Pisces man personality traits and characteristics

Powerfully emotional, intuitive, creative and caring, the Pisces man is sensitive and often your most trusted friend. Often exceptionally attractive, his most endearing traits are his humility and love of romance.

Pisces men often sense and feel things which other less sensitive folk miss, sometimes making them seem more than a little psychic and mysterious. They often pick up on the subtle and unspoken, and are often skilled at subconsciously reading signals from others, such as body language.

This powerful intuition can be applied in many directions, for example he may be an excellent emotional healer, creative artist or astute business man.

Pisces empathy

Highly sympathetic, compassionate, self-sacrificing and unassuming, Pisces men are the most likely to absorb emotions from the environment around them, often becoming happy or depressed based on the mood of others.

Due to this they often prefer the company of optimists over pessimists and this creates it's own set of problems, as optimists are generally far less sensitive and compassionate, traits which are equally important in the partner of a Pisces man in their own ways.

Pisces idealism

Many Pisces men discover that the best route to finding inner peace is to give to others, and in many respects this is the most generous and selfless sign. They tend to give a piece of themselves to anyone they love, and often get a lot of satisfaction from helping others in general.

They often think with their heart and not their head, tending to dislike confrontation or hurting others in any way when avoidable, and often have difficulty saying no or leaving bad situations including relationships. They often prefer to 'go with the flow' when possible, as friction of any kind tends to drain their energy.

One side-effect of their combination of personality traits is sadly that Pisces is often taken advantage of and manipulated by the uncaring or bossy. This can sometimes create a vicious cycle of lowered self worth and increased need for approval, typically from the very person who is bad for them. One of their greatest life lessons is to learn to be a little selfish, in order to better choose who deserves their help and love.

An idealist at heart, it's common for Pisceans to be attracted to drama, art, creativity or fantasy in an attempt to escape from the gritty reality and frequent disappointments of life.

Due to the combination of the above factors Pisces men typically make attractive lovers to most other signs, though they are ultimately compatible with relatively few.

Pisces man questions

What are Pisces men like in bed?

In bed Pisces men are the ultimate romantics and make erotic lovers always favoring the subtle over the direct, and the unspoken over the blatant. Their fantasies can be an ongoing inspiration.

Are Pisces men kinky?

This is always a hard question to answer, as one person's idea of kinky can be very different to someone else's. Individuals also vary a lot, so this is a bad area to generalize in.

What's it like dating a Pisces man?

The original romantic, this is a man who needs a soulmate more than most. Gentle, caring, sentimental, romantic and selfless, he has a strong tendency to put his loved ones ahead of himself, and will rarely become angry or aggressive. He is loyal beyond question, and unlikely to be able to sleep with someone he doesn't love.

How loyal are Pisces men?

Pisces men are generally very loyal. As with all signs however they have certain situations where that may not be the case. For example if they are emotionally neglected for long enough they may seek a connection elsewhere. Typically they don't sleep with a partner they don't have a romantic connection with, though when single they will sometimes sleep with someone as a means to establish or speed up a connection, and can appear somewhat promiscuous due to this.

How to know if a Pisces man loves you?

Pisces men are more romantic than most and typically when they fall in love they fall hard. This can often make them somewhat shy initially and therefore hard to read. The clues are more subtle than for most other signs, and your own intuition will determine how many you notice. If you aren't the intuitive type then you may have to just ask! One common side effect of this is that Pisces often date more outgoing partners, as relationships with those who are equally shy and reserved often take a very long time to start. One of the most frustrating combinations for me (as a practicing relationship astrologer) is having two Pisces who both refuse to make the first move!

Online relationships and long distance relationships have unique challenges. One of these is that you get to see one side of someone very clearly: their personality. You don't however get to see anything about other factors such as sexual attraction. My compatibility reports address this by scoring all factors alongside each other so you can see the whole picture, with any strong or weak areas highlighted. To explore this further please see my article on online relationships.

Do Pisces men cheat?

Generally they don't. But, this is the type of generic question that often gets asked or answered whenever astrology is discussed. Individual experiences are then quoted back and forth as proof that Pisces men do or don't. Individuals get offended by general statements that don't apply to them, and everything goes downhill fast. The diagram below shows the problem here:


Pisces man personality

Astrology can predict someone's personality very accurately when the placement of all their planets is calculated. In that situation we can also predict their most likely behavior.

From just someone's sun sign however we can only predict some aspects of their personality and it's too much of a leap to try and predict behavior from just those. Astrology has fairly precise limits. This is an example of an area where sun signs are just too broad and clumsy to give an answer. A real compatibility reading is required to answer the question.

How to make a Pisces man fall in love with you?

Please see the article on seduction and astrology for more information on this.

No! This article is based only on sun signs. In order to provide a lot of people with information those are a convenient and fast way to generalize, but far from conclusive at this broad level. There are many other planet placements which all affect someone's personality.

To get a complete picture of someone through astrology we need to take all those other planets and their interactions into account. To do this we need to create and interpret their unique natal chart. For information on what's involved in this and the opportunity to obtain one for yourself and your partner please see the compatibility readings page.
