Pluto being the first dominant in Jed Elliott’s astral chart signifies that he is a powerful and transformational figure.
Pluto is the planet of transformation. It rules the sign of Scorpio, the sign of death, redemption, and divine mysteries. Jed Elliott’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 Jed Elliott’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.
The sun is the second dominant in Jed Elliott’s astral chart. In the following paragraph, we shall indicate the significance of this fact:
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 subordinates—aka planets—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. Jed Elliott’s personality is friendly, energetic, and creative, with high ideals and a firm determination to accomplish them. Jed Elliott takes his own superiority and authority over others for granted, and has a natural ability to command the attention and admiration of an audience. Jed Elliott is a born leader who enjoys being in the limelight and may behave somewhat theatrically or with dramatic exaggeration.
Jed Elliott has definite artistic leanings. The sense of Jed Elliott’s ideals is evident to Jed Elliott and may lead to Jed Elliott being somewhat self-focused. If ill-directed, Jed Elliott’s deep aspirations may lead to such faults as egotism, selfishness, or greediness for power.
Mercury is the third dominant in Jed Elliott’s astral chart. In the following paragraph, we shall indicate the significance of this fact:
According to Greek myth, Mercury (or Hermes, whose name derives etymologically from the piles of rocks which marked trails and guided travelers) was the messenger of the gods. He carried orders from Olympus to the mortals on Earth. The child of the illegitimate union of Zeus with Maia, Mercury was born “unknown to the immortal gods” and had to win his place among them by trickery, cleverness, and cunning. This is why he became the vagabond deity of travelers and wanderers.
He is the instinctive foe of the settled who see him as an outcast roaming on the outskirts of society: a pariah, a thief, and a swindler. As ruler of the sign of Gemini, the Twins, he symbolizes the brother—the alter-ego who teaches us as much as we teach him and is associated with adolescence, a period of intense intellectual discovery.
Mercury thus symbolizes lively, sparkling wit, mobility in any form, mental exchange, and interaction. As a result, a person strongly ruled by Mercury is quite likely to be clever and skillful.
If Mercury is “afflicted” in one’s chart, their intellectual velocity may sometimes become mere mental hyperactivity.
In any case, these skills are a great resource in the social realm. Jed Elliott communicates easily and effectively, orally or in writing. His ability to unite and transmit would be a good resource in diplomatic or commercial endeavors.
The third house is an area of the sky which is especially important in Jed Elliott’s theme. In the following paragraph, we shall explain the general meaning of this fact.
