If you’ve read your astrology books, you will know that Pisceans are supposed to be the romantic, poetic dreamers of the zodiac – the ones who have visions and are somehow mystical. Lovely! But my fave Piscean fact is that uber-business man Rupert Murdoch is one of you. He hardly comes across as some sort of floaty poet BUT does that guy have vision or what? Yes, don’t be mislead by the tales of Mystery and Imagination which surround your sign, you are also someone who can deal very well with the modern world.
But about that Mystery side of you. Even if you don’t talk about it with your friends, you’re almost certainly aware that you’re what psychics call ‘sensitive’ you can pick up vibes (very handy in business as well as in your personal life). You are usually considered the most otherworldly of the zodiac, even if others don’t know that about you. Pisces does also rule music, drugs and wine.
Pisces is the imaginative minstrel, the lady with the crystal ball that fills with a mist, the generous drunk, and the artist. Pisces is associated with not one, but two rulers, Jupiter and Neptune. Jupiter is the avuncular Father Christmas of the zodiac who makes you give with your heart, mind and money. He’s also the planet who allows money to slip through your fingers. Neptune is the planet who confuses us all, and in whose fog we find delightful Piscean mysteries. You’re a mutable sign you move as the tide takes you. Your symbol is of two fishes swimming in opposite directions, which is a lot like you.
You can be a business person, with a tough veneer and a sharp suit, while underneath it all is a Jupiter/Neptune softy – a mushy person who is sometimes a little too susceptible to coercion and suggestion, always open to enjoyment and perhaps even sometimes a little too self-indulgent. And maybe plays guitar. You can calm people down just by walking into the room and your generous spirit pervades any gathering.
A Water sign, like Cancer and Scorpio, you are rarely the one with the sharp tongue or the raised voice. You’re far more likely to merge with something soft and slither away from trouble than to head for it well, most of the time! You give people hope and faith when they’re lacking it. You have visions that few can match, which is where your psychic gifts come in. Listen to your intuition because it has much to teach you, just as you have much to teach others about using their intuition. Whether or not you get it, Pisces is a super spiritual sign. Part of the reason for this is that your sign knows how to make sacrifices for others when required.
You have lesser boundaries than most and you will give a part of yourself for others. But you’re nobody’s fool and can be effective in business. It’s important to be honest and to avoid playing the martyr. Help others to learn patience by showing them the value in going with the flow.
Pisces Medical Astrology
Feet, toes, the lymphatic system and adipose tissue are all specific areas of interest for Pisces. What does this mean for our fishy friends? You’re prone to bouts of influenza and colds due to the focus on the lymphatic system. Your zodiac’s concentration on the feet and toes also makes you more susceptible to foot injuries.
Neptune rules Pisces, and this planet rules drugs and alcohol. This makes Pisces the zodiac sign most likely to develop an addiction, and take watching TV, work, sex and emotions to extreme levels.
Pisces are incredibly artistic and creative, but this sensitivity also makes them prone to bouts of depression. Additionally, their empathy for others can often exhaust them, as they mirror the emotions of those around them. Pisces need to make sure they surround themselves with positive people to maintain high spirits! Expressing their feelings is also important for a Pisces, as keeping everything bottled up inside can lead to psychosomatic ailments.
To ensure optimum health, Pisces should of course eat plenty of fish as well as lemon, lime, juices, cranberries and apples. Avoid milk, due to lymphatic problems — dairy may cause a build-up of phlegm. Try living close to the water, it will soothe your soul, and ensure you have a harmonious relationship with your environment.
