PiscesFebruary 19 - March 20
We have an explosive weekend coming up Skymates! Pisces, we’re about to collectively experience the meeting of Mars (planet of action) and Jupiter (planet of expansion), in the powerful sign of Aries. The fiery energy of this conjunction will begin to arise in the days before and continue to reverberate for days after – initiating us into a space of vitality, new paths and empowerment. Pisces, it may seem counterintuitive, but the universe is inviting you into a space of deep relaxation, mindfulness, grounding and connection to your physical body. The healthy tree must have strong roots before it can expand upwards, and the same applies to us as humans! This weekend will be perfect for self-care; nurturing and calming your mind before the upcoming New Moon takes you into a new chapter.
Key Themes: Self-worth, rebirth, personal myth, inner child healing, divine spark
Pisces, the month of May has the potential to feel like an energizing rebirth. There have been colossal waves of Pisces energy in the cosmos over the past few months, and this month invites you to claim your self-worth and move forward with a fresh perspective.
Venus leaves your sign on May 2nd to enter fiery Aries, activating Pisces’ sector of money and self-esteem until May 28th. Pisces, you’ve been working on harnessing resources to support your self-worth, and Venus in Aries asks you to claim the assets you’ve gained on your journey. The efforts made to step outside your comfort zone are spiritual assets that are worth being accounted for.
Mercury, the Planet of Communication, turns retrograde from May 10th to June 3rd, beginning in Gemini, where it highlights Pisces’ sector of family and home. The following two weeks are ripe for reviewing the personal myths you inherited from early childhood and re-examining which voice inside your head is actually yours.
As Mercury retrogrades into earthy Taurus on May 22nd, along with Venus in Taurus from May 28th to July 17th, you’re inclined to re-assess the information you consume to facilitate peace of mind as these transits highlight your sector of learning.
Your traditional ruler, Jupiter, has been transiting in your sign for the past year, and when it enters Aries on May 10th. Pisces, you’ve been letting go of so much, and Jupiter in Aries can provide the courage required to expand your sense of self. This Jupiter transit will foster opportunities in your sector of money and self-esteem until October 28th. It’s up to you to believe that you are worthy; only then can abundance flow. When Mars enters Aries on May 24th, you’ll be invited to follow through with decisive action and prove yourself to yourself in concrete ways until July 5th.
The Full Moon Total Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio lights up on May 16th at 12:14am, highlighting Pisces’ sector travel and philosophy. Your mission with this Full Moon Eclipse is to set yourself free from limiting beliefs. Pisces, allow any emotions that bubble to the surface during this time to melt away any fear of change.
Gemini season begins on May 20th, activating Pisces’ sector of home and family until June 21st. Gemini season is potent for bringing fresh conversations into your domestic environment and learning about your ancestral lineage. Gemini energy challenges you to explore how your feelings affect your thoughts and vice versa.
Vesta enters Pisces on May 24th, inviting you to protect the light inside that makes you special and to wear it on your sleeve. As the Asteroid Goddess of Spirituality highlights Pisces’ sector of personality until August 21st, your mission is to devote yourself to personal ceremonies and rituals to perverse your divine spark.
The inner work you’ve done all month long funnels into the New Moon in Gemini on May 30th at 7:30 am, activating Pisces’ sector of home and family. This New Moon portal provides a powerful opportunity to declare the story you’re choosing to carry forward. As you learn to reparent yourself, this New moon asks you to connect with the curious, wide-eyed, innocent child part of you.

Ruling Planet: Neptune, the Planet of Fantasy & Jupiter, the Planet of Luck
Where You’ll Find Them: In their own world, at an artist gallery, writing a song
What They Avoid: Predictability, structure, societal expectations
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.
