Sweet Pisces, this year is one of immense connections and growth in relationships. Your dreamy and intuitive world extends towards new friendships and partnerships, making for an exciting birthday month and 2020. As you experience an amazing glow up take up new projects that speak to your imaginative and artistic qualities. In fact, this is a great way to seek collaborative arrangements with your growing sense of community. Don’t get too wild (two great projects are better than one hundred) but think big! With all these harmonious vibes and your non-judgmental inclinations, it will be easy to set adrift forgetting to prioritize your needs in favor of the group. But don't forget dear Pisces, YOU are a person too, whole with borders and boundaries, and that must be remembered in this open period. Trust your instincts here and when things feel off—be it a project, person, location, or relationship—affirm yourself and your intuition by sidestepping out of there. There’s plenty of fish in the sea, and for you Pisces you already know that flexibility and openness is the key to success.

In celebration of your magnetizing force, here are a few spots to experience Los Angeles this birthday month. Happy Birthday to our last sign of the zodiac. Enjoy 2020.

Head over to Night + Market Sahm (2533 Lincoln Blvd, Venice 90291) for delicious, spicy, and flavor-packed Thai favorites on the Westside. Located minutes from the Pacific Ocean, Night + Market Sahm is the perfect place to share a meal with friends and to enjoy that ideal, salty airflow from the beach. With an incredible natural wine selection (don't overdo it, my lovely water sign) and a variety of vegetables and seafood, you can't go wrong.

For some much-needed nature, visit Descanso Gardens in La Cañada Flintridge (1418 Descanso Dr, La Cañada Flintridge 91011). For your birthday season, expect to see a range of blooms, from camellias, magnolias, and cherry trees to daffodils, tulips, and lilacs. Treat yourself to a botanical respite - perhaps bring along a book or pop in some good music while you wander around the grounds for an afternoon.

To cap off your season, enjoy an evening of cocktails and jazz at Vibrato Grill (2930 Beverly Glen Cir, Los Angeles 90077), owned by Grammy Award-winning native Angeleno Herb Albert. Music is never far from you Pisces, and Vibrato is an excellent reminder of why you love the city in the first place.
