Because it’s the last sign of the zodiac, Pisces is perhaps one of the most unique. Since it trails behind all other signs, it picks up the energies of all of the preceding signs.

With the fish as its symbol, Pisces is unsurprisingly a water sign. Water signs tend to be emotional and intuitive, and much like the depths of the ocean can often be quite mysterious. 

Neptune is Pisces' ruling planet, which adds to the air of mystery Pisces people often give off. Neptune governs things like dreams and illusions, making Pisces a deep thinker.

Pisces are idealists, and you can expect them to be the first to offer a helping hand. However, because they’re so emotional, they’re sometimes hard to be around, especially when you’re in the mood to have fun and take things easy.

What are the details of the Pisces horoscope?

  • Element: Water
  • Ruling Planet: Neptune
  • Colors: Mauve, Sea Green
  • Day: Thursday
  • Strengths: Wise, imaginative, compassionate
  • Weaknesses: Gullible, unrealistic, self-pitying
  • Birthstone: Aquamarine
  • Horoscope Dates: February 19 - March 20

What are the Pisces personality traits?

Because Pisces are so in tune with their emotions, they’re super romantic. Pisces people plan the best dates and really know how to sweep you off your feet! That and their wisdom makes Pisces a great friend. They live for being there for those who need them, and are great at offering comforting words and a helping hand.

Their intuitiveness combined with having Neptune as a ruling planet makes most Pisces rather introverted. They crave alone time which they often spend napping or listening to music and decoding all of the lyrics.

That being said, Pisces also has a few negative traits to watch out for (don’t we all?). For one, Pisces people aren’t too keen on being stuck in the reality of things. They’re big dreamers, which sometimes makes them out of touch with what’s really going on around them.

Because Pisces love being there for others, they expect others to be the same way. This leads them to be gullible and susceptible to being played or scammed. They’re also prone to playing the martyr and often fall victim to self-pity.

While they don’t like being criticized, they’re tolerant and forgiving, so whenever you need to bring a Pisces back to reality they’ll always forgive you.

What does the Pisces symbol mean in astrology?

The Pisces symbol is two fish swimming in opposite directions, which illustrates the connection Pisces has with reality and fantasy.

Pisces people are grounded in the sense that they’re great at picking up on the way other people feel, yet at the same time often find themselves thinking in more abstract, unrealistic terms.

What does Pisces compatibility look like?

Pisces people are very in tune with their emotions, making them great romantic partners. They need someone who can be on their level emotionally, but also keep them grounded. For that reason, Pisces and Taurus compatibility is the most promising for a relationship.

Taureans are extremely sensual and can connect with Pisces people on a deep emotional level. Like Pisces, Taurus loves romance, music, and really anything that can get the sense going. Taureans are also incredibly patient and can keep a Pisces in check when they go off into their own little world.

However, the Pisces sign is mutable, which means it’s open to change — something Taurus can’t stand. But because both signs are able to form a deep emotional bond, they can easily work together to move past this.

What is the best career for the Pisces zodiac sign?

Pisces’s strongest trait is the ability to connect with others’ emotions. That combined with their love of music makes success in the music industry highly likely. Their intuitiveness, lack of judgment, and willingness to help also makes them great therapists and teachers.

Pisces people don’t take criticism well, so they often find it hard to be subordinate. They work best in environments where they are their own boss and free to explore their fantasies.
