Being a Pisces born on February 24th, you are perhaps most well-known for your intuition, selflessness and imagination. You have a firm grasp on your emotions and those of others, which explains your ability to sense when someone is upset. You use your emotional understanding to be a supportive friend, coworker and family member. Those closest to you would be the first to admit your selfless nature, as there have been numerous occasions where you put the interests of others above your own. In all aspects of life, you apply an active imagination, which allows you to see the best in people, situations and circumstances.
