Dreamer, mystical, tender, passive, emotional, loving, devoted, creative, easy-going, sensitive, instinctive, affectionate, altruistic. Because they can be so intuitive and empathetic, they tend to think that other people know what they are thinking without being told. They are the most introverted of all the signs and they enjoy periods of self-reflection due to their enjoyment of understanding human nature. The greatest strength of Pisces is their desire to understand themselves and others.
The greatest weakness of Pisces is that they are too trusting of others. Alexander King explains that a Pisces will often miss the forest for the trees when speaking to another person, reading their emotions but not their motivations. Pisces are therefore likely to get caught up in at least one scam or abuse of their trust in their lifetime.
Pisces is also considered one of the most mystical and spiritual signs. In personal relationships Pisces are idealistic, intensely romantic and will be very sensitive to their partner’s feelings but may not be realistic in their choice of partner and suffer intensely when things go wrong.
On the other hand, they can also be idealistic, secretive, vague, weak-willed, easily led, needy, lazy, manipulative, confused, depressed, irresponsible, duplicitous, indecisive.
Signature oil: Melissa
The soothing healing and comforting nature of melissa reflects the compassionate nature of Pisces.
When Pisceans seek help with aromatherapy, it will often be associated with pain or damage to the feet, or a foot infection such as athlete’s foot. They respond well to reflexology. Pisces also relates to the lymphatic system and fluid retention can be a problem. Irecommend lymphatic drainage massage with essential oils such as rosemary and geranium, I would add fennel seed and cypress.
Pisces will often enjoy a massage more as an expression of your caring than the physical comfort of benefits of the massage. They also love baths.
