Symbol of Pisces

Pisces is the twelfth astrological sign in the Zodiac, which originates from the Pisces constellation. In western astrology this sign is no longer aligned with the constellation because of the precession of the equinoxes. Pisces is represented by a pair of fish that are swimming in opposite directions, but remain held together at the tail by a cord. In astrology, Pisces is considered a feminine sign or negative sign. It is also a water sign, and is one of four mutable signs.[1] Being the twelfth sign, Pisces is associated with the astrological 12th house. Pisces has been traditionally ruled by the planet Jupiter, but since its discovery, Neptune has been considered a modern ruler of this sign. Some astrologers mostly use one to the exception of the other, but some consider them to be co-rulers of this sign and essentially use both (see Domicile).

Individuals born when the Sun was in this sign are considered Pisces individuals. Under the tropical zodiac, the Sun is in Pisces roughly from February 19 to March 20,[2] and under the sidereal zodiac, it is currently there roughly from March 15 to April 13.

Mythology

See also: Pisces (constellation)#Mythology

One of the most popular stories regarding the mythological origin of Pisces is the story of Aphrodite and Eros. The story involves Aphrodite and her son Eros escaping from the terrible monster Typhon by turning themselves into fish and hiding underwater until it was safe to come back to the surface. As fish, they tied their tails together with a cord so that they wouldn't lose one another while swimming in the darkness of the deep water. Upon hearing their tale, Zeus rewarded the pair by placing them among the stars as the constellation of Pisces. [3]

As a constellation, Pisces has been almost universally associated with female deities.

The pisces symbol ( the H ) is often assosiated with Helen of troy. Beauty and love.

Compatibilities

Pisces is widely considered to be naturally compatible with the same element signs, Cancer [7] and Scorpio.[7] Many consider it to also be good with Taurus.[8][9]

There are many variables that determine compatibility in astrology, such as birth dates, birth months, birth years, position of a sign within the Sun, the Moon, Stars, etc. The signs listed as compatible with Pisces do not reflect an individual profile or individual reading as interpreted within astrology, but rather reflect a general guideline and reference to compatibility as dictated by variables such as Qualities and Elements within the Zodiac.
