Venus Exultant

Filed in Venus

Titian

Venus is now in Pisces – where she is Exalted.  Mars is still in Pisces – where he is not best placed but rather more thoughtful.  Venus & Mars meet up in late Feb – at one degree of Aries. This is going to be epic.

For more, see the Daily Mystic email for Wednesday, sent out to subscribers approx seven hours ago.  Click the link for a look even if you are not a subscriber, both more info and to serve as a sample of that Mon to Fri bit of business looks like.

If you’re Venus-sensitive, you will already be feeling HIGH & mighty sensual-strong, a lot more measured about whatever situation is in play (or not in play) within your artistic and romantic life.   Venus in the sign of her exaltation is always an in general good omen for true lovers, art, attracting resources and beauty.  Venus is the major Muse Planet and traditionally the mistress of magic.

For an old-style Venus house-witchery “cure”, make sure your mirrors are gleaming and clean.

And for the rest of Jan, Venus squares Saturn: See your Horoscopes and that D,M link above.

Who now feels more sparkling and self-assured?

Venus in Pisces felt when Pisces bestie checks up on me via social media message after 8 months. We have the ability to just pick up whenever and wherever we want. Love her to bits but needed space to do my own thing and get my feet on the ground after a four year degree. I’ve realised I’ve stopped caring about friends as much as before. Even though Jupiter is teams natal Venus in 11th. I hope I wasn’t caring before in a selfish way…it was more about me then them. But I really don’t want my heart broken in… Read more »

I feel this. This week I put a whole anti-Winter Blues regime into effect, It involves a pot of narcissus on my windowsill, roses on my desk, a million florist accounts to follow on Instagram, Weleda wild rose oil in my bath, and Frederic Malle’s Une Fleur de Cassie in heavy perfume rotation.

I want to curl up inside a giant flower and sleep it off until springtime.

Since I can’t — the mirrors. Got it. Doing that now.

Bring on Venus in Pisces…she can sit next to Mars, Venus, Neptune, Eros and Psyche lining up on my 7th house sun-Saturn-Merc plus Chiron returning and conj natal Psyche in the 8th…. surely this has got to make some magic for me??? Holy fuq, I don’t want to miss this, whatever it is! I feel like I should be doing some kind of love witchery spell. Come on, universe!! Oooh in other news – guess who is conjunct the sun in Aqua right now? That’s right. Asteroid GARY, people 🙂 🙂 Which means he’s heading for my Aqua Venus then… Read more »

All i can say is that today i had the most intense and longest preening session for a loooong time. Just HAD to. And thoroughly enjoyed it too!

As for the mirrors – this Venus in Leo keeps hers sparkling at all times – since i always clean them on the Dark Moon… good fengshui practice.
This is a cool link about mirror magic: http://occultdesign.blogspot.com.es/2005/11/mirror-as-powerful-tool.html

Transiting Venus is still doing the final degrees in my 4th House, where it is opposing natal Venus, Mars and Uranus and squaring Jupe. Cannot wait for it to move into my House of Pleasure… soon..

Also feeling ethereally inspired at the moment – thanks Merc Retro (I’m a poet & performance artist). Good vibes from this Venus in Taurus conjunct the MC, trine Neptune…

Please yes! Woke up this morning and things were different – I am not a morning person, but I floated through breakfast, had dreamy exchanges with the bf, time stood still while I got ready for work (traffic was slow, too…), got to work and checked my email and BAM Venus in Pisces. Just lovely.

feeling much better but not sure whether venus in pisces or b/c i decided to put on my big girl panties and quit worrying about friend with whom i wasnt sure where i stood right now. a good chat with a sadge who has plenty o’ scorp , she has touched the dark side and knows how to handle psych-blowouts … the people you meet when you’re at a low, low ebb eh, life saver she is but might not know it. anyway keeping the workouts happening is most definitely keeping me sane. balanced, strong, my legs are coming back!… Read more »

I think that comes from just 24 hours ago deciding to ride-out and take the high road on certain matters that were niggling at me. The daily scopes, some targeted Oracle questions and a healthy does of “grow-up” thinking have definitely helped in their tone of keep focused, keep your manners switched on, and reminding myself – when at a low point – that everything is OK and it will work out fine, keep my goals of ‘everyone wins’ shiny and new

I have a quick/general astro question. If you are having a jupiter transit in your 7th house, and it is opposite your sun sign … is that supposed to be a good thing? I have heard mixed reviews – some say yes, some say that it’s awful if its opposite your sun. So … thought i would turn to the astro experts. anyone know?

Pi
Pi

it sort of stirs things up. that’s my experience. more opportunities, more coming, more going, more more. jupiter seems to function best when you say yes to everything but easy on the bingeing/ bombast. opposite sun, … not sure about that one.

Anon

it’s one of the easier transits, imo. jupiter & sun play well together, even in the tougher aspects. the only downside may be ego inflation

venus schmeanus. MEH 😐 No love to speak of.

Whenever I see venus posts I think “art” because Venus is my weakest link in my chart. Squares my Cap asc and Lilith.

BUT hey, I have Neptune conjunct sun in the 10th and I’m on a creative roll. 😀 Just completed an abstract piece for an art competition. Very happy with it.

“Venus in square aspect to your Ascendant you may continually underestimate your worth or value as a person”. I see great irony in your statement that Venus is your weakest link when it makes up so much of how I imagine you these days. 🙂 You are Venus!

Scorpbot
Scorpbot

aww shucks. You’re so lovely. 🙂
And yes, I suppose you’re right but only arty Venus not “love”

Think I’ve worked through all that values stuff with natal Saturn in Aqua in 2nd house. Like Mystic says “wherever you have Saturn is hard but it eventually becomes your shining star”

I feel valuable, loveable, boundaries like Fort Knox, ooze self respect and all that but i’m not down-dating just to have someone in my life. I just haven’t met my match. Think he only exists in my imagination.

Pi

def venus as art, lookin’ yummy, taking in the eye candy if not nec much more than that, feeling gooooood, etc. 🙂 venus / art is how i do it these days. art, pleasure, and beauty (sort of) is within my control / something i can work on. I think mars tends to influence my romance activities a bit more! as the ruler of aries, where my Venus lives. well, that only just occurred to me so .. 🙂

Scorpbot
Scorpbot

that makes sense for you I guess. But venus rules my Libra venus, so venus influences my romance activities – with a little bit of Cap asc saturnine restraint and pragmatic advice 🙂 Just as well too, otherwise I’d be a complete Love zombie. Feet firmly planted on the ground as my head takes a peak through the clouds. Venus as beauty – absolutely!! I bought the most amazing top recently and it feels soooooo nice on. Mmmm, felt really beautiful wearing it. So yeah, fashion too. Which has never really been my thing but i do love nice fabrics,… Read more »

My Mars is in Pisces, so maybe Venus transiting it will bring me an amazing lover? That’s what happened last year when Venus was in Pisces transiting exact conjunct my Mars, last April…….. Secretly (well, not so secretly..) I want THAT lover to re-emerge now…..it is a possibility…..

Was just looking at my mirrors and thinking the same thing!

Transiting Venus is opposite my Natal Venus EXACTLY…. My natal venus is 0* Virgo, conjuncting my ascendant from the 12th house.
Transiting Venus is approaching my descendant at 3*Pisces.

Currently, really loving my sweet Torro. Things got heavy and dark for me for a bit, and he stood by me, listened to what I was saying.
Hope this feeling keeps growing and lasting.

HIs natal mars is in Pisces, and transiting mars has already passed over it. Neptune is still sitting on it though. WE are drinking less, but sobriety doesn’t seem to be in the picture.

my venus is super well-placed. i haven’t been feeling particularly sparkly lately, so now that i know this (thank you, mm) i am going to primp and put my heart back in it and open up to this exaltation. i can be glam even whilst i’m re-ing during this cray mercury retro – and even if i have to try a little harder, and in different ways. that’s a good thing.

Oh this makes so much sense to me!! This morning I was to make a big purchase and was really concerned about the Merc Rx, but I thought ‘oh well it’s not a computer’.

Pi you will think me a tad Machievellian but I googled the best time of day psychologically to get a yes vote… And apparently judges are some stupid amount (70%?) more likely to be lenient in sentencing right after lunch & brekky. So I broke out the bikkies for my Kataka boy at the shop and left them about, hoping the sight of food would relax them. But honestly I think it was the sight of cash that did it, lol!

Haven’t been in a ‘romantic relationship’ for about 10 years. A couple of flings, several crushes and PT relationship with unavailable man I ended 3ish years ago. I would love to start a new one 🙂

Curious – what would be considered a Venus sensitive aspect for someone to have? To be sensitive to Venus in Pisces in play?

UltraSag
UltraSag

Maybe if you had Venus rising or at an angle, or Venus as chart ruler (Libra or Taurus rising), or conjunct sun/moon?

Don’t know though; I have Venus rising and I sure don’t feel sparkly right now! (Anything in Pisces in going to be making a series of squares for me though.)

Ultimately, maybe it just depends if you’ve observed you’re sensitive to the energy!

Perhaps someone who knows more will be along to comment soon 🙂

Hey, so I think Mystic would say she doesn’t buy the whole “detriment” thing. It just means a less obvious access. From my experience of being with a multiple conjunct Scorp (incl Venus) AND having lots of Pluto energies opposing my natal Venus in Taurus, I do not see Venus in Scorp as bad at all. It does give a predilection for femme-fatales, I hear! But that’s more aesthetics than anything. Deep love is what Venus in Scorp is capable of. Pretty much eternal.

I’m just curious – do you live in Australia? The reason I ask is because mating & dating is very different here compared to the Northern Hemisphere. Every woman I know here in a relationship/married all admitted that if they didn’t chase/stalk/relentlessly pursue their mates there would be no relationship to speak of. In contrast, I find men in the US for the most part go for it. Granted, we have the ‘lower’ vibe of that energy which translates as incessant street harassment which I do not miss one iota.

prowlncrab

Yes I do live in Australia and yes I agree that generally speaking men here – particularly anglo men – aren’t the most emotionally literate bunch. It’s unfortunately part of our dumbed down convict/larrikin/bogan heritage that is taking eons to grow out of. I do notice though that young men in their 20s are moving forward in leaps and bounds on that front compared to previous generations.

Pi
Pi

prowln i have noticed the same too – younger guys that i am around more for various life-reasons are much more socially literate and able to express themselves, and much more open in their perceptions of the world around them. i.e. unclouded by prejudice and judgement. other factors too but mainly yes, less fear in being themselves for the younger fellas. good. it makes me blissfully happy to see – cool youngish dudes without hangups and attuned to subtlety and ready to call out unfairness across creed, class, gender.

I’m glad to see you guys are meeting these nice younger guys. All the self-professed “nice” younger guys at my former work space of 2 years were so abominably misogynistic and entitled. The girls their age saw RIGHT through them and I was so proud that they did. No bottom feeders, por favor!

My partner 12 years younger, have generally dated younger men.
I put it down to the fact that their mothers are of a generation of women who modelled more independence, financial and otherwise, and so their expectations of women are different perhaps.
