I can tell you pretty confidently that Pisces are a pretty tough group to read!
You have to admit, you either have no idea what’s going on in your Pisces-friend’s head, or you are the Pisces who constantly feels misunderstood!
1. Pisces is the 12th sign of the zodiac
Because Pisceans are the last sign of the zodiac, they have a mix trait of characteristics from all the 11 preceding signs. Pisces are in a somewhat constant battle deciding how they feel, and this can make it really challenging for a non-Pisceans to figure out exactly what they’re feeling/thinking.
2. Pisces are always seeking new experiences
Pisces are constantly looking for new things, but don’t let this offend you; they are most happy when they have someone along side them, experiencing these new things as well.
A Pisces would most successfully be in a relationship with someone who is just as stir crazy and up for anything.
If a Pisces feels trapped, he or she will most likely revert to his or her impulsive side and jump at the first opportunity for change.
3. Empathy is a driving force
Pisces are extremely empathetic. They tend to vibe off people very easily and they’ll be the first person you’ll want to call when you have a broken heart or a problem at work.
Mixed in with their over-thinking, this can sometimes be chaotic because they often place another’s emotions before their own, leaving themselves overwhelmed.
4. They have trouble distinguishing reality from fantasy
Pisces are, at heart, dreamers. Jupiter and Neptune, the latter of which represents illusions, rule them.
Pisces shift from goal to goal and sometimes, those goals may seem impossible. To a Pisces though, the goals are as close to reality as it gets. Silly fishes.
5. Their energy level depends on their environment
They are introspective, but are often the life of the party – it’s all about whether or not they vibe with the people around them. Because they’re also so sensitive, they can get annoyed easily, causing them to withdraw into themselves.
This can cause a lot of confusion for Pisces as they need human connections to be happy and they have an abundance of compassion even for strangers, but are also so selective with the company that they chose to surround themselves with.
6. You’ll be surprised to see how quiet they can get after seeing them be the life of the party
That’s the introverted side of Pisces. If they see you after a long day, they might be all irritable and not want to talk. It has nothing to do with you. Pisceans often need to recharge after a large use of social energy. After a long day of dealing with people, their social batteries are drained and they need to unwind and recover – usually alone.
7. They accept literally everyone
This has gotten me, personally, in a bit of trouble. A Pisces assumes the best in all people. In fact, it was probably a Pisces who coined, “innocent until proven guilty.”
A Pisces-hosted party is an interesting sight — people of all walks of life are welcome, as far as a Pisces is concerned.
8. It can take a while for them to let you in.
They need time to warm up, so, like, chill. Their contradictary traits can make times quite lonely for Pisces because they connect with people easily and people feel very connected to them, but it’s also at their core to isolate themselves.
It can take years for Pisces to let people in deeply, because once they do, they are eternally loyal and caring.
