Signs of the Zodiac
PISCES (February 20-March 20)
The Fish. Ruling planet: Neptune. Element: Water. Quality: Creativity. Ability: Understanding. You are the romantic dreamers of the zodiac. As with Aquarius, some of you more go-getter types might prefer to go back and read the Capricorn section, but the sensitive ones can stay here (there are two distinct types of Pisces). You have the ability to visit the Muses and bring back a fine creativity.Unlike the other signs of the zodiac, you possess no singular energy of your own; rather, you are a combination of all of the signs. Because you have an overwhelming desire to merge consciously or unconsciously, you intuit what others need from you and you act accordingly. The compassion and understanding that is your ultimate gift can sometimes be problematic until you have learned how to define yourself.
