Just as your Sun sign represents your true identity in this life, Pluto’s house represents an old pattern of identity from the past. It is a past pattern of life that is carried over into this life. We can say that Pluto’s house is that area of life where complete regeneration is needed. Compulsive behavior and even ruthlessness needs to be transformed into willful intentions yielding great powers of perception and insight into the subtle forces of life. Plutonian people can make great healers simply by touch or vision.
The aspects of Pluto to other planets gives an indication as to how that transformation can bring new understanding and regeneration. Whether the aspect is “hard” as in square or opposition, or “easy” as in a trine or sextile, determines whether one has an innate knowing, or will meet some hard karmic destiny. There is an enormous potential for power by discovering those fields of experience in the house of Pluto. It heals when it is tapped.

PLUTO in LEO
Pluto in any sign always represents fundamental change, upheavals, and drastic transformations. Pluto’s period in Leo was from 1938-1957. Leo rules kings and representatives in government. These children grew up in rebellion either born during the war years or shortly thereafter. The idea of self-sufficiency bloomed later in these children, returning to the earth, living in communes and counterculture societies with a basic distrust of the establishment.

A worldwide power struggle followed in the form of a cold war.
