Born on the cusp?
If you were born on the day the Sun moved into a new sign then you were born “on the cusp”. For example in the year I was born the sun moved into the next star sign, just two hours before my birth. Are you absolutely sure that you are an Pisces? Or are you really a Aquarius or an Aries?
If you were born “on the cusp”, (ie around the 20th February or 19th March) use this link to check exactly which star sign the sun was in the day you were born: About Cusp Signs.
Introducing Pisces – “I Believe”
February 20 – March 20
Pisces is the 12th sign of the Zodiac and its symbol (or glyph) represents 2 fishes pulling or swimming in opposite directions.
In Western astrology, Pisces is considered to be a “feminine”, negative and introvert sign, along with the other five even-numbered signs of the Zodiac: Cancer, Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn and Scorpio.
Pisces is a very dull constellation that is not visible to the naked eye. It is located in the night sky between Aquarius and Aries.
The Story of Pisces the Fishes
The constellation of Pisces
According to Greek mythology, the constellation of Pisces originated from a story of Aphrodite, the goddess, and her princely son, Eros.
A great monster named Typhon launched an attack on Mount Olympus, home to the gods and goddesses of ancient Greece. Most fled from the monster, but Aphrodite and Eros found themselves in desperate need of escape.
There are two versions of this story with slight differences:
1) Two fish arrive on the scene and usher the goddess and her son to safety
2) The goddess and her son turn into fish and swiftly swim away to safety
Either way, the two fish are key to Aphrodite and Eros escaping from the monster Typhon. As a result, they were given the special honor of being immortalized in the sky as the constellation of Pisces.
Jupiter and Neptune
The ruling planets of Pisces
The traditional ruling planet of Pisces is Jupiter, which represents leadership, luck and joy. Jupiter was the ancient mythological ruler of the gods.
Neptune, representing sensitivity and spiritual enlightenment, is the more recent New Age co-ruler of Pisces.

Pisces is a Water Sign
The Zodiac is divided into four Elements: Earth, Air, Fire and Water, which represent the four basic modes of being. Signs that share an Element are generally regarded to be harmonious with each other.
The Element of Pisces is “Water”, which it shares, and is compatible with, Cancer and Scorpio.
The Element of Water symbolizes flowing, intense emotions and basing actions and decisions on feelings rather than facts. It represents intense emotions, sensitivity, compassion, intuition and empathy.

The Qualities of Pisces
Pisces’ Quality is Mutable
The signs of the Zodiac are also divided into Qualities: Cardinal, Fixed and Mutable. The signs that share a Quality are generally regarded to be hostile to each other.
The Quality determines the basis for an individual’s temperament. Those with a certain Quality will tend to have dominating characteristics that come naturally and change little throughout their lifetime. Each Quality sees the world through a different lens and reacts to stimuli differently so that their reasoning and actions may be contradictory to the other Qualities.
The Quality of Pisces is “Mutable”
The Mutable Quality stands for transition. Mutable signs tend to be adaptable to change, new people and experiences. Pisceans tend to transition through reaching out to others and helping those less fortunate than themselves.
Virgo (Earth), Sagittarius (Fire) and Gemini (Air) are also Mutable signs and are therefore less likely to be compatible with Pisces (Water).
The Positive Side of Pisces
What’s to like about Pisces?
A person born under the star sign of Pisces is sure to be compassionate and sympathetic. They will be kind and aware of the emotions and feelings of those around them. They will be blessed with a good imagination and above average intuition that may seem at times to be otherworldly.
Pisceans tend to be spiritual and benevolent, sometimes to the point of denying themselves in order to help others.
The Negative Side of Pisces
What’s to loathe about Pisces?
On the flipside, Pisces tends to have a few distinct negative traits, including a tendency to be overly idealistic. This leads them to be easily disappointed, and frequently depressed, when things don’t go quite the way they had imagined.
Pisceans can also be weak-minded and impressionable; they can be easily hurt or led astray.
What would you be good at, Pisces?
Pisceans have big imaginations and are very creative. An unstructured career where they can set their own hours and explore their artistic side would be ideal. A regular 9-to-5 work day will feel unnatural and difficult for visionary Pisces.
Because of their empathetic nature, Pisces would be well-suited to any career that allows them to help others in need.
Great career choices for Pisces would be: photographer, art teacher, filmmaker, drug and alcohol counselor, bartender, author, freelance writer or church worker. Pisces will feel greatly fulfilled by doing volunteer service and working with children or animals.
Possible medical weaknesses of Pisces

Pisces also governs the feet, leading to foot problems, including lameness.
Pisces’ Lucky Number is 2

The Number 2 represents:
Pisces’ Lucky Colour: Sea Green
The color most associated with the aquatics
The lucky colour for Pisces is sea green, the colour associated with it’s ruling planet, Jupiter. Sea green is an aquatic color that reminds us of the sea.

Positive qualities of Sea Green: calming, therapeutic, sympathetic, healing
Negative qualities of Sea Green: weak, vulnerable, overly sensitive, emotional
Pisces finds luck with the colour sea green because it illicits calm and peace. Pisces are naturally empathetic to others and always willing to help those who need it. They bring the same calm and peace to others that is represented by the sea green colour.

Are you a Pisces in love? Are you in love with a Pisces? What do the stars have in store for you?
Pisces is a peaceful and compassionate soul. Men and women belonging to this Zodiac sign are romantic to the core and will seek out a lover who will accept their generous gestures. Pisces is very emotional and is easily hurt when they are involved in the wrong relationship.
The Pisces is deeply spiritual and imaginative. It may seem that they have their head in the clouds a good portion of the time. Their significant other will need to find ways to ground them in reality, but at the same time allow them their creative outlets.
Love with Pisces can be satisfying and fulfilling. This starsign will not fall for a partner easily, but when they do, they will devote a good deal of time and attention to making their love connection a strong one.
But which star signs are the most compatible for Pisces? Who makes the best partners for these true romantics?
Charming and spiritual but has his head in the clouds
The Pisces man is an interesting fellow indeed. He is extremely charming and will draw many people to him. However, he shares true compatibility with very few people, making a love match difficult to acheive.
Pisces is very spiritual and visionary. He will sometimes seem a little out of touch with reality, but it’s just in his nature to be focusing outward, sometimes on things unknown and far into the future. Conversations with Pisces will often become philosophical in subject.
He will make a love connection with a devoted and loyal woman. She will need to thrive on the romance and love he wants to shower her in. He will not risk being hurt, so if he feels she cannot be faithful, he will turn away before he gets in too deep.
The Pisces man will make connections on a very deep level with those who are in his life, especially his significant other. He is a generous and heartfelt lover, both in the bedroom and out. He will truly inspire his love interest in ways she never thought possible!
A true romantic but tends to be emotionally needy
Pisces is the most generous of the Zodiac signs. She truly cares about others and is always willing to lend a helping hand. She is an optimist that sees the best in everyone. Her kind and considerate nature is endearing, but can also open her up to heartache and disappointment when she is taken advantage of.
In love, the Pisces woman is all about the romance! She desires love and affection and needs to be the only one in the eyes of her partner. She is highly invested emotionally in her relationships and may come across as needy. She will give up anything for her love. If she becomes involved in the wrong romantic situation, her heart will become broken easily and she will not recover quickly.
Pisces is nurturing and draws those around her who are needy. She has a hard time saying no. On the outside, she will seem like the “perfect” girl…sweet, kind and always helping others. But on the inside there could be emotional turmoil and sadness.
What Zodiac signs make ideal partners for Pisces?
Which star signs are the most compatible with the Sign of the Fish?
Pisces are well matched with Cancer, Scorpio, Capricorn, Taurus, Libra and Virgo.
Pisces and Taurus complement each other in a way that makes each of them stronger. When Pisces has retreated into an imaginary place, Taurus can be sure to ground her in reality. When Taurus becomes a bit boring, Pisces will help bring the excitement back.
Pisces and Cancer will be a love connection fuelled by spirituality and emotions. Cancer will be understanding of Pisces’ dreamy side and their sexual chemistry will keep things exciting between the sheets.
Pisces and Virgo are complete opposites…but in this case, opposites attract. Their curiosity about one another will fuel a fire that will withstand the test of time. These starsigns make sweet music together in the bedroom and will keep coming back for more.
Pisces and Libra will understand each other emotionally and their sex life will be deeply fulfilling. They are both creative and imaginative, so they will enjoy spending time doing the same things together. Their relationship is bound to be devoted one that is long-lasting.
Pisces and Scorpio are true soul mates! They will know it from the first moment they meet. Their ensuing relationship will be filled with intense love, loyalty and devotion. Their understanding of each other and commitment to their relationship will ensure a lifelong connection.
Pisces and Capricorn balance each other out, opening up the door to a solid love connection that makes each of them better. Capricorn will provide the stability Pisces needs and in turn, Pisces will give Capricorn a safe place to release emotions.
Star Signs that are incompatible with Pisces
These Zodiac signs are NOT a good match for Pisces
Pisces should avoid relationships with Aries, Gemini, Leo, Sagittarius, Aquarius and other Pisces.
Pisces and Aries will have a one-sided relationship that is bound to be short-lived. Pisces’ romantic and compassionate side will be overshadowed by the intensity and harshness of Aries. It won’t be long before Pisces gets a wounded spirit.
Pisces and Gemini is a match that simply shouldn’t be attempted. Pisces desires romantic love and stability that Gemini won’t be able to give or even understand. Hurt feelings will leave Pisces feeling vulnerable and may lead to depression.
Pisces and Leo will most likely end quickly, if it ever even gets started. Pisces is much too sensitive for bold Leo. The strong, decisive lion sign will become very impatient with the timid, people-pleasing fish sign.
Pisces and Sagittarius is destined to be a disaster. The archer cannot give the fish the security that is needed, and in return, Pisces will not be happy with Sagittarius’ wandering ways.
Pisces and Aquarius will probably not be able to develop a deep love connection. They are both creative, but that is probably where the similarities end. These two starsigns have a difficult time understanding each other and communicating.
Pisces and Pisces are surprisingly not normally a good match. Their relationship will only make each of them weaker. They are both too sensitive and soft. Ideally, a Pisces needs a strong lover to balance out their weaknesses and provide them with security.
The Perfect Pisces Date
How to woo a Pisces
Think romance when planning the perfect date for Pisces. A sunset walk on the beach or a drive through the country with an overnight stay in a bed and breakfast will please Pisces to no end.
This starsign also loves the arts, so try getting tickets to the ballet or take painting or ballroom dancing classes together.
Since Pisces has a spiritual side, they tend to connect with animals well. A fun day could be spent volunteering at an animal shelter or visiting the zoo.
