When Venus unites with Pluto in Capricorn on December 1st, it can be make or break time for love and money. What's been hidden, submerged or denied will come out but the trine to Mars in Virgo (December 1st to December 5th) ensures that practical assessments and measured reactions will keep things on the positive side.
Venus and Pluto unite in your career sector, introducing opportunities for advancement through cooperation. Strategic business partnerships, associating with the "right" people and investigating what others can do for you will be themes. You can manifest some serious career goals with this one but any progress will be fuelled by hard work and attention to detail. Mars (your ruler) in your sector of work and health hooks into this aspect and insists that you put 110% into upcoming developments. This is a positive aspect but make sure you don't indulge in power struggles. This is not the time to prove that you're number one.

Relationships intensify as Venus and Pluto unite in your partnership sector. New levels of commitment and understanding can be achieved now as surface conventions are stripped away. Blatant honesty is what's called for; take a look at what's really going on. Mars in your communication sector enables this by pushing you to dig a little deeper and pay attention to the details. Say what you mean (just make sure it's backed up with solid facts). All this honesty could mark the end of a relationship, but only if things were heading in that direction to begin with. If this does happen, know that it's for the best because the foundation was crumbling anyway.
Your quest for self improvement continues as Venus and Pluto unite in your sector of work and health.

No more labouring in the shadows; this is your moment to claim the prize.

Venus and Pluto (your ruler) join in your communications sector, uncovering critical messages, potent words and intense ideas. Saying what you really need/want will feel unavoidable so get those cards on the table.

Venus and Pluto join in your sector of resources, showing you how to get what you really want. You'll notice that what you really want is changing (perhaps dramatically).

Venus and Pluto stir things up in your sector of secrets, emphasizing what's hidden, forbidden, intriguing or overlooked.
