2023: Pisces Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
Note: The summary of the year resides here, while the details are below.
The year 2023 brings themes centering around personal finances, communications, and learning for you, dear Pisces. Friendships this year are of a serious quality. It’s a time of making money, especially as you communicate your knowledge, while last year, you were more interested in aligning yourself with your goals on a personal level. You wanted your goals to reflect the real you. Now that you’ve achieved this, you are focusing on making a good living with your career and diversifying your interests.
It’s a good time to pay more attention to your money and things. You might enjoy a pay increase, your personal possessions become more valuable, or you treat yourself to (or receive) significant gifts. You’re also getting a lot of satisfaction from learning and communicating in 2023. Your interests grow, and you might take on several new projects or studies. Be careful not to overload yourself now, or your daily life becomes too hectic.
2023, for the most part, should be a stabilizing period for you and perhaps a humbling time. Saturn moves into your sign in March, asking you to pare down areas of excess or unhealthy expectations. It becomes a time for a reality check and a maturing process. Saturn brings the need to take care of matters left untied, unfinished, or neglected altogether. If there have been areas of life entirely up in the air, Saturn’s transit asks that you take care of them. The ultimate message here is to feel more in charge of your life. More order and accountability are empowering.
It’s an exciting time for enjoying your daily affairs and learning endeavors and improving your everyday environment or the transportation systems in your life. You have a stronger ability (and desire) to express yourself, and your personal interests grow. At the same time, it’s a year for stepping up to the plate, taking responsibility, and devoting special time and effort to achieving your personal goals.

Key Events in 2023 for Pisces:
Outer Planet Transits:
Jupiter conjuncts Chiron in March and is parallel Chiron in April. These influences encourage an increased need for greater understanding, wisdom, and awareness, as well as a stronger interest in the healing arts and holistic health. It may be a time when we update our personal belief system. The potential is high for working on ridding ourselves of negative attitudes that have held us back.
We can be especially interested in dealing with personal demons that have fractured our confidence and ability to assert our boundaries.
For Pisces, you’re coming up with very creative and unique business or money-making ideas. You can be resourceful and imaginative when transforming what you already have in new ways. You may be confronting fears or insecurities about your talents or earnings, opening you up to new ways to heal, improve, and grow.
Jupiter forms a square to Pluto in May. We’re ambitious, feeling that if we set our sights high enough, we can achieve anything. However, treading lightly now, while it may not come naturally, is advised as it is easy to stir up conflict. We may take on too many interests, activities, or desires under this influence. We should avoid exaggerating our importance or power, whether to ourselves or others.
Something challenges our belief system, and the need for a major attitude change arises. Narrow-mindedness can be a problem. Trying to force our beliefs on others will only lead to frustration. The tendency now is to push too hard in general and to ignore the critical details. Thinking in big terms is fine as long as the practical elements of any pursuit are taken into consideration.
For Pisces, your challenge is to re-evaluate your goals and prioritize them. You might learn that freeing yourself from some burdensome issues or secrets you’ve been keeping to yourself can be liberating, but be selective regarding who you share yourself with. You might also be dealing with insecurities or fears holding you back from saying what you feel and going after what you truly want. These need handling on your mission to express yourself more freely and joyfully.
Jupiter conjuncts the True North Node in early June, increasing our desire to make contact with like-minded people or with those who can help push us in the direction of growth and improvement. It’s a time of positive interaction, learning, and guidance.
For Pisces, there can be beautiful opportunities emerging through or with friends. News, communications, and information can open, bringing on a new perspective and connecting you to others in new and stirring ways. It’s a strong period for learning, sharing, and relating. In fact, your popularity can soar primarily surrounding your ideas, skills, and knowledge or the remarkable manner in which you communicate and connect. You’re making connections with people and information that further your learning and networking goals.
Jupiter forms a sextile with Saturn in June, bringing opportunities to put our plans into motion. We’re balanced in our approach to new endeavors, seeing both the potential benefits and pitfalls, and this improves our judgment. This influence helps us crystallize and lock down recent lessons learned and endeavors.
It’s a period of constructive accomplishment. We are practical, realistic, and our judgment is especially sound–and we derive much satisfaction from practical accomplishment. We find a good balance between planning and discovering.
It’s also a time when we value learning and sharing valid information from trustworthy sources. We respect reasonable, ethical, and sound approaches. The key to harnessing this wonderful energy is to identify and find pleasure in the simple things that make us happy.
For Pisces, pouring your energy into a special project can be consuming in all the right ways. The focus is on order and organizing, which can be very satisfying. You might put a significant project or venture into motion or lay the foundation for one. Self-discipline and more order in your life enable you to put particular effort into your studies and communication projects. There can be more respect for your ideas and pursuits. This is an excellent time for productivity. You recognize the value of a more balanced approach to personal growth.
Mars is retrograde from October 30, 2022, to January 12, 2023, in the sign of Gemini (pre-retrograde shadow begins September 3). Slowdowns, reparations, and reconsiderations are significant in your personal life, with the home, or regarding family. There can be weighty issues and delays to manage in your domestic world. Loved ones may not be as patient with you, or you with them.
Venus is retrograde from July 22nd to September 3rd in the sign of Leo, bringing about a need to rethink or reassess our personal relationships. Past lovers may reappear and some relationships may end. Problems with fire, passion, and attention can be hot topics.
We might revisit our past loves–typically in the mind only, but for some, on a physical plane as well. It’s not a good time for major decision-making regarding love, as we might regret our choices later. Think of this time as a process–you need time to allow your heart to catch up with the rest of you, and so do others.
We are called upon to deal with relationship issues from the past. Events occur that seem fated or predestined. It can be a real challenge getting close to a lover during this period. Unorthodox, experimental, and non-intimate relationships may be favored just for now. It’s not the best period for entering a new relationship or making big purchases, because our sensors regarding love and money are not up to par.
For Pisces, you see areas of imbalance or dissatisfaction in your work or daily environment. This review is important and can later lead to significant changes and improvements. It’s a time to get in better touch with your feelings, sensibilities, tastes, and values. You see your day job, chores, or health and daily routines in a different light. This cycle calls up questions of whether you’re enjoying yourself and are comfortable in these life departments.
Yearly Horoscope: 2023 Predictions for Pisces
If you know your Ascendant, read forecasts for both your Sun sign and your Ascendant sign. If you know your birth time, but don’t know your Ascendant, be sure to use the Cafe Astrology Ascendant Calculator. For those of you who are unsure of your Sun sign because it’s close to the neighboring sign, see What’s My Sun Sign?
The horoscope on this page, Pisces Yearly, shows the trends and predictions for the year in detail. Because outer planet transits are lengthy, there are variations in the timing of outer planet transits for each of the three decans of Pisces, and these are shown below the main, general forecast.
There are some supportive, interesting developments for you this year, dear Pisces. Every year, we see challenges and opportunities in different areas. It’s my hope that by understanding these areas of potential disruption and ease, you can make the most of these trends by seeking out the opportunities and managing the challenges.
The following chart shows the outer planets and other points in relation to your sign, revealing whether they are harmonizing with or challenging Pisces:
Grey is neutral (no direct relationship, but can be picky, nagging),
Pink is challenging (the planet is in a direct, challenging relationship to your sign),
and Green is easy and supportive (the planet or point is in a direct, harmonious relationship with your sign).
As is evident in the above chart, you mainly have the support of the outer planets in 2023! This doesn’t happen often. It makes it easier than usual to flow along and find healthy outlets for self-expression.
Still, Saturn enters your sign this year, and although it’s represented as a harmonious influence, it asks a lot from you regarding structure and responsibility.

Overview: Harmony and Challenge of Outer Planets:
Some of the outer planets are harmonizing with your sign again this year, Pisces. The two outer planets currently transiting Earth signs— Pluto and Uranus—harmonize with Pisces. Neptune is in your sign again this year.
In truth, Pluto is transitioning out of its sign, but it’s not directly impacting Pisces in 2023.
The big news is Saturn entering Pisces from March 7th forward–it’s an important transit for getting your life in order. Still, it comes with more personal responsibility.
Pisces is an emotional Water sign, and is also of a mutable (adaptable, flowing, flexible) quality. To you, some change is okay–you adapt! In 2023, the outer planets and North Node either support you or step out of your way.
Areas of change and occasional disruption for you in 2023 tend to be studies, personal interests, friendship, your inner world, and communications.
This is a powerful year for finances and communications–in these areas, go big, but know your limits!
