If a relationship does end during this transit.

You may need to consult with people in plutonic related professions like financial advisors, divorce or other types of solicitors-legal professionals, doctors, surgeons, psychologists, etc..

It is best that you are mindful of your own and other people’s intentions.

Because hidden enemies can be revealed right now or people working in the shadows o you some harm, but putting themselves forward as a friend.

Because of this, circumspection is needed, and for some of you, especially if you have adverse aspects to Pluto, Saturn or Uranus in your natal chart or by transit, it may not be the best time to commit to any new relationship.

Don’t become scared of life at this time; just observe people’s actions more and words less; actions are hard to fake and do not ignore warning signs; keep a voice note long or written diary as events during this transit.

Make sure anything or anyone you commit to is worthy of you take it slow.

 If you enjoy intense connections, this may be the perfect time to settle into a relationship for you as yano some of us humans,  like power games.

All humans have a dark side; how we channel it counts.

On the inner level, you may decide that your life has become unbearable and start a period of self-transformation.

You may consult a therapist or alternative healer, or life coach to help you with this change.

Read more about Pluto Transiting the 9th house

Pluto in the 9th house can change the way you view yourself, other people and the world at large; this can come from an inner psychological, higher consciousness or intellectual awakening.

But it is more likely your change of mind will develop from education, legal, intellectual, philosophical, spiritual, supernatural or other occult research or attending lectures on any of these subjects or interactions with people or groups from different cultures and beliefs systems to you.

Pluto transits are also slow, so the process of changing your belief systems can also be slow or rapid.

 Pluto’s energy is more subconscious than conscious, depending on your natal chart and other transits and aspects occurring to your birth chart at the time of this transit.

 The experiences and inner changes you go through will be intense or happen subtly over time; there can also be the awakening of past life- past consciousness memories.

 The development of your transformation in thought and maybe behaviours is more likely to occur via gut feelings- intuition or from. Your own inner absorption of the external events that happen during this transit, As bob Marley and the wailer’s sing, who feels it know it.

 And although Pluto lessons can be oh so excruciatingly painful, often, we humans only learn from our own personal experiences. Which are often leaaarneeed the hard way,  and not the good advice that can come our way.

Now we humans, often when we learn something new, wish to shout it from the rooftops and tell everyone, but you must check any new information you come across at this time.

As there are many opinions in our world but very few truths, which are simple, still we humans find the simple things hardest to understand and do.

 Pluto energy can be intense infatuated and can cause fixation on objects of our desire and attention; forcing ideas on others can cause relationship breakdowns.

Pluto’s negative aspects in the 9th house can cause trouble with authorities due to overzealous behaviours.

 Jupiter’s influence on the 9th house can make you too dogmatic with proving your opinions, so this can cause you to take violent or impulsive actions that cause consequences.

 But again, whatever occurs in Pluto transit is meant to happen that way. So don’t beat yourself up too much, yet grieve for what is lost, then move on.

Whatever leaves at this time, let it go, and whatever comes to you, let it flow.

 Yes, share your beliefs with others but know everyone has and is entitled to their own opinions, interest and behaviours.

Truth like oil always rises (is extracted) to the surface.

Currently, most of us are programmed to escape our emotions and the higher meanings in ourselves and in life.

During this transit, you may be inclined to use drugs, entertainment, alcohol, toxic relationships, hookups or any other distraction technique to stop the inner work that needs to take place at this time.

Even if you’re usually a rational thinking person who can control your reactions.

Under this transit, you may find it hard to even carry out pre-planned reactions to people because your subconscious will drive your conscious reactions and words.

Self-acceptance is the keyword for this transit; all humans can be yano, foolish and jerks at times, you no different, and this is not to make you feel worse.

 But to get you to understand no human is perfect, it’s just most of us use filters and airbrushes, makeup etc., to hide our blemishes.

Yet, it is our flaws that make us all unique, and you should embrace them.

In our childhoods, we are told certain destructive and unacceptable behaviours during this transit.

 It’s essential you let go of all the past hurts and words of people that still affect you today.

I mean, are these people really perfect, or do they just believe they are? There is no perfect after all, just photoshop anyway; this is about you, and Pluto transiting the 12th house is asking you to release yourself from the chains of your past.

By healing your psychological and emotional wounds, seeking out counselling or some other therapy may be needed at this time if you feel you need support.

Or you can search the internet for videos or online courses that can help you heal from all that still hurts you.

I know it’s easy to escape into addiction and distraction, but this will only cause you to repeat a vicious cycle for your entire life.

It can be painful to revisit childhood, adolescent and early adulthood memories.

You may choose to end or distance yourself from long term friendships or family bonds at this time, as your face to deal with problems in these relationships you have been hiding from for years.

Explosive talks can cause separation; although this can be hurtful, it is for the best in the long run.

Whatever you hide from and repress now will come out in one way or another.

I know running from your problems is more attractive than facing them at first, but if you take your time, write down your thoughts, or voice note them and make a plan to resolve your issue, you will.

If not, your escape mechanism may interfere with your ability to focus at work or meet your day to day responsibilities, which can cause tension in relationships.

This can be a time of loneliness, but the events that happen now are clearing the way for the new, past events, and people only control us as we often numb ourselves or escape from dealing with them.

Only the things we hide can control us; if we face up to the things, we hide in the dark of our subconscious. They can no longer cause you pain and destroy your life.
