Venus is the planet of love, beauty and harmony. It governs our relationships (particularly our love life) and embodies harmony and cooperation in all its forms. Every year, Venus spends some time in each sign of the zodiac only once, spreading its message of beauty and love to all. As it moves into each new sign, that sign affects how Venus does its work in the world, which in turn affects us here on earth. By understanding what it means when Venus is in a particular sign, we can figure out how to harness its power and strengthen our friendships, romantic relationships and professional connections. Here’s what Venus in Pisces means for all of us.

The overview: When Venus enters Pisces, your relationships—particularly your romantic relationships—can start changing fast. That’s because Pisces is Venus’s sign of exaltation, i.e., the fancy astrological way of saying it’s the sign where Venus is best able to do its thing. With Venus living up to its full potential, this can be a time of deep spirituality and soul connections. You’re forming deep bonds quickly, but it’s essential to keep your wits about you. Venus in Pisces has the tendency to see the world in rose-colored glasses.
Love: Venus in Pisces is like Paris for lovers. It has its way of turning every romantic encounter into a fairy tale. Even the crankiest of cranks believes in love at first sight when Venus is in Pisces. You might even find yourself rushing into relationships faster than usual. Beware of projecting your fantasies onto other people too quickly. What we’re trying to say is that you don’t have to start planning your wedding until at least the third date.
Career and finances: Venus in Pisces has your head in the clouds, and you’ll be spending way more time developing your work crush than developing your Q1 reports. Be wary of overstepping boundaries with coworkers, as Pisces blurs the line between the personal and the professional.
Mood: Your empathy is turned all the way up during this creative, emotional time. This means that your friendships will be more valuable to you than ever. Venus in Pisces has us highly susceptible to the feelings of others, hence the importance of checking in with yourself regularly (keep a journal! meditate! jog!) and practicing self-care to avoid taking on other people’s negative vibes. That will eat you alive.
