On 6 September Venus trines Jupiter bringing generosity of spirit, openness and benevolence into our relationships. However on the same day, Venus also squares Pluto, a transit that typically creates obsessive, manipulative and unhealthy power dynamics in relationships. Under this transit resentments that have been bubbling under the surface may emerge in rather unpleasant and often passive aggressive ways.
Also on the same day Mars trines Pluto – great for make up sex! Mars trine Pluto is also an energetic and focused energy so any heavy and physical tasks that need to be done can be absolutely smashed out under the influence of this transit and could be a good way to channel frustration or anger brought up by the square between Venus and Pluto.
This is a complex aspect dynamic and you will experience it differently depending on how your natal chart is triggered. Those with natal planets or points between 21 and 27 degrees of the Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra and Cap) will feel the tense energy of the square, while those with planets or points between 21 and 27 degrees of the Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn) will feel the flowing, harmonious vibe of the trine more strongly.
Those who’s charts are triggered by both dynamics may find this a time of inner shifts and turmoil in the relationship department.
Why Venus trine Jupiter is important in this dynamic…
What makes Venus trine Jupiter significant is that it offsets and supports the tension of the square, allowing outlet and expression to this turbulent energy between Venus and Pluto. Venus is in Libra, the sign of its rulership, and with expansive Jupiter as her ally this bodes well for relationships as we will be more diplomatic and ready to find a compromise with the other person.
To make the most of this energy we need to put our faith in the universal support of the creative process, whereby our positive thinking manifests positive outcomes. It’s a process that’s intrinsic to how we interact with the world: as creative, magical beings how we think, speak and act influences our reality. The realisation of this truth allows us to release old unecesssary baggage and step courageously into powerful self-expression.
