Venus in Pisces ~ March 26/27 to April 20, 2011

Pisces via Photobucket kslovesks album

The planet of love, Venus, concludes her transit in Aquarius on March 26 (March 27 for others). She then joins Chiron and Mars, as she begins her visit in the compassionate sign of Pisces. 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. Be mindful of not neglecting the needs of the self for the sake of others, however. It's easy to overlook our own needs when busy caring those dear to us.

Venus in Pisces also reminds us 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 where 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.

Venus enters Pisces on March 26 at 11:53 p.m. PST / March 27 2:53 a.m. EST and will stay through to April 20th. While in Pisces, Venus will align with the following celestial bodies (all dates reflect North America Pacific time zone; allow +/-2 days for life span of influence):

  • March 29 ~ Venus conjunct Chiron. With yesterday's Jupiter-Saturn opposition still lingering, painful realizations regarding love or money may be abundant. Don't be too disheartened. Instead, let your resolve be strengthened to find a release/resolution to situations. No more wandering in the land of denial. Face fears/losses/pain head on. Come to terms with what is and move on.
  • April 2 ~ Venus sextile Pluto. Uncovering underlying issues. Looking beneath the surface for understanding. Unmasking hidden truths. Transformational love. Also today, Mars and the Moon enter Aries.
  • April 7 ~ Venus quincunx Saturn-rx. A dose of reality, especially with issues regarding relationships or finances. Relationships built on solid foundation and with healthy communication would most likely fare better. Underlying uncertainty regarding commitment levels or where things stand are some issues that may surface at this time.

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.
