What is the Pisces emoji?

The Pisces emoji ♓ depicts the sign of Pisces, a constellation and one of the 12 zodiac signs in astrology. It is commonly used to represent Pisces, people whose zodiac sign is Pisces, and astrology in general. According to astrology, people who were born between February 19 and March 20 have Pisces as their sign. For this reason, you’re more likely to see the Pisces emoji ♓ used during this time as people celebrate their birthdays.

Pisces is commonly known as The Fishes. The word Pisces comes from the Latin piscēs, the plural of the Latin word for fish (piscis). The Pisces emoji ♓ usually depicts the symbol of Pisces, two curved vertical lines with a straight horizontal line intersecting them. This symbol is said to represent two fish swimming in opposite directions tied together by a rope.

Pisces is, fittingly, a water sign, representing people who are in tune with their feelings and those of others. Reciprocate the love by brushing up on the best words to describe your Pisces friends.

Where does ♓ Pisces emoji come from?

The Pisces emoji ♓ was approved under Unicode 1.1 in 1993. On most major platforms, the emoji resembles the symbol of Pisces (a glyph that represents fish tied by a rope) colored white imposed on a geometric shape. On Apple, Samsung, WhatsApp, Twitter, and Facebook, the Pisces symbol is on a purple square with rounded corners. On Microsoft, the purple square has sharp corners and is surrounded by a black outline. On Google, the Pisces symbol is instead on a pink circle.

On Twitter, many people put the emoji representing their star sign next to their usernames in order to identify themselves. As is the case with all of the other zodiac signs, this is also true for the Pisces emoji ♓.

When the Pisces emoji ♓ is used, it is often accompanied by the word Pisces itself. This is likely done to help identify what the symbol means, as it may not be familiar even to fans of astrology. Pisces is commonly known as The Fishes and so it is often used alongside the Fish emoji 🐟.
