The BIRTH of VENUS by BOTTICELLI 1486
The transition from the Divine Feminine in her Amazon warrioress energy; fiery, masculine Mars, rules Aries, which has been and will be again, defensive, aggressive, head strong, independent, and spontaneous while Venus is in Mars, ruled Aries.
Now the moods change drastically into Feminine, watery, psychic, emotional, super sensitive dreamy Pisces where Venus is Exalted. Things will feel very different over the next few weeks. Venus in PISCES brings up love addictions as well as all other kinds of addictions to our attention as well.
On April 15 VENUS TURNS DIRECT @ 26 degrees PISCES exactly conjunct to CHIRON the WOUNDED HEALER and in square to SATURN which wil also be RETROGRADE at the GALACTIC CENTER at 27 degrees SAGITTARIUS. The turning points of all retrograde and Direct planets are when they are the strongest. Take NOTE of that date, which falls in the middle of EASTER weekend and during Passover.
On April 28 VENUS re-enters ARIES again, now moving DIRECT. Forward march until JUNE 6th when Venus enters her home sign of TAURUS. That is the time of new manifestation.
Check out where these degrees VENUS traverses in your Natal chart.
While VENUS is in PISCES again, as she was on January 3rd, old friends, lovers, issues, feelings, dreams addictions and issues may return. You may find yourself reflecting on someone, a deceased loved one, a past lover or friend. An old dream or project that you didn’t finish can now be reworked. Old lovers or friends may also reappear. Venus first entered ARIES Feb. 3rd and turned RETROGRADE at 13 degrees ARIES March 4th. Think back about how this correlates into your life now..
As Venus moves between the Masculine sign of Aries and her own exalted sign for the first 5 months of 2017, we are reintegrating a new cycle of the integration of Male and Female energies into the Feminine.
With VENUS in PISCES the values, emotions, feelings and sensitivity to psychic energies, for compassion and forgiveness, take precedence even if they are only felt on the unconscious realms, in our dreams or in our reflections and meditations.
Dive deep into the ocean of divine love which is Venus’s birthplace as well as all life on planet earth.
Five things to do while Venus is RETROGRADE in PISCES
- SPIRITUAL BOUNDARIES AND DREAM As intuition and dreaming is enhanced pay attention to your hunches, the subtle feelings, and remember the need for spiritual boundaries and protection. Do pay close attention to you night dreams, record them, and incubate them through intention, meditate on them. Lucid dreaming, seeing Soul mates and future lovers, friends, and help meets may appear in your dreams. Note this.
- SOUL MATES
2. Many people may meet their SOUL MATES while Venus is Retrograde in Pisces, it’s an ancient tradition in VEDIC, Indian classical astrology. Modern Tropical astrology sees Retrograde planets as disadvantaged. Retrograde planets are bigger in the sky, thus the very literal idea that they are stronger. Focus on calling in your soul mate.
3. RELEASE OLD TOXIC RELATIONSHIPS AND ADDICTIONS
Venus in PISCES can bring up old Addictions and temptations of all kinds, love, sex, drugs, alcohol, shopping, avoidance and being in denial. This is the perfect time to go to rehab, and work through those old toxic karmic patterns. Heal yourself and cut out all of the emotional leeches you have allowed in your life. Let go of old toxic relationships on all levels, most especially internalized ones and eliminate all actions which further the victimhood role. Be compassionate with yourself first. You can forgive the others later.
4. DEEP SPIRITUAL HEALING AND CLEANSING
Spiritually you will find you need to be a recluse, as the 12th sign of Pisces is naturally. It is easy to get overwhelmed with feeling everyone else’s feelings while Venus is in PISCES. Make sure you have proper psychic boundaries. Going on a yoga meditation or a spiritual retreat near water would be ideally timed for Venus in Pisces energy. Washing away old abusive emotions, using water as a spiritual baptism is highly recommended. Drink lots of water while Venus is in PISCES to literally be in harmony with the elements. Ritual cleansing through rebirthing and bathing in mineral waters would also be recommended. Use Himalyan crystals salts, Epsom salts, rose water, crystals and the like and soak away your “sins.”
5.This is also a wonderful time for all creative people, visual artists, musicians, singers, poets, actresses, etc. A play, or painting, may be re-run or re shown. Allow your soul to express itself through writing, dance, singing, toning, playing and painting. Cretaivity is the Source as well as self love. Connect to the healing unconditional love which we are all born from and will return to. We never actually leave it.
Venus in PISCES is a time of completing old DREAMS. Relationships that have ended during Venus Retrograde need to be mourned, and tears will fall easier with Venus in Pisces.
