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. In 1982, the conjunction was in my 9th H, right on the cusp of MC. That year I immigrated to a country I didn’t not speak the language. It was hard going but looking back on it, I benefitted tremendously. The upcoming conjucntion will be in my 1st H, not conjunct to any planet but opp. my Jupiter 2 degrees apart. Not really looking forward to it since it’s in the 1st H. 🙁

  2. In 1982, there was a little known crises avoided with Russia. We almost went full out thermo nuclear war. yikes. This time Saturn and Pluto will conjunct within five degrees of the US chart. I’m getting out before then.

  3. This looks so interesting – all those planets in stellium are trine to my Saturn in Taurus, and trine to my Venus-Pluto-midpoint in Virgo. ( Venus 18 and Pluto 25 degrees ). At the same time Mars is trine to my Sun-Mars-conjunction in Leo, and Venus is trine to my Ascendant-Jupiter-conjunction in Libra – both of these within one degree ! Can I expect something good out of this – last years my health and living situation has been extremely hard ( for 7 years now, living has been difficult since 2015 ) and I would finally just wanna have my peace, secure and nice home, and continue – after long pause due to ill health and depression – my arts. Does this chart look promising to finally having good home, and better health with more mobility ?

  4. With Pluto on my ascendant and Saturn and Mars with it in weak first house stellium, guess when all three transiting with Ceres and Mercury conjunct my natal Sun on 12 Jan 2020, will have an interesting time. Glad my affairs are in order.
    Suspect anyone with natal planet(s) or a point between 20-22 Capricorn may expect similar.
    Bearing in mind Mother Shipton’s mediaeval poem about end times, St Malachy’s prophecy about the last pope (current one) as ‘Petrus Romanus’ before end of the world as we know it, and possibility that dire Mayan 2012 prophecy is eight years out, seems around January 2020 will be a massive global hammering.
    A cataclysm far worse than eg Krakatoa? Start of World War III? Wasn’t Saturn-Pluto’s last conjunction a month after start of WWI?

  5. I will have this conjunction opposite my Moon, which is tightly conjunct to Black Moon Lilith (osc), and square natal Neptune.
    Eris will make this a full square. Meanwhile, Neptune will transit exactly on my Sun.
    My take is this: if I was born to meet this during my lifetime, I can handle it, and I can learn a lot from this.

  6. This stellium will be conjunct my ascendant (18 cap) square my mars (21 lib) opposite my mercury (21can) square my BML (20ari). Neptune will be conjunct my moon, jupiter square my saturn, chiron conjunct my IC, BML conjunct my chiron.
    My beloved step daughter has a serious mental illness and the asteroid bearing her name will sit right in the middle of this stellium. Someone tell me something positive. I cannot see it…

  7. a revolt against the green new deal?(“masses protest the changes being forced upon them” :by what’s left of the Illuminati who move to nyc from England and france?

  8. I was born November 9, 1983, and Saturn and Pluto (and sun and mercury in the same sign…) are conjunct. how is that possible if you say they have not conjuncted since Nov 7, 1982, and won’t again until…?
    I’m legit confused.

    • also interesting, the 2020 stellium looks similar to the one in my natal chart. saturn sun pluto mercury conjunct in scorpio in my 11th and 12th houses.
      how is food involved in the 2020 situation?

  9. But can we talk about this Saturn PLuto KETu conj..that will happen first?…its not a tight conj..but I think they create a compelling stellium…and it is within orb..of the USA’s natal Pluto (PLuto return)

    • Ketu is the abondonment of the material world, …and there it is in Capricorn, conjunct Jupiter, Gault, and Alice. Gault an asteroid, now a comet, suggests an electrifying or magnetic life coming into consciousness. Alice is about staying sane in an insane world. But, the problem is that Ketu is here, not Rahu. We have to take this lump of cataclysmic energy in Capricorn and move it to Cancer… we are called upon to do this with tenderness and feeling.

  10. Someone I know has their natal saturn at the exact same degree as this conjunction. This will be their first saturn return as well. I am guessing this may not bode well?
