The Negative Personality Traits Of The Pisces Zodiac Sign, According To Astrology

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

However, since they are also guided by water, the Pisces personality is known as one of the more kinder signs. Their intuitive nature is the first thing you will notice, as they are charitable even when you first meet them.

However, there are also negative personality traits this sign has, as does every other zodiac sign.

Those Pisces traits may 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 instead of harping on why things aren't going the way they prefer.

Here are 7 personality traits of Pisces that can be off-putting to others.

1. Pisces are escapists.

They will avoid confrontation by any means necessary. When something bad happens, they will blame it on something else, and never deal with the problem. This can often lead to unresolved issues in their relationships.

Hey, Pisces, it’s okay to face things head on sometimes — it may even be rewarding!

2. They don't have a strong will.

Pisces can be swayed easily. Due to their hatred of confrontation, they will often sit on the fence about certain issues which leaves them vulnerable to more indomitable signs.

They can also become easily hurt when faced with a lot of criticism, and will withdraw instead of standing up for themselves.

3. They are pessimistic.

Like their fellow water signs Cancer and Scorpio, Pisceans 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 will 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.

4. Pisces can be lazy.

Though they are extremely charitable and work very 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 are lazy.

They 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.

5. They can be stingy.

If you’re wondering which zodiac signs will always have the most money on them, look no further because Pisces is definitely one of those. They are not very materialistic, and as a result become extreme penny pinchers, having coupons that can date back for months, and always hesitate spending too much money.

If you need someone to stretch a dollar out of just fifteen cents, they are the first group of people you should find.

6. They are gullible.

Pisces love 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 want to really 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.

7. Pisces are idealistic to a fault.

Though it is great to be imaginative, Pisces zodiac signs live with their heads in the clouds. This causes them to react irrationally to some situations, or not plan things all the way through.

As a result, they often find themselves in trouble when reality hits after days, or even weeks daydreaming instead of being responsible.

The negative personality traits for Pisces are hardly visible to most people. In fact, they only show these traits to those that they care about.

Just remember that this mysterious sign is guided by Neptune and Jupiter, so unless they are pushed into situations where they need attention, they are more likely to blend into the crowd, never to show either side of them.
