Happy Birthday, Pisces! You’re a renaissance Pisces with endless curiosity, a bold sense of adventure, and enjoy a lifelong passion for the arts. Any form of skillful physical expression from Olympic athletic competition to an enchanting pas de deux interests you. You’re artistically sensitive one moment and fearless the next. Cautious timid souls prefer to play it safe and hear about your personal and professional thrill rides. You’re driven to viscerally experience each hair-raising moment, often without a net. It’s possible that you’ll eventually look back on past activities or relationships and count your blessings that you managed to survive unscathed. You’re very physical. It’s never quite enough to explore things verbally; you need to immerse yourself in a full body experience to understand the essence of something. In order to know something, you need to FEEL it. Many of you are standouts in your chosen fields – often the first to achieve. You reliably set new standards for your successors to shoot for. Your name may be synonymous with excellence, uniqueness, and innovation. Your dedication to a practical application of beauty, history, and spiritual awareness gives you depth and complexity that sometimes surprises others. Because your position or appearance may distract from your other gifts, people are frequently amazed and impressed by your prowess. Charismatic, magnetic, and often uncompromising, you are quite a handful. Yes, you can be good - you can even be sacrificial. But when you’re in the mood to shake all the apples from a tree, you do so with gusto. People who think they know you well may have a number of surprises in store. Your reputation at work may be very different than your rep at home. Social acquaintances are likely to see yet another side. Part of this can be attributed to the fact that Pisces is a dual sign that reflects its environment and absorbs the thoughts and feelings of its surroundings. Dual signs may feel “of two minds” about many things, and change their minds as new moods and information develop. The other factors include your desire to be free, to succeed, and to be different. In some circles, you may be characterized as being serene and cooperative, but be viewed as an iconoclastic rabble-rouser in others. Both sides of your dual nature need expression, packing a lot of energy, power, and controversy into your attractive physical frame. Your eyes have a romantic, hypnotic quality. Some people melt under the spell your eyes seem to cast. You can have a devastatingly potent impact on people who may never fully understand you, but want you all the same. At times, you’re bratty - and do everything in your power to knock holes in others’ comfort zones. You may blame your behavior on medicine, alcohol, or even a root canal, but an urge to upset the applecart is part of your character. You are humanity’s little wake-up call, making sure that certain things don’t get swept under the rug. Much of the time, you work undercover, quietly keeping the embers of change white hot and ready to forge social consciousness. But you also delight in exposing a carefully wrought PR campaign that offends your sense of right and wrong. Because you’re an original, you may feel somewhat like an outsider, no matter how popular, successful or beloved you are. Your appearance sets you apart, and is usually appealing. But your unique attitude and views put you in a separate universe. Ironically, a large segment of your family and friends may never recognize how outstanding and peerless your theories and talents are. Be very, very cautious with medicines, alcohol, and addictive behavior. You could easily fall into the sticky clutches of compulsion and have a horrendous time getting your personal freedom back. You never give up your liberty without a fight. Many of you would rather be alone than be held hostage in a smothering relationship or strict social organization. You need to be free to grow, experiment, learn, and fall flat on your face whenever necessary. Living under the magnifying glass of the media may feel grossly uncomfortable for you. When it comes down to it, no amount of fame or fortune can bring the satisfaction that total freedom does. Since you learn through experience, you may achieve success, fame, and all the trappings before you realize how limiting it can be. You will always stand out as a refined rebel. You won't shout and pound the walls, but will deliberately appear slightly off center. This is a typical Piscean guerilla tactic that is very effective. Without making a fuss, you simply arrive at a formal affair wearing something that clearly sets you apart. Or you may bring a controversial companion. Don't box yourself in with so-called accouterments of success and stability. You suffocate in a sea of possessions, assistants, and public appearances. You may periodically chuck it all and take a year off to learn a new language or explore religious history. You have no difficulty being alone and may find it deliciously comforting. Your ability to influence others is really quite remarkable and can be used to perform great good.
