Last of the zodiac – Pisces are the culmination of all the signs that came before. Read on to find out more about them and how to make their birthday celebration unforgettable this year.
Pisces is the last of the 12 signs of the Zodiac. Pisceans are born between February 19 and March 20. They are deep, sensitive and very intuitive people, with a strong sixth sense. Pisceans love to dream and often talk about ‘the soul’.
They can be quite seductive and confusing, as well as inspiring others to dream too. They wear their heart on their sleeve and can appear very vulnerable and insecure at times. They like to be surrounded by good friends and family and crave warmth, love and affection.
Pisces love romance and tend to have many partners in life, but they are faithful once they find someone special to them.
Pisceans will often go out of their way to help those in need, though they tend to worry about everyone else before themselves. Life for Pisces begins when they get their feet on solid ground and learn to walk, but it’s all about imagination and fantasy before then.
They are highly intelligent people who have a lot of creativity which they use to get out of any difficult situation one may be in. Their intuition helps this along more than anything else so it is important for them to listen closely to what their gut tells them.

Piscerians are the culmination of all the zodiac signs before them. They spend time dreaming and imagining and this is represented in their expression. They draw inspiration from books, poems, movies and songs they come across. Focusing on what feels right and trusting their guts.
As water signs, Pisces are in their element when surrounded by water. The color of the ocean and the sky are reflected in their personality, which is why you can’t go wrong with blue and white. They will enjoy a soft palette that soothes the soul.
Their rooms should be all about peace. Incense, candles and salt lamps should be used to create an ambiance of calmness. A comfy bed with soft silk sheets will give them the warmth they need to feel safe.
They love collecting trinkets and if they don’t have a room, they could use a wall shelf to display their treasures as an alternative to displaying on a dresser or table.
