If you were born between February 19th and March 20th, your astrological sun sign is Pisces! Represented by a fish-shaped constellation, Pisces is a water sign, along with Scorpio and Cancer. Water is the element of emotion, and all of these signs are emotionally intelligent and empathetic. Pisces have particularly gentle and compassionate natures. They are selfless friends; however, their trust and empathy can sometimes attract toxic people who will try to take advantage of them. If a Pisces has encountered this problem too many times, they may close themselves off from others to avoid getting hurt. Pisces are ruled by the planets Neptune and Jupiter. Neptune particularly shapes Pisces’ personality, fostering intuition and creativity. Because of these gifts, Pisces often pursue careers as musicians and artists. There is something otherworldly about Pisces; they have a deep spirituality and may seem to live in a dream. Pisces develop a profound wisdom through introspection and divine connections. Pisces’ emotional natures make them extremely sensitive. This trait can be positive, allowing Pisces to better connect with and help others, but it also has a negative side. Pisces can easily become melancholy or paranoid, and they often struggle with criticism. If they are not careful, Pisces are likely to develop a victim complex. However, Pisces’ emotional intelligence, profound empathy, and divine inspiration usually prevail over these faults.
