Pisces (February 19 – March 10)
If there’s one animal that could represent the piece of work that you are, Pisces, it would have to be a squirrel. You’re fastidious, quick, and selfish. You hoard until there’s nothing left, and you glut yourself until you pop. You are nervous, frantic energy in a cute package.
Pisces (♓︎) (/ˈpaɪsiːz/; Ancient Greek: Ἰχθύες Ikhthyes) is the twelfth astrological sign in the Zodiac. It is a negative mutable sign. It spans 330° to 360° of celestial longitude. Under the tropical zodiac, the sun transits this area between February 19 and March 20. In sidereal astrology, the Sun currently transits the constellation of Pisces from approximately March 12 to April 18. In classical interpretations, the symbol of the fish is derived from the ichthyocentaurs, who aided Aphrodite when she was born from the sea.

In early Greco-Roman mythology, the story of the Pisces constellation follows the brutal defeat of the Titans at the hands of the Olympian Gods. After the power struggle, Gaia (Mother Earth) coupled with Tartarus in the lowest depths of the Underworld, and from this unexpected union was born Typhon. Typhon, as powerful as the Titans themselves, had one hundred dragon heads with flaming eyes and mouths filled with black tongues. Hesiod tells us that he was the most awful monster the world had ever seen.
Gaia sent Typhon to destroy the gods on Mount Olympus as revenge for the death of the Titans. Fortunately Pan, god of the shepherds, saw the monster coming and warned the other gods, giving them just enough time to transform themselves and go into hiding. Jupiter took the shape of a ram, Mercury an ibis, Apollo a crow, Diana a cat, and Bacchus transformed into a goat.
The two fish were hung in the northern skies to commemorate the day of Venus and Cupid’s salvation
Venus and her son Cupid, however, were caught unawares while they were bathing on the banks of the Euphrates River. By pleading with the water nymphs for protection, they were transformed into fish, and their tails were tied with a cord so they wouldn’t be separated. Just before Typhon could destroy them, they swam into the depths of the river. In another account, two fish appeared on the riverbank and carried Venus and Cupid to safety.
Pisces is a constellation of the zodiac and is located in the Northern celestial hemisphere. Its name is the Latin plural for fish. It lies between Aquarius to the west …
