Today at 8:38pm, Venus harmonizes herself with Pluto, forming a stabilizing trine angle between the two planets. This is our only aspect today, and as we prepare for tomorrow’s New Moon in Gemini this aspect is here to invite us to walk through our own personal underworld. But not without support! Venus is the planet of the senses, art, surfaces, glamour, and Pluto is the lord of control, power struggle, and transformation. At this point in the lunar cycle, we are all likely dealing with ways to shed some excess energetic baggage. Venus trine Pluto forms a conduit between senses and shadow, between art and underworld, sensory experience and the richness of truth.
Venus trine Pluto is love in the underworld. A safe and stable bridge to what lies beneath the surface of our psyche. Engaging this material now brings growth, even if it is a bit painful. Remember that for Scorpio, Pluto’s ruler, cycles of death and letting go are a key part of one’s energetic narrative. Scorpio is simultaneously scorpion, eagle, and phoenix—burial, flight, and reincarnation. Use today’s planetary energy to engage deeply with your own dark matter. We’re longing for transformation, and this connection between Venus and Pluto puts us on the proper path.
Spellwork, intentional practices, or any other kind of artistic ritual can be performed tonight. A kind of saying ‘goodbye’ to what you’ve outgrown. Pick flowers for Venus, hold black tourmaline for Pluto. Tomorrow the Moon will be new in Gemini, and a fresh narrative opens up before us. There is richness in darkness, my dears. You are your best guide, at this point. Fear nothing.
