Pisces, today at 4:40am EST, the moon leaves fiery Leo to move into the grounded, practical energy of Virgo. Virgo energy teaches us to serve, perform faultless work and to prioritize the wellbeing of ourselves, our loved ones and our planet. Ruled by Mercury, Virgo combines a focus on practicality, intelligence. The moon in Virgo creates an energy that’s analytical, observant, and grounded in the physical world. Pisces, the energy of Virgo is your direct opposite sign. This gives you the unique opportunity to embrace a side of you which you may not usually allow. Today, sink into the simple pleasures of the physical world. Eat a delicious meal, take a warm bath, have a deep, restful sleep – or do all three! Enjoy it.

Pisces, the 12th and final sign of the zodiac, is all about connecting with depth and the subconscious. As a Water sign, Pisces is profoundly emotional, sensitive and intuitive. Pisces are known for their big hearts, full of love and compassion. They tend to wear their hearts on their sleeve, unlike the more guarded Water signs Cancer and Scorpio. Pisces is the ultimate dreamer, often floating off into their own world when the “real” world gets too overbearing. With Pisces, there’s so much more than what meets the eye. Pisces can play tricks on your mind due to their adaptability, which is why they’re symbolized by the Fish.
Pisces are artists, healers and mystical being, so they don’t often gravitate towards conventional career paths. They’d ideally not even want to work at all, because Pisces understand that life is meant for being more than just a rat race. Life’s meant to be felt and experienced fully, and Pisces is too often aware of how easily desensitized and disconnected human beings can be. That’s why many Pisces use art as their outlet — they’re able to remind everyone of our collective humanity and our transcendent talents.
If you want to be friends with a Pisces, be prepared to deal with their unpredictable nature and occasional moodiness. Pisces doesn’t do that well when it comes to being on time or continuing a super long stream of conversation, and that can lead to people feeling like Pisces is irresponsible or flakey, when in reality they’re just doing their own thing. Pisces is a loyal, caring, intuitive friend who often knows what’s going on with a loved one just by looking at them in their eyes. There is a darker side of Pisces in friendship, though, one that Pisces may at times try to deny. Pisces can be an all-consuming friend, and there are moments when jealousy or envy gets the best of them. Pisces’ mission is to learn to accept each and everyone of their feelings — they aren’t “good”or “bad” — they’re just what they feel. The more they resist their feelings, the stronger their feelings become.
A Pisces in love is a beautiful sight, as long as the relationship isn’t a toxic one. As the most spiritual sign of the zodiac, Pisces tends to have a savior-complex in relationships, and this can lead to them being overly self-sacrificing and compromising, to their own detriment. Since Pisces is ruled by Neptune and Jupiter, they can sometimes idealize their lovers or put them on a pedestal. They also don’t always let go of unhealthy unions, causing them to go through more pain than necessary. Alternatively, once Pisces becomes more aware of their inner strength, they’ll be able to transcend toxic unions and attract soul-stirring, mutually beneficial, transformative connections. Once Pisces fully trusts their lover, they invite them into their orgasmic world, and nothing is ever the same.
