Venus makes an exact conjunction with Pluto on December 1; what a passionate way to start the month! In earthy, commitment-minded Capricorn, there is no better cosmic pairing to fuel the fire in our hearts and discover someone or something worth our intense adoration. Likely, you have already been feeling the growing heat of this passion-furnace as Venus -- the Goddess of Love and Beauty -- has been inching towards the Lord of the Underworld, Pluto. We may have had to make some tough choices as far as our commitments as to free up energy to uncover those juicy areas in our heart that have been guarded, or passive, for too long. It is no less than an awakening and because of Venus's natural penchant towards pairing and all things beautiful, it may be experienced through intimate partnerships or artistic projects.
Pluto conjunct Venus can be a wildly sexy time where we are willing to go deeper with those we love and hide less behind our pleasant, socially-sanctioned facades. We are impassioned to stand up for those values and outlying projects we are most ardent about and given the opportunity to strip away anything that keeps our authentic selves from shining in our relationships and our art. So participate in this change, lest it bites you from behind. As JFK said, "Those who make peaceful revolution impossible, make violent revolution inevitable." It takes a courageous and resolute attitude, but we are primed to see our relationships for what they are and fight for truth in our lives and discard what's not contributing to our fulfillment. Our shallow fancies won't hold water as the effect of this cosmic pair plunges us toward the people, ideas and relationships that have the most to offer to our growth. We just have to recognize them and hold on.
Like Ghandi said, be the change you wish to see in the world. You may be part of the revolution outside or not, but this transit takes the revolution inside where we are called to transform on a personal level so as to affect collective change; such is the nature of a personal planet - Venus - coming into contact with an outer planet - Pluto. Each one of us makes ripples that affect psychological climate and we are in a window where we are especially tuned in to our core values and our equipped with the emotional muscle and clarity to fight for what be believe in. Enjoy your evolution.
