Pisces are typically regarded as the most emotional zodiac signs. They are known to wear their heart on their sleeve, and they do their best to make sure that themselves and those around them are happy.
However, like all signs in the zodiac, Pisces isn’t all happy thoughts and roses. If you’ve ever been on the receiving end of a Pisces’s dark side, it may have left you wondering, “why are Pisces so cold”?
Why Are Pisces So Cold?
1. Pisces Are Introspective
Pisceans are daydreamers with a mind for the surreal and mystical. They are introspective by nature, which can cause others to find them either mysterious or cold and aloof.
When they don’t have time for personal introspection, they often find it difficult to deal with reality. Pisceans need to exist in their heads for a bit in order to function. If not, they can become moody and distant.
However, once you acknowledge this inner world, you’ll realize that Pisces are quite warm. They have a strong concern for others and hate to see those around them unhappy.
2. They Prefer To Hide Their Feelings
Adding to their need of introspection, Pisces don’t often like to share their feelings with others. Though they are emotional, they don’t like to upset others, so they will often keep their feelings to themselves.
This can come off as cold if you don’t know what’s going on in a Pisces’s head. In fact, it is usually quite the opposite.
Oftentimes, Pisceans can care too much, and since their inner world is so active, this can create a state of constant worry and shutdown.
Next time your Pisces friend is presenting a cold behavior, try giving them some encouragement to open up instead. However, don’t push too hard, or they may shut you out even further.
3. Pisces Are Mysterious
If you ever felt like you didn’t quite understand your Pisces friend, you’re not alone. As a water sign, Pisces are mysterious by nature, but their tendency to live in their own head makes them even more so.
Think of names like Kurt Cobain, Elizabeth Taylor, Glenn Close, and Min Yoon Gi (Suga from BTS). Each one of these famous Pisces is know for having an air of mystery about them. They are also known for their cold stares.
Pisces also possess many of the characteristics of the other signs of the zodiac. This can make it hard for others to figure them out, adding to the mystery.
4. Pisces Don’t Like Confrontation
Out of all the signs, Pisces people do not like to confront their problems, but not for the reasons you might think.
In the mind of a Pisces, confrontation has the potential to lead to the other person not liking them. This can often make a Pisces overreact and avoid the problem altogether.
While many may perceive this avoidance as a Pisces being cold or uncaring, it really comes back to the fact that they care too much.
5. They Like To Keep Things Serious
Even though Pisces are prone to daydreams and fantastical thoughts, all of that only happens on the inside. Instead, Pisces prefer to get a serious exterior.
Piscean’s seriousness comes from a desire to conceal the roller coaster of emotions that they are experiencing at all times. Many times, they have a fear of upsetting others or being hurt by others, so they prefer to keep their emotions to themselves.
Instead of seeing a Pisces wild with emotion, you will usually find them calm and collected. Though this may sometimes be taken as coldness or disinterest, it’s actually because they want to approach life in a peaceful way.
6. They Take Things Personally
Pisces are the most emotional of the zodiac, meaning they often take many things to heart. Though they may appear calm and relaxed, everything you say to them is being taken in and analyzed word for word.
When speaking with a Pisces, it’s best to choose your words carefully. Saying the wrong thing could be taken as a personal attack, and because they tend to keep things bottled up, a Pisces isn’t likely to tell you that they feel wronged.
Instead, a Pisces will take those feelings and hold a grudge. If you feel like a Pisces is being cold towards you, if may be because of something you said in the past.
7. They Are Naturally Artistic
As the dreamers of the Zodiac, Pisceans are extremely artistic with vivid imaginations. They tend to spend a lot of time in their own heads, dreaming up fantasy worlds or creating their next symphony.
Imagine Chopin sitting down to compose Nocturnes Op. 9 and you’d have the exact image of a Pisces.
Pisces love to imagine so much, in fact, that the sometimes forget the world around them. However, they aren’t always the best at sharing their creative side with other.
Many Pisces fear that they won’t be able to bring forth their creations in the same way that they live in their head. This can leave them appearing distant and aloof with nothing to show for it.
8. Pisces Are Excessively Romantic
The Pisces is a mutable water sign, meaning it is adaptable and emotional. They have a deep connection with the world around them and are constantly aware of how others are feeling.
Their mix of compassion and vivid imagination leaves Pisceans with an excessive desire romanticize real life situations. While they are the experts for creating swoon-worthy moments, they can easily switch it off if the mood isn’t right, or the person isn’t right.
If you are the object of their affection, they will rotate around you like you are the sun. On the flip side, they could bare you no mind or appear to be as cold as ice. Take no offense, they are probably just stuck in their own head planning their next big move.
9. Pisces Love To Blend In
Pisces have an uncanny ability to blend in to a crowd. As a water sign, adaptability is their strong suit. While this could turn them into a party animal in some situations, they could appear completely cold in others.
Remember, Pisceans are people-pleasers who want everyone to have a good time. If this means shutting off and blending into the background, then so be it.
10. Pisces Don’t Like Excepting Help
It’s a rare moment when you meet a Pisces willing to ask for a helping hand. Not only do Pisceans refuse to ask for help, but they hate to expect it too.
Pisces are people-pleasers, but they also have extremely high standards. For a Pisces, excepting help would feel not only like they were putting someone out, but they would be hyper critical of the help they were receiving.
So, while it may feel cold when a Pisces turns down your offer to help, they are really doing it in your best interest and theirs.
11. Pisces Are Wise
Pisces is the final sign of the zodiac and, therefore, is considered to hold the most wisdom. People born under the sign of Pisces tend to be gifted in various ways, some are even considered geniuses.
Einstein, for example, was a Pisces who devoted much of his life to the study of science, medicine, and philosophy.
However, wisdom often comes with a price. Many prefer to spend their time in intellectual solitude instead of social gatherings, which can sometimes rub people the wrong way.
If you know a Pisces, there are no doubt a few times that they have appeared cold and distant. Though this may come as a shock from your sensitive friend, there is probably more to it than you realize.
It’s best to remember that Pisces spend more time in their head than the real world. If anything, they would be concerned to hear that they offended you by their bout of distance.
