Pluto Transits to Natal Saturn

Pluto Transits to Natal Saturn

By Corinne Lane     23 Comments

When Pluto transits your natal Saturn, it signifies a profound psychological transformation that influences and connects various life experiences, depending on the position of your natal Saturn and its aspects with other planets. This transformation occurs at a deep and fundamental level.

Furthermore, the significant challenges brought about by this transformation mean that nothing can be suppressed. Doing so would result in immense tension, potentially leading to resignation and even illness.

If approached in a positive manner, this transit can help bring about radical changes in the structure of your life, your responsibilities, goals, and even the karma inherited from the past. Interactions with others, be it intimate or professional relationships, carry karmic implications.

You have the power to create or dismantle resilient and difficult structures. Matters related to your profession and finances become of utmost importance. Life experiences will demand important changes. All the karmic baggage from the past will be transformed, either to be overcome or to seek retribution.

  1. Hi, I just wanted to leave some insight as I am experiencing this exact transit (trine). I woke up in a bad and sad mood today, but I felt a strong urge to confide in my partner how I have been feeling lately (self love struggles) and I feel much better, hopeful, and happy, and I now know the hard work I need to put in to improve my relationship with myself. So this transit definitely has its benefits!

  2. See, I didn’t realize transit pluto was opp my natal Saturn (7h cancer) and now I realize why I’ve wanted a s/o so bad and suddenly these past few months. I’ve literally been depressed because of it. Also I just realized it was conjunct my cap Chiron in my 1h, and honestly I’m just now grasping that I do in fact have childhood trauma and these past few months have been really difficult. I’m just losing hope. I hope the future proves to me that this was worth it.

      Hang in there. Remember, this is just energy… experiences that help FORM US… so, it is like, food, which forms us… but you have to pick the right food to form you in a healthy way. So, that means, the thoughts you have will help form who you are NOW and into the future. As the article states, the structure which you have built your life on, has to CHANGE. It is time to do so in some way, let GO of something, start SMALL if you have to, even IF it is not the real thing you have to change…just practice… get used to the idea… and love your self. Remember, there are other energies happening at the same time. Take a look to see SUPPORTING ENERGIES… HAPPENING FOR YOU, ALSO.

    • Hi Ceny,

      I am experiencing this transit atm. It feels horrible. So lonely and depressed. After having Pluto cross my ascendant and the years of karmic crap I could have definitely done without feeling so crap. Has this now past for you? And has life gotten easier?

  3. Andrea on said:

    Hi! Transiting Pluto is currently conjunct my Capricorn Sun (7th house) and as such, soon in opposition to my Moon and Saturn (both in 1st house – Saturn in Cancer, and Moon in Leo). What does it mean when Sun is sandwiched in between in such fashion? Everything is falling apart at the moment, and it is really hard to take decisions. Thank you.

    i am in the midst of a transit of pluto square to my natal saturn. It began exactly during the first week of lockdown last year, so far i managed quiet well to reorganise some things in my company in order to be more free of work. The last months I feel a strong opposition to continue, and a new huge menace is threatening me know. At this moment everything seems quite dark for the future.

    the whole astrology thing is nothing but wickedness.

    • Hi Katie, I meditated on your comment, & this is what Holy ‘Spirit’ relayed: Persistent scattered thoughts, ‘spinning your wheels.’ Focus only on top priorities. You are being affected deeply by the pain of separation, or understanding why you have been inflicted with such sorrow. You needed to go it alone to build up valuable life experience & maturity. Your emotional suffering is a purging process to allow yourself freedom from your past. Allow yourself to experience the pain, give yourself the right to grieve and release the heartache. Don’t get stuck in the moment of grief; accept the situation and do the healing process. Let it go. Slow down, meditate, ground yourself. Never be afraid to say you are sorry. Always think before you speak so that you will not later regret what you have said. Be the peacemaker. If you focus on leaving your past behind and embracing new opportunities, you will not stay blocked. Once the upset, pain and tears have gone, doors to new experiences open. You’re on the path to recovery, and realizing that there are other things in your life which you can feel happy about. You are reaching a point where you can accept the pain and hurt and are ready to move on.
      Please Take Care 💚

  6. I have transit pluto in 10th house capricorn opposition natal saturn. The situation has been bad at work and the boss has put me in cold storage. I do not know what to expect next nor do I know why I have not been asked to leave yet. I resisted some unfair demands at work which were not work related and that made it worse. It took me less than 48 hours to accept those demands but by then the damage has been done.

  7. Am going through a long opposition of Pluto to natal Saturn in 10th house. It is working out well. We are downsizing our home. Our last house is sold and our things are in storage while we live in a temporary place until our new smaller house is finished. So much of our stuff is inaccessible for now and we have disposed of a lot. Now just managing with what we need to have. All fine! Liberating.

      Hi Penny,
      In 2023 I start 2 years of transiting PLUTO opposition my Saturn in the 10th. I am afraid of how it might affect my home and career. Your experience made me feel more hopeful that it won’t create a “death” in the area of my home and career. Perhaps, only restrictions? Have you noticed any other effects from it? And are your natal aspects to Saturn positive or challenging because that can make a difference in terms of how that transit affects you. Thank you for your reply.

    • I am close to an opposition Pluto transit my 4th house opposite natal Saturn in 10th house. Would you think it’s more likely there’s a change at home? House move etc..Than change in the professional work area.

  8. Mary Ann S. on said:

    Pluto went direct and hitting my Saturn in Libra exact today. Boy do I feel it. My body is completely riddled with arthritis flare up. Can’t wait till Pluto moves on. Dreaming of sitting on a warm sunny beach somewhere. 😊

  9. I was sorry to hear how others were also suffering from this transit and wish the best positive outcomes
    I lost my job, my home of 20 years, a close friend abandoned me b/c I was so distraught. I put everything I own in storage, my best guy friend died after a quick illness. He filled the hole when I lost my family. I totaled my car on Valentine’s Day after a painful eye opening breakup. Had to go to the ER for physical injuries then have surgery and was abandoned.
    Applied for unemployment benefits but it did not start for 5 months while I looked for work. Had no option but to live in my car. Ended up lasting two years during COVID. It was very unsafe and humiliating.A guy was shot in the head 200 yards from a spot I thought was safe to park at and a girl od’d parked next to me.
    Moved from my home state which broke my heart. I felt defeated. I hoped to heal and get back on my feet. It’s the loneliest I’ve ever felt. Thought I was making progress. I was dealing with PTSD, severe depression and couldn’t get therapy. It’s been hard to navigate w/o anyone to talk to or guidance. I just couldn’t see a way back to normalcy & rebuilding to anywhere close to what I had worked so hard for and sacrificed so much for b/c I am now 61. Eventually I got to a point I wasn’t crying daily. I was literally begging for work. Uhaul hired me to wash trucks, stock what others didn’t want to stock ( b/c it is heavy) and clean but it was work.I hoped my repaired shoulder would not be damaged.
    I earned a college degree many years ago and have a skill set and experience to do enterprise sales which is the top level of sales type jobs Finally got a job in my field after 5 years of this hardship.
    Then my storage was auctioned so now I own a totaled car and gym clothes.
    Spent 20 years rebuilding my life and all I owned now belongs to strangers. I didn’t even get my photos, artwork, letters from my family and recordings of my family when they were alive, so many happy momentos are gone. I am an artist and all my artwork is gone. All heirloom furniture & jewelry gone.
    I live in the desert where I don’t belong. My immediate family died during the last transit like this so I should be used to it. But I’m not used to it. I miss them so much.
    Had to have shoulder surgery when I was living in my car. It got so bad I had to drive my stick with my left hand. No one would give me a chance at jobs I was over qualified for, I couldn’t use my right arm so couldn’t do physical work. No one would rent to me b/c I couldn’t find work and didn’t have unemployment insurance.
    I don’t know when these losses will slow down, if I have the strength or time to rebuild again. I lost two teeth, one towards the front and my bridge came out, I’m having health problems and feel utterly hopeless.
    This is the Saturn conjunct Pluto transit. I will move to Pluto opposite saturn transit next. Also having years of Neptune square Venus.
    Please forgive me being a downer and telling so much. I don’t have anyone to talk to & I struggle for my thoughts to be hopeful and see positives after the impact of these events.
    I didn’t ever harm anyone or steal or live a dishonest life. I took care of family when they needed me.
    I really don’t understand why these things r happening.
    It seems my health is next. Even though I worked out and ate right my whole life which is a hard sacrifice I am at an all time low physically. I also need $8 k in dental work, hand surgery, something is wrong w/ my digestion & heart.
    Mentally I feel defeated, humiliated & tortured & so exhausted.

      I’m so sorry for all that you’ve gone through katie, it breaks my heart to hear all this. my transit pluto opposition saturn is just beginning today.💔🙏🕊🙌😔⚘❤

    • Michelle Branz on said:

      Thank you for your honesty…May God help you.

  10. Hi Katie,
    Please look into applying for food stamps ( if you don’t already), look up any alumni from your college nearby for job leads, and the United Way and Salvation Army (for assistance). I’d also see if you qualify for disability from Social Security. Keep us posted!!!

  11. My natal saturn retrograde conjunct transiting pluto retrograde

  12. I have Pluto conj Saturn natally in the 5th (quincunx Sun conjoined with Saturn in the 12th, and Mars conjoined with my ascendant 2-3° away). It’s just hard. It’s a hard life on the interior plane. Constant frustration and loss. I’ve been existentially oriented my whole life and suicidal for most of it too. But I hold on, I do the inner work, I maintain hope, I change things. Then new losses and problems come arise. It feels like (the) god(s) hates you. This is absolutely a karmic pattern. I know that I am paying some debts in this life.

    I’m now 40 and just cleared the Pluto square Pluto years. Both of my parents and my geriatric cat came close to death. They are all still here for now. I moved. I picked up old addictions to deal with my pain and grief— thankfully my relationship to them has changed so it’s not harmful in my life like it used to be but they are still a crutch that I lean on sometimes. And now of course, Saturn just two degrees behind Pluto, I’m now in Pluto square Saturn. Having these planets in my 5th house has been very difficult and I’m in early lonely. I make the effort but nothing comes to fruition. Even finding a therapist is proving futile. This is a go it alone and ensure transit. I don’t know what is on the other side, but I know I will make it.

    • ♥️😘Thank you everyone for your replies. I feel heartfelt kindness. It has meant so much💕❣️💜
      Thank you Riri ~you have the gift💖and use it the right way. Spot on. I feel the warmth of your thoughts and words. You are a blessing and a healer ~truly it is exactly the right guidance I’ve been seeking so long
      “Those that want you to succeed
      Help you succeed”
      I’ve printed your words
      You are so helpful!!
      B, your kind words feel like a hug from a loved one.💛Thank you so much. I didn’t think of reaching out to alumni!
      Still on the same path bouncing between Pluto conjunct Saturn and Pluto opposite Saturn. Gets too hard to keep trying so hard when obstacle block every avenue since 2017 fBenign clusters of tumors are on my pancreas and liver so have to get MRI’s yearly + 2 masses on my gallbladder. I started anti depressants, meditation, breath work, inner healing, and art so they stop growing.
      Ari said it feels like hate from our maker. That really resonates with me. Bad times have to end at some point.
      Ari I’m so sorry.
      You are incredibly strong beyond anything you can imagine with this aspect in your natal chart.
      This configuration in natal charts is only for the strongest.
      I understand your path & your pain with & admire you.
      You are in my prayers.
      Return frequently even if only in your imagination to the things that brought joy into your life.
      If it is karmic as you mentioned rest assured your debt will be clear.

  13. Yes pluto square by transit is hard. Really hard. I am currently feeling the pain it causes as I have natal pluto at 28 libra and Saturn at 0 Scorpio. That never ending back and forth of pluto in Capricorn and aquarius is pure torture. It will last two years and the fact that I already have that dreadful conjunction in my natal chart is making it more painful
    Transiting pluto is in my 6th hitting my natal in 4th.. Uranus is also contributing into this mess as it is transiting my 10th hitting all my personal planets hard..workwise I m in a dead end. All those years I was just working for survival, underpaid and overworked despite having a degree. Sometimes I doubt that Pluto wants us to transform our lives for the better. It is a very dark period as I feel useless, nonexistent, nobody is giving me a decent job opportunity and it has affected my living situation..all those years I worked hard to be able to have a decent living space and now it’s all gone.. I refuse to take low paying and casual jobs as it is keeping me poor and struggling and I want to break this cycle. I ve had enough of it, I can’t do this anymore..
    Pluto hard aspects by transit are vile, it breaks your spirit and messes your life irreparably..

  14. I am so sad to read how difficult life is for so many but also so encouraged to read between those same lines at how persevering we all are in spite of so many challenges. I currently have Pluto conjunct my capricorn north node/ascendant in the 1st house while it also squares my libra sun/saturn natal conjunction in the 9th. This transit has been going on for for the past several years. I don’t recognize my life anymore and find it hard to move forward with no direction – I feel lost. I know there is a bigger picture here and that in order for change to come into my life right now something has to be moved out of the way to create that space for the new, but the negatives can be so overwhelming that seems to be all I can experience at this time. My aries moon keeps whispering to me to not give up or give in, that better days are ahead.

    much love and peace to all of you!
