What does the Venus in Pisces transit mean?

The mundane becomes magical as love goddess Venus flows through Pisces, the sign of fantasy.

To tap this transformative energy, convert your daily routines into rituals. Rather than autopiloting from coffeepot to computer, begin your mornings with journaling, meditation and other soul-expanding activities.

This is an excellent cycle for doing any sort of creative work.

The downside of a Venus in Pisces transit…

It can drive up gullibility, especially in love and friendships.

Pisces is the master of illusions. While this might work well for composing romantic poetry, it can make business dealings and trust-building dodgy. Before you sign a contract or invite someone into your private world, get to know people’s backgrounds. Not everyone is “as advertised” now.

The reason you may struggle to keep one foot planted in reality is Venus is “exalted” in the sign of the Fish, meaning its alluring powers are extra potent during this four-week phase. Try to keep one pinky toe planted in the reality zone!

Your Love Life with Venus in Pisces: Triggers and triumphs

Pisces rules the deep subconscious. Don’t be surprised if some old triggers and ancestral patterns activate while Venus flows through Pisces. If that happens, don’t freak out; in fact, it might be an important litmus test for your relationship’s longevity.

Sooner or later, a romantic partner is going to discover your wounds and scars. And when that happens, you want someone who won’t run away because (gasp!) you’re human. During this compassionate cycle, “trauma-informed dating” can deepen understanding.

Red flag, though: Boundaries can blur during this hazy Venus cycle. Watch out for trauma-bonding—a toxic cycle of connecting through abusive behavior such as love-bombing and gaslighting.

Single? Run the background searches (and take your time!) to avoid falling head over red soles for someone who isn’t 100 percent available or reliable.

Coupled? You may need to do some forgiveness work or process old pain that’s blocking intimacy with your partner. The good news is, during a Venus in Pisces transit, you can really go deep. Therapy—couples’ or individual—can be especially effective since everyone’s emotional armor tends to be softer while Venus is in this sensitive water sign.

Venus in Pisces can spur a romantic renaissance

If you reduce your speed, this enchanting cycle can spur a romantic renaissance. Relaxing can put you in a receptive state, ideal for creating magic and enjoying heart-opening moments.

Romance is everyone’s d’etre, and while in Pisces, Venus serves it with all the trappings: fresh-cut flowers, love sonnets, candlelight dining and moonlit walks. You could spark a connection over a shared interest in a particular genre of art and music. (“Oh, you’re a vaporwave fan, too?”)

Similar spiritual pursuits can also be the glue for couples while the love planet is in Pisces. We’re not telling you to go cruising at that meditation circle, but we aren’t telling you not to either. (Tastefully, respectfully, of course.) Should that soulmate vibe spark up, “namastay” a little longer to chat and strategically socialize.

Since Pisces skews passive, don’t go for the full-court press during this cycle. Instead, artfully weave your gifts of empathy with an intuitive understanding of what turns people on. One soulfully sexy gaze from you might be all it takes to set off the fireworks.
