Sun Opposite Pluto Natal and Transit

Sun Opposite Pluto TransitSun opposite Pluto in the natal chart creates an intense struggle to safely express your strong ego. Being such a powerful, determined and private person, you may go to extreme lengths to ensure others see you as a perfect human being, totally in control of yourself and all around you. If you believe that you don’t meet your own high standards, or that others think less of you, dissatisfaction can lead to negative behaviors or a crisis.

It is most often through interpersonal relationships in which this struggle is fought. Starting as an internal battle, it often leads to conflict with others, self sabotage or some other destructive process. The Pluto theme of death and rebirth runs deep in your soul. You may have intense fear of both death and rebirth, or failure and the process of change. Transformation is needed to perfect yourself, or some creation which you see as an expression of your identity.

Change and transformation will be a constant in your life. If your self-image, homework or productivity at work is not perfect, then you must change in order to get better. Accepting change and imperfections are most important so you can evolve out of the darker sides of this challenging aspect. This darker side can include, stubbornness, domination, manipulation, possessiveness, jealousy and spying. You may experience this in yourself or though friends, family and partners.

Your strong need for deep understanding and the truth, are complimented by your talents for research and investigation, the uncovering of secrets and sometime occult or psychic ability. These assets are your tools for transformation, to evolve out of the darkness or suspicion and mistrust, conflict and aggressive, or self-destruction through addictions such as opiates.

You may experience a major crisis in your life which forces your hand to make a major change. Even then, there will still be more change in your life. This is a life long process because of an inner need to work hard and aim for perfection.

At a certain evolutionary stage, you reach a point of great satisfaction and comfort with your self-image and how you express your power. You have a great potential to wield your power safely and productively, leading to an influential position of authority or leadership. You leave a deep impact on others with the ability to heal through your deep insights.

Sun Opposite Pluto Transit

Transiting Sun opposite Pluto can indicate some sort of crisis either with self-esteem, a relationships or an event. This may be due to a self-destructive character trait such as addiction, spying or stubbornness. In relationships, you may be the subject of, or the perpetrator of, manipulation, jealousy, domination or spying. Events may include the breakdown of an appliance or car, theft, violence, or the destruction of a possession by people of a natural disaster.

If something like these examples were to happen at this time, it is important not to be overly assertive, egotistic, or resistant to change. Things like this will more likely to happen if you have been stubbornly resisting change, or have been engaging in some habit that is destructive to yourself or others.

Things like this appear to happen out of your control, in a way they help you to realize that you don’t need to have total control over others or your environment. Even though you may experience a bruised ego during this transit, there is also great potential for positives if you are open to change.

Change may be forced upon you, or better still, you may instigate it and this transit will be less disruptive. The aim is to transform for the better. To evolve your soul so that you may live a better life and experience more satisfaction. It is most common that this would occur through a close relationship, such as a family member, close friend or partner.

This interpretation for Sun opposite Pluto transit can also be read for a Solar Eclipse and New Moon opposite Pluto.

  1. Your timing regarding this transit is uncanny Jamie. I’m a July 2 native. And I’ve been enduring this transit for many years. I literally lost everything. Partner, career, home, finances, looks, you name it. I was speaking about this transit just last night with my astrocartographer actually. What made it unbearable was when I relocated near a Pluto line. Pluto/descendant to be precise. So it’s happening through other people. Family being no exception. I know living on a Pluto line is difficult for anyone. Much less when Pluto makes this aspect. And even less when Uranus gangs up with it. Cancer is emotion. Capricorn is ice cold. Even though Pluto is off of my Sun directly in 14 Cap. I give this planet of destruction and transformation a true 5 degree orb on approach and departure. So am far from being out of the woods yet. Plus Pluto is slow moving. So it hammers you down slowly. But the the strike is just as painful if it were to be a quickie. Pluto is also a killer. You never get back what you lost. But if you survive the death, ironic choice of words, you do resurrect into something better. More spectacular. Stronger. More powerful. Like I said, seeing the trees and not the forest, doesn’t make it easy to believe that’s possible. But I have blind faith right now. Everything else was taken away. I know everything I lost can be replaced. Partner, home, career, there’s plastic surgery – lol- if I so choose. But my thinking today is—-was the price of admission going to be worth the end result? Guess time will tell. But I just needed to chime in and say this was the single worst transit I’ve ever endured. It’s like dying, except you’re still breathing and cognizant. To anyone in Cancer who is about to endure this, run, sprint and don’t look back if you’re living anywhere near a Pluto line in your astrocartography chart. Astrodienst.com under travel will show you for free. Namaste fellow aficionados. Thank you Jamie. Oh, one more thing, escaping through addiction compounds the problem of this transit. Spare yourself. You have to be sharp as a tack and see a therapist, priest, rabbi -a real professional to walk through the series of deaths that are about to happen. Cause all my supposed good time friends from life also evaporated. One thing is certain. Life as you know it, will never, ever be the same. Embrace the change, however painful and brutal. It’s the only way to survive this nasty combo. And move from your Pluto line immediately. What I say is minute in comparison to what destruction this planet opposing your Sun can wield. Unless, you’re a masochist and enjoy being a cosmic punching bag.

    • I couldn’t help react on your story, George. It is horrible!
      Being the reciever of some pretty heavy Pluto transits myself the past 3-5 years, I’ve had my fair share of Pluto energy in life. And no, things will never return to the way they were again, for better or for worse.

      From 2008 to 2014 Pluto squared my 8th house moon which is in a natal square with mars. A Mars, which is also sitting square down on my southern node. While Pluto has been transitting my 12th house since 2008 I’ve been in and out of depression, Saturn hitting it’s first return in 8th house Libra too, moving over natal Pluto (also in 8th house) – and finally hitting the jackpot with the P/U squares. Phew. And now Pluto is retrograding back to the nasty degrees where it has been wreaking havoc in my life, and Saturn retrograding Scorpio where the rest of my planets are located.

      I was forced to cut off all contact with my dad, an abusive alcoholic, I finished my education in November 2008 while the economy went straight into financial crisis. Somehow through 3,5 years of unemployment (which caused a severe depression), I was in a verbally and sexually abusive relationship – which didn’t really helped matters while Saturn toured my 8th house moon in Libra. When Saturn hit it’s natal point, I lost almost all the friends I had (P/U square 1), was kicked out of my own home (ex boyfriend broke up and acted like a total @-hole – exact with the 2nd P/U square) – and went through the healing process without any friends, only an elderly lady at which I lived.

      The next to last P/U square sent my mom to the hospital, receiving the message that she had Parkinson’s desease.
      I’ve never experienced anything so harsh in life as this. And I haven’t exactly seen the soft side of life from very early age either… This has been nothing compared to these past years.

      No, things will never be the same again after Pluto is done with you. You feel robbed. Trapped in the darkness. Sometimes like you’re a walking dead. Loosing everything – including friends – will hopefully make me a stronger person if I can survive this loneliness inside. I hear ya, George! I really hear you…
      I’ve booked a very skilled therapist – I guess it will be just around the time Saturn and/or Pluto turns direct again…. *sigh*

    • Hi, George. I’m so sorry to hear about how difficult your situation has been. It resonates with me because I live within some miles of one of my Pluto lines, according to astro cartography, but it’s a little complicated because other lines also fall through the same area; plus I’m a solar Cancer, third Deccan though. I’d be curious, as an astrologer, to see your chart, because some people don’t necessarily have Plutonic ‘protection’, if you will, in the natal. Ultimately, once you strip everything else away, Pluto transits bring awareness of survival issues, and, it has to be said, not everyone does survive a Pluto transit. The long-term message from Pluto is usually so hard, and necessarily transformative. The saying “that which doesn’t kill me makes me stronger” was made for Pluto transits. Best wishes!

  2. When Pluto squared my natal Moon, (10 n 8 Aries/Libra), Mars opposition i lost my only two siblings, my sister in law, my neice, my father and my only grandchild. Now it will conjunct my husbands Sun at 16 Capricorn. I’m terrified.

  3. I had a job offer a month ago, I really thought I was moving abroad to a new job, but I’m not going. Received The email yesterday. I’m Aquar/leo rising

  4. I have a double whammy. Natal sun in Aries opposite Pluto in Libra. Add transiting Pluto in Capricorn square my sun. That is s cardinal T-square, new moon in July will complete it to a grand cross

      • Could be, or authority figures. I like having my own way, being told what to do is not my thing

    • I feel you. I have natal Sun square Pluto – on the angles. 1st house Sun, 10th house Pluto. When Pluto was on my Sun in Sagg a decade or more ago, it meant Pluto also squared my natal Pluto. On top of that, I have a t-square – Uranus/Pluto in 10th opp Jupiter/Chiron in 4th. All I can say, given that the rest of my chart is caught up in a fixed T square (3rd, 9th, with 12th house stellium as the apex), is that every time a planet hits Toro or Gem, I have a Grand Cross. Just like you get one during this Pluto transit when anything hits Cancer.
      Trust me – you will survive this.

  5. Dallas police shootout 7 July. Sun opposite pluto. I’m seeing how astrology affects people and therefore world events.

  6. Hmm Im with George, it sux big time, Sun 0Cancer Merc 8, virtually nothing left (homeless couch surfing, poverty. cant get work, abandoned by most in this lucky country so must be my own fault) mind threatened also to be lost mentally with Merc opp (i also had Uranus squaring) and now my moon at 14 Libra is trying to recover whats left of the emotional half of that mindset…sure glad its done and hopefully well worked with, I did read your articles Jamie and some of it did help back then, I can say is if what doesnt kill you makes you stronger, i am still alive, so dont messwith me world hahahaha! Also had chiron return at same time, felt crucified by family ( 4th house) which opposes Pluto, constany required to be public about private details to prove who i am and justify my asking for help (10th) this crab felt like shell annialated lol!

    • I was doing readings back at the height of Uranus square Pluto. Nearly every one involved Sun, Moon or Ascendant being hit by Uranus square Pluto.
