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.

  1. My dad died when Pluto finished the transit over his Ascendant, he had a natal Scorpio Mars over the 12th house that mean accidental, in total isolation, helpless and unexpected death but fortunately without long painful illness.

  2. Hello Steve. After lookinng at some of the questions and comments I am assuming this site is more inter-active than those I have visited so far which is different in a good way. I was looking to get insight into thhe up coming transiting Pluto opposition to my natal Uranus which will happen around may through july of this year. Although it does look like it will be exact due to thhe station/direct, station/retrogradation of the two planets the aspect will come within one degree of orb. I see by your replies you don’t intend to comment on these aspects until having dealt with others like Pluto-Sun, Pluto-ASC and Pluto-Moon. So I would like to be informed when you are going to comment on Pluto-Uranus especially the square and the opposition. Obviously the transiting square which hits exactitiude five times between 2011 and 2016 with two of those times coming later this year will have global/generational effects however within thhis context it seems to me certain segements of the aggregate will be required to react or more consciously respond to the energies availiable when these two do their dance as they are going to in my chart later this year. I would like to say what I think is possible under this configration which for me involves Capricorn/Cancer and the 10th/4th house dynamic (with Uranus being retrograde at birth) and I would be willing to provide birth-data if it would be helpful but as I said I am looking for other insight besides my own.

  3. Can you comment on Pluto conjuncting Venus? I am two thirds of the way through this transit, but what puzzles me is all the stuff I read about how Pluto intensifies things. I have been single for years, and must admit I had been looking forward to this transit (!) as an astrologer had told me it would transform my life! But so far there is no change in my life at all; I have not got involved in any new relationship, nor have I even felt attracted to anyone. None of the intense, Plutonic, compulsive stuff that I keep reading about. No sex whatsoever! I worry that I am so screwed up that even Pluto cannot help me! What is going on??

    • There could be a time delay. I use precession correction for transits and that can push Pluto transits forward more than 6 months. Otherwise, the DC or even Moon in your chart might have more influence over relationships. Is your Venus aspectsed strongly compared to DC or Moon?

      • Jamie, thanks for your reply.

        My moon is in Leo (6th house) conjunct my DC. Venus is quite poorly aspected, I think – it’s in Capricorn (11th house) square Pluto and square Chiron.
        I really feel I need ‘unlocking.’ Was hoping Pluto would help! Is it possible that my Pluto conjunct Venus transit might have more to do with trying to transform self-worth issues – the inner life – than with relationships in the external world?

  4. I have been reading and looking into pluto transits because I am currently facing many years of it to come! I have a capricorn stellium in my 8th house. Right now pluto is going back and forth over my natal Venus 8 deg of Cap then on to north node at 14deg then mercury and Jupiter at 23 deg and finally (if I survive) my sun at 29 degrees! I have had major financial issues which r slowly resolving (Venus) so now with my north node I am wondering what next?
