Pluto Conjunct Ascendant in Medical Astrology
or Pluto in 1st House
In your journey through life, you may experience some kind of transforming experience, perhaps more than one. You are probably very intense and passionate about certain issues. You can become obsessed about many things, which could include anything from plastic surgery, psychotherapy, politics, money, or finding the meaning of life. You may encounter several dramatic physical or emotional events in your journey that can have a profound effect upon you and lead you in new directions.
You are driven by powerful energies and have the ability to tackle projects requiring an enormous exertion of energy, but by the same time you need to be aware that you are after all, only human, and are subject to physical limitations like everyone else.
Some of the effects of stress that you could encounter include possible problems with the endocrine, or reproductive systems, or mental illnesses such as obsessive-compulsive disorder, schizophrenia or bi-polar disorder. It might also be that people with whom you are close, for example family members, experience one or more of these conditions, which has a profound effect upon your own psychology.
This is powerful place for Pluto and you may find that you intimidate others, perhaps without realising it. You have a tremendously powerful psychic presence and need to learn to own this power in a way that is not destructive to yourself or to those around you. Try to use this dynamic energy to transform yourself and your environment in positive and creative ways. You are a survivor and have the capacity to reinvent yourself many times over, but you can also be an agent for transforming the world.
