“A psychologist walked around a room while teaching stress management to an audience. As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected they’d be asked the “half empty or half full” question. Instead, with a smile on her face she inquired, “How heavy is this glass of water?” The answers called out ranged from 8oz to 20 oz. She replied, “The absolute weight doesn’t matter. It depends on how long I hold it. If i hold it for a minute, its not a problem. If i hold it for an hour, i’ll have an ache in my arm. If i hold it for a day, my arm will feel numb and paralyzed. In each case, the weight of the glass doesn’t change, but the longer i hold it, the heavier it becomes.” She continued, “The stress and worries in life are like that glass of water. Think about them for a while and nothing happens. Think about them for a big longer and they begin to hurt. And if you think about them all day long, you will feel paralyzed - incapable of doing anything.” Always remember to put the glass down.”—
“Pisces is always swimming around looking for structure. So give them rules. Give them instructions. Tell them what you expect of them and they’ll be relieved. Left to their own devices, they’re off dreaming, creating and imagining. Pisces are great designers because they’ve got the best imaginations and they’re extremely creative. But they also like things simple, minimalist. They have very specific tastes—they know exactly what they like and don’t like. When they have these boundaries they feel great.
In their own little world, they can close their eyes and just dream. Where it’s quiet, where the atmosphere is lovely, where they can space out. They prefer being alone because they feel different, like they don’t belong. So they tend to be a little secretive. And they try so hard to act normal. They really do give it their best shot, but it’s confusing because Pisces need to know what people want from them. They’re also afraid that people will think they’re weird and won’t like them.
But here’s the thing about Pisces: deep down they’re real romantics, even though they prefer their own private fish bowl and they don’t like it being disrupted that much. They just love that whole idea of connectedness, that merging with another. They could probably be with anybody. But relationships aren’t easy when you’re a fish—you want to be close to someone and you like the whole sensual thing, but you don’t want someone around too much because it can become irritating and maddening. And fish don’t like being mad. They get mad at themselves for getting mad.
They don’t like to be stuck in something for too long either. They’re fish, right? They just want to keep swimming. And dreaming. You want to know how to really make Pisces happy? Just be with them and don’t talk. Just let them be their funny weird selves and don’t talk. They’ll love you forever.”—
The last sun sign, and the last water sign, it’s often the case that people born under the sun sign Pisces are the every-man and every-woman of the Zodiac. There is a little bit of everyone in their personality and this is why they can so easily relate to and understand others.
“The gods envy us. They envy us because we’re mortal, because any moment may be our last. Everything is more beautiful because we’re doomed. You will never be lovelier than you are now. We will never be here again.”—
