2023 is a year of growth for you Pisces, and a chance to strengthen your relationship with yourself. It is so easy for you to get lost in other people’s needs, wants, and emotions, but this is a time when you begin to separate where you end and others begin. This year is also potentially financially abundant for you, especially when you work with Venus and Jupiter in your home sign. Saturn returns to Pisces for the first time in roughly 27 years, bringing some tension to your emotional expression, spirituality, and giving nature for the purpose of strengthening them. 2023 is where you learn to hone your gifts so that they do not deplete you. Remember that you cannot pour from an empty cup.
Who You Really Are
The last sign of the zodiac, beautiful Pisces brings us full circle with wisdom and understanding to show for it. Represented by two fish swimming in opposite directions, Pisces represents the duality of life, opposite yet equally vital, and our connection to everything that is. Compassionate, creative, spiritual, and emotional, Pisces brings peace, love, and kindness to the world without even trying. At their best, Pisces are empathetic, giving, wise, and artistic. At their worst, they can be out-of-touch, over-indulgent, and people-pleasing. Setting boundaries, being realistic, and caring for themselves first are skills Pisces must learn in this life.
Pisces is at home in the last house of the zodiac wheel, the 12th house of spirituality, dreams, subconscious, solitude, and endings. A mutable (adaptable, empathetic, and open-minded) water (sensitive, emotional, and creative) sign, Pisces is ruled by Neptune. Neptune is the planet of dreams and spirituality and contributes greatly to Pisces’ easy connection to the mysterious, paranormal, and unseen. The 12th house represents the end of life, as well as the period before birth. This is the part where we know everything and nothing all at once. This is the part where we simply believe. Pisces is consequently a believer, a dreamer, a psychic, and a giver. Guide us, Pisces. You know the way.
Career and Money
Career themes carry on pretty much as usual in 2023 (at least astrologically speaking) until the 4th of June when the full moon in Sagittarius appears. This full moon brings up feelings of a wider sense of purpose, a need to be challenged and intellectually stimulated, and a need to help others. Use these feelings to review where you are in your journey to your higher purpose, and ensure that where you are is more or less on track for your larger goals. From the 10th of November until the end of the year, it’s a great time to make big career moves like relocating, acquiring new skills, or starting your own business. Just make sure you double-check any details and plans between the 13th and 23rd of December.
2023 has a lot of abundant financial energy for you, especially until the 16th of May. This period is rife for all kinds of riches to come your way. The more passion, courage, and initiative you lead with, the more opportunity and generosity will come your way. The 12th of April in particular is an incredibly abundant day for you, so use it to start new ventures, income revenues, and for setting intentions around money.
From the 20th of February until the 20th of April it is a fantastic time to start new money ventures like investments. Be assertive, clever, and shrewd when calculating what risks to take, and give yourself enough time to think things over before you leap. The full moon in Aries on the 29th of September is a fantastic time to review your financial decisions and learn from them.
Friends and Family
This year begins with a concentration of social energy around January which is a good time to socialise, make friends, and seize opportunities. This is a time to do things you wouldn’t normally do, to challenge your old ways of thinking and to approach life with an open mind.
A transformation may come to its climax on the 18th of January in a way that changes the dynamic in one or more friendships. On the 3rd of July, the full moon in Capricorn provides a great time to reflect on your social circles and how you interact with others. Use this time to review the role of responsibility, emotional sensitivity, and maturity in your platonic relationships. Your social life fires up again towards the end of the year from the 1st of December, so take the lessons of 2023 into your new and improved friendships.
If your motivation or care factor surrounding home and family has been a bit stunted as of late, that’s due to change after the 13th of January. In fact, you will be more inclined to act decisively from then until the 25th of March than ever. From the 11th of April until the 27th of June, family, home life and self-care are coming into focus for you. This is a great time to communicate your needs clearly, to get your home or living space organised, and to be curious about conflict rather than combative. On the 27th of November, the full moon in Gemini provides a good catalyst for reviewing your current and previous family relationships, home life, and sense of safety.
Love and Romance
Long-term relationships don’t come on your radar astrologically until the 7th of March during the full moon in Virgo. During this time themes of selflessness, boundaries, commitment, and overthinking come up regarding the way you approach partnerships. Use this time to ground yourself, clarify your priorities, and fill your own cup first.
From the 10th of July until the 8th of November, the time for starting, deepening, or even ending long-term relationships is now. Clear your mind in nature, be selfless with moderation and resist the temptation to get caught up in perfectionism. Miscommunications are more likely from the 23rd of August until the 15th of September, so be clear, honest and kind with your words. Relationship tension may come to a head on the 10th of October, and will likely make or break your current partnership.
As far as dating goes, the 5th of June may contain a big change or transformation for you, a love interest or a potential relationship. Between the 7th of May and the 23rd of August, you are at your flirtiest, most confident and most authentic. Make sure to protect yourself from those not worthy of your time, but also recognise the gift that is your vulnerability for those who deserve it.
Your Year in a Nutshell
2023 may challenge you, but it does it out of love. In a cosmic workout, the planets and stars send you worthy competitors as you build your strength. You are put here to love, give and feel, Pisces, but you cannot do that sustainably without building boundaries, self-love and self-worth.
