Pisces most common traits are shy, understanding, romantic, creative, dreamers, escapists, unrealistic, and even impractical. They are symbolized by two fish swimming in opposite directions because often Pisceans feel like they are being pulled in different ways, making it hard to make decisions. Pisces are faced with the difficult task of straddling this divide – between the human and the divine. More than any other sign, perhaps, Pisces experiences normal human life as limited, for it excludes so much that can make life more complete. Yet, even Pisceans have to live as human beings in a world full of limitations. Coming to terms with living in the real world for the daydreaming Pisces can be an immense problem.
