Is a Pluto conjunct Venus transit always hot? An Aquarius Doctor finds that she has very little immunity to her crush on a Leo neurosurgeon at work.
Generally, I try and keep any missives to letting you know you’re awesome and saying thank you.
But, seriously, what is up with this Venus Retrograde caper? Is it so hot/weird as I also have a Pluto conjunct Venus transit? Thank you so much for covering this action in your scopes, as it has been invaluable in keeping me sane and hopeful thus far.
I was minding my own business, walked onto the hospital ward at work and fell head over heels in infatuation with another doctor. He’s short, burly and looks like a Leo. Not my type, probably too young and a neurosurgeon who I have to work with.
Who, I might add, I don’t know and have barely managed much of a conversation with. I’m convinced that there’s some karmic connection and have a ridiculous visceral reaction every time our paths cross, up to and including heart palpitations. I’m aware that I may be insane. I mean, I’m 33, have two children and am an Aquarian for fuqs sake. It is so not me and has never happened before.
I’m also aware that the above-noted life situation may not be a prime selling point for moi as hot property, nor the fact that my Toro ex (who left me with no notice after 10 years and literally stole the couch on his way out) is back living in my spare room due to his general hopelessness and the fact I’m a kind hearted idiot. And he probably thinks he’s my boyfriend on that basis.
In fact, he may have even told hot burly maybe-Leo neurosurgeon that he’s my boyfriend as their professional paths crossed last week. Holy crap, what if he said we’re married? (We’re not). Now I’m paranoid. You see? I’m insane, clearly.
I’m sure that hot Leo neurosurgeon is having the same visceral reaction to me. Which is making interaction quite awkward as we’re both too busy having runs of ventricular tachycardia and pretending we’re cool.
Its made me reappraise everything. I was managing to compartmentalize my Toro-ex living arrangements up to now on the whole “good for the children, I work long hours” basis, but all of a sudden I want to stab him with a fork for being a miserable, borderline-alcoholic, cock-blocking robot sent to destroy my love life.
The Pluto-Venus transit is just beginning! I really hope I’m not insane and just making all this up in my head. I can’t quite work out what’s worse:
a) Me hitting on someone at work, therefore running the risk of being branded a cougar and occupational health and safety risk plus or minus being rejected.
b) Succumbing to an urge to stalk that borders on the creepy.
c) Nothing ever coming of this, thus proving that I must have just made it all up in my head.
My Aquarian brain can’t cope. Nor can my Libra moon, as I now spend 10 minutes every morning agonizing over whether I should go with the ylang-ylang or monoi body lotion and triaging its seductive/mystical qualities.
Stay awesome and love your work.
My Dear Dr. Aquarius,
Pluto conjunct Venus transits are once in a lifetime, formidable, karmic and hot. Your Venus is being Plutonified. It’s spiritual, self-actualizing and hot endorphins. Honestly, you are single, and heaps of people meet at work. It’s brilliant as you can get to know one another gradually and without the awkwardness of a ‘date’ situation.
Pluto on Venus can = a once in a lifetime karmic romance. So it is either the Leo neurosurgeon or he is just the “fluffer” to help get you in the Plutonic mindset and clear out the Toro Ex.
Don’t do anything cheesy at work. But do mention to the Leo Neurosurgeon that you hear he and your Toro Ex met/know one another. Say something about how you’re so happy you had an amicable separation. Assess Leo Neurosurgeon’s status – single/married/gay etc. – and consider not wearing monoi oil as I imagine it would be quite cloying in an operating theatre. Personally, if I were having a procedure, I would prefer the person to smell like a ruthlessly proficient floral aldehyde, one of the frostier Chanels, for example.
Also, Leos don’t like monoi oil type scents, usually. You’re still in your Taurus-Ex scent-settings! So, Pluto conjunct Venus transits are enormous and you can riff off them to transform every element of your life. Going with them unlocks an almost supernatural source of energy and focus. But most of all you crave authenticity of self-expression and genuine intimacy. So, here you are!
Venus Retrograde adds to the weird/reconnecting with past-life-lover energy. What does everyone else think?
