Pisces (February 19-March 20)
Character Traits of the Astrological Sun Sign Pisces
Famous for psychic ability and emotional sensitivity, Pisces natives tend to be, like their polar opposite (Virgo), excessively focused on other people. They are unselfish peacemakers, helpers and soothers who work tirelessly to make life easier for others. Unfortunately, this also means they often neglect their own needs. Pisces natives can literally work themselves to ill health in serving the constant inner demand to be helpful to others. Neptune and Jupiter are both said to “rule” Pisces, an indication of the expansive dreamy imagination that is often a feature of the talents of a high-profile Pisces like Drew Barrymore. One potential roadblock for Pisces is its association with drugs, alcohol, and mood-altering experiences. Barrymore has been open about the effects of drugs and alcohol on her early life. Expressed in higher terms, this can result in terrific creativity, musical talent, a fixation with metaphysics, the occult, and meditative techniques. Pisces make wonderful diplomats, counselors, healers and psychologists, and are wonderful actors, artists and musicians. They learn to use their gentle sensitivity to make a deep empathic connection with the audience. Their deep imaginations permit them to plump greater depths. Dreams and visions are like second nature to them. Pisces make wonderful friends, always giving more than they take, and are passionate, deep and committed lovers.
