Personality Traits

Technically, if you’re born on February 21, you also have some personality traits from Aquarius. Those born from February 15 to February 21 are within the Aquarius Pisces cusp. This transitionary period means you can have traits from both signs! The Aquarius and Pisces cusp is one full of emotion and imagination. It’s also known as the Cusp of Sensitivity.

The February 21 zodiac sign is empathetic and kind. If you were born on this day, you’re likely a talented listener. You love to help people and do your best to put others before you. Other than helping people, you’re creative. The Aquarius-Pisces cusp is an extra dreamy one. Those born on February 21 love life and adventure. Typically, they have multiple jobs and interests.


Pisces have many strengths. Their creativity, sensitivity to emotion, and adaptable nature are great traits. Pisces use their creativity and imagination to come up with unique solutions. Pisces are natural problem solvers.

As empaths, they are also great at managing stress. A February 21 Pisces gives great advice and knows how to calm down people. They are natural-born leaders. These are skills many Pisces use in their careers.

Pisces also look for challenges. They don’t like to sit still. If you have a challenge for them, get ready for amazing results. Pisces think outside of the box.


Weaknesses and strengths are interesting, because depending on the situation they can land in the same category. A common weakness for those born on February 21 is restlessness and a lack of focus. Your dreamy personality means that sometimes your head is stuck in the clouds, which can get in the way of your day-to-day life.

Some Pisces are also too generous. There is nothing wrong with wanting to help people. However, not everyone who needs help is a good person and may take advantage of you. Pisces can be naive, letting people, even loved ones, walk all over them.

Another potential Pisces weakness is moodiness. Since February 21 zodiac signs are empathetic, this can translate to moodiness when overwhelmed. This can make it hard to stay focused and remain calm in an overwhelming situation. Remember, before taking care of someone else, you need to take care of yourself.


Pisces zodiac sign

Pisces can suffer from poor circulation.


Did you know in astrology, your zodiac sign can also predict your health? While it’s fun to read in horoscopes, always go to a medical professional with any concerns!

Pisces are generally healthy, however, they struggle with stress and poor circulation, which can affect their feet. Stress can cause indigestion and stomach aches, which is common for Pisces. This is because Pisces are empaths and feel others’ emotions as their own. When this happens, it can lead to stress, or a nervous ‘butterfly‘ feeling in your stomach.

Interestingly, Pisces can also suffer from foot problems, typically because of poor circulation. Pisces feet can be sensitive. Another potential health problem is a poor immune system. Pisces commonly fall ill with colds or the flu. You can read about your daily health horoscope online. But as stated previously, always talk to your doctor if you have any health concerns.


Job options are endless for the February 21 zodiac sign. Based on their personality traits, Pisces can work in many different careers and environments. They are caring people, so social interaction in a job is necessary. A common strength for Pisces is their love for a challenge, which helps them find difficult and unique careers.

Pisces thrive in constantly changing work environments. They aren’t made for the regular 9 to 5 sitting at a desk. Many Pisces work freelance jobs and travel to speak with clients. Others work 9 to 5 jobs, but interact with new people daily, trying their best to help them. 

Some careers best for Pisces include:

  • Painter
  • Teacher
  • Nurse
  • Mental health specialist
  • Special needs aid
  • Freelance writer
  • Sales
  • Marketer and copywriter
  • Fashion designer
  • Photographer
  • School counselor

Love Life/Compatibility

Pisces are emotional, vulnerable, sensitive, and romantic people. They love affection and romance. Pisces are natural givers. They get along with many different types of people, still, they aren’t compatible with every zodiac sign. However, even the most incompatible mix can work with patience, dedication, and trust.

Pisces make great partners. They are best suited for other water signs or earth signs. Water signs are trusting, creative, and in tune with their emotions. However, earth signs also get along with Pisces, on a platonic and romantic level. Earth signs are also emotional, but not to the same degree. They are more grounded and can help their Pisces partner make decisions based on reality.

One of the best matches for a Pisces is a Taurus. This earth sign is grounded, unlike Pisces, and yet they share many similarities. Pisces allows Taurus to feel safe and comfortable in their emotions. Pisces and Scorpio are also very compatible. Scorpio is also a water sign. However, while this pairing works well, time apart is needed to have a steady and trusting relationship.

While Pisces can have a relationship with any sign, there are a few that don’t mix well. For example, a Pisces and Sagittarius couple can fall flat. Sagittarius is a fire sign. While opposites attract, it takes hard work. Sagittarius, the Archer, is a strong zodiac sign that isn’t as in tune with their emotions as Pisces. Their partner will likely need more support, which can frustrate or put off a Sagittarius. Still, this match can work with time, trust, and work. Love is all about understanding.
