Anyone with significant points in the sign of the Fishes is gentle, sensitive, deep, understanding, and has a very tolerant, non-judgmental approach towards life. A person with Pisces Rising has an ever-shifting and changeable outlook, approaching life with an instinctive sense of unity and a compassionate concern for all human emotional experiences. The person is very kind-hearted and cannot tolerate seeing any other creature suffer. As a child, the type may have got quite upset whenever others were hurt physically or emotionally. Unable to take definite action, reluctant to define personal boundaries, and being deliberately evasive and hard to figure out, there’s a tendency to be somewhat passive and a willingness to let things resolve or work themselves out in their own way. With the Piscean energy, there is a flexible personality shown and willingness to adapt to changing circumstances and demands.
The life urge is to uncover the transpersonal within the personal. Neptune’s rulership gives rise to an orientation that dissolves any set of rigid limitations and does away with the lines defining any given set of circumstances. When highly developed, this can be a gift of seeing into the potential of another person, looking beyond the restrictions of the projected personality…It may also represent the talent to identify and bring forth the spiritual truth from the most common of life’s circumstances. Yet the reverse may also be true: the individual with Neptune as the chart ruler may be unable to access the practical realities of any situation, placing there instead an illusory, glamorous projection of false hopes and unfulfilled aspirations.

All of the water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces) enable us to stay in contact with our deepest selves. The world of the imagination is much more real a place to escape to when the world becomes too harsh. Pisces has a highly emotional nature, with a quiet, shy personality. Though the person may be as intelligent as anybody else, it is difficult to have a logical approach toward life. The feelings, intuition, and heart lead the type forwards.
Pisces Rising is magically compelling and magnetic and has a definite sensitivity to the environment. The type is not always the most comfortable in social situations and tends to quickly adapt. The defenses may not be strong enough to handle other people’s ‘energy, as this is a leaky area that can indicate a flood of feelings passing through the barrier and overwhelming them. Also, they may erect boundaries by the use of cigarettes, alcohol, disappearing and even appearing mystifying.
