Why Is Planet Pluto So Important In Astrology?

It might be small, but Pluto is one of the most important players in the world of astrology. Want to learn more about the Ice Planet? Our very own astrologer, Susan Taylor, spills its juiciest secrets, from its symbolism to its mythology! Discover what this planet represents means and what impact it has on you and your life.

Discovered in 1930, Pluto was classified as a planet for almost eighty years before being demoted to dwarf planet in 2006. Interestingly enough, it’s orbit of the Sun can vary massively (between 4 and 7 billion kilometers) meaning there are periods where it is in fact closer to the Sun than Neptune. Its diameter is a mere 2370 kilometers- making it two thirds the size of the Moon. It is known as an ice dwarf due to the fact that its surface is mainly composed of rock and icy water.

In mythology, Pluto is known as the God of the Underworld

The Roman god Pluto (Hades in Greek mythology) is the son of Saturn, and like his siblings, he was devoured by his father. That said, his brother Jupiter freed him following a battle with Saturn, and the world was divided between the brothers as a result. Jupiter took control of the heavens, Neptune the oceans, and Pluto the Underworld.

Pluto is often depicted in mythology wielding a scepter and riding a chariot. He has a thick beard and occasionally wears an invisible helmet. His three-headed dog that guards the Underworld, Cerberus, can also be seen from time to time in artworks.

Why Pluto is so essential in astrology: It's the bringer of transformation

It might no longer be considered as an official planet, but its influences in the astrology world cannot be ignored. Like Uranus, it is known as a slow planet, meaning it spends extremely long periods in zodiac signs. When Pluto happens to be in your sign, you should expect power given to your subconscious mind, instincts, and fears. It symbolizes the unknown in the shadows, sexuality, and the unknown.

When in relation to other planets, it has a tendency to amplify the abilities of its fellow astral bodies. For example, when in relation to the Sun, Pluto urges fresh charisma and ambition. That said, if the Sun and Pluto are badly connected then anxieties and fear will tighten their grips.

What’s more, Pluto’s slow movement can bring about unbelievable transformation. The dwarf planet embodies the concept of death and rebirth, in the same way a phoenix is born from its own ashes. If Pluto’s in motion then it’d be wise to continue through, because things will always be calm following the storm.
