Traits of Pluto in Sagittarius

How much to share and how much to hide? That is the question…and you’ll ponder it like Plato and Aristotle, thanks to this philosophical placement. Fate has appointed you one of life’s great seekers. Paradoxically, the search for higher truths can plunge you deep into the shadows.

You traffic in polarities, knowing that there can be no darkness without light, no love without heartbreak, no joy without despair. As such, you have an innate distrust for anything that seems “too easy” or superficial. You’d rather learn things experientially (and the hard way!), traveling the world and exploring a subject from every possible angle.  

Career paths for Pluto in Sagittarius

While you value authenticity, you may struggle with transparency and vulnerability when it comes to your own life. Pluto in Sagittarius is more interested in sussing out other people’s stories than revealing your own. Investigative journalism and scholarly research are right up your alley. You may be a prodigious writer and speaker who delivers sharp insights with cutting wit. But you can be highly strategic about how much you share, which can keep other people at arm’s length. This Pluto placement can cause you to come across as suspicious—and a little bit superstitious.  

Not that you care! That prickly outer shell is part of your identity. Plus, YOU know that behind it lies a sensitive heart. You have a unique ability to see people’s highest, truest potential.

Once you lean in to Pluto’s alchemical powers, you may find a path as a motivational speaker (and/or author), coach or teacher. Sagittarius and the 9th house are associated with beliefs. In your case, by holding the belief of “you can do it!” can literally provide the transformational boost others need to step into their power.To harness this gift, you must cultivate patience for your fellow humans.

Accept that you’re a faster, sharper learner than many folks—and try to remember that even YOU have your blind spots. Chief among them may be your struggle with timing. It’s not always the right moment—or the best idea—to speak your truth, especially if doing so will wound other people. At times you can be an idealist (or a full-on ideologue) who espouses a perspective to the point of zealotry. While you like to think of yourself as tolerant and open-minded, you can be highly intolerant of people who you consider small-minded, myopic or who simply don’t share your views.
