Pluto and you

Pluto’s transit of Capricorn will have no influence on you personally.

Its influence is strictly global.

But Pluto in your birth chart does provide valuable information.

He reveals by his house position and aspects the strength of your universal welfare urge – your desire to contribute to the common good – and the area of your life where there is the opportunity for cooperation and contacting groups.

The people ruled by this house will exert undue pressure and coercion.

Pluto is the planet of groups, subtle force and coercion or cooperation and major events involving these matters only occur when Pluto is activated by progression.

Transit Pluto in your chart by its house position and aspects to birth chart and progressed planets has an inconsequential influence on your life.


Events related to Pluto’s transit of Capricorn are more inclined to occur when Mars, Jupiter, Saturn or Uranus form an aspect with Pluto in the sky.

And due to the transit’s long time-frame and an ever-changing mundane environment Pluto will influence different areas of the global agenda at different times.

The Pluto cycle commenced February 26, 1988 at 11.24.23pm GMT.

The World Wide Web went live on August 6, 1991 when the first email was sent and then came social media. This Pluto cycle connected the world.
