Pluto Conjunct Ascendant Transit

Pluto Conjunct Ascendant Transit Pluto conjunct Ascendant transit can represent a couple of years of intense soul-searching. Like other transits to the Ascendant, relationships may be affected, but the main focus is on you. Close Richard Nixon had Pluto on his Ascendant between 1965-67.

For him these were years of introspection. He had lost the 1960 presidential election to JFK, and after campaigning for colleagues in 1966 he took off for an extended holiday to South America and the Middle East in 1967. “Toward the end of 1967, Nixon was experiencing a crisis of indecision about whether to run for president the following year. He consulted with long-time friend the Reverend Billy Graham, who urged him to run. He later held a dinner at his home with friends and all except his wife supported a presidential bid”. He went on to win the 1968 presidential election.

Margaret Thatcher had Pluto on her Ascendant from 1989-90. The Iron Lady had already ruled Britain as prime minister for a decade and her combative personality ruthless disregard for the opinions of her colleagues was wearing thin inside her own party and with the electorate. In November 1990 her deputy resigned, and the next day she was challenged by Michael Heseltine. Thatcher narrowly won the first ballot, and stated she “intended to “fight on and fight to win” the second ballot, but consultation with her Cabinet persuaded her to withdraw. After seeing the Queen, calling other world leaders, and making one final Commons speech, she left Downing Street in tears. She regarded her ousting as a betrayal.”

Celebrities who have more recently experienced this transit include Nicholas Cage (2006) who decided it was time get out of movies and try something different, stating “I feel I’ve made a lot of movies already and I want to start exploring other opportunities that I can apply myself to, whether it’s writing or other interests that I may develop”. He was back on the big screen in 2008. Jamie Lee Curtis also had Pluto on her Ascendant in 2006 and told Access Hollywood that she had “closed the book on her acting career to focus on her family”. She returned to the big screen the next year. Prince William experienced this transit in 2007 when it was announced he had split with girlfriend Kate Middleton, yet he was seen with her in public a number of times in 2007 after that announcement, including on a holiday to the Seychelles.

  1. I have to set my ground. I´ve worked a lot now. I don´t know what to do neither feel sure within. The only thing I can do now is to deep breathing my inner crustacean -ASC- in order to go out of my crust. It has always been so! I have simple and raw fear for others, I don´t really like the way they act. I hope I find my strength I do have many responsabilities.

    Thankyou Jamie!

    There are times when I read, and others when what is read incarnate on myself! Significant learning, I guess!

    Marina? Still up there?

  2. Hi Jamie, Not used to you and Marina on two different sites! But Googled Pluto conj. Sun and ended up here! Glad I did! So I have a progressed Sun in Capricorn and Pluto is at 11 degrees in my progressed 12th. It will conj my progressed Sun at 19 degrees. Not sure how long this transit will take or what it will mean for me. Natally though, I have Pluto on my MC. Could it mean blows to my ego in the work place? I have been experiencing this off and on now for weeks. Should I get out now?

    Congratulations too Jaime on your new website!! Will visit more often!

  3. Pluto is in exact opposition to my ascendant NOW and crossing over from the 6th to the 7th house while it’s at it. Almost died last few years but now I’m out of the woods and wondering wft now? 😉 Any chance for comment on that aspect? Especially since it’s right there with this Uranus square crunch?? Heeeelp? 😉

  4. I was guided to your site by friends of mine who suggested it to me. And I’m so glad they did! Your scopes are nothing short of prophetic as I read through what happened to us Leo rising persons last year. THank you so much!

    I do have one question for you regarding Pluto opposite Moon transits. Could you shed any light on what one can expect from this transit? Specifically natal Moon in Cancer, pluto in Capricorn. Also, there is a day when natal Pluto in Libra opposes transit moon at the same time as the other.

    Thank you.

  5. Jamie,

    I’m sure you don’t need help coming up with article ideas, but if I may make a request, I would love to read your take on Pluto square ascendant or Pluto conjunct nadir. It seems like most astrologers focus only on the ascendant and the midheaven, but transits to the bottom of your chart seem to be the most devastating.

    I have Pluto transiting my nadir now and Saturn will be there in about 3 or 4 years. I’m wondering if Pluto is demolishing everything and Saturn will come along to test what I have rebuilt or if Saturn will just destroy everything again and anything I do the next 3 or 4 years is basically pointless. I guess my strategy is to rebuild what I can and Saturn will take away whatever is not working at that point. Just so tired of hard times with no hope or end in sight.

    My natal Saturn is conjunct Pluto in Decan 3 Libra (1H) and they will conjunct in Capricorn (my 4H) to square that natal conjunction in a few years. I hope that will be the end of the hard times for me for a while, but it’s disheartening to think I’m only about halfway through 10 straight years of hard Pluto and Saturn transits! Of course they have to take turns hitting my Sun and Moon and Venus and Mercury and Mars, too. (Assholes!) Depression this bad lasting for so many years is just so awful. The curse of a balanced/spread out chart is you’ve always got a hard transit somewhere.

    • Sure Anthony, will be doing all of them. Concentrating first on transits to Moon then AC, Mercury etc.

  6. Hi Jamie – my asc is at 18 capricorn. I have had one hell of a ride while pluto has been endlessly trailing through my12th house. I can give everyone some examples of this transit here: Early on, while pluto was opposite my 6th house sun, my now-husband was embroiled in endless hostilities and legal battles with his ex over child custody and alimony. Immediately thereafter I had an almost complete health break-down which I am still recovering from, and which totally changed the way I feed my body, not to mention increased my awareness of the way environmental toxins have badly impacted my physical body too. The last years I have also been under constant seige by some higher-up colleagues determined to undermine me. Despite how well I work, I’m either loved or hated by authority figures – nothing in between! The ‘hidden enemies’ are now out in full force especially these days with my profile otherwise rising. I alone am vocal in standing up to them – being I suppose the only person really standing in the way of them negatively using and exploiting our association for their own purposes, not the common good. I have tried resigning just to end the crap and stress, but even that has, for various reasons, not worked out! I am still there for a short while yet… Now my parents have started to fall ill – my father with cancer, my mother with her heart. When it is exactly conjunct my asc early next year, pluto will start opposing my 7th house Mercury and square my 10th house mars. HELP! There seems to be no relief in sight nor end to the destruction! I have in this current period also pluto trine both my natal 9th house pluto and uranus and my 3rd house moon – can’t see much in the way of benefits from those pending transits at the moment – what do you think?! Will this ever end?!

    • My AC is the same as yours Maria so we can compare notes as we go. I don’t believe you can put down your experiences to Pluto being in the 12th house. This is way too general and there must be specific transits or eclipse cycles to pin things on.

  7. Dear Jamie could you write an article how to survive when Pluto squares a stellium? When pluto will hit my Ascendant 5 Aquarius it will be in opposition to natal Mars in Leo and square natal Uranus in Scorpio. And later after promising trine to natal Sun it will square my taurus stellium wishing the range of 11-29 degrees. Loss, revolution, change, transformation….OMG. 😱

    • Hi Alice that is a fair enough request. I do intend writing about the stellium aspect pattern so I will include how to handle transit to like. PLuto square and Saturn square are the hardest of transit so I will use them as examples.
