If you find yourself longing for someone who isn’t just a compatible partner, but aligned with your soul’s purpose as well, it may be Venus in Pisces at work. That’s because this influence, which takes place from January 3 to February 1, 2009 (and again from April 11- 23, 2009) is about spiritual love and unearthly beauty – in all our lives. Love and beauty are the domain of Venus, while spirituality is the domain of Pisces. Combined, it’s the ultimate quest for a romantic ideal.
In the realm of archetypes, the male Pisces lover is the knight in shining armor, the divine warrior and protector. He is also the artistic genius who has the gift of divine inspiration. Whether he’s a mystic, shaman, savior or artist, his power stems from his spirituality. The female Pisces lover is the damsel in distress. She’s the innocent victim who is deserving of being saved, but who may have to sacrifice her life for the greater good. On a higher level, she’s an angel in the form of a good witch or healer. Either way, she’s the essence of purity.
The dark side
Although we rarely manifest such perfection in reality, the Venus in Pisces archetype can be found in varying degrees of psychics, healers, volunteers, philanthropists and artists. On the other hand, the dark side of this influence is deception and disillusionment. It’s the alluring Lothario who seduces his lovers through false but enticing words. It’s also the rose-colored glasses of self-deception, which occurs when you place your lover upon a pedestal by refusing to acknowledge who they really are. Between these two extremes is the sensitive, romantic idealist who yearns for an ethereal bond with a partner.
So how can this enchanting energy benefit your love life? Read your sign to find out!
