Pisces or Meena is the twelfth sign of the Zodiac. It is indicated by a pair of fish swimming in opposite directions. The symbol of Pisces is indicated by two fish joined together by a cord. In heavens it starts from 330 degrees and extends up to 359 degrees. The Sun stays in Pisces from 15th March to 13th April as per sidereal zodiac which is followed by Vedic Astrologers and from 20th February to 20th March as per Tropical Zodiac followed by Western Astrologers. The entry and exit dates of the Sun for any particular zodiac sign dose vary by one day during some years.
Pisces is ruled by the planet Jupiter and Neptune (as per modern western astrology), it is mutable, watery, feminine sign, governs feet, toes, lymph glands and the twelfth house of the horoscope. Its characteristics are the need for complete transcendence of material, strong idealism, impracticality, psychic depth, spirituality, empathy, and self-sacrifice. It symbolizes ultimate ending of self-confinement to material and personal, merging with absolute, sea, ocean and the subconscious.
Pisces people are creative, self-sufficient people. They have a natural ability for understanding complex material, but this is accomplished by "absorbing" the knowledge rather than studying it. Their minds are extremely active, due to their strong imagination. They sense and feel things that others are not aware of. This trait makes it very difficult for people to lie to them, for they intuitively know when they are being deceived. Pisceans are congenial, adaptable, and versatile people, but they do not have strong willpowers or a dynamic approach to life. This insecurity causes them to seek reassurance from others. Pisces are sensitive, sympathetic, usually gentle, with an inborn reluctance to hurt others or to face any sort of confrontations. Because of this, they can become involved in very difficult emotional situations which they find extremely difficult to break. They intuitively know they are being used, but seem unable to get themselves out of their predicament. This difficulty stems from the fact that Pisceans think with their heart rather than their head, so are easily "used" by others. They are very sympathetic toward the helpless or downtrodden. Their inborn desire to escape from physical living can be used constructively through creativity. If in trouble, they may attempt to rationalize their way out, rather than face the consequences of their behavior. They are generous with their time in helping other people. But, unless they are evolved, they will expect something in return. They always feel their best when they are serving others in some capacity. By using their compassion outwardly for others, they will not become moody and introverted. Their greatest need is to learn to understand their emotional ups and downs. The higher aspect would see them rising to great heights of self-denial and attainment.
Pisces like all other zodiac signs contains three Nakshatra or lunar mansion, which are one third of the Purva Bhadra Nakshatra, entire Uttara Bhadra Nakshatra and entire Revati Nakshatra.

If a person is born between 15th March to 24th March, the Sun remains in the 1st Decan of Pisces ruled by Jupiter. This denotes a restless, impressionable and mediumistic disposition. There is some impelling force pushing him toward good or ill unconsciously. He is kind, and just and sentimental. He rarely understands himself or his emotions. He is inclined to be secretive, is receptive and often inspired. If a person is born between 25th March to 3rd April, the Sun remains in the 2nd Decan of Pisces ruled by Moon. It awakens all the latent sensitiveness of the sign Pisces. It also provides a keen internal aspiration to become a channel through which the forces of good may flow. This position provides the native more persistency and the ability to utilize the virtues of Pisces without all it's vices. If a person is born between 4th April to 13th April, the Sun remains in the 3rd Decan of Pisces ruled by Mars. The third Decan of Pisces ascending encourages the weaker side of the sign. It intensifies the selfish and jealous tendencies. Conventionality and the material side of life are cultivated. The native must carefully control these preferences or his life will be an unhappy one.
Pisces may seem to be wandering about in their own little world sometimes, but Pisces is one of the most caring friend. Pisces has emotions to spare, so prepare yourself for long evenings of heart-to-heart talks with your Pisces friend. This friend will truly want to know the real you. They are a great friend when you are in need. Watch out, though, as Pisces can be easily manipulated, and their feelings can be hurt by the misguided comment from a friend. What they need is for you, as their friend, to reassure them and help them past their insecurities. They will always be open with their emotions, so the biggest favor you can do for them is return that trust by revealing yourself. You will never be bored with your creative Pisces buddy if you just keep an open mind and let them whisk you away into their world for a while.
The magical mystery of romance with Pisces can be most unpredictable, with hearts and flowers one day and games with veils the next. Either way, they will definitely serve their lover, for this is something which brings them great joy. Pisces exhibit an easygoing, go-with-the-flow quality, which is a boon to relationships. As with so much of Pisces' life, if love can be a dreamy state of fantasies and play, a magical tour of mind, body and soul, all the better. These spiritual folk like to combine the real and surreal, so that love with the Pisces becomes a creative hyper-state where almost anything is possible. There is a quality to the Pisces that makes them almost magnetic in love. Pisces can love completely, for this sacred state is about the best that life on Earth can bring. When it's right, Love is likely to transcend all limits and reach a brave new world. A lover who can protect them and make them feel safe is ideal. Giving is also paramount wiht Pisces, yet sometimes they risk of giving too much. The ideal Pisces soul mate is more grounded than they are but still loves to play.
The Pisces children need a lot of attention and security because of their troubled emotions. They are usually good students at school, although they dislike learning facts, except in history. Pisces prefer subjects which stimulate their imagination. They are not particularly fond of active sports. Pisces child's natural inclination is toward music, painting, dancing etc. If they are constantly changing their minds about their goals, they should be assisted by their parents in learning the necessity of completing projects once they have been started. Above all, give your Pisces child lot of encouragement and praise for their efforts.
Piscean parents will expose their children to cultural and art forms at an early age. They make warm, loving parents, but find it difficult to discipline their children. It is most unusual for Piscean parents to physically hit their child. They may, occasionally, snap at them, but will soon explain to the child that they were in a bad mood. These parents must be made to realize that their over permissiveness will, in the long run, be detrimental to the child. By understanding this, they can correct this problem and be of considerable benefit to their children during their formative years.
