The Pluto In The Signs.

clear.gif (807 bytes) Because Pluto spends about 21 years in each sign (varying from12 to 31 years), the meanings do not have a distinct personal meaning (except through distinguishing groups of people from groups of people born in other Pluto signs. They do, however, have a personal meaning in relation to the Houses and Aspects.

See also: Planets In The Signs for a list of other planets in the signs.

As with all the planets in the signs, the aphorisms are written in isolation of the rest of the chart and where necessary it is assumed the sign is in its natural house, Aries in the First House, etc. On this page, there are 12 sets of aphorisms, whereas the full set is 144. Later, further information will be added.

The dates are approximate, partly because Pluto goes out and back in a sign during periods of retrograde. For a given human, there are some people with these configurations that we will never meet! The time between two identical signs is 248 years! This means the average human being will experience only 5 or 6 of these configurations, and perhaps encounter people who were born in an additional 3 signs, depending on the time spent in each sign. 

The keyword for Pluto is to transform.

  • eliminate
  • purge
