The Pisces zodiac sign is filled with dreamers, artists and mystics. You’ll often find a Pisces drifting off to their daydreams, which are magical and fantastic in nature. Because they are so preoccupied with their internal world, they are very much often introverted, and therefore can seem rather mysterious to other zodiac signs. Even though their inner life is filled with so many grand visions, they oftentimes find it hard to share that with others.
In an effort to communicate their vivid inner life, they often turn to the arts, which allows them to reach the sublime; the closest that they can get to depicting the richness of their world. Pisces zodiac signs are incredibly empathetic, compassionate and sensitive to the emotions of those around them. They often cannot bear to see people around them unhappy. Being so imaginative, they can sometimes find it difficult to exist in the “real” world, and often require encouragement in order for them to take action. Sometimes, for the Pisces zodiac sign, if they don’t receive the encouragement and inspiration they need, they may find themselves retreating to their daydreams when the going gets tough.
Because a Pisces zodiac sign is so full of faith and empathy, they will regularly be a magnet for a wide range of lovers; even some that are hurt and need assistance. As long as the two lovers know what their roles are, this can be a lasting union. The love and care given by a Pisces zodiac sign is sincere, complete, and precisely what the other individual requests and needs. Pisces makes for mindful listeners; the kind that the vast majority of people cannot be. Ironically they will also experience difficulty opening up to new individuals themselves, particularly if that they have been hurt themselves a few times.

When it comes to relationships, the Pisces zodiac sign has a strong confidence in love that is unmistakable and remains unshaken - even if they have deep disappointments. Their sensitivity means that they will also be blessed in appreciating love more so than the other zodiac signs. Even without the physical delights of love, they can interface with someone else on a profound level, detecting their emotional states and shaping a delicate bond that others may not be able to see. Their faith in love will frequently lead them towards lovers with mysteries or painful pasts, or deep secrets that they have to hide from the remainder of the world.

A Pisces lover is delicate, kind, sensitive and emotional. Despite the fact that a significant number of these people will have many relationships that don't last too long, they are in a consistent search for intimate romance and won't agree to anything that doesn’t live up to that standard. Their sex life is also marked by the strong feelings that they bring into the physical act of sex; making it exceptional. Out of their need to find the relationships that they dream of, they have a tendency to admire and idealize their lovers; meaning that some of their lovers can exploit sensitive Pisces and their emotions.
Guided by their intuition and frequently daydreaming, the Pisces zodiac sign is most at home in careers where they can bring their innovative natures into beneficial causes. Some great professions for this sign include legal counselor, architect, veterinarian, artist, therapist, and designer. The key expression for this sign is "I trust." It's essential for the Pisces zodiac sign to feel emphatically about their undertakings.
Roused by the need to create a positive effect in the lives of those around them, the Pisces zodiac sign is generous and charitable and will regularly go well beyond what is expected of them. Sensitive, deeply empathetic, determined, devoted and reliable, this is one zodiac sign that truly knows how to concentrate on the business at hand. They can be phenomenal problem solvers.
Generally, the Pisces zodiac sign doesn’t give too much thought to money. They are more worried about their dreams and objectives than with finances. However, if money plays a strong role in them reaching their aspirations (as it often does), they will make sure that they have the money that it requires. They can be of two personalities here; on one hand the Pisces zodiac sign will spend without caring too much about where it is going, but they can also sometimes turn out to be very frugal and cautious. But never to worry, when it comes down to it, what they have will always be sufficient for what they need in everyday life.
Since the zodiac constellations were first cataloged by astronomers in ancient Greece, many of the stories that are associated with them come their mythology.
According to legend, Typhon, a giant serpent that was brother to Zeus, descended on Mount Olympus in order to rain destruction on all the gods. All of the gods and goddesses begin to flee. In order to escape Typhon, Aphrodite, the goddess of love and beauty and Eros, her brother and the god of sexual attraction, transformed themselves into fish and dove into the sea. To make sure that they didn’t lose each other in the ocean, they tied themselves together with a cord. The knot that bound the two cords became one of the stars of the constellation, Alpha Piscum.
In Syrian mythology, an giant enigmatic egg appears on the shore of the Euphrates river. It is found by two fish named Aphros and Bythos, who nurture and hatch the egg that contains Astarte. This myth is later adopted into Greek Myth, where two centaurs with lobster claws and an additional fish tail, pull Aphrodite’s shell from the sea.
