Pisces, as we all know, is the sensitive, dreamy sign. People born while the sun was in Pisces are peaceful, friendly and idealistic. They tend to be the least physically active of all the Zodiac signs, but, of course, their rising and moon sign will have influence over their chosen lifestyle, so it would be wrong to say ‘all Pisceans are couch potatoes.’ However, like water flows, they often follow a path of least resistance. Especially in matters of love and relationships.
Aquarius-Pisces Cusp February 16-22
Like certain confectionery those born on the cusp are crunchy and tough on the outside but soft and sensitive on the inside. The combination of Aries and Pisces makes for an interesting chemistry. By the time they reach adulthood, people born during this week are likely to have built up a series of defenses to protect their vulnerable inner child. So it’s hard for them to open up when it comes to intimate relationships. Yet, if they are able to do so will enable them to navigate a personal journey of self-discovery.
Aquarius-Pisces cuspers must prepare themselves to endure emotional pain. It’s inevitable for all of us at some point. Yet it’s particularly painful for people in this group. Their sensitivity means they take everything to heart and find it hard to bounce back. The key is to train themselves set the fear of rejection aside and to understand that it’s not always a slight on their character, but just the way love goes sometimes. It’s a learning process, so don’t give up on love. Take a risk and it will help you long-term. What you must avoid is allowing jealousy and possessiveness to take a hold. That won’t do anyone any good.
One thing that Aquarius-Pisces people can depend on and that is their close network of friends. Friends will get them through anything. And seeing their friends’ romantic trials and tribulations can provide reassurance for the cuspers. Eventually the right person shows up and Aquarius-Pisces can immerse themselves in all the positive aspects of family life and a secure long-term relationship.
Pisces 1 February 23 – March 2
A heady combination of the spiritual and the sensual is present in people born in this week. In fact, they view spirituality and intimacy as the same thing. When they are in love, they are closer to their source. And they are surely correct. They apply these qualities to almost everything they do, from their work to the way they dress and decorate their homes. A sense of fun seems to permeate everything around them.
Like most Pisces, they are sensitive and have trouble hiding their feelings, whether it is a personal hurt or a natural disaster. They feel negativity deeply and painfully. From friends, as well as lovers, they expect the highest standards of integrity and loyalty. The problem with this is that most people are not saints and, when they falter, Pisces 1 takes it personally. This can lead to an endless cycle of falling in love and abruptly falling out again.
If Pisces 1 can recognize that they have overly stringent ideals and expectations, they will find happiness. Letting go and releasing the need for controlling their lovers is incredibly freeing. The study and practice of mindfulness will assist them enormously.
Pisces 2 March 3-10
Pisces 2s like their privacy and their peace. They cannot bear shallowness and superficiality, which often results in them becoming loners, although they are rarely lonely. Immersing themselves in music, literature and other cerebral interests. They have a bit of a masochistic streak and believe life is to be endured rather than enjoyed. One problem area for them is the possibility of addiction to alcohol or other stimulants.
If they are to fall in love, they need a partner who accepts them just as they are. And also one who can appreciate beauty and accomplishment in the same way. They consider intimacy to be part of the beauty of love and approach it with a certain grace and respect. Personal interaction is very important to them; if it’s not present, they will retreat into the safe place of solitude.
Pisces 2’s attraction to beauty may be their undoing. Considering their dislike of superficiality, they are drawn to it like moths. They have a tendency to judge the book by its cover and then wonder where it all went wrong when the object of their desire took their beauty and walked away. Pisces 2 must come to terms with the fact they can be just as addicted to unsuitable lovers as anything else that gives them temporary solace. This is the time they need their friends to help them be grounded.
Pisces 3 March 11-18
Pisces 3 people are the visionaries of the world. They may spend their entire lives wrapped up in deep philosophical thoughts and questions. Having said that, they are also the most practical of the Pisces sign. They are idealists and love to problem-solve, especially to help others. They must be careful not to allow their help to become an imposition. You know where the road of good intentions leads.
Pisces 3 is an unusual character and their quirky qualities will either attract or repel other people. They display their eccentricity in where they choose to live, and what and who they surround themselves with. One of their tendencies is to manipulate others, often very kindly, into dependency because Pisces 3 needs to be needed. Thus, having a family is their ultimate dream come true. They will assume responsibility for the well-being of every member of their family, whether or not they are actually related.
As long as Pisces 3 takes the time to select their partner very carefully, they stand a superb chance of creating a lifelong relationship. Should they rush into an unsuitable match, heartbreak will surely follow. Take your time, find the right lover and create a beautiful life together.
