I just posted about the pushy Mars/Pluto square, so let's follow that with a look at the upcoming Venus in Aries square to Pluto in Capricorn. It will be exact on March 31st (at 11 degrees) but you may be feeling it already.
Venus in Aries is selfish. She puts herself first in matters of love, money and self-esteem. She's also impulsive (something looks tempting, she throws herself at it). These are not bad qualities, but when they are intensified by a square from obsessive Pluto, things can fly off the rails.
You may experience this influence in one of two ways:
- "I must have him/her/it ASAP! Gimme!" That's you feeling things from the Venus angle. The object of your desire belongs to someone else? Even better. Venus in Aries loves a challenge. Just be aware that your competitive instincts (when Aries is involved, it always goes back to competition) are being cranked up by Pluto (power). There's a significant amount of fire here, and you will get burned if you overstep someone's boundaries (Capricorn).
- If you try to limit someone's freedom (by manipulation or withholding affection) that's you working the Pluto angle. Pluto controls what it feels threatened by, and what's more threatening than freedom-loving/s**t disturbing Venus in Aries? Pay attention to who you're trying to manipulate, and why. Note that this applies to exciting but vaguely threatening scenarios/opportunities as well. "I'll take it, but only if everything goes exactly the way I want it to." Sorry, no deal. Venus in Aries is a fresh opportunity that you don't get to micromanage.
No matter how you experience this influence, know that Pluto exposes your deepest desires. In this case, it will make you aware of what is authentic (to you) regarding relationships, values and resources. Pay attention to what you react most strongly to.
Those with planets/angles between 10-11 degrees Aries, Cancer, Capricorn and Libra will feel this one.
