Saturn Conjunct Pluto Natal and Transit

  • 880

Saturn Conjunct Pluto 2020Saturn conjunct Pluto is a major planetary occurring on average every 34 years. The last conjunction was in November 1982 and the next is in January 2020. When the two most serious and cold planets align there are hard times. Restriction and limitation force you to work hard at changing something particular in your life that has outlived its usefulness. This is a slow, evolutionary process that builds new foundations on which to prosper in the coming years. Before more detail about Saturn conjunct Pluto 2020, you will find information about the natal aspect and Saturn conjunct Pluto transit.

Natal Saturn Conjunct Pluto

Saturn conjunct Pluto natal introduces you to hardship at an early age. Your parents may have been poor or one of them may have been very strict, even mean to you. Even if you come from a wealthy family it is likely you experienced some kind of restriction when you were young that shaped your character.

It is also likely that any hardship suffered was prolonged or intense to such a degree that made you grow up very quickly. A physical, mental or emotional disability may have resulted from your difficulties or have been the restrictive influence that made you suffer more than most.

As a result of early privation or loss, you learned patience, self-reliance, and resourcefulness. Such hard lessons taught you perseverance and may have given you a ruthless ambition to make something of your life. When you do face hardship like everyone else, you have the force of character to face it head-on and endure it better than most. Your strong survival instinct keeps you going where others might fail.

When faced with a setback or restrictive influence in your life you can change and adapt to new realities. You can also stubbornly resist change but you will realize that you must evolve to succeed in life. You can fight against some restrictions and obstacles but others you must go around. If continued hard times get you down it is important not to be hard on yourself. Depression and self-destructive habits would only make matters worse and you should seek professional help in such cases. Fearing the worst can sometimes make it happen.

If you experience continued loss or failure it is important to stay ethical and play by the rules. Otherwise, you may face harsh criticism, scandal or legal problems. You must also resist any temptation to control or manipulate other people. It is possible that the hardships you face in life are karmic repercussions of controlling or ruthless behavior in previous lives.

Self-discipline, good organizing skills, and good time management make you productive and efficient. Your strong work ethic and tenacity can lead to a successful career with recognition and promotion. Marked achievements are likely and you may hold a position of authority or leadership.

You would work well in a career that has a defined structure and hierarchy like government agencies or large corporations. If self-employed you could build your business into a large undertaking and employ many people. Others will seek your advice and give you the respect you deserve. You will likely look back on your life with satisfaction and pride.

Saturn Conjunct Pluto Transit

Saturn conjunct Pluto transit is a time of hard work and serious business. You will need patience and determination as you face extra responsibilities with less time and resources to get the job done. As this transit approaches, events and people will force you to concentrate your efforts on one particular area of life that is no longer working well for you. It could be a relationship or career or a particular belief or behavior. Something in your life has outlived its usefulness and is holding you back, even if you don’t realize it at first.

You may experience loss, hardship or disappointment as you learn what it is that you must let go of or change. You may feel pressured or burdened by someone in a position of authority or a government department or large corporation. This may place a strain on your finances or force you to give up a hobby or family time. It is possible that a change in circumstances restricts your ability to enjoy other areas of life until you address the particular issue.

If something is broken you must fix it or throw it out. You cannot leave things as they are and resist the powerful forces that are at play. You must act responsibly and you may even have to be ruthless in taking out the garbage.

It is best to approach the coming change by accepting the inevitable and do what must be done. If you ignore what soon becomes obvious, or stubbornly refuse to change, you risk complications that will make your life extremely difficult. Even worse would be to take short cuts or cheat. Immoral or unethical behavior such as lying, manipulation or breaking the law would have serious consequences that would further restrict your options and freedom.

Accept change and go with the flow. Listen to your intuition and listen to the advice of professionals. This is a time for a deliberate, well-considered change. Once you let go of the limiting factors in your life you can use determination and perseverance to build new structures in their place. This is a slow, evolutionary process that builds new foundations on which to prosper in the coming years.

Saturn Conjunct Pluto 2020

Expect propaganda from leaders about power plays, world trade, genetically modified foods, and climate change. There will be debates, announcements or agreements about these things. The masses will be skeptical and protest the changes being forced on them.

China will expand its power and influence in an attempt to overtake the U.S.A. as the dominant superpower. Jupiter in the China horoscope is at 22°35′ Capricorn.

Update April 10, 2020: Coronavirus is hurting America’s place as a world leader while China appears to rise.

Use patience and determination and consider how your plans affect those under your care like your spouse and children.

  1. The January 12, 2020, stellium is conjunct EXACT my prenatal full moon…any insights would be helpful!

  2. Oh man my ex who was born January 13th is about to get his whole life upended according to his 2020-2021 solar return with this potent Saturn-Pluto conjunction.

    • What’s his Age Harmonic chart look like on his birthday? Any major patterns like a yod, t-square, or grand trine etc?

  3. Not sure how to compare my birth chart against this upcoming conjunction. But what I have read according to my sign suggests that my marriage will be put under intense pressure. This year alone has been monumental with changes within and without – including a sense of changes to come. I’ve been feeling it already. For a saturn conjunction with pluto to suggest the same makes me a little weary. Wish I could already know ahead of time without having to wait.

  4. I have the conjunction natal in Libra in 1st H (though not exact), the January conjunction will be square the natal one at 1 degree. Shall I be scared?

  5. Erno Rubik, inventor of the Rubik cube

    Saturn 2Can59
    Sun 20Can51
    Venus 25Can21
    North Node 27Can43
    Mercury 4Leo04
    Pluto 7Leo49

    Dob July 13, 1944

    I don’t know the calculation for the exact midpoint of Erno Rubik’s cube. Between Saturn and Pluto it is 20Can, the position of his Sun, and in resonance to the opposite of the topic stellium. Perhaps skew it to 23Cap to allow for Venus, NN and Mercury.

    My older brother could figure out the Rubik cube, back when we were teenagers, but it was beyond me. Rubik patented his invention January 17, 1974.

    It’s been mentioned, go to the North Node for relief if things get too heavy this season and winter. Rubik took 30 days to invent the thing, but only needed 30 seconds when he became a Master.

    • “It was not easy to sell the idea to toy companies, but Tom Kremer was able to sell the concept to Ideal Toy Company. The name changed to Rubik’s Cube, and it became a worldwide success in the 1980s. It won awards like Toy of the Year in multiple countries. The International Rubik’s Championship was held in 1982 and encouraged the sport of Speedcubing. The Museum of Modern Art in New York put the cube in its permanent collection.”

      Note Speedcubing goes parabolic in 1982, leading up to the Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Libra.

  6. this conjunction lands on my North Node in the 1st house. Does anybody know what this means? It also goes trine to my 5 planet stellium in Libra (Merc, Uranus, Sun, Pluto, Mars, Moon) Hope somebody maybe able to shed some light.

    • this can not be possible… The conjunction will be at 22o Capricorn – how come to trine a stellium in Libra?

      • i meant square… mercury 23 degree square libra. which is the end of the stellium.(the rest of stellium Uranus 18 LIb, Sun 12 Lib , Mars, 2 Lib, Pluto 2 Lib, Moon 22 Virgo
        Alot of things have happened to me at 22 degrees Virgo (specifically 22 Virgo moon) This is going to be something else i think.
        Moon is Trine and Mercury is square and NN Conjunct. With the stellium banjo playing its tune!
        Everything changes in my life every 2 years! jobs, girlfriends, home (often) country (often) no stability.

        • Hi Gilly, is your DOB 5th Oct 1972?.. As your chart is almost identical to mine!

          Libra stellium – Pluto 2, Mars 3, Sun 12, Uranus 18, Mercury 24… Moon 25 Virgo… NN 22 Capricorn.

  7. There are sinister, lurking presences due to the capture of means of communication – phone, computer and internet. Fortifying hierarchy to alleviate anxiety (unconscious busywork), oh-so-important male leaders protected from requirement to dialogue. This too shall pass.

  8. See my comments on the lunar eclipse (January 10th 2020) page. You can regard saturn conjunct pluto as “oppression and dangerous” (which puts pluto in control) or regard it as “the powerful control themselves” (which puts saturn in control). Since saturn controls capricorn it should be stronger than pluto. Yesterday Trump controlled himself. Let’s see what happens next. This may be a good time to quit addictions you may have. Ceres will help. Pluto will actually help Saturn and not fight him!!!

  9. I think Saturn/Pluto conjunction is a much more collective transit rather than personal. Personal touches should be the ones of Sun, Mercury, Eclipse and Ceres towards Saturn and Pluto. Personally as a Sag 23 degrees I find myself working a lot mentally these days, demonstrate new skills I learned during 2018/2019 in the realm of financials of a regulated industry connected to the ground and grids, get paid for them for the first time and managing personal financials. Also methodically letting go of personal unuseful dead weight. All this in a surprinsingly unemotional manner. I guess it works out fine for me for January and onward. So much of Sat/Plu for me.

    • This Saturn conjunct Pluto is also opposite Uranus for me and many in my generation. Uranus was in Cancer or Leo through the 50’s. It’s a very hard time for us to make the kind of changes we long for in politics, environment and social spheres. I guess we are learning important lessons about fear based thinking from the opposition to these changes. The optimism of Pluto Jupiter in Leo at our birth has waned.

  10. I am dealing with my second Saturn return, this conjunction and am in the second year of failed foot surgeries, breaks and unexplained foot fractures. Reading the aspects of this event is terrifying as a person who can’t walk or leave the house without assistance.

    • Saturn in Capricorn is supposed to create bones and knees issues… and that one should take advantage of this period to correct bad postures, asymetry, misaligned joints positions, etc… my experience tells me to never impose any change by force, in this domain.

  11. The last Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn was in 1518. African slave trading began. By this example, looking to Africa, we see that China has been working for years to establish control of Africa’s natural assets, if not their governments, in many countries. Perhaps this conjunction leads to an unveiling of their true power in Africa.

  12. I am having a quiet evening with my friend tonight. He is shadow:

    20Cap47 shadow
    20Cap17 light

    shadow: Jan 12
    light: Jan 11

    Sometimes it’s reversed.

    • There is 14 years difference in age. He likes the story about planetary JOY houses. So I draw him a picture of Joy. It is a pyramid. We are enjoying RUM, and draw a picture of rum. It is a reverse pyramid.

      Know your sugars, eh.

  13. This Saturn Pluto conjunction occurs exactly on my 22′ Capricorn Ascendant and yesterday’s full moon exactly conjuncted my natal 20′ Cancer Moon. And I’m feeling at ease: open, energetic and hopeful. I’ve left a period of life behind me where my focus was inwards, on healing and ‘fixing things’, and now the door is wide open for curiosity, action – fitting the 12th house – 1st house crossing of these planets, I think 🙂

    If anyone has more insights for me with my 22′ Cap Asc and 20′ Cancer Moon, I’d love to hear them!

  14. The Sun, Pluto, Saturn conjuncting planets are all within 2 degrees of my natal sun. Mercury is within three degrees, which means they are all very prominent in my solar return chart. Any comments?

  15. Saturn, Pluto conjuction is exact opposite my Sun at 22 53 in Cancer. 5th house Capri versus 11th house Sun. Interesting. When it happened in Nov 82 I was highly unstable but very creative. Learnt Astrology on my own.

  16. The conjunction happened in opposition with my natal Moon in Cancer (orb 1 degree) and square my natal Neptune in Libra (1 degree to the other side). At the same time Jupiter opposes natal Uranus, Mars conjuncts Ascendant and Neptune is exct (no orb) on my natal Sun.

    And I feel extremely well-balanced, quiet in the mind and I have a very strong sense that everything that is happening and that will happen is exactly as it should be and that everything will turn out to be all right.

  17. I have a big capricorn stellium (Pluto, Saturn, Jupiter and Mars) on my natal Sun/Mercury/AC 22 deg cap conjunction happening in March this year. It is also a time I am starting a new job (beginning of March) so now I am getting very anxious thinking it might be too much for me considering all of the planets piling up on my natal conjunction in 1st house. Should I reconsider it giving the planets affecting my natal conjunction or will it be more about the way I express myself that will go through the changes?

  18. “The conjunction of Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn on January 12 clearly indicated the danger of serious disruptions of public life. Even astrology could not foresee that these would be caused by a virus infection”

    • There it is, plain as day: January 12, Capricorn, no mention of the year.

      Next line capitulates to the 12th house.


    This is a composite photo of My Progress page. birth announcement (January 12). weight gain stopping at 21lbs 6oz. A height measurement, only one, 21”. The baby book was a favourite of the women I dated, but it’s molding and falling apart now. A barely discernible photo of me sitting on the porcelain with a huge smile, and room for the shadow.
