Understanding Pisces the Fish
by Dr. Victoria Scerbo
The last sign of the zodiac, Pisces, the sign of the Fishes. Like all the water sign before, Pisces is a mysterious sign. Whereas Cancer had its tides of emotion and Scorpio its depths of emotion, Pisces has a vastness of emotion. There isn’t a feeling that Pisces doesn’t feel, and it comes through Pisces like a stream of consciousness, with no beginning and no end.
Pisces is connected to the Great Cosmic Sea, from which all things rise and to where all things return.
This makes them quite dreamy, as if they have one foot in this world and one foot in the next. This dreamy quality can be misconstrued as evasiveness. It is often difficult for Pisces to take a stand on anything. In fact to some, they seem quite unable to make a decision of any kind. The reason they have trouble with decisions is the absolute nature of decisions. It is either this or that, yet Pisceans see everything as one, so decisions for a Pisces are rather silly and seemingly arbitrary.
This can work in a Pisces’ favor, say if they are a poet, or an artist, as they see the world like no one else.
Yet when trying to manage their lives on Planet Earth, it can be quite difficult. Pisces are extraordinarily empathetic and can take on the feelings of everyone around them. They don’t do well in harsh environments, and harsh is a relative term because of their inability to know where they end and another begins. So a harsh word to someone else can drive them to despondency.
Pisces is often associated with drug and alcohol abuse. They use it mostly to escape the pain of being incarnate. To a Pisces who is not aware of their empathetic nature, life can be one huge ball of pain, emotional, mental, or physical. They are often labeled hypochondriacs. Which is not really true. Often they are just trying to figure out why they feel the way they do.
Of all the signs, Pisces is the most tenderhearted. We must keep this in mind when we are interacting with them. Quite often you will find the neighborhood ‘cat lady’ or the man who feeds all the stray dogs are Pisces, as their empathetic nature does not stop at humans.
If we can keep in mind just how gentle this sign is, and have empathy for their empathy, then having a Pisces in your life can be magical. Their imagination is unparalleled and as long as they keep it on a positive note they will create a lot of beauty in the lives of everyone they touch.
Kindness matters with Pisces as it should will all the signs. Pisces is understanding and compassionate, something we can all use. Love your Pisces, don‘t bother pinning them down, leave your sour mood at the door and life with Pisces can be the most amazing fulfilling and spiritually illuminating experience.
