As a Pisces, I can tell you pretty confidently that we’re a bunch of hard-to-read sons-of-bitches.
Don’t stress though – beneath all the layers, we’re actually very sensitive people who are eternally loyal. It just takes some time to discover that.
Though you have to admit, you either have no idea what’s going on in your Pisces-friend’s/boo’s head, or you are the Pisces who constantly feels misunderstood.
You’re not alone, and you can thank your sun sign for all that confusion:
1. Pisces is the 12th sign of the zodiac.
Because Pisceans are the last sign of the zodiac, they have a mix trait of characteristics from all the 11 preceding signs. Pisces are in a somewhat constant battle deciding how they feel, and this can make it really challenging for a non-Pisceans to figure out exactly what they’re feeling/thinking.
2. It all depends on their mood.
The tricky thing is that Pisceans can be both very impulsive and over-thinkers, depending on how they’re feeling. They are not easy to pin-down or categorize as either an extrovert or introvert. In fact, you’ll probably never figure it out.
But even if it doesn’t seem like it, they will always consider your feelings.
3. Empathy is a driving force.
Pisces are extremely empathetic. They tend to vibe off people very easily and they’ll be the first person you’ll want to call when you have a broken heart or a problem at work.
Mixed in with their over-thinking, this can sometimes be chaotic because they often place another’s emotions before their own, leaving themselves overwhelmed.
4. Their energy level depends on their environment.
They are introspective, but are often the life of the party – it’s all about whether or not they vibe with the people around them. Because they’re also so sensitive, they can get annoyed easily, causing them to withdraw into themselves.
This can cause a lot of confusion for Pisces as they need human connections to be happy and they have an abundance of compassion even for strangers, but are also so selective with the company that they chose to surround themselves with.
5. It can take a while for them to let you in.
They need time to warm up, so, like, chill. Their contradictary traits can make times quite lonely for Pisces because they connect with people easily and people feel very connected to them, but it’s also at their core to isolate themselves.
It can take years for Pisces to let people in deeply, because once they do, they are eternally loyal and caring.
6. The are frighteningly perceptive.
Could be why they often prefer to be alone than with people who are not worth their time. You’ll sometimes be shocked at how accurately they can read people; since Pisceans are a unique blend of both an extrovert and introvert, they rely on their own internal instincts and logic to make decisions and form beliefs.
This can also be annoying because they can always tell when someone isn’t being truthful – a mixed blessing. Their intuition is always on point though, so try to listen when they give you advice about that shady friend or boyfriend.
7. You’ll be surprised to see how quiet they can get after seeing them be the life of the party.
That’s the introverted side of Pisces. If they see you after a long day, they might be all irritable and not want to talk. It has nothing to do with you. Pisceans often need to recharge after a large use of social energy. After a long day of dealing with people, their social batteries are drained and they need to unwind and recover – usually alone.
8. It’s a bitch to date for them.
Pisceans will go through faces of not caring, living in the moment, and not taking anyone too seriously. Of course, that only lasts for about a week. Their sensitivity always catches up to them, no matter how much they try to run from it.
Being overly-sensitive is at the core of every Pisces, which is fortunate for all their friends and lovers since they make the best friends and partners. But, it’s unfortunate for them when they instinctively take on the feelings of others’ and foster in a negative comment from so-and-so.
