#146 January 23-29: Venus in Pisces


With Jupiter and Chiron in Aries, and the Sun in Aquarius, Ingrid and Scott continue discussing the recent themes of authenticity, community, and individualism.

As Venus begins transit through its exalted Sign, Pisces, compassion and empathy becomes a major theme in relationships.

However, it is also important to be mindful of people pleasing, bending over backwards, or being deceived by a partner.

As long as you are being the authentic individual you are meant to be you will be able to truly be empathic to a partner without losing yourself in the process.

The themes this week are…

1. Relationships

2. Compassion

3. Community

Venus, lady luck, the goddess of love and beauty, the planet of relationships, makes one final alignment with the Moon in Aquarius, the sign of community.

Meanwhile the Sun aligns with Jupiter in Aries, the North Node in Taurus, and Mars in Gemini, touching upon the themes of courage, values, and communication.

The major transit of the week is the arrival of Venus in the most compassionate sign, Pisces, where it is exalted, therefore it is in a position of power. Hopefully, this means you are entering a time of healing in your relationships.

Venus in Pisces

Find compassion for yourself as a partner, and empathy for those you are in partnership with, as Venus transits through Pisces.

Be aware that you may also find yourself giving more than usual within your relationships, because you may be more sensitive to what your partner is feeling.

Are you be taken advantage of in your relationships?

Are you taking advantage of those you are in relationship with?

Do you find yourself escaping in order to avoid your partner?

What are you relationships dreams?

What would you like to manifest for your relationships?

Do you have faith in your partners?

Do your partners have faith in you?

When you are compassionate with yourself, you create an opportunity for you to be empathetic towards others without compromising yourself to the point of being taken advantage of.

When you are empathetic towards others, you are not taking advantage of them, you are creating space for their feelings to be validated.

If you and your partners are empathetic towards each other instead of avoidant, through faith, you will be more likely to find your dreams within reach.
