Things to Look out for with Pisces
The Pisces is so hypersensitive that when people invariably let them down, they can become extremely emotionally reactive. The Pisces can also be temperamental and easy to provoke. Reactions can be volatile, and this can overwhelm those around them – especially if the reaction relates to a necessary change. The enormity of the reaction can be draining for the Piscean and they may fall into depression and become bitter and fixated on problems, compromise their good judgement and unable to see solutions, which compounds problems. Alternatively, if they are living quite destructively they might lose themselves into a world of fantasy and escapism, rather than addressing their problems. This escapism is often associated with overindulging (often alcohol) as a means to ‘quiet their brains’ and numb their emotions. Romantic partners should be aware that the Pisces can seem a little ‘wishy washy’ at times, or feel mislead because the Piscean can become lost within their own emotions. Be aware that if you break the Piscean heart, and they feel betrayed they will lose sense of reality and seek pleasure elsewhere.
