The Sun is in this last sign of the
zodiac from 20 February until 20 March each year. The symbol for Pisces
is the Fish.
- In Pisces, the Sun is sensitive and
idealistic. You are "tuned in" to your environment, and aware of
everything happening in your world, and to everyone around you. Pisces
is the dream sign of the zodiac. You may be one of the true dreamers of
the world, often getting caught up in impractical plans and ideas. You
absorb the ideas and the mental outlook of those around you, for better
or for worse. The decisions that you make may be workable, if sometimes
emotional and erratic. Often these decisions are made on hunches and
feelings with little or no foundation in fact. Creative, spiritual and
often a bit mystical, you can be impractical and illogical.
- You're a moody and introspective person,
and it's hard for others to understand you. It may be hard for you to
understand yourself sometimes. Your temperament varies from being
optimistic to being acutely pessimistic.
- Although you may be very shy and
unassuming, you care deeply about your stature and succeeding in your
endeavors. You may feel vulnerable and anxious when you are unsure of
your status and circumstances. You have a deeply hidden inner pride and
when this is attacked in any way, you react emotionally.
- Compassionate, tolerant, kind, and
loving, you are easily influenced by others because you don't want to
hurt anyone. Always charming and likable, you are good to those in
distress. You are as fond of animals as you are people. You are
sympathetic to the world's unfortunate, including every stray animal and
helpless soul you meet. You are more concerned with others' well-being
than your own, and you want to save people from themselves. You are
easily taken in by a hard-luck story and often leave yourself open to be
used. You are always there with a shoulder to cry on for your friends in
need. Frequently people take advantage of this compassionate
- If you are a typical Pisces, you're
likely to suffer from an inferiority complex. You probably lack an
adequate sense of self-confidence, as you are so very sensitive, shy and
introspective. You never feel that you do enough, so you often overwork,
putting stress on your physical body. In your quiet way, you accomplish
much. Having a natural tendency to become a workaholic, you must have a
generous amount of escape time, preferably with total solitude.
- Pisces, more than any other sign, draws
strength or weakness from the rest of the horoscope. The nature of
Pisces is very adaptable and pliable. You may have to fight for a sense
of stability and to resist the impulses of the moment.
In Pisces, Mercury produces a mind that
is receptive and ruled by feelings. Your thinking is colored by psychic
tendencies, and you usually follow your instincts rather than any sense
of logic or reason. You are a dreamer who can get lost in your
fantasies. You don't pay much attention to the mundane detail of the
everyday world that you live in. Your thought patterns and ideas are
opaque and vague.
Your love of music and other art forms may
be very strong. You have a fantastic imagination and you are artistically
oriented. You see shapes and hear sounds that others don't, for you are
tuned in a most sensitive way to sound and color. Art or composition may
be easier ways for you to communicate than oral expression. Creative
imagination is at its strongest in this sign.
You are frequently too sensitive and too
easily hurt, becoming moody and negative when you are. This keen
sensitivity may put you in touch with matter in the unseen realm. You are
more psychic than most people, and you are certainly very intuitive and
perceptive. Meditation, prayer and spiritual thought comes naturally for
There is a certain naļvete in your nature.
You are trusting and gentle, seeing the good in everyone. As a result, you
are easily fooled and misled. You can be taken in by a good hard-luck
story, and convinced by any phony scheme that comes along. You are
vulnerable in many of your business and personal affairs.
- If Venus is in Pisces in your chart it
may show a very compassionate and tender-hearted nature. You have a
strong need for love and understanding, and without this you can feel
lost. Thus, you may much of your time falling into and out of love. No
one can experience the extreme highs and low lows faced in the love life
of the Venus in Pisces.
- This sensitivity marks you as a most
understanding person, but one who is highly dependent and in need of a
caring partner. This vulnerability is a very attractive and attracting
trait. With your warmth and graciousness, you have little trouble
establishing close relationships. You are inclined to become somewhat
dependent in a relationship.
- If this is not the case, then you may
attract a partner who becomes dependent on you. This sign, more than any
other, is called on to make sacrifices for the sake of loved ones. You
are more likely than most to be attracted to people who take advantage
of you. Your heart rules your head, and there is little that can be done
about this. You have a talent for collecting those who are downtrodden,
unfortunate, or in some sort of need. Using good judgment in matters of
the heart will have to be a learned trait, as it doesn't come
- Extreme sensitivity can leave you open to
hurt. There is a tendency to suffer in silence and become very reticent.
When affairs don't go well for you in a relationship, you act and feel
like a martyr, and you may sometimes push this attitude a little too
far. You have a fear of rejection that can make it hard to express
feeling that are so deep in this placement. Strong feelings sometimes
cloud reality. Your intuition is highly developed, and you relate deeply
to art, poetry, nature and music. You may have special talents or just a
wonderful sense of appreciation.
- A Pisces Moon indicates that you are
especially sensitive, perceptive and perhaps even dreamy. You are very
responsive to the depths of human experience, having an understanding
and affection for nearly all people.
With the Moon in Pisces, you can be overly
optimistic, sometimes looking at the world through "rose colored glasses."
Emotionally naive, you continually overlook other people's shortcomings
and deficiencies. You are essentially so romantic that you may rarely see
life as it really is. You are tremendously unselfish, trusting and
open-handed. Sometimes you can be a little too generous, especially with
your boundless sympathy. This is a very passive position, and if you are
not careful, others may attempt to take advantage of you. When they do,
you are always so easily hurt; and you may spend much to much time feeling
sorry for yourself.
You are neither analytical nor critical, but
maybe a little psychic. Most astrologers agree that this is the most
psychic Moon of all. Highly sensitive, you connect with others on an
unconscious, emotional level. You actually feel what they feel. Thus, you
have a most sympathetic and compassionate nature, and these fine instincts
can be invaluable to you in the everyday world. In many situations, you
can be too giving and overly-idealistic. You may have difficulty seeing
your people in a clear way, preferring instead to live within a fantasy
that you have created.
You expect much of yourself, even
perfection, and sometimes you may get down on yourself because of
- In Pisces, Mars produces emotions that
are unpredictable and often intense. Emotional energy is high, sometimes
too high. Mentally, Mars in Pisces does well, but on the physical and
practical side, this placement often comes up short.

the arts. You may find yourself very much attracted to music and the arts.
You may relate to many of the world's fine artists who need the isolation
and introspection so much a part of this placement. You have a natural
sensitivity to color, tone and rhythm that may be of benefit to you in
In this sign, Mars responds in a confused
manner. Assertive action is drowned in this sign that is so receptive,
emotional, sensitive, and even psychic. The result of the placement is
often a quiet exterior, but with much restlessness inside. Physical
strength is rare with this position. Resentment runs high. Excessive
emotions are a constant problem and a good deal of solitude is frequently
necessary to sort matters out. Mars in Pisces has trouble asserting
itself, and it is likely that you are somewhat shy and
Action is expressed in "behind the scenes"
roles where you can work with subtlety, and your naturally intuitive
sensitivity. Much of your attitude stems from your keen sensitivity to the
feelings of others. You clearly know what the other person is feeling, and
therefore you are always ready to render assistance to those who are most
in need. You are apt to express the energies of Mars most actively in
support of the defenseless or the underprivileged. In this regard, Mars in
Pisces is often found in fields such as psychology and
Mars in Pisces is not a highly sexed sign.
Certainly, you are romantic, but in order for you to be satisfied, the
greater need is emotional rather than physical. You're very idealistic
about love and relationships. In many ways, you view of sexual matters is
more like a fantasy with such high expectations that it is rarely achieved
in real life.
- Jupiter is in Pisces in your chart. This
position suggests that you are in some ways a good Samaritan type,
wanting to help others in some quiet and unassuming way. You are more or
less a behind the scenes player, not really wanting to be in the
spotlight. You are easygoing, but at the same time sensitive. You do not
possess much worldly ambition, but you are the type that doesn't ever
seem to need much to be content. Mystical tendencies or emotional
religious convictions often accompany this position. You tend to
champion the underdog and may be too compassionate for your own good.
You have a need for periodic seclusion.
- Saturn in Pisces produces a sensitivity
in your dealing with world at large. When making your way in the world,
you may feel vulnerable and defenseless. This a depressive placement
that can make you feel a little paranoid sometimes, often looking on the
dark side of a situation rather than the bright side. You may sometimes
feel like you are a victim of circumstances or a martyr of sorts. If
properly channeled, your sensitive side can be a plus. The productive
aspect of this placement is in the ability to exercise compassion in
society with a pragmatic approach. Your road to success may be in the
artistic, spiritual, or even the psychic. Religious beliefs may be the
cornerstone of your life, filling a need for structure and security.
Your test in life may be one of developing confidence in your innate
abilities. You may need to learn to trust and get in touch with your
subconscious. The source of your creativity may be hidden there.
Many of your peers born during the years when
Uranus was in Pisces have an intuitive intellect contributing to spiritual
changes. The utopian hopes of this group may be difficult to realize as
they can predicated on illusory notions.
