Learning to protect your sponge-like nature...Ordinarily, empathy is a good thing. You should know - Pisces has it by the bucketful!
But it can also be draining, especially for you because of the duality of your sign's symbol, two fish opposed to one another.
You know how you feel when you see someone being chewed out. You aren't the one being reamed, but you still feel it in your gut!
That secondhand stress can actually be bad for you. The knot in your stomach or sense of low-grade anxiety can increase your blood pressure and even contribute to heart disease!
To protect yourself, meditate, exercise, or learn a few relaxation techniques that you can draw upon when the need arises.
