- Sun in Aries square Pluto in Capricorn: 19 degrees
- Venus Rx in Pisces square Saturn Rx in Sagittarius: 27 degrees
Sun/Pluto can trigger a crisis that shines a light on shadow issues. New beginnings, freedom or impulse will have a darker side, as anxiety leaks through. A square involving Pluto intensifies its power, even though fear of weakness is increased (overcompensation is the result).
When confronted with this aspect, consider what's behind the aggression. You may be the one compulsively charging ahead, or someone else may react to your initiative.
The Venus/Saturn Dance
Venus Rx/Saturn Rx can feel like a painful deadlock, as you revisit an issue and encounter limits. Those limits are reality. Whether you see that you have to end something, or intensify your focus on what you want, the way forward involves accepting reality. This is what you can't have. This is what you must do. It will be obvious - Saturn always is.
This square will perfect again on April 21st (27 degrees) when Venus is direct. From April 8th to the 21st, they will remain within orb of each other, which means the square will be active for the entire time. And Chiron will be lurking in the background, at 26 degrees Pisces.
I know - not fun. But this is the current reality, so let's deal with it. Chiron's influence means this will be an essential confrontation with a wound - what you're afraid of losing, where you feel least attractive, where you feel less worthy. Where you hurt. You can't avoid this (Saturn won't let you) and that will be a good thing. You'll either push past the pain and get what you want, or you'll understand that it's time to focus your energy elsewhere.
Even with Saturn's structure, Venus in Pisces is still about allowing - it will happen or it won't. You'll know whether you should give it one, last try, or whether you should just let go. Sun/Pluto may urge you to struggle against the inevitable. But that's just your fear talking. Sun/Pluto really wants you to evolve. Stop fighting it and just go with the deconstruction.
Yes, this applies even if you are on track to getting something desirable. The prospect of finally hearing "yes" can stir up all kinds of fears. What if it hurts? What if you're exposed? These things may happen. But it will hurt even more to remain frozen in your current state. The message in these aspects is that it hurts to love, whether you're opening yourself up or shutting something down. You can't avoid the pain, but you can take the sweetness of release, or the joy of acceptance, as part of the package.
