Uranus and Pluto in the Seventh House

the sixties

Outer planet conjunctions are some of the most powerful astrological events, as they signify the beginning of a cycle involving two transpersonal archetypes. Transpersonal means beyond the personal. On a daily level, we feel (Moon), talk (Mercury), flirt (Venus), and so on. The outer planets concern more life-changing experiences, and when they are connected to personal planets, our mundane activities serve as a channel through which these archetypal energies express themselves. For example, with a Uranus-Venus aspect, Uranus challenges Venus to find alternative or innovative ways to relate or create art. With Pluto-Mercury aspects, Pluto intensifies Mercury’s message, giving the messenger planet the power to transform with words.

Outer planets also express themselves in a specific area of a native’s chart. The horoscope is divided by space and time into twelve parts called houses — and the Seventh House, which corresponds with where the Sun would be in relation to the horizon before it sets, governs the native’s partnerships.

Uranus and Pluto conjoined in the late 60s, a time of tremendous tumult and transformation. Uranus is the planet of revolution and sudden change, while Pluto is the planet of death and rebirth, destroying the outmoded to create something more authentic. The social revolt, experimentation, violent protests, and rock ‘n’ roll that defined this era were all part and parcel of this outer planet conjunction. Anyone born around this time — and using a ten degree orb, we’re talking between 1961 and 1970 — will have this energy imprinted in their chart. And since a house more or less contains 30 degrees — depending on your location of birth and the house system you use — Uranus and Pluto possibly occupy the same house using an even wider time range.

If you were born within the date range specified above, you have a more or less 1 in 12 chance of having a Uranus-Pluto conjunction in your Seventh House. Because these outer planets conjoined in Virgo, those natives with Pisces Rising would most likely have these planets in the Seventh House. You could also have late Aquarius Rising, which would give you Leo on your Descendant and much of Virgo in your Seventh House. (Uranus was in Leo and Libra during the very beginning and end of this conjunction, so don’t take my word as gospel — look at your chart. If you don’t have a copy of your chart, you can easily find out your Rising Sign — and see which house(s) Uranus and Pluto occupy — if you know your exact time and location of birth.)

If you do have these planets in your Seventh House, you may experience the energies of these outer planets in your relationship life. Following are some basic interpretations associated with this placement, but note that there are surely more that I have neglected to mention:

  • Pluto — relationships as a crucible in which you undergo rebirth; power struggles in relationship; being manipulated, abused, or controlled by a partner; being attracted to someone powerful, intense — an agent of transformation, possibly a Scorpio or Scorpio Rising.
  • Uranus — experiencing unpredictability or sudden turnarounds in relationships; needing independence in partnership; attraction to an alternative or status quo-challenging relationship, or to a partner who embodies these qualities, possibly an Aquarius or Aquarius Rising.

The closer these two planets are to each other in your Seventh House, the more the quality of the conjunction itself — as opposed to the influence of two discrete planets — will influence your relationship life. (If you are interested in mundane astrology, Bill Streett has written an interesting essay on the Pluto-Uranus Cycle.) If either of these planets are within five degrees of your Seventh House cusp, they will have even more of an impact.

    This is sort of an off-shoot of the main topic here: So, for people born within this generation, especially those who are only a couple of years apart, when we look @ synastry, & when their outer planets conjoin (Pluto conjunct Pluto, Uranus conjunct Uranus etc.), or they make aspects to each other’s personal planets same as they do in their natal chart (e.g. Pluto squaring my Venus in my chart & someone else’s Pluto conjunct my Pluto, again squaring my Venus in synastry), does it mean that such influences are not important? I ask this only because most astrology books seem to dismiss these interaspects with outer planets as ‘generational’influences, rather than personal influences. Some books say that they matter only if within an exact degree. But since these planets move so slowly, if you’re born too close to each other, they are guaranteed to be within a degree or so. So how does one interpret these interaspects?

  2. Jeffrey Kishner says:

    @shygirl, since the interaspect is simply mirroring your natal aspect, I would only give it attention if had a much tighter orb than your natal aspect.

    Oh my gosh, this is totally me! Has someone been tailing me or what?!!

    I am a Scorpio Sun, Pisces Asc., Uranus conjunct Pluto, and with Mars, Uranus and Pluto all in the 7th House (all Virgo). (In my chart, Uranus and Pluto are very close together – Pluto at 19.55 and Uranus at 22.49)

    For the last year I have been very interested in (somewhat involved with) a Scorpio (don’t know his ascendant). He totally has the whole turn you to jelly Scorpio gaze etc. The relationship has been very on again, off again. Significant age difference (though not really apparent visually).

    I did experience some control issues (nothing too heavy) in my previous very long relationship.

    This is almost scary the way it is bang on. But still cool!

    Me-Sun in Scorpio, Scorpio ascendant. Him Sun Virgo, ascendant ?. We both have Uranus and Pluto in the 7th house and my Pluto conjuncts his Venus.My natal chart has Venus opposite Saturn while his is Venus square Saturn. So I guess this relationship is doomed right from the start huh?

  5. Jeffrey Kishner says:

    You can’t have a Scorpio ascendant with Uranus and Pluto in the 7th house — Pluto in Taurus generation was 19th century.

    Thanks. I think I understand better. My guy friend is an Aries with Aries Rising. His natal Pluto & Uranus is in his 7th house. Not conjunct though.

    OMG, I’m so glad I came accross this blog topic. I am a virgo sun pisces rising and have mars, pluto and sun in 7th house and uranus in 8th. I have been obsessed with a scorp sun and rising for the past 6
    years. I actually thought he was the “one” for me only to realise only recently he isn’t. I’ve never had a relationship before and I really didn’t have a steady one with him either. It has been hard but I’m learning to deal with it.

    I myself have either obsessed over or been obsessed over and it is a very unbalanced way to be. I am trying now that he’s gone to look at myself and really try to control myself within relationships.
