Portrait of a Pisces
Pisces types are known for their creativity, their wisdom, and their empathy. It can be tricky to tell if one has a crush on you. Sometimes their emotions bubble over and make it very clear that they like you, and sometimes they repress their feelings so they don't get hurt.
Those with a Pisces Sun sign are kind, mysterious, otherworldly, and brilliant. They're ruled by the water element, they're the last sign of the zodiac, and they represent the end of winter. Pisces types are born from February 19th to March 20th.
Pisces is about love, harmony, and going with the flow. They want to be friendly. They're self-sacrificing. They're naturally compassionate. They understand the connection between themselves and other people. This is one of the most generous signs.
Their biggest fear is that they're too otherworldly and people will misunderstand them. They're afraid they're not meant for this world and don't belong here because they're so nice and creative. They fear they'll be pushed out to sea and into the edge of oblivion. Because of they're unique talents, they sometimes struggle with knowing where and how to belong — and this dissonance with the world can trip them up when it comes to romance.
Highly Perceptive People
Pisces types get why people have extremes. They understand terribleness and wonderfulness. This sign is gifted because they're the last sign, and they have witnessed all 11 of the other signs. They can tap into other people's energy and mimic them.
Needs Extra Safeguards
They can deny their ego so that people receive what they want. Pisces has to be careful that they put themselves into relationships with people who are loving, understanding, and respectful.
- Pisces types are very accepting of people's flaws and faults, so they can get themselves into situations where people take advantage of them.
- Pisces is notorious for taking on partners that they think they can fix or will eventually change for the better.
- Pisces can get deeply hurt and disillusioned from toxic relationships. Following a breakup, they will likely hide to heal.
