Basic Traits

Pisces is a mutable, water sign, ruled by Neptune, and recognized as the mystic of the zodiac. Pisces has a venus and jupiter exaltation meaning that it both wants to create bonds through love (venus) while also seeking consistent expansion. Making them especially equipped to build fruitful and emotional connections wherever they go. Pisces are known as the pacifists of the zodiac. Under a colonial state sometimes pacifism is viewed as a negative trait however it is also a sign of intense compassion, love for community care, and a passion for healing. Which are all essential characteristics in performing racial justice work. Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac and is often recognized as the zodiacs youngest sibling because of their youthful, dreamlike, flexible, and nurturing behavior. As a mutable water sign they float through life in an other worldly way that others are often inspired by. Pisces are oriented towards beauty, admiring the beautiful parts of themselves, their community, the entirety of humanity, the earth, and beyond. They are an especially spiritual sign who can encourage us to think about our existence in its most soulful, and intangible sense. I think that a Pisces is especially equipped to facilitate the conversation around imagining the world that we want to live in. A Pisces must be wary of their discomfort around the practical things in life, and their tendency to self victimize and romanticize martyrdom – especially in racial justice work in which there is action to be done and a community that needs care.
