People who have their natal Pluto in the 6th house will have a very intense or even dark and hidden job. As Pluto rules Scorpio and the 8th house, all jobs connected to death, sex, the unknown and taboos are career possibilities for such a native. What type of these rather uncanny jobs he will follow mainly depend on other indicators, such as planets aspecting natal Pluto or also present in the house, while also the house’s ruler and possible planets in the 10th house. Nevertheless, no matter what job he chooses, it will at least sound weird to the other people’s ears and thus might even remain hidden.
Generally, 6th house Pluto people do not like to serve others and may have experienced childhood traumas with having to serve someone. They tend to abstain from volunteering of any kind, and put very strict borders in their duties and responsibilities at work. They are constantly observing their co-workers or customers, always ready to retaliate when someone tries to use them or elsehow mishandle them. If Pluto is adversely aspected, they are often forced to work by their employers and the work atmosphere is rather bad. Even when the native’s natal Pluto is well-aspected, their job will have a lot of power struggles.
Pluto rules the microcosm and the things that we do not see, so when it is located in the house of jobs, it can create a molecular scientist, a person who works at a nuclear plant and many more jobs (mostly governmental positions) that are exploring the unknown borders of our reality. In addition, this placement will give the miner, the professional speleologist and the person who will be occupied in the salvage industry. The native can also be employed in other governmental services, usually of a secret nature.
As Pluto is the planet of death and transformation, its presence in the 6th house can create the mortician, the undertaker, or even the person who creates sculptures for graves. All the jobs that are morbid and somehow connected with death are parts of this category. This connection might even be indirect; yet will definitely be present. The taboo atmosphere will manifest through whatever job it is, as there are possibilities that in the end the native’s job is chosen by a tenth house indicator and not the 6th one. Thus, someone with such a natal Pluto could be employed at a mortuary in his youth, but then will manage to become a fiction writer and in changing his career, he will still carry that obscure atmosphere in his writings.
This natal placement is also prominent in prostitutes. Be careful, this does not mean that whoever has Pluto in the 6th house is into selling his body! This would mostly happen when Pluto is adversely aspected by Mars, Venus, Saturn or the lights (the Sun and the Moon), and has many more possibilities to happen if a T-square occurs between Pluto and two planets. A T-square is when a planet squares two other planets, which at the same time, are opposite between themselves. Usually, such natives are working under some other person’s guidance or even manipulation and pressure; high-end call girls are not the case. A person who has a 6th house Pluto experiences his job receptively and is submissive to his employer, and in case of difficult aspects with Mars and Saturn, there can be a lot of cruelty or even physical abuse present. On the other hand, a positively aspected Pluto might bring a job as a simple cashier in a sex shop. Pluto in the 6th house, of course, tends to keep such jobs a secret, as the majority of people have taboos and prejudices.
The 6th house is the house ruling the native’s health, and a well aspected Pluto in the 6th house will grant to him strong recuperative powers and a great amount of physical strength. On the other hand, if Pluto is adversely aspected, the native should be very careful with his health. Pluto rules the reproductive system, and difficult aspects to it from Mars, Saturn or Uranus will bring a lot or problems, including sexually transmitted diseases. Mars is usually responsible for surgeries, while Uranus makes the health issue appear suddenly. In addition, another sensitive part concerning health is the colon area and the bladder, while the native can also frequently suffer from hemorrhoids. The native should also beware of stray small animals that possibly carry diseases like rabies; ticks, spiders and snakes might pose a threat, while also he should beware of not getting poisoned by deadly mushrooms.
Generally, natives with Pluto in the 6th house should be very careful not to transfer the tensions of their work as health issues to their body. Such a native should battle stress as hard as he can so that it does not manifest as a disease. The best remedy for Pluto issues is joy. If you have a natal Pluto in the 6th house, we know that this might be difficult. But put a smile on your face, and support that Pluto through any possible positive aspect or transit that you can have.
