Pluto Transit in the 8th House

2416887With a Pluto transit in the 8th house, you can experience some evolutionary, and great changes spiritually. It could take your soul deep into the subconscious, and dredge up deep-rooted emotions, so you can become extraordinarily vulnerable throughout this whole phase. It could be a readying passage to move beyond your psychological boundaries and this can often mean a confrontation of sorts, with your deep attachments, memories, and with the people who no longer serve your growth. Traveling underground, analyzing nature at its core level could be what this journey is all about. It could also mean there is a new kind of sexuality arising within and you might also be awakened, feeling more powerful, and a sense of fate and destiny is so incredibly intense that it touches the soul. A general thought astrologers often relate is that a Pluto transit in its own house is only painful when you resist changes and still try to hold onto worn-out ways. I think that FATED events often intrude anyway, regardless of how open you are to massive undertakings of change.

Pluto moving through a house can take many years, and so it is important to examine the natal chart for the upcoming aspects involved. You will become profoundly aware of the deeper undercurrents of life, and this can be frightening, for suddenly there is a new awareness of the hidden motivations of others. You may want to explore further the deeper meaning of psychology and body language. A force as compelling as Pluto through the 8th house drives you towards uncovering anything which has been buried.  The time is now ripe to catch the insights of the mystics and take in fully some new, and profound revelations. This house has always been such an occult area and interest in the deeper aspects of life may take hold and this can be something of a mystical, psychic and supernatural journey, with a keen fascination with life and death issues, astral travel, and other planes of existence. There are fears and a fascination of what lies beyond bodily existence.

The 8th house and Pluto can be tough, this energy can send you into spirals of self-criticism, wondering what the hell is wrong with you. Thoughts, beliefs, and emotions laced with sulfurous toxins include anxiety, shame, and dread. A running tirade of self-blame like an invasive radio station that you are unable to switch off. Of course, a lot depends on how much has been bottled up over the years. Another factor is whether or not the aspect Pluto forms are soft or hard. This Plutonian realm is like adolescence at its worst and it is the psychological landscape of self-examination, psychological vulnerability, depression, suicide attempts, anorexia, emotional disorders, and abuse. It revals your gropings at maturity, and so any damaging behavior patterns can be highlighted, especially overly naive ones. Now, does this mean you’ll feel this extreme with a Pluto transit in the 8th house? No, not necessarily, but you can deal with growing pains. This is because new perspectives upset old habits and attitudes, but this is also an essential step in any transformational process. The rewards of such an internal cleansing process are worth it. Each time it involves letting go of one of your illusions.
