Being a Pisces born on March 4th, you are well known for your intuitive, self-sacrificing and sensitive personality. At times you may feel psychic, but this is only because of your innate ability to sense the moods and thoughts of others. While your ability to just “know” how someone is feeling is impressive, but your friends and family are more appreciative of your selfless nature. You are an ideal example of a person that will do anything for anyone. In all aspects of life, your sensitivity is an asset.
