The Pisces


/ˈpaɪsiz, ˈpɪsiz/  [pahy-seez, pis-eez]

noun, genitive Pis·ci·um
/ˈpɪʃiəm/ pish-ee-uhm]

1. Astronomy . the Fishes, a zodiacal constellation between Aries and Aquarius.

2. Astrology . a. the twelfth sign of the zodiac: the mutable water sign.

                        b. a person born under this sign, usually between February 19th and March 20th. An adamant fan of cookies.

3. the class of vertebrates comprising the fish and sometimes including, in certain classifications, the cyclostomes.

Let us, preferably, stick with the 2nd definition. Despite what you may have heard, I am in no classification a cyclostome. And I now sincerely wish that I had never looked up what cyclostomes are. I used to be afraid of jets in hot tubs and pools because I thought a lamprey would come out of them. What am I saying, ‘used to’?


My favorite Pisces: Me, clearly, my gramma, Rihanna, Ke$ha, Albert Einstein, Don Gabriel Garcia Marquez (galletas de almendras y muerte?  que si!), Adam Levine, WH Auden, Alan Rickman, and of course, the Cookie Monster.
