Pisces Rising people love to say that they’re low maintenance – but it’s a lie. Or, to be kinder, a phantom belief. This is the Ascendant of fabulosity. To the Pisces Rising person, their persona is a construct, a nebulous quantum arrangement of particles that they accelerate, decelerate or radically alter at will.
It has a high vibe “Deepak Chopra talking about possibility fields and ghosts of existence” expression and it’s exceptional for acting. It also inclines them to the “Exercise? Oh god no, I just eat French fries all the time…” genre of conversation.
George Clooney is one example: this is a person whose looks are a significant component of an extremely successful commercial brand. He is also 59, older even by Hollywood male standards, an age where to retain a physical ‘it’ factor would be down to money and discipline. But this double Taurus says he’s casual about it, probably doesn’t even glance in the mirror.
Gwyneth Paltrow recently popped up to talk up about her “self-care regime” of drinking whiskey in the bath and the model Adriana Lima is brilliant at low maintenance statements. You could argue that it’s a publicity tactic, an “I’m just like you” gambit. Candid reveals that you spent the morning in a boring meeting with your money people, discussing tax offsets for your Summer mansion, tend not to play too well with the mainstream fan base.
Pisces Rising People Are Tidal
And, when asked for your ‘beauty tips,’ should you say that the entire deal is a precision calibrated process with compulsory carb monitoring, a cosmetic surgeon who holds conferences with your osteopath to talk about your neck alignment, and skincare formulated for you by your board-certified dermatologist, with Retinol isolated from rare Geisha Peach blossoms that need to be flown over at a particular temperature? Or, you know, lie?
It makes commercial sense but there is something else going on with Pisces Rising people. No matter what their Sun Sign or other astrological influences, their Piscean Ascendant is like an aura of ocean. If you look at them without focussing, you can sense it, glimmering in the sunlight. It means they’re channels, drawing things to them by mysterious currents that they don’t understand – how could you?
Their attention is tidal by nature: high tide is when they love you and just want to lap at your shores all day, floating in whatever you need. Low tide and they’re gone. Withdrawn? There are only mudflats and sharp rocks left. The Pisces Rising ocean is swirling around another island, maybe a continent. They flow all over boundaries but if you want a psychic tsunami, go ahead and breach their walls.
So lying about being low maintenance makes sense when your psyche is boundless and appearing all-encompassing is part of your privacy strategy. Thoughts?
