You can be poetic without writing poetry. But in astrology, if you are one of the poetic zodiac signs, you probably want to express yourself in the most beautiful way possible.

Being poetic is defined as having an imaginative or emotional style of expression. You’re not only attracted to beauty, you see it where other people don’t. You’re sensitive — not only emotionally, but to the world around you.


Poetic types have a definite appeal, especially to pre-teen and teenage girls, and make for great characters in romance novels. When someone is poetic, you know for sure that they have a soul and would understand you. Besides, who doesn’t want to be the inspiration of a song or a poem?

Since poetic people tend to have their head in a more creative space, there are those who think they’re strange or unstable. They don’t understand what it’s like to live a life in pursuit of beauty and art. Poetic people may come across as naive or fundamentally unique, and that’s difficult for some to understand.


1. PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Besides being poetic, Pisces have an artistic soul. They're more in touch with their inner self than most signs.

This ability to access their imagination and their true sense of self helps them create beautiful and unique pieces of art, even if it may not be what others consider as beautiful. Pisces have their own way of looking at the world, and it's a poetic perspective.
