HOW MOON PLUTO ASPECT AFFECTS MOTHER-CHILD RELATIONSHIPS
If your natal Moon conjuncts, squares or opposes Pluto, then Plutonian qualities will enter into your lunar bonds (e.g. your relationship with your parents, spouse and children). Let’s look at a few examples, both positive and negative, of how this can look like in a mother-child relationship:
SHADOW: A CONTROLLING MOTHER
Pluto’s lesson is in learning how to wield power and influence over others. During childhood, this lesson often involves seeing a shadow form (a negative expression) of the use of power in your parents (the mother in this case).
A Moon Pluto aspect may suggest that your mother was very controlling, and didn’t honor your emotional needs. The control could have been overt (e.g. a dominant, smothering mother), or subtle (e.g. control through guilt or manipulation).
Growing up with such a mother could be taxing for your confidence, as you may feel powerless against her will.
If this applies to you, it’s possible that your mother still wields a great deal of power over you. Then your lesson might be to start honoring your own emotional needs, despite how your mother may react.
However, it’s important to note that not all Plutonian mothers are like this.
ALTERNATIVE: AN INSIGHTFUL MOTHER
There are many mothers who embody positive Plutonian qualities, such as self awareness and psychological insights.
These mothers learned how to wield their own power without having to control others. They influence their children through sharing of knowledge and insights, rather than through criticism.
If this describes your mother, then you’ve seen the positive potential of your Moon Pluto aspect.
MOON PLUTO ASPECT AND EMOTIONAL INFLUENCE
When someone with a powerful Moon walks into a room, it changes the mood of everyone. This dynamic works in both directions (positive and uplifting, or tense and depressing). If you have Moon conjunct, square or opposition Pluto, you have the potential to wield this kind of emotional influence. The question is, how consciously will you be able to use it?Keep Reading >>
