The Zodiac is an imaginary belt in the sky which represents the orbit of the Sun around the Earth. This system was devised by Claudius Ptolemy, a Roman astrologer, who deemed that the Earth was stationary and all the planets and stars revolved around it. Known as the Ptolemaic System, this system is still used today by astrologers, even though we know now that Earth and all the other planets in our Solar System orbit the Sun. The zodiac belt is divided into 12 sections, of 30° each, with each section named after a constellation - these are the Signs of the Zodiac - known as Sun Signs (not Star Signs!).
Your Sun Sign indicates the sign of the Zodiac the Sun occupied at the time of your birth. The Sun rules your willpower and ego and it is the core of your potential and uniqueness as an individual - who you are and what makes you tick.
Your Sun Sign represents the direction and focus of your life and your determination to achieve your aims and ambitions. It also represents your integrity, your ability to command respect and your ability to impress and influence others. It represents the outer you - how others see you.
|Pisces is the 12th sign of the zodiac, symbolised by the Two Fish. It is a feminine Water sign, ruled by the planet Neptune. People whose birthdays fall between February 20 and March 20 are said to be born under the sign of Pisces. However if you were born on the day when the Sun moved signs you will need to know your time of birth to determine which Sun sign you really are. The Tarot card associated with Pisces is The Moon.|
The Sun in Pisces makes you sympathetic and impressionable with a powerful imagination. You value giving, escaping and mystery, and resent drab reality and suffering - you need to learn to be less self-pitying. You are one of the most compassionate and kindly people, often giving more time to the problems of others than you allow for consideration of your own. Your imagination when positively expressed is an enormous asset, but you must learn not to allow your imagination to work negatively, magnifying small problems into major ones. You can tend to lie to yourself and others, rather than face harsh reality.
Sensitive and romantic, you often seem ready to deceive yourself rather than admit any fault in your partner. You are not especially passionate, your view of sex is essentially a romantic one. As a parent you are very encouraging to your children, but can be too easy going, whilst as a child you tended to embroider the truth and were probably taught to be honest from an early age, and encouraged to use your strong imagination positively.
You have an innate talent for caring and are always ready to listen to other people, so you would make an exceptional counsellor. You love beauty and would work contentedly in any area of the arts. Highly sensitive to atmosphere, your constitution is easily disturbed by tension, and stress can cause you to over eat or drink. Tension should be relieved with inspirational exercise such as yoga or tai chi.
Although everyone born under the same Sun-sign shares some basic traits, the date you were born determines which type of Pisces you really are.
Each sign of the Zodiac comprises thirty degrees and thus each Zodiac Sign can be divided into three subsections called Decans. Each Decan corresponds to 10 degrees or roughly 10 days of a Zodiac Sign's time period. Every sign will have three Decans and each Decan has a planetary ruler which becomes the co-ruler of that particular sign. Decans can provide a more detailed account of an individual's personality traits and character and reveal how people born under the same Zodiac Sign can be very different.
Find the date you were born below to discover the traits of your particular Sun-sign Decan!
1st Decan » 20th - 29th February: Ruled by Neptune you are an intriguing being, at once unassuming and inspirational, a romantic who gives with both hands. You are wise and profound, an attuned lover and adaptable mate. Work with people or animals suits you. Love, not money, is the be-all for you.
2nd Decan » 1st - 10th March: Influenced by the Moon you are gentle and nurturing with a double capacity for kindness. You have a soul-deep response to beauty and an artistic talent that can earn a fortune - although you can create a lovely home on a shoestring. As a lover you are sweet, devoted and aware, with a talent for inventing and then fulfilling intriguing fantasies.
3rd Decan » 11th - 20th March: Influenced by Pluto you are atypically shrewd and intense, spookily intuitive, powerfully passionate and phenomenally smart at work. And you're sexually magnetic! You are a loyal lover and dynamic worker who can seemingly spin flax into gold time after time.
