Pisces is the 12th sign of the Zodiac. It is the final sign in the circle of the Zodiac and it brings together all that is learned by the first eleven Signs to help man and woman reach the pinnacle of our potential.
We Pisceans are selfless and spiritual, often strongly intuitive and we are receptive to the collective unconscious. Pisces is the Sign of dreams and secrets, and it represents much that is hidden, both strengths and enemies. As the twelfth Sign, Pisces also rules the twelfth House:
THE HOUSE OF THE UNCONSCIOUS.
The Astrological Symbol of Pisces is the Pair of Fish which reflect the dual nature of life; each swimming in different directions representing reality and nonreality, consciousness and the unconscious.
We are also ruled by the Planets Jupiter and Neptune. In ancient Roman mythology, Jupiter (and his Greek equivalent, Zeus) was the king of the Gods. Neptune (and his Greek equivalent, Poseidon) was the God of the Sea. Jupiter rules Pisces and Sagittarius; Pisces is the feminine, or night aspect while Sagittarius is the masculine or day.
Of course the Element associated with Pisces is Water. Water signs are emotional and tend to respond to the world through emotion, rather than physical action, practicality, or intellect. We are compassionate, sensitive and imaginative as well as sympathetic to the feelings of others. We tend to be romantic and sentimental, but we can be disorganized or procrastinate when things become difficult.
We Pisceans tend to be shy and quiet. We are sometimes elusive, refusing to show our true selves. We are modest and thoughtful, sometimes displaying remarkable musical talent.
In our leisure we may work to alleviate our emotional stress through exercise. We especially enjoy sports that bring us within our own element of water, such as, swimming and sailing.
The great strength of the Pisces-born is in our compassion. We reach out to other people more skillfully than most other signs, and especially enjoy helping others reach their fullest potential. Our natural sensitivity makes us one of the most understanding characters of the Zodiac. Our colors are white and purple.
