When I want to figure out Houses, I trust Chiron the most. The reason is that most people can point to THE most painful part of themselves. It is different for everyone but everyone does have a Chiron. If I want to refine the time of birth, I will look to the other planets. Each planet should fit in it’s House. The native should know in which each House each planet goes if an Astrologer asks the right questions. Some purists may think I am cheating but I have found my methods to work with actual clients, so I trust them.
This brings me to the subject of Pluto’s House. I talk a lot about pain and abuse. This is because I know about these subjects, but I, also, know about power. We, all, do. For every person who won’t raise her voice a peep, she has ONE place in which she is powerful. This will be the House of Pluto. I have Pluto in the 11th House. Before I knew anything about Astrology, the idea that I could be forced to go along with a group activity for reasons of popularity terrified me.
When I went to college, I shunned sororities. I never wanted to be in that place where I had so much group pressure that I was forced to conform. One of my most memorable times in college was watching the Milgrim Experiment. This experiment was done to see how people reacted to authority i.e if people could buck authority when told to do something evil. It was designed to try to explain Nazi Germany. (Now, we don’t have to explain it because it is happening again with Israel, before our eyes, but that is another subject, which you can ask me about, if you want)
At any rate, I never can subordinate myself to groups. That is my Pluto in the 11th. I have been very wimpy in my life. I have not stood up countless, countless times when I should have. However, with groups, I have never been submerged. I say all this to explain Pluto’s House for you to look at your own charts.
Once again, if Pluto does not fit in it’s House, please re-check your birth time. All planets should fit in their houses if your time is right! I await your Comments about Pluto’s House for you!
