Key Themes: rest, extra sleep, trusting where your intuition is leading you, having fun with your self-expression, flirting, coming into your pleasure, being more present within your immediate environment

Dear Pisces, this is a year of transition, with the eclipses shifting signs, and Pluto going in and out of Aquarius until it finally settles there for the next 20 years at the beginning for 2024. The month of May begins with Pluto going retrograde on the 1st for the next 5 months, where it will begin to make its way back into Capricorn. Before it moves back into the sign of the sea goat for the last time in our lifetime, make sure you’re accepting the invitation to wander the depths of your subconscious. Take your sleep time more seriously, keep a dream journal, and respect your need for alone time.

We are in the midst of eclipse season, with the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio happening on May 5th in your area of philosophical pursuits and sense of expansion. Things may be feeling dark. You may feel led to let go of certain ideas, belief systems, spiritual guides, teachers. Let go of what you no longer feel is steering you in the right direction. Trust that intuition. Honor it, as they have gotten you this far, but trust that it’s time to say goodbye. Allow yourself to be lost, and trust that you are finding your way towards a deeper alignment to your truth.

Venus has been in the sign of play, communication and interconnection for the past 4 weeks, and on May 7th it will shift into the nurturing sign of Cancer, where it’ll have us yearning for the people and the places that feel like home for the following 4 weeks. Happening in your area of creative self-expression, Venus will urge you to center the things that feel good. Be unapologetic about making space for play and leisure. Listen to your inner child, feed it. When it comes to your creative projects allow yourself to be guided by your instincts, by the wisdom of your body.

Mercury will finally go direct on the 14th, after taking you through a review during the past 3 weeks of your ability to be in the present moment. Now as it goes direct in the sign of Taurus, acknowledge the delights of your immediate environment. Acknowledge the people you meet on a daily basis, even the ones you don’t necessarily speak to but are always there. Explore your ideas, and the things you’re curious about. You may be busier than usual. Try not to get overwhelmed by all you have to do. Tackle what’s most urgent first. Don’t leave the hardest tasks for last, because they’ll weigh on you. And try to find little ways to find the process more enjoyable.

Jupiter, the planet of abundance, is entering Taurus, the sign of earthly pleasure, on the 16th, and the first thing it does once it gets there is have a tense meet up with Pluto in Aquarius. This transit will serve as a reminder that our lack of wealth has nothing to do with us personally. It’s past time we stop buying to the manifestation discourse. It’s past time we realize that we’re living in a system that’s rigged to make it impossible for all to succeed or even make a dignified living. So know that your worth has absolutely nothing to do with your financial sustenance or your social status. You are worthy just as you are, dear Pisces.

For you, this year to come will bring good vibes all around, helping you to connect with gratitude and appreciation. It’ll also inspire you to write, and speak your mind. So if you’re a writer, podcaster, orator, or anything of the sorts or have been thinking about getting into a communication role, it’ll be an especially ideal time for you. You’ll also come into a new relationship with the art of listening, and much of your growth can come from the podcasts you follow, books you read and the conversations you engage in.

On the 20th, the Sun moves out of Taurus making way for Gemini Season. This is the season that reminds us of the power of our words and our interactions. So don’t underestimate what you communicate, to others and also to yourself. This time of the year serves as an invitation for you to build a nest for yourself. A place where you can feel safe, where you can feel held, and where you can unwind and relax, so that the things that you want to build can find a secure and nurturing home within you.
