Pisces Colours, Patterns, and Designs
Pisces colours are sea green, lilac, white (due to its mystical associations), silver (the colour of fish), and ocean colours such as deep blue, indigo, and violet. Pisces is drawn to nebulous, gentle curving or rolling patterns such as waves, clouds, smoke, ripples, and dancing lights. This sign usually prefers a soft blending of colours into one another (brushed patterns) to sharp lines delineating bold segments of colour. Pisces is also associated with patterns that give the suggestion of nature, natural things, the spiritual, or the mystical.

The Atypical Pisces
Not all Pisceans will conform to the typical Pisces profile. A Pisces whose rising sign is in Sagittarius rising, for example, will be very different from one who has Virgo rising. A Pisces with Sagittarius rising will likely be more outdoorsy and extroverted, and less inclined toward solitary artistic pursuits. With Virgo rising, the Pisces is more likely to turn creative aptitude toward practical crafts rather than art for art’s sake, and there tends to be a strong interest in nutrition and health.
