You didn't think I was going to let Valentine's Day pass without a little talk about Venus now did you?
On February 11, Venus moved into Pisces, that wonderful sign that really symbolizes our connection to the cosmic unconscious - the universe - whatever you call the great goo of spiritual origins. I love when Venus is in Pisces - because it is a time of spiritual love. There is nothing superficial about Pisces - it is a deeply mystical water sign that demands that we search our soul for meaning.
With the horrible weather we have been having and the current economic conditions, it is more likely that people will want to forgo a materially oriented Valentine's Day and make more soulful, more meaningful gestures toward their loved ones. If they don't, both partners will feel empty and dissatisfied at the end of the day.
Venus in Pisces is a time to go beyond the mask and make true connections. It is a time of seeking the spiritual connections we have with one another....it is also a great time for joint past life regressions and an examination of joint astrological charts to find our karmic connections.
One of my favorite Venus Pisces people by birth is Mikhail Baryshnikov, a man who in his sixties, still dances with grace, beauty and magic that seems otherworldly. Every time I see him leap from the stage, I think he is trying to reach the Piscean heavens but it is his soulfulness and depth of performances that truly epitomizes the meaning of Pisces.
