When Venus transits Pisces from January 26th through February 20th, 2023, we can expect to find our emotions all over the place. Venus is the planet of love, grace and harmony, so although it is the astrological Moon that rules our emotional state, Venus in this most watery of signs cannot help but move us to great highs and lows too.
Venus in Pisces energy is soft, sensitive, and highly compassionate. During this transit, it’s easier to feel compassion and empathy – many of us will be moved to tears by the slightest thing, both good and bad.
There’s a very strong spiritual vibe with this transit too, so it’s helpful for self-compassion, which is all too often overlooked, and for forgiving ourselves as well as others.
Romantically, Venus in Pisces can bring all-consuming love – there are no half measures here. It’s a very selfless kind of love and is often expressed towards society as a whole rather than towards a chosen individual, but where this transit does influence a literal romance, it brings poetry, rainbows, old fashioned courtship and the most tender expressions of undying love.
However, Venus in Pisces can also be rather self-deluding. This is definite rose-tinted glasses territory, and there can be a refusal to see or to acknowledge the faults in a relationship.
Venus rules our financial dealings as well as our love lives, and here there could be trouble. Financial decisions made from the heart, not the head, could lead to reckless action – or there may be a failure to study the details or to do due diligence. Confusion reigns.
Because Pisces energy can be so vague and nebulous, this is not a great Venus transit for business deals or major financial decisions. If you must act, take expert advice first, and be very aware of increased gullibility; it’s easy to be conned when Venus transits Pisces.

Aries Zodiac Sign (Aries Dates: March 20 – April 19) During Venus in Pisces
Self-sacrifice is a key theme during this Venus transit, both in love and in business. You may find yourself having to give up something so that your business, your colleagues or your partner can benefit. This is quite alien to Aries, but bear with it – in the long run, your kindness and willingness to give way will benefit you too. It’s about understanding that others’ needs are currently more important than your own.
Taurus Zodiac Sign (Taurus Dates: April 20 – May 20) During Venus in Pisces
Real bonds of friendship can be forged during this Venus transit, Taurus, which encourages you to connect with others on a deep and sincere level. Cut down on your superficial socializing and focus instead on a few very genuine social relationships. If you are single, this transit could see one particular friendship becoming something so much more important.
Gemini Zodiac Sign (Gemini Dates: May 21 – June 20) During Venus in Pisces
This Venus transit activates your career zone and helps you to work from the heart in whatever you do for a living. It may suggest a love interest at work. If you are already in a happy relationship, it’s likely that your career will bring you a lot of emotional satisfaction during this transit, Gemini, but you will want more than ever to feel that there is a real purpose to what you do.
Cancer Zodiac Sign (Cancer Dates: June 21 – July 21) During Venus in Pisces
This Venus transit is usually enlightening for you, Cancer. You learn a lot about who you are, what you want from a lover and what you are prepared to give in return. There may be links to a love interest abroad, or someone from a very different culture to your own. If you are single, keep an open mind when you’re dating, because someone who is not ‘your type’ could be perfect for you.
Leo Zodiac Sign (Leo Dates: July 22 – August 21) During Venus in Pisces
Self-care and self-compassion are essential during this Venus transit, Leo, which opens up all kinds of emotions for you, including great joy but also some deep regrets. Be free with your forgiveness, to yourself and to others. In a happy relationship, this transit can be steamy and sensual, but there is always an undercurrent of tenderness – many beautiful memories can be made here.
Virgo Zodiac Sign (Virgo Dates: August 22 – September 21) During Venus in Pisces
This transit activates your love zone, Virgo, so it’s typically a happy and fulfilling period in an established relationship. If you’re single, this is one of the best times of the year for dating - but be careful not to come across as too needy or desperate. Hold your head high and do not settle for second best. Look out for feeling drawn to someone on a spiritual level, rather than necessarily a physical one.
Libra Zodiac Sign (Libra Dates: September 22 – October 22) During Venus in Pisces
Watch out for your mental health during this Venus transit, LIbra. Self-doubt or anxiety may peak, and it’s all too easy to turn to substances which you think might make you feel better – they won’t. What will help, however, is being surrounded by love and companionship, so reach out to those who love you the most and allow yourself to be cherished.
Scorpio Zodiac Sign (Scorpio Dates: October 23 – November 21) During Venus in Pisces
This Venus transit is extremely creative for you, Scorpio, and can be very inspirational. Allow yourself to express from the heart and soul, whether that’s through art, dance, music or drama. It’s also a hot spot for love and dating and can lead to some sizzlingly steamy encounters if you allow your sincerity to shine.
Sagittarius Zodiac Sign (Sagittarius Dates: November 22 – December 20) During Venus in Pisces
For you, Sagittarius, the focus of this Venus transit is family. It’s an excellent time for reaching out to hard-to-love relatives and for offering forgiveness. The healing vibe is also brilliant for resolving family rifts or for drawing closer together as a family unit. Spend as much time as you can with your loved ones and enjoy the warmth and companionship they bring.
Capricorn Zodiac Sign (Capricorn Dates: December 21 – January 18) During Venus in Pisces
Venus may be the planet of love, Capricorn, but this transit mostly affects your head, not your heart. Don’t be surprised if you find it hard to think straight, or if you get easily confused or side-tracked. There may be an underlying emotional issue that is holding you back, so try to address things in an open and honest manner if you can. Otherwise, it’s a case of hanging on in there and waiting for the confusion to clear.
Aquarius Zodiac Sign (Aquarius Dates: January 19 – February 17) During Venus in Pisces
This Venus transit activates your money zone, Aquarius. On the one hand, this can signal an increase in abundance, with more money at your disposal. However, be careful. This is quite vague and deceptive energy at times, and you should seek expert advice before making major financial decisions. On a more positive note, this transit can also shore up your moral and emotional values, helping you to better understand yourself.
Pisces Zodiac Sign (Pisces Dates: February 18 – March 19) During Venus in Pisces
Venus in your own sign is a boost to your confidence and your self-esteem for sure. For just a short while, others seem to see the world the same as you do, and your best qualities are admired and lauded. It’s a very good time to fall in love, but it’s also a good time to work on loving yourself and being proud of who you are. In a love relationship, stand your ground and demand respect.
