How do planets activate activity in our chart?

We are going to use Pluto as our example. Let’s say that Transiting Pluto has been in conjunction with your natal Venus for some time now. Pluto moves very slowly through the heavens. It can affect your Venus for up to three years. Pluto on Venus suggests transformation in your love life or changes directly related to your finances. There are other translations, but we will stick to the predominate, obvious few. The house placement of Venus and the sign that it is in will make a difference on what energies and areas of life as well as how the energies of Venus are moved forward, through Pluto’s push for transformation. The placement of T. Pluto must also be taken into consideration.

We will not discuss the meaning of T. Pluto on Venus in detail. What we are concentrating on is when this aspect will be enhanced and when to expect activity. The closer T. Pluto moves towards being direct (when it is less than one degree in separation and moving towards the specific degree Venus has in your chart) the stronger the energies become.

What activates this transit?

It might become activated when Pluto is directly on Venus but an inner planet most likely will activate these energies. The inner planets that activate energies or stimulate action are Mars, the Sun and at times Uranus when direct. You can often use Uranus to pinpoint the timing for events within a couple of days. The progressed Moon also stimulates activity when close to being direct. The progressed Moon has an influence for a period of three months, when in aspect, but the closer it is to being direct the stronger its energies.

E.g. If Venus is 15 degrees Capricorn in your chart, as Pluto begins to affect Venus, you will notice some activity, at least on a mental level. When Pluto is about 1 degree or less of being direct its energies will grow in intensity. If T. Mars or the T. Sun is moving towards 15-degrees Capricorn, or in opposition to this degree or making a square to this degree, it will stimulate activity and bring out the potential of what these energies suggest.

Verifying contact from the Sun or Mars will help you to pinpoint the potential for activity. You may be able to narrow down the time to a or two weeks. As mentioned, the progressed Moon especially by conjunction will often activate any planet it contacts, and you can often use this as a tool for pinpointing timing as well.
