I trust you are having a wonderful weekend.
I am seeking your opinion from an astro point of view regarding my Venus sign. My strong Fire Vibe serves me well in career and academic pursuits, so no real complaints there. However, my Venus sitting in Pisces has been a sore point.
All ex-partners have been Water signs. The men I seem to attract have had issues with alcohol, or diagnosed with a mental disorder, or can only offer an affair in secret. From what I have read up on, it would appear that these characteristics tend to be related to Pisceans. I understand that most people would ordinarily see these traits in men and run for the hills. But yet here I am attracting these types in droves!
Mystic, how do I rewrite my story? One that includes having a relationship with a healthy, stable man that doesn’t need rescuing or needs to be kept in secret. How do I WORK the positive aspects of Venus in Pisces?
Fed Up With Fishy Crap
If You Are Not Starring In An Arthurian Romance, Unconditional Love Is Dangerous
Hello, Fed Up With Fishy Crap!
Well, I too have Venus in Pisces so may not be the objective source of wisdom on this that you desire. However, I am sure there will be some super erudite people in the comments.
Venus in Pisces is considered “exalted” in traditional astrology – that is, this Goddess Of Love, Art, Beauty, and Charm functions particularly well in Pisces. One of the explanations I got for this years ago was that it is because Venus in Pisces is capable of “unconditional love.”
It sounds nice, but it is also a formula to be psychologically filleted by some Qi Vamp/Chaos Addict/Drama Magnet.
If you are not starring in an Arthurian Romance or the bloody Bible, unconditional love is dangerous. There are always ‘conditions’ or boundaries. And if not, why not? Is my Saturn-Venus transit showing?
Lower Neptunians Perfect Their Sex, Charm, And Seduction Skills To Cover For Their Inadequacies
So now to you. I don’t personally ascribe these traits to Pisces as such, but it does kind of like what Lower Neptune conduct – the darker manifestation of Neptune-Pisces-12th House energy.
There is probably some Jungian explanation for this. You may not be in touch with the higher energy of your Venus in Pisces, so you are putting out dark or clogged up emanations.
Or, subliminally you don’t feel you are worthy of a person with their shit together and who is available for a hot, healthy relationship.
And voila the queue of Lower Neptune types, complete with a slimy trail behind them on the wet mossy concrete, goo-goo eyes and poetic yearning. But god forbid that you ask them not to get smashed for a couple of days or to make an actual time for anything.
But what is this giving you? Sometimes going “out” with those sorts of people can give you a heap of space for work, friends, family, art, enterprise, and spiritual development.
Skip the self-talk, go full Mars on this: don’t date dickheads, no matter how hot. And stay out of sewers.
It can mean you feel like you’ve got something going on but without all the tedium of having to turn up for them. The fantasy affair – which Neptunians are fantastic at can be more fulfilling than real relationships.
And, the killer-app, these people tend to be sexually very appealing. They realize that they are never going to be the support person at the vet or some hospital. And you would have to be stark slobbering insane to ever blend finances with them. So they perfect their sex, charm and seduction skills.
I would wager that you were okay with your Venus in Pisces love life until the Saturn Uranus trine began late last year. That would have stimulated your Fire aspects to want stronger alliances.
Sometime in the last seven months, you gazed around at the terrain of your Neptunian lovers, and they seemed insubstantial.
You are already re-scripting this narrative. Awareness of this dynamic will in itself provide the outline for the next chapter. Venus in Pisces – anything in Pisces – responds to visualization and cognitive work, altering your consciousness and changing up your self-talk: I used to be drawn to people like that – now I’m not. Or I am really looking forward to my relationship with a healthy stable man.
Or, skip the self-talk, go full Mars on this: don’t date dickheads, no matter how hot. And stay out of sewers.
