Natal Pluto in the 4th House

The presence of Pluto in the house of one’s roots gives a very intense childhood and family. Of course, this very much depends on Pluto’s condition and on the aspects that it receives from other planets. This is a rather difficult placement for the transformative planet, as it forces the chart holder to become strong in his early years, to be able to confront the emotional challenges imposed. As the 4th house rules one’s mother, Pluto in the 4th house makes her very domineering and controlling. She wants to interfere in the native’s life even when he is a grownup, and is constantly putting her nose in his activities. The native’s father might also be of such a nature; nevertheless, it is the mother who strives for control.

This planet in 4th house shows that family relationships can be tinged with secrecy, mystery, passion, and therefore also revolt or rebellion (depending on aspects). It is moreover in this family domain and the home that the native is brought to question himself and to evolve mainly. The influence of the parents always seems quite strong in this position (whether well or badly experienced). Then it is obvious that this can also cause difficulties in dialogue or differences of opinion with the spouse in adulthood at home, or the fact of experiencing significant transformations. The family may also have been marked by major crises (loss, death, etc.). You should know that Pluto in the 4th house shows that there is always a need to understand the roots, the past,
