Let me say in advance that there’s lots more complexity to the relationships of people with Venus-Pluto aspects or Venus in Scorpio than just their sexuality—so much more, in fact, that I dedicated a whole chapter to them in my ebook, Outer Planet Aspects to Venus and Mars. For instance, there’s their unparalleled capacity as healers to transform people with the power of their love. But it’s the weekend, folks, and we’ve covered a lot of serious—even rather somber—territory on this blog in the last few days, so today we’re gonna play.
Earlier we looked at a gallery of photos of celebrities with Venus-Uranus aspects, (Venus-Uranus Aspects among the Glitterati ) and today we’ll see a collection of pictures that demonstrate that certain something that Venus-Pluto people share. But first, here are some of the tendencies they bring to their relationships.
“SMOKIN’!!” Just as you’d imagine, a great deal of passion can be generated by combining Venus with Pluto. (They don’t form aspects so much as cohabit!) Among those with the conjunction, for instance, are Hollywood sex symbols like Antonio Banderas, Sean Penn, and Raquel Welch.
Where the combination is strong, the urge to merge with another through sexuality can become compulsive, even to the point of addiction. For others, physical conquest or seduction is more about power over the other person.
“IT’S NOBODY’S BUSINESS IF I DO.” These highly private folks consider it nobody else’s business. In fact, secrecy enhances the passion. Sexual intrigue, such as infidelity or the office affair, exerts a lure, the payoff being getting away with it or getting even with someone. They tend to feel more shame than remorse when the “dirty secret” leaks out.
“THE WORLD REVOLVES AROUND SEX AND MONEY.” We had an old reprobate of a professor at college who adored saying that to shock us. He probably had a Venus-Pluto aspect, not to mention a fairly good grip on politics.
Political savvy, combined with personal charm, give these folks the capacity to hobnob with the movers and shakers. In lists of people with such aspects, you find many who married well in order to do some dynasty building. In researching the charts of the wives of presidents and politicians, I was fascinated to see how many of them had Venus in combination with Pluto—so many that I dubbed it the First Lady Aspect. Those who have it include Pat Nixon and Betty Ford with the trine and Eleanor Roosevelt, Hillary Clinton, and Maria Shriver—first lady of California—with the square.
