“Last night I wept. I wept because the process by which I have become woman was painful. I wept because I was no longer a child with a child’s blind faith. I wept because my eyes were opened to reality….I wept because I could not believe anymore and I love to believe. I can still love passionately without believing. That means I love humanly. I wept because I have lost my pain and I am not yet accustomed to its absence.”
— Anais Nin

If Your Birthday is Feb. 21
(The Day of Intimacy) | Pisces Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
You are not a victim of life; not only that, you know from experience that love is the answer to all of the world’s problems. It’s a good thing you have plenty to offer. Do so freely; the more you offer your passion and beauty to the world, the better you’ll feel, and the happier you will be. Bring the warmth to a chilly world, and offer forgiveness where there’s anger.
|Current Pisces Weekly Horoscope
In astrology, the 12th house is the one that is usually said to correspond with yours, the 12th sign. This is the most mysterious house, which is about all things invisible, and not available to the normal senses. How have your dreams been?
|Current Pisces Monthly Horoscope
You are made up of all of who you are. To be yourself, you must be completely you, and draw on all of your experiences and all of your feelings, and count every need and desire as valid. Be aware of when you try to cast away or disown certain elements of your being.
Written in the Planets
Today’s Venus-Neptune conjunction is a reminder to keep idealistic expectations about the object of your affection in check. Yet it’s also an open invitation for soul-level connection with someone, or to make (or appreciate) some truly inspired art. Meanwhile, Mercury is making a conjunction to Nessus in Pisces and a sextile to Saturn in Capricorn. There’s an opportunity here to make some headway in addressing the effects of a persistent, troublesome pattern — specifically, it would seem, certain patterns of thought or communication. If that rings a bell, has it ever occurred to you that this pattern might be one you learned or inherited from a family member? This realization, if true, might make it easier to release or at least loosen your identification with it.
