Personality and Characteristics of the 12 Astrological Signs – Pisces:
The twelfth and the last sign of the zodiac is Pisces the fish. It is a mutable water sign, and is the most ethereal and sensitive sign of all twelve. People born under this sign are compassionate, sentimental, and perceptive. Pisces is the most watery of the three water signs, giving people born under this sign empathy and selflessness.
Pisces is ruled by Neptune, the planet of water and of mysticism. Those born under the sign of Pisces make for great psychologists and counselors due to their ability to understand others and their soft approach to emotional issues. They are under the dreamiest sign in the zodiac, and many Pisces much prefer to be around the water. It is common to find people with this sign in jobs involving water, whether as bartenders or working in the soft drink manufacturing business. They are self-sacrificing and kind and enjoy another’s input. A Pisces will listen and often heed good advice. They love and need to express themselves in their chosen career, whether it be in the arts, drama, music or elsewhere. Pisces signs can be surprisingly successful in any career that allows the Pisces self-expression.
Pisces women are especially sensitive. They tend to favor soft clothing in jewel colors such as teal and jade. They are not aggressive and find it hard to say no to anyone.

Men born under the sign of Pisces are no less idealistic in love and romance. They are often quite popular with the opposite sex because most Pisces men are both perceptive and intuitive. They tend not to show off but will hide their feelings if they get hurt. Both sexes will withdraw from the world for a short time when a relationship goes bad, give themselves a self pep talk, then go back into action.
Pisces are very compatible with Cancer and Scorpio, as the holders of the water signs all tend to have compassion in common.
