Pisces (February 19 to March 20) is the twelfth and last sign of the zodiac, falling immediately before the vernal equinox (before spring). Its symbolic sign is almost like a right parentheses and then a left, connected in the middle by a dash that runs across their middles. One of the water signs, it is depicted traditionally as a pair of fish, back to back and joined at their mouths by a sort of umbilical cord. This type of symbol translates to becoming a part of the greater whole, the ocean of humanity. Persons born during the interval while Pisces reigns are said to encompass the positive traits of being intuitive and spiritual and the negative traits of being vague and secretive.
