Sun Signs: Pisces

Well, here we are at the end of the zodiacal cycle. Up to this point, we have learned about the other 11 signs:

  1. Aries
  2. Taurus
  3. Gemini
  4. Cancer
  5. Leo
  6. Virgo
  7. Libra
  8. Scorpio
  9. Sagittarius
  10. Capricorn
  11. Aquarius

What is particularly remarkable about the last sign is that it sort of encompasses characteristics of all the other signs, which makes it appropriate to be the last in the zodiacal cycle. What is this final sign? Pisces hold the place as the last sign in the zodiac, and it also holds the reputation as the chameleons of the zodiac as identifies. Furthermore, explains particular characteristics of the Pisces men and women:

“These folks are selfless, spiritual and very focused on their inner journey. They also place great weight on what they are feeling. Yes, feelings define Pisces, and it’s not uncommon for them to feel their own burdens (and joys) as well as those of others. The intuition of the Pisces-born is highly evolved. Many people associate Pisces with dreams and secrets, and it’s a fair association since those born under this sign feel comfortable in an illusory world.”

In other words, a Pisces is one who feels deeply and truly, loves the dreams, and focuses on the spiritual world and journey.

According to Linda Goodman’s blog, anyone born from February 20 to March 20 is a Pisces, and, therefore, will exhibit many of these qualities of the internal journey and deep feelings and all that those bring with them. Goodman’s blog also identifies that Pisces is symbolized by two fish, which will make great sense by the end of this blog article.

The first reason the fish is an important symbol for Pisces is because they are matched with Mutable Qualities. Those who are Mutable Qualities show great fluidity and a search for knowledge. The Mutable Qualities are adaptable and flexible with a lust for learning and understanding. And aren’t fish fluid and adaptable? Seems like a good match for the characteristics listed above, right?

The second reason that the fish is an important symbol for Pisces deals with the Element connected to Pisces: Water. Yep, water is Pisces Element. Of all the other 11 sun signs, Pisces is the best matched with its Quality and Element because like a Mutable Quality, the Water Element is all about fluidity, adaptability, and growth. And fish live in water. These connections could only happen with the last sign in the zodiac. further connects why two fish is important for the Pisces: “The fact that two fish (as opposed to one) represent the members of this sign speaks to the duality of Pisces, their yin and yang sensibilities. Pisces alternate between reality and non-reality in keeping with their introspective natures.” The Pisces men and women love the dream life but also see where they are needed in real life. And they want to help.

The final zodiac sign works well with its brothers and sisters. It encompasses much of the good that they have and brings its own good. The only real struggle Pisces have is that they have difficulty with fact and fiction. They live in dreams and secrets, or at least they want to do so, thus reality sometimes takes its toll on the Pisces. Their deep root in feelings wins others over, but it can also lead to overly emotional experiences. Still, more emotion is better than none, and a Pisces will convince all of this fact. Loving, intuitive, kind, and emotional all make the Pisces men and women of the world crucial to balance.
