You are vulnerable to being emotionally manipulated and controlled. Dominating women, female relatives or pushy salespeople may use sinister tactics to destroy your self-esteem and boost theirs. By tugging on your emotions, making you feel guilty or fearful, they will try to take you money or something you are emotionally attached to.

People who you are emotionally attached to, like your partner and family members, may act out this transit if you try to ignore or suppress your own intense feelings. Being less in control of your own reactions, you too may resort to emotional manipulation to win some personal battle.

Try not to act or react based on your strong feeling now. Trying to control others will only end in guilt and shame. With your judgement skills clouded by your irrational moods, it is most important to avoid making important decisions.

  1. Hi Jamie–great article on Moon opposite Pluto on the natal chart. Would many of the same characteristics apply to the Moon conjunct Pluto in the natal chart? Thanks for sharing your excellent insights and knowledge.

    • Good question Sally. There are a lot of similarities with all Moon – Pluto aspects, most of all Moon conjunct Pluto. However it is only the opposition that I really notice the bipolar traits.

  2. Hi…smile. Moon opposite Pluto natal and transit…sounds like an artist needing a medium for release. I am only comfortable with myself when I can express the deep emotions that I feel creatively and I have cultivated numerous ways in which to do this; sculpting, dance, singing, writing, gardening. It really works and if you are so inclined they can be sold for real money…lol.

    • Thank you Rose. I hope you manage OK with it. I feel sorry for older generations who had to hide their symptoms or be thrown into an asylum. I would think that Pluto has a stronger association this those evil institutions more than any other planet. Torture instead of medication, absolute loss of any control or power, banishment instead of understanding.

  3. This transit is looming ahead for me in 2019. And when Pluto does transit opposite my natal moon, it will be in the 8th house. Yikes! Any advice on what I should be doing now to prepare for such an intense encounter?

    • Hi Christina. I guess you could nurture and support the Moon related parts of your life, mom, intimate partner, home, your own vulnerable emotions. Look to any fixed stars on your Moon and aspect to your Moon for more detail.
