Pisces is a Water sign and as such this zodiac sign is characterized by empathy and expressed emotional capacity. Their ruling planet is Neptune, so Pisces are more intuitive than others and have an artistic talent. Neptune is connected to music, so Pisces reveal music preferences in the earliest stages of life.


What are the zodiac sign dates for every star sign? Your zodiac sign, also known as your Sun sign, is based on a range of dates that lasts about a month. If you were born with this date range, you are a member of this zodiac sign.

Although the exact dates can shift plus or minus a day, depending on the year, here are the general zodiac sign dates used by Western (or Tropical) astrology:

WESTERN ASTROLOGY STAR SIGN DATES

The Tropical Zodiac: Stars signs based on seasons, not constellations

In Western astrology, your star sign dates are calculated we use what’s called the Tropical Zodiac, which is based on the seasons. It is calculated by the path of the Sun against the sky, called the ecliptic, as it travels through an imaginary 360-degree circle known as the zodiac.

In second century Alexandria, the great mathematician and astronomer/astrologer Ptolemy created the Tropical Zodiac. It’s is a fixed system that is not affected by changes in the constellations or the Earth’s axis. Ptolemy used the same names for the zodiac signs as he did for the constellations, which is why there is often confusion around the birth date range. The Tropical Zodiac is static and not affected by shifts in the Earth’s axis. It is based on the seasons.

The Tropical Zodiac begins every year with the Aries pseudo-constellation—or the Aries slice of the zodiac wheel—which is based on the position of the Sun at the Spring Equinox on March 21. The Sun enters Cancer on the Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year. It enters Libra at the Fall Equinox, and it enters Capricorn at the Winter Solstice, or the shortest day of the year.

What if I was born on a cusp?

The Sun moves into a new zodiac sign every 30 days, on approximately the same date every year. *However, it can shift by a day from year to year, and that’s why we have the concept of a “cusp” birthday. The myth of the cusp is that you are two star signs, instead of just one. You’re not. Whatever zodiac sign the Sun was traveling through at the moment of your birth determines your star sign. To figure out your exact zodiac sign, you need to know what time you were born. You can do a free chart here to discover what your actual Sun sign is.

I heard there were new zodiac signs, or a 13th sign called Ophiucus? Is this true?

Periodically, astronomers will point to the fact that the Earth’s axis has wobbled and therefore the position of the constellations in relation to us has shifted. They are correct about that. However, they will then announce that there is actually a 13th sign, or a new zodiac sign, called Ophiucus. This is NOT true.

Here’s why: Western astrology is NOT based on the actual positions of the constellations. It is calculated by the Earth’s rotation around the Sun, using a fixed and imaginary circle (or band) around the Sun that is divided into 12 different 30-degree segments.

Vedic Astrology and the Sidereal Zodiac

Vedic astrology, also known as Jyotish, is the traditional Hindu astrology system. It is based on the Sidereal zodiac, or Nirayana, which is an imaginary 360-degree “belt” of zodiac signs divided into 12 equal sectors. However, Vedic astrology is different from Western astrology in that it measures the fixed zodiac, rather than the moving zodiac. So in Vedic astrology, the Aquarius dates would be February 13-March 12. Go figure!

In this daily horoscope for March 29, Bustle's resident astrologer Mecca Woods, founder of My Life Created, shares the astrological events happening today that will affect every zodiac sign. Below, here's a look at how astrology will affect our lives today.

What Is Your Zodiac Sign For March

What does uranus represent in astrology. The moon is stationed in balance-seeking and partnership-oriented Libra today. If we’ve been feeling off-kilter or more isolated than usual, the Libra moon encourages us to bring ourselves back into harmony, as well as connect with people we enjoy. With the moon teaming up with optimistic Jupiter in community-focused Aquarius by the afternoon, we’re not only encouraged to seek out things that fill us with hope and good vibes, we’re encouraged to spread those good vibes around to others.

Since chatty Mercury spends most of the day conjoined to dreamy Neptune in Pisces, we’re called to speak with more tenderness and compassion. At the same time, this Mercury-Neptune aspect can be great for creative inspiration and ideas. That said, with these two planets together, we’ll have to be mindful of seeing only what we want to see in a person or a situation. This is especially true, as the Libra moon faces off with powerful Pluto in Capricorn by the evening, which could bring up uncomfortable feelings. The best way to handle this cosmic energy is by using artistic, meditative, or therapeutic mediums as a means of working through our feelings.
