February 18 – March 19
Pisces is the shyest sign of the Zodiac, and the most easily influenced. But there’s another side to Pisces and that’s the one that is secretive and controlling.
Pisces’ symbol is the Fish swimming in two directions, which symbolizes the two roads a Piscean can take. One direction can lead to addiction, destruction and depression; the other, a life of power and success.
Often the Fish is underestimated, due to their sweet and loving nature. They can be seen as a doormat that others can walk on, but that impression can be a mistake. Pisceans are emotionally stronger than they let on, and many seek revenge when wronged. They also carry a grudge and very rarely forgive or forget. Many Fish start out life as someone who is pushed around by others. But once a Piscean gains self-confidence about their abilities, they are a force to be reckoned with.
Pisces tends to be highly intuitive, thanks to its ruling planet, Neptune. They are also creative and spiritual, and make decisions based on their gut feelings. They need to make sure they have positive outlets for their talents and interests, or they can turn to alcohol and drugs for escape. They also need to be choosy about the company they keep, since the Fish absorbs the qualities of all the other signs. Pisceans see the good in everyone, which can lead to their downfall if they surround themselves with destructive individuals.
Pisces can be wishy-washy, depressing and negative if allowed to wallow in self pity. But the Fish is also caring, loyal, sensitive and psychic, and when they love someone, it’s from the very depths of their soul.
