Dr. Shanker Adawal


Pisces described: The sign Pisces has the appearance of a pair of fish, one tailed with the head of the other and is strong in day. Its element is water and it is Satwaguna and healthy. It glides in water and its Varna (race) in Brahmin. It is footless, has medium sized body, resides in the northern direction and rises with both head and back. Its Lord is Jupiter, the teacher of Gods. It is in this way that the 12 signs each having 30o have been described to assess gross and specific effects.

Pisces is ruled by the planet Jupiter, now a days Neptune also, and its symbol is two fish bound together. Pisces is a water sign, emotional and compassionate.

Just like Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and represents beginnings, Pisces is the twelfth and last sign, and represents eternity, reincarnation, and spiritual rebirth. Pisces native are said to have deep intuitions into the human psyche. They have a sensitivity to their surroundings unmatched in the zodiac and are therefore highly spiritual beings. Since they are ruled by Neptune, the planet of illusion and mystery, their personality is elusive and even harder to define.

Pisces native are symbolized by the two fish, one swimming upstream and the other downstream. This a good representation of the Piscean personality-one of duality and indecision. Indeed many Pisces native have trouble defining themselves against their environments. Instead they use their powers of perception to blend into their surroundings like chameleons. They are quick to avoid a fight and are usually taken advantage of for this reason.

Their charm, humour, and sympathy open the doors for Pisceans. They are gentle and kind, but often tend to suffer from extreme mood swings that typify their dual nature. This moodiness can be irritating to others who can’t relate to their sensitivity. Inner conflicts, negativity, carelessness, jealousy, and emotional confusion are all traits that afflict those born under this sign.

However, Pisces native harbor an inner confidence that allows them to preserve. Pisces native enjoy retreating to a dream world where they can make the rules. Often the result is uninhibited creativity and intense imagination. Indeed, many of the world’s finest poets, writers, artists, and dancers have been Pisceans. If they can temper their fatalistic moods, Pisces native can be great assets as friends. They are blind to outward appearances and can often lead their partners to new levels of perception.
