VENUS IN PISCES: APRIL 27TH-MAY 23RD
Venus moves into her sign of exaltation last week and is conjunct Jupiter on April 30th during the solar eclipse. In general it brings a welcome relief from a difficult winter but the presence of Jupiter in Pisces with Neptune can lead to excessive indulgence, expansion, spiritual escapism or darker escapism with drugs or alcohol or sex. In Pisces, Venus, the ruler of women and relationships, brings out love, harmony, creativity, beauty and artistry.
Venus is a Guru planet in its own right and has an important role in materializing the spiritual essence of the human being and brings spirituality into the material world and in esoteric astrology it allows men to aspire after spiritual immortality and learn graceful manners, calmness, endurance, sociability and love of the arts. It is connected to wealth and Lakshmi, poetry, beautiful clothes, fine arts and music.
Venus is the teacher of the demons and in modern a term that means those stuck in material existence. Still Venus is the best of the benefics and seeks to bring spirituality to us after creating material abundance. While often connected to beauty and the senses, it is also a great teacher and like Jupiter has its own depth of wisdom. The Venus/Jupiter conjunction with its high energy and
teaching capabilities to soothe troubled souls and seething angers could bring more peace but it seems our politicians with Rahu in Aries are more interested in sending more weapons to Ukraine and supporting the military industrial complex rather than even talking about peace.
If you are Taurus rising, this is a really great time for you with an 11th house transit of your ascendant lord as it brings great new friends, fulfillment of desires and strong income.
If you are Libra rising, you will feel good but have to watch challenges from enemies and with health issues. Dual signs, Pisces, Gemini, Virgo and Sagittarius benefit from a Malava Yoga in transit with Venus exalted in an angular house supporting home, happiness, career.
Aries rising will have to watch overspending and expenditures and Scorpios may have challenges with children and investments. Results for other rising signs are not as spectacular.
For the most part the transit is unafflicted except for the tight Jupiter conjunction into April 3rd or so and this can increase desires for sensual pleasures and will increase spending. Leave your credit card at home if you go to the mall and watch that extra piece of cheesecake!
As always, every chart is so unique and if you are running a Venus period or sub-period
or have Venus in Pisces already, the energies will be more activated.
