Natal Uranus Conjunct Pluto

Uranus conjunct Pluto natal gives an intense need for freedom but also subjects you to powerful controlling forces. You are often caught up in events beyond your control that can be dramatic and life-changing experiences.

In general, a feeling of being restrained or manipulated by people or society can cause agitation, defiance and rebellion. A lack of stability or inconstancy of purpose can lead to many ups and downs in life. At times you can be exceptional, and at others, be controversial. You can go from zero to hero but spiral out of control and hit rock bottom.

However, you can turn your life around very quickly. Through an evolutionary leap, you can transform your life. Sometimes you may become obsessed with some new idea or person and radically change direction, losing all interest and connection with your previous fascination.

Extreme or provocative behavior, such as cruelty, intimidation, or bullying, can cause controversy and chaos. Your relationships can be exciting and passionate but also tumultuous and painful.

Uranus conjunct Pluto natal can cause an unusual or unorthodox appearance and attitude. It can also give an interest in the occult, spiritualism, or abnormal states of mind. You have a liberalizing, reforming and modernizing impact on society, culture, politics, and the human condition.

Uranus Conjunct Pluto Transit

Uranus conjunct Pluto transit brings radical change that can be intense and upsetting. However, this can also be a very liberating time, especially if you have felt confined by current circumstances.

Powerful forces are acting that you cannot control. The key to dealing with this transit is open-mindedness and flexibility. Impatience for change, or stubborn resistance to it, could lead to unexpected behavior or chaotic events that destroy something you cherish.

  1. Thank you for this timely report, Jamie. I have contact to someone who is in this “dilemma”. His safe job has somehow gone stale, his wife has turned into a “battle axe” (she was so loud on the phone that bystanders could hear her) and a terrible tug- of- war has started with the rental flats bought in the time 2015-2016. Astrologically for the “native” a disastrous time having to have bought them then. With the upcoming conjunction Saturn/Pluto etc real expert advice in form of legal help would be necessary to untie the knots if possible. Another urgent reason to have astrological advice.

    • I created my own closing date and time by choosing a day where there were the most abundance of angles between my natal chart geometry and transiting planets in good relationships ; especially my asc.and Sun.The moon was in Taurus transiting my asc. and trining my natal Sun.The Sun especially I like to have in good aspect to transits. ( when in doubt take care of your Sun. ) Jupiter was in my natal 2nd sextiling my 4th and natal Jupiter in Cancer.The transiting moon also trined my natal Mars and n .node in Capricorn ., and my natal mercury in Virgo. Transiting mercury trined my natal venus , Neptune , ceres conjunction , ( Libra , ) moon / Saturn conjunction in Scorpio.The sun was in Taurus trining all my earth planets.Transiting Pluto was in grand trine to transiting moon and Taurus asc. , my Sun and conjuncting my natal n. node.There were other aspects that day , but I’m going from memory.
      That was the formula I used .So far so good !

  2. The first time the Uranus conjunct Pluto aspect was exact for me, was 9 October 1965. At the time, I was 20 years old and about to undergo a profound change that has coloured my life since then.
    Within a short time of that initial date, I embarked on a career in computers (very Uranian!) that lasted 45 years and during which I earned a great deal of money (Pluto). I was fired, and I subsequently retired, from my last computer job in 2012, the year that Uranus started squaring Pluto.
    Much more than this, I went through some profound personal changes too. The person that I am now, was born with this conjunction in 1965.
    It’s been an absolute TRIP!! Sometimes, an extremely difficult one…

    • Hello Char555! What a compelling comment. Seriously, you have real talent in this direction!! Dare I ask?….the 1965 born person is the significant other?

        • Uranus IS sextile Pluto in my chart. But the orb is six degrees, which is a bit wide. Well spotted!

      • Thank you, gingerbread!
        What was born in 1965 was a career, there wasn’t really a person involved. Although the colleagues in my new job were, for the first time in my life, my “kind of people”. Over and over again, I felt that I’d known some of them in previous lives – though these feelings were possibly awakened by the fact that Neptune was transiting my Ascendant?

  3. I have Pluto (22 Virgo), Jupiter and SN (26 Virgo), and Uranus station (29 Virgo) which is considered conjunct … born 6/9/69. So, beyond 1967 by the Uranus retrograde back from Libra for a month in May/June 1969. Its an interesting rare triple conjunct.

    • Lori, that’s quite a powerhouse you have there. Additionally, Uranus is at an anaretic degree.
      I hope you don’t mind, I ran a rudimentary chart and saw that your conjunction is involved in a mystic rectangle that includes Mars, Mercury and Chiron. And Mars is on fixed star Antares.
      Your “stellium” is quincunx Venus, who changes signs and ingresses into Taurus, one of the signs that she rules.
      On the day after your birthday, the Moon will have opposed your stellium, too, together with the NN.

  4. Hi Char … I will do some research on the mystic rectangle. I thought that my natal involved this configuration, but wasnt definite. My birth place, Dayton, Ohio at 4:08 am. I believe that Venus is in Taurus, 12th house conjunct Saturn within 2 degrees. This conjunct is the apex to a “golden” yod configuration involving Jupiter/South Node and Mars. Does my geography and time of birth change the mystic rectangle due to the orb too wide?

  5. I was a bit confused about moon opposite the triple conjunct “the day after” … it appears it was within a degree to north node “the day before” my birth. I was born close to 4 weeks premature, btw. Only 4 lbs, but very healthy. I was born within minutes after mom and dad made it to hospital. No time to prep her. Although very quick-, very painful as she was torn and had to have extensive repair (Aries Moon – intercepted in 12th) …

    • I’m so sorry for the muddle, Lori! Where I live, your birthday would be written 9/6/69, not 6/9/69. And then on top of that, I made your chart for 6 June instead of 9 June. So it’s all as you say.
      I did the chart on astro.com, in their standard format, which did not show your amazing Golden Yod on the chart – but of course (as you know) it’s there.
      Your Mystic Rectangle is intact. Jamie has written some excellent stuff on the aspects. Oh, I just took a look and he hasn’t done that one yet. But at cafeastrology it says:
      “The Mystic Rectangle, or Rectangle, is comprised of two opposition aspects, connected with two trine and two sextile aspects. The harmonious trine and sextile aspects can be considered release points for the tension of the oppositions. The native can be attracted to important causes. There is a strong chance that the native will put his or her talents to work, or to good use.”
      On top of everything, it looks as if your Jones pattern (chart shape) is a locomotive.
      But I’m sure you know all this!! Being the powerhouse that you are… 🙂

        • BTW gingerbread, when I took a closer look at the actual date when I started my computer career, Uranus was con Pluto with an orb of about 3.5 degrees.
          AND you were quite right about a SO being somewhere in there… I met him on my second day at that job. It was intense and upsetting, as Jamie said, but also wildly liberating. (It was also delirious (1967 was the so-called “summer of love” as well as having Uranus con Pluto some of the time)). Our first meeting chart has a massive Kite config with the Uranus/Pluto con (in house 6 – we met at work) opposing a tight Mercury/Venus/Chiron/Saturn stellium in 12. Jupiter trine Uranus was also in there.
          There was unexpected behaviour… there were chaotic events… there was loss and heartbreak.
          I’m very glad Jamie posted this aspect. It looks like it was a strong determining factor in my life and I didn’t even know it!

          • Good afternoon down there. It sounds like a meeting under Uranus/Venus. Huge infatuation immediately followed by sobering reality as the aspect has finished. Was it so?

            • Sort of. But don’t forget that Venus moves quickly, and there was a Saturn aspect involved too. Sobering reality was followed by re-ignition – followed by another reality check. Back and forth for more than three years. Then I got fed up and married someone else (the REAL significant other in my life).
              We reconnected seriously in 1993 (when tr Uranus was sextile tr Pluto, and every other tr planet in the sky zapped something in my natal chart – Uranus zapped my Saturn) and lived together for five years.
              He died in early 2011.
              I’ve only recently started taking a serious look at the personal effects of the outer planets. Until now, I went with the “generational effect” theory. These aspect posts of Jamie’s are extremely valuable to me, they are what really started piquing my interest. To my knowledge, Jamie’s are among the very few posts that make the outer planets personal in a way that totally makes sense to me.

            • Just quick….I wrote about Uranus transiting Venus not Venus transiting Uranus! That can take up to two years! Greets!

            • Aha!
              I’m getting muddled between interaspects on a certain day, and tr aspects to my natal, too (and transits to the picture of a day, too, like the first meeting chart). Wheels within wheels.
              I’m going to give this a rest now and earmark it as a future project.
              BTW, how did you work out the “down there”?

    • Hello Lori! Typical Uranus- in a real hurry…..Pluto “Life and Death” to the forefront. I am Aquarius Asc This, too, was a rush job. It was 14 miles to the next hospital and even though I was maybe a day or two later than estimated (in those days there wasn’t the accuracy) my mother still didn’t have her act together and the father fell to pieces completely. (mother very Pisces, father Cancer with Neptune conj). I was born in the hospital, however. My mother just took a package of cigarette with her. She is an Aussie, BTW. LOL.

  6. One of my favorite singers (and human beings) is Shirley Manson, the lead singer for the band Garbage. Her Uranus is 1°14′ from Pluto (August 6, 1966). She writes incredible lyrics about relationships and mental distress.”I Think I’m Paranoid” is a perfect example. Thanks for this, Jamie!

    • That’s great Greg. She has a AA rated birth time and I just added her to my files and updated the post. I often look at lyrics when doing research on celebrities, also quotes, plus their writing or singing, or even boxing style.

  7. Anyway I could get a look-see confirmation about what’s going on with my chart. Jan.16, 1964, 11:03EST am, Wilmington, DE. Back then 2-4 yrs old, my life was being torn apart, and it feels the same now. Stay or go, Go Where?? Any info or quidence would be Greatly Appreciated!

    • Hi gingerbread. Apparently my father asked not to politely for my mother to leave and to take my brother and I with her. She was caught in affair I suppose, he was of another race, he lived until 4/1973.
      So is there a similar transit going on now? I need to learn how to work the chart request on Astro.com.
      Currently I am in a – do I stay where I’m at even though I soon will have no Roomate, very little income, no credit left, and need at least $1600 a month to live, or sell everything and disappear somewhere, my lease is up June, been here for 7 yrs. No close/near family, friends, no job other than a few clients (independent massage therapist past 17 yrs,) past 4 yrs challenged with illness, deaths, last 3 places I’ve worked have had financial problems, so burnout and disappointment. Never blessed with inheritance or divorce settlement. Enough TMI for now. Thank you though!

      • Tawnia: I was speaking of a “progression”. Astro programs have that feature in the their systems. Otherwise it is rather time-consuming working it out. Progressions are a slow form of transit. You can get thrown out on the street from any number of combinations. Take your heart in your hands and go to an good astrologer. It isn’t too expensive. Through the internet I’ve exchange mails with several foreign ones. Put your situation in a nutshell and ask them for an estimate. Don’t just pay up front. A good one will explain why and how.

        • Tawnia, gingerbread is giving you good advice. Don’t forget that passing the IC also means endings of some kind, together with new beginnings. And if you’ve lived where you are for 7 years, maybe Saturn is telling you to move on to the next phase, as well.
          Good luck!

  8. Char555: Hello Char. You mentioned the use of date was reversed. And then I think you mentioned maybe to Jamie that you are an Aussie. Regards!

    • gingerbread: You have quite an eye for detail! Jamie is an Aussie, but I live in South Africa, a former British dominion.

      • Thank you for this, Char. I am an Aussie but don’t live there anymore. My nephews would be technically 6th generation Aussies but there is a technical “aberation” in there. As their father was born,his own mother had changed nationalities thus the chain was broken. The nephews then had parents with foreign passports/backgrounds.

  9. PS: Char…it is because you wrote so well. Americans are not even able to hold a pencil. A few howls will now appear. Wanting to get rid of Trump is a form of denial.

  10. I was born a day after the exact conjunction of Uranus and Pluto (in Virgo) in 1965. At this time, transiting Saturn and Chiron were in Pisces, opposite this conjunction. This explains the urge to rid ourselves of oppressive forces (Saturn) and fight for freedom (Uranus), at any cost (Pluto). This has taken great courage, but also caused tremendous suffering (Chiron) to ourselves through a loss of faith (Pisces). As we matured, these experiences have given us a great understanding of the human condition and the ability to heal and nurture others as well as the planet (Virgo). We are the warriors that will lead the fight against climate change, destruction of the natural world and human rights. But we need all the help we can get.

  11. Hello Angel. It depends on the location of this opposition! An acquaintance of mine is not out to save the world. His sister hopes he can save himself.

  12. Hi Gingerbread. I have known many of my generation who have been cast aside, abandoned and others who sadly never made it. The intensity is great. Neptune in Scorpio was sextile the Pluto-Uranus conjunction and this gives the ability to transform raw emotion and feeling into spiritual power. I truly hope your acquaintance realises his true power. Unconditional love, support and self worth are the pivot towards transformation. My best wishes.

  13. Hello Angel. That is a tall order. My brother isn’t the one at point here, but he would definitely not be interested in spiritual power or such stuff. Guys need just ordinary language to identify. I personally don’t go on the “spiritual trail”, either. But what a person “realizes” is mostly unknown. The great Yehudi Menhuin said, “Learning is a mystery.”

  14. Re: Gingerbread. I disagree. Learning is not a mystery. It is done by trial and error and when we we “know” better, we can adapt. Knowledge is an evolutionary process. Spirituality on the other hand is not magical thinking, it is having trust or faith in something that is not tangible. For example, you experience spirituality when you believe in yourself against all odds, you love unconditionally i.e, care for something or someone with no personal benefit, or have lived through a near death experience. If we don’t believe in anything we become empty vessels. De-humanisation is the theme of today’s society and the reason why people with a soul are suffering. For the others with no soul, they are the zombies. Just look around.

    • Athiests believe there’s nothing to believe in. , and zero is a number.So the believers win by default ! Yay !!!

      • When I was young my grandmother told me that bees have stingers.I wasn’t so sure so I grabbed one in my hand one day.it stung me.( mystery solved. )

  15. Angel: Now that you have contradicted one of the greatest musicians in the 20th Century, l want to discontinue this discussion. This about astrology not your worldview from an armchair perspective.

  16. Correction: A disagreement is not a contradiction and secondly a mature discussion requires more than one point of view. If you cannot understand that, you may have to remain in your safe space and stay out of the sun.

    • As I “disagree” with you Angel, I feel I must “contradict” what you said. Disagreement and contradiction are very nearly synonyms of each other, with only a few nuances added to each to make a difference.
      Please don’t speak of other people as being empty vessels. You may not speak for them, only for yourself. And EVERYONE has a soul. And what can you possibly know of someone else’s suffering, or lack of it?
      To put the subject back on track, it seems to me that this aspect / transit works very differently for everyone, depending on what they’re working through in this incarnation. Of course this applies to any and all aspects and transits.
      For example, gingerbread says she doesn’t go the “spiritual trail” and neither does her brother. The example I gave for myself doesn’t sound very spiritual either, but I did undergo some spiritual development as well (probably due to Neptune). This doesn’t mean that you and I are “right” and she is “wrong”, nor does it mean the opposite.
      I think we can all agree that this is an extremely INTENSE (Pluto) aspect and transit, in different ways and in different areas, for many of us. Shocking (Uranus) things happened to some. Most people may not have seen any changes in their own lives, but may have seen things happening around them to their friends, or maybe only on a mundane level.
      I’d really like to see some more (and different) personal examples being posted here…
      Angel, you really shouldn’t be using words like “mature” and “safe space” as a stick with which to beat people. It makes you sound high-and-mighty and judgmental and I’m sure you don’t want that.

      • 1965 and 66 were the years that Bob Dylan wrote his most iconic classic work. ( Bringing it all back home , Highway 61,Blonde on Blonde.) His writing was at its most original , and surreal.It had never been .before or since.pop music morphed from the traditional to psycadelic.Traditional sexual mores became liberated.
        (Uranus / Pluto. )and caution was turned to the wind , and it was found out later why such systems were in place to begin with.Virgo / Pluto /sex / health/ crisis.
        Protests of the Viet Nam war were at its height , (Uranus) influence..As with all things Pluto we didn’t find out until later about the ravages it would birth on the human psyche.( aids and other communicable diseases.) and the costly sobering influence it had on that generation.
        In summation : Astrology should be used as a tool to anticipate possibilities of potential crisis that could present themselves for future generations. , and perhaps we could nip them in the bud before they happen.This is why some liberal ideals should be relegated to the ‘ ether’ ( music , the arts … ) instead of unleashing it to manifest in the corporal world.

    • A disagreement can be a matter of opinion where either or neither may be right or wrong. More of a stalemate situation where at least one other individual is involved. ( unless u have multiple personalities .) A contradiction is an opposition to your personal previous view.it’s more hypocritical.We see this a lot in politics today. ( hehe ) Virgo clown. ♍😄

  17. Thank you, Char. You’ve come in twice to bat for me. In Oz I would have “shouted” you to a round. Do you have that expression in South Africa? These strong aspects certainly do have degrees of intensity, depending where they are in the birthchart if they are natal. I remember one case from my now deceased astrologer. He had an excellent Solar. There was only one fly in the ointment- a badly aspected Mars. That affected everything! It had free leash to do what it wanted.

  18. Gingerbread, that expression is not common here, but I’ve known enough Aussies for it to make sense to me – if I’ve got it right, please make mine a big glass of red plonk…
    I’m grateful that you pointed out my Uranus / Pluto sextile to me! Of course I know it’s in my chart, but I’ve always dismissed it as “only” a generational influence. It doesn’t even come up in my astro.com chart because the orb is too wide.
    And Lori’s comment drew to my attention that astro.com now has a tick-box for quintiles – at last my Saturn has an aspect apart from the semi-sextile!
    I can see that having a badly aspected Mars affect everything. I’m wondering if my weird Saturn affects everything about my character. Some astrologers say an unaspected Saturn (semi-sextiles & quintiles are too weak to count – or ARE they?) makes Saturn ineffective because it’s hard to access his energy. Others say he’s strong because he’s completely unaffected by any other planet natally.

    • Solar Fire is a program for amateurs and well as professionals. It’s not cheap but has many options. Some astrologers use just the basic aspects-square, opposition, etc. I have not done the course I wanted to do (where I now live it can be used as a qualification meaning tax deductions among other things). Certainly certain planets become very important if unaspected or on the angles. Jamie and another excellent astrologer with a blog in internet wrote it is possible to become a good astrologer without a course. I read Jamie said he participated in blogs just like this which is heartening. Just have to separate the wheat from chaff. From what you have already written, it sounds like your chart is very “Uranian”. Hard aspects like we have just had Pluto square Uranus reverberate most certainly in such charts- possibly not direct but indirectly. At any rate they are transiting through the horoscope and as such affect those areas. I have had Uranus in the 2nd house and this has been a PROBLEM. Coming Pluto/Saturn conjunction squares the 2 house planet and this is NOT good. These are the factors which determine the everyday big time, not just the natal chart alone. Very complex at times and the professionals can also make mistakes. Will stop now as day is just starting here. Until later, “Cheers”.

  19. RE: char555 and gingerbread. My final gift to both of you before I permanently leave this site: “Nothing in this world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity”. (Martin Luther King Jr.). It’s been fun and I wish you well.

  20. Hello everyone , they once called me the hanged man as well as Mr. Nobody….a odd state of mind some might say…where time perhaps seems to have been lost…….brought into this world on april 4 1966….both pluto and uranus at 16 degrees 28 minutes virgo….on the ic…3rd house….on my midheaven all within 2 degrees lies mercury,saturn,chiron,pallas in pisces…….sun in aries with moon in opposition as on that particular date was naturally a special time for me….after all it was also nisan 14th….passover eve/ passover…..where death and rebirth was always one of my specialties !!……april 4 1966…evanston,illinois…u.s.a…10:38 am …..i wish you all a great journey on your paths…….Neutral Fool !!

  21. Wow. Im just now noticing. Your reply. Its certainly been an adventure. I hope I am making waves. Mystic triangle with this retrograde Uranus at 29 degrees. Seems important. My current transits? Mind blowing stuff right now!!

  22. 1850 on the day it was exact Karl Marx published the Communist Manifesto. Neptune was in Pisces for the spreading of the religious movement far and wide. The closing square of Uranus/Pluto was 1933 when both FDR and Hitler came to power. The opening square to 1967 conjunction was the Arab Spring/Occupy.

  23. Heliocentric comparison
    Uranus-Pluto 1966 synastry with Saturn-Uranus 2021
    Orb factor 33%

    What do you see? Two aspects, trine and square.

    The square is very telling…
