Pluto Transits

Pluto transits to the natal chart signals major life changing events which last about 18 months. As Robert Hand says “Pluto is not a mild or even very subtle planetary influence. You can always see its effects very clearly.” [Planets in Transit, p.477.]

Along with Eclipses, Pluto transits are the best way to understand the major changes going on in your life. They mark major turning points and you can gain understanding of the past by looking back, and learn to deal with what is happening now. Looking ahead can give you clues to your future.

  3. Can I get some answer on: What are the ramifications of Transiting Pluto opposed to Natal Pluto? Which at the same time will be squaring Uranus and my Asc.?

    • I expect this will indicate a really big change in life direction which could involve your personality, relationships and spiritual outlook.

  4. Hi Jamie,

    Hope you are recovering well.
    Transiting Pluto is almost opposed to natal Venus (19.12 on 12th house), what kind of major life changing events should I expect? When do you usually start to notice this transit?
    As Pluto is know to dig into the hidden and Venus is on 12th would it be a bad transit? … I am already having the Uranus transit opposition Pluto (19.56) coming right now and it’s the second hit ….
    Any insight on this would be very much appreciated!!

    • Hi Meli. I don’t think Uranus opposite Pluto will b e felt too strongly as it is a generational transit.

      The closest I have to a description of your Pluto transit is Venus square Pluto.

      Houses make no difference, only AC, MC etc.

      Allow one degree orb for Pluto transits, but you will be starting to feel it coming on now. Any major events will happen very close to the exact opposition. Do you use precession correction? It can make a big difference in time with Pluto transits.

  5. Transiting Pluto is retrograding on my natal Venus in September (trining my natal Saturn retro). Thoughts on what might happen. I’m in kind of a one-sided love situation me being more in love lol

  6. Hi Jamie
    I am heading towards two major Pluto transits next year 2017. One is the Pluto opposition ascendant transit and during the same duration Pluto square Saturn transit. What struggles should I expect to encounter under this life changing transits?? Any relief from other helpful planetary configuration during all this? I am april 2, 1982 at 12.50 pm IST.

    • I don’t get your Pluto square Saturn transit beginning until 2018. What is your place of birth or what is the degree of your Ascendant?

        • Here are the dates for Pluto conjunct DC:

          10 mar 2017
          02 jun 2017 Rx
          07 jan 2018
          30 aug 2018 Rx
          01 nov 2018

          Basically felt for 18 months but will climax near to those dates.

          Pluto square Saturn transit:
          05 feb 2018
          15 jul 2018 Rx
          12 dec 2018

          Although not as strong because Saturn is not as personal, this will be the more challenging year as it coincides with the transits to DC.

          • Thanks Jamie
            Pluto conjunct the DSC means a major struggle in relationships, isn’t it?
            Jamie relationships with the opposite sex has always been the most painful for me since the beginning.. although learning the lessons one by one, it’s always painful…
            Should tighten my belt for harsh master Pluto’s lessons in the years to come.
            Thanks once again

            • In this case it is more likely going to mean struggle because of the corresponding square to Saturn. You always have to take other transits and eclipses into consideration so it might be easier at times.
