Pisces Personality

Pisces is unique among the signs of the Zodiac. Where most of us have several identifiable attributes, those born under Pisces are actually a combination of all of them. Able to identify with anyone, their compassion leads the way.

As a child, you excel at knowing what others expect of you. Playing with one group of friends, you intuit what they seek and fill the gap.

You are acknowledged and admired. With a different set of friends, however, a new you emerges. This works just fine until others ask you to “define yourself.” Upset that you should pursue only one of your personalities, you learn to blend and withdraw with skill.

As you are always open to the influence of others, you need regularly scheduled alone time. This is when you recharge your batteries, and you begin to understand your own true nature. As a child, you should have your own room. It is also preferable for you to take baths instead of showers. This allows you to steep in the still waters, which can facilitate and calm your emotions.

You are almost always talented in either music or art. Able to easily dance with the Muses, you can channel their impulses in the most creative ways. You enjoy soft music and gentle colors. Nature truly soothes you. 

Many believe that there are really two different kinds of Pisces. The take-charge ones dream big, pursue their goals, and attain much success. There are actually quite a few Pisces CEOs. They have the ability to relate to and understand all of their employees and are adept at meeting their needs. 

Some Pisces, though, are overwhelmed by their environment. These souls should learn that they are actually in charge. By changing some of the externals in their lives, they can also shine.

Just remember that you are brimming with potential. Actions will activate it.
