Pisces Zodiac Symbol: The Fish
"The children of the Fishes are endowed with a friendly disposition, swiftness of movement, and lives in which everything is apt to change." (Manilius, 1st Century)
The symbol of Pisces is often two fish depicted swimming in different directions. This indicates the Pisces trait of deciding upon a plan of action, and then moving in the opposite direction. It can also suggest the tensions between two different traits, or trains of thought, within a Pisces character.
Astrological Element: Water
Water as an element is connected with the emotions. Water signs have fluid, flowing emotions, but are ultimately wavering, which goes along with the indecisive actions of Pisces. Water signs, like rivers, let their feelings run deep and have great empathy and understanding.
As well as a stone linked to the Pisces zodiac sign, it is also the gem that represents the 3rd year of marriage. It is a stone strongly linked to emotional well being and inner calm.
In a physical sense Moonstone is said to balance hormones, aid the digestive system, and reduce aging conditions in the hair, teeth and skin.
A Pisces is an emotive being. They are highly sensitive creatures with a great empathy and generosity of spirit. As one of the kindest signs in the zodiac they are often helping others, and will make friends for life.
Known as the poets of the zodiac they can have an idealistic, escapist view of life, which can be their downfall. A Pisces child should be taught that deceit is wrong, as this is a sign also prone to secretive and deceptive activities.
Compatibility with Pisces:
The best matches for a Pisces are those that won't be put off by the high emotions they will level at a romantic partnership. Pisces friends will often lack confidence in their abilities, and will appreciate those who aid or encourage their artistic endeavors.
A water sign like Pisces will be a good match with other water signs (Scorpio or Cancer) or Earth signs (Taurus, Capricorn, and Virgo).
The core traits of each of these elements will complement each other, and help guide a Pisces through life.
