Pisces is the twelfth sign of the zodiac and is symbolised by the Fishes (two of them). They are one of the three Water signs, the others being Cancer and Scorpio. The two fishes in the sign of Pisces swim (or point) in two different directions which symbolises the struggle going on within the heart and soul of Pisces. Others say that the fishes of Pisces are swimming in a circle bringing about the idea of a cycle of rebirth or renewed growth. The sign of Pisces is also associated with ideas of eternity and the never ending nature of the universe. Just like Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio and Capricorn, we find that Pisces is negative in polarity meaning that they prefer to be self-reliant rather than look outside for help and co-operation.
Neptune, the ruling planet of Pisces, is defined as being mysterious, dreamlike, spiritual and otherworldly. This is reflected in the Pisces character.
