Pisces Astrology - Pisces is Latin for "fishes" and it is the twelfth sign of the Zodiac. Pisces zodiac symbol is two fishes tied together at their tails.
Pisces starts on the day on which the hours of daylight and night are equal, which falls about March 21. Therefore, Pisces claims the number one position of importance among the twelve constellations of the Zodiac.
For thousands of years, this faint zodiacal constellation south of Andromeda has been seen as two fish tied together on their tails.
According to Greek mythology, there was a monster God named Typhon, who was determined to overthrow Zeus and his entire group of gods from Mount Olympus.
Typhon was also called the Fire God, Evil God or God of Darkness.
He was very powerful and all Gods that followed Zeus got so frightened that they transformed themselves in animals and ran away into exile.
Zeus, the King of Gods, was much stronger and determined to beat the Evil God, so he alone remained behind to do the battle.
Unfortunately, he lost the first encounter with the monster God, but in the end, with the help of other faithful Gods, he conquered Typhon.
The legend of Pisces tells that one day Aphrodite and her son Eros were walking along Euphrates riverbank.
All of a sudden they sensed the presence of the monstrous Typhon and quickly plunged into the river where they transformed themselves into fishes and swam away to escape.
The mother and son tied their tails with a cord, to make sure that they don't lose each other in the water.
Their story of survival and love touched Zeus, who placed the twin fishes in the heavens as the Constellation Pisces.
