Being a Pisces born on March 2nd, your self-sacrificing and sensitive nature are amongst your most defining qualities. While others keep their own interests at heart, there is little you would not do to help a person in need. Whether it is family, friends or a complete stranger, you will make the necessary sacrifices to insure their well-being. Even more impressive, is the fact that you do not wish for anything in return for your efforts. Your family and friends have always marveled at your selflessness and sensitivity.
