How to win at life with a Pisces Sun

You need to find something or someone that gives you direction, that someone can be you, once you learn to manage and understand all aspects of your personality.

Sometimes you are at odds with your mood swings, often getting confused and lost in them, you may have a tendency to depression, which leads you,  to want to escape your reality.

The evolution of the two fishes

Learn to trust your own inner voice, but even so, approach that with a bit of scepticism, learning all you can about the trivium, and how to organise your thoughts will give you, the much needed edge.

When in love you can get carried away with the fantasy of it all, failing to see the cold reality, make sure the object of our affections, genuinely wants you or you may find yourself being used for your good nature.

You tend to believe what people tell you, and see what others want you to see, which can lead to disaster, be careful when picking friends and lovers, as often those you call your companions are really your foes.


Individuals are drawn to you because of your empathetic ways, you’re listening skills, tenderness, devotion, helpfulness and charm, and at times you can be overly sentimental, seeing people via rose-tinted spectacles.

Remember a person’s actions is who they are, not their words, yes be romantic, the world needs that, but don’t let others walk over you, especially not in the name of love.

Self-respect, love and nurturing are needed, as this will help train your mind to understand what love is and what it is not.

Materialistic people are drawn to you, as you can show them to look at the more mystical thing s in life.

 Teaching others its not all about the possessions you own, nor the money you have, you can help others see the beauty in nature.

If you have aspects to your natal Pisces sun, involving Venus or also have Pisces, cancer or Libra rising, you can be an old romantic, having a lover or marriage partner can help you be more stable in life.

However watch out for your tendency to go off alone, without explaining to your partner where you going, you do not have let them know your every move, but keep them informed of your need, for downtime.

I note this, Pisces sun as often you can wanderer off doing your own thing, forgetting your in a relationship, because of your abstract nature.

Neptune and Pisces rule your feet, toes, pineal gland and the lymphatic system, when you re stressed you may experience problems in these areas, especially when you’re feeling depressed and fed up.

Much of your depression comes to form your indecision and not accepting life for what it is or people for who they are, life will always bring its ups and downs the best you can do is teach yourself to keep your head above water.
