Pluto through the Signs:
Herald of Transformation
Pluto affects the collective unconscious, new energies begin to
emerge from the invisible side of life. It stays from 12 to 30 years in
each sign. In the signs it affects civilizations and generations. Pluto
indicates the major struggles as well as the major initiation
processes in one's life. It describes the area of life where
transformation and transmutation take place on the physical plane.
PLUTO IN GEMINI:
Pluto was in Gemini from 1884 to 1914. In that cycle, family ties were
of great importance. There was insulation of the family group largely
because of lack of transportation. Communication between peoples of
different cultures or races had not yet been possible thus it was not
developed. There was little group interaction except for those
involved with family ties. The airplane was invented. That would bring
changes that no one could even begin to perceive at that time.
PLUTO IN CANCER:
Pluto was in Cancer from 1914 to 1939, bringing emotions and feelings
to the forefront. Sentimentality was the keynote. Emotions and
feelings were stirred up by the demagogues and the munition makers
who wanted a war to sell their products. Blind patriotism was played
up to an unbelievable degree. The songs of the period emphasized the
emotional side of the era. After World War I the boys were home and
disillusioned by the war. There were no jobs and the world was in a
depression such as had never been known. Still there was growth.
Everyone shared what they had, however little it might be.
PLUTO IN LEO:
Pluto was in Leo from 1939 to 1957, when the dictators came into
operation. World War II started in 1939, devoid of the glamour of
WWI. The four Lords of Karma were in incarnation - Hitler, Mussolini,
Hirohito, and Roosevelt.
Pluto in Leo shows the need for the individual to balance his ego
drives with respect to the needs of others. May tend to dominate and
use others for their own needs. May have struggles with children. The
strong will of the parents mean they would bring in offspring with
wills just as strong. 1951 to 1957 saw the rebuilding of all that had
been torn down. The egos born in this decanate have a burden to carry.
May have a tendency towards violence and rebelliousness that can be
ruthless and cruel. Many of the Storm troopers of Germany
incarnated very quickly, bringing over the ruthlessness and violence
they have been trained to execute. This explains why some of the
young people of today have no conscience about mugging, killing, and
raping. To counterbalance these types, many, many, souls born in the
same generation represent the Minerva aspect of Pluto. They are
spiritually oriented and tuned to a wisdom and understanding that is
truly beautiful. They are developed souls who have chosen to
incarnate at this time to bring the Ark of the Covenant into the New
Age. They are the hope and the glory of this incoming age.
PLUTO IN VIRGO:
From 1957 to 1972, Pluto was in Virgo. These 15 years saw tremendous
strides where the rights of the worker and the "little man" have been
concerned. Interest in health brought in the use of vitamins and
interest in organic foods. The young people became health conscious.
Health stores and macrobiotic restaurants sprang up all over the
cities. New methods of healing in natural ways came into existence.
Tremendous research in medicine began. Important breakthroughs
occurred and the relationship between the mind and the body was
recognized. Gestalt therapy came into being to break up the
repressions, insecurity and inferiority that Virgo all too often
represents. Computers ( a truly Virgoan product) mushroomed and have
increased in every area of the business, scientific, educational and
health world. The higher aspect of Pluto is involved here. With time
saved and work cut down, the individual has time to tap into his inner
resources, and to develop his spiritual potentials so the light and
wisdom within him can be released. If those with Pluto in Virgo will
use its highest aspect they will be truly great servers of the planet.
They will make excellent nurses, doctors, naturopaths, physical
therapists, and healers.
PLUTO IN LIBRA:
In the sign of Libra (1972 to 1984), Pluto's energy affects
relationships, marriages, unions, and partnerships. Here the lessons of
cooperation and compromise have to be learned. Global responsibility
must be faced. Events are now soul size and planetary size. Every
aspect of legislation and law and those who administer those laws
will be challenged. We have to be involved before we can evolve. We
are now touching the depths of all of us. The challenge of Pluto is
what group or what ideology are we going to serve.
In Libra, Pluto teaches us to understand the other fellow and think
in terms of that "other" out there. It brings up to the surface the
evils that have been hidden and kept out of sight. These evils have to
be recognized and redeemed. There has been a loss of faith in dogma
and creed. Pluto brings destruction of all outmoded legalities and
Many advanced souls have come in since 1945, and they will be the new
leaders and statesmen. The highest aspect of Pluto in Libra will be
the ability to recognize Love as a principle, not just as an emotion.
PLUTO IN SCORPIO:
Pluto will be in Scorpio from 1984 to 1996. Pluto's work here is to
cleanse and redeem the murky swamp waters in the depth of the
subconscious and instinctive self. Our egos are crumpled, our
illusions are finished, and we are forced to face reality. The shell of
our understanding is cracked and we are set free.
Pluto in Scorpio will revolutionize medicine and bring in new methods
of healing. New birth control measures will be taken that will not
harm the body. Cures for cancer will be found. Because the veil
between the planes is already getting thinner many children will be
born with highly developed extrasensory powers. There will be great
changes in educational methodology. The emphasis will be on helping
young people develop their own potentiality rather than pouring a
great many facts into their heads that they will not use in life. This
planet will undergo a purging such as the world has never known.
Those born with Pluto in Scorpio will be the souls who, when grown,
will have the power to usher in a new heaven and a new earth. The
ancient evils that have been under cover for so long, will be exposed,
cleansed, and redeemed.
The lost continent of Atlantis will rise, and part of it will come up as
intact as it went down. From 1975 to 2000, earth changes, personality
changes, spiritual awareness and illumination will be the order of
the times. The decision of mankind will determine what happens.
PLUTO THROUGH THE HOUSES
THE HOUSE IN WHICH PLUTO IS PLACED IS IMPORTANT. IT SHOWS
WHERE AND HOW THE PERSON CAN BEST MEET THE CHALLENGE OF HIS
DESTINY IN REGARD TO HIS HUMANITY AND HIS RELATIONSHIP TO THE
GROUP CONSCIOUSNESS. IT REPRESENTS THE PATH THAT COULD LEAD
TO COSMIC CONSCIOUSNESS. IT SHOWS HOW ONE CAN BEST HELP OR
HINDER THE GREAT TIDE OF HUMAN EVOLUTION.
PLUTO SHOWS THE HIGHEST ATTAINMENT THE PERSON CAN REACH IN
THIS LIFETIME OR THE LOWEST TO WHICH HE CAN DESCEND.
PLUTO IN THE FIRST HOUSE:
Here is the necessity for understanding the instinctive side of the
nature. If in Virgo or Cancer, there will be a deep-seated inferiority
complex. The individual does not have control or mastery over his
instinctive forces. He is never sure of his own identity. May be timid
and unsure of themself. Are usually gentle and very sensitive on the
surface. If they panic or get upset they can erupt like a volcano, and
everyone is surprised at the amount of anger that comes to the
surface. If Pluto is in Leo and afflicted, especially to the Sun, the
individual hides his insecurity by appearing bombastic and arrogant. It
is a cover-up for his lack of confidence in himself.
The personality needs regeneration. If too withdrawn, the person has
to learn to come out into the world and participate, instead of
retreating. If too aggressive, and the urge for power is
overemphasized, then the self must come to the realization it can be
used by the power, but not be the power. The desire to use power must
be overcome. Reactions to the upheavals Pluto brings will be very
important. The negative Plutonian tendencies of brooding, holding
onto hurts whether imaginary or real, the need to retaliate
(vindictiveness) will react on the physical body as well as on the
Moderation is a good keyword for this position of Pluto. To retire
into one's self refusing to share ideas, motives, dreams, and ambitions
can be just as damaging to the personality as the giving of one's self
totally to whatever idea or cause one is moved by.
The Minerva influence provides a perfect willingness to be a channel
for healing and to be used by the forces of light. The personality is
dissolved, and the light streams through the vehicle blessing all
with whom it comes in contact. This aspect of the self comes through.
The personality is dissolved in the solvent we call understanding.
"The disciple can stand in the presence of the Master when his feet
have been washed in the blood of the heart". Also "The disciple can
stand in the presence of the Master when he can hear every bitter
word as a cry for help and answer from the heart of love
PLUTO IN THE SECOND HOUSE:
Here is the house of values and resources. Here one confronts one's
appetites and learns to control them. Money and things it can buy will
be important. If the negative side of Pluto is working, the method of
attaining money could be less than honest. May be connected to the
underworld of crime. This position can bring great wealth, usually
from metals, mining or oil - things that lie beneath the surface of the
earth. Worldly possessions are important and often obtained
legitimately if there are good aspects to Venus or Jupiter.
With heavy afflictions, money could be acquired, but it could vanish
very suddenly and unexpectantly. Gambling and speculation could
cause loss when a heavy transit conjuncts or opposes Pluto in this
house. With constructive aspects, money could come through
inheritance. If the Minerva aspect was functioning, the individual
would consider himself a steward of his wealth, and use it to lift the
burdens of those that need help. There would be a spontaneous
outgoing expression of the desire to share.
The house in which Pluto is placed shows the karmic hangover from
the past as far as instinctive reactions are concerned. Here, Pluto has
to do with values, appetites, sensuality, and over-possessiveness. It
can swing from one pole to the other. There may be an austerity that
passes severe judgements on anyone indulging in weaknesses. Our
latest learned lessons usually involve the qualities of which we are
most intolerant in other people. The right attitude in these
situations proves whether we have learned the lesson or not. Pluto is
the underworld in ourselves.
Keen judgement, endless energy, and great patience are all necessary
ingredients for financial success in life. The tendency to view persons,
especially those with whom one is romantically involved, as
possessions must be avoided. Efforts to remake those in one's personal
world, or to force one's set of values upon others will meet with
unhappy results. As natural ruler of the eighth house, Pluto in the
house of values demands a sane attitude toward sexual appetites if
peace of mind is to be acquired. Man's chance to use the Minerva aspect
can give him god-like powers to create and reproduce. His abuse of
this gift called forth the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah.
PLUTO IN THE THIRD HOUSE:
Planets in this house affect the individual through the mind and the
nervous system. Here, Pluto works in a hidden and subtle way. There
will be caution, seriousness, and depth to the mind. At times a
tendency towards depression and negative thinking has to be
overcome. The aspects between Pluto, Saturn, and Mercury will be
very important for they will indicate whether this energy will be
used positively or negatively. This position can be used to probe the
secrets of the universe or be used to uncover secrets of a more
personal nature. The individual could be a good researcher in
medicine, or a geologist dealing with the earth. Metallurgy would be
a vocation with appeal. If Mars is highlighted in the chart there will
be ability in police work or as a private investigator.
There can be great turmoil in the mind and if it is suppressed the
results will not be good. If difficulties cannot be talked out with a
confidant, then they must be expressed either through writing or
painting. Often painting or writing out one's feelings can act as safety
valves and save the nervous system from too much pressure. After the
thoughts and feelings have been expressed, they should be destroyed.
Elimination of what has been expressed provides a mental catharsis,
and the health will not suffer.
In the early home life there may be unusual conditions where
relationships with siblings are concerned. How this will operate has
to be judged by the other aspects to this house. The Minerva aspect of
this position would illuminate the mind, and the individual could be a
teacher of spiritual law and bring light to others. Little escapes the
awareness here. They are able to evaluate situations and people with
great accuracy. For that reason they make great counselors and
PLUTO IN THE FOURTH HOUSE:
This house represents the foundation of the character inherited from
other lives as well as the genetic patterns inherited from the
parents. The energies of this house come to the surface in the latter
half of life. Success can come in the outer life through real estate or
property, especially if many Earth signs in chart. Imagination is very
active and intuitive faculties are good. Interest in the inner side of
life will manifest as the individual matures.
There is a very strong desire to have a home life where there is love
and security. However, this has not be earned if Pluto afflicted,
especially to the Moon. Pluto denies us what we want until we are
willing to relinquish it. A purging has to be undergone before the
Minerva aspect of this energy works. Home and mother play a very big
role, either for good or ill. Caring is the way to bring Minerva in. In
order to do so we must be purged of selfishness. This is what Pluto in
this house means.
PLUTO IN THE FIFTH HOUSE:
Here the ego has to be purged of any self-conceit or tendency to
arrogance. If the heart center is open, the creativity and wisdom of
Minerva is at it's disposal. The serpent force, the kundalini fire at the
base of the spine, is active and can be used creatively. If sex is
overemphasized, the Plutonian energy can raise havoc, emotionally,
mentally, and physically. This does not mean to suppress the sensual
energies but to use them wisely and always lovingly. Pluto here makes
two demands: Is it loving? Does it hurt anyone? When Pluto's powers
are used constructively, the individual can express his creativity
through any channel he chooses. If well aspected, can bring fortune
through speculation. If afflicted, the individual can attract wealth,
then lose it.
If there are children, they will be unusual and not run-of -the-mill
types. Selfishness will be overcome through the responsibility that
has to be accepted a s a parent. There are children of the mind and
emotions as well as the body. In this house, power cannot be
appropriated by the self. Illumination (light) comes by a willingness
to be a channel not the power. Pluto's keynote in this house is "Be
willing to be nobody - then you will be truly somebody". When that
consciousness is reached (usually through sacrifice), Minerva will use
the individual to bring light into the world, sadly in need of it.
PLUTO IN THE SIXTH HOUSE:
Pluto in the house of adjustments means a purging of the motives and
of the mind. A healer or a hypochondriac? The choice is there. If one
loses oneself in service one hasn't time to be sick. Being critical and
sitting in judgment are signs of deep feelings of insecurity and
inferiority. May feel submerged as an individual in the impersonal
materialistic environments of large groups and corporations. There is
an adjustment necessary where employment and fellow workers are
If afflicted, especially to Mercury, nerves are a problem that could
cause difficulties which are not easily diagnosed. There can be
trouble stemming from wrong reactions where others are concerned.
There could be instability and criticalness which are unexpressed, but
which are still felt by others. The individual thinks that because
nothing was said that the other fellow is not aware of his
criticalness. Because the veils between the planes are thinner than
they have ever been before, what is thought radiates, and the antenna
on the unconscious side of others is picking up the thoughts and
If the individual forgets himself in service to others, the Minerva
aspect of Pluto brings on tremendous healing power. The ability to be
a channel of healing comes naturally. Nursing, the medical field,
psychology or counseling as well as the ability to work with the
earth and treasures hidden in it are the fields in which there could
be great success. Take note of the relationship of Pluto and Mercury
in this house - it is important. There is a high tension in the nervous
system, and it must be understood and used rightly. The lack of ease
created by unused energies can play havoc with the psychological
well-being of the individual.
PLUTO IN THE SEVENTH HOUSE:
This house represents relationships in the outer world and how
others react to the individual. Pluto has a purging effect with a
particularly strong effect in this house. It is a very impersonal
energy in an area where personal attachments are very strong. It is
difficult for the person to have a close and strongly emotional
relationship. An uninvolvement where personalities are concerned and
a deep dedication to Love as a principle is the lesson Pluto brings to
this house. A wise choice of partner in a union or marriage is very
important as Pluto will hold the individual to his choice even though
he would wish to be free. The stubbornness or stability will hold the
individual to the promises he made regardless of the cost to the
The individual's ability to see both sides of a situation makes his
judgements unprejudiced and objective. His role as a mediator is
unquestioned. Law and legal matters can be of interest and talent
does lie in this direction. As Pluto rules large corporations,
corporation law can be a natural outlet for the energy. Your
regeneration depends on your willingness to cross out any personal
desires and be willing to serve "others" for the sake of service, with
no ends of your own to serve. The Minerva aspect of Pluto comes to
the fore when Love is more important than self. "He who loses himself
will find himself".
PLUTO IN THE EIGHTH HOUSE:
This is the true house of education for it is concerned with progress
of every kind - moral, mental and spiritual. This is an important house
for those strongly interested in movements of progress and reform. If
afflicted, it is easy to choose the path of degeneration, if that is the
way an individual can learn the most. It need not be. With Pluto in this
house there will be no standing still. One has to die to the old self
and undergo rebirth while still in the body. There are no misty flats
or drifting to and fro. It can mean a long life if the life force is not
wasted. Heavy affliction could mean the degeneration of the energies
through dissipation and sensuality.
This house represents the entrance to the next dimension. It rules
the psychic senses and out-of-body experiences. If well aspected to
Neptune and Mars, the individual may be clairvoyant. No one but the
person themself can help them come to victory over their appetites
and desires. There must be no desire to control others but a sincere
desire to help others find and use their own resources. Financial
independence can come through a legacy. The aspect between Pluto
and Mars is very important here. If one uses others for one's own ends
there are drastic and violent repercussions.
With rebirth through regeneration comes the wisdom of Minerva. The
death of the personality and the birth of the soul power is the
promise of the higher side of Pluto. One goes into the darkness to
find the light. Insight, self mastery, and the ability to stand alone, if
need be, are the gifts of Minerva here.
PLUTO IN THE NINTH HOUSE:
With Pluto in the house of the superconscious mind there is emotional
intensity in the desire to know and understand the purpose of life.
The breaking down of all orthodox beliefs and fixed opinions is
sometimes necessary before the individual can begin to feel satisfied
that there is a meaning and a plan behind all manifestation. There is a
strong desire to be a pioneer in the spiritual realms as part of the
individual's traits. To show others the reasons and methods of
regeneration is a compelling urge to this individual. This position can
bring a higher sense perception (clairvoyance) that stems from a much
higher level of consciousness. If used negatively, can make one a
fanatic where beliefs and religion are concerned. There can be a
tendency to force beliefs on others. If Saturn is very strong in the
chart, there is rigidity of viewpoint that indicates the need for the
individual to be more flexible in their thinking. If the individual
reaches up to his highest ideals and principles, illumination and
wisdom will be his birthright.
There is a strong desire to explore far horizons, whether on earth or
beyond it. If that urge is followed, the person can bring back to
others the knowledge that has been gained. Pluto (Water) in a Fire
house can cause steam, or the Water can put the Fire out. It's how this
Pluto energy is used that makes it steam or sizzle.
PLUTO IN THE TENTH HOUSE:
Here a power struggle occurs, the person wants total control. This
just cannot be. Pluto here breaks up crystallized conditions. The
individual's place in the limelight is very important to him. If the
Pluto energy is used negatively, there will be a climb to the top
regardless of how many people are trampled on to get there. The
person will find that the position of prominence attained cannot be
maintained, many difficulties ensue. Pluto acts as a purge in this house
to cleanse the materialistic selfishness inherent in the drive for
power. Diplomacy and patience have to be developed if you wish to be
successful. The need here is to learn the meaning of "Seek ye first the
kingdom of heaven and all else will be added unto you". "All else"
includes peace of mind, abundance, and the right position in life.
These are gifts of Minerva to those who know Pluto's mission in one's
life. The Tenth house is the highest house in the chart. You must be
perfectly willing to bear burdens in order to relieve others and free
them from their misconceptions.
PLUTO IN THE ELEVENTH HOUSE:
This is the house of friendships, goals and objectives. Therefore the
choice of friends and the goals chosen are going to be of utmost
importance. If the wrong choice of friend is made, there can be sudden
and unexpected disruptions. Great care must be taken in choosing the
right groups with which to associate. Great discrimination must be
used. There is a great need to choose your associates with care.
Friends will come and friends will go. While they are in your life
serve them well and you will purge yourself of all negatives
inherent with this position.
A well aspected Pluto here, especially to Jupiter, Venus, or Uranus
gives great devotion to principles and to ideals to further the
development of mankind. These people are the leaders who fight for
causes that will benefit others. They have charisma and people are
willing to follow them. They have many friends, and without friends,
goals and objectives are not achieved.
PLUTO IN TWELFTH HOUSE:
This house is the most psychically permeable. Those who are willing
to go through the purging will see light on the other side of
darkness. Anyone with Twelfth house planets feels cribbed, cabined
and confined by life on earth. It is difficult for them to submit to the
rules of the road and to live by these rules. The enemy lies within.
The highest side of Pluto in this house means the willingness to be a
channel to help those who are limited and afflicted. The willingness
to be nothing in order to serve humanity can bring the wisdom aspect
of Minerva into operation. As long as the individual tries to live a
personal life (in the sense that he chooses to enhance his own
personality and his own power) he is confused and lose his sense of
identity. He bogs down in a swamp of self-pity and self-recrimination.
Again the choice that is so intimately tied with the Twelfth house is
to serve or suffer. The choice is there. Only through service and the
dissolving of the personal will, will freedom from the negative use
of any energies in the Twelfth house come.
