The constellation of the twin Fishes mysteriously twinkles among the stars, joined by a silver thread.
"The sea churns once, the sea churns twice, the sea churns thrice, every figure freeze in place," says a children's counting rhyme. Sometimes it seems like it's about Pisces, daydreamers prone to contemplation, as the stormy sea washes precious stones ashore.
Talismans that help representatives of this Zodiac sign link thought and action, dream and reality: aquamarine, pearl, amethyst, sapphire, coral, alexandrite, peridot, opal, emerald, lapis lazuli, spinel, carnelian.
When Pisces lack confidence and have no roof over their head — only uncertainty and doubts, they need a blue stone, dedicated to Poseidon and patronizing travelers, associated with cool reasoning. Aquamarine will help not to get confused, not to mix up where the sky is and where the ocean is, where dreams are and where reality is. It will give Pisces a peace where there is no room for panic.
It can be hard for Pisces to be understood: sometimes they seem like aliens to representatives of other signs. Aquamarine will help Pisces find a common language with others.
"My bounty is as boundless as the sea, my love as deep," Juliet says. Her words are as pure and transparent as aquamarine. This is precisely the stone Pisces need to express their feelings to a partner.
Pisces is not the most entrepreneurial Zodiac sign, but not because they lack business acumen or don't know how to make money. Pisces are just scatterbrained, easily deceived. That's why they could always use a pearl, which will protect them from deception.
Vermeer painted "Girl with a Pearl Earring," in which a soft matte glow illuminates the girl's beauty. Indeed, the pearl reveals a person's essence, showing them in the most favorable light. Pisces sometimes struggle to present themselves, but a talisman with a pearl will make them attractive to others, help their inner light break out and become noticeable to all.
Furthermore, a pearl, growing dull, will warn Pisces of impending difficulties. In this case, they should also pay attention to their health.
Pisces love to have fun, although they seem introverted. People around them are pleasantly surprised when Pisces suddenly become the center of attention and enjoy themselves as if at a carnival. "Let's raise the glasses, all at once!" suggests A. S. Pushkin, and it's Pisces who readily respond to this call. Amethyst will bring them to their senses, sobering them not only from alcohol but also from illusions. Pisces' dreams are so bright, and Pisces themselves are so convincing, that both they and those around them believe in their colorful projects. Amethyst will help Pisces soberly assess their capabilities and reserves.
Sometimes absolutely incredible rumors spread about secretive Pisces, but there is a reliable remedy to protect them from slander — a sapphire.
Pisces give themselves so strongly and sincerely to friends and loved ones that they forget about caution and become defenseless against betrayal. They share their secrets with their loved ones, not hiding their wallet. Sapphire will protect Pisces from betrayal.
In addition, this wonderful stone will be a support for Pisces during travels, preserving their ship in life's and sea's storms.
And finally, sapphire will help Pisces concentrate, stopping their "drifting" thoughts.
Little fishes hide in coral reefs: no large predator can reach them when they're under the protection of sharp spikes. Coral will protect Pisces from evil people and diseases.
Forgetful Pisces need a notepad to record important matters, or coral, which will improve their memory.
Unfortunately, Pisces are prone to migraines, but coral beads will relieve them of headaches.
Alexandrite favors risk-takers, a quality that Pisces often lack.
The color of Alexandrite is changeable, like the mood of Pisces: the stone and the person seem to adapt to each other. Alexandrite is the instrument, Pisces are the musicians. With such a talisman, you can play a charming love song or a symphony of life.
In Europe, it is believed that alexandrite evokes jealousy, and in India, this stone is associated with longevity. Whatever the case, one thing is clear: with such a talisman, Pisces won't be bored for many years.
Bazhov told in "The Silver Hoof" about a green stone called "peridot". It is considered a talisman of bankers and lawyers, and for Pisces, it will help cope with financial difficulties.
Pisces are good mediums, but it can be difficult for them to come out of a trance. To get rid of obsession, to come to their senses, they need peridot, which chases away bad dreams and evil spirits.
"A fish looks for deeper water, a person for better conditions," goes the proverb. But it does not say that Pisces strive to swim in different directions: they are restless until they find the main direction that matches their talent. Opal will help Pisces discover their abilities and indicate the direction in which they need to "swim".
Pisces are melancholic, it is easy for them to lose faith in their strength. "The darkest hour is just before the dawn," goes the saying. Opal can light up this hour and give Pisces hope. The talisman will dispel melancholy, warm the heart of Pisces, and one day help them find love.
Furthermore, being the patron of Pisces, opal will protect them from all kinds of troubles, from evil people, epidemics, and fires.
Emerald is a stone that brings abundance. This applies to meadows, underwater pastures (what kind of body of water is without bright, emerald-like algae), granaries, and wallets. The stone will help Pisces achieve their goals, strengthening their will.
Emerald will assist women during pregnancy, keep infants safe in the cradle, protect warriors on the battlefield, and support poets in their quest for truth and the right word. The crowning of all this is love, which Pisces will find thanks to the emerald.
Pisces' ability to learn everything about everyone without making any effort surprises the representatives of this Zodiac sign themselves. Lapis lazuli helps them gather information, and it's Pisces' job to process and systemize it. Isn't this what we call intuition?
Lapis Lazuli enhances the ability to empathize. Empathy allows one to see what is happening through the eyes of another person, to experience their feelings. Isn't this ability called clairvoyance? A talisman with lapis lazuli helps Pisces make conclusions from what they see, hear, and feel.
Isn't this what we call wisdom?
Pisces definitely get along with stones that help foresee the future. Spinel is always ready to offer its services to the representatives of this Zodiac sign.
Pisces tend to despair when there's no indication for it. Well, to prevent their fins, i.e., hands from dropping, spinel will also help them rejuvenate their spirits. And determined Pisces can achieve amazing results!
Romantic Pisces are looking for slow and ceremonial love, like a pavane - a slow ceremonial dance that shows the elegance of manners and movements. Swift affairs are not for Pisces - they won't have time to understand what happened.
Carnelian will help them find love in the rhythm of the pavane, such that cavaliers with swords, and ladies with trains would exist. And let this medieval flair have long since dissipated, but the wedding step "pavane" has been preserved. It is in this rhythm that Pisces, with the help of carnelian, will walk with their chosen one to the altar.

Stones contraindicated for Pisces
What can be said about Pisces? They can be the Goldfish or the Pike from Russian tales, and the formidable Shark all in one. Pisces are generous and patient (to a certain extent) intuitives, resilient, living in their inner world, but sometimes emerging to the surface.
Pisces are often accused of being cold, but this is not the case: they are very warm and emotional, it's just that their feelings rarely surface. Pisces are also accused of laziness, which is in fact contemplativeness; and absent-mindedness, which is a result of internal work hidden from the eyes of others.
There are stones that do not allow the virtues of Pisces to unfold, but instead amplify their natural shortcomings — they would do well to avoid such talismans. Here are these unfavorable stones:
- Hematite, having a connection with Mars, can tune peaceful Pisces to a militant mood. This will not make them warriors, but will only force them to worry.
- Garnet, stimulating material desires, excessively agitates Pisces, and they can't act calmly and measuredly.
- Ruby gives its wards pressure and excessiveness, but the strength of Pisces does not lie in this. As a result, the ruby-stimulated Pisces tend to overestimate their abilities.
Silver and gold for Pisces' jewelry
Silver for Pisces is the reflection of the sun in the sea and the moon in a mirror; a key that paves its way through stone; a needle that sews together fiction and reality; a candelabra with melting candles; mysteriously shining silk; a desk organizer holding plans; a compass pointing in the direction of a dream; a plunging waterfall; a hook and knitting needles making warm scarves; a memory of times when uniforms were trimmed with braid; a tuning fork setting the work tone; a casket where secrets are kept.
Silver, containing a mystery, will serve as a source of strength, mystery, intuition for Pisces, helping them see prophetic dreams.
Gold for Pisces is volcanic magma bursting from the depths of the planet; a lotus swaying on the waves; a bee and honey; sunflower pollen; a tulip preserving coolness; scissors that cut the threads connecting to troubles; the light of yellow lanterns on a summer evening.
Gold jewelry will help Pisces tune in for victory, feel confident in their power.
