Composite Moon Conjunct Pluto

The composite chart is created by taking the midpoint between pairs of each of two person’s natal planets (in this case Moon and Pluto) and using them to create a new, third chart. The composite chart is not the same as synastry, which examines how one person impacts the other. Instead the composite chart represents the relationship as a whole giving insight into the dynamics upon which it, as a relationship, functions.Unknown

The composite Moon represents the heart of the relationship, the feeling aspect, the emotional guts and glue. Unlike the composite Sun, which expresses the more conscious purpose of the relationship, the composite Moon operates unconsciously, feeding the relationship with that which it needs to continue. The placement of, and aspects made to, the composite Moon symbolise that which the individuals party to the relationship feel they share in common. Likewise, the composite Moon indicates where, and how, the relationship manifests emotional distress.

Pluto is the planet of death and regeneration. Hence composite Pluto suggests that which will cause the relationship to experience periods of heavy change. In any relationship, composite Pluto is often experienced as power plays and in sexual relationships, it gives special power to, and impact on, the emotions of the involved individuals. Let’s be very clear about this – with composite Pluto these emotions are never one-sided. Both parties experience (and will be forced to react to) the powerful drama enfolding between them. Composite Pluto shows how each of them will be personally transformed by the relationship.

Composite Moon conjunct Pluto is extremely intense. There can be nothing casual about the relationship with this aspect. It is likely to plunge each of the involved individuals into emotional depths which they have never (and may never again) experienced. This may make them  feel (alternatively) deliriously happy and wretched. With Pluto involved, nothing will ever be shallow. This composite aspect often manifests in a codependent relationship generating excessive reliance of one party  upon the other to obtain his/her personal self-esteem and/or identity.

imagesIt will be extremely difficult to walk away from a relationship with Composite Moon conjunct Pluto. At best, there will be an intense and enduring love between the parties. At worst, it will tear them apart. Feelings (on both sides) about this relationship will often run so high that it will difficult to rationally evaluate it. Remember that composite Pluto usually manifests in power plays and with composite Pluto conjunct Moon, these power plays will likely result in attempts to control each other’s feelings.

Advice: Lighten up, take it easy, enjoy each other calmly and quietly once in awhile. Keep plenty of personal space, maintain separate interests, and try extra hard not to always push each other’s emotional buttons.

  1. This describes exactly situation where I am in with my current love interest.
    Intensity feels almost like a kind of curse you can’t possible leave but staying is even more difficult because we are both overwhelmed with deep feelings for each other..
    Our Pluto moon conjunction is in 7th house in Libra of the Composite chart so, this makes us even more “co- dependent” then? Ascendant is Pieces (sun conjunct Jupiter in 12 house)

    1. Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and read this blog post. I hear your confusion and pain about the intensity of feelings that you can’t control. I’m wondering if there is some karmic connection between you two that is presenting itself to be worked on or healed? Might a past life regression help you here? Perhaps also consider what transits or progressions in your own chart we’re active when you and your love interest first met? You may never have control over your feelings but you always have control over your choices and actions and the more you understand what the situation may be asking from you personally, the better off you will be. Good luck and always remember that the composite chart is made up of two charts so go back to your chart (fully 1/2of this whole) and concentrate on you!

  2. Hello, I haven’t seen your replay earlier. Thank you very much!
    question about karmic connection could be the reason for the strong feelings. My South node is at 27 degree Gemini (1st house) is in almost exact conjunction with his Saturn at 26 degrees Gemini and his Ascendant is Capricorn (Sun Sign Pisces). I am Capricorn Sun sign (Gemini ascendant) and my Saturn retrograde is at 29 degree Gemini also conjunct his South node at 26 degrees Gemini but wide orb.
    Would you consider this as “karmic” binding aspects? And, is it a healthy karmic connection or is it something we should better learn to let go..
    At the moment we have no contact for one month but I still love him and think about him and I am having heavy transit of Saturn Pluto exact on my Sun at 12 January so.. I am wondering what would it bring..
    I should concentrate on my chart probably to find out what is relationship asking from me?
