Pluto Square Sun Transit

Pluto Square Sun TransitPluto square Sun transit means you are in for a test of your strength and character for a year or more. The Sun represents your sense of self, authority, and power. The challenging square aspect from Pluto brings extreme forces in the form of other people and circumstances which means you have to really know who you are and stand up and be counted.

This can be a time of crisis or breakdown as Pluto totally transforms your ego, identity, and life direction. Pluto is basically throwing down a challenge so that you master your own personal power. Pluto can be ruthless in its effect so it can make you ruthless in achieving your goals.

If you have been too submissive in the past, learning to be ruthless is a good thing. You will learn to stand up for yourself but you must also find a balance. Being too ruthless when the opposition gets tough is not always the best option. Once you have gained a little more power then it might be best to leave it at that or compromise to wind a win-win outcome.

Power conflicts are common with this transit and these can be not only with authority figures like the law and bosses but also in personal relationships. The tests presented by Pluto can come through difficulties with authorities, relationships breakdown, loss of employment, accusations, and attacks on your personal integrity and health problems. Facing any challenges by not backing down can lead to great achievements, whether it be simply staying alive or total power and world domination.

This is likely to be a busy even if stressful time, but looking back you will see that it helped you understand yourself and what you want in life. The re-birthing process can give you a healthier ego, stronger willpower, and self-assertiveness which enables you to attain your goals with a new sense of vitality and enthusiasm.

  1. For the last almost two years I have had Pluto opposing my Saturn and squaring my Neptune. If that wasn’t bad enough I also had Uranus squaring Pluto and sestiquadron my Moon. I am surprised I am still alive, having been suicidal the whole time. I now have health problems. Coming up in 2013 and 2014 I have Pluto squaring my Sun. My Sun is in my 12th house so I am pretty well convinced I will die of a heart attack or a member of my family will die of a heart attack or I will end up in a mental institution again when I just got out of one. I wish someone could help me.

    • you can indeed help yourself. somethings are inevitable and the charts do seem to indicate things of
      what may or could happen. but you have the power and not the stars to realize incidents of life.
      do you really think the universe would be that brutal to let you know what may come in future time
      only so you live your life in fear and misery?

      i see strong negative aspects in my natal/transit, but i feel as if “it” is trying to challenge me to see how
      i would handle this. i have a choice to live depressed or nurture my powers strong enough to live it out.
      you attract your fears so let go and replace it with true sense of optimism. the kind of optimism – being prepared, not taken granted of, and with acceptance that is. not just bullshitting yourself.

      wishing you the best 🙂

      • Thank you for your kind response. To answer your question, the universe is impartial. It is not pro or con anyone. It’s the same with the planets. They don’t care. So, yes, I do believe the planets, not the universe, will tell us about nasty cycles that could end our lives. Ever gone to an astrologer and been told a family member was going to die in eight months? I have and she did die. Imagine the transits you’d be getting if you got Cancer or Aids? Not pleasant. Not one of us is guaranteed a specific time on earth and we all go in different ways. My quandry is that I believe God created the heavens and the earth and that includes the planets. Rather than believe God is out to get me or that I have bad karma, I choose to believe that God doesn’t want any person to suffer needlessly. That’s why people commit suicide and I don’t believe that is wrong. There is only so much agony a person can take. That’s why, as a Canadian, I am happy that the physician assisted suicide laws for terminally ill people are up for change. We will put our animals down when they are suffering, but human beings have to suffer it out till the very last minute and lose their dignity. This is not what God intends.

    • Gemini here. Sun in 12th, with sweetie pie company like Jupiter and Venus, nn, mercury. . . . All directly squaring Pluto, mars, moon, AND Uranus. . . . Which are all in direct opposition to Saturn, chiron and Ceres, all clumped up in the tenth house, for god and everyone to see, like a movie. (Hello?) . . . So first thing will say is, no whining, mister ; ) . I’m also a woman. . . Sober and sane as a juddge to boot. Big sigh.

      Advice? Under the circumstances I will take a stab. I think insanity stems from one of two things: either a deep wound, unattended, reasoned into a dark box to be “let go of” instead of given attention, resolved and healed. . . Scar worn, to remember and never forget. . . . Or we are unwilling to see realistically the part we choose to play in our own dramas, and so drama escalates in order to get attention, etc etc. Either we choose to stay in unhealthy environs from fear, or we more directly bring negativity to us by behavior.

      Solution? Well, first, if you are a victim, walk away. Get out, whatever way you can find, or make a way. Any way, as long as you hurt no one. A good test of playing the victim role is if you have the ability to project how others might feel to yours actions (I mean this as a general area of empathy you have strength in). If empathy is not your strong suit, you are likely challenged with the difficult and often uncomfortable task to the ego, of facing facts, realities, truths, others as well as your own. I you are the latter type, find a GOOD therapist, to help you get real with yourself. . . . And look forward to a good laugh session cuz if you make it out of the Labrynth alive, you will have learned and found great joy in laughing at yourself,. . And the rest of us too.

      Good luck!

      Ruby.

      • Yes, “whining” and “you’re just trying to get sympathy or attention” are pretty much what I get from people under this transit. Also, if I fall and hurt myself people have said, “Are you going to live?” or “You are just trying to prove to people that you are hurt,” which is cruel and disrespecful to the suffering person. If you would scroll up to what Julie said about her best friend committing suicide when he or she had Pluto square their Sun and Moon in 8 degrees of Aries, you would see this is no laughing matter.
        Some transits kill. My mother died under a Saturn square Sun transit. If we don’t have kindness respect and compassion for each other, then what do we have?

        • Its is very complicated thing with Pluto friend, you must fight but steel stay humble .i had this transit recently,you will find this tips useful:

          http://www.lynnkoiner.com/astrology-articles/survival-tips-for-the-pluto-

          Remember this ” With Pluto, they are holding a rubber band and whoever releases first, zaps the other! Whoever holds on the longest, gets zapped by Pluto…and the rubber band. The guideline here is to let go before you get zapped!! Let go before something complicates your life!”

          It is so true !!!!

          Wish you all the best.

  2. I am definitely going a through a battle in my life as a whole. I got laid-off 3 years ago when i was 8 mos preggers. Now my son is 3 yrs old and I have not been able to get back on my feet. I am unemployed and CANNOT find work. A single mom of four. I literally am living day to day I am very uncomfortable. I fight depression daily. November 2013 is a long time from now. I am under a lot of pressure. But things have to go through a pressure process to get the true blessing. olives to olive oil, grapes to fine wine and coal to diamonds. I am so excited to see what the “pressure process” creates out of me. xoxo

    • So, we’re both 1st decans in Libra. I think that we’ve faced the worst part of it. Best of luck to you and your children.

  3. Hi there.. i am 23 year old. even i belong to 1st decan libra. i did learn alot of precious lesson during this phase. i never gave up. but since last few months each day was like hell..
    i dont know when will the good times comes for us. tired of fighting. but i am so proud to be a 1st decan libra.
    we are the best among all other signs..
    kudos to all 1st decan libras!!!

    and a special msg for the single mother with 3 kids, hats off to dear!!! god bless…

  4. Thanks for that explanation. It all makes a lot of sense. My wife first became ill in 2008 shortly after our first child, eventually leading to MS by 2010 shortly after our second. In conjunction with this I was placed squarely under work pressure at a company who eventually folded in 2011. My parents have also separated during this time and my grandparents and a number of other blood relatives have died.

    Apart from that it’s fine! I haven’t coped terribly well with it all and have been placed under intense scrutiny and harsh judgement by so many people.

    It’s taught me that no matter what is happening, I must try and control my emotions (Aries moon you see). It’s a process that is ongoing as I desperately try and rebuild my shattered home life and professional career. I have setbacks and hope that people will forgive these in time, though I understand that it has to be earned.

    As for my own esoteric studies, I really think I have troughed now (0’55” Libra). I’ve just escaped redundancy at my new company, though I remain vigilant and hope that my marriage can begin to enjoy a more stable footing. I think this rebuilding is a slow process but will culminate with the announcement of a possible cure for MS in April 2013 (a bold prediction for a very amateur psychic).

  5. With the retrogrades and the directs that have happened, I am on noe last go around. September and I am finally out of the woods. I lost two jobs, got two STD’s, one of which took so long to figure out it created a horrible pH imbalance that took months to sort out. Then I came back from India with a parasitic infection in my liver. Which caused numerour other side effects. My business that I started has been like having a new born baby and then some and now its hanging by a thread after investing over 100k. I have no income. I am going broke. My mnew man deserted me and my brother just died of an overdose at 27. I can barely breathe!!!

  6. I’m a 10/5 Libra–just starting to get the paranoia of this transit. And the hi blood pressure! but I’m 67 and feel a certain detachment from it. but what about the Libra’s born during this transit–will they face “transformation” their whole lives?

  7. First decan aries…I am being called to tell the whoe truth and be radically honest with myself and the people in my life. Feel like I am losing it all again or could. Wanting to move forward in living situation and calling but finding insecurity instead of clarity. As an Aries I usually jump first then ask questions. This time trying to do it differently. Does any one selly patience?

  8. My birth date is 31st March, 9:10 am, I am 2n deccan going by this but the major changes am going through make me believe that I am 1st deccan..each day going like hell since the last 8-9 months..healing from the breakup from the first fulll scale relationship is taking a toll..don’t think am ever recovering.. I need help!!! :((

    • I’m 1st decan Aries,26th March, and unless something really nasty is round the corner I feel as though I’m through the worst of this transit.(People have stopped saying “god,you’ve had a bucketful”) The 2nd decan Aries I know have been getting it tough since last year.
      Hang in there!

      • I’ve had a couple of days lately where I have just felt sooooo positive and upbeat (after what seems a lifetime of being beaten down.)
        Last Wednesday I was on top of the world – felt unbeatable, I just KNEW it was the day I was going to start turning it all around.
        And I failed and things are as depressing as ever.
        Probably being an Aries makes it worse – I get so enthusiastic and then beat myself up so bad when I fail again.
        I think I have now officially stopped trying to tape my life back together. Too shattered. Too broken. Too bad.

  9. I want to know when all this is ending n if it’s ending ever…don’t think moving on after the first relationship ESP when it’s sort of forced upon u seems impossible n feels am scarred for life..i think am a first decan, born on 31 st march…hate to rise up everyday, just want it all to end if it can’t get better..

    • I’m a first decan as well. I had Business go under and was turned on by the people who I brought up and trained. This was an interesting article because I did become RUTHLESS. I got and am at a point where if someone doesn’t like for being who I am then I DONT CARE. There is refuge and gold at the end of the rainbow. There were some VERY trying times and I felt ALL alone some days. I feel GREAT now though. I had a couple week stretch that might have been as hard emotionally as I’ve dealt with. Hang on and do what you have to do to make yourself feel better. Sign up for a class you’ve always wanted to do but have been afraid. This transit had DESTROYED my timidity and fear of trying things because of the dreaded what will other people think. Embrace your ruthlessness. Embrace the freedom that comes when your not any longer afraid to die. LIVE YOUR DREAMS

    • If you are born on March 31st as I am, then you are a second decanate Aries, not a first decanate Aries. What decanate you are does not matter with a Pluto square Sun transit. Having experienced true hell for the last three years with a Pluto square Saturn and Pluto square Neptune transit, I am about to go into Pluto square Sun. This is nasty business; the judgments, the disrespect, the criticism, having your career go down the toilet, health problems, difficulty in relationships, just everything fucking up on you. It tears away your soul. These transits do not go on forever. They can’t. The average transit is two years, three years tops. You can recover all you have lost. The trick is to get through it. If the Pluto square Sun transit doesn’t kill you, and it has killed some people, then you will get out of it to better times.If not,you don’t have to worry about it anymore. Do not believe people who tell you this is karma from a previous life. There is no such thing as reincarnation and even if there were you would have to pay for your bad deeds at the end of that lifetime, not this one. Things do not get carried over. Do the best you can with it for as long as you can.

      • This is nasty business; the judgments, the disrespect, the criticism, having your career go down the toilet, health problems, difficulty in relationships, just everything fucking up on you. It tears away your soul.

        I experienced all but the health problems.

        • Well it certainly is gratifying to read that other people have been through this hell too. Yes, we must all honour Pluto’s lessons but when Pluto does not honour us, as in this transit, it is hell and there are no lessons to learn, except to endure. Pluto turns us into somebody we are not, evident from all our losses.
          We can’t function on a normal plane. Nobody wants to live a life like that. That is not living as we should. That is destruction of our souls. Some people think Aries are impatient. Try living for years as a soulless person and see how quickly you want it to end. We are in pain, some of us suicidal. Of course we want it to end as quickly as possible. My God! Who wouldn’t?
          We all experience this transit in different ways. No one can judge what we are going through. With a square, Pluto is the destroyer. With a trine, Pluto is the creator. It’s as simple as that. Get out of the squares and you get your life back. There is no lesson here; no bad karma to serve out, no one’s fault, just, unfortunately, shit transits which makes me wonder about God and what He is up to with some of us. He created the planets, not us. It’s very cruel. All we can do is press through it; don’t take any crap from people which means you will be fighting with people a lot, but do it to save your soul and hold on for something better. Do the things you love if you have the energy. These transits do end. They can’t go on forever. Two years, maybe three years tops. Most of all, be kind to yourself and love yourself. This is not your fault.

  10. Hahahaha Patience? Aries?? Not easy. March 30 Bd for me so I know.
    Yes – radically honest with self (Self). Me too-see this as being a vital part of the process so that one can form an honest new identity – perhaps the new is just Acceptance of the true? This is very freeing – and with the transiting Uranus in Aries component this is so possible. And Yes – insecurity instead of clarity – because the process of becoming honest with self is taking it all apart before it gets put back together and this creates an instability of sorts – but the end goal and prize is clarity and again, acceptance (how wonderful!). I believe as Jamie says that in retrospect everything will be much clearer. I have exact square to Sun (again) end of Jan and July of 2013. I am walking a lot and trying to just take things One Day at a Time. Greatest fear is losing my elderly mother. Reading a lot about Pluto (Death) now. Feeling the pressure – determined to find a release pressure valve. DEEP BREATHING is hugely helpful.

  11. I think people are way too harsh with the ‘impatient aries’ thing.

    They need to understand (and so do we!!) that we do more stuff in one day than most signs could fit into a week.
    When you live your life pedal to the metal 24/7 it is hard to understand why the rest of the world (and certain planets) move so slowly.
    I wonder if that is why these transits seem never ending to us.

  12. ***that would be ‘pedal to the metal’ compared to other signs – it’s just normal speed for us.

    Oh never mind, if you need it explained you’re going too slow!

  13. I am a second deconate Aries, born March 31. I have lived through the last three years of Pluto opposite my Saturn and square my Neptune, Uranus opposite Neptune, Uranus square Saturn, and Uranus sestiquadrat my Moon. It has been a ghastly experience with a setback to my career in writing and art. I was also placed in a mental institution and had to have shock treatments. This transit is just waning now and taking a long time to do it. I am so very tired and it’s an effort to do anything. I feel disrespected and not heard. I feel as if I am being treated like a child. I was suicidal during that time but was afraid to kill myself unless I botched it and was in even worse shape. I almost lost my house and was almost placed in a group home it got so bad. I was left with health problems and now have to take blood thinners as I had two blood clots; one a superficial one, and the other, in a deep vein that put me in the hospital on oxygen because the clot went to my lung.I am amazed I am still alive.
    I have partially regained my career but nobody seems to pay attention to my poetry and art anymore. Coming up in 2013 and 2014 I have Pluto square my Sun. As if I haven’t been through enough.
    I don’t know what to expect, except more of the same, only maybe not as relentless. I am concerned about my health and the position Pluto is in with my chart would be a “crisis of the heart” which could be a heart attack or somebody I know, usually a male, having a heart attack. I know I am in for serious power trips and an attack against my character which I have already had in spades. I am concerned I might not be able to make it through to 2015 when I will have Pluto sextile my Moon, which isn’t a strong transit, but much better than what I have been through. I have enormous compassion for anybody encountering or about to encounter Pluto square Sun. All we can do is push through and do the best we can with it and realize this is not our fault; it’s what the transits are doing, over which we have no control. I do not believe this is a karmic situation because I believe we get our rewards and punishments in this lifetime, not in the next. God Bless all and good luck with it.

    • I can’t get my head around the karma thing either.
      It sounds like something people say to explain away all the bad stuff that happens when no one can work out what the hell you did to deserve it.

      Oh, I see – I was Stalin in my last life so I am bought back and punished with a bunch of Pluto squares……that’ll teach me.

      If you are bad, doesn’t it make sense to punish you at the time so you learn the consequences of your actions?

      To be fair to Pluto – if we prepared properly for his squares (by winning the lottery and retiring to a desert island with our loved one) perhaps they would not hit us so hard?

  14. You just said the magic words. If life is, indeed, stages of personal growth and spiritual enlightenment, along with the growth of our soul which also benefits the growth of the world soul, what good are having lessons if they are not learned in this lifetime? I have always subscribed to the belief that life is a series of lessons and stages of personal and spiritual growth, but since the Pluto squares hit me that has gone down the crapper. I never did believe in reincarnation; it’s too complicated to get a group of souls together to work out their karma when we are all different ages when we die and in all stages of spiritual growth. People lean towards the belief that they occupied lofty positions in their previous lifetime, which is ridiculous. Thousands of years from now when we are hit by a comet or another planet and the world is destroyed, will it make any difference about our lessons, or even what we have left for the world because there will be no world left? Life is now until we die and that’s it. It’s all we are allowed to know for sure.

  15. Do second decanate Aries have much more to suffer…as I am 31st march born am between decanate 1 and 2..I fail to understand what to expect now as it is..2012 has been truly nerve breaking for me and I have had enough..I might just break now it feels…

    • It does not matter what decanate you are when you are experiencing Pluto square Sun. No one decanate gets the most misery. It depends upon what other transits are in operation and there will always be some positive ones. Having been through Pluto, Neptune and Uranus squares, and oppositions to Saturn for the last few years, I felt like I would not make it through, but I did. March 31st is second decanate. Best thing to do is see an astrologer and find out what else is going on at the same time as your Pluto square Sun. There will also be echoes of these transits; when they appear to have waned, then they will come back at you but they will eventually fade out.

  16. I want to believe am 1st decanate, born on 31st march and this transits gets bttr off me in 2013..dint think I can take anymore of it..

    • It’s a very difficult transit, no doubt about it, and I am about to experience it myself in January of 2013 for two years. March 31, the day of my birthday and yours, is second decanate. We don’t get an easier or heavier experience with this transit because of our decanate. Again, if you feel that astrology is providing a good explanation for what you are going through, seek out an astrologer to find our what else is going on and when the transits will wane. It’s important to know what else is going on; it may help your outlook.

  17. Mostly everybody writes that 31st march is the second half of first decanate and the tough times am going through cant get any worse..want to believe it cant get worse next year, it has to get better or I am totally done…I knw nobody can help me except myself but I ve gvn up now..first breakup has broken me up totally…I feel and say to myself that such things happen to ppl so many times but nothing matters in the end..am as ruined as it can be..

    • I totally identify with you on this as I have had Pluto and Uranus squares for the last two years, had absolutely no energy, was suicidal, had no appetite, couldn’t sleep, and just didn’t want to live. I crawled through each day while I watched my life being bashed to bits. I endured a total washout with everything going down the drain; career, relationships with family, and friends. I didn’t feel alive, felt invisible, didn’t feel heard or respected and the arguments and judgments placed upon me were stultifying and soul battering. I have Pluto square Sun coming up in 2013 and I just don’t know what is going to happen to me; I am very worried and scared about it. It is a living hell, truly. These transits usually last two years with an echo to them. They eventually do wane but they seem to take a long time doing it. You must have some good transits in there too. We all do, it’s just that this Pluto stuff is so overpowering. I just wish I had an answer. These transits should be happening to Clifford Olson and Charles Manson, not us.

  18. Mostly everybody writes that 31st march is the second half of first decanate..want to believe it cant get worse next year, it has to get better or I am totally done…I knw nobody can help me except but I ve gvn up now..first breakup has broken me up totally…I feel and say to myself that such things happen to ppl so many times but nothing matters in the end..am as ruined as it can be..

  19. One of my friends has the uranus-pluto pluto square right on her Aries moon at the moment. The same square is also bang on her boyfriend’s sun in Libra. They’ve just moved in together and talk about marrying and having kids. The transits are tearing something apart all right: past negative relationship experiences for both them. And giving them the urge to actually do something they really want to do (live together), instead of endlessly thinking about it!
    I know a lot of people with sun/moon in cardinal signs that move in together/marry/have kids with these transits. I also know of many people that started therapy with so-called ‘hard pluto’ transits, myself included. It was a unique experience of getting rid of a lot of unnesessary burdens and facing ghosts from the past, purged in pluto’s fire. I’m not saying it’s easy or delightful. But I cannot ignore the benefits, it’s as simple as that.
    I’m March 31st too, so I’m not done with this either. I’ve had a good taste of this square on my Sun this spring, and the next two years are full of pluto/uranus and saturn transits. What I really think is that any, any transit can bring clarity and healing if we choose to go with it, especially amidst the pain, and not turn our heads the other way.
    Pluto transits in particular are too powerful to be wasted on wishing they were not there. There’s too much strength, too much transformation available to let it slip through our fingers without taking ourselves to the next level. At least that’s how I see it right now.

    • Well,okay. Thanks for that. Here’s the thing, though. As well the difficult squares we all have good transits in there as well and this is what produces the positive transformation. You have a sextile or a trine with a couple of other planets and that balances out the Pluto squares. But if the Pluto squares are so heavy that they overshadow the good stuff,then you are in trouble. This is what happened to me. I had Pluto trine Venus in 2009/10, which is as good as you are ever going to get; it only comes along every 84 years, but I also had Pluto, Saturn, and Uranus squares which completely overshadowed the trine, so I incurred a major setback in all areas of my life. There are recovery transits and I believe I am in them now; having recovered some of what I lost, but those three years were wasted. So, if you have a Pluto square with something to balance it out so that it produces a positive transformation, great, but if you don’t,then you are in for a challenge. Positive attitude is the key,though. By focusing on doing what you love you will have a far easier time. It just depends upon whether or not you have the actual energy to do it.

      • I am having a hard time dealing with the Pluto/Saturn/Uranus “transits” because I had already gotten rid of the bad stuff and was trying to rebuild my life starting from scratch…. I had nothing and no one, just me.
        And then got sideswiped by these bully transits. Why?
        I thought I was just starting to get things together and suddenly instead of a psycho slamming my head into a wall, it’s a bunch of planets.
        The “recovery transits” would want to be pretty amazing to make up for the astro-battering.

        • There seems no apparent reasons for these bashing Pluto squares. I asked my astrologer about this and he said it wasn’t my fault and it was just what was going on up there. The “just what was going on up there” explanation didn’t satisfy me. I have now gone on to blaming God for this; He created the Heavens and the Earth and the planets. Don’t let these squares destroy your precious life. Do the best you can, express your anger when you are mad and don’t let anybody tell you are wrong for feeling the way you do. These transits suck! Nobody can know unless they have been through them themselves. I take the aggressive approach and just plow through them.

          • See, this is it about us humans, always searching for someone to blame, whether it’s the planets, my liar ex, my unappreciative friends or the incompetent government. No, it’s actually all inside us. The fear, the anger, the desperation, the spite, everything. As is the bliss, joy, love and compassion. And unless we honestly take responsibility for ourselves and deal with what is, I’m sorry, but there will be no such thing as a ‘good’ transit that you can actually feel in your bones as good. I’ve had loads of Jupiter transits when I was depressed, and thought the astrologers where nuts being excited with Jupiter like this. And I’ve got loads of examples like that, for a really long time.
            Yes, by all means, get the anger out, in a safe way, and THEN find some way to do (or keep going with) inner work. There is no such thing as ‘I’m done with this, now I’m expecting something good’ in life, there is always something that’s coming next. What are you going to do, stay put and complain about the injustice? As I said above, these ‘horrendous’ transits have absolutely no reason at all to be horrendous, WE make them be whatever we THINK they are. They seem to work miracles for some people and send others to the darkest pits of hell. But the planets don’t do anything, they’re just on their journey indicating what kind of time has come. Circumstances are never going to be perfect, there is no ‘perfect time’ to do anything. Pluto trines (‘good transit’) can be just as devasting as squares; and squares can be just as excilarating as trines. So unless we get moving to find the path that can help us throw away the past s$%^ and grow into what our soul needs to evolve, we can point the finger as much as we like at planetary ‘baddies’… but but nothing will come out of it and no real transformation will ever happen. I really see no point in judging the planets in the sky for what they’re ‘doing to us’. They’re not ‘doing’ anything, they travel in the universe, that’s what planets DO! It’s our own choice how we view things and if we choose to give up our power and say well, it’s ‘their’ fault. And even when it actually is, where does that take you? What are you going to do, lay down and die because ‘good things happen to bad people and not the other way round’? I’m sorry, and no offence really, but I don’t see any productive side to this attitude. We all have our own stuff to take care of in this life. Comparing it with what happens to others won’t do the trick, honestly getting to know and accepting who we are, and moving on to share our light, might as well.

          • Can you please send that explanation to my bank manager and tell him it will all be over soon if he just adopts a positive attitude!

            Seems a bit rough to blame God – poor guy seems to cop it for everything.
            Blame me – everything else seems to be my fault…hence the Pluto punishment.

            ***For longest time I was afraid to ask Jamie or Marina for a reading because I thought I must be such an awful person (because of the awful things happening in my life) that they would say “sorry but we just can’t do a reading for such a bad person.”

            • **Sorry – my reply was to Genine.

              Ended up in the wrong place somehow!

            • Oh,dear. This is not your fault. You are not to blame. One of my astrologers gave up on me; said she couldn’t cope with the Saturn heaviness. I did not create these transits. If I had so called “free will” as God says, I would never have created these transits. I do not think God is a poor guy. Ever read the bible? He gets pissed off at everything; wipes out entire populations of people because they are breaking His commandments. Ever read the story of Noah’s ark? He got pissed off with the entire human race and wiped them off the face of the earth except for Noah and his family, the birds and the animals. How could all those people, birds and animals fit into a single arc? Think about it. He enters into a contest with Satan over Job because of His ego to see who Job will favour. This is immature stuff. The old testament is particularly bad; children should be stoned to death because they don’t obey their parents?
              In the bible God does reward the faithful but we are faithful and He is not rewarding us so something is wrong. I have so many problems over God and the bible that I have to decided to become a Buddhist. I will be focusing on my inner self and attaining Nirvana rather than feeling guilty as sin for Jesus hanging on the cross and trying to please Him.
              and I would disagree with Kacey; yes there is a perfect time to do things. I’ve had some wonderful transits that have allowed me to really boost my career and love life. I am not just sitting there and blaming the planets either. I get up,I work on my novel all day, I houseclean, I paint, I entertain my friends and I am about to publish a fiction book, my first one, and this the worst time astrologically to do this but I do it. I am tired as hell but I do it. I blame God; I am allowed to, but I am not stuck over it. I get pissed off and do things. That’s the answer, besides finding out what else is going on in your chart that is positive, and there are always positive transits along with the bad. Then just plow through and do it. Blame whoever you want, get mad at whoever you want; it’s your right if you feel you are being stomped on, but just do it. I am innocent. So are you.
              And don’t believe that Adam and Eve story; it’s just a story about higher levels of consciousness. And don’t feel guilty; don’t buy into that Christian crap. We are not sinners and we are not guilty. We are just humans doing the best we can.

  20. Hey there. I would like to have some explanations in certain aspects of my natal chart as it’s few years that I’m in a bad mood/energy situation. Never happy, no will, anger, no forces to express my emotions (destructive and constructive ones), so much tansion, no real self, intolerance, envy, no satisfaction (even though I have had incredible experiences in the last years). But I hide everything from people and the world with a Libra rising that makes my surface apparently really balanced and “chilled”. It would be nice to get few tips from somebody:

    LEO SUN square TAURUS MOON
    LEO SUN square SCORPIO PLUTO
    TAURUS MOON opposite SCORPIO PLUTO

    Sun is in the X house, Pluto in the I, Moon in the IX, and it is a T-apex with the sun at the top.

    Moreover a tempested venus:

    Venus in Gemini (in IX house) opposite, Saturn and Uranus in SAGITTARIUS (III house)
    Venus opposite NEPTUNE in Capricorn (IV house)

    If somebody would like to give me few tips I would be glad, it’s three years I’m trying to change myself in what I feel I really am, but I can’t see any real change in my person.

    Thanks, have a good day/night

    me

    • Hello me. I’m, not an astrologer but here goes. You obviously have some very challenging aspects in your chart. The best thing I can think of when I am angry or down and can’t get in touch with myself is that I write out these Morning Pages. I even write down entire conversations I wish to have with people. I write down exactly what I think and what I feel. I read them over and over to see if I am making any progress. It really gets rid of a lot of the pent up emotions. Read Simple Abundance. It will change your whole way of thinking. People you love and trust, share what you write with them so they could understand where you are really coming from. If you do that you will really get in touch with yourself. It works for me. Good luck with it!

  21. I was born on the 26th of March so I’m guessing I’m first deconate. Lol, sorry for sounding like an idiot but I’m new at these things so I’d really appreciate it if someone could please explain it more in detail about what this thing about Pluto squaring up my Sun is about? Thankyouuu.

    • Dear Grblegrble:

      If you are really concerned about this Pluto square Sun transit then read the explanation given above by Jamie. It’s pretty accurate. It needs to be said that there will be other transits operating in your chart besides Pluto square Sun which could produce a positive effect but then there are transits that could produce a negative effect. Best thing to do is to consult a reputable astrologer who will give you an in-depth reading based on your birth date and exact birth time, not these half-assed astrologers in the newspaper. They are too general. It’s best to find out what you are dealing with so you can develop a plan. Pluto square Sun is a challenge, absolutely. It’s not an easy transit and the more help you get working your way through it with a positive state of mind, the easier it will be. Good luck with it!

      • Jamie will do a great job for you (when he is back up and online again!)
        It might sound a bit parochial to rap him on his own website, but seriously he is The Guy to go to for a no-nonsense interpretation of what is happening in your chart.

  22. It seems to me that Jamie has made an error according to my astrologer. The Pluto square Sun transit is a two year transit like all transits are. They are never more than two years; three years tops in waning. Jamie has calculated that each decanate has a five year transit with Pluto square Sun and they fall in different years. The transit is not about your decanate. It’s about your birth date, year, and birth time. I am about to go into the Pluto square Sun transit in January of 2013. In January of 2015 I will be experiencing Pluto sextile Moon. I would prefer to believe my own astrologer as it sounds far more positive.

  23. “To avoid having to shoot yourself in the head a few years later, the lesson here is not to abuse the power of Pluto.”
    I’ve read this post…well, I don’t know how many times; and every time I reach this line I start laughing like I’ve just seen it!
    Bless you guys! 🙂

  24. Really worried about this one, especially since it just entered my 6th. At the same time it is squaring my Sun it is also making an exact conjunction to my Jupiter. I am worried that this transit will affect my health, since it’s squaring my Sun from my 6th. Jupiter can only exacerbate the problem. 🙁

    • I think the worst thing I can do when I know that ‘bad’ transits are happening or about to is to be afraid. Death inevitably touches us all and I think one learns and grows most when challenging circumstances make us dig deep in order to overcome them and feel free. Almost everyone I’m around in this area I live in is just consumed with comfort and safety, never having anything in their lives happen unexpectedly and just do the same thing day after day after day….and model themselves after everyone else they see. I honest to God almost on a daily basis feel like I’m living around a bunch of robots.

      So I’d say, trust the Universe. Trust that whatever happens was supposed to happen. Trust the process even if it means a physical death. Everyone dies, unfortunately, most people are afraid to really live.

      • Well, Clytnjms, the purpose of a Pluto square is to make you afraid; after all,it is basically destroying everything you have built up for yourself and turning you into a negative person you are not and that is enough to scare a person shitless. How is that a positive transformation into your true self? If you want that you’ll need a Pluto trine. A Pluto square represents a huge setback in your life, one you have to live through in order to transform once again to the positive person you were before you went into it. That was your true self. Everyone experiences this transit in different ways. If you feel you are being pared down to your true self then you must have a nice big trine somewhere helping you out that some of us don’t have. The people in my life have the same challenges I do; they are not consumed with comfort and safety. They are trying to enjoy life and get the most out of it that they can. They want to do more than survive,they want to thrive, which is human. So,we have different transits here. We all do. What I am experiencing with this Pluto square is not my true self at all; my true self is being suppressed by this square until it passes. And yes,unfortunately, some of us have health problems under this transit and we die. There is nothing we can do about it. I wouldn’t trust the universe,though. The universe is impartial.I would trust myself. And if this is the plan of the universe then we don’t have to like it, which I don’t. That,I believe,is what is called free will.

        • If it was all free will then you’d be able to overcome or not allow a pluto square Sun transit happen in your life. EVERYONE has a shadow. Some people suppress theirs their entire life and scapegoat anyone that is symbolic of that which they haven’t integrated into their waking awareness. We are ALL a work in progress. Your either going forward or your going backward. When I first learned the guitar which I have a link to my online web site here, the times that I really thought I was terrible and wasn’t enjoying myself at all were the times my guitar teacher would say those are the times when I’m really growing and learning. I think ‘free will’ comes into play when during these hard pluto transits, you somehow someway stay in the positive or maybe possibly try something different to get you out of the rut the pluto square has put you in. From my experience, we grow most during trials and hardships. I think to somehow someway get to a point inside your self where your not afraid to suffer or feel pain will you be liberated from it. Fear is the biggest challenge and obstacle there is if you ask me. I think Pluto square Sun can REALLY get you in touch with your ‘claws’ and courage. It kind of pushes you to go REAL deep, especially when challenged by others who represent that pluto energy. I’ve had six or seven people come into my life which turned into intense power plays during this transit, and I was willing to do whatever it took to not allow them or anyone to mentally impede me any shape way or form,even it meant the dreaded what will other people say or think dynamic that most people I’m around live their entire lives in fear of. The fear of being talked negatively about of having God forbid someone not like you seems to paralyze damn near everyone I’m around. A friend to all is a friend to none. This pluto square Sun has made me not put up with little petty power play mind games that I used to for years and years from people. It’s allowed me to stand my ground and not worry if that meant that someone God forbid didn’t like me and would talk negatively about me. All I know is that I’m free from being pinned down by their thoughts and free from their negative manipulative power plays/games. I don’t think your supposed to like everyone around you or comes into your life. Some people I don’t like period. And that is ok if some people don’t like me either. It’s not the end of the world.

          • We have no choice about which transits hit us. After 67 years on this earth I have learned this. Free will is in how we handle our transits, not in choosing them. Fear is a totally human response to situations that are likely to be not good for us or that we should use caution with or that are challenges. In some cases it saves our lives. The challenge is in overcoming fear, not getting rid of it. Every time I have had an opportunity for spiritual growth, it has been a challenge but I have enjoyed that challenge. I have not dreaded it. I have never cared what people said about me or if they don’t like me. Most people are idiots on this planet anyway. I like myself and that’s all that counts. So bring on the power plays. It’s not like I haven’t had them for the last three years anyway. I happen to like my shadow; it’s got some great stuff. I am quite familiar with it now. See how different we all are? And thank God for that!

            • How true! The point I am trying to make, and I understand that my transits are not the same as anybody else’s is that when these squares hit me I am transformed into somebody I do not want to be; who can’t do anything much, just lie there and survive until these squares are over with, then I can transform back into the person I used to be and move on. It’s a complete waste of my years and I learn nothing from it,only how to survive, which isn’t much of a lesson when I could be learning so many more great things. It’s very sad to have to go through it.

    • I hear you. I have the same problem. Because of the position of the planets in my chart, my astrologer has me wondering if I will have a major heart attack or somebody in my family will have a major heart attack. It’s scary business. All you can do is check with your doctor to make sure you are in good health and try to stay that way. Michael Douglas had this transit and survived throat cancer. Barbara Walters had this transit and survived heart problems. You don’t have to die under this transit,but if you do it is no fault of yours. All you can do is what I do; fight it for all you are worth. Do the things you love even if you are exhausted and don’t let anybody give you any crap. It is not your fault.

      • This is a very good article on the Shadow I thought you might find interesting. I think Pluto Square Sun can get you in touch with those long lost repressed emotions and experience and give them their proper place and integrate them during the transit. That is why I think that even the ‘bad’ transits have potential to become trines if the lesson is learned and integrated.

      • Hello to both of you and thank you for replying!
        I agree challenging aspects, limitations and difficulties in life are there to help us grow. Looking back at my life I wouldn’t say I would gladly go through those tough times again (and I had quite a bit of those already), but I can clearly see now how it helped me become who I am today.
        Somehow I differentiate between life challenges like losing a job, being on streets, divorce, etc. that can help you grow if you overcome those, from health challenges like having a deadly cancer. And that’s where our discussion turned to existential philosophy and view on life and death. Yes, worrying about dying is not helping you avoid it. But, not thinking about it completely besides being almost impossible, it is also not bringing anything good. Yes, we will all die and our time on earth is limited, but being aware of that should not stop us from living life, but help us live a more authentic life. We know we will die, but we do not know whether that will be in a few decades or a few hours. Knowing that you live according to your values helps ease that anxiety. I definitely still feel anxious thinking about these aspects, but having that helped me tell my husband that I love him today when he was getting on my nerves. Just because I never know when is my last day.

        P.S. I think this article should’ve mentioned Uranus as well. Uranus is currently conjunct Sun for Aries, which means Sun and Uranus together are squaring Pluto.

  25. Hi All,
    I been going through this on the opposite end. I’m 6 Libra Sun (b.9.29.73) with natal conj to Pluto and square to Saturn anyway and receiving pretty much the same Universal “bitch slap” from all those heavy hitters since we’re all early degrees in Cardinal signs. Yep, it’s been rough. Total grind of seemingly never-ending obstacles with a lot of instability peppered in and glad to hear I’m not the only one who felt like I was really “losing it” in more ways than one. But this too, shall pass. There were a lot of negative situations in my life that I really needed to stand up to and I was allowing them to stick around. Hence the purge. At times, life feels pretty empty and drained – I’m recovering in the midst of a bunch of groggy Neptune squares – yuck – & Good ole’ Saturn is still not done with me but I feel a lot clearer. I have wisened and matured.

    Remember, the Universe hates a void. Don’t compare yourself to others. Let go of what you know for sure needs to go and be open to the possibility of something surprising coming in.

    As you can see, this influence is affecting so many on the planet and some folks are really losing it w/ all these extreme crimes and freakouts, exposes etc. I think our Survival instincts cause us to tense up and want to hold on – increasing pain. It’s like a car crash – it’s the tense people that get hurt the worst where folks who relax into it fare better.

    The best thing is likely not to expect too much of yourself and try to just focus on the basics in front of you and good self-care. Sleep more if you can, take it easy, do yoga or Tai Chi, listen to beautiful music, adopt an animal, anything you can do for yourself to ease stress and definitely, take the opportunity change or let go of anything that’s not working.

    Never has there been a set of influences like this in our Lifetime. There are many people who have been wiped out, if not physically, financially or psychologically, then by literal weather! It IS rough weather but at least you have the heads up. So many folks do not even understand what is happening to them. Take comfort knowing you are in good company and if you’ve made it this far – you will likely never have something this harsh coming at you again.

    P.S. So many 3.31s on here! Clythnjms, my best friend is 3.31 and also a singer/songwriter with another successful business on the side. She also had her business partners turn on her and try to take everything. Luckily, they forced her hand, she stood her ground so they had no choice but to leave. Once they left, her business skyrocketed and over the last 2 years, she has had the ability to transform her life in amazing ways. I remember the day she called me so scared and beat down asking what to do. All I said was, “You are better off without them. Stand up and DO NOT EVER GIVE UP.” Well…She hung in and though I’m sure life is hectic with it’s pressures – she is glad she did not give up!!

    Love to everyone!

  26. I too am 3.31. This is the best response I have read up here to these battering Pluto squares. Absolutely right on. Thank you so much!

  27. I dont understand why aries people having such about time. I througth was only capricorn people.

    I am conjunct pluto transit alredy can feel the pain.

  28. This Pluto square has not only been affecting my sun at Libra 8, but also my Black Moon Lilith at Libra 7. Both Sun and Lilith are in the 4th house. I’ve been experiencing this transit in a very intense and personal way.

    My now-husband left his ex-wife three months after he and I met, in late 2010. He’d been planning to do so anyway–she’s a diagnosed Type I bipolar, non-med-compliant. There were many problems in that marriage from the start, and hubby had gotten to a point where he actually began fearing for his life. She decided to focus on me as the problem, rather than her own pathological behavior, as the cause of her failed marriage.

    The ex-wife “poisoned the well” for hubby and I in our living situation, too. The neighbors (both alcoholics, sad to say) bought into ex-wife’s sob story and decided it was their job to punish *me* for the breakup of hubby’s marriage. It got so bad we had to call the law on the neighbor one evening and I was very close to taking out a restraining order on them. We moved last July after the male neighbor did something that was a frank threat to my safety, and the safety of my teenage stepdaughter–but thankfully we’ve landed in a very good place to live that meets our needs perfectly.

    There was Pluto+4th house Sun/Lilith material thrown at me in my job situation, too. I got a new job in a small, family-owned management office in June 2011 after being unemployed for six months prior. Three of my new coworkers decided it was their job to “punish” me because my supervisor hired me, instead of their friend whom they wanted my boss to hire.

    I felt as if I was under siege, with unmerited nastiness being thrown at me from all directions *and there was nowhere I could go to escape it.* The true irony is that *none of these things were my fault.* I felt as if I was being forced to pay the piper in recompense for other peoples’ bad behavior, bad decisions, and/or screw-ups. At times, I felt the pressure and injustice of these situations was beyond my ability to endure.

    I quit the terrible job back in May. Hubby and I had been struggling hard to clean up the financial mess from his prior marriage (ex-wife spent a lot of money which she had no means to pay back–she can’t hold a job–so hubby was left holding the bag). We were able recently to rework our budget *very carefully* so that I don’t have to work at all unless I want to. I’ve got so many things I want to do instead of working for money, and I am *ecstatic* that this has now become possible for me, after 30 years in the workforce.

    Thankfully it appears the worst is over. These challenges to my personal power have been like nothing I’ve ever experienced before in life. With that said, I do feel that all that’s happened with this transit in particular have helped me to become a stronger person and more “sovereign,” so to speak, in my personal power.

  29. March 31 here…..this transit has definatly changed the course in my life. I have had very positive affirmations along with the negative. I have come across manipulative behaviors in every one around me. There are times that I feel like I am being manipulative to others as well….I ended a six year relationship at the end of 2012, got into a new one that was extremely wishy washy and sexually manipulative, lost my job where my brother was my boss i.e. transiting pluto is in my third house square my sixth house sun., I had to move out of my house and into a cheaper living situation in the summer of 2013. I got into another manipulative relationship for the last five months. Im done with that and have realized that I’m not being forthright with myself about what I want. There are days where I feel like I am paralyzed with sadness, and days where I can’t wait for the next adventure…i.e. uranus conjuncting sun. I think uranus has the ability to push us forward out of old habits and create new ones that can be uplifting. I am not looking forward to pluto retrograding back over my sun this summer, but I know that if I am true to what I have learned so far, which is to go with my instincts and create a healthier lifestyle that I will survive the final pass to my sun without too much agony…*)…Its been one fuked up ride though, I will admit that….ALOT of animals dying around me too….I saw my friends cat get hit by a car, my friends kittens disappeared one nite, my roomates cat was stolen, and I witnessed a friends dog die….I guess that would be sixth house sun too….Anyways thanks for the posts…Im glad to know that I am not the only one that feels like Im losing my mind!!! hah! Cheers to you all!!!

  30. Thanks everyone for sharing your experiences with this most challenging of transits. I know these comments are very helpful to others who come here for help.

  31. I cry for anyone undergoing pluto square sun. It is a relentless ass kicking. Mine started in December of 2012 and will be (finally!) wrapping itself up this November, December (2014).

    I think knowing the dynamics of the square is helpful, and also the timing, so you realize (even if it feels tremendously far off) that there is an end to it.

    I can see how it has helped me…ie like working out, feeling like vomiting, as you push yourself to a new level…but truly what has expanded in my life, is compassion for others…especially if you are a libra born after October 3…I cry for you, truly…but look I’ve almost made it…you can too!

    And, I imagine, when we both get there, others will be less likely to push us around…and if they do push us around, they might be surprised with the velocity and skill in which we push back…:)

  32. I am a 3rd decan Aries with Sun Venus in the 3rd and Mercury in the second decan. I aalready experiencing my transiting Uranus start to conjunct Mercury and the effect of it I started to feel about 2 years ago, let me tell you with a very unexpected and mysterious encounter with a person. (What would explain that all of my 3 planets are in the 12 house?) I have to mention the effect of sweet Neptune which is opposing my Moon in the 6th in the past 2 years and in a couple of years it will Oppose my Uranus, PLuto and Mars which are conjunct again in the 6th! And this will happen just before the Pluto square with my Sun and the Uranus conjuntion to my Sun. Well, let me tell you I am not waiting for this to happen since it is 12 and 6th house influence, and my family has a lot of health issues (father, brother) Thanks God not my kids or me, and hopefully I will survive this next lets say 5 years! I plan to REALLY lay low, but with the 12 house Neptune , and Uranus and Pluto what can I really predict? I really do not want to sound like a quotation from the school book, but I really hope that the 12 house mysterious influence when I call for help for someone “OUT THere”, will listen and come to my help and Mercy! I will let you know, in a few years! I hope :)!

  33. Meditation is a good skill to have/learn when going through intense periods. It stops your mind from thinking in overdrive constantly, driving you crazy or making you scared. Learn to sit still and relax. Doing nothing is harder than what you think. Uranus, Pluto and Neptune transits are challenging, but also rewarding. Read/learn about what each planet represents in your life and become a witness to how the transits are playing out and how it makes you feel. Let them in, feel them completely and let them go. Don’t be fooled into acting out every thought or impulse. All things eventually pass. People and situations also. If without thinking you fall into old habits, shut your eyes and bring your attention back to your inner self again. Breathe slowly and relax.

    I had a peak experience recently where I had to completely submit to a higher power. Have faith that something bigger than you is running the show. You are part of the plan with your own part to play. It is humanly possible to get through these times. Get fit and healthy, stick to a routine and stay away from drugs and alcohol. Get to know and become your true self. That’s what these transits are inviting you to do. . .

  34. Angel is a beacon in the darkest hour . I really like your post Angel .. thank you .

  35. I’m having it right now for the fourth time. It will remain within an orb of half a degree for the next 3 months. Pressure at work is mounting and I’m having trouble dealing with it. I have no support network and that could become the biggest problem; I’m an only child from a single mother. My family consists of two people (my mother and her brother) who hate each other. Some of my lifetime friends are deserting me and I haven’t been in a relationship for many years for reasons I can’t go into. I’ve had Pluto square pluto, opposite saturn and conjunct midheaven during the last five years. I’ve had enough.

    In my natal chart,I have pluto square (precisely 0°) saturn (ruler 10th house). Yeah, these people really exist.

    This will not be easy.

  36. I have uranus/northnode/neptune in Capp.. Moon/sun/mercury in Aries… Mars&Chiron on the 4th – I just realiced those are almost all my planets, namaste 🙂

  37. Hi I’m a Decan 2 Libra and have had most challenging years from 2013 to date which has related to career and extended family. Is my next 2 years going to continue in the same vain but on a personal front?

  38. Hi Jamie – I am 14 degree Libra and am wondering when the intensity if this transit will ease for me. Or if in the future it will become more intense. Thank You

    • Hi Suzi, these are the dates for Pluto at exactly 14 degrees Capricorn:

      25 January 2015 (direct)
      17 July 2015 (retrograde)
      30 November 2015 (direct)

      No wonder you asked right now! Pluto does retrograde back to 14°55′ Capricorn on 26 September 2016 but hopefully that will not be as strong for you.

  39. Hi Jamie. In your writing on this transit you reference the opportunity to “stand up and be counted”. Could you elaborate just a little on what you mean by that phrase?

    Thanks.. I’m very grateful!

    • Sure David. If you are under pressure, threatened or challenged, then you will have to be brave and never back down. Fight for your rights.

  40. I am going through a square sun Pluto transit. It has not been easy because it is crashing me by making aware of all my weaknesses. In addition, two of my cousins and my stepfather have passed away during this transit. Furthermore, my half-brother, whom I love dearly, just found out that he has HIV. The list just goes on and on. I feel vulnerable than ever. I do not know how long this is going to last. Any advice will be helpful to go through this transit. Thank you and Happy New Year 2016.

  41. Jamie. Thanks for this! My sun is Libra 11. 47’47”. Any more specifics on when this mostly impacts me or is close to complete. It’s been a wild few years.

    • You are out of the woods now Jihn. Your last exact square would have been in November 2014. Pluto stationed direct at 12.58 Capricorn in late September 2015 so since then the effect has been waning further.

  42. Thanks Jamie, this is helpful. With a Sun/Pluto/North Node exact conjunction at 14 and 15° Libra, this 3rd transit across in the past week has been really hard! and I have a couple more to go, Pluto is friggin relentless! It’s been transiting my 6th house of health and squaring my Sun/NN/Pluto combo, mostly it’s been dealing with extreme adrenal fatigue and sense of emptiness and no motivation, confusion about what my life is about and what I believe. It’s stripping down my identity to the core. The positive side is that it’s taken me deeper into my meditation and finding out what isn’t affected by any health condition. Here’s a blog post i just wrote a few days ago about it. Lots of love to you all going through these squares. It ain’t easy but what doesn’t kill us makes us stronger! http://tinyurl.com/hk6a3xt

    • Sounds so familiar to my experience. Thanks for the link to your work too Trista. Will check it out once I get through this pile of comments 🙂

  43. Hi Jamie,

    That’s a very insightful post ! How this would play in a solar return if Pluto transit is just within 1 degree orb and it will be retrograde during the solar return? (Sun Aries 16º)

    Thanks

    P.s: hope health is better 🙂

    • Much the same as the transit Meli but not as extreme because it lasts so long in your progressed chart. Pluto is retrograde 40% of the time so not as significant as an inner planet retrograde.

  44. Hello Jaime,
    I am 10 degree Aries and I would like to know when the intensity of this transit will settle for me. Since 2014, it has been especially challenging for my love life. I’m hoping the sunshine comes back to me sooner than later. Thank you.

    • This transit actually ended in October 2014 because you were born at the very beginning of Aries decan 2.

      Your major transit now is Saturn trine Sun transit from Dec 2015 to Oct 2016.

      Perhaps the problem with your life life is communication related with Pluto square Mercury transit from Mar 2016 to Oct 2017.
