Pisces born into the twelfth zodiac sign, between Feb. 19 and March 20, are known as the compassionate, artistic, reasonable and quiet ones of the zodiac. According to horoscope.com, 2014 will be a year to help others. This year, when a Pisces helps a friend out, they will see their actions reciprocated. Pisces are urged to take advantage of their opportunities in 2014 but to proceed with caution. “One thing to remember is to pace yourself,” stated horoscope.com. “Some people might be trying to take advantage of your good nature.”
Pisces are recognized for their sympathetic hearts and highly imaginative nature. A Pisces will put others before themselves because they are insightful and selfless. KU junior Brooke Benson was born on Feb. 20 and considers herself a mix of Piscean traits and Aquarian characteristics.
“I am sensitive at times, but it’s weird being born on the cusp,” said Benson. “Pisces are supposed to be sensitive and emotional, which I am, but I also relate to Aquarians because they are loud and go with the flow.”
Pisces stand out in the zodiac as being mysterious. KU junior Justin Daullary relates to the magical, mystical side of the horoscope.
“I was born on Friday the 13th of March,” said Daullary. “I have a Pisces tattoo on my shoulder. The coy fish surrounding the Pisces symbolizes the luck in my life and the lucky 13 symbolizes me.”
While being a dreamer is one of their qualities, their imagination can also become a distraction and cause them to occasionally be detached from others.
Their compassionate traits drive them towards fast-paced careers. According to horoscope-love.eu,
“Piscean can excel in those professions that demand compassion and intuition. Recommended professions for a Pisces person could be sick care industries, animal care hospitals, social working, religious endowments and psychology.”
KU junior Marriah Hennigan is a Pisces and a psychology major.
“My friends tell me that I am aware of other people’s feelings,” said Hennigan. “Being a Pisces allows me to relate and understand the sensitive and emotional side of psychology studies
When it comes to relationships, Pisces will be at ease around fellow Cancers and Scorpios. The passionate nature possessed by Scorpios will create a powerful partnership between the intuitive Pisces. Pisces and Virgos will have initial disagreements but will come out stronger in the end with new perspectives. When Pisces are with an Aries, their relationship will be well-balanced because of their contrasting traits. Pisces will be most understanding toward other Pisces and can experience deep and enduring friendships.
“One of my friends, Jade Cortez, who I work with at the MSU info desk, is also a Pisces,” said Benson. “We both like to talk things out and get each others’ opinions on things because we are both able to be sensitive and help one another.”
The next sign of the zodiac is Aries, including birthdays between March 21 and April 19. Check out the March 27 issue of The Keystone for more on the Aries of KU.
