Pisces Dark Side: Bad & Negative Traits Of Pisces

Pisces is the 12th zodiac sign in astrology, ruled by the planet Neptune. This means Pisces is led by mystery and transcendence, which explains why they are reluctant to express genuine emotions, are extremely sensitive, and let others know their true thoughts.

Since they are a water sign, the Pisces personality is one of the kinder zodiac signs. Of all the traits of Pisces, their intuitive nature is the first thing you will notice, as they are charitable at all times, even when you first meet them.

However, the Pisces sign also has negative traits that coincide with what makes them so wonderful. Let's explore Pisces' bad traits and dark side, including why they act the way they do.

What are Pisces weaknesses?

Pisces is pessimistic.

Like their fellow water signs, Cancer and Scorpio, Pisces can become very pessimistic, very fast. 

If things are not easily laid out for them, or they can’t determine a set path on their own, they automatically believe the worst-case scenario is bound to happen.

When this happens, they will flee as fast as they can to more familiar waters. 

Pisces is lazy. 

Though Pisces are extremely charitable and work hard to ensure that the people they care about are happy and free, when it comes to things they don’t care about much, Pisces can be quite lazy.

Pisces won’t put in more effort than they have to in order to complete a task, if they put in any effort at all. They are more likely to do the latter.

Pisces is gullible.

This zodiac sign loves seeing the best in people, but are easily manipulated as a result. 

A more calculating sign could easily get one over on Pisces because this sign wants to believe there is good in all people.

While it may be true, they often find themselves hurt due to the realization that not everyone has their best interests at heart.

Are Pisces bad at relationships?

Pisces traits include laziness, negativity, and idealistic views, and all of them often come without warning, leaving their partners confused as to how things escalated. 

But even in darker times, Pisces is more likely to figure out ways to regain the peace in their relationships, instead of harping on why things aren’t going the way they want.

Their tendency to think negative can also affect their romantic relationships, unintentionally sabotaging themselves and their partner in the process. 

Can a Pisces be dangerous?

Pisces tend to be stingy with their money.

They are not very materialistic and, as a result, become extreme penny pinchers, having coupons that date back months, and always hesitating to spend a dime.

Because they will do anything to make money and stay on top of their finances, they may become caught up in nefarious activities, which can escalate to violence, abuse, or something criminal.

What signs should Pisces avoid?

The Pisces zodiac sign is least compatible, and tends to butt heads, with Aquarius, Sagittarius, and Gemini.

Pisces and Aquarius

While Pisces and Aquarius are creative and intuitive, their different ways of dealing with emotions can cause friction.

Aquarius tends to bury their emotions, while Pisces has a strong need for sensitivity and passion.

Another difference they cannot overcome is Aquarius’ need for freedom, while Pisces is content with being a homebody. 

Pisces and Sagittarius

Though these two signs make good friends, anything past the surface level becomes problematic.

Because Pisces is emotional and dependent, and Sagittarius is free-spirited and set on independence, this leads to unbalance and discord between them.

Pisces often feels taken advantage of by Sagittarius, who is less interested in a long-lasting relationship and more keen on something less serious.

Pisces and Gemini

These two signs have many similarities, but find problems when it comes to defining a relationship.

Both are communicative and open-minded, but while Pisces tends to follow their intuition, Gemini makes decisions based on logic and reason.

A friendship may be possible, as each is open to differing viewpoints, but on a romantic level, that’s where things get complicated.

Why are Pisces so secretive?

Because Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac, they hold the traits of every other zodiac sign. This is especially true with the emotions and feelings of the other 11 signs.

Pisces tend to keep to themselves in this sense because they know what can happen if all is revealed, and how it affects the other signs.

They also will do anything to divert attention away from them, and will go to great lengths to protect their secrets, even if it’s at your expense.

Can Pisces be aggressive? 

Pisces are escapists and avoid confrontation by any means necessary. When something bad happens, they blame it on something else and never deal with the problem. 

They don’t have a strong will and can be swayed easily.

Due to their hatred of confrontation, they often sit on the fence about certain issues, leaving them vulnerable to more indomitable signs.

Pisces also becomes easily hurt when faced with a lot of criticism, and withdraws instead of standing up for themselves.
