Traits of Pluto in Capricorn

When you set your eye on a benchmark, you’ll hustle tirelessly to accomplish it, even if that means disappearing from life for a while to burn the midnight oil and get the job done. When you emerge, the results are spellbinding. People regularly remark at your amazing ability to pull things off.

If you are drawn to a traditional industry, you’ll rise to an executive position, climbing the ladder tenaciously until you reach the top. But you’re equally strategic, understanding that “it’s all about who you know.” Charming the power players will quickly earn you an invite into their elite circles—and a shortcut to the C Suite. And there’s no denying that you love being there! 

The competitive streak of Pluto in Capricorn

Having the planetary wealth-agent positioned at the top of your chart intensifies your competitive streak. You’re in it to win it! Whether you express that desire to be No. 1 outwardly or secretly push yourself to be the best, your drive is unmatched. With Pluto imbalanced, you risk becoming cutthroat, possibly acting upon a revenge fantasy in regrettable ways. Your evolution may involve redefining “success” as more of a collective victory than an individual gain. 

You have no shortage of big bold ideas, and it doesn’t take much persuading to get them off the ground. When you turn on the charm, you’re a magnet for magnates! People may buy into your plans based on the sheer force of your personality. Since Capricorn and the 10th house are associated with corporate entities, banks and governments, you may transform the industry from within. Whether you’re an investor or an environmentalist, you know how to work with “old money” types to bring about the new order. 

The mask of Pluto in Capricorn

Some people with this Pluto placement might actually hide behind superficiality, wearing professionalism like a mask to prevent others from probing into your inner world. Socially, you can work (and werk) any room, regaling the crowd with witty banter or pulling people into deep conversation where they confess all their secrets, giving you the upper hand. With your natural magnetism, you could find success as an influencer, getting behind a #sponsored product and taking your sales skills to the bank. 

The creativity of Pluto in Capricorn

Creative Pluto here can bring success through artistic pursuits: dance, film, music and art. Some may achieve celebrity status as a healer, faith leader or spiritual adviser. Believing that you’re “good enough,” however, may be a struggle in periods of your life. Capricorn and the 10th house are associated with perfectionism. Self-deprecating Pluto here can give you a raging case of imposter syndrome; yet no good ever comes from comparing and despairing.  

Your true healing takes place once you stop looking to others for validation and decide to be the authority of your own life. But that doesn’t mean you should go it alone. Surround yourself with supporters who bolster your confidence. This can help you stay purpose-driven when you want to drift—or run away and sabotage your well-deserved success.
