//Astrological background:------------------------------------------

Pisces is the twelfth astrological sign in the Zodiac, which originates from the Pisces constellation. In western astrology this sign is no longer aligned with the constellation because of the precession of the equinoxes. Pisces is represented by a pair of fish that are swimming in opposite directions, but remain held together at the tail by a cord. In astrology, Pisces is considered a feminine sign or negative sign. It is also a water sign, and is one of four mutable signs. Being the twelfth sign, Pisces is associated with the astrological 12th house. Pisces has been traditionally ruled by the planet Jupiter, but since its discovery, Neptune has been considered a modern ruler of this sign. Some astrologers mostly use one to the exception of the other, but some consider them to be co-rulers of this sign and essentially use both (see Domicile).

Individuals born when the Sun was in this sign are considered Pisces individuals. Under the tropical zodiac, the Sun is in Pisces roughly from February 19 to March 20, and under the sidereal zodiac, it is currently there roughly from March 15 to April 13.

pisces and cancer: Sweet as sugar is a Cancer/Pisces relationship! Both signs are very gentle, caring and loving. Practical Cancer is down to earth and starry-eyed Pisces is the dreamer. When these two work together, they can easily see turn their dreams into reality. There’s no real leader in a Cancer/Pisces duo and sometimes they need a bit of a take-charge attitude to get things done. If they both can learn to speak up and take some control, they have a chance at lasting romance.

pisces and scorpio: It’s smooth sailing when these two Water signs pair up! A Scorpio/Pisces couple will tend to have a lot of respect and understanding for each other. Scorpio has the drive and the passion to turn a creative Pisces dreams into reality – and it can be really cosmic! Pisces is a gentle sign and that is a good balance for a sometimes moody Scorpio. Pisces often needs a leader to take charge – and that’s just what Scorpio is all about. When these two Water signs come together, it can be a beautiful deep, blue sea.

pisces and Libra: Sweet is the word that comes to mind when Libra and Pisces meet up for romance. These two may be a little slow out of the gate – nurturing a friendship long before love blossoms. These two make a happy combination of creative dreams. Pisces is the dreamer and Libra has the creativity to bring those dreams to life. You may find these two are often “do-gooders” when they get together. It wouldn’t be unlikely to see them doing volunteer work, donating time to charity or just doing something nice for someone else. Both Libra and Pisces dislike arguing, so not too much of that will happen here. However, all of this sweetness can go sour if they don’t keep the excitement flowing!

Pisces and Aquarius: This match is a very sweet romance that is full of compassion and creativity. Aquarius and Pisces are both filled with ideas and Aquarius is excellent at putting ideas into motion! Pisces' dreamy way of looking at life gives Aquarius a lot to work with. Together, they can make dreams become reality. This relationship is built on not just attraction, but a strong friendship as well. They both have a lot in common and love learning from the other.

Pisces and Aries: A gentle Pisces and a wild Aries? Could this ever work? These two signs – as opposite as they can be – are often quite a good match! Aries loves to be the leader and Pisces often needs someone to take charge. Pisces’ soothing nature is just what a fiery Aries needs to calm down when emotions are flying high. In turn, Aries is often protective of the special jewel found in Pisces' sweetness. As different as these two are, they often make a great couple.

Pisces and Taurus: When a down-to-earth Taurus and a dreamy Pisces come together, they often find harmony. Level headed Taurus is more grounded and has a mind for what is important in life. Day-dreaming Pisces can show Taurus how to reach for the stars. Together they have balance. Pisces is the balloon – always floating around in the clouds. Taurus is the string, grounding it back to earth. What would one be without the other?

Pisces and Leo: A Leo/Pisces match is a sweet and spicy combination. Leo the lion has the leadership skills that a gentle Pisces needs. Pisces, a mild water sign, has the dreamy qualities that Leo loves. Leos are strong and assertive and like to be the center of attention. Pisces are adaptable and often dislike taking center stage. Together it’s a happy balance. Pisces can mellow Leo’s over-the-top attitude and Leo will bring excitement and surprise to Pisces usually well thought out plans. Together, they are the perfect blend of sugar and spice.


//Mythology:-----------------------------------------------------------

One of the most popular stories regarding the mythological origin of Pisces is the story of Aphrodite and Eros. The story involves Aphrodite and her son Eros escaping from the terrible monster Typhon by turning themselves into fish and hiding underwater until it was safe to come back to the surface. As fish, they tied their tails together with a cord so that they wouldn't lose one another while swimming in the darkness of the deep water. Upon hearing their tale, Zeus rewarded the pair by placing them among the stars as the constellation of Pisces.

As a constellation, Pisces has been almost universally associated with female deities.
