Horoscope versus reality, a little mix of astrology and journaling; let’s see if what the stars say aligns with my reality. Here’s ep. 5, two whole weeks, May 11-24. Source: I used the horoscope of the AstroTwins on www.astrostyle.com for this article.
More than any other sign, according to the horoscope, Pisces feel the heaviness of alienation during the pandemic, which could bring up deep emotions that could surprise even myself. This was spot on – I started the week feeling really down and worried about tons of things, without there being a clear reason. One night without too much sleep and everything in my mind seemed a little darker than usual.
On Thursday, things started to look up again. Again, my horoscope provided some good guidance, suggesting me to take a detox from everything online, as it can be a bit overwhelming for my sensitive sign. I spent the weekend offline as much as possible by reading, painting, running and using my phone mainly to listen to the De Man en de Maan podcast (I’d highly recommend if you’re Dutch, it’s a great story).
A more domestic flow started on May 20th, my horoscope told me. I’m not sure if I could be in a more domestic flow than I already was, because I feel like all my time is spent in isolation and I’m feeling a bit tired of that. Now I finally had my feelings more under control, my emotions could get the best of me again, my horoscope said. Although the day wasn’t the correct one, this was true for another one this week. However, the emotions should lead to a deeper understanding, which I actually think is actually happening. Isn’t the accuracy of my horoscope becoming creepy?
I spent my Thursday outdoors with my boyfriend. We cycled to the forest, went for a long walk, continued cycling to a lake, watched the boats for a bit and on the way back we got ourselves a very nice ice cream outdoors. The first one of the year, in May, can you believe that. A very chill weekend followed – nothing special, just taking it easy, mostly at home (of course). I did see my friends after a long time and it was nice, it felt so normal to hang out again and I think I really needed that. My horoscope had nothing more interesting to say; nothing that made a lot of sense and nothing that made no sense at all.
