Of all the zodiac signs, Pisces energy is the hardest to comprehend. Pisces and its planetary ruler Neptune govern everything associated with illusion, delusion, fantasy, and even deception. If you really want to understand Pisces, which is not easy and not guaranteed, it is important to understand that everything is energy, also everything is not always what it appears to be. Understanding these two factors offers insight into the mystical, out-of-reach energy that is Pisces.
Pisces & The Nebulous Neptune

Given that each zodiac sign is ruled by a specific planet, knowing Neptune is important in gaining greater insight into Pisces. Neptune is one of the last planets to be discovered. However, what makes Neptune special is that it was actually hidden or cloaked by other planetary bodies making it difficult for astronomers to “discover” it. The fact that Neptune was hidden by other planetary bodies speaks to the hidden, always out-of-reach energy of Pisces.
No Boundaries Leaves Things In The Air
One of the characteristics of Pisces energy is that it tends to lack boundaries. Because Pisces is the last sign and represents ego dissolution, there is an orientation towards releasing one’s own identity to become one with all that is external to the self. This can show up as wanting to blend with a lover to a desire for the soul to release the body and return home to universal Oneness. Without these boundaries, is difficult to know where Pisces begins and where something else ends. This creates an uncertainty that makes it hard to put Pisces in a box. As a matter of fact, Pisces/Neptune energy tends to avoid the constriction of categories and labels as there is the understanding that they are everything while being nothing at all.
Pisces/Neptune energy also governs all that is not seen with the naked eye. This can show up as some type of clairvoyance or other metaphysical ability to tap into the unseen to hallucinations and mental illness. It’s hard to tell whether someone actually has the ability to see beyond the veil or if that individual is dealing with mental illness. In the case of Pisces energy, it is quite possible that many do have the capacity to tap into the spiritual realm as those with heightened Pisces/Neptune energy are great psychics, mediums, and empaths and possess various clair functions such as clairvoyance, clairaudience, and clairsentience.
On the opposite end, Pisces/Neptune energy does have the capacity to be quite out of touch with reality creating the illusion of seeing things that may not necessarily be true. These occurrences are enhanced if substances such as drugs and alcohol are involved.
Living In A Dream…But Is It Real?
The dreamscape is governed by Pisces/Neptune energy. The saying that life is but a dream is definitely attributed to Pisces. There is the belief that this entire physical experience is actually a simulation or perhaps a lucid dream state where each of us uses an avatar to live out a dream. In a physical sense, Pisces energy has the capacity to genuinely make their dreams come true…if only they could ground their lofty dreams into reality.
In terms of the dreamscape itself, the ability to tap into subconscious awareness is possible through sleep and the dream state. This is a powerful way to reprogram the self…for better or worse. Other options that work on the subconscious mind include hypnosis. Tapping into the subconscious provides the opportunity to “hack the programming.”
The mature evolved Piscean understands that everything is energy and the lived experience is a reflection of the energy held. So, to create the life of one’s dreams is possible by taking accountability and responsibility for the energy held and emitted. Life can be a dream, but it can also be a nightmare depending on where someone is energetically.
Fairytales, Fantasies, & Fallacies
Pisces/Neptune energy also governs fantasies and fairytales. Just think of fantasy movies and all of their majesty and mysticism. They aren’t real, but they are amazing to watch as they take us to a place beyond where we are. Pisces rules imagination and fantasies. The imagination allows Pisces to tap into its strong creative core. Also, what some call fantasies Pisces may see as visualizations that make their perceived fantasy a reality.
In addition to fantasies and fairytales, Pisces also rules fallacies. Because of Neptune’s nebulous, unsettled energy, Pisces can easily get caught up in self-delusion which occurs when Pisces prefers to put on rose-colored glasses to see things as they would like as opposed to seeing things how they are. Pisces is cautioned to harness the power of their keen intuition instead of shirking off reality through purposeful delusion.
Everything Is Not As It Seems
If nothing else, when dealing with Pisces/Neptune energy it is important to remember that everything is not as it appears to be. Pisceans are very aware of the incongruences between the energy emitted and appearances. So, even if something or someone looks solid on paper, energetically, this may not be real. Even facts and information can be manipulated, and when this happens, the ability to detect energy is paramount to avoid being deceived. This is where the acute Piscean intuition comes in handy. Because Pisces is the only water sign that does not have a defense system such as Cancer’s hard shell and pinchers and Scorpio’s stinger, Pisces uses its ability to swim away or make itself hidden or invisible to protect itself from nefarious energies.
So, remember that Pisces/Neptune is all about the “vibe.” Superficialities such as appearances, money, status, and social connections cannot trump energy. If the energy is off, the in-tune Pisces is likely to see beyond the illusion and separate itself accordingly.
Hidden…In Plain Sight
While some zodiac signs prefer to get noticed, Pisces is oriented towards environments that allow them to go under the radar. But, don’t be deceived. Just because Pisces is in the background doesn’t mean that they are unimportant. In fact, Pisces is often an important staple that keeps things running…like the subconscious ruling the conscious. In some ways, this could be interpreted as an illusion of unimportance that Pisces purposely creates not only as an expression of humility but also as a form of protection.
Ultimately, attempting to understand the untouchable and mystical is a great feat which is why Pisces is the master of illusion and so difficult to understand. Pisces/Neptune represents what is cloaked and hidden, and its intuitive awareness is not linear and logical adding to the mysticism and nebulousness of this sign. Energy and resonance are paramount and the underlying factors actually aren’t as minor as they appear to be. Nevertheless, Pisces is a sign that will always be a bit out of touch making it hard to comprehend…especially for those who lean into practical, linear thinking and understanding.
