Venus Conjunct Pluto – Till Death Do Us Part

rape of prosperinaIf you have Venus conjunct Pluto, you’re bound to experience interactions that are out of this world.

Venus rules love and money, relationships and beauty. Pluto rules power, death and rebirth and the shadow side.  When you put these planets together, it gets real interesting.

Let’s see:

  • The shadow side of beauty
  • Betrayal in love
  • Powerful attraction
  • Death of a relationship or your lover
  • Obsession with love, money or power
  • The black market
  • Prostitution
  • Powerful alliances
  • Extortion
  • Rape
  • Taboo relationships

It’s very hard for anything to be exactly “clean” with an aspect like this. The unconscious drives a person.  You attract because you’re compelling but you repel people for the same reason. You meet the shadow side of women as a matter of routine.

This does not mean there is no high expression. Matter of fact, I can’t think of anything in a chart that better says, “Till death do us part”.  Many people are supported by making that kind of all-or-nothing vow.

Check the house in your chart where the conjunction falls. Expect super-intense energy to be  focused there. If I were you, I’d plan to use it.

Do you have a Venus Pluto conjunction in your chart? What house? How has it manifested?

  1. I don’t have this conjunction in my chart. However recently, when Tr Venus was conjunct my 7H Virgo Pluto, I (Venus – woman) had my annual (7H rules over health issues) mammogram (Pluto rules over genitalia and hidden health concerns) performed.

    1. Yes and no. The energies interact but there is a clash there. Like it’s your energy but it’s possible another is involved, or you think they are.

      Compare this to the two energies, combined, and acting in concert.

      1. Hi, I’m a libra, aries moon, with a Scorpio rising with Venus, Mars and Pluto stellium in Sag, in the first house. Venus and Pluto being the closest conjunction.

        I’m a guy, and I feel so odd in the dating sphere. Mostly raised by women, and even now there’s more feminine energy around me. Strong, maternal women.

        Relationships can be described through the above themes for sure. Passionate, on and off. Withdraws and power issues. I am working on myself and my relationships, romantic, friendships and all. Healing, I just came out of another Venus Pluto relationship. Realising I had to let go yet again. Of something that might seem real but could be obsession. 🙂 ?

        Thanks for reading ?

  2. The opposition here. What I read is that with the opp, you’re always blaming the other or you are blamed for these dark things. Also today reading in the forum a comment you wrote about pluto venus and mentioned ‘pluto degrades venus’ that stayed with me- because it’s disturbing but maybe disturbingly accurate? the energy of pluto embelishes venus? I certainly will rebel if it’s meant for describing synastry as well- pluto person comes to venus in whatever conjunct, opposite and degrades. This is what I don’t understand about pluto/power/submission dynamics in natal and synastry overlay. If someone conjuncts your pluto- you’re not a leaf who stands there being crushed by a force. If you have that aspect in your natal, you are already a force in your own sense. You have that energy. Someone’s pluto shouldn’t be moving the dynamic to its mere liking, crusing you. I don’t know if this makes sense but that’s how I think.

  3. I have Mercury and Venus conjunct Pluto in Scorpio in house 1 ✨?✨

    …and conjunct my Ascendent

    …and my Venus is retrograde!

    I’m constantly having to monitor my interactions and often have to “reel it in” for the sake of not being too intense/bold/etc.

    Of course, some people love that Scorpio energy and want more of it from me. I try to use common sense and social “wisdom” to guide me in how exactly it is appropriate to present myself in each given situation. It’s definitely not a free-spirited energy!

    My Taurus moon keeps me grounded. ?

    1. Also, should mention to those with similar chart energy that I have absolutely found my calling working in healthcare, particularly ER and more recently, ICU. The more intense, the better!

  4. I have Venus conjunct Pluto in Libra in the 4th. I’ve had some intense, passionate affairs. I value discretion in a lover. I like things to be just between the two of us, away from prying eyes. When I am attracted to someone there is nothing light about it. As much as I enjoy the intensity of our worlds colliding, I don’t want to be around the other person all the time, I don’t like any kind of clinginess, I want to obsess over you and pine and burn for you until I see you again and devour all there is and then get as far away from you as possible…until the next time. I’m comfortable in the shadow.

  5. My late husband and I had a Venus conjunct Pluto double whammy (1.5° and 3° orbs respectively). I’m not sure how Venus conjunct Pluto is supposed to play out in synastry, but I can say that we were totally devoted to each other, in a way that I’ve not seen in other relationships. Perhaps this is like the “powerful attraction” that you mention for natal aspects?

  6. My favorite topic! The Dark Side! I have Venus – Conjunct – Pluto in Virgo in the 12th House!! Mars is also conjunct with these two in the 12th, but Mars is in Leo!!!
    Please don’t tell me about the dark side!! Fascinated with dictators etc., etc., maybe we are seeing one evolve right now even as we “boast” about our democratic values and exercise our franchise.
    For me it is all about fascination with the dark side – and also the mysterious like the Occult. I am too refined to be be part of the list you gave above – but I am sometimes consumed with boiling rage – internally. Yes, I do suffer from hypertension!!

  7. My BF has Venus retrograde in the 6th house trine Pluto in the 9th.

    He has been obsessed with airplanes and travel by airplanes. Now, with COVID19 he has been… Disappointed, to say the least.

    He is also dedicated as F… to his work place. He has been in the same work place for 15 years. That’s commitment right there!

    When it comes to love, I think there is finally a man whom I can rely on for good. He has been with me through the good and the bad. H
    Our relationship is curiously geared towards healing (6th house) and learning about my condition (9th house) and he is nothing if not committed. The only thing I wish he would be is more geared towards his OWN healing… But that’s the Virgo vibe I guess. They always care about the other first before thinking of themselves.
    He has been a key person in breaking through my life long predicament and gotten me into psychiatry to find the root cause of my affliction though (that must be the Pluto part). I owe him all my thanks here also.

    On the past he has been obsessed with unavailable lovers. And then came me, and I am available and he doesn’t know how to handle it… Gets all worked up in a knot.

  8. Death do us part…interesting. So Elsa, do you think that means the same thing if you see it in a synastry comparison chart?

  9. Hello! I know this is a little bit of an older post…. but I have the Venus-Pluto conjunction in the 5th house. And I can definitely say that I feel it intensely. I think because I also have Neptune in the 7th house and it being the only planet there …I tend to have a problem with relationships and reality. Just wondering what your thoughts a Venus pluto conjunction (0 orb) in the 5th house are?

  10. I have Venus and Pluto in close conjunction 0.26 deg in Scorpio in the 4th house. This is the closest aspect in my chart and both planets square my Mars in Leo by 2 degrees. Venus and Pluto also conjuct Jupiter by 5 deg in the 4th house also. My moon is in Pisces in 8th house trines Venus and Pluto by 5 deg also.
    I also have Uranus conjuct Neptune and Sun in Capricorn in the 5th house. My mercury is in Capricorn also in the 6th house and sextile to Pluto and Venus. Saturn in Pisces only makes minor aspects to two planets in my chart (square Jupiter and oppose Mars). Saturn is the only in 7th house…should I worry about all this?

    I have Venus conjuct Pluto in Scorpio 0.26 degs in the 4th house. This is the strongest aspect in my natal chart. Both of these planets conjuct Jupiter in minor aspect of 5 degs in the 4th house as well. I don’t have any planet in cancer, but I do have Sun, Mercury, Uranus, Neptune in Capricorn and all in the 5th house (except for Mercury in 6th). My stellium in Capricorn sextiles my stellium in Scorpio. The Scorpio stellium is squared by my Mars and ASC both in Leo (my Mars is in the 1st house). Saturn is in Pisces as well as my moon. They are only conjuct in signs and far apart in degrees. My Pisces moon is in the 8th house of Scorpio and trines my Stellium in Scorpio by 5deg which adds more emotional power to this stellium already. Saturn is the only planet in 7th house and doesn’t make any significant aspect to other planets except opposing my Mars and Squaring my Jupiter in weak degrees aspect. Should I worry about all of this?

  12. I have venus conjunction pluto on 1st house, my sun sign is virgo, rising libra, moon aries and my venus im scorpio. Only knowledge in astrology helped me to understand this my complex personality. I had to go toxic marriage and terrible relationships to found out myself and now when I am 35 y finally I found out that and understand that I am lucky to have this conjunction.

  13. I have Venus in the 1st house conjunct Pluto in the 12th house straddling my Ascendant in Libra by 2 degrees on each side making it a triple conjunction. My relationships are either super intense or mutual friends with benefits. However, since I started a decades-long series of Pluto transits in Capricorn, transiting my natal 12th house in Libra, where I have a Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto stellium. Well ever since this transit began my relationships have been intense, and dramatic, and sex always leads to my partners crying. Or I attract partners that subconsciously play out their deepest traumas through sex. Which I am not cool with, so needless to say, sex has been very depressing for a while now. The Last seven sexual partners I’ve had started crying, or even began remembering and literally talking about their trauma during sex. Oh, I also only attract women with past trauma.

    Other than that, I’ve always had a powerful obsession with overcoming my childhood trauma and learning everything I could about trauma, which turned into a desire to understand molestation because my ex-GF father molested her, and I just couldn’t let it go how he could do that. So I needed to understand the psychology of pedophilia.

    Lately, I have been learning about the motivations of Pedophiles to understand why they’re innately sexually attracted to children, it became sad and fascinating once I discovered it’s a brain defect that got the attraction impulse crossed with a natural response to comforting small children and animals. So because those wires are crossed their adult sexual drives are triggered by children. This is like being cursed, which is why many of them try to go without and devote their lives to God and inevitably molest children in the church. What makes this the most interesting is, that now there is a science to explain the mental malfunction, it can be classified as a mental health issue, and treatments can start being developed to help people heal, rather than making them outcasts of society, that leave them no choice but suicide, or becoming even worse deviants.

    Lastly, I’m African American and I am also into the motivations of the KKK, and bigotry. Not from a social justice perspective, but from a psychological perspective. I love getting to the bottom of things that don’t make logical sense like hate, and deeply unsettling prejudice. I have an intuitive instinct that it is not a matter of choice, but more a matter of deep mental and emotional fear & insecurity, and sadly growing up a product of their environment.  

    I’m also a Virgo Sun, Libra Asc, and Capricorn moon. So I’m all about understanding both sides of every historical narrative from a neutral point of view, to really get to the bottom of the human condition. This placement really does get us interested in the depths of life, ever since I was a kid a had a weird fascination with poop too, just wondering what it was, but come to find out it is an important essential aspect of healthy fertilizer to grow our food in, that is hilarious to me, considering how ashamed we are of our own pooh.
