The Sun

The Sun in astrological transits acts as a spotlight on our lives, illuminating our path, identity, and individuality. Its influence in transits is potent; it highlights areas needing growth and development or affirming our existing paths. When the Sun transits another planet in a natal chart, it activates the planet's energies, enhancing or challenging them depending on the nature of the aspect.

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 Sun opposite Pluto transit is a profound astrological event that brings to light the themes of power, control, and transformation. This aspect often signifies a period where your ego and identity (represented by the Sun) are challenged by forces of change and deep psychological truths (symbolized by Pluto). It's a time when power dynamics in relationships become more apparent, bringing issues around dominance and control to the forefront. You may encounter situations where you must confront and perhaps relinquish control or stand firm against external pressures that seem overwhelming or manipulative.

This transit is a powerful catalyst for self-transformation. It invites deep self-examination, urging you to look beneath the surface and explore your subconscious motivations, fears, and desires. The energy of Pluto demands truth and authenticity, often destroying anything that is superficial or not in alignment with your true self. This process, although intense, is geared towards stripping away the unnecessary layers that may cloud your true essence.

what to do

  • Reflect on power dynamics: Examine how you exert control in relationships and where you may feel disempowered.

  • Embrace transformation: Be open to fundamental changes in how you express your identity and authority.

  • Seek deeper truths: Use this time for deep psychological exploration to uncover hidden aspects of yourself.

  • Let go of the past: Release old patterns, especially those related to domination or subservience.

  • Strengthen your resolve: Firm up your boundaries and assert your needs in the face of challenges.

what to avoid

  • Avoid power struggles: Engaging in conflicts about control can be destructive now.

  • Steer clear of manipulation: Both being manipulative and succumbing to manipulation by others.

  • Resist the urge to dominate: Overasserting your will can lead to resistance and isolation.

  • Avoid denial: Ignoring deep-seated issues will only make them more potent.

  • Don't fear change: Resistance to the transformative processes at play can hinder your growth.

During this transit, you might encounter issues related to control, fear of loss, and identity crises. Situations may arise that force you to confront your shadow self, including any manipulative tendencies or areas where you feel powerless.


  1. Acknowledge Your Shadows: Start by acknowledging the aspects of yourself that you may not be proud of, such as desires for control or fears of inadequacy.

  2. Counseling or Therapy: Engage in therapy to better understand and integrate these shadow elements.

  3. Meditation and Reflection: Regular meditation can help soothe the emotional turmoil and provide clarity.

  4. Journaling: Write down your thoughts and feelings to process them more effectively.

  5. Empowerment Practices: Engage in activities that build your sense of personal power in a healthy way, such as martial arts, public speaking, or leadership roles.



  • "I embrace the transformative power within me to create profound positive change."

  • "I release the need for control and open myself to the flow of life."

  • "My personal power is expressed through actions aligned with my deepest truths."
