It’s annoying how Piscean I’ve become with age.
In my younger years I didn’t relate to those wishy washy characteristics AT ALL. I was driven, good with money, practical and hated swimming.
(I also didn’t have much faith in star signs after working at a magazine where the astrologer was an alcoholic. She often didn’t submit her copy … so I’d make it up … I can’t believe I just told you that …)
Now I’m crap with money, dreamy, highly emotional and love nothing more than a dip in the sea.
The dreamy, highly emotional thing is driving me crazy.
(And I’m blaming the star sign thing because I don’t want it to be peri-menopausal hormones. I’m terrified of menopause.)
As List Crux notes in an article called Top 10 Characteristics and Personality Traits of Pisces Sun Sign – we’re “oversensitive”: “Pisces are known for their ability to understand and absorb other people’s emotions and feelings. They’re a really good friend who will be with you in your ups and downs. But at some point, it can end up with them getting too involved in your troubles. They will take up your troubles as their burden and get completely messed up in it. Unpleasant events will upset them so much that they will surrender to addictions to divert themselves from negative thoughts. They are oversensitive to an extent that even the slightest of remarks or jokes can end up making them drown in their own tears.”
I’ve been very drowny in tears recently. Many Kleenex have been dabbed at self-pitying eyes.
Speaking of self-pity, Pisceans are very good at it: “A Pisces who is a Pandora box for themselves can make up so many scenarios and fantasy worlds. These endless thoughts and ideas can make a Pisces go crazy if there isn’t any control over it. If they lose control over it, they can resort to self-pitying because in the pursuit of fulfilling their perfect thoughts they could disappoint as nobody is perfect. So to bring about a control over this ever flying mind of thoughts, they need someone who would be dominating to an extent to restrain them from disappointing themselves.”
Pooooooooor me has been completely obsessed with what-ifs and whhhhhhhhyyyyyys recently.
As I often told my gloomy, glass-half-empty husband: “Buck up!”
(I really shouldn’t have told my husband to buck up so often, maybe that’s one of the reasons he left … she overthinks …)
I know people who are facing far more difficult situations than mine – major health problems, redundancy, PND. I need to just get on with it.
Bloody wussy Pisceans. Why did I have to be one of THOSE. It would be much more fun to be a Fire sign like a Leo, swishing my mane around being self-confident and strong and independent.
Do you have any of the negative traits that are associated with your star sign? (Pisceans are also supposed to have problem feet … that’s MEEEEE too.)
