Something about being on top of the world…


There’s this line in Imagine Dragon’s On Top of the World that I’ve been singing all day:

“Been waiting on this for a while now

Paying my dues to the dirt

I’ve been waiting to smile, ay

Been holding it in for a while, ay

Take you with me if I can

Been dreaming of this since a child

I’m on top of the world.”

Today I pre-recorded what will be a regular stint on a new lifestyle radio show. I can’t tell you much more than that…yet…but, this song is exactly how I feel- as if things are coming together. Sure, there’s still a way to go, but little victories like this are enough to push the doubts away- at least for now.

That’s why this song, to me, today, is the Venus-Pluto conjunction.

Sure Venus-Pluto is also about intensity in relationships. But then, if you have Venus in Scorpio or Venus aspecting Pluto natally, you will know all about this. I’ve written about this before, so won’t go there again.

And, with this conjunction happening in Capricorn, reality and honesty is very necessary to effect lasting change in relationships. Playing it by the rules and within approved structures, so to speak. To take it one step further, you could use this conjunction in your business relationships to fuel power and ambition…just a thought.

Don’t just look at your own chart here. Think about that of those you are in relationships with.

A Venus/Pluto contact can happen through synastry. It can occur if you are involved with someone who has a Venus/Pluto signature.

There may be someone who you allow to control you, or manipulate you or possess you. If you look at the charts of these people, it’s likely that you will find a Scorpio or Venus/Pluto aspect there…or even an 8th house contact by synastry

There may be someone in your life who forces you to see something about yourself that you wanted to keep hidden. There may be someone in your life that transforms you, brings you to life. There could be someone who helps you destroy something that is no longer good for you. There could be someone who, through relationship, changes you, provides opportunities to achieve the things you always dreamed of.

Which brings to mind another song that’s been on my head all day- Love Supreme, by Robbie Williams.

The technical details: Venus/Pluto conjunction is exact tomorrow morning (Sydney time), but the influence will continue to be felt through the weekend. If you have planets or chart points (look mainly at the personal planets ie Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Ascendant, Midheaven) at or around 9 degrees Capricorn, Aries, Libra, Cancer you will feel this intensity. Planets at 9 degrees Pisces, Scorpio, Taurus, Virgo will also be influenced.

If you are a Venus/Pluto type natally, this universal aspect is likely to feed into your own story- just as it has done for me today…
