On February 2-28 Venus moves into the sign of Pisces. This is the favored sign of Venus and the place where it is considered exalted. We can learn some lessons about the nature of love and human relationships just by studying a little bit of Vedic astrology. Why is Venus exalted in Pisces of all signs? Pisces is a very spiritual sign that sees all of humanity as one in the ultimate truth. Pisces does not see the differences between people. So when Venus, the heart and relationship planet, goes into Pisces it is easier to stay in touch with that truth.
This is a time when we get a boost in our understanding of relationships in our life. Pisces is also a sign that likes to give to others. A common tendency in relationships is for people to care more about getting something from the relationship. Venus in Pisces however seeks to give love whether it is received back or not. This is often difficult, but if we could do this it would transform us all.
This year Saturn is aspecting Venus in Pisces. Saturn in Capricorn wants to make things practical and not just get lost in beautiful Piscean philosophy. What better way to make things practical than to “practice” unconditional love this month. I’m sure the planet will give you LOTS of opportunity for this (LOL!)
Personally I have found that the best way to do this is to practice compassion. This life is not always easy and so often does not give us our way. Can we focus on what we are giving rather than receiving this month? Can we make this a practice in our relationships? Also can we stay connected with the SOURCE of love in our giving and feel that we are connected with something much greater than our own small differences. I would love to hear from you and know how you would like to make a practice of unconditional love this month.
