About Pisces zodiac sign

Pisces, which is the Latin word for fish, is the zodiacal archetype of the mystic. One of the earliest star signs on record, our mystical Pisces and its symbolic fishes date all the way back to c. 2300 BC where they appear on an Ancient Egyptian coffin lid.

A mutable water sign ruled by the dreamy planet of Neptune, Pisces embodies feeling through the expression of art, poetry, romanticism, fantasy, and otherworldly activity. 

Often wearing their hearts on their sleeves, Pisces wants to bring beauty, compassion and magic into the world in order to heal, inspire and bring transformation. 

If Pisces was a stock character type in a Hollywood film, it would be right at home being the ‘Manic Pixie Dream Girl’ and in terms of zodiac sign compatibility - romantics need only apply.

Ruler of the twelfth house of the unconscious, watery Pisceans are guided by a compelling surge of emotions, psychology, and creativity. But it’s not all self-indulgent personal exploration here, this is a serious invitation into some deep and transformative life-changing work. 

As Swiss psychoanalyst Carl Jung once said, "until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate." So embrace the Piscean wave down into the depths of your soul and retrieve your creative potential, your spiritual spark, and your deep-feeling nature, carrying it back up to the surface in order to flow forth out into the world. 

When does Pisces season 2023 start?

Hey there all of you Aquarians! There is a lot of dreamy energy to swim around in this Pisces season and although it can be a fantastical zone to almost entirely lose yourself, be mindful to keep one foot firmly on earth.

It will all get a bit easier when Mercury enters Pisces on March 2, which will make communications around work and ideas flow more directly. Get organized under this aspect as it will be very beneficial to your budget.

Water is your element, so make sure you get enough of it this season. Stay hydrated! If you like a bit of an alcoholic drink, be mindful of your consumption even if you are celebrating your birthday. For some of you, when the strict planet of Saturn enters your sign on March 7, it could bring up areas in your life that need an overhaul. Think wellness! 

Mantra, "I celebrate myself, I take care of myself."
