Terrified by the giant Typhon, Venus and Cupid hurled themselves in to the Euphrates and became fishes. Minerva commemorated the event by placing the fishes in the sky. The Babylonians knew the constellation as KUN, or the Tails; it was also known as the Leash - upon which were tied the two fish-goddesses Anunitum and Simmah.
Belonging to the mutable group and the water element Pisceans are the melting pot of the zodiac, where we find talkative, open and sensitive souls who appreciate things like when you do the dishes. Ruled by the planet Neptune. Like the fish, you can swim in any direction, but sometimes may feel at the mercy of the currents of life. Often confused about which direction to take the result is either sacrifice, faith and love on the one hand or disorientation, self-pity and doubt on the other. Kind and gentle to anyone in trouble you also stir sympathy in others by your helpless attitude when confusion is the uppermost state of mind. You can learn a lot through flashes of insight that you can't explain and you are adept at picking up moods through your skin. You are one of the best listeners in the world and have to guard against taking the problems of the world on your shoulder. You are so romantic you can see beauty in everything, even in rubbish.
Romantic Pisces, you are the
twelfth and last sign of the zodiac. You are regarded as the sign of sensitivity
and receptivity, and are a true chameleon by being mutable and infinitely
complex. Your keywords are communion and vision, and you have the capacity to go
beyond this world to the one of dreams and the spirit. Your ruler Neptune, the
planet of confusion and chaos, gets people out of habits that imprison them so
that they question themselves and can discover another path toward growth and
spirituality. Neptune is also the planet of imagination and illusion, and
governs the dream world with all its many facets. Pisces is the third of the
three water signs, which means that you are concerned with the realm of emotion
and feeling. You deal with sensitivity, intuition, and deeper psychic aspects of
life. You are able to conduct unconscious telepathic communication with others.

Pisces Rising gives a flexible
personality, with which you can easily hide your own traits and take on the
characteristics of others. Despite your pleasant disposition and willingness to
adapt to changing circumstance and the demands of other people, you can be
surprisingly strong and determined. The strength of your character, however, is
also determined by other important factors in your background.
Your Pisces child is
affectionate, sympathetic, loyal, idealistic, kind, and forgiving. The Pisces
child is the mystic, the seeker after hidden truths. Pisces is considered a dual
sign: one fish battling odds and swimming upstream, and the other fish drifting
along with the current. Pisces children love peace and strongly dislike an
inharmonious atmosphere filled with discordant voices. This child is sincere and
truthful. The Pisces child often devotes his or her life to the cause of truth
and justice. March children should cultivate the spiritual part of their nature.
They must be taught to search for facts and come to conclusions-to learn to
trust their instincts and premonitions.This sign claims writers, poets,
idealists, religious leaders, doctors, nurses and lawyers, all with the divine
motivation of helping humanity as their objective. The Pisces sign is most
compatible with Cancer and Scorpio.
If there's someone who likes
being the center of attention, it's a Pisces. And why not? Those born under this
Sign are giving, proud, energetic, confident -- the world can't help but look!
That is as it should be, says the Lion. They're firebrands with plenty of
smolder in their eyes and a golden glow all around. Piscess are focused in their
work and make excellent team leaders. The Lion is also a risk-taker, someone who
wants the world (for starters) and often gets it.
All kinds of jobs in film,
theater, TV, radio, ballet, music, and art will attract Pisces, who is often a
good actor. A job that allows travel will be attractive. Advertising, public
relations, and any job that is part of the service industry. Helping people to
solve their problems and charitable and church work will also be very attractive
Piscess are also well suited as managers, architects, inventors, teachers, athletes and
Presidents. Typical Pisces is often associated with leadership, promotion and
sales, any job which has a special title, acting, directing, teaching, politics,
public relations, management, the law, or a self-employed skill or business.

Pisces as Employer
Pisces as Employee
A typical Pisces employee (male or female):
The workplace of a typical Pisces man or woman:
and intuitive, you really need to be needed. Fantasy prone and alive in the
world of your vivid imagination, you nevertheless suffer from fear of rejection
and low self-esteem (although you hide this well in your efforts to create the
ideal, loving environment for your loved ones). You seek a sensitive, soulful
friend, but can be dazzled by appearances which scramble your naturally powerful
radar and send you into a tailspin.
Pisces and Sex
When a typical Pisces makes
love it is an act of romance rather than of carnal pleasure. Typical Pisces is
less interested in sexual activity than in the expressions of love that come
before and afterward. Piscean energy is more often used up in the emotional
experiences of love than in the sexual act. This does not mean that Pisces in
not interested, indeed he or she may seek several partners, but this is for
reassurance rather than personal pleasure. Pisces can be the least prejudiced
and most compassionate of all the zodiac signs. Pisces will show a deep and real
love for a partner who has problems or physical abnormalities, or has to face a
tragedy or business disaster. Sex will be one of the expressions of love given
by a caring and devoted Piscean spouse.
The person who contemplates
becoming the marriage or business partner of a typical Pisces must realize that
Pisces will expect to be supported -- emotionally or financially. Given this,
the person who partners Pisces can expect loyalty and sensitive understanding.
Pisces Man As A Partner
He will want a partner who
will work for him: someone to run the household efficiently and who will
entertain his friends and business colleagues. In return, the married Pisces
will bring great joy to the household with his wonderful imagination. Marriage
gives male Pisces more self-assurance, so he will become more decisive.
Potential business partners should be prepared to undertake the practical,
administrative side of the business, leaving the Piscean partner free to
exercise their creativity and understanding.
She will want a marriage
partner who will support her in every respect. To many men, Pisces is the
perfectly feminine woman. She may appear to be a helpless, fluffy person but,
once married, she will feel secure, and her reserve of talents and abilities
will pour out in every direction. In business, a Pisces woman will be best in
creative positions and in public relations, but should not be expected to do the
routine office jobs.
Virgo is the complementary
opposite sign to Pisces. While Pisces adapts himself or herself to the emotional
needs of others, Virgo works hard to serve others by responding to the needs of
the moment with practical solutions. From Virgo, Pisces can learn how to
translate Piscean sensitivity and understanding into practical action -- thus
dispelling self-doubt and building confidence in his or her Piscean abilities.
In general, Pisces likes a friend who is useful and reassuring. In return, they
will give unprejudiced understanding and loyalty to their friends. Pisces are
emotionally attached to their friends and will rarely take notice if the friend
is taking advantage of this involvement. Pisces are friendly, humorous, and
caring friends, even if there are long periods of time between meetings. Pisces
will always think up something interesting to do and will enjoy any kind of
Pisces are most compatible with Scopio and Cancer signs.
Steve Irwin was the enthusiastic host of the TV wildlife show The Crocodile Hunter until he was killed by a stingray in 2006. Irwin's on-screen antics with dangerous animals, and his Australian-accented cries of "Crikey!", made him an international celebrity and spawned television specials, board games, action figures and a feature film, The Crocodile Hunter: Collision Course (2002). Irwin grew up around wildlife at his parents' reptile park in Queensland, Australia. An experienced trapper of crocodiles, he took over direction of the park in 1991 and renamed it the Australia Zoo. In 1992 he married Terri Raines, a cougar wrangler from the United States. The pair created The Crocodile Hunter TV show in 1992 and it became a hit on American cable television. Irwin and his wife were soon regulars on televisions worldwide, hosting shows that blended their personal lives with wildlife education. Irwin's shows included Croc Files (2000), The Crocodile Hunter Diaries (2002), Confessions of the Crocodile Hunter (2004), and New Breed Vets (2006). On 4 September 2006 he was killed by a stingray barb to the chest while swimming with a cameraman near Port Douglas, Australia, where he was filming a documentary titled Ocean's Deadliest.
Welsh soprano Charlotte Church got
her start as a classical singer whose pop-audience appeal made her a millionaire
by the time she was 14 years old. Church was signed to a record deal at age 12,
after being noticed during an impromptu performance on a local TV talent show.
Her debut album, The Voice Of An Angel, was released in 1998 and became a hit on
the classical charts. Church then released albums (including 1999's Charlotte
Church and 2001's Enchantment), performed internationally and made numerous
appearances on television, both in the United Kingdom and the United States.
Although known primarily as an opera singer, she also sang songs from Broadway
musicals and other popular tunes. One of her best-known songs is "Just Wave
Hello," a hit single that was from a television commercial for the Ford Motor
Company. As Church emerged from her young teen years, she recorded the pop album
Tissues and Issues (2005), and her new all-grown-up persona -- liquor, tobacco
and profanity -- made her a favorite of the gossip sheets. By 2007 she was into
the second season of BBC variety show (The Charlotte Church Show) and expecting
her first child with Welsh rugby player Gavin Henson.
Nicolas Copernicus was born into a
well-to-do family, and after his father died in 1483 he was put under the
guardianship of his uncle, a bishop of Warmia (Poland). He went to university in
Krakow and spent a decade in Italy, studying law and mathematics. A canon of the
cathedral at Frombork, Copernicus carried out administrative duties and, from
his house, observed the stars and planets. For years he worked on his theory
that the planets in our solar system revolved around the sun (Ptolemy of ancient
Greece had explained that the universe was a closed system revolving around the
earth, and the Catholic church concurred). Hesitant to publish his work for fear
of being charged with heresy, Copernicus summarized it in 1530 and circulated it
among Europe's scholars, where it was greeted with enthusiasm. His work, titled
De revolutionibus orbium coelestium was finally published in 1543, apparently
just a few weeks before he died.
Amy Tan is a Chinese-American author
from San Francisco who wrote the 1989 best-seller The Joy Luck Club. The
daughter of immigrants, Tan spent most of her childhood in central California.
In the late 1960s her father and one of her two brothers died of brain tumors
and Tan's mother moved the family to Europe. After finishing high school in
Switzerland in 1969, Tan returned to the United States and eventually ended up
in California again, where she studied literature and linguistics at San Jose
State University and earned a masters degree in 1973. She worked as a business
writer and then began publishing short stories in 1986. The Joy Luck Club
recounted the family tales of four modern Chinese-American women; it was widely
hailed for its depiction of the Chinese-American experience of the late 20th
century. Tan's other books have also fared well, including two children's books
and a non-fiction collection, The Opposite of Fate: A Book of Musings (2003).
Her novels include The Kitchen God's Wife (1991), The Hundred Secret Senses
(1995) and Saving Fish From Drowning (2005).
One of the first female stars of
hip-hop, Queen Latifah's first album, All Hail the Queen (1989), proved that
there was room for feminism in rap. After establishing herself as a rapper, she
moved into acting, appearing in a small role in Spike Lee's movie Jungle Fever
(1991, starring Wesley Snipes), and more significant roles in Set it Off (1996)
and Living Out Loud (1998). She also became a television star during the 1990s,
first in the sitcom Living Single (1993), then as the host of her own talk show
(1999). And through it all, Queen Latifah was still making records and winning
Grammys. In 2003 she co-starred with Steve Martin in the feature film Bringing
Down the House and she was nominated for an Oscar for her performance in Chicago
(2002, starring Renee Zellweger). Her other films include Barbershop 2: Back in
Business (2004, with Ice Cube), Beauty Shop (2005, with Alicia Silverstone) and
Last Holiday (2006, with Alicia Witt). Her albums include Nature of a Sista
(1991), Black Reign (1994) and Order in the Court, and her songs include "Ladies
First" and "U.N.I.T.Y."
