Pisces is the mutable water sign of the zodiac. It can be likened to a warm, turquoise lagoon, twinkling in the sunshine or to a strong ocean current rising from the depth to break over a rocky shore. Mutable means changeable and water can change its form in many ways: rain, hail, snow, mist, frost, clouds, rainbows, warm pools and puddles. Thus Piscean feelings can change a dozen times a day.
Jupiter and Neptune rule the zodiac sign of Pisces. In astrology Jupiter is the planet of expansion, optimism and generosity. Neptune is the planet of dreams, sensitivity, the unconscious and the world of unreality. You are the twelfth sign of the zodiac Pisces and are represented by the fish. But, by two fish which swim in diametrically opposing directions and it would have to be said that this is a perfect description of you Pisces.
These pairs of opposites very much represent your Piscean mind versus heart, sacrifice opposing self-interest, idealism versus practicality and the list goes on.Pisces can accept the challenges of life and rise to the top, or can give in to the easy option and sink to the bottom. To be able to swim to the top the Pisces must find peace through beauty, music and harmony.
There is a deep inner longing to find the right balance between the two extremes. You will reach out in your idealism and draw others in need towards you and this is because your natural inclination is to help and enlighten anyone and everyone. Even if you can't find your own inner peace right now, you'll help others to find their own equanimity, peace and sublime love until it is your turn.
Money is not your prime motivation, but this doesn't mean you're not interested in it. To you money is a form of energy, a measure of your own activity and love to be used in helping others, even uplifting humanity in some way. Even in an ordinary day you are quick to see that someone needs help and you readily offer assistance. You are always on the lookout for opportunities to relieve the suffering of others.
If you are a Pisces woman it is likely you will have extraordinary imagination and wish to express that in every part of your life. Sometimes others will find it somewhat difficult to deal with you and you find it puzzling as to why others don't immediately understand your ideas. Your vision is probably just years ahead of its time so it is no wonder others may find you impractical.
You have well developed psychic energies and should always trust your intuition Pisces. You are tuned into others in such a way that supersedes the typical mental or verbal communication between humans. You are clairvoyant, channeling the highest spiritual truth for others during this life.
You are soft, sensitive and actually quite unafraid to explore what life offers you, even if you choose actions people and circumstances that convention frowns upon. You believe that to find your ideals it could involve exploring those things that tradition regards as taboo. But for all of this you would rather tread your own path than die wondering "what if".
People who exhibit the physical characteristics of Pisces generally look clumsier than they actually are. They give off a feeling of other-worldliness and usually have very sensitive, caring eyes. It is likely they will have a trusting eager look or a quality of empathy and non-judgment exclusive to those who truly understand human sorrows and failings.
Pisces needs to turn his/her private, mystical dream world of love and compassion into a reality as the only other option is a life of illusion and, ultimately a sense of failure. Many Pisceans work hard to improve the lot of humanity and others bring their talents to film and entertainment thus enlivening the lives of thousands.
The less evolved Piscean struggles with their path. If hurt or disillusioned by life's complex stream of events then they withdraw. If you happen to be one of these Piscean types, hang in there and don't identify too much with your past story.
Extend yourself to others; help the downtrodden and those who are suffering. Your mission is to give unconditional love to all who come in touch with you and eventually rise to the occasion to meet your higher self - a feat few other star signs are capable of.
If you were born between the 19th and 25th of February you were born under the cusp of Aquarius and Pisces. This means that you partake of some of the elements and personality traits of the previous star sign. Aquarius is a forward thinking and unconventional sign and therefore you're intuitive and mystical qualities are blended with this rather avant - garde element of the Aquarian temperament.
You have the ability to take traditional ideas and mould them into concepts that can be useful in helping others or an individual or even a group or communal basis. Working in humanitarian and spiritual organisations or hospitals will give you the opportunity to express much of this Aquarius - Pisces combination.
Because you are born with a mixture of air and water you sometimes find it difficult to balance the intellectual and emotional sides of your nature. Making decisions can be hard for you because you are so prone to wanting to make these decisions based upon your intuitive gut feeling. You know full well that you need to rationalise some things and to use your head but this you find hard at times. You may also find yourself thinking about how you feel or feeling about how you're thinking and this can become too much for you sometimes.
The typical Pisces is usually somewhat of a daydreamer so it's good that the intellectual and communicative aspects of the air sign of Aquarius are enmeshed in your Piscean blood. This gives you a more down to earth and expressive quality to the way you interact with others.
Being born under this blend of astrological signs is a blessing and gives you a special sort of destiny. You are a true helper, an intuitive healer and are able to soothe the wounds of your friends and people generally. Your destiny will make you sought after as a truly unconditional lover and friend.
If you are born between the 16th and 20th of March you draw in some of the fiery energies of the next zodiac sign to yours, Aries. This makes you a bolder sort of Piscean character with a mixture of the elements of water and fire. While as the typical Piscean can sometimes be indrawn and indecisive about which direction to take, the fire of Aries will make you more decisive and even sometimes aggressive in your approach.
Because you are primarily concerned with helping others and giving assistance to those who are less fortunate than yourself the strong ego quality of Aries will make it hard for you to balance self with others. There are times when you are swinging between sheer egotism and pure selflessness. To balance these two extremes in your nature may for many of you be a lifelong challenge.
You have a creative and enterprising nature and want to achieve something in the world but can also bring to that activity some wonderful spiritual and emotional qualities.
You must temper your ambitions however as your emotionalism may cause you to work too hard and at some point suffer the consequences of this through physical sickness. Once again if you are able to balance these driving needs and this emotional intensity you have a great chance of becoming successful and fulfilling yourself both in the world and within your own being.
Those of you born between the 20th and 28/29th February are very powerfully ruled by Neptune, the God of the Oceans. This means you are extremely tuned in to the psychic and the clairvoyant realms and will have a natural desire to seek out spiritual information. You are a born social worker and even if you don't work in this arena you will always be available to help others solve their problems.
If you happen to be born between the 1st and 10th March you love people but are particularly attached to your kith and kin and excel in sharing your love in close personal relationships. You are loyal and make everyone feel comfortable in your company.
As a Pisces born between the 11th and 20th March you have a streak of Scorpio in your nature which makes you passionate, demanding and very intense. An input of 100% is rarely good enough for you so you need to be careful of not being too possessive or jealous in your relationships.
A Pisces male is not stimulated by the fleeting opportunities of life that promise short-term material success, status or fame. Instead, he revels in the delight of rendering his services for the sake of others and giving something back to society.
You're not the conventional ambitious male by any means, Pisces. On the contrary, you're an expert at daydreaming, and your impractical aspirations prevent practical judgment from prevailing. Because you're philosophical and a deep thinker at heart, you possess an eclectic understanding of life and can be an authority due to your wealth of experience and ability to compassionately and intuitively help others through your wisdom. You often like to share your energy in a manner that corresponds perfectly to your totem: the two Fish perennially swimming in different directions.
You're a people person who is honest, fair and impartial. You prac- tice humility and hardly ever give your ego the opportunity to fight for its presence. Your compassion is such that you regard a beggar with similar respect as you would a king. Your unprejudiced and equitable stance in life is often stirred by your innate intuitiveness.
As an individual, Piscean men can be emotionally worn out and temperamental. However, they do manage to cover their person- ality blemishes in public and let their jovial, light-hearted attitude shine instead. You adore people and like to foster bonds at an emotional level. Socially, people look forward to having you around.
Although you desire stability in life, the reality is frenzied and rather adventurous. I wouldn't be surprised if you had a gazillion romantic partners. You're constantly on the move, and being an idealist, you always try to sniff out greener pastures, even when you've already found the best. Emotionally, you set impractically high standards for yourself and you fail to understand that such expectations are unrealistic and will let you down. You're also inherently naïve due to your compassion, and it is only until much later in life that you realise you were being used. But you'll have no one but your kind- hearted self to blame.
You love people, but you're also withdrawn. In fact, you may oscil- late between being socially active and a recluse. This happens when you're low, and you prefer to grieve in isolation rather than inconvenience others with your sadness.
You're ruled by Jupiter, the largest planet of the solar system, which bestows a quality of exaggeration to you sign. Unsurprisingly, you have an innate tendency to glorify the truth and your anecdotes. With your co-ruler, Neptune, this embellishment can often blur boundaries of reality, turning them into blatant lies. It's imperative that you understand these astrological implications, Pisces.
Your intuitiveness never fails to captivate others. The effortless- ness with which you comprehend the intricacies and complexities of human emotions is quite remarkable. You establish an instan- taneous connection with people of all backgrounds, with many revealing the darkest secrets of their lives during their very first encounter with you. You exhibit natural poise and affability that people instinctively trust. You also have a knack for drawing people towards you with your compassionate and discerning nature. It is no wonder that many Piscean men take to counseling, healing or other therapeutic fields.
You demand absolute control over your time and conduct, and you hate it when others call the shots in this area. You're fairly free- spirited and like to explore life at your own pace. If you're nudged by authority or regulations, you're likely to curl up and throw a nasty tantrum. Pressure to perform and make swift decisions is not your mainstay.
Because you have your own defined way of life, which is idealistic, impractical and forever in a daze, you tend to be rather lethargic and enjoy idling as a means of indulging yourself. You often shrug off issues that stress you out and procrastinate until the alarm bells ring. You need to find creative ways to keep yourself inspired and engaged towards the goals you set for yourself, Pisces. However, if someone breaks your attention, you exhibit aggressiveness, which can be tempered by your innate spiritual composure.
At your core, you're an unusually compassionate and adoring soul, which endears you to most people. You are the quintessen- tial combination of the sensual and the mystical. Far from relying on verbal statements, you are able to communicate effortlessly through your gestures, presence, warmth and enigmatic eyes, which are the windows to your soul. Pisces is a feminine sign, and this justifies your femininity completely.
Pisces women are the epitome of elegance and dignity. You're governed by Neptune, which makes you enormously caring and tender. The depth of emotions you experience towards others is just as deep, calm and all-embracing, making you unfathomable even by those who know you well.
You're unconventional in your ideas due to your visionary streak. This makes it difficult for many to accept you with open arms. Because you're a dreamer, you can be far too idealistic, and your vision is often out of sync with contemporary trends.
Because you're innately perceptive and intuitive, you have a remarkable flair for understanding people, temperaments and situ- ations. This means that you can creatively respond to situations and pulsate with progressive, original and thought-provoking ideas. Your idealism and belief in the goodness of all also means that you take people at face value and openly reveal your life to them.
Selfless to the core, you are driven by the desire to be of signifi- cance to the world at large, which is why you don't enjoy jobs based on self-interest. Though money is not your driving force, you turn it into a form of energy, a barometer of your joy for doing a job well. You also like to help those less fortunate, and you uncondi- tionally care for friends and strangers alike.
Pisces women are sensitive to the inherent goodness of each individual, and they are unsurprisingly appreciative of nature and its ways. You embrace the uniqueness and spiritedness of life as well as the universal power that binds it together. This quality of being remarkably self-aware, poised, sociable and imaginative adds an interesting element to your personality. Creativity and pleasure always remain at the top of your preferences.
Your high degree of emotion and inherent love for everyone ties you passionately towards your family and all of those connected to you. You like to feel desired and of assistance, even for insignifi- cant tasks. You regard family support as a life-long commitment and dutifully make your way through trying circumstances by giving your best. Many Piscean women find themselves taking on humanitarian roles such as caretakers or guardians of those who are sick or ailing in the family.
You abhor confrontations of any kind and remain wary of heated clashes at all times. Even when situations demand that you take a stance, you put up a wall of ignorance rather than proactively deal with the issue. This may become a stumbling block, especially in your personal relationships where dialogue is imperative and silence may rupture the relationship even further. Remember, being emotionally strong isn't the same as being apathetic or weak.
Pisces women, I'd strongly advice against harbouring pessimistic and unconstructive thoughts, and given your emotional and vulner- able nature, try to avoid alcohol abuse or drugs. For someone as weak as you, these might become crutches you'd rather not have.
The Pisces child may seem to assume the role of parent and guru in the manner of their understanding of the world at such a young age and you will be aware of their power and knowledge early on in their life.
This understanding is pure and comes from a deeply caring part of them. They know how to love without being taught. They know how to share without instruction and compassion. You'll see a tear trickle down their cheek at the moment they spy even the dumbest of creatures suffering.
Young Pisces need to feel that he or she belongs to someone, and preferably more than one person. Emotional connections for your Pisces child are absolutely essential and they may even attach themselves to animals for that connectedness.
They have a love of the outdoors and all animals, large or small. Giving them a pet for their birthday will make their life complete. This will bring out their best flavour and also teach you the true meaning of love and affection. Pisces children absorb information and ideas much as a sponge soaks up water. They should however be taught to sort their ideas into what is practical and what is not. Pisces children need continual grounding.
Discipline will be difficult if you are the parent as their highly sensitive nature makes them prone to withdrawing from the world around them. If they feel that they are being unfairly punished, this could become a serious issue for them and for you also.
A Pisces child should be helped to believe in him or herself and prevented from becoming too clinging. Parents who cling to their Pisces child are doing him or her no good at all. Because of their passive, non-aggressive natures they may become a target for a bully so these children should also be taught strategies for dealing with this sort of situation.
You may find the Pisces child looking as though their mind is off floating in the wide blue sky, but this is their way of zoning out and allowing the subtle forces of nature to flow through them. If you do see this happening, don't startle them out of their reverie.
Allow them their special moments to connect and balance themselves but also encourage them to participate in sport or other hobbies that may interest them. Some simple routines should be taught otherwise Pisces may become spoilt and will dominate the home with his or her changing desires.
Pisces is an eternally romantic, unconditional, vulnerable and self- less lover. Since you invest so much of yourself in a relationship, you are the perfect lover of the zodiac. However, because you're an idealistic lover, you desire perfection in every aspect of your relationship, and reality may not always deliver. Despite this, you continue to obstinately pursue your quest for the ideal soul mate.
Because you're so adoring, compassionate and defenseless at heart, it's imperative that your partner treats you with utmost respect and sensitivity, never breaking your trust or taking you for granted. Cheating or infidelity can crush you for a long time. Since water signs are governed by emotions, you naturally desire honestly and commitment in a relationship, but you also want stimulating companionship that creatively inspires you to grow as a human being and engages you between the sheets.
Because you surrender to your partner completely, your love for them may overshadow all other aspects of your life. Once you're with the person you truly desire, you leave no stone unturned in bringing them all the joy that is possible. You're unconditional in your love and don't even demand a similar intensity from your partner. This happens to be your most attractive quality as a lover. You keep pouring affection on your partner in the hope that it may be reciprocated, and you never force your ways on anyone You're emotional, sensitive and naturally sentimental.
Shedding a tear or two is part of your character, especially when you hear of a friend or family member suffering a tragedy. You feel for them as if you were in their place and sharing their suffering. Your uncanny gift of being mysteriously in tune with your lover, both emotion- ally and spiritually, stems from your innate intuitiveness. Whenever they're hassled or fraught, you always seem to know. This can be enormously cathartic for a partner who experiences this in a relationship.
However, in your search for a flawless relationship, you may find your desires far from fulfilled. Your reality can be so naïve and unrealistic that it prevents you from tasting true love. If you learn to accept the blemishes and imperfections in a relationship, you may savour the joys of love sooner than imagined.
Though you're a giver when it comes to your partner, you expect your sexual intensity to be reciprocated. You want your partner to partake in lovemaking with a similar or higher degree of inventive- ness, enthusiasm and passion as you regard physical intimacy as an extension of your personality and an expression of how much you adore them. The planet Venus and the sign of Libra regulate your sexuality. Unsurprisingly, you possess a natural predilection towards sexual intimacy and romantic pleasures. You look forward to lovemaking as a culmination of all that you feel for your loved one.
Your partner cherishes all that you do for them, but make sure that you don't smother them with your care and protectiveness. They may be the world to you, but their world may be far more diverse than yours, and they'll be embracing far more people than you. You seek long-term commitment and stability from a relationship, and when in a marriage, raising a family will be one of the most satisfying and fulfilling experiences for you. You were born to love, Pisces.
Innately compassionate and gentle, you are a spectacularly loyal and understanding companion. This quality endears you to all and draws others to you in their search for friendship.
You're a friend for life, and once you warm up to someone, you hold them dearly for the longest time. Since you're naturally sensi- tive, you get emotionally attached at the blink of an eye and don't realise when others are taking you for a ride. Remember, concern for others may be a virtue, but blind selflessness is clearly a hitch. You're intuitive, Pisces, so stand up for yourself. Self-respect is an essential ingredient for a flourishing friendship.
You thrive on and seek affection, social interaction and a cheerful sense of humour from companions. You love to lend a patient and caring ear to all. It's your way of understanding and supporting others in need. By being there for your friends and pulling them out of the muck, you reveal your true connection with them.
Loyalty is the jewel in the crown of your friendship as you remain a steadfast friend for life. Backstabbing is something that you take rather personally as it negates all that you invest in a flourishing relationship. You're a happy person at heart and desire those around you to be equally or more content.
The two Fish in your totem symbolise a confused state of mind that oscillates between extremes. Interestingly, while you celebrate friendship in loud ways and take pleasure in partying and merri- ment, you still enjoy spending time alone, locked away in isola- tion. This is due to your deep-seated spiritual nature, intrinsic to the sign of Pisces. Unless you strive to balance these extremes in your personality, your friends may need an explanation for this behaviour.
You're a livewire when friends are around, and you constantly churn up exciting ideas for creative, offbeat and fun activities. You like to stimulate them through team activities where you can get together and celebrate real companionship. You seek interesting avenues for exploration and are not entertained by the idea of a conventional picnic, unless there's an adventurous element to it.
You love seeing your buddies excel in all aspects of life. Friendship with you provides others with a source of unconditional care, and you express perennial affection and support for them. However, they'll have to be broadminded and have a large heart to recipro- cate the love you offer to them.
Pisceans are emotional and highly vulnerable, and they carefully steer clear of confrontation. They like to make peace with people and circumstances, and if you happen to witness their pent up frustration, it is usually for a very valid reason. Being delicate and sensitive, an emotionally wounded Pisces doesn't easily forget, though in their compassion they may surely forgive. If you happen to lose their trust, it will be hard to win it back.
Pisces believes that they're never at fault. Their ego can be a tyrant and they need to keep a watchful eye on this tendency. Remember to acknowledge when you're wrong, Pisces. Unless monitored and handled with diplomacy, your ego can wreak havoc and scar your relationships with co-workers or friends.
Though you're forgiving by nature, you can often be blinded by your ego and reject any attempts at an apology. You may also detest having a mirror show up your faults and shortcomings. Learn to mellow and allow an admission of guilt. Constructive criticism isn't the same as disapproval. When others are wrong, understand that there can be nothing more pure than a request for forgiveness. If you strive to give others a chance, you'll be rewarded in the future.

The Light and Shadow
The light and the dark are part of human nature and each star sign exhibits this polarity. It is the yin and yang of life and once we confront these shadowy areas within ourselves the sooner we are able to break free of all self limiting behaviours and habits.
Pisces: The light side
Others are fascinated but also bewildered by your Piscean nature. On the one hand you are dreamy; sometimes your out-of-touch style of dealing with the world makes others wonder where you really are. Yet on the other hand you are impressive in the way you can immediately sense the difficulties in others, always offering a helping hand without even being asked.
Because you're able to tap into the universal storehouse of creative power, your ideas can sometimes be quite brilliant, albeit a little progressive and confounding to others. Albert Einstein is the perfect example of the absentminded scientist who revolutionised physics in the 20th Century. You too have the ability to draw deep from the wellspring of your own creative self and make a difference in this world.
Pisces is a social creature and, like your totem the fish, you too like to swim in schools. You therefore will never be without friends and love to express your romantic and emotional nature through your connections with others.
You are a dreamer by nature and always try to see the best in others. Sometimes the fact that you befriend those whom others would normally ignore puts you at odds with your nearest and dearest. This doesn't matter to you, as you like to regard the world and all its creatures as equals.
You have a colourful, complex personality, but you need to be extremely careful how you live your life and manage these varying shades of emotional extremities.
You are moody by nature, being ruled by a mutable water sign. You mustn't allow your moods to get the better of you.
This will be more pronounced when you are in the company of others who tend to take advantage of you and dump their emotional baggage on you. You must learn to say the magic word 'No' if you are to keep your spirits bright and confident.
The other difficulty you have is daydreaming and never quite acting upon these dreams. Also, you mustn't let your thoughts revolve around your own personal problems. Get active and do something about it. This is the only way you'll resolve your problems and fulfil your ambitions.
In your desire to see the best in others you are sometimes impulsive in your relationships. This makes you changeable and somewhat dissatisfied because you realise that putting people on a pedestal only sets you up for a fall. Try to ascertain the truth of another person's character before giving your heart lock, stock and barrel.
