We know how special your birthday is, so we’re sharing a monthly run-down of everything you should wear, read, watch, and do to celebrate your big day. Tune in every month as we share a guide to having the best birthday month, all according to your zodiac sign.
Rihanna, Drew Barrymore, Lupita Nyong’o, Simone Biles, Olivia Rodrigo—this is only just a handful of the famous Pisces queens of Hollywood who inspire us on the daily. Pisces is full of wisdom (they’re said to take on the lessons of every sign before them as the final sign of the zodiac), empathy, and creativity. Like all water signs, their emotions are both their biggest strength and weakness, depending on how they leverage them.
Celebrate and spend some time with yourself this season, Pisces, by reading, watching, wearing, and doing these things:
What to Read
London competes in a TV cooking contest to become the first openly nonbinary contestant, but along the way, they meet Dahlia, their clumsy, chaotic competition who forces them to fall. For the Pisces who can't stop binge-watching cooking shows and is craving a sweet rom-com, you've met your match.

What to Wear
A Pisces finds a way to combine boldness with comfort, often opting for statement prints that don’t require too much effort to put outfits together without compromising on their personal style.
What to Do
1. Write a love letter
When was the last time you really told someone how much they mean to you? Do it the old-fashioned way by sending a love letter to someone important to you. Whether you go the snail mail route or opt for the digital age (even a DM counts!), remind someone of all the ways they make your life better.
2. Update your resume and LinkedIn
As stated above, one of the biggest strengths of a Pisces is their empathy. We’re often taught that soft skills like relationship building, friendliness, and emotional intelligence aren’t important in the workplace—and we’re here to tell you that’s wrong. Leverage these strengths by finding ways to incorporate them in your resume and LinkedIn, whether you’re job hunting or not.
3. Give yourself a digital detox
Because Pisces is so empathetic, they can easily get bogged down by other people’s emotions. It’s cliché, but you can’t pour into anyone else’s cup until you’ve filled up your own. Give yourself a day away from social media and texting, and instead, have a day all to yourself. Maybe you’ll do some journaling, have a spa day, or just binge-watch a new show (like the ones above!).
