Pluto is known as the Lord of the Underworld. Incredibly distant and inaccessible to us here on Earth, this enigmatic planet rules the most hidden and unreachable aspects of ourselves.
Fiery Sagittarius is a free and optimistic sign, deeply interested in honesty and justice. This sign of the Archer is a master of reassessment -- constantly taking in new experiences to expand and reshape their views. So when powerful Pluto strolls through Sagittarius’ cosmic front door, we're in for an intense dose of realization, elimination, and, ultimately, transformation.

When Pluto is in Sagittarius
Pluto has a reputation in the astrological neighborhood for bringing destruction in his wake. Indeed, this reputation is deserved, as its very presence stirs up latent issues of fear and control. Pluto does not care about our ego or social posturing -- his intention is to activate realms within us that we're trying to avoid. Thus, his influence can feel like disasters of the most personal and ruinous kind. But Pluto is not here to ruin us. Quite the contrary, Pluto is here to usher in the kind of profound shifts that lead to our deepest and most integral transformation.
Lucky for us, we’re talking about Pluto in Sagittarius. When Pluto’s work happens in bright and open Sagittarius, these shifts no longer occur in the shadows. The blaze of Sagittarius’ veracity displays every action of transformative Pluto to our conscious minds. Here, we are able to see the truths in our situation -- why things are falling apart where they are, but where they are falling together, too.
Nevertheless, Pluto is relentless in its impact. Relationships or marriages fraught with deception may crumble beneath us during this transit. Long-held beliefs and religious structures may fall apart when we realize they no longer apply to our lives. Addictions may suddenly demand conscious change. Neither Pluto nor Sagittarius have any patience for that which does not serve our highest purpose. This may not be an enjoyable time, but we can take comfort in seeing the whole picture, and in embracing the honest transformation this transit brings.
Pluto Retrograde in Sagittarius
Like many retrogrades, when Pluto moves backward through the sky, its focus turns wholly inward with little to no immediate outward impact. Pluto Retrograde is a time for reassessment and introspection. When this happens in curious Sagittarius, the personal insights we may glean can be endless.
We can take time during this retrograde to re-evaluate areas of our lives needing change. If we’re seeking true love, we can inspect negative beliefs we hold about ourselves and release lingering resentments. If we want to find our true purpose in life, we can evaluate work or habits we have that do not bring us joy. Can we eliminate them? Now is the time to consider what we truly want, and to clear out old patterns that are blocking our progress.
If you were born with Pluto in Sagittarius
Natal Pluto in Sagittarius has a leg up on many other Pluto placements. With this deep planet in such an expansive and aware sign, access to your subconscious is uncommonly available to you. Your natural openness toward what you find in your shadowy realms makes you a highly integrated and awake individual.
With your Pluto in Sagittarius, you are likely interested in philosophy and love talking about how shifts in our beliefs can make the world a better place. Confidence emanates from your very being and you attract all sorts of people to you. Your optimism and drive to live your personal truth, coupled with the wisdom afforded someone who knows the depths of their own soul, makes you admired by others and comfortable taking the reins in social situations.
Take care to stay connected to the experiences of others, however. With such natural clarity, it is easy for you to slip into feelings of superiority or frustration with others for not being on what you feel is “your level.” Remember, we are all on our own journey and we all have our own lessons to learn and to teach. Stay compassionate, stay kind, and stay humble. Everything in your life will benefit.
