Pluto Opposite Moon Transit Pluto opposite Moon transit creates a gradual build-up in the intensity of the emotional life to a point where something has to give. Like all Pluto transits the build-up can last for a year or more but eventually the tension or pressure forces some major life change, and with the Moon, this will be in related to behavior patterns, compulsions, habits and most often in close relationships or with female family members.

Pluto represents powerful forces that you seem to have no control over, circumstances that just happen to you. This occurs in order to evolve to a higher level, and with the opposition these events or people can be very challenging and involve confrontations, ultimatums or extreme pressure. Something has to change in your life so it’s a good time to look deep inside, Pluto will probably give you little choice in the matter anyway. If you are comfortable with what you seen this transit might mean you are forced to defend or fight for something related to your Moon like family, the home or women.

People with their Moon between 3 to 12 Cancer will be feeling this Pluto opposite Moon transit in 2011 – 2012, just like Prince William (Moon 5 Cancer). Did he face pressure to tie the knot? William’s cousin Princess Beatrice also has Moon at 5 Cancer. In 2004 Claudia Schiffer had transiting Pluto opposite Moon and she gave birth to her second child. She also felt the darker side of Pluto by being harassed at her home and via mail from a stalker.

A more extreme example of Pluto pressure was felt by Brook Shields who also had Pluto opposite Moon in 2005. This was the year she went public in magazines and on The Oprah Winfrey Show about her battle with post natal depression which she shared in her book Down Came the Rain. This was a positive expression of her Pluto transit, the Moon also represent publicity.

But then came dark Pluto in the form of Tom Cruise with public condemnation of her use of psychiatry and antidepressant medication. Brook then showed the ruthless side of Pluto and fought back, telling Cruise he should  “stick to fighting aliens” and “let mothers decide the best way to treat postpartum depression.” She then went on to stick it up him in an essay she felt compelled to write, War of Words.

  1. uberqueenofwands: Meanwhile, there aren’t enough hours in the day… literally!

    tell me about it….I sleep in small pockets of time, disregard the clock whenever possible, and feel its more about quality than quantity…but, lets consider that we are all laying the foundations…..every comment, link, feedback, article, work of art, and meeting counts

  2. These are gorgeous images, and they remind me of tri-spiral carvings in Newgrange, an Irish neolithic structure which is illuminated at midwinter solstice. I’m too idle to put an image up at the moment, but they’re strikingly similar. there was a tv programme 10 years ago which put forward the idea that acoustics played an important part in these structures i.e if a bunch of people chant in a smoky dusty atmosphere, and it is lit at the right angle,the sound waves produce visible patterns in the smoke,very like the carvings. i haven’t tested it out but it’s a great theory. check out
    here’s a fun after dinner game though – shine a light on a wine glass, with some liquid of your choice in it, so that the surface of the liquid reflects onto the ceiling. then do that thing where you run your finger round the rim to make the glass sing. You should get some interesting patterns on the ceiling, like the sand patterns you get with chladni plates. It’s like watching the universe being sung into existence.
    sorry to butt in again, but this is so up my street!

    • Its called cymatics! I never thought of the light in the wine glass but I’m going to give it a go!
      Nat Geo did a documentary on Rosslyn Chapel in Scotland which is full of craved symbols which correspond to cymatic patterns (i.e those formed by passing sound waves through solids and liquids). What was really amazing – and pretty enlightened of the producers was to involve three psychics. Rosslyn Chapel presents so many mysteries. One of the psychics was sure that the whole place could be “played” i.e that the sounds locked in all the patterns, if played opened a portal to another dimension!
      Here is a small part of it and how they created the music!
      You’ll get the picture!
      “Like watching the universe being sung into existence -” lovely analogy! In the beginning was the word… (sound).

      • …precisely!
        terrific link with the Rosslyn Chapel cymatic (thanks for the new word!)patterns,the wineglass trick produces very similar ones. Another piece of the puzzle. I’m just a bit giddy with the synchronicity of it all because this was something I worked on at art college, and black virgins/cult of Cybele (regulus thread)was my dissertation subject at university…what does it all mean?! Maybe this site is a portal!

        • Where are you based Rachel?
          Did you ever come across a book called The World is Sound – Nada Brahma in your studies? Its all about sound waves as the basis for form. Excellent work and makes me think of the power of chanting mantram.
          I can see you me and Rob orchestrated in a small magickal cavern somehwere… being arrested for disturbing the peace!!!

          • southwest uk. No I don’t know that one – to tell you the truth I played with a knackered old chladni plate with almost no sand and a frayed bow at the Bristol Exploratory before they tarted it up. I saw the pattern, realised that That’s How It All Works, Obvious Really, and, content with this epiphany, went to find the children.
            I did find the work of Dr Masaru Emoto – how words and thoughts and other energies change the crystalline structure of water and therefore cell structure – fitted the pattern – of course mantra, blessing and cursing and kind or harsh words alter the brain and body, of course Thoth talked himself into existence!
            The cave’s a date as long as it’s Pluto’s not Plato’s! Always a risk with my Neptune.

  3. Rachel & UQW – funny that, but, playing with sound in ancient sites is something I am in the habit of doing and this has just triggered memories of a couple of times – not been to Knowth/Newgrange (yet) but theres a similar beehive shaped souteraine (underground chamber) at Carn Euny – that has similar sounding properties – works for voice – there are various cromlech and barrows in the UK where drum works to open the walls and floor, and toning produces red sprites and blue flashes in some, but, Carn Euny is specially good for sustained resonant intoning and overtones arise naturally – feel it needs a group, always wanted to try it with a circle of seven – one day….on a full moon opposite Pluto

    Rosslyn I have good memories of – bloody annoying for others but I can’t help singing there – in the lowest chamber the acoustics are very special – I intoned there for half an hour once, lost all track of time and was rescued by my companion – the walls and floor resonated so strongly that I really felt either they or I were atomising – I’m a natural baritone so it felt incredibly cleansing to the lower chakras, even felt as if there were lower ones below the feet – the sound there envelops and definitely opens channels, absolutely no doubt – after a while the vocal range extends as if the whole body is being unblocked – my companion knew the area well and told me that there was a network of tunnels in the river valley there (which we did visit) but she also said the chapel sits on a resonator chamber which connects to these, so, perhaps the feeling below my feet was the vibration reaching into that space – the whole building felt like being inside a musical instrument – it felt like rainbows in the night – I believe the rock Rosslyn sits on has a volcanic flume in it, where-as the surrounding bedrock is quartz/sandstone – the electricity stored in that place makes my hair stand on end (even tho most of it has drifted south)…..but, I feel sure that extrememly high pitched toning would produce light in the lower chamber, perhaps the solfeggios…we should try it sometime….on a full moon conjunct Pluto

    • To Rob and RAchel – go to and click on special charts and then Sound Charts – you can select any chart and it is “put to music” and visual patterns as per transit of seven planets. You can also select a more complex version and speed it up! its pretty good – select Mundane for the world tune.
      Rob – you will particularly “like” the discord around the time Elenin is close – end of Sept through October!
      At the present the mundane is very discordant – there’s a cardinal cross in place until the eclipse when it sounds better! A resolution?
      The tones are light but imagine if it were put through a synthesised church organ with full pipes into the ground… then we’d hear the gates of Hades open!!

      • that special sound chart is so cool – Why did I never find it before? The discord in my personal chart beginning sept when Pluto comes back for another swipe bears out my theory that it’s tin hat time then!

        • I only found it a few days ago! On another blog. Its really simple to hear the sounds rather than sit for ages with the numbers trying to fathom out when to stay under the duvet!
          I think something is going to take a swipe at us all in October. Did you check out the mundane chart?

          • fascinating and of great interest to the cat, Wizard – the coming eclipse/NM is setting up something imho which will break down/up/out/in (thats called ‘hedging’) at the equinox moon, infact the cardinal NMs seem to all be disonant – praps we should pay attention to the NM patterns over the next 4 months – that big disonance comes on and around the Scorp new moon, coincidentally at the end of the Mayan long count, on the 26/7/8 Oct -very Sun Ra orchestrated by Stockhausen and sung by the thousand voice choir with a Libretto by Nietzsche on beatbox

            with all the outer planets (inc Jupiter and Saturn) at early degrees each NM plays off these – the Leo NM is at the head of a yod to Chiron/Neptune sextile Pluto and is square Jupiter with Mercury opp Neptune (leave that one to you guys) – but, the Libra NM is square to Pluto and opp Uranus, Mars quinc Pluto, Moon quinc Jupiter – sounds like James Brown meets Beethoven and playing the Star Mangled Banner (Jimi Hendrix interp)to a setting by Orpheus with Alaister Crowley conducting – check ‘em out, and lets not fergit special guest, Elenin….

          • I’ll settle for The Mahavishnu Orchestra’s Apocalypse….

  4. lol, I had no idea about the sound horoscope. Very cool! I’m currently going through this transit. In fact, pluto just went retrograde only some 12 minutes from being exactly opposite. It will be direct and come exactly opposite my moon in January.

    I have been going through a lot of behavior changes lately. Whether of my own decision or not is another matter, but with Saturn geared to transit over my natal pluto in the 12th, I think there’s plenty more on the horizon. I may just wind up hiding in a cave somewhere. lol :-P

    Here’s the chart for when Pluto is EXACTLY opposite my moon.

      • Hi John, I copied the url to get to the pic, then copied it to my desktop. You can upload images from your computer in these comments:

        • Yes, I had tried that initially but for some reason it never showed up. Browser related? (google chrome via Mac)
          In any case, appreciate the techno-tag in! ^.^

          Oh! In addition, nothing has come up with my mother at all aside us talking slightly more often. Though, my sister just got a new job in a prison. (My mom works in a prison as well). I’m a baker. Go figure. ;-)

    • I hope not, if you are facing it. Find somewhere safe to hide out.
      I barely survived Pluto square my Sun before it kicked straight into Pluto opp Moon…I don’t know where the next punch is coming from these days.
      I did a chart for being severely beaten by a very charming gentleman and that was Pluto square Moon but that could have nothing to do with anything.
      Good luck.

  5. I will live this on my solar return 2013… will read carefully! Thankyou folks!
