๐Ÿšข๐Ÿ”ฅAll the Ships on Fire: Venus square Pluto๐Ÿšข๐Ÿ”ฅ

About a third of a way into April and Aries season, we will be navigating the energies of Venus square Pluto. This is power struggles in relationships...

As I write this, Venus is at 23 Aries and Pluto is at 26 degree, so it is approaching a square already. This aspect will be exact on April 12th and be most closely felt between April 10th - 14th with particular emphasis on the 11th-13th.

This aspect will fully dissipate by April 15th when Venus changes into Taurus and the orb widens too much to be still in square to Pluto.

What does this all mean then?

๐Ÿšข๐Ÿ”ฅ Relationships will be Tested ๐Ÿšข๐Ÿ”ฅ

Important relationships in your life will be put under some type of stress or healing crisis. This is to give them a chance to "purge" and transform, as Pluto likes to do. It might be subconscious feelings or deeply buried wounding (look partially to what might have come up during the Mercury conjunct Chiron transit on April 9th for some extra clues) that comes up wanting to be released and healed.

Either way, relationships that have endured some rocky sailing already will be well equipped to cruise through this energy. Those that might be confronting this for the first time, however, might struggle a bit to keep their feet on the ground.

Note: This doesn't have to necessarily manifest between 2 people, but could also be within and of yourself. Look to the house positions of where late Aries is for you and late Pluto in Capricorn. This will give you a lot more clues as to what is being challenged or thrown into friction.

๐Ÿšข๐Ÿ”ฅ What's the difference between these two energies?๐Ÿšข๐Ÿ”ฅ

For my LOTR fans out there (as I am most definitely one of them!), here's some Gif themed visuals to help you get a better capture on this energies.

Venus in Aries is a little bit like...

Key words: "oops energy", curious, childlike, impatient, impulsive

Pluto in Capricorn is a little bit like...

The Witch King of Angmar on a fell beasty wielding a fire sword...need I say more, haha? Key words: conniving, force to be reckoned with, fierce, destructive

And the goal we want to work to balance these two energies is...

Wield the sword, don't be slain by the sword. Be a bearer of truth and be clear of mind. Be aware of the "dead" within you. Stand in your power.

๐Ÿšข๐Ÿ”ฅ Honor the energy and let it work its course ๐Ÿšข๐Ÿ”ฅ

With Pluto transits, you have to let them do their drilling work. They want to excavate something deeper in you, and if you try and resist, force, or control it, it will only make power struggles between the issue even worse. Do your best to practice detachment (something Pluto struggles with as it embodies fixed water / fixed emotional energy).

If this issue is arising between you and another, take some space from them and the topic at hand. What is about this situation that is REALLY bothering you? Do some journaling to get out the feelings and thoughts in your heart and head. Go for a walk into nature, pray, talk to your angels. Help yourself get to the root of the feelings and beliefs that are really bugging you about this. Often, it goes to a multi-faceted root of belief that makes this feel that type of way.

If are clued in to what houses this is for you astrologically (best notated by a professional astrologer so you get accuracy of house position by degrees), try this witnessing and reflection task:

Venus transiting at 26 degrees of Aries

House # _____

Main Themes of House:

What have I been present to in those themes lately?

What does this house have to say about this matter specifically?

(Journal 3-5 sentences here or as much as you feel called)

Any planets involved here? If so, how does that weigh in?

Pluto transiting at 26 degrees of Capricorn

House # _____

Main Themes of House: ________, _________, _______, _________

Journal 3-5 sentences here for each or as much as you feel called

- What have I been present to in these themes lately?

- What does this house have to say about this matter specifically?

- What does rational thought / my higher self have to say about this matter?

- Any planets involved here? If so, how does that weigh in?

Now, how can these two house systems work together?

What do they have in common?

How can harmony be achieved?

(Journal 3-5 sentences here or as much as you feel called)

Bonus: After journaling one or all parts of the above, do some EFT to tap on beliefs that need to be cleared and/or dance it out!

This might turn into a full on automatic writing session with your guides and angels. If so, let it be that too! There's no wrong or right way to go about this. It is simply an excavation of the subconscious beliefs churning within you, and how we can better shift them to love, compassion, and openness to let go.

๐Ÿšข๐Ÿ”ฅ Finally, don't neglect their opposites ๐Ÿšข๐Ÿ”ฅ

And, as always, I like to remind people that when there is a deep fixation on two energies in a chart, we can always look to their polarities (often being neglected) to achieve greater balance. The counterpoints to these energies would be Libra and Cancer. So, make sure you are also allowing and making space for these themes and feelings in your life too.

Cancer energy key words would be:

- feelings, emotions, tears

- self care, taking breaks, being kind to oneself

- mothering yourself, healing mother wounds

- being tender with yourself, self nurturance

Libra energy key words would be:

-balance, harmony, ease

- partnerships, relationships, romance

- beauty, pleasure, aesthetics

- reading, learning, listening, music
