And just the day prior on Feb. 16, 2024 at 7:52pm PST, Mercury squares Uranus exact, pointing to revealing and potentially contentious conversations that set the scenes for the Pluto-Venus conjunction.


Wherever Pluto-Venus hits on our charts, we can expect endings/transformations/beginnings in the corresponding arena.


Below are short descriptions of where the conjunction might affect you. Please check the following signs:

ASCENDANT SIGN: for where life circumstances may arise for you to transform. Also check the ascendant sign before yours. i.e. If you are Capricorn ascendant, also check Sagittarius. If you are Pisces ascendant, also check Aquarius, etc. SUN SIGN: for what you consciously would like to transform

MOON SIGN: for what you may be karmically lead/compelled to transform either you are consciously aware of it or not (not mentioned in video, but important)


For Capricorn Ascendant or Sun:

The Pluto-Venus conjunction happens in your 1st house, transforming your self-awareness and identity. The Uranus-Jupiter conjunction will happen in your 4th house, so you will be welcoming a new understanding/expansion of family and personal safety, or even expect a house move. An example that is practical and mundane would be shedding the bachelorhood-identity to start a family. So death and transformation of the personal to get ready for expanding the family and/or the emotional safety that comes from tribal bonds.


for Sagittarius Ascendant or Sun:

The Pluto-Venus conjunction happens in your 2nd house, transforming your personal values and priorities. This can be the rags-to-riches jackpot combination, or in the reverse. The Uranus-Jupiter conjunction will happen in your 5th house, so bringing children into the picture or allowing revolutionary breakthrough in your creative self-expression and pursuits. And shifts in your resources would set you up for that.


For Scorpio Ascendant or Sun:

The Pluto-Venus conjunction happens in your 3rd house, transforming your relationship to your siblings, peers, and how you communicate in general. The Uranus-Jupiter conjunction will happen in your 6th house, so revolutionizing your daily work routine, workflow, and to a certain degree, health and wellness routines. In other words, your friendships and communication style shift so that you can get ready for new routines that align with your work and lifestyle.


For Libra Ascendant or Sun:

The Pluto-Venus conjunction happens in your 4th house, transforming your relationship with your family and potentially your place of residence. The Uranus-Jupiter conjunction will happen in your 7th house, so revolutionizing your partnership for a brand new outlook. In other words, shifts in family dynamic or place or residence to get ready for a new and expanded frontier in your partnership. Venus is the ruler of your sign, so this is a potentially rejuvenating shift for you.


For Virgo Ascendant or Sun:

The Pluto-Venus conjunction happens in your 5th house, transforming your relationship with your children or romantic and/or creative sensibilities. The Uranus-Jupiter conjunction will happen in the 8th house, so revolutionizing your capacity for intimacy and depth. This could literally mean meeting (or breaking up with) someone romantically to get ready for breakthroughs in your capacity for intimacy, or being able to go deeper within your creative expressions to heal your inner psyche or inner-child.


For Leo ascendant or Sun:

The Pluto-Venus conjunction happens in your 6th house, transforming your relationship with your workplace colleagues. The Uranus-Jupiter conjunction will happen in the 9th house, so revolutionizing your professional knowledge and know-how and your marketing outreach. This means going through shifts in the workplace routines so that you can rise up in your professional reputation and get ready to receive a wider audience and influence.


For Cancer Ascendant or Sun:

The Pluto-Venus conjunction happens in your 7th house, transforming your relationship with your partner(s). The Uranus-Jupiter conjunction will happen in the 10th house, so revolutionizing your social reputation and public role. This points to deep shifts in your partnership so that you can step into greater roles professionally and gain a higher reputation in the world.


For Gemini Ascendant or Sun:

The Pluto-Venus conjunction happens in your 8th house, transforming your joint finances and/or your inner-psyche. This is a position where you could receive inheritance. The Uranus-Jupiter conjunction will happen in the 11th house, so revolutionizing your connection with your community or extended family. This could mean the literal passing of family that brings about inheritance and a new closeness among the family circle. Or a transformation in the inner-landscape that allows you to create higher long-term goals for yourself.


For Taurus Ascendant or Sun:

The Pluto-Venus conjunction happens in your 9th house, transforming your professional knowledge and inter-disciplinary influence. The Uranus-Jupiter conjunction will happen in the 12th house, so revolutionizing your ability to channel the collective zeitgeist. This is highly visionary: transforming professional alliances to get ready to become the next wave of influencers. The imagery of Oz partnering with an AI whiz to come up with an even more captivating illusion comes to mind. This is world domination.


For Aries Ascendant or Sun:

The Pluto-Venus conjunction happens in your 10th house, transforming your social status and reputation. The Uranus-Jupiter conjunction will happen in the 1st house, revolutionizing your personal identity. The arc here can be transformations in your public reputation and persona, which sets the scene for expansions in personal evolution and mastery. Or it could be shifts in career that pushes you to expand in personal identity.


For Pisces Ascendant or Sun:

The Pluto-Venus conjunction happens in your 11th house, transforming your relationship with your wider community and extended family. The Uranus-Jupiter conjunction will happen in the 2nd house, revolutionizing your personal resource and skillset. This could mean forming deeper bonds with your network circle that gets you ready for an increase in personal finance, or transforming your long-term goals that lead to an expansion of your skillset and electrifying results for your income.


For Aquarius Ascendant or Sun:

The Pluto-Venus conjunction happens in your 12th house, transforming one's spiritual foundations through potentially karmic events. Uranus-Jupiter conjunction will happen in the 3rd house, revolutionizing your communication style and relationship with friends and peers. The storyline here could be that events transpire that transform your spiritual belief and a co-creative partnership with spirit, in a sense. This gets you ready to revolutionize the way you communicate and express your ideas.


We can take a look at Whoopi Goldberg's example (Figure 2) and surmise that as the Pluto-Venus conjunction hits her natal Chiron, karmic wounds can be activated in order to be released. This could be wounds surrounding her sibling and/or colleagues. As the wounds transform and transmute, her relationship with faith and the unseen can also be transformed, and that sets the scene for a new communication approach.

And because 3rd house is also the house of broadcasting and journalism, we might see her going into a new phase of broadcasting that is more co-creative with spirit and that reaches deeper into her soul. My projection is that as opposed to her past communication style, she'll be able to transcend into a new paradigm of communication where she can ground the communication in the practical while touching difficult and controversial subjects. As a result, more people would be more open to hear and resonate with her. And this shift comes from being able to process and transform the karmic wounds so she can reach a new understanding of how to communicate her spirit to the world in a more innovative and effective way. I personally hope she takes this route of conscious integration as opposed to the other extreme, which is leaving the activated conditioning unexamined that leads to forceful communications of reactive sentiments. Though no blame here either way, we've all done it before.


Overall, this energy extends all the way out to the Jupiter-Uranus conjunction on Apr. 20, 2024. Meaning breathe deeply, take it slow, there is time to process the changes that we need to make in order to welcome a new expansion.


Lastly, I have a slightly dystopian editorial of these planetary events if you'd like the entertainment. As Venus continues to transit Pluto in Aquarius until Pluto exits Aquarius in 2044, we'll really be asking ourselves how AI can be integrated into fulfilling our intimacy needs. The age of plugging into virtual reality to see our virtual partners and virtual family is not far off. As our attention span and tolerance for growing pain decreases, our dependence on pain-avoidant distractions increases.


The way to do this right, in my opinion, is to accept and surrender to the Plutonian transformations of any real relationship. We open up to intimacy and vulnerability with real people and we get hurt (people change, and die), we learn to feel and process the hurt, and we evolve through the process, no matter how long and arduous. Not that I would stop Dan Stevens' bionic character in the movie "I'm Your Man" from courting me if that hunk of a machine delivers its relationship promises. But I would project that there is something about the Plutonian evolutionary healing process that brings such depth to our being that can't be second-handed through computer programming. At least that is my personal understanding at the moment. We'll see if that changes in the future, and Data the android (from Star Trek: TNG) becomes sentient. And may it be so (wait wha..!?!@!?#!?$%!?).


Hope this helps. Or at least entertaining. Namaste.
