Venus/Pluto draws together the beauty, love, art and pleasure of Venus with the depths, instinctual power, obsessive drive, and hidden mystery of Pluto:


The combining of Venusian themes of love and money with Plutonic themes of taboos, drama, and transformation is witnessed in the chart and career of actress Julia Roberts, whose movies include titles such as Sleeping With the Enemy, I Love Trouble, Runaway Bride, and Money Monster. In the film Pretty Woman Roberts portrays a prostitute (Pluto) who falls in love (Venus). Perhaps the most salient example lies in the movie Eat, Pray, Love in which Roberts plays an author who finds personal transformation (Pluto) through a path of pleasure and love (Venus).


The Venus/Pluto combination in the chart of Antonio Banderas shows up as the actor’s tendency to play characters that represent the “tall, dark and handsome” forbidden (Pluto) love (Venus):

The Venus/Pluto combination can create a great creative power (Pluto) in artists (Venus) in a way that bears a unique Venus/Pluto stamp. Frank Frazetta portrayed this in his paintings of beautiful woman posing beside deadly beasts. Author George R.R. Martin demonstrates his Venus/Pluto combination in the many graphic sex scenes in his Game of Thrones series that involve intrigue, drama, and the taboo, such as incest and homosexuality. Selena Gomez demonstrates this combination as powerfully obsessive (Pluto) love (Venus) in her video “Can’t Keep My Hands to Myself”: Joe Rogan demonstrates this combination in his birth chart in this stand up comedy that involves mixing sex with bestial imagery involving wolves: (be warned: explicit content).

“Hey, little girl, is your daddy home?
Did he go and leave you all alone?
I got a bad desire
Oh-oh-oh, I'm on fire

Tell me now, baby, is he good to you?
And can he do to you the things that I do? Oh, no
I can take you higher
Oh-oh-oh, I'm on fire

Sometimes it's like someone took a knife, baby, edgy and dull
And cut a six-inch valley through the middle of my skull
At night I wake up with the sheets soaking wet
And a freight train running through the middle of my head
Only you can cool my desire
Oh-oh-oh, I'm on fire
Oh-oh-oh, I'm on fire
Oh-oh-oh, I'm on fire”


-Bruce Springsteen (born with Venus/Pluto), “I’m On Fire”
