Pisceans have an intuitive psychic ability that easily tops any other zodiac sign. In this blog, get your sea legs ready and discover some interesting facts about this loyal and kind water sign.
#1 The Zodiac Symbol for Pisces is the Fishes
Pisces is symbolised by two fishes swimming in opposite directions, representing how a Piscean often feels; like they’re being pulled in two different directions, making it hard to be assertive and make definite choices in life.
In mythology, it’s believed that Pisces came to be when Venus called upon Zeus to save her and Cupid from a sea monster. They were able to disguise themselves as fish and swim to safety. The fishes were named Pisces, and to truly escape the sea monster, they were immortalised into stars.
#2 Aquamarine and Amethyst are Pisces Birthstones
Aquamarine is a beautiful gemstone that belongs to the Beryl family of stones and is one of the most famous blue gemstones on the market today. Many people believe that Aquamarine is an “all-purpose” healing stone, able to treat both spiritual and physical ailments. There are many different shades of Aquamarine, but the most common form is a pale blue.
Amethyst is a beautiful vibrant purple gemstone found in abundance worldwide. This stunning quartz is said to encourage growth, spiritual expansion, and help those who wear it find peace within the mind and soul.
#3 Pisces Carry the Characteristics of All Other Zodiacs
Being the twelfth and final sign of the zodiac, Pisces carry the characteristics of all the other star signs that fall before them. This means Pisceans are not only in-tune with their own feelings but also feel the emotions of everyone else around them.
Known as a mutable water sign, Pisces represents our will to transcend and evolve into greatness, guided by a deep connection to the world around them that’s not often visible or clear to other star signs. Pisceans are excellent listeners and prone to helping people fix their emotions by wielding great powers of empathy and adaptability.
#4 Pisces Have Strong Intuition
A Pisces gut feeling is rarely wrong due to their ability to think and feel things differently and often on a much deeper level than other zodiac signs. It’s believed that Pisces “just knows things” from deep within and can easily see if a situation or person is worth their time and energy.
This thoughtful star sign carries the knowledge and realisation that there’s so much more than meets the eye in life. Everyday existence can become mundane for many people; however, a Pisces is able to find beauty in all situations. Recognising these moments allows Pisces to not only be creative but also quickly determine whether a person can bring joy or misery to their life.
#5 Pisces Ruling Planet is Neptune
Neptune was discovered in 1846 and is the furthest planet in our solar system. This planet governs all things within the spiritual dimension, like intuition, dreams, and psychic perception. For those born under this zodiac, having Neptune as a ruling planet brings creative freedom and encourages daydreams and fantasies to offer guidance.
Neptune encourages Pisces to use their emotional intelligence to create unique opportunities by bringing out their instinctive spirituality. Both Pisces and Neptune rule the deepest realms of the subconscious mind, with creativity combined with compassion making this star sign a force to be reckoned with.
