Pluto in Aquarius will trine Libra. In theory, Libra will be enhanced and empowered by the transit but this is an example of situation where it helps to look a bit deeper which Libra resists!
Now I’m sorry to say that but I have Libra and I understand this, My sister, who has studied astrology for as long as I have, summed it up, thirty years ago. “Libra doesn’t like pits in their cherries, never mind, pits in their stomachs.” That’s a fact and a Pluto transit is not going to change this!
Libra likes things to be “nice” and I mean, really, really, really, nice. The like to live in peace and harmony with love and beauty. The “surface” of things is just fine. I understand this, in spite of all my massive dark side and attraction to taboo. I mention this to illustrate how strong this quality is.
I could argue for Libra all day long this regard. We just don’t need turds in our punch bowls, okay? And who thinks it’s a good idea to pull back the beautiful doily to examine the ink spot below?
I don’t think Libra will be comfortable with this transit, even if it assists and improves them. It’s like getting your hair done by someone gross and disgusting. See what I mean? Libra recoils reading that. I would know!
Libra wants things to be fair and Libra wants control but Pluto is about power. Coiled up serpent power, which is something different. It clashes with “decorating” which is all about dressing things up, as opposed to cutting them open and digging in their guts. Libra also likes balance and Pluto is extreme!
Libra will not be able to avoid Pluto but due to the trine, you may be able to experience this transit on your own terms, sort of. Prepare to interact with and entertain powerful people. I believe your manners are the key to faring well with this. The power of grace.
Do you have planets in Libra? How do you feel about Pluto in Aquarius?
