What’s Your Sign?

A Yiddish-inflected horoscope that’s equal parts astrology and menschy

Over at Tablet’s partner site, Jewcy, resident astrologer Emma Morris offers her latest monthly horoscope—a mix of astrology and Yiddishkeit (and Ru Paul quotes) to brighten up your Friday afternoon.

This month is all about Pisces, the water sign symbolized by two fish swimming in oppostie directions:

Fish-themed Judaic tales include Jonah and the whale and the Leviathan. In 6 B.C., a Jupiter-Saturn conjunction in Pisces even gave Jewish astrologers hope for a messiah.

Perhaps the most romantic and certainly the most intuitive of all the signs of the zodiac, you can be weak-willed in matters of the heart. Wise, sage givers of good advice, you are sensitive to beauty and can be overwhelmed by the feelings of others. Your heightened psychic awareness gives you a keen ability to suffer with others—this combined with your patience and listening skills makes you an excellent therapist and friend, but can have the ill effect of distancing you from your own life and feelings. With an innate receptiveness to everything that’s going on around you, it can be hard to see where others end and you begin.

My mom is such a Pisces. Check out the rest of the horoscopes here.
