Planets to scale – perspective shifter, yah ? Plus Pluto gives the finger, heh.
I count Pluto – hell yes I do.
Once I learned what Sun/Uranus/Pluto entailed…the heavens parted, lightning cracked, my brainpan burst wide open. It was a total –oh, so that’s it- revelatory moment.
Same thing happened when I realized Pluto was the focal planet in my composite (chart of the relationship) with a friend. We’re always peeling back the layers, transformation station 24/7 – intensity unlike any other.
Scale of the planets in question when comparing charts is not important. If you need a refresher, check out the scale of the universe permanently loaded on the sidebar, Pluto rulership. Everything matters, relative size is not an issue here. Asteroids, when contacting personal planets, deliver insights well worth studying, though I tend to pay attention wherever they land in my natal.
What matters is the alchemical blend your planets create together.
Planets, signs and houses.
What is important is what each planetary body represents to earthlings as a whole which directly relates to what was happening in the collective when each was discovered.
Eg. Pluto coincided with the invention and eventual detonation of the first atomic bomb.
Struggle, power, rebirth after death, the small, the rare made miraculous.
Whopper SUN ! Cool, yah ?
Contacts between personal planets (below) explain how you get along on a daily basis, they move quickly and are felt close to home. (An abbreviated list follows)
Sun – ego, expression
Moon – feelings, family
Mercury – thoughts, speech
Venus – love, harmony
Mars – desires, drives
Jupiter and Saturn are social planets, they move slowly, are felt widely, for longer periods, as we explore outside of our family and move around into our neighborhood.
Jupiter – philosophy, travel
Saturn – work, status
Saturn in Scorpio since October 2012 (until late December this year).
Jupiter in Cancer since June of last year (until mid- July this year).
Uranus, Neptune and Pluto are generational planets, move slowest of all, are felt as we explore our awareness globally.
Uranus – global collective mind
Neptune – global collective heart
Pluto – global collective soul
Sun to Sun is positive for both egos
Sun to Moon is positive for sun person’s ego & positive for moon person’s feelings
Yin (female) Moon to Yang (male) Sun is best, but both contacts are still very personal, positive and strong.
Jupiter to Saturn is positive for restrictive Saturn, but less so for expansive Jupiter, Jupiter plays and Saturn works – socially, Saturn opens up and Jupiter slows down.
Of course what sign and house they land in tells more of the tale.
My former husband and I had this social conjunction.
My Saturn bang on his Jupiter in Aries – we travelled far and wide on tour, his paycheck was easily twice mine – obviously beneficial to my Saturnian restriction (3rd Placidius, 4 whole). I thought he worked too much (6th), partied too much, was far too reckless – I even thought he was gonna OD right in front of me once. Not fun. He eventually grew out of it, after we hit the skids…teenage Aries stuff takes awhile I guess. FYI: Just in case you are wondering, I partied plenty – I’m no angel by a long shot.
The 45 minute commute he had was definitely a strain, and my career in the arts could not be had where he wanted to go. Also we had some weird stuff with time and travel, though I will not go into it here.
Note: I am not suggesting if you have this natal contact you will experience the same. Every chart, every relationship is different – alchemical blends are infinite in number.
