5 Reasons Why Being A Pisces Is The Best

5 Reasons Why Being A Pisces Is The Best

Pisces are such a unique and often misunderstood sign.

I relate so much to my zodiac sign. It is a literal representation of me. Pisces are such a unique and often misunderstood sign, which is why I want to clear things up. Being a Pisces is so much fun. We are so very complex and are very strong but we have a delicate side. Here are several ways Pisces are awesome but also misinterpreted.

1. We are lazy but we DO get things done.

I am one of the most laziest people alive. I'm being honest, I love my bed. One thing people forget to think about is that lazy people are so lazy that we look for the quickest best way to get things done. Pisces are creative which gives us unique GOOD ideas to get things done as quickly as physically possible so we can be lazy once more.

2. We are very trusting but we also know when to stop.

I can't tell you how many people I've been burned by but that's like most people. I can tell you I give people too many chances and I'm unsure if that's all me or my astrological personality peeking out. In our friendships, Pisces tend to put our family and friends first, even above yourselves. We trust these people to do the same thing for us and be there in our time of need. We tend to not realize that people aren't all like us and we get hurt but we do quickly realize that we don't want to keep getting hurt, which means we don'y put ourselves in the same situation. We are smarter than that.

3. We blindly love without a care in the world.

This one is so false about Pisces. It's wild and unproven. We take our time with love, especially if someone has hurt us. We don'y just fall in love with every person. We are romantics but we also understand that love is fickle and no one can guess the future. We care so much about people that we choose our lovers very carefully. We don'y have bad taste in men because we are Pisces. Some of us just don't have good luck or our geographical location is bad. I have had bad luck with a man because he was a bad man. My personality doesn't dictate that, though I wish it could, I'd have my own personal alarm for douche bags.

4. We won't ever be successful or make good money.

This one gets to me. We can only fall into creative jobs and we won't be good leaders. This idea of the Pisces is so wrong, I take charge because I like getting things done. Leadership isn't a personality trait that is genetic to me but rather it is chosen. Sometimes I like to take charge, others I like to sit back and let someone else take the reins. I am an independent worker for sure, which some could say makes me less leader and highly antisocial but many leaders are proven to be introverts rather than extroverts. Pisces have many excellent careers because we are talented and smart. We are not the least likely to be wealthy either. Sagittarius is, which is surprising. Pisces have a long history of being successful because of unique mindset and creative ideas.

5. We think we are psychic.

Well, we kinda are. We are the most spiritually connected sign. We have enhanced intuitive abilities. I know this for a fact because I can predict when something bad is going to happen when relating to me. It'd be cool if we had these crazy powers to predict everyone's futures and I'm sure there are ways to open the third eye but I can tell you my sense roar and my stomach twists when I start to realize something isn't quite right. It's all my instincts telling me to get out and hep myself. I wish I knew what it was that has saved my life so many times but honestly, it's just a Pisces thing and if yo aren't Pisces I just don't think you can understand what we mean. I have a story that might clear up what we mean when we say we have "a feeling". I was sick one day when I was about 10 or 11. The school sent me home and my mom came to pick me up, taking me home. I stayed on the couch napping all day. My stomach twisting more painfully the later it got. I must've fell asleep at some point because when I woke up there was yelling. My stomach hurt so badly I was crying. My mom took me to my room and went back downstairs he Armand my stepdad's fight continued. I was just walking down the stairs, ready to go to the hospital when I heard screaming and a huge crash. My stomach all of a sudden felt better. The pain and twisting gone in an instant. My brother came running up to me handing me the phone to call the police. Long story short my mom ear drum was broken from my stepdad beating her. This is one of many stories where I felt this and now I can recognize it and try to prevent bad things from happening. Call it instincts or psychic, whatever you want, but I knew when bad things were going to happen.

We just feel things differently. We are also highly empathetic. I can sense other emotions on a terrifying level. I know exactly what people are feeling by just being near them. It's not a pleasurable thing.

Pisces are so wonderfully different and often misrepresented within the media. I identify strongly with the truthful faucets of the astrological sign. Pisces are kind, smart, empathetic, gentle and very in touch with nature. Pisces are also weird, sensitive, compulsive, and lazy. We have good and bad qualities but the qualities must be accurately depicted. I love being a Pisces and I wouldn't want to be any other sign!

A Poem To Art Saving Us

Art is what you need it to be.

“Youth is wasted on the young”, I know, and I am trying. So desperately to ensure that my odyssey is a chest of memories that will never diminish.

I find myself staring at the bottom of empty coffee mugs, caught between the backwash of coffee tainted oxygen molecules and morning delays. These cells are nothing but pixilated facades.

Nietzsche says that art does not need to be truth, but isn’t that what it is all about? Is that not what makes it so raw? Making the intangible, tangible? But the only thing true of art is that art saves us. And if that means that what art is made of is not truth; that art is the outcome of a survival mechanism to compose and convince ourselves to feel something so that we do not fall into the black hole of nihilism then so be it.

Because I won’t know any other way. All I know is that I am breathing and thinking and just being.

It is kind of ironic that we depend on each other’s defense mechanisms to live, to prove that our existence isn’t just some fucked evolutionary step. We are so desperate and so in need to find ourselves, to understand that we need to be here that we also begin to see ourselves in the art works. In the brush strokes of Van Gough; in the not so irregular and not so misplaced lines of Picasso’s works. This is both comforting and scary.

Some days it is hard to differentiate yourself from all the art that is surrounding you and I; sorting through all the pieces that are spread along the sunrises, book stores or through the numb vibrations of the rain. Art does not have to be true, but it does have to be a series of releases.

We spend our whole lives breathing in and attacking notes, but we always forget that we can breathe. That in our composition of life we can add our own breath marks. It is okay to release. To breathe in and to stop your tune when needed.

The 7 Best Pieces of Drag Race Lingo Ru-vealed

Werk it, queen!

Season Three of "RuPaul's Drag Race: All Stars" just wrapped last week, but season 10 of Drag Race is scheduled to premiere on March 22nd. You might’ve turned on your TV and thought, “what the heck are they talking about?”. Some of the lingo is confusing and unclear, so here’s a guide to just some of the key catchphrases.

1. The library/Being read

The name of the mini challenge is “Reading is Fundamental, in which queens take turns reading each other. When it’s their turn, they “enter the library”, which just means putting on goofy glasses. Reading is pretty much pointing out flaws but in a funny or over the top way.

2. Shade

Throwing shade is similar to reading someone, but I think of shade as usually more blunt, insulting and less clever.

3. Tea

Derives from the letter “T” standing for truth. Tea refers to gossip, news or information. Commonly used in the sense of “So, what’s the tea?”, which means “girl, what’s the gossip?”. It’s commonly combined with shade, as someone might say “No, tea, no shade, but…” which is a preface saying “no disrespect”. Conversely, someone might say “all tea, all shade” meaning that they know exactly how they sound and don’t care if you’re offended.

4. Fish

A queen is said to be looking fishy/serving fish when they closely resemble a woman. Some of the fishiest queens include Tatianna, Courtney Act, and Farrah Moan.

5. Back Rolls

An insult used in season 5 when Jade Jolie told Alyssa Edwards: “Girl, you had rolls all over the place in the back, it was disgusting!” To which Alyssa responded

6. Snatch Game

A parody of the 1960’s celebrity game show “The Match Game”. On the original show, contestants write in answers to questions, hoping to match the guest judge. Snatch Game operates in the same way, but the contestants have to impersonate a celebrity. This is a challenge that has taken place every season since the second one, and it’s probably the most highly anticipated. This is one of the challenges that really establishes the top queens, as they’re judged based off of likeness and humor. Celebrities that have been impersonated range from Dame Maggie Smith to Britney Spears, Judge Judy, Anna Nicole Smith, and even RuPaul.

7. Comedy vs. Pageant Queens

This is pretty much exactly what it sounds like. Some queens are more specialized in makeup, costumes, and overall pageantry. Others are more campy and over the top. Comedy queens are usually stronger in acting or comedy challenges, but pageant queens have the upper hand in design focused challenges.

So there ya have it, a short list of Drag Race terminology. I RuPaulogize if you got a little lost somewhere, but if you managed to make it through this article….
