Pluto is maybe the smallest planet of our Solar System, but his astrological importance is huge. The planet was discovered in 1930, while it was just recently categorized as a dwarf planet by the astronomical community. Pluto rules the sign of Scorpio, which was, until the planet’s discovery, ruled by Mars. Still, the red planet is considered co-ruler of the sign. In addition, Pluto is considered the ruler of the 8th house, and a full circle around the zodiac lasts for about 246 to 248 years. One can easily understand that during an average human life the planet will have traveled less than one-third of the full cycle. This makes the effects of Pluto’s transit long-lasting and even permanent, as there is no way to experience a similar transit again.…
