Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac, an old soul who has soaked up the qualities of the preceding signs and as a result lacks a feeling of separateness. The typical Piscean feels oneness with everything and everyone, having a porous, nebulous nature, he soaks in atmospheres and feelings surrounding him. Like the fish, Pisceans live in a fluid world, never knowing whether the tides will carry them upstream or downstream. Pisceans have a love of music, art and mysticism and many excel within these fields due to their sensitive, imaginative, creative nature. The urge for escapism is strong in a Piscean and if they manage to swim upstream they can channel their energies into creative pursuits such as music or acting. However, some will choose alcohol or drugs as a way softening the harsh edge of reality.
