Sun Sextile/Trine Pluto ~ Glossy Bondage

Sun in sextile or trine to Pluto people carry the dark lord’s powerful presence but zipped up in a sleek, leather catsuit. This often means they are beheld in awe whether they deserve it or not. The soft aspects smooth away most of the Pluto grit and makes them more like a shiny black Corvette, demanding you to run your eyes across them. It’s a real minx of an aspect and the sort that makes you do stuff for them without realizing. They are charismatic like the conjunction, but you don’t feel like they are trying to cast a spell on you. No sign of a scary dark cloud looming over them at all.

Sun/Pluto’s sense of power and self-importance means that you must naturally bow down to them. What makes the soft aspects so beguiling is the air of mystery that they convey. However, these people can play the typical diva and be quite self-obsessed and even grandiose if Pluto is badly afflicted. This is why with even a soft aspect, we can find folk like Peter Sutcliffe or Fred West. These two serial killers also sexually abused their victims. Pluto is so good at keeping secrets, that you would never suspect them of half the things they get up to. Some of them are pure ‘butter wouldn’t melt.’

Butter Wouldn’t Melt

Sun sextile PlutoSun in soft aspect to Pluto likes to play devil’s advocate, with the sextile aspects being especially provocative. Sun trine Pluto can be very extrovert under the spotlight on occasion (Jagger), but very reserved in private. Generally, Sun/Pluto soft aspects slip in and out of the shadows, teasing, while flashing a little piece of taboo titbit here and there. They make enthusiastic researchers, probing deep but also thoroughly. These folk regard their subject from every conceivable angle and leave no stone unturned in their pursuit of the truth. They are obsessive when it comes to unearthing secrets and solving mysteries.

The positive use of this aspect of for exposing injustice. Artists among them are likely to cover grisly and taboo subject matter, turning darkness into an art form. Sometimes shame or guilt of their own power can twist them into a subservient Persephone role to a Pluto predator before they realize they have given away their force. With the Sun trine Pluto it seems many of the natives have had ‘Pluto’ done to them rather than the other way around. Though there are some quite powerful people here. It seems then, if you don’t use your Pluto then someone else will, and turn it against you!

Sun/Pluto ~ Soft Aspects

Sun Sextile Pluto

Carrie Fisher is most famous for her role as Princes Leia in Star Wars, it is interesting the the most Pluto of characters Darth Vader ended up being her father. Carrie grew up steeped in Pluto wealth and Hollywood glitterati as her parents were stars in their own right. She wrote a successful semi-autobiographical novel called ‘Postcards from the edge’ (Pluto) profiling what sounds like a narcissistic relationship with her movie star mother and her drug addiction.

Fisher revealed she was addicted to cocaine and had survived an overdose. Pluto is associated with addictions and psychotherapy. Fisher also has regular “electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) treatments. “ to “blow apart the cement” in her brain.” [1]

Also Cilla Black host of ‘Blind Date’, Obsessive genius Albert Einstein, dark songbirds Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan  and  K. D Lang , British serial killers Fred West  and Peter Sutcliffe, Scandalous Monica Lewinsky, Artist Tracy Emin took the taboo to extremes by exhibited her unmade bed, complete with used condoms and bloodstained underwear. Satirical comic Peter Sellers  was known for being a nasty piece of work in real life, while his often co-star sizzling Sophia Loren  also has this aspect. Also Ingrid Berman, Diego Maradona, Rudolph Steiner, Piet Mondrian, Gene Kelly and Yehudi Menuhin.

Sun Trine Pluto

I have to look at two singbirds who, in many ways, were imprisoned by their fame; Kesha and ‘The blonde one in ABBA’ Agnetha Faltskog. Kesha was in the news recently after her ongoing struggle to break her Sony record contract. Kesha was brought up by her single parent mother ‘Pebe’ Sebert who seems to have groomed Kesha ‘Liza Doolittle’ style to become a star. Pebe, a singer-songwriter herself, taught Kesha how to write songs. Kesha self-styled her name as Ke$ha and went on to sign a multi-million pound contract with music producer Dr Luke’s label, owned by Sony. Many complicated contractual (Bondage= Pluto) wrangles have occurred with Kesha during her career.

Sun Trine PlutoThe Pluto abuse theme comes up again; “In October 2014, Kesha sued producer Dr. Luke for alleged sexual assault and battery, sexual harassment, gender violence, emotional abuse, and violation of California business practices which had occurred over 10 years working together.” [2]

Kesha is also an ordained minister performing ceremonies for gay and straight couples. “She draws inspiration from classic films as well. Her stage makeup is characterised by dramatic glitter makeup at her right eye, inspired by A Clockwork Orange” [2] This one eye symbolism as often thought to represent illuminati control. Indeed Ke$ha’s synthetic music and occult symbolism in all her videos has all the Pluto enslavement hallmarks…

On the other hand we have Agnetha Faltskog a famous Swedish singer-songwriter in her own right before the international success of super-group ABBA. Agnetha was a reluctant performer , hated touring and had a crippling fear of flying. After the split of ABBA in 1982 she continued her solo career but quit recording in 1989. Agnetha completely withdrew from public life for 15 years to a remote area of Sweden. She was upset with being branded a ‘recluse’ by the media.

“In an interview with the BBC’s Breakfast programme, Fältskog denied reports that she had spent years mired in depression and mental turmoil, broken by a painful divorce from Björn Ulvaeus.” [3]

She just said they were all very tired and felt it was time to do other things “I think I was more like the black sheep. I was someone that you could blame it on.”  [3]. During Agnetha’s musical hiatus she had a strange friendship with a younger fan, Dutchman Ger Van De Graaf who stalked her for many years after the friendship was over. Agnetha ended up having to take out a restraining order against him.

More; Ennio Morricone famous for his dark, plaintive, but simply powerful film scores. Many Singers, some diva and others melancholic Jose Carreras, Aretha Franklin, Diana Ross, Tina Turner, Robert Smith, Eric Clapton, LL Cool, Kelly Rowland, spicy Mel B and slinky Shakira. Also tragic Princess Grace Kelly, Bruce Lee, scary Christina Ricci, Colin Farrell, Charles Bronson, Steven Seagal, Cate Blanchette, Francois Mitterand, Rupert Murdoch, Buster Keaton and George Sand.

  1. Sun Pisces/12th house trine a retrograde Pluto

    I’ve always been interested in dark and powerful things. I used to read stories and watch TV shows about both vampires and the Greek gods, and I often tap into that sense of awe and mystery as a writer and artist (Pluto in Libra). I also had a very troubled childhood with an alcoholic stepfather (my Saturn retrograde in Scorpio/Saturn conjunct Pluto) and deeply introverted mother (Saturn sextile Neptune). I often struggle with depression, and writing fiction and poetry has always been my means of escaping and overcoming the harsher aspects of my reality (Sun in Pisces/Descendant in Scorpio). I’m also *extremely* stubborn and willful because I know what I want, and I don’t want anyone to stand in my way (Taurus Rising/Scorpio Descending).

    It’s actually surprising how powerful my Pluto/Scorpio influences are, given that I’m generally very much the soft, sensitive Pisces gal. But I’ve realised that the Scorpionic influence is why I relate to the imagery of the phoenix so much, dying and rising from the ashes again and again, becoming stronger each time. That’s been my life in a nutshell; first suffering then rising above it.

  2. Sun Cancer 1st house trine Pluto

    Something I have noticed about Sun/Pluto trine is that as a native, you get a LOT of Pluto’s characteristics. Back when I was initially learning astrology, I had always wondered why I was so ‘Scorpio-like’, when only one of my planets is located in Scorpio. My Sun in Cancer is second decan, so that seemed to explain it for a little while – until I learned about my Sun trine Pluto. Taking a look at Pluto in the houses (in general), my Pluto/Sun trine has given me various characteristics of: Pluto in the first house (power struggles expressed by physical appearance; dramatic aesthetics that alienate others, etc.), second house (resentment regarding money and its control, etc.), third house (words as manipulation, words as focus of power struggle, gifted at seeing other’s motivations, etc.), fourth house (undercurrents of resentment in early home life, etc.), fifth house (manipulation used tool from a very early age, talent as focus of power struggles, etc.), seventh house (overly haunted by previous relationships, love equated with control, etc.), eighth house (sex is given enormous power, sex equated with control, etc.), tenth house (negatively obsessed with success, refusal to be under another’s power, etc.) and eleventh house (failed attempts to belong to a group in early life stages, etc.). My natal Pluto lies in the fourth house, but because of the trine, I have collected so much more Scorpio than I ever could have guessed. Pluto is also my dominant planet. I’m sure the trine has something to do with that! If anyone is interested in learning more about Pluto in the houses, check out Donna Cunningham’s book – Healing Pluto Problems. I highly recommend it.

  3. Sun Aries 1st house trine pluto and mars (conj)

    When I was younger I would explode everyone in brutality with my elementary school classmates, especially mars conjunct midheaven and mercury in aries square mars uahsuahs it was so funny when I fought with someone, even people watched. I can control it today.

  4. *2 Transpersonal Sun aspects, how many times has my Ego been destroyed? I could not count. But after a while, this one starts to feel good to do. Maybe a touch self obsessed, but I have a Cosmic Doctors note with North Node in Leo And Aries saying its ok to be that way. lol. Many times I write about my self in public and say things in public just to get used to being myself, because a lot of people do not think or act like I do around my way, so I have to constantly go “over myself” to cement what is my birthright, by astrology placements. That others people try and say is not ok to do.

  5. I’m not so much self-obsessed as I am introspective. There IS a difference, and self-knowledge is something we should all strive for!

  6. I have this, with Pluto in Virgo, Sol in Cap. I’m not self obsessed, I just refer to myself a lot, probably because I’m the only person I can honestly say I really know anything about. I’m not exactly sure if anybody has ever regarded me as glossy or slinky, but the signs being Virgo and Capricorn, odds are, people keep a prudent distance and do not speak about such matters unless asked to. Had I this in Fire, I think I might have to chase extra babes away with a stick. Sigh, the curse of Virgo and chilly Capricorn… Of course, if people keep a reverent distance, they’re not going to learn much about the native, which results in an aura of mystery.

  7. I have this aspect & Pluto on my ascendant.Would love to feel fabulous,..lol!…When I was in my teens & twenties I would say I could definitely relate to the diva part.I would take the easy way out so I would vamp it up,but keeping that image with some class was what I aimed for.Now,I just aim for modest presentation.
