Venus in Pisces Collection
Venus in her exaltation of Pisces brings out the dreamy and watery side of our Venusian goddess. Here she is right at home in her triplicity of water where she consorts with the spirits of the sea, namely Poseidon (Neptune), who before becoming god of the sea originated as a personification of the fertilising power of water. The watery influence on Venus here is amplified by Neptune being in between Venus and Jupiter, closely conjoining them both. Neptune in Modern astrology is known as the higher octave of Venus, and the modern ruler of Pisces. This modern delineation does, however, have ancient roots. Before being elevated to a celestial sphere, Neptune as god of the sea was said to be at home in the constellation of Pisces, and according to Manilius, Neptune recognises his own in the aether of Pisces.
