Plutonian Personality


By vdara124

How strong does Pluto figure in your astrological chart? Below is a VERY interesting take on how Pluto effects you! Look up your chart for free at and then take the test below. You’ll need to have some experience with astrology.

I’m extremely Plutonian! I scored 83 on this thing!! Let me know your score in the comments below.

From Donna Cunningham:


“Would you be considered a Plutonian person? You would if Pluto, the sign Scorpio, and the 8th house are strong in your birth chart. Below is a test to give these chart features a score and then a description of what that score says about you.  While there aren’t any scientific measurements of a planet’s strength, I’ve assigned number scores to certain chart factors, based on 40 years of doing charts professionally.

Full article here:

In each of the categories below, add the total score of all the factors that apply to that item, and write the total on the blank. Then add all the items up to find out how your Pluto ranks.

Here’s the Test: 

Pluto In   Aspect Points Score
Pluto conjunct, square,   trine, or opposite the Sun, Moon, Ascendant, or Midheaven 10 ea


Pluto conjunct, square, trine,   or opposite other planets 5 ea


Pluto in minor aspect to the   Sun, Moon, Ascendant, Midheaven, or other planets 2 ea


Part of major configuration like a stellium, T-square, or Grand   Trine 5 ea


Stellium Planets: Lead planet (first in   series) or Alpha Dog 5 ea


Pluto/8th   House Features  


Pluto in Scorpio 10


Ascendant in Scorpio 10 ea


Sun, Moon, or   Midheaven in Scorpio 5 ea


Other planets in   Scorpio 3 ea


Sun or Moon in the 8th   house 5 ea


Other planets in the 8th   house 3 ea




Add 2-5 points for each other factor you consider   important, such as Pluto aspects to the Nodes or having a Node or Part of   Fortune in Scorpio or the 8th house. Specify:   ______________________________________________ 2-5 ea






Score: 0-10 would be considered low, while 15-30 indicates a moderately strong influence. More than 30? Very strong indeed—you’re definitely a Plutonian!

(If you were born with the Pluto-Uranus conjunction of the 1960s, do both tests to find out which of the pair influences you most.)

What does “Being a Plutonian” Mean?Pluto Donna Cunningham Skywriter

Pluto has a wide range of expressions. At the unevolved level, Plutonians can engage in manipulating or coercing others, abuses of power, battles for control, resentments and grievances, failing for spite, and being a target of other people’s projections.

At the evolved level, the expressions can include transforming, healing, and empowering themselves and people and conditions they care about. Plutonians can have a natural gift for psychology, the healing arts, and understanding what makes people tick.

Pluto Issues: Power and control, trust, to discover and analyze what lies beneath the surface and eliminate the undesirable, separateness, holding on to things or feelings, revenge, death and endings, rebirth, healing, and transformation.

Worldly matters associated with Pluto/Scorpio:  healing, psychology, sexuality, wealth, uses and abuses of power, corruption and dirty dealing, secrets, exposes, occult, death and the afterlife, national and personal debt, stocks.

Examples of Plutonian occupations: psychotherapist, healer, medium, past life therapist, researcher, grief counselor, OB/GYN staff, cancer treatment, sex therapist, insurance agent, financial planner, stock broker.

Interpreting your Scores—ARE you a Plutonian?
No brief interpretation can fully explore Pluto’s status in an individual chart, but below are some qualities you might find in someone who has a strong Pluto vs. one with few supporting chart features.  (You’ll find more detailed interpretations in my hardcopy book, Healing Pluto Problems.  Kindle version at

If you had a high score, you’re an over-achiever in the matters of Pluto: You’re probably a Plutonian and therefore extremely strong in some the qualities listed above—the positive ones, the negative ones, or more likely both ends of the spectrum at once.  You may alternate between isolation and being joined at the hip in obsessive relationships; in the worst of times, you could be controlling; mistrustful; emotional intensity; bitter, vengeful. And/or you may be dedicated to healing yourself, and as you learn how to do that, can become a natural healer and catalyst in the lives of people around you.

If you had a low score, you may be an under-achiever in the matters of Pluto:If your score is down in the single digits, you may be lacking in some of the qualities listed above. You may not often look deeply within and may be missing important psychological insights that could help you change undesirable patterns. When you have a bad setback, you may take longer to mobilize yourself to come back from it.

On the bright side, you’re probably pretty easy going and not likely to carry grudges or harbor plans for revenge. Until you’re challenged by Pluto transits—like the Pluto-Uranus-Saturn cardinal t-square of 2010-12, you might not give a rat’s behind about transforming your self or your world.”
