Venus in Pisces - Inhale Peace, Exhale Ease
On Thursday January 26 Venus moves into Pisces until February 20th. This is a much needed reprieve after being under the cold and drying influence of Saturn in Aquarius. Venus and Saturn don’t really see eye to eye on most things. Venus has dominion over the life nurturing properties of art, beauty, ease, and relational enjoyment. She wants to connect and make things grow. Like the Empress card in the Tarot, she represents the richness of abundance and living a life in full bloom. Saturn, on the other hand is the planet of the cold climb of responsibility, unrelenting pressure, and isolation. In a nutshell, Saturn really cramps her style.
Now that she is freely moving away from Saturn’s influence, she can take a refreshing plunge into oceanic Pisces over the next month. Planets are better equipped in certain signs based on how well they resonate with the terrain of that part of the zodiac. Venus is exalted in the sign of Pisces meaning she is like a celebrated guest in the house of Pisces. Her ability to harmonize is celebrated and her love of beauty has an outlet to restore ease through healing connection.
This is important. I am a firm believer in pleasure and joy as tools for self healing and improving any area of our lives. Pleasure and joy help us find meaning and act as loving support as we reach for our goals. Discipline and structure on their own will only lead to drought if we don’t have the nourishing rains of relaxation, pleasure, and enjoyment to create the right environment for new growth.
Venus is Pisces is loving balm. Depending on which house she is moving through, Venus brings more ease, flow, and healing to that part of your life.

Look for your rising sign
Aries Ascendant - With Venus transiting your 12th house, you are being invited to deepen your relationship with the numinous. Isolation is sometimes necessary to quiet the mind enough to be open to the voice of your higher self. Think of this month as a retreat from outward relationships. You may feel fatigued by the needs of others, with your own repressed needs knocking on your door demanding your attention. Do your best to find pockets of solitude to give voice to these needs. Learn to listen to the whispers of this voice so that it doesn’t have to scream in order to get your attention going forward.
Taurus Ascendant - With Venus transiting your 11th house, you are being called to invest your energy and attention into your social network. Now is the time to nurture and water your friendships and other social contacts. Call up that old friend that you just simply lost touch with. Who cares if you haven’t spoken in months or even years! They may have been too embarrassed by letting the time pass, that they have been waiting for you to make the first move.
