Pisces: February 20 - March 20

A Pisces Relationship

If you're interested in a Pisces relationship, you'd best be ready to let go of your worries and have a good time. Pisces people have few worldly ambitions; their minds are rooted in the strange, the foreign, the exotic and the mysterious.

They seldom waste their time in the everyday competition for wealth and power; there is too much fun and beauty in the world for them to be caught up in the "rat race."

The most difficult Pisces people are those who are actually careless about tomorrow and what it may bring, and even the more sensible types can have a distrust of the advice of others.

Pisces people usually have a strong sense of denial about their problems; many of them won't even acknowledge their problems exist, and busy themselves focusing on, and solving, the problems of others.

Swimming with the fishes

Pisces people are known to spend a good deal of time daydreaming.

Many of the artists, poets and writers born under this sign obtained many insights and inspirations from this state of mind. It doesn't work out so well for those Pisces people on the career path, but there aren't many of them.

To almost every Pisces, however, the world in a stage, and they are playing a role that they've created for themselves.

If you have a friend who's a Pisces, this knowledge can be a great asset to you: all you have to do is to be the director of the play that excites them and you can easily get them excited about swimming upstream, rather than floating along with the current that carries them further away from the goals they seek.

Pisces relationships; the down side

The biggest problems that most people have with Pisces result from their belief that they know what they are doing, and their difficulty with enjoying the common reality.

Many of them spend so much time in the wonderful and beautiful worlds of their imaginations that they lose their perspective and refuse to accept that they have a responsibility to themselves and to other people.

Those who get involved in helping professions (especially if that profession involves the arts, or the care and nurturing of others) do very well and release their natural ability to help other people feel better about themselves.

Others may find themselves trapped by their own denials and sit quietly waiting for their rescue.

Pisces relationships; the bright side

It's not unlikely that Pisces produces the most talented people in many fields, not only the arts, but in the sciences as well.

They all seem to be gifted with incredible intuitive and empathetic abilities. If they can keep their feet on the ground and avoid getting caught up in the crowds of "New-Age" thinkers, they are almost prophet-like when reporting their dreams and insights to those about whom they care.

Pisces people are also extremely helpful. They will certainly go that extra mile; not seeking praise or approval, but simply to use their creative and intuitive gifts for the benefit of others.

Every Pisces has the potential to be a great performer, if they can only put up with the hard work of rehearsing and following directions.

There are few people among the signs who are better storytellers, or that have the incredible Piscean ability to shake off the blows of fate and start over again with their charming laughter and wonderful abandon.
