BEHOLD the awesomeness that a Google image search on “Pisces” bringeth forth. (3/29: After two weeks I had to put that picture behind a link, because as awesome as it was, it was starting to really bug me and hurt my brain.)
And this is exactly how I plan to spend the day, hanging out vacantly in my underwater disco with my koi and my jewels. Let me also contemplate the prophecies of the coming year, according to the greatest astrological wisdom the internet can offer (for free):
I found this one last night, since it runs in a New Zealand paper and is therefore from the future:
Expect the unexpected in 2008. Random events could occur and whether they are unusual or untested, you might be immediately aware of the benefits. Act on left-field ideas or crazy hunches without hesitation.
Random events could occur. I might be immediately aware of them. I could be somewhere in a situation where possibly I’d be compelled to act or react in a particular manner and WHOA! I have a crazy hunch this one will come true. The future does not lie!
Cafe Astrology says:
2008 will be a Number Eight year for you. Ruled by Saturn. This is a year of power and accomplishment. Actively seeking to expand, taking educated risks, and moving forward are highlighted. This is a year of opportunity, particularly in the material and business world, and opportunities need to be seized. It’s generally not a year to find a new love partner, simply because the focus is on the material world and your place in the world. This is a problem-solving year in which you can expect real, tangible results. Advice – take action, plan ahead, seize opportunities.
This is a pretty decent horoscope that appears to have been written by the Kellogg School of Management. I will put this into Powerpoint and review this at least once every quarter of this Number Eight Year, Mr. Saturn! Yes, sir!
Here is what Holiday Mathis says:
The experiences of this year help you connect your heart and head so you can live more fully in the moment. You’re popular and in demand over the next 10 weeks. Feel out situations before committing yourself. Give yourself permission to do what seems like fun! Profits soar in July. Relationships tighten in August. Libra and Aries adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 14, 3, 25, 31 and 17.
I’m popular! And I should have fun! I am giving myself permission to totally buy into this one. Though August sounds a little kinky, what with Libra and Aries and possibly the numbers 14 and 25 getting involved. I should really feel that out first. If you do not hear from me for 3 days in August please call 17 cops. Thanks!
Finally, the always mindblowing Lovepsychic.com weighs in:
Happy tremendous Thursday! Be conservation in all your actions today! A touchy Moon/Uranus contact creates chaotic situations. Maintain a flexible attitude and keep an open mind. Last minute changes come out of nowhere and people can have a indifferent or non cooperative attitude. Donâ€™t expect too much when it comes to team work or group projects. Itâ€™s best to remain independent and solo today! If today is your birthday, happy birthday! You are a Pisces who is wonderfully creative. Sunday is your best day. The Moon is in the sign of Gemini. Best signs for the day are Gemini and Libra. Your dream symbol for the day is, “to dream of new shoes.”
Why, yes, Love Psychic, I will be conservation in all my actions! I will not be squander. Or liberalation. Or….whatever you mean. Also, should I just avoid touchy Moon/Uranus contact altogether, or just make sure I’ve had a few drinks first, or what? Please clarify! In the meantime I shall symbolically dream of dreaming of new shoes, which I sure as hell hope are more than metaphors, because I really fucking need new shoes.

Happy Birthday Wendy! And tell the Moon to stay away from Uranus.
OH MAN can it really be a year since the last fabulous installment… happy happy happy birthday Wendy, I hope you have a goodun, despite needing to be wary of the Moon and Saturn and Uranus all at the same time!
Hope you had a fulfilling day of aquatic leisure.
Happy birthday, Wendy!
happy birthday to the coolest cat of them all! i love reading your stuff.
I hate when last minute changes come out of nowhere.
Also – where is that picture from? I desperately need to see what the Scorpio version of that awesomeness looks like.
Also – omg, it’s my friend Ann’s birthday too! She’s getting tulips from Whole Foods from me – I hope you get something equally as awesome today. Happy Birthday!
happy birthday to you!
Happy Birthday. I too am a Pisces. I have to say, those “crystals” are flashy!
Happy belated b-day! 🙂
You deserve all those under water jewels and more!!! Happy Birthday.
Happy Birthday from NZ! You can count yourself lucky – the NZ Herald horriblescope is notoriously grumpy.
Hey, Happy Birthday, Wendy!
I can’t read horoscopes anymore without thinking, “Me and 1/12 of the rest of the world’s population.” Takes the shine right off of ’em.
Well speaking of RANDOM events….. Today is MY birthday, MAY 22, and my name is also WENDI…. AND it’s THURSDAY!
I thought this was a riot!
Although RANDOM is common in my world- synchro- not coincidence. Don’t believe in accidents or coincidence. It’s all connected somehow- as are we- the inhabitants of the big blue marble, on land, air, water or ice.
Life is strange.
Wendy, I hope your birthday was absolutely STELLAR- I also like to hang out with my fish, animals and definitely LOTS of JEWELS!
I think we should celebrate the thought of celebrating our birthdays together in the same fashion!
Have a fabulous year with all the health, happiness, and wealth you could wish for!

OH.. and WHY did I leave my paw print here?
I was googling the same Birthday stuff you were on YOUR birthday- only I’m doing it on MY birthday!
And it was all right there in your post! Well except that I’m going into a 1 year.
8 year is awesome though, and hopefully you’ll be able to find all the aquatic jewels you heart desires- if there’s a good year to do it- it’s an 8 year!
