Characteristics of Pisces: The people having Pisces Ascendant or Moon sign are of soft and flexible nature. No matter what obstacles come in their way, they keep on doing their tasks. They don’t like to stick to one place, instead, they like to travel a lot. The Pisceans make good swimmers too. They are passionate and high on energy, however, they lack self-confidence. They are fond of exploring mythological texts, and history. Wherever they go, they can talk about religion at length, as they are a firm believer in God. Rather than getting into the depths of others’ views to understand fully, they make premature conclusions. While taking important decisions, they can put a lot of time to evaluate things with a balanced view, which generally slows down everything. Their inclination towards the God and Supernatural can be seen pretty easily. They can be seen taking part in charitable events actively. People love to interact with Pisceans because of their politeness and the knowledge they possess. However, being closely attached with people, Pisceans are more prone to get emotional heartbreaks quite often due to their oversensitive nature.
