Piscean Feet

Botticelli

Once I read, in a seemingly know-all book that i cannot recall the name of, how Pisces people had feet that were either “exquisitely beautiful” or absolutely revolting. Nothing moderate or in between when it comes to Pisces Feet and Beauty.  Foot heaven or foot hell. So I have Sun in Pisces and ever since then I have been vaguely paranoid about my feet.

Pisces does correspond with the feet – the medieval correspondences start with Aries at the forehead and go right down to Pisces at the feet. Yes, incidentally, Scorpio is “the genitals.”  Ancient medical astrologers would deal with a problem in a particular part of the body by first identifying the associated sign/planet and then the appropriate herb.  Nicholas Culpeper was probably the most renowned of these healers.

But to be stuck with either the supermodel of feet OR something so repulsive that they frighten children and animals? That seems unfair.  And over-the-top tabloid sensibility such as the Daily Mail’s recent Bunion Watch Alert do nothing to help Pisces Foot Paranoia.

First you think regular pedicures will do it – groomed, chic and the scurf scrubbed off by someone at close range, right? But no. There are podiatrists buying Tesla motor cars and beach resort bars off the proceeds from walk-in mani-pedi bars. They call them ‘nail brothels’ and cite squeamishly vile tales of fake sterilizers (the real ones are super-costly), filthy instruments, slave waged staff, golden staph, warts and worse.  That’s before one explores the toxicity of nail polish or safety of shellac.

The same stupid book that informed me Pisces people (it included Moon in Pisces plus Pisces Rising btw) had hideous or in some cases stunning feet also said Pisces was prone to “fallen arches.” The life of a Pisces without supermodel feet is apparently this long-running nightmare of shuffling around with flat feet, bulging eyes and a penchant for aquamarine nylon kaftans.

OR – and I have done this – they exist in denial, spend strange nights furiously exfoliating their feet and getting all hypochondriac about reflexology charts – in between bouts of foot binding themselves into the most highest ‘fuq off my feet are fine‘ heels they can acquire.  And if all that is not enough, Pisces people are routinely slung with the “foot fetishist” label.

If the medieval astrologers were correct, extreme self-care for and of the feet, would nourish the Pisces aspect of our birth chart – which is kind of cool. But are Pisces types more prone to foot paranoia? Foot everything?

Thoughts and Tips please!

my oldest son is Piscean with his Moon in Virgo and Aquarius rising. one of the main milestones for a male baby is finding his genitals.. not for him. he found his feet. couldn’t care less about what was between his legs. my younger son (Libran, Aquarius Moon, Aries rising) found his penis and has yet to stop playing with it.. he’s nearly 5 now.. doubt he ever will. ahem! must digress. anywhoooo, #1 is aaaaaall about feet. he was always wearing my shoes as a bub (caught him in my Demonia heeled boots the other day, actually..) and when… Read more »

Pisces rising and Saturn and chiron in pisces 12th house, I love my feet, especially since I did a reflexology course in 1993 and understood the whole connection between the feet and the rest of the body. As a pilates/yoga instructor, I can talk for hours about how important the feet are and how we neglect them because they are all the way down at the end of our legs.

my partner has pisces moon and he has nice-looking feet – i like them. he had ingrown toenails all his life til we started dating and i have taken care of his feet. it may sound odd to some but i like taking care of them, and they are so much happier. he loooves foot rubs, and thinks reflexology is okay even though it sort-of-almost fits into the “woo woo” category of things which he abhors.

I’m a Sun in Pisces and despite years of torture and neglect as a result of my love affair with sky-high pumps (the only alternative to which I own is a pair of Doc Martin workboots) my feet still get complements from whomever happens to see them. I’ve had boyfriends beg to massage my feet and I’ve been offered money to allow my feet to be “worshiped.” I seem to bring out the inner foot fetishist even in guys who say they were never into that before. Oddly enough though, I don’t really like having my feet touched. P.s. For… Read more »

Pisces rising. Super sensitive feet. If my shoes are in any way uncomfortable there’s hell to pay. I cannot focus on anything other than when the hell can I remove these instruments of torture from my precious feet. Oh to be able to go barefoot 24/7, 365 days a year.
Also foot massage, maybe under the right circumstances. Pedicure, hell no! How anyone can find a stranger brandishing sharp tools on their toes relaxing I will never know.

Pisces sun and mercury here. My feet look fine, but they’re very sensitive. New shoes are always torture for the first week as they blister so easily. Even the softest most inoffensive pair of flip flops on holidays can make a week in the sun a challenge. I’m also very fussy about anyone not touching my feet. Can’t fathom how anyone could ever pay someone for a foot massage or a pedicure – my idea of utter torture!!

Mercury, Venus, and Saturn conjunction in Pisces. My Sun is in Aquarius just 4 degrees away. ALL in first house. Before I abused my feet with marching band I thought I could do foot modeling! But alas, the endless hours on the field made my feet a little more worn. I still gaze at my feet occasionally thinking how I’m thankful for my pretty feet. 🙂

Does anyone get serious cramps in their feet? I get foot cramps that can last up to 15 mins. Have tried more magnesium, but that seems to increase rather than decrease cramps.

Pisces Sun conjunct Mercury in 6th house.

I only wear flat shoes, because I look like a hooker in high heels 🙂 I like feeling comfortable, and being able to run/move if I want to.

My feet are stunning (and extremely sensitive) if I have to say so myself! I refuse to go to a nail bar on basis of fumes alone.

Yes to foot massages for sure!

Have you tried the tennis ball / spiky ball thing? Roll one under your feet, see how that goes. It might be a fascia issue.

Pisces rising with Chiron in the first house. I thought my feet were pretty once in my halcyon youth until a friend (Aquarius, say no more) laughingly remarked on how ugly they were and those rose-coloured glasses fell right off. Oh Neptune. Yes flat feet and splayed toes. No, no amount of barefoot walking and yoga or the weird exercises the doctor gave me raised those arches. Extremely sensitive though; clothing them is challenging. Adore heels but …meh. It’s too hard. In sandals, my toes splay out as if looking for escape. I like to take care of my strange… Read more »

Hmm.., I’m a Leo girl with Aquarius moon and rising but have hideous feet.. Get a stoney silence when I remove my shoes.. – I notice the shock. Yep in a nut shell very manly hobbit feet. I wonder now if I’m Pisces rising…
Also have everything imaginable wrong with them. My mum said I inherited all the problems from both sides of the family.. Ditto to the above, I hear you.
Feet – they get me around.

Feet? Please. I’m Pisces Sun/Moon conjunct (3rd house) but my Sagg rising might? be more responsible for the fact that I don’t give a hoot about anyone’s feet, beyond the pain mine often cause me. Ok, and I do have a little bit of shame. Rough soles, a bad nail, flat feet, prolapse something or other, plantar fascitis… supposed to wear my custom orthotics. Stopped long ago but am still sporty. Can’t run anymore, though. To me, pedicures represent the nadir of aesthetics (as well as utility) and the height of ugly and privIleged shallowness, and high heels are for… Read more »

I think Pisceans spend time looking after their feet, and are maybe more prone to foot problems, e.g. corns, ingrown toenails. I am fish rising and really suffer in that manner. Also I LOVE shoes and am mad about stylish, unique yet COMFORTABLE shoes. It’s a constant quest. If the shoes are out, the whole outfit is out in my opinion.

Haha! Yes, perhaps! I recently had a convo with a Pisces Sun friend who said she had the ugliest feet. Now, I’ve seen her feet & they’re not by any means but to her they are. She too has fallen arches. I’m Pisces Rising & feet are totally on my radar. I love shoes & have to restrain myself from buying them. Having said that i only wear a few pairs at a time. My feet look weird to me yet I’m told they’re not. I have size 11 hooves & I’m a little shy about that. It’s hard to… Read more »

I can vouch for this. I have a stellium in pisces, pisces moon…in the first house.
I have exquisite feet.
No one else in the family has them.
on poor body image days, I console myself….with my feet.
people with foot fetishes repel me. Ugh. NO.
Shame, as I could make a lot of money.
I like a quality pair of shoes. Don’t need a lot, not into heels. Must be the cappy rising.

I do have lovely feet. I’ve often thought of having beautiful feet kind of like having a beautiful…uh…kneecap. I dunno, what’s the point?? Not like my face is freakish, but I often wish the low-maintenance feet translated into a break-out free, low maintenance visage. I do have some issues with wearing heels. My feet might have stayed nice due to refusing to jam them into stilettos after 1 too many painful walks. So for now, they’re beautiful in flip flops or flats. … I kind of like weird, unconventionally attractive feet actually. They’re cute, if I like the rest of… Read more »

I totally get this. Pisces Rising here.. and my preferred way to unwind is to get a foot massage. Whenever I’m stressed/restless, there’s really nothing that quite puts me at ease as a foot-massage. And I have been told I have really ‘cute and dainty’ feet. Also, when it’s summer time I really don’t care much for shoes. I’m all about the hippie-pants and barefooting it everywhere. I love sinking my toes into sand and grass. I have my stint with heels and I’m a boot fan – but when I’m wearing stilettos the idea is more to get from… Read more »

Sun in Pisces and I’ve broken both ankles and was asked by my high school coach if I was flat footed because of the way I run. My sister used to tease me of my “ski feet” because they’re so long and narrow compared to my average height.

Funny thing is, I abhor professional pedicures because my feet are so sensitive. It’s an unbearable tickling sensation when they scrub them to the point I ask them to stop, and then I’m in pain after they massage them.

Pisces rising/moon up in here. And my feet are simultaneously adorable and fallen-arched. IT’S ALL TRUE WHAT THEY SAY.

I took a great gentle yoga class in which we were advised to alternate curling our toes up tight and then stretching them out as wide as we can, back and forth like that for a few minutes every day. That’s supposed to have hugely beneficial overall health ramifications, all of which I forget.

(Can’t wait for Style Your Ascendant: Pisces, omg.)

Pisces Sun here with decently pretty feet despite years of point shoes and High heels from hell. I used to wear orthodics and arch supports in my clogs. If you know clogs you know they are made with ridiculous high arches but I still had to use supports. I do have a couple funky issues otherwise: the baby toe on one of my feet has been broken and torqued so many times that it points outward almost at a 90 degree angle when my feet are bare and once in while someone will mention it. It almost drags behind the… Read more »

Not a Pisces but Neptune conjuncts my Scorpio rising. My feet are okay, I guess. Since I started running I have dry heels; I just have to pay more attention to them now. They’ve always been sensitive. I’ve been told I have spider toes; not sure that’s a good thing.

My 19 yr old daughter is Pisces Sun. She has the cutest feet (even at size 10) and does occasionally indulge in the super high heels. As she’s already 5’11” she also likes to stomp around in them making Godzilla noises. “I will crush my enemies! RAWR!!” LOL!

I have one pair Doc Martens that I wear 99% of the time (which replaced my old Docs)…I don’t EVER wear flats, heels, wedges, anything besides boots. People do associate me with my foot ware. If I don’t have time to lace up 36 eyelets, I just walk around barefoot. Anywhere, as long as I’m not in a store. But the minute I feel that someone is looking at my feet, I make any attempt to hide them. I hate people touching my feet as well. Nothing medically wrong with them, I just don’t feel they’re elegant or pretty. Stellium… Read more »

My secret to pretty and more importantly strong and healthy feet that are literally the things grounding my dreamy Piceses sun/moon-ness to the Earth: 1. Pumice your feet every time you shower. I’ve been doing it for 15 years and it takes about 30 seconds. A pedicurist told me never to waste money on a pedicure again because my feet were the smoothest she’d seen in 20 years. Paint your own toenails if you like, eco-friendly polish FTW. 2. Join the barefoot shoe movement. Your arches will be ridiculously high and strong. I can stick most tricky yoga balances on… Read more »

Ha! I’m Pisces Rising and have two flat feet, a collapsed arch, a bunion, six claw toes, multiple calluses, and currently one missing big-toe-toenail from boot bang. Pretty sure for many people that description alone causes a few shudders. But no hint of foot paranoia here – they do the job they’re supposed to! ?

As a great fan of Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton and their star crossed love, its worth noting that the ‘most beautiful woman in the world’ insisted on wearing stilettos despite being advised not too, and later in life was mortified by the fact that hers would swell to size11 due to oedema. She was a Piscean to extreme, no wonder Rich nicknamed her Ocean

I think one thing Pisces is very good at is being nonjudgmental – if we are critical of our body, then we are not practicing self-acceptance. Everybody has body insecurities; largely due the illusion of “perfection” perpetuated by Hollywood/the media/the fashion industry. It’s a fantasy; that’s all it is. I honestly think this is a side-effect from the routine consumption of “glamour”, AKA the faerie dust magazines, commercials, etc. are always throwing in our eyes to distort our vision of what beauty “should” be. That kind of “reality” with perfect lighting, ideal makeup, and comparatively infinite resources to make something… Read more »

I also will not eat a fish. Or a crustacean. Or a mollusc. Or a reptile. So not only is it that the fish foot bath things always look filthy, I can’t handle the thought of touching the fish. I heard once that they are never fed anything else and they only live on the flesh of every person who had been in there. That is too weird zombie shit for me, so they can’t come into my aura. Energetic fuqery.

Pisces here. I am told that I have nice feet. I adore high heels but rarely buy them mostly because I have bajillions but not the social life to match, but also because SO MANY of them are hideous and barely contact the foot between the heel and the ball of your foot. Also have a phobia of developing bunions, I didn’t even know what those were until relatively recently. (Basically, tight fitting shoes across the toes are the worst contributor followed by constant pressure on ball of foot via high heels. Then genetic predisposition.)

I am barefoot as often as possible. Due to decades of physical activity, I have leathery pads on the soles of my feet, like a cat. High arches, quick reflexes, but tend to run cold at the extremeties. Sun/Mercury conjoined in Pisces, Leo rising & moon in 1st house.

As far as feet go, mine are pretty basic. High arches, but average size (always slim pickings for shoes because of this). I spent every summer of childhood out in the country, barefoot, and my feet would develop these sorts of pads on the bottoms of them, haha. Hobbit feet! I thought it was cool though.

No problem). He washes his shoes all the time (At least once a week- I’ve never washed shoes? What is this fishcraft?) and always leaves them to dry on my god-damned bath towel.

My feet are fine, nothing special one way or the other I think. Callouses, yeah, but I run. (Pisces Sun and Mercury.) My arches are high. They ARE super sensitive to my shoes, though.

Agree in part as Pisces Sun and Mercury. My feet are actually wider than they are long, size 6 (similar to Kurt Vonnegut’s thingy, which he described as one inch long, three inches in diameter, a doughnut effectively). My second toe is shorter than my big toe which is unusual. Cannot wear heels as it is instant pain, preferred shoes are thongs. Feel inadequate seeing the barrage of Scholl advertising at the moment, as my feet are the complete opposite of the long elegant pedicured feet in those ads, although my poor little feet would be admired in Middle Earth.
