What Type of Sign is a Pisces?

What is a pisces? Pisces is a water sign. Includes those born between February 19 and March 20

People born between February 19 and March 20 are considered Pisces. This is because it's the February and March zodiac sign.

According to the astrology definition, they are the last sign of the zodiac and are symbolized by two fish swimming in opposite directions. This can represent how Pisces feel when they have to make decisions.

Pisces is associated with the element water, which gives them a fluid and emotional nature. This helps them to go with the flow and stay in a state of creativity and imagination. That's why so many Pisces are artists or creative types.

Water sign traits, which also include Cancer and Scorpio, are typically identified as the following:

  • Emotional
  • Intuitive
  • Sensitive
  • Imaginative
  • Compassionate
  • Forgiving
  • Gullible
  • Sympathetic

Pisces is considered a "negative" sign because it's ruled by Neptune, which is associated with illusions, deceptions, and self-delusions. However, this also makes Pisces compassionate people. And because they're so sensitive, most Pisces are private and enjoy their alone time.

Best Gifts for a Pisces

Okay, so now you know more about the characters of a Pisces. But you still might be wondering: How can I find a unique birthday gift for a Pisces? Look no further, because we'll share some of our favorite ideas to make it easy on you. We know how stressful it can be to choose the perfect gift.

First, let's look at the color palette for Pisces, which includes their birthstones. It may just give you the direction you need to purchase something your Pisces will love forever.

The Pisces Color Palette

In order to narrow down your choices in buying the best gift for a Pisces, start with the colors unique to their sign. You'll want to focus on palettes with:

  • Blues and greens (aquamarine, ocean blue, and seafoam green)
  • Soft neutrals (creams, beiges, light browns)
  • Pastels (pinks, lavenders, blues)

Reds and other bright colors can work, but stay away from dark red and black. Because a Pisces is a water sign, stick with colors that remind them of the ocean or even the beach. These colors help to keep them in a calm and serene state, which is essential for any creative person.

Pisces Birthstone

When you think of the traditional birthstone by each month, there is typically just one stone. But for the zodiac signs, more than one stone is associated with each one. The three birthstones for Pisces are the following:

  1. Aquamarine
  2. Amethyst
  3. Bloodstone

Aquamarine stones get their name from a Latin phrase that means "water of the sea", which definitely fits its physical characteristics. If you think your Pisces is in need of feeling purified or a sense of mental clarity, then go with this color when buying them something special.

Amethysts evoke feelings of calm and rejuvenation. The varying shades of purple are rich and warm, and purple was used only for royalty back in the day. Purple is such a versatile color for just about any gift. It looks great on just about anyone and is a gorgeous color for decorating the home.

Bloodstones aren't the prettiest of the Pisces birthstones, but they are known to help with healing and mental clarity. In contrast to the black of the stone itself, the small red flecks are meant to symbolize blood – and blood or health purification.

If you choose to get something for your Pisces inspired by this stone, get them something they can wear as jewelry or use to decorate their home or office space.
