Female Competition: Transiting Pluto Square Venus


red lips pale skinI’m sure that transiting Pluto square my natal Venus in Aries on the 7-8 cusp, at the Aries Point, has something to do with this, but I’m becoming aware of how much unconscious competition I attract, and engage in, from/with other women. I attract competitive women, women want to compete with me, and without fully realizing it, I want to compete with them too.

What I usually do is ignore this energy, and be submissive. I let them ‘win’. I don’t fight or argue, I compromise and/or try to make myself invisible, sometimes for the sake of friendship. Another thing that I do is actively dress-down to minimize jealousy/envy issues. The crazy thing is that lately I find myself getting jealous and envious of just about every woman I see. I can’t deal with my own energy- I have no idea what to do with it. I feel like I need to apologize and say, “I’m sorry for shooting laser beams through your head with my eyes, transiting Pluto is squaring my natal Venus, and suddenly, I think you’re a threat.”

    like you, Aries, Leo moon but with Libra (make nice) rising. also Jupiter and moon conjunct Pluto, 10th Leo. square Venus Taurus 7th house,ruled by Aries on the cusp! so i really bring out the vibes. i went to 14 schools so i learned how to deal with hater girls. i ended up being extremely resilient with much confidence. survival tactics. the bully’s ended up wanting to be my bff. i don’t get jealous of other people. i want to improve, refine, expand myself, but i did it with art, etc. struggled too hard to have jealousy, i was usually just fighting to survive my life. i usually get along quite well with sane other women.aka mutual respect. had 2 women close to me who couldn’t deal, but oh well. it was THEIR astrology making their own jealous nature happen. i have 2 gorgeous, brilliant daughters who challenge me with their feisty high IQ’s and passionate minds, but i instilled in them a sense of reverence for the fact that i loved them above any petty conflicts. had some ambiguous conflicted man/boys who were jealous of my personal power. tried to subdue my brilliance. ha! i dispatched them! now i won’t tolerate any abuse from anyone at my late age. it’s been quite a ride!

    • Thank you for sharing, awake 🙂

      btw, I’m kind of excited for the transiting North Node to move into Leo. I feel like it’s going to boost creativity for me. Have you given that transit any thought?

    Wow Michelle!
    Pluto just passed my Venus
    (9 Aries)
    Not only competition and jealousy
    But a while plethora of emotional stuff
    Maybe I should’ve joined a kickboxing class to get it all out the way Aries likes!

  • with an Aries venus 7/8 cusp you would need that intensity for your warrior/independent/leader assertive feminine!!!………what is the worst thing that could happen if you stepped into authenicity being brought to you personally by the planet of “empowerment/truth”?………this is couragous to post…(go Venus!)

    • what is the worst thing that could happen
      That’s a great question- and I don’t know the answer. I don’t go out of my way to offend or upset people, and I also don’t like making enemies. I think natal Venus in the 7th makes me want to get along with people as much as possible. I can’t stand being around people with whom I feel tension or anger. Maybe the worst thing that can happen is that I have to deal with other people’s anger or dislike of me more often.

      Thank you for reading Candace 😀

  • I don’t know what to say other than look away, distract yourself, take a breath…
    That’s what I usually do, and it usually works. It’s just that lately these feelings are overwhelming.

    What are you jealous of?
    I’m not sure exactly. I can’t put my finger on it. My jealousy is almost irrational right now. I can’t tell if I’m being realistic or not.

    Do you attract competition Natasha? You have Mars in the 7th which makes me think that you attract competitive people too. With Mars in Leo, maybe people who want to outshine you.

    • Natasha

      I do attract it I guess, but never do much about it other than keep my eyes ahead, lol. I’m competitive only because I like to win. If I don’t that’s fine, it’s just that I know I could have. =p

  • Natasha

    Rahh, Michelle you’re brilliant… would that be why you attract competition? =p

    I’m not sure you need to compromise though.

    I don’t know what to say other than look away, distract yourself, take a breath… What are you jealous of?
