What does Pisces mean?
Two fish are depicted in the constellation Pisces, thus its name. Sometimes referred to as the Fishes.
A constellation is a group of stars that appear close to one another in the sky, especially a named group.
Pisces is one of the 12 zodiacal constellations, or constellations that occur within the zodiac, a particular section of the sky.
Pisces According to Astrology
In astronomy, the zodiac is the region of sky along which the apparent motion of the sun, moon, and planets can be observed.
Despite its origins in astronomy, the term zodiac is most commonly linked with and used in the context of astrology, the pseudoscience in which the placements of celestial bodies at specific times are believed to impact or be correlated with human behavior and events.
In astrology, zodiac refers to a diagram (typically circular) depicting the zodiac belt and displaying the symbols associated with each of the 12 constellations or parts, known as zodiac signs.
The sign of Pisces is one of these. It is the zodiac’s twelfth sign, located between Aquarius and Aries.
Pisces is the location of the vernal equinox, the point where the Sun’s annual apparent course takes it north of the celestial equator and from which celestial longitude and right ascension are computed.
The constellation comprises only dim stars, with no notable clusters; Eta Piscium, the brightest star, has a brightness of 3.6.
What is the 12th Zodiac? Pisces (February 19 to March 20)

It is commonly associated with the Greek tale of Aphrodite and Eros, who plunged into a river to escape the monster Typhon and transformed into fish, or, alternately, the two fish that took them to safety.

What is the Pisces Sign?
The symbol for Pisces depicts two fish swimming in opposite directions while bound together.
It illustrates the dual nature of Pisces. A person associated with this sign is a mediator between two realities, serving as a bridge between life and death in particular.
This symbol consists of two crescent moons and a line connecting them to signify two distinct mental states and the connection between them.
The crescent-shaped line also refers to lunar cycles, so this is a symbol for cycles in general.
The symbol of Neptune is a trident, a spearfishing implement wielded by both Neptune and Poseidon.
It symbolizes the holy trinity by linking birth, life, and death with the ground, the sky, and the sea.
It consists of a crescent and a cross with three upward-pointing arrows. It refers to the transcendence of mind and receptivity (crescent) above matter (cross).
Arrows symbolize an extraordinary upward thrust and, in a sense, our desire to paradise.
This can be regarded as the mind’s need to strive for its higher purpose and achieve it through the cross of matter, therefore we might also say that this sign represents our need to accomplish our dreams.
Pisces’s Ruling Planet
