Venus will reach the same degree of Capricorn occupied by Pluto at 8:29 pm EST tomorrow (Wednesday). The conjunction will probably correspond to strong emotions. That does not mean you should hide under the bed. All told, there could be a very good outcome to the aspect.
That’s because the responses associated with a merger of Venus and Pluto reveal important information about yourself and others, information that will ultimately manifest in reality.
When once asked about his own natal Venus-Pluto conjunction in Cancer, Al H. Morrison reportedly replied “lust” in a salacious tone. His response revealed a provocative astrologer with wry humor, which is what he was.
Since we have the word of Al Morrison that lust could be one of the strong emotions provoking you and others tomorrow, it would make sense to consider what happened when another notable personage held forth on the subject shortly after a Libra conjunction of Venus and Pluto in 1976.
Late in his first campaign for president, Jimmy Carter disclosed that he had “looked on many women with lust.” The comment generated some flack from people who would not have voted for him anyway. Beyond that, it did not cost him the election to reveal what he had in common with nearly everybody else. There is a valuable lesson in that. When you respond to issues that surround Venus conjunct Pluto, tell the truth to and about yourself as the first order of business, so as to reveal your character and enhance your reputation.
Neither Al Morrison nor Jimmy Carter was out of character when confronting the issue of lust. If anything, both enhanced their reputation. Most people can recognize that sort of honesty even if the subject matter is sensitive, and that should be your guide when you encounter some touchy subjects tomorrow (and likely today, too). Each member in the conjunction will have something to say to you, as will the field of energy where it takes place.
Venus will say, “be receptive.” Let reality lead. Dance with the music that is playing. Above all, accept yourself. Show yourself being honest with and about yourself. Do as you are. That will make you attractive to those who are willing to be honest with themselves. If you can further inspire others to relax and smile, hearts will open to receive you in turn.
Pluto will say, “fear only fear.” Fear of what others might think is speculative at best, crippling at worst, closing your heart. Inspiring fear in others as a way of dealing with your own only closes their hearts to you. Uncomfortable situations become less so when everybody in the situation faces the music together. All it takes is one person to take the risk of being vulnerable first, showing how it’s done. Being vulnerable is not giving away your power; refusing to be vulnerable is giving away your power. Those who abuse or ridicule your vulnerability do not harm your reputation, only their own.
Capricorn will say “make it real.” When Al Morrison spoke of his own Venus-Pluto conjunction in emotional Cancer, he was fearlessly revealing his own feelings, and provoking you to be aware to yours. When Jimmy Carter confessed to lust following a Venus-Pluto conjunction in idealistic Libra, he overcame trepidation, made himself vulnerable, and demonstrated self-acceptance of as the only attainable ideal. In return, he was accepted.
The energy field of Capricorn is the field of manifestation. It is where ideals take lasting form. It is where emotions take lasting direction. What you reveal in response to Venus conjunct Pluto will, some way or another, contribute to posterity. Such are the times we live in, such is your responsibility. The example you set is what others will follow.
We have had more than four years of Pluto’s powerhouse in the field of manifestation. That’s long enough to have either been acclimated or defeated. Please seize the day tomorrow and show that you are not among those who have lost heart, so that others may find their heart again in your own. Whether it be lust or some other powerful emotion you encounter, act as if your response will determine whether those not yet born will be happy or miserable with responses of their own. This is no time to hide. Reveal yourself, and reveal the future.
