Moon Conjunct, Square, Opposite Pluto

moon pluto aspects

A individual with the Moon conjunct, square or opposite Pluto is deep feeling and possesses emotions so intense that others may be subject to their jealousy, secretive nature, and be drawn into their self-controlled personality. 

Many times, the person involves themselves in magnetic attractions which are profoundly sexual and totally compelling. In actuality, they often need partners to impact and transform them in some way. Commonly, they have very difficult relationships throughout their lives, and it usually concerns feelings coming out from shadowy places from others. However, it is also believed by psychologists that we must select someone who shares the same or similar conflict.

Moon-Pluto individuals keep their emotions under control, and they are also not likely to waste themselves on casual lovers. The person is noted for having a possessive and absorbing nature, however, behind all of this is often a fear they will destroy or lose a loved one. It is hard for them to understand the root cause for these powerful and destructive emotions. The bonds they form with others are often all-consuming, but sometimes this overbearing nature also chases away the people they need the most. They are so emotional, obsessive and intense that many would live only for a partner and even die for them. However, people who fear abandonment often cope by abandoning others so that they are never vulnerable. Power is also a highly effective method of ensuring safety since they are frightened of humiliation and can be consumed by fear. Above all, total commitment is what they really need, no pretending, just somebody who genuinely cares.

Individuals rarely live lightly and the aspects often describes a familiarity with and/or an ability to process crisis, sometimes due to early brushes with tragedy, death or mental illness in the family. Not afraid to confront and demolish, Moon-Pluto skills can include the empowering of others, the transforming of family situations and the regeneration of homes and gardens.

A soul in possession of the Moon in aspect to Pluto may also experience emotional blockages inhibiting the sharing of their deepest selves. Early trust issues may make them feel bad, ashamed or frightened about letting themselves be that vulnerable again. They may be very protective about their emotions, heavily guarding against manipulation. Yet, when intense emotions accumulate, the pressure to release them can become so strong forcing their way out compulsively, through violent confrontations which create sudden and dramatic life changes.

A tendency for manipulation is also sometimes evidenced and this is usually used as a means of keeping others close. Even though they can seem quite successful in the area of relating and particularly in understanding the psychology of emotions they can also feel powerless. Moon-Pluto easily feels humiliated because all emotional experiences are taken so very seriously and cut deeply. Every emotional encounter is a life-or-death experience and sometimes comfort and intimacy may be used manipulatively. The more negative types can also be frequently threatening in order to get their way, burying others in a mountain of guilt so they can achieve their aims.

Any contact between the Moon and Pluto creates emotional disturbance, physical illness, and the undercurrent of hidden emotions just below the surface of the personal life that are highly dramatized. Through long-repression, these feelings make their way up to their surface with far greater power than they normally would if they were not forced underground. Emotions are frequently over analyzed, but this helps them get to the root cause of something and it usually forces issues with close ones releasing pent up energy in the process. Many others will view Moon-Pluto episodes as an irrational overreaction and dramatization of pain. However, in their defence, Moon-Pluto people need to say what they feel more often, as they live for emotional authenticity.

An individual with the Moon in aspect to Pluto is often engrossed in esoteric fields, occult, mysteries and other metaphysical subjects. The need for rehabilitation in a individual’s life, physical therapy and healing is usually also of deep interest. They can definitely handle others strong emotions, without feeling overwhelmed; there is nothing loved more than transformation. Moreover, they have an investigative and self-exploring nature, and survival really is key in their personal life. They need to understand their loved ones at a deep level, and can be found exploring the hidden contents of a lover’s psyche. Moon-Pluto people love digging and have such a demanding nature, one which never seems to give up, but they simply seek emotional depth, courage and a need to feel everything.
