MOON CONJUNCT PLUTO in your yearly Solar return chart

The Moon conjunct Pluto in Solar return year implies an emotional makeup which is complicated by unconscious psychological influences. 

This can be a time of in-depth soul searching. Emotions may be tainted or seasoned by events or complexes from the past, and you could be reliving a former event in an immediate situation. This might be your chance for a do-over.


If a situation ended badly in the past, you might now have an opportunity to deal with the situation differently or to make alternate decisions. The results could change your satisfaction with the outcome and lead to healing. Perhaps you want to understand something about yourself and your responses. Maybe it is a question of personal empowerment. If you are caught in a repeating cycle of events, you could be hoping to crack the code of counter-productive responses and actions. Moon/Pluto contacts can signal the possibility of karmic revisions. With increased consciousness and awareness, you can handle the situation better this time around.

When Pluto makes a conjunction to the Moon, you are being drawn into a great lesson regarding power and empowerment.

Do not be distracted from the nature of the lesson and its importance. Though feelings will seem more volatile, intense, and even overwhelming, stay focused. Be forewarned that reasoning can be based on emotional factors and simply defy logic. Maintain clarity by not making reactionary responses to stimuli. The more insightful you are in regard to events, decisions, and interactions, the better you will handle any arising issues and conflicts. 

Relationships are likely to be affected, and psychological influences will distort communications, intentions, and reactions. If you are in close contact with someone who is not always rational, you must learn to deal with is-sues in an insightful way to maintain personal 

integrity and balance. If you are stressed, seek help. In extreme cases, you or another person will need counseling to investigate, clarify, and heal. This is a good time to become more aware of manipulations and psychological games. Study those around you. How do they use power? Do they abuse power? Be self-reflective. What are you doing to empower yourself? Do you undermine your own effectiveness? You may merely perceive these power influences and struggles occurring around you, or you may be directly involved in a conflict. With any conflict, you are capable of being the manipu-lator or the manipulated, or both. 

Moon conjunct Pluto in the solar return at its worst implies power struggles for physical, emotional, sexual, or financial control. If you are the one attempting to control someone else, it is probably a lost cause. You may think you are controlling another person, but in reality, all your time and energy is monopolized by the struggle. You become stuck in conflict. If you are uncomfortable with your own lack of power, you need to seek out a pathway to personal empowerment and find a way to move forward. On the other hand, if someone is intent on controlling you, remember, emotional blackmail and manipulation only work if you allow another person to have power over some portion of your life. As soon as you begin to control yourself and take responsibility for your own actions and well-being, manipulators lose all power. Figure a way to undermine the manipulator's influence. 

Not every Moon conjunction to Pluto involves difficult circumstances. Writers, counselors, psychology students, therapists, those in therapy, or anyone focused on a need to understand themselves or human nature can have Moon-Pluto contacts in their solar returns during important years of significant growth. It is a sign of intense internal interaction and awakening. It is the awareness of the psychological and emotional influences innate to the struggle which is significant. Insight fosters empowerment. Use this time to begin to discover how unconscious drives affect your life, situation, and decisions. 

A very pleasant reason for being so emotional is an involvement in a new and exciting romantic relationship. All relationships, even those which are established, are subject to change and new insight. Domestic and family situations are also in the process of changing. The family size may increase or decrease as babies are born or grown children move out. Moving, planning to move, or home renovating is also possible.
