Natal Pluto in the 10th House

Pluto is known to be of the most intense planets, and its presence creates an inner need of controlling the matters represented by the house where it is located. When it is located in the 10th house, it affects the native’s career and public image, sometimes leading to obsessions concerning these life areas. The tenth house rules the native’s father, and Pluto makes him a domineering one. He is frequently an authority person; he might be in some governmental position and the native regards him as someone respected or even feared by the masses. Even when Pluto is well aspected, the native has some subconscious fear towards his father during his childhood, mostly because he sees him frequently absent from home and constantly occupied by his position of power.

Pluto represents our ability to challenge ourselves and transform things in our lives. Its nature is secret, mysterious, complex, and a source of crisis and regeneration. In 10th house, it will be more to be considered active at the level of destiny.

In this 10th house, Pluto will mainly act in the field of destiny. Thus the Plutonian side will be present, especially in the professional career, by first giving for it a secret side, a need for transformation, renovation, often the sense of diagnosis or strategy, with also a side a little lonely. Indeed, unlike the Sun, there is no obvious search for notoriety but rather the need to lead the career a little on the fringes of others or in a way linked to particular fields: medical research, police, occult, sciences interested in everything that is transformed, fields related to the night, to closed places, comedians and actors (power of transformation), politics (by the desire to transform, and sometimes to manipulate) etc… also depending on the other planets sending aspects to Pluto. For example, in good aspect to the Moon, others or an audience will be able to play a role (Michel Drucker: Pluto in lion in 10 sextile to the Moon), in good aspect to the Sun, responsibilities and capacities to transform (François Mitterrand: Pluto in Cancer in 10 trine to the Sun)

Pluto may also indicate that the general destiny and career may experience significant challenges and transformations during life. The good aspects touching Pluto will indicate the planets allowing to positively transform the destiny and the career. The dissonant aspects will indicate which areas will participate in the crises of destiny and will be likely to challenge it. A square of Saturn may mean having to face constraints or rivalries, sources of change or transformation. A square of Mars will cause the person to rebel too easily and unconsciously bring about these changes. A square of Venus or the Moon will indicate that the affective plan will be likely to be a source of questioning and that

The sign of Pluto is of little importance since a whole generation of people have the same position in signs.

Finally, the closer Pluto is to the tip of the Midheaven, the more dominant and active it will be in destiny.
