Natal Saturn Conjunct Pluto

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

If 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 responsibly 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 a 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 the coming years.

  1. You never know who, or what, may gaze back at you during life’s journey. Climb a mountain like Everest, and face a traffic jam one year, a trail closure the next. Look at the famous mountaineer Nims Purja. (dob July 25/83). His record ascent of 14 in 2019, culminating at the same time (Oct 28) as the Astrologyking Cosmogenisis Project (Oct 31). He called it Project Possible. There’s even a Usage controversy with his viral May 22 photograph. That’s a neat reflection.

    Nims has Saturn- Pluto, and Jupiter- Saturn conjunctions, and Mars in wide orb to Sun.

  2. Correction
    Nims has Saturn- Pluto, and Jupiter- Uranus conjunctions.

    and his Neptune conjuncts Galactic Centre. Which would help explain his photograph revelation, and the difficulty in harnessing that power. Not that we don’t live in strange times as it is…. Standing in line, patiently distancing, don’t bunch up now…

  3. saturn pluto conj took place in 1982 also but it seems that as compared to the 1947 conj and 2020 conj the world went on without much problem. can you pl throw more light on this issue ? thanks

    • CDC acknowledged AIDS for the first time in September, 2 months before the conj. It was also smack dab in the middle of the Cold War, so the thought of impending doom was def in the air.

  4. I was born with a triple conjunction of Saturn, Pluto, and Mars. It made me stronger than most people I’ve ever met throughout my life; able to handle trials, tribulations, tragedy. I have seen a lot of tragedy even if it didn’t affect me. Pluto in the First House also tends to make someone a witness to those who pass on, or it makes us understand death and the other side in a way that others can’t grasp.

    It’s interesting and also stressful to live with it in general as a conjunction, mainly referring to Saturn and Pluto together like this — but it has made me far more resilient than others. It’s almost a blessing to me, but calling it a blessing would also not be appropriate… Rather, it’s something I’ve learned to hone and live with. It does grant presence, staying power, and authority, I will say that. It creates honest people, and Saturn adds integrity.

    Pluto grants intolerance of fakeness and anything that isn’t useful. It sounds ruthless and can be for sure, but it keeps superficial people from your life. And with the way society is today, I am glad for it. I don’t have half the problems people have because I don’t keep superficial people in my life, as they do in theirs.

    This conjunction allows those with it in their natal charts to stare into the abyss and come out stronger for it.

    • Thanks, Xavier.

      Pluto, or Hades as he is known in Greek mythology, is the one who tears off the mask people wear when they arrive in his realm. That mask was called ‘persona’.

      Pluto stands for being who you are, not trying to live up to expectancies, neither of others, nor of yourself.
      Having a strong Pluto placement gives the ability to see through the acting as if, the trying to please in the hope of- of others as well of yourself.

      Saturn adds dignity and ‘thou shalt not pass’ .

      It’s a real pleasure to read that someone has grasped that.

      Both have to do with be who you really are, and not pretend whom you assume you are expected to be.
