Zodiac Sign: Pisces
Discover what it means to have the sun sign Pisces.
Dreamy, imaginative and magnetic, you're an enigma unto yourself. Ruled by watery Neptune, you're drawn to people, places and things that are veiled by a haze of fantasy. Reality is harsh, and you'd rather float through life with rose-colored glasses perched firmly on your nose. You'll find the beauty where others see only ugliness, giving you a cutting-edge lens on the world. You are a true artist, with a special talent for dance, music, poetry and photography. Symbolized by two fish swimming in opposite directions, you often struggle to make decisions, commit or find inner peace. A part of you is always trying to buck the tide or escape from the current, while the other wants to make it all smooth sailing. Knowing when to stay and when to leave may be a lifelong challenge for you. Compassionate to the core, you're the shoulder that your friends and family always know they can lean on. When the chips are down, you're there in a heartbeat with a pot of tea, soothing words and an endless supply of hugs. At times, you may take on too much of a burden to solve people's problems. You're also a bit of a psychic sponge. Learn your limits, Pisces, or you'll end up burdened and resentful. If you're not in a strong enough place to offer support, it's OK to say no. Boundaries are something you struggle with in love as well. You are so empathetic that you may "become" your partner, losing your sense of individuality in the process. The right mate for you will know not to take advantage of your generous spirit. Find someone who showers you with love, babies you a bit, and helps you discuss issues from a logical perspective when you find yourself drowning in emotions.
