Venus Square Pluto: March 31, 2013 – Old Lovers Climb From Their Graves, Come Back To Haunt

Venus in Aries is squaring Pluto now. Regulars here know this means, “Corpse Alert”!

Corpses are what I call old lovers who come back from the dead and haunt you on facebook or in your dreams, or however else they can manage. I’m talking about people you stuffed in a trash can, months or years ago, or people who dumped your happy ass when it might not have been that happy.

You can check this post: Here Come The Corpses for more info.

Also, watch the video below for insight. It is old, but more relevant than ever in that I am talking about Saturn Pluto, which is what?  Saturn in Scorpio and Pluto in Capricorn!  It’s relevant all right.

As for how to handle this, my general feeling is if you have to dump someone from your life one time, if you let them back in, you’ll have to dump them again.

However, true love can lie dormant for a long time, and it can resurrected when the time is right. My husband and I are an example of that. We were apart for nearly 25 years.

Keep in mind, Venus is in Aries, Pluto in Capricorn. That makes this a Mars, Pluto, Saturn exchange. This combo can be quite cruel, but it can also be transforming.

I would not be afraid of this, but I would be alert.

  1. I love this: “my general feeling is if you have to dump someone from your life one time, if you let them back in, you’ll have to dump them again.”

    In one article you write that you can also be a corpse yourself. This is really interesting! Would venus square pluto in your natal chart make you more prone to becoming a corpse yourself in your opinion?

  2. Thanks for your comment. I have pluto square venus in my natal chart – and I just noticed some corpses hanging around here, and then realized that it might be because they feel at home.

  3. Interestingly, when Mercury went direct, news came through from my parents of their Sheriff’s Sale date. The house (like a corpse itself to me) will go, and yes, although cruel, I think and hope it will be transformative. My family and I can all finally move on. But first, we all have to deal with the Ghost of Christmas Past. Personally, I have a few remaining photos and memorabilia left behind to sort through. Sounds like it’s time for a proper burial.

  4. I can vouch for the double dump. Worth dumping once, often worth dumping twice.

    In my case, it was a triple dump over a span of 12 years. I am a slow learner.

  5. Ran into the pisces friend that I made when we first got here. She dumped me (actually, from day one she said she never had time to be friends, but we always hung out after school, etc for the kids to play as both sets of our little ones were bff’s). We’ve lived here for 5yrs and I’ve never run into her at the store, but today I did. I didn’t feel a need to notice her as she pulled her usual ‘sneaky-ness’ and was hiding behind/in an aisle so I wouldn’t see her. It was no skin off my back to move along without’seeing’ her.

    Whatever 🙂 I was happy to converse with the gal checking my groceries and leave the store without so much as a ‘hi’ or wave. I’m free to move on to someone who’s worth my time 😉

  6. Wow! This is the second time I’ve heard this *warning* in the past couple of days. The other came from a tarot reader.

    This usually happens to me during Mercury retrograde periods. Except with this past retrograde. I think my corpses are staying in the ground now. But I’ll let you know if anything surfaces.

  7. Yeah, eris. That too.
    I just think if the thing is dead and rotted, let go.
    If you can still get and give energy, then you have something viable.

  8. There’s one person I’m thinking about right now in regards to this blog entry, and I surely hope he’s NOT going to be one of the corpses! As much as I Loved him and probably always will in some way, he just brings drama and trouble in my Life. March 31 will mark one year since I got out of his life and I hope he’s not up to something… You and your husband’s story is amazing though, Elsa.

  9. I’m about to make myself someone’s “corpse”, though not as an ex but a “love lying dormant” situation. I’m terrified.

  10. I have such nice exes and they’ve stayed very close friends that I love hearing from them and I’m close to their wives, etc. Guess I’m lucky as relationships can be troublesome but not all exes are terrible, my exes have been lucky and really there for me as friends, the ones who have gone the long distance and not the fairweather type.

  11. @ Caribou02–Do it!! Give yourself the best pat on the back from me….love is not always constant on the surface but the depths can bring the best unity in all time. Good stuff!!

  12. ‘People Who are Dead But Don’t Know It – What a Bother’ – lmao, P!
    Seriously, maybe I’m the corpse and it’s time for a cremation: after all, doesn’t the Phoenix (Scorpio) rise from the ashes?
    Thanks for this – it’s great to get some laughs from such a dark (Pluto) subject!

  13. Just checking in to say thank you for the heads up! I definitely had a visit from a few corpses in a dream last night. Kind of bittersweet.

  14. Thanks Elsa. Now I understand – my corpse is being played out by a member leaving her relationship. Really eerie and dark. Meanwhile there is a good corpse. Wanting to hang out with a good man.

  15. Hm, I’m curious to see how this plays out for me, that is, if it hasn’t in some way already…
    Transiting venus in Aries falls in my 9th house and transiting Pluto in Cap falls in my 6th house….

  16. Well I no longer feel the need to check into a Sanitorium. Thank you. You would think with Venus Square Pluto natally, I would be used to this energy… but No ! I am also approaching my 2nd Saturn Return. Lot’s of Scorpio in my chart, but I am a Libran.

    Earlier this year I became a little obsessed with locating an ex-lover from 40; yes 40 years. I wasn’t sure why, but I did have some questions I hoped he could answer. I was at one point an investigative journalist, before a life altering illness took me out of the work world. So I dug, and I dug, and Voila.. I found a location and a phone number. I called it. Feeling all bold with these Aries planets. I left a message.

    Tuesday, this man’s Widow called me… we had a brief, but enlightening conversation. He led a fulfilling life, helping people, but died in 2001. I have the Gotye song “Somebody That I Used to Know” running through my head, and playing on Youtube… why was I so unimportant that Nobody we knew in common thought to ever tell me ?

    It all makes so much more sense now after reading this. Yes, I have the energy within. (This is not the first time a lover has died, in fact my 1st boyfriend did when I was 14..) and the adage “be careful what you wish for” comes to mind.

    I have had little time for grieving this though. My husband of 32 years lost 2 people from his job this week, and 1 son (a Libran also) has been ill.. knowing the Why helps though, and for that I thank you. I just wish the damned corpses were metaphors !

  17. huh, this is so true, i’m selling my apartment these days. been living in it for 7 years, it’s a requiem for a period of life, a beautiful one, but now Saturn (grown up reality) is knocking. and will be potentialy shocking, maybe harsh, maybe just transforming. my apartment is a beautiful corpse of many things. i look forward to leaving, and i know it will be weird. even for the ones that are happy to go, parting is such sweet sorrow 🙂

  18. This is classic Elsa! Had a friend mention in email today that she connected with an ex and feels bad about it and now needs to find a way to block him in email. I just laughed and sent her the link to this post.

  19. Omg!!! Yesterday I ran into a corpse I kicked to the curb
    March 10th (Mercury Retrograde). He purposefully paraded in front if me so I could see him. And when I didn’t acknowledge him… he reappeared when some dreadful looking girl to get a rise out if me. That wasn’t enough…. no! He had to text me to say he knows my feelings were hurt. And that he hasn’t contacted me because he obviously moved on. LOL!

    Well I had to remind his happy ass that I kicked him to the curb because he is angry and argumentative. And I told his raggedy behind that no one with dignity would ever contact a person that told them they dont even want to be friends. So of course he hasn’t contacted me… what other choice does he have? He went ballistic. LOL. But he asked for it. Everyone that knows me knows I go to Panera almost everyday near my job. My job is an hour commutefrom my home. He doesn’t know the area so why was he there? I’ll tell you why… because yesterday his Venus was opposing Pluto. He was cruising for a bruising and he got what he asked for!

  20. no corpse visits for me yesterday. which, i have to admit, i was kind of disappointed about.

    what about everyone else? any old boyfriends/girlfriends make a reappearance?

  21. i’m still waiting to see, lots-o-libra! i have a feeling it is still coming, sometime soon. i have not felt the affects of the full moon, yet, and im a cancer sun, libra moon, sag rising.

  22. Ran into the stripper ex sunday at the coffee shop. Haven’t seen him in a decade (since i found out he was a peeler and had a number of other partners on the side, yes it is possible to date someone and not know that!) he was all “look at me! Look at me!” (as usual) and i just walked straight past him to my seat with friends and cracked a joke i had heard recently and didn’t even glance at him as he walked by to exit with some new, young little miss by his side. Good luck to her.
