Venus goes into Pisces just in time for Valentine’s Day.
Venus, the planet of love and attraction, moved into the sign of Pisces on February 10, 2018 and will be there until March 6, 2018. Pisces is associated with imagination, dreams, spirituality, and universal love. Think back to a time in your life when you just loved someone even though they were kind of a hot mess. You couldn’t help it, it’s like you had x-ray vision and could see past the mess right into their soul. You just loved them for being them. That’s the energy of Venus in Pisces. A powerful, spiritual, unconditional love that not everyone is ready to receive.
We also have a solar eclipse this Thursday, February 15th at 3:05 pm CST.
A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between the Earth and the Sun and during that pass the Moon partially or totally overshadows the Sun. A solar eclipse only occurs during a new moon and a new moon is when the Sun and the Moon are conjunct (right next to one another in the same sign and degree).
Since the Sun is being overshadowed or blocked, the Moon and all things Moon related like dreams, psychic experiences, and feelings take center stage. We get a chance to connect with what’s going on inside us, our inner world. Eclipses are the drama queens of astrology that instigate change and good or bad they get our attention. Sometimes we contemplate what changes need to be made and other times eclipses force us into change whether we like it or not.
For the next six months pay attention to the changes that take place in your life it will give you clues about the area of life that was most important or in need of change during the solar eclipse.
Mercury, the planet of the mind and communication, will be conjunct this solar eclipse in the sign of Aquarius. Since Mercury deals with the mind and Aquarius is associated with revolution we’ll be more willing to think outside of the box when it comes to solutions to our problems. An option we hadn’t considered before presents itself. We see our lives from a completely different perspective.
