Pisces Zodiac Sign – The Reason and Origin of Fish Sign of Pisces

Have you ever wondered why fish is the sign of Pisces Zodiac? It is widely believed that it was ancient Hindus and Egyptians who divided a year into spring, summer, autumn and winter and assigned to each season three constellations through which the Sun passed. The reason and origin of Fish Sign of Pisces is amusing but apt.

Pisces is also referred as fish (February 20 – March 20) as per Solar Calendar.

The reason for the name Pisces is because the season is full of water with the snow melting in higher regions. The rivers are full due to this reason. It is time for fishing as the fish enjoy gliding downwards.

Pisces is known as Meena or Meen Rashi in Hindu solar calendar and also in moon astrology.
