The empath of the zodiac, Pisces absorbs the energy of other people really easily; as a mutable sign, the moods and energy of Pisces’ surroundings heavily influence them.
At its worst, Pisces can be self-destructive, overly attached, or even obsessed, wildly imaginative in a way that prevents them from being productive. Pisces is super creative and intense but can get carried away in the moment and is known for their dramaticism. But in check, this can be a good thing. When on the level of self-preservation, worrying can be like keeping an eye out for trouble, but when in a downward spiral, worrying can be the crutch that prevents you from doing anything new.
Pisces is ruled by Neptune, the almighty God of the Sea. Neptune is mythologically known as a temperamental tormentor who he was feared for how easily infuriated he was, often creating these insane, destructive earthquakes and sea storms. As a planet in astrology, Neptune is known for ruling all that lies beneath. This includes mystery, secrets, the subconscious mind and dreams. Neptune, and therefore Pisces, loves that which cannot be seen. They know that even if you can’t see it, it may still be tremendously important. Think: personality and emotional intelligence.
