Pluto in the Astrology Chart
Please first see my Pt 1 Post about the Astrological Pluto: Pluto Mythic Keys.
Now here is more information on the Astrological Pluto:
Pluto’s remote orbit is the dark boundary between the Solar System and the Transcendent: the last outpost. Pluto and its Moon, which is actually half its size, revolve endlessly around a common point which is located somewhere between them in space – icy methane snowballs performing a unique and mysterious dance as they travel their far-flung orbit. Pluto is the 9th Planet of the Solar System and he takes 248 years to complete one revolution of the Sun.
Pluto’s average distance from the sun is nearly four billion miles. It also has the most elliptical and tilted orbit of any planet, and at its closest point to the sun it passes inside the orbit of Neptune, the eighth planet.
Pluto was discovered on 18th February 1930 by Clyde Tombaugh in Lowell Observatory, Flagstaff, Arizona, at 16.00hrs. He was orbiting at 17 deg Cancer in the western astrology tropical zodiac, which is at 24 deg Vedic/sidereal Gemini, in Nakshatra 7 Punarvasu (ruled by Jupiter) in Pada 2 (ruled by Taurus). The Nakshatras are the wonderful Lunar Zodiac od vedic astrology.
N.B. The chart for his discovery is at the foot of this Blog Post.
PLUTO – LIGHT AND DARK SIDES
Pluto was the God of the Underworld, who handed out good or evil in proportion to the motives of the person who approached him.
Pluto’s good side is buried treasure, unimagined riches, light out of darkness, order out of chaos and New Life – REBIRTH!
Pluto’s dark side is a terrible world of rape and destruction: a power-seeking abuser.
Pluto’s is the world of:
Domination and submission
Aggressor and victim
If Pluto is approached with sincerity, rebirth will follow out of suffering and darkness.
If Pluto is approached with falsehood or defensiveness, he destroys.
PLUTO IN THE NATAL CHART
The Natal position of Pluto in the chart is the key to where the individual’s process of rebirth will begin. This is where Pluto has set up His altar in our chart.
The affairs of this house are not to be taken at face value.
