Moon trine Pluto has the same awesome charm of the Sun trine Pluto but with a more obsessive edge, since the Moon rules habits and compulsions. It also carries the devouring mother archetype, and the trine makes it rather insatiable. Hugh Hefner (61’) is a good example of this type. The creator of Playboy claimed to have slept with most of his “Playmates”, despite being married. Without doubt this is an incredibly sexy aspect and it’s charisma is apparent in Jerry Hall (11’) and “Dr Who” David Tennant (92′) who aptly played Casanova, also has the distinctive, penetrating Plutonic eyes. Generally the Moon trine Pluto’s power comes from it’s brooding, seething sex appeal and it’s cunning. The optimistic trine can be put to great use in the field of human rights empowering others, for example Jimmy Carter (16’) was generally regarded as a better man than a president and Harvey Milk (26’) was a gay activist. Milk in true secretive Pluto fashion must’ve covered his sexuality fairly well. As a youth he was never suspected gay. He was generally regarded as a “man’s man”. Which in fact he was!
As we can see Moon trine Pluto plays their cards very close to their chest. They are survivors. Of course there is the dark side of Pluto, even with the trine, or probably because of the trine. Pluto trines can inflate the subject’s sense of power and here we can get the tyrant. Dictator Gadaffi (37’) has this and also Lyle Menendez (23’) who along with his brother murdered his Beverly Hills parents then went on a million dollar spending spree. The best example of this aspect is that of Violette Szabo (15’), the British wartime spy who’s bravery won her the George Cross. In true Pluto spirit Szabo kept her mouth shut, despite being brutally tortured by the Gestapo. She was executed aged just 23.
