HOROSCOPE

As a Pisces born on February 27th, you are well known for your imagination, intuition and selflessness. You have an active mind, which you use to meet all aspects of life with creativity. At times, your imagination takes you into a world of your own, but luckily your intuition keeps you in tune with the outside world. For reasons you cannot explain, you have the innate ability to sense the emotions of others, especially when a loved one is upset or troubled. You use your emotional understanding to be a truly selfless friend and companion. Your friends and family would be the first to admit that you often put their interest far above your own.
