Four unique stages of evolution have been identified by evolutionary astrology; these stages correspond to various rungs on the spiritual ladder of life. Pluto’s sign and house placement in the composite chart correlate with the desires held by both partners in the couple’s former lives. Pluto’s polarity point (opposite sign and house) reveals the evolution of the relationship as well as its current purpose. The phasal link between Mars and Pluto indicates how they will eventually achieve their current life goals. Here are some examples of how Pluto operates in the composite chart taken from the book: Pluto: The Soul’s Evolution Through Relationships, Volume 2
Pluto in the 3rd House
A couple with composite Pluto in the 3rd house will have themes in their former life relationship that focus on a couple who wished to deepen their partnership via intensive studies of one another’s psyche in order to grow together. Deep and passionate discussions can occur, and such exchanges of communication will elicit responses from one or both of them who are adamantly committed to previously held ideas, thoughts, or beliefs that explain their positions and keep them safe. During the previous lifetime, these dynamics brought the partnership to a grinding halt. The danger in this type of relationship arises when one partner seeks to exert control over the other’s line of thinking. Attempting to influence and manipulate the mind of the other in order to fulfil a desire may have been tried by one or both parties. As a result, there has been dishonest communication. The power of persuasion used to conceal a deeper objective, negative karma is generated. If “brainwashing” is the consequence, it results in a feeling of hostility and disgust towards the other. In rare circumstances, Pluto in the 3rd house or the sign of Gemini may represent two persons who had previously been tied to one another through the fact that they were siblings. Furthermore, the typical boundaries that exist between siblings have been breached, and there has been sexual intercourse. The connection has been kept secret from other family members in some cases since it has been agreed upon by both sides. If the contact was made without the permission of the other person, the situation symbolizes an older sibling controlling the psyche of a younger brother or sister.
Pluto in the 11th House
Pluto in the 11th house might indicate the reincarnation of two extremely close friends from a previous lifetime. A group or other common interests may have brought them together. In some situations, they wished to go from being extremely close and like-minded friends into the framework of intimacy and eventually into a relationship with each other. They have both desired to rebel against their suffocating life circumstances, and this has brought them closer together than they could have imagined. As a result of this transformation, many relationships have seen a significant shift from friendship to intimacy, with severe consequences in many situations. Where they formerly helped each other as friends who could view one other objectively, they have now lost all of that objectivity, and the relationship has come to an end. In addition to these couples, many others who have composite Pluto in the 11th house have changed their connection from one of closeness to one of friendship. In this way, they have gained a better objective understanding of one another, or they have developed a strong emotional attachment to one another and pledged to remain close friends in following lives. Alternatively, there may have been a sudden loss or ending of the relationship/friendship in a previous lifetime. These events might have occurred for a number of reasons; one party could have had a covert goal or motivation, or one could have had an intention to harm the other. Instead, it may be a couple that has been rejected by mainstream society and has bonded with one another for support and validation.
The concept of the Soul’s Evolution through Relationships raises a number of fascinating issues. Although the ideas put out are intriguing, it is challenging to put them into perspective within the existing partnership. This book offers some interesting situations based on some of our past life relationships, so it definitely requires an open mind.
