Excuse me...ancient man looked at the skies and

had a connection we have LOST...

Do not judge without knowing anything about the history and archetypes of astrology.

I completely agree...Luckily,

astrologers have never given up on Pluto...

It's discovery came at the dawn of the atomic age, it represents ...

"If any planetary energy represents an unconscious, instinctive, primordial, collective and transpersonal force, it is Pluto.

Much has been written about Pluto, probably because all that the planet symbolizes is so little understood or comprehended on the conscious, intellectual level.


Pluto correlates with peak experience in which there is a kind of dying and rebirth. Afterwards the perceptions of reality are never again the same. Examples of these types of experiences that we all go through are having a love affair; having a child, a death experience (a close brush with one’s own death or death of someone close). War and other collective disasters are Plutonian experiences.


Power and the temptation to power are Plutonian issues. Faust desired worldly power and sold his soul for it. Jesus resisted the temptation for worldly powers in favor of eternal, immortal power. Pluto/Hades (god of the underworld), raped Persephone, and later he made her queen; she became empowered, through the experience of the loss of innocence, or ignorance.

Pluto’s power is hypnotic and chthonic. It comes up from the underworld, from deep within the earth, within the being of the body. It is kundalini, the serpent power, in the Yogic tradition. Awaken this goddess kundalini at your own risk! It is the divine transforming fire from within which purifies and purges the physical, emotional, and mental bodies. If those vehicles are not prepared, it creates volcanic upheavals as it pushes through one’s being.

In fact, volcanoes are very symbolic of Plutonian energies. The serene mountain, like Fuji or Mt. Shasta, can erupt suddenly with great power and violence, spewing ash, and molten lava flows over all the surrounding area. The land is transformed! In time, a long time, the volcanic products break down into rich soil and new types of growth appear in place of what was there before, but in the mean time there is utter devastation.

How many of us have been burned by Pluto’s fires when transiting Pluto made a hard aspect to a natal planet? Afterwards, we are changed. And long afterwards when we can see the evolution that took place, we are grateful. We would not want to go back to who and what we were, even if that were possible, which, of course, it is not.


Pluto is the dark, powerful, intense, regenerative life force. Raw life force does not recognize taboos. It is “gutsy” and rises up from beneath like a plant shoot pushing through the earth toward the sunlight. Issues around Pluto are power, eroticism, pain and transformation.
