Being a Pisces born on March 8th, you are well known for your intuition, sensitivity and self-sacrificing nature. Your intuition helps to guide you through all aspects of life, but especially social situations. While others struggle to pick up on emotional cues, your ability to read a person’s feelings can be considered nearly psychic. These sensitive qualities have earned you many friends, but it is your selfless nature that makes you truly special. Your friends and family can recall numerous times when you put their needs far above your own.
