Enigmatic and paradoxical, Pluto functions subversively and invisibly
to transform by elimination and metamorphosis. Pluto operates
with extreme power, and when it manifests it usually causes one
to feel out of control.
Pluto in a chart shows how power of any
kind will be exerted. Pluto always compels and it can compel
to high, virtuous achievement, or to villainous behaviour within
or outside the law.
Pluto causes hidden and subterranean states
to break forth and erupt. Pluto has rulership over volcanoes
from which molten lava erupts, destroying everything in its path.
But later the lava helps build a rich soil for plant growth.
Like earthquakes and volcanoes, Pluto brings about a climax in
the life with much disturbance and upheaval, followed by calmer
and more wholesome conditions. This may occur in daily affairs

transcendence of desires (physical, material, emotional) for inner

and intensify those things that that planet represents. Pluto
is not only the significator of secrets and hidden things in general
but is also responsible for the uncovering and surfacing of whatever
