Venus is the planet of love and Pluto is the planet of destruction and regeneration – so what happens when these two planets squabble? Simply put, things are going to change. In astrology, when two planets form a 90-degree angle, they are said to be in a square aspect. When a square occurs between two planets, it creates disharmony in the skies that is felt down here on Earth.
Even though the square aspect is widely known to be challenging and stressful, it’s more like bickering siblings or one of those couples who go through life nit picking at each other. While it may not be fun during the time of squabble, the lessons learned through these experiences often help us to develop strength of character and the ability to overcome difficulties.
Venus will square Pluto from November 5 – 12, 2007. This is definitely a time to expect the unexpected! You may notice that you, yourself, may be a bit more emotional than usual – possibly going from one emotional extreme to the other, and not always with a clear-cut reason why. Things that normally don’t affect you will become suddenly irritating, your libido might suddenly kick into overdrive, and you may find that things you once thought were so important no longer hold much importance at all. It doesn’t matter if you are male or female, you are feeling the affects of Venus squaring Pluto: the Week of Celestial PMS.
The first rule of surviving an astrologically challenging period of time is understanding that you are not alone. Expect the people you like and love to be a little cranky, a tad more judgmental, and sometimes downright mean. This is an emotional and reactive time for all of us. When you are aware of this principal, you are less likely to over-react and fuel a situation that could have been avoided – or worse – cause one!
When Venus squares Pluto the effects are most noticeably demonstrated through our relationships, but the lessons are very personal. When we are challenged, we usually take it as a bad thing, but what we are really being given is the opportunity to grow. Learning lessons from pain affords us to deepen our sense of appreciation, because we have the opportunity to come to a place of deeper understanding.
Many of us will have an epiphany or two during the course of this week. Patterns will become more clear, and personal denials will be stripped away. Some relationships will come to an end and others will be strengthened – because of the challenges they faced as hidden resentments rise to the surface.
No matter what your sign, whether you have love, want love, or need to free yourself of a love that is no longer lovely – when Venus squares Pluto, something is going to change!
Earth Signs: Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn
If you find yourself feeling overburdened with responsibility, it is because the time has come for you to re-prioritize. Just because you are accustomed to taking on more than your fair share of responsibility doesn’t mean you have to continue to such extremes.
Air Signs: Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius
Your charms may not work their magic in their usual ways, probably because you have over-analyzed everything to death. Take a more creative approach with your perceptive side, and by showing more compassion, you are less likely to lose your sense of control.
Fire Signs: Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius
Your ego is likely to be inflamed, and your fiery spirit is likely to be perceived as volatile. If you are overwhelmed and tired, cut yourself some slack and take a little break. You are likely to have low energy. It’s the perfect time to be thinking rather than doing.
Water Signs: Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces
Pay particular attention to old patterns and habits that have ceased to bear fruit by stepping outside of yourself. You will fare far better if you think things through with logic rather than strictly relying on your senses.
While this time of transition may seem a little dark and scary, filled with doom and gloom, it is not a time to be feared. This is a time of change – the purpose of this astrological event. When Venus squares Pluto, it is a time to let go of some of our emotional baggage and take another step toward loving ourselves.
