned with others' well-being than your own, and want to save people from themselves. Sympathetic to the plight of the worlds' unfortunates, you'd like to bring home every stray animal and helpless soul you meet. You are easily taken in by a hard-luck story, and often leave yourself open to being used. Tender-hearted and non-judgmental, you are always there with a shoulder to cry on and a cup of herb tea for a friend in need. Friend and stranger alike tell you of their problems; and you not only commiserate with them, but actually feel their pain. You sympathetic and supportive nature is a soothing balm for those in need. However, you have to guard against letting others influence you too strongly or take advantage of you.

Your caring nature and concern for the welfare of others may lead you to a career in social services, psychology, nursing, nutrition, veterinary medicine or religion.

Your sensitivity to others allows you to tune into their unconscious sides, and you often seem, to know what they are thinking and feeling. As a result of your keen intuition and your fascination with the spiritual realm, you may become interested in the psychic or mystical arts.

Most probably, you have an artistic sensibility; and you may possess musical, poetic or other artistic talents. At the very least, you will probably appreciate art and music, and are sensitive to color, tone and rhythm. Overly idealistic, you sometimes find it hard to live in the physical world and deal with the harsh realities of earthly existence. The non¬physical realms may be more real to you than the physical one, and you rarely seem to have both feet on the ground. You might forget to pay the bills, keep appointments or put gas in the car. Your unwillingness to deal with practical issues might cause you to become dependent on others to take care of you physically and / or financially. At times you appear 'spacey' or unfocused, lost in daydreams and fantasies. This can be the source of great imagination and creativity - but it can also be dangerous if carried too far. You have a tendency to retreat into your own fantasy world in order to avoid responsibilities, painful experiences, or other difficult 'real-life' situations. In the extreme, you may escape through alcohol, drugs, insanity or religious isolation.

Your greatest gifts are your compassion and your all-encompassing love for the least as well as the greatest of God's creatures. Your greatest failing usually result from refusing to face facts and learn the lessons of earthly existence.

Pisceans may be multifaceted; sometimes confused; and able to be in touch with both heaven and earth, the spiritual and the material world, and also able to understand all the subtleties of thinking and feeling.

Pisceans are rather unworldly people who have their heads in the clouds and their feet just about anywhere from the ground upwards! Pisceans are gentle creatures who want to make the world a better place than it is now, but who may lack the energy or the mental co-ordination to do so. These subjects invariably choose to work in some kind of caring field, which could take them into anything from politics to animal welfare. They loathe the idea of vivisection, prison, restriction and punishment of any kind; and it is probably this which leads so many of them to find work as nurses, prison visitors or psychiatrists.

It seems that Pisceans grow to adulthood with painful memories which are left over either from their own childhood or possibly from a previous life. This makes them especially sensitive to the pain of others. In most cases, they respond to this by wanting to heal the world and to put right all the wrongs which they come across. Having said this, some Pisceans respond to the pain of others by lashing out and hurting the one who is suffering, presumably in order to push their own pain away in an attempt to relegate it to some far off corner. This kind of syndrome may lead a Piscean man to hit his unhappy wife and then rush out to drown his own painful emotions in the nearest pub. Others have such a need for security that they become desperately mean and penny-pinching or they collect so much junk for a rainy day that they can hardly move around their homes.

Pisceans are idealistic and, in some cases, unrealistic. They can become very excited by an idea, and set off on a course of action without really thinking it through; but their superb intuition leads them safely and surely in the right direction. In both working circumstances and their personal life, Pisceans benefit by having a steady, practical partner who keeps them from going off ant a tangent or from falling into despair. Pisceans can become helpless, out-of-control and terribly depressed at times. However, these subjects have a piquant sense of humor which probably does more to save them from themselves than anything else. They also have amazing powers of recovery, and can bounce back from physical or emotional problems very quickly when they want to.

Pisceans are highly creative and often very artistic, with a strongly visual imagination. This ability to visualize, added to strongly intuitive capabilities, leads many Pisceans to encounter clairvoyant experiences, which means that many of them develop an interest in mystical and mediumistic subjects. Others can be found in all areas of creative or artistic work such as music, painting, film video recording, the creative side of the media, and fashion design. If a Piscean finds a job he really likes, or decides to go into business for himself, his stubborn determination to succeed will take his friends and relatives by surprise. These subjects also have the happy knack of making influential friends who can and do help them get where they want to be in life.

Pisceans are not easy to live with because, although they are very loving and very lovable, their moodiness makes them difficult to understand. These subjects respond to everything in a mystical and sensual manner, so if something in the atmosphere is not right, they will feel it keenly. The Piscean may be uneasy because a storm is on the way, because a neighbor or friend is sick or unhappy, because one of his children has been nasty to him, or because he senses changes coming in his place of work. He may not know what it is that is actually making him depressed, simply because the problem may not yet have occurred, and may only be apparent in the form of a presentiment. Pisceans can be made to suffer by bullies or unscrupulous people, but they do have some forms of defense. They can be surprisingly sarcastic; and can, of course, see straight through to other people's underlying faults and failings regardless of how carefully hidden these may be.

In many ways, these people never grow up but retain the innocence of a child or animal; and, indeed, many of them are happier in the company of children or animals than with adults. Pisceans can be surprisingly resourceful, and can also manage to live on surprisingly little. In the majority of cases, their values are spiritual rather than material, but they like to eat well and to live in comfort. Most of all, they value freedom and hate to feel that they cannot come and go as they like. Some feel uncomfortable when surrounded by the trappings of material goods, but most actually need a nice home and a nice garden, both as a form of security and as a place to which they can retreat. Many are good cooks and homemakers, and most are very loving parents, but this can go vaguely wrong for strange reasons.

This is such an indefinable sign that it encompasses such varied characters as Paddy Ashdown, the ex-Royal Marine Commando and leader of the U.K. Liberal Democrat party, top surgeons, head-teachers, and down-and-outs who live in cardboard boxes, underneath the arches of a railway line.

Pisceans are generally medium in height, and either slim or slightly rounded in appearance. Many of these subjects have to watch their weight later in life. In white races, the complexion is fair with a good color, the nose is quite prominent, the eyes are pale and prominent, and the mouth is generous with a large and happy smile. Some have fly-away hair which is hard to handle, while others have a good head of thick, straight hair. Most Pisceans seem to wear glasses, and many need to wear sun-glasses in the summer because their pale eyes let in too much light. Piscean women are often very photogenic due to their strong bones and large features. Pisceans are quite fussy about their appearance, and they may spend quite a lot on clothing. They prefer to buy good-quality clothes which will last; and they always spend a good deal on comfortable shoes. Some Pisceans go for the sporty look, with up market track suits and training shoes, while others are 'country casual' in style.

The traditional area of weakness for health is the feet; and Pisceans do have either very good or very bad feet. Pisceans seem to be 'creaking gates' who lurch from one strange ailment to another, but who still manage to live long and relatively healthy lives. Pisceans are very sensitive to changes both in the environment and inside their own bodies; and they respond to this by admitting that something is wrong rather than ignoring any symptoms. These subjects are very health-conscious, and may dose themselves with all kinds of alternative medicines or seek out treatment from a variety of alternative practitioners. Some Pisceans drink too much.

Pisceans work in a variety of fields and can be very successful if they are excited by their jobs. However, a great many of them only work because they must, and are content to take jobs which are well below their ability level. Pisceans are not particularly ambitious or materialistic in outlook, and they may save the bulk of their energies for their many and varied pastimes. Having said this, if a Piscean gets the bit between his teeth, he can be extremely successful. My Piscean friend Barbara Ellen recently opened a holistic health centre in Wales; and, through a mixture of faith and determination, is turning this unusual venture into a great success. Pisceans can be found working for themselves as craftsmen or as builders, gardeners and small farmers. Traditionally, Pisceans are supposed to be attracted to work on the sea, fishing, shoe-making and chiropody (through the sign's association with feet). I can't say that I have actually noticed Pisceans being attracted to these trades, whereas the world of art and entertainment is full of them. Other traditional areas are connected to the oil and gas industry and also film and photography. A number of Pisceans are attracted to medical or veterinary work, while still others teach. Pisceans love sports, dancing and movement, and may be found teaching these subjects. They are restless, and may therefore find work in the travel trade. Philosophy, religion and mysticism attract Pisceans, to a point where many of them find work in these fields. Among my Piscean acquaintances, I know a musician, a builder, a swimming instructor, a flying instructor, a lecturer in history, an executive in an oil and energy company who sells gas; many astrologers, palmists and clairvoyants, healers and medical workers; and one prostitute. Most of the people I have worked with in the psychic field (as opposed to the astrological field) have either their Sun or their Moon in Pisces.

Pisceans can be extremely determined people who will not be deflected from their chosen pathway. Their choice of occupation or road to success may be an unusual one, but this is followed with more tenacity than most other members of the Zodiac but together. If a Piscean decided to open a sheep farm in the middle of Piccadilly Circus, he would end up either achieving his aim or dying in the attempt.

Some Pisceans are penny-pinching, but these subjects are often as miserly to themselves as they are towards others. Other Pisceans will spend freely on food and drink for themselves and others, and happily forget all financial constraints if there is any chance of holding a party or festivity of some kind. Under everyday circumstances, Pisceans can be very frugal, saving paper bags, bits of string and slivers of soap for re-use. All Water signs are excellent recyclers, but Pisceans make an art of this. Many Pisceans are poor in a peculiarly romantic style. One example is Sarah, an acquaintance of mine who lives in a garret working as a china restorer, while another has turned her hobby of gardening into a livelihood. This type of Piscean will live for his art or craft rather than do an ordinary job which brings in real money. Despite this, Pisceans worry constantly about money, and could really do with a nice, fat legacy behind them. There is another kind of Piscean who actually does quite well financially but still lives on next-to-nothing and feels just as insecure as his genuinely impecunious cousins. There are yet more Pisceans who live quite normal lives. This is one of those signs which, like its neighboring sign of Aquarius, is hard to categorize.

Piscean possessions can range from an ocean-going yacht to a few eating utensils and a cat. Many Pisceans don't drive, and those who do usually own beloved old bangers from which they can't bear to be parted. Some Pisceans are very independent where money is concerned, and yet others may be (almost) generous.

Pisceans quite like their own company, and can live happily alone. However, they don't spend all their time in isolation because they usually have many friends. Most Pisceans seem to drift in and out of relationships, perhaps being married for a time, and then slipping away to live with someone else. These subjects may share their homes with friends for a while, or they may choose to live temporarily with a friend in between one set of circumstances and the next (a situation common to Pisceans). There are Pisceans who marry when young and stay with the same partner throughout their lives, but many don't. Pisceans appear soft and malleable, but they are actually rather determined people. They choose a way of life which suits them; and, whether this is practical or not in financial terms, they stick with their dreams, which means that their partners have to learn to adapt and to live with their special interests. This also means that the Piscean may not earn much money, so they are probably best suited to a partner who can keep them in a reasonable style. Most Pisceans are very proud of their skills and talents, and need a partner who acknowledges this and respects their particular art. If a Piscean's partner ridicules what the Piscean does, the relationship hasn't much chance of surviving. A Pisces friend of mine who is an excellent psychic medium was married for quite a few years to a guy who detested what she did. He eventually told her that she must give up her work and get a job in a shop if she wanted to stay with him; and this spelled the end of the relationship. Life is never dull with these subjects, because they seem to go through a fresh drama every third week. Some partners of Pisceans find this emotional see-saw too much to handle.

A Pisces home can be anything from a squat to a palace. Most Pisceans, after drifting for a while, do try to maintain a place of their own even if they are not always there. This is partly because they are not adaptable enough to live in someone else's space for any length of time, and partly because they see property as a form of security. Most Pisceans do keep their homes nicely; and their gardens are often really beautiful. These subjects are usually good cooks, and they may also be good at making and mending things around the home; but they get bored if they spend too much time indoors, and they have many outside interests. Most Pisceans need to get away to the sea from time to time.

Pisceans are very sociable, and are also keen on short breaks of all kinds, so they need a partner who is as restless as themselves or who doesn't object to them being out of the house a good deal of the time. Some Pisceans are great travelers who work away from home much of the time and only see their families on flying visits, when on leave or between jobs.

Pisces people can be moody and irritable, and occasionally self-pitying and angry, which can make them pretty difficult to live with. Female Pisceans can be draining, demanding and boring, while males can spend much of their time drowning some unexpressed sorrow in the nearest pub.

The thought of a party, a meal out or a holiday by the sea cheers them up immensely. These subjects can be mean in small ways, saving scraps of soap, little pieces of string and paper bags with all the enthusiasm of a refugee; but they can be generous in big ways, good to their friends and families, and always ready to spend out on food and drink. Some Pisceans are loyal and faithful lovers, while others seem to need a change of bed-partner from time to time. If a Piscean's partner decides to take his / her love elsewhere for a while, the Piscean will be aware of it almost immediately, but whether he decides that he can live with this situation or not depends upon his mood and his circumstances. It is no use lying to these people, because they have excellent intuition.

Some Pisceans are very fussy and old-womanish, demanding that everything be done in a certain way and infuriating their partners by creeping around the house double-checking that the doors are locked and that there is enough salt in the cooking. Most Pisceans are very capable in an emergency. Their calmness at such times makes a stark contrast to their usual state of near-panic. These subjects make wonderful nurses, but they become bored if a sick partner complains too much. Pisces partners cannot take too much discord, and they don't enjoy a good row in the way that some other people do. When verbally attacked, they can be surprisingly hurtful because their intuition tells them exactly where their partner's weakest spot is likely to be. Pisceans seem to go out of their way to find difficult people to live with, but they survive these experiences, learning a lot from them and becoming independent and strongly-centered later in life. Pisceans who are devoted to their partners will do all they can to help when problems occur, and can be quite dazzlingly courageous in the face of fierce difficulties. The problem with these people is their unpredictability and their claustrophobic need to escape even from a very good relationship from time to time.

Pisceans are heavily into fantasy, but whether they live these fantasies out in their mind or act them out in the bedroom depends upon the individual. Some Pisceans are happy to live with little or no sex, saving their energy and their imagination for work or creative hobbies, while others are very keen lovers who take every opportunity to experiment. Many fluctuate between periods of intense sexual activity and nothing at all, depending upon their mood and their circumstances. If they find themselves with a co-operative partner, there may be no holds barred. Some Pisceans enjoy making love in strange places; while others like to be in, near or under water. Most find the bathroom an exciting playground. There are Pisceans who enjoy dressing up and acting out a part; and many like to shock their partners or encourage them to be more abandoned than they might otherwise be. Pisceans are quite comfortable with sex in any form, from playing affectionately to reaching for new heights of passion, and they love to instruct or entertain a lover with new love-making experiences. Many Pisceans are total romantics who love Valentine's day, red roses and candle-lit dinners, and consider this as much a part of love-making as the sex act itself.

Pisceans are rather good at relating to friends and relatives, and will keep on good terms with their families and even ex-spouses, wherever possible. These subjects are good listeners and great gossips who can be relied upon to keep their friends and relatives entertained. Pisceans love both feeding people and being taken out for trips and meals; and they enjoy sharing their interests with those around them. They can be quite unpleasant to anyone who sets out to hurt them, but they will do anything to help someone they care for.

As parents, Pisceans can be rather lax and absent-minded. The children of a Piscean woman may spend a good part of their lives being brought up by someone else, whilst Piscean men may drift away from their children as a result of a divorce. When all goes well, they are very caring parents; but they must have a life of their own, and cannot sacrifice all their time and energy for the sake of their offspring. Pisces parents try to introduce their children to the gentler aspects of life, such as art, music and 'New Age' interests; and they hate arguments and discord.

As children, Pisceans can be dreamy and somewhat ineffectual, needing a strongly caring set of parents to shield them from harsh reality. They may be good at artistic subjects and, oddly enough, mathematics and engineering, because they have a good sense of color, line and balance. These children are not competitive or ambitious, and they may suffer at the hands of bullying children or teachers. It takes a Piscean a long time to find himself; and childhood is far too early for him to begin to mould his life into any kind of shape. Nevertheless, the Pisces child may get a lot out of his interests and activities, and will make a few good friends among the more adult and tolerant of his schoolfellows along the way.

Sun in Pisces: The symbol of Pisces - two fishes swimming in opposite directions - suggests the main tension in Piscean character: a natural perversity. Kindness joins with keen intuition to make Pisceans the best sort of friends. They are friendly, charitable and self-sacrificing, but their willingness to help others has a drawback in that they too often make it an excuse for failing to exploit their own high potential; they are so busy using their energy on behalf of their family and friends that they have little left for their own affairs.

It is often very difficult for Pisceans to learn to face reality; stronger, caring people should encourage them to do so at every opportunity. The belief that 'whatever will be, will be' can become a veritable trap for them, in the worst cases resulting in complete inaction. Taking the line of least resistance, and deceiving themselves because they don't want to face up to harsh reality, are major faults.

The colorful Piscean imagination, creatively and positively expressed, is an enormous asset, but Pisceans must learn not to allow their imaginations to work negatively, magnifying small problems into major ones. The negative Piscean characteristics will then take over. If they channel their imaginations creatively, finding a specific outlet for them (perhaps in some form of art or craft), they can achieve results which will surprise themselves. Traditionally, Pisces is known as the poet of the zodiac, but take this in the broadest sense - it applies to the creative use of the imagination in any area of life.

The refusal to face reality can emerge in an inability to see things as they really are. This kind of self-deception can be a really dangerous fault, persuading Pisceans to lie because (they tell themselves) the truth will hurt those they love. On the contrary, of course, they are usually only making matters worse. Sun sign Pisceans should strive to develop minds of their own, thus avoiding evasion and indecision whenever major decisions must be made. The position of Mercury (which rules the mind) in the complete birth chart must be carefully studied.

Piscean emotion is readily poured into an emotional partnership, and loved ones may be overwhelmed with affection. Provided their emotions are kept under control, Pisceans can bring something very special to a partnership; but their feelings are always close to the surface, and surprisingly trivial matters can sometimes trigger a scene. Romantic and sentimental, when they fall in love Pisceans wear permanent rose-colored glasses; they will only dispense with them as the result of bitter experience, when the partner's faults are ruthlessly exposed. A clear view of reality, however, usually enables them to build the relationship on firmer foundations. Not overly passionate, their romantic view of sex can be tenderly and handsomely expressed.

It is vital that the parents of a Piscean child train him or her to be honest and straightforward. This may not be easy, but the tendency to embroider the truth with plenty of imaginative color can mean the less desirable Piscean traits do serious damage. Any interest which fires the imagination positively should be encouraged and praised from an early age. This may also be difficult - Pisceans always know someone who can do things better than them. It is no use denying this; but point out that some children will do things less well. Their confidence must be bolstered at all times, and their powers of concentration must also be sharpened if dreaminess is not to hinder progress. Any scientific flair should certainly be encouraged; science is potentially a good field for them to work in, provided other areas of the chart show that the necessary meticulous concern for detail can be added to their own imagination and inspiration.

Piscean parents are eager to encourage their children, but they can be too easy-going with them; parental vagueness can be even more infuriating to a child than over strictness. They put their children first, wanting them to develop their potential to the fullest.

Ideally, a Piscean's career should bring out the talent for caring which is one of the sign's strongest attributes, so they are admirably suited to work in the caring professions. They are not very good at organization, and usually work selflessly in the background; yet they are often excellent and successful actors. This is because, on stage, they can conceal their own personalities behind those of their characters.

Sun in Pisces and Moon in Aries: The combination of your Sun sign and your Moon sign produces an inner nature that differs greatly from the outer or projected personality. Its hard to strike a balance between a sense of inward peace, and reactions that are quite impulsive, active and even aggressive. There is a blending of emotional sensitivity, adaptability and understanding that is Pisces, with the high spirit and independence of Aries. With this there is generally a strong urge for personal advancement, fame or at least recognition, but you may need greater confidence and inward incentive to realize these desires. You may possess considerable ability for personal expression if you can just make the decision to go after it. Your strength lies in your natural love of knowledge and your urge to always be well-informed. You are also very self-reliant; showing keen mental ability, the ability to think for yourself. Its important for you to avoid extremes in your life, understanding the value of moderation and self-control. You should not neglect your need to find a peaceful world and a calm approach to problems, despite natural tendencies to overdo and be rather hard-driving. In many ways you seem to be very assertive, competitive and determined, but in actual fact, you are not really as positive and sure of yourself as you appear. In some ways there is a good bit of bluff in your personality. You put a lot of romance and feeling into everything you do, expressing much enthusiasm with a most purposeful approach to life. Yours is an unusual combination in that it possesses a rare capacity for depth of feeling, imagination and vision, while it also features so much personal assertiveness and and a powerful demand for independence.

Sun in Pisces and Moon in Taurus: The combination of your Sun sign and your Moon sign produces a personality that is highly sociable, and one that clearly possesses a good bit of social tact. You’re a sensitive person, but you likewise have an acute sense of the other person’s feelings and sensitivities, and you therefore are a very agreeable person that avoids hurting anyone–that is until you’re opposed–and then you can get very stubborn. In other words, you are easy to get along with; you don’t impose on people, but you definitely won’t allow yourself to be imposed on either. You feel that debts have to be kept even, and even in a social sense, you don’t like to feel that you owe anyone. This may be because you are a little bit unsure of yourself, and want to make sure you say and do the right thing. This combination blends the Pisces understanding, sensitivity, and a sense of adaptability, with the practicality and determination of Taurus. The two signs blend well, and are mutually strengthening to one another. This pairing allows coexistence of an easy-going nature, yet one possessing a stability and tenacity of will not often found in the Pisces native. You have a staying power and a control over impulsiveness that allows you to take things in stride, and you seem to have a simple and efficient way of getting things done. Nonetheless, there is apt to be considerable sensitivity in your nature, and surely a great deal of feeling for things and people. This is a combination that very often produces talent in an artistic or musical sense. Both signs are creatively imaginative and suited for a career in the arts. The social attitude of this pairing provides a deep consideration of others that is very beneficial to success in a wide range of endeavors, business and professional.

Sun in Pisces and Moon in Gemini: The combination of your Sun sign and your Moon sign produces a personality with a gift for duality. The Pisces symbol features the fish swimming in opposite directions, while the twins of Gemini are looking in two different directions. Both symbolize the variable nature of this pairing, the tendency to go off in different directions, or face real mental binds and problems. You may feel one way, while logic tells you to go another way. Unfortunately, you don’t really possess the sort of logic that is normally associated with Gemini; the Pisces side of your nature will see to that. Variable, adaptable, changeable, and always a bit indecisive, you have the ability to play the chameleon. Strangely, this personality can alternate between the expression of flexibility and stubbornness, both badly timed. You will yield when you should be firm and hold your ground when discretion would be wiser than valor. One moment you will be sure that you want to follow a certain course of action; the next moment you’ll change your mind even though you may have already committed yourself to the first plan. What must be learned is that you should not talk until your mind is made up. You truly hate to hurt people and you will do everything you can to avoid doing this. For all of this, you invariable do end up disappointing some. You are loved and respected as a leader by those that work for you; but you are not nearly so likely to be appreciated and respected by your superiors because you are changeable and you’re stubborn when opposed. It is a good thing that you adapt very quickly to changing circumstances, for you seem to be the type of individual that is constantly facing difficult situations with which you must deal. The strength of this combination is the blend of emotional sensitivity and intuitive understanding (Pisces), and flexibility and intellectuality (Gemini). Keen mental powers and alert senses stimulate urges to always continue the process of learning.

Sun in Pisces and Moon in Cancer: The combination of your Sun and Moon signs produces a personality that is deep in feelings and very complex. You are sensitive and alert to the opinions and the feelings of the world around you, and with sort of a sixth sense, you can give the public what it wants almost before it knows that it wants it. Whatever you decide to do, you go about it with the greatest seriousness and intensity. You tackle any job with vigor, discipline, and drive. Your personality is very controlled and self-assured. The forcefulness in your nature was put there by self-discipline, as you were originally a rather shy person who had to make yourself get out into the public eye. You know how to handle people and win them over to your way of thinking because you understand them so well. You know when to concede and when to stand your ground. When your instincts don’t put you on guard, you make friends very quickly and easily because people can sense your sincerity. Your insights to people let you relax with those you know are genuine and real. While you really have a very kindly and adaptable nature, it may not seem so because you are so emphatic and dramatic in your every gesture, motion, and word. You have an extremely high regard for your own self-worth so that nothing can ever make you loose faith in yourself. Moods play an important role in your daily affairs and you can reflect some rather broad swings. You gain much from your ability to know when to do what.

Sun in Pisces and Moon in Leo: The combination of your Sun sign and your Moon sign produces a personality that seems to be on a perpetual see-saw. You go up when you would prefer to go down and vise versa. You’ll give in to the wishes of others, without really knowing why. It’s difficult to predict how you will react to anything, because you always seem to be asking yourself if you should do what you want or what everyone else wants you to do. Most of the time you do what others want you to do, whether or not you are in agreement. Your personality blends the emotional sensitivity and feelings of Pisces with the warmth and aggressiveness of Leo. Your personality blends the emotional sensitivity and feelings of Pisces with the warmth and assertiveness of Leo. You’re likely to be more positive and forceful than people perceive you, making you seem somewhat variable or contradictory. On the surface you may seem to be a pillar of strength, but you are easily swayed. Personal relationships are extremely important to you. You are not necessarily a clinger, but you do depend on others for your happiness and good spirits. Depression comes easily to you. You can be happy one moment, and the next you can be tired, sad, and blue. You respond best to people when you are confident of your status, and you have a hard time maintaining your spirit when you are surrounded with people that you consider your superiors. The moment you are bested is the moment you turn sour; pressure, tension and competition are hard for you to handle. For this reason, you are best when you choose a position providing some authority wherein you can present your positive and aggressive personality more or less freely, gaining from your talent of being popular and well liked. Your strong point is your amiable and lovable personality. You’re not really a competitor, but no one can challenge you in the field of being likable.

Sun in Pisces and Moon in Sagittarius: The combination of your Sun sign and Moon sign produces a personality that is never content with earthy, materialistic, or mundane goals. Your stride is long, smoothly sweeping, and unwilling to settle for less than the best. You are willing to try anything possible to achieve your goals. The influence of these signs is most idealistic and high-minded. Your vision of acceptable is to most, the impossible dream. A certain spiritual quality attaches to everything you do. Unfortunately, it’s hard to live comfortably on such a high plane of existence. The “sage” aspect of Sagittarius combines effectively with the Pisces fluid expression of mind, spirit and emotions producing wisdom that is freely expressed with great feeling. This is not to say that you are always practical and constructive. Too much of the time your ideas are vague, hypothetical, and intangible. In many ways you are the impractical visionary, thinking in broad, general terms rather than dealing with specifics and details. You are a highly expansive person and may try to spread your energies far too thin. Definitely, you are not a materialist, perfectly satisfied so long as the world gives you a living to go on with your important work. You are an idealist through and through and have some of the naivete that attaches to idealism, in spite of your intuitive wisdom.

Sun in Pisces and Moon in Capricorn: The combination of your Sun sign and your Moon sign produces a pleasant, sweet-tempered outlook most of the time. There is a blending of emotional sensitivity and intuitive perception of Pisces, with the conservatism, deep ambition and prudence of Capricorn.

You want to get somewhere in life, but without appearing pushy or too determined. Subtlety is your style and method.

Sun in Pisces and Moon in Pisces: The combination of your Pisces Sun and Moon signs produces a dualistic personality and one that is quite difficult for the world to easily understand. You are highly introspective, almost to the extent that the outer world around you seems odd and full of what you perceive as weird notions. A tendency to withdraw, makes you strangely inaccessible at times. Yet you have a very warm and likable quality when you allow yourself to open up to others and let these traits show. You have an enormous faith in your intuition and your self-sufficiency, but at the same time, you value close relationships and social activity. For the most part the double Pisces is amenable, acutely interested in others, and a trustworthy friend.

Mentally you are quick, perceptive, intuitive, with an almost mystic belief in your hunches. Insight and creativity is your great strength. You have an uncanny way of seeing the core and substance of things, making you both motivational and a universal-thinker. Artisitic performance is often your forte.

Sun in Pisces Woman: People can tell how sensitive you am as soon as they meet you. It’s your trademark. Your feelings are so acute that you're like a highly sensitized photographic plate, which registers all it is exposed to. Whatever vibrations are there, you pick them up. You flow into things, and you can flow right into other people and their situations. You overflow with empathy and compassion. Like a fish in the ocean, You ride the currents of life and with your emotions you touch all the ills and sorrows of the world around you. Your pain becomes your pain. This isn’t easy to live with, and you have to practice discrimination constantly or you never know the difference between what’s coming in to you and what is your own. That’s why you often overreact. When you get confused, which is often, you’ll make any excuse to get by. Your spirit guides said it was okay. The devil made you do it. You were just following orders.

Life’s harshness really grates against your super-sensitivity, and you am almost always seeking relief through creative and imaginative efforts. Nature soothes you and you love the sea. It feeds your spiritual needs. You have healing abilities, but when you're not using your sensitivity positively you can turn to drugs and alcohol for comfort and get into a do-nothing state. You can get addicted to almost anything to flee from the horrible pain of existence. Responsibility scares you, and you evaporate to escape it.

In romance, you're an idealist. Your suggestibility makes you easily erotic, and you like to use your imagination in love. Men who can inspire you are the greatest attraction. You need people you can believe in, who support your visions. When your insecurities take charge, you go for a man who will take over and mesmerize you. You have to be careful of addictive relationships. You like being understanding, and you like soothing people with your presence. It gives you focus, but you can get hooked on men with problems who need your help.

Sun in Pisces Woman: This woman appreciates kindness and consideration above almost anything else: you can win her by being sympathetic. However, once you do, she is apt to be possessive, and has a tendency to 'take over'. In a way, this could be pleasant: Pisces women are lovely, poetic, emotional, giving, generous; to have a woman such as this wanting you all to herself is not hard to take. On the other hand, if you are basically independent you will soon resent her. This brings us to the all-important hint: when dealing with Pisces women, be frank, open and honest to the point of confiding your secrets. This appeals to her and gains her confidence. Once this is established, she is not likely to hold so tight to the reins. The secret hint, in other words, is to give the Pisces lady confidence in herself. She has a tendency toward self-doubt, often expressed in her possessive attitude.

If you want to be happy with a Pisces woman, don't hold back. No matter how terrible the truth, it is better to tell it. This lady is a fighter as well as a poet: she has a few secrets of her own; some contacts or ideas which, if utilized, might well pull you out of difficulties. She is not an easy woman to understand; she often changes with the scenery, with the situation - as if nature had given her a strange power to face any situation, no matter how pleasant or awful.

You will want to shield her, protect her; but time and again she will prove that she is tough, able to take it. Then, in almost the next moment, she once more will become the gentle, leaning dependent Piscean. One of her great assets is a sense of humor: she will laugh when you most need to hear the sound of laughter. Give her confidence, warmth and love - and you will be amply repaid.

These women are extraordinary when it comes to psychic power: they can see through a falsehood; they can tell what the next move will bring; they can read your motives with crystal clarity. In a way, living with a Pisces woman is similar to living with a lie detector. It is a wonderful feeling of vindication - when the indicator point to 'truth' - but the feeling of depression is severe when the needle points the other way.

One more hint: despite her hunches, her psychic abilities, and her sympathy for the underdog, this woman has plenty of common sense. Don't attempt to play upon her weaknesses.

Sun in Pisces Man: One of the best hints is to go slow with this man. Don't push or force issues. Be subtle. Plan carefully. Ingratiate yourself with him; make yourself a part of his life and work. He will soon ask your opinions; he will confide in you. He is a sensitive soul if you take it easy. If you push, force, demand, he will stand up to you and show you the door. He is not the easiest man to be with, but he may well be one of the kindest and most considerate.

Gentle methods can capture this man's heart; he does have a tendency to be self-indulgent, and forceful arguments can send him into a protective shell, where he will be quite satisfied to commiserate with himself. If you abhor daydreaming, then find another man. The Pisces male is imaginative; often highly creative; and he is a dreamer if ever there was one.

He is emotional, Neptunian, and at times mediumistic in that he appears to be inspired out of the blue. He has flashes of insight; and these first impressions not only are often correct but ultimately prove profitable! This man is never completely contented. It is important for you to be aware of this trait. Otherwise, the tendency would be for you to blame yourself, or to blame him. The characteristic is ingrained; it is part of the man - it is a healthy discontent. On the highest or most creative plain, it could be termed 'divine discontent'. He is not satisfied to rest on past performance; he strives for improvement. Often he appears abstract: you are tempted to complain that there are problems to be attended to close at home - this instead of dreaming of a Utopia. But you have been forewarned: the Pisces man is a dreamer, but he is not a schemer.

When he decides he loves you, it is with all his heart.

This man's greatest fault, perhaps, is a tendency to be too trusting: he sees persons and situations the way he wishes or would like them to be instead of in actuality. This is part of his charm, however. It is one of the things that could make you love him.

He is wonderfully considerate of those who are weak or ill, or who need help. He will seldom disappoint you when it comes to qualities of integrity or sympathy.

Sun in Pisces Man: For a man, you're probably one of the most sensitive people one will ever meet. Why? Because you absorb everything around you. Like a sponge, You soak up the entire environment. You take thoughts, feelings, and atmospheres into yourself almost by osmosis. That may sound strange, but it’s true. You can actually get inside people and situations, and this particular ability gives you great compassion. Because you become the other, you have empathy way beyond most people’s. You are never immune. Sometimes, you admit. you're thrown by your sponge like quality. It gets to be too much for you. It’s like mind-reading, only sometimes you can’t tell the difference between what’s in your own mind and what you're picking up from others. That can be a liability! You can really get confused. You have to work at distinguishing between what is yours and what isn't. And since it's hard for you to avoid the negativity in the air, you like to escape when you can, which is almost all the time. You take flights of fancy in your imagination, work creatively, or immerse yourself in spirituality. Drugs and alcohol help you do this, and you use them freely.

Maybe that’s why you're sweet, gentle, kind, loving, and affectionate. You can soothe people with your presence. You're very suggestible - another person only has to think of something they want and you respond. You also use the power of suggestion and weave powerful illusions, like a magician.

Some say you're not of this earth, and true, you like dealing with anything that involves vision, where seeing beyond the obvious is required. You like inspiring others. Life isn’t simple and things aren’t always what they seem, but you believe in miracles and magic of all kinds.

Your ideal woman understands and accepts your visionary nature and where it leads you. She is a romantic with a good head on her shoulders and a dream in her heart. She’s more practical than you are (which isn’t hard to accomplish!), and when you find her and your life’s work, there’s no one stronger than you are.
