2 Pisces To Help You Know Your Zodiac
Ruling Planet: Neptune & Jupiter
Dates: February 18 – March 20
Two fish swimming in opposite directions represents the 12th and final sign of the zodiac, Pisces. Having absorbed every lesson – the joys and the pains, the hopes, and fears – learned by its predecessors, these astrological fish are the most empathetic, compassionate, and psychic creatures. Those born under this sign have deep levels of compassion, are soulful and joyful, and are both expansive and secretive. As natural dreamers, they may be easily influenced into pursuing unrealistic goals or ideas even when others can see that they should follow a more rational path. And although Pisces strive to take care of others, they have difficulty accepting help from others.
This ethereal fish loves exploring its boundless imagination as it is ruled by Neptune, the celestial body that governs inspiration and creativity. The energy of Neptune however, is similar to that of the ocean: magical, mysterious, and sometimes frightening. The planet’s allure is particularly strong, and when he transits your chart, you will be enveloped in a haze of dream-like inspiration. He combines love and beauty in an intoxicating way. You might feel like you are disconnected from reality with him as he makes you see other worlds.
Pisces representatives are known for their vision and ability to access the collective unconscious. Attracted to art, music, and any sort of liberal expression, Pisces need to make use of their talent to feel creative and free.
As a sign exalted by Venus, serving love, devotion, pleasure, and all that is beautiful and tender, Pisces is the sign of incorrigible romantics. Despite their kindness and generosity toward their partner, they sometimes lose sight of their moral values in the pursuit of love. It is crucial that they feel connected to their partners so that they can open up and discover a deep feeling of absolute trust in a perfect love that drives them away from the idea of change.
While these fish are loyal in their own way, they also tend to internalize other people’s problems, to the point where they make them worse. Often, they gossip not out of malicious intent, but because they are interested in other people’s lives.
Examples of well-known Pisces include Rihanna, Yemi Alade, Olamide, Korede Bello, Seal, and Lupita Nyong’o.
Father of two sons and YBNL label owner, Olamide Gbenga Adedeji also swims in the Pisces pool. This underwater creative is a famous Nigerian hip-hop artist and one of the biggest and most influential artists in Africa. Another thing Olamide is known for is doing what he can to help young talented artists from the ‘streets’. Lending them a verse or two helps them float their young careers. Giving back to where it all began for him is as charitable as can be.
Mama Africa as she’s popularly known—and her album is aptly titled—is more than a singer, actress, and songwriter. She is also a huge activist. Alade was featured and performed at the Nairobi Summit on ICPD25 for the campaign ‘A Global Call to Action’ for handicapped children in Kenya. Putting their feelings on the back burner and helping others live better is a character Pisces are known to exhibit.
