Rob Tillett offers a brief outline of the astrological meaning of the planet Pluto, a generational force of obstruction, transformation and regeneration located at the outer limits of our solar system.
Pluto, the lord of the underworld, symbolises the forces of deep transformation in our lives. A slow-moving outer planet discovered in 1930, Pluto's influence is in general most clearly noticeable as it distinguishes one generation from the next.
Transits of Pluto, especially to the Lights can last for three years or more and are exceedingly potent, signifying massive, long-term changes in life. Many modern astrologers consider Pluto the planetary ruler of Scorpio, but that is controversial and disputed. The traditional ruler of Scorpio is Mars. My own view is that Pluto may be considered a co-ruler
of Scorpio, but definitely a secondary influence to Mars with regard to the Scorpion.

Because Pluto, being invisible to the naked eye, was first discovered in 1930, there is no traditional rulership or exaltation. Modern astrologers generally agree that Pluto is well-placed in Scorpio and may be said to be the co-ruler of that sign, though Mars is definitely the traditional ruler. Traditional astrologers deny any sign-rulership to Pluto.
