Pluto in Capricorn hits Venus (love, money, self-esteem), and then the Sun in Aries with a controlling, obsessive square. This influence will be strongest on March 31st, and it will be difficult to back off from something you must have. It will be challenging, but advisable, to not allow your compulsions to push you around; squares from Pluto can be destructive. Instead, wait until April 1st to 7th, when Venus moves towards a conjunction with Mars (action) in Aries. This promises a natural union of what you want (Venus) and what you do to get it (Mars). Things should fall into place if you allow them to.
As Venus and the Sun (in your sign) are challenged by Pluto, there could be something/someone you desire. Intensely. Know that the roots of this intensity lie in your perception of status and success. Which leads to this question; why are these two concepts so important to you, right now? Pay attention to what the intensity of your needs reveals about what's missing in your life. I'm talking about deeper, authentic needs. Take note, because as Venus moves towards a meeting with Mars (your ruler), you'll have to understand exactly what those deeper needs are. You'll stand a very good chance of getting exactly what you're aiming for, so make sure it's what you really want.
The square from Pluto to Venus (your ruler) and the Sun will reveal some very interesting things about what's going on behind the scenes. As you become aware of what's going on "out there", you may notice a distinct push to change things up, inside. This could take the form of compulsive cravings or desires that come out of nowhere. Maybe X suddenly looks fantastic to you, when you never paid attention to X before. Don't dismiss this. The truth is that your horizons have gradually been broadening, and you have been feeling entitled to more, over the past couple of years. As Venus moves closer to Mars, you'll become clearer on what your next step should be. You'll also become aware of the significant resources you have working for you.
Pluto's square to Venus and the Sun (in your sector of groups) can force a confrontation between public and private. This could manifest as an intense attraction/flirtation, your public image, or a battle for control over money (specifically, shared resources like taxes, debts, loans or your partner's finances). However it shows up, the underlying theme will be someone attempting to control the entire scenario. But this is not a situation where any one person can call the shots. They may not be aware of this, but now you are. As Venus and Mars come together, you'll be at your best if you leave those power struggles behind and focus on your social talents. You'll have a ton of charm, influence, energy and drive at your disposal, and everyone will see this.
Venus and the Sun are heating up your career sector, but the square to Pluto can put you at cross purposes with someone else's agenda. This could be a romantic or business partner, or you may simply become aware of how your growing confidence impacts your one on one relationships. How much influence do they have over your goals? These may not be open, obvious battles, so pay attention to how others respond when you're ambitious. Are they supportive, or do they undermine you? Rather than engaging in an outright battle of wills (there will be significant damage if you try to fight them) allow the union of Venus and Mars to carry you forward as you continue towards your career or future goals. Venus/Mars can bring a "Yes" regarding a job search/application, go ahead for a project or desired response from higher-ups.
Venus and the Sun (your ruler) in your sector of opportunities are pumped up by the square from Pluto, pushing you to go further than you normally would. Issues involving long distance (or out of reach) romance, travel, education or legal matters will feel urgent, but it's best if you exercise some caution during this influence. Try to focus that energy back on your daily routine, health or exercise (this is a good influence to re-start your self-care regime). After March 31, Venus and Mars will join forces and offer a much friendlier energy in all of the above areas. You can go after what you want, and have a high chance of success, once that do-or-die feeling has passed.
You're not one to gamble, but the square from Pluto to the Sun and Venus (in your sector of shared resources) can see you taking chances that are out of character. Scenarios involving intimacy or shared finances (taxes, debts, loans or your partner's finances) can be hot button issues where you may feel like pushing your luck. There is success coming your way, but not if you try to force things. The union of Venus and Mars suggest that whatever is meant to happen, will fall into place naturally. You don't need to micromanage, and if you do, you may actually do some damage. Stand back and allow what's yours to come to you.
The Sun and Venus (your ruler) are promising big things in your relationship sector. But first, you'll have to get past that tense square from Pluto. Old habits, fears, family power struggles or realizations about the past can be challenging, but ultimately clarifying. Use this tension to propel yourself forward (you're not chained to those limits anymore). Don't panic if it feels overwhelming, because Venus and Mars promise a much smoother ride further into the week. The Venus/Mars union suggests a happy blend of passion and intimacy, all served up on your terms. It doesn't get much better than this.
Pluto's square to the Sun and Venus can trigger information, messages or conversations that disrupt your routine. You may have some very definite ideas about what you want regarding work, co-workers or your own, personal health/exercise routine, but be cautious about becoming fixated on certain results. What you think is best for you (or someone that you're attempting to help) may be too much or too fast. After March 31st, Venus and Mars promise a much smoother flow; a solution could materialize or all the pieces could fall into place. Effort and desire will blend nicely and others will respond favourably to your motivations.
What is it you really want, and why? Pluto's demanding square to the Sun and Venus will fire up your need for attention, appreciation and a desired outcome, but the root of your efforts may be more complicated than you realize. Consider that it's not just "something you deserve" that you're after, but a guarantee of future security. Whether it's money or companionship that's motivating you, desperation/fear are not the best ways to get what you want. If you can step back from the conviction that your survival depends on getting X, Y or Z, you'll see that Venus and Mars are bringing you something special, anyway. But this will happen because of your natural confidence, not through manipulation or force.
The Sun and Venus promise love, contentment and happy times at home, as long as you can handle Pluto's influence (from your sign) with grace. You'll feel compelled to push for answers/results, but push too hard and you'll end up breaking something. Sure, you know what's best; it's your home/family/personal domain. But in the arena of domestic concerns, being right does not always make you happy. As Venus and Mars join forces, you'll see that things will get sorted, and the outcome will be in your favour. Stop pushing and see what happens when you give other people some breathing room. This influence supports successful renovations, relocations, new relationships or mortgage/rental agreements.
The Sun and Venus in your communication sector are making you very aware of what you think you want. But Pluto's square suggests there's more underneath the surface. You may be saying one thing (and really believing it) but check your deeper motivations. As Venus and Mars draw together, you'll become much clearer on the actual truth behind your words, and the best way to phrase things. There is a very specific combination of force and charm that you'll need to apply, and you'll get it just right.
Pluto's square to the Sun and Venus in your security sector can up the passion, trigger an obsession or make you far "greedier" than you thought possible. It's ok to want something/someone, even if you feel overwhelmed by the intensity. After March 31, you should feel more in control as Venus and Mars give you exactly what you need. Use this influence to state your emotional requirements, ask for a pay raise or put your relationship cards on the table.
