How deep is your love? You’re going to find out, for better or for worse. This transit is renowned for bringing jealousy and greed right to the surface, from their depths in our psychological history.

Let’s consider jealousy. For those in committed relationships, even if we have no reason to distrust our partners, we may feel as though we can’t let them out of our sight or we have to know everything they’re doing. These are sure signs we need to relax, let go and develop inner trust. Those feelings are coming from us, not them.

People who don’t have a sweetheart may find themselves filled with sexual energy. Talk about distracting! Amazingly, all that lower-chakra mojo can be redirected into other areas, with incredible results. We’ve got plenty of self-control; we just have to use it!

How about turning that drive and intensity toward earning some money? Resources flow today, be they inner or outer.

If you have Venus conjunct Pluto as a natal aspect:

You’re the type who exudes sex appeal, even when you’re not consciously trying to. And although you pretend not to notice, you’re aware of every eye that’s turned on you and every lusty thought coming your way.

At an early age you learned that love is power, and from that point forward you’ve developed a well-honed skill to charm and seduce whomever you desire. You get involved in intense, messy relationships charged with passion and rife with jealousy. You crave and yet fear the deep and profound connection that can develop between two people, so you draw others to you and hold them at arm’s length at the same time, making it impossible to truly connect at the deepest level.

Fear pervades your heart, and you are always on the lookout for signs that your lover is leaving you. You cannot relax and trust in their love, and at the same time, your possessiveness will not permit you to let them go.

It is here — where you must face your fears and bravely allow your lover to choose you — that the most sublime experience occurs. When you finally take the leap into true commitment, there you will find the greatest passion and love of all.
