Astrology has been around for thousands of years and is once again more popular than ever! Since ancient times, mankind sought to better understand the world in which they lived, but also themselves. By charting the patterns in the sky above, people began to see that the movement of the stars reflected major situations and key timing. People wanted to know when the best times to plant, harvest, take action, look for love, and beyond. Over time, they distilled the key times to do everything. In essence, astrology is a guide of when and how to live. However, by viewing the movement of the stars, they were also able to understand more about themselves and other people. As the zodiac emerged, they distilled the sky into twelve zodiac signs and twelve houses. Each zodiac sign had a guardian planet and a symbol—or spirit animal. Pisces, the final zodiac sign on the wheel, has a special place in astrology. Want to learn more about spirit animals or the Pisces spirit animal?

What is the Pisces zodiac sign?

Pisces is the twelfth zodiac sign in astrology and is ruled by the planets Jupiter and Neptune. Jupiter was its traditional ruler in ancient astrology. Jupiter is the planet of luck and growth. This energy helped Pisces to be expansive, spiritual, and open-minded. In modern astrology, Pisces is ruled by Neptune. Neptune is the planet of imagination, spirituality, and mysticism. This aids Pisces in being intuitive, creative, and romantic. Venus, the planet of love, is exalted in the zodiac sign of Pisces, meaning it can vibrate at its highest level. Mercury, the planet of logic, is in detriment in Pisces. This means Mercury is at its most challenged place here.

Pisces is a Water sign. This brings Pisces immense levels of intuition, sensitivity, and compassion. Pisces are the most “watery” of the zodiac signs, bringing them powerful emotions and feelings. They are also the most psychic zodiac sign in astrology. The other Water signs are Cancer and Scorpio. Pisces is very compatible with these zodiac signs or the Earth signs: Taurus, Virgo, or Capricorn. Pisces is least compatible with Fire signs—Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius—or Air signs—Gemini, Libra, or Aquarius.

Pisces is a Mutable zodiac sign. This means it ends its prospective season: winter. It aids us in transforming from winter into spring. Mutable zodiac signs are known for their flexibility and versatility.

Pisces is the opposite zodiac sign of Virgo—meaning they are on the same polarity. This is the polarity of the sixth and twelfth houses. Because of this, they both tie to service and health. Virgo is more aligned with the physical world and health, as well as our daily routines, responsibilities, employment, coworkers, and pets. Pisces, on the other hand, is more aligned with the mental, psychological, and spiritual worlds. Pisces is also the zodiac sign of the “undoing” and karma. This zodiac sign rules our private lives, as well as places of healing, rehabilitation, and imprisonment and confinement. Mental health, psychology, and spiritual evolution are ruled by this place in the zodiac. It also connects with intuition, psychic ability, and the multitude of spiritual talents: clairvoyance, clairaudience, and beyond.


When is the Pisces zodiac sign?

The season of Pisces is February 18 or 19 until March 19 or 20 each year. It depends on when the sun is moving through the zodiac sign of Pisces.

When someone says they are a Pisces, this means they were born in the time of the year of Pisces.

If someone is a Pisces Moon, the moon was in Pisces at their time of birth.

If someone is a Pisces Rising or Pisces Ascendant, the sun was rising in this zodiac sign at their exact moment of birth.

What is a spirit animal?

A spirit animal is often tied to the symbol of a zodiac sign. For instance, Taureans are represented by the bull. However, people can align with a different spirit animal because they seek to channel its energy and these can be chosen on a personal level. For instance, if looking for guidance, someone may choose an animal that represents this, like an eagle. If someone is looking for transformation, they may call upon the energy of a butterfly. If you are looking to call on the energy of strength, you may summon a tiger. If you want to call upon the power of healing, you could summon a bee. If you wish to hone your intuition, you could call on an owl. If you want to amplify creativity, you could align with a spider. Spirit animals can evolve and change as an individual grows, too. While many established spirit animals have specific metaphors and correspondences of their own, you can also trust your innate connection to that creature.

What is the Pisces spirit animal and what does it embody? What is the perfect spirit animal for Pisces?

In astrology, Pisces is represented by the image of two fish. The fish are swimming in opposite directions. In another sense, it can look like the infinity sign.

Fish are known for their flowing, watery, and sensitive energies. Fish are often connected with creativity and spirituality, as well. For instance, fish are referenced a great deal in Christian theology or in relation to the “Age of Pisces,” which focused extensively on Jesus Christ.
