Pisces, the sign that is
As the twelfth and last sign of the Zodiac, Pisces represents Dreams.
For Pisces, Imagination is the keyword, value for Human Relationships, their quality and Generosity is their identity. The word Pisces is a Latin translation of the Greek name, which means ‘the fish(es)’. Two fish swimming in opposite directions is the symbol of Pisces, which represents flexibility. Neptune and Jupiter are their key planets. Neptune is the God of the Seas, which depicts dissolution of reality, that is, the spiritual and mystical aspects, while Jupiter indicates thinking and learning. Water is their element, which points to deep emotions.
Pisces is sensitive, kind, gentle, emotional and selfless. They are also imaginative, artistic and creative, and have great versatility in them. But they can also be escapists and temperamental.
A woman born in the zodiac sign of Pisces is a dreamy character, who has an element of mystery surrounding her. Pisces women love to dream and it does remain a part and parcel of their living. They are imaginative, often dwelling in their comfort zone made up of their own thoughts, beliefs and hopes. She is soft and delicate, and is generally endowed with an appealing beauty, striking charm and a feminine grace. But her gentle heart remains a storehouse of many desires and various dreams. Pieces women signify the subconscious mind and are thus somewhat mystical by nature. They can comprehend abstract ideas, and can have a refreshingly new insight into the human nature and also on the world around. Dreaming is not an idle distraction for them, but is a graphic, and often, a realistic exercise. Whether others understand them or not, their dreams make deep sense to them and remain a definite means of purposeful creativity. Fired by the power of this rare faculty, the gentle Pisces can grow in stature and scale immense heights in their pursuits. There cannot be imagination and dream without sensitivity, and strong sensitivity does remain yet another important part of their character. Their sensitivity is closely linked to their emotions, which run deep and reflect on their delicate feelings. They are artists at heart, who bring their immense sensitivity into their artistic pursuits. This artistic temper combines well with their creative mind, turning many of them into performing artists or writers. While they are rational in their thinking, it is their intuition which holds a major say in many of their conclusions and decisions. Here, their vivid imagination takes the form of strong intuition, which they bring into play for forming opinions, choosing options and making decisions. On one side, they are romantic and can even be sensual, while on the other, they are spiritual.
Pisces women are good at heart, who hold immense value for relationships. They are humane to the core, who are kind, gentle and affectionate. They are soft and mild mannered, and will treat others as they themselves would like to be treated – with honour and respect. Their sensitivity also manifests as compassion, as they not only sympathize but will also genuinely empathize with others. They will ever be ready to extend a helping hand to anyone in need, even going out of the way. They are definitely gentle, but are not weak, and their inner strength and fighting spirit will come to the fore, when they are pushed to a corner.
However, the Pisces women live in the world of their own dreams, and can be impractical and removed from ground realities. This makes them indecisive. Unable to face reality or come to terms with it, they try to escape, avoiding issues and running away from problems. Their extreme sensitivity can make them feel neglected or very hurt even over normal behaviour and non-issues. While these may contribute to self-pity and low self-esteem, they can also evoke sharp and sarcastic reactions from them. They need love and protection in large measures, and if they feel denied of these, they may withdraw into a shell.
A Pisces woman will be as loving and affectionate as she is charming. She will be trusting her partner to the core and yielding to him completely, and will provide him with great physical and psychological companionship. She can make relationships and family life, sweet and colourful, without compromising on their quality.
But she is so touchy that she may get hurt very easily and become forlorn and gloomy. Her impractical dreams and temperamental instability can strain family relationships.
If they can temper their imagination with realism, and sensitivity with practicality, and convert their dreams into creative pursuits, the Pisces women can blossom into noble and loveable personalities, whose very presence will become a matter to be cherished.
