Venus' Pisces ingress happens on January 3rd. Relationships, money, values and self-esteem are tinted with wistful magic. Pisces enhances your craving for something more. Pisces also draws your attention to the impermanence of everything.
This transit can sneak up on you. Like sipping weak spirits in the blue light of a recently extinguished Sun, your awareness shifts, gradually but unmistakably. Anything is possible (exalted romance). Nothing is possible (melancholy). There can be an all-encompassing desire for a person or thing. Or, you may simply want to release what hurts. Pisces simultaneously expands what you want while loosening your grip on what you have.
You can experience this transit as sacred love, swooning attraction, escape or loss. It depends on what's happening in your life. Specifically, in the Pisces area of your chart. Venus is exalted in this sign - love, attraction, compassion and sacrifice will be strengthened.
Mars' transit of Pisces has clued you in to which way the current is flowing. You'll reap the results (or rewards!) of your actions as Venus hits the degrees Mars activated. Venus in Pisces is about acceptance. However, this does not mean you have to allow yourself to be a victim. You don't have to dissolve your security or self-esteem. If the current is taking you in an unhappy direction - don't go there. Mars will be in Pisces until January 28th, so you'll still have one hand on the rudder.
Venus' ingress will be supported by a sextile to Mercury Rx (at 0 degrees Capricorn). On January 4th, Mercury Rx will reenter Sagittarius (another expansive sign). Her move into Pisces is connected to Mercury Rx's reviews and delays. Maybe there's an apology for a past wrong, or a second look at newly emerging possibilities. Mercury sextile Venus can put the undefined desire or loss into words. She conjoins the South Node on January 7th, and Mercury will station direct on January 8th. Finally, she conjoins Neptune on January 12th, and Mercury direct reenters Capricorn on the same day. Mercury's progress and clarification will be aligned with Venus' peak moments, just as Mercury's initial Rx was aligned with Mars' Pisces ingress (December 19th).
