Venus in Pisces


'Venus is the principle of pleasure and desire, reflecting our aesthetic values and tastes. It is our impulse to relate to others, indicating how we show love and affection and how we create common bonds.’ Carole Taylor - Astrology

Venus is the Great Goddess: for the Sumerians she was Inanna, in Babylon Ishtar and in Greece Aphrodite. She is The Goddess of beauty, sexual love and fertility.

'Venus is the principle of desire, love, beauty, value; the impulse and capacity to attract and be attracted, to love and be loved, to seek and create beauty and harmony, to engage in social and romantic relations, sensuous pleasure, artistic and aesthetic experience; the principle of Eros and the Beautiful; Aphrodite, the Goddess of love and beauty.' Richard Tarnas - Cosmos and Psyche

‘Traditionally Venus was associated with the moist and warming power that is productive of the life force, and signifies, desire, love, beauty, cleanliness, purity, and religious worship.’ Demetra George - Ancient Astrology

‘Venus Principles: Impulses toward love and friendship, harmony and pleasure, grace and beauty, forces of attraction. The Venus archetype manifests through our yearnings to love and be loved, to enjoy ourselves and bring pleasure to others and to reach out in friendship and connection. Venus rules the power of attraction, our aesthetic taste and sensuality and our capacities to act in graceful and harmonious ways with the world around us.

Venus also represents our feelings of intimacy toward the divine principle as the Beloved, and the potential for ecstatic union with it as we regain our lost wholeness.’ Renn Butler - The Archetypal Universe


Enter the realm of Pisces, a mutable water sign traditionally ruled by Jupiter, that plunges us into the transcendental, and reminds us we are all one.

'Pisces is the domicile of Jupiter, exaltation of Venus, and the sign of the Fish.

In this sign, although the darkness is still dominant, the season of Winter is transforming and yielding to Spring, where the light side of the year will take over.

Jupiter rules the signs where the light begins and where the light takes over.

The following themes are associated with Pisces:

Hope, faith, and redemption

Union, divinity, and materiality

Visions, dreams, and delusions

Divine discontent, divine weakness

Sinners, saints, and salvation

Pisces is a sign related to the restless emergence of light from within the darkness.'

Adam Elenbaas - Nightlight Astrology

As the final sign of the zodiac, Pisces encapsulates the essence of culmination and transcendence. Pisceans are the mystics, drifting between the veils of imagination and the tangible world. The watery realm of Pisces invites us to surrender to the ebb and flow of emotions, to explore the depths of our subconscious, and to embrace the intangible threads that connect us all.

In Pisces the boundaries between the self and the collective dissolve. With its intuitive prowess, Pisces invites us to navigate the vast ocean of empathy, understanding, and compassion. Gods here prompt us to reflect, to delve into the recesses of our souls, and to seek spiritual enlightenment. They guide us to appreciate the beauty of impermanence, to let go of rigid structures, and to immerse ourselves in the serenity of surrender.
