The symbol of Pisces-two fish swimming in opposite directions- suggests the main tention in the picses character: a natural Perversity. Kindness joins with keep intuition to make Pisceans the best sort of friends. They are friendly, Charaitable and self sacrificing, but their willingness to help others has a drawback in that they too oftenmake it an excuse for failing to exploit their own high potential; they are so busy using their energy on behalf of their family and friends that they have little left for their own affairs.
Pisces is a mutable water sign, and is ruled by the planet Neptune. Neptune inherited his lordship of the sea from the Greek God Poseidon, and he also asministered all lakes and rivers. The planet bearing his name is associated with the sign Pisces, the most watery of water signs, and is much concerned with the arts- particularly poetry and dancing. It can encourage idealism, imagination and sensitivitiy- but also carelessness, indecision and deceit.
Notable people born under this sign include Michelangelo, Glenn Close, Elizabeth Taylor and Mikhail Gorbachev.
