Accuracy: For what it offers which is basic definition and background information in limited detail, if that is all you're looking for then it is perfect. Someone just getting into the astrology pool and just wanting the basics need not look any further.
Readability and Clarity: It offers the information in very readable diction, breaking down the words that tend to be confusing like the Latin roots.
Ease of Navigation: It only offers the basic background of both Pisces the constellation and the astrology sign. So being that it doesn't bombard you with information, and most people only go to this type of sight for that information getting what you came for should be pretty easy. You won't even have to scroll.

Accuracy: This site offers information on the constellation Pisces, its location, surrounding objects, names of the stars in the constellation, and small background on the name.
Readability and Clarity: I posted this site, even though there is already a previous link with location information, because this site compared to that site had much more detail. I will leave that site, numbered "4" if you scroll down, on the page because maybe this one has too much information for your liking. The diction is easily readable, but all the numbers may confuse you depending on your level of knowledge in this area.
Ease of Navigation: The page is very easy to navigate, you may not have to scroll at all. There are no adds on the page or outside links other than an author's bio found at the very bottom.

Represents: Venus and Cupid
The constellation is most commonly associated with Aphrodite (Venus) and her son Eros (Cupid), who transformed themselves into fish in order to escape the terrifying giant Typhon. The immortal monster had been sent by Gaia (mother earth) to punish the gods for defeating their predecessors, the Titans, and the story goes that before turning themselves into fish, they tied each other to a piece of rope at each end so they would not lose one another in the turbulence of the water.
Location: Northern Constellation
Pisces is a northern hemisphere constellation seen between latitudes +90° and -65°, and located in a region of the sky called “The Heavenly Waters”, or the “Sea”. The easternmost fish of the constellation can be found just beneath Andromeda, and the westernmost fish just below the Great Square of Pegasus, with the imaginary line connecting the two travelling southwards in the direction of Cetus.
Best Seen: Autumn
Although the constellation is located in the northern sky, it is bisected by the ecliptic, meaning that it is visible from both hemispheres at different times in the year. From the northern hemisphere, Pisces is best seen in autumn, and in the southern hemisphere in spring. The ancient Greeks also welcomed Pisces as a sign of improving weather, of the two fish, one sees the end of winter, the other the beginning of spring.
Shape: “V”
Pisces is 14th largest constellations, taking up an area of 889 square degrees in the northern sky. In terms of its shape, the constellations looks like a large “V”, with a “circle” of stars on each end of the “V”. The base of the “V”, which is said to represent the cord that ties the fish together, is formed by the star Alrescha (Alpha Piscium). The Great Square of Pegasus seems to fit neatly into the “V” of Pisces, which makes finding the “fish” to either side of the Great Square easy.

Accuracy: Being that I linked an abridged version of the mythology, to appeal to all audiences, this is the complete story. In all mythologies the story of Pisces seems to follow one story line so there isn't much difference which mythology you may be looking for. However, both the Roman and Greek are included in this site.
Readability and Clarity: Being that this site offers even more information, it seems more complicated and is probably focused toward adults and students doing reports. It is well organized but will take some scrolling to finish, not too much though.
Ease of Navigation: Other than mild scrolling the page is easy to navigate. Again, there are links leading to other stories for your viewing pleasure, also there are pictures at the bottom of the page.
