Pisces Sign Symbol
Pisces is the twelfth and last zodiac sign on the zodiac circle and represents the transition of the sun through the sign of the Fishes between February 19 and March 20 every year, according to the tropical astrology.
Therefore, everyone who is born in this period is said to belong to the Pisces sign. The symbol associated with this sign is the Fishes. They are often associated with divine consciousness.
This pair of fishes seems to be swimming opposite directions, therefore suggesting the dual and emotional nature of the Pisces individuals. The glyph for the Pisces zodiac sign depicts the two fishes always tightly connected, always heading opposite directions.
Symbolism and history of the Fishes:
The Fishes in the Pisces astrology meaning are the representative figure of two beings who are strongly connected like through an umbilical cord but whom are always craving for different things, therefore swimming one in a direction and the other in another direction. This suggests the duality of the human nature and of life in general. It can be referred to the yin and yang or the forces of the two sides of the human brain.
The fish is depicted in religious iconography as related to the cycle of life, a beginning in the evolutionary process. It also suggests the ability to view everything from the both sides.
Characteristics of the Fishes:
The Pisces natives are all like their symbol, sensitive, moving freely and empathic. They are as moody as the tides and the perpetual movement of water everywhere. They are of great depth and intuition too.
These natives are compassionate and eager to follow and connect to their peers, they seem to be going with the flow and they try not to complicate their lives unnecessarily.
The two fish swimming opposite directions refer to their complex process of thought and to how they are often conflicted between their beliefs and their feelings. Pisces natives are versatile and quick to adapt to change. They are friendly and affectionate on the surface but complex dreamers and sensible thinkers on the inside.
