Since the days when gods walked the world, Pisceans have been charitable souls who want to do good in the world. Fish are honoured with a star sign in commemoration of saving the goddess Aphrodite and her son, Eros, from Typhon, the father of all monsters. Charities, hospitals and good causes are often founded or financed by these softhearted creatures, but less often run by them: fish tend to be loners or live in schools without the hierarchies typical of the creatures of the land.

Leadership is not the strong suit of the Pisces character and the responsibility and conformity required to be top dog will not usually be a formula for personal fulfillment. Senator Edward Kennedy was a Piscean: always denied the top job, he nevertheless achieved a lot of good in the pond in which he found himself. Pisceans are happy in a group, and they are happy swimming the unknown depths. Yuri Gagarin, David Cronenberg and Dr. Seuss were born under this sign. What do they have in common except that all seem in their element when surrounded by things not fully understood? Perhaps this is just a requirement for the creativity that Pisceans have in great measure and for which they find more outlets than any other sign. In relationships, this fish is loyal and sensitive. A caveman with his club should look elsewhere for companionship, even though the fluid nature of the Piscean personality will go with the flow most of the time and is able to get along with just about anyone. When the current changes, so will this flexible fish, which is not to say that there is not a time to swim upstream and jump those rapids. When that happens, anyone standing in the way will not even know where and how she went. The Piscean’s greatest defence is her ability to escape and she will slip away from conflict, and sometimes from reality. When this catches up with her, you can expect a dark period followed by an even greater resurgence of charm and energy: don’t expect so-called reality to change her character. To make your Pisces self or your Pisces mate happy, just provide a warm, flexible environment and be prepared to enjoy lots of creativity and all the mysteries of the deep in which this creature is at home. The symbol for this sign is often two fishes, symbolizing the ability to be more than one thing at a time. If you don’t understand that, and who does, just enjoy it. Freedom and creativity are the best qualities of this lovable, sensitive slitherer. Michelangelo had the sun, Mercury and Venus in Pisces. He explained his creativity and life thus: I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.
