What are the key characteristics and personality traits of the Pisces star sign? What impact do yearly changes have for the Pisces personality type? These questions are answered in this special in depth analysis of the Pisces star sign for the year ahead. If you are a Pisces or even if you know someone born under Pisces you should read this report carefully – this is a major year of change for the Pisces star sign.
Pisces is the twelfth house of the Zodiac and anyone born between February 19 – March 20 fall within Pisces, the sign of the Fish.
A Profile of the Pisces Personality Type
In order to fully understand the key characteristics and traits of the Pisces personality we first need to reflect on the key elements that make up the Pisces star sign.
Pisces is the most modest and some would say shy of all the star signs. Coming after the other eleven signs of the Zodiac it is common to find that the Pisces star sign is often reluctant to take centre stage. Often a Pisces is happy to let others take the limelight and in my experience I have even seen some born under Pisces go out of their way to avoid ever being the centre of attention.
This sometimes crippling shyness can be a major problem for the Pisces personality. It can mean that Pisces will often miss out on great opportunities simply because they were too nervous to put themselves forward and take action.
Another key characteristic of the Pisces personality type is a deeply held system of beliefs.
Sometimes this takes the form of a deep religious faith whilst in others it appears to be more of a focus on spirituality and calm. Either way, Pisces personalities tend to be deeply focussed on the positive aspects of life – even when things seem to be going wrong in life or in the face of major challenges.
One common criticism of the Pisces personality is that this sense of calm can sometimes appear to others as the Pisces being “cold” and “uncaring”.
It makes me sad when I hear this said about the Pisces personality because the exact opposite is true!
Yes – it may be true that in order to remain calm and focussed the Pisces in your life will detach themselves from the situation and look inwards to achieve a sense of peace.
However it would be a great mistake to think that Pisces is cold and aloof.
The Pisces personality is perhaps one of the most caring of all the personality types of the Zodiac.
Sometimes in order to protect themselves from deep hurt a Pisces will retreat into themselves to avoid further pain. This does not mean that they don’t care. It simply means that sometimes a Pisces personality can care too much.
If you are a Pisces ask yourself this –
Do you often find yourself worrying about other people’s problems when you should be thinking more about yourself?
Do you often get dragged into situations that should really have nothing to do with you?
These are both common situations that the Pisces personality type find themselves dragged into because they care so deeply about their friends and family. My advice to you Pisces is to take a step back sometimes and ask yourself this – By getting involved are you really helping the situation or are you getting involved to make you feel better about things?
This may seem harsh but I say it from experience. I have seen the Pisces personality taken advantage off many times across the years and it always started with a Pisces who “only wanted to help”.
To summarise – Pisces personality characteristics are kind, caring and compassionate. Astrology.com explains this in great detail if you are interested you can read more here however, let’s now look at how these personality traits will develop in the coming year.
Changes in Saturn Will Leave Pisces Feeling Frustrated
As I said at the start of this report – this is a year of great change for the Pisces personality. Recent months have been quite boring for those born under Pisces. Each day has blended into the next and days have turned into weeks and weeks into months.
It is not in a Piscean personality make up to complain about many things but be absolutely honest Pisces – the last few months you have found yourself getting slightly bored with your everyday life have you not?
There is no shame in admitting it Pisces. As a sign of water and movement it is your natural personality type to always want to keep moving forward in life.
This is a positive trait to have so embrace it Pisces. Your natural instinct is correct – trust your instincts and make a change.
The good news is that with the rise of Saturn will have a major and lasting impact on the Pisces star sign. Saturn is one of the most powerful of the planets in the Zodiac and as it begins to rise you will feel a major shift in you begin to take place.
The pull of Saturn on Pisces will have the following impact on the Pisces personality –
- Pisces will become more restless. You will become sick and tired of the same old routine and begin to crave excitement in your life. This can make things difficult for others to be around you in the coming months so take your time and have patience Pisces.
- You will lose your temper more often. As Pisces begins to get frustrated it is often those closest who suffer the most – once again Pisces – take my advice and remain calm with your nearest and dearest.
- Pisces will find common ground with the Leo personality type. It is rare that these two signs get along in such good harmony since they are such opposites in compatibility and personality type. However – as Pisces begins to change, the common traits with those born under Leo begin to grow and you will find that you actually have a lot of things in common.
Jealousy, Rage and a New Sense of Hope
When I said things were going to change for Pisces I really wasn’t kidding. The once calm and sedate Pisces personality will continue to change (quite dramatically) as the year progresses.
It is my prediction that by the time the Summer months arrive several negative traits will have established themselves in Pisces. Unlike other signs (such as Aries, Gemini and Leo) Pisces is not prone to fits of jealousy or rage – normally. However the green eyed monster really does seem to get a grip of Pisces and it is not a good thing at all. In my opinion it is the reason that Pisces will struggle to find a long term romance.
Your friends and family will wonder what has got into you. They will ask is everything ok? Are you feeling ok? They will be surprised that the once calm and collected Pisces they know and love has turned into someone quite different.
I want you to read this next section very carefully if you are a Pisces. It is important advice that will teach you how to regain control of your life and return to the personality type that you normally display.
Remember these words Pisces and you will make it through the storm of emotion that you feel.
What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.
If you remember this famous quote and take its meaning to heart you will find things become much easier for you and you will soon start to feel more like yourself again.
By acknowledging that the personality traits you normally display and that people love about you come from within and not from outside you will begin to feel a sense of balance again in your life. Accept that what has happened in the past should remain in the past. What is to come in the future really is beyond your control.
The only thing you can control is you. Take responsibility for your own actions Pisces. Accept your personality for what it is – and yes – that means the good traits and bad traits. Do this and you will feel yourself return to normal.
The anger that you feel, the jealousy that seems to consume you for no reason will soon begin to fade and you will soon start to feel “normal” again.
How to Deal With the Changing Pisces Personality
If you are a person in a relationship with a Pisces you should be aware of the major changes that are coming to the Pisces star sign. Forewarned is forearmed as the old saying goes. Mark my words however – a relationship with a Pisces will not be plain sailing.
If you see a change in the personality of the Pisces in your life here are my 5 most practical tips that you can use to make sure you help Pisces work through the change instead of making everything worse.
- Realise that you cannot control someone. You can only love them.
- Understand that the Pisces personality is stubborn – if you push too hard it is likely they will push back at you even harder.
- Listen to what they have to say – be sympathetic and understand that a Pisces loves nothing more than a good listener.
- Sometimes it is better to just walk away. Let the situation calm down and then resume the conversation.
- Have hope. Although you might not like the changes you see in the Pisces personality you can and should always have hope that they will change back and better times are ahead.
If you bear this advice in mind I predict that you will find things a lot easier. Your relationship with the Pisces in your life will be tested like never before so be patient, be calm and remember that this change in personality type is only temporary.
Learning to Love Negative Pisces Personality Traits and Characteristics
If you are in a long term relationship with a Pisces then you may have to accept that things will never be the same again in your relationship after the changes of the year. The personality type of Pisces may have changed so much that you may ask questions like – “Am I even compatible with them anymore?” or “Will our relationship last?”.
These are all natural questions to ask yourself after a period of change and turmoil. Let me give you my expert opinion on this.
Start by looking at yourself instead of your partner. How has your personality changed in recent months? Has it changed in a way that could have impacted on the Pisces personality? Nothing ever stays the same as before and everything changes. Although we might not like it we do have to accept it.
Things change. People change. Personality characteristics change.
The challenge I want to set for you is to learn to change yourself rather than trying to change other people. The Pisces personality does not react well to control or manipulation. The only way you can change the other person is to lead by example.
It may well be that you have to learn to live with the new personality the Pisces in your life develops. Is this something you are prepared to live with? Can you live with it?
Only you can answer these questions by looking at yourself and how you view the world and your relationship.
