“The more connections you and your lover make, not just between your bodies, but between your minds, your hearts and your souls, the more you will strengthen the fabric of your relationship, and the more real moments you will experience together.”
-- Barbara De Angelis
When the planet of love and beauty meets up with the god of the Underworld (Pluto) in the sturdy sign of Capricorn on January 16, our relationships need to be powerful and Rock-of-Gibraltar worthy. This includes every kind of relationship -- from the bedroom to the boardroom. Capricorn is a very business-minded sign, so there may be a convergence of sex and work, or secret sexual alliances forming in the workplace.
Capricorn is the sign of integrity, and we are being asked to fortify every single layer in the fabric of our relationships. Where there are cracks in the foundation, this powerful collision between Venus and Pluto will demand nothing short of a total metamorphosis. We can no longer relate in a false or insincere manner without Pluto bringing some kind of eruption of whatever has been buried to the surface.
This is a time to let go of old grudges and get to the bottom of things. Any concealed negativity or gripes need unearthing now in order to preserve the strength of relationships. There is an all-or-nothing intensity to this planetary pairing. Ask yourself, what it would take to make your relationships in both love and business rock solid? Where do you need to get more real with yourself and others? Where do you compromise your integrity in order to remain related?
If you must tear it all down to start again, it’s better than trying to build on a rocky foundation. If your relationship has been a house of cards, you can expect a toppling effect now. Let the deep insights of Pluto bring all of these issues to the fore, and brace yourself for some major healing and rebuilding now.
