Pisces have a reputation for being really emotional… but is that true? Pisceans are ruled by Neptune and it’s a mutable sign, and you’re about to find out what that means. You’ve heard of the elements, and each sign fits into a group ruled by one of the elements… is Pisces a water sign? Express.co.uk explains everything you need to know about Pisces.
When are Pisces born?
Pisceans are born between March 12 to April 18.
If your star sign – also known as your sun sign – is Pisces, astrologers say the sun was in Pisces when you were born.
In astrology, the zodiac is split into twelve sections named after the constellations in the sky.
The sun doesn’t actually move, but it appears to circle around the sky moving through the different sections.
The sun moves through every single sign once in a year, and that’s where we get the different star sign seasons from.
During Pisces season, the Sun is travelling through Pisces.
Pisces is depicted by fish, and astrologer Sue Tompkins suggests this links the sign to Christianity. The fish is used as a motif throughout the Bible.
Pisces, like Jesus in the Bible, associates with all kinds of people no matter how educated, wealthy, or healthy they are.
Pisces is only concerned with an individual’s spirit and who they are deep down – they are easily the most compassionate sign in the zodiac.
This sign is loving, kind, and sows humility to everyone they meet.
The downside of this is that they can be easily influenced and quite naive.
Pisces is selfless, adapting themselves to benefit others.
They want to help people and will do whatever they can to make a difference.
However, this gives them a weak sense of self.
Pisces needs to learn to put themselves first when they need to, otherwise they will be taken advantage of.
Even though Pisces is very loving, they find it difficult to commit. This could be in relationships, in jobs, or in their movement.
Whatever it is, Pisces hates feeling stuck, held back, or pinned down. Like a fish, Pisces likes to move freely and aimlessly.
In some Pisces, this turns into laziness or lack of ambition. In others, it gives them a dreamy and wandering quality.
Pisces is very creative and may be drawn towards any disorganised performance or art.
You’ll find a Pisces writing long-form poetry, practising contemporary dance, or painting in watercolours on their easel. Anything that lets Pisces express themselves is a bonus for them.

Ruled by Neptune
Pisces is ruled by Neptune, the God of the Seas in Roman mythology.
This ties Pisces again to creativity, dreaming, imagination, and spirituality.
Neptune’s influence makes Pisceans quite unrealistic, as they LOVE to fantasize.
This also gives Pisces their empathetic side.
Pisces is a mutable sign, along with Gemini, Virgo and Sagittarius.
These signs occur at the end of the seasons, and this makes them quite restless people.
Mutable signs are free spirits who hate being tied down or bound to goals.
They don’t care about status or power, they just want to be free to live their lives how they want.
