Pluto Conjunct Midheaven Natal and Transit

Pluto Conjunct Midheaven TransitPluto conjunct Midheaven in the natal chart often leads to a position of influence and renown. Success in your career or calling is important for your self-esteem, and you may go to extreme lengths to reach to top in your chosen field and leave your mark on the world.

Others may find you overbearing, bossy or obsessive in general but particularly in your career. You may have a tendency to abuse your power and influence as you climb the ladder, using threats and intimidation. More underhand tactics such as bribery or guilt tripping are also possible. Of course you may instead use your natural talents and gain fame and riches. How this turns out depends on other aspects to your Midheaven and any fixed star conjunctions.

This aspect can indicate that one of your parents or a specific grandmother was an intense person or at least had a profound influence on your upbringing. The more possessive, controlling or interfering they were, the more likely you are to use such behavior in your own life.

You do have a strong sense of purpose in life and may decide on your career very early. The same applies to other life goals which you pursue with ceaseless determination. Your success in life will be more rewarding and memorable if you use you considerable power and influence openly and with honest intentions.

During major transits to your Midheaven you may undergo dramatic changes in life direction or in your career. You are extremely resourceful with a great ability to adapt or evolve in response to changing circumstances. Even a totally new career or direction in life will feel more like a transformation for you, with old skills and talents being modified or used in different ways.

Pluto Conjunct Midheaven Transit

Transiting Pluto conjunct Midheaven can bring a peak in your career or a dramatic change in the direction of your life. The result of this major transit depend on how true you have been to yourself and how honestly and justly you have followed your chosen path. The outcome can range from fame and fortune to a humiliating fall from grace.

Your sense of purpose and desire to succeed will dramatically increase as this transit approaches. If you have been following the correct path for your soul then success and renown are possible. You will enjoy increasing power and influence and your career may transform into your true calling.

If you are just working to make money and not really in the right career to give you satisfaction, extreme forces will be working to nudge you onto a different path. You may experience some losses and feel insecure along the way. However, a forced change in direction will eventually lead to greater success that you ever could have expected in your previous position.

One other possible scenario is that you have reached a position of power and authority through underhand tactics such as bribery or criminal behavior. You may have abused your power or used threats and intimidation to climb the ladder. In this case Pluto will be neither kind or subtle.

Your family may also be affected by the events in your professional or public life. Part of the transformation you are experiencing may involve the elimination of something significant in your personal life to allow for further development in your career. It is possible that a parent or grandparent may move to a care home or pass away. Perhaps one of your children may leave home, thus freeing up more of your time and energy to pursue your career or other life goals.

Below are two very different examples of Pluto conjunct Midheaven transit affecting famous people. You will notice that fixed star conjunctions to the Midheaven have a significant influence during this transit.

Barack Obama, almost former president of the U.S.A: Pluto was conjunct his Midheaven in 1995, the year he started making moves to become a politician. He received public support from the sitting senator Alice Palmer, and then announced his candidacy. The following year he won the seat. His Midheaven is on fixed Star Toliman gives “beneficence, friends, refinement and a position of honor.”

Juan Peron, former president of Argentina: On 19 September 1955, Juan barely escaped Argentina with his life following a three-day bloody revolution led by his generals. Transiting Pluto was conjunct his Midheaven by 0°09′. The star on his Midheaven was Al Jabbah, which gives “loss and many dangers, a violent and intemperate nature, and to a military officer danger of mutiny and murder by his soldiers.”

  1. Hey Jamie: Great topic! I was born with Pluto conj my Sun, and I had Pluto conjunct every traditional planet in my chart plus my rising sign by the time I was 30. That left me with a morbid fascination with Pluto, and I feel very angry to witness its downgrade to a ‘Kuiper Belt Object’

    My Pluto rising sign transit coincided with my first house Saturn return. At the time I was living in West Africa and that combo almost killed me… a case of typhoid, a blackmail attempt, and expulsion from the country.

    Very interested in seeing you quote from Robert Hand. For years I have read those same pages over and over. What fascinates me right now is the idea of a Pluto trine Pluto transit. Hand says that this trine is unstudied because in the 20th century it was only experienced by people in their 80’s and 90’s. But I guess because of Pluto’s quick orbit through Scorpio, in this century a younger generation will experience its effects (as I am currently). I’m hoping for a pay-off for all the intensity of those conjunctions. Peace, RevJ

  2. Hi RevJ, like you i have a stacked virgo, but pluto is at the end so i missed all the conjunctions. we both have the trines to look forward to after all those squares. looks like our best years are ahead of us!

  3. In Oct 2003 my only child Stella was born when Rx Pluto was on my DC (32′)
    In May 2004 not long after her christening. My Dad told me he had terminal cancer, Pluto was bang on my Yod reaction point. (20′)
    This is the most sensitive point in my chart and aspects tons of planets at 22 degs ( Jupiter, Neptune, Mercury, Osc Lilith) If there is one spot in my chart that’s going to to have to take a wallop from Pluto and cause a volcano to erupt. This is it.

    By Oct 2004 he was dead and Pluto had retrograded back to the DC.

    In Oct 2006 When Pluto was sextile Mars I separated from husband.
    2007 Pluto was opposite Part Of Fortune. My best ever year for my Illustration career. It gave me the boost I needed to go it alone.

    In May 2009, I met Jamie on the internet Rx Pluto was applying semi-sextile my Sun.(1 degs ) and I switched careers from Illustration to Astrology.
    In Oct 2009 we met in the flesh, I just noticed Pluto was opposite Vesta (22′)

    So of course Pluto more than “sucked” when my Dad died. But it just shows you nothing is permanent on this planet. Physical bodies decay. But our soul is eternal. This whole Pluto/Saturn thing is all about stripping things down, not getting attached to money, people, habits…
    If you don’t make the changes from the inside then Pluto will take it from the outside. And it is ruthless. If a relationship or job is toxic then Pluto will remove it. Simple as that. It’s a cleanser, it rejuvenates, it flushes out the shit!

    Pluto is just colonic irrigation of the soul.
    With a Pluto square the AC (09′) I relish in regeneration. But a strong water chart might not find it easy when Pluto comes along and freezes them to ice.

  4. Hello Jaime or Marina,

    I recently came upon your site and am thrilled to see the work you’re doing.

    I noticed that in your assessment of B.O. MC on his fixed star of Toliman you mentioned “beneficence, friends, refinement and a position of honor.” which are obviously more positive or higher vibrational archetypal energies associated with that specific fixed star. Most of my understanding of Toliman as a fixed star and it’s archetypal energies seem to be low vibrational. So in the spirit of understand Toliman as well as my own Uranus 12th House Toliman I am curious to know how you see Toliman and what archetypal energies you assign to it.

    Thank you.

    • Oops! I thought the photo would be the avatar similar to the one that was generated of that little heart creature on the right hand side. Haha.. jokes on me I guess.

  5. Hi Jamie,

    What would be the significance of Transit Pluto conjunct Aquarius MC, POF, Mars and Fixed star Altair?

  6. Hi Jamie,

    I have my midheaven at 19 deg Capricorn. Can you tell me or direct me to find out what star is close? Thank you Amber

  7. Would you apply this to a Scorpio Midheaven, which I have at 11degrees and right now Pluto is exact on my ASC at 17 Capricorn. Not been feeling too well….lol Very profound on the ASC…this means decades on my first and then second house (Aquarius is intercepted in my first and my Moon and Chiron are in there.) Pluto sucks!
