•The energies of Pluto are transforming. Pluto represents subconscious forces, ruling all that is “below the surface”.
•On the up side, Pluto represents endings and new beginnings, as well as spiritual growth and rebirth. Negative expression of Pluto is an obsessive desire for power and control and general destructiveness. Cafe Astrology
•By house, the position of Pluto shows where individuals search for truths and deeper meaning. This area of life may be associated with change, upheaval, power struggles, and issues of control. It is either where we seek change and transformation, or have it thrust upon us if we refuse to accept our deepest needs. If we fear Pluto’s energies, or our “dark” side, destructiveness, both directed at ourselves or others, is a byproduct. Cafe Astrology
•Pluto rules Scorpio with its province being death and rebirth. There's a Sufi saying, "Die many times before you die," and Pluto's lessons hold out promise of emerging from the flames a new person. The Ego holds to its defences, but Pluto tries to urge us to let go, and surrender to become a new person. Molly Hall
•Pluto also governs power itself, including struggles between people and countries for domination, and of course, personal power. It shows up when perfectly capable people end up under the thumb of someone else's control. Facing down the control and manipulation of others, especially parents, can make us weak in the knees. But once we do this, we are changed forever. Molly Hall
