Venus will conjunct Pluto and this transit is exact February 22. We will feel the energy a day or two before and after.
We will be digging deeply into our relationships with an intent of trying to understand where we stand and how we really feel.
Pluto is compulsive in nature and some will feel obsessed with certain thoughts about their relationships that will be hard to let go of. Pluto rules sex, control and those who force their will on others.
If you dig too deeply its possible you could bring to the surface things that are better left alone or unsaid, as the ramifications can be long lasting. As Mercury also squares Jupiter things could easily get blown out of proportion and some relationships will end.
The possibility exists to transform a relationship at this time, but it would be a difficult proposition under this transit.
Worst case scenario a transit like this could relate to blackmail, coercion, or physical violence in the worst case scenario.
Those with planets at 20-22 degrees of a cardinal sign (Aries, Libra, Cancer, Capricorn) will be affected to a greater degree than others.
This transit will play out in the world in terms of news relating to women, scandals, fiduciary issues and most certainly abuse of power.
