Pisces February 19 - March 20

Pisces personality, characteristics and compatibility - Pisces Zodiac Sign - ruled by Jupiter, co-ruler Neptune.

Your Sun Zodiac sign may not best describe your personality features, your characteristics and general qualities that you bring to life. For many people, their Ascendant or its planetary ruler is the more obvious characteristic, or sometimes the Moon sign. Your Sun sign, rather, says more about the direction you should be moving in, to make the contribution to humanity you were born to make, and thus achieve a degree of personal fulfilment. A typical Pisces is shy and is an abiding love and trust for all those who comes into contact with them. You are eternally romantic in the classic sense and have well-deserved reputation for stumbling over your own feet. You are the most malleable of all the zodiac signs. You possess a gentle, patient nature but the one which needs molding. You adapt to your surroundings whether good or bad. You are generous, friendly and good natured with a true sense of kindness and compassion. You are sensitive to everything around you along with the feelings of others. You are not initiators but allow circumstances and events to motivate them to respond.

In western mythology, life began in the Garden of Eden, in Paradise, in perfect harmony with the divine. Then we became conscious of ourselves as separate human beings through an act of disobedience, and were cast out of Paradise. The Catholic Church still refers in its liturgy to the 'happy fault' which this act of disobedience was, for it gave us the opportunity to become fully human, which in turn led to the coming of God as a human being in order to restore us to Himself, but in a more complete way than we ever would have experienced had we never left Paradise. Pisceans are not practical people but are sensitive and instinctual. You become completely absorbed in a chosen path to the exclusion of everything else. You are versatile and tend to understand things by absorption rather than logic. You are loyal, home-loving, kind and generous. You can be easily misled because you want to believe. Your dreamy and impractical natures are a source of distress to your near and dear ones. Being a mixture of an optimist and a pessimist, you find it difficult to make up your minds on any issue.

Pisces witness to the difficult task of straddling this divide - between the human and the divine. More than any other sign, perhaps, Pisces experiences normal human life as limited, for it excludes so much that can make life more complete. Yet, even Pisceans have to live as human beings in a world full of limitations. Coming to terms with the necessity to live in a world separate from Paradise can be an immense problem. Some may attempt to live as if exclusion from Paradise had never happened, and live life in a constant daydream, very ineffective in the world as it is. Others, however, may learn to live life in the human arena in such a way as to infuse it with divine meaning.

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.

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.

The Upside

There’s a persistent rumor among astrologers that you can always spot a Pisces by their crossed legs, even if they’re standing. Like many clichés, this one has a grain of truth in it. Perhaps this is because Pisces' symbol, two fish tied by an invisible cord as they swim in opposite directions, is being expressed.

This may account for some of the duality seen within the Pisces personality as well. Intuitive, spiritual and always there with a kind smile; these are the Pisces characteristics we know and love best. Not only are compassionate Pisces great friends, but because of their strong musical and artistic talents, they make for some fantastic dinner companions! Moreover, like the symbolic dual fish, Pisces is very adept at “feeling” the under currents in the air, and then acting appropriately.

The Downside

It’s those very same undercurrents, Pisces, that can be your undoing. Pisces can sometimes swim in deep, murky waters, a trait that they often internalize. It’s rare to see a Pisces complain; they usually hold their conflict in until it overtakes them. And while it’s very true that Pisces can count kindness as one of their greatest assets, when the going gets rough, their desire to escape becomes prevalent.

Neptune, your guardian ruler, rules all forms of escapism; sleeping pills, narcotics and alcohol all fall under this planet's domain. Steer clear of the pull of escapism, while embracing your inner truths, and you’ll be quite successful in life.
