Destruction, new opportunities, renewal, and healing. This is how Pluto is described in Astrology. Planet “modern” (only discovered in 1930) was soon associated with the decade’s events: the rise of a new generation of dictators and the development of nuclear technology. Pluto is a co-ruler of Scorpio, whose traditional ruling planet is Mars. He has an intense, obsessive, and compulsive personality.
“The growth of the soul hangs over the cross of matter. This is surpassed by the spirit, symbolizing the descent of the spirit through the soul of matter, and the inconsistent mind that feels the fire of renewal.”

Pluto is one of the “modern” planets, along with Uranus and Neptune. This expression refers to unknown planets in ancient times when it was only possible to glimpse them with the naked eye, and there were no observation instruments.
Pluto was discovered by the American astronomer Clyde Tombaugh in 1930. Being very small, it is currently considered a dwarf planet; only in 2006 was it considered a planet.
Given the great distance of this dwarf planet, its observation from Earth is quite difficult. Pluto takes 248 Earth years to make one complete revolution around the Sun, a little over six days and 9 hours to complete one revolution on its axis of rotation, and about 20 years to move in a single sign of the Zodiac. Despite being smaller than our Moon, Pluto has a thin atmosphere.
Pluto Symbiology in Astrology
The symbolism of the “modern” planets in modern Astrology is quite independent of the myths related to the world of the gods. However, both in the case of Neptune and Pluto, myths adorn the astrological interpretation.
Pluto, a Roman version of the Greek lord of the underworld, Hades, symbolizes the deep unconscious, crime, and depravity. In mythology, Hades wore an invisibility helmet when he came out of hell, which was a great advantage in his many seduction campaigns. Similarly, Pluto speaks of what is invisible or apparent.
The discovery of Pluto by astrologers was seen as a harbinger of the events of 1930, including the rise of a new generation of dictators. It also reflects the birth of new energies with an immense capacity for destruction, as is the case with atomic energy.
Pluto in Astrology
CAN. UNDERWORLD. HELL.
Pluto symbolizes the need to confront everything that is deepest and most mysterious in the human psyche. This planet represents everything toxic: in mind, in relationships, in society, in the world. But also, everything that needs to be eliminated: evil, envy, violence, contempt for others, discrimination, resentment, injustice, the values that despise some in favor of others, and the theory of superiority.
Pluto’s function in Astrology is to reveal all that is wrong and what is wrong, allowing us to confront and transform this reality. It is like an electric shock, a warning, a sign that tells us that we are on the wrong track and that we must think if we want to go there.
Pluto illuminates the soul. It forces you to think, look within, reflect, and search the depths of the subconscious for answers. Encourages to search for the most hidden causes, to search the soul. It makes us think about our true nature, the deepest feelings, the values with which we govern our lives, how we relate to others, in family, and din it.
In the most difficult moments of personal darkness and social catastrophe, Pluto leads people and society to experience life’s problems in greater depth, leading to renewal, rebirth, and healing. This planet leads to creating a new reality to replace the one that ends, but almost always, in a violent way.
Pluto in Astrology - Transformation
However, Pluto’s role in Astrology is not limited to fear, loss, or destruction. In 1930, there was a breakthrough in the field of psychotherapy. Starting therapy is an exploration of our underworld, a deep analysis of our subconscious (buried emotions) that, in this way, opens up to emotional healing.
Deep knowledge in the right hands has an enormous capacity for positive transformation. However, on Pluto, even this involves long-suffering. Pluto can also mean wealth because its name derives from “plutos,” the word for wealth.
How is Pluto Expressed through Signs?
Given their long orbits, which make their positions irrelevant, the signs Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Aquarius, and Pisces are not considered in Pluto’s sphere of influence.
Pluto in Cancer
Approximate position in Cancer - 1914-1939
Pluto going through Cancer corresponded to a dramatic period for humanity, covering the time of the two world wars. Destruction, death, genocide, and the rise to power of malefic figures were events that left deep marks and negatively influenced several generations.
With Pluto in Leo, the “Generation ME” was born. With the end of the Second World War, society was transformed. The nuclear family is fragmented with a strong desire for individuality. The desire for autonomy and freedom of individual expression contributed to creating a new social consciousness and expression.
The issues related to health and pollution on the planet have gained importance. The woman managed to gain some power over her body with contraception. Free love revolutionized the traditional conception of the family and the nature of relationships.
Pluto in Scorpio infected the world with a new disease that killed many and launched a panic: AIDS. Faced with the unexpected, ongoing social change and a lack of the ability to fight evil, individuals turned to the spiritual.
A new opportunity arises to transform society. This time, the need to make the world more equal, where all peoples from all continents have access to living conditions with dignity and social justice. The environmental concern becomes the agenda of the day. The need to find emotional well-being is increasingly present in all cultures.
Each of the planets dominates a specific aspect of our life. Your Sun sign, the Zodiac sign where the Sun was at the time you were born, governs the most intimate area of your Being. However, the remaining planets also help characterize your astrological personality.
For example, suppose Mercury, the planet that governs communication, was in Leo when you were born. In that case, your communication style is likely to be passionate and enthusiastic, characteristics traditionally attributed to this sign.
