THE PLANETS - PLUTO

Moon, Sun and Stars Jewellery Collection

Pluto is the most distant and slow-moving planet in our Solar System. Discovered in 1930, Pluto takes 248 years to complete one cycle through the zodiac ~ in an elliptical orbit ~ spending between 13 and 32 years in each sign. Pluto's influence is all about transformation, regeneration and rebirth; but it also rules destruction, death, obsession, kidnapping, coercion and viruses - its adage is 'out with the old and in with the new'. The sign in which Pluto falls in your Natal Chart is known as your Power Sign. Pluto often turns Retrograde - its retrograde influence having a more powerful effect on a generation than ever.

In mythology Pluto (or more correctly Pluton) was the Roman god of the dead and the underworld (the Greek god Hades). With his brothers, Jupiter and Neptune, Pluto shared the empire of the Universe after the defeat of the Titans - Jupiter gained the sky, Neptune the sea and Pluto the Underworld. The Tarot card associated with Pluto is Judgement.

In Natal Destiny Charts, because Pluto spends so long in each sign, it exerts its influence on a generation (though not as important as Neptune).

The
Sign Pluto occupied at the time of your birth shows how you face the need to make fundamental changes in your life; aspects of yourself that you keep hidden from view; your compulsions and obsessions; your self-destructive streak.

The
House Pluto occupied at the time of your birth shows in what area of life your compulsive side manifests itself; where issues of power arise; where you find your self-destruct button; where you feel most undermined.

In a Friends & Lovers (or Synastry) Chart Pluto operates at a subconscious level, indicating the life-altering revolutionary effects your relationship might stimulate.

In both cases, Pluto works most powerfully from Scorpio and the 8th House of Sexual Affairs and Money.
