What Is The Difference Between A Planet Transiting And A Planet Being Transited?

Pluto ManHi, Elsa

I realized that the new moon this month will fall right on my natal pluto. I did some searching and while I found a lot of info about pluto transits, I couldn’t find anything about transits to natal pluto. I realized that I really don’t know if there is likely any difference between the two (other than duration).

What is likely to be the difference between planet A transiting a natal planet B versus planet B transiting natal planet A? Or is there any?

Hi, Wondering. This is a good question because it confuses a lot of people.

When two planets combine in any way, the keywords to describe the mash-up would be the same regardless of which planet was transiting and which was being transited. However we can derive information beyond “keywords” by analyzing a transit.

Your natal chart is a map of you.  Think of it as your home. It’s fixed.

The transiting planet is a visitor who comes to the door…or actually penetrates, depending.

Picture it. I’m at home with my dogs. Some Jehovah’s Witnesses come to the door. My dogs start barking. The people on the porch are adding their energy to my natal situation.

These people represent the “transiting planet”. I cannot change the fact they’re at my door, but what happens next depends on how I handle the situation.

Specific to your situation, the moon will sensitize Pluto.  You may feel dread, your may feel empowered, you may kill your feelings or whatever it is you do.  But what’s being impacted by the transit is your depth / your subconscious / your instincts.

Here’s an example of your transit: a person may want to die. Then something happens and all the sudden, they want to live. They don’t know why. Pluto doesn’t chat much.

  1. “Picture it. I’m at home with my dogs. Some Jehovah’s Witnesses come to the door. My dogs start barking. The people on the porch are adding their energy to my natal situation.”
    Great explanation!!
    This new moon in front of my treasury, Mars and Pluto ll whistle at my Venus from a distance while Jupiter is just looking at it sweetly. Saturn on its way with a Rose plant :p

    • They always do that. Possibly with new moon arriving to Venus. Whistles ll be a bit louder, Jupiter ll be lil more sweet out of insecurity and saturn ll start running instead of walking.

  2. This is a true story of the new moon conjunct my Pluto. I was TWEAKED OUT OF MY MIND, heading into this.

    I emailed an astrologer I knew at the time – he reads here. I told him there was going to be big news…something HUGE going to happened that day…and the year the person was born (due to Pluto). They would have my Pluto, see?

    Later that evening, Princess Di was killed. Pluto sq the New moon in Virgo conjunct Mercury.

    I was shaking like a leaf when I sent that email. After it happened…well that was it. I relaxed. Sorry, but I did.

    • It’s squaring my pluto too. Albeit with by a wide margin. I have been telling here that I’m anticipating something unknown. Then I wrote it off thinking Sat-Nep square effect.
      “what’s being impacted by the transit is your depth / your subconscious / your instincts.”
      Given its wide, it’s perhaps not so deep. Or is it?

  3. Yeah I realize I said the wrong thing in my message. If the new moon was conjunct my pluto I would be pretty old. It’s exactly trine. But what you said makes sense regarding how to look at it. This is actually helpful in looking at a few things coming up.

      • No, but you can. It would be a picture you uploaded on gravatar to represent you.

        Sorry for the typo (now edited). Auto-correct.

  4. So, if planet A transits natal planet B, sign and house, it will be a guest and actions will be with planet B, sign and house under transit in a style of planet A, how I understood. But what will be with natal planet A? Will it fill this transit?
