Venus in Poetic Pisces
What’s happening in the hidden chambers of our hearts? Love planet Venus tours dreamy, mystical Pisces from January 12 through February, inviting us all to dive deep into our feelings. What have we been afraid to admit to ourselves about our love lives? Denial ain’t just a river; it’s the very thing that can prevent us from finding or enjoying the great romances that are accessible to us.
The best way to use this Venus in Pisces phase is to begin with an emotional housecleaning. Sit with your journal and write all the things that are bugging you about your love life. You could also do this exercise focusing on any key relationships with people you adore but kinda want to strangle right now. Then, write all the things that you feel grateful for about these relationships. Being present to both the pros and the cons is the way to address matters without getting sucked into a tornado of confusing feelings.
Don’t feel like thinking about the “negative stuff”? Probably not, since Venus in Pisces likes to put on the rose-colored glasses as much as it likes to probe the shadowy depths. Yet if we don’t address issues, they could explode without our consent. If we tackle them head-on, we can emerge with a bond that’s deeper than we could have even imagined. Band-Aid solutions won’t work for any problems that erupt between now and February 7. We’ve gotta get to the psychological motivations behind them if we want to truly heal. This takes time, and we’ll have to accept and embrace the process.
As for the relationships that are working out swimmingly, the poetic Piscean energy makes us all into mini Elizabeth Barrett Brownings. Start working on those Valentine’s Day cards, as the deliciously loving words will not escape. This is also an incredible time for developing an artistic gift. Break out the paint set, strum your guitar, drop by a life-drawing workshop, sing in the car at the top of your lungs, sign up for an open-mic night. The world wants us all to bring forth our talents and raise its vibration to the frequency of beauty and love.
