Dear Rosebud, I was born March 18, 1990, and I'm a Pisces. My question to you is, is there anything a Pisces should straight-up avoid? Sincerely, Inquisitive Fish
Dear Inquisitive Fish,
I'm glad you asked this question because I'm also a Pisces, and I feel like our sign should come with some serious dos and don'ts because of how sensitive we are.
First off, I want to address the reputation we have for being "sensitive." It doesn't necessarily mean we'll burst into tears over anything that hurts our feelings.
In fact, it can be harder to hurt a Pisces' feelings than many would think.
A Pisces is sensitive in the sense that they are quick to detect or respond to even the slightest change, signal or influence either within or outside of ourselves.
What that means is, we need to be careful about the things we put into our bodies, the people we surround ourselves with and the environments we put ourselves in.
I would never flat-out tell you to avoid anything in your life because that would go against what I believe in most, which is our free will to experience things for ourselves (including major mistakes).
I will say, however, it's very important for you to pay attention to your own body and to regularly check in on your mental and physical state.
For example, let's say you have a date planned for later this week.
You're not sure if you want to go, but you've already flaked on the person twice and don't want to let them down a third time.
After all, they've given you three chances, so why not give them one?
They send you a text (again) to confirm your plans, and like before, you suddenly feel the urge to flake.
And it's not like something seems to be wrong with this person. There's no detectable reason they couldn't be your new bae.
So, why the hesitation?
Before you text them back, take a minute to notice how you feel, not what you think.
Are you holding your breath? Are your shoulders totally tense?
My only advice is, you should trust that sixth sense you were gifted by the stars.
You might not feel like you have a superpower, but you do. You're able to "feel" things about people that are invisible to the naked eye.
Of course, you may want to go against it, suck it up and go on this date because you hate letting people down.
But believe me, you will thank me if you trust your intuition.
Go with your gut, and see what happens.
So no, Pisces, there's nothing under the sun that I would tell you to avoid, except ignoring your intuition.
It's your greatest and most powerful gift.
