7 Ways Of Telling When A Pisces Man Is Hurt (What To Do)

by Sonya Schwartz

Are you wondering whether you’ve hurt a Pisces man’s feelings?

This is one of the most sensitive signs of the Zodiac, but perhaps you’re wondering if you’ve really upset him? 

If so, this is the guide for you. 

It reveals the 7 clearcut signs that a Pisces man is deeply hurt. 

However, before I reveal these, it’s important you read the next few sentences carefully. 

Recently, I discovered a powerful aspect of male psychology, which has a huge impact on how men feel about the women in their life. 

When activated, it releases intense feelings of pride, stature and self-worth within a man. Naturally, he begins to form a close bond with women who make him feel like this. 

This is a remarkably consistent psychological shortcut.

Once I discovered how to activate it, my relationships with men became more passionate and fulfilling (you can learn by reading my personal story). 

Whether you’re trying to attract a new man or having troubles with an existing partner, this is a great skill to learn.

The crazy thing is: so few people seem to be aware of this trigger. Click to read the story of how I discovered it >>. 

The guide below will reveal where you stand with the Pisces in your life.

The Sign Of Pisces and Their Characteristics 

Pisces belongs to the Water Signs. This means it possesses the following positive qualities:

  • Compassion
  • Humility
  • Empathy
  • Sensitivity
  • Spiritual awareness
  • Philosophical
  • Insight
  • Healing potential

However, it’s not all good. Pisces also tend to share these negative traits:

  • Timid
  • Weak-willed
  • Lazy
  • Passive-aggressive
  • Hesitant nature
  • Over-sensitive
  • Prone to lying
  • Masochistic 
  • Susceptible to addiction

The difference between Pisces and other Water signs is that Pisces feels other people’s emotions on deeply spiritual levels. They can empathize, they’re acutely aware of what’s going on around them. In fact, some are so intuitive they can forge careers as psychics 

In Astrology

Sign of Pisces is the two fishes. Anything that comes in pairs usually represents the two opposites of each other. Think of yin and yang when it comes to Pisces. They both compliment yet oppose one another.

The two fishes are capable of living in two different worlds. For example, heaven and hell, the conscious and unconscious mind. 

Pisces is ruled by Neptune. It’s counseled by this ancient god of the sea. Neptune rules the oceans and can be as turbulent and unpredictable as the waves.  

However, Neptune’s also known to daydream and fantasize. Those born under this mystic gas giant are prone to fanciful ideas and abstract thinking.

Those born with a ruling planet of Neptune can benefit from this giant’s great wisdom. As such they often feel like they’re ‘old souls’. 

12th and final sign of the Zodiac. By the time we get to Pisces we have learned everything we need to progress through life. 

Pisces wants to attain wisdom, then use this knowledge to understand the spiritual journey we are all on. So, you could call our typical Pisces an enlightened soul.

So that’s the Zodiac sign, now we know him more, let's explore what happens when a Pisces man is hurt. 

7 Ways You Can Tell When A Pisces Man Is Hurt

7 Ways You Can Tell When A Pisces Man Is hurt

1. He’ll Disappear.

Remember I told you that Pisces man feels every emotion? This can be incredibly overwhelming and stressful. So what does our Pisces guy do? He goes off, he finds a quiet space so he can think about his next move. He’ll do this when he’s fallen head over heels in love with someone and they have hurt him. 

2. He’ll Ignore You.

Pisces men in love are both spiritual and empathic souls. So you would think they would be able to find the words to let you know they are hurting. But ironically, they don’t. This is partly down to their fear of confrontation, but also because of their acute sensitivity.

Pisces know what it feels like to be hurt. More to the point, they also know what you’re feeling when you are hurt. And Pisces man cannot bear this. 

So if there’s something wrong, Pisces will be more likely to give you the silent treatment, rather than tell you why he’s hurt. 

3. He’ll Act Passive-Aggressive.

Again, we are returning to the fact that Pisces males will do anything to avoid a confrontation. But there’s another reason why he will start acting passive-aggressively, and that’s because he can’t say hurtful things to you.  

4. He’ll Wallow In Self-Pity.

Unfortunately, Pisces men have a tendency to feel very sorry for themselves. Why? Because they are prone to sensitivity and are highly in tune with their inner feelings.

This makes them overreact and tend to go overboard with any type of reaction to a situation, but especially one that involves introspection. 

5. He’ll Have A Tantrum.

Sure, Pisces men are calm, sensitive and caring souls. However, upset them enough and this calm nature will explode. 

Imagine calm seas, minutes before a tsunami hits the shore. Now, here comes Pisces man; full of energy, emotion, and rage. Or think about how it stings when saltwater gets into a wound. 

Pisces are not known for being confrontational. However, they do have a tendency to hold onto pent up anger until it turns into an uncontrollable rage. 

6. He’ll Say The Worst Possible Things To Hurt You.

When Pisces man’s hurt he wants to lash out and hurt you as much as his feelings are damaged. Now, Pisces are not typically physically aggressive but remember, they are highly intuitive. Consequently, they know exactly what to say to hurt you the most. 

They use their tongue like a sword, slicing your heart in two. How deep does this anger go? Well, ask yourself, how deep is the deepest trough in the ocean? Pisces anger can be bottomless, dark, cold and lonely.  

7. He’ll Want Revenge.

Surely that innocent pair of fishes wouldn’t hurt a soul? Well, imagine two piranhas, with flashing teeth in an eating frenzy. Yes, Pisces men can go through several stages of hurt before they lash out in this manner. 

Taking revenge doesn’t come as naturally to Pisces as say Scorpio males, who live to exact revenge on their enemies, or Aquarius man who never forgets a slight. But hurt Pisces man’s feelings enough times - he’ll come after you.

So that’s what happens when Pisces man’s hurt, but what hurts him in the first place? 

6 Things That Hurt A Pisces Man

6 Things That Hurt A Pisces Man

1. Over-Sensitive Nature

Remember I talked about Pisces and their incredibly sensitive nature? Well, sometimes they can overreact to things you might have said or done. 

For example, minor criticisms regarding their work will be perceived as a huge slight on their character. You might not even know you’ve upset them. 

To you, being critiqued just happens to be a natural part of the work process. But Pisces man won’t see it like this. You are literally sticking a knife in his heart, twisting it around, drawing it out and licking the blood off the blade. I know, dramatic!

2. You Don’t Make Them Feel Special

That over-sensitive nature of a Pisces male means that, on one hand, they see the world through rose-tinted glasses. Everything’s a miracle to them, life’s an endless wonder of beauty and balance. Here’s your Pisces man in love. 

But on the other hand, they expect you to not only understand but share their wonderment. Let me give you some examples; for Pisces, every time they get together with their partner it’s another amazing chance to tell them they love them, or to do something thoughtful for them. Do you see where I’m going?

While the rest of us go to work and come home tired, fall onto the couch and have a nap, Pisces male has been thinking up ways to make us feel extra special and wanted. 

He doesn’t understand that the normal humdrum of life gets in the way of everyone’s plans. That normal humdrum life’s what a lot of people sign up to, and we’re happy with it. 

3. People That Lie To Them

Pisces man is intuitive and sensitive to the emotions of other people. Therefore, it’s highly likely that he’ll know in a microsecond if you are lying to him.

Nothing hurts Pisces man more than a partner who’s deceitful. Why? Because Pisces man feels these emotions on a deeply spiritual level.  

The other thing about Pisces that makes them more susceptible to feeling hurt - Pisces are natural healers. It doesn’t occur to them to offer anything but love and support. It’s their nature. 

4. You Are Too Honest With Them

Now, you could say we have a bit of a paradox where Pisces men are concerned and I’ll tell you why. Pisces might be sensitive and caring but they can also be brutally honest, especially with their partners in a loving relationship.

So, unless you’ve seriously upset your Pisces man, his honesty always comes from a good place. It’s not natural for him to hurt someone he dearly loves. 

The other thing to take into account - Pisces have been there, done that, they’ve lived the life. They are at the end of their spiritual journey and feel impelled to share their great wisdom. 

The problem is that they can come across as a bit patronizing and be too truthful. We all tell little white lies to spare our loved one’s feelings. But not Pisces. He’s got too much to tell us. 

Now with all this in mind, you’d think Pisces would be open to a little honesty and home truths. Oh no. It doesn’t work both ways with this guy. He knows that what he says comes from love and wisdom, but he’s too fragile to see it when it’s applied to him. 

5. You Don’t Share Their Dreams

Pisces love nothing more than daydreaming about future possibilities. What’s the problem with daydreaming I hear you say? They can lose focus on real-life and waste time with their heads in the clouds.

It can be quite frustrating dealing with a dreamer. Especially if you are the kind of person that’s a doer, one that likes to take action and get things done. 

When Pisces enters into a relationship they have a pathological need to share their dreams and aspirations with their partner. It connects them, it bonds them and creates this deeper understanding between them. 

Pisces see the world differently from us. They can talk about the wonderful symmetry of snowflakes or why the sky turns red sometimes. They’ll draw you into this world and expect you to speak their language. 

But rail against a Pisces man and his fantasies then expect him to show you he’s hurt. 

6. You Don’t Need Them

Some male signs of the Zodiac love an independent woman. In fact, it’s what attracts them in the first place. Take our typical Aries man; he needs someone to follow him on his journey as he leads us through life’s journeys. 

Now, remember, Pisces lies at the end of the Zodiac. So in effect, of all the signs of the Zodiac, it’s Pisces that knows life’s lessons. As such, Pisces males are drawn to those that need their help. 

They are also natural healers and love nothing more than to support and nurse their partners. And don’t forget, these are sensitive souls. The last thing they need is some independent women trampling all over their offers of assistance. 

Final Thoughts

Pisces can be sensitive or brutal, shy or forthright, over-attentive or distant. In other words, these creatures are as complex as the universe. It’s up to you whether you want to join them on this journey.
