Pisces is the twelfth astrological sign of the Zodiac, with a duration that lasts from February 19th to March 20th. This sign’s birthstone is aquamarine, befitting its nature as a water sign associated with Neptune and its constellation of two fishes.
Those born under the sign of Pisces—sometimes called Pisceans—are often associated with imagination, emotion, dreams, and artistry. Pisceans can find inspiration in the most unexpected places and cherish deep friendships, but they can also become stuck in their thoughts and may become anxious or depressed. They should be encouraged to speak up, stay focused on the present, and find the strength to set healthy expectations in their relationships.
