Pluto is the planet of transformation. It rules the sign of Scorpio, the sign of death, redemption, and divine mysteries. Pluto's energy is mysterious. Its discovery in 1932 associates it symbolically with the creation of the nuclear bomb and the development of psychoanalysis. In ancient mythology, Pluto was considered to be associated with all the aspects of the underworld – Hades, the Greek name for Pluto, was the god of shell. Today, the underworld is synonymous with the Mafia, and the two share many characteristics.
Pluto occupies an important place in the horoscopes of great mystics and spiritual beings, as well as in the theme of certain dictators and tyrants, among them the most ruthless and greedy for power. In psychological terms, Pluto corresponds to the transmutation of instinctive energies into energies which are accessible consciously by the individual's ego. This transmutation, which is never completely controllable, induces a power complex. On the social level, it might be symbolized by the nuclear disaster, the failure of Western man to master the energy of the atom – a power complex gone awry. On the individual level, Pluto is expressed either in a “power complex,” in which instinctive energy is completely transmuted into a personal resource, or as a “failure complex,” in which certain inhibitions prevent the instinctive energy from being transmuted.
As the heart of the solar system and the gravitational center of the travels of the earth and the other planets, the sun is the primordial light, the source of all warmth and life. From the dawn of humanity, it has been worshipped. It has symbolized the absolute power kings and despots yearn for and emulate. The sun king, the nucleus of society, embodied a principle of cohesion and harmony. Various subordinatesâ€”aka planetsâ€”revolved around it. In terms of psychological symbolism, the sun corresponds to the center of an individual, the factor that rules your psyche. Its luminous aspects are usually associated with knowledge and consciousness. As a creator of life, it is related to the image of the mother and the influence of motherhood on an individual's consciousness and ideals. As a result, the sun's position in a birth chart always indicates the way in which an individual will relate to your goals and ideals, what your ambitions and aspirations might involve. A person whose chart is strongly “solar” usually identifies very positively with motherhood. Your personality is friendly, energetic, and creative, with high ideals and a firm determination to accomplish them. You take your own superiority and authority over others for granted, and you have a natural ability to command the attention and admiration of an audience. You are a born leader who enjoys being in the limelight and may behave somewhat theatrically or with dramatic exaggeration. You have definite artistic leanings. The sense of your ideals is evident to you and may lead you to be somewhat self-focused. If ill-directed, your deep aspirations may lead to such faults as egotism, selfishness, or greediness for power.
You are the planet Uranus, ruler of the Zodiac sign of Aquarius.
You are independent and self-sufficient, seeking to stand out from the herd. You crave freedom, and are drawn to spiritual dimensions. You fear being swallowed up, and this leads you to distance yourself from situations or relationships which overwhelm you. You need a lot of space and change, and in relationships you seek excitement and intellectual stimulation. You may rebel against authority, but do so intelligently and with caution, as it can be dangerous to set oneself apart from the structured world of the past. One of the major challenges you face is learning how to use your freedom in a constructive way, both emotionally and relationally.
Brice Hortefeux explains the general meaning of the fact that the eighth house is an area of the sky which is especially important in your theme.
According to tradition, the house ruled by the sign of Scorpio is traditionally associated with death, metamorphosis, and sexuality. It is also related to birth and initiation, and, in more practical terms, inheritances, legacies, and debts. More specifically, the area is related to the idea of partnership resources. It raises such issues as the management of a collective heritage and the administration of assets acquired in association with another person, and the sharing out, psychologically and materially, of these resources in marriage and business partnerships. As a result, three interdependent but fundamental factors inherent to initiating any mutually beneficial partnership are emphasized: trust, management, and responsibility. Obviously, a partnership devoid of trust is dangerous, if not impossible. Only when true trust and mutual confidence are established can a cooperative activity yield profit. The next step is managing the profit (or loss) resulting from the cooperative enterprise: sharing it out equally between the partners, or re-investing it in view of making the enterprise more profitable. The responsibility of the manager (and any participant who is a co-manager) is obviously engaged, because it would be unethical for you to keep any of the wealth generated by the group's activities for your own personal benefit. You must also be responsible enough not to flee in case of difficulty.
Sexuality, which is an asset or resource of the couple, can be thought of according to the same dynamic. If sexual problems arise, if they are not due to physiological problems, they are always related either to a loss of mutual confidence, to mismanagement of the physical and psychological exchange, or to an insufficient sense of duty on the part of one of the partners. Due to the significance of this area in your astral chart, you may encounter one of these issues. It will be vital for you to become truly conscious of what is at stake in your partnerships. As a result, you will have to evaluate the wealth you acquire as a result of your relationships and measure the power conferred upon you by your participation in intimate, social, or professional relationships.
The third house is an area of the sky which is especially important in Brice Hortefeux's theme.
