For the time of Aries
- Embrace education. Turn knowledge into something useful, practical, and profitable. Find mentors, allies and colleagues who are on your same path.
- What studies call to you? What would make you a wiser, more valuable person?
- Learning takes a lifetime. The best lessons don't happen in a classroom. Take charge of your mind's horizons ... and set yourself free.
Venus in Pisces
Until April 28
Venus has moved back into Pisces
where it will travel until April 28.
When Venus is in Pisces, people are more sensitive, compassionate, and empathetic. They are idealistic in relationships. They show forbearance, devotion, generosity, tolerance, and "spiritual connection" in attracting love -- and express their "sentimental side" in poetic, tender gestures. Their response to loved ones is sincere ... and almost psychic.
People -- and their feelings -- are unusually fragile, affectionate, and perceptive. They want to "merge into" or "dissolve into" the experience of love. No kidding, this is the kind of love described in sonnets and great drama.
When Venus is in Pisces, relationships hold an almost mystical vision of love and its power to move, transform, and heal the human soul. People seek "love" as a spiritual experience, a thing of the inner heart and imagination -- much more than of the flesh and physical passions. There is a longing for the "perfect love" and connection with the "soul mate."
It's a time of seeking pure "romance." There is a willingness to sacrifice oneself for the beloved as a show of ultimate devotion. Money, too, is used in romantic, quixotic -- and often highly impractical ways. (But oh, my, the Karmic blessings that can come from this kind of charity!!)
