The Pisces ultimate dream, writes Susie Cox in her book Susie’s Sun Signs, is “to feel peaceful inside because you are respected for your creative ideas.” Those familiar with legendary songstress Nina Simone, a Pisces born February 21, know how true that rings.

This High Priestess of Soul, as Simone was dubbed, was a force to be reckoned with — both in song and in the Civil Rights movement of the Sixties. But she was also famously temperamental, especially when it came to that aforementioned respect for her creative output. More than one journalist noted her tendency to lash out at a noisy audience. “Demanding of her audiences, she alternately coos for their adoration or barks at them for offering anything short of rapt attention,” wrote The New York Times, for instance, on the occasion of her Carnegie Hall performance in 2001.

And then there’s her performance at a 1976 jazz festival in Montreux, Switzerland, which marks the opening scene in Liz Garbus’ 2015 documentary, What Happened, Miss Simone? As the Daily News recounts: “She’s onstage… about to begin a pivotal comeback performance. The thunderous applause that greeted her when she walked on stage has died down.

“And then… nothing. The singer looks around judgmentally, fidgets and broods, letting an uncomfortably long silence linger before announcing that she’ll never play a jazz festival again, vowing to move ‘to a higher plane.’”

According to Cox, “Your Pisces child is the most fragile sign of them all.”
