Pisces

In western astrology Pisces is the 12th sign of the zodiac, often represented as two fish tied together.

The fish representation is connected to the Greek Goddess Aphrodite. Typhon, the father of all monsters, was targeted by Gaia to attack the gods but they were warned by the god Pan. Aphrodite, along with her son Eros, transformed into the two fish and escaped into the Euphrates river.

Pisces is one of the earliest zodiac signs on record, going back to around 2300 BC when the telltale double fish symbol appeared on an Egyptian sarcophagus.

In mythology various divine bodies have connections to Pisces; including Vishnu, Aphrodite, Eros, Typhon and Poseidon.
