Venus In Pisces – The Mermaid

The Greek legend says that Venus arose from the foam of the sea shore. She is frequently pictured wafted on a large sea shell to shore as a gift from heaven, symbolizing the watery female principle, essential to the generation and balance of life. No wonder in astrology Venus is exalted in Pisces, which literally means that is in this watery placement where she is able to express herself at her best.

Pisces is ruled by the mystical Neptune, the God of the sea, who is also the higher octave of Venus. In Pisces, Venus brings all the Venusian attributes of love and beauty to higher realms – of enchanting beauty, spiritual and compassionate love and receptivity, and authentic connection.
