Does Pluto square Pluto have to mean hell and back? No way. It’s a rite-of-passage that occurs to everyone in their late Thirties or early Forties.
I’ve just been looking into my upcoming transits and see I have Pluto square Pluto for nearly 2 years.
I’ve browsed your Pluto category but didn’t find much in the way of information about this.
My understanding is limited but I feel a little apprehensive about this. Does it really mean total demolition?! My marriage is good, we have a 4-month-old beautiful daughter and I’m now worried about what shit is going to hit the fan!
Apart from stocking up on Pluto Juice do you have any tips for how to maximize and not fear this transit?!!
Many thanks – Worried Aqua
Dear Worried Aqua,
Please don’t fret! I don’t think I ever said “total demolition” but if you google Pluto square Pluto, there are some shocking delineations out of there. I can’t comment on what other people think except to say that some of them are needlessly scary and negative. Pluto on the Sun, Moon or an angle (Ascendant) can have quite dramatic results but WAY more likely when the situation is more like “my marriage is shaky” not your lovely scenario.
And besides Pluto-square-Pluto is just a generational thing – like Saturn Return. It happens to everyone born the same year as you at the same time. It’s the start of a whole series of ‘awakening’ transits. Neptune square Neptune and the Uranus opposition also feature in these ‘mid-life transits.”
There is no way to generalize on how this plays out but basically, you become more you. You could go yoga-mad, change career directions, invent something cool, reinvent yourself via parenthood, make an incredibly profound fresh friendship or get sexually woke.
.Just as Saturn Return is like the automatic age 29 get-thy-shit together scenario, Pluto-Pluto is like the “who-am-i-really?” psych trip.
A LOT of people find it really liberating. They feel mature but not old and less stuck on what other people think of them. See also Lol Astrological Milestones of Humanity
Pluto transits enrich you at the deepest levels of your being, helping you to be more whole and profoundly authentic. With Pluto square Pluto, in particular, it is as if the faux aspects of your persona fall away and you have the courage to be yourself.
