The Enigma of Pisces

Pisces, by artist B.A.Vierling

Stop a moment and think about the Pisces people that you know. How would you describe them in three to five words? Can you do it? I would love to see your lists!

Pisces is not an easy sign to describe instantaneously. It’s a bit of an enigma quite frankly. Why is that? I’m going to do my best to try and explain. For starters the time of the year that we say is under the influence of Pisces falls generally between February 21st and March 20th. Here in the Northern Latitudes we are experiencing the shift from winter to spring with some days becoming mild and almost balmy, while other days are wild, stormy, and freezing. Such extremes can be unsettling. Dane Rudhyar says in his book The Pulse of Life, “Pisces is an era of storms and of wholesale disintegration.” This apt description implies the dilemma of the soul incarnated into this sign. The journey of the Piscean’s life must often be one of moving through periods when everything seems to be falling apart and nothing yet has come together into a new form. The future may beckon, but the past is still unraveling.

pisces glyphThe glyph often used for Pisces is the two fish tied together but swimming in opposite directions. Here is the symbol of involution and evolution. Does the Pisces soul descend into flesh or ascend into spirit? Perhaps the Christian ethos of ‘being in the world, but not of the world’ attempts to integrate this paradox. It certainly can be both a struggle and a quest for one actually living out this dualistic path.

So think, again, about those Pisces people in your life. Aha! They’re not quite so dreamy, mild, and wishy-washy as one would stereotype them to be. Pisces is a Water Sign, and the kind of water most associated with this sign is the Ocean. Start describing the ocean and you’re getting closer to describing Pisces. Words like vast, deep, powerful, ever-changing come to mind perhaps.

Where does the cliche of Pisces being wimps come from? The elusive quality of this Mutable Sign, Pisces can certainly give that impression when issues of confrontation are at hand. Many Pisces would prefer to evade head-on collisions and leave the head butting for their Aries kinfolk. They, also, often prefer to be in the background rather than center-stage like more fiery types. But never underestimate the power of a Pisces, for like the element of Water, Pisces can gather a formidable force of watery emotional strength, when necessary, and move through, over, or under any obstacle.

I remember well an early boyfriend who certainly reflected some of the dreamier qualities of Pisces. He loved to dance in candlelight trailing long chiffon scarves after him like Nijinsky in Afternoon of the Faun. One time, however, I got a glimpse of that deeper power and strength. My roommate’s boyfriend had been drinking and was getting abusive and violent with her. Mr. Pisces calmly and quietly walked over and pinned the man’s arms behind his back and started twisting. Without fanfare he told him to leave if he knew what was good for him. End of story.

The key here is how the Pisces individual harnesses the great collective force they are born with which can, at times, overwhelm them like a tidal wave and make them feel lost and afraid. Developing their opposite polarity, Virgo, through some specific skill or technique will help to stabilize and focus their emotional body into a form that can be used in service to others. It is then that they can truly shine and feel good about themselves.

Elizabeth TaylorI think of a famous Pisces type, Elizabeth Taylor. She was hot stuff when I was young and considered one of the most beautiful actresses to light up the silver screen. She certainly did characterize the oceanic in all the variety of roles she played as an actress, the endless personal dramas she got swept away with, and the countless times she struggled with her own tidal forces of loss, suffering, and amazing rebounds. However, it was when she fully harnessed her vast emotional body into the Virgoan task of championing AIDS that she gained the balance and sense of humanitarian service that she is now acknowledged for. Good for her. She did it.

Pisces are the great chameleons of the Zodiac. They often survive through the art of camouflage. Well, doesn’t Water do that? Bodies of water take on the qualities and characteristics of their surroundings, the climate zone, etc. A fjord in Norway is one kind of water. A blue lagoon in the South Pacific is another. Both are water, but what a difference in kind and quality.

The great mythological stories, which have evolved since ancient Babylonian times, have many versions of the myth of Aphrodite and her little boy, Eros, acting out the art of evasion and shape-shifting that Pisces is known for. One version of the story tells of a ghoulish monster, Typhon, who is destroying eveything in sight. Aphrodite, in her love for her child, binds him to her with a cord and then magically turns them into fishes so that they can escape below the surface of the water to elude this demonic force wrecking havoc amongst the gods on the surface of the earth. Of course, Zeus, one of the ancient rulers of Pisces, ends up both rescuing them from their watery deep darkness, and rewarding them, which is what he loves doing best, by sweeping them up into the starry sky as the constellation of Pisces.

Initially every young Pisces learns to survive by blending and adapting to their surroundings and circumstances. As they age, however, this can become a problem for they don’t really know who they are. A number of years ago Patty Hearst, the heiress, was captured by the SLA and later emerged in a photograph while robbing a bank. She’s the perfect example of how Pisces survive as chameleons. First she’s this pampered girl from the newspaper dynasty family, next she’s playing Bonnie and Clyde in full regalia with her abductors, and finally—yep—she marries her bodyguard and settles into yet another role.

Remember, Pisces is the very last sign and thus all of the other signs are contained within it. No wonder it gets confusing being a Pisces! So how does a Pisces ever figure out who they really are? I always encourage my Pisces clients to spend time either alone or out in nature. Either way they will gradually separate out subject from object and gain a deeper sense of themselves in the process. The practices of contemplation can help Pisces: stilling the mind, being quiet, listening to the small inner voice. These are ways to come to know themselves better. Once they connect with their core, they can then turn outwards again and help a lot of people.

Serve or suffer is yet another famous cliche for Pisces. I remember a dear happy Leo woman saying once, “Oh you Pisces just lo-o-ove to suffer!” Certainly there was a ring of truth to what she said. Yet suffering is common to us all. It seems to be part of life here on planet Earth. What Pisces do best is to address that suffering and serve those who do. I know so many Pisces involved in the Healing Arts. One woman is a fine Acupuncturist with the most up-lifting sunny attitude. She has a lot of Aries fire in her nature to bring inspiration and spunk to her bedside manner. I know another Pisces who is a Homeopath. He has the patience and technical knowledge to listen quietly and assess accurately the right remedy from the thousands possible. He has more Aquarian planets to meld with his Pisces Sun. I know another amazing healer who works with sound. Her business card says “a harmonic approach to well-being”, Acutonics’ Sound Therapy.

Nirvana NevermindA lot of Pisces are drawn to music and the performing arts. Here all the Dionysian qualities can often be expressed where mystical ecstasy and madness can be unleashed through sound, lights, and multi-media effects. Jon Bon Jovi and Kurt Cobain of Nirvana (what a Piscean name!) come to mind in the music world. In the world of dance both Nijinsky and Rudolph Nureyev expressed the fluidity and power of this sign. There are so many very fine actors and actresses who are Pisces: Glen Close, Holly Hunter, Bruce Willis, Billy Crystal, Glenda Jackson, Joanne Woodward, Drew Barrymore, Juliette Binoche, Queen Latifah, etc.

Michelangelo was a Pisces, but if you want to see a wonderful contemporary artist who totally conveys the nature of mysticism through his magical works, visit the site of Ernest Caballero. Ernest is a Pisces through and through. He epitomizes the Pisces who has found a Virgoan container, his sculptures, for his visionary connection with the unseen realms.

Cinderella, by artist Warwick GobleThere are many myths and stories connected with this sign, but I have especially always liked the fairytale Cinderella. It’s such a classic Piscean tale. The humble Cinderella serving day and night the harsh and greedy stepmother and her daughters. The enchanted visitation by her fairy godmother from the astral realm. The handsome, utterly romantic Prince of her dreams. The dancing until the stroke of midnight when the enchantment ends. The dropped glass slipper. The search for the right and true foot.

Shoes, feet, slippers are all under Pisces’ ruler ship. Last, but not least, the feet. They support the rest of us. They are under us. Pisces must learn to Understand. And, of course, this fairy tale ends with the happy ever after redemption theme that is such a part of the mythos of Pisces. Take a look at Ernest Caballero’s Risen Christ. There is the perfect image of Ascension and Redemption that Pisces yearns for even as the inevitable descent is taking place. There is a longing for absolute oneness and bliss in this enigmatic of all signs, Pisces.

I would like to close by bringing your attention to possibly the highest aspiration of Pisces, Kuan Yin. She is the female Goddess of Compassion known far and wide in the East as “The One Who Hears the Cries of the World.” The Lotus Sutra translated by Kumarajiva, possibly a Pakistani prisoner sold into slavery in China, somewhere between A.D. 397 and 415 introduced her and from there she evolved into the accepted role of the divine feminine by the 9th Century AD.

Kuan Yin epitomizes the qualities of Pisces, a Yin sign, as its best. Her compassion knows no boundaries and extends universal love to all, including animals and plants. Her appeal is that she extends her compassion and love to ordinary people. There are so many myths and stories abounding that tell of her great deeds of grace, but none are more fitting to our theme than her connection with the sea.

Tales are often told of her ability to calm the turbulence of typhoons as she descends from the heavens in her flowing white robes. Here is a quote described in one such tale from a beautifully written book about her, Kuan Yin, Myths and Prophiscies of the Chinese Goddess of Compassion by Martin Palmer and Jay Ramsay with Man-Ho Kwok, “… Closing her eyes, she raised her hands before the raging waters, which immediately ceased their turbulence. Turning to face the winds, she opened her eyes and the winds died down and the storm clouds dispersed” Then she disappeared.

Kuan YinPeace, Love, and Compassion: these are the highest qualities that Pisces aspires towards. To get to such a lofty goal they must often wallow through a lot of mud and storms along the way. That is why Kuan Yin is often depicted standing upon a full blown lotus flower. Perhaps there are really no words now to further attempt to define what can only be contemplated. I leave you, dear readers, with that beautiful image. Who or what is Pisces must perhaps ever remain a mystery, an enigma.

A beautiful piece of writing! I am sceptical to the newspapers and some of the rubbish you read on the web. Also cant believe how stereotyped this sign is. You have truly seen the inner beauty, complexity and individuality of this sign though! Being a piscean i appriciate that you have put in words what i could not! :)x

2 Genevieve { 03.06.08 at 6:37 pm }

Well, bless your heart, Jody! It’s nice when a Piscean speaks out. I appreciate your confirmation.

3 Barbara Dakin { 03.07.08 at 2:45 pm }

Hi solar twin! Happy Birthday Were you remembering this happy acupuncturist in this wonderful portrayal of Piscean diversity? It put a large smile on my face all day just to think so. Hope you and yours are well and thriving. Love, B

4 Genevieve { 03.07.08 at 9:20 pm }

Yes, Barbara, you’re the one. And you’re the best! If you want folks to find you in the golden hills of the Sierras, please give us a link or phone number. You have the true ‘touch of a healer’.

5 Katie { 03.19.08 at 6:02 pm }

Thanks Genevieve, this helps a bit with my feeling like I’m in a storm on the seas of life with my new love. Now I need to understand Virgo to point him in that direction.

6 Michael { 03.20.08 at 8:27 am }

Great article. It evades the other side of Pisces, but I guess that’s very, well–Piscean.

7 Genevieve { 03.24.08 at 11:53 pm }


I WILL eventually get to Virgo. Patience. :)

8 cassandra { 08.23.08 at 8:51 pm }

Thankyou for this piece. I am a pisces and am still trying to understand myself. every piece of writing like this brings me a little more knowledge.

9 Genevieve { 08.24.08 at 1:22 pm }

You’re welcome, Cassandra. Your feed-back gives me reason to keep writing!

10 Mandy Droste { 01.01.09 at 7:11 pm }

My oh my.
What a significant impact this writing has had on me. Thank you so much for introducing me to Kuan Yin. I too hear the cries of the world. Growing up i used to honestly think that for some reason i felt all the pain that anyone in the world felt. Then i realized I’m just an extremely compassionate person. Also, thank you for helping me realize another reason to why i have so much frustration and confusion in my life. I honestly cherish this writing, thank you. :]

11 ashley { 01.15.09 at 11:57 pm }

god bless && much love*

12 sitara monnappa { 01.27.09 at 11:12 am }

you must be a person who can see very deep into people. because pisceans are taken to be very dreamy n shy n quiet basically useless people;) but you have got a very special n great gift i must we slowlygrow up,we(pisceans) slowly get self- confidence n a sense of contentment with what god has blessed this sign with. i say this as a piscean,who’s just very recently started accepting herself n slowly realizing an identity i did not know i had.i’m not wallowing in self-pity or anything but it was pretty hard for me to accept myself the way i am n get peace of mind. all i can give in gratitude is 2 words;’THANK YOU’,for trying to go beyond the stereotype.

13 Genevieve { 01.28.09 at 8:11 pm }


I feel blessed just to get your feed-back. Yes, I try to go beyond the cliches. I hope you will have a wonderful year as your birthday approaches. You’re accepting who you are and next will come sharing your enormous gifts.

14 Anju { 02.25.09 at 7:54 am }

This is the first article i read which portrays my sign as what it really is…rest all are so keen on portraying the Pisces as too compassionate and cry-baby type sign, which is definitely not true as far as I’m concerned. I greatly appreciate the author.

15 Siegfried Westermann { 07.24.09 at 1:30 am }

I am reading your words and liking them and thinking them to describe me as I am. It is true that some days I wake up feeling not so much like I did the day before, as if I am changed and different. Thank you for telling me this is normal for me as I was born on 17th of March 1951.

Peace and love


16 Genevieve { 07.24.09 at 2:08 pm }

Good! Self-acceptance is so important, and flowing with yourself and life is perfect for a Pisces.

17 Roger Ramsaur { 08.09.09 at 1:40 pm }

Genevieve thank you for this little bit of writing… made a world of difference to me today…..

18 Natasha { 08.15.09 at 11:08 am }

I absolutely cannot wait until Scorpio is up! I am so anxious! :]

19 Genevieve { 08.15.09 at 11:25 am }

Well, Natasha, November isn’t that far off!

20 Sue Meister { 11.19.09 at 9:58 am }

Thank you so much for the indepth insight you have shared so beautifully about those of us who are Pisces. I have always known that what is inside me is often hard to express & even harder for most others to understand. Your descriptions through out this writing are spot on & verbalize what I know, & what I am, or what I am becoming, but I could never have said it so well. Thanks also for the introduction of Kuan Yin, I must read more about her.
Blessings & much thanks,

21 Marcie { 01.26.10 at 11:36 pm }

Great writing and damn accurate. Where’s Aquarius though? I was born Feb. 20….I look forward to reading it. Thanks for the wonderful work!

22 Genevieve { 01.29.10 at 12:27 pm }

Ask, and you will receive! Voila. I’ve just published my Aquarian article Part I. I appreciate your support.

23 mkayy { 07.30.10 at 11:27 am }

thank you :(

24 Anonymous { 08.06.10 at 6:00 pm }

interesting stuff

25 Orlando { 10.14.10 at 9:00 am }

My house (sagittarius) has been in Pisces for the last 4 months now, and I have definately seen a difference in the perception of life that has been placed before me. It is equivalent to living a dream in real time. It’s beautiful if I may say so, yet it does have it’s woes, such as uncontrollable body functions while asleep and sudden bouts of pure sadness. I have a couple of pisces associates that I have made contact with or hang with, and yes, they are definately not what i had pictured them to be before I met one. In two words, I would best describe them as being- SO ICEY!

26 Bill { 11.13.10 at 7:29 pm }

What a wonderful article. This is the most accurate description I have ever read about my sign. It’s commonplace to make us sound weak and ineffectual, and few seem to understand that we do literally have the “strength of the ocean” within us, and will channel that strength when we need it. But like the ocean, we can remain calm and seemingly placed otherwise.

Thank you so much for this analysis, you truly are gifted.

27 Lily { 11.13.10 at 8:08 pm }

This is a lovely piece. One thing that I struggle with as Pisces is that people always feel confident to try to get over on me. I am not a push over, but take the time to observe people. Once I see where you are coming from, you will not get away with crap twice. It is very sad to see how people do not have a conscious and wil TRY YOU as though you are an idiot. I am not one to play with when I deal with matters, but it is overwhelming what people try. I usually let people get away with an injustice the first time because I will be baffled or in shock while it is happening. This causes me to get PISSED at myself afterwards for not saying anything. But I will deal with them properly the next time. It is very sad the way people are and they usually fear Pisces becuase of our quiet – yet powerful inner strength and BEAUTY. I always wind up dealing with catty, petty, jealous female issues. Oh well, I am ME and the rest of the world better move over or make space. The best part of your article was the analogy of the ocean. That is Pisces to a tee and still water run deep. The ocean is a force to ne reckoned with …..imagine …a cruise ship is a small pea compared to that vast ocean full of untapped mysteries and unforseen powers with the abilty to swallow you whole. LOOK OUT!

28 Lily { 11.13.10 at 8:10 pm }

sorry for some of my typos above – I was typing fast and forgot to proofread.

29 Genevieve { 11.14.10 at 11:49 am }

Thanks to both Bill and Lily for your comments, especially regarding the oceanic qualities that abide in every Pisces. Yes, the power of MAAT is part of that dynamic which can be like a tsunami when the Pisces’ inner strength emotionally is engaged full-on, be it wrath or beatific love. The exploration of the oceanic depths is telling us a lot now about the deeper meanings of this sign.

30 marcus { 01.03.11 at 6:41 am }

Well, as a Pisces, i get an impression that most people assume we are push overs all lovely and mushy. They tend to take advantage of our good natures and treat us like stepping stones to gain their goals. However, i would like to differ from that. We all have a dark side to us and as a Pisces, we have the advantage of knowing all the weakness and strengths of all the signs. Most sites label us as weak and addiction prone or unrealistic dreamers. It is time to change that.

Pisceans have a terrifying dark side in that we can manipulate the deepest psychic realms of the other signs and yet we draw suspicions away from after any deed. It is like we can puppet anyone if we put our skills to it. It is a matter of whether we want to or not

We just have to harden our hearts at times and maintain an inner core of strength and identity, while we weave illusions to confuse the enemy. Pisceans have an instant alluring halo effect upon us and the darkest creatures know how to use it. Instead of a double fish, we can be a double shark sign ruling the seas or even a double siren sign where we can sway the masses and draw them to the rocks like doom bound ships .

As we already have a lot of energies within our souls, we should release them to prevent imploding. We do not retort with fiery words but we can drown the disrespectful. The dark Pisces can even instigate someone else to commit the crime without staining his/her hands.

31 Genevieve { 01.03.11 at 9:51 am }

Very astute observations of the shadow side of this sign. The Pisces’ ability to be a chameleon is one of it’s defense mechanisms all right. Nothing is stronger than water because it can go over, under, and through any obstacle; this is true. So the responsibility of Pisces is very great to renounce the temptations of ego for power and control over someone. Pisces is able to align with its deeper and more universal sources of wisdom and compassion because it does know all the ‘weakness and strength of all the signs’. This great power to heal the fragmentations created by desires turned addictive is truly awesome when seen in the more evolved Piscean soul.

32 Rishi { 01.29.11 at 8:28 am }

Pisces is the most mutable, changeable, adaptable, dynamic and scattered sign of the Zodiac (the Indian Zodiac/Western Zodiac, that is). I also believe that Pisces is the most diverse sign of the Zodiac in the sense that we Pisceans can pass ourselves as ANY other sign of the Zodiac with relative ease. We can be schizophrenic and/or have multiple personalities, just like that OTHER Zodiac sign that’s represented by two of something instead of just one (Gemini, of course). But these traits are even more prominent with Pisceans than with Geminians because water is the most mutable element and that which water represents (i.e. emotion) is, therefore, correspondingly more mutable than that which air represents (i.e. intellect). In fact, out of emotion (represented by water), intellect (represented by air), sensation (represented by earth) and will (represented by fire), emotion is the most mutable. Pisces is the last of the water signs, the last of the mutable signs, the last of the universal signs and, of course, the last of the 12 signs in general. So is it any wonder that we are utterly, utterly unfathomable? Our depth cannot be penetrated. Our depth is infinite. Pisces has long been symbolised by a pair of intertwined fishes, but what TYPE of fishes? There are not many types of bulls and lions (for example), at least in comparison to fishes. There are almost 28,000 known extant fish species, although that number may grow to exceed 32,500. HUNDREDS of new fish species are discovered EVERY year. There are many trillions and trillions of fishes on Earth. In fact, only insects are more numerous than fishes (and insects are ALSO represented by another water sign – Scorpio). So I think the sheer number of fishes on Earth symbolises the diversity of qualities, appearances, shapes and sizes found among Pisceans.
Some of us are predominantly simple and freedom-loving like goldfishes, some of us are predominantly patient like guppies, some of us are predominantly mesmerising, sophisticated and youthful like angelfishes, some of us are predominantly friendly like clownfishes, some of us are predominantly energetic, complex and independent like electric eels, some of us are predominantly fierce, domineering and powerful like sharks, some of us are predominantly child-like, playful and innocent like dolphins, some of us are predominantly gentle, charismatic and majestic like whales, some of us are predominantly primitive and old like coelecanths, some of us are predominantly enigmatic, otherworldly and unworldly like koi carps etc. We can also change from one type of fish to another. We can go from ancient to modern to futuristic and vice-versa and everything in-between in general. We cannot be pigeonholed.

33 Rishi { 01.29.11 at 8:38 am }

I believe that Jesus Christ was a Piscean in terms of his Western zodiac sign and an Earth Dragon in terms of his Chinese zodiac sign. I am also a Piscean Earth Dragon. First of all, it’s widely recognised that the 25th of December isn’t necessarily when Jesus was born – it’s merely when His birthday is celebrated. The 25th of December was chosen as the day of celebrating the birth of Jesus because it corresponds with the winter solstice. However, many scholars believe that Jesus was ACTUALLY born sometime in March (the Sun is in Pisces for most of March). This would make sense, as Jesus is considered to be the avatar who ushered in the Age Of Pisces. Throughout His life, He demonstrated unconditional love, forgiveness, peace, grace, tolerance and acceptance. These traits are commonly associated with Pisces. Also, for the first 300 years of the Christian era, the symbol of Christianity was not a cross but a fish (which symbolises Pisces). Jesus Christ Himself states in the Bible that the sign that represents Him is ‘the sign of Jonah’. That sign is the whale and the whale represents Pisces. Also, ‘Ichthus’ means ‘fish’ in Greek and can also be read as an acrostic (which is a word formed from the first letters of several words). Therefore, ‘Ichthus’, when read in this particular way, means ‘Jesus Christ, God’s son, saviour’. Also, as already mentioned, the birthday of Jesus is celebrated on the 25th of December and 2 + 5 = 7. The number 7 is generally associated with Pisces. Baptism in water and fisher-men disciples are also references to Pisces. Furthermore, Jesus Himself was known as ‘the fisher of men’. There is also the story of how Jesus and His 12 disciples fed thousands of hungry people with only two fish and five loaves. The two fish represent the two fish of the zodiac sign Pisces and also represent the Sun and the Moon as well as Sunday and Monday respectively. The five loaves represent the five visible planets (Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn) as well as Tuesday (corresponding to Mars), Wednesday (corresponding to Mercury), Thursday (corresponding to Jupiter), Friday (corresponding to Venus) and Saturday (corresponding to Saturn). The 12 disciples of Jesus fed the hungry people with 12 baskets of left-overs being collected. The 12 disciples and the 12 baskets of left-overs represent the 12 signs of the zodiac and also Pisces, which is the 12th and final sign of the zodiac. Pisces is 12 signs rolled into one, because, first of all, Pisces is ALL of the previous 11 signs rolled into one plus its own sign as well. So Pisces is all 12 signs rolled into one and, in my opinion, was the Sun sign of Jesus Christ when He lived on this planet.

As far as Jesus being a Dragon is concerned, many scholars don’t believe that Jesus was actually born in the year 0. Instead, many of these scholars instead claim that Jesus was born in the year 4 B.C. The year 4 B.C. is a Dragon year (an Earth Dragon year, to be precise!). Also, like with Pisces, the Dragon sign is 12 signs rolled into one, because, first of all, the Dragon sign is ALL of the other 11 signs rolled into one plus its own sign as well. It is also ironic that Satan is referred to in the Bible as a ‘Dragon’. So perhaps Jesus represents the Good Dragon and Satan represents the Bad Dragon? Even Paula Delsol states in her book ‘Chinese Horoscopes’ that Jesus might have been a Dragon as far as His Chinese zodiac sign is concerned! It’s also ironic that Charles Darwin is a Dragon as far as His Chinese zodiac sign is concerned and a symbol of a fish is used to represent not only creationism (and Christianity in general) but also evolution as well.
Furthermore, the next Dragon year is 2012 and some people believe that by the end of 2012, the Piscean Age will be complete and the Aquarian Age will begin.

Here are more reasons why I believe that Jesus Christ was an Earth Dragon just like me:

* The five elements of Chinese astrology and Chinese philosophy in general are Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water. Each of these five elements correspond to a certain type of creature. Wood corresponds to scaly creatures, Fire corresponds to feathered creatures, Metal corresponds to furry creatures, Water corresponds to shell-covered creatures and Earth corresponds to human beings. Jesus Christ is widely considered to be simultaneously completely a human being and completely God. Jesus Christ is also widely considered to be a perfect human being.

* Earth is the ONLY element out of the five elements to contain a PERFECT and COMPLETE balance of both Yin and Yang. This corresponds to how Jesus is the second member of the Trinity, in-between God as the Father (the cosmic masculine principle) and God as the Holy Ghost (the cosmic feminine principle). Jesus is the union between the Father and the Holy Ghost, the midpoint between the cosmic masculine principle and the cosmic feminine principle. Similarly, Earth is the third element out of the five elements and lies in-between the Wood element and Fire element to its left and the Metal element and Water element to its right.

* The positive emotion of the Earth element is love and the message of Jesus Christ is love.

* Earth corresponds to the time of harvest. Jesus Christ said: “The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few. Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that He will send forth labourers into His harvest.”

* A lamb is a young sheep. Jesus Christ is known as the ‘Lamb of God’. The Sheep is one of the four creatures of the Chinese zodiac that has Earth as its fixed element (the other three are the Ox, the Dog and the Dragon – ALL of which have been HISTORICALLY associated with Jesus Christ).

* The Earth element is associated with the relationship that a mother has toward her child. This corresponds to the relationship between the Holy Ghost (Virgin Mary) and the Son (Jesus Christ).

Many people are accustomed to thinking of Pisces as the final sign of the zodiac (which it is), however, Pisces is also the sign before the first sign. When looking at Pisces from this perspective, it becomes clear that Pisces represents not only the most elderly stages in life (including death) but also the conception, embryonic and fetal stages of life as well (since Aries represents birth and the infancy stage of life). When we get older, we become more and more helpless like babies because that is what most of us will become again in the future. Birth is the opposite of death, not life – because life is eternal. Death is followed by reincarnation. From the womb to the tomb and back to the womb. Pisces is the womb. Pisces is the tomb.

35 Rishi { 01.29.11 at 9:12 am }

I’ve always felt something about the water signs and it’s about their natures. For example, it has always seemed to me that Scorpio is the most ‘fiery’ water sign and, indeed, the most ‘fiery’ non-fire sign in general. With Cancer, it has always seemed to me that Cancer is the most ‘earthy’ water sign and, indeed, the most ‘earthy’ non-earth sign in general. And finally, with Pisces, it has always seemed to me that Pisces is the most ‘airy’ water sign and, indeed, the most ‘airy’ non-air sign in general. Well, these thoughts of mine turned out to apparently be quite accurate because I remember reading in an astrology book (I forgot the name of it, sorry) that the natures of the water signs are reflected by the three different states of water that they symbolise. Cancer symbolises water in its liquid state, Scorpio symbolises water in its solid state and Pisces symbolises water in its gaseous state. Water in its liquid state is, of course, rivers, lakes, oceans etc. Liquid water seems to be the only state of water which can bond with earth and when liquid water bonds with earth, mud is formed (of course). Water in its solid state is, of course, ice, snow, hail etc. Solid water seems to be the only state of water which can burn, because ice can burn (just like fire). Water in its gaseous state is, of course, fog, mist, vapour, smoke, clouds etc. Gaseous water seems to be the only state of water which dwells in the air. And there you have it.

Zowie Rishi!!!

You’ve contributed an enormous amount of material for other Pisceans to read and digest. Thanks for being so passionate and engaged.

37 Rishi { 01.30.11 at 12:27 am }

Yo, you’re welcome Ms G! I have a LOT more material for my fellow Pisceans and my fellow Dragons to digest!!!!!!!!! ^_____^

38 Mari Aaronsouth { 03.03.11 at 7:16 pm }

As always, you eloquently synthesize the influences of the planets and their interactions. Thank you for illuminating the processes of the year.
Rescue remedy in hand, I go forward!

39 Curt { 06.06.11 at 5:17 am }

Genevieve, Thank you.

Other than that, I’ve been up all night trying to express exactly what I liked and trying to figure out how to build upon what you’ve written. We understand matter and spirit and all the signs of the zodiac. I hear we are good artists and writers. Why then is it so difficult for us to express what it is to pisces? I’m afraid I’ve failed, but one thing I’ve come to learn over the past few years is not to be ashamed of failure. In many ways, the greatest failure a pisces can have is never to have tried.

I have found that, although I often don’t know what I’m doing, as long as I do it, it gets done. In fact, usually what I’ve done is received rather well. Is everyone confused yet? Anyway, this is one of the facts that got me thinking that Pisces is the sign of finishing. I know we’re not very good at starting, but when we can finish, don’t we just finish with the best of them?

I often wonder why people see us as being mysterious. I think people see we are a water sign and they see how Cancer and Scorpio often hide in their shells. Then they get confused when we fish, although not obviously outgoing, are so quick to offer up everything of ourselves to those who bother to get close to us. I think they assume there must be some sort of trickery afoot, but honestly, I just want to be understood (and loved).

Lastly and most certainly, I’d like to point my fellow pisceans to the story of King Canute on the seashore. I think it speaks volumes about, what seems to me, like pisces personality.

40 Genevieve { 06.06.11 at 11:47 am }

Thank you, Curt, for your insights and truly helpful observations. As a ‘sister-Pisces’ I try to live my life so I won’t have any regrets when I leave, especially in my relationships with other people. That seems to fit also with what you say about finishing things. I’m not familiar with King Canute. Can you enlighten me?

41 Curt { 06.06.11 at 5:01 pm }

King Canute was the ruler of Denmark, England, Norway and Sweden. He lived from about 985 until 1035. I can’t find his birth date, so I’m not certain he actually was a pisces, but in the story I see some very Piscean traits.

The story goes like this:

Like all powerful men king Canute was surrounded by people who would constantly sing his praises and tell him how great he was. They said he was the greatest man ever to walk the face of the earth. They said he was the lord of all land and sea. Nothing was beyond the great King Canute. One day King Canute grew tired of all their adoration. As he walked along the beach, he saw that the tide was coming in and called for his servants to bring his chair to the shore.
After they did so, Canute said to his advisors “Do you think that the water will dare wet my feet?”
“Surely not,” his advisors answered. “For even the water must fear your power!”
The king nodded and turned to the water. “Water! I command you not to wet my feet!” He then sat in his chair.
Before long a small wave lapped at the king’s foot. The king grew outraged and thrashed about wildly. His servants feared their king was going insane. “Water! I demand that you never again wet my feet!” he then sat in his chair. Soon, another small wave came and wet the king’s feet. This continued throughout the day until not only the king’s feet were under water, but his robe was wet as well. Despite the king’s commands, the tide rose as it has always done.

Finally the king rose and turned to his advisors, who now thought he was insane. With a sigh he said “It seems, my friends, that I am not so powerful as you would have me think. Perhaps now you will remember that there is only one king who is all-powerful, and it is he who rules the land and sea.”

As a pisces, I like to look at the story from multiple perspectives. The sea shows the reserved strength of the Pisces quit well, I think. It doesn’t grow angry at the king and shows neither malice nor jealousy. Like Pisces at it’s finest, the sea rises because that is what the sea does. (I sometimes laugh that pisces is “mutable”, knowing that we are also always the same.) Also like the spiritual Pisces, the sea is following the will of a greater power.

For Canute’s part, I like how he doesn’t just come out and tell his servants they are wrong or try to correct them, but instead he shows them it would be good for them to correct themselves. He shows diplomacy and creativity, even though he is king and certainly has the authority to take a more direct approach. Also, who but a pisces would ask for less praise? and again there is Canute’s spiritual belief that there is a force greater than even the greatest man on earth.

42 Genevieve { 06.06.11 at 8:23 pm }

Wow! That’s such a beautiful story illustrating so many truths about Pisces. Thank you, Curt, for sharing it.

43 Aspiringtobesomeone { 06.15.11 at 1:14 pm }

I think you did well speaking of Pisces, Genevieve. The comments and ensuing discussion got me thinking why we can’t define ourselves… and this is my theory:

I think the reason why Pisces have always remained so undefinable is because a lot of Pisces see differences in all the people around them. So obviously there’s differences in other Pisces, I know I don’t like to generalize. Why would we generalize all of the great qualities we see in us and others, knowing that we’d leave some out?

I don’t like being defined, and I dislike being ill-defined even worse, I wouldn’t want to do it to someone else. Being defined tends to give us pictures of our potential, ability, and limitations. But as I know, there is no limit to what one can do, and what can be. So maybe it’s a dislike of limitations and boundaries that make it near impossible for a Pisces to define a group of Pisces. After all, water can get anywhere.

Have a wonderful life, lots of love and luck

44 Genevieve { 06.16.11 at 8:55 am }

I just love how you have ‘defined’ the undefinable qualities of Pisces. That you! This sign has gotten more comments than any other on my blog and I, too, am a Pisces.

45 Rishi { 07.20.11 at 10:46 am }

Genevieve, you might be a Piscean like me but are you a Dragon like me?

46 Lizzie { 07.30.11 at 5:43 am }

I was amused by the discussion guys! Well, I’m also a pisces and I’m at the stage of my life where I still don’t know who I am. When I was younger, I kept on imitating qualities of people I admired the most and now, I don’t know who I am, I don’t even know my own capabilities, so much that it surprises me in certain situations. But even when I’m imitating their traits, I never lose my intuition, and I love how it reminds me of things I should do or not do. Anyway, how did any of you came to know your own self identity? Cause I’ve noticed that current deep inside which point out to two different directions and I just can’t decide which to follow. Your answers would help me a lot.

47 Rishi { 08.01.11 at 6:41 am }

Lizzie, don’t follow any direction. Become directionless. And make me a cup of coffee.

48 Genevieve Vierling { 08.01.11 at 10:13 am }

Ah, yes, humor will continue to float our boats. The ocean truly is vast and I have learned to ‘go with the flow’, Lizzie. Also, to Rishi: I am sadly not a dragon, but I dream of them constantly.

49 Rishi { 08.02.11 at 3:43 am }

Why do you dream of dragons constantly?

50 Rishi { 08.02.11 at 3:49 am }

This is a poem I’ve made called ‘Return Of The Dragon':

I descend from Pure Energy
To set all realms of matter free
If evil will dominate
Then goodness I must create
Fly with me
Worlds we’ll see
You should never have any regrets
Because on me, you should place your bets
Across universes I soar
I have returned to you once more

51 Curt { 08.18.11 at 1:11 am }

Lizzie, for me it took 10 years of lonely nights and a prayer. I hope that no one has to take as long on their voyage to self-discovery as I did, or at least that they might get far more accomplished on the way. (I got practically nothing accomplished in all that time). The only good things I can say about my personal story of development are that it’s my own and it’s in the past.. mostly. Oh.. and one more thing. It’s helped me to understand the dark places where people sometimes find themselves, which I think is the true strength of pisces.

One night I looked around and I saw that I was in the same place I was ten years before, doing the same thing. I was always happy.. or at least not sad (and maybe I just thought I wasn’t sad. I was comfortable). Still, everything around me had gotten older and was slowly decaying. It struck me that as happy as I was, everything was doomed to fall apart and I would be unable to save myself, let alone anyone else. That’s when I prayed desperately. I don’t want to reveal the details of the prayer, But after blaming the Lord all night, I realized that in spite of all the pain, and anguish, and rage, there was never once a moment where I questioned the existence of a power greater than myself. I asked for one last chance at bliss, then promised my life if that chance were given to me. (at this point, I had very literally set two paths ahead of myself.) Several months later, I was walking home from my job, which I loved but couldn’t support myself with, and I realized that I still hadn’t made any progress in life. I looked up and asked “why?”. Then it occurred to me that I had gotten the chance I had asked for, but I ignored possible bliss in favor of my addiction to playing games (literally all day every day for ten years). Anyway, I sat down and seriously thought about my promise to dedicate my life to the Lord. I wondered what a lowly being like myself could ever possibly hope to contribute to the infinite power that runs this universe. Surely there isn’t much. Whatever could an infinite being want from me? There was nothing I could think of. Then another opportunity opened itself up to me, of the same nature I had prayed for earlier. Then I felt understanding like I never had before. I realized that I was never meant to choose one path or the other. I was supposed to strive for both a complete dedication to earthly hopes AND a complete dedication to spiritual hopes.

Every step we take along one path can equip us better to follow the other. If we lose track on one path or get to a point where we simply can’t go along that path at the moment, then it’s good for us to have something else to focus on. We never get very far along either path if we don’t decide to move, but by moving along either path we can better prepare ourselves for both. Should we be happy if we are physically perfect but spiritually decayed?, or would it be better to be spiritually perfect and physically corrupt? The pisces should answer “no” to a question such as that, because in our heart we realize that it is wrong to sacrifice either Physicality or Spirituality. When you see two paths set out before you, the answer is as likely to be “both” or “neither” as it is to be “one” or “the other”.

52 Shana Sorman { 12.21.11 at 1:32 am }

Perfectly indited content , appreciate it for information .

53 Brianna { 01.18.12 at 3:35 pm }

I have gotten to to astronomy, so I’ve been looking up signs lately. Pisces is my sign, and a lot of the sites out there are just scams. Im so glad for this, While reading it I realized how much it was like me. I kept going “Oh wow, that’s kind of what I do..” or something along those lines. My mother also gave me “the book of birthdays” which is about astronomy too, and It has information rather similar to this. So thank you for describing this sign!

54 Genevieve { 01.18.12 at 5:20 pm }

Thanks for your feedback Brianna. Yes, Pisces isn’t the easiest of signs to fully grasp.

69 Keisha Perkins { 07.20.12 at 2:43 pm }

When I was young initially I learned to survive easily by blending and adapting to my surroundings and circumstances.
I literally started crying my heart out when I read this- the older I get the more lost I am, My mother gave me away when I was three months old and rejected me my whole life, I have made my life as a chameleon and it has gotten me through the roughest days – however this has become a problem as I age due to I really still don’t know who the hell I am ……….. That’s not cool and not right and as I think I found my answers to make my heart settle, they were never really answered just illusions to satisfy the hunger question and be able to hurry to another subject, therefore I have always given my heart and help and time to anyone who needed that person to believe in them one last time for that is what I’ve always needed- I still believe in hope and love but I am held together with tape now so I am not as strong as I once was

70 Curt { 07.26.12 at 1:53 am }

Hey Keisha, I just felt like I should say, I can feel where you’re coming from.
I feel like the route of your “problem” is that you’re still wearing a mask as you examine yourself. Pisces is a knowledgable sign, but we’re not really a sign of knowing.. we’re a sign of feeling. You say that it’s wrong for a person to not know who they are. Why?
Other signs don’t have the relationship with infinity that pisces has, so other signs may not be so conscious of the fact that there is something beyond.. but we are pisces.. we feel that there is the unknowable and that our selves are at least partially unknowable. In essence, to know yourself would not be cool and would not be right.. it would be to limit yourself before you have fully explored your limits.
You say that you believe in hope and love but are held together by tape and not as strong as you once were. I love the imagery, but I would point out that hope and love are things that have existed since the dawn of time. They are eternal. Like the ocean they may ebb and flow, but they will always be here. Hope and love are part of you, or at least within you. your taped facade couldn’t contain them.. that’s how you know that the taped facade is just another mask. It is making you think that your spirit can be contained and that makes you feel weak, but when you realize that you can’t be contained and therefor can’t be reliant on that taped facade, I think you may realize that you’re not just strong.. you’re eternal.
Don’t think that means that life will be easy though. We have an infinite amount of work ahead of us as well. There is so much pain and suffering in the world. People may not always know it, but they need us. That’s why we have to keep going and keep looking past the next horizon. Because we feel the eternal.. the hope and love.. but others get caught up on the knowable and the finite.. we have to let them know that the truth is out there.

71 DeMario Scimio { 08.10.12 at 9:14 am }

To answer your first question: the Pisces people I know are highly intuitive, non-confrontational when attacked directly, and expressive of their emotions.

Amazing blog, by the way.

72 Genevieve { 08.10.12 at 9:36 am }

Very succinct and right on, DeMario! I can relate myself.

73 Chrissy { 08.22.12 at 3:33 pm }

Wo-o-ow… This is Really amazing. I’ve never read a post quite like it, or seen such a lively discussion. You have a gift, my dear. Incidentally, I’m a left handed Pisces. I’m a writer, too, and this post makes me want to write one just as long about the same subject. You have given me much food for thought, and many hours of contemplation. I have also learned a thing or two about myself, and that there are other people in the world like me, which is always a help. For a writer’s contribution, this is very disorganized. Apologies for that. I’m just writing my thoughts as they come to me. I feel like I want to say a thousand things, but I don’t know what to say. Thanks, I suppose, and your post leaves me wanting to connect with a community of Piceans. Lots of fish swim in schools. I wonder where ours is. And why do they call it a school? Which fish is the teacher? LOL Sorry. I dearly hope this discussion continues. I feel strangely exultant at finding it. I do enjoy my depths, but they can be lonely. Sometimes one yearns for people who can dive as deep as you, and be as effortless in their understanding of the infinite. I may comment again when I have a better idea of what I’m supposed to say. I still don’t feel as though I’ve said what I was meant to. Here’s hoping the next time will be better. Meantime, thanks to everyone who posted here, and here’s to all the Pisces of the world. Up school! Up school! Right up school! LOL

74 Genevieve { 08.22.12 at 3:43 pm }

Thanks for sharing Chrissy,
I think this article generates more comments than almost any other I’ve written. I welcome the diversity of people comprising our sign. It is a relief to know how many are out there who resonate!

Hello , Genevieve

I totally loved your article about pisces , I am myself piscean earth dragon with moon in scorpio , could you please write an article about this combination ? I would be really grateful for that !

78 Genevieve { 10.11.12 at 2:07 pm }

Thank you Nino,
I’m working on an involved series right now on Relationships. When that is done perhaps I’ll start one on Sun/Moon combinations. Good idea! I’m not a Chinese astrologer, though I have elementary knowledge in that sphere. I encourage readers to share what they know!

79 Suzanne { 11.12.12 at 10:29 pm }

I have learned so much from you and all the insight of the pisces comments. I am a pisces-water dragon/ and I have my North Node in Pisces. I feel like it is a never ending process of being and becoming even more of the unconditional love and compassion that I know is the reason that I am here. Finding my work of service brought clarity where there once was confusion and depression. There have been a number of dark nights of the Soul but I rise up and transform. Letting go of control and structure, living each present moment and letting life live through me is how I have found the most joy. At 60 I have just changed my whole life once again and I know it is opening me up to more love and conscious awareness. Thank you for helping me to understand even more about myself.

I thank God for all of you! Blessings.

Hello, Brethren. First off, awesome article, Genevieve. Thank you. Secondly, I am also a Left-Handed, Piscean Earth Dragon, being born 1 day before commentor Arkyl. Thanks to him for inspiring me to comment. I very recently decided to seek answers for myself online and this was about the 3rd article I came to. So happy dearest Google brought me. Good to see there are others like me exploring themselves and each other and my heart is lighter for the discovery! Much love to all.

96 Lady B. { 04.30.13 at 8:50 pm }

I love this article. I am a proud Pisces. Thank you for your knowledge. I have one question. How do I go about doing this:
“Developing their opposite polarity, Virgo, through some specific skill or technique will help to stabilize and focus their emotional body into a form that can be used in service to others. It is then that they can truly shine and feel good about themselves.”

97 Genevieve { 05.01.13 at 9:08 am }

Dear Lady B,
Thank you ‘proud Pisces’! You need to look at your own birth chart and see where your Sun in Pisces lies; which house? Then look opposite at the house where Virgo is in. Do you have any planets there? Even if you don’t, it is in this sphere that developing a good specific skill or technique will enable you to become stronger and more focused in your energy of understanding, sensitivity, and compassion. I hope this helps!

98 Ayodele { 05.07.13 at 8:08 pm }

OMG… Some points here are true about me, but Rishi I kinda got lost man (or woman!. At a point, I was like OMG this guy should start a Pisces blog page and leave room for us to comment. No offences man or woman (or I’ll just use person instead)…u were so into the topic and now u got me into u. Its not fair, especially if u’re a guy cos I’m not gay… Ok, EOS….

102 Genevieve { 05.23.13 at 1:37 pm }

To Swapnil and Manish,
There are certainly many kinds and types of Piscean fish!! I’m a left-handed Pisces as well, Swapnil. In fact, the county where I live has an inordinate number of what we call ‘south paws’! I think the combination with Pisces makes for a highly developed right brain myself.

103 Juliet { 05.31.13 at 5:33 pm }

I’m 53 years old and it took me all my life to realise that what you have written is me…to the last dot and stroke. My only fear is…my mother is Virgo and a nut. I sincerely hope I don’t have to be anything like her to be whole as I feel quite complete now I know myself better. PLUS I’m RH- blood and she is Rh+, so I think I’m seriously an alien to her. Thanks for your article.

You express yourself so well! AND you have a good sense of humor. I’d say you are incorporating the opposite sign of Virgo nicely, and in a positive way.

105 Eve Harlowe { 08.08.13 at 11:24 am }

Wow! Such a lovely piece. I believe this is one of the most revealing and accurate descriptions of what it’s like on the inside of me. I really don’t appreciate the implication that Pisces are somehow weak in many descriptions simply because we’d rather avoid confrontations .I for one am an excellent debater and have been accused of being rather argumentative . I don’t agree. However I am very opinionated , and don’t mind expressing my thoughts and feelings on an issue. I end my comment with this. Water is at the same time tranquil and calm and violent/destructive. There again is the duality of Pisces.

Thank you :)

106 Genevieve { 08.08.13 at 12:42 pm }

Thank you Eve for your added contribution to this revelation of what Pisces is all about. Readers should also check out your web site which reveals what a good Pisces can do with images! The world of imagination and imaging is a Piscean playground.

107 Paul { 09.05.13 at 11:03 pm }

I have a concentration of planets in Pisces in addition to my sun sign.
I have to say that it can be a bit difficult sign to carry amongst the Cardinal and Fire qualities of this American culture.

just a thought…

108 Genevieve Vierling { 09.13.13 at 3:53 pm }

Tis a thought well taken Paul—
The American way is anything but ‘peaceful’!

109 Chavea { 09.18.13 at 4:21 pm }

I have a question I am a piscean earth dragon and is the mother of a piscean tiger. We are weirdly connected and similar but complete opposite. I name him camael after the angel. Im starting to feel weird. Is this normal?

110 Genevieve { 09.19.13 at 1:31 pm }

Dear Chavea,

We’ve just passed through a Full Moon in Pisces which felt a bit weird on a lot of levels. See if the feeling passes now that the Moon has moved on into Aries. If it hasn’t, are you feeling weird because of your son’s name, or just weird around your relationships with him? To a Pisces, these passing feelings can certainly change with the tides, so focus on what is good about yourself, your life and your relationship with your beautiful ‘Pisces Tiger Angel!’

great source if info

112 Sunny { 10.10.13 at 11:37 pm }

Dear Genevieve,
You truly brought out the inner piscean :-) in your blog. I am born on march 14th , south paw , a rabbit and located in San Francisco Bay Area.

Thank you

113 Arkyl { 10.19.13 at 5:37 pm }

Hi again to all from me and a special greeting to Genevieve , the creator of this lovely blog.

114 Megat { 11.14.13 at 9:29 pm }

Even I was born as a Pisces I have been a lot of suffer in my life.I feel that being a Pisces is awesome.:)

115 Megat { 11.29.13 at 7:30 am }

I’m a Pisces and I feel that my life have feel pain,suffering and crying, but my still hasn’t change a bit.I let and give my pain to sark side that can stay in bay I had enough suffering!but I’m still a Pisces and I will give up to find the happiness that I have ever wanted in my entire live.

116 Genevieve Vierling { 11.29.13 at 6:20 pm }

Megat – Thank you for sharing. I do hope your suffering can be released, and thus your own compassion will bring you closer to all who suffer. Certainly Pisces has a right to joy and bliss as much as any other sign. Pisces is Universal and holds all the other signs within its circle of love.

117 lily { 12.08.13 at 2:09 pm }

My brother and I are both Pisces and were always the ‘weird’ ones in our big family since we thought and acted differently. We were the only Pisces in the family. We got teased and criticised by our family and our friends. Over time we were able to adapt to someones personality, tweaking our personality to fit the other person. Even though we had difficulty trying to make the right friends, we managed in the end. We still have to put a mask on every time our cousins come round ours. It used to be tiring but now its second nature to us. After reading this, it really made me think about my life so far. It was very accurate to me. I’ve always been interested in star signs, chinese zodiacs etc, since our family are from Vietnam and are buddhists. I guess it’s true, Pisces always have different sides to them, you’ll never know what they’re really feeling.
Anywho, thank you!
btw i’m 13 and my brother is 12.

118 Genevieve Vierling { 12.09.13 at 3:49 pm }

Dear Lily,
Oh my! I wish I could meet you and your brother! You sound like my kind of people. And you so young but so wise already. Thank you for sharing your experience. I wish you every benefit and blessing in the coming year. Keep studying. Some day you will help a lot of others with your knowledge.

119 lily { 12.09.13 at 5:00 pm }

Dear Genevieve Vierling,
Thank you for the compliment, your very kind. Yes i am quite young but i don’t really consider myself wise, i still have a LOT to learn about this complicated life we live in… I really didn’t expect anyone to reply but i always kept on checking in case, i’m glad i found your reply ^_^
I was having a hard time today and was having an emotional breakdown, thank you for cheering me up!
Merry christmas and a happy new year! That reminds me, i still need to have that chocolate from my advent calendar.

120 Nikkie { 12.11.13 at 8:05 pm }

I’ve done a lot of reading of Pisces, as I’m a Piscillean ;-) BUT YOU………. I could not have put it any better. ( and that’s say a hell of A LOT) You described me on so many notes. We Pisces are indeed very unique and forever changing people. I like the whole Ocean concept. So calm and soothing to treacherous and deadly in a nanosecond. It’s REALLY REALLY crazy being female, Pisces AND left handed. SMFH. I have waaaaaaaaaayyy a lot going on in my head. But back to you. I would love to hear more.

121 Genevieve Vierling { 12.14.13 at 3:54 pm }

Thanks Nikkie for the kudos. I’ll try to write more on Pisces in 2014 for now that we have Neptune and Chiron in that sign we can swim those oceanic/universal waters more easily. I too am a left-handed Pisces! Takes one to know one!

122 Cindy { 01.10.14 at 2:40 pm }

Hello all fellow Pisceans
I just found this site..WOW…I have been struggling with my duality for many years..struggled with others opinions of how “normal” I should be. I say “I am proud of my should be so lucky”. Gotta through humor in everything…right. Well.. THANK YOU Genevieve
for this wonderful site. I do love being a Pisces. Im 57 years young and enjoying my life and any experience that comes my way. I resist sometimes but usually not for long. Look forward to the correspondence this new and exciting year.

123 Genevieve { 01.10.14 at 3:26 pm }

A big smile for you Cindy!

124 Arkyl { 01.11.14 at 7:26 pm }

The following message is a response to lily.
<>. Not only they inner knowledge and wisdom, but the self-knowledge lily possess is outstanding. I am 25 and i am sure that when you come to my age you will be years ahead :) Wonderful post, filled me with optimism!

125 Arkyl { 01.11.14 at 7:29 pm }

The editor skipped one line from my post so i correct it :)
My missed line was: I am sure i spotted a rainbow child here.
This is from my response to lily. Ty.

126 Rhonda { 01.23.14 at 6:20 pm }

This eloquent description is so enlightening! It filled in many questions I’ve always had about myself. I wake up different every day. I will be 56 in March. You’d think I’d stop doing that. I’ve been told that my sun and moon are both in Pisces. I used to think that meant I was just a train wreck waiting to happen! I deeply appreciate all you wrote. I don’t feel so strange about being such a dichotomy to myself. Fishy kisses to you Genevieve!!!

127 Lily { 02.03.14 at 3:56 pm }

This is a reply to Arkyl.
Thank you! My family and I are going through a rough time with finance currently and i was feeling a little down. Thank you very much. I always feel like i can relate to all of my friends problems, and most of the things they are going through, i have been through already. I am such a weird girl… This article sort of reminded me of the song let it go in frozen. I guess in a way, all pisces can relate to the song. Hiding ourselves and just feeling like an alien compared to everyone else. Well to me i feel like an alien anyway. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS ARTICLE!
Sorry i’m going off topic… I just wanted to ask, what is a rainbow child?
Thank you :)

128 Lily { 02.03.14 at 3:57 pm }

P.S i’m really sorry i replied so late!
And i know this is late also but happy chinese new year!

129 Lily { 02.03.14 at 4:03 pm }

I was reading the previous posts and i stumbled across Joseph. I’m also a pisces dragon. I am a pisces Metal Dragon. I would like to get to know you since you are the only other pisces dragon i know ^_^

130 Genevieve Vierling { 02.04.14 at 1:38 pm }

You are one remarkable girl, and I hope a dialogue is established between you, Arkyl, and Joseph. I hope down the road to write more about the special attributes of Pisces—–last, but not least of the signs!

131 Paul { 02.08.14 at 5:10 pm }

Are there self-hating Pisces out there?

The more I study about my sun sign, the more and more I don’t like it; It is one of the worst sun signs in contemporary American culture, especially for a heterosexual male. We have the lamest celebrities: Justin bieber, krap-sha, josh groban and the revolting joel osteen. Though we had a share of famous composers, the only famous composer to also be a murderer was a Pisces: Gesualdo.

As a dreamer, they seem to be way too interested in the idea of things than putting them into the material. Worse, they get moody and fatalistic about unaccomplished dreams that never had a chance of fruition. As a dream plus hyper-empathizer, they can easily get burned out and thus become deeply apathetic and disaffected.

I think it be better to have this sign ancillary in your chart: rising, venus in retrograde, moon, etc

I rather focus myself into my Scorpio, Taurus, Aquarian and birthpath influences: I am pisces, I can be anyone ;-)

Stereotypically, I’ll revert back to championing this sign, but not for a while…

132 Ap { 02.12.14 at 1:13 pm }

It’s a beautifully written piece. Thanks for sharing it. I think it would be even more interesting to combine the western and eastern signs. I’m a pisces and I certainly can identify with your writings. Now interestingly enough I was born in the dragon year which when you read into the eastern zodiacs is under the guidance of guan yin. A very interesting article indeed.

133 Genevieve Vierling { 02.12.14 at 4:46 pm }

There have been several of you Pisces Dragons commenting. I wish I was more well versed in Chinese Astrology. I do have the book ‘The New Astrology’ by Suzanne White where she integrates Western/Chinese. She does state that the Pisces/Dragon ‘is a mover! You’ve got to feel progress according to her. She also goes on to state that you will benefit from self-discipline and perseverance. What we now need is a chat room for all you Pisces/Dragons to confer with each other!

134 Ap { 02.13.14 at 3:47 am }

Thank you for your prompt reply and tip. I’ll look into it. If what you say about the appearance of many Pisces/dragon is true then all I can say is perhaps we’re on a journey to rediscover our inner self. Would be interesting to chat to other Pisces dragons. Thank you for your article once again.

135 Madelyn { 02.13.14 at 7:37 pm }

Every once in a while I like to re-research things about my Piscean sign and am pleasantly suprised having stumbled upon this writing. Thank you very much for a different perspective regarding our very complex sign. I will be turning 37 this year and am very happy to say I have found 2 awesome career choices with companies allowing super flexibility with scheduling. I am a certfied home health aid and licensed massage therapist/reiki II practitioner. I have almost always had jobs in health care or helping people in some way since I was 17. I was forced into a couple of situations caring for family members that were not the prettiest nor a level of caregiving I ever thought I could handle. Life gave me these amazing experiences and opened me up to a whole new world! A world that I finally feel that I am truly on the right path for the first time in my life!
Hang in there fellow fishes, your own ‘thing’ will come along if it hasn’t yet and once it does…..happiness does not even come close to expressing how you will feel!
I may be single forever and am quite happy with that as I have an amazing life without the necessity of ‘needing’ someone to fill that part of me anymore. I have a handful of great friends, an amazing miracle child, and a community that I can reach out to if I ever really needed help.

136 Genevieve Vierling { 02.15.14 at 3:58 pm }

Such a lovely affirmation Madelyn. Thanks for sharing your own story. It sounds like you are putting to good use your Piscean talents. I remember a very old astrologer, long gone, named Isabel Hickey stating that 12 house and Pisces are all about ‘serve or suffer’. I think the real key is to serve willingly and happily, which it sounds like you are doing.

137 Arkyl { 02.15.14 at 6:36 pm }

A rainbow child is a child from the stars :) It’s the 3rd generation or the 3rd stage of the incoming lightworkers with of course much more inner knowledge and wisdom :). I believe i am at stage 2 passing to 3 and when it comes to you, you were born at this advanced level :P. It’s simple as that, embrace what you are and proceed to the next stage or level , cause the levels are infinite and i guess only the one , the architect, knows where it ends. I hope i answered to your question. My heart goes out to you!

138 Paul { 02.18.14 at 11:12 pm }

my last post on Pisces was hasty, a bit obnoxious, and wordy; some of it was for other persons and I felt upset posting it on this site I respect.
That being said, It follows that I am frustrated at this present because I fit the Pisces short-comings way too well for my own liking. I have a friend who is a March 1 Pisces and he too exhibits the very same short-comings as I do.
The best advice, if one has this problem, I could give is to free yourself from poisonous surroundings the best you can do. Fish are very sensitive to their environment: they cannot swim in gasoline as they do water. For some Pisces, leaving their surroundings is tough so a new and idealistic world is formed in the mind…

139 Andrian { 03.01.14 at 1:24 pm }

Dear Genevieve, i want to thank you for this beautiful article. A few drops of tears coming off my eyes. My whole life was struggling by myself, people could and can not understand myself. I been hated for no reason, treated bad while beeing nice and so on. My heart broken for too many times but still could find love in it for caring for other people, not really expecting anything in return, maybe just a smile and a good word. Most of the people think they know me in advance and take me for granted but only when they get to know me for real they find things could never imagine. I want to tell you that a lot of the things you mentioned in the article apply to me and so grateful for the work and passion you put in it.

140 Srna { 03.02.14 at 11:44 pm }

Wow, I just read all of the above and am amazed! Genevive, what a beautiful post. So much understanding for the pisces people. I too am a Pisces, but right handed :) I think Pisces are such wonderful humans. We have big hearts, Sometimes i feel all of the weight of the world on my shoulders. I cry easy. However, I have two sides!! I can be very cold, very distant and very aloof. I always think to myself – with all those qualities mixing around in me- I dont really know if im one or the other. But, the good always outshines the bad. Please, post more on Pisces and knowledge you come across! Its a breath of fresh air to read something that really resonates. Also, Good Evening from SYDNEY. x

141 Genevieve { 03.03.14 at 1:03 pm }

To both Andrian and Srna,
Thank you for sharing with your truth and feelings! It’s very touching for me to read all these testaments. Pisces is the very last sign in the zodiac and truly often holds ALL the signs within. I do want to write more and am thinking of a potential article looking at real life Pisces on the public stage right now. Hope I can get it done before we move on into Aries. :)

142 stephany m { 03.15.14 at 9:02 am }

Thank you so much for this. My birthday is coming up (3/18/88) and as a earth dragon Pisces born in 88, I used to think I was just bad. That there was just something inherently wrong with me, I was damaged goods. This article had brought me so much knowledge and comfort, knowing and starting to understand what all of it really means. Things are really starting to come together for me finally at almost 26 years young. I look forward to serving God and my fellow human beings to the best of my ability with a smile and working everyday to become a beacon of God’s eternal healing light and love here on earth. Swim good, my fellow fishies. Peace and love

143 Genevieve Vierling { 03.15.14 at 10:47 am }

What a lovely share Stephany. You bring a smile to my day. I think we Pisces (yes, I’m one too!) have to experience the shadow for a bit to fully understand the whole. Of course the shadow can swallow some of us up, but I can see from my readership that you are the ones who have kept on swimming through. Keep in mind, also, that most Pisces ‘progress’ to Taurus/Earth and get pretty solid and grounded later in life; that is, if they don’t stop swimming during those early trials and tribulations!

144 Dev { 03.17.14 at 5:02 am }

I don’t think I have ever read such an authentic description of the Pisces sign! My birthday just passed few days ago. I was feeling overwhelmed by the raging emotions inside and stumbled upon your page. I’m glad that I did.
Just want to add that the prophecy of 21st December might have been mocked by many but I think they do not understand what it meant. The world can end in so many ways! The death of a beloved, losing a job, leaving one’s country , changing as a person etc. I have read in many places and even quantum physicists claim that the solar system and our earth is entering next dimension. So it is important that we raise our vibrations as what we focus on multiplies now like never before. Thus the importance of developing positive attitude and qualities.For Pisceans however, this is a tough task as we get affected by our surroundings and if the surroundings are not positive it can be such an uphill battle! I wish there was a way to calm us down and live more firmly and not be lost all the time !

145 Genevieve Vierling { 03.19.14 at 11:48 am }


I like your take on the Mayan end date. There are so many ways to interpret these prophecies all right.

I believe that once Pisces progresses into Taurus there is an opportunity to get more grounded and solid in life. I know this has proven true for myself and others I have witnessed.

Thank you so much for your great contribution here.

146 dev { 03.26.14 at 11:01 am }

Hi Genevieve , I am usually very busy otherwise I would have replied in more detail and with much more focus on our sign rather than anything else .

I would like to say something . I feel very concerned about the sensitive and intuitive nature’s we pisceans have. I just want to feel stronger . You would know thus , we are not weak . Once resolved , no leos or Capricorns or dragons can stop us. Haha. On a serious note , isn’t it true that our biggest setback can be our emotions and the confusion they generate ? I am already in a job I planned and witnessed miracles but great lessons came along with the miracles! Bittersweet lessons. I am 27 . Thinking about whether to go with heart or mind when it comes to choosing a career path or just stay where I am and use whatever time I have to spend it creatively.
Oh the resolve and clarity . If only resolve and clarity can come I know we are the best ones there can be. Anyone who doubts our strength should see a motivated piscean. I have seen the strongest signs getting intimated by a channelled pisces!

147 Genevieve Vierling { 03.26.14 at 2:23 pm }

Thank you Dev, once again. I appreciate your contributions to this blog. Yes, Pisces may allow their emotions to run them. I certainly have! So it is important to bring head and heart together and not use ‘idiot compassion’ when our better sensibilities tell us to be wise and wary. As Pisces progresses through the sign of Aries lessons are learned in thinking smart or smarter and becoming more independent. I believe that is when ‘resolve and clarity’, as you so succinctly put it, come more to the fore. Pisces also learn to avoid that which may prove harmful to the essence. It isn’t always necessary for a Pisces to confront unless many other souls are being taken into consideration. I think of Ralph Nader with his consumer advocate stance as a good example of when a Pisces takes out their sword of truth and does actual battle. Pisces fights best when fighting for the whole, not the self.

148 Maija { 03.28.14 at 7:32 pm }

I really enjoyed reading this. I am a Pisces Fire Dragon, with no earth in my chart, lol, and a mission soul for the cherry on top. Oh and gemini and Aries and my two others. I am a good description of both the fish and the dragon and have lived many lives in just this life. You write so very beautifully and seems to have your own vast depth of intuition. One of my favorite ancient txts says,” Behold for I send you out as a sheep amongst wolves, therefore be as clever as a serpent yet as innocent ad a dove.” Good advice for most signs, & especially for the Pisces in us all. Thanks for taking the time to create this site. I will have fun navigating it further.

149 Dev { 04.06.14 at 12:11 am }

Thank you Genevieve for taking out time to reply. I love this page.
Just one question, I was going through some comments and see words like Pisces Dragon etc. ? How do I find which one I am ?

150 Dev { 04.06.14 at 12:12 am }

Sorry for the typos in previous posts.

151 Bluelightlady { 04.06.14 at 9:46 am }

Hi Dev,
Thanks, again, for your in-put. To determine what you are in Chinese Astrology, you need to probably research on-line the YEAR you were born and see what you were as a Pisces that year. I have a book in my office that I can look it up on if you want to privately e-mail me. So, for example, this is the YEAR OF THE HORSE in Chinese astrology. But they break it down to specific ‘types’ of Horses as well. It’s simply another system in the astrological world. :)

152 Arkyl { 05.01.14 at 4:58 pm }

Sending a strong vibration to all of you brothers and sisters!

153 Alay { 05.05.14 at 9:37 pm }

Hey Genevieve this and All you guys who wrote and are pisces really helped me understand myself at 23 years of age.So first and for most as a respectable fish to my my sis’s and bro’s pisces I want to say thank you. This basically describes us in every aspect spiritual, mental, emotional, and physically. Often as a pisces I am mishnderstood in my family, friendships, and relationships, etc. Throughout my entire life actually and honestly I enjoy being misunderstood because no one could ever define my piscean ways and especially the elusiveness we empower deep within our hearts and souls But at times” many times” I was a your artucle said Genevieve in a way overwhelmed by the power as a pisces I know I encounter and therefore it made me fearful. But i was never really Afraid to be to strong in my heart and my mind just slight taken that its that powerful. I really discivered the gift at an early age just now learning how to apply it, and yes another thing Artistic you say? That is A aspect as well to me a new found obe we portray as pisces. We just opt for a deeper level of understanding its crazy lol.. I know I do and I know that an artist I could be if I wanted to and By reading you Gene and all you bothers it has youched me and futhermore influenced me to be even better. I mean at one point I discovered our loving magnetic nature amongst a group of people and my was I overwhelmed with the feedback and as pisces you we ask ourselves”me Omg , they really like?”All the time:). Changing the subject though, realistically what most or all the other signs dont know about us pisceans is that we are very strong in each I aspect. In a way from my observence the other signs can be weak in 2 key areas that our society is confused and brainwashed of withholding and those two are spiritual and mental aspects. I just hinestly feel as a pisces we just honor and respect our feelings so much that the other sugns dont they camoflauge in their physical strengths and worldly aspirations instead if the true depths or within the soul. Once they understand that our world can be a much better place. Heck I wish my Cancer Ex boyfriend understood that other side of my fish instead of the side that is like the shark demanding respect and out for any orey to pounve on if tampered with. .But as a pisces we have to right? that i have recently discovered it with in the last few years and unleashed it. It wasn’t pretty though people were offeneded and so was he, the Cancer Guy. Why when our strengths shine bright like a beautiful waterfall and are displayed to others they become sort of like jealous or inferior in a way I do not clearly understand? Can someone answer that for me? But Genevieve I have a specific question I have to ask of you ehst is about us that truly offends our other water signs and as a female. Pisces whose heart has been broken by the cancer I thought I was compatible with and the Scorpio who trys to egostically play gsmrs and use their playful Mystery thinking they can confuse me the most mydtiwur sign of them all…sorry I am rambling but help me figure out why the cancer broke my heart and why the cancer snd scorpio act ad if they dislike towards pisces I truly thought we were compatible im confused because I actually want my cancer guy bsck I misd him truly need major advice!!!But love you my pisces muahhh goodnight. .

154 Alay { 05.05.14 at 9:40 pm }

Please excuse my errors sometimes these phones do what they want

155 Genevieve { 05.09.14 at 2:25 pm }

Dear Alay,
Thanks for sharing so much. The paradoxes of Pisces are often difficult to fully fathom all right. There is so much power in the depths of Pisces that when unleashed it can shock others. As to others being jealous or inferior, I suspect there are other aspects in your make-up playing into this. Just comparing sun signs isn’t always enough to understand conflicts. You and your Cancer man may have Moons that don’t quite jive, or other planets that interact in conflicting ways. The one thing I can say, is that water signs do energize each other. Whether that energy is harmonious or challenging depends on many other factors between the two individuals. Your entire birth map would need to be studied as it relates to his to fully see the big picture.

156 Johnk690 { 05.10.14 at 6:47 pm }

Pretty great post. I just stumbled upon your blog and wished to say that I’ve really enjoyed surfing around your weblog posts. In any case I will be subscribing to your feed and I am hoping you write again soon! degkbkdekdeb

157 aish { 06.07.14 at 1:44 pm }

Its deep the way u have describedthis sign..opening every facet layer by layer just lyk a pisces… The multilayere mystic sign being unleashed in d same way…loved d article… N agree with it..
However,virgos r tend to be too practical n organised n as much i have known abit selfish.. We pisces hv this quality of gvng best of ourselves to others and unknwingly adapt their characterstics…
I didnt really got the virgo thing u said… Was not able to pin down the exact u please elaborate over it..?

158 aish { 06.07.14 at 2:08 pm }

I find myself as an odd dichotomy of rmotional amd practical and take decisions after wavering all pros and cons..i try tp balace both..sometimes its difficult but i ultimately succeed.. I think i have this power of playing with people minds and incept a thought or idea in their mind as if it was theirs… Though i dont do that often n when do then gr a good and genuine purpose.. Moverly emotional and understanding and nice soft towards peoplei love but ther see thos as my weakness and consider this as a way of hurting kwng theu arr fotgiven. It feels sad how people could tle advntage instead of cherishing the best of you.. Well but no one can change me.. I learn and become more strong on my values everytym someone hurts but after a long shadowy night… afterall whay’s lyf without diffrnt xperiences… Tjanks fr lovly article again..

159 Genevieve Vierling { 06.13.14 at 11:26 am }

Aish—-I’m not sure whether you’re referring to my actual Virgo article or Virgo discussed within the article on Pisces. Virgo is opposite Pisces in the Zodiac and therefore complementary to it. Pisces must learn from Virgo to be more discriminating and Virgo learns from Pisces to be more compassionate. I know this is simplifying the theme, but it’s a lot of work for Pisces to simply say ‘No’ when they’ve had enough. Virgo sets very defined boundaries, whereas Pisces moves beyond all boundaries. Being a Pisces in a body can be difficult, to say the least!

160 aish { 06.17.14 at 1:39 pm }

Okk…thanks for clearing my doubts…
Well..i guess i hv learned it…though m lyk off from virgos d irony is it was d virgo who forced n made me to learn it…

161 Genevieve Vierling { 06.17.14 at 1:52 pm }

Yes, we often learn from those who are the most difficult to be with or to take!

162 Arkyl { 06.20.14 at 6:52 pm }

I am feeling big right now… When that happens, i visit a place inhabited by giants like you my brothers and sisters! We are indeed giants…

Beautiful Arkyl! I’m happy to hear it and I’m sure others who visit this blog/Pisces theme will as well. May you always be held by grace!

\from a Scorpio in love with Pisces

165 Ella { 09.23.14 at 7:11 am }

I’m another pisces, and i just want to ask, is there any other stories or theories about Pisces, i’m reading up on this sign but also tiger from Chinese astrology because, tada, i’m both so yeah just curious, But i quite enjoyed the article and would love to read more :)

166 Genevieve Vierling { 09.24.14 at 1:18 pm }

Dear Ella,

There are plenty of stories and myths about Pisces. Here are just a few: “The Little Mermaid” by Hans Christian Andersen; Dolphin stories such as the Greek version of Telemachus being rescued from drowning by a dolphin; Dionysius, the shape-shifter deity, and the cult which arose around him; Cassandra, the prophetess who was cursed by Apollo so no one paid any attention to her; even Christ and his crucifixion is a Piscean story through and through. After all, this story initiated the ‘Piscean Age’ of which we are now in the midst of ending. There is the myth of Odysseus who eventually becomes lost in uncharted seas incurring the wrath of Poseidon (another Pisces archetype). Then there is Noah’s Ark, a story of an epic flood and possible salvation for new life. These stories go on and on because Pisces is the most Universal of all the signs and holds them all in essence within it’s strange and unfathomable nature. So enjoy your journey of inquiry!

167 Silent Psycho { 11.22.14 at 6:09 am }

Beautiful article, thanks for that.

168 Crystal { 12.28.14 at 2:43 pm }

I must say thank you. This is refreshing! Not for the purpose to make others understand, but to actually calm what they say. At times its hard to explain to someone that doesn’t want to understand. I can say I have lived a couple of the Pisces based stories you have listed. This was a great read keep on writing.

169 Ella { 12.31.14 at 6:35 am }

Amazing, simply amazing. You have written quite well, what I know about Pisces, being one myself, is that it simply isn’t as happy-go-lucky as everyone thinks, unfortunetly. When I ask, or research, what people think of Pisces I see and hear a lot of stereotypical answers, quite often I research about our inner rages and anger bursts. Actually it’s quite hilarious how people say Pisces children or pisceans in general are extremely shy, it’s stupid in my opinion, because me, being in my teenager years now, but when I was a few years younger, had been told multiple times, to seek anger managment. So, put simply all pisceans aren’t the same, And I absolutely LOVE how you’ve pointed that out, and shown that we aren’t as much of a push-over as the rest of the world seems to think. Although, amoung my friends, yes, I am the one being quite and offering to get things for someone, i’ve had one explosive encounter with an acquaintance, and I, well, yelled in his face that he shouldn’t be so argumentive when i’m simply trying to tell him some fun-facts, to which he simply shut his mouth, looked at me like i’m crazy and walked away as fast as socially possible. I’ve also been told by a few of my best friends, one being a lovely, loud-mouthed cancer, and the other a smart-assed Sagittarius, that when I keep to myself or when I don’t pay them any attention they feel awkward around me and feel i’m extermely mad at them. Am I the only one who, which i’m sure i’m not, has this affect on their friends? But anyway, i’m actually curious about your thoughts on an Earth-Tiger Piscean, I just happen to be one and am curious about anyones thought on the matter.

Have a lovely day/night/evening/morning everybody!!

170 Genevieve Vierling { 12.31.14 at 4:33 pm }

Dear Ella, What a wonderful sharing! Thank you so much. You are quite savvy for one so young, but I’m not surprised at this. Being a Pisces/Tiger you must have the ferocity of a feline cat with the tenderness of a Pisces all in one. Good for you for owning your anger side! Anger is a motivating force and can be directed into strong activism out in the world. Two great male dancers were born Pisces/Tigers: Nijinsky and Rudolf Nureyev. Check them out. You almost need professional outlets for your dramatic side where you are able to express the range and depth of your emotional body. Writing is also good for you because you express your feelings so vividly. And don’t allow anyone to de-claw you!!!

171 Adrian Anderson { 01.05.15 at 10:50 am }

Pakistani prisoner? Do you even know when Pakistan was formed? Over fifteen hundred years after the writing of the Lotus Sutra. :|

172 Genevieve Vierling { 01.05.15 at 8:24 pm }

Thank you Adrian for bringing this important detail to my attention. The source I used states Kumarajiva was a prisoner sold into slavery and that he originally came either from Taxila, in what is now northern Pakistan, or from Kharashar in Turkestan. I’ll make this distinction in the article itself.

173 Will G { 01.15.15 at 6:11 am }

Hi Genevieve,

I just had to leave a comment on here, (even thought I’m at work at my desk and should be busy!) I know my sign quite well and really glad i stumbled upon this article, I can honestly say I have never seen anything so beautifully written describing the sign of Pisces.

Essentially my situation at the moment is one of a “comeback” if you will. Like a lot of Pisces, I have used the escape of drugs (weed mostly) to cure my troubles and forget about them. This has been going on for nearly 2 years, I have cut myself of from my friends but even more my family which makes me feel so so guilty!

The reason? Rejection. Rejection from women, never getting the situation/relationship I wanted and it has driven me so inward at the start of January i could not stand being on my own constantly reliving past memories and failures.

The funny thing is in my memory I remember who i was before the drugs, I remember how good i can come across, how confident i used to be, how things used to click and like you mentioned in this post I had an inner strength that sometimes even shocked me.

Well Genevieve you’ve just helped one piscean on his way to re-gaining that strength that I know exists within me. I’m 24 next month, never had a relationship but I’m not going to give up or stop until I win and achieve the ultimate goal of happiness that I know awaits me!

I wish you peace and love and when my finances turn around I will definetly buy a reading from you!

Thank you


174 Genevieve Vierling { 01.15.15 at 4:50 pm }

I appreciate deeply your thoughts and sharing. I, too, have been there with the fuzzy land of weed. I’ll never forget how I stopped. A man who was totally into symbolism and the I Ching came over to our home and noticed some of the plants I was growing in our window. I showed him the red spider mites covering one of the plants. He immediately said to me, “Don’t you know what they are trying to tell you? RED SPIDER—–you’re not supposed to smoke that sh…t/stuff.” And I stopped that very day and have never had the desire ever again. That was many, many moons ago and my own psychic eye would never have opened the way it has had I continued on that path.

So good for you! Recognition is the most important element in making the important changes necessary to finding true fulfillment. I wish you much love and happiness Will!

175 jackie { 05.16.15 at 10:49 am }

Hey Genevieve,
I read your article and some of the comments.
I am a sixteen year old Pisces girl and I’m sure that being sixteen year old AND a Pisces in the year of the rabbit enhance my sensitivity. On top of me having changed the country I live in which put me in a stage of depression.
I just wonder if happiness is possible for people like us? How do we control our overwhelming emotions? Because it’s very painful, on a daily basis for me to deal with the changes I have to face in this Move. Did quitting marijuana help you? I smoke everyday. I feel like I find myself expecting other things and other people To make me happy cause I dont know how to deal with myself. I need a helping hand to guide me on the right path and nobody seems to know how

176 Genevieve Vierling { 05.16.15 at 3:42 pm }

Dear Jackie, My heart goes out to you! It’s not easy being sixteen and you have the compounded issues of a move far from what you are familiar with. But—yes—Pisces can be happy. Remember, Pisces is like the ocean which is wide and DEEP. Way down there it’s peaceful and still. So Pisces people have to go deeply within and find a spiritual path that ultimately takes them to that deep and calm place. Then happiness is more assured because you’re not looking for it to come outside of yourself.

Yes, I quit all outside escape substances like marijuana long, long ago. They clouded me too much and fogged up my mind. I like things to be crystal clear even if painful. I can deal with them better that way. I do hope you can find someone you can talk with. You can always e-mail me privately c/o this site. Just go to the ‘contact’ sidebar if you like. I also recommend finding someone you can reach out to help. Even if it’s an animal. Your sensitivity is needed in this rather crass world! Don’t give in nor give up. There is always some magic for Pisces.

177 Luke Gallant { 05.19.15 at 12:00 am }

I just wanna add my two cents and thank every pisces, particularly Genevieve for this wonderful and informative article. At times I’ve hated myself for being so ‘weak’ and considerate of others at the expense of my own truth and self-worth. This article has once again brought my perceptions into alignment and reminded me that ‘Im not alone!!!’. I wish all pisces out there strength, perseverence and love as we live out our duties in bringing light to a world that’s still very much in the dark!!!

178 Genevieve Vierling { 05.19.15 at 2:50 pm }

Thank you so much for sharing Luke! May your light shine brightly in this world.

179 Paul { 05.29.15 at 11:51 pm }

I think of the song “Spirits in the Material World” by The Police and I automatically think: Pisces…

180 Genevieve Vierling { 06.02.15 at 2:01 pm }

Thanks Paul for the song illustration. I’m going to go to YouTube and listen in.

181 Piscess { 06.22.15 at 10:55 pm }

Yeahh its soo true. i really liked this article.. Often im just lost in my own world or in my head trying to figure out something and i just sometimes came up with some interesting facts and when i tell my friends about it who are not pisces they would be just amazed by that then i would be sitting there like a boss haha i knoww but its really weird for me when i think too much about people, world, animals, or other things, it kinda stresses me out feeling like im some crazy person

182 Sunny Kang { 07.06.15 at 11:40 pm }


183 Paul { 07.16.15 at 9:48 pm }

Learning Astrology has given me terms, vocabulary, and concepts that describes the metaphysical and perceptions I experienced as a youth and could not, for the life of me, put into descriptions… and it’s probably the only known discipline which could achieve that.

-Pisces Sun/Merc Pisces/Aqua Moon

184 Genevieve Vierling { 07.17.15 at 9:29 am }

I wholeheartedly agree Paul—Astrology is a true cosmology that explains what often feels mysterious and unfathomable. It’s as old as any discipline we have developed on this planet for sure.

185 Ashwariya Ravika Ram { 01.01.16 at 10:23 pm }

Please tell me when will I find my soul mate and where is that guy from. Will I be able to succeed in my career. Please tell me in detail what are the things are going to happen this year.

186 Ashwariya Ravika Ram { 01.01.16 at 10:26 pm }

When will I find my soul mate. Will I be able to succeed in life. Please tell me in detail when will I b able to meet my soul mate and will he be a gud person for me.

187 Genevieve Vierling { 01.06.16 at 5:33 pm }

Dear Ashwariya, Your query cannot be answered specifically since you leave no birth data at all. I am assuming you are a Pisces, but there are millions of Pisces with all sorts of different destinies. I suggest that you go to a professional astrologer for help in finding these answers, and even then the ‘when’ is not always so easily seen as it does have a lot to do with you and your own readiness and willingness to connect. Soulmates often have even difficult paths together due to whatever they are attempting to learn from each other I might add; so be careful what you wish for! I would encourage you to ask how you can be the best possible mate for another so that you will find and attract the joy and happiness that you are seeking. :)

188 Genevieve Vierling { 01.06.16 at 5:36 pm }

Ashwariya, I answered the first part of your question with your later. As far as career is concerned, in general Pisces is such a universal sign that almost any path Pisces chooses can be the right one as long as they are focused enough to develop it and willing enough to let their own ego go. Serving a higher calling is always a good place to begin.

189 Mindful Mermaid { 02.06.16 at 1:50 pm }

Elemental of Water is instinct.
She is feeling. She is shapeless, fluid and malleable. She can be solid, liquid or gaseous. She is inconstant, always in flow. She is continually adapting to her surroundings. She nourishes and activates life. She is energy in motion – emotion. Her energy is extremely changeable and chameleon-like, and is able to take on many disguises. She can intuit the invisible, understand the unfathomable and empathize with all experiences.
Whilst thought, or Elemental Air, may influence energy to some extent, emotions more frequently underline our actions. Her emotions are her inner guidance and by being continually aware of her emotions she can steer her life in more conscious direction instead of being swept along a current of external thoughts and “situations”, under the influence or even direct control of others.
Mutable Water Mutable Water, Pisces, simply refers to the fluid exchange of emotionally charged light and sound between all living and non-living things.
Pisces – fluid, constantly changing, constantly seeking to connect, permeating every nook and cranny in consciousness, reflecting, imagining and sustaining life – is the quintessential water element. It may sound somewhat like a dictionary definition of empathy.
The symbol of two fish, attached yet swimming in opposite directions, being an empath is a two way emotional energy exchange between her and the world around her. Perhaps it is the human level of experience of life, that we often think and feel that we have no impact on the world around us. We tend to believe the impact on our lives is from the world and the people in it. But impact we do have.
We have the opportunity to dive deeply within, to experience the emotions that are driving our lives – fear or love. To find the way, close your eyes, listen closely, and attend with your heart.


190 Genevieve Vierling { 02.08.16 at 12:20 pm }

So beautifully stated!! Thank you. This is worth printing out and saving as a reminder of what Pisces truly can be and is.

191 claire-Polina { 02.29.16 at 1:23 pm }

192 joke { 03.13.16 at 12:38 pm }

Am 18,dis year, i av always wat to know about my self, i think a lot, in a short foam, i dnt av any think, bt even spiritual power, i jst want to know wat i like any dis like, am born in march 4th 1998, pls can you tell me more about my signs

193 Genevieve Vierling { 03.16.16 at 2:21 pm }

I can’t really tell you what you like and dislike. That is up to you to tell me!!! Your March 4th, 1998 birth data tells me that you have a lot of planets in Pisces all right. That may be your dilemma in trying to figure out what you believe in, what you think about, what you value. Your Venus is conjoining Neptune adding to your challenge to sort out your values for yourself. Give yourself time and patience! With Moon probably in Taurus, you first of all need security, solidity, enough of your basic needs met. You say you are now 18 years old. Good! It’s time to develop your talents and gifts which are many. Education looks to be very important in your Solar Chart. Try to get the best training you can afford! Spend time in nature. Learn some form of meditation. These will help you to determine your path. With Jupiter close to your Sun you have a good chance of finding guidance and becoming a true spiritual leader yourself some day! Never give up.

194 P { 03.17.16 at 10:46 pm }

I have three planets in this sign: Venus, Mercury, and the Sun; they are all conjunct. Would this count as a stellium?

195 Genevieve Vierling { 03.18.16 at 8:21 pm }

Ususally 4 or more planets conjoining each other are considered a stellium. I’d say yours is more like a triple conjunction. Thanks for asking!

196 Curious Pisces { 03.31.16 at 7:05 am }

Hey, so i’ve read this article many times and it still hits the spot everytime, but i’m curious on your thoughts on a pisces born on the 9th of march 1998. Although i already know my planertary signs as well as rising/asendent which is Cancer as i was born at 4:48 pm, i’m still curious on your perspective of my placments.

Thank you!

197 Dan { 04.06.16 at 7:28 pm }

Something’s fishy about this site. But yeah I’m a Pisces too. I’m nuts just like all of you;)

198 zain { 04.12.16 at 11:39 pm }

Hey, beautiful piece of writing. So depthfull. I stumbled upon this in search of answers. Im a virgo male in love with a pisces lady who in turn loves a pisces men, but he come in and out of her life, hurting her emotionally. After he came back again, i had a serious fight with her. We tried to workout our friendship but we kept on hurting each other. I finally took my leave when she said she need me but not my love. She just cant let me go but i cant stay seeing het humiliating herself. Now im super confused.

199 Genevieve Vierling { 04.16.16 at 2:18 pm }

Zain, I may have responded to another with a similar dilemma as yours, or is this you again?? Pisces can become attached to suffering or what is called ‘the doormat syndrome’. If she can’t get clear, you need to, and move on to someone who truly honors and LOVES your Virgo sensibility!

200 jojowa { 05.18.16 at 10:38 am }

Dear Genevieve,
I am very pleased and thankful of this article you wrote about this
sign of pisces,for i am now accepting my true sign,definitely a piscean.
I was confused before because my mother kept telling me that i was born
on nov 10 and was late registered on march 10 thats a lot of mess
on my personal documents.aside from that i kept reading my scorpio
since i was younger and a lot of it doesnt describe me well as i was wondering to myself,im way sensitive and can blend with other signs/people and can listen to others with lots of understanding and forgiving and kindness that a scorpio is lack of some of it and may be turbulent and assertive which is not my nature the way im feeling it.I’m not saying that i hate scorpio ,i actually admire their strong personality and determination and mysteriousness as pisces are but in a different level.
This article helped me a lot to know more of myself of why i suffered ,
struggled and yet survived it all and im positively thinking that there’s
a higher calling for all these experiences of mine.and im so glad that
im not alone in this quest…i didn’t just read the article but
through all the comments and realized i was spending almost 7hrs before
i get to the bottom of this and leave a comment and perhaps a story already
hahaha…im just overwhelmed here with happiness please forgive me my
sisters and brothers here…love ,peace and harmony for all of us pisceans
sincerely admiring the gentleness of our sign.the best!!.

201 Genevieve Vierling { 05.20.16 at 9:46 pm }

Thank you for sharing Jojowa, You are in good company as you can see from all the comments!

202 Gina G { 06.06.16 at 4:25 pm }

As a Pisces, this is the best description I have come across…this is me to a “T”. Praises to the writer of this article…I know I am not the only one like this THANK YOU!

203 Genevieve Vierling { 06.14.16 at 4:07 pm }

I appreciate your kudos dear Gina!

204 lisa { 06.14.16 at 4:15 pm }

I was born on Feb 20th, I am a Pisces for sure. My family never really excepted me and when anything strange happened They blamed me. I am called a dreamer, not in a good way: also lazy and someone who love misery. my family consist of a mother Aries two sisters Leo and Cancer, none who gets me so with out knowing and sometime knowingly will punish me or set me up to be punished by people who don’t know me: to hurt me. I’m fifty five yrs old and just come to realize I will never fit or be liked in my family for being so different. my children now are acting out the same behavior as my siblings and mother and was witness to so much of what I was taking through. My children are Leo twins and a Sagittarius. I gave all these people my heart and soul , as the universe gave me; and they have spit in my face. I now must learn how to go the rest of my life journey with out them, I still love them all and that wont ever change, but I hope I can meet some wonderful people up ahead on my road like the people here and the Writer who put this Beautiful message out for people like me I will paste this up for all to see on my wall. Thank You! Genevieve Vierling

205 Genevieve Vierling { 06.16.16 at 10:17 am }

Dear Lisa, Perhaps you’ll get a Gold Star for enduring and gaining understanding in this life. We never know completely why we go through so much suffering. I do hope some ultimate learning curve moves our collective beyond this need to have life after life of suffering. We used to talk about this when I was studying astrology many moons ago. Why the suffering to learn? I’m glad you have found this community to enjoy now. We embrace you and salute you! One other thing; it seems you’ve been drawn to Fire signs and people in this life. Perhaps study your chart to understand that more fully. Fire has a more difficult time being empathetic as a general rule. Of course I’ve known Fire sign people with big, and generous hearts! But Pisces can get lost around Fire signs. I’m sure you understand what I’m writing about!

You deserve an award for this…

208 Genevieve Vierling { 06.27.16 at 3:47 pm }

Why thank you MB!!

209 Genevieve Vierling { 07.08.16 at 7:30 pm }

Dear Shio, So sorry for the very long delay!! I don’t always have time to detailed analysis this way, but I did run your chart not knowing WHERE you were born however. You have a ‘Kite Configuration’ in your chart with the Moon in Leo at the tail and Neptune, Venus, and Uranus opposite at the head of the kite. The other two points which form a Grand Trine to your Moon are Mercury/Mars in Aries, and Pluto in Sagittarius. You are highly gifted with great spirit and creativity which you need partnership with to really fly high. The right partner is critical and it needs to be someone who doesn’t mind your strength and ability to really shine. Your Sun in Pisces then must take the high road with this amazing ability and stay humble and willing to serve for the greatest good of all so that you can be a bridge and healer in whatever you put your energies into. I’ll probably e-mail you privately so you’ll read this! :)

210 Shathawy { 07.11.16 at 8:56 am }

This is the best article about pisces I’ve ever read in quite a long time!!thank you so much Genevieve!!.Ive noticed some comments about being pisces dragon or something like that and I guess it has to do with the Chinese zodiac so i googled mine “i was born in 28th of February 1994″ and it turned out I’m pisces wood dog. I have this love interest who is also a pisces water rooster “born in 17th of march 1993″. I had this time where i felt the connection was magical and now after like 3 years in this relationship i just feel like im his rebound girl, like everything we had was because he just came out from a very bad breakup. Ive talked to him about being “careless” and not giving much attention to the relationship but he keeps denying and insists that “he loves me and that I only feel this way because we are in a long distance relationship”. This confusion leaves me totally drained and sad. I’m known for being an efficient person in work and someone with a cheerful personality but now i truly feel like i dont want to do anything and i give up on things easily. It’s like my soul has aged and I’m just waiting for death :( . I can’t believe that my emotions ruled my entire life and now I have no idea what to do. I became a person with a very bad temper and I rarely meet new people or go out. sometimes it feels like I’m sad and gloomy because I’m a pisces and everything is so magnified in my mind that it started crippling me from living my life normally like everyone else. reading bad news or hearing death news -about people i didn’t know personally or barely knew-drains me completely and i enter a realm of sadness and start feeling cynical about life. I know this is not a therapy session :’D but I hope someone would help me get out from this endless cycle. Thanks again for this amazing article.

211 Genevieve Vierling { 07.12.16 at 8:48 pm }

I’m so glad my article has touched you Shathawy. Remember the analogy that water signs, especially Pisces, can be like the ocean; the outer winds, storms of life, and upper currents can keep the emotional life like a churning, stormy sea, but deep, down there is calm. That’s probably why Pisces needs some type of spiritual practice to connect with inner peacefulness. I did take a look at your Solar Chart and see that Neptune has gone over your Saturn/Sun, probably when the relationship was more magical. Now transit Saturn has been challenging your Sun and thus more sadness and gloom possibly. Soon Saturn will move on and I hope the Sun ‘shines again’ in your life. You have Moon in Libra I see, so you do need harmony and a feeling of give and take in relationship. You also have Mercury/Mars right together in Aquarius, so clear communication is a must. You have a great chart, actually, for becoming a counselor in your own right. Water/Air is the best combination for working with people and providing empathy with objectivity. May rainbows and prisms of light dance in your life again soon!

212 Paul { 07.23.16 at 5:50 pm }

Ma’am- You’ve got so many accolades for this essay that I think we fish need a ‘PT II’ ;-)
And yes, I like to read your sign write-ups in the beginning, or right at the end of its sun-transit…

213 Genevieve Vierling { 07.26.16 at 4:34 pm }

Thank you Paul! I really should write a Part II; agreed. I will put this in my ‘hopper'; perhaps once Pisces rolls around again in a few months.

214 Annabel { 07.30.16 at 4:48 am }

Hi Genevieve,
This article is truly inspiring, thank you for posting it! As a budding Astrologer and fellow Pisces, it’s great to find material that aptly encompasses some of the qualities and experiences Pisces can go through. I particularly liked how you described some of the more stormy/tumultuous energies, I think a lot of people tend to think that Pisces is a mild sign, when in fact we can experience just as much – if not a great deal more – energy as the rest of the signs. From reading some other Pisces stories on this page here, its interesting to see that I’m not the only one who has had to really control the energies inside, particularly anger. Born 28 Feb 1995 in the afternoon, I have a Mars in Leo, exactly 0 degrees, in retrograde at the time and in opposition to my Mercury in Aquarius, which are the aspects I tend to attribute as a reason for why I sometimes have an explosive temper and sharp tongue…!!
My only query, which I would like some advice on if possible please, is how would you best advise a Pisces to deal with a Moon in Aquarius in a square aspect to a Pluto in Sagittarius, at least on a general basis? I’ve read that this aspect makes expressing emotions/feelings/thoughts quite difficult, especially with close loved ones and I do identify with this greatly, but its not very clear to me why this occurs or what I should do combat it. I have a boyfriend (we’ve been together over a year) and I know at points we both find it tough to talk to each other because expressing my inner self is difficult and I shut myself off when I feel its getting difficult, if you see what I mean?
I often do spend a lot of time alone and enjoying natural surroundings when I can and as you’ve advised in the article, but given my active Mars in Leo, I feel like I need to do something to improve my relationships with my loved ones. Not to say that aren’t good at the moment, they are for the most part really good! But I just have a feeling that later on when its time to really settle down and address more of the things that I want from life, that I will run into trouble expressing that and in the right way.
Otherwise, thank you again for such an insightful view of Pisces. I’m also glad you used Elizabeth Taylor as an example, she’s one of my role models and she was such an incredible lady. Her life is a fascinating one and as you described in the article, its no wonder she had so many journeys and adventures in her time to go through. What a Pisces she was! If there is a Part II to come, I look forward to reading it :)

215 Annabel { 07.30.16 at 4:52 am }

Oh and my Moon is in the 8th house, Pluto is in the 5th house – sorry, forgot to include that in my previous entry! Thanks :)

216 Genevieve Vierling { 08.02.16 at 10:20 am }

Dear Annabel, Thank you for your appreciation and your comments. In addressing that Moon square Pluto, I tried to do an approximate calculation of your chart based on your birth date. Not knowing the time or place of your birth I’ve tried to get that correct placement. Also, I’m wondering how your chart was calculated to get a Moon in Aquarius? I keep getting 0 + Pisces! So it looks like you are Lunar ruled making that Moon very, very important in the 8th. With the square to Pluto you have a double Scorpio meaning. Trust would be a major issue. You need to feel safe enough to open up. Was that feeling of safety ever violated when young? That’s something to explore. I actually have three children with Pluto/Moon aspects and I tried my best to be an exemplary mother, but certain episodes in my children’s early life could not be prevented. This aspect adds great depth to your emotional body, making it even more difficult to express fully the profundity of your feelings or even the extremes. Feeling extreme emotions is also part of your emotional body; I would say expressing yourself through something creative with Pluto in your 5th. That could be writing, music, fine arts, acting…. Pluto always adds an obsessive note to whatever it touches, so pay attention to that element as well. I have a son who is a very fine artist. Many of his illustrations appear on this blog, but he is basically a painter. This aspect lends itself well to his going back in time and re-surfacing 15th century artistic styles for example. Pluto helps you to bring back up from the depths of the past something and regenerate it. One of my daughters with the same aspect as you, but in different signs, is a Tango Dancer, for example. That is a very old and classic form of dance. One of the groups she is in is called ‘Tango Con Fusion’ (Google it!) and thus a new element is added to the old forms. I think you get the drift. Rather than fearing or seeing this aspect as a problem, begin to see it as a strength. Emotional depth and strength. It may take time for you to find the right outlets for expression. Hope this helps. You are a strong and powerful young soul with a lot to offer!

Thank you, Genevieve, that explains quite a few things for me and gives me some clarity!
Sorry for not offering my exact place/time of birth, that probably would’ve been more helpful! I was born in the UK around 13:50 and when looking at my chart, I do have quite a few planets that are placed very close to the transition between signs, if that explains my Moon in Aquarius and others across my chart? I know Pluto is also a 0 degree into Sagittarius, looking at it just now
Anyhow, I’m also glad to know that I’m not the only one in this case for having a Moon/Pluto square and that your children as per example have found good outlets for that energy, so I shall be sure to try and focus on some of my own hobbies. The obsessive, or at times really quite possessive, Pluto energy, noted also – I’ve found that in recent years this has been cropping up, so always a good reminder not to get too immersed to the point of no return.
As for the feeling of safety and most certainly, in short, I am the once bitten, twice shy person for definite. All past history and I have tried as much as I can to move on from them. But your words here have helped me change my view and I do see now how my Moon and Pluto can be used as strengths. Your points have reminded me of some things in my life that I have forgotten to use to help myself and I am very grateful, thank you again. This has also been helpful in my journey to better understanding Astrology.
All the best to you and your children as well in their successes. :)

Dear Annabel,
So now I’ve corrected your chart with place and time. Yes, your Moon is in late Aquarius adding to the complexity since Pluto is in early Sagittarius. This means that the square is perhaps more easily handled since both planets are in yang signs as well. Though I see that your Moon is also in-conjunct Chiron which adds another note of both complexity and challenge for you to ‘come out of your cave’ and do the healing work you came here to do. Your Chiron works beautifully with your Neptune,Venus,Uranus all in the 6th. You have a lot to offer others that is most special and loving!! I wish you bright blessings on your path!
