Venus enters Pisces on March 12th, bringing the tremendous energy in this sign to a peak.
Venus in Pisces enlarges the scope of relationships, money and self-esteem. "Enlarge" means possibilities expand and resistance dissolves. This planet/sign combo increases romance, creativity, compassion, forgiveness, forgetfulness, susceptibility and victimization. Values and relationships shift, attractions materialize, money flows in and out. The line between magical romance and romantic martyr is blurred. What's the difference between acceptance and avoidance?
Venus is exalted in Pisces. She can express the purest love and most inspired creativity. There's also a touch of innocence (or naiveté) about her: she can make you forget about pain, consequences and patterns. Venus works best in this sign when expectations are released but boundaries remain intact.
March 14th is notable. Venus will square Mars in Sagittarius, at 3 degrees. Any aspect between Venus and Mars describes how wants are pursued and relationships (to self and others) are manifested. The square is a discordantly passionate aspect: Mars aggressively pursues Venus, which indicates chemistry, even if actions (Mars) overwhelm the target (Venus). The tension creates a "this must happen now" vibe. It's a wildly expansive influence, as new creative or romantic possibilities sizzle. Something amazing and juicy can appear.
But on the same day, there's also a square between Saturn in Sagittarius and Mercury in Pisces, at 16 degrees. Oh, Saturn. What would we do without your reminders of limits and responsibilities? The possibilities that Venus/Mars kick up will go arm in arm with reasons why you'll have to be cautious.
After Mars completes his Rx journey, there will be a repeat of the above scenario. Mars in Sag will square Venus on August 6th (at 1 degree) this time in Virgo. Mercury in Virgo will square Saturn (Rx) in Sag again, at 9 degrees. Same dynamic, but this time the details (Virgo) of the situation will be under scrutiny. With Venus and Mercury in Pisces, the possibilities will be under scrutiny.
