February 19 – March 20
The glyph (written symbol) for Pisces is two crescent moons connected by a band, much like an ornate capital H.
Pisces is the twelfth and last sign of the zodiac. It is a feminine, water sign ruled by the planet Neptune, ancient God of the sea. The symbol for Pisces is two fish tied together, but swimming in opposite directions, signifying the two sides to the Pisces personality.
Pisces are often a bevy of conflicting emotions and desires. They can be diligent workers or lazy and careless. The fish can be self-confident and positive or filled with self-doubt and negativity. The last sign of the zodiac is the sign of eternity and spiritual rebirth. The fish is intuitive and often becomes involved in the spiritual aspects of life. Many Pisces feel the call from beyond, thus offering themselves as mediums or clairvoyants. They are the dreamers of the zodiac and all Pisces dreams have fairy tale endings. The fish are sensitive to their physical surroundings and the rhythm of life. When in crisis, the fish chooses to go with the flow, not to imply they lack strength, but for the mystical fish all things miraculously work out.
Pisces are loyal, generous, caring and ever ready to help a friend in need. Both male and female fish possess an irresistible charm and charisma. They make great conversationalists, as they are able to discuss many topics. Due to their creative nature, Pisces are often well versed in art, literature and theater. As well, their interest in the spiritual aspects of life leads them to examine many off-beat topics, such as dream analysis, astrology and the paranormal.
The part of the body ruled by Pisces is the feet. They usually have dainty, symmetrically perfect feet. Albeit their feet may be so sensitive that they may not be able to tolerate standing for long periods. Pisces usually have deep-set dark eyes. If their eyes are blue, it will be a dark shade. They usually have high cheekbones and a fine jaw line well into old age. They are vulnerable to colds, flu and inflammation of the nervous system. Pisceans tend to over indulge in food, alcohol and drugs. The fish needs lots of rest, as they may suffer low iron and will benefit from a high protein diet.
