For example, a Pisces will experience a death in the family but not tell anyone at work because their colleagues are dealing with their own hardships. Pisces wants slack after sharing their deep, dark trauma, but take offense if someone else does the same. Some Pisces will take that one step further and decide never to open up on their own again, burying their trauma and emotions until another major screw-up forces it out of them.

Eventually, everyone in work conversations with Pisces starts to roll their eyes, and the boss cuts Pisces off to intimate that what the company actually needs is for some employees to stop blowing off internal meetings, come to work on time, and meet those pesky deadlines. In love, Pisces is prone to embodying the classic case of falling more in love with the idea of a person than the reality of them.

There are plenty of jerks in the world who are more into head games than true affection—unfortunately, a Pisces will entertain them all on their quest to find real love. Pisces is a water sign, represented by two fish swimming in opposite directions.
Water is an element that symbolizes emotions, and Pisces can feel the emotional tides in a room better than anyone else. When it comes to relationships—romantic or otherwise—Pisces must try harder to see past their fantasies to evaluate their realities.
