Personality traits

Plutonian Capricorn natives prefer working alone or at least having the choice of doing so. It’s not that they believe themselves to be superior to everyone else, but they want to be free to make their own choices.

And in this respect, they might even fight against the rules imposed by society, acting as temporary anarchists. Eventually, they do observe the traditional rules.

They are analytic and perfectly know how to get to the bottom of a problem, taking out the flaws and downsides. The status-quo is respected as long as it doesn’t inhibit their free will.

However, their built-in patient and cautious personality don’t allow for explosive changes to occur. A revolution is out of the question then.

Ambition and willpower are the key components of this native’s path through the world. They never abandon the boat once they’ve decided to pursue a course of action, even if the entire world may oppose them.

In this sense, Pluto’s transformative powers are miraculous and just what these natives need. They turn it all in their favor, eventually reaching the level they wanted from the very beginning, having the freedom to do as they see fit.

Moreover, under the influence of the Earthy Capricorn, it means that they are very preoccupied with material development and having a stable situation from this point of view has always been a primary focus of theirs.

They will want others to notice just how successful they are, but it’s not a superficial tendency, but rather a confirmation of their potential.

With prudence and a meticulous approach, they pave the path towards a brilliant future with nothing but their willpower and perseverance to play with.

Not even the strongest obstacles could hope to ever put a stop to their advance. They aren’t disappointed when stumbling over a challenging opponent or when faced with failure. Rather, they cherish any opportunity to evolve.

The good and the bad

A Plutonian Capricorn will always have his priorities set straight and won’t waste any time if he wants to pursue his objectives.

With a resolute attitude and an ever-renewing enthusiasm for action, this native gives their all on furthering their own desires. If the Pluto Capricorn finds himself to have strayed from the envisioned path, it won’t be long before a complete turn-around will take place, without any looking back.

This native is able to take on any opportunities to reanalyze their mindset and motivations, in order to check whether they’re correctly calibrated.

It doesn’t matter what obstacles present themselves because this native won’t give up even in the face of impossible odds. Better to die pursuing your dreams than wither in a corner, filled with regrets and disappointments.

With pragmatism and reason, Plutonian Capricorns manage to break apart all the chaos standing in front of them.

Even though they are more intellectually elevated than most other people, always seeking for the truth of the world, for the deeper aspects hidden in hard-to-find places, these natives are also materialists who work better when they know a substantial reward awaits them at the end.

Moreover, they may also appear as tedious and unwilling to commit to action because they prefer to take it all slowly with a step-by-step approach. In this sense, there’s no taking them out of their routine.

Pluto in Capricorn in love

Even though falling in love is an edifying experience for most people, and there are also plenty of reasons to believe love itself is a force to be reckoned with, those born with Pluto in Capricorn in their natal chart, don’t really buy into this view.

They don’t believe that love holds that great of importance to one’s self-development because it doesn’t really help with surviving in this cruel world. As such, they’re going to put it on the backburner until they manage to create a situation for themselves.

The only way they could look at love in a different light is if the partner would agree with being a comrade in arms, ready to assist against the struggles of existence.

In the fight for supremacy and social status, there will be many collateral victims and many conflicts that render many crippled. Hope you understand that these natives are not about beauty and romantic experiences, but rather want a worthy life companion.

The Plutonian Capricorns see love as a partnership, a life-long commitment to aid one another in times of need. They are pragmatic like that.

The Pluto in Capricorn man

The last generation of Plutonian Capricorn men marked the appearance of the ever-so-serious individual with a razor-sharp focus, cool attitude, and immense ambition.

These men let nothing stand in their way and even lack some basic empathic skills as they rationally approach day to day interactions.

With challenges waiting around every corner, they are always prepared for the worst, always rowing forward through the difficult storms and whirlwinds of life.

Emotionally, these men are truly lacking when compared to women with Pluto in Capricorn, but this can also be considered to be a myth. The truth remains that there are still things that touch their hearts. It may even be that their sensibility increases with age. Plus, deep inside, these men know that empathy and emotions are essential in relationships.

They might learn it the hard way or completely avoid them but they are aware of their importance. No one says that you should start crying whenever a tough situation appears, but at least admit that you do have feelings as a reaction to it.

The Pluto in Capricorn woman

During the time Pluto was last transiting the Capriorn, women did not feel inferior to their male counterparts and were determined to reach for the skies and put a firm grip on their potential.

With every opportunity that came their way, these women evolved and kept on advancing. However, unlike some other signs, they didn’t wish to partake in the political games of men, nor did they want to make a show of power in public.

Rather, these women were, and will always be, content with working behind the scenes, controlling the comings and goings of society just like a puppeteer controls their marionette.

You should never look down on someone just because she’s quiet and keeps to herself. You don’t know what lays dormant inside of her, and this was exactly the case with these Plutonian women.

Romantically, these women are a little lacking than most of their peers, in the sense that they aren’t as sensible and gullible. They realize that a relationship is actually a power-struggle between two opposing sides, and they aren’t willing to give up on their freedom yet.
