Pisces are the Fishes with wishes, a dreamy and sensitive Water sign that is spiritual and creative in nature. Ruled by nebulous Neptune, intuition and imagination prevail with Pisces, and they are drawn to all things mystical.
Compassion and empathy for others come easy to emotional Pisces Fish, who feel the pain of the whole world and respond with sympathy to any suffering they encounter. Because of this interdependent attitude, Pisces can often put others' feelings first and neglect their own needs.
Pisces imagination is a wonderful thing, but it can also lead to confusion and escapist tendencies that invite problems. If Pisces can balance this vivid imagination with a realistic outlook on life, they can have it all.

What we love about Pisces
Pisces is the most compassionate and sensitive sign. They are able to empathize with everyone, so their friends, family and even acquaintances will always feel cared for and loved.
Why Pisces drives us nuts
Dreamy Pisces can have trouble distinguishing between fantasy and reality, and their tendency for escapism can result in problems with co-dependency, drugs, alcohol or other bad habits.
It's wonderful to dream, but don't let your imagination lead you into trouble. Keep one foot grounded in the real world, remain realistic and pay attention to everyday matters, too.
