Pisceans possess a gentle, patient, malleable nature. They have
many generous qualities and are friendly, good natured, kind and compassionate, sensitive to the feelings of those around
them, and respond with the utmost sympathy and tact to any suffering they encounter. They are deservedly popular with all
kinds of people, partly because their easygoing, affectionate, submissive natures offer no threat or challenge to stronger
and more exuberant characters. They accept the people around them and the circumstances in which they find themselves rather
than trying to adapt them to suit themselves, and they patiently wait for problems to sort themselves out rather than take
the initiative in solving them. They are more readily concerned with the problems of others than with their own.
Their natures tend to be too otherworldly for the practical purposes of living
in this world as it is. They sometimes exist emotionally rather than rationally, instinctively more than intellectually (depending
on how they are aspected). They long to be recognized as greatly creative. They also dislike disciple and confinement. The
nine-to-five life is not for them. Any rebellion they make against convention is personal, however, as they often times do
not have the energy or motivation to battle against the Establishment.
Pisceans tend to withdraw into a dream world where their qualities can bring
mental satisfaction and sometimes, fame and financial reward for they are extremely gifted artistically. They are also versatile
and intuitive, have quick understanding, observe and listen well, and are receptive to new ideas and atmospheres. All these
factors can combine to produce remarkable creativity in literature, music and art. They may count among their gifts mediumistic
qualities which can give them a feeling that their best work comes from outside themselves, "Whispered beyond the misted curtains,
screening this world from that." Even when they cannot express themselves creatively they have a greater than average instinct
for, and love of, beauty in art and nature, a catlike appreciation of luxury and pleasure, and a yearning for new sensations
and travel to remote, exotic places.
They are never egotistical in their personal relationships and give more than
they ask from their friends. They are sexually delicate, in the extreme almost asexual, and most Pisceans would want a relationship
in which the partner's mind and spirit rather than the body resonated with their own. Unfortunately they can be easily misled
by a lover who courts them delicately and in marriage makes them unhappy by a coarser sexuality than they expected. They are
nevertheless intensely loyal and home-loving and will remain faithful.
In their employment they are better working either by themselves or in subordinate
positions. Their talents are individual in a commercial business or similar undertaking. They would be afraid to manage more
than a small department, worrying always that they would fail in a crisis. They can make fair secretaries and bookkeepers.
Their sympathy equips them for work in charities catering for the needy, as nurses looking after the sick and as veterinary
surgeons caring for animals. As librarians or astronomers they can satisfy their mental wanderlust, and their fondness for
"faraway places with strange-sounding names" may turn them into sailors or travellers. Many architects and lawyers are Pisceans,
and when the creative abilities are combined with gifts of imitation and the ability to enter into the feelings of others,
Pisceans find their fulfillment on the stage. Their psychic and spiritual qualities can lead them into careers in the church
or as mediums and mystics. They may find an outlet for their creativity as caterers, and are said to make good detectives
because they can imagine themselves in the place of criminals and understand how their minds would work. In technical occupations
they are well employed in dealing with anaesthetics, fluids, gases and plastics. Because of their lively versatility and inability
to concentrate overmuch on any one project, Pisceans often simultaneously follow more than one occupation.
