Can we stop with the stereotype that pisces are helpless and sensitive

I am a Pisces ascendant and can appear quite non-confrontational. My friend is a double pisces and she is a big ball of fluff.

It would be fun to meet a Pisces that has Sun, and Mars in Pisces in the first house though. Two very masculine planets coloring a feminine, and kind of passive sign.

What would such a person be like?

THE IMAGE OF THE FISHES aka PISCES :smile:


Introduction to Hellenistic Astrology Part I - Zodiac​


The image of the Fishes is feminine, nocturnal, double-bodied, watery, oceanic, notable, silent, fertile, passionate, missing limbs, two-coloured, mobile, lying and of the west wind. It indicates governorship, travel, wealth, water and summons. Depending on the placement of the houseruler, men born under the influence of Pisces are small, disproportioned and awkward, complicated because of the directions of the Fishes, changeable, restless, mystical, slight, wandering, popular, slightly sallow, delicate, with ruddy head, fish eyes, beautiful hair, soft hands, bright voice, white in complexion, traders, endowed with genius, unsteady, trustworthy, full of ideas, philosophers, commanders of fleets, marines, sailors and business expediters.

Domicile of Jupiter, exaltation of Venus, depression of Mercury, it controls the feet, the reproductive system, the digestive system and the integumentary system. It causes skin diseases on account of the rough skin. It is equinoctial, like-empowered with Virgo, like-ascending with Aquarius and like-engirding with Sagittarius, short in the Northern Hemisphere and tall in the Southern Hemisphere. It is vernal, hot and moist for the north, and autumnal, cold and dry for the south. Pisces controls Phazania, Nasamonitis, Garamantica, Lydia, Cilicia and Pamphylia. The southern fish body is rising up to the 12th degree, the southern fish tail up to the 16th, the southern cord up to the 19th degree, the northern fish up to the 28th, and the bond up to the 30th.

The first 12° belong to Venus - fertile, jealousy, with many enemies
The next 4° belong to Jupiter - advancement, elevation, commanding
The next 3° belong to Mercury - intelligence, well-grown, highly frivolous
The next 9° belong to Mars - violent, excessive, with many accusations
The final 2° belong to Saturn - virtuous, wise, dominant

Head of the Southern Fish - Mercury and moderately Saturn
Body of the Southern Fish - Jupiter and Mercury
Southern Tail and Cord - Saturn and moderately Mercury
Body of the Northern Fish - Jupiter and moderately Venus
Northern Cord - Saturn and Jupiter
Bond - Mars and moderately Mercury


Such, then, are the observations of the effects of the stars as made by our predecessors

Aye, chia. Pisces can be gentle, kind, compassionate, but that doesn't mean they are weak.

I personally don't like or dislike pisces, however I try to meet other signs because my own chart is quite Pisces-heavy (pisces ascendant and Neptune culminating). I want to soak up the energies from other signs. Hopefully the cardinal signs. Especially Libras.

Mmmm them Libras. And if you ask, wasn't your ex-manager a Libra? and I be like, "yes, yes he was. And no, I have NOT learned my lesson!!"

Tropical pisces (Feb 19-Mar 10) can be sidereal Aquarius, the more pacifist and less confrontational sign, we can't assume all Pisces and/or Aquarius people are weak or wimps, there are ways to fight back by using words not fists, bullets or violence.

One of the greatest & least known Pisces, a man of great courage who discovered the source of the River Nile. An explorer that never really got the credit he deserved.


Burton, Richard (1821)

:sun::pluto::venus::mars::pisces:


British adventurer, explorer, writer and scholar of Islamic writings and languages. He traveled Europe, Arabia, Ethiopia and Africa, exploring the source of the Nile and writing books of his adventures. His famous translation of "Arabian Nights" is a classic.
Burton spoke 29 languages. He converted to Hinduism, then Islam, and, disguised, entered forbidden and inaccessible places. He consumed opium and hashish, and sampled every available woman and brothel east of Suez.

I know a family friend who's born on March 1 or 2 who fits the "very beautiful" venus and "prosperous" Jupiter-both combined to feature a mother of 3 kids. However, her birthdate is the fall of Mercury, her Mercury seems to be strong, she was a school teacher and is highly educated including her affluent family background. And in sidereal, an Aquarius, a more possible sun sign she has.

In tropical astrology, Feb 15th is Aquarius: I'm in 26' Aquarius sun, but I feel more Jupiterian and my 20' Aquarius moon is more Venusian. A March 1-2nd birth in sidereal Aquarius will be similarly Jupiter-Venus. It's good to know astrology to figure out your family (my Mom's Taurus sun, Aqua-Pis cusp moon and Sag-Cap rising), lovers (my GF's scorpio sun, Aqua moon and Cap-Aqu rising) and friends' (in this case, Gemini moon and Sag rising) signs.
