Pisces (pron.: /ˈpaɪsiːz/, pis'eez; Ancient Greek: Ἰχθύες, "Ikhthues") is the twelfth astrological sign in the Zodiac, originating from the Pisces constellation. It spans the 330° to 360° of the zodiac, between 332.75° and 360° of celestial longitude, which in the Tropical zodiac the Sun transits this area on average between February 18 to March 20 each year.

Associations made with the astrological sign Pisces have shaped centuries of mythology, including the story of Christ. Although there is no scientific basis for characterizing someone’s personality by date of birth, Western superstitious belief is that Pisceans are reasonable, artistic, and quiet.
