Pluto Transits to Natal Sun

Pluto Transits to Natal Sun

By Corinne Lane     26 Comments

Pluto transiting your natal sun produces a very radical change in life, especially when it comes to creative potentials, ambitions and regenerative resources. All the subconscious force buried for years comes to the surface and is sometimes very difficult to handle, because we have to confront directly the way we treat our hidden power.

We must, therefore, overcome very difficult obstacles to realize our internal power, and to realize what we are able to overcome when Pluto puts us to the test. It is an extremely difficult period, through which you will come out with a renewed force, as a creative rebirth. The emergence of huge willpower and resistance is typical at this time, even in people considered weak.

Everything that was once considered important in the outer life, or what was consciously aspired, is totally transformed through this period of confrontations.

One must mold and control a devastating energy that arises from within, because it also has a violence that is not only caused by the environment but also caused by the way we provoke the environment. It is better not to try to dominate others and concentrate on mastering oneself.

You can provoke furious oppositions if you do not change all your attitudes, and if you do not use this energy to transform your life, because, if not, circumstances force change at all costs. You also feel that you have no control over your life until all the old habits disappear and you make room for some new ones. It means a change of direction in the subjects indicated by the signs and house involved in the transit.

Transit Pluto Conjunct Sun

When transit Pluto is conjunct your natal Sun, it can transform ambitions and goals, and, if handled well, you can achieve things considered unattainable before. You have to break useless structures and make immense progress in your outer life. You will feel forced to face reprehensible psychological aspects of yourself. You have to be especially careful with egotism, or selfish motivations, because the force that this transit gives must be used to improve everything around, not only oneself. Every effort must be made to expand your awareness of who and what you are, and what you contribute to your environment and to humanity in general.

Transit Pluto Sextile Sun

When transit Pluto is sextile your natal Sun, it is favorable to find creative resources in your life and act more effectively. There may be opportunities to take more power or assume more authority. You can rebuild what you need to rebuild and repair any damage you have suffered before. You can alter your life goals, because your true purposes will become evident now.

Ambitions can be carried out effectively. There may be a reward for challenges that have been overcome previously. It is possible that this gives an enormous vision of oneself and the capacity to make the necessary changes that you want both in yourself and in the environment. It is favorable for recovery and physical regeneration, to be cured of any disease. You can see the essential mind-body unity and express it with creativity and individuality.

Transit Pluto Square Sun

When transit Pluto is square your natal Sun, it is a great test of the strength and energy you have to establish yourself in the world. You will know who you are through a series of crises that prove your control over yourself. There are power struggles with another person or people caused by selfishness, either yours or that of the other person or persons, either in your profession or with an authoritarian person in your environment or with a personal relationship.

You have to be willing to compromise your will as long as you determine exactly what you want and what your needs are. The body has a difficult period to handle, because the external confrontations can cause exhaustion. However, it is a critical time to do an internal reconstruction. Sometimes, under extreme conditions, this transit releases its energies at once, causing dangerous physical damage or physical struggles.

You are surrounded by collapsing conditions as a sign of the internal change that is coming. Care must be taken not to violate the rights of others and establish a strong and honest position. The whole subconscious plays a very important role, and it is a moment to become aware of certain energies that are operating in your inner being.

Transit Pluto Trine Sun

When transit Pluto is trine your natal Sun, it is favorable to find creative resources in your life and act more effectively. There may be opportunities to take more power or assume more authority. You can rebuild what you need to rebuild and repair any damage you have suffered before. You can alter your life goals, because your true purposes will become evident now.

Ambitions can be carried out effectively. There may be a reward for challenges that have been overcome previously. It is possible that this gives an enormous vision of oneself and the capacity to make the necessary changes that you want both in yourself and in the environment. It is favorable for recovery and physical regeneration, to be cured of any disease. You can see the essential mind-body unity and express it with creativity and individuality.

Transit Pluto Opposite Sun

When transit Pluto is opposite your natal Sun, it can be tremendously difficult in relationships with others, since all those that do not serve your evolution will be definitively broken. There are many power struggles, and you should try not to force another person to take a certain course of action. Attempts to dominate on both sides must be examined to understand the motivations. You feel the need to prove that you are stronger than your opponent, which causes very difficult situations. You have to avoid interfering in the affairs of others.

You must be careful that this transit does not bring conflicts with the authorities. Either way, it produces a great ambition and a great energy to achieve what is wanted as long as the motivations are pure. The defeats mean that all the plans have to be rethought. Under certain conditions, you may feel physical exhaustion. You must take care of this and not be the victim of adverse circumstances beyond your control.

  1. Thank you for such an insightful rendering of the plutonian effects upon the natal sun. I’m undergoing such now with pluto I Capricorn opposing my natal sun in cancer. The physical exhaustion, fearfulness, paranoia, etc are ravaging my body, mind and soul, it seems. the gift of your insight is appreciated….unlike psychotherapy, good astrology is tailored and targeted to specifics in one’s life.

  2. Cancerian sun with Pluto opposition natal mars in cancer. Becoming very aware of need to rest and doing so.
    I work with sick people which I am suited too so deep rest is vital

  3. Peter Cayce on said:

    It’s not just Pluto transiting opposition your natal Sun. Saturn is conjunct Pluto, so both planets are currently opposing natal Suns in Cancer. Jupiter, the great magnifier, will be opposing all natal Cancer Suns at 22 degrees in mid March. So Jupiter will make whatever you’re feeling from these transits larger, more potent, and more impacting. Around March 21st, Jupiter, Mars (another major catalyst), and Pluto are all at approximately 23 degrees / 24 degrees Capricorn and are all opposing natal Cancer Suns at approximately 23 degrees or so. This is not bad in itself, It’s just a very big catalyst.

  4. Thankyou for reply . My cancerian sun is 7 or 8 of cancer (30 June). Marsat 23 degrees crab and Uranus at 26 of crab. So will just wait and see I guess. I work as a nurse so have some balance going Om .
    Thankyou thankyou

      Bara:
      If your Cancer Sun is at 7 or 8 degrees Cancer, you will NOT feel March 2020 transits at 22 degrees Capricorn. Transits only effect you approximately 2 degrees before they are partile (exact) and almost immediately begin to dissipate once the conjunction, square, or in this case the opposition occurs. In other words, transits basically begin to affect your 7 degree Cancer Sun at approximately 5 degrees Libra (square), 5 degrees Capricorn (opposition), 5 degrees Aries (square), and 5 degrees Cancer (conjunction).

  5. Peter Cayce on said:

    CLARIFICATION:
    …..but you should feel your Mars Uranus conjunction and whatever other aspects you may have to your Mars/Uranus conjunction. But not your Sun.
    Look at what house(s) your Mars and Uranus is in. Those houses are affected. For example, if your natal Mars and Uranus conjunction is in your 7th House, you may note partnership and other 7th house issues coming up, etc.

  6. Heavy like a herd of elephants and painful is a great way of explaining what I’ve been experiencing with natal sun in Cap 27 in the 6th. Leo rising 7deg. Pluto transiting the 6th from 2009 has bowled me over leaving me naked as all hell. Saturn conj sun atm Jupiter on its way for last pass to sun and Pluto today stationary at 23, it will be a few years till I feel the exact conjunct to sun. After this year I am looking forward to “ just Pluto “ … Dark Night of the Soul … 17/01/1966 Sydney AUS 7.40pm

    I am going through this transition now and will have the last exact aspect in December. For me it started in late 2019 and has manifested as a string of deaths of very close important people in my life. Found my cousin dead in December 2018, Mom had a stroke 2 days after we buried her and I lost Mom in March 2019. Then Larry, then 2 very close lifelong friends in the last qtr of 2019. The exact aspects didn’t hit until 2020. My 2 teenage sons and I were at loggerheads and they finally moved out. My home was in shambles and still is. Waiting out all of the retrogrades and the pandemic to fix it and sell it. I have worried about my health because I was for the first time in my life depressed for almost 2 solid years. I feel better and have simply sat still until the dust settled. There was nothing I could do but wait it out and grieve. I am praying my health was not negatively impacted as I turned 55 last weekend. I was a crossfitter when the sh!t hit the fan and when I internalized, I left my old life to hibernate. Now that I feel better, I am back to exercising but I have 40 lbs to lose less before Croasfit is even an option. Plus as Pluto separates from my sun, it will join Jupiter and Saturn in my 6th house. I’ll keep pushing on and praying.

    • I hear you yes yes yes except the deaths. These haven’t happened as I have 2 years till conjunction. I’ve never been happier within I must say, after what you call hibernation, I call it isolation, I was done, my Soul exhausted. As an astrologer I was aware of the health and fitness aspects. I wasn’t good at health before Pluto went into Cap in 2008/9, I’m realizing I must integrate this holistically as a way of living now 55 in Jan, I’m integrating my solar 6th house Sun. I do a lot of service in a 12th step program on a global level, I love it, I’m in alignment now as I’m “In Service” happily, without resistance, no longer a rescuer/fixer, 6th house and natal Pluto in Virgo the server conj the 2nd. Death will not be too challenging as all my people died to me as I released attachment and codependency. Don’t get me wrong it will be unfortunate for sure however I near died so I faced the reality of death. There is no Death to me, no finality. Best of blessings to you on our journey home.

      Sixth House Health issues. Can also affect work related issues.

      • Yep it sure did, I lost my Company in the GFC BS. Bankrupt. I lost my son my home THE LOT. Lost the false self identity as well. Was broken, didn’t care about work much, my body was breaking down. It feels like I touched bottom and am rising now.

      • Ryan Keisling on said:

        Pluto started to oppose my sun this year, also in square with 6th house. 3 of my pets died, I got covid and lymes. My house is wrecked! I lost work and am physically unable to really get around even if I could find a new job. I owe thousands in back property taxes… one thing after another! But I am healing even if slowly…
        Pluto transits are hard! I am unsure how to move forward and the right choices to make…sometimes I wonder is Pluto just gonna kill me!

    • Hi Donna, Monique and Peter,

      I happened upon this thread cos I am having a load of transits by opposition right now. I have natal sun at 24 degrees and natal saturn at 22 degrees in the 7th house of cancer. My dad died end of May so hear you with the death, only 1 so far but have pluto transit running all next year before moving out in 2022! My marriage is breaking up (7th house no surprise) I feel depressed for the first time in my life, never have before and zero energy and motivation, I have put on a load of weight too, sever lockdown in Spain has´t helped… I just wanted to say I am with you, I know what you are going through!

      • O Hi Jade, we are with you too, for 10 years I thought I was the only one who’s life came crashing down but it seems we are experiencing what many on the planet will soon learn to overcome, LOSS…However I now see the truely beautiful blessing of learning and growth that precludes the loss, the must do commitment to go within and rely on a much greater power, our Higher Self for comfort, self love and companionship… that’s how I dealt with the very dark night of the Soul, now I practice remaining in the Now unattached to outcomes. Bless You Jade x ❤️PS I couldn’t have survived without ACA ( adult children of alcoholics/addicts and dysfunction parenting. I had to reparenting myself with love starting at 52

        • Thankyou peter Yes natal mars 23 of crab with natal Uranus at 26 degrees cancer. I didn’t get back sooner as I get back from work as a nurse and rest. I believe the mars Uranus conjunction is in 6th house. But work is as usual. Move from site to site and work in all forms of nursing. My 7th house deptof life has been in a form of stickiness for many years. No actual partner just a variety of people with varying problems whom I tend to keep at a distance (moon in Scorpio conjunct Saturn). I feel for people but need my own space to avoid becoming exhausted. Tending to flow with it. If I orientate from a spiritual/ compassionate stance I am fine. Piscesor aquarius ascendant. Thankyou thankyou aloha

        • Stuckness Not stickiness. Damn spellcheck

  8. Accurate thanks

  9. GEEKYGUY on said:

    A friend of mine got mugged when transiting Pluto was exactly conjunct his natal Sun. The incredibly frightening and traumatic nature of the experience served to completely tear down and rebuild him on a personality level.

    I think an example also of Pluto and power issues.

    • Monique on said:

      Sadly my ex, during Pluto approaching my Mercury bashed me a few times. A mugging would be horrific however what I’ve been through, that would be expected and a walk in the park so to speak, I guess I’ve hit the lowest I can go

  10. So true. I’ve never felt so under psychologic assault as I do so now and totally trapped.. I literally have no power to do anything I’d like to in life as I now iny 60s. Freedom is my byword and it’s being tested to the max. Pluto is conjunct my natal Sun and Uranus conjunct my natal Moon square my natal Venus and Uranus! I fell in love with another man , an undertaker( how plutonion) with a violent past and a volcanic temper. There is a huge soul remembrance between us but it feels like an unexpected fight. Moving on is accepted but to what? I’m being shown nothing but hopium. It’s an unpleasant energy if you can’t control it.

  11. Send Prayers my Loves on said:

    So I have a natal sun/Ceres conjunction at 22 Sag in the 3rd house, and got magically trapped during lockdown and beyond in what has been the most horrific abuse situation of my entire life. I have not been able to get out because of my financial situation. I understand that it is an honor to be hated by miogynistic male supremacist abusers, but I lost my whole support structure and I’ve been gaslit, robbed, raped, slandered, even had a false police report filed against me and armed cops showing up at my apartment. I have battled the abusers since I could not get out. One extremely violent one moved out. One robbed me blind and skipped town. One moved downstairs when he finally stole something expensive enough to file a police report but turns the heat up for the whole building to 90 degrees every night 3x per night, which I think is his new way to prevent me from sleeping, one of his top 5 abuse tactics. The enabler is still in the apartment and insists I’m “crazy”.
    I coudn’t be more scared and frustrated and there really is no help for women in my situation.
    These were not people I know but I had to default on my student loans when I was homeless for the eight years of the Obama Great Depression and cannot pass a credit check to get an apartment.
    I did not know these abusers before they moved in. I have lived here for years and travelled right before lockdown and one roommate moved out and rented to abuser #1 who drove out the other women and brought in his bros. I couldn’t leave because of the student loan situation.
    It’s bloody hell. I don’t know how to get out. I stay quiet as a mouse to not attract attention and usually pee in a bucket so I don’t have to risk my safety by walking to the bathroom. I still have to sleep in the bed and room I was raped in.
    My only hope is student loan forgiveness. I was $36000 in debt when I left school, so locked in 19% compound interest over the past 13 years?
    I get tired when people claim the student loan forgiveness thing is for rich kids. No. It’s. Not. I’ve lost so many years and could literally be murdered in my home because impossible student loans that will never go away and prevent apartment rentals are a literal device for killing the poors.

    Sorry for the long rant. I have no one to talk to or vent to irl.

    TL/DR Pluto inconjunct in fourth house SUCKs and keeps continuing for years apparently..

    I see no way out.

    • Monique on said:

      Oh dear, not ranting just sharing, I’m so sorry, I’m not sure I’m as strong as yourself. You are a true survivor and from what I’ve learnt however doubted is “ it will change, we cannot live amid obstructions forever. “
      I pray for your situation to change and you to break free from what you have endured. Please never give up. You are not alone…

  12. AprilSea on said:

    My Sun is 5 Aquarius, Moon is 7 Gemini and Ascendant 6 Libra.
    Yet, the Pluto is approaching. I am 50 years old, single (Mars 19 Aries, 7th house) living with mom (80 y.o., failing health and all), and somewhat unhappy with my job.. but I admit that job is the only thing that makes me wake up in the morning, I cannot afford to lose it, it is easy to give up but laying in bed all day is not an option. I am tired, alone and depressed. No mojo, no hygge, no ikigai, nothing.
    I can only hope this conjunction Pluton / Sun would not take my Mom away, or my job. 💝

    • Monique on said:

      Ooh I empathise and there is no way to predict however what I learnt is whatever we are holding onto as our “false power” will be removed. We are all powerful without what we cling to in this 3d world. I believe you are All powerful and will survive this conjunction… as I mentioned I lost everything, HOWEVER I’m now so much more successful and “at peace” after I did the dark night of the Soul… bless you Dear Soul, always here 🙏🏿

      • Monique, it great to read your post. Not sure whether to congratulate you on losing everything but grateful that you are in a better place

  13. My world seems to be collapsing. Going through a very dark period. Got divorced last year after 24 years. Unhappy for most. Now feeling guilt and loss especiallyas my ex is getting married again. I am happy for him, but still have a sense of loss. . Unhappy at work. Feel stuck.
    Cried so much my head hurts. Could not sleep. When will this deptession pass? Its so exhausting.
    Last night I actually started toook up euthanasia for depression.

    This afternoon I was told that Pluto is sitting on tbe sun. It iwill be dark for a period but its also a test of my strength and mind.
    I hope I survive. I feel so lost.
