Pisces pisces
(Born between February 20 - March 20)
Pisces is a feminine water sign, the twelfth and last sign in the zodiac. In ancient tradition this sign was ruled by Jupiter, but is now considered to be ruled by Neptune. It is represented by two fish opposing each other, a double-bodied sign. As a way of illustrating this two-sided sign, these people tend to feel sorry for themselves yet are capable of generous acts of sacrifice and service to others. They get discouraged easily and drink too much or take drugs. They have escapist tendencies. But once they get out of themselves, they are generous, kind and sympathetic to their loved ones. They are sensitive and fall in love at the drop of a hat.

Pisces folks are gentle, dreamy and at times distant from others. They often drift away in thought. They often forget to show up for a date or meeting. They change their minds a lot. In short, like a fish, they are really hard to pin down for any kind of commitment. But they don't mean to be rude or thoughtless. They are naturally affectionate and loyal.

Extremely imaginative, they are creative in many art forms. They are sentimental. They write poems and love stories, enjoy dancing, yoga and going to the movies. Typical vacations include ashrams, religious retreats and water locales. They enjoy sailing, swimming and relaxing on a beach, either at mountain lakes or the ocean. They are very spiritual, as well as psychic. They may be active at a church, but more often, they spend time alone, meditating, praying or communing with God and nature. Nurses, priests, nuns, holistic healers, social workers, sailors, fishermen, people in the shipping and cruise industry, swimming instructors, poets, dancers and filmmakers are ruled by Pisces.

This Month's Horoscope
The Mercury Rx in Virgo may affect relationships. Nothing bad, mind you, although secrets and surprises may come to light. There might be a misunderstanding or confusion with your partner. Just be honest and don’t try to hide things. In a rare instance, this might be a separation period when you are planning to get divorced. Organize papers, visit your lawyer and get your ducks all in a row. Don’t go to court or finalize until after September 4. On a lighter note, because of Venus, romance and social life are favored. Go out and have a little fun.
