Pluto Conjunct Sun Transit

Pluto Conjunct Sun TransitPluto conjunct Sun transit heralds major life-changing experiences with deep and lasting change in the direction of your life. Pluto has a reputation for stripping away things to the bare bone in order to facilitate soul evolution. However, this does not have to be the case with this conjunction. There may be events that result in loss or separation, but only if those things are standing in the way of being true to yourself.

You will notice you are more driven, ambitious, and determined to achieve success and may even become quite ruthless if anyone stands in your way. You may become obsessive and compulsive about changing certain things about yourself and others.

If you can safely harness this intense increase in energy, you can gain a tremendous amount of power and influence over your own life and over people around you. You can be a positive force for change, and regeneration. But it is critically important that you take a spiritually enlightened approach this year.

If you try to control others for your own selfish benefits, or if you try to eliminate things in your life that still have value, powerful forces will rise against you. Only those people, attitudes, and beliefs that are outdated will be easy to eliminate and replace. You will soon know if you are on the wrong path for your soul’s evolution if you face resistance, especially if it were to become very intense or violent.

So don’t worry about what others are doing, especially the competition. Focus on your own needs and wants with an eye to self-improvement. Think about what changes you can make that will make you a better person and make the world a better place. A good measure of success is to see if you are expressing your identity in its purest form, not if you are making the most money or accumulating the most expensive possessions.

Pluto Conjunct Sun Transit Celebrities

Leonardo DiCaprio experienced Pluto conjunct Sun transit from late 1990 through to the end of 1991. He was just sixteen years old then and already had some experience in TV commercials. But it was Pluto that brought the big breakthrough, firstly in a few appearances in TV shows in 1990 just as Pluto was approaching his Sun. Then in 1991, with Pluto right on his Sun, Leonardo got his break on the big screen with Critters 3, and then also that year he landed a starring role on the high rating TV show Growing Pains.

Prince Charles had Pluto conjunct Sun transit from late 1992 through to the end of 1993. This marked a major turning point in the Prince’s life. He had not been living true to his soul’s desire, and in December 1992 it was formally announced in parliament that he had separated from his wife, Princess Diana. In 1993, Pluto revealed his secrets, with the media release of private phone calls between the Prince and his true love, Camilla Parker-Bowles.

Jodie Foster had Pluto conjunct her Sun all of 1994. She starred in two very successful films that year, Maverick and Nell, the latter winning her critical acclaim and three gongs for the trophy cabinet. Jodie also produced Nell.

Brad Pitt had the Pluto conjunct Sun transit all of 2006, a very intense and life-changing year for him. Professionally, he starred in the critically acclaimed film Babel, which he stated was “one of the best decisions of my film career”. In his personal life, January 2006 saw Brad legally adopt Angelina’s adopted two kids, and their surnames were changed to “Jolie-Pitt”. January was also the first time their relationship was publicly confirmed. On 27 May 2006, just 14 days after the second conjunction of Pluto to his Sun, Angelina gave birth to their daughter Shiloh Nouvel. They made $10 million from the sale of images of their baby and gave it all away to charity.

    • Thanks for pointing that out Ray, Sun and Jupiter. I noticed the last solar eclipse was on her IC too.

  1. Sun~4 53 Cap IC
    Moon~1 50 Aries DC
    Uranus~2 54 Cancer MC
    Mars~0 18 ASC

    Pluto con Sun/Uranus con Moon has been invigorating to say the very least,but incredibly empowering and liberating.I had no problem deconstructing what didn’t work in my life and what was conditioned/pespected of/by the world.My perceptions of the old needing burial and transformation has been an impinging(love that word)motif to the madness of living with a G.Cross.The cross prepared me,by doing the homework,for this last 3yrs of Pluto on my Sun/IC.Fear had no place in it,or i may not be writing this post.Fear should only warn you to put on the brakes before you hit the wall,and reverse it.

    A key purpose to my life has been delineated with the my M-Lilith 28 13 Aries/OSC-27 37 Aries 8th,and it’s relationship trine my Sun/IC~sextile Uranus/MC,working through the dynamics of the Cross. A greater purpose for the unity of male/female essence/qualities and the transformation of Lilith issues was seeded in the Marriage of Christ/Magdalena (IMO),a new archetypal symbol to be formed that was suppressed by…..we wont go into all that.All this after the intense homework mapped out through my G.Cross,envisions a new paradigm that brings a close to the separation/duality of Man/Woman on Earth,for those ready,and the de-demonising of the Lilith factor for all.Institutions that have been impeding that will not be sticking around for long.We do have a few years to contemplate that.How we do may depend on how we visualize these transformations(Pluto/Uranus square)to manifest.

    I also went through my 2nd Saturn return as Pluto did it’s dance,so that dates me for sure.:)

  2. No wonder I am feeling so exhausted and socially withdrawn! Life’s been a roller coaster ride for the last couple of years, both financially, emotionally and professionally.

    Can anyone please share with me how I would be affected by Pluto transit?

    SUN – 9 CAPRICORN – in 9th House
    MERCURY – 15 CAPRICORN – in 9th House
    VENUS – 22 CAPRICORN – in 10th House

    CAPRICORN is ruled by SATURN, and my natal Saturn is 15 Cancer(R) in 3rd House.

    Still keeping my faith that things will work out for the better, and hope to see light at the tunnel soon 🙂

  3. 12/30
    cap in merc and midheaven,as well..
    not a nightmare-exactly and actually it’s attracting men-but i can relate to the the ups and downs financially…
    here is something i heard about pluto/sun from another astrologer:
    it is better to use the energy for moving aspects of your life(and other peoples’ lives)that are outdated-it’s good for progress in certain areas of your life other than the more worldly areas…

  4. I feel better about my life than I have felt in all my life since this transit. I stopped smoking in 2009, lost 90 lbs, and continuing to lose weight despite a few minor setbacks. I’m ending a 12 year relationship that fooled me into believing that I had something worthwhlie when actually I had absolutely nothing. I’m very confident and positive about my life. People love being around me and actually plan dates, gatherings and meetings around me. My religious/faith group have all of their meetings at my house and they travel far to come to my meetings. People enjoy the brightness and positivity I bring to the fore.

    Financially things are changing slowly, however I know prosperity is on it’s way soon. I have come up with an invention that will save many lives. I am so eager to launch my idea and do my duty for world peace.

    For the first time in my life I’m so happy. I know being a Capricorn (December 31) happiness is not something easily acquired. But for some strange reason I’m so hopeful of my life and it has never been this way. I even sweet talk myself and tell myself wonderful things everyday all day long constantly. I’m my biggest supporter and cheerleader! I’m more attractive, sophisticated and classy and I even have the reputation of being the ‘town beauty’. I work out at the gym, I walk 8-13 miles a day. I’m also in a belly dancing class which is so much fun. I’m acquainted with people of different cultures and is often invited to many events. I’m making jewelry again which has been an all time favorite. I’m back to my rituals and hold the earth as well as the univere and my ancestors in high regard. I’m so grateful and appreciative of the people in my life and how my life is going.

    When Pluto was in Sagittarius I was living in pure hell. Life for me was filled with dilemmas, trajedies and traumas. I suffered for 10 long years of anger, hopelessness and depression. Pluto in Virgo was transiting my Neptune in Sagittarius and the way I viewed things during that time was through delusion. There was a lot of deception going on too. It is probably safe to say that it the most unhappiest time of my entire life! I’m so glad it is over. Winter does turn into spring! Now life is just wonderful! It is a gift!

    I believe I’m up for a Cinderella transit. Transiting Chiron is conjuncting my natal North Node and transiting Neptune is also conjuncting my natal North Node both in the 9th House. Chiron is on his way to my 10th House where natal Pisces resides. Hmm, now I know why I have come up with an idea that will save lives.

    Natal Capricorn Sun is in my 7th House along with natal Capricorn Mercury with transiting Pluto conjuncting both and I am having so much fun right now; even though, I’ve experienced some frustrations with my current breakup with children’s father. Transiting Saturn is in Libra in my 5th House, transiting Sun and Venus in Gemini are in my 12th House where Psyche in Gemini resides, I wonder what is this about? Transiting Jupiter and Ceres in Taurus are also in my 12th House entering Gemini. Transiting Moon in Pisces in 10th House, transiting Moon conjuncts Midheaven, transiting Chiron also conjuncts natal Moon in Aquarius in 9th House. Transiting Mars in Virgo in 4th House where there is much domestic strife, but I’m making it.

    Wow, I did not know life could be so wonderful and I was even told it gets even better in my 50’s. I’m 41 and looking a good 32! For all Capricorns now is your time. It will get better. My advice to you is do not worry and do not ever get angry, literally. And always be kind, gentle and noble and do everything in moderation and do not talk too much and never meddle in other people’s affairs and never, never allow anyone to run your affairs. Do not waste your time with something that does not make you happy or is not profitable! Put you heart, mind and soul in all that you do and do not do too many things at one time! For everything good in the universe is attracted to you! Remember this. That is my advice to all Capricorns at this time. Be well and prosper!

    • Hi Oracle

      Thanks for this positive post..i’m also capricorn 7 deg sun and have ascending gemini..I understand exactly what you mean…I am determined now more than ever to be sincere to the self and be positive and sincere to those around. The biggest challenge I’m finding is that being sincere in my own home with others where i’m tested. Now i have to make the decision to be self in the home or move out…not clear on that yet on how to tackle this but hopefully the divine will show me the way soon. It’s easy to step aside from those that are friends and colleagues but with certain family members i find it a challenge…hmmm. I noticed I blew up yesterday which is unlike myself to do but i know that was a sign that i am allowing things to be as they are rather than making the decision which is important for the self. This is the year to totally transform. Any advice on dealing with family members?

    • ps…we have a wedding to go out of town which i was looking forward to and found out the 2 people who have been my biggest challenge are attending from my house now too. I just don’t want to be in there presence as they would be living at same place…so much resistance to be around them…tickets bought but now i just don’t want to be around them but its my closest cousins wedding. I am so challenged to the point I could let the ticket slide and remain home and be in peace. How would you handle such a situation? Feeling like another dilemma instead of a do i break free?

  5. So I am a Capricorn, born on the 22 of Dec and my sun is in Capricorn, but only 0.21 degrees. What pattern should I look at – the capricorn or the Sagittarius? Thank you for the help!

  6. I dont want to bring a black shadow over the subject, but something must be said. Pluto´s transit over personal planets may bring losses through death. I could see that at my mother´s birth chart – while Pluto transited her eigth house and conjuncted her sun, she lost her mother, a dear uncle, a dear cousin and a dear aunt within a short period of time. Also a friend of mine, while Pluto transited his 2th house, conjuncting his moon and then his sun, and squaring his natal Pluto/Uranus conjunction, lost his wife (car crash), then his father, finally his mother.

    • It is OK to bring this up because it does happen as you have shown. Many of us have experience of loss coinciding with difficult Pluto transits.

      • Thanks, Liege and Jaime, for bringing up the most taboo subject in the world, death. When Pluto was conjunct my natal 3rd deacon SAG ASC, I lost three family members, two within two weeks of each other, suddenly. At the time of the first two sudden deaths,transiting Saturn in Cancer was conjunct my natal 3rd deacon Cancer sun. Uranus in Pisces was transiting my fourth house.


  7. Pluto has been retrograding back and forth over my 9th house Mercury (4º Cap). On my good days I try to stay optimistic and look at this as emotional purging in preparation for the ‘big show’ when Pluto conjuncts my sun at 17º Cap. This journey has been 2 years in the making, and its too soon to say “Are we there yet?” but I refer back to this post periodically to remind myself that my ‘Happy’ is coming, if I stay strong and work through the emotional baggage that will prevent me from being able to truly accept what’s to come.

    P.S: Enjoy your gathering coming up this week! Have a drink for a Canadian fan who would love to be there.

    • when pluto was on my mercury in 2008 (11th house 0′ capricorn) I was obsessive about learning astrology. Saturn had also just entered virgo. I learned ridiculous amounts of information in too short of a time period and my brain eventually fried when saturn return hit in 8th(squaring my mercury as well).

    • By the way, try to recollect what happened to you last year by this time, and the other before… It will be interesting! it also depends on the other aspects of your birth map, natal and transits.

      • oh great thanks Liege. This time of year always seems a turning point for me in general. racking my brains now to remember what! x

  8. Hi Kaz!
    Sun will be conjunct your Pluto once a year, as it happens to everyone. So, the effects are similar, but not so strong or definitive as with Pluto conjunct Sun. Most people will never experience Pluto conjunct Sun, since Pluto´s movement around the zodiac exceeds the time of an average life span…

  9. I’m so sorry to hear of the bloggers who lost loved ones during a plutonian transit to their personal planets. Losing a loved one cannot at all be easy. I never looked at it that way, that Plutonian transits can mean death, literally. I’m so sorry. But death can also mean different things depending on perspective. I just ended an eleven year relationship with my children’s father. Our relationship died never to be reborn again. It is a really, really good thing though. I’m super happy, because now I can continue to transform my life. I’m open to all possibilities and have learned from my mistakes. My Sun, Mercury, Nymphe, Isis, Osiris and Achilles all conjunct and reside in my 7th house that is being transiting by Pluto at this time. My 7th House of Marriage, Relationships and Open Enemies is ruled by Sagittarius/Jupiter.

    To the bloggers that had questions about moving on with their lives and attending close relatives weddings, I say to them do not let anyone steal your joy. You don’t want to later regret and say: should of, could of, would of. Go to the wedding and enjoy yourself. Be happy for your loved ones tieing the knot and hope they won’t end in divorce!

    As for the blogger who didn’t know if they should leave or not? If your current situation is causing any stress to your life, I would say leave and start over. As a Capricorn, getting angry is not a good thing for us. It blocks us from getting what we want. Family members can sometimes be a real drag. You have to get away from them sometime. But the decision is yours and you know best.

    For the Capricorn born on December 22nd, yes you are a Capricorn. Isn’t that wonderful? I bet you have some Sagittarius in your personality.:)

    I hope that Capricorns during this transit will experience much happiness, good health and prosperity. Because that is exactly what I intend to do!

  10. My natal chart:
    11 Sun Capricorn, 12th house
    16 Moon Aquarius, 1st house
    5 Mercury Capricorn, 12th house
    5 Neptune Capricorn, 12th house
    21 Ascendant Capricorn

    The past couple years have been a roller coaster for me and yet, I’ve had some of the most insightful experiences I’ve had to date. But after all of that, April 3, 2013 is when Pluto hits my natal sun and I’m about ready to go into hibernation until after Pluto hits my Ascendant at 21 degrees in Capricorn.

    Personally for me, 2012 has been super intense with Neptune moving from Aquarius into Pisces in my 1st house. It was like the framework in which I viewed the world for so many years all came crashing down at once. It was all worth it though, I’ve learned so much.

    I suppose the most valuable lesson I have learned from all of this is that life is more about investing in the process, not the outcome and to enjoy the ride while you’re here. As cliche as all of that sounds, I finally “get it.”

  11. I experienced a very intense, encompassing, cosmically “right” (which then became heartbreaking, soul-shaking, and life changing) event during this transition (just over 3 months ago) , and I hope with every cell in my body that that was the worst of it, and from here on it it is just going to be about positive transformations and learning to become a better person. I wish all of you positive changes during this time. If you also happen to experience struggle, my heart is with you.

  12. So, I was born on 25 December, 1993 at 8 am, how strong is the effect, this october?

  13. I want to look at charts of people that have sun in 12th like mine, or ruler of 7th…how do I search for these? I think Jodie’s is in her 11 and rules her 8th?

    • Solar Fire does chart searches for planet in house. We are going to do up some pages with planets in houses but I think Marina is starting with Pluto at the moment.

      • I took a peek at the celebrities you listed…so far the ‘closest’ to my chart is heidi fleiss lol…(as far as sun rulership of 7th) Her sun is in 11th though…
        A quick look at her life at the moment I didn’t find much, other than an article from 2011. I find her gross. lol
        I guess I am just curious to find info on pluto moving in on the sun being the 7th ruler.
        Pluto transit over my neptune and then merc were very intense, and transits to my sun have traditionally not been very awesome. There is jupiter trine (which is ruler of MC so that seems good…) but also the moon opposition.

  14. Pluto is transitting my sun/south node conjunction and progressed MC, I am trying to google some inspiration about the changes I am confronting ( meanwhile prgressed sun shifts to pisces) I feel new energy and awareness, Finishing a 19 year period as full time artist off and getting 49 (7×7 real soon now) with One euro left on my account i wonder how to focus my energy: Just Ambitious for all my heart wishes against all fears and current crisis? I feel like with drawing ( pluto transitting 12th house so here I am, swinging in my hammock visiting darkstar astrology from a city attick, thanks for this space! Jane

    • Jane, that sounds like a wonderful transition.Do you ever play with the cards–tarot? you might explore pulling some cards for inspiration too. To clarify what the progression is bringing your way. You could look at opportunities, obstacles, blocks to growth/shadow and transformation.

      I’m intrigued by a sun conjunct south node in cap. I’m a sun in cap conjunct jupiter (trailing close behind north node almost conjunction). Pluto’s transiting me too.

      Reading your post made me think of my own transitions w/ pluto and for some reason, made me consider the tarot (which i work with) as a way to explore the transits. Perhaps give it a try?


    • Hi Jane

      My heart goes to you. That’s exciting to hear you are feeling the new energy and awareness :-). Just remember no matter what astrological alignment you are facing the idea is to have trust and faith that abundance is your true nature. All will fall in place no matter what your mind thinks you have right now. It’s all about letting go of the past preconceptions and believing in who you truly are from your heart and soul. It means you don’t need to chase your hearts desires or be ambitious about it…it’s all already there. Believe it, deserve it, embrace it…it’s all there :-). Much blessings to you.

  15. i am going through this transit so,yeah,it’s pretty much intense although i am only 16 now,lol. My sun is in 12th house capricorn.

    • At least you get this out of the way early, one way to look at it. My 11 year old girl had Pluto opposite her Sun for age 9 and 10, very tough for her. But as I kept telling her, it get’s better from here!

      • Tell her it is lucky to have pluto opposition in early age as she will not face that anymore in her life.

  16. Jamie, could you resurrect this one in the New Year as Pluto gears up to cross into the 3rd decan of Capricorn? Im mostly interested in how it may play out for JeffBezos.

  17. How do you see Pluto/Saturn conjunction at 12 January 2020?
    In my personal chart Pluto/Saturn transit will conjunct my Sun at 21.55 degree and Mercury 23.53 degree.
    Capricorn Sun rules my 4th house and is at cups of my 9th house.
    Pluto rules intercepted 6th house and is in my 5th house. Saturn rules 8 and 9th house. My ascendant is Gemini.
    I am planing to relocate to far away country for work but I have some health issues and I am a bit worried if this transit should be considered as positive or..?
