How to know if in you have a Pluto dominant birth chart?
Well, you definitely feel it, even if you are not aware of it on a conscious level.
This planet has a very strong influence in astrology. Even though Pluto is a small celestial object far from us, it has a super concentrated energy. Pluto is able to scale anything to the extreme!
Knowing this, you can expect quite a few things to go wild.
Some of the things you have to deal with if you have Pluto strong in your natal chart:
- intense emotions
- power struggles
- deep thoughts
- a natural talent for psychology
- regeneration skills
- passionate emotional whirlwinds.
So far away from the Sun, Pluto is an infamous planet, covered in darkness and mystery. It is one of the planets with the worst reputation in astrology. This is mainly because of the intensity it brings: intense violence, intense transformation, intense pain. And the list goes on. This planet really knows how to turn up the volume, no matter if it is passion or violence in question. Actually, Pluto can manifest in a brutally violent way.
In astrology, Pluto is never an easy planet to deal with.
It got its name after the god of the underworld in Roman mythology. This already gives you an idea what to expect here.
No one knows the underworld better than people with a Pluto dominant birth chart.
Very often, they have to face cruelty at a young age, some of them even in their families. These early experiences make you aware of the darkness, and you cannot be as carefree as someone who never met Pluto.
However, being a Plutonian can be a great blessing, both for you and for the world. Once a Pluto dominant person works through their own pain and sorts out their issues, they can help others do so.
Pluto has a very strong healing power, which is its highest manifestation. Actually, this is the real task of Pluto in astrology, not to control and be obsessed. For example, surgeons usually have a Pluto dominant natal chart. This planet is not just about death, it’s also about regeneration and rebirth. Pluto wants you to level up and evolve into a better version of yourself.
Handling intense Pluto dominant energy in the birth chart is challenging. Perhaps this is the reason why many young Plutonians struggle in life. The good news is that with age, it becomes easier, and you learn how to deal with this infamous planet in astrology.
What Makes Pluto Dominant in the Birth Chart?
If Pluto touches a lot of personal points in your horoscope, you have a Pluto dominant birth chart. Sometimes people with Pluto dominant planet are called Plutonians. If you are into astrology, you might have heard this term thrown around. It refers to someone who has a lot of Pluto-personal planet aspects/
So, how to check if you have your Pluto as a dominant planet in your natal chart?
Personal points in the natal chart include the ascendant, the Midheaven (and all the house cusps), the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus (even Mars, but Mars is slower). These objects move quickly in the sky, and their position in your birth chart is highly unique to you.
(The outer planets make generational aspects with each other and with Pluto, so their influence is more on the level of generations, not on a personal level.)
Pluto in aspect with these personal points makes your chart Pluto dominant. The more aspects, the heavier the influence.
Pluto in Aspect With Personal Points
Pluto conjunct the ascendant or Midheaven makes this planet very strong in your chart. With your Pluto here, it is located in one of the Gauquelin sectors in your natal chart. Planets in these sectors become particularly powerful.
Pluto in other aspect to the ascendant or MC give a lot of Plutonian influence, too, but the conjunction is the most powerful aspect here.
Pluto and the Moon don’t get along very well. Pluto in aspect with the Moon suggests that you have mysterious and dark emotional nature. The Moon shows your emotions and intuition in the birth chart.
Pluto in contact with Mercury suggests a deep thinker. You have an innate understanding of the human nature, and you are capable of getting to the heart of the matter. Pluto-Mercury aspects indicate a probing mind.
In the natal chart, Pluto-Venus aspects are passionate and intense. When you are attracted to someone or something, there is a lot of emotional intensity, sometimes even obsession.
Pluto in aspect with other planets (Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune) is not as personal, they form generational aspects with Pluto, the slowest moving planet of astrology.
If Pluto is in aspect with a lot of personal points, you have a Pluto dominant birth chart.
Usually, one or two hard aspects (the conjunction, square, opposition) make you more of a Plutonian than one or two harmonious aspects (sextile, trine). But if there are three or more harmonious aspects between Pluto and personal planets, you are definitely a Pluto dominant.
In astrology, Pluto is the ruling planet of the sign Scorpio. An emphasized Scorpio adds Plutonian energy to your personality, too, just like several placements in the eighth house (which is the house of Scorpio in the natural chart). Scorpio rising and Scorpio Moon score two points on this test.
When talking about planets in astrology, they all have both positive and negative qualities. Even though their position and aspects in the natal chart influence to a certain extent whether they manifest in a constructive or destructive way, remember that we have free will.
How a planet actually plays out in your life (how you choose to use its qualities) depends on you.

Pluto Dominant People: Intensity and Depth
Pluto dominant people don’t have it easy. They have deeper and more intense feelings than those around them.
They often feel misunderstood by those around them.
In addition, Pluto gives a deep mind, too, especially with Pluto-Mercury aspects. You crave real conversations, the fluff doesn’t satisfy you. You get easily bored of small talks. You want to discuss secrets, mysteries, sex, death, topics that most people find bizarre.
Pluto equals depth in astrology. Where you see Pluto, you can expect to get to the bottom of the problem. People who have Pluto as their dominant planet want the truth and nothing else. They will not settle until they have found it. You want to break things down and see what it is about instead of taking them at face value.
Pluto is the detective in astrology. With Pluto as the dominant planet in your birth chart, you are a born investigator. You are instinctively drawn to secrets, and you enjoy learning about other people’s secrets.
However, you don’t like to give away your own secrets. Plutonians are mysterious and hard to figure out, exactly because of their awareness of how vulnerable secrets can make you. You are reserved by nature, dear Plutonian, and perhaps it’s better this way.
But no matter how badly you want to keep some things private, people can sense the influence of Pluto on you.
There are two ways the mysterious air around Pluto dominants are seen by others: they are either repelled and don’t want to touch you with a ten-feet pole or they are incredibly drawn to you. There is no in-between with this planet.
Pluto Dominant People and Transformation
You have nine lives, like cats. But you also die nine times, too, if not ninety-nine times.
Pluto is the planet of transformation in astrology. Not some subtle shade-by-shade fading into a different color. Pluto is a rather intense transformation, from white to black in a moment or vice versa.
Pluto dominant people are good friends, or at least old acquaintances with the transformation process. They have experienced it many times, and they know that they will experience it over and over again. In their lives, its a pattern that repeats itself often.
Pluto can shake up your world, turn it upside down, and make you think again about who you really are.
Abuse, abandonment, power struggles, you have seen it all. And you survived it.
If a Plutonian uses their talents for good, they have the potential to become a person well versed in the healing arts, so to speak. You can become a very wise person who can tremendously help others who are still in the process. Besides being intelligent, you are street-smart, too.
Because Pluto dominants went through a lot of things, they instinctively recognize others who also went through a lot. This planet gives you an X-ray vision, seeing under the surface, where the real information lies. Psychology is associated with Pluto.
Pluto knows that life is a never-ending transformation. So do people with a Pluto dominant planet in their birth charts. You die and you are born again as a whole new person. Even though the results can be beneficial, the process itself is extremely painful most of the time.
Trauma and Pluto Dominant Planet in the Birth Chart
The higher octave of Mars, Pluto is the planet of trauma. When you meet Pluto, there is pain, often sudden and intense. With a lot of this planet’s energy in your birth chart, you know the shadow side of life very well.
Pluto dominant people didn’t have it easy. They often grew up in a violent environment where they couldn’t never be sure about what the future holds for them. Other Plutonians experienced sexual violence, or other forms of violence, often related to power struggles.
Pluto has a terrifying side, representing the unleashed evil in humans. Through history, Pluto is connected with the dying of masses in the wars of the twentieth century. It was discovered shortly before the second World War, in 1930.
Sometimes Pluto is brutally violent, while in some other cases, it’s refined and silver-tongued. How this planet manifests in your life depends on many things. Pluto has a thousand faces.
The eighth house (which is connected with Pluto through Scorpio) governs near-death experiences. If the chart as a whole supports it, Pluto dominants can have a few of them through their life. However, one of the benefits of Pluto is its legendary regenerative power, so it’s not that easy for you to die by accident.
However, Pluto dominants are prone to depression and feeling alone. Their trust was betrayed in the past, and they have to learn to form healthy relationships that support the healing process. If they fail to do so, they become isolated (this doesn’t have to be physical isolation, being lonely on the inside is just as bad).
Plutonians and a Sneak-Peek into their Love Life
Pluto dominant people are incredibly sexy. There is an erotic charisma to them, perhaps because of their mysteriousness, perhaps because of the passion in them, but they are attractive.
Sexuality is very important to Pluto dominants, but they often use it as a tool. They usually have above-average sexual power. Plutonian energies mixed with Venus suggests a femme fatale character, someone who has talent for seduction, and actually, thrives on it. This is somewhat similar to Venus in Scorpio.
In a relationship, when a Plutonian is in love, they have very intense feelings. They want all or nothing, but preferably, all.
If a Pluto dominant person lives the negative manifestation of this planet, they can be jealous and possessive in a relationship. Pluto is an infamous planet for a reason, and if you don’t take care, you can live out the negative qualities of it.
Plutonians are not easy for others to understand. They were usually badly hurt (but this is by no means an excuse), and they learned that it’s the best to keep their guards on.
A hard nut to crack, right?
People with a Pluto dominant chart are very defensive. They thoroughly test you before they trust you. In the past, they experienced betrayal, and they don’t want to make the same mistake again.
In your life, Plutonian person, relationships are a mirror. You learn the most about yourself and the world through love. These experiences are not always pleasant, though.
Many Plutonians had a childhood full of memories of being unwanted or in some way, their parents were ashamed of them. They learned that they there is something wrong with them.
In extreme cases, they experienced even abuse or abandonment in their family, but here there are more indicators in the natal chart. They had to face the dark side of human nature at an early age. Your soul is full of deep wounds.
Besides intensity and obsession, Pluto wants control, too. Here we enter the realm of Plutonian relationships in astrology, where power struggles are taken to a whole new level.
Plutonians on a lower level of consciousness tend to use people. They might enter a relationship because they like their reflection in the other person. However, there is a possibility for very deep connection in love.
Pluto Dominants and Power
Power struggles are an organic part of a Pluto dominant’s life.
When discussing Pluto in astrology, you cannot miss the fact that Pluto wants power. So do people who have this planet strong in their charts, no matter what they say. However, this is not necessary a bad thing: power is neutral, it’s up to you to use it the right way.
Plutonians strive to become powerful, especially if there is a connection between the Midheaven and Pluto in the birth chart. This planet wants domination, it’s simply the nature of Pluto (and Pluto dominant people, too). You remember the pain of being controlled, and you want to avoid it by trying to control others.
Pluto has a lot to do with wealth in astrology (the word plutocracy itself tells a lot about this planet). Some Plutonians are hungry for worldly power, and they end up in politics or in other type of positions of power.
But their power doesn’t have to be in the traditional sense of the word. Plutonians are great at controlling not just others, but themselves, too.
They usually have an in-depth self-knowledge, and they own both their good and bad traits.
Those with a Pluto dominant chart are extremely authentic, and this makes people come to them. People are often obsessed with them actually. If a Plutonian seems to control you, it was you who willingly gave them the control.
With Pluto dominant in your chart, there is a tendency to be selfish.
When it gets out of control, Pluto can be extremely destructive. If you fail to handle this planet properly, it can set your life on fire. If you hold a lot of Pluto’s energy in yourself, you know that Pluto can turn the world into chaos.
The best way to minimize the negative influence of Pluto is through developing self-awareness and your spiritual side. You own what you have been through, and you are self-confident about your attitude.
Plutonians understand people very well. They know what makes you tick, and sometimes they are able to leverage this knowledge. Through their talent for psychology, they usually get what they want in a relationship.
