We’re back from Reading Week and heading right into Pisces season—a magical time where we can look at the people in our lives with a fresh set of eyes and compassionate hearts.

As always, it’s important to acknowledge conflicts when they arise, but you may find that it’s easier to have a positive outlook about your troubles this month. Write down your thoughts, read books that make you happy, and encourage that sense of inner peace so desired by this gentle water sign.

This month’s also a better time than most to focus on your mental health. Even if nothing is pressing, it’s always beneficial to take stock of thoughts, emotions, and actions, whether this be through therapy, spirituality, or simple meditation. 

With that in mind, here are this month’s horoscopes based on the sun placement relative to Kingston and your birthdate.

ARIES (Mar. 21—Apr. 19)

You haven’t sat down for a moment over the past month, but all the work you’re doing isn’t actually getting you anywhere. Put that energy and ambition in a different place than usual; instead of concerning yourself with others, look inward. Introspection is vital for your health.

TAURUS (Apr. 20—May 20)

You’ve been working slowly but steadily on mending your relationships. This is great, but the real issue is that you’re missing someone specific. Life seems colder since losing your connection with that one individual. But remember, no one else is in charge of your happiness.

GEMINI (May 21—Jun. 21) 

Anyone who’s pissed you off lately better stay out of your way. The urge to avoid certain people, or cut them out completely, is very strong within you. However, this isn’t the smartest or most compassionate plan. Explain honestly to the target of your anger the damage they’ve done.

CANCER (Jun. 22—Jul. 22)

It’s a rare day when your interactions with people go smoothly, but the occasional big fight between family members is perfectly normal. It’s safe to assume that their love for you will not disappear overnight. Take the olive branch when they offer it and allow yourself some dearly needed warmth.

LEO (Jul. 23—Aug. 22)

 Focus on trusting and being grateful for your romantic partner this month. Leo is a sign encumbered by self-consciousness and pride, but you can’t let this get in the way of a relationship that should be cherished. Shower your significant other with affection and be confident in their emotional investment.

VIRGO (Aug. 23—Sept. 22)

You can’t fuss over every little detail. None of these things are as big of a deal as you’re making them out to be. Take a moment to smell the flowers this month. You’re doing better than you think—in fact, you’re holding a winning hand.

LIBRA (Sept. 23—Oct. 22) 

Chances are you’re in conflict with someone right now and it’s put you in a prolonged sour mood. The stars have blessed you with good judgement, however, and you have two options: end the relationship in flames or restore it with blossoms. Either is possible, but be kind no matter what.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23—Nov. 22)

 Stay sharp throughout the month while laying out your plans. You’re feeling powerful, ready to take action, and unstoppable—it’s not a question of if you can do it, but if you should. Ask yourself if what you’re doing is morally right, or just what personally benefits you.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23—Dec. 20)

Dealing with difficult conundrums has made you restless, especially because none of them have simple answers. Daily life shouldn’t be a chore, but an adventure. Surround yourself with beautiful things, take long baths, wear vibrant colours. Most importantly, keep your eyes open—rough roads often lead to golden opportunities.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 21—Jan. 19)

By keeping an air of authority about you at all times, you have misled people into thinking you’re stiff. Reveal your easygoing side to them, as well as all the passion, gentleness, and beauty you carry within you. Mercury’s retrograde guarantees nobody will dare cross you, so relax.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20—Feb. 19)

Whatever you’ve been putting off lately, move it to the top of your to-do list. Ask your friends for help, since deceiving them about your circumstances is only adding to your mental clutter. Let yourself be taken care of, cut out all toxicity, and watch Tidying Up with Marie Kondo.

PISCES (Feb. 20—Mar. 20)

Mars is in Taurus, pushing your mild-tempered and gentle self to take advantage of your season. Pamper yourself and explore all the places you’ve wanted to go. What do you prefer, dark colours or pastels? Who cares—wear them both. The world is at your fingertips.
