Pisces, the last sign of the horoscope represented by a fish swimming in deep and cold waters. Some consider Pisces the “retirees” of the horoscope; others perceive them as dreamers living in an illusion or snowmen who are comfortable with cold conditions and the slow pace of life.
Pisces’ personality is one that’s often misunderstood. This water sign is as mysterious as they come, and maybe that’s why they seem to have a reputation for being “cold.” This doesn’t mean that people with the Pisces zodiac sign are unfriendly or cold-hearted — just misunderstood.
Now, looking at the Pisces traits, it becomes clear why they might sometimes come across as distant or untrusting. They’re quite sensitive individuals with the ability to see into someone else’s soul. Because of this knack for getting right to the heart of things, others may think them cold, aloof, and even creepy. Their kind, optimistic demeanor masks a cautious side that comes out when they sense danger or distrust from someone else.
Read on to learn more about why Pisces seem so cold and whether they are cold or not.
Pisces are sensitive, not cold
The Pisces personality is often misunderstood because they see the world differently than most people. They’re not cold or aloof; they’re just sensitive and thoughtful individuals who may see the world differently than you do.
Pisces are the types of people constantly scanning the room, picking up on the energy in the room, and feeling the energy of others. They want to help alleviate any discomfort that others may be feeling, so they’ll step in to try and make everything feel more normal. This is likely why Pisces is often given the title of “the nice guy.”
They’re the friend everyone wants to have because they’re so selfless and caring. The problem is that because Pisces absorb the emotions of everyone around them, they can end up taking on the mood of everyone at the same time — which is why some people think they’re cold.
Pisces can come across as cold and highly sensitive people with a keen sense of intuition. When they pick up on energy that makes them uncomfortable, they can distance themselves as a way of self-protection. This can lead others to think that they’re standoffish or cold when really they’re just being cautious. Indeed, there’s nothing wrong with being cautious, especially when you’re a sensitive soul who’s been picked on or hurt in the past.
It’s important to understand that this isn’t a sign of coldness; it’s a sign of self-preservation.
Pisces need independence and freedom
There is a sense of aloofness about water signs, and this can manifest in a cold manner. Since Pisces are extremely intuitive, they can be somewhat impervious to others’ needs and wishes. Their independent nature can make them seem cold or selfish, but this is quite the opposite. Pisces just don’t want to be tied down by anyone or anything.
They do not like being controlled by others and will always do things their way. They need the freedom to explore their dreams and reach their potential. So they are unlikely to be overbearing tyrants, more likely to fade from view because they are wrapped up in their own world!
Pisces need more time & trust to open up
The star sign of Pisces is all about empathy and sensitivity. They are the ones who feel the pain of others deeply and tend to be drawn to suffering in the hope of easing it. Because of this, they can come across as too soft, too giving, and too emotional to others. They can come across as cold and withdrawn, especially to those who don’t know them well.
They need time to open up to others and feel a level of trust that takes time to develop. Once they have given their trust, they will be warm and loyal companions, but they need that sense of safety first.
They are private people who carry much emotional weight from the world around them. They need safe spaces to let down their guard and be themselves without judgment or criticism. So, Pisces are not cold, although they may seem so at first glance. They just need more time and trust to open up more.
If you’ve been living under the impression that Pisces is the coldest zodiac sign, I hope this article opened your eyes or changed your perspective. Pisces may seem like an ice cube, but trust me, that’s just a shell under which is hiding a gentle, sensitive, and kind-hearted soul.
