Venus conjunct Pluto

You always want to be careful about who you allow into your social orbit when Venus conjoins Pluto. Pluto often signals domineering personalities who seem self-effacing at first but grow more controlling over time. You also want to beware attractions that involve higher-ups and superiors. That recognition you receive from them may have little to do with job performance and more to do with something else. However Venus/Pluto conjunctions aren’t all bad. They’re famous for intense and transformative relationships. Just remember that nothing will be easy with this planetary combination, but the bond that emerges from the crucible will be unbreakable. Signs most affected: Taurus, Libra, Scorpio, and Aquarius
