Pluto is the planet of transformation, power, and rebirth. Its influence is subtle but profound, bringing to light the deeper, darker forces at work in our lives. Pluto’s transits often involve intense emotional experiences, power struggles, or confrontations with our shadows. These transits are transformative, forcing us to confront and change fundamental aspects of our lives and selves.

type of aspect:

An opposition occurs when planets are about 180 degrees apart, directly across from each other on the zodiac wheel. This aspect can create a pull between opposing forces or interests, requiring a balance or integration of these energies. Oppositions often highlight areas where we need to understand and manage opposing viewpoints or conflicting needs. Planets in opposition are sometimes projected onto other people or there is a tension between people related to two planets (representing their inner qualities).


The Saturn opposite Pluto transit is a profound cosmic event that challenges us to confront deep-seated power dynamics and issues of control in our lives. This aspect often coincides with a period of intense pressure and transformation. Saturn, representing structure, responsibility, and endurance, directly opposes Pluto, the planet of transformation, power, and rebirth. This can manifest as a clash between old structures or ways of being and the need for a significant overhaul or regeneration. The energy of this transit forces us to look at the areas of our lives where we may be exerting too much control or, conversely, where we may feel powerless. It invites a deep, often uncomfortable, confrontation with reality, pushing for a rebirth or a profound change in the structures of our personal or collective lives.

what to do

  • Engage in self-reflection to understand your relationship with power and control.

  • Be open to transformation. Allow old structures or outdated ways of being to fall away.

  • Strengthen your resilience by establishing healthy boundaries.

  • Seek empowerment through personal development and overcoming fears.

  • Practice patience and persistence. Deep transformation takes time.

what to avoid

  • Resisting change. Avoid clinging to outdated structures out of fear.

  • Manipulative behaviors. Steering clear of power plays in relationships.

  • Overwhelming yourself with negativity. Don’t dwell on what feels unchangeable.

  • Ignoring emotional responses. Don’t bottle up feelings that need expression.

  • Isolating yourself. Avoid cutting off support systems that can help you through this time.

The transit can bring up issues related to control, such as feeling overly controlled or controlling, struggles with authority, and fears related to powerlessness or domination. It can also surface deep-seated issues from the subconscious, requiring confrontation and resolution.


  1. Acknowledge the need for change. Recognize which areas of your life are demanding transformation.

  2. Confront your fears. Use therapeutic practices like journaling or counseling to address fears of powerlessness or control.

  3. Empower yourself. Engage in activities that strengthen your sense of agency and personal power.

  4. Release old patterns. Practice letting go of behaviors that no longer serve you.

  5. Build supportive structures. Create habits and relationships that support your growth and transformation.



  • "I embrace transformation and release what no longer serves me."

  • "I am empowered by my challenges; they lead to my growth."

  • "I build structures in my life that support my true path and well-being."
