Pisces - The Fish

Pisces is symbolised by two fish swimming in opposite directions which represents Pisces desire for harmony and oneness and the two directions that can be taken to achieve this desire – either in the form of illusion or truth.  Pisces character is dreamlike, otherworldly, elusive and psychic as it is Ruled by Planet Jupiter (Luck, Wisdom, Growth) and Planet Neptune (Illusion) which represents the ideal, perfect world we long for. Being a Water Sign, instinct and emotion drive their relationships – they are sensitive, compassionate, empathetic, reflective and imaginative. This is further emphasised by Pisces being a Mutable or flexible Sign. However, this flexibility also means they can be so influenced by others that maintaining their own sense of identity is difficult for them. For this reason, Pisces will often have to retreat to a secure place to re-establish who they are and what their personal wishes are. Pisces naturally appear to favour being rather than doing and have a calming influence on people and situations – they remind people to be accepted for who they are and not what they do.

Pisces Shadow Side

The shadow side of the Pisces Zodiac Sign is the drug addict, the dropout, the person who has given up on life or the person who expects society to care for all his needs.

Pisces Career Compatibility

Pisces Relationship Compatibility

Looks are secondary for Pisces who want a partner who is attracted to them not only physically but also to their minds and spirits with whom they can form a deep emotional bond. They pride themselves on being connected to more than just the physical world and want partners who share that curiosity. They dislike arguments, drama and backstabbing gossip and are attracted to sweet, soft spoken, kind and caring people. Pisces will understand your emotional ups and downs and will love you even more for sharing your intense feelings with them.

The most compatible Zodiac signs with Pisces are generally considered to be Taurus, Cancer, Scorpio and Capricorn and the least compatible Zodiac signs Gemini and Sagittarius. However, as well as Sun Sign compatibility, other planetary connections also need to be taken into consideration to obtain a full picture of the astrology compatibility.
