February 19 – March 20
Pisces is a mutable water sign ruled by Neptune – the planet of enchantment and illusion. Being the 12th sign and hence the final sign in the zodiac, it’s said this sign brings together many of the characteristics of the eleven signs that have come before it.
Dreamy, imaginative and easily led, the Pisces individual alternates frequently between reality and fantasy – very much in keeping with their introspective natures. Their voyage between consciousness and an unconscious dream state makes them hard to pin down, prompting some to call them the chameleons of the zodiac.
Emotion is the key word of this sign – Pisces are highly sensitive, intuitive and very much in tune with the emotional needs and natures of others. Compassionate and empathetic, a Pisces can absorb energies and vibes around them like a sponge. Another’s pain feels just as real to them as their own, hence a Pisces is often kind-hearted, timid and careful to not cause pain to others, and is always on hand to help someone in need.
