Pisces Dates of Birth
Is Your Zodiac Sign Really Pisces?
Ephemeris, table of planetary positions, from the Renaissance.
Every fourth year we add a day to the calendar, the 29th of February, making that year 366 days. Actually, there's an additional rule, to make it more precise with the actual movement of earth and the sun: the starting year of a new century is not a leap year, unless it's evenly divisible by 400. So, 1900 was not a leap year, but 2000 was.
The leap years make the dates of each Zodiac sign change slightly. Normally, Pisces starts on February 19 and ends on March 20, but that's just the mean. In reality it changes slightly in a four year period from one leap year to the next.
Here are the leap years of the last century:
If you were born on the 19th of February or the 20th of March, you have to check if you're really an Pisces or not. It never differs more than a day in each direction. The start of Pisces is on the 18th or 19th of February, and the end of it on the 20th or 21st of March. People born on other dates need not be concerned.
Cusp or not
It's particularly important with this check If you were born far away from Greenwich, England, since that's the base for the dates given for Pisces.

If your sun is at the very end of Pisces, you may show personality traits of both Pisces and Aries, but If you were born at the very start of Aries, no matter how early in it, you're most definitely an Aries.
That's because each sign is the most powerful at its beginning, its cusp.
Pisces is the mutable water sign. That means its most typical part is the last one - the ten degrees making its third decan, 21°-30° Pisces. That corresponds approximately to the dates March 11-20. If your birth date is within this range, you're likely to be a very typical Pisces.
If you were born in late February, the 20th-29st, you're still a Pisces, but with character traits comparable to those of Cancer (the cardinal water sign). If you were born on March 1-10. you have some tendencies similar to those of Scorpio (the fixed water sign).
But the most important thing to decide is what sign you are. So, If you were born on February 18th-19th or March 20th-21st, please have your correct horoscope calculated to be sure of your star sign.
