SUN OPPOSING PLUTO
This aspect depicts conflict which, when resolved, results in growth. Oppositions show a tug of war between opposing forces. If they are resolved, then the oppositions become the backbone and strength of the chart.
It is important to understand that the Sun rules masculine energy, the identity, ego, individuality, power and pride, while Pluto rules transformation through destruction, only to end up in reconstruction. Pluto is powerful and behaves like plutonium, where it completely destroys only to rebuild anew. Pluto levels one thing to cause something else to rise up out of the ashes, just like the phoenix-rising arises from the ashes. Pluto destructs in order to reconstruct and there is where the transformation takes place.
This is the perfect example of an overbearing nature. When you take into account the Sun rules the individual's will and Pluto destroys and rebuilds through its power, then you can see how this can be a dangerous combination. This aspect will influence the individual to force themselves, beliefs or circumstances on to others. This is the placement of the dictator or one who dictates others by trying to transform others, or circumstances, or even the world, through their own needs and beliefs. When others do not follow the leader (the one with this placement) then all hell breaks loose and conflict is the result.
There is very high self-expression with this placement, which can be channeled creatively and productively in the mature and self-actualized individual. If channeled inappropriately, this energy will either aggravate or intimidate others and then the individual can count on getting no support from anyone.
This aspect can really rally a protest. When this aspect is present in the natal chart or shows up as a transit, then involvement in revolutions, such as social or political must be avoided. It's just too much to handle and it will probably turn out bad. It's just too aggressive. Remember, Pluto is the higher octave of Mars.
The Sun opposing Pluto is also highly aggressive toward romance and sex. This is because the Sun naturally rules the 5th house of romance, dating and intimacy, while Pluto naturally rules the 8th house of sexual desire, genitalia and intercourse. This can turn out looking like bondage, violence or even worse to get the sexual desires met while exerting one's physical power on someone else.
Transformation is the key to this aspect and taking yourself to a higher level of acting and reacting. It is much like the butterfly that is emerging from the cocoon. However, the process is not necessarily an easy one. You will need to work your way out of the cocoon, say goodbye and fly away. The drawback is that the birth process is not easy and could be painful or scary. However, the reward is that you will feel reborn and be able to live your life much closer to your true nature.
