Pisces! About Your Sign…
Pisceans possess a gentle, patient, malleable nature. They have many generous qualities and are friendly, good natured, kind and compassionate, sensitive to the feelings of those around them, and respond with the utmost sympathy and tact to any suffering they encounter. They are deservedly popular with all kinds of people, partly because their easygoing, affectionate, submissive natures offer no threat or challenge to stronger and more exuberant characters. They accept the people around them and the circumstances in which they find themselves rather than trying to adapt them to suit themselves, and they patiently wait for problems to sort themselves out rather than take the initiative in solving them. They are more readily concerned with the problems of others than with their own.
Their natures tend to be too otherworldly for the practical purposes of living in this world as it is. They sometimes exist emotionally rather than rationally, instinctively more than intellectually (depending on how they are aspected). They long to be recognized as greatly creative. They also dislike disciple and confinement. The nine-to-five life is not for them. Any rebellion they make against convention is personal, however, as they often times do not have the energy or motivation to battle against the Establishment.
Pisceans tend to withdraw into a dream world where their qualities can bring mental satisfaction and sometimes, fame and financial reward for they are extremely gifted artistically. They are also versatile and intuitive, have quick understanding, observe and listen well, and are receptive to new ideas and atmospheres. All these factors can combine to produce remarkable creativity in literature, music and art. They may count among their gifts mediumistic qualities which can give them a feeling that their best work comes from outside themselves, “Whispered beyond the misted curtains, screening this world from that.” Even when they cannot express themselves creatively they have a greater than average instinct for, and love of, beauty in art and nature, a catlike appreciation of luxury and pleasure, and a yearning for new sensations and travel to remote, exotic places.
They are never egotistical in their personal relationships and give more than they ask from their friends. They are sexually delicate, in the extreme almost asexual, and most Pisceans would want a relationship in which the partner’s mind and spirit rather than the body resonated with their own. Unfortunately they can be easily misled by a lover who courts them delicately and in marriage makes them unhappy by a coarser sexuality than they expected. They are nevertheless intensely loyal and home-loving and will remain faithful.
In their employment they are better working either by themselves or in subordinate positions. Their talents are individual in a commercial business or similar undertaking. They would be afraid to manage more than a small department, worrying always that they would fail in a crisis. They can make fair secretaries and bookkeepers.
Their sympathy equips them for work in charities catering for the needy, as nurses looking after the sick and as veterinary surgeons caring for animals. As librarians or astronomers they can satisfy their mental wanderlust, and their fondness for “faraway places with strange-sounding names” may turn them into sailors or travellers. Many architects and lawyers are Pisceans, and when the creative abilities are combined with gifts of imitation and the ability to enter into the feelings of others, Pisceans find their fulfillment on the stage. Their psychic and spiritual qualities can lead them into careers in the church or as mediums and mystics. They may find an outlet for their creativity as caterers, and are said to make good detectives because they can imagine themselves in the place of criminals and understand how their minds would work. In technical occupations they are well employed in dealing with anaesthetics, fluids, gases and plastics. Because of their lively versatility and inability to concentrate overmuch on any one project, Pisceans often simultaneously follow more than one occupation.
- Solitude to dream in
- Mystery in all its guises
- Anything discarded to stay discarded
- The ridiculous
- like to get ‘lost’
- the obvious
- being criticized
- feeling all at sea about something

Pisces Personality Profile
The very imaginative and sensitive Pisces zodiac sign will be among the very best artists and story tellers there are. They can feel in depths and levels that us ordinary mortals can only imagine.
They are very loving people and are a bit more sensitive then the other zodiac signs. Be careful when dealing with the Pisces you are in love with, because absent minded comments can sometimes cut them deep.
A Pisces person will be one of the first to help you when you are down. They are charitable and honest, willing to do anything for their fellow man. They hate suffering and you will find them active in charities and other activities that help those in need.
The Pisces person seems to display two very different personalities.
The first is one of being very charming and pleasant to be in contact with. The other also has these characteristics, but occasionally appears very reserved or even bashful and almost seems devoid of personality.
In order to be successful the latter Pisces must put an extraordinary effort to overcome being timid and sensitive and work on presenting confident, determined and courageous.
Emotionally, Pisces are typically kind, generous and patient and may be very sensitive to what others have to say. Although, sensitive, Pisces need to avoid anger and quick temperedness to avoid upsetting the nervous system.
Pisces Health Concerns
Pisces governs the feet, liver and lymphatics, and its subjects can be threatened by anaemia, boils, ulcers and other skin diseases, especially inflammation of the eyelids, gout, inflammation, heavy periods and foot disorders and lameness.
The Piscean, being acutely sensitive, may tend to display the symptoms of those they may be tending. They are often caught up in the moment and need to reflect on what is real versus fiction.
Pisceans must beware of addictions that may cause them to withdraw from reality by drinking or using drugs to escape things that trouble them.
Some of the ailments which plague Pisceans are foot related such as bunions, bone spurs and heal bruising/pain. Forgetfulness can also be a bane of the Piscean, even to the point of resembling some forms of insanity. Pisceans need to be keenly aware to keep reality in perspective and not allow an overdose of fiction to overwhelm them.
Pisceans Can Be Keenly Perceptive
They possess a tendency to be able to grasp numerous details of any scenario that others are prone to miss. They tend to learn very easily and for the most part, retain it. Perception and the ability to recall stored knowledge give Pisceans a leg up on excelling when their gifts are applied in a positive manner.
Pisceans Seek Personal Relaxation
Their desire to learn and experience new things leads them to travel as this affords real relaxation and removes them from day to day monotony. Many shorter trips tend to be more beneficial than infrequent more extensive ones. Use travel and learning to keep things in perspective.
Here Are Some Interesting Pisces Facts

- Lilac is the primary color
- birthstones are diamond, amethyst and bloodstone
- Lucky day is Friday
- lucky numbers are 5 and 8

- color of choice for Pisces is Soft Seagreen
- starstone is the precious Moonstone. They are not brilliant stones, in fact, all of the specimens, from the peach and grays to the gem-quality blue and rainbow-colored pieces, are soft and translucent. The physical appearance of a stone often suggests its spiritual qualities, and moonstone’s most important attribute is the ability to assist us in calming and soothing the emotions. When one has achieved a state of emotional calmness, this stone may be used to open a path to an intuitive understanding of spirituality.
Pisces Lover Information
Probably the most romantic sign of the zodiac. They are caring and sensitive and when in love they are filled with aspirations. Most are deeply sensitive and soft hearted. Although high strung they are all too happy to lose themselves in their relationships
Most Pisceans view their loved ones through rose colored glasses, and refuse to admit that their idealized mate is no more than human. Romance allows then to escape into a dream like world, but it’s only in their imagination that they fantasize about being unfaithful as they really want nothing more than a spiritual life with their partner.
Pisces And Heartbreak
This sign is a sentimental one, and it tends to be swayed by emotions. Hurtful relationships often leave them scarred and their romantic ideals shattered. Pisceans are easy to get along with but are subject to moody periods which in turn makes them hard to understand. Their variety of moods may make married life hard for them.
In the emotional area, they are inwardly full of affection and easy to get along with but they produce a series of contradictions. One being that while they have a strong desire for romance, they will suddenly throw on the brakes for no apparent reason.
Pisces being gentle and sentimental may find themselves often deeply hurt by some of the more fiery signs. Pisceans will often become willing victims in a destructive relationship without even realizing it.
Best Match For Pisces Is Pisces
With this combination you will find the same vices and values. There is also much understanding and sympathy for each other, which in turn makes getting along well together a snap. Both have the same basic interests such as home and possessions. In each other they find the refinement and delicacy that both desire when it comes to love. This is a great union.
Worst Match For Pisces Is Sagittarius
The free and light hearted Sagittarian may find Pisces a much too heavy load to carry. These two signs are great when speaking of friendships but in marriage Pisces is far too confining for the easy going Sagittarius. If boundaries can be set early on in the relationship and each try to understand the others traits, and tendencies, be them good and bad, it just might be the common ground that will allow this union to work. But, be aware that this will not come with ease.

February 19 – March 20
Pisces is the twelfth sign of the zodiac, and it is also the final sign in the zodiacal cycle. Hence, this sign brings together many of the characteristics of the eleven signs that have come before it. Pisces, however, are happiest keeping many of these qualities under wraps. These folks are selfless, spiritual and very focused on their inner journey. They also place great weight on what they are feeling. Yes, feelings define Pisces, and it’s not uncommon for them to feel their own burdens (and joys) as well as those of others. The intuition of the Pisces-born is highly evolved. Many people associate Pisces with dreams and secrets, and it’s a fair association, since those born under this sign feel comfortable in an illusory world.
It’s a pair of Fish that represents Pisces, a symbol that prompts others to suggest that these people ‘go with the flow’ and ‘don’t make waves.’ Both of these labels are true, since Pisces are fluid and easy-going, in keeping with the Mutable Quality assigned to this sign. The fact that two fish (as opposed to one) represent the members of this sign also speaks to the duality of Pisces, their yin and yang sensibility. Pisces alternate between reality and non-reality in keeping with their introspective natures; their voyage between consciousness and an unconscious dream state says much about their intuitive, almost psychic natures. For this reason, Pisces can be hard to pin down, prompting some to call them the chameleons of the zodiac. The Fish are happy to be considered hazy, since there’s a certain sense of safety in that self-proclaimed netherworld. That said, they won’t stay away for long, since one of their primary goals is to help others. Pisces are compassionate, charitable and will quickly put the needs of others ahead of their own. It’s this kind of self-sacrifice that keeps these folks going. The flip side to their giving natures is that the oft-timid Fish are likely to be taken advantage of by less well-meaning souls.
Pisces is ruled by Jupiter and Neptune. In ancient Roman mythology, Jupiter (the original ruler of Pisces) was the king of the gods, while Neptune was the ruler of the seas. When Neptune was discovered in recent times, it was attached to this sign. The pairing of these two heavenly bodies results in some unique energies being directed toward Pisces here on Earth. Those born under this sign are spiritually oriented and charitable. They are compassionate, easily feeling another’s pain. At times, however, Pisceans can have difficulty distinguishing fact from fantasy; they tend to get caught up in their dreams and views of how things should be. To say they wear rose-colored glasses isn’t much of a stretch. Pisces who fear that their pleas aren’t being heard tend to lapse into melancholy and, worse, the kind of pessimism that leads to procrastination and lethargy. At times like this, Pisces would be wise to take time for themselves, the better to find their center once again. Many Pisces also immerse themselves in the arts and other creative pursuits as a centering mechanism, and they are quite talented in these areas.
The Element associated with Pisces is Water. Those born under this sign easily relate to the emotional and unpredictable nature of this liquid gold. Pisces feel a great deal, and they also feel misunderstood much of the time. They’re not quite pushovers, but they’re certainly sensitive. Yes, they could cry you a river if the circumstances were right. Even so, they revel in their compassionate and imaginative natures and love to cater to others. They can also be quite romantic, dreaming up delicious treats for their lover. Hopefully, any kindness will be reciprocated, because the Fish can certainly turn blue if they’re not. Pisces are generally gentle, easy-going folk, who are on the shy and reticent side. They are modest to the point of impracticality, often stepping up only to show their talents in painting or music. Easiest for the Fish (and still great fun) is living in their lush dream world.
More relaxation for the Fish comes in the way of sports, specifically water sports. Pisces loves to swim, and it’s this easy glide in a pool or the sea that serves to alleviate much of their stress. Once their mind is at ease, the Fish should focus on their feet, a frequent source of discomfort. Soothing comfort comes in a world colored in purple and soft white. When it comes to the game of love, Pisces are caring and romantic and a most creative mate.
The great strength of the Pisces-born is their compassionate and charitable nature. These folks love to help others and do so in the most imaginative of ways. It’s their feeling sensibility that wins people over.

물고기자리Ⅱ의 중심이미지는 ‘고독한 사람’이다. 인간생으로 보면 80세라는 장엄한 나이에 도달하는 시기이다. 이 시기에 인간은 자연과 하나됨을 느끼지만 또한 인간세계로부터 점점 고립된다. 많은 친구들, 그리고 인생의 반려자가 그를 남겨둔 채 세상을 떠났다. 그래서 정신적으로, 육체적으로 아주 괴로운 시기이다. 삶에 대해 긍정적인 생각을 갖기 힘들다. 어떤 이들은 이제 편안하게 삶을 마무리하기를 소망하지만, 또 어떤 이들은 이 세상의 구속으로부터 놓여나 새로운 자유를 얻은 기분이다.
물고기자리Ⅱ는 자기만의 고립된 세계에서 살려는 경향이 있다. 마음 뿐 아니라 실제생활에서도 그러하다. 예를 들어 그의 집은 세상으로부터의 은신처 역할을 하며 아무나 함부로 들어갈 수가 없다. 좀 더 건강한 물고기자리Ⅱ라면 자신의 직업과 사생활에 똑같은 무게를 둘 것이다. 한편 물고기자리Ⅱ 중에서도 균형감각이 부족한 사람들은 필요 이상으로 스스로를 고립시키게 된다.
그는 천박한 것을 본능적으로 혐오한다. 목소리 크고, 공격적이며, 나서기 좋아하는 사람들을 신뢰하지 않으며 또한 감성이 결여된 동료와는 함께 일하지 못한다. 그렇다고 추진력이나 야망이 부족하다는 의미는 아니다. 그에게는 ‘지금 어떤 일이 벌어졌나’보다는 ‘어떤 방식으로 그렇게 되었나’가 더 중요하며, 그러므로 결과가 수단을 정당화할 수는 없다. 그의 행동에는 일종의 고상함과 우아함이 깃들어있다. 그리고 스포츠, 춤 같은 육체활동에 익숙하다. 그는 감각적인 아름다움을 대단히 숭배하는데, 특히 미인과 아름다운 그림에 약하다.
그는 살아가는 동안 적어도 한가지 이상의 심각한 상처를 경험하는데, 육체적인 부상이나 병일 수도 있고, 불시에 찾아온 부모나 친구의 죽음일 수도 있다. 때로는 아무런 경고도 받지 못한 채 그러한 재난을 당하지만, 아무리 어려운 일을 겪어도 곧 훌훌 털고 일어나는 성격이다. 흔히 쉽게 죽지 않는 고양이를 가리켜 ‘아홉개의 목숨을 갖고 있다’고 말하는데, 물고기자리Ⅱ가 바로 고양이다. 그리고 아마 그 중 몇 개의 목숨은 이미 써버렸을 것이다.
물고기자리Ⅱ는 외로운 것과 혼자 있는 것의 차이를 잘 안다. 그는 자주 혼자이지만 그렇다고 외롭지는 않다. 그의 가장 좋은 친구는 바로 자신이다. 좋은 책이나 하고 싶은 일이 있다면 몇시간, 며칠을 혼자 지내도 외롭지 않으며 대화를 나눌 친구도 필요치 않다.
가장 큰 위험은 약물, 술, 섹스에 습관적으로 의지하거나 심하게 중독되는 것이다. 한편 황홀한 경험, 영적인 통찰력, 감정의 희열은 놀라울 정도로 강렬하며 보람이 있다. 물고기자리Ⅱ은 종종 지고의 체험을 갈망하는데, 너무 집착하지만 않는다면 그 자체가 나쁜 것은 아니다.
물고기자리Ⅱ에겐 친구가 별로 없지만, 만약 있다면 아주 친밀하고 충실하다. 그는 대규모 가족모임이나 이벤트를 별로 좋아하지 않는다. 친밀함은 그의 적성이다. 배우자, 친구, 연인, 혹은 소중한 가족과 친밀함을 나누는 것이야말로 가장 소중하다. 지극히 사적인 교류가 그의 강점이며, 슬픔도 기쁨도 함께 나누는 것이 행복의 결정적인 요소이다. 사랑을 할 때 즐기거나 감상하는 능력이 남들보다 뛰어나기 때문일까? 혹은 육체의 즐거움에 대한 유혹에 별다른 거부감이 없기 때문일까? 아무튼 그는 아름다운 얼굴, 육감적인 목소리, 매혹적인 몸매에 남들보다 더 쉽게 걸려든다. 일단 누군가에게 빠져들면 그 중독성은 알코올이나 약물보다 더 심각하다. 그는 질투에서 증오까지 온갖 종류의 고통을 경험하는데, 그러나 일단 거기서 놓여나고자 결심했다면 이별에 대한 불안감으로 더 괴로울 것이다.
물고기자리Ⅱ의 강점: 숭고한, 친밀감을 주는, 우아한
물고기자리Ⅱ의 약점: 은둔하는, 실망하는, 고통받는
물고기자리Ⅱ에게 주는 어드바이스: 가치관에 있어 현실성을 잃지않도록 노력하라. 여러 가지 형태로 도피의 유혹을 느끼겠지만 잘 극복하라. 한편 세상으로 향하는 창을 열어두어라. 신뢰받고 인정받기 위해 계속 노력하라. 하지만 또한 자신을 보호할 사람은 자기자신임을 기억하라. 사회적 지위가 향상되면 어떤 일은 좀 더 쉬워질 것이다. 당신의 고통은 누구나 다 겪는 것이며, 살아가는데 꼭 필요한 것이다.
물고기자리Ⅱ 유명인들: 알렉산더 그래함 벨, 재키 조이너-커시(미국의 육상선수) , 가브리엘 가르시아-마르께스, 미켈란젤로, 아이단 퀸(미국의 영화배우), 피에트 몬드리안, 로자 룩셈부르크, 시라노 드 벨쥬락, 윤복희
