I do believe somewhat in Astrology, but don’t follow my astrological sign daily. I prefer to try to make my own destiny. Though there have been times of deep confusion when I just didn’t know where to turn or what path to choose that I did do some astrological research. My sign is Pisces and the characteristics of my sign are usually dead on.

Pisces Astrology February 19 – March 20
Pisces Strength Keywords:
– Compassionate (yes)
– Adaptable (Yes)
– Accepting (yes)
– Devoted (Yes)
– Imaginative (Yes)
Pisces Weakness Keywords:
– Oversensitive (Unfortunately..YES)
– Indecisive (Yes)
– Self-pitying (Darn it..Yes!)
– Lazy (I can be, but overall in my life I have been told I am the hardest worker they have seen. So..not sure about this.)
– Escapist (Yes..I can be. Especially watching videos at home. Watching the entire LOTR and HOBBIT movies back to back for example because I am depressed.)
Physically the say Pisces have the most trouble with their heart and feet. Absolutely true. I have had heart issues and I have feet issues.
Emotionally: Depression. All my life this has been a problem.
Psychic: I have been known to go up to someone and suddenly take their hand and be able to tel them everything about themselves. I have scared quite a few people with that and definitely don’t make friends that way. I think it happens when these people need to know something about themselves they are hiding from themselves. Not sure. i watch out for this and have kept myself from doing it. I used to have premonitions. Not so much since I refuse to allow myself access to this part of myself. I didn’t see anything I liked. “Pisces eternal struggle is to learn to use their powers and their imagination in a positive, productive way and vying for emotional stability by not giving away their emotions to everyone else, they need to help themselves.” My Psychiatrist once told me that if I keep giving out the life jackets in the boat with all the holes I will go down with the ship.
Life partner/Love: Scorpio is the best match. I have to say that is absolutely true. Even before I knew my hubby was a Scorpio I just felt he was the perfect fit. My hubby is the ultimate Scorpio and I have never felt more like someone is my soul mate than with him.
This is something I am wrestling with right now. I have majored in a business area and I have been told I am good at it. But, I am a touchy, feely manager to a point. But, don’t go over that point. I am acutely aware though as of late that I may not be cut out for this. I am more drawn to writing and creativity and working on social causes and helping people. According to this site this may be why and I would like it to be true. The self-doubt is definitely an issue. especially with my writing. That is what I am really working on now. Self-confidence.
Pisces and Business:
“Pisces are excellent at anything that tugs at the heart strings and mystical/spiritual. They are extremely creative and can use their skills of creativity and their understanding of people to inspire others. Unfortunately, most Pisces take the easy way out in life and never attain the degree of fame that they possibly could, they have to stop self-doubting themselves because they are capable of being good role models and leaders to others, people do look up to them”
I could go on and on, but these are the parts that really seemed to fit and show what I am fighting. They say Pisces use drugs to escape and other types of “numbing” techniques. I am proud to say I don’t do drugs and do not use alcohol. Though I do have a spending problem and I have had other issues that I won’t go into here. But, I am working on control and that is what is important. That no matter what your horoscope says, they are personality traits and can give you insight into why you do what you do. Ultimately it is you who decides how you are defined and how you allow these traits to shape you.

I enjoyed reading this. Have you ever had a Jyotish astrology reading, also called Vedic astrology. It is ancient form of astrology from India. I went for a reading many years ago for the purpose of proving it nonsense and the man laid out my whole life in front of me. Even the dates were so accurate. I don’t use it for future prediction much but it is very validating and helps make sense of what is and/or has happened. It can also be used for relationships and for identifying best, and worst places to live.
No. I haven’t had that type of reading. I will need to see if there is someone nearby that does them. I used to use I Ching and I thought it was very enlightening. At the least it gave me time to meditate and perform some introspection.
I know people who will do readings over the phone, but I think that face to face is better if possible.
Thanks Karuna. I will try to find a face to face meeting for a reading. I could use some help with direction. 😀
Let me know what you think if you get a chance to do it!
My boyfriend is a Pisces and exhibits just about every trait you listed. I wish the two of you would start being more positive. BELIEVE IN YOURSELF. You are a WONDERFUL, BEAUTIFUL, TALENTED BEING…embrace that shit!!! I have to remind him all the time to not let things overwhelm him and to quit being a perfectionist, because…the work being done or the creation being created is perfect, already! Seriously!! And don’t take everything personally! LOL, you “Pisces Water Fish” as I say, are some wonderfully interesting creatures, and I love you!
Thank you Athena. 😀
