The dance that the celestial lovers create in the sky mirrors our relationship patterns. This interplay also reflects their roles as key archetypes of feminine and masculine energy.

The fact that Venus and Mars are on opposite sides of the Earth in the solar system mirrors their astrological rulership as opposing signs of the zodiac. They are also opposing forces in physics in their association as metals copper and iron. In every aspect of their relationship they work in unison, always as a pair of opposites.

The seasons shift once again with 12 hours of daylight hours and 12 of darkness everywhere on planet Earth. The sign of Libra symbolises this balancing act.
Libra’s ruling planet is of course Venus, and she is now located in Virgo, closing in on Mars. The celestial lovers will reunite two weeks after this Equinox for the first time in almost two years.

Lord of the Underworld, Pluto is the repository of the secrets of life and death. The Underworld is a dark place; the fount of human depravity; cruelty, torture, murder, greed, evil and violence. Its power is intense and relentless.
The planet named for this dark entity travels the zodiac in a slow elliptical orbit of 248 years, spending anywhere from 13 to 30 years in each sign of the zodiac. On 26 January 2008 Pluto leaves Sagittarius and crosses a pivotal threshold moving into Capricorn. This is an epic time that portents dramatic upheaval.
