Pisces is represented by two fishes swimming in opposite directions.
In Vedic astrology, the water sign represents the culmination and deals with mystical experiences and dreams.
Fiercely understanding and empathetic, Pisces are known to be highly sensitive with a bit of psychic thrown in.
Touted as a mystical oceanic figure, many famous creatives are born under this sign.
There’s Nat King Cole, Michaelangelo, and Kurt Cobain, to name a few.
Considered a mutable sign, the Pisces season occurs when spring occurs, making way for new life.
They are highly adaptable.
They can be likened to the ever-changing waters and waves of the ocean—sublime, deep, and filled with wild creatures.
Another way to think of Pisces is in terms of primordial creative energy since the ocean is where life began.
The first language of this water sign is empathy and emotion.
Often, Pisces relate to themselves and others through energy or feelings.
While their mutability makes them easily adaptable, they are also very vulnerable to suggestions.
While ruled by Jupiter in ancient astrology, it is ruled by Neptune in modern astrology.
Neptune is the planet of creativity and the unconscious.
This outer planet is also known for its dream and imaginative qualities.
Neptune grants the Pisces an inclination toward the spiritual, arts, and magical thinking.
Otherworldly is another term that fits the Piscean personality perfectly.
Its ancient ruler Jupiter is considered the planet of generosity, expansion, and belief systems.
The planet grants Pisces the gift of emotional understanding and empathy.
Pisces is always searching, wondering, and envisioning what is beyond the material world.
The opposite of Pisces is Virgo, hailed as the skeptical editor of the zodiac.
Together, they constantly communicate about contraction and expansion and skepticism and faith.
They are considered two sides of the same mutable coin.
Opportunities for Growth and Challenges
They can be prone to people-pleasing and can be a bit gullible.
While their generosity is admirable, Pisceans must also ensure they are taking care of themselves.
They also need to say no when necessary.
Sex, Love, and Relationships
Their mantra in friendship and love is “whatever you want to do is fine.”
They are often so mutable and watery that they prefer having someone else take the lead.
The typical Pisces is willing to experiment regarding sex and relationships.
Like their neighboring sign Aquarius, they are always open to possibilities.
They constantly seek a mystical and emotional connection—friends and significant others with whom they can transcend earthly realms.
Pisces tend to be polyamory and won’t mind having only one partner for the rest of their lives.
The way to the Piscean heart includes art workshops, adventures, yoga classes, water activities, and spiritual questing.
Just like their approach to romantic relationships, they approach friendships in the same “live and let live” fashion.
They will not have any problems if other people call the shots.
Regarding relationships, they value vulnerability, generosity, and transcendence.
Career and Money
Pisces is considered natural-born creative.
This means they like to express themselves regardless of their chosen career.
They are also considered sensitive and can do well even with the most pressing concerns.
Pisces are the kind of people who always seem to get it.
Often, Pisces plays an instrument or two and tends to be into the sonorous life moments, including concerts, festivals, and oceanic sounds.
Pisces are also natural teachers and healers and will thrive in anything involving art, astrology, counseling, dancing, education, and music therapy.
Anything involving boat or sea travel is a win for this creative water sign.
Pisces values creativity and generosity and is always interested in togetherness, transcendence, and growth.
The most compatible sign for Pisces romantic relationships and friendships are fellow water signs like Scorpio, Cancer, and Pisces, as they speak the same flowy and emotional language.
Earth signs like Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn would also be a great match because they are known to be very grounded.
Fire signs like Sagittarius, Leo, and Aries, as well as air signs Libra, Aquarius, and Gemini, won’t often have a good relationship with Pisces as they are quite the opposite.
