(Below is an edited, re-posting of a blog that I wrote last year on Venus in Pisces.)

“Intense love does not measure. It just gives.” Mother Teresa.

Relationship planet Venus, slips into dreamy, mystical Pisces on March 27, 2011 (at 2:53 am EDT), where she stays until April 21, 2011.  Venus represents our “urge for love.”  It shows us what we are passionate about, what we value.  Her passage through the twelve signs of the zodiac gives us an insightful glimpse into our ever-changing passions and values.

Venus’ love expression is exalted in Neptune-ruled Pisces.  Here she finds herself capable of unconditional love and divine compassion. With idealistic Neptune as her mentor, Venus in Pisces can be quite spiritual, and hopeful.  She wants to believe the very best of people. She characteristically gives her heart away without thought of what she’s going to get in return.

Neptune also rules the creative urge, so natural artist, Venus in Pisces, can be very romantic, and dream up all kinds of imaginative ways to express herself here. She is especially fond of self-expression through poetry, music, dance, photography, and art.

Venus in Pisces does have a soft spot, some might even refer to it as a “blind spot,” for falling for types “who need rescuing.” More fragile types are naturally attracted to Venus in Pisces because of the warmth and caring that she magically exudes.

Because Neptune also signifies illusion and fantasy,Venus in Pisces tends to idolize or glamorize others, instead of seeing people as they are. Venus in Pisces also longs for total submergence into a relationship. Neptune’s Venus wants to be romantically swept off her feet and to give herself entirely. She does not want any boundaries coming between her and the object of her affection (Neptune is known as the “Great Dissolver”). Of course, when we do seek total immersion in a love relationship, there can be some hazards, including potentially a loss of our own identity.

“Make me immortal with a kiss.” Christopher Marlowe

In the event a love relationship does not pan out, Venus in Pisces can become very disillusioned and disheartened.  Her heightened sensitivity also makes dealing with the pain of a break-up or rejection, that much harder. Unfortunately, she often blames herself for any failures in a relationship.  Even if someone treated her disrespectfully, she may still have that person on a pedestal. Again, it’s about that tendency to not want to see others as they are.  It’s a reflection of Neptune’s intrinsic nature to want to look at relationships through rose-colored glasses. Also, it’s part of the “serve or suffer” Pisces martyr-complex that many of us are all too familiar with.

So, in summary, with Venus’ passage through softening, sympathetic Pisces, the next few weeks, what we may find is that we are acting with more of a tender-heart now, perhaps more able to graciously accept others on an emotional level. Also, perhaps more in tune with others’ needs. Too, we may be more inclined to let down our emotional guards a bit more, which could be a very good thing if it results in forging more healthy, positive connections.

On the shadow side again, we will not want to delude ourselves into seeing things in a relationship, that are not really there. Of course, this tendency is always a risk in the realm of romance, but especially now with Venus tucked away in more vulnerable, wishful Pisces. Too, we may want to make sure that we hold other people accountable for their words and actions now. Make them “walk their talk” before giving our hopeful hearts away.
