Total destruction, new opportunities, renewal and healing. This is how Pluto is described in Astrology. Planet “modern” (only discovered in 1930), soon associated with the events of the decade: 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.”

Brief Astronomy Facts about Pluto

Pluto is one of the “modern” planets, along with Uranus and Neptune. This expression refers to planets that were unknown in ancient times, at a time when it was only possible to glimpse them with the naked eye and there were no instruments of observation. Pluto was discovered by the American astronomer Clyde Tombaugh in 1930. Being very small, it is currently considered a dwarf planet, only in 2006 it was 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 6 days and 9 hours to complete one revolution on its own 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 that is toxic: in the 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, the theory of superiority.

Pluto’s function in Astrology is to reveal all that is wrong and what is wrong, giving us the opportunity to confront this reality and transform it . 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 really want to go there.

Pluto illuminates the soul . It forces you to think, to look within, to reflect, to 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 and the values with which we govern our lives. In the way we relate to others, in the family and in society.

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 the creation of 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 total annihilation. In 1930, there was a breakthrough in the field of psychotherapy. Starting a therapy is an exploration of our underworld, a deep analysis of our subconscious (buried emotions) that, in this way, open up to emotional healing .

Deep knowledge in the right hands has 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 Greek word for wealth.
