The Plutonian Energy: Natal Pluto in the First House

In the Greek/Roman mythology, Pluto/Hades is the king of the underworld and god of the dead. As one can imagine based on this information, the planet Pluto has very strong and dark influence over us. His energy is rather mysterious and out of the ordinary; Pluto rules the sign of Scorpio.

Pluto is the slowest-moving planet in the Solar System. His energy influences entire generations. For instance, Pluto spent about 11-12 years in the sign of Scorpio from Nov 1983 to May 1983, then from Aug 1984 to Jan 1985 and again from April 1995 to Nov 1995. This is considered a home placement for Pluto, where he naturally expresses himself at his best. Those people born in the years of Pluto in Scorpio have Plutonian energy about them and are considered the Scorpio generation. However, depending on how he’s positioned in everyone’s individual birth chart, Pluto has bigger or lesser influence on one’s life.

Pluto in the First House gives a very noticeable and attractive but also mysterious and even dark personality to those individuals as the First House is the House of self. Free Spirited Mind gives an excellent explanation about it: “The First House signifies what someone IS. This means, that the body, the mind and the behaviour of the native are largely influenced by this house and any planet or mathematical point that is positioned inside it.” Therefore, here Pluto gives a very strong Plutonian energy to the individual, making them intense, dark and mysterious. Those people have very dominating and powerful eyes and a piercing gaze that cannot remain unnoticed. In his Astrology, Karma & Transformation book, Stephen Arroyo suggests that First House Pluto’s “cooperation at a deep personal level is so difficult for them that they often wind up lonely and, in some cases, even alienated from friends and family. If the Pluto energy is used creatively here, the person can exhibit powerful concentration, dedication to higher spiritual or social ideals, and a remarkable depth of insight into life’s deeper meanings.

Plutonians are very secretive people who like keeping their personal life extremely private. They like surrounding themselves with mysteries and love being viewed as mysterious people living in the shadows. Pluto people are loners- they love spending time with themselves, exploring deep levels of their subconscious or just thinking over highly existential problems. Plutonians are very emotional and they love and hate passionately. They wouldn’t mind being in the company of people they hate because this drives their negative emotions (emotions feed Plutonians and are a driving force in their life). What they hate though, is being in the company of people they don’t care for. Plutonians consider communication with those people as a waste of time and no matter how much they are trying to hide their indifference and annoyance, it just shows up on their faces. This might be why people with strong Plutonian energy (Pluto in 1st House, Scorpio Ascendant, Scorpio Moon, Scorpio Sun, Pluto-Sun aspects etc.) are considered arrogant and sometimes even unsociable.

No matter the negative features a Plutonian might have, they are undoubtedly interesting people. They never pass unnoticed, although they try to as they hate being in the centre of attention. People either like or dislike them, there is no middle ground. What Plutonians need to learn is to tame the destructive energy within them or at least make it work for not against them. After all, Pluto is the planet of death and rebirth, meaning he kills one so that one can be born again stronger and wiser.

  1. Thank you so much! After a long time without researching about astrology and after having visited all pluto sites on the 1st house in my native language, I’m here, still very curious. My ascendant is Scorpio and pluto in the first house. That would make me a plutonian!? Cuz Pluto really influences me a lot… tbh this positioning is very hard for me, I’m unbearable to myself, I cannot deal with most people and most people can’t deal with me, cuz … I end up hurting people with my cruel words.
    I’m totally self-destructive and death is something that attracts me a lot because of my obsessive thoughts. It makes me really sick and rude. Loneliness is where I find some comfort, it’s where I don’t need to deal with anyone and with that I don’t have to deal with me, perhaps that is why plutonians need to isolate themselves sometimes.

    And you how do you deal with your plutonian side?

    • Hi Daniel, thanks a lot for stopping by! Yes, you’re a Plutonian with Pluto in your First house and ascendant in Scorpio. As hard as it is, I quite like this placement cause it’s both a curse and a blessing. If you learn how to control that huge amount of energy, you could turn it into your benefit. Scorpio is the sign of death and rebirth and Pluto is the ruler of the Underworld, so it’s quite normal that death is a big topic here. But so is life as for me, death and life are the two sides of the same coin. There isn’t death without life, and life without death.

      Pluto, much like Saturn, is a teacher. The area of life he affects is where we need to put the most effort in order to overcome the negative influence and turn it into a positive one. I don’t think any of Pluto’s placements is an easy one cause each area of life is important, so I wouldn’t say Pluto in the First is the most difficult.

      My advice to you is to keep exploring and analyzing yourself but don’t just focus on the negatives as there’s plenty of positives too 😊
