welcome to pisces – my most favorite zodiac sign! (march 14th, if you want to mark your calendar & if your calendar isn’t handy, don’t worry – there will be more reminders )
each morning before i get into the shower, i put an inspirational, motivational or otherwise interesting video on which i listen to while i’m getting ready. this morning i chose a lilou interview. i love lilou ( apparently 19 million other people love lilou too – 19 million – that’s a lot of views – yay for lilou!) if you’re not familiar with lilou, she travels the world and interviews new-agey inspirational peeps like wayne dyer, ram dass, neale walsh, gary zukav, deepak chopra and many, many more incredible individuals. today i clicked on an interview she had with debra silverman. i hadn’t heard of debra before. i discovered debra is a humorous astrologer and psychologist with a lot of interesting things to say and after the video of debra & lilou i checked out debra silverman’s website.
on her site she offers short, very funny, video characterizations of each of the different zodiac signs. mine cracked me up – because 95 % of what she says about pisces is exactly me. if you’re reading this and have not met me in person, watch this video if you care to know what i’m like. if you do know me, i would love to hear your comments!!! then check out debra’s site for information on your sign!
Pisces is always swimming around looking for structure. So give them rules. Give them instructions. Tell them what you expect of them and they’ll be relieved. Left to their own devices, they’re off dreaming, creating and imagining. Pisces are great designers because they’ve got the best imaginations and they’re extremely creative. But they also like things simple, minimalist. They have very specific tastes—they know exactly what they like and don’t like. When they have these boundaries they feel great.
In their own little world, they can close their eyes and just dream. Where it’s quiet, where the atmosphere is lovely, where they can space out. They prefer being alone because they feel different, like they don’t belong. So they tend to be a little secretive. And they try so hard to act normal. They really do give it their best shot, but it’s confusing because Pisces need to know what people want from them. They’re also afraid that people will think they’re weird and won’t like them.
But here’s the thing about Pisces: deep down they’re real romantics, even though they prefer their own private fish bowl and they don’t like it being disrupted that much. They just love that whole idea of connectedness, that merging with another. They could probably be with anybody. But relationships aren’t easy when you’re a fish—you want to be close to someone and you like the whole sensual thing, but you don’t want someone around too much because it can become irritating and maddening. And fish don’t like being mad. They get mad at themselves for getting mad.
They don’t like to be stuck in something for too long either. They’re fish, right? They just want to keep swimming. And dreaming. You want to know how to really make Pisces happy? Just be with them and don’t talk. Just let them be their funny weird selves and don’t talk. They’ll love you forever.”
