Pluto in the Twelfth House signifies traumatic psychological events and regeneration through sacrifice. But Pluto will not have a personal influence in the chart unless it is aspected by a personal planet, i.e. The Sun.
Pluto in the Second House exposes what is of true value and what is worthless. It shows the power to transform values through the material attachments of a generation. But Pluto will not have a personal influence in the chart unless it is aspected by one of the personal planets, i.e. The Moon.
During Pluto's transit of Libra, the world struggled to find a balance between burgeoning materialism and the stewardship of the earth, and the increasing polarity between east and west, rich and poor and the sexes. Personal human relationships went through a major transformation, while nations met in summits around the world to try and find common ground for accord. Issues of truth and accountability were raised as the Watergate story made headlines.
Pluto in the First House confers the power to physically regenerate according to the sign it is in. It increases the power of will and personal magnetism possessed by your generation. But Pluto will not be a personal influence in the chart unless it is aspected by a personal planet, i.e. The Sun.
Pluto in the Sixth House signifies regeneration through health and work typical of the generation, signified by the sign Pluto is in. There can be power struggles, and the ability to overcome massive health obstacles. But Pluto will not have a personal influence in a chart unless it is aspected by one of the personal planets, i.e. The Sun.
Pluto in the Seventh House indicates transformation through relationships according to the generational influence of the sign. There may be issues of power and control and "fatal attractions". But Pluto will not have a personal influence in a chart unless it is aspected by a personal planet, i.e. The Moon.
The transit of Pluto through Virgo was epitomized by the "Cold War", a chilly stand off between the forces of democracy and communism that brought the world to the brink of war in 1962, with the Cuban Missile Crisis. But the age of fire was over, for a while at least, and so war did not eventuate. There was a fascination with machinery, and technology, that began with the launch of Sputnik I in 1958 and culminated in the Moon Landing in 1972. This age saw the introduction of powerful computers as well as some earthshaking events, such as the assassinations of JFK and Martin Luther King. The earth is not stable in Virgo, a mutable sign, so change was a powerful feature of the 1960s.
Pluto is in the sign of Sagittarius, where it will remain until 2010. Sagittarius is about our belief systems, our ethics and our spiritual goals. Already these are being dissected, questioned and transformed in typical Pluto fashion, by exposing the can of worms to full view. All those with planets in Sagittarius will be affected by conjunction, and all those with planets in Gemini will be affected by opposition to this mysterious, transforming planet.
Pluto's transit of Scorpio brought a sexual threat in the proliferation of AIDS that transformed many lives and ended the lives of tens of thousands. Issues of sexuality long regarded as too intimate to discuss became the stuff of daily headlines and conversation. Barriers came crashing down in other ways, as well, with the end of the Berlin Wall, the demise of the USSR and Nelson Mandela's release from prison.
Pluto in the Eleventh House signifies regeneration through contact with transforming groups and people whose friendships change your life. There can be contact with people in power. But Pluto will not be a personal influence in the chart unless it is aspected by one of the personal planets, i.e. Mars.
Pluto in the Fourth House transforms through the nurturing power of the sign it is in. There can be power and control issues around the home. But Pluto will not have a personal influence in the chart unless it is aspected by a personal planet, i.e. Venus.
There is a lot of debate about whether Pluto is really a planet or not. Since its discovery in 1930 by astronomer Clyde W. Tombaugh, Pluto has been assigned the rulership of Scorpio. The mysterious nature of this distant object, the way it continues to confound attempts to see it closely, and its lonely position as the outpost to the galaxy, are Scorpionic in nature.
In addition, its discovery coincided with some decidedly Scorpionic events. Pluto orbits the sun approximately every 248 years, so it is a "generational" planet. It necomes a personal planet in the chart if it is aspected by one of the inner planets.
Pluto in the Fifth House indicates regeneration through creative and sexual power. There can be power struggles with children and lovers. But Pluto will not have a personal influence in the chart unless it is aspected by one of the personal planets, i.e. Mars.
During Pluto's transit of Leo, the Lion most in evidence was the Lion of Judah. Tremendous transformation occured for the Jewish people. Like the phoenix, they rose from the ashes of the holocaust with the reformation of the State of Israel and their return to Jerusalem (which city has The Lion of Judah as its standard). The other lion that roared and transformed the world forever was the Atomic bomb, falling on Nagasaki and Hiroshima in 1945.
During Pluto's transit of Cancer, nations were radically transformed by the slaughterfields of WWI, beginning the breaking of women's ties with the home as they took to the fields and the factories during the four year absence of male labor forces. The onset of the Great Depression in 1930 further strengthened women as they struggled to raise their families with men away in search of work. The Scorpio creed, "What does not kill me makes me stronger" was never more in evidence.
Pluto in the Ninth House indicates regeneration through spiritual transformation or contact with other cultures. But Pluto will not have a personal influence on the chart unless it is aspected by personal planets, i.e. Mercury.
