Pluto: The Transformer
In mythology, Pluto is the dark and powerful god of the underworld. He ruled over the dead and was the keeper of souls. Ultimately, all mortals were destined to meet with Pluto – death being inevitable. His will was irrevocable – having entered the underworld there was no return. Psychologically Pluto relates to our capacity for regeneration and renewal. Every so often we must end that which has becomes old and outworn and clear the way for new life. Our ongoing growth and development necessitates a process of transformation. We need to change – to let go of the past and begin afresh.
Pluto in the 4th House
Pluto’s house placement points to where we are fated to undergo a process of transformation and renewal so that we may tap a deeper truth.
To develop a sense of family and belonging we need to open ourselves to others. By letting down our guard, and allowing others into our life, we establish the close knit relations that form the basis of any family or community.
With Pluto in the fourth house, the individual must turn within and establish a clear connection with how they feel. Through opening up on an emotional level, they allow themselves to enter into a deeper relationship with their immediate relations and close friends.
