Pisceans tend to be strongly spiritual (not necessarily religious) and artistic. They are idealistic, but sometimes their dreams are vague and impractical. When reality intrudes they can become pessimistic or lethargic, but they are very adaptive and broad-minded so they can rework their ideals when necessary. Pisceans are imaginative, compassionate, and sensitive; they are sympathetic to the feelings of other people. They tend to be romantic and sentimental, but they may give in to escapism. They are devoted to their goals, but they can be disorganized or procrastinate when things become difficult. People born under Pisces are gentle, but they are fragile and may become timid if their emotions are abused too often.

Pisces is the Sign of dreams and secrets, and it represents much that is hidden, both strengths and enemies. Often people born under this sign are strongly intuitive, and they are receptive to the collective unconscious. Because Pisces rules the twelfth House, which rules dreams, people born under this Sign may be fascinated with dreams and dream interpretation.

Pisceans tend to be shy and quiet. They are sometimes elusive, refusing to show their real selves. They are modest and thoughtful, some display remarkable musical talent. Pisceans don't have a strong agenda; they tend to "go with the flow" and move where life takes them.

The great strength of the Pisces-born is in their compassion. They reach out to other people more skillfully than most other Signs, and especially enjoy helping others reach their fullest potential.

The Pisceans natural sensitivity makes them one of the most understanding characters of the Zodiac.
