Personal notes to help me to remember the meaning of Pluto in mundane astrology. In psychological astrology for individuals, Pluto can represent power, control, compulsion, obsession, anything that’s hidden, and of course the overused word “transformation” which is essentially death and rebirth.
In mundane astrology, we are concerned with societies and the world at large. So, taking each of the above key words of Pluto in astrology for individuals, we have:
- Power of the masses/collective
- Powerful and controlling governments that exercise control over its people e.g. totalitarian regime
- Compulsion of the nation, masses of people, maybe from an obsession with collective ideas and ideals
- Purge society from deep rooted problems, or an aspect of the group that isn’t functional anymore
