Pisces is the dreamer of the zodiac. His personality and his nature are all about this aspect but there is some more to explore too. Let’s see what we need to know about Pisces, what Pisces’s spirit animal is, and how to use this spirit animal to live our best life.
What is Pisces’s spirit animal?
Pisces’s spirit animal is a seahorse. Pisces oscillates between reality and non-reality in maintaining their introspective nature; their journey between consciousness and unconscious dream states reveals much more about their intuitive, almost psychic nature. For this reason, Pisces can be difficult to coerce, so much so that some call them the chameleons of the zodiac and they have a lot in common with their spirit animal.
Pisces are okay with being called confused people, since there is a certain sense of insecurity in their hearts. They won’t be alone for long, as one of their primary goals is to help others. Pisces is compassionate, understanding, and will no doubt put the needs of others above their own. It is this kind of altruism that keeps these people moving forward. The frivolous side of their generous natures is that of the often-shy Pisces, and many take advantage of the goodness of their well-meaning souls.
The sign of Pisces is ruled by the planets Jupiter and Neptune. In ancient Roman mythology, Jupiter (the planet that rules Pisces from the beginning) was the king of the Gods, while Neptune was the god of the seas. When the planet Neptune was discovered in recent times, it was associated with the sign of Pisces.
The coupling of these two celestial bodies results in some exceptional energies that are directed to the Earth through Pisces. Those born under this sign are spiritually oriented and compassionate. They are understanding, and they easily feel the pain of others.
Sometimes, however, Pisces can have a hard time distinguishing reality from fantasy: they tend to get involved in their dreams and their views of the way things should go. As we are going to see, the seahorse, with its independent eyes, is the perfect spirit guide as it suggests some more guidance to Pisces, who often spends more time in their dreamy world.
Sometimes, in some cases, Pisces is well-versed in taking some time for themself, the best way to find their inner side once again. Many of the Pisces sign devote themselves to art and other creative jobs as if it were their main occupation, and they are very talented in these areas. As we have already said, the element associated with Pisces is water. Those born under this sign are easily linked to the emotional and unpredictable nature of it.
Pisces have many feelings, and they often feel misunderstood as well. They are formidable opponents but are, however, sensitive. They could cry a lot if circumstances demanded it. Despite this, they reveal themselves in their compassionate and imaginative nature and love to care for others.
They can also be quite romantic, dreaming of pleasant situations for their lover. This is in the hope that all kindness will be reciprocated, otherwise Pisces will surely change mood if it’s not reciprocated. Pisces is generally kind, easy-going, with a shy and reticent side. They are modest to the point of impracticability, often improving just to show their talents in painting or music. Easier (and even more fun) for Pisces is to live in their dreamy world.

The symbolism of this spirit animal explained
The Greeks and Romans believed that the seahorse was a tribute to the god Poseidon/Neptune and for this they considered it as a symbol of strength and power. Asian culture believed that seahorses were dragon types and therefore regarded them as a symbol of power related to good luck.
Some of the values associated with the seahorse are patience, protection, perspective, persistence, friendship, great perception, and generosity. The body of the seahorse is made in such a way that the movements are performed as in slow motion. For this reason, the seahorse relates to patience and happiness, as it is happy to be as it is, it is never in a hurry to move forward.
Another element to underline is the minimal development that the body of seahorses undergoes over time; in fact, the body of these creatures never changes from their birth. They are happy with how they are, and they don’t need to change; this can be a lesson for us, to learn to be happy with what we have and not always look for something different.
Also, in line with resistance to change, the seahorse can be a symbol of inflexibility and stubbornness.
On the other hand, seahorses are used to curling their tails around anything they can hang on to when in turbulent waters and this is a lesson that can be applied to ourselves as well: a lesson that teaches us to persist in reaching our goals, but always with attention, as we cannot be stubborn or inflexible to achieve them.
A particular aspect of this species is that the male often takes care of the typical tasks of the female; this is another element that can be a lesson in conquering gender equality.
If a seahorse approaches us, it is said that we feel a lack of protection in the face of the circumstances around us or, on the contrary, that we are building walls in a space where they are not needed. The body of this animal is a sign that sometimes we need to let our guard down or, conversely, that we are leaving our side too exposed for those who could easily hurt us.
Finally, referring to the list of values associated with this animal, it must be said that another of the meanings that can give us a valuable lesson is the idea of perception. This can be related, for example, to the shape of the eye: seahorses are able to move each eye independently. We can take all of this as a message that recommends that we always be aware of what surrounds us and of the different situations we may encounter.
And it doesn’t just mean that we need to physically look around with our eyes, but that, on a spiritual level, to achieve our goals, we need to find a better perspective in situations.
