Pluto Conjunct Ascendant TransitPluto 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. Thanks for this artical

    I’m waiting to see what happen when Pluto conjuncts Asc.
    My Asc. is in 8′ 35″ Capricorn that pluto will move on it asap. My chart, the pluto is placed on 9th house in libra 9’38” that may square each other aswell I dont know what will effect my life hopefully positive moment because the 9th house 5 stars on it – Pluto,Mercury in Libra :Mars , moon , the sun in Virgo

    I am beginner of astrology so I wanna read from you :-))

    Right now i really have hard time i used to have oppotunity to go around ,money to live, new apt.
    But it seems like i am falling from heaven until now and i feel so depressed with no job, no income , hopeless.. I just hope when Pluto move to Asc. Completely something may change

  2. Pluto is conjunct my asc 9’19” right now. It will be conjuncting my north node eventually at 22’14”. Pluto is also sextiling my saturn in scorpio8’49” and making a trine to transiting jupiter. Natally my pluto is 23’6″, neptune 25’30” in libra and sun 23’14” in pisces.

    I have tried everything that I could to find a full time job for 3 years since the econonmic downfall. I’ve wasted my money ($5000) and time (6months)on school for medical coding, a scam as no one will hire you without 1 year of experience even as a volunteer.
    So now I am back in school getting my prerequisites to pursue a masters in occupational therapy(OT). I am hoping so much that I will be accepted in this fall term as it is a 2 1/2 year program full time. But once I get my license, I will always have work and security for my older years coming up (I will be 58 3/14). What brought me to this path was my passion for horticultural therapy(HT). At this HT conference a woman well known in the field told me that the way to go was in OT as it will be another 10 years at least before HT will become a licensed practice and that I can use HT as an OT. So that is my goal now as well as finding a more rewarding way of sustaining myself thru a career that I can incorporate art and gardening, both of which I love as I am an artist and a master gardener. i have been a scenic artist for almost 20 years, however, since the economic downfall, there has been very little work and not much work for me as a gardener in the field either because my experience doesn’t matter to these people in this area. ( I grew up here but lived in Baltimore for almost 20 years where I was established without a Bachelors degree, whereas in the Chicago area without a Bachelors, even though I have over 15 years of experience, they won’t even look at me.)

    So my concern is Pluto on my asc and what it may entail for me in the coming future in regard to this path I have chosen. what do you think?

  3. Very interesting comment here. I’am having Pluto Trine Ascendant right now.(not exact yet) So far I notice that people just respect me more…

    When will u write about Pluto Trine Ascendant Jamie? :)
    It’s a great site,respect.

    • yes i will get to all the transits, just taking a little longer than I expected. Thanks for the compliment!

  4. This Pluto/AC transit is very curious to me. I have to admit, I’m not looking forward to this as I have a few things going on all at once.

    Pluto is 1 degree from conjuncting the AC. Saturn is one degree from conjuncting the MC. Natal Pluto opposes natal Mars in which both square the AC

    Can anyone fit the pieces together?

    • Saturn sextile Pluto will make this so much more beneficial for you. It’s in one degree orb from January to March 2013, (10-11 degrees Sco-Cap), then September 2013 (8-9 Sco-Cap) I will write up this transit before it happens. I think we can make some very substantial long-term achievements from it. I’m having tr Pluto trine natal Moon, with tr Saturn sextile natal Moon. So thinking about moving to a nicer, bigger home for the family is one manifestation I’m dreaming up.

  5. Thank you for your response, Jaimie. I’m hoping for a sextile between saturn and pluto, if this will be beneficial in any way. All I am seeing is a couple squares and an opposition involving the MC and AC, ALL AT ONCE! These powerful plants: pluto, mars and saturn, I feel they are not going to throw me a happy party, if you know what I mean.

    This saturn sextile, will happen January-March 2013? I really should have you do a birth chart interpretation. Do you do those, or your wife? I’d love feedback this transit and on my 2 fire kites in a grand air trine.

    Nice planning ahead for a bigger and nicer home for your family. Power to manifestation and of course, your wonderful work!
    Thank you!

  6. 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?

  7. 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!

  8. 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? ;)
