Pisces is symbolized by two fish swimming in opposite directions, representing the constant separation of Pisces's attention between fantasy and reality.

Since Pisces are represented by two fish, it makes sense that it is also a Water sign. Water signs tend to be emotional and intuitive. They are deep like the ocean and extremely complex.


Pisces are a mutable sign, meaning they are very adaptable. They prefer harmony over conflict.

Their ruling planet is Neptune, making them intuitive and artistic. Their emotional intelligence is unmatched, and they process things on a deeper level than the average person.

Pisces can be some of the best friends to have. They are genuinely nice people who care deeply for those around them.

What are the characteristics that make Pisces so nice?

1. Pisces are generous.

Pisces are undoubtedly the most selfless zodiac sign. And because they're so intuitive, often they don't even need to be asked to drop everything and help a friend out.

Your car breaks down? Pisces will be the first to offer you a ride. Feeling chilly? Pisces will offer you the coat off their own back.


They have a tendency to put the needs of others ahead of their own because they are always willing to say yes when a friend is in need.

2. They are a compassionate zodiac sign.

As a Water sign, Pisces are ruled by their emotions. With this brings a deep compassion for others. They have a difficult time leaving people who are suffering and demonstrate concern and sympathy towards those in need.

If you are feeling down, seek out a Pisces friend for comfort. They will listen to you everything you have to say, give an incredible hug, and then motivate you to get back out there. They are always full of compliments and encouraging words.

3. Pisces zodiac signs are empathetic.


Because Pisces are so in tune with the emotions of others, they are an incredibly empathetic zodiac sign. If you need a shoulder to cry on or a friend to rant to, there's no one better person than a Pisces.

They don't simply feel sorry for you, but they are able to completely put themselves into your shoes.

Imagine your co-worker is completely overwhelmed with work. They have piles and piles of paperwork and must come into the office over the weekend. You can't offer any actual help because it's not the same kind of work that you do.

An empathetic Pisces would understand what it's like to feel overwhelmed and make an effort to help their college regardless. On Saturday they would show up with a box of donuts and some encouraging words.


4. Pisces are non-judgemental.

Pisces enjoy listening to others and learning new ideas without judgment. They have an open mind and listen intently when someone is speaking with them.

If you have a new idea that you are afraid to tell people about, head to a Pisces. They will actively listen without judgment and are the perfect sounding board for new ideas.


5. Pisces are always approachable.

Pisces have an uncanny ability to make those around them feel understood and accepted. They are easy to talk to and are very approachable.

If you are at a party with people you don't know (post-COVID, of course), a Pisces is the perfect person to strike up a conversation with. Though they aren't the most extroverted and likely won't be the center of attention (that is reserved for a Leo), they are a great person to talk to.
