Pluto Conjunct Midheaven Natal and Transit

Pluto Conjunct Midheaven Transit

Pluto conjunct Midheaven maximum orb 6°00′.

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

Others may find you overbearing, bossy, or obsessive, particularly in your career. Using threats and intimidation, you may abuse your power and influence as you climb the ladder. 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.

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

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

During significant transits to your Midheaven, you may undergo dramatic changes in your life direction or career. You are highly resourceful and can adapt or evolve in response to changing circumstances. Even a new job or path in life will feel more like a transformation for you, with old skills and talents being modified or used differently.

Pluto Conjunct Midheaven Transit

Pluto conjunct Midheaven transit can bring a peak in your career or a dramatic change in the direction of your life. The result of this significant transit depends 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.

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

If you are working to make money and not in the right career to satisfy you, 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 more tremendous success than you could have expected in your previous position.

Another 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 nor 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 eliminating something significant in your personal life to allow for further development in your career. 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 examples of Pluto conjunct Midheaven transit affecting famous people. You will notice that fixed star conjunctions to the Midheaven significantly influence this transit.

Barack Obama, almost former president of the U.S.A: Pluto was conjunct his Midheaven in 1995 when he started moving 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.”

20 thoughts on “Pluto Conjunct Midheaven Natal and Transit

  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.

    • Marina ~
      Loved your post.
      As a 67 years young woman – ♉♈♏, Pluto ⏹️ Sun, Pluto ruler, Saturn in Scorpio 12H, Grand Trine fire. Pluto and Saturn transit aspects repeat frequently as a splashed chart holder. Having awareness to my scattered energy early in life (Taurus practicality keeps compulsive buying for “all” my ideas at bay). Before studying astrology full time (last five years) – I rode the erratic waves of my karmic earth walk of chaos and made self care a priority. 2nd Saturn return I “put a stick of dynamite” under my life, melted down, gave it up to a higher power and started over. Since then life is much easier – being in acceptance of what is.
      Jamie, want to let you know how much I appreciate your website, the world picture you paint explaining topics and the high/low road.

  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.

  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!

  8. I had Pluto transiting my natal moon and Saturn in Scorpio conjunction during my 1st Saturn return ; definatly an interesting time.My son was born during this transit.I also divorced during this transit , and took custody of my son.A very transformative time to.say the least.( do you see the correlation with Scorpio / Pluto and the myth.Saturn the father moon the mother ? and the child ? .My son’s Sun conjuncts my natal Pluto in Leo.)
    I am a very pragmatic soul . ( lots of earth , Taurus rising , Sun and mercury I’m Virgo.) , but this transit came with all.of Plutos bells and whistles)
    I am very sensitive to subtle things.There was no shortage of unusual happenings going on at the time.
    I wouldn’t want to even share them .I know they happened but if it happened to someone else I would think they had lost their mind !
    Fortunatly I have a strong mental constitution and I viewed my experiences with the eye of a researcher.
    I have always been very spiritual.My birthdate equals 11 and my life path number according to numerology is also 11.I have had a very fulfilling life.
    Astrology has taught me to look for the higher vibration and focus in that direction.
    Whatever comes I embrace it.Pluto is now transiting my natal Chiron and zenith.I expect to study this transit with great interest
    Life is great ! Create your own unique path ,have faith and don’t feel ashamed or embarrassed to pray.It really works ! God is love and versa visa.Love is the ‘ God ‘ particle ! ” walking on water is a trick , life’s a miracle ! “Have a good day and life ! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

    • Hi Lurker. Thank you I did not have her in my files. But her conjunction is 3°32′ and I only include up to 2°00′ orb. I will add her other tight aspects now.

  9. This is undoubtedly the best thing that I’ve come across today in the internet. It was a long time that I have been thinking on this topic but I couldn’t satiate my quench for knowledge through any post that I read. However, today that I came across your article, I seem to have learnt a lot and I have also gained enough knowledge on this topic. Thanks once again.

  10. Transiting Pluto has been sitting on my natal Mars conjunct Part of Fortune at 24Capricorn (9th) for the past 2 years or so, and is about to go over my MC 27 in February 2022. For the most part, I feel empowered by the transit. I have written and published my first book and have really committed to holding myself in the highest regard. Coinciding with the Pluto transit, I have also been diagnosed with a chronic illness and I wonder if the MC conjunction will bring about an improvement or decline of my health. I have Vega at 14* Cap and Deneb 22* Aquarius conjunct natal Chiron 19* Aquarius (10th). You mentioned that the implication is tied to the fixed star. Could you please comment

  11. I was born Iin southeast Asia, on 7th August 94. Most charts said in natal birth, the pluto in 9th house scorpio conjunct my midheaven in sagittarius and also jupiter,pluto and north node in 9th house scorpio….they said I will be in good fortune but reality is sicken, I was 29 now, had been in prison for 2 years in my country ( Burma which is worst ), also have HIV positive, my family is broke, I was heroin addict for years since 18 but not anymore… how can my life be in such state if planets are true to words. Currently living and working with aunt’s family business in US, hopefully my life will better… what I mean is whatever u do, whatever u become, it’s solely on you!!!!
