“I seem to have loved you in numberless forms, numberless times,
In life after life, in age after age forever.
My spell bound heart has made and re-made the necklace of songs
That you take as gift, wear round your neck in your many forms
In life after life, in age after age forever…
Whenever I hear old chronicles of love, its age-old pain,
Its ancient tale of being apart or together,
As I stare on and on into the past, in the end you emerge
Clad in the light of a pole-star piercing the darkness of time:
You become an image of what is remembered forever.” Tagore
Venus is is Aries now and will be moving up to a square to Pluto. In mythology Pluto was the lord of death and rebirth and Venus the goddess of love and pleasure. These planets together can speak about profound love and its inherent connection to loss.
There is a tendency when these planets are together to draw in karmic or past life relationships that can be very passionate but often difficult to resolve.
On a deeper level these two influences represent the opportunity to connect to a deeper understanding of the meaning of love through the processing of pain on a deeper level – as they say in hospice – to shed another outer layer of the onion skin.
Under this influence it bodes well to look at issues of self esteem and self worth to see if they need to be updated. Venus also symbolizes resources and how we provide for ourselves based on what we feel we deserve.
Recently I saw a photo of a woman in Dublin, Ireland in the Women’s March holding a sign that read,”Fight Like a Girl.” Pluto can bring back powers that were lost due to painful experiences if you clear obstacles that are in the way. Progress will be made by overcoming and transforming old beliefs in this area and as the shamans say – shedding an old skin.
This aspect is also about connecting with what you feel most passionate about in your life in a deeper or clearer way.
After aspecting Pluto Venus will move on to squaring Uranus – and this offers the opportunity to move forward in a new way – freer of the burdens of the past.
Venus is at 8 degrees now and one of the Sabian symbols for that is,”A teacher gives new symbolic forms to traditional images.”
