Transits – Pluto Conjunct the Sun

Pluto conjunct the SunThe action of Pluto in transit can be summed up in one word – transformation. When this little power house is aspecting your chart, he will make his presence known in no uncertain terms. Essentially Pluto is concerned with empowerment. It is through his action that we let go of what is unnecessary, eliminating everything that holds us back from emanating our true inner power and growing into our true potential.

The difficulty is that often we resist the changes that Pluto insists upon and that is when it may seem like everything comes crashing down at our feet – because Pluto doesn’t like it when we say no to him. The more you struggle, the tighter he grips.

Sometimes, this transit can herald a time of significant loss. There may be a health crisis or loss of relationship, status or job. There may be a personal crisis or ‘dark night of the soul’ experience. Whatever is lost now however, is making room for new growth. Often these are situations that have been unhealthy for quite some time. If you are open to the changes that Pluto initiates, you can come out of this period much stronger and more fulfilled than you were before. Out of the ashes arises a new you.

This transit can be marked by a period of intense self-questioning and introspection. You know profound changes must be made. Fuelled by a sense of life purpose, you are likely to finding yourself able to ward off distractions and get serious about your path. Pluto brings with him the tenacity to grab hold of what you really want and hang on for grim death! Often there’s a feeling of unwavering resolve and a determination to get to the truth.

Whilst you may have a furious desire to succeed, Pluto will admonish any selfish tendencies that get out of hand. You lose far more than you gain if you try to control everyone else. You can only control you. Any compulsive tendencies must be addressed. Brutal self-honesty is required.

When Pluto conjuncts your Sun he is acting upon your very identity so this transit can feel personal – and it is! Pluto is really trying to help YOU. He wants you to shine more brightly, to be the person you really are. Because Pluto moves so slowly, not everyone will get this Sun conjunction in their lifetime so in fact, that makes you a little bit special in Pluto’s eyes :-)

If you feel you are doing everything you can yet it seems like an all out war just to win one tiny step forward, you need to look within and make some changes. Often we are taught to hide our light, to be someone we are not or we are crippled by past issues. You may find yourself asking “Who am I?”.

If demons seem to be at your door, it’s because in order to see the light, you must encounter the shadows. Pluto is offering you a life changing experience but to truly take hold of that, it is necessary to overcome your darkest aspects and deepest fears. Old fears, phobias and psychological kinks can rear their heads at this time – as can carefully hidden secrets and your deepest desires. Facing your own inner demons is all part of this transit. It’s a cathartic and profoundly healing process. Cleansing, regeneration and renewal are your watchwords during the eighteen months or so that this transit is in effect. Out of chaos, creation is born.

    As I was 13 going on 14 at the time (and Uranus was just crossing my Asc) I wonder if you would reconsider your ‘advice’ if you knew it was being read by young people. Just curious.

    Hi Luna – I don’t read for anyone under 18 however, if reading in retrospect then it could indicate issues to do with the Father figure (the Sun) such as power struggles, divorce, death. It could also indicate a time of profound sexual awakening (Pluto rules sex). It could generally be considered a time that had an intense impact upon ones identity that had far-reaching consequences. ‘Consequences’ isn’t necessarily good or bad – just very profound.

    I am experiencing Pluto conjunct my sun now (I have sun trine natal Pluto and Uranus). Does this add to the transit? Thanks…. ;)

    Hi Angel – If you have the Sun trine Pluto in your natal chart then you are already familiar with and generally work well with the energy of Pluto. Pluto then transiting your Sun may not feel quite as ‘heavy’ as someone who doesn’t have an aspect between the two. Trines however are aspects that we don’t always notice simply because they are easy so the conjunction now from Pluto may help you to really use this natal energy.
