Pisces (The Fishes)
19th February - 20th March
The Sun brightened sensitive Pisces, a feminine sign on your birthday. In astrology, the Sun stands for your inner nature, the true mark of your character. The twelfth sign of the Zodiac, Pisces is ruled by fortunate Jupiter and new age Neptune. A mutable (changeable and communicative) sign, dreamy Pisces is the exaltation of Venus, the goddess of love and artistic sensibility. It is a water sign, so Piscean people are creative, sensitive and deeper than they appear on the surface, although they can be emotionally vulnerable, clinging and rather melancholic.
The light of the Sun, ruler of our inner nature, is somewhat dimmed in Pisces, the home of Jupiter (lord of the gods) and his elusive brother Neptune (the king of the sea). Jupiter gives you a thirst for knowledge and understanding, with a natural lucky streak. Neptune brings out your sensitive and spiritual qualities, but it can also lay you open to deception and intrigue (that is if it's not you who is doing the deceiving!). You have probably noticed that Neptune can stimulate a thirst of a quite different variety 鈥?a thirst for liquor, drugs and addictive substances in general (including the addictions of love... ). Both of these great planets influence your personality.
Sensitive and Humane
Sensitive Pisces reacts emotionally to everything. You just give in to your feelings, a trait which can lay you open to control by the unscrupulous. But then, you yourself are fairminded and not at all afraid to bend unbreakable rules, should the situation demand a more humane approach. You would make an excellent judge, a sensitive administrator, or a quite inspirational teacher.
Compassionate Pisces is idealistic, although you have a tendency towards sacrificing yourself on the altar of love, or some other noble cause. Hmmm. You really must watch that tendency to play the martyr.
Despite your sensitive personality and delicate physical constitutions, you really are a survivor. You outlast those who may be much stronger, by adapting more easily to the demands of changing circumstances. Your intuitions are reliable and should be trusted; you may even have natural psychic powers, which can be developed, given the right circumstances. However, because you are adaptable and so readily identify with the feelings of others, you risk exploitation and loss of your own needs, ideas, and talent. Of course, intuitive Pisces understands the moods and behaviour of others so well that you can be quite a manipulator behind the scenes. Pisces is a dual sign, which has both an up and a down-side.
The two fishes in your astrological sigil swim in either direction. Here is your choice: focus, be strong and overcome the weaknesses in your sensitive nature, or dissolve in vague longings and become the victim of your own vulnerability. For the sake of your emotional equilibrium, develop a private place of your own, or at least take a private time for daily retreat and relaxation. Your most creatively stimulating and soothing environment is close to water, especially near the ocean.
Confronting your own vulnerability, you can be a daredevil and risk-taker. The thrills of car racing, piloting a plane, exploring the wilderness, or hunting game can be seductive. A compulsive eater, you face a lifelong battle of the bulge. Sports and physical fitness routines are a good way to keep in shape and reduce emotional stress. Horseback riding, dancing, skating, swimming or sailing are favoured activities.
Pisces rules the feet and lymphatic system. Swelling, allergic reaction to drugs, injuries to the feet and related problems are common complaints, but your emotional nature can also make you vulnerable to psychosomatic illness.
Your colours are pale green, purple, rose, and grey-blue. Pisces rules metallic pewter, while your birthstones are aquamarine, chrysolite and moonstone. Aquamarine seems to disappear when placed under water, like your shy Piscean self, which often wishes it could disappear so easily. Flowers for Pisces are the orchid, lilac, wisteria, lotus, white poppy, and pansy.
Your sexuality is fantasy-driven and dynamite when stoked by the right mixture of wish-fulfilment, appropriate environment and emotional stimulation (not to mention drugs and alcohol!). You tend to idealise your partner, often mistaking your responses to archetypal pattern-fixations for the genuine article. This is astro-babble for the fact that you allow your imaginative emotions to cloud your judgement when it comes to sexual attraction. You are deeply intuitive and sympathetic, but can be easily deceived by those who fit your fantasy patterns.
Your personality is complex. Spiritual depth rides with a proclivity for fantasy and self-deception or deception of others. Sexually you are ambivalent, with a need for love and reassurance vying with an almost masochistic urge to be dominated. You are sexually adventurous and willing to experiment, so long as you feel secure with a partner (or partners), or if you have been subjugated to a stronger will.
You love sensitivity and are quite artistic, though sometimes unduly fixated upon the negative or dark aspects of your sex life. You readily follow others into the pleasures of some new experience and get hot when your emotional and archetypal streams are tapped.
Your empathy with others and desire to please means that you often respond to sexual advances before they have become much more than a gleam in the eye of the prospect! Admirers should be aware of your need for protection and a firm structure to prevent you from drowning the in sea of emotion. You love to help those in need and prefer to be with a stronger person with whom you can explore the delights of your relationship. An appeal to sympathy will get anyone a long way with the Pisces lover.
Other-worldly, ultra-sensitive and intuitive, you really need to be needed. Fantasy prone and alive in the world of your vivid imagination, you nevertheless suffer from fear of rejection and low self-esteen (although you hide this well in your efforts to create the ideal, loving environment for your loved ones). You seek a sensitive, soulful friend, but can be dazzled by appearances which scramble your naturally powerful radar and send you into a tailspin.
Pisces, a feminine sign, is tender and caring, but frequently subject to relationships where the other partner is domineering and uncaring. You submerge yourself in the experience of the other, which is okay, so long as that other is what he or she appears to be. In the event that your partnre is truly sensitive, artistic (and preferably dying of consumption...), yet strong and caring (with a satisfactory income), you will soar on the wings of love and the relationship will be ecstatic and fulfilling to both parties.
On the other hand, should you have picked a rotten apple from the barrel, you'll prolong the agony to an interminable degree, for you will feel that you must have done something to deserve the misery and will flourish in the role of martyr. Ugh. If this happens to you, you must snap the chain of karma that has trapped you in the bubbling vat of despond and get out quickly before you drown. There are lots of really wonderful people out there who will sense your needs and return your emotional investment in the most glowing of terms...
Your emblem, the Fishes, shows your duality. The contrast between the opposing sides of your personality is quite startling. One side of you is heroically romantic, wistful, imaginative, sensitive, sexually fulfilled, perceptive, creative, intuitive, even transcendental, while the other is depressive, masochistic, suicidal, frustrated, guilt-ridden, filled with self-loathing and a general doormat. Moreover, you can flick from one to the other of these sides of your character and back again with alarming ease and rapidity! Pisces is a mutable sign, so you are best involved with a steadier, stronger personality who will tolerate and enjoy your romantic fantasies, yet still be there for you when the horrors strike deep in the night. There is no more loyal and caring lover than a piscean, but your need for emotional and sensual reassurance can lead to flirtations and dalliances that generate emotional instability. You are somewhat ambivalent in your sexuality and have been known to dabble in unusual relationships, including sexual explorations with members of the same sex and with multiple partners, group sex and of course you like nothing better than exploring your fantasies alone in the protected environment of self-stimulation.
Although you are the most loving and giving of the signs, your ability to select an inappropriate partner is legendary (bear this in mind as you suffer from the effects of delusion and haste). With the right partner, you are surely the ideal soul mate, lifelong friend and ally, although your sexuality reflects the needs of the other, to the extent that you can become confused as to what you really want and need. In the right relationship, your sexuality will blossom and become something of an artform, especially as you get a little older, more experienced and more confident.
