Neptune is the God of the Sea. According to the Ancient Greeks, the symbol for Neptune is two fishes, Aphrodite and her son Eros. They lept into the sea to avoid Typhon, hence why they are seen intertwined. With this symbol and history, Pisces live in two worlds: reality and dream. It is in a Pisces nature to run away from monsters or conflict, though they also possess the ability to change to avoid being hurt. Also like a fish, Pisces can get entangled in a net of problems.
Day to Day
Pisces are the old soul of the zodiac and are ruled by the subconscious.This is an extremely compassionate sign that is always full of emotions. They have an almost psychic ability and their gut feelings are almost always right. This fish struggles, however, with actually following their gut all the time. This is a sign that absorbs and reflects the feelings of everyone they come in contact with. They have an inability to reject others because they do not want to hurt feelings. In fact, helping others makes them feel good. For the Pisces though, this can be their undoing as with these traits comes a gullible and addictive personality.
Pisces is governed by duality, the struggle of the spiritual soul with the physical body. This sign has an eternal struggle to use power for positive, as they always have an inner conflict between their emotions. This allows them to be deeply creative and artistic. It also means this fish is the most impressionable of the signs. This enables them to adapt well, as they are gentle, patient, and learn from absorption.

Pisces likes adventures and new situations, as well as social events. They are often molded by their surroundings due to their sensitive and intuitive natures.

Pisces often live in their own dream world, and struggle to make sense of the real one. This dreamer behavior results in spaciness, forgetfulness, and lack of follow through. For this reason, if they need to complete a project, they will need support. They will spend more time imagining what could happen, with an unending eternal optimism. This means that when a situation they have imagined actually comes to pass it is inevitably not the way they pictured it and Pisces will find themselves drowning in disillusionment and confusion. Pisces must be careful, their emotions can easily become their downfall. They must take care to work at living in the world.
