Astrology Signs: The Faces of Pisces

Carol finds astrology fascinating and spends her free time researching and writing about it for her astrology blog.

Pisces: February 20–March 20

Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac, though never last in life or in line. Pisces people have the reputation of being kind, gentle, generous and of good humor. Though this is often true, they can be very tough at the negotiation table. Easy-going and flexible are two adjectives that really describe the Pisces personality.

Discipline in many areas of life is often difficult for these Pisces people. They often want to be noted for their creative minds, regardless of what field they choose to follow. They are generally accepting of people around them and can adjust to many difficult situations. On the other hand, they often find solace in their own minds, which are full of fantasy and dreams. Pisces can be good listeners when the topic suits their nature. They are most accepting of new ideas and thoughts to handle different issues. Pisces make great writers, artists, and professionals in other artistic endeavors. Pisces are wonderful friends and always close by when needed.

Pisces people also make fine architects with their futuristic outlook on life, and lawyers with their ability to see things others do not. Pisces often have several careers during their lifetime, having the challenge of figuring out what they like to do best.

Pisces need good nutrition to stay healthy and also lots of exercise. It is a known fact that they often have feet problems. They love the water and are most happy living close to a body of water, especially the ocean.

The Decans of the Astrological Horoscope

Each astrology sign is broken into three parts (decans). If you were born the first ten days of any sign, you show more characteristics of that astrological sign than the second and third parts.

This formula follows through for all zodiac signs:

  • Air signs: Gemini, Libra, Aquarius
  • Earth signs; Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn
  • Fire signs: Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
  • Water signs: Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces

For Pisces, each decan is ruled by a different astrological water sign.

  • The first 10 days: ruled by Pisces and the planet Neptune
  • The second 10 days: ruled by Cancer and the Moon
  • The third 10 days: ruled by Scorpio and Pluto

The First Decan: February 20–March 1

If you were born between these dates, you were born in the first decan of Pisces. You are a stronger Pisces than your Pisces friends born later in the month. You have a sense of romance and fantasy and can often wander off into the depths of your imagination. Being impressionable, you have to be careful not to be taken in by unsavory people with ulterior motives.

You are generally positive and optimistic—sometimes to a fault. Checking out details and being realistic is something on your learning agenda. As a sensitive and intuitive person, you often sense others' moods and feelings without them saying a word. Be careful not to shoulder everyone's burdens as it can affect your well-being. You are a wonderful friend and a good listener.

The Second Decan: March 2–March 11

If you were born between these dates, you were born in the second decan of the zodiac sign of Pisces. This decan picks up many traits of the Cancer personality that is ruled by the moon. Of all the Pisces people, you are the most sensitive and psychic. You feel things are going to happen sometimes long before they happen. With your sensitivity, you will make a wonderful therapist, counselor, or even mentor to others. You are the friend on call and will do anything for a good friend. It is often easier for you to give than take. With your feelings for others, you can often pick up emotions that interfere with your logical thinking.

The Third Decan: March 12–March 20

If you were born between the dates of March 12 and 20, you were born in the third and last decan of the zodiac sign of Pisces. You have a strong influence from Scorpio and their ruling planet Pluto. You have an intense personality and tend to delve seriously into anything that interests you to the point of obsession. You often look for the true meaning in life and have a strong but personal sense of spirituality. You have your own universe that you believe in. The water is very soothing to you, and you can often create a meditative state by being near the water.

Holle Abee from Georgia on May 07, 2013:

Two of my daughters are Pisces, and I'm sending this hub to them. Great job here, Carol. Voted up!

carol stanley (author) from Arizona on March 02, 2013:

Thank you Melovy; It is always amazing even to me how so much works and fits. Thank you for visiting and sharing.

Yvonne Spence from UK on March 01, 2013:

I didn't realise you were a professional astrologer. It's strange because I'm never 100% sure I believe in astrology, yet I am a Pisces and 100% Piscean! Your description is me for sure. I had my chart done years ago, and that was very interesting.

One of my daughters is also Pisces and she fits it too and has had feet problems. (I haven't though.)

carol stanley (author) from Arizona on February 27, 2013:

Thank you for coming by and reading.

Eiddwen from Wales on February 27, 2013:

A wonderful read carol and thank you for sharing.

Vinaya Ghimire: Thanks for dropping by and lovely comments.

carol stanley (author) from Arizona on February 25, 2013:

Old Roses. Descriptions are never 100 percent and many other influences in charts. I often say things and do wonder as we are all individuals. There are some traits that sometimes seem universal. Thanks for commenting.

Vinaya Ghimire from Nepal on February 24, 2013:

In our culture, usually astrological chart are read for compatibility between the prospective partners, choosing a career, and financial position among others. I learned something new from this hub. Cheers

Caren White on February 24, 2013:

Imagine me saying this with a smile: my ex-husband was a Pisces, but doesn't fit your description at all. Maybe he lied about his birth date. I wouldn't be surprised. He lied about everything else.

Seriously, thanks for this hub. I can cross Pisces off my list of signs to stay away from. They sound like interesting people.

carol stanley (author) from Arizona on February 24, 2013:

Thank you jeannieinabottle: I am glad you enjoyed reading about Pisces people..and that you are one.

Jeannie Marie from Baltimore, MD on February 24, 2013:

I am a pisces in the third decan and it does sound quite a bit like me. I can be a bit of obsessed (as you've probably already figured out about me) and I consider myself pretty creative. Thanks for sharing this interesting hub!

carol stanley (author) from Arizona on February 24, 2013:

aviannovice: thanks for dropping in my friend...and glad it works..It usually does.

carol stanley (author) from Arizona on February 24, 2013:

bravewarrior: I will write you an email. Thanks so much for dropping in and enjoying the Pisces hub I have many Pisces people in my life including my husband. There is a strong connection...

Deb Hirt from Stillwater, OK on February 23, 2013:

This is me, Carol, third decan.

Shauna L Bowling from Central Florida on February 23, 2013:

Carol, you are spot on. I was born March 3rd. The various career paths you mention is also true. Although I now write for a living, I have been a dietary aide in a hospital, finished donuts at Dunkin Donuts, operated a dry cleaners, worked retail, was an employment counselor, copywriter and accountant. All this without a college education. Inquiring minds want to know!

I really enjoyed this hub. I'm interested in you doing my chart if you still do that. Shoot me an email and let me know what you need, cost, etc.

carol stanley (author) from Arizona on February 23, 2013:

Gypsy Rose Lee from Daytona Beach, Florida on February 23, 2013:

Voted up and interesting. This was a fascinating hub especially for me. I'm a Pisces born on March 1. I just made it in the first decan. So exciting. Great info and passing this on.

Wayne: Thanks for dropping in for a look at Pisces people. Always enjoy a visit.

carol stanley (author) from Arizona on February 22, 2013:

Bill: Thank you so much for visiting and comments. You have a great weekend.

Wayne Brown from Texas on February 22, 2013:

You just described my brother-in-law quite well in his birthright. He is definitely creative and can do most anything once it comes together in his mind. He amuses himself playing with ideas in his head. I am always amazed at what he comes up with out of those sessions. Thanks for unlocking that door! ~WB

Bill De Giulio from Massachusetts on February 22, 2013:

Hi Carol. I have a brother and sister who are both Pisces, third decan, the 15th and the 17th. You hit the nail on the head with both of them. Great job. Have a great weekend.

carol stanley (author) from Arizona on February 22, 2013:

Thank you for stopping by.

wabash annie from Colorado Front Range on February 22, 2013:

When I saw your hub was about Pisces, I just had to read it. I know someone very well that was born on the Ides of March ... the 15th. This person is artistic but, otherwise, does not fit the pattern/description. Interesting hub!

carol stanley (author) from Arizona on February 22, 2013:

Thank you Bill..I hope that will be true. And I will follow your advice...As always I appreciate your support.

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on February 22, 2013:

I'm not sure, but I don't think there are any Pisces in our family. Having said that, I'm sure you are quite accurate in this as you always seem to be. Great job, Carol! Your audience will grow; just be patient and keep pounding this niche.

carol stanley (author) from Arizona on February 22, 2013:

Sannei: thank you so much for visiting and lovely comments..and so glad it fit

Sannel on February 22, 2013:

This is so interesting! I'm Pisces and it's amazing how many things fits into my own personality. I know I have all the traits for Pisces except for the feet problem. I never had any problems there. I'm born in the first Decan of February, and I have a tendency to shoulder everyone's burdens and I'm also very sensitive and intuitive person. I sometimes wish I was not so sensitive, it would have made things easier. Thank you for a really great hub!
