"For me, it is far better to grasp the universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring."

As of April 11, the planet of love and beauty (Venus) is exalted in emotional Pisces. As we all know, the greatest romances often end in tragedy. Venus in Pisces is more about the devastating longing and devotion to the act of love rather than a stable and realistic relationship. Now that Venus is joining up with the planet that rules illusions and delusions, the potential for us to get swept away in a total fantasy or nightmare romance is exaggerated.

No one's thinking very clearly at the moment. We're more prone to be influenced by what we want to see, our rose-colored glasses version of reality versus the day-to-day, nitty-gritty that determines whether a relationship actually works. You could also call this the beer-goggles love influence. We're all a bit drunk on the concept of wanting to lose ourselves in some idealized, blissed-out merger at the moment. Actually considering the particulars about a person’s character is likely to be a potentially dangerous blind spot.

On the positive side, if you're devoting your heart and soul to a higher, more spiritual or artistic calling, this could be a gorgeous and dreamy time, filled with endless inspiration. Our potential for devotion and surrender is at an all-time high during this time. We're looking for something infinite to get lost in. If we don't feel we have access to this, we could easily project our desire for something divine on to a mere, flawed mortal -- only to wake up in horror at the reality we refused to see the night before. Enjoy the bliss factor without losing your sanity.
