Zodiac sign of PISCES in a 15th century manuscript
The zodiac sign of PISCES is associated with the month of February and it is represented by two fish. In most of standard iconographic compositions, the two fish are represented nearly always swimming in opposite directions and are often linked together by a cord from both of their mouths. They usually swim horizontally and in some cases they are mirror images of each other. Water or other decoration is sometimes shown around them, but there can also be a blank undecorated area. In the modern horoscope the zodiac sign of PISCES covers the period from about February 19 – March 20.
