This is odd topic but with Venus (Love) in Aries (Men) squaring Pluto (death), it seems appropriate to broach it. This is on my mind because I had a client wondering about having a second husband. Shortly after that conversation, a man I know (who is a great husband) told me that he tries to prepare his wife for his passing. He expects to die first and he doesn’t want her to suffer or lose it when/if that happens.

Wednesday Venus quincunxes Pluto exact, so zombie advisories remain in effect. The Moon in Leo conjuncts Venus as well, bringing an emotional emotional focus to the aspect. Old friends or lovers may emerge from the grave to make contact and request fresh brains. People get so worried when I say this sort of thing, but it’s not the zombie apocalypse, just an advisory! It’s like a little yellow sign in the road, “Zombie Crossing”, not crowds of the undead blocking traffic and biting faces.

My eye on the sky.
I don’t usually cover minor, transiting aspects, but this one has my attention. Part of the reason is that it will affect my family. I already see it manifesting, but besides that it’s just deliciously complicated. My natal Mercury and Pluto are also involved so I’m attuned to this, anyway you turn it.
Whenever you combine Venus with Pluto, you can expect old lovers to pop up. I call these people “corpses” (see Step Away From The Corpse) because they are people you’ve amputated in your life, for good or ill; rightly, wrongly, regrettably, or whatever the circumstances might be.

Venus with conjunct Pluto in Capricorn on December 1, 2011. This is one hard core deal. Venus rules love and money. Pluto is concerned with power, the shadow of the collective, sex, exchange of energy, death, the unconscious and all things unfathomable. Capricorn is concerned with status and security, reality, integrity and karma. When you combine these things, you come up with some wicked combinations.
- The casting couch.
- Backroom deals by power brokers.
- A gay politician with a beard (wife).
- A kept woman.
- A deal with the devil.
- A father raping his daughter.
- Kiss of death.
- Till death do us part.
- Vendetta against a lover
- Damaged reputation

“…You don’t want anyone stupid – you’re a Virgo! But to find the right partner, you will have to let go the “little maiden” thing because you are far more complicated. Part of you is voraciously demanding for example, though this is not something you would put in your press kit, lol!
My point here is that by accessing your own intensity, you will increase your ability to attract someone who has what you need where denying same will leave you standing around looking confused…”

Black Moon Lilith, the dark, primal woman, is at 12 Aries opposing Saturn and further complicating the cardinal Grand Cross. With the zombie-inducing component of Venus opposing Pluto we can also add in the possibility of dark women (BML) from the past (Saturn). What a great plot for a horror movie.

My eye on the sky
When Venus aspects Pluto, invariably old lovers surface. I call them corpses (see video Step Away From the Corpse) and on occasion refer to them as people who climb from the trash cans where you dumped them.
You may be the corpse yourself. People love to ping old lovers under the transit for reasons that are often sub or semi-conscious. They say they “just want to apologize” but they really want a lot more than that.
My eye on the sky
There have throngs of people showing up on the boards who have not posted in weeks or months or even years over the last few days and it occurred to me that Venus must be aspecting Pluto. How this escaped me previously, I’ll never know. It’s something I watch but I guess I got distracted with all the Aries and the size of my hair these days, I apologize.
When Venus aspects Pluto, old lovers come back from the dead, or climb from their trash cans as I like to say. I do not mean to apply a negative connotation to the people coming back on the boards as rising from the ashes is another manifestation of this combination that is wholly positive. Aries is involved here and basically people come roaring back to life.

In the comments on my previous post, Venus Aspecting Pluto In Synastry And The Composite, CassandraNoelle asked, “you always hear about the obsessive/possessive traits regarding venus/pluto in synastry, and I guess (although it’s clear that in the harmonious aspects they will clearly be LESS pronounced, than the harder aspects) I was wondering who would feel these so-called negative traits more…venus or pluto?” I am a mud-wrestler of semantics. I think by using more precise language we promote a better understanding of the ideas we wish to illuminate. I think I may be able to answer your question by changing some of the word choices in your question and explaining why I did so.

“Snakes, why did it have to be snakes?”
My Venus quincunxes my man’s Pluto. His Venus quincunxes my Pluto. This is called a “double whammy” in astrology slang, interaspects with the same planets repeated from chart to chart. It’s not exact or within the strict orb (2 to 3 degrees) but the effect is palpable. Because we both have the interaspect in the same signs we also have it in the composite chart which registers midpoints.
