Venus is transiting Pisces from April 5 – May 2, 2022
Venus is transiting Pisces – what does that mean?
The planet of love, is finally leaving the cool and detached sign of Aquarius and moving into Pisces. After the harsh battles during her lengthy dance with Mars, moving into Pisces comes as a relief.
The sign of the Fishes is a water sign, and thus, altogether much more slippery. In Pisces, Venus’ conveys a sense of oceanic compassion. It fills every last crack in the reef, every shell, every underwater cave, like liquid copper filling a mould.
The idea of the mould is a very fitting image for Venus in Pisces. The boundaries of the ocean are forever shifting and changing. To make the effects of Venus in Pisces visible, we need to give her a shape to fill.
Venus is generally interested in pleasure and beauty, but there is more to it than eating chocolates and doting on flowers. Venus in Pisces sees the world via her mirror neurons and is extremely sensitive to subtle emotional ripples. Sensitivity can be a helpful trait, but may also be confusing if it blurs the boundaries between self and non-self.
Venus is moving direct again and has picked up speed. The effects of this transit are more fleeting and may manifest more like moods or happy incidents. The most significant aspect she makes while transiting Pisces is the conjunction with Neptune on April 27. Beware, that if something looks too good to be true, it may not be true.
