Pluto in the 1st House: Owning Your Personal Power
Pluto is a slow moving outer planet who’s energy effects us in a personal way by natal placement, and generationally by sign. Pluto spends between 12 to 32 years in each sign, and during that time the sign transforms and transmutes as it moves through the degrees. In the natal chart, the placement of Pluto and the aspects that it makes to other planets can have a profound effect on ones nature. Pluto magnetizes the house it’s in and amplifies the intensity of the planets it aspects.
