Transits of Pluto with Midheaven, Ascendant, Progressed Midheaven, Progressed Ascendant, midpoint AC/MC*) or progressed Ascendant/MC are transits with the angles of our (progressed or natal) chart. They ‘hit’ the corner stones of our lives. That is why they are often intense, challenging and strong. Transits of Pluto cause stress, even if the actual situation is pleasant (like when you win a price). Transits of Pluto with Midheaven or Ascendant intensify the way that you see your relationships, your situation and your status, reputation or condition. The other transits and progressions show in what way you are being 'challenged' or 'stressed' or 'encouraged' to make a fresh new start or a 'come back'.
TRANSIT WITH MIDHEAVEN
Transit Pluto with Midheaven is the symbol of reorganizations, difficult bosses and domestic changes. Hitler got to power with transit Pluto over Midheaven. This transit may change your position in society in a dramatic way. The inconjunction is very hard sometimes, like it was when Donald Trump had T Pluto inconjunct progressed Midheaven. He is example number one.
It is November 2, 1992, the day that he couldn't pay his debts in the middle of a period of financial problems. Transit Pholus was conjunct his Ascendant (turning point in a situation), transit Pluto was inconjunct his Sun (challenge with a lost) and inconjunct progressed Midheaven (lost position due to problems). Later there was progressed Sun conjunct Pluto, expressing the strong will to come back and intensifying life.
Another example of transit Pluto conjunct Midheaven is given in the post about Martine Navratilova: http://astropost.blogspot.com/2010/04/chart-of-martina-navratilova.html
She was diagnosed with breast cancer during this transit and transit Pluto was just one of the many difficult transits and progressions at that time.
EXAMPLE 3: an easy way out of all financial problems
It doesn’t always have to be dramatic. One of the winners of the lottery in my files had transit Pluto sextile progressed Midheaven when he won millions. There was of course more (a trine of transit Pluto with his Jupiter and Uranus, for example…).
TRANSIT WITH ASCENDANT
With Pluto on the Ascendant you are being ‘pushed’, maybe into a relationship that you don’t really want or out of a relationship that is 'pushing you'. Time for relation therapy!
The pressure causes problems and stress sometimes. Pluto is manifesting himself in many ways (or should I say 'political correct' that Pluto is being mirrored by the situation?). Sometimes this transit introduces a stalker or an other fanatic person in your life. You may feel the need to defend yourself.
It happened to a man who later got ‘cold feet’. During his relationship he had an affair and the girl even rang his mother, convinced that she was the real love of his life. However, she was just ‘ the other girl’. ..She didn’t buy it and he moved out of town to avoid contact. His relationship ended anyway. Quote:
That was with transit Saturn square progressed Sun, a perfect transit to end a period, say goodbye and break up. Transit Saturn came right after transit Uranus inconjunct Venus (reflecting an affair, an adventure, falling in love, but*…yes, but he had another!).
This guy wanted to find the easy way out and in the end he got it: free at last, but also all alone:
Inconjunctions are never a pleasure. Tony Blair had transit Pluto inconjunct the Ascendant (stress and out of balance due to an interrogation; having to defend himself) early last year, when starting the investigations about Iraq. There were also supporting transits… Quote:
The fact that transit Uranus AND transit Pluto are making an aspect with the natal and progressed chart tells us, that it won't be easy for him to have to face the Chilcot Committee. However, transit Saturn is trine his natal Ascendant. And transit Jupiter will soon be making a square. Maybe it is tense, but Tony Blair is a 'die hard' and he will be supported by the best lawyers money can buy.
Transits of Pluto with Midheaven or Ascendant intensify the way that you see your relationships, your situation and your status, reputation or condition. The other transits and progressions show in what way you are being 'challenged' or 'stressed'.
*) the midpoint of Ascendant and Midheaven is the degree in the middle of the cusp of house 1 and house 10. More about midpoints and how to calculate them on Astromarkt.LINKS
See Brutus about angularity (Pluto on Ascendant for flashy (opportunism) and on Midheaven for competence ('Yes I can' optimism'). Very interesting!
