Venus, the planet we most associate with relationship and love, spends four weeks in Pisces this year. As we expect with the sign of the fish, things can go to extremes – and move in several directions at once.
Pisces is considered the exaltation of Venus, the sign in which her energies are best expressed. Venus in Pisces is more about agape, or compassionate, universal love, than it is about eros, or personal, erotic love. Venus in Pisces may be more inclined to wear a nun’s wimple than a beauty crown, more likely to offer alms to the poor than her arms in an embrace.
With Mars in Pisces, we’ll be tempted to go to extremes in all areas of life, from politics to sexuality. It’s an intense energy that can push us forward at top speed, only to realize that we’re lost.
