In astrology, Pluto represents the uncontrollable cleaning factor in our lives, the obsession, the need to dominate or to be dominated, the ultimate power feelings. Fundamentally transformational, Pluto is the force beyond control. Wherever Pluto is placed in one’s natal chart, there will be dramatic and unstoppable change. Pluto strips us to the bones and gives as a new flesh.

By interpreting Pluto in sign and house we can understand where there are chances for obsessive behaviors in native’s life and also what types of power struggle is he or she meant to undertake. Pluto rules also the underground, but not only in terms of mobsters and thugs, but also in terms of revolutionary (sometimes even subversive) movements. Historically speaking, Pluto delineated large portions in the generational stream, based on what needed to be cleaned out. The obsession for “clean food” or “detox” of native born with Pluto in Virgo (people born in the seventies, for instance) is a good example of how Pluto works at a generational level.

If badly aspected in one’s chart, Pluto will make room for violent behavior or obsessive actions. If positively aspected, Pluto will give to the native extreme stamina and endurance more beyond the credible layer (these are the people accomplishing “incredible” tasks).

It’s understandable how Pluto got a pretty bad reputation, being seen as an “evil” planet of some sort. But, fundamentally, its actions are extremely useful: they clean up the accumulated garbage (violently, most of the time, that’s true) but that gives room to a new life to grow.

Pluto rules the sign of Scorpio.
