What is the significance of Exalted Venus (Venus in Pisces) in Vedic Astrology?
Home : Astrology: You are here
Suppose you are a Yogi and reside in the Himalayas and spend most of your time in chanting mantras and doing meditation. So here, your passion is for meditation and accomplishing the spiritual tasks in an isolated place, the Himalayas. Then obviously your Venus should be in Pisces in your birth chart as your life's situation is to have passion and love for isolation and spirituality as Pisces sign is all about isolation and spirituality. But that doesn't mean from inside you feel like exalted Venus. It may be your Venus is debilitated from inside and that may be the reason you went to the Himalayas to improve your Venus. In that case, your Venus will be debilitated in the Navamsa Chart though it may be exalted in the birth chart.
So to feel like exalted Venus from inside it should actually happen in your Navamsa Chart first. Many people have an exalted Venus in the birth chart but they are taking the drugs and remain cut-off from society (isolation). So it is not always so that you are a divine personality if your Venus is exalted in the birth chart. You need to look at the placement of your Venus in the Navamsa Chart (D9 chart) as well. But one thing is sure that an exalted Venus > if it is happening in the birth chart of a man then definitely his wife (incoming if not married) will be of a character of an exalted Venus as Venus represents the wife in man's birth chart.
Venus becomes Vargottama (of the highest quality) when it falls on the same sign in the birth chart and the Navamsa Chart and it has the capability to give great results to the native during its Mahadasha or Anterdasha. But if Venus is debilitated in both the birth chart and the Navamsa Chart then it would give the worse results as then it becomes Vargottama (very strong) in the negative sense. This is true for any planet and not just the Venus.
Exalted Venus people are peaceful from inside and they are more about the divine and pure love than the love for the perishable worldly things. They have a love for humanity and so want to represent the masses in some way by being on the stage. They mostly want to be alone (but collective at the same time > but divine collectivity) and run away from the public during working hours. But that doesn't mean they are afraid of the public, just they are introvert.
They want to be collective when on the stage when it comes to divine enjoyment through music, dance, singing, etc. as divinity is expressed through music, dance, singing, etc. Also, when you work over the internet you may be alone (in your room) but still interacting with people (collective) from behind the scenes via the internet.
Many people who are in customer care and interacting with people from behind the scenes such as through phone or via chat (on the computer) also have their Venus exalted. A good example could be telecom operators or people working in the call centers who interact with the public from behind the scenes. This is because the sign of Pisces represents "behind the scenes". But this will be your life's situation (working behind the scenes) but if you want to know if your Venus is truly exalted or not then look at the Navamsa Chart which sign Venus is placed.
Pisces is actually a sign of moving out of this normal world such as moving to isolated places like the Himalayas where there is also spirituality and peace which also the sign of Pisces represents. Similarly, many people make use of air balloons to fly in the air and that is also moving away from this normal world and represents Pisces. Pilots also move in the air when they fly in an airplane and many pilots have their Venus in the sign of Pisces in the 8th house as the 8th house is of sudden ups and downs and flying airplane also involves sudden ups and downs.
Many people who go to Outerspace also have their Venus exalted as Outerspace again is moving out of this normal world. If Saturn is in Pisces and Jupiter (lord of Pisces) in Aries you can even be someone climbing mountains with ropes. Mountains, here again, are located in isolated places which the sign of Pisces represents. Programmers and software engineers could also have their Venus exalted as they are always lost in a world where they enjoy spirituality through their detail-oriented work like coding. The sign of Pisces makes you go deep in some other world as it is a very introvert sign.
When Mercury is placed in the sign of Pisces it means communication from behind the scenes as Mercury is communication. For example, many people communicate on behalf of the cartoon characters in many kids cartoon movies. Also, many people speak from behind the scenes for many documentary films and even in youtube videos. You don't see the original speaker or communicator in the video. You only see pictures and the person speaks from behind the scenes. Know also about > Saturn in Pisces.
With Venus in Pisces they mostly choose the type of work where they can work in isolation (avoid public dealings) or remain behind the scenes like painters, musicians, drummists, singers, computers (you are behind the scenes when you work on the computer using the internet), journalists, social workers, etc. Venus is creativity and so the creativity is enhanced when the Venus is exalted.
Venus in Libra people wants to make a lot of relationships with other people. But Venus in Pisces people doesn't believe in making relationships. They are very creative people and so want to spend their time doing something very creative like designing, coding, meditation, yoga, etc.
But the sign of Pisces has it's negative effects also as Pisces (12th house in astrology) is a sign of dream world too. If Mars is not well placed 'Venus in Pisces' people can enjoy sexuality a lot especially if they are not married. For example, if Mars is in 8th house as 8th house is of sexual activities too. But if Mars is, say in 10th house or 9th house where it is very strong, then the person will be highly dignified and then Exalted Venus will make him very creative whatever he does.
Exalted Venus people believe in true love (or divine love). If a woman or a man is of materialistic nature then they cannot connect with them. Just give up your desires and become innocent like a child and be romantic (but with divine love) and then you will be winning the heart of the person with exalted Venus. If you are too much social then you cannot go along with 'Venus in Pisces' person because he/she is intoxicated in his/her own world.
One major reason Venus is exalted in Pisces because Venus represents women and the main job of a woman in this life is to remain behind the scenes (12th house isolation) and take care of the home and the children. A man has to be in front and take care of the expenses (6th house of work).
Also, Pisces is a sign of expansion and Venus by default represents wealth and creativity and so Venus in the sign of Pisces could expand your creativity and wealth but the results will differ according to which house the Venus is exalted. See the links below for the benefits of exalted Venus in different houses. But this may not hold true if Jupiter (the lord of the sign of Pisces) is not well placed in the birth chart. Just like the debilitated Venus may give poverty similarly the exalted Venus may give a lot of wealth in life.
