THE PISCES LOOK
It's true; Pisces does look rather like a fish-a very sexy,
attractive fish, but a water creature nonetheless. It is usually the
large, impassive or sleepy eyes and the full mouth that give this
impression. Whether the Pisces eyes are pale or dark, there is
invariably a "watery'' look about them Pisces complexion is generally
rather pale or delicate in appearance and the shape of the face or head
is somehow odd-either ex tremely thin and narrow or extremely wide. The
brows are prominent, and often the eyebrows are thick or large. Pisces'
hair is generally dark, thick, and wavy, contrasting strongly with pale
eyes. He is rarely tall, but his shoulders are usually large,
contrasting with a narrow or long waist He has a tendency toward a
clumsy gait, walking with a stoop or slumped shoulders. In his stance,
he seems to be wanting to pull everything inward.
In his dress, Pisces is always extremely clean-changing clothes
several times a day if he feels soiled-but he manages to make his
apparel seem sloppy. He wears what is comfortable, usually something
loose, and he makes no effort to coor- dinate colors or styles. If
attending a costume party, Pisces will choose something highly
imaginative or creative, too original to predict, or he will select
something related to his spiritual nature-such as a religious figure-or
his watery base-such as a fish, a sailor, or a sea captain. Because of
the connection between Pisces and film, he might also go as some
old-time film star or character from the movies.
THE PISCES NATURE
The most mutable of the signs, Pisces sometimes appears to be almost
characterless, but those who put down Pisces are missing a great deal,
for his can be the most spiritual and the most creative sign of the
Zodiac. It can be worth the extra effort it takes to get to know the
Much hides beneath his surface passivity or aloofness. Pisceans are
the poets and dreamers of the Zodiac. In some ways they are like
sponges, soaking up knowledge, understanding, and sensations wherever
they go. They miss very lit-tle, though they do not react outwardly,
and they incorporate every sensation into their very special view of
Despite the fact that gay Pisces loves make believe and fantasy he
does perceive the real world with accuracy. They understand the
material, but they value the spiritual more highly for Pisces is one of
the "double" signs-half body, half spirit.
This is one of the reasons Pisces seems so indecisive, unable to
make up his mind about the simplest things-making choices on a menu,
deciding what to wear, when or where to meet someone It is also the
reason he procrastinates. He sees all of the possibilities, and the
"pros" and "cons" of each. He understands too much, and is therefore
unable to act.
Pisces is at his best when he devotes his life to helping others; he
wants to heal, to relieve suffering, to be of use to humanity; and he
can be an excellent doctor or psychiatrist. He is also a good artist or
actor. His ruling planet, Neptune, rules films, and he does indeed love
the cinematic form.
Pisces likes seclusion, even isolation. If left entirely on his own,
he may withdraw completely from the world, preferring to stay at home
alone, rather than go out among strangers. But in a relationship, gay
Pisces becomes a devoted lover. His selflessness comes to the fore, and
he merges his entire being into that of the person he loves. If he
cares about someone, he will defend that person to the death, unwilling
to see defects in his loved one.
Yet he will not fight for his own rights, but will instead step
aside. He does not like competition at all, and for this reason he
tends to avoid sports and games.
Because of his passivity, gay Pisces will not be likely to initiate
a love relationship; but, so long as his partner takes the lead he can
be a truly passionate lover, for his nature is highly sensual and
erotic. His love, however, is not just of the body, but of the spirit
THE PISCES CHALLENGE
The Pisces challenge is a difficult but not impossible one. He must
learn to value himself, to stand on his own feet, and to fight for what
he wants and what he believes in. Pisces lacks self confidence, a
belief in his own worth, and he must endeavor to acquire that in order
to be of true value to others.
Pisces tends to retreat when faced with difficulty; this retreat may
be into solitude or it may be into things much more dangerous to his
deeply spiritual nature-into drugs, alcohol, or a fantasy world. He has
a tendency to accept a fatalistic view of his life, rationalizing that
what he wants or dreams about is impossible for him, rather than going
out and trying, taking the chance of being proven right or wrong.
It is his challenge to overcome all these negative traits, to
realize the true talent and creativity he has to offer. The love and
approbation he wants so desperately from others will come to him, once
he realizes how deeply lovable he is.
