Feeling more passive all of sudden? Like you’re waiting to see where the flow takes you?
Welcome to the world of Venus in Pisces, her residence of what astrologers call exaltation.
She entered in yesterday, January 2nd.
Oh, Venus loves it in Pisces – her shadows, mysteries, and quiet in the womb of some light about to come forth into the world.
Joining Mars, who hates being in Pisces (see here how Mars’ felt about it in Last Week’s Considerations), Venus takes the edge off her man Mars and his frustration about being slow.
Remember how I said last week that Mars in Pisces is like treading water for a month? You get somewhere, but it’s not ideal. Yet, it’s a necessary part of the journey.
Mercury Retrograde dips back into Sagittarius on Wednesday.

That’s all the personal planets, so it’s something that has to be addressed about your daily life.
In this week’s Day Guide’s – especially Sunday and Monday – you learn about how to make meaning of your Mercury Retrograde story and where to channel the energy you do have to do something positive. (This Mars placement isn’t easy for being productive, all I’m saying).
The final Consideration puts into perspective why you must give weight to Mercury stationing Direct.
Mercury is helping set a context for Saturn to construct what matters to you most over the next 7, 15, 21, and 30 years.
It’s a small but significant moment that can really put you ahead of the curve of the less energetically informed. Continue reading ““I Wanna Do Nothin’”…. But You’ve Gotta Do This! Venus in Pisces & Finding Direction During Your Last Week of Mercury Retrograde”
