Pisces in Love

Chance is always powerful. Let your hook be always cast; in the pool where you least expect it, there will be a fish. –Ovid Roman poet Ovid, was a fantastic wordsmith but also an excellent example of the Piscean in love. Some academics struggle with the way he manages to portray himself by turns as “a faithful lover, a promiscuous Casanova, the world’s greatest stud, and an impotent neurotic.”

But this extreme type of mood swing in self-perception is really quite normal in a Fish Person. Pisces people are traditionally lauded as being into universal love. This can mean (a) they are disgustingly indiscriminate with the sexual ethics of a cane toad or, (b) capable of imbuing the most fleeting of friendships with spiritual light. Or both.

The classic Piscean is always on the lookout for, as Mills ft Boon authors put it, “delicate flames springing to life inside their stomach.”

They are quite capable of making a shocking scene just because their lover refuses to wear the duck suit to bed. They are very good at murmuring “hold me” to their partner to get out of an awkward confrontation.

If they are ultra-manipulative, it is not particularly surprising. Most Pisceans have been swotting up for their romantic life since they were about 12. They’ve studied everything from The Joy of Sex and bodice ripper books to the philosophies of Machiavelli and Edward Albee’s play Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

Edward Albee was a Pisces so he knew what he was on about when he wrote a scene. Pisceans deeply believe in love. By the time they find it they have usually sown enough wild oats to feed the Third World. They will thus be perfectly happy to leave the hurly burly of the chaise longue for the deep, deep peace of the double bed. Once they have a soul mate, a Pisces is forever an ultra-date.

The Piscean needs to find someone strong enough to keep them from the slutting around that they call mild flirting and yet gentle enough to respect the Piscean genius.

Their partner should bear in mind that a Pisces person who is not paid enough strict attention will start thinking about doing an Anais Nin, that is, having “artistically inspirational” extramarital dalliances.
