This is the second topic of the blogging challenge. I gotta say, I really had a hard time thinking of what to write in this topic, and right now, as I am writing this, I still don’t have a full picture on what to say. So to make it more easier for myself, I decided to get a little help from my friend also known as the internet. 🙂
I am a Pisces, so I searched for characteristics of a Pisces. Some of it might be accurate, some might be slightly questionable. I got this passage from astrology-zodiac-signs.com. Let’s try to break it to pieces.
Pisces are very friendly, so they often find themselves in a company of very different people. Pisces are selfless, they are always willing to help others, without hoping to get anything back. Pisces is a Water sign and as such this zodiac sign is characterized by empathy and expressed emotional capacity.
This part is very evident in me, especially to those who know me personally. As much as possible, I don’t want anyone feeling uncomfortable, mainly because it discomforts me as well. I often think I’m too nice to people that sometimes, I think it isn’t right anymore. Growing up, I learned to just understand where people are coming from and putting myself in their position. I always think that things would be better if I do all the compassion and leave it to other people to their realizations for themselves. I do it so often that I don’t know how to fight for my side anymore and I’m trying to change that. I am one of those people who believes that there’s a good side in everyone.
Their ruling planet is Neptune, so Pisces are more intuitive than others and have an artistic talent. Neptune is connected to music, so Pisces reveal music preferences in the earliest stages of life.
I don’t really consider myself ~artistic~, but I think I have enough appreciation for arts. I honestly think that my taste in art (includes music, film, architecture, photography, etc.) is far classier than usual people of my age. Art isn’t just something that appeals to my senses, it also reaches my heart. I just can’t explain how chills crawl over my spine and how the butterflies flutter in my stomach whenever I hear or see something so beautiful.
Pisces-born are known by their wisdom, but under the influence of Uranus, Pisces sometimes can take the role of a martyr, in order to catch the attention.
So, I guess this is the bad side of me. I think I constantly crave for attention (even if I have social anxiety) and I want it for people to see me as someone to be jealous of. I try my hardest not to be an asshole and put spotlight on me especially when I think it’s something I would be praised for later on, but deep inside, that’s exactly what I know I want. I want attention and I want people to look at me as perfect, as someone that makes a lot of sense. I know I cannot achieve that, but I have to be honest that that’s the dark part of me. I think it’s one thing that people don’t admit, but I think as long as that part of you can be controlled, you’re good.
So, that’s a glimpse of me. I tried my hardest even though I really don’t know how to talk about myself and how to describe myself because I don’t think I know myself that well yet, but we’ll get there. 🙂
