I have Pluto squaring my Moon. I can say that this provides a mother who is suffocating and very possessive. I loved my mother, but she and I fought a lot over her trying to control everything I did.
With this aspect, my emotions are very intense and there is even paranoia involved with it. It makes life difficult sometimes because I can't take anything lightly. I try to reason with myself but in the end, Pluto wins out.
This aspect can make relationships with females in general difficult for a person. It is like a constant power struggle with them. I can say that Pluto does not make things easy when it aspects a close planet.
I have a moon pluto opposition square mercury.
I have to think quietly before I speak the Nagasaki.
I also can read a room like nobody's business. Which is usually none of my business.
Moon pluto takes being a lifeguard to the special forces level. Don't even try to drown on my watch.
And yeah, we have mommy issues.
But, I also have some of the most incredible positive female role model coaches & amazing strong men who nurture (shout out love to the Scorpio dudes)
It's a double edged sword the opposition. And I feel it gets easier as I get older.
It's funny how that happens: when something obvious clicks like you never saw it before. Reading that quote did the same for me.
"Pluto may desire to control emotions, so much so that it is difficult to feel safe enough to be vulnerable, relaxed, and open with others."
I have this aspect. I never saw myself as trying to control my emotions. I just thought it was that I like to keep to myself more than I like being with people. Reading this though, I see that keeping to myself is exactly how I control my emotions, which definitely erupt when I am around people. I just get swamped - too much input coming in all at once. I have to take a good chunk of time after being with people to settle back down again.
Thanks for posting this, Placebo Essence!
I found a brilliant text about Pluto in my native language. To paraphrase: Pluto issues are infectious. It is not always visible but something is always transferred. Pluto person always leaves a mark or an imprint on another. Pluto person needs to often ask themselves: What imprint do they want to leave on people? Lonely people often make others feel lonely, like in case of ghosting. Vengeful person may create spiteful people. It is like passing the torch. I agree with sk8samurai though that there is other side of the coin, empowerment and bringing the best in others is infectious too. People who feel inspired by another go out into the world and inspire others. In both cases Pluto person leaves a legacy. I had almost exact Moon-Pluto opposition in one of my Solar Returns. That year I met someone who was deeply hurt by his spouse and directed his vindictive feelings towards me. That was tough.
My Pisces moon trines my venus/neptune/jupiter stellium in Scorpio with the pluto in sextile from Virgo.
It's a good balance point all the Scorp, but gosh I can be permeable.
If I don't get my down time from absorbing other people's energy I go wiggy...
When I was little I would play by myself in my mom's walk in closet. She still talks about that to this day.
