Pluto Returning to Sagittarius

This weekend Pluto will move back into Sagittarius for the last time in more years than I care to think about. He will only move a couple of degrees before stationing direct once more in early September to return to Capricorn by the end of November. As many other astrologers are saying, this is an opportunity to review concerns related to the area of our charts Pluto is transiting and do some “housecleaning” in general.

Pluto is always pushing to remove the old to make way for the possibility of re-birth and regeneration and if we don’t tackle this voluntarily, he’ll be happy to give us a hand. I checked the interpretation for Pluto in the second house (where Pluto is transiting my chart) and my software offered this:

“Pluto in 2nd House
Your business sense is enhanced, and you are able to really get down to what is important when it comes to making decisions affecting your material welfare. Superficial possessions may no longer interest you. Instead, things of lasting value appeal.”

With as much Scorpio and Pluto influence as I have in my natal chart, the superficial has never appealed and my creative works reflect a joy in making things of lasting value. Why else spin wool and knit a sweater for my SO on size 0 knitting needles to make a sweater he wears to work in every winter? In fact most of my creations are alive and well and in use, even those I made over 35 years ago.

In the beautiful valley I live in, the Pluto in Sagittarius years brought in many people interested in horses and riding in the nearby hills. They typically bought 5-10 acres, built fences and barns for two or three horses as well as a large, sprawling home. Well, the rising costs of supporting that form of recreation are making many re-think horse ownership. After all, it’s damned expensive now to fuel up those big ‘ole diesel pickup trucks for pulling a four horse trailer! Not too mention how the increased fuel costs have affected the cost of hay and grain for feed.

An additional note on the recreational horse business: I found out a friend of mine who has raised Arabian horses for over 40 years has to put down several yearlings and send some of her older horses to the sale yard because she simply can’t afford to do otherwise. She is one who lives and breathes horses so this is a wrenching decision for her. How many other horse people out there will be facing similar choices?

The Full Moon conjunct Pluto in Sagittarius coming up on June 18 is ushering in the winds of change in fire and air signs. What will be left when the winds die down?

The latest Question & Answer post is up on Real Astrologers on synastry and Sun signs.


This is about as green as it gets here. Within a week or two, the hay will be cut and the hills will start to serious brown up. It’s been lovely while it lasted but I wouldn’t appreciate the green without the dry season . . . :-D

    It’s lovely, wish I could run a little through that garden (not run in the athletic sense, but gallop like Sadges do – I often don’t walk around the house but gallop)…Pluto is transiting my 9th house. I don’t think my philosophies have changed and I’m not unhappy about them so I want to keep them – is that alright Pluto?As for superior education, Pluto did knock it down a little for me. I thought it’d be fabulous but is was plain.

    It’s an eye appealing green Neith, so restful.I ache for your friend who has to put down her friends. It seems all too common a story. Around here horses are being found released and starving. This is a terrible place to keep horses imo. Being a Sag the stories break my heart.Well ol’ Pluto is taking his last close-up and personal to my sun. Pluto will stay in my tenth house for a bit longer. It will be interesting to see how the flavor changes between Sagittarius and Capricorn. I am completely with you on making beautiful things of lasting value. Certainly that is a Scandinavian quality as well.

    Pluto will be done transiting my eighth house in february 2009. it has been extremely tough transit-one long power struggle after another-very little peace in my life-I feel bad for the gemini-rising people who are going to get hit next.

    Pluto is transiting my 9th house. I don’t think my philosophies have changed and I’m not unhappy about them so I want to keep them – is that alright Pluto?Bet you have more clarity about your philosophies and who you are than before Pluto tramped through!here’s the text from my software on Pluto in the 9th:Pluto in 9th HouseA time when you may have a passionate and relentless search for what is lasting and of value, call it truth, religion, or philosophy. You tear through appearance, and dig and analyze until you get to the very heart of truth.

    hey tseka! I ache for your friend who has to put down her friends. It seems all too common a story. Around here horses are being found released and starving. This is a terrible place to keep horses imo. Being a Sag the stories break my heart.I have a sinking feeling we will be seeing more of this type of thing occurring over the coming months. No one is buying grade horses now either except for dog food and even that’s not paying much. very, very sad.Here’s the text on Pluto in the 10th: Pluto in 10th HouseA relentless getting-down-to-essentials makes your sense of management and practical vision very deep now. You have a sense of mass psychology, how to organize and manipulate sensitive areas of the public mind. Could be mentally stressful for you.In some ways one of the more difficult things about the transition from Sagittarius to Capricorn, is the perception Capricorn will take some of the fun out of life. Now I’m not so sure i agree. Capricorns have a great sense of humor, it’s just more subtle. Yes, lots of people especially in the USA will have to give up their recreational “toys” but they’ll survive . . . :-D

    Hi anon,Pluto will be done transiting my eighth house in february 2009. it has been extremely tough transit-one long power struggle after another-very little peace in my life-I feel bad for the gemini-rising people who are going to get hit next.Know what you mean about Pluto and power struggles . . . when Pluto transited my ASC and first house, I exhausted myself with those.heh, Gemini rising types will make it look much easier [whether it is or not] with their ability to take different sides to every question! :::grin:::here’s the text for Pluto transiting the 8th:Pluto in 8th HouseA tremendous sense for taking care of business is upon you. You are relentless about cutting through appearances and laying bare what is really essential in a situation. This amounts to a passion and benefits you in all business situations.

    Definitely true about being clearer right now :) Thanks for that!

    I hope you are right about gemini-rising types having it easier-my mother is a gemini rising.I also have my moon in the eighth house opposite my saturn-you can’imagine how much fun that was. My son was born a few years ago. His pluto is conjunct my moon. Regardless, he is a happy healthy boy!!

    sad sad emoticon here. I like horses better than people. Interesting but appropriate that Sag brought about a huge upswing in horse ownership. Transiting Pluto is on the cusp of my 9th. Knowledge or travel? Who wants to take bets?Don’t you love when you bring up an aspect and everyone has to rush to see how it affects them? me included. 98 and climbing here. No real rain for weeks now. Our grass is definitely crunchy.

  • casey

    oh, and why do I seem to get SOOO many headaches in the Gemini time? Every year. Month of June = severe headaches.

  • casey

    I take that back…it’s 103 and the humidity is 39%. woah.

  • neith

    My son was born a few years ago. His pluto is conjunct my moon. Regardless, he is a happy healthy boy!!Happy healthy children are all we can ask for . . . and keep in mind it’s your Moon and his Pluto. We have a couple of toddlers in the family with Pluto in Sagittarius, one is Aquarius Sun & the other Pisces Sun. Busy, active littles they are.

  • neith

    Transiting Pluto is on the cusp of my 9th. Knowledge or travel? Who wants to take bets?Ideally you can combine the two! I have Saturn/Pluto conjunct in my 9th natally and the only time I lived abroad was to go to school. Tremendous learning experience and very uncomfortable all at the same time. Probably Saturn’s fault . . . :-Doh, and why do I seem to get SOOO many headaches in the Gemini time? Every year. Month of June = severe headaches.I’d be inclined to blame them on some sort of seasonal allergen. I take that back…it’s 103 and the humidity is 39%. woah.OMG!! Thank heavens for AC! I’ll take our low 80′s with a breeze any day. :::smirk:::

    My son has Sagitarrius rising and his second son does too…I think…sometimes the charts all run together…so I ran off to astrodienst to check and ding…ding…ding…they not only both have Sagitarrius rising but they’re almost exactly the same degree. The Pookie one however has Scorpio rising. Here’s an interesting question for you, neith. Pookie has almost everything in the western hemisphere (except Pluto in Sag) while Jase has everything in the eastern.

  • neith

    Here’s an interesting question for you, neith. Pookie has almost everything in the western hemisphere (except Pluto in Sag) while Jase has everything in the eastern.Traditionally that makes Jase a much more self-directed person and the rest of his chart points in that direction too. Pookie, on the other hand, not only has most of his planets in the western hemisphere but his sun is right on the descendant, so he’s is more of a “we” person (or at least more affected by what others think of him).All those Sagittarius risings and you a Pisces sun & Taurus ASC . . . :-D

  • casey

    Yes, but they’re all earth signs except Eric who’s a Libra with an Aquarius moon. Remember Jase is the little double Virgo. And the Pookster has an Aries moon. (THAT runs in my family) They all blow up and get over it and I hold my temper and then blow up and NEVER get over it. (the difference between Aries & Scorpio, non?)A rough day at work. I’ve been making mistake after mistake, wrote over a bunch of data, messed up everything I’ve been given to do. Nine of Swords kind of day.

  • neith

    And the Pookster has an Aries moon. (THAT runs in my family) They all blow up and get over it and I hold my temper and then blow up and NEVER get over it. (the difference between Aries & Scorpio, non?)LOL! Yes, Aries Moon people are so much better than us Scorpio types at dealing with anger. I swallow too much even when I know better!

    Speaking of horses, you might find this post at the Rolling Dog Ranch Animal Sanctuary cheering:http://rollingdogranch.typepad.com/rolling_dog_ranch_animal_/2008/06/video-copper-ki.htmlI love this blog. Sometimes heartbreaking, but incredibly wonderful work they do here.
