When Venus Meets Pluto
As I was working on an astro chart for a client yesterday, one of her astrocartography crossings jumped out at me! And I knew this crossing was q big part of Her Story.
She's never had 'luck' in love. And even though relationships are challenging for the luckiest of us, when you live with a Venus/Pluto astrocartography crossing, maintaining a loving relationship without quarreling and other yukky stuff is SUPER challenging.
I know whereof I speak, for many long years I too lived in such an astrocartography climate, and recently when I re-visited this area on vacation, once again I discovered myself becoming a 'spitfire' which is not normally the way I behave in my current relationship!
What can one do to mitigate this challenging Venus/Pluto? What worked for me was becoming aware in the moment. After 'acting-out', I realized my behavior was not something I wished to incorporate and wasn't 'me'. I didn't wish to claim or embody this energy, nor did I wish to incorporate it into my relationship. So I let it go.
Choose NOT to react. Choose to let go your anger. Choose not to engage in a quarrel.
Not easy, but it can be done.
Here's what Astrodienst writes about this crossing:
This crossing focuses entirely on the area of interpersonal relations. Love, partnership and sexuality are the key issues and become the touchstones of trust and commitment.
You have great sensual appeal. Meetings with people are shaped by the intensity of your erotic fantasies. In this place, you are seduced by the appeal of the forbidden and the extreme. Common sense and carefulness are overcome by sexual urges.
Affairs or secret liaisons are difficult to hide in this place. There may be relationship crises, accompanied by loud discussions, accusations and petty property claims. If you are not to risk upsetting the basis of your marriage or partnership, you are challenged to rearrange your relationship, abandon old concepts and calmly overcome your fear of being alone.
*******The key words in the above (for me) are "relationship crises". Oh yeh!
