The Two Fishes bound together symbolize destructive instinct devouring innocence. The one who is martyred then rises again to become the redeemer. Thus, Pisces is born to suffer or to save, to sin or to sanctify-and usually both. Their self-destructive side often seduces them into dismembering their bodily prison, via drugs and alcohol, in search of the spirit within. It is their fate to wrestle with this extraordinary dilemma.
