Venus square Pluto is one hot catalyst of an aspect, astro-passage or transit. It’s a guaranteed trigger point for karmic love affairs, libido reboots and obsessive, amazing morphs of art or personal aesthetics. Recall that Venus rules creativity, fashion and beauty as well as romance. But Venus square Pluto may also, unfortunately, bring on an attack of the Love Zombie virus. People can project all their inner psychic intensity onto a person or situation that is simply too flimsy to hold it.
Once a lifetime – if that – Pluto will square your Venus. This is often a time when you enjoy (?) an over the top life-altering, self-actualising off-the-passion-Richter scale karmic crush or relationship. As Pluto is a slow-moving outer planet, such a transit can take up to two years to play out. When Pluto squares Venus, anticipate ruts being busted and endorphins roused that you did not even know existed. Spiritual growth at Warp Speed and intense chemistry are the signature “side-effects” of a Pluto square Venus transit. They can become Reset Romances, that help set you back into being your authentic self.
But Venus squares Pluto all the time. Think power-tripper relationship politics, sexual grudge flashpoint, karmic-echo encounters, extreme dating and fast-tracked transformation via sex or love. It’s usually occurs twice a year and is a good window of opportunity for de-stagnating a situation that has become too stuck. Anyone you meet when Venus is square Pluto likely IS someone you have known before. There is an element of fate to the encounter for sure. But remember the Venus square Pluto rules!
Standard (Recommended) Venus square Pluto Operating Procedure
(1) Just because something is “karmic” does not mean it is a healthy or desirable relationship. “It’s Karmic” has become a bit like the new “It’s Complicated.” Retain normal, functional relationship rules.
(2) No obsession, no stalking, no tequila texting if you can help it. Try to enjoy the intensity and transformation sans actually transforming yourself straight into something unattractively psycho even needy.
(3) Any Plutonic astro-weirding is best greeted from a position of strength. Naivety is naff under such stars. But Venus square Pluto stirs deep soul vibe. Love Triangles and scenarios where unresolved sexual tension (the favourite gambit of long running soap operas) seem to be a common theme around Venus square Pluto.
(4) Theory: A good deal of the intensity being generated may be because you are greeting your True Self once again.
