Venus square Pluto can manifest as changes within relationships that are not comfortable for those involved. There may be powerplays within relationships, hidden or ignored relationship issues coming to light or obsession and insecurities on display.
On a milder note, there may be more intensity within relationships, that ultimately bring a relationship closer or deeper, or results in an improved version of the relationship being formed.
Venus is related to our affections and our value system. It is how we attract others and what or who we are attracted to. Venus is about our desire nature, what we look for in our relationships and how we bond with others. It is associated with an appreciation of beauty, art, harmony, and luxury as well as money.
Pluto is associated with power plays, unearthing the hidden, sexuality, intensity and crisis. Pluto can tear things down so that they can be rebuilt better. There is often a phoenix rising from the flames vibe with Pluto.
Planets are square when they are 90° apart (usually 3 signs away from each other). When looking at transits (as opposed to natal astrology) we usually allow an orb (allowance) of 1° so planets that are 89° to 91° degrees apart are considered square.
Squares are a challenging aspect that usually causes some sort of friction between the two planets involved. When planets are square, they are usually 3 signs away and therefore share the same modality (cardinal, fixed or mutable) so while there are differences, there are some similarities when it comes to how they approach life and problems.
