Pisces man - February 19-March 20
The Pisces man is the last sign in the zodiac and considered to be an 'old soul.' Pisces men are torn between the spiritual realm and the real world of materialism. Pisces men may never seem entirely at ease as a result of these pulling forces.
This zodiac has been assigned the sign of fish. But there is nothing ‘fishy’ about the Pisces man. Outgoing and easily approachable, he has all that it takes to be a gentleman. The only characteristic he has akin to a fish is that he loves to swim in deep waters. Mystery, isolation and sympathy are dear to him and you will find a good listener in your Piscean friend.
When you meet a Pisces male recall the Piscean symbol—two fishes. The fishes are moving in opposite directions much like the Piscean mind. This does not mean confusion…it is simply indicative of the depths to which he can go with his mysticism or the heights he can achieve with his dreams. There’s nothing more realistic than dreams for a Piscean male. All in all, he’s a wonderful companion. So if you are friends with a Piscean, the only thing I can tell you is ‘Happy fishing’!
How can you identify a Pisces man in a crowd?
That’s a tricky one! Unless you are a part of the conversation involving a Piscean it is difficult to spot them in a crowd. Piscean men don’t possess overt qualities that set them apart from the milieu and if you are not keen in your observation, you are likely to miss identifying them.
When amongst people, a Pisces man can be identified with the limited hints that he drops, namely, over-friendliness and opinionated conduct. Certain emotional reactions or comments, unsolicited advice and eagerness to comment or help are other giveaways. But all these signs are quite subtle as he is not aggressive in any of these traits. He is undoubtedly an extrovert but without being vociferous. One remarkable quality that sets him apart would be his keenness to help, with advice or action, anyone and everyone around. While this doesn’t make him a bad person, it can make him come across as interfering.
What are the key features of his personality?
“I dream, therefore I am.” Piscean men are a personification of Strindberg’s (A Swedish playwright and writer) thoughts. Driven by ambition, the Piscean man believes in dreaming big. He is also adventurous and impulsive by nature, which only adds to his ambitiousness. Piscean men with the achiever spirit know how to welcome an opportunity when it comes knocking. They know how to make the most of everything. With ambition also comes the desire to draw out the best from life, including materialistic pleasures. For the Piscean man, getting the much coveted home theatre system or a fancy sports car or four wheel drive is also a part of success in life.
What is his approach towards life?
In two words, his mantra is ambition and adventure. For a Piscean man ambition takes precedence over all else. His ambition makes him aspire for all things good, including material pleasures. His nature is an odd mix of contradictions. Although you will find him generally satisfied with life, he will never be content with what he has achieved. For him each day comes with new challenges and aspirations. But it would be unfair to call him arduously ambitious. Although he likes to climb the ladder of success, he is never deceitful or mean in his intentions. He would rather give up his ambition than hurt anyone deliberately. And remember the dreamer that he is! His dreams are founded on idealistic goals; that’s why his ambitions are based on certain pre-defined ethics. And he is never aggressive about it either.
Is there more to his persona?
A Pisces male is artistic, creative and spiritual. He is highly intuitive and comes with a rather honed sixth sense. If you have an eye for detail you will see him enveloped in a spiritual aura. His intuitiveness makes it possible for him to see through people and it’s not easy to fool him.
But he is also an emotional being and loves a sob story now and then. So he is easily entrapped by tales of sorrow. Usually he is ever ready to help people, by deed or money. Because of these qualities he is often misused. This can cause him much hurt. Given his sensitive nature, things like accusations, dishonesty, disloyalty and lack of faith don’t go down well with him.
Since he is emotional and sensitive he is also easily hurt. Therefore it is necessary to give him space. He uses his personal space and time to revitalise his energies and you will usually find him replete with enthusiasm and zeal for life once he is out of hibernation. He is also secretive, which is another reason for his want of space.
How is he when in love?
If you are being pursued by a Pisces man, you will see the persuasive side of his nature in its full glory. The more you play hard to get, the more he will enjoy pursuing you. He will be all glib and slick in expressing his love and will say all the things a woman likes to hear.
But women who are in love with Pisces men should realise that their man has a goal oriented mindset. And whatever his romantic dreams may be, his ambitions will always be his topmost priority. I sometimes wonder whether ambition is the right word to use for a Piscean and I am using it here for want of a better one. Actually this guy is an idealist and his dreams are his goals. He fights and works to achieve his dreams. But how well he excels depends on how realistic his dreams are. If your partner is a Piscean, it will be up to you to back him in his plans. You need to be alert and clever enough to know if your man is actually stepping towards his aim or merely walking in a trance.
Pisces men are committed to their relationships, but men being men, some Pisceans are no different. They are quite capable of promiscuity although they will not be able to handle it if they’re at the receiving end.
While dating him you should…
…be prepared to talk to a mask. For that’s what a Pisces man is. He is a face with a mask…a smiling mask for sad moods, a pensive mask for playful moods and a nonchalant mask for intense moods. He is a funny mix of opposites. He will feel something and pretend to experience something else all the time. Don’t think this to be confusion or lack of self awareness. It is in fact his way of playing hide and seek with his emotions. He will never show his true emotions to anyone and will constantly endeavour to hide them…even if it means acting out the exact opposite of how he feels on the inside.
Rather complicated isn’t it? But once you know why he does that it would be simple to start the dating game. A Piscean knows his sensitivity is his weakest bone and he completely avoids divulging his state of mind in order to shield himself from emotional harm. In the initial stages of dating him, you would need to get past his reserve to gauge what he is really like.
What does he look for in a partner?
Love is a lifetime commitment for a Piscean male. He thus seeks a partner who mirrors his ideals and complements his idealistic, romantic disposition, thus eliminating chances of conflict of temperament in the future.
With his dreams providing direction to his life, the Pisces man looks for a woman who not only understands and respects his aspirations in life, but also contributes towards his achieving them by being his emotional anchor.
To the Piscean lover, romance isn’t all about physical pleasures. It’s more about finding a soul mate for himself. His love transcends all levels of humanly pleasure and rests on building a special bond with his partner. He would thus, consciously and unconsciously, be attracted to women who are able to touch his soul and connect with him on a higher level.
Pisces man and…
Aries woman: 7/10. The Aries woman is too self-absorbed to understand the needs of a Pisces man. Such a relationship can work out only if the Aries female shows patience, understanding and gentleness. But this could work wonders in case of a Passive Aries woman and a Pisces man.
Taurus woman: 6/10. With a Taurean, the relationship will be harmonious as both are easy-going and dependable.
Gemini woman: 5/10. This combination might result in clashes as there is likely to be a battle between the Gemini’s pragmatism and the Piscean wistfulness.
Cancer woman: 9.5/10. A relationship between a Piscean guy and a Cancer girl is likely to work out, given their emotional, sensitive and sympathetic nature, with a soft corner for filial ties.
Leo woman: 4/10. This is a case of opposites attract and both will need to make many adjustments to make this relationship work.
Virgo woman: 6/10. Again opposite forces are at work, but there are no conflicts involved.
Libra woman: 4/10. Although they share a lot in common, the essential nature of both the signs is quite paradoxical.
Scorpio woman: 8/10. Here there is a right balance between similarities and dissimilarities and therefore the compatibility amongst these two signs is strong.
Sagittarius woman: 4/10: The fundamental features of these two signs are quite different with Sagittarians being very straightforward and Pisceans being subtle, making it a difficult relationship that will need lots of efforts.
Capricorn woman: 7/10: There is a certain level of harmony between these signs as both are emotional, intuitive and introspective.
Aquarius woman: 4/10: The passive Piscean can never match the ardour of the exuberant Aquarian. Moreover, Aquarians are more practical than emotional, something that just doesn’t gel with the Piscean nature.
Pisces woman: 9/10: One couldn’t ask for a better match! The Pisces man and woman get along really well with each other, complementing each other’s sensitivity.
