Pisces is the 12th and the last Sign of the Zodiac, and so it takes in all the different attributes of all the 11 Signs before it. Pisces is the happiest among all, as it takes in many of the characteristics under its belt. Pisces are truly selfless, they help others without hoping to get anything back. Pisces are spiritual, and extremely focused on their inner journey for finding peace and harmony.
Pisces effortlessly rides with the flow and do not produce waves. Pisces is represented by a pair of fish. Fish is extremely glad to be regarded as fuzzy, as there’s a definite feeling of security in that self-proclaimed underworld. However, they will not stay hidden for long, as one of their main goals is to help others.
Pisces are charitable, compassionate and will promptly place the needs of others before their own. It’s this type of self-sacrifice, which enables Pisces-born to move on. In love and relationship, Pisces-born are extremely faithful, loving and caring of their mates. Pisces respect and admire their life partner and support them in every respect. Pisces are never judgemental and always forgiving. Pisces-born are the most tolerant and kind compared to all other Zodiac Signs. Pisces love their children very much, and so they encourage and fully support them in every stage of their lives.
Pisces the Seeker
The willingness of personal sacrifice is one of the major Pisces horoscope characteristics. Therefore, Pisces tends to be taken advantage of, more than once. It’s a follower, as is every mutable sign in the horoscope, and it’s very sensitive. But those are not weaknesses. The Pisces Zodiac sign is indifferent to privileges and benefits, because there are other things so much more important. It’s a choice, although others often don’t see that.
The archetype of the Pisces Zodiac sign in the horoscope is the martyr, who is prepared to die, even when that’s an injustice, for a higher cause. The most prominent of martyrs has for almost two thousand years been Jesus, who was crucified by an oppressive society wanting to stop his preaching.
Jesus, through the religion of Christianity, is also the one whose influence has been of the most vast importance for the last two thousand years, at least in Europe and the Western world. We’re living in the Age of Pisces, an era dominated by the perspective of religion and the Pisces horoscope characteristics, which are praised as the most noble ones. It started around the time of the birth of Jesus, and will continue for something like 150 years, when it is followed by the Age of Aquarius.
So, Pisces may be the horoscope sign of self-sacrifice, but for the last two thousand years, this has been the highest virtue. Society has been one of the Pisces horoscope virtues (at least as the outspoken ideal), and still is.
