Pluto Positives (Pluto in Capricorn & Successful Professions)

Pluto brings us to our knees, Wikipedia
While Mr. Dark One, Pluto has gained a bad boy reputation, especially now that he's in Capricorn engaged in a boxing match with Uranus, some people actually flourish with Pluto in Capricorn.  The process involves breaking down old structure so that we can rebuild new structure thus transforming how we live on the planet.  And when you think about it, if it wasn't for Pluto and Uranus butting heads, we would be in dire straits.  After all, this old structure (call it patriarchal) is destroying the planet, wrecking people's lives, and leaving some folks living in cars.  We can't blame Pluto for those things, now can we?

So I'm listing 5 professions (among many) who benefit from Pluto in Capricorn (which moves into Aquarius in 2024).  Some of these professions flourish at the beginning of this long transit and others flourish during the clean process, and others in the rebuilding process.  Capricorn rules all structure including body structure (bones, skeleton and skin) so if you work in a profession dealing with those body parts, you're in luck.  Capricorn also represents financial institutions, government, the corporate work place and other situations needing mass restructuring.  If you're in those professions, you'll need all the help you can get!  Unless, you are on the more innovative sidelines reinventing these endeavors.

1) Chiropractors, bone specialists, dermatologists, dentists...

If you work with the body's structure (teeth, bones, skin) then you would find plenty of patients and clients now because Pluto in Capricorn affects the structure of the body, and most often in an adverse way.  Our bodies need more minerals at this time, especially for folks with strong Capricorn or Cancer in their natal charts.  Skin disorders, premature aging, degenerative bone diseases, broken bones, chiropractic concerns (though the spine is technically ruled by Leo/Sun), mineral deficiency, and teeth problems (especially relating to gums) all are prominent at this time.

If you're not getting many clients or patients, then get out there and advertise.  These professions should boom under these aspects. Since chiropractors are considered "out there" by some, I imagine that this profession also gets a boost from Uranus, so the more unusual you seem, the better.

2) Intuitive Life Coach, motivational speakers, self-help authors

This one is a no-brainer, really because when people experience a Pluto transit the only sane place to turn is to self-help gurus, life coaches, and motivational speakers.  Many of these folks have their own stories to tell about transformational life experiences so they shed a light on the dark road ahead.  I'm going to lump astrologers into this category too because of the Uranus square to Pluto, (Uranus representing astrology).

Many people going through the Pluto and Uranus transits early (first week of a Cardinal Sign) will most likely join this group and use their experiences to help others.

3) Engineers, architects, construction, and green builders

When Pluto first went into Capricorn, this group suffered a great loss.  The dismantle process and deconstruction had just begun and no one calls an architect to build during the fall of a tower.  We usually wait until the dust has settled and we can make plans for a new structure.  Architects are unable to hold up crumbling walls and engineers stand around scratching their heads wondering what went wrong.

However, at this point, we should see a boom with the process of deconstructing buildings and recycling the materials.  We will start to see a boom in renovation and repair work to structures damaged by weather and time.  Then toward the end of the Pluto transit we will see an extensive rebuilding process around sustainable architecture and green technology.  So those green jobs we have been waiting for are on their way, just be patient. We might have to wait until Uranus enters Taurus (the sign of the builder).  It will happen.

4) Urban Farmer and community activists (around food security)

With Pluto opposing Cancer (the sign of nourishment, food, security), we need better access to fresh and healthy food, especially in "food" deserts in urban areas.  With the loss of farmland to agri-business (large corporate farms) and development (real estate), we need to come up with innovative ways of growing food for growing populations in urban areas--enter the urban farmer. And the urban farmer needs to partner with community food activists and grassroots groups.  This is where Uranus in Aries and then later Uranus in Taurus come into play.

This profession is only getting underway at this time.  It will pick up steam as we move closer to 2024 when Pluto enters the sign of the people, Aquarius.

5) Quantum Physicists, teachers of new science and new spirituality 

Quantum physics has been around for nearly 100 years in its modern form, but it is only starting to catch on now with larger groups thanks to the work of Gregg Braden and renowned quantum physicists.  As we deconstruct old structure this includes religion and modern science based on Newtonian theory.  The irony is that quantum physics has been around since ancient times, but few people understood it or even felt they needed it (thanks to everyone joining the status quo and not thinking for themselves).

However, I believe that quantum physics and the understanding of it, will heal communities and heal the world because of the kernels of truth found in this far-out science.  Conventional science has pulled the wool over our eyes and taken away our knowledge of how to heal ourselves.  Dominant religions have also caused us to doubt our inner voice (is the devil speaking to you?) and cause us to forge co-dependent relationships with religious orders (I had better consult with the Pope or Krishna before making that decision).

New Spirituality/Science doesn't toss out the baby with the bathwater (that tired old cliche), but instead causes us to detach and reexamine everything we have ever been told.  And how much of the garbage that has been fed to us for thousands of years has actually served us?  For instance, if everyone knew that there is no empty space between us or anything, then we would treat ourselves and others a lot better.  When we are rude to someone else, we are rude to ourselves.  Why do you think we feel so bad?  It's like a crazy boomerang or some people call it karma, but it's deeper than that.  Much deeper than that.

So if this field of endeavor interest you then get on board.  We need you as teachers and practitioners.  Gregg Braden can't do this all alone.

Other professions that could do well now are body workers, energy healers (but the greatest boon will come when Pluto moves into Aquarius), people using ancient healing modalities for the modern age, detectives, investigative journalists, community and city planners, bicycle makers, credit unions, local banks, angel investors, community builders, people who teach life skills, etc...(Feel free to add to this list).


  1. Very interesting article! Thanks!

    I am thinking on studying Reiki, Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupunture. I have a chart that calls for it.... here's the link:

    What do you think?

  2. I like Sonia Choquette's approach to answering questions. Take a deep breath or two, then exhale through your mouth. Then ask your heart this question. The first answer that comes up which is more of a feeling than a thought, is your answer.

    Your heart knows.
