"..the Piscean personality is the most unworldly one in the zodiac. It is the poet, the dreamer, or the psychic who enjoys being taken away from the mundane reality of everyday life. If Pisceans become trapped by circumstances in any one place, they will seek solace from their own inner world."
The Bright Side
Pisces is sympathetic and compassionate, and cannot bear to see another human being in pain. Indeed, Pisceans feel very deeply about other people as they do not have a strong sense of separation and individuality.
Pisces is an intuition sign which can receive great inspiration from beyond. Pisceans are thus the natural mediums and mystics of the zodiac who can communicate their inner vision through either the arts or sciences. Pisces can also be a sign of selfless or self-sacrificing devotion, and is capable of truly unconditional love for others.
The Dark Side
The Pisces personality has a number of sub-personalities who are likely to take over at the drop of a hat. They include the victim, the martyr and the saviour or rescuer; and once Pisces gets locked into these patterns, it can be very difficult to shift. This can be hard on other people involved, too, for Pisceans can inflict, or receive, considerable suffering when they enter into a guilt-ridden phase.
The other negative Piscean trait involves the illusion and confusion which surround their ability to tell the truth - known as lying by the more pragmatic signs. Pisceans tens d to be too imaginative for their own good.
Pisceans' feet and toes cause them the most anxiety. This is perhaps not surprising as, symbolically, it is the feet that keep this fanciful sign earthbound. They might find it therapeutic to 'feel the ground' beneath them by walking barefoot occasionally, or to use massage and reflexology to ease the strain.
Piscean sensitivity is so finely tuned that it reacts like blotting paper to atmospheres. When nursing the sick for instance, Pisceans are apt to reflect a patients' own symptoms themselves. Indeed, Pisceans often have problems defining the boundaries between fact and fiction in general.
In difficult circumstances, especially in relationships, this can lead to a tendency to withdraw from reality, with drink or drugs as a possible escape. Apart from the obvious disadvantages to health, such flights might further loosen a weak grasp of self-identity, causing deep depression. With such a tendency to addiction, Pisceans would do well to avoid painkillers and tranquillizers, using natural remedies instead whenever possible.
Pisceans can be so whimsical that all their energies are consumed in the plans they dream up; and in the end, they simply cannot say which direction they are facing. Pisces also rules the feet: and indeed Pisceans often need to be grounded, and to feel themselves in their own bodies. Any massage method would be suitable, but a particular appropriate one is reflexology, which works through the feet.
