Venus Exalted in Vedic Astrology
Venus is exalted in Pisces, the sign of otherworldly energy and creativity. With Pisces we seem to have 1 foot in this world and 1 foot in the other. Venus, the planet of desires becomes elevated in Pisces, where we find happiness in the highest, most metaphysical ways. Instead of seeking pleasure, the lowest quality of Venus, or happiness through others, we seek a sort of divine love.
Typically, human beings disappoint us, because we have extremely high expectations and desires we are trying to fulfill through them. When Venus is in Pisces our desires are elevated toward things more eternal. We find the highest beauty in teachings from great spiritual masters and other elevated things.
The real lesson of exalted Venus is it shows how are supposed to use that energy, in a high sense. Meaning, we are meant to elevate our desires beyond just the physical or the emotional. We’re meant to find “happiness for no reason”, whereas typically the mind finds many excuses not to be happy or contented.
