Every Rose Has Its Thorn

Learn more about Venus conjunct Pluto at Love gets crazy sometimes, and we don’t always understand why. But not this time! If it happens to you this evening, the reason is very clear: Venus is conjunct Pluto on January 16.

A couple of things could happen with this aspect. Namely, you’ll either have an intense romantic experience, or you’ll drive away the object of your affection by coming off as an obsessive freak. OK, I’m sure those aren’t the only two scenarios that could happen, but suffice it to say this aspect is all about pushing love to its limits.


See, when Venus, planet of love, is conjunct Pluto, the planet of sex, death and transformation, it puts you in an all-or-nothing frame of mind about romance.

You’ll want to grab on to the object of your affection’s face by both ears and stare into their eyes with daggers of love that pierce their soul. And if you don’t get back the same exact level of intense passion that you’re offering up, well, you could on the way to Singlesville via Crazytown.

Even normal, happy relationships might not feel like they’re enough for you at this time, so you’ll push for more. This is when your partner might say “I love you!” and you’ll say “I know, but HOW MUCH????” And if you don’t get the answer you want, you may behave insecure, jealous and possessive. That is super attractive, right?


I’m sure we’ve all acted this way at times. It’s really just about loving someone so intensely that you get scared they might not feel the same way about you. But if they do, this transit can be as lovely as a rose. If they don’t, you’ll feel the thorn.

All I can say is that I’m sure glad this aspect is happening mid-week and not on a hot date night. Venus transits pass quickly, so this energy should dissipate before I have the opportunity to let it make me act all crazy.

Yeah, wish me luck with that.
