What is a Pisces?

Pisces Zodiac Sign Traits and Compatibility

Pisces dates are from February 19 to March 20. Pisces are adaptable people who can talk to almost anybody because of their intuitive abilities to understand people’s needs. They go out of their way to help people and they often find their emotional reserves depleted, so they retreat into solitude to recharge their emotional batteries. The Pisces symbol is two fish and the word Pisces itself is actually a Latin word for fish. Multiple myths exist about celestial fish Pisces is named after and one account says that Aphrodite and Eros were turned into two fish so they could escape the wrath of the monstrous Typhoon. They swam to safety. Like the legendary fish the deities became, Pisces people know how to transform to take care of themselves and the people who they love. Join Spiritual Blossom for our intimate exploration of Pisces and learn about the planet and element that rules them, their positive and darker traits, and all about their best love matches.  Read all the way to the end to find out how to get your Pisces Horoscope delivered right to your email’s inbox today.


Pisces Traits

Pisces Zodiac Sign Traits and Compatibility

Pisces Personality traits are influenced by their ruling planet and their element. Neptune is their ruling planet and it makes Pisces people very in touch with their psychic abilities and gives them the power of inspiration. They are not only very inspired people, who are influenced by things they feel are good, but they inspire other people as well. Neptune, also a god of the sea, is a mysterious force that makes Pisces people drawn to secret things and it also makes them private people who guard their own secrets fiercely.  They don’t tell people things unless they really trust them, and even then, they keep a lot private. They are good at digging for the truth and they make great detectives, researchers, and counselors because of this. They love to investigate obscure things and they are open minded and non-judgmental of unique people with unusual outlooks. Neptune rules illusions and Pisces people love to daydream, plan things in their minds, and make believe about their perfect life.

Pisces are Water Signs. The element of Water bestows upon them a sympathetic nature, and they are more than just sympathetic. They are empaths who can literally feel other people’s feelings, and this makes them able to understand where people are coming from. It also puts them in connection with their own emotions, and they have powerful feelings about things that would not affect some other signs at all. Because they are Water Signs, they care deeply, and want to help solve problems, but they are also hurt easily. Their strong emotions mean they form powerful emotional bonds with people. Their emotions can also overwhelm them, and their way of coping with this is to retreat and decompress without other people’s energy invading their personal space.

Pisces Traits Female

Pisces women are not drastically different from Pisces men, but the classic feminine traits of being compassionate, nurturing, and humble can be more noticeable in them. They will cry when somebody they love cries, and they will go out of their way to comfort every troubled soul and dry every tear. They often step in to rescue strays whether they be human or another species of animal, and they surround themselves with people who they genuinely believe need their tender loving care. They are hopeless romantics who love to be wooed and they love to dote on lovers. Not only will a Pisces woman lavish attention on you when you are in her presence if she loves you, but she will be thinking of you over the miles, always sending letters, gifts, and the energy of their love. They use their imaginations to create beautiful things but also to come up with creative solutions that benefit the people who they care about. They use their psychic gifts, whether they use telepathy or clairvoyance, to help them learn about people and know how to help them.

Pisces Traits Male

Pisces men are not all that different from Pisces women, but the classical masculine traits of being assertive, taking on leadership roles, and being independent can be more noticeable in them.  Pisces people in general won’t go looking for a conflict, but Pisces men can be more likely to speak up if they think there is a problem than Pisces women can be.  As leaders, Pisces men prefer to mentor and guide people to succeed, and they won’t appreciate it if you expect them to do things for you. They prefer to help you shine and rise to challenges and succeed through your own hard work. They have strong expectations that you do your best, and while they will go out of their way to show you how to do something as many times as it takes, it’s a bad idea to disappoint them. If they decide you are not trying, they will quietly stop helping. They may need more alone time than Pisces women and stay single longer as well.


Pisces Bad Traits

Pisces Zodiac Sign Traits and Compatibility

It might sound like these sensitive empaths are the perfect people and that they can do no wrong, but even Pisces people have flaws. They can be ruled by their emotions and make hasty decisions when they are upset. If they feel overwhelmed, they can self-isolate to the point, people wonder if they will ever see them again, and they can completely fall off the map and refuse to return messages until they want to. Quite often, this type of self-isolation can occur after they have overextended themselves, doing too much for too many people, but they simply can’t stand it if they don’t do all they can to help. They don’t think about whether they are being appreciated by the people they help and can become so disgusted with people who take advantage of it, they will emotionally distance themselves from people who truly appreciate them while they are emotionally recovering from it. In their defense, somebody needs to care for the unloved, and they don’t mind the strain it puts on them. They just need time to recover, and that is not too much to ask.

They can be so enchanted by unrealistic daydreams, they become despondent when real life is not like a fairy tale, and on the other hand, they can stifle their own creativity. It’s not that they don’t want to let their creative talents shine, it’s that sometimes they will be so emotionally attached to things they have come up with, they will keep them to themselves out of fear of their ideas being rejected.  They can also emotionally distance themselves romantically by taking multiple lovers who they don’t care about on a personal level, and then become confused as to why they can’t work out a long-term relationship. Not all Pisces people are this way, of course, and when they do commit, they commit to people who they trust completely. That trust can take a long time to build if the Pisces allows their fears to come between them and lovers. Their emotions can make them prone to addictions, and they can be addicted to anything. Some are addicted to substances, some to playing video games, and others to things like gambling. However, these things help them escape the things in reality that upset them and give them the comfort they desperately need. After all, what would the world be like without the loving care of Pisces people?


Who is the Best Match for Pisces?

Pisces Zodiac Sign Traits and Compatibility

What is a Pisces man or woman like in love and who is their best match? Truthfully, on the surface, they can get along with anybody, but deep down, some people harmonize better with them than other people do. It is said that other Pisces and fellow Water Signs Cancer and Scorpio are their best matches but other people believe the Earth Signs Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn are their best mates.  Then there are people who insist that Pisces worst matches are the Air Signs Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius, but other people say they have less of a chance of success with the Fire Signs Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius. When a Pisces is in love, however, they will go out of their way to work through any challenges that may come up, so any sign can be their lover.


While it is true that Pisces people seek to resolve all problems, the yelling and temper flareups of Aries people will rankle their nerves. Aries people will have to watch their outbursts and communicate compassionately with their sensitive Pisces. On the other hand, Pisces are always ready to help, and they know just how to soothe Aries when they are upset.

Taurus Pisces couples can have it all together. Tauruses love to protect their emotional Pisces and their Pisces lavishes them with love and appreciation for this. These two can be together for life. Read about Taurus- Taurus Zodiac Traits and Love Compatibility (spiritualblossom.com)


Geminis like to have a lot of fun, as do Pisces, but Pisces don’t like the fact Geminis sometimes laugh about mean things. Geminis can find this overly sensitive and they don’t mind saying so.  A one-night stand between these two can be great fun, but they might not be able to work things out for long term love, even if they say, “I love you” because of personality differences.  To read more about saying “I love you” see here: When Should I Tell Him I Love Him? (spiritualblossom.com).


A Pisces man and Cancer woman might make the perfect pair. Pisces woman and Cancer man compatibility is high because both signs see the world with their emotions, and they bond with people based on feelings. They will both go out of their way to care for each other and put their relationship first. This can be perfect love forever.

Leos will make Pisces laugh, but they might struggle to form a relationship. Leos make a partner the center of their world, and Pisces might love a partner, but they are very focused on their romantic view of the world, which Leo can crack a few sobering jokes about. Whether they work things out or not depends on if the Pisces can set unrealistic expectations aside and the Leo can watch their sarcasm.

A Pisces man Virgo woman romance can be so perfect, this couple will be the envy of everybody. Virgos might spend a lot of time at work, but they take good care of their loved ones and Pisces appreciate this. Pisces will also follow Virgo’s lead and this relationship can be perfect bliss.

Libras and Pisces people can be great friends, but Libras are not always understanding of Pisces’ need to disappear for periods of time. Libras can be critical sometimes and Pisces won’t appreciate somebody analyzing them. These two can work things out if the Libra doesn’t try to change their Pisces and the Pisces is understanding of the Libra’s naturally critical nature. To read more about Libra, see here: What is the Best Libra Flower? (spiritualblossom.com)


Pisces man Scorpio woman couples harmonize well as long as the Scorpio does not feel neglected when a Pisces needs alone time. Pisces man and Scorpio woman lovers are very compatible emotionally, however, as they are both sensitive and need to do things for the people they love. Pisces can soothe Scorpio’s worries and Scorpios are protective lovers. This can be love forever. Read about Scorpio- The Best Love Matches for Scorpio (spiritualblossom.com)


Sagittarius and Pisces people are sometimes not the best combination. Sagittarians have a lighthearted approach to relationships and Pisces people take relationships seriously. These two make great informal lovers, but they may have challenges settling down together long term.


Pisces like how reliable Capricorns are, and Capricorns appreciate Pisces gentle hearted ways. Capricorns are very protective and will lead their lovers through all the challenges of life and the relationship. Pisces appreciate having a lover who they can rely on, and Capricorns love a loyal partner who lets them take charge. This is a match made in heaven.


Pisces see the beautiful dreamer in Aquarians, and they feel a kinship. These two have unconventional views, and they may find the perfect partner in one another. This can be their best match.


Two Pisces together can be the best match, or one that doesn’t work out at all. It all depends on whether they have the same values and want the same things in life. They appreciate having a partner who is empathic, creative, visionary, and allows them space to decompress emotionally. If they are in love, they will likely be together forever.


Pisces are sensitive, creative people who can see exactly how you are feeling, and they will know just what to do and say to make everything great. Not everybody can be a lover to a Pisces, because they need time to themselves, but that is just because they spend so much time doing so many nice things for so many people, they need to relax in peaceful solitude. Few can be as empathic or as creative as a Pisces, but anybody will be lucky if a Pisces loves them.
