Pisces woman personality traits & characteristics
Often described as the zodiacs sexiest women, Pisces are ultra-feminine and often highly attractive. Pisces is the dreamer of the zodiac; mysterious, spiritual, imaginative and idealistic.
Pisces women often sense and feel things which other less sensitive folk miss, sometimes making them seem more than a little psychic and mysterious at times. 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 she may be an excellent emotional healer, a creative artist or an astute business woman.
Highly sympathetic, compassionate, self-sacrificing and unassuming, Pisces women 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 woman in their own ways.
Many Pisces 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 care for, and often get a lot of satisfaction from helping others in general.
They think with their heart and not their head, tending to dislike confrontation or hurting others in any way, and often have difficulty saying no or leaving bad situations or relationships. They tend to always ‘go with the flow’ and friction of any kind drains their energy.
One side-effect of their combination of personality traits is sadly that Pisces is easily 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 periodic disappointments of life.
Due to the combination of the above factors Pisces typically make attractive lovers to most other signs, though they are compatible with relatively few.
As a full time relationship astrologer I get a lot of emails from people of all signs. Pisces women hold the record for the longest email question I have received, which was over 27 pages (and no, I didn't send a one word answer, though it was tempting!)
Pisces woman questions
What are Pisces women like in bed?
The ultimate romantics, Pisces 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 women 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. All things being equal though, Pisces women are slightly less likely to be kinky than other signs.
What's it like dating a Pisces woman?
The original romantic, this is a woman who needs a soulmate more than most. Gentle, caring, sentimental, romantic and selfless, she has a strong tendency to put loved ones ahead of herself, and will rarely become angry or aggressive.
How loyal are Pisces women?
Pisces women 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 initially appear somewhat promiscuous due to this.
How to know if a Pisces woman loves you?
Pisces women 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!

How to understand your Pisces woman
Your Pisces will have her own unique personality traits. This article talks about sun signs, however there are many other factors. For example her moon sign determines her emotional personality which affects whether she is sensitive, romantic, loyal etc.
Pisces generally benefit from a strong partner, as long as that person is caring, optimistic, uplifting and protective. They also do well with sensitive and caring partners.
Do Pisces women cheat?
Generally they don't. But, this is the type of question that often gets asked or answered whenever astrology is discussed. Individual experiences are then quoted back and forth as proof that Pisces women do or don't. Individuals get offended by general statements that don't apply to them, and everything goes downhill fast.
How to make a Pisces woman fall in love with you?
This is a question which is very hard to give a general answer on, as no two Pisces women are totally identical. The key is understanding her and what she finds most attractive in a partner. Astrology can provide a wealth of information to enable this, however natal charts need to be prepared and studied to do so. Please see the article on seduction and astrology for more information on this.
What not to say to a Pisces women you're dating
Like other emotional signs, Pisces do become jealous and insecure fairly easily. Unless you want to create a lot of work for yourself repairing the damage, then jokes and insensitive comments regarding her or another woman's attractiveness are often best avoided. Unlike the women of some other signs, this is a lady and not "one of the boys!"
