Imaginative, Compassionate, Sensitive, Selfless
Pisces live in a world of feelings and are extremely sensitive. It’s not uncommon for them to feel not only their own burdens and joys, but those of others as well. These emotionally sensitive beings often put the needs of others before their own, and so are vulnerable to being taken advantage of.
Pisces try to hide their vulnerability behind a mask of superficial self-confidence but overall they aren’t very good at maintaining this disguise. Their extreme sensitivity can make it difficult to lead an ‘easy’ social life. They can be vulnerable to depression and beset by self-pity. They should be cautious of escapes involving addictions.
If Pisces remains true to his ideals and doesn’t shut himself off from the world, he has the ability to penetrate the deepest secrets and mysteries of life. Otherwise he could find himself feeling helplessly trapped in life’s difficulties and simply give up, avoiding all conflict.
