Pisces the Dreamer

"Carps" by Ohara Koson
 
"I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world."
--Albert Einstein, physicist, philosopher and Pisces

Many modern Pagans prefer to pick names based on astrological signs. Yes, I know I just finished doing a series of posts very similar to this on the old blog, but this time I'm not limiting myself to thirteen names. Llewellyn's Complete Book of Names by K. M. Sheard is an excellent resource for finding names to go with specific astrological signs, so if you want even more options than the ones I list here go find that book.

The sun sign of Pisces occurs roughly between February 18 and March 20, depending on the year. Because this is the "last" zodiac sign, Pisces is believed to have the characteristics of an elder sibling. They are able to empathize with the experiences and world views of all of the different zodiac signs. Pisces is ruled by the element of water, so people with this sign are emotional, spiritual, adaptable, and compassionate. Pisceans have great imagination and intuition which helps them succeed in artistic endeavors and other forms of self expression. The symbol for Pisces is two fish swimming in opposite directions, which hints that Pisceans can be wishy-washy or directionless. They may shut down during confrontation and can be overly sensitive. They also tend to be in love with their own suffering. However, when their period of angst is over, Pisceans have the tremendous ability to bounce back stronger than before.
