"A cord joins the tails of Pisces, the two fishes," from Atlas Coelestis.


While the astrological sign Pisces per definition runs from ecliptic longitude 330° to 0°,this position is now mostly covered by the constellation of Aquarius due to the precession from when the constellation and the sign coincided. Today, the First Point of Aries, or the vernal equinox, is in the Pisces constellation. There are no prominent stars in the constellation, with the brightest stars being of only fourth magnitude. One star in the constellation, Alpha Piscium, is also known as Alrescha, which comes from the Arabic الرشآء al-rišā’, meaning "the well rope," or "the cord."The constellation, however, is different from the astronomical location in where the sign occupies space. The constellations in earlier times were primarily used as markers to help determine what influence was in the sky. Nevertheless, the sign of Pisces remain in the 30 degree span of 330°-0°


Ptolemy described Alpha Piscium as the point where the cords joining the two fish are knotted together. The astrological symbol shows the two fishes captured by a string, typically by the mouth or the tails. The fish are usually portrayed swimming in opposite directions; this represents the duality within the Piscean nature. They are ruled by the planet Neptune. Although they appear as a pair, the name of the sign in all languages originally referred to only one fish with the exception of Greek, Romanian, Bulgarian, Dutch, Hungarian, Latvian and Italian. Pisces are the mutable water sign of the zodiac.


Mythology


Divine associations with Pisces include Poseidon/Neptune, Aphrodite, Eros, Typhon, Vishnu[19] and the Sumerian goddess Inanna.


In early mythology


"Pisces" is the Latin word for "Fishes." It is one of the earliest zodiac signs on record, with the two fish appearing as far back as c. 2300 BC on an Egyptian coffin lid.


According to one Greek myth, Pisces represents the fish, sometimes represented by a shark, into which Aphrodite (also considered Venus) and her son Eros (also considered Cupid) transformed in order to escape the monster Typhon. Typhon, the "father of all monsters," had been sent by Gaia to attack the gods, which led Pan to warn the others before himself changing into a goat-fish and jumping into the Euphrates. A similar myth, one in which the fish "Pisces" carry Aphrodite and her son out of danger, is resounded in Manilius' five volume poetic work Astronomica: "Venus ow'd her safety to their Shape." Another myth is that an egg fell into the Euphrates river. It was then rolled to the shore by fish. Doves sat on the egg until it hatched, out from which came Aphrodite. As a sign of gratitude towards the fish, Aphrodite put the fish into the night sky.[10] Because of these myths, the Pisces constellation was also known as "Venus et Cupido," "Venus Syria cum Cupidine," "Venus cum Adone," "Dione" and "Veneris Mater," the latter being the formal Latin term for mother.


The Greek myth on the origin of the sign of Pisces has been cited by English astrologer Richard James Morrison as an example of the fables that arose from the original astrological doctrine, and that the "original intent of [it] was afterwards corrupted both by poets and priests."


In modern mythology and religion


Purim, a Jewish holiday, falls at the full moon preceding the Passover, which was set by the full moon in Aries, which follows Pisces. The story of the birth of Christ is said to be a result of the spring equinox entering into the Pisces, as the Savior of the World appeared as the Fisher of Men. This parallels the entering into the Age of Pisces.


Astrological age

An astrological age is a time period in astrology that parallels major changes in the development of Earth's inhabitants, particularly relating to culture, society and politics, and there are twelve astrological ages corresponding to the twelve zodiacal signs. Astrological ages occur because of a phenomenon known as the precession of the equinoxes, and one complete period of this precession is called a Great Year or Platonic Year of about 25,920 years.


The age of Pisces began c. AD 1 and will end c. AD 2150.[b] With the story of the birth of Christ coinciding with this date,[27] many Christian symbols for Christ use the astrological symbol for Pisces, the fishes.The figure Christ himself bears many of the temperaments and personality traits of a Pisces, and is thus considered an archetype of the Piscean. Moreover, the twelve apostles were called the "fishers of men," early Christians called themselves "little fishes," and a code word for Jesus was the Greek word for fish, "Ikhthus."With this, the start of the age, or the "Great Month of Pisces," is regarded as the beginning of the Christian religion. Saint Peter is recognized as the apostle of the Piscean sign.

Using the calm for waters, while their fires


Throb out quick rhythms along the shallow air.


— Elizabeth Barrett Browning, A Drama of Exile

The General Feel

In lives of Pisces, 2021 is something like a teaser for 2022 and for what can be expected in the future. A lot of promise is hidden behind hard work and structures, norms, and systems that you have respected so far. Not only is your Sun\'s alternate ruler Jupiter moving to the sign of Neptune\'s exaltation, but it will also reach the sign of Pisces in May and stay there until the end of July. The inner voice is calling, the sense of mission is in place, but time is still necessary to set free from ties of the past and emotions left by trauma or dark places in your world.


Separations of all sorts are to be expected, especially in the first couple of months of the year, but things are easier now that you remember there is a sense of purpose to rely on. This is a year when prosperity comes from the support of others, your ancestors, people from the shadows and those who never reveal their identity. The image could remain unclear and idealism is possible as well as ideas that take you away from reality and into alternate worlds that spin out of control. Pay special attention to your body, grounding, and the food you take in, so you can stay in touch with things that are controllable and enjoyable on the material plane.


The Greatest Challenges

The end of summer brings in disappointments and a lot of stress over relationships that turn sour. This is a time when high ground won’t solve the issue, and what you truly need is order and the ability to see the balance that is already established, as it is. Realistic views are tested throughout autumn months up until December, making your mind intensely active and distancing you from your true abilities and the real world. Keep your feet on the ground, care for the financial security, and stay firm in structures that bring a sense of peace if existential fears kick in along the way.


The Greatest Rewards

Beneficent energies are shining upon you however stressful outer circumstances may become. It is the right time to release past trauma, deal with matters that led to deep disappointment and negative beliefs and focus on talents that allow you to blossom. Although times will not be easy and expectations of the world are still a lot to bear, you will swim through any ordeal ready to resolve the emotional setting that led you here in the first place.


Physiology and Body

Pay attention to the overall balance of the blood, take iron rich vegetables and spend enough time in touch with nature to boost the oxygen supply. You need deep forests, deep breathing, time spent away from large cities and large groups of people. Stay away from medicaments that are not well-researched, as well as alternative solutions that are shady and might bring out things that you are not yet ready to commit to. What is not addressed and seen with all its emotional messages will grow, and this could help spread conditions that have a psychosomatic foundation if you don’t pay attention to them. Stay balanced, drink a lot of water, and use deep energetic work to reach the core of any issue that may arise.


Love and Family

This is a time for healing that will require a lot of tenderness, close contacts, understanding and solitude. Family matters could stress you out if people around you are too loud or intense in their struggles, and some boundaries will need to be set to preserve your own peace of mind. Give a helping hand but do not force yourself to give what you don’t have enough of yourself. Take care of your own needs before attending to someone else\'s and stay aware of the line of responsibility that should be respected in any system you belong to.


Romance and love could blossom, but only if there is undisputable equality between you and the other person. Balance is the basis for anything healthy and supported at this time, and balance will be hard to maintain, especially once the summer ends and struggles arise in close bonds. Stay in touch, listen closely, and try not to get too excited about the person standing in front of you. They are only human, just as you are, and doors between you must open simultaneously for the energies to flow both ways.


Work and Finances

The end of spring and summer months may bring instant prosperity, but overspending could become a serious issue if you are not careful. Think about the future and plan ahead. Holding on to short-term solutions and parttime risks and investments is not your best option. You need structure, insurance, papers to be signed and sealed instead of letting information float in the air. This is also an excellent time for professional growth, learning, new courses and exams, as well as mastering foreign languages to meet the standards of the market you work in. Think outside the box and don’t be afraid to implement modern solutions while keeping your expectations low and your foundation firm..
