The Characteristics of those born on the
Cusp of Pisces and Aries
Cusp dates: March 19 to March 23
Known as: The Cusp of Rebirth
At first glance, you would be excused for wondering how the combination of Pisces and Aries Sun signs could possibly work, without causing massive internal conflict, but somehow it does. Combine the dreamy mindset of Pisces, who is strongly intuitive, with the get up and go of Aries and you have someone who knows what they want and how to get it – now!
This Zodiac combination is dedicated, assertive and likes to get things going. As a result they are strong leaders. This is helped by the fact that they know how to push limits and take others along with them.
But they have to be careful they don’t rub people up the wrong way, with their impatience, directness and total conviction that they are always right. They need to work on their social skills, particularly developing more patience with others and not expecting everyone to keep up with their pace. They also need to keep their ego in check and understand that life is not just about what they want or think is right.
If a project takes time to complete there’s a danger that Pisces/Aries will become bored and lose interest before the project is completed. However, despite their natural impatience, they can be compassionate, sensitive and sympathetic to others and imaginative. They love new projects and their enthusiasm and the need for challenge will cause them to jump in immediately, looking to see if they can push beyond normal limitations.
Pisces/Aries are sometimes enigmatic, hiding their real selves. They are thoughtful and some are blessed with exceptional musical talent. In their leisure time, this Cusp sign will play as hard (and competitively) as they work at the office.
They enjoy venting their natural aggression and emotional stress in sports, both individual and team.
The greatest strength of the Pisces and Aries Zodiac Combination is in their compassion, energy, initiative and courage. Although they can be ego-centric, their natural sensitivity makes them one of the most understanding of the Cusp Signs.
Please note: The Cusp Dates given above are just a general range and may vary depending upon the year of birth.
The Characteristics of those born on the
Cusp of Aquarius and Pisces
Cusp dates: February 15 to February 24
Known as: The Cusp of Sensitivity
Spritual, compassionate, imaginitive, peace-loving, artistic and very friendly, this Cusp sign combines the quirky enery of the air sign Aquarius, with the dreamy Pisces to produce individuals who are very intuitive and receptive to the needs of others.
They are very intellectual at a high level, but fail miserably when it comes to practical details and following through. They can be so taken up with their thoughts and ideas that they will become forgetful, turn up late for appointments and lose things.
Although strongly spiritual, this Zodiac combination may not be religious. They are artistic and have ideals, but sometimes these are undefined and vague and not at all practical. They see reality as an intrusion, which can then make them pessimistic and lacking in mental energy, but they are willing to adapt and are broad-minded, so their ideals can change if necessary.
Aquarius and Pisces are logical and self-confident, but they can become aloof from people around them and may seem cold toward people who don’t share their attitude to life. They can also become frightened or withdrawn if their emotions are abused too many times and will hide their real selves.
Very sociable, they find that contact with others and excercise will relieve stress – team sports are best for them. In love Aquarius and Pisces can be flirty, caring and romantic.
The great strength of the Aquarius and Pisces combination is in their visionary nature and their compassion. They are adept in persuading others to see things in a new light. Their ability to work around and even break the rules to help others reach their fullest potential makes them one of the most understanding Cusp signs of the zodiac.
Please note: the Cusp dates given above are general and will at times vary depending on the year of birth.

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.
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.

The Elements 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.
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.
