Pisces Is Ruled by Neptune
This is the true, original analysis of astrology as pertains to Pisces by Professor Fredrick White as written in “A Guide to Astrology”, published in 1901-1904. In other words, here is your information from the source; without the 100+ years of modern interpretation and commercial modifications by others.
This 100+ year-old manuscript has been cleaned up and somewhat paraphrased for an easier Third Millennium read. However, as promised, an image of the original, unaltered manuscript is also included. Ctrl+/- will adjust the size. For historical perspective and additional nuances, it is worth the read.
Information for this article was compiled from United States (U.S.) government archives.
There is a short metaphysics experiment at the end.
Pisces is a watery, feminine, and fruitful sign. This sign is ruled by Neptune (the planet of inspiration and idealism). The Sun enters Pisces on February 19th and passes into the sign of Aries on March 21st.
Personality traits include being generally kind, loving, and tend to be easy going. They seem to handle misfortune well. Those born while the Sun is in this sign are imaginative and idealistic.
They are studious, logical, and methodical. Pisces people are mathematical and will engage in scientific reasoning when they set their mind to it. They avidly pursue knowledge; following their research with untiring dedication.
This sign is captivated by music and beautiful scenery. Once they make up their mind, they have great determination in reaching their set goal. Conversely, lack of confidence often prevents them from starting a project that they very well could have accomplished.
Those born while the Sun is in Pisces sometimes speak spontaneously without thought to the possible consequences. They often lack self esteem; causing hesitation in presenting their point of view when necessary. Their personality can be generally timid and modest, can be easily influenced to tears. May lack self-confidence.
Harmony and Compatibility
Pisces people harmonize and are best compatible with Cancer and Scorpio. They also get along well with Taurus and Capricorn.
Best Career Paths and Jobs

Gemstones and Birthstones
The fortunate gems of Pisces people are amethyst and jasper.
This is the Age of Aquarius and it will remain so for the next two millennium. The former age was that of Pisces.
The final (Editor’s note: circa 1901) paragraph in the manuscript below addresses this phenomenon in interesting detail.
