The Sun is the Divine Child. Pluto is Lord of the Underworld. When these two get together in the same place in the zodiac, what do you think might happen?
Here's some ideas: Perhaps the Golden Child shines light into the dark. Solar consciousness can illuminate the the Shadows, and that which seems to be demonic can be revealed to be angelic. Our biggest fears could be outed as silly boogie-men during the day!
Sometimes, though, the Divine Child can be a sheltered brat. S/he can be willfully naive, and like Persephone, might need to pull that flower Narcissus out of the ground, like a string attached to a bell calling the black horses of the Underworld to emerge. Sometimes we need to go down into our depths to become fully aware of our power. We need an initiation into darker (more interesting) places to become more aware of our wholeness, our Night and Day sides. To turn the Divine Child into the Sovereign.
The astrological map is intense, that is for certain. Venus also gets closer to Saturn (ruler of Capricorn, where the Sun happens to be) challenging us on self-worth. "Are there any holes in your self-regard?", Saturn may ask. "Who's job are you making it to make you feel good---yours or someone else's?" Saturn can seem a little tough, and its easy to see him as a victimizing energy. But that's only if you're adverse to being responsible for yourself (responsible for yourself= being able to respond to yourself in your own best interest).
Be creative whenever you can this week. Venus makes a square to Neptune, which is wonderful for the poetic imagination. Venus making contact with both planets is highlighting the ways in which imagination can help us manifest what we value. And we may periodically we need to redefine what that is! (Psst...tune into your Heart for answers).
