Chapter 1: On the Ascendant

Ascendant in Scorpio:

    As a couple, you can either be the devil bringing destruction and ruin, or angels bestowing blessings on your fellow human beings. Those are the only two options here, and there are no in-betweens. You will be extremely courageous, strong willed, sensitive, and emotionally deep inside. The capacity you have to overcome any obstacle or adversity that comes to you is unequaled by any other sign, especially the more time that you spend together.

    Neither of you are easy to understand due to your complex makeup. No one would ever say that you don’t go after what you want, even if what you want is no good for you, that is beside the point. You do so in a quiet an unassuming way and usually get what you want. You live life to the fullest and dislike people who are superficial. Life has a certain passion and intensity that loves a good challenge, fight, or dare to do the unmentionable no matter where it may take you. For you the struggles in life and the pain it brings are normal daily occurrences and you take them in stride.

    Psychic abilities and insights into other peoples motives along with knowledge of  the hidden side of their personality are a natural gift you share together. You are not wishy-washy about people, so when you meet someone you go on first impressions, and how they feel to you. You go through life using an on board radar that defies explanation, as if you could, and that is the way it was meant to be.

    Whether it is a career, love, relationships, decisions, hunches, jealousy or hatred, you do so together with your whole heart. You have a special kinship to the animal world and I would be surprised not to see dogs and cats scattered around the property. You seem to communicate with pets on a much different level then you do with your fellow humans. You are intensely loyal in your relationship and your partner had better understand that before they get involved or they will suffer the wrath of your revenge. Look to the house where Pluto is located to see where you are apt to go through tremendous changes together.

            Ascendant is in Scorpio, Scorpio Decanate

    Ruled by the planet Mars/Pluto, together you are inwardly emotional, shy, modest and secretive and you will either be the devil incarnate or a saint, there can be no in-between. The possibility of going from one extreme to the other in area of your life is a strong possibility. You will be very active and changeable by the moment, and taken negatively, you can take everything way too seriously and may find that you have to learn to lighten up.

Chapter 2: On the Midheaven: How you are seen as a couple

Midheaven in Leo:

    Since this is the most “visible” part of the composite chart, it represents how you are actually seen in the world by others. It represents your more outward or public face and where you are likely to encounter success, and your reputation in the world as a couple. Your mutual goals together, will be courageous, proud and somewhat egotistical. In your career you need a position where all of that Leo energy can shine through. A job in the background would stunt your growth and creativity leaving you bored to death. You are born leaders and because of this you do not take direction or orders from others very well. Careers that allow your creative energy to shine, that bring forth your outstanding and dramatic abilities are what you seek while you are together.

    You are known for your courage and strength of character, and other people recognize it and you draw them to you for their own support and source of inspiration. Yes, you are somewhat self centered and what mark you can make on the world in the name of self expression is your forte. Do the best that you can, and the world can use you as a model for their own gain and inspiration.

    The tenth house is the home of worldly aspirations and attainment. This sector shows how you present yourself to the public, and deeds for which you leave behind as your legacy, or what you will be remembered for. The tenth has domain over the profession, public offices held, and your reputation. The combined energy of Leo here, indicates that the two of you will be very ambitious in your search for the ideal career that will further you both. Executive and leadership qualities are amplified here, as well as public recognition, and admiration for your work as a couple. This is an excellent placement for a business of your own, that puts you at the helm, organizing and functioning as one. Look to the house where the Sun is located to see what kind of career you might choose, or how you will be remembered.

Chapter 3: Planets and Aspects

Sun in 12th house:

The Sun located in the 12th house brings challenges that most people find very difficult to deal with. In this relationship many facets of your personalities that you would rather keep private will be revealed. Your relationship itself may be hidden from view of others or they may not know it exists at all. In fact, if they do know it exists, they will not understand what it is all about. Unless the two of you are very honest with each other right from the start and disclose any and all secrets, then this will only serve to undermine your entire relationship. Any dishonesty will cause your relationship to break up, thus ruining any chance of growth within the relationship. It may be very important that you do not enter into legal marriage until all psychological patterns have been worked out because once they surface, separations and breakups can be devastating. This is an especially sensitive position of the Sun and it calls for you to be careful.

Sun Conjunct Mercury

Your relationship may not be so much an emotional relationship as it is an intellectual one. Yours is perhaps a relationship where you can exchange thoughts and ideas, study, research, spend hours in conversation and enjoy mental stimulation rather than physical. For you, sex takes place mentally rather than physically. Rather than having an emotional rapport, you may be more detached and logical in your relationship.

Your conversations will be excellent and since you have so much in common, you probably think the same ways about life in general. You will have no trouble understanding what the other person is talking about. There are very meaningful discussions indicated here and should you be involved in creative or business ventures together, then this aspect is an added boost for the conception of new ideas.

You can feel very close to each other with this aspect, without feeling vulnerable, and doing your “own thing” will be a prerequisite for the two of you. Trips and travel, whether local or long distance, are also part of this aspect. Sitting still may be difficult for you both.

Sun Conjunct Mars

At the very least you excite each other and arouse very strong energies within your partner and you will have to learn how to handle passion, anger and conflict in positive and creative ways. You will find that when you are together that you can be extremely competitive, anxious, boisterous, and energetic.

If you are looking for a relationship that is quiet and calm, then you have the WRONG relationship here. But if you harness all of this energy to create something, then you can make wonders happen together. The desire to win, to compete, to excel, to make war instead of peace, to encourage each other to succeed and to be courageous exist in this truly dynamic aspect. Remember, however, that because these energies are so aggressive and irritating, they must be channeled constructively or very negative results will occur. If you allow the negatives to operate, then the question is, “Which one of you will be the bigger bully to the other?”.

This combination demands activity and accomplishment and that should be the underlying element in your relationship. Because this aspect also generates a great deal of heat, the sexual, lustful and communicative levels will all be quite intense as well.

There is a great deal of self-confidence generated here, so try not to force issues beyond a workable level. Games of competition, physical exertion and sports are an excellent way to use this tremendous energy. As with other intense energies, you must be careful how you use this energy so you do not hurt other people around you. Because this aspect is so impulsive, you should be careful that the aggressive nature of this energy does not turn into anger and that you do not resort to physical abuse or injury to settle your differences.

Sun Conjunct Neptune

You may either view this relationship as idealistic or you may completely delude yourself regarding what this relationship is really all about. The real task for you is how to decide which one is reality. At the very least you may “feel” that the two of you have entered a truly spiritual union, and that might be entirely true. You may believe that the total attunement of your souls so transcends mere communication that you do not need to verbally express yourself. So you may start believing that your partner instinctively knows what you mean and what you need. The trouble with this line of thought is that it is surely an illusion. Your partner probably doesn’t know what you are thinking, much less what you are feeling. Your mistake is in assuming your partner is doing something he/she is incapable of. The best thing to do with this aspect is to assume nothing and specifically spell out your thoughts and ideas. The fact is, verbal communication IS necessary and you will avoid a lot of problems later by dispensing with any idealistic notions, before they cause too much trouble later.

Since Neptune is spiritual and non-physical, a platonic relationship may develop instead of a sexual union. You need to be careful of deluding yourselves into thinking that one or the other of you needs saving and you are just the (only) person who can rescue them.

Don’t be fooled into thinking that your partner has only a few little flaws because it is a fact that all of us have a lot of faults. If you put your partner on a pedestal, you will be very disappointed, disillusioned and perhaps feel very betrayed when your partner “falls” off that high and hallowed place and you find out he/she is just a mere mortal.

On the other hand, there is every possibility of magic in the air which can unite your souls in unspoken ways. You may indeed react more to each other through intuition and psychic rapport, thus knowing at times the other’s thoughts and feelings on a very high level. Loving each other unconditionally and without preconceived notions will see you through the darker times if you just learn to be yourselves.

Spending time near water can be very soothing for you both. You will be extremely sensitive to each other’s needs and you will seem very attuned to the universe. But keep one foot in reality so you do not have so far to fall should your perceptions be wrong.

Sun Conjunct Asc.

The Ascendant represents the energy that surrounds you and how you come into direct contact with your environment. With the Sun on your Ascendant, then, your relationship will be much more out in the open and obvious to others. This can be as little as people taking notice of what a striking couple you are or as much as they are very impressed just by being around you.

You are sure to be an independent couple, with you taking the lead over others. You will not likely succumb to social pressures. Honesty and sincerity will be what you stand for and you will always be true to your goals, thus winning the support and admiration from those in your environment.

You will be very confident, with the ability to accomplish quite a great deal together. There should be no excuses holding you back from doing something constructive together as a unit.

Sun Sextile Pluto

This aspect is sure to give a very strong and powerful bond. The energy present here will change both of you at very deep levels. In time you will know every aspect of each other’s personality and you will reveal secrets to each other that others will never know. A passionate and emotional nature is a powerful part of this configuration and this will help make you even closer.

You will make a very dynamic and powerful team and you can make major differences and changes not only in your own lives, but in the lives of the people around you as well. Should you decide to serve others in some way, then you will have a very positive effect on their lives. Any difficulties that you experience in this relationship will be transformed by this aspect. This relationship will be a very serious one and it is likely to involve more of you than any relationship you have had before it.

Because of the transforming and probing energies in this aspect, normal patterns of existence and behavior will be changed by your relationship and new insight into your lives will be revealed. Together you will have an unlimited faith that will see you through any situation and thus transform you in the process.

Investigating the unknown, delving into uncharted territories, achieving great accomplishments and creatively constructing something from virtually nothing are all possible for the two of you working together as a team. Scientific, business and financial endeavors may be your strong suit. You can be excellent bargain hunters together and you can work with and profit from taxes, insurance, wills or things connected with the dead. There are strong and potent clairvoyant and intuitive abilities at work here as well.

You can expect fate and unexpected events to play a role in bringing this relationship together and keeping it on course.

Moon in eleventh house:

The Moon represents our emotional wants and needs. The Moon located in the 11th house indicates a strong tie of sympathy exists between you, which is most wonderful for a love relationship or a friendship. There will be strong feelings of shared goals and objectives, thus increasing the bond you feel with each other. This placement of the Moon gives the sense that together you function as a unit rather than as individuals. Friendships outside your relationship will also be very important to you, as will activities in the home and sharing good times in general. This naturally harmonious position of the Moon doesn’t require hard work on your part to make your relationship work.

Moon Conjunct Jupiter

This “helping hand” aspect with benefic Jupiter will bring some wonderful blessings into your lives and together you will be very fortunate. Material and financial matters should never be a problem, in fact, you should find things very rewarding. Any misfortune is likely to be short-lived and you seem to bounce back stronger than ever with this helping hand. While you are together you will always be optimistic and in a very positive frame of mind. Your positive outlook will rub off on others through your own generosity, hospitality, good cheer and warmth. The home that you share together will be very comfortable and probably large and it will provide a haven for you and your guests to feel secure in as well.

Not only do you provide positive support for your friends and family, you also help to encourage and support each other as well. You respect your partner’s feelings and you try to keep them safe from the emotional hurt others might cause them. This strengthens the bond between you and gives you both a very emotionally happy and satisfying life.

Moon Conjunct Saturn

Obligations, duties and responsibilities may play a big part in this relationship. Because there is a karmic indication of repayment of past-life debts indicated here, you might find this relationship very confining and very serious in nature. Because you are likely working out these old debts and obligations, yours may be a rather cool, inhibited and insecure relationship, where fun and playfulness is not present. Emotional coldness is common with this aspect. There seems to be an invisible wall between you that denies you the opportunity to fully open up to each other. Instead, you may be very demanding and judgmental of your partner.

On a positive note, you will probably have a very strong attachment to each other, so much so that you may find that you become quite dependent on your partner. A Saturn-Moon bond is hard to break and if you can get past the emotional barriers that Saturn tends to build, then this can be quite an enduring, if unexciting, relationship.

Moon Semisextile Mercury

Through the energy of this aspect you will gain a better understanding of each other’s emotional makeup. You will enjoy telling each other “secrets”, share private thoughts, confide in each other a great deal, and literally talk for hours. Family history, your past conquests as well as your failures, visiting childhood “hang outs”, checking out your ancestry, looking at old photos, sharing your dreams and desires and discussing your views on parenting will be very important and special as well.

If you are not the type of person who opens up and communicates your feelings and desires, then this relationship will likely change all of that for the better. You will make great psychotherapists for each other, always ready and willing to listen. Discussions can become a little too personal at times, but it won’t seem to bother you, as you know you can trust your partner to keep the confidences that you have bestowed on them. The nice thing is that you can discuss your problems and have them met with understanding.

Moon Semisextile Asc.

This aspect indicates that you both have the ability to express your emotions without feeling vulnerable. You will seldom feel that your partner is holding something back or emotionally detaching from you. This is most fortunate for a love relationship where you understand each other’s emotional feelings at a very deep level and relate to each other as one, thus making your bond quite strong and durable. People in your environment will see that together you have a real emotional strength that they can relate to, and even envy. There will be a greater tolerance for each other’s faults as well, especially in difficult times. You share similar habits which will be very difficult to break, as they are programmed into your systems. The people you choose as friends or those you relate with will have the same emotional makeup or understanding as you and you will share a well-rounded emotional and intellectual rapport.

Mercury in 12th house:

Mercury is the planet of communication and mental activity. When located in the 12th house you will find that you get into some very deep psychological discussions about your relationship. These communications are pretty much confined to the limits of your relationship and remain unrevealed to the outside world. People may view your actions as very secretive, especially the ways in which you communicate with each other. Any problems that your relationship is having will be worked out “in-house”, away from the eyes and ears of others. Be careful not to continually probe into every little facet of each other’s lives as this can damage your relationship. Do not play games or try to manipulate your partner’s life. There is also the danger here that you will keep secrets from each other and, after some time, this may make you very suspicious of the other.

Mercury Conjunct Mars

Heated debates, mental sparring and even some down-and-dirty arguments are sure to play a major role in your relationship. There will be no beating around the bush here, as you try to “tell” your partner what you are thinking, rather than explaining it. Disputes, frustration and verbal abuse can be the result of these communications, not so much because you differ in opinion, but because of the ways in which you express yourself to your partner.

Right from the start this relationship might feel like the Battle of Gettysburg as you come under verbal attack and are criticized about every little thing that is important or that which has absolutely no importance at all. Unless you both work on being nicer to each other, this is going to be a very difficult relationship in the communication department. And that will, of course, spill over to all the other areas in your relationship.

Mercury Conjunct Asc.

A large part of your relationship will be centered on communication since you like to talk and share ideas together. Communication is lively and clear, with little chance of misunderstanding. This aspect also helps to improve communication with the people in your environment or outside your relationship. Your communication will not be rigid. You will need new challenges and experiences together to keep life interesting and stimulating. The only negative side of this aspect is that it gives a tendency for conversations to be solely for the sake of talk, with no depth or meaning to them.

Mercury Semisextile Jupiter

This relationship should be a real education for you. Your being together will either help you explore views of the world that you may have never seen before or it will offer new intellectual stimulus for learning something new.

Whether your relationship is for social or business purposes, this aspect is wonderful and beneficial to you both. There is an added hope and optimism in you that magnifies all of your good qualities and, in the long run, you will be very good for each other. At the same time you may also find that religious or theological expansion is a very important part of your lives as you delve deeper into the mysteries of life.

This aspect gives you both a greater tolerance and acceptance of your partner’s ideas and attitudes. It makes mutual communication much more pleasant and you will grow intellectually because of the friendly environment in which you feel you can exchange viewpoints and opinions.

Venus in 1st house:

Venus in the 1st house reveals much love and affection between the two of you. Although Venus is not primarily a sexual planet, she makes the relationship more intimate. This position of Venus bestows harmony and you will complement each other very nicely. There was probably a very strong attraction right from the beginning and that attraction is not likely to wear off in time. Therefore, this is likely to be a long lasting relationship. Any hurt feelings can easily be smoothed over or forgiven with Venus located here. Another important part of Venus here is a creative force that you share and, if put to good use, you can come up with something very special, either craft work, music, art or rearing children.

Venus Square Pluto

This relationship is sure to completely change all of your previous views about love. You may feel right from the start that there is a fated quality to it – and you may be right. There may have been some tragedy that brought you together or perhaps you were going through a difficult time when you found each other. You can expect to see a strong bond develop rather quickly, as well as the possibility of some quite obsessive behavior. It will be difficult to run away from this relationship! You may try, but the internal pain you probably feel from not being together may seem unbearable.

Be careful that one of you does not try to dominate the relationship or control the other through any and all kinds of manipulation. At the same time you may experience, to some degree, jealous rage, possessiveness, a lack of trust, or the feeling of being used or deceived in addition to an obsessive type of “love”. This is where the term “I fell madly in love” was spawned. Do not take this relationship for granted or think it will be just a one night stand, because you can get burned if you play with fire. Whether this relationship dies and is reborn like the Phoenix or goes up in smoke depends on how well you handle it. I think you can count on being transformed in one or more ways because you are together.

This relationship can easily find you doing things you never dreamed of doing before and breaking all the sexual rules you thought existed. You may suddenly break off other relationships to be in this one, no matter how long you were in them previously and no matter what their status was. This relationship, for good or ill, is likely to be very intense.

Venus Semisextile Neptune

There is likely to be a great deal of romance in this relationship. Your relationship may seem like a true spiritual union where magical forces have brought you together. The problem is that under this “illusion” you are not able to see each other in a practical or realistic way. You believe what you want to believe and it has nothing to do with the reality of what truly is. Come down from the clouds and look again! Avoid putting your partner above all else, failing to see their faults and shortcomings. If you don’t, the disappointments that may result can be devastating. Be careful of making too great a sacrifice for the other, trying to save them from themselves or playing the role of God. Perhaps you should consider a more platonic friendship until the fog clears. You need to be very honest with each other about what your relationship is and what you need from it. If love really is blind, then this aspect tends to indicate such a situation.

This can really be a very endearing aspect for love, but only if you see the reality of it.

Mars in 12th house:

Mars in the 12th house indicates that you need to be clear about and understand exactly what you want from each other in this relationship. An agreement must be reached and adhered to, and if it helps, put it into formal writing so that misunderstandings do not crop up later. Make sure to include all the demands you need to highlight so there are no broken promises later on down the road. Mars here can bring conflicts that greatly weaken your relationship and if you verbalize complaints here, then contradiction, double-talk and impossible expectations will be revealed in your conversations. Perhaps then you can really get to the sources of the difficulties in your relationship.

Mars Conjunct Neptune

Because of Neptune your goals and needs together may be difficult to pin down. If you can utilize the wonderful creative energies available with this aspect, then you can use your powers to make something from nothing, either physically or mentally. Neptune has a lot to do with imagination and the movies and photography, so you might come up with something very different, almost erotic in that realm. This carries over into your own personal sexual lives as well, unless either of you cannot fulfill the fantasy and desire of the other. Then ideals and illusions can end in disappointment. A great deal of honesty must be employed here so there are no misunderstandings about your expectations in each other. Otherwise, there can be intentional acts designed to mislead, confuse, deceive or manipulate the other. It may not be easy for either one of you to reinforce the other’s needs and give support when most needed. This may or may not be a conscious choice. A certain amount of detachment from your egos may be necessary in order to help your relationship grow and survive. Be careful that one or both of you do not become overly dependent on the other.

Mars Conjunct Asc.

This aspect suggests that both of you have egos that need stroking and this will be important to both of you. It does not show whether or not you will get along, but in times of crisis you can put on some sensational disagreements. You will spend too much time feeding your own egos to become involved in caring about the needs of each other. Making each other feel good will not be at the top of your list. But, irritating and frustrating each other will be. Problem is, neither of you will give in, or take what the other is giving out, and you will be very expressive in telling the other where to go, what time and how.

On the flip side of this coin, if other indications are favorable, this might be somehow helpful to you in that this aspect will reinforce your bond, making you even stronger together. People will see you as a force to be reckoned with, but be careful when applying that force so that people don’t turn against you because they perceive you as a threat.

There will be a great deal of activity between you because of the energy that Mars produces. Go out and get some exercise.

Jupiter in 11th house:

Jupiter is the planet of benevolence, good luck, good fortune, growth and expansion. Jupiter located in the 11th house is an excellent placement because it indicates good feelings in your relationship. You will allow each other to experience as many opportunities to grow as possible. Since the 11th house has to do with hopes and wishes, together you will both work very hard in pursuit of your goals. The 11th house also represents friendship and Jupiter brings good feelings and friendship. You enjoy each other’s company and instinctively feel that you are beneficial for each other. This placement brings blessings for material good luck, love and potential marriage.

This placement also indicates that you will have many friends and that the people in your environment will help or support your relationship.

Jupiter Conjunct Saturn

Success is guaranteed for you both if you work on your relationship, but it won’t happen immediately. The more time you spend together and the harder you work, the luckier you will become. This is a very advantageous position not only in personal matters, but in business ventures as well, just as long as you are not looking for immediate returns. Get-rich schemes attempted here will likely end in failure and disappointment. Above all keep your expectations practical and down-to-earth for the best chance of success. This aspect is not enough to make or break any relationship but it can solidify a good one, yet make an already poor relationship more unstable.

Jupiter Semisextile Asc.

This aspect indicates that you will grow a great deal just by knowing each other, no matter what the outcome of your relationship is. When you are together, you will feel good about yourselves, more so than when you were single or apart. You will find that there is less competitiveness, annoyances or irritations to deal with because of this energy. You will have a greater tolerance for each other’s faults or shortcomings than other couples have. This relationship may play an important role in your lives in that you will grow as people and even if the relationship does not last, the memories and the roles you play in each other’s lives will be important in your future. In some cases with this aspect, you may have met or joined together because of a common intellectual interest, something profound and deep for both of you.

Saturn in 11th house:

Saturn in the 11th house of friendship can bring difficulties as Saturn is not a particularly friendly planet, but is rather cold and reserved. Saturn puts a damper on your expression as a couple, so relating to each other in an intimate way will either require patience and a lot of hard work or it may not happen at all. This expression of energy also relates to friends outside your relationship and to groups, your hopes and wishes, and to humanitarian efforts as well. With all of this said, however, Saturn here can make yours a very enduring relationship, even though it might lack warmth and deep displays of affection. Long-lasting friendships are also indicated by this placement. Saturn in the house of goals and wishes can indicate that you do not view life or your objectives in the same way. This may tend to reduce the sympathy you have for each other’s efforts, thus bringing difficulties into your relationship. There may be fewer outside friends, yet more enduring friendships, probably with those older or more mature than yourselves. If you are experiencing the negative side of Saturn here, then friends may be denied altogether because of rigid attitudes that prevent you from sharing with others.

Uranus in 9th house:

Uranus is the master of instability, uncertainty, wacky and impulsive thinking and actions, and freedom. Uranus in the 9th house indicates that your relationship will face challenges in the way you view the world. Whatever preconceived notions you had before you came into your relationship, they will ultimately be changed as a result of your being together. In the early stages of your relationship you may have had constant disagreements about your personal views of life. Try to understand that this challenge in many ways is freeing you from old thought patterns introduced since childhood, and by challenging them, you can refine or change them for the better. If as a couple you cannot accept this, then the areas of philosophy, metaphysical theory, higher thinking, religion and spiritual values will be a very disruptive force in your lives together. Should you be able to put your egos off to the side and work as a team for the common goal of truth, then this will be a very favorable relationship, even if there are more than a fair share of disruptions.

Neptune in 12th house:

Neptune is the master of fantasy, illusion, delusion, spiritual wisdom and deception. With Neptune located in the 12th house you and your partner will be able to give and share with each other in very positive ways. When the chips are down and you need to rely on your instincts to make things work, then you can put your egos aside without feeling vulnerable and make the necessary sacrifices in your relationship. Taken too far, however, this can turn negative in that one of you may sacrifice so much that you become a martyr to the other. This can bring guilt or feelings of being taken advantage of. One of you may be unable or unwilling to stand up for your rights and, if carried too far, could bring difficulty into the relationship.

Neptune Sextile Pluto

Matters of spirituality, psychic awareness or communication, supernatural forces and mind-reading will be very strong interests in your lives and it may be impossible to deny or to get away from them. There may be times that you can actually hear what the other person is thinking without ever having to say anything. You might decide to play the role of psychic detectives, uncovering mysteries or hidden things. You enjoy anything that has to do with mind expansion or mind alteration.

Pluto in 10th house:

Pluto has to do with death and rebirth, regeneration, power and its uses or abuses, obsession and fanatical behavior. Pluto located in the 10th signifies this great power is being applied to some very clear objective. The objectives that you have set will not only impact your relationship greatly, but the people and environment around you as well. The downside of Pluto here is that you may use power for power’s sake, as its own reward, and when power is used along negative lines, then it can turn people against you, perhaps in very violent ways, because they see you as a threat. Pluto in the 10th house is very driven towards an end, thus making the two of you very ambitious. Other people will feel that power just by being around you. Should your ambitions be in the area of business and politics, you should do well as long as you keep the above tendencies in check. If you do not or cannot, then you will suffer the consequences and perhaps ruin your reputation(s). Either way, you may become very influential, making differences not only in your own lives, but for the world as well. Pluto here will not let anyone or anything stand in the way of what you want, so make sure you are careful of how you treat people. Don’t make the mistake of feeling you are the ultimate power because you are bound to meet someone more powerful and ruthless than you, thus bringing devastating results.
