Hey girl, what's your sign?

  I always  used to think astrology was a bunch of b.s. and that it had not merit. I don't believe too much in horoscopes themselves because I find them general and relative to any situation but what I do find interesting are the star signs and how they describe the persons attributes born within that time period. I find mine to be hauntingly accurate, almost down to a T. What if the way the stars and planets align within the set time periods of the year and the energy they put out have an effect on that person. Maybe, our inner energy is pulled and shaped by the planets and stars around us and the way they interact with each other. They say Pisces is ruled by Neptune and Jupiter, perhaps the way these two planets pulled and orbited at the time of my birth or the Pisces birth, helped shape some of my inner characteristics or at least the way my energy flows. It can't just be a coincidence that most people are bizarrely explained by their star sign.
Let me break it down. This description is thanks to astrology.com, I removed a few redundant sentences so that you weren't reading a novel, but what is left, I think is very important in explaining a lot of my tendencies.

Pisces is the twelfth sign of the zodiac. These folks are selfless, spiritual and very focused on their inner journey. They also place great weight on what they are feeling. Yes, feelings define Pisces, and it's not uncommon for them to feel their own burdens (and joys) as well as those of others.

For a long time, I used to think or felt like I had to portray that I was very unemotional person. I felt like it was weak to be emotional but I don't know if it is the fact that I tried to block it out when I was younger, that it now has become so strong, or because I'm getting older so I'm feeling more emotional or if that's the way I always was.The fact remains that I am an extremely emotional person. Whenever I'm involved in an argument or someones sad, I immediately feel bad either about myself or for them and it's very hard for me to focus when I feel like an energy is off. Unfortunately this is bang on and I'm working on  being a little more selfish about my feelings and needs because at times others feelings can completely consume me.

The intuition of the Pisces-born is highly evolved. Many people associate Pisces with dreams and secrets, and it's a fair association, since those born under this sign feel comfortable in an illusory world.
Pisces are fluid and easy-going. Pisces alternate between reality and non-reality in keeping with their introspective natures; their voyage between consciousness and an unconscious dream state says much about their intuitive, almost psychic natures.

Intuition, I wouldn't say I have intuition but from the earliest of ages I could always feel energy so maybe call that intuition? I remember being a child and talking to the wind, thinking it was my friend (I'll get into that in a later blog lol) but again with the emotional nature of a Pisces, I think our emotions are guided by "intuition" or the feeling and guidance of energies.
I 100% float in between reality and dream world, it doesn't take much for me to get lost in a thought or path of thinking. I can have one thing happen to me and I will think out a whole life for that thought from beginning to end. Like, let's say if I sold something for $100, all of a sudden I will create a reality in my head where the $100 has decreased some debt and then I will think about what else I can sell and for how much and how long it will take and voilà I'm out of debt. The thought will take a life on it's own but more often then not I am brought back to reality by disappointment and let down of expectations.

Pisces are compassionate, charitable and will quickly put the needs of others ahead of their own. It's this kind of self-sacrifice that keeps these folks going. The flip side to their giving natures is that the oft-timid Fish are likely to be taken advantage of by less well-meaning souls.
Those born under this sign are spiritually oriented and charitable. They are compassionate, easily feeling another's pain. At times, however, Pisceans can have difficulty distinguishing fact from fantasy; they tend to get caught up in their dreams and views of how things should be. Pisces who fear that their pleas aren't being heard tend to lapse into melancholy and, worse, the kind of pessimism that leads to procrastination and lethargy. At times like this, Pisces would be wise to take time for themselves, the better to find their center once again.

I tend to always put others ahead of myself because I like to see people happy, I don't like disappointing people or see them disappointed so I will do everything in my power to bring the balance of energy back to the status quo. My problem is that I get very caught up in my thoughts of how things should be or why they can't be that way. I am working on being open minded but it is very easy for me to think my way out of a situation by giving it a happy ending but your happy ending that you make up for a problem will NEVER come to fruition. It will never end the way you have envisioned, it will either be better or worse, more likely worse because we tend to give more hope to situations then they have merit for but in the end it's about expectations and we can't have a thought be 100% right in our expectations. There will always be a let down.
Because Pisces are so emotional, I tend to get quite somber if I do something nice for someone and they don't say thank you or they don't appreciate the kind act. I don't do things for reward but without the acknowledgement it's easy for me to feel like I'm being taken advantage of and that highly effects my mood and energy. I all of a sudden feel bad abut myself. Whenever I get into that state I need a bit, whether it be an few minutes or a few days to find myself again. To find my happiness and positivity once again.

The Element associated with Pisces is Water. Those born under this sign easily relate to the emotional and unpredictable nature of this liquid gold. Pisces feel a great deal, and they also feel misunderstood much of the time. They're not quite pushovers, but they're certainly sensitive. Yes, they could cry you a river if the circumstances were right. Even so, they revel in their compassionate and imaginative natures and love to cater to others. Hopefully, any kindness will be reciprocated, because the Fish can certainly turn blue if they're not. Pisces are generally gentle, easy-going folk, who are on the shy and reticent side.
The great strength of the Pisces-born is their compassionate and charitable nature. These folks love to help others and do so in the most imaginative of ways. It's their feeling sensibility that wins people over.

I can be an emotional roller coaster at times, especially when I don't understand a situation or a persons attitude. This is where communication is key. We should always aim to understand one another, even if it is a view point that we can't relate to. Understanding takes away the unnecessary negativity and conflict but unfortunately most people who understand don't like the reality of the situations,
I shy away from confrontation and uncomfortable situations because of what it does to my personal energy and will do almost everything in my power to diffuse a tense situations, because I feel no need for those kind of reactions and at times will appease until the other party has calmed down. If you try speaking rationally with a person who is acting irrationally, you will escalate the situation and close the doors to understanding as well. I know when to use my easy going and passive side, not as a weakness but as a tool to give myself and others understating.

My goal in life is to be a compassionate and understanding person. To feel for others when I cannot understand and to give patience to those who require it. It's incredible how clear you can think in times of calmness but how easily that is torn apart in moments of frustration.
I like my star sign. I wouldn't want to be another way. At times, I may not be able to handle the ups and downs of my current but at least I'm riding the waves. I can look back and see where my struggles were along the stream and I can appreciate the journey it takes to get to those calm waters. I accept that this is the nature at water and hope that I can gain the tools to go with the current instead of fight it.

Are you like your star sign?
