Top 10 Characteristics and Personality Traits of Pisces Sun Sign

By  |  15 Comments

Pisces is the 12th and final sign in the zodiac cycle. Their element is the water which very well explains their nature of being very smooth and graceful. Their symbol is two fishes representing their dual personality, swimming in the opposite direction. This very well explains their basic trait of living in two worlds, one being the reality and the other one which is built up on various dreams and thoughts. They keep moving between consciousness and unconsciousness realms with the help of spirituality in quest for ideas. Being a Mutable sign, they are very adaptive in nature, blending and fluid in nature. People born in between February 19 to March 20 come under the Pisces which is ruled by the lucky Jupiter and mysterious Neptune. Deriving most of the characteristics from its ruler planets, Pisces is both idealistic and mysterious at the same time. But a Pisces is more than that, which obviously I’ll be enumerating below. Their lucky day is Friday and more compatible with Gemini, Virgo and Sagittarius. So I’m listing out some general traits that you will find in a Pisces for sure.

10. Oversensitive


Pisces are known for their ability to understand and absorb other people’s emotions and feelings. They prove to be a really good friend who will be with you in your ups and downs. But at some point of time, it can end up a Pisces getting too much involved in your troubles. They will take up your troubles as their burden and get completely messed up in it. Unpleasant events will upset them so much that they will surrender to addictions to divert themselves from negative thoughts. They are oversensitive to an extent that even the slightest of the remarks or jokes can end up making them drown in their own tears.

9. Compassionate


Have you seen a dolphin? They are known for their friendly and compassionate nature. They will make sure they don’t get eaten by sharks and even they won’t allow other fishes to get them eaten up by sharks. That is how a Pisces is. They are compassionate and friendly. They see others problems so clearly and end up taking it on to them. If you are their friend, they make sure they go out of their way to help and safeguard you against any such mess. They are a must have friend in your friend cycle and will be all ears if you have any problem troubling you. A Pisces derives this characteristic from its element water, being emotional and nurturing; they wash away your troubles and solve them for you.

8. Indecisive


A Pisces mind is never at rest.They mind is fully charged with thoughts, ideas and they build up their own world full of fantasies. They have carefully calculated plans for every situation in life and if they are encountered with anything beyond those plans they go crazy, literally. A Pisces is known to smell trouble beforehand and they prepare themselves. But when they are faced by many uncertain circumstances and situations, they tend to lose their bearing which will make them take hasty and unwanted decisions. Their indecisiveness is clearly seen when they have to deal with matters which isn’t in their hands. This trait makes them not fit to hold a leadership position in an organization.

7. Dreamer and Artistic


As I said, if you open a Pisces’s mind all you would see those wonderful little thoughts and dreams pulled and made up into a house of fantasy. They derive this trait from their ruler planet Neptune. Neptune is associated with anything psychic in nature and to achieve trance one has to be choose some line of activity which involves art or spirituality. If they are put up in jobs which ask them to do repetitive and monotonous tasks every day, it would displease them. They would rather choose a line of work where they can showcase their thoughts and dreams in the form of art. So they do when in arts, drama, dance, music, etc. They artistic and dreamer nature will take them the top of ladder where they would be appreciated for what they are.

6. Escapist


Imagine this scene, there is a fight or argument happening somewhere in the neighborhood or some unrest in the street next to you. Many people have gathered to see what has happened. Suddenly you see one person who is least interested in the issue, all he does is nod his head, smile and walk away like nothing happened. Yup! That’s a Pisces right there. Any violence scene happening, a Pisces would take a big U-turn and walk away in the opposite direction. That is because violence distress them and last thing they would do is stand up for it to and fight. Even the same happen in their own life like if encountered with any negativity or problems fearing they would get depressed with all the trouble, they try to escape from it thus succumbing to any kind of addiction to divert themselves from falling into frenzy.

5. Adaptive


One of the best qualities of Pisces is their ability to adapt to different situations and circumstances. Much like water, they are fluid and flowing, filling up themselves anywhere. This makes them best people to be it. They will put themselves in your situation and absorb your problem like a sponge. Being the 12th sign, it is said they have little bit of 11 preceding zodiac signs. This trait makes them difficult to be understood by people. It’s like they change themselves like a chameleon and would leave you awed by making you wonder how they even do that! A Pisces is known to foresee any kind of trouble that might crop in the near future, which makes them change themselves according to the event. It is like a head start for them and helps them in taking important decisions.

4. Self-pitying


A Pisces who is a Pandora box for themselves can make up so many scenarios and fantasy worlds which could be endless. These endless thoughts and ideas can make a Pisces  go crazy if there isn’t any control over it. If they lose control over it, they can resort to self-pitying because in the pursuit of fulfilling their perfect thoughts they could disappoint as nobody is perfect. There perfectionist attitude would frustrate them eventually. So to bring about a control over this ever flying mind of thoughts, they need someone who would be dominating to an extent to restrain them from disappointing themselves. If they find someone of such nature, they will allow that person to lead on and take control of their lives.

3. Social

Pisces loves adventure, social events and anything where people are involved. They are graceful while attending events and known by their debonair that radiates from their twinkle eyes. In a discussion happening, they are known to be the listeners. However, they are not fully silent but do voice their opinions now and then. Just because they will allow people to lead on, this doesn’t mean it applies to everyone. That is only reserved for people who the Pisces cares for. Since a Pisces is a Pandora box of thoughts, the discussions can be very interesting. A good social companion is what a true Pisces is.

2. Idealist


Much to the nature of ruler planet Jupiter, a Pisces is guided by ideas and ideologies surrounding it giving them immense intellectual and spiritual knowledge. A Pisces mind of abstract is in a constant search for ideas, exploring deep within realms of universe. More of spiritual realm, they seek out new ideas and connect the dots in their thoughts by seeking the path of spirituality. This will make the Jupiter ruled Pisces to travel all around the globe in the path to seek answers. These ideas and spiritual connection helps them being the perfectionist and helps them in creating a near perfect surrounding around them. Being a determined soul, they will make sure they accomplish it too.

1. Romantic and Love-struck

Every zodiac sign wants love, but no one will be as romantic and love struck as a Pisces. Being a dreamer, I already mentioned they have fantasy world built up for everything. This everything includes their love life and life partner too. They are way far from their reality when it comes to love and wish to live in their perfect fantasy world. Although completely romantic by heart, they get easily carried away by notions of love and fairy tales but by the end they are hurt since her expectations were not fulfilled. She feels cheated if her dream love life or her dream soul mate doesn’t turn up as how she had thought. If her dream of a perfect fairy tale life is destroyed like a windblown stack of cards, it can make her curl up into her unrealistic world not able to trust anyone anymore. Moreover, given a choice between money and love, they would choose love as money doesn’t appeal them in any sorts. For them materialistic desires are nothing when it comes to love and its sweet feelings.

    Lots of grammatical mistakes make this hard to read. This is an interesting article if your able to get past the errors. I must note, under #7 you say that Neptune is the ruler planet, then #2 says the ruler planet is Jupiter.

      The grammatical error in your comment makes this a little ironical, though. But yes, I agree, there are way too many mistakes in this article. But, an interest article this is.
      However, I would disagree with point #3. I can say from personal experience that Pisces people are not sociable.

      too funny b/c I was thinking the same thing. I’m very much an introvert and enjoy alone time. Also, being a writer I love to be alone and escape into my own worlds.
