Pluto in Virgo: How It Shapes Your Personality and Life

The position of Pluto in your natal chart reveals the transformations due to take place in your life and how you channel your core truths and restorative power.

Pluto in Virgo

The natives born during Pluto’s transit through Virgo may feel this urge to change the world from an early age or on the contrary, they might keep searching for their purpose, without understanding that, deep inside, they’ve known it all along.

However, in spite of their determination and high-strung ideals, there may still be concerns that others would shun them, that they would look down on them for such naïve ideals. It’ll be quite difficult to fulfill these humanitarian desires if these natives don’t toughen up and hopefully, this will come with age.

Pluto in Virgo in a nutshell:

  • Style: Healing and perceptive;
  • Top qualities: Committed, perfectionistic and sensual;
  • Challenges: Fussy and disruptive;
  • Advice: You can gain more efficiency when working with others;
  • Celebrities: Julia Roberts, Tom Cruise, Sharon Stone, Uma Thurman, Mariah Carey.

Personality traits

As a Plutonian Virgo, you are a very intelligent individual who always prefers to do things with utmost seriousness, letting nothing escape out of control.

You observe, analyze, organize your workspace so that it helps with efficiency, and you strive to become better at doing your job.

Nothing is more important than this perfectionism, this deep desire to develop. Because you are also pragmatic and see reality for what it is, the solutions you find to any given problem are always the best ones you could find.

These natives seem to have everything planned out from the very beginning. Having to realize one day that something has appeared that impedes your plan would be akin to losing a limb.

The most likely thing to happen, actually, is the change in and of itself. The transformation of society, the change in the mentality of the people, there are many changes that could amount to great risks in this regard. As a result, you try to keep everything under control and hope for the best.

Those born with Pluto in Virgo in their natal chart can be very attentive to the details, always analyzing and observing the minute changes, which is why they would be perfect working as a scientist or a doctor.

Both jobs require one to be incredibly patient, calm, and very meticulous with how they deal with the problems at hand.

Speaking of problems, these natives thrive when confronted with challenging situations. They adapt, become better at what they do, and eventually overcome even impossible odds in order to reach their goals.

One of the personal issues that they have to deal with is the perpetual irritated attitude when they have to deal with less amiable people.

Perfectionism, as always, can lead one to the lack of happiness, self-pity, an unfulfilled lifestyle, constant disappointments, and a low self-esteem.

Plutonian Virgos fall into this category quite…. perfectly, pun intended. What they have to do in order to avoid such sticky situations is to become more self-aware, take a step back and approach situations with a clear mind and a steady hand.

Not everything has to be perfect, and not everyone looks for perfection. Failures are but a way to hone their skills further and gain experience.

Pluto in Virgo in love

With perfectionism in mind, you can of course guess that even love relationships for Plutonian Virgos tend to be more realistic than the norm.

Without beating around the bush, let’s just say that these natives are always looking to find an intellectual partner, someone with whom they could share their bed, but also someone to talk to when they felt like.

Sapiosexuality is a thing in and of itself and these people are most certainly the exponents of this trend. As such, they strive to find a cultivated partner their entire life.

And even when the situation appears to be hopeless, they don’t seem to give up but rather become incentivized to try harder.

All in all, it’s a fact that those born with Pluto in Virgo in their astrological chart have certain expectations from a relationship, and they only want someone who can match their life perspective and their actions.

The Pluto in Virgo man

The last time Pluto transited Virgo, all the military conflicts and wars that had taken place, especially the World Wars, had taken a huge toll on men as a whole, having distorted their image, and had also crippled them emotionally.

Those individuals who escaped from the front were unfit to lead a normal life, always haunted by nightmares, anxiety, the perpetual feeling of fear, adrenaline surging through their veins every time someone took them unprepared.

With the naturally introverted personalities of the Plutonian Virgo men, they were basically condemned to a life of solitude.

However this is not entirely true about the heritage the man with Pluto in Virgo carries, because this man is resolute and knows what fulfillment looks like for him.

He will be involved in humanitarian activities, even attend philanthropic events, beyond the purpose of personal satisfaction.

He is a pretentious lover, but he gives as much as he expects, plus he accepts that gender roles have changed in time so will wish to be his partner’s equal.

The Pluto in Virgo woman

Plutonian Virgo women, on the other hand, carry the heritage of previous feminist movements and borrow from the courage of their ancestors.

Their modern spirit is most noticeable when it comes to choosing their life partner and when they start laying out their expectations.

This lady wishes to succeed both in her career and family life and will demand the same from any of her girlfriends.

She may have her personal blockages and limitations that stave off her enthusiasm but these don’t often come to play, unless she is not receiving the support she is waiting for, from her family.

The woman with Pluto in Virgo can be cynical and outspoken when something bothers her and won’t hesitate to point out, loud and clear, any injustice that happens to her.
