Pisces are born February 19-March 20 and have Neptune as their ruling planet and water as their dominant element. Those with a sun sign in Pisces are said to be sensitive, intuitive, creative, wise, and gentle.
Pisceans are the supreme empaths of the Zodiac and are known for taking on the emotions and feelings of others. Their deeply compassionate hearts make them good listeners and loyal friends, but they can be taken advantage of by those with less than altruistic motives.
Because they are a water sign, Pisceans are feelers first, led by emotion and intuition. With a naturally developed EQ (emotional quotient), they make excellent therapists and mediators if they can resist taking on the energetic baggage of their clients. Spiritually in tune, they are often most comfortable swimming in abstract waters that others find confounding. Boundaries are their weakness, as they struggle to both recognize them and set them.
Easily wounded, the innate healing gifts of a Pisces may go unnoticed and unused if they slip into their martyr shadow. In this role, Pisces is ever the victim and may turn to substance abuse or other addictive behaviors to numb those overwhelming emotions. Piscean men, in particular, have a difficult time coping with the cultural standards foisted upon them, as their values are naturally counter to those set by society.
