Pisces has the distinction of being the mutable water sign. You could say that this is communication through emotion. Gemini may need to speak, Virgo may need to fix, Sagittarius may need to shout, but Pisces often just needs to listen. With just the right combination of planets and signs a Pisces can be an incessant talker, but usually they are quiet and they make excellent listeners. There are those Pisces that are withdrawn and seek the shelter of an inner world, and there are those that catch the handrails of any fast moving train. Life is a play, a make believe drama or comedy that they are immersed in. The Pisces has a universal awareness that was acquired by coming full up against life. More often than not, the experience was ineffable, and so they simply keep it to themselves. They have a finely tuned emotional sense and can walk into a room full of people and feel where it is safe and with whom, or even know if they don't belong there at all.
On the down side, some Pisces can't be expect to be punctual and practical, nor can you always rely on them for factual information. There are always a few Pisces people that are constantly in one tragedy after another, as though they had "victimize me" written on them. They may hold out their tragedies like a badge of honor as though they were great achievements. And for the very worst of the Pisces, if they are going down they will take you with them. On the other side of the coin, the Pisces can be a fighter and challenge destiny at every turn. Symbolized by the two fish, one that goes with the flow, and the other that fights the currents, it is seen that Pisces is both passive and aggressive.
A Gift of Empathy
A Pisces will often help you in some fashion and you will never know, for they prefer to be anonymous. They will listen to your story and tales of woe without offering advice or opinions, and furthermore, your story is kept confidential. The last sign of the zodiac has a universal element about it. It is the culmination of all the signs and it is something more than the sum of it's parts. Aquarius can provide a look at the trends of the future, but Pisces steps into universal awareness. It represents the final step as a return to a spiritual essence before starting over again with Aries.
