Pisces Zodiac Sign - Basics:

Element: Water, Quality: Mutable, Rulers: Jupiter Neptune.

Characteristic traits

Pisces has an instinctive connection with life beyond space and time such that ordinary daily life can seem a burden. As an actor on the stage can lift an audience out of itself so can Pisces give life by infusing this world with intimations of another.


Pisces dreams of life without limitations takes one away from dealing with issues of life on earth. Sickness is another form of escape allowing demands on the attention of others, or it may be the other way round - you give in easily to the demands of others who would be better standing up for themselves.

A word of advice

Check what your sacrificial service to others is doing to you. If it's destroying you then you have nothing to give. If your reward is more joy in life all well and good.


As a Pisces your ideal mate warms to your sensitivity and devotion, welcoming your empathetic attention when needing it. You may attract partners who need so much attention they suck you dry before you know what's happened - see pitfalls above. Others may be cool and thoughtful, needing to keep their distance from excessive concern - a need you'd be wise to respect. See Pisces Man or Pisces Woman for hints about your Pisces partner

Pisces Star Sign - a Deeper Look

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.

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, totally 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. Pisces is often associated with music, dance, drama and other forms of art, as these can give a sense that there is something beyond life lived at the simply human level, and can open up people's awareness to a richer reality than that lived in day to day living. Alcohol and drugs can also provide awareness of another dimension, but used unwisely, they are regressive rather than progressive, and represent an escape to the womb rather than an advance to a richer life infused with wealth from a spiritual dimension.

Coming after Aquarius in the zodiacal sequence, Pisces also has ideals, but whereas in Aquarius these are mentally formulated, in Pisces they are formulated more in terms of wanting a feeling connection between people. Aquarius may experience Capricorn as bound by structures. Pisces may experience Aquarius as bound by mentally conceived ideas which inhibit a more inclusive awareness of the connection between people. Compatibility in love with people with either sign strong in their horoscopes may be an issue. In the end, we are made for union with the divine, not for life in a community formed by the ideals of logical analysis.
