    Pisces in Relationship

    Pisces ( Feb 19 - Mar 20 )
    Pisces in Relationship :

    Pisceans exhibit an easygoing, go-with-the-flow quality, which is a boon to relationships. These folks would definitely rather make love than war, the better to stay in their sybaritic, dreamlike state. The Fish's relationship with their lover is characterized by imagination, sensitivity and great emotions, and they'll sometimes wear their heart on their sleeve. Because of this, a lover who can protect them and make them feel safe (as opposed to the dreaded vulnerability) is ideal. Giving is also paramount in the Pisces mind, yet sometimes those born under this sign run the risk of giving too much, thanks to their selfless nature. The appropriate push-pull, or melding of the yin and the yang, will mean beautiful music for the Fish and their well-matched lover. The ideal Pisces soul mate is more grounded than they are but still loves to play.
