Venus in Pisces ~ Feb. 11 to Mar. 7, 2010

Venus, the planet of love, leaves the friendly, eccentric sign of Aquarius and joins Jupiter to transit the compassionate, dreamy sign of Pisces from February 11 to March 7. It is said that Venus is exalted (best placement/greatest strength) in Pisces. Perhaps, it's because Pisces has the capacity for unconditional love.

Venus governs how we relate (to others, to our selves), what we value in life (people, things, precepts), how we determine our worth (personal and material). Pisces governs the imagination, dreams, the spiritual/psychological realm and how we are all connected. At best, Venus in Pisces is intuitive, sensitive, loving, caring, romantic, idealistic. At worst, too sacrificial, weak-willed, secretive, too idealistic.

During her stay in Pisces, we are reminded that true love is without conditions. Compassion awakens the humanity in us and shows us that there, too, is purpose and use for kindness in the world. We are also reminded that as we each follow our own paths, we are "connected" in this goal to live our lives, despite our journeys having different paths. No matter we're we have been or where we are now or where we are going, each of us have experienced what it's like to win/lose, to be excited/disappointed, to be content/want more, to be happy/sad, to love, to hurt, to heal.

Tap into your spiritual self while Venus is in Pisces. We are all given intuition in varying degrees and intensity. Some use it more than others and are, therefore, more adept at identifying signs when they are presented. Others have such great intuitive powers that it is simply a part of their everyday, every moment. Whether you have little or much or something in between, celebrate it, make use of it, nurture it.

While Venus is in Pisces, she will make alignments with the following celestial bodies(all dates reflect North America Eastern time zone; give +/-2 days for life span of influence):
  • February 14 to 15 ~ Venus quincunx Saturn-rx and Mars-rx plus trine Pluto. With Mercury trine Saturn-rx while also oppose Mars-rx the past two days, this Valentine's day may have a heavier tone than some might prefer. Relationships built on solid foundation and with healthy communication would most likely fare better. Underlying uncertainty regarding commitment levels or where things stand or whether this is even love are some issues that may surface during these few days.
  • February 16 ~ Venus conjunct Jupiter. A lucky, happy day. Enjoy.
  • March 3 ~ Venus conjunct Uranus. Surprises. Change of heart. Compassion. Random acts of kindness. Humanitarian efforts.

What significance do planets, signs, and houses have in astrology? Planets have the function, the job to do. The style/manner they will use get that job done is defined by the zodiac sign they occupy. Where in our life the job gets done is determined by the house the planet occupies/transits. So, when Mars (aggression) is in Aries (bold), he is more assertive than when he is in Cancer (sensitive). When traveling through the 10th house (professional life), he may bring his confidence and motivation in matters relating to our career. While in the 11th house (friendships), we may be more inclined to having our social calendar packed with activities. Having the foresight for what may be coming up or receiving confirmation on what may be happening now are ways astrology can be beneficial ... as above, so below.
