SIGNS & HEALTH PISCES
Pisces the Fishes, is the twelfth sign of the tropical zodiac. The key phrase for Pisces is "I believe". This is the sign of expanded emotions, sensitivity and natural dumb luck.
This deeply sensitive and charming sign is ruled by Jupiter and Neptune. The new-age ruler of Pisces is Neptune, planet of the mysterious, illusory, spiritual and sensitive aspects in man. Piscean people are apt to be idealistic, sensitive and responsive to the thoughts and feelings of others. Their temperament varies from being strongly optimistic to acutely pessimistic. They are generally not ambitious for material gain, preferring human interactions. Their charm, humour and sympathy is what opens the gates of opportunities. Their dramatic abilities lead them to develop art, music or poetry. They are shy, artist, writers, actors & dreamers. Their behavior is unpredictable at times. Some of them are neat and well organized, while others are careless. The love to write fantastic novels, poetry and produce other artistic endeavors.
Pisces are daredevil and risk-taker. They like thrills of car racing, piloting a plane, exploring the wilderness, or hunting game. Pisces can be a compulsive eater. Sports and physical fitness routines are a good way to keep in shape and reduce emotional stress. Horseback riding, dancing, skating, swimming or sailing are favored activities.
Pisces (Rules the Feet)
Internally, Pisces rules the lymphatic system, synovial fluids and functions of the glands in general. Externally, it rules the feet and toes and structurally the bones of the feet.
