The Pisces Man In Love

collage image of handsome pisces man

The Pisces man in love can be difficult to distinguish from the Pisces man who’s just, well, playing. They trade in mystery and contradiction. Absence is an aphrodisiac to them, and they think they’re doing you a favor by being similarly elusive. This dilemma and the reply illustrate just this.

Dear Mystic,

As always your horoscopes are spot on but today was so spot on that it’s scary. So just before reading your scope, I decided to be proactive with the seethe and up the self-care because I have to face the ex-husband in court this week. And yes I recently met a promising love interest who has indeed gone a.w.o.l (hardly surprising as he is a Pisces and they do disappear a lot)

My question is what to do? I accept this is the nature of the Pisces and have no desire to change him, but I don’t know how to deal with this situation. The ex-husband was a Pisces too lol. They are my Achilles heel.

Thank you,

Troubled Taurus

PS: The seethe has simmered for now and turned into a form of silent resolve to withdraw and carry on stoically.

Dear Troubled Taurus,

Thank you regarding the horoscopes! The Pisces man in love – or not – operates on a different time system. They’re furious when you’re clingy or crowding them and sad when you don’t return their calls within ten seconds.

As for how to deal with “the situation” – it depends on what you want. First of all, consider not accepting this as their nature. Differentiate between rude, non-respectful selfish conduct and the guy’s temperament. If it is a legitimate relationship, demand a baseline level of showing up for it. If you’re dabbling in digital dating post-divorce, accept that men of all zodiac signs are prone to ghosting.

Taurus and Pisces are often extremely attracted to one another – Pisces enchants Taurus and Taurus turns Pisces on with sensual-security vibes. But you’re different modalities or operating styles.

To Get Rid Of A Pisces Man, Talk About The Past A Lot

If you want to lure in this person for something resembling a pair bond, stay very still and let them dart around the place like an erratic moth. High-beam your aura and don’t let his unpredictability affect your composure. Let the further commitment seem like their idea.

Pisces people like questions about their dreams and whether or not they’ve seen a U.F.O. far more than they like a direct discussion. If you want to get rid of him fast: ask him a question about his past. Pisceans are allergic to any discussion about their history. They don’t have a linear view of it but see it as more of a cinematic montage, loosely grouped into themes.

What does everyone else think?

..meanwhile here in Chrysalis World, the return of the Weatherbeaten Virgo. Fuq, how does this happen? I blocked his email AND his phone number, only to find a message had got through to my voicemail from his blocked number. How does that happen?? Perhaps I need cosmic tech support lol

8th house

maybe he realised you’ve blocked him and used a different number?


That’s quite sneaky behaviour for a virgo tho..
Things ended quite badly with him didn’t they?
Even if he’s pursuing you, you’re not obliged to reply.
I’m sure he knows why you initiated no contact.
if he is calling from another phone then he knows you don’t want to talk to him.
Sounds a bit aggressive no?
hope you’re well Chryss


Hmmm, I’d call your service provider tomorrow and have a word about blocking numbers.
That shouldn’t happen.


Thanks hon’ I will call them. No idea how it happened. It ended horribly with him, very nasty pass-agg type in the end. Ugh. But, I have been thinking a lot about him lately. In odd ways I miss him. Perhaps it’s the familiarity with a fuqued dynamic. It’s a very new way of relating with the Triple Toro so I am learning as I go.
Maybe Neptune on my Merc called him in lol


Sun, Saturn, and Venus in Pisces. Ascendant, Jupiter, North Node and Pluto in Scorpio <3

Slippery is an understatement but it is so, so NECESSARY for my mental stability. I often find I have no explanation, though. (Not to be confused with flakey)

Sometimes I reappear, sometimes I don't.
Sometimes gradually, other times abruptly.

The only constant in my life is my super Aquarian bff <3


Pisceans are highly sensitive to pressure, and sometimes resistant to stability because it threatens flow. I agree – just tend to yourself lovley taurean self during mars retro (in your opposing sign).

My pisces AC/jupiter and mutable axis (IC/DC/MC) is getting brutalized by saturn, chiron, neptune and even jupiter and the SN so perhaps your pisces is getting hit hard right now. Mutables need a lot of leeway at the moment (and always, but it’s just worse right now, haha).


Oh…. how… pertinent. Thanks Mystic and Troubled Taurus, and best of luck 🙂


I know one fish who doesn’t like it when Venus in Aquarius flees! Ha!


As a sun-moon-merc aqua currently involved with a Pisces, I’d say that MM’s description is true of both signs but with different flavors — “Pisces is pissed off when you’re too close, clingy and crowding them (aka normal human behavior) but also infuriated when you don’t return their calls within 10 seconds because Pisces has something they need to tell you now. They also run on a different time system and operate in parallel dimensions, so don’t take this personally. There may not be a linear narrative for this thing but that does not mean it is not still “promising.””… Read more »


I am an Aqua sun/Rising but honestly, Venus in Aqua totally perplexes me. If someone with this placement could shed light for me on why they sometimes freeze ppl out, that would be lovely.

(The one I’m particularly confused by has Sun in Cap, Moon in Gem and Mars in Cap, all in nice trine aspects to other planets..but with this attitude!)

Fruit Bat

I personally will never chase another Pisces.


This pic is giving me serious Lydia Lunch “Queen of Siam” vibes.


After having several experiences of being happy with diabetic portions from partners (a diabetic portion could fill me for several months) followed by someone very special continuously disappearing and then coming back, to a point that it really impacted on my self worth because eventually they didn’t keep coming back… I’ve come to the conclusion I am worth more than that. If someone is going to disappear, and not communicate, that is a road I no longer wish to take. I am a communicator. I courageous in communication and can be vulnerable. I have come to the conclusion I need… Read more »


*feeling, not feeding…


Hear hear!


LOVE IT. Well said Mm


I think you’re absolutely right. I’m glad you called the difference between what you could live with and what you couldn’t. this is a really important thing once we suss our true needs and values in a relationship. Im a bit relieved that your tone is not one of blame… That person might be Numero Uno dreamboat dude/tte but if their M.O. is out of sync for whatever reason and they aren’t coming to the party then yep it’s only tears and recriminations or something, unfortunate I guess : / xxx

8th house

thanks for writing this Mm. I’m dealing with the “disappearing” thing at the moment and have come to the same conclusions.

You are spot on about all of it.

Mine is a multi Saggo


Yo OP I share your pain, except I am Aqua and my ‘Heels’ are Capricorns (I have 12th Capricrn stellium + 11th house Capricorn node, oyyyy). I am trying my hardest to learn from them but they make it so damn difficult! Having Ven and Mars in Cap means I always want them and they generally show an interest in me, but it always goes fuqing pear-shaped after just a handful of encounters. Ofc being Caps they don’t disappear; they DISDAIN – both you and all who know you. It’s hurtful, immature and gets them nowhere but that’s the Lo-Cap… Read more »


Eek meant to cite KOURTNEY Kardashian, with a ‘k’ natch.
Handing back my Libra Moon card, soz.

(I was interested to discover just now she has her moon in Cap 11th house, though..her sentiments = my Node lol)


So does having Venus and Mars in a sign (for me both are in Gemini) mean you are likely to attract or be attracted to that same sign? Hm that makes sense.


Not sure for sure, Kat..

In my experience, half of all my very serious infatuations were Capricorn Suns with other Cap planets as well. So it’s a 50% chance my love interest is Ven/Mars summoned 😉 but that’s just me.

I love Venus in Gem btw – the connoisseur flirts! X


just curious, what is the significance of 9th house cancer in this context?

Virgo Ellie

Sorry, this question is not slippery Piece based. Just curious, with Mercury and Mars retro does that mean don’t push changes in my career situation. Can’t get over the contacts I received today making me want to leave my job.


Mercury retro is over as of a week or two ago — Mars retro means don’t push intiating / aggressive stuff — but responding to people who have initiated contact with you is game, and I think you should jump on it.


Taurus sun here who also found this scope interesting. Does this also apply to Gemini with a Pisces moon? As in reel in, wait etc.


Crumbs of interestingness. Leading up the pretty path lined with flowers. Sparky dialogue. Humanity. Lightness : )


Got it


I mean they might have mars in Scorpio or something tho , so you know 🙂


As a pisces who knows (and loves!) many a taurean, give him / her a bit of mystery. Don’t make it all known. Nothing lures them (me!) back to the surface as much as the fun of not-knowing what’s next….


Hm…good advice


Totally! I am a Pisces girl currently trying to wriggle away and score some space from a Toro. He is great, but I need some mystery/magic/absence/space to keep it interesting and dynamic.


+1 from another Pisces. Also depends on how you define ‘promising love interest’. Is this 3 dates along, or 6 weeks of hot and heavy onnnnn plus a weekend away or something. Relativity, you see. Likewise, a.w.o.l. Not sure if you’re a chilled anything-goes Toro with a mutable stellium etc, or someone who prefers to schedule dinner dates 3 weeks in advance right down to meeting time & place, or something in between… Either way locking it / him down to a thing or things could be problematic or require a two-way “let’s chat so I can understand you better”… Read more »


I’ve never dated an exciting Taurus dude. I found them agonizingly slow moving and all they seem to want to achieve is a boring, stereotypical family life. I’ve stopped forever although I still find them incredibly super smart and sexxxy…


does she like the smell of destiny in the morning?


oh, and i didnt realise its a gd idea to only do the tarot once a month.
err… been doing them every day…lol…


haha, me too, sometimes several times a day 😀


liking the advice for taurus ( i rising ).
also awesome scorp scope for tomo.
good news finally! (long view, long view, i can cope with that )


Firstly, you describe new Pisces as promising .. So he’s not lovingly held between your hooves just yet, right ? I like the fishing analogy for Pisces. Small fish passing by your Venusian bait tend to first have a few nibbles, darting about for a while before they take the plunge and get hooked. Larger more robust fish will just take the bait and once hooked make a break for it. What does a good fisher person do ? Start reeling him in ? Nope, they let the larger ones make the break them reel them in a little, let… Read more »

Chill for Mars Retro and turn all that productive energy on YOURSELF.

Bugger the Pisces. Plenty more fish (lol) in the sea.
