That's the person who'll often skip meals just because they're doing something, and then realize with surprise that they haven't eaten all day, or possibly not even think of eating until someone reminds them. Or not pay any attention at all to their body unless they get sick, and then just want to get that inconvenient illness out of the way as soon as possible. (Many of us do that to some extent, but it's especially pronounced in Aquarius.)

If a person with prominent Aquarius isn't doing that, chalk it up to other chart factors that are more physical. Aquarius also has a certain emotional detachment. If it's a prominent sign for you, particularly moon sign, you might not be much in touch with your emotions, either. You might be very objective about things other people find highly emotional. You might not register strong emotion for yourself unless and until it's so strong you really can't ignore it.

Pisces is dissociative in another way. Pisces is very strongly in touch with emotion, extremely sensitive, but has no natural defense other than disappearing. All water signs are highly sensitive, but Cancer has its shell (security orientation) as a defense, and Scorpio has its sting (the vindictiveness and secretiveness Scorpio is known for). All the fish can do is swim away when things get too overwhelming. So, Pisces is very prone to disassociating from heavily emotional situations, which sometimes only the Pisces person perceives as heavily emotional.

Neptune also carries that disappearing tendency. So, if Neptune and/or Pisces is prominent in the chart, or Aquarius is, then we've got someone who's very prone to disassociating, in one way or another.
Thatís very interesting to read. I constantly get dissociative and tend to dive into ideas really deeply, sometimes I even feel how my sense of self changes with it, but always logically nevertheless. I am not really a huge fan of baseless ideas, airy-fairy ideas. Iím rather more afraid of them than pleased , tbh! I just get really obsessive with digging deeper and deeper into truth. Itís definitely been a double edged sword for me. Coincidentally, Iíve got a stationary Mercury in the 9th house cusp in Pisces and Sun trining Pluto. Iíve a Mars in Scorpio opposing Saturn in Taurus. I guess that both would explain my need for control and structure coupled with wanting to dive into ideas really deep. To be honest, it has just been getting more accentuated these past few years considering Neptune has been conjoining my Mercury in Pisces by transit . To be honest Iíve gotten spiritual but I also try to be very keenly aware of self-deception. Self-deception makes me irritated.
