VENUS TRANSIT OF PISCES
6th April 2022 – 3rd May 2022
Today Venus shifts into watery Pisces, enhancing her natural strengths; as well as helping to activate the much-heralded Jupiter Neptune conjunction in Pisces, which is growing ever closer by the day. Today Venus finally gets to rejoice in the familiar and welcoming waters of Pisces after a long 6 months.
Venus hasn’t had much support since mid-September 2021, due in part to her extended retrograde cycle in Capricorn over the summer. This Venus retrograde peaked with her conjunctions to Pluto, a notorious underworld figure who likes dredging up the darker sides of life and relationships.
After her elongated transit through Capricorn, her entry into Aquarius saw her sharing space with Saturn and Mars. Mars who had been conjoining Venus on and off through Capricorn gave Venus more teeth and motivation to surrender to Mars’ desires, she was very much at Mars’ call due to his strength in Capricorn. Venus’ transit through Aquarius was hardly a walk in the park. She was besieged / trapped between Mars and Saturn for some of it, creating an incredibly stressful terrain for her to navigate.
So, today’s ingress into Pisces is a bit of a win for Venus after a difficult 6 months. Usually she moves quicker through the signs, so these delays and difficulties don’t usually last as long. Since mid-September 2021 Venus had to deal with the endless depths and challenges, thanks to her interactions with Pluto, Mars and Saturn, Venus had to put aside her usual priorities as she focused on stressful and difficult relationships.
Venus now gets to swim in her exalted waters of Pisces until May 3rd when she moves into the fiery and Mars ruled sign of Aries. Venus this time around in Pisces gets extra pleasure and strength points, thanks to Jupiter the ruler of Pisces also being co-present in Pisces. April is a wonderful month to enjoy people, places, pleasure, art, music, creativity, spirituality the list feels endless. It’s been a difficult 6 months for Venus and April is the month where she gets to indulge in all the fruits of her labour, and she is finally allowed to enjoy the things she adores in a supported manner. Enjoy, this only comes around every 12 years. Savour every moment of it.
