    When I was younger Life or death gambles. Russian roulette. Power through trying your luck. Luck through exploring the taboo. is completly true definitions some of my actions in life… I am really interested in those subjects like Philisophy of power and philosphy of survival….
    As I get older, I relatively reduce the life or death gambles… Now those lines are true for me: Penetrating wisdom. Depth of understanding. Joy and pain. The power of the positive. Deep resources of optimism and joy in times of hardship. The faith that the bad times will end and you can start over.
    and hope in the near future those lines will be also true:
    Capacity for enormous wealth. The ability to regenerate abundance. :)
    Jupiter (Taurus) trine Pluto (Virgo)…

      What kinds of risks did you take? What were most of those gambles about?

      #
      • Aycelina says:

        I would prefer not to say much of them… But for example… When I was a child, I mean 9-12 years.. I really liked to jump from our balcony to the our neighbor’s balcony… It was a kind of game for me… We were living in the sixth floor. I mean it was high enough for one to be dead by falling.

    I have the sextile but it is almost exact so it isn’t necessarily a weaker aspect. I have 7th house Jupiter 17 Leo 08′ sextile 9th house Pluto 16 Libra 45′. With the 7th/9th influence I think it might have something to do with the man I am involved with (pretty seriously). He is foreign and he has a pretty powerful position that is, interestingly, in a renovating, rebuilding, recycling type of field. He even actually bids on old storage units, like on that show. I understand where he could be seen as a “powerful benefactor” and actually also a “hidden benefactor” (another thing that goes along with my solar return). “Interactions with foreign people that cause you to overhaul your life.” – I actually see that coming up, obviously in life as well as in my solar return for 2011…

    I am glad that I am seeing so much about “The faith that the bad times will end and you can start over.” because times have been pretty rough for me with t Saturn conjunct Moon and Pluto but, I know…

    #
    • Michelle says:

      That’s so interesting that the guy you’re seeing is a recycling/regenerating type – very much fits the Jupiter/Pluto profile.

      I hope the hard times do end for you Erika. I’ve had transiting Saturn pass over natal Pluto in the 2nd house twice now and it has not been easy at all.

    Jupiter in Pisces in the 12th opposite Pluto in Libra in the 6th. I am a terrible hoarder, especially when it comes to my work – I have xerox copies of articles I copied as an MA student and I cannot bring myself to throw them away, even though my research interest have changed. Now I do research on the intersection of literary studies and religious studies, which I suppose could be attributed to this aspect as well. Oh, and I recycle religiously :-)

    Unfortunately other parts of your description do not fit me, although sometimes I wish I could be more of this “bigger than life” character instead of my pinched Saturnian self. But the whole description screamed “Henry VIII” for me and guess what? He had a trine:
    http://goo.gl/YemEJ
    Wielding power? check. Paranoid and jealous? Check. Getting bigger and bigger? Check – the guy was 6’3″ – 6’4″ and he went from being a very fit young man to a man with the waistline of 58 inches (judging by his last armour). And religion definitely played a big role in his life, although in a very twisted manner: he was the younger son so for a very long time he was being primed to take Holy Orders and eventually become an Archbishop or Cardinal. It was only after his brother’s death when he advanced to the position of the heir to throne, but his theological training stuck with him – many historians believe that his anti-Lutheran “Defense of Seven Sacraments” was not ghost-written. And even when he changed the denomination of his whole country so that he could marry the woman he wanted (out of control obsession? check) and lay his hands on the riches of the monasteries (check), he still remained pretty much Catholic from the theological point of view. Also, he wouldn’t have put up with bare-bones Protestant style of worship – he like his liturgy old-Catholic style, lavish and elaborate.

    #
    • Michelle says:

      Religious research is definitely a possibility for this aspect.

      Ha ha! Fascinating about Henry VIII! Jupiter/Pluto fits him so well. Thank you for taking the time to share that.

      About your pinched Saturn – where is it again?

      #
      • tatiana.larina says:

        My Saturn is in Cancer, opposite Moon in Capricorn and forming a part of the Grand Cardinal Cross.

        #
        • Michelle says:

          I couldn’t remember if Saturn was in that Grand Cross or not. Saturn tightens your chart a lot. It adds seriousness, reserve and discipline.

    Wow!Until you wrote about it Michelle, I couldn’t find much on it’s interpretation. So, thank you!

    Jupiter (Tau 26°26′) Pluto (Lib 13°09′) wan. sep. sesquisquare (135°00′) orb: 1°43′

    So maybe there’s some hope of me striking it rich yet. :-D

    I guess these are some of the traits I relate to…

    Lightness and darkness. Philosophies of survival. Survivalists. Stockpiling survival gear and other necessities(only when needed).Wanting to experience everything – the highest highs and lowest lows.Enormous transformations.The faith that the bad times will end and you can start over. Sticking to your principles even under extreme duress.paranoid. Suspicion out of proportion to real events. Out of control obsession. Ridiculous jealousy. Overwhelmingly intense. Philosophies of power.Transforming your life through a relationship with a higher power(spiritual not religious for me). Uncovering your inner wisdom. Depth of understanding. and upheaval is a definite word I can relate to.

  6. EG says:

    It doesn’t *matter* if there’s no death involved. Everything is nothing, nothing is everything. Hope is a lie. Hope is an instant relief. Hoping means blocking the symptom, but ignoring the cause. Avoid hope. Faith as tool to achieve ones goal. Faith is blindness with outstretched arm. Sins reflect in our beliefs. Over-consuming need to be guided. Use and control the fanatic in you. Destructive beliefs. Loosing big values leads to self-destruction. Loss of values as physical pain. Find a meaning. Impose faith. Impose what you believe in. Impose. Faith is not safe. Destruction through more. More came from somewhere. More on someones account. Breaking worldviews. Manipulating someones beliefs. Directing personal growth. Control kills the Divine. Growing a puppet. Overwhelming power pressure. Authorities established. One self as the only incontestable authority. To consider someones opinion is to share power. Religion is dangerous. Religion is a taboo. Magnetic attraction to religion. Magnetic attraction for *true* authority. Expanding your mind through sex. Dig under the glamor. Fueling the power of glamor over yourself to lighten up. Profound ambition. Too big for his boots. Constant explosive expansion. Everything for the cause. Deep resentment of own superficiality/gloss. Willingness to crawl up. Philosophy that craves force. Fascination with global processes. Universal patterns. Looking for power points in big picture. Objective value.

    My Jupiter has a lot of aspects, so I might confuse different aspects – thoughts are welcomed :)
    PS: I love your descriptions.

    Pluto in Scorpio (8th house) semisquare Jupiter in Sag (10th house, exact conjunct the Midheaven). “Having an optimistic attitude toward inevitable change” really resonates with me, as well as working better under pressure. But hey, here’s hoping that “capacity for enormous wealth” kicks in someday! ;)

    Before I forget let me start off by saying, the bottom photo is hilarious and another awesome post!! Makes me wonder if Viagra is a Jupiter/Pluto invention. lol

    10th house Jupiter in Gemini square 1st house Pluto in Virgo

    “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.” People who love flea
    markets, pawn shops, antiquing or thrift store shopping. Finding the
    good in what has been discarded. Treasure hunts. Scavenger hunts…Obsessed with education and learning. Knowledge is power. ”

    Now this set is so me it’s ridiculous, however like the Jupiter/Uranus post, I would have never thought this(flea markets, thrift store etc) was the result of this pairing of planets. I thought it was just Pluto in Virgo linked to Saturn in Pisces. I really like re-purposing items and seeing others ideas on this too. The obsessed with learning part, I can definitely say heck yeah especially since this pair is aspected by Saturn and Mercury. Pluto rules my 3rd and Neptune is there conjunct the South Node so education opportunities, have a habit of floating away. So, I DIY.

    “..Obsessed with religion. Forcing your moral authority. Attempting to
    control others through your relationship with a higher power…. The power of being bigger. Obsessed with being bigger – physically,
    mentally, emotionally or spiritually. Pumping yourself up. Wanting to
    dominate a particular sphere of influence. Conceited about the amount of
    power you have. ”

    Having grown up in this kind of environment and currently living in the Bible Belt, I did not like it then or now so I do not do this to others. I’m a live and let live as long as what you are doing does not hurt me or others, kind of girl. I’m sure Uranus affects this as it is very tightly conjunct Pluto (3 mins). The only one I want to have power over is myself.

    “Just the right amount” is what I’m striving for.

     I’ve taken many gambles some have turned out good but some have resulted in injuries, loss of money, and missed opportunities. Might this be because my Jupiter is square Pluto?

    #
    • Michelle says:

       Might this be because my Jupiter is square Pluto?Yes that is one reason. With squares you often have to work harder to make things turn out the way you want them to. Squares don’t come together easily like trines or sextiles.

  13. Urumtsug says:

     I have Pluto Rx conjunct Mars and Rx Uranus in Virgo 10th house, trine Jupiter in Taurus 7th. This is part of a grand earth trine with my Sun in Capricorn conjunct Lilith, Pallas and Juno. I’ve gambled my life and won.  I have had miraculous luck in deadly accidents. I can wield the power of God, Hades and Lilith,  bringing about sudden change, justice, peace, salvation to women and potential death to the agents of darkness. Darkness fears me. I’ve almost broken the sternum of a murderer and tossed him all over the place by the throat with one hand. My left. I’m a righty. I’m a skinny, wiry guy, not at all muscular. I have stood my ground against a knife, startling my enemy so much with my determination that he forgot to use his weapon when he had a chance and finally lost heart. I find beauty in weapons, especially exotic ones, probably thanks to the sq to Venus in the 2nd in Sag. I have guns, swords, daggers, knives, a spear, a helmet and what not. Weapons obey me willingly. I can do the voice of the Underworld thing. I can look like Satan, when forced to. I can look like an angel, when I want to. I’m on a mission from God. 

    I live in a house where a guy immolated himself last autumn. This place gives people the creeps and nobody wants to live here or even visit here. Half the apartments are empty. I don’t mind the dark portal  the dead guy opened as he died. I ordered it to seal and it sealed. Any dark creatures will just have to deal with me, if they want to come up. 

    I have dug really deep into the psyche. I’ve seen two of my past deaths in my dreams, probably thanks to the sextile between Pluto and Neptune, helped by Pluto in Capricorn, where the oldest bones lie buried. One of those old deaths was in a cave, getting eaten by a bear. In scary situations everybody else panics, but I remain calm, even cheerful. I can enter chaos and when I exit, there is order. I’ve uncovered my inner wisdom and there seems to be more of it to uncover. I’m transforming my life as we speak. I can stick to my principles under extreme duress, if I consider the matter to be worth it. Causing me extreme duress is extremely unwise. Some of the greatest things I’ve achieved were achieved under immense pressure. My bad times are ending. I love flea markets and such.

      Excellent. 

      Pluto conjunct Mars and Uranus, with Jupiter trine Mars, adds a great deal of motion, unpredictability, and personal involvement to your Jupiter/Pluto trine.

    Yes, some very good points here. I wrote down some of the keywords in my notebook.
    I always like a  catchy keywords and congratulations for making them Michelle.
    I’m a songwriter and I want what we lyricists called a ‘hook’, some word which will take the listeners attention.
    I have an interesting play of sextiles. Pluto at 2 Scorpio, Mars at 6 Scorpio in  4th house, in Sextile to Neptune at 0 Capricorn, Jupiter at 0.50 Capricorn and Mercury at 8 Capricorn in 6th house. To this I add Venus at 27  Sag.
    Many of the keywords here are very true. Jupiter as a ruler of my Sag S.Node is very Spiritual.  I explored many religions and belief systems and I’m always digging deeper and deeper (never enough of spiritual knowledge). I have this sense of Higher Power governing my life. After many years of  searching for ‘the truth’ I found out that this place inside is something which all the religions and belief systems are referring to. I called it “the Source”. Others do perceive me as a teacher (some even call me a ‘guru’, a title which I don’t like really, but I guess it is something which is left inside me from many past lives). 
    I found out that Pluto is giving me a depth and Jupiter widening. Pluto is going vertically and Jupiter horizontally. The one is digging and the other explore.
    Jupiter (and Neptune) rules my 9th house and when Uranus started transiting it a couple of years ago (at the same time Pluto transit conjunct my natal Jupiter and Neptune) I broke up with the Orthodox Christianity and started to explore some other spiritual belief and psychological systems. (I guess this comes from Pluto in 4th too). Year ago I get into Astrology. Actually I’ve got a big passion for Astrology. 
    Pluto-Jupiter sextile brought to me many opportunities for Learning and Exploring the spiritual dimension of life.

    It is very deep aspect indeed. And I need to meditate on the keywords you wrote. I’m sure I’ll find many more insights.

    It is important to differentiate between types of aspects.
    I know 2 women well with jupiter opposite pluto and twisted psyche describes them perfectly, nothing is pure in what they think, say or do.  However I also know jupiter trine pluto person and whilst powerful, they stand for positive circumstances instead of creating negative ones like the women with jup opp pluto do.  I got away from one of these women and am now longing for an opportunity to get away from the other one.

    Man, I’ve got a triple conjunction of Jupiter, Mercury, and Pluto all conjunct within 1 degree.

    7H Jupiter Scorpio 27* 40′
    7H Mercury Scorpio 27* 51′
    7H Pluto Scorpio 28* 18′

    My Sun is widely conjunct to all of this at 6* Sagittarius on the 7/8H cusp.

    Here’s hoping to great success and wealth! I could really use that right now!

    Hi I like this article. I have Jupiter sextile Pluto. My Jupiter is in Scorpio in 6th House and Pluto in Virgo in 4th House. Exaggerated sexual appetites. Enormous crisis. The power of God. God complex. Overbearing moral attitudes. Death and destruction in the name of your God. Obsessed with religion. Forcing your moral authority. Attempting to control others through your relationship with a higher power. Obsessed with being right. Corrupt morals. Finding healing through religion. Transforming your life through a relationship with a higher power. Uncovering your inner wisdom. Penetrating wisdom. Depth of understanding. Joy and pain. The power of the positive. Deep resources of optimism and joy in times of hardship. The faith that the bad times will end and you can start over. Sticking to your principles even under extreme duress. Thriving under enormous pressure. This has got to be the epitome of my personality. This has been my life’s struggles and definition. My quest for God has become an obsession. My Moon and North Node in Aquarius conjunct in my 9th House, LOL! Not to mention my appetite for making money!

    My Draconic Sun is in Aquarius and my Moon in Aries tightly conjuncts North Node in Aries, of course at 0 degrees, in my 9th House! LOL! With Venus and Mars aspecting my Moon.

    I love this aspect because so many very powerful people have it and I just got inspired even more to launch my ideas and inventions. Thank you Astrofix for that wonderful explication of the Jupiter/Pluto aspects.

    Hi Michelle,
    love your brainstormings; they’re rich and accurate.
    Looked for Jupiter conjunct Pluto, because my six year-old son has it exact (in Sagittarius). He has such an enormous willpower and excessively loves to fight, loves weapons like swords, guns (even was showed how to shot with a real one by his grandfather a few days ago). He is really expansive, not only physical (sometimes dancing excessively to loud and hard music) or driving very fast out of parents sight with his kickboard, but also with collecting DVD-movies (for 12-years-old children), LEGO stuff, and money. I sometimes wonder, how this little child can have have such an unalterable inner knowledge about what he wants and how he can have this enormous enthusiastic power to bring the people around to give him what he wants. Now I see a little clearer.
    Another thing: As, after reading your brainstorming, the Jupiter-Pluto-archetype showed up in my imagination, I spontaneously thought about Bernie Ecclestone, the Formula 1-mogul, and looked for his birth chart. You can guess what I found there?
