You cannot intellectually rationalize your religious beliefs because they exist outside of the realm of logic. You wish you could find a way to balance whats in your heart with whats in your head now. To make matters worse, your current spiritual inclinations may not be fully accepted by your church or community. Paradoxically, the divergent perspectives dont clash as much as you think. Author Matshona Dhliwayo wrote, Love is your religion; the whole world is your temple.
Pisces On the light side:
Compassionate and kind; Selfless and unworldly; Intuitive and sympathetic
Pisces On the dark side:
Escapist and idealistic; Secretive and vague; Weak-willed and easily led
Solitude to dream in; Mystery in all its guises; Anything discarded to stay discarded; The ridiculous; like to get 'lost'
the obvious; being criticized; feeling all at sea about something; know-it-alls; pedantry
With this combination you will find the same vices and values. There is also much understanding and sympathy for each other, which in turn makes getting along well together a snap. Both have the same basic interests such as home and possessions. In each other they find the refinement and delicacy that both desire when it comes to love. This is a great union.
The free and light hearted Sagittarian may find Pisces a much too heavy load to carry. These two signs are great when speaking of friendships but in marriage Pisces is far too confining for the easy going Sagittarius. If boundaries can be set early on in the relationship and each try to understand the others traits, and tendencies, be them good and bad, it just might be the common ground that will allow this union to work. But, be aware that this will not come with ease.
Probably the most romantic sign of the zodiac. They are caring and sensitive and when in love they are filled with aspirations. Most are deeply sensitive and soft hearted. Although high strung they are all too happy to lose themselves in their relationships
Most Pisceans view their loved ones through rose colored glasses, and refuse to admit that their idealized mate is no more than human. Romance allows then to escape into a dream like world, but it's only in their imagination that they fantasize about being unfaithful as they really want nothing more than a spiritual life with their partner.
This sign is a sentimental one, and it tends to be swayed by emotions. Hurtful relationships often leave them scarred and their romantic ideals shattered. Pisceans are easy to get along with but are subject to moody periods which in turn makes them hard to understand. Their variety of moods may make married life hard for them.
In the emotional area, they are inwardly full of affection and easy to get along with but they produce a series of contradictions. One being that while they have a strong desire for romance, they will suddenly throw on the brakes for no apparent reason.
Pisces being gentle and sentimental may find themselves often deeply hurt by some of the more fiery signs. Pisceans will often become willing victims in a destructive relationship without even realizing it.
Pisces seems to be one of the oldest constellations in the sky. The ancient Syrians saw this region as representing two fishes bound by a cord, one fleeing toward the western horizon and one fleeing northward. This peculiar image was adopted by the Egyptians, who saw the fish as swimming from Set, the evil brother of Osiris. The Greeks adapted the story again - for them, one fish was Aphrodite, the other her son Eros, and both were escaping the giant Typhoon. The constellation Pisces represents the twelfth zodiac sign. According to Greek mythology, Pisces commemorates the fishes that rescued the Goddess Aphrodite and her son Eros after they jumped into the river to get away from the giant typhon. The fishes were rewarded with a place in the heavens. Their tails were tied together so they would always be together.
Despite its fame, its size, and its prominence as a zodiacal constellation, the stars of Pisces are largely disappointing. Alpha Piscium is a star otherwise known as Alrisha, 'the Cord', which represents the point where the two fishes' cords meet.
Alrisha is the not the brightest of Pisces' stars, though: that honor goes to Gamma Piscium, which lies in the westward 'fish'. This is an irregular hexagon of stars which, though dim, are recognizable by their characteristic shape. The northern fish is much less well defined, being a faint straggle of stars in the direction of Andromeda. The brightest orb in Pisces is the planet Jupiter. The 'cricket' (most famous part of Pisces) brightest star is Gamma Piscium. Down and to the left of Gamma is the most famed star, Piscium. Omega is found to the left and upward toward Andromeda.
Imaginative and sensitive Compassionate and kind Selfless and unworldly Intuitive and sympathetic. Pisces tend to be artistic by nature, they are typically very kind and sympathetic toward others. They seem to be very intuitive, adjust to circumstances and are receptive to new thinking.
Escapist and idealistic Secretive and vague Weak-willed and easily led. Pisces may tend to be impractical, somewhat vague and careless. They can be spiteful, greedy and downright immoral. Occasionally they can appear confused and weak of will allowing them to be easily led astray.
The very imaginative and sensitive Pisces zodiac sign will be among the very best artists and story tellers there are. They can feel in depths and levels that us ordinary mortals can only imagine.
They are very loving people and are a bit more sensitive then the other zodiac signs. Be careful when dealing with the Pisces you are in love with, because absent minded comments can sometimes cut them deep.
A Pisces person will be one of the first to help you when you are down. They are charitable and honest, willing to do anything for their fellow man. They hate suffering and you will find them active in charities and other activities that help those in need.
The Pisces person seems to display two very different personalities.
The first is one of being very charming and pleasant to be in contact with. The other also has these characteristics, but occasionally appears very reserved or even bashful and almost seems devoid of personality.
In order to be successful the latter Pisces must put an extraordinary effort to overcome being timid and sensitive and work on presenting confident, determined and courageous.
Emotionally, Pisces are typically kind, generous and patient and may be very sensitive to what others have to say. Although, sensitive, Pisces need to avoid anger and quick temperedness to avoid upsetting the nervous system.
The Piscean, being acutely sensitive, may tend to display the symptoms of those they may be tending. They are often caught up in the moment and need to reflect on what is real versus fiction.
Pisceans must beware of addictions that may cause them to withdraw from reality by drinking or using drugs to escape things that trouble them.
Some of the ailments which plague Pisceans are foot related such as bunions, bone spurs and heal bruising/pain. Forgetfulness can also be a bane of the Piscean, even to the point of resembling some forms of insanity. Pisceans need to be keenly aware to keep reality in perspective and not allow an overdose of fiction to overwhelm them.
They possess a tendency to be able to grasp numerous details of any scenario that others are prone to miss. They tend to learn very easily and for the most part, retain it. Perception and the ability to recall stored knowledge give Pisceans a leg up on excelling when their gifts are applied in a positive manner.
Their desire to learn and experience new things leads them to travel as this affords real relaxation and removes them from day to day monotony. Many shorter trips tend to be more beneficial then infrequent more extensive ones. Use travel and learning to keep things in perspective.

Pisces, Pisceans possess a gentle, patient, malleable nature. They have many generous qualities and are friendly, good natured, kind and compassionate, sensitive to the feelings of those around them, and
respond with the utmost sympathy and tact to any suffering they encounter. They are deservedly popular with all kinds of people, partly because their easygoing, affectionate, submissive natures offer no threat or challenge to stronger and more exuberant characters. They accept the people around them and the circumstances in which they find themselves rather than trying to adapt them to suit themselves, and they patiently wait for problems to sort themselves out rather than take the initiative in solving them. They are more readily concerned with the problems of others than with their own. Their natures tend to be too otherworldly for the practical purposes of living in this world as it is. They sometimes exist emotionally rather than rationally, instinctively more than intellectually (depending on how they are aspected). They long to be recognized as greatly creative. They also dislike disciple and confinement. The nine-to-five life is not for them. Any rebellion they make against convention is personal, however, as they often times do not have the energy or motivation to battle against the Establishment.
Pisceans tend to withdraw into a dream world where their qualities can bring mental satisfaction and sometimes, fame and financial reward for they are extremely gifted artistically. They are also versatile and intuitive, have quick understanding, observe and listen well, and are receptive to new ideas and atmospheres. All these factors can combine to produce remarkable creativity in literature, music and art. They may count among their gifts mediumistic qualities which can give them a feeling that their best work comes from outside themselves, "Whispered beyond the misted curtains, screening this world from that." Even when they cannot express themselves creatively they have a greater than average instinct for, and love of, beauty in art and nature, a catlike appreciation of luxury and pleasure, and a yearning for new sensations and travel to remote, exotic places.
They are never egotistical in their personal relationships and give more than they ask from their friends. They are sexually delicate, in the extreme almost asexual, and most Pisceans would want a relationship in which the partner's mind and spirit rather than the body resonated with their own. Unfortunately they can be easily misled by a lover who courts them delicately and in marriage makes them unhappy by a coarser sexuality than they expected. They are nevertheless intensely loyal and home-loving and will remain faithful.
In their employment they are better working either by themselves or in subordinate positions. Their talents are individual in a commercial business or similar undertaking. They would be afraid to manage more than a small department, worrying always that they would fail in a crisis. They can make fair secretaries and bookkeepers.
Their sympathy equips them for work in charities catering for the needy, as nurses looking after the sick and as veterinary surgeons caring for animals. As librarians or astronomers they can satisfy their mental wanderlust, and their fondness for "faraway places with strange-sounding names" may turn them into sailors or travellers. Many architects and lawyers are Pisceans, and when the creative abilities are combined with gifts of imitation and the ability to enter into the feelings of others, Pisceans find their fulfillment on the stage. Their psychic and spiritual qualities can lead them into careers in the church or as mediums and mystics. They may find an outlet for their creativity as caterers, and are said to make good detectives because they can imagine themselves in the place of criminals and understand how their minds would work. In technical occupations they are well employed in dealing with anaesthetics, fluids, gases and plastics. Because of their lively versatility and inability to concentrate overmuch on any one project, Pisceans often simultaneously follow more than one occupation. Possible Health Concerns... Pisces governs the feet, liver and lymphatics, and its subjects can be threatened by anaemia, boils, ulcers and other skin diseases, especially inflammation of the eyelids, gout, inflammation, heavy periods and foot disorders and lameness.
PROBLEMS THAT MAY ARISE FOR YOU, AND THEIR SOLUTIONS
As with all sun signs, we all have unique traits to our personalities. When these traits are suppressed, or unrealized, problems will arise. However, with astrology we can examine the problem and assess the proper solution based on the sun sign characteristics. As a pisces you may see things below that really strike home. Try the solution, you most likely will be amazed at the results. If you find yourself on the receiving end of the negatives below, it is because you are failing to express the positive.
Problem: You find yourself being walked on or over in all manner of ways.
Solution: Try to reorient your thinking and assert yourself in a quiet, reserved manner that is more impressive than blustering.
Problem: Never seeming to have enough money to round out the week with much less the month even though your salary is on a par with everyone else'.
Solution: You are prone to act as if you have more than you actually do and tend to spend that which you do not have or need for other things. Forego some of the parties and make a strict budget to put yourself on. Problem: A strong sense of despair not shared by family and friends, thus leaving you with that all alone feeling.
Solution: You must come out of yourself and open up to those around you, you have the power to inspire others making you an important part of the human race; take your rightful place.
Problem: Causing others to be quarrelsome or to walk out on you all together.
Solution: The upstream fish may be pushing too hard for someone to meet your ideals and could wind up pushing people right out of your life. Try lightning up.
