Zodiac

If you were born between February 19 and March 20, you have a Pisces Sun sign. The sign of Pisces is ruled by Jupiter and Neptune — Jupiter is the planet of abundance; Neptune is the planet of dreams — which affect Pisces’ personality, and influences their deep thinking, psychic ability, and mysterious nature.

Pisces is represented by the Fish, which makes sense, considering they are a Water sign; Water signs are emotional and intuitive. But Pisces is also a Mutable sign, meaning they adapt to change with ease.

Pisces Man: Overview

Because the Fish is the last zodiac sign in the cycle, the Pisces man embodies all the traits of the other signs and has an ancient soul.

Deeply spiritual, the Pisces male also has a strong connection with his feelings; because of this, he tends to be artsy, but with all these emotions swirling around, it becomes overwhelming, causing mood swings. Just like the tides, their emotions come in waves.

Not only are men born with a Pisces Sun sign deeply emotional, but have extreme sensitivity toward most situations. These men tend to be empathic, absorbing the emotions of others around them; they are also imaginative, romantic, compassionate, charming, and introverted.

While they can be selfless and sensitive, Pisces men also tend to be idealistic, pessimistic dreamers.

Still, this man is a daydreamer to the core and can connect with others on a personal level. His passionate personality attracts potential mates easily, and he’s true to himself. Overall, Pisces guys have big, loveable hearts, and though they have weaknesses, what zodiac sign doesn’t?

Pisces Man In Love and Relationships

When Pisces men search for the perfect mate, he’s initially shy and unwilling to directly approach the object of his affection. While it takes some time for him to open himself up, once he does, it’s an experience anyone would be lucky to have.

Dating a Pisces man means being showered with romance and gentleness; he’s the type of person to show his growing adoration with selfless acts and endless catering to needs.

And once he falls in love, that selflessness permeates through the entire relationship. He loves fully and without limits, with the end goal of absolute harmony and peace between him and his partner. The ideal mate is someone who understands this level of romance, and wants something not-so-casual with him; if he’s rejected in this way, he becomes withdrawn, and that moodiness will consume him.

When he enters a relationship of romantic love, he’s a loyal companion, but there are a few drawbacks that some partners aren’t prepared for. His partner must accept his need to be overly romantic and emotional, and be prepared for moments of spontaneity and excitement. Because if his mate rebukes this, he will become disillusioned, begin to check out of the relationship, and look for something he thinks better suits him.

In terms of Pisces compatibility, this sign is most compatible with fellow Water signs Cancer and Scorpio, and Earth signs Taurus and Capricorn.

Cancer is emotional and sensitive, and has plenty of love to give; Scorpio is intense and passionate, and offer Pisces protection; Taurus can ground Pisces in reality, and the two share a love of art and beauty; Capricorn brings stability to a relationship with Pisces, and are kind and loyal.

Pisces Man Sexuality

In bed, Pisces men tend to only have satisfying experiences with those they are emotionally connected to; if he doesn’t yet have an emotional connection, sex will certainly open the doors to possibilities, but he must be careful, because this can often be confusing.

He can intuitively connect with his sexual partner, fulfill their needs, and add a creative twist. Sex with Pisces is truly passionate and loving, and they are open to trying non-conventional things, like acting out their fantasies or acting on their kinks.

Pisces Man Personality Traits

Pisces are empathetic and compassionate, yes, but they have a tendency to retreat into their own imaginary worlds, preferring to hide from their feelings rather than confront them. They are emotional and sensitive, but those emotions can change their moods in an instant; they also have pessimistic tendencies and have idealistic views of the world.

These empathic men are able to connect to others on a personal level, showing empathy and sympathy no matter the situation. Emotional by nature, if they see someone crying or upset, they too become this way.

Being this emotional also allows them the ability to be selfless, whether it’s towards a loved one or a complete stranger. They bend over backwards for those they love most, and are the shoulder to lean on.

Despite these redeeming qualities and sweet disposition, Pisces are prone to mood swings because they are overly emotional. Most of the time, they themselves don’t know why they act so negative, and in their confusion, tend to push others away.

This negativity can easily affect their friendships and romantic relationships, and they struggle to move on from situations that challenge them in this way.

Pisces Man: Career

Because Pisces men tend to do what they want, a typical corporate job isn’t an ideal career for them. They need jobs that allow them the freedom to control their hours and productivity, and have an outlet for their creativity.

Pisces also has a problem with authority in the workplace, and will often set their own rules to follow, creating tension.

Still, Pisces is creative and innovative, and once he’s working for something he’s passionate about, will devote his time and energy to the tasks at hand. He must, however, be careful not to overexert himself or he will become prone to exhaustion.

Good careers for Pisces include a social worker, salesman, counselor, teacher, veterinarian, writer, artist, musician, or nurse.
