Pisces Creativity


Types of Thinkers

How does a person with Mercury in Pisces communicate with others? Well, these are the poets and the painters, the lovers and the dreamers, the writers and the singers. They are the philanthropists who will give someone else their own coat if they think that person is colder than they are. But abstract thought is not all about flowers and sunsets. Albert Einstein dreamed up that theory of relativity too. This shows that practical actions can also come from a person who thinks in abstract terms, giving us a more complete picture of the way a Mercury in Pisces communicates.

Vivid Imaginations

These are people with vivid imaginations who can visualize their thoughts. They are telepathic on an unconscious level. Because Mercury in Pisces communications are so much in the psychic realm, they must be careful they are not too influenced by the thoughts of those who surround them. They will pick up on other people’s moods in a matter of minutes, even if they are just sitting on a bus next to an irritated or upset person. They arrive at their conclusions mostly by their intuitions, not by logical reasoning, and it works just fine.

Mercury in Pisces people learn by osmosis anyway, so disciplined study is not really their thing. They learn by intuitive perceptions, and watching people and situations. This teaches them more than they will ever learn from a book, though reading as an escape once in a while is an activity which will appeal to them. Their psychic abilities may make it seem like they have a peculiar way of thinking, because they just “know” things. This writer grew up with two Pisces people in the family, and gratefully accepts that they sense things and know if something is wrong without being told.

Since Pisces is a mutable or changeable sign, what kind of house would they like to live in? This writer thinks a houseboat would be the perfect thing! Cancer is the first water sign, but the cardinal and leadership one, and water that changes really often would represent them, such as the ocean, with its waves and tides. Scorpio is the fixed water sign, and so a frozen lake or iceberg in the sea would represent them. But the body of water that represents a Mercury in Pisces person is a slowly meandering river that has a lot of changing scenes along the shore.

They have Empathy

These are people whose minds can be easily biased by unconscious emotional patterns, based on their past experiences. Now, this happens to most of us at some time or other. But Pisces Mercury people must be careful they do not get so trapped by their negative memories that it makes them neurotic. It can be that way if they take it to extremes, or have difficult or strong planetary aspects to their Mercury.

But the norm is to find a sensitive and imaginative person, with a lot of artistic ability, who is sympathetic and really understands what it is like to be in another person’s shoes. Unscrupulous people can play on their empathetic natures, so if you have a friend or loved one with this Mercury position, try to watch out for that. They have fluctuating emotions which can cause a lot of vacillation in decision making and communication. Daydreaming is a big tendency, but then to think up such creative ideas, one has to do a lot of daydreaming!

Mercury in Pisces communicators are great story tellers. They notice all the details and soak up all the feelings of whatever situation they are in, so are great at expressing themselves. They can be the life of the party, but are actually private people, who require time alone pretty often. This is not because they are angry or upset, privacy is just a big need of theirs. They are often secretive about themselves until they are sure they trust someone, and will keep their private thoughts to themselves. This will cause them to seem shy, but they really are not, it is just a Mercury position which requires seclusion once in a while. So don't be surprised if your Mercury in Pisces person disappears for a few days. They need to clear their heads. Then when their need for quiet is over, they will go someplace else, pick up all their friends, and home turns into a party until the next mood change.

Highly Psychic

Sometimes Mercury in Pisces people have a bit of a persecution complex. They tend to be a tad oversensitive, and may think somebody criticized them when that was not the person’s intention. They need to try to be more impersonal in their thinking and in their perception of reality, something that is easier to say than to do.

These people are like walking encyclopedias, they pick up little facts and interesting tidbits of knowledge no matter what they are doing. They are quick studies who can easily adapt to any kind of situation, even one they just walked into, and “know” the exact requirements of the moment. How do they do that? You can try to get them to explain it, but unless you have psychic abilities yourself, it will not be easy to understand. They are natural mediums too. Of course, we all have psychic ability, it’s just that all of us do not try to develop it.

A few years ago this reader was in a metaphysical store with a friend; we were taking a course together. A psychic was walking around the store, just introducing herself, and telling us things that she never could have known about people she never met. She had both of us crying—me about a message from my father who died when I was in my 20’s—she knew I had a son whose middle name was my father’s first name, among other things, and what the name was. The second message was from my friend’s husband who had died a few years prior to that night. He wanted to tell her it was OK with him if she started to date again, he was afraid she was getting lonely! I asked the psychic her sign, and of course it was Pisces, though most water signs have these abilities. Even if your Sun is in Aquarius or Aries, Mercury is the closest planet to the Sun, so people of those Sun signs have a good chance of having Mercury in Pisces.

A Pisces Dream Home

Mercury in Pisces minds can absorb a lot of information, which comes in really handy for memorizing things before tests in college and such. They get bored really easily, so love to travel, that’s why a houseboat would be such an appealing way for them to live. Being near the water is very soothing for water signs anyway. These people are great judges of human nature, they know who can be trusted and who can’t just by being near them. They are very diplomatic and goodnatured most of the time, except for those days when they need their private time. Versatile, ingenious, dexterous, Mercury in Pisces have many positive qualities.

Their kind hearts lead them to wanting to help those less fortunate, so they often work in hospitals, jails, hospices, schools for people with special needs, as death doulas, or at regular hospitals. They have healing qualities in their natures. Plus working in a large institution seems to quell some of that need to be secluded sometimes, as one worker does not stand out so much in a large building. Last year this writer worked on a series of people from each astrology sign, and discovered that Pisces people were the ones who gave the most time and money to charity. When a Mercury in Pisces communicator is trying to get a point across, it is often about someone other than themselves. How can you not love such kindhearted old souls? They truly deserve to float down that lazy river, dreaming up new ways to help people and show them a good time.

Questions & Answers

  • I have a mercury in Pisces, Sun in Aries, moon in Taurus and ascendant in Capricorn. Sometimes I dream of the future. How do I enhance my psychic abilities??

    The best way to improve your intuitive and psychic abilities is to begin meditation. I know it sounds odd, but when you learn to quiet your mind and stop all the chatter, you train your mind. Sit quietly for about 20 minutes a day, and do your best to clear your mind. Stay with it. In a few weeks, unimportant thoughts won't distract you as much, and that's when your mind is clear enough to start seeing visions and colors. Work your way up to twice a day. Eventually, you may see other lives or scenes that have meaning for you.

    There are many types of meditation, so you can research that and decide what you like. Beginners sometimes like to listen to guided meditations, where someone else talks and leads you through. There is an app for your cell phone called Buddhify which has short, guided meditations. I am writing an article about how to develop intuition and clairvoyance, so hope to be able to post that soon.

  • I have both Mercury and Mars in Pisces. What are your thoughts?

    Mercury rules the way you think. Since Pisces is a water sign, your decisions are colored more by your emotions than rational thought. This doesn't have to be bad though, as Pisces is a very intuitive sign. So you can read others very well and always should trust your first impressions and intuition - it won't fail you. You may have psychic ability too and experience unusual visions or have really vivid dreams.

    Mars in Pisces means your strong emotions come from your unconscious mind. You are extremely emotional and need to be sure that you don't let this eat away at your self-confidence. You need periods of solitude to regain your energy; this is not a high energy Mars. But you work well behind the scenes and are very sensitive towards others.

    All of your other planets are in zodiac signs too, so it's likely you have one or two in Earth signs or signs that help to ground you more. Meditation would be very good for you. You would also enjoy the studies of metaphysical topics like astrology, tarot, meditation, reiki healing and the like.

  • I have Sun, Mercury, and Lilith in Pisces all in third house (Virgo moon, Caprising, Pluto Scorpio) I have anxiety and PTSD. How can I develop my self and be confident at most of the times?

    The third house rules communications in areas we visit each day, or with coworkers, neighbors, and siblings. Pisces is a gentle, sensitive sign, and since your Mercury is there, it makes it hard for you to assert yourself. Plus the Pisces sun means you see others from a place of understanding and spirituality, so you don't want to hurt anyone.

    But you have strong intuition and can read other people well, so I'd like to see you develop that more. Meditation can help that and also calm you. It's a little hard at first to block your thoughts, but as you learn to do it better, it clears the clutter from your mind. There is even an app for your phone called Buddhify, it's cheap, and can help you with short, guided meditations to get you started. I use it when I'm short on time.

    Pluto is strong in Scorpio, so that should help with your confidence. You are capable and have courage; you just need to learn to speak your truth more easily. Also, Virgo Moon people are practical, and most people depend on their advice, so you have planets in signs that can overcome that Pisces shyness, and most Pisces people are good storytellers and read others like books. The Mercury means your thoughts are ruled by your emotions, so that can be the issue. But I think you are just getting in your own way.,

    I am unsure about the PTSD; you may have a difficult aspect to your Virgo Moon. The Pisces planets may oppose it depending on the degrees the planets are in. Take vitamins and eat well in the days which lead up to your menstrual cycle, meditate, and try to exercise. If you have continued issues, see your gynecologist.

  • I have Sun, Moon and Mercury in Pisces. I find this combination hinders my communication with others and amplifies my emotions to ridiculous absurdity. Also, I have Venus and Mars in Aries. Any suggestions?

    You are psychic and read others so well, you can tell what they are thinking anyway, so I guess that would be a problem for communication! Your Venus in Aries is helpful here. Venus rules our social and love lives, so you are outgoing, at least when certain planets are transiting that Venus. Just be careful not to blurt something out, a common Aries fault. Venus will be going into Aries on April 18th this year, and it stays for about a month. See if it's easier for you to communicate then. Most Venus in Aries people are fun and have original ideas, are the leaders of their social groups. Also, Mars is the physical part of your life. Aries is an assertive sign. Try to push yourself past the Pisces sensitivity, and use your Venus and Mars energies more. I have an article on what the planets in your birth chart mean, this may help a bit: Even though you can read people well, it doesn't have to be a disadvantage. You can tell who is more receptive to you. Talk to them.

      The Pisces in Mercury means you think with your heart, not your head, so that can mean you are easily influenced by others. Aries people are also distracted, or have ideas and don't finish the projects. But the Mars in Scorpio means you should finish what is meaningful to you, and Virgo rising is a hard worker. Also, Scorpio and Aquarius are fixed signs. Maybe you just haven't hit on that thing you want to do yet.

      Hello Jean, I'm an Aries sun, Aquarius moon, Virgo rising, Scorpio mars in retrograde and Pisces in mercury. I love to do so many things at once, but I can never truly decide on what I want to do because I am easily influenced by my environment and others emotions. How do I fix this?

      The 12th house is the natural house for Pisces. It means you are secretive and like to spend time alone. You could work in a large institution, such as a jail or hospital. You are very emotional and have psychic ability. If you go back to cafeastrology and actually read, it will tell you what it means for every planet in a zodiac sign and every house. Please don't ask questions that have been answered if you would only read yourself.

      I don't think it's a bad placement. It's not a real sensible kind of thinker, but has good points. Your thoughts are ruled by what you feel, and that makes you good natured and compassionate. I think you also would be artistic and creative. It's an unconventional way of thinking, making you a nonconformist. I like it.

      Not a good placement for Mercury. A poster in another thread commented that a trine to Uranus helped him.

      Yes, having so many planets in Pisces means you are a natural when it comes to metaphysical subjects. You can read others very well and are spiritual and patient, so will be helpful to them. I think an Angel course is a great idea, as Pisces is the last sign, the most spiritual, closest to God. You are an old soul. Go for it!

      I have Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus and Saturn in Pisces! What a combination! Mars, Uranus and Pluto in Virgo, Juptier in Taurus, and Scorpio in Neptune. I've trained in Reiki, and am contemplating taking an Angel course. Does my astrological placement indicate that this would be a good stream of study for me? I'm drawn to all things metaphysical. Any guidance would be wonderful. Thank you.

      Hello Andrea,

      The 4th house rules home, family and real estate, to name a few things. The Moon rules your emotional makeup. So you are very family oriented and may do well in real estate or estate planning. Pisces means you can read others very well, being psychic. You should always trust your intuition. Mercury is the way you think. In Pisces, you think with your heart, not your head. But there could be other influences in your chart that are in signs that will balance this out. So you think often of family ties, and the kind of home atmosphere you want. I really would like to see you in real estate, I have a license, and it depends a lot on instincts and how well you read people. And properties to match them up with. It's a good aspect. Take care.

      The Sun in Pisces means you are kind and spiritual, you accept others for what they are. Mercury is the way you think, and you think with your heart, not your head, and are a dreamer. The Scorpio Rising helps you to be more independent, assertive, sexy, stubborn (which you need with Pisces) and you have a lot of drive to succeed.

      I don't know why you are shocked to find your ex has Mercury in Pisces. This rules the way he thinks, with his heart, not his head.

      I cannot provide free astrology readings. If you are interested, click the house on my profile page and it will take you to my blog, so you can see what info I need and a schedule of fees, also how I take payment.

      I am so glad to hear your creative side is blossoming. You think with your heart with this position.

      I can't do much with a list like this, I have to draw it out and do a complete horoscope. It takes me 10-12 hrs. and I charge a fee. I can be reached at

      But the Aquarius Sun, Taurus Moon, and Leo Ascendant are all in fixed signs! I wouldn't want to be the one to get you to change your opinions :). Venus in Pisces means you are romantic and sensual, also creative and loving. Mars in Aquarius gives you a talent for knowing how things work and able to fix them. I don't do asteroids. Thanks for reading my work. Best wishes.

      This has been very insightful for me. Over the last year and a half I've been on a journey of self-development and self-awareness. my knowledge for spirituality and astrology has grown immaculately and because of it my understanding of self has been better and i've been able to meet my needs. i love art, music and anything creative. i write poetry and music. i love to draw but artistry is something that runs in my family. i never use to share my creative side i use to keep it to myself but not anymore. thank you. p.s i left a piece of me at the bottom.

      It's normal to have planets next to the astrology next to your sun sign. Aquarius makes you a nonconformist, so does the Scorpio Rising. You are strong willed and need info to make up your mind, although in Pisces, Mercury means your thoughts are colored by your emotions. Pluto is the home planet of Scorpio, so you will transform or change your life several times, usually to better yourself. The Scorpio Moon makes you emotionally intense.

      I feel awful I can't cast horoscopes for free. It's so time consuming, and I often have a waiting list of several weeks. If you go to Cafe, they explain the meanings of the planets in the signs. If you know your birth time, you can get a chart from there (I trust that site). But it will be a lot of astrology jargon that's meaningless to you, and only a few pages about yourself. I truly am sorry. Jean

      Hello Noah,

      Although I answer short questions here at the comments area, I can't work with this here. It takes 10-12 hours to draw and interpret an astrology chart, and I charge a fee. If you are interested, please go to I would love to help you, but don't have that kind of time to cast and interpret this for free. The site you copy and pasted the info from probably offers a computerized version, and I need different info than this. I have respectfully asked people to stop doing this. Thank you.

      I have had a number of very psychic experiences that I would almost discount or shrug off when in favt they were very real. I've come to accept that I'm a channel for psychic energies and understanding my Mercury in Pisces was a huge step. This article was fantastic, thank you. Also, it is a very strange feeling to be an Aquarius sandwiched between a Scorpio rising and Scorpio in my moon.

      Hi, I answered, but an unsure why it's coming up again in my comment section. It should be by the hub itself.

      Jean Bakula 

      20 months ago from New Jersey

      You are very welcome. Actually, opposite signs like Virgo and Pisces often share traits. A Virgo planet or placement will force you to be detail oriented, but you will be more interested in creative and spiritual matters with the Mercury and Sun in Pisces.

      As you said, the Sag Rising makes you more independent and interested in foreign travel and religions, or education and religions or philosophies.

      I just answered a person with opposite Sun and Moon, I have it myself. The Sun is your personality people see, but the Moon, which is part of your personality, but mostly rules your emotions, are not so open. So it takes people longer to get to know you. And you probably have to explain yourself more, you don't wear your emotions on your sleeve with the Virgo in you (though the Pisces helps you here). You are not a sociopath, this aspect does make it harder to understand ourselves. We bury our emotions more than even we realize. Take care, Jean

      Hello Jean,

      This was a really good read. My sun and mercury are both in Pisces and this is exactly how I am! I always thought my situational reading was from my Virgo Moon/MC (and I was born under full moon) and I was able to react to situations correctly due to my always thinking mood, but this actual helps me to differentiate how I'm affected by the 2 signs individually. And now I also see my Sag Rising using my need for daydreaming, time alone, and travel to back up my need for freedom. Growing up it was hard to connect with peers due to learning only facts, and things I see, it understanding emotions or feelings at all, kind of a sociopath due to ignorance, but when I matured I learned a lot about myself, and because of that others. I still have troubles with emotions/feelings and still my favorite thing is to go in my head and just observe and connect everything. I'm not much to remember facts, but if I learn a truth, I won't forget it, but it will only show up again if the situation calls for it. Still have a lot of ways to go, but thank you for this Jean!

      Thank you for this article. I'm Sun in Aries and Mercury in Pisces. I've always felt opposed to many Aries characteristics and often felt detached when reading my astrology. This is the first time astrology shined light on my personality. I am an artist/painter and love reading philosophy and psychology. Just daydreaming about looking up into the sky while lying on my back in a boat feels absolutely heavenly. I feel like I've been given a gift today. Thank you!

      Hi Clauie,

      That makes sense. An Aries sun person is normally extroverted. But the moon and other planets are all in a sign. Mercury in Pisces makes this friend a dreamer, who prefers to work behind the scenes. I bet he will do anything to help others though?

      Thanks Darshan,

      You are correct. Each planet and the Sun are in a sign, which can vary things quite a bit. Mercury only tells us how a person thinks, and even that can change depending on what house it's in, or what other aspects it has to other planets.

      Hi Diana,

      You sound very positive, you must have a fast vibration rate! You would be a great doctor, because an Aquarius has an intelligent mind to learn all the science and math stuff, but the Pisces makes you sensitive. That's what's missing in doctors today. Sometimes parents mean well but tell us we are a way that we are not. I have health issues and wore braces to school when young, and had to be strong as I got teased a lot. So my parents treated me like a fragile flower and told me I was "high strung." As an adult I am very capable, and as a widow of 3 years I've gone on and even went to a country I never went to by myself, Antigua. So parents don't know everything. And I am a parent of an adult son too.

      Yes, if you sit by a person with a low vibration, they start to bring you down right away. You should meditate, I bet you are very psychic. The Pisces in you would be good for writing poetry. I'm Cancer and published a poetry book, but went about it the wrong way. But it can be a fun hobby and way to get out some emotions.

      I have waking visions of what will happen at times. A few years ago I was very upset by something, and walked into my BR. My Mom was standing there, except she died in 1995. Work on developing your psychic abilities, they will get stronger. You can burn sage to clear your house of negative energies or use crystals (I have a hub on that on Exemplore). It's been nice "chatting with you"! Take care.

      What you are saying in this article is very accurate! I have my Sun in Aquarius and Mercury in Pisces.

      I love being around water,if i could I would stay in water whole day!

      I am a medical student and my dream from a very young age was to become a doctor so I could help people.

      For me this is a life mission! I feel that i have to do this.

      Since I were a child,my teachers told my parents that I am too sensitive and emotional and that I would have trouble later in life because of that.

      I am also very attracted towards arts and literature. I have been told in middle school and in highschool that I am very creative and good at writing. For me writing is a way of expressing my feelings. I am better at communicating in writting than verbaly.

      When you said that we are intuive you are right! I know when a person has a lower vibration because I can sense it. There were times when i ignored my intuition because it seemed ilogical(the Aquarius part of me ,i guess) and I realised that i were wrong.

      It may sound weird,but sometimes I know when something good or right is about to happen. Usually I am right...

      Now everything makes sense to me! Thank you very much for your article! :)
