Pisces Zodiac Sign Introduction
Putting other people first is perhaps the key phrase for Pisces. Like Virgos, they want to help but Virgo is the practical way – this is a self-sacrificing way, a sympathetic and caring side to matters, using their considerable intuition. It is the sign that bears the symbol of being ‘soft’ but can also, especially in men, show a very tough side. Bullies are often Pisces – it is as if they need to put on this front to disguise their inherent ‘soft’ nature. And there is a duality within this sign of opposing forces – so if they can’t help someone they will go against them. Generally though, they are very compassionate and romantic souls. Extremely sensitive, they need encouragement to get on well, and would benefit from the company of an understanding fire sign. they also tend to regularly change direction when pursuing their goals, which more often than not leads to confusion and loss. They are dreamy, sensitive, likeable people that share the Aquarian faith in humanitarian belief.

About Pisces Personality
Pisces is the twelfth sign of the zodiac, and is symbolized by the Fishes, often depicted swimming in different directions. Pisces symbol or glyph also represents two fish. The Sun is in Pisces from around 20 February until around 20 March each year. Pisces is classified as being of the negative polarity (passive and receptive), of the water element (emotional, sensitive and intuitive), and of the mutable quality (adaptable and variable).
Pisces has a nebulous, shapeless and impressionable attitude, associated with an urge to transcend the material and the self. Pisces is introspective, moody and frequently turbulent, chaotic, confused and hard to comprehend. Pisces emotionality is strong but also vacillating and often contradictory, the temperament varying from optimism to pessimism. Pisces absorbs the mental and emotional outlook of those around it, for better or worse. Unworldly and imaginative, Pisces is the dream sign of the zodiac, often getting caught up in impractical plans and ideas. Pisces is sympathetic, kindly, easy-going, compassionate, and quickly moved to tears. Tolerant, unselfish and loving, this sign is easily influenced by others and is sympathetic to the world’s unfortunate, sometimes being more concerned with others’ well-being than its own, and often feeling a need to save people from themselves.
Pisces is easily taken in by a hard-luck story and often leaves itself open to be used. Pisces is always there with a shoulder to cry on, and people may frequently take advantage of this compassionate nature. Pisces may feel that it never does enough, though in its quiet, self-sacrificing way it may actually accomplish more than others. Pisces decisions are often made on illogical hunches and feelings with little or no foundation in fact. Pisces is spiritual, often psychic and mediumistic, and the most unworldly of the twelve types. Ruled by the planet Neptune, Pisces has a very fluid nature and expresses the depth, hiddenness and variableness of the boundless ocean. Pisces often has a need to escape, sometimes in total solitude. Unintegrated use of the Pisces manner can become over-emotional, impractical, too gullible, extravagant, deceptive, careless, indecisive, confused and incomprehensible.
Physically Pisces rules the feet. Pisces may have a tendency to foot troubles, and abdominal disorders often brought on as a result of nervous stress or emotional excess, or a weakness for alcohol or drugs. Pisces is especially associated with, or “ruled” by, the planet Neptune.
- Let’s Break down the Pisces personalities into the Decans
Pisces 1st decan – February 19th to 29th – Ruler Neptune ( Double Pisces)
One of the most sensitive positions for Pisces. This Fish picks up on other’s thoughts and attitudes with relative ease. They are not fooled by the masks people regularly wear, as they themselves are Masters of theatre. Putting themselves in other people’s shoes is an integral part of their overall make-up. A quiet charm reflects the personality.
Pisces 2nd decan – March 1st to 10th – Moon ruler (Pisces + Cancer influence )
This Fish has a few more mood swings than the other two types, but it also has great tenacity and staying power. When emotionally aroused they spring into action – especially if it involves helping someone truly in need. Charitable acts with a tendency to want to mother others is not uncommon. They thoroughly enjoy much imagination time..
Pisces 3rd decan – March 11 to 20 – Ruler Mars (Pisces + Scorpio influence)
Out of the three types of Pisces, this one has the most bite. Still quite a gentle sign, however they will not tolerate injustices and even less so against weaker members of society.

The 12th and last zodiacal constellation symbolizes the zodiacal signs. As we mentioned in the Constellations page, there are 13 zodiacal constellations, but only 12 of them symbolize the signs. The constellation of Pisces, represented by the fish, is a very old constellation and one of the very first to be recognized in ancient times. This constellation is also very faint and devoid of pertinent objects because it is so distant from the Milky Way. The Sun passes through Pisces from Mid March until late April.
The horrible giant Typhon came to attack the Gods. In an attempt to escape, all of the Gods and Goddesses transformed themselves. Venus and her son Cupid were bathing at this time and transformed themselves into fish. The Gods placed the fish in the heavens to forever remember the event.
