Venus moved into Pisces today and stays there until Thursday, April 21st.
If you look at this transit from a Tarot perspective, it’s like the Empress is dressed as the Moon. She’s all but disappeared in the night.
The Empress is love, empathy and compassion. She feels, nurtures and provides.
In open welcome, she invites everyone to her table in celebration of life’s bounty. All pains are commemorated and all happinesses rejoiced.
The Empress is the mother of the world. She’s femininity at its most creative and most obvious. At her best, she’s bright, sweet and always there to help.
The Moon is also feminine, but she’s dark, sometimes even frightening. Psychic visions, powerful dreams, the deepest of our unconscious rising to the surface.
It’s hard to feel safe when it’s dark all around. Instincts kick in and defenses go up.
The Moon asks you to feel, intuit, move with the rhythms of the tides. Breathe in, breathe out, and don’t get swamped.
The Empress is not uncomfortable here, though she doesn’t like her children to be afraid. She knows that it’s in the damp darkness that gestation occurs. Without it there is no life.
Venus in Pisces, or the Empress dressed as the Moon, is a good time to embrace your own unconscious depths.
Nurture your psychic energies through art, poetry or creative visualizations.
And try not to be afraid. Feelings that are usually expressed out loud might be less open than usual. That doesn’t mean they’re any less deep.
There’s as much beauty in the dark as there is in the light. It’s just not flashy. Dive into the mysteries and enjoy what you can never know for sure.
