Pisces is a Water sign

People of Water signs tend to be emotional, sensitive and more spiritual than average. Often they relate better to people of other Water signs. Their feelings run deep and they can be easily hurt (though they often hide this vulnerability). They tend to be very loving and romantic and take relationships very seriously.

The fire signs: Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
The earth signs: Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn
The air signs: Gemini, Libra, Aquarius
The water signs: Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces

Pisces is a Negative sign

People of negative signs tend to be introvert, responsible, practical, serious and more likely to be pessimistic (when compared to people of positive signs). They typically relate better to people of other negative signs (though their soulmates are typically of positive signs).

The positive signs: Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, Aquarius
The negative signs: Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn, Pisces

Pisces is a Mutable sign

People of mutable signs tend to be the most flexible and adaptable to change. They don't feel the urge to constantly create change (like cardinal signs do) or to constantly stick with a viewpoint (like fixed signs do). They're a healthy balance of the two extremes. On the negative side they can be seen as indecisive or flighty by those of fixed or cardinal signs.

The cardinal signs: Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn
The fixed signs: Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius
The mutable signs: Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces

Pisces is ruled by Neptune

Neptune, the God of the sea, symbolizes the dissolution of reality. The spiritual and mystical, and the knowledge that our senses alone cannot navigate the hidden realms. It represents illusions, dreams, idealism, spirituality and imagination. Due to the nature of such things it also has a strong affinity to confusion and uncertainty.

Pisces is associated with the 12th house

The 12 house represents karma. In many ways it's the most spiritual and scary house, it represents endings and beginnings. Also called the house of self undoing it encompasses the concept of soul level challenges and the quest to be more than what our human selves allow. It's the realm of fantasy, escapism and the soul. Everything which ignores daily life due to the instinctive knowledge that there is more out there. The 12th house is about recycling (your soul!) it's where the circle of the zodiac ends, and where it begins.

Are you really a Pisces?

If you were born on the first or last day of Pisces then it's worth noting that the signs do not neatly correspond to calendar days. You may wish to check out the articles on the Aquarius Pisces cusp or Pisces Aries cusp.
