HOROSCOPE

Being a Pisces born on February 22nd, your personality is defined by your intuition, selflessness and imagination. You have a natural connection to the emotions of others, which explains for your ability to sense when others are upset or troubled. While others may be content simply understanding the emotions of others, you are not satisfied unless you can also offer support. Your loved ones can attest to your selfless nature, as they would struggle to recall a time when you did not have their best interests at heart. In addition to your compassion, you also have a very active imagination. When paired with your positivity, your active mind allows you to be optimistic about possibilities in all aspects of life.
