What Having Your Venus in Pisces Says About You

Venus Pisces guys and gals are lovers who naturally seek out soul mates and kindred spirits. You know instinctively that people wear masks, and yearn to know a deep love that's beyond the mask.  

You want to go beyond the illusion of separation, and might take a shortcut with drugs, libations or "too much, too soon" hope for the best intimacy. Venus is "exalted" here in traditional lingo, which speaks to the Pisces associations of higher love, forgiveness and the sublime.

You can be a dreamy person that has an idea in your mind of the soul mate of your dreams. It's easy for you to fall in love, or with an idea of who someone is, but you also are easily wounded. You remind me of a snail that recoils from touch or changes shape as it moves. 

You're gentle, and can adapt to the moods of others, often losing yourself in the process. It's important to learn the art of self-protection, so you're not tossed about in a sea of emotion.

It's also hard for you to set personal boundaries, at times, and you'll likely long to merge with your beloved. That's why it can take awhile for you to get over hurts and disappointments when things go wrong.

In Love With Love (and Hate) 

Neptune-enchanted lovers of all kinds will see themselves -- and perhaps cringe -- reading Gary Goldschneider's quote in Everyday Astrology on Pisces in love. 

He writes, "Deluding themselves into thinking they truly love another, they are in fact just indulging their own narcissistic and highly idealistic urges." He notes that the fishy lover goes through a cycle of enthrallment, followed by jealousy and torment of self and the beloved. 

Goldschneider concludes, "Perhaps no better description of a Pisces love affair has ever been given than these lyrics from the themes song of the film Casablanca: 'Moonlight and love songs never out of date / Hearts full of passion, jealousy, and hate." 

Love and Romance

For you, love can be a mystical experience with the right person. You're impressionable, so it's important to learn to weed out those that would take advantage of your sensitive and yielding nature.

You tend to fall in love at first sight, and you might not see the red flags passing in front of your face. Even if someone treats you badly, you're liable to hold onto the connection, choosing to see through rose-colored glasses.

Friends Through Time 

Your kind heart can lead you to go out of your way for friends, but also for any person or animal in need. This makes you a thoughtful listener, with an extraordinary capacity to empathize. But often this blurs the lines, and you get over-involved with the emotional burdens of others.

When younger, you might get bossed around a lot, but find the strength later to direct your course more. More than most signs, you'll need to steer clear of those that drain you, and gravitate to those that uplift you.

The Arts 

You've got a vivid, poetic imagination that seems almost divinely inspired.

Your work may have otherworldly themes, and involve dreams, past lives, the invisible bonds we share, and our link to the spirit world. You can inhabit the emotions of others, making you a natural for acting and other fields of performance.

The Big Attraction

There's something mystical about you that appeals to the dreamer in all of us. You're able to read things on a symbolic level, which lends some magic to your relationships.

Your genuine kindness makes people trust you, and meet you with an open heart. You can have a fluid, graceful demeanor, and your imagination makes you an engaging conversationalist.

Winning Your Heart

You may wait for others to make the first move, so an ideal lover will be an initiator type. It's best for you to avoid those that are detached and speak of keeping things casual. You won't want to linger around harsh, abrasive people, or those wrapped up in the mundane. You're drawn to the artists and dreamers of the world.
