Venus: goddess of art and romance, pleasure and beauty. Venus in Pisces cradles the soul, soft and malleable, ready to shift into whatever new form best captures light and love. Though Pisces is shy, her light draws people to her. We are all spiritual seekers longing for communion. As one, we learn and practice. Together we pursue the path of self-improvement, the path of the heart, the path of cooperation.
Pisces is the last sign in the zodiac, rainbow fins shining in the starlight. She is neither rational nor logical, but yielding, ethereal, otherworldly. Pisces swims beyond the physical plane, scales sparkling with seraphic wisdom, stretching and dissolving and blooming again, forever cycling through a phantasmagorical series of awakenings in the waters of perpetuity. With Venus in Pisces, there is no need for particulars – it is enough to be, to love without question. Look forward to sharing the company of people who love and understand you beyond what can be verbalized. Venus in Pisces reminds us of something we try to ignore: stripped of our bodies and outward identities, we share the same molten core, straight from the Source.
Some things we get to work on: confronting shadowy Pisces aspects like denial, deceit, or addiction. Bringing more creative energy to our social circle, especially through music and dance. Making spiritual practices more communal. Co-creating rituals. Taking care of one another, listening, doing the “little things” for others. This is a good time to volunteer, or spend a day in silence and observe. Experiment with small doses of medicinal mushrooms, make art, go for a long walk. Discuss your dreams, keep a dream journal. Can we be more compassionate, patient, flexible?
Pisces rules sleep, dreams and everything that come at the “end” of our day. If Pisces is the end, what comes next? The beginning! Aries rebirth! In February we’ll get a preview of this primordial fire (at least in our interpersonal life). Here we are more AWAKE, alive, energy rushing back after a long winter. Pisces transits tend to be highly emotional and confusing. But as the months progress, mind, body and spirit shall be renewed. Have patience, earthlings! You are so loved!
The very first day of Venus in Pisces (Jan 13) is going to be interesting. The Sun in Capricorn will be conjunct both Saturn and Pluto that morning. Sun, Saturn and Pluto all conjunct in Capricorn means it’s time to face reality. With Pluto involved, things get emotionally tense. It is so important to keep this in mind – do what you need in order to stay calm. The conjunction with Saturn will definitely help us stay grounded, but this influence can also be quite cold and rigid. The whole day is going to feel really serious – I think that’s the main takeaway. We are likely to be under immense pressure; for example, you may be trying to meet a deadline. No matter what, we will be focused and strong-willed – so strong-willed that we may employ controlling or manipulative behavior.
Aquarius season begins on Jan 20! Venus squares off with Mars in Sagittarius on Jan 26. This signals romantic or sexual impulsiveness. Passion and expectations run high, but reality may not live up to our dreams. This is an uncomfortable aspect – I don’t recommend socializing, and definitely no first dates! Sleep will be restless.
One day later on Jan 27, Venus will be conjunct Neptune at home in Pisces. This is a day to DANCE as Pisces does best. Any and all creative projects encouraged. Turn your head towards all things beautiful, romantic, and spiritual. I have to mention this every time with Neptune conjunctions: we will be so open and free under this influence that we will be more easily deceived. During this entire Pisces transit, we need to stay on guard and not give in to seductive opportunities without first examining them. I know that’s exactly what we don’t want to do – because it feels so marvelous to totally abandon ourselves to the Pisces flow – but if we coast along unaware, we eventually find ourselves in strange, confusing situations.
