Leather and lace, fringe and fetish … in this series, we’ll take a peek at the kinkier side of the zodiac. Each sign has its own distinct sexual flavor; by combining the various tastes you find in the natal chart, each person’s unique sexual recipe begins to emerge. We’ve finally reached that most changeable, most unfathomable sign of the Zodiac, the Pisces.
Pisces is the most mutable of the mutable signs. Those influenced by this sign are born actors; they can be anything, to anyone, at any time. They can play the top, the bottom, the middle, the outside; one of a twosome, threesome, or fourteensome; the exhibitionist or the voyeur; the boy, the girl, both, or neither — in fact, if you can imagine it, Pisces can do it, and probably has. But … why?
The key is that Pisceans derive satisfaction almost solely from giving their partners pleasure. So, you have a Piscean friend who’s suddenly gone from impeccably-clad, black-tie dominatrix to wispy, giggling, pastel ditz? She’s changed lovers. Her entire persona will draw itself subtly around the new partner’s tastes; she’ll morph into the girl of his or her dreams, with very few compunctions or self-doubts.
[show_to accesslevel=’All-Access’]It’s quite natural and it’s almost subconscious. They’re good at it, too. Pisces influences (particularly the Sun, the Ascendant, or Venus) give a kind of intuition that other folks call “psychic.” When a Fish tunes into their lover’s unspoken sexual wavelengths, the result is nothing short of fantasy fulfillment; they take great pride in their ability to extract and enact even the most carefully hidden desires.
Most are fundamentally bisexual, and both sexes often remain attractively gender-fluid. One of the few things that tend to remain constant include an enjoyment of heightened sensation; many Pisceans like a little pain with their pleasure, as well as long, drawn-out teasing sessions or sensual play.
The Piscean sex drive is very instinctive and often cyclical. When they’re in heat (with Pisces, this is a completely apt description) everyone within a hundred miles knows it; they radiate a kind of deep sexuality that is similar to Scorpio‘s yet slightly more dispersed. Small mobs of admirers accumulate overnight, like alley cats when a housebound Persian is feeling frisky.
Here’s a little clue: Pisceans don’t actually live in their own bodies. Their sensitivity seems to reside some few feet away, at least. They can have extremely intimate contact (some would call it “sex”) without ever touching someone; artistic Pisceans make good use of this, using the sexual/sensual sensitivity to fully engage with whatever person, object, or scene they’re in love with at the moment.
Some of the best parts of Piscean sex happen in this non-contact way, and some Fish remain perpetually disappointed by the act itself. They then compulsively seek out new sexual experiences, trying to physically match the psychic merging that is so familiar. Until these Fish learn that physical merging is one thing and psychic merging another, each to be enjoyed on its own terms, they can be restless, self-destructive, and completely unreliable.
The physical drive is strong, but not at all assertive; for instance, the Pisces Mars is sensual and amorous, but rarely aggressive. It can be sneaky. If you’ve ever had accidental sex (say, you were snoozing in a big chair with a new beau and whoops! you both wake up in need of a towel and some Chinese takeout) you probably encountered the Pisces Mars in action. Like water dripping on stone, it’s gentle, subtle, and effective — unless you’re the jackhammer type, of course.
Pisceans are mutability incarnate. Like water itself, they can change shape in an instant to fit almost any situation. Some folks find this annoying, but some find it fascinating and beautiful; if you’re one of the latter, a Piscean lover may suit your tastes. Be prepared to go all the way, though. Deep dreams and fantasies are Pisces’ territory, and they’ll never be happy with superficial facades. If they find a fantasy they like, they’ll act it out for you, as close to perfectly as possible. And if your wildest dreams happen to coincide with theirs, you could have a dream lover for life. Make a wish….[/show_to]
