What should a person, who has a very non-Plutonian, non-Scorpio chart, expect when heavy Pluto stuff shows up in transits, progressions or return charts, for a number of years? Is there a common pattern you see, that people of this kind typically fall into? How do I lessen the feeling of despair?
Thanks a lot from India
Great question! I pulled up your chart, wondering if you might be more Plutonian-flavored than you realize. Pluto lies low in your chart, but the planet is in Scorpio so it’s hardly “weak”. You probably have more affinity with this energy than you realize.
I don’t think there is a usual way that people react when introduced to an energy that’s relatively foreign to them. It’s the exact opposite. Each person is an individual. This is particularly evident during a prolonged period of stress, which is what outer planet transits produce. I’ll give you an example.
Christopher Reeve (Superman) had an accident that left him paralyzed. His wife remained at his side. The man I was dating at the time, a Scorpio, found this unfathomable. He said if he were in her shoes, he’d have been out of there the next day. He had a lot of Aquarius in his chart. Detach from the bad thing!
Let’s say this is a Pluto transit for the spouse in this situation. The accident happens; it’s out of their hands. Both lives are lost and set to be transformed but the individual has the power to choose how they respond.
You asked about despair. Pluto does not spell D-E-S-P-A-I-R. It’s energy. Energy is neutral until directed. (See Bitch vs the Anti-Bitch). The despair you feel is personal. Pluto in Capricorn transiting your moon. It’s possible to work with this transit.
Just imagine you have a rock. You’re going to have it awhile. You can tie the thing around you neck and sink down, or you can do something else with it.
Judging by your chart, I would expect a good result from this transit once you figure out that you can do more than just endure pain. You can work with your pain an if you do, you’ll be richly rewarded.
