Pisces Dates: The Sun is in Pisces each year from approximately February 19 to March 20. This is in the Tropical Zodiac.
Note: Why do different books and sites have slightly different date ranges for Sun signs? This is because these dates are approximate. The precise date and time Pisces starts and ends varies slightly from year to year. As such, if you were born on or close to the beginning and ending dates, you will need a Sun Sign Calculator to be certain of the sign.
The flowers associated with the sign of Pisces are the water lily, violet, and orchid.
The planetary rulers of Pisces are Neptune (modern ruler, depicted above) and Jupiter (traditional ruler).
Neptune is God of the Sea and is considered a planet of inspiration, dreams, psychic receptivity, and illusion.
Jupiter symbolizes reach, possibility, and broader purpose.
The crescent, representing receptivity, is pointing upwards, indicating spiritual receptivity, and is placed above the cross of matter. This symbolizes the yearning of the soul to break free from the restrictions and limitations of matter/reality.

Pisces’ modality is MUTABLE. There are four mutable signs: Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces.
Mutable signs are flexible, adaptable, and changeable. Although they can be inconsistent and lack follow-through, they are ready to make small changes and adjustments to accommodate others.
While signs share a modality and an element with other signs, no sign shares both. In other words, Pisces is part of the Water family and the Mutable family of signs, but no other sign besides Pisces is a Water Mutable sign. This combination suggests an emotional, adaptive, and perceptive personality.
The symbol for Pisces is the Fish. There are two fish that comprise Pisces’ symbol, and they’re swimming in opposite directions, symbolizing the duality of the sign as well as its depth.

Gems associated with Pisces include the amethyst (depicted above) as it augments spirituality, the aquamarine as it enhances psychic tendencies, jade, and lapis lazuli.
