Although Pluto is now classified as dwarf planet, in astrology it is still considered a planet. It stands for transformation, the unconscious, the underworld, death and the unknown. It governs the reproductive system in the human body. Pluto rules Scorpio and because it stays in a sign between 14 and 30 years, depending on how many times it goes retrograde, it is noticeable in generations rather than in an individual people. Pluto is in its detriment when it is placed in Taurus, in its fall when in Virgo and in exaltation when in Pisces (romantic interests in arts, philosophy, music).
When Pluto is found in the first house in the natal chart, the native will think of himself as someone unique and will have a tendency to be around people of a low nature. If poorly aspected it can give the native a lack of confidence. Pluto in the fifth house can create a compulsive gambler who will play in secrecy, without others knowing. If well aspected can indicate an unexpected and sudden gambling win. Pluto feels most comfortable in the eight house. This is its natural home. When Pluto is in the 8th house in the natal chart, the native will be interested in death and have psychic abilities. People with Pluto in the 10th house in their natal chart, will have a strong desire to receive power and public recognition. If badly aspected this desire will dishonest and selfish. With 12th house placement in the natal chart, the native will be a private person, who will not want to relieve too much information about its true feelings to other people, unless they are close friends or family with whom he feels comfortable.
