Natal Saturn Conjunct Pluto

Saturn conjunct Pluto in the natal chart introduces you to hardship at an early age. Your parents may have been poor or one of them very strict, even mean to you. Even if you come from a wealthy family it is likely you experienced some kind restriction when you were young that shaped your character.

It is also likely that any hardship suffered was prolonged or intense to such a degree that made you grow up very quickly. A physical, mental or emotional disability may have a resulted from your difficulties, or have been the restrictive influence that made you suffer more than most.

As a result of early privation or loss you learned patience, self-reliance and resourcefulness. Such hard lessons taught you perseverance and may have given you a ruthless ambition to make something of your life. When you do face hardship like everyone else, you have the force of character to face it head on and endure it better than most. Your strong survival instinct keeps you going where others might fail.

When faced with a setback or restrictive influence in your life you can change and adapt to new realities. You can also stubbornly resist change but you will realize that you must evolve to succeed in life. You can fight against some restrictions and obstacles but others you must go around. If continued hard times get you down it is important not be hard on yourself. Depression and self-destructive habits would only make matters worse and you should seek professional help in such cases. Fearing the worst can sometimes make it happen.

If you experience continued loss or failure it is important to stay ethical and play by the rules. Otherwise you may face harsh criticism, scandal or legal problems. You must also resist any temptation to control or manipulate other people. It is possible that the hardships you face in life are karmic repercussions of controlling or ruthless behavior in previous lives.

Self discipline, good organizing skills and good time management make you productive and efficient. Your strong work ethic and tenacity can lead to a successful career with recognition and promotion. Marked achievements are likely and you may hold a position of authority or leadership.

You would work well in a career that has a defined structure and hierarchy like government agencies or large corporations. If self-employed you could build your business into a large undertaking and employ many people. Others will seek you advice and give you the respect you deserve. You will likely look back on your life with satisfaction and pride.

Saturn Conjunct Pluto Transit

Saturn conjunct Pluto transit is a time of hard work and serious business. You will need patience and determination as you face extra responsibilities with less time and resources to get the job done. As this transit approaches, events and people will force you to concentrate your efforts on one particular area of life that is no longer working well for you. It could be a relationship or career or a particular belief or behavior. Something in your life has outlived its usefulness and is holding you back, even if you don’t realize it at first.

You may experience loss, hardship or disappointment as you learn what it is that you must let go of or change. You may feel pressured or burdened by someone in a position of authority or a government department or large corporation. This may place a strain on your finances or force you to give up a hobby or family time. It is possible that a change in circumstances restricts your ability to enjoy other areas of life until you address the particular issue.

Is something is broken you must fix it or throw it out. You cannot leave things as they are and resist the powerful forces that are at play. You must act responsibility and you may even have to be ruthless in taking out the garbage.

It is best to approach the coming change by accepting the inevitable and do what must be done. If you ignore what soon becomes obvious, or stubbornly refuse to change, you risk complications that will make your life extremely difficult. Even worse would be to take short cuts or cheat. Immoral or unethical behavior such as lying, manipulation or breaking the law would have serious consequences that would further restrict your options and freedom.

Accept change and go with the flow. Listen to your intuition and listen to the advice of professionals. This is a time for deliberate, well-considered change. Once you let go of the limiting factors in your life you can use determination and perseverance to build new structures in their place. This is a slow, evolutionary process that builds new foundations on which to prosper in coming years.

  1. Thank you for a most detailed and interesting article. This conjunction will be sitting conjunct my Descendant just inside the 7th house. My asc/des is 20 47 Cancer/Capricorn… bring it on!

  2. Any activity China is doing right now in regards to military, is defensive not aggressive. China has 400 U.S military bases surrounding it’s borders in the South China Sea. The U.S has been orchestrating #FullSpectrumDominance for decades, now the noose is closing in.

  3. 1982 is when the US stock market began climbing after a slump beginning in 1968. The seventies were the weakest economy since the Great Depression. 1947 is also a low point on the 20th century chart leading to the 1966-68 high. That was the post New Deal, WW2 sustained boom. http://www.macrotrends.net/2324/sp-500-historical-chart-data
    Another is up move is suspect now. I use this to point out the importance of the conjunction. 1982 it was in Scorpio, 1947 Leo.
    Both had beneficial effects. This may the case of two negatives equal a positive.

  4. Will not be looking forward to this. This is the beginning of the conjunction of transiting Jupiter, Pluto and Saturn to my Neptune / Vertex, thus setting off the apex of my T Square. Transiting Neptune will also conjunct my 8th house Jupiter, so fun will not be had.

    @ Ben Gunn

    Hope you are right. Interestingly, transiting Uranus will be entering Taurus then, and since Taurus rules money amongst other things…

    • Forgot to add, this conjunction will kick off a Jupiter (briefly) / Pluto / Saturn square to Uranus cycle as well.

    • Hi Kit Kat. I am planning to write at least the Saturn and Pluto transits to all planets including to Neptune before these conjunctions.

  5. Next year on the 29th of March the UK is set to leave the EU. Saturn is going to be very close to conjunction with Pluto. Generally the horoscope I conjured up 00:00am 29-3-19 looks like a complete disaster in the making. Has anyone else checked it?

    • The conjunction and Brexit must be closely linked. It seems the EU has more troubles than the UK. Perhaps it will be a revolution and a new, better EU will emerge. Immigration and rigid conformity to PC idealistic fantasy are destroying the EU. I suspect when Pluto reaches Aquarius, that will signal the end of the divisive PC era. Pluto will re-model the Age of Aquarius. Each degree in an age is 66 years. The cusp of the Age of Aquarius is roughly 1868 to 2132 (two degrees). The first degree is 2066. Curiously the first degree in the Age of Pisces, 66 AD, was the start of the Jewish War, Rome vs Jerusalem, resulting in the destruction of Jerusalem and the great temple there, a very important date.

  6. I have natal pluto conjunct saturn. During my pluto conjunct saturn transit I had to have emergency surgery that’s when I found out that I had ectopic pregnancy and lost the baby.
