The Venus person embodies the qualities of grace, charm and beauty which activates very powerful and intense emotions from the Plutonian individual. Pluto’s intensity is often attractive to Venus, and creates a powerful sexual chemistry between the couple, even with the difficult aspects. With all Pluto contacts in synastry, there will always be a struggle for dominance and control. Pluto destroys whatever challenges its survival. Yet, Pluto can also make Venus feel loved and valued, but can also be too intrusive, and their intensity can be rather disturbing.The Pluto person often makes the Venus person much more aware of their inner values and feelings of self-worth. When Venus and Pluto form a harmonious connection in the synastry chart, it often signifies ease in opening up psychologically to the partner and a deepening of values in the union.
When someone’s Pluto forms a connection to our Venus, love is intensified and potent. Venus may even enjoy the exclusive attention of Pluto. The bond has a feeling of being destined, but if the Venus person doesn’t reciprocate the same feelings towards their partner, the Pluto individual tends to take their feelings of intensity up a notch until they receive the desired response. Venus conjunct, opposite or square Pluto may create greater insecurity in the way these two people interact. Let’s face it, Pluto doesn’t take rejection lightly and refusing his or her advances only creates further resentment; feelings of jealousy and possessiveness can surface in the relationship and take over.
Taking the Relationship to Another Level
Pluto can have a compulsive attraction to Venus, but sometimes this is a repressive influence and one partner may feel coerced and intimidated into being loving and affectionate. It may result in increased levels of threats and greater emotional dominance. Pluto is all about psychological truth and will keep digging and digging until he/she receives the depth of affection required from Venus. This level of intensity can be exhausting for both partners. Pluto has the ability to penetrate and degrade the love nature of Venus, and infidelities will not likely be tolerated. Still, Pluto can regenerate and transform the partner, creating an enduring bond, and in general, Venus-Pluto contacts between a couple brings about change and growth in both partners. Still, this contact may encourage mutual debt, addictions, and compulsions in a relationship and compromise are often difficult, and this could easily turn into a love-hate kind of union.
Uneasy Love Obsession
The unconscious manipulative manner of the Pluto person often destroys Venus’ affections. Equally Venus’ over-superficial attitude to the relationship builds up resentment in the Pluto person. Pluto interactions can ignite a striking fascination or uneasy love obsession. The Pluto individual is not easily satisfied and it’s all or nothing and so breaking the bond is never easy, and extremes of emotion will surface. It’s unlikely these two can ever remain “just friends” as the relationship is hard to forget. The relationship often begins out very charming, sweet and passionate, but there is always a simmering heat underneath this interaction, and it may turn smothering, manipulative and violent.
In fact, the Venus person may believe they are all sweetness and light in this interaction, but he or she also has to look at how they respond and whether or not they seduce the Pluto individual into a jealous rage on purpose. Venus loves some of the intensity; especially if it makes her feel more beautiful, valued and loved. For some, it makes the relationship more exciting, desirable and sexually driven. However, Pluto’s reactions often just scare Venus, and Pluto has a tendency to dredge up everything. The contact is sometimes found in a relationship of unrequited love, and one that it is very much one sided. The Pluto person doesn’t want to share Venus, so there is a level of pleasure and pain here. There is also a lot of healing and transformation that can occur if the bond is allowed to reach a deep enough level.
