With negative aspects of Pluto the tendency to want to understand everything can be detrimental and this can increase the risk of fears or phobias, with those of Neptune the mind will be much more worried and dependent on the atmosphere, with those of Uranus the risk is to poorly control the reactions and the mind and this plays on health, with those of Saturn there will be a lack of adaptation and concentration, with those of Jupiter the difficulty will be to judge things well, with those of Mars the meaning practice will be disturbed by impatience and nervousness, with those of the Moon the mind will be fluctuating and too dependent on sensitivity and emotion.
