The Pisces sign is the 12th of the Zodiac, and the final in the zodiacal cycle, thus bringing together many of the characteristics of the 11 signs that have come before it. However, most times Pisces keep many of these qualities under wraps. They are selfless, spiritual, and very focused on their inner journey.
Feelings define the Pisces sign. They place great weight on their own feelings but also on others’ as well. Their intuition is higly evolved and they are comfortable in an illusory world. Hence, many people associate those born under this sign with dreams and secrets.
Moreover, historically the constellation known as Pisces has been associated with many divine figures in history, such as Poseidon, Christ, Vishnu, and more. Pisces is the Latin word for “fish,” and in Greek mythology, this constellation represents the Koi fish that saved Aphrodite and her son Eros from the sea monster Typhon. As a reward, the two fishes were placed in the heavens to shine for all of eternity. Hence, the Two Fishes symbol of the sign.
Pisces is the 4th and final of the mutable signs in the zodiac wheel, who all hold an energy of change, liminality, and adaptation at the end of one season, and the beginning of the next. Pisces begins the last phase of winter, when the cold season is less established, lending to the fluid and changeable sign qualities of the Pisces-born.
Pisces’s element is water, the 2nd heaviest element. Water represents the moistening and cohering principle that binds and connects all forms of nature. Without it, nothing that takes a material form could “stick” together. Water fertilizes earth so that nature and creativity can incubate and bloom. Pisces’ creativity, intuition, imagination, and strong inter-relational talents are all akin to the connectivity of the water element.

Finally, Pisces are widely known to enjoy sleep for up to 18 hours. They find emotional and spiritual nourishment from sleeping, which is characterized by a sequence of dreams. They love living through their subconscious, and use their sleeping time as a way to see the world in a different way.
