I, always, think about charts–mine, my family and those of my clients. I have an 11th House Pluto. I will not compromise to a group–any group. When I was in college, I did not join a sorority because I did not think I was strong enough to stand up. One of the books that influenced me most was “Last Summer” by Evan Hunter. I read all his books when I was in high school. Books were my oasis of sanity. Authors, usually, tell the truth. If not, they would not be read.
My family lied about everything. “Last Summer” was about teens who compromised in order to be socially accepted. I vowed never to do that.I have run away to avoid it, but I have not done it. I have Pluto in the house of GROUPS. I am strong in groups. I lead several,large FB groups and if you can’t stand up for yourself, I won’t help you,in most cases. You have to learn. If not, you will need someone, always, to be on your side. What if they are not there? My larger point is that I am strong in my house of Pluto and you, likely, are the same. Let’s look at Pluto in the houses.
Pluto in the 1st House
This person looks large and in charge, even if he or she is petite and Southern. There is, usually, the Pluto stare, which is akin to a Rotweiller when you enter his yard. The native may or may not be strong in other life areas, but he will exude a powerful presence which is perfect for a cop or any profession that demands respect. One of my clients is an English professor and she has this placement. Students respect her.
Pluto in the 2nd House
This native will be strong in the area of money. Pluto, also, brings drama to the house in which it resides, so the native may have financial ups and downs. However, lessons of toughness and maturity will be learned in the financial arena.
Pluto in the 3nd House
This native is famous for speaking her mind. I don’t know if Howard Stern has this, but he would be classic for it. I respect a person who can stand up for what he believes and weather the storms from others who do not have the same courage, which is, usually, the place from which the storms arise. This native will get sick if he cannot speak the truth. I have seen this, too. The House of Pluto is a very important part of the chart. If someone is stopped from expressing his strength, he may suffer physical and/or emotional illnes. Problems such as depression may result.
Pluto in the 4th House
This native seems to have grown up in a violent home. That is what I have observed from doing charts. The violence may be overt or a simmering sense of danger. This is a sad placement. The native never seems to really get over it, from my experience. Actually, I think we take many of our struggles with us through our entire life. I know the “good fairy” astrologers think people can overcome everything. I don’t think this is true from what I have observed.
Pluto in the 5th House
This native seems to have mucho drama in romance. In fact, I have never not seen this be the case. Relationships follow a tidal wave pattern of great ups and downs. I am not sure what he learns from this. I just know that this is what seems to happen. If you see a mild mannered dude whom you think would be vanilla but he has this placement, think again.
Pluto in the 6th House
This is not a fortunate placement. I tell it like it is because you deserve the truth. If someone does not like truth, please, be my guest and don’t read me. This placement may bring suffering with illnesses. It does not, always, have to be. I don’t want to say that, but this placement does seem to bring suffering,both emotional and physical. If you have it, please, share with us, so we can all learn.
Pluto in the 7th House
This is one of the harder placements. Marriage seems to be filled with ups and downs, through no fault of the native. The house of Pluto is not something a person can really change. He needs to ride with it. IF the House in which Pluto resides in your chart is not filled with ups and downs, I suspect your chart is wrong. I believe this to be the case with the house of Chiron, too. Will the person learn life lessons from this Pluto placement? I am not sure. Sometimes, our pain, simply, leaves us with pain and little wisdom. I think we can learn wisdom from our pain, though.
Pluto in the 8th House
Pluto likes to be in the 8th House. It is his home. Hence, this native has a dark side which he can use to good advantage. This is an excellent position for a detective, an FBI profiler and an author of dark books, such as Stephen King or Michael Connelly,two of my favorite writers. I don’t know if they have this placement, but their writing would be examples of an 8th House Pluto. This native is likely very perceptive. There is not much downside to an 8th House Pluto. The native will, also, likely, be comfortable with sexuality and his other primal passions.( I am jealous because I have Saturn in Scorpio, which is the opposite, but that is a story for another day)
Pluto in the 9th House
I have a 9th House stellium, so understand the 9th House. It is the house of the intellect. It is the house of higher education, long distance travel and the house of God. For the native with Pluto here, there is, likely, drama in one of the above.The native may drop in and out of school. The native may join a cult. The native may have been a hard core rocker who became a Born Again Christian, like Alice Cooper. How cool is that? I don’t know if he has this placement but the huge shake up in philosophy would be classic for it.
Pluto in the 10th House
This native seems to have career tidal waves, through no fault of his own. He may rise to CEO, lose it all and rise again. He may have a social reputation that rises and falls. Whatever is the case, this native will not, likely, have an easy ride when it comes to his place in society.
Pluto in the 11th House
This is mine, as I said. The 11th House is many different things. It is the house of hopes and dreams, service in faraway places, such as that of a missionary and the house of groups. It seems to be the house of groups in most of the charts I do. Hence, this native will have shake ups in one(usually) of these areas.
Pluto in the 12th House
This native seems to be Shirley Temple with a shiv. I heard that said about a guy who walked around with a plastic smile on his face, but would knife you behind your back. I am NOT saying all these natives are like this. Most are not. I am very close to a 12th House Pluto and she is as sweet as pie.She has never knifed me and I have known her for many, many years. However, they all seem to really repress their primal passions. It is, usually, for fear of these strong passions and what will result if they “let them go”. The 12th House suppresses that which resides within.
