MORE ABOUT PISCEAN

What does Piscean mean?

A Piscean is someone whose zodiac sign is Pisces.

Piscean can also be used as an adjective to describe something related to the zodiac sign or to the constellation that it’s named for.

The constellation Pisces is a group of stars thought to resemble two fish. It is sometimes called the Fishes. Pisces is considered one of the 12 zodiacal constellations—constellations that appear within a particular portion of the sky called the zodiac.

In astronomy, the zodiac is the band of sky along which the paths of the sun, the moon, and the planets appear to move.

Despite its basis in astronomy, the word zodiac is mainly associated with and most often used in the context of astrology, the nonscientific practice in which the positions of heavenly bodies at certain times are thought to influence or be correlated with human behavior and events. In astrology, zodiac refers to a diagram (often a circular one) representing the zodiac belt and showing the symbols associated with each of the 12 constellations or sections, which are called the signs of the zodiac. Pisces is one of these signs. It is situated between Aquarius and Aries and is considered the twelfth sign of the zodiac.

The position of the sun in a particular portion of the zodiac at the moment of a person’s birth is thought to correlate with their personality. This is what people are referring to when they talk about their zodiac sign (or star sign or often just sign). A person whose sign is Pisces has a birthday between February 19 and March 20. They can be called a Pisces or a Piscean.

Example: I never knew I was a Piscean until my friend looked up my sign.

Where does Piscean come from?

The first records of the word Piscean come from the 1920s. It is a form of the word Pisces, which comes from the plural of the Latin word piscis, meaning “fish.”

In astrology, the different signs of the zodiac are thought to be associated with certain personality traits. Pisceans are thought to be romantic, which is fitting, since the two fish of the constellation Pisces are said to represent the Greek love goddess Aphrodite and the love god Eros.
