People with a Pisces Sun zodiac sign are individuals born between February 19th to March 20th. And, if you know someone who is this zodiac sign, and you try to tell them about their personality, you can invoke a range of reactions when the word 'astrology' gets bounced around. 

There’s the person who knows everything and anything when it comes to astrology, horoscopes, and the zodiac. They know all the traits of the twelve zodiac signs and are likely to bring it up in conversation to analyze compatibility, especially when it comes to dating.

They believe in astrology with the same sense of faith and conviction that a Christian, Jewish, or Muslim person can have for their respective religions.
