When the Sun and Pluto are in the challenging aspect of a square, it is difficult to ignore, and like everything in life, how we experience this energy depends so much on how willing we are to surrender to what Pluto is asking of us.
When we face our shadows, that means the sun “has our back” and is supporting us even though we can’t see that… we have to zoom out in order to see the full picture of that support. It is OUR shadow that we’re seeing. What do we know about shadows? They generally are distorted, not realistic, can fool us (shadow puppets), usually look scarier than they are.
The Pluto square Pluto transit is one of these initiations-in-common that can serve up some of the most drastic life changes between the ages of 36-61. It’s a wide age range, yes, but most will experience this transit in their middle to late 30s or early 40s.
Bottom line, we are confronted with any taboos we have tried to sweep under the rug. Something in the intimate spaces in our heart has reached critical mass and must see the light of day. Our defenses crumble. Any attempts to hold them at bay are no longer successful.
Sometimes we have aspects in the sky that show up in the natal charts of generations of people. These are called inter-generational aspects and represent the seed of a major shift in the consciousness of humanity.
The Sun person will be endlessly mesmerised by the Pluto person, almost hypnotized. However, the draw and attraction is quite potent for both people. The Pluto person usually has the upper hand, so ideally you want the Pluto person to be as emotionally and spiritually mature as possible.
