Sun in Pisces

When someone asks what your star sign is, they are really asking about your Sun sign. Even those not interested in astrology will usually know their Sun (star) sign. As the Sun stays in a zodiac sign for about 30 days it easy for people to know this as general information.

The Sun is associated with ourselves. It is associated with our soul, our spirit and our very core or essence. Some have described the Sun sign as being the hero image, or us at our essential best. The interaction (called aspects) that your Sun has with other planets in your natal chart will modify this to a certain extent.

In tropical astrology (which a lot of western astrology is) the zodiac signs are not configured to the constellations anymore but to the change of seasons.

Pisces is a mutable water sign ruled by Jupiter in traditional astrology and Neptune in modern astrology. As a mutable sign, Pisces is adaptable and able to roll with the punches that life throws at us all. As a water sign, Pisces is in touch with their emotions, compassionate and sensitive.

Neptune which is the modern ruler of Pisces is a planet that is known for its slippery nature, which makes it fitting that it rules the sign of the fish. Neptune is covered in clouds that can obscure the planet, and likewise, with Neptune, there can sometimes be a blurring of the boundaries or an inability to see everything. There is a glamour to Neptune that many Pisces embody, and they may seem a little hard to pin down at times. They can be idealistic, mystical, spiritual and altruistic.

Jupiter is the traditional ruler of Pisces, with Jupiter also ruling Sagittarius. Jupiter is a planet associated with generosity, expansion, knowledge, and belief systems. Both Sagittarius and Pisces are mutable signs, but Sagittarius is a fire sign while Pisces is a water sign. Where Sagittarius is impulsive and passionate, Pisces is more serene, receptive and impressionable.
