Diving deeply into values is called for today. Superior insight about the true nature of love is available to you when you move beyond appearances and discover what is most heartfelt in relationship. With Venus ruling values, and Pluto ruling the will-power, this alignment is all about love and control.
When you value yourself, when you truly love yourself, then and only then do you have the capacity for self-control. And it is that centering of will that makes it possible for you to give yourself willingly to another. You can take that step into the space of vulnerability, the space that is the meeting ground of two hearts, because you have found the love within and the will to make a choice.
But the greater mystery here is that is only through relationship, only when you come together with another, can you penetrate beyond the illusionary self and discover your truer self. Because in order to come together, when we meet one another in that crucible that is relationship, we each must sacrifice and surrender the lesser values between us. We affirm to one another what we truly share; we re-discover and strengthen our greater values which form the true song and substance of our love.
The mystery of Venus and Pluto is that by joining with another more deeply, you end up coming closer to your own true self. You surrender your lesser self so that you may meet your higher self, who is revealed to you by the smile in your lover's eyes.
So, today, go deep and give yourself to love and find yourself and your love in one another.
