A sparkling fountain of dreams…Some of them broken others taking wing.
This is a truly enchanting natal placement if somewhat elusive. Venus strives to own beauty as it sees it, co-ruled by Taurus and Libra, the beauty of Venus is that of the sensual kind or the esthetic abstract ideal.
Think…The scent of rich perfume (Taurus) or the glossy bottle holding it (Libra).
What would a Pisces Venus do with the bottle? It will hold the perfume bottle and admire it and then drop int on the ground and watch the shards of glass sparkle in the sun, musing about the brokenness of all beauty…You get the picture.
Pisces is not about ownership but about letting go. Venus in Pisces appreciates what can not be captured or owned by regular means. It enjoys the elusive ideal that can’t be defined.
More than anything it enjoys atmosphere of enchantment and fantasy, This can be captured through artistic means like photography, music, poetry…Often something slightly dreamy and sad about it. Venus in Pisces enjoys the process of making the sensual and factual into something more- by elevating it into realms beyond the mundane.
Because Pisces Venus is ruled by Neptune, the love life of these natives is often wrought with misunderstandings and broken hearts. If Neptune makes hard aspect to personal planets it can create a yearning for soul union that is too strong to be realized with any mortal human.
Even if Neptune is well aspected in the chart, some elements of this story will sound familiar: Falling deeply in love, being disappointed, finding out it was all a lie…
On the other hand, this Venus is a true heart breaker itself. Why? Because the love it gives may at first be directed at one person but ultimately it is directed towards humanity, it is not a personal possessive kind of love. It doesn’t want to own another person or be owned in return. It may seek deep true love and connection, be generous and giving, but at some point it won’t feel right.
If Venus in Pisces is not mature it can attempt to find all that “humanity” in one person. They may elevate the person they love to a godly status. Imagine living up to that!
If it is mature, it will instead give love to the person they care about well still keeping some of their heart for their ideals and dreams. They may learn to balance soul-union with a healthy detachment.
This Venus thrives in its ability to be somewhat detached. No matter how difficult things get it can find true joy and beauty in something higher.
The ability to elevate anything into a fantasy makes them talented artists and creators. They can make great filmmakers of example (Neptune rules filming) or even actors. Certainty, they are very compassionate and care a lot about people ( as long as it is not one person) so various professions that involve caring for the sick and needy suite them.
This Venus is a better placement for females- at least in current society. Venus in Pisces Males tend to want to rescue a female that has fallen from grace (have you seen Pretty Woman?) or they can stay bachelors for a long time as no woman fits their ideal of love. In a female chart it will give grace to the expression of affection.
I hope I managed to paint a picture of this Venus: It may create an enchanted forest- a true a dream of beauty but it always has its darkness. It is the kind of darkness like a siren: Enchanting but leading to a bottomless nowhere…
This charm works wonderfully in the realms of art and in it’s ability to inspire compassion in humankind. Yet, it stands somewhat alone and lonely within our world. The enchanted forrest can’t always stand the light of day.
This is at the core of all Pisces Venus needs – finding a concrete structure to support it. It can be done through embracing a spiritual path or joining in with something larger. For example, with a group of people working towards a common ideal. It will depend on the placement of Venus in the chart to see what path is best.
The support is crucial as the dualism of Pisces can make it flow somewhere…but get to nowhere every time.
This Venus is sensitive but can always move on to brighter waters. It is flexible like that…And always hopeful. In this sense, it is a very powerful placement and can survive emotional wounds time and again.
