As the last sign of the zodiac, Pisces is often misunderstood. There are numerous reasons for this, but one of the main reasons is that Pisces is everything while being nothing at all. Once a soul has reached the stage of Pisces, it literally has been every other sign before it. From Aries to Aquarius, Pisces has the unique ability to tap into each of the signs and become them at will while still being itself. Because of this, it is quite hard to put Pisces energy into a box. Let’s explore the reasons why Pisces is one of the most misunderstood signs of the zodiac.
Pisces & Neptune: Out of Reach
Pisces’ planetary ruler is Neptune, and if you know anything about Neptune it is one of the planets that has a very interesting discovery story. Neptune was discovered by astronomers by happenstance. Neptune was found “hiding” behind other planets. Due to this, Neptune has always been considered a planet that is hard to access. It’s composed of a variety of gasses, and it has an interesting atmospheric environment. Neptune is an overall mystery to even people who study the stars. It should come as no shock that Pisces is just as mysterious as its ruler Neptune. In fact, Pisces is known for being a bit out of touch as if they are keeping something close to their chest only for themselves. This hidden aspect of Piscean energy can be alluring to some and frustrating to others.

Hidden In Plain Sight
Did you know how to hide in plain sight? Well, Pisces does without even trying. Pisces, Neptune, and the 12th house all represent what is hidden. It’s important to note that just because something is hidden doesn’t mean it’s ineffective or doesn’t add value. Anyone that has studied the subconscious truly understands just how much of an impact the subconscious actually has on our conscious actions. This is the energy of Pisces where there is a preference for not putting themselves out there while working in the background. Pisces in many ways enjoys being the underdog even though they honestly know that they are not. Because the sign of Pisces is all about ego dissolution, most mature Pisces is really not hard up to be noticed, and they tend to prefer to do what they’re doing quietly without necessarily having to make a show.
While this may seem a bit self-effacing, Pisces enjoys knowing that they are the quiet backbone of endeavors. This is part of the art of being hidden in plain sight.
The Ruler of Mystics & Secrets
Pisces is associated with the mystical and is the ruler of secrets. This is an energy that resonates with all things that are beyond physical reach. Pisces energy governs understandings that go beyond logic and linear thinking. This is the knowledge that is gained from a place that goes beyond what can be gained from books. Pisces rules the connection to Source and the energies that provide information that couldn’t be grasped from practical understanding which is why Pisces is considered the most mystical sign of the zodiac.
Likewise, Pisces, Neptune, and the 12th house also govern secrets. These are the things that all of us hold very close to ourselves either because we simply don’t want people to know or because we just want privacy. Some people perceive Pisces as quite secretive, and even those closest to them feel as if Pisces keeps their cards close to their chest.
Shifting, Mutable, & Hard To Grasp
Pisces has the unique characteristic of being the mutable water sign. This adds a lot of flow and changeability to Piscean energy that can make them hard to understand and grasp. There’s a reason why Pisces is represented by two fish swimming in opposite directions. Think about a fish. Fish are hard to catch, especially if you’re trying to do so with bare hands. To catch a fish, you often have to bait them, and even then, you have to hope that they don’t escape the bait.
The mutability and duality of Pisces energy create the ability to hold two opposing energies at once. Similar to the other mutable dual signs of Gemini, Virgo, and Sagittarius, there is adaptability to the environment. This adaptability can make it difficult to really understand the mutable signs because they’re always making adjustments to make themselves comfortable wherever they are.
In the case of Pisces, there is this ability to hold duality in a way that embraces everything because as the last zodiac sign Pisces understands that everything no matter how opposite is still one. It’s for this reason that Pisces has a lot of compassion because it understands that just as a person can be a sinner at one stage of their lives there is the possibility that person could do a total 180 and become a saint. Pisces also understands that no person is just one thing and that we all have variances to our characters that resonate with both light and dark.
Building A Mystery
In some ways, Pisces purposely builds a mystery. Many individuals with Pisces energy really don’t want to be out there. They prefer to be set aside or set away and deal with people of their choosing. They are not necessarily open books, but they’re not necessarily closed off. It’s as if they’re feeling out their environment to determine how much or how little they should share or keep to themselves. For those who are a bit more open, Pisces can be an enigma that can be intriguing or just too difficult to understand. Nevertheless, it could be said that Pisces enjoys being a bit untouchable and misunderstood. They have the understanding that they are really on their own wavelength, and Pisces allows themselves to be who they are and simply connect to what resonates with them without effort.
So, is Pisces a bit of a mystery? Most definitely. That’s what they’re here to do…to represent what is unseen and the connectivity to the spirit realm. Pisces energy is the literal embodiment of all things hidden in the flesh, and they are doing their job well of manifesting this energy in physical form.
