Pluto is the symbol of strategy, influence, authority and intensity. Ascendant/Midheaven (AC/MC) is the most individual midpoint, at the cross point of longitude and latitude degree, where you were born. Your situation and condition and destiny is revealed by the aspects with AC/MC. What’s your goal and how is your environment and where do they (the objectives and the situation) come together: at AC/MC midpoint. Any aspect with AC/MC midpoint is of crucial importance and clarifies more about you.
When Pluto is part of a midpoint combination with Ascendant and Midheaven you are not superficial; you are a fanatic and tend to dive deep into your life goals. You may be a specialist or an authority, fascinating or impressing. It very much depends on the rest of the chart whether the influence will be at larger scale. One of the other possible meanings of this midpoint combination is a complete transformation in life, for example when somebody suddenly becomes rich or famous or ...the opposite of this. Transits of Pluto with the angles often occur in times of stress and challenges. Natal Pluto/AC/MC combinations could be the reflection of stress at birth and the impact on the personality later. My examples are Billy Graham (Pluto/MC = AC) and Indira Ghandi (Pluto/AC square MC).
Transits of Pluto with Midheaven, Ascendant or AC/MC reveal a lot of the meaning of Pluto/AC/MC combinations. I quote:
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'.
