Pluto Transits

Pluto transits in Astrology can be one of the most challenging and intense times of one’s life. They can be both generational and personal. A generational Pluto transit is when a group of people born during the same period in time, are experiencing this transit.

A personal transit of Pluto is when the transiting Pluto is aspecting one of the personal planets in the birth chart. These are: the natal Sun, the natal Moon or natal Venus.

Fighting or resisting change is the hard way to move through Pluto transits. 

A transit of Pluto to Pluto by square or opposition is a generational transit. To find out if you have this transit, you must know what degree and sign your Pluto was at the time of your birth and where it is now. You can find this information by either checking your natal chart or the ephemeris.

A Pluto square Pluto transit obliges us to let go and change. To find out what you need to let go off or change, you must check where your natal Pluto is placed in the birth chart and what house it rules.

Transiting Pluto aspecting the natal Sun will often symbolise a time when we review our life and our current situation. During this time we think about where we want to go and what we want to do next.

With the transiting Pluto aspecting your natal Moon, you want to get in touch with your emotional needs. However, when the transiting Pluto aspects the natal Venus, the energy of Pluto forces us to transform in how we love and what we value.
