PLUTO in the 10th house of Solar return chart

 Pluto rules births, and deaths, and complicated processes. Problems must be addressed, and whatever you plan to initiate, the transition will probably evolve over a year's time.

If you are employed by others, you might wish to change jobs, especially if old professional pursuits are no longer fulfilling. On the other hand, you can instill new life into your old job.

Introducing new concepts, tasks, and philosophies to your manager or co-workers can lead to a changed job description, or future career possibilities. 

Ambition is implied by this placement, and advancement is possible for those who are willing to work for it, or are able to negotiate the corporate power structure. A compulsive push for success now will enable you to make career moves which propel you to a higher professional bracket. Use ambition to hang in there for the long haul and finish those long-term projects which are crucial to advancement. 

Career difficulties are al so associated with 

Pluto in the 10th house. Sometimes the push for success ends in a power struggle for ad-vancement or a manipulative conflict for psychological supremacy. Controlling power is an issue here, and sometimes the emphasis is on a negative exploitation of position and authority. You can be the victim or the perpetrator; most likely you play both roles. An obsession with advancement breeds workaholic tendencies and an unhealthy working environment. Within this climate, power plays begin to take precedence over promotion as manipulative tactics disrupt normal business. just as hard work and healthy ambition push you toward success, psychological complexes and power struggles can thwart your efforts. Within this arena of struggle, conflicts with an authority figure are possible, and not just those in the business world. Government officials, probation officers, and sometimes parents fall into the authoritarian category. If you are in a middle management position, how you handle authority can be as important as how well you follow directions. 

Power issues are not limited to the work environment, but will arise in all areas of life. The type of power you are attuned to will be representative of the area of awareness you are 

working on. Some will be made aware of physical force, others psychological control, still others will focus on spiritual power. Each level of insight can correspond toan awakening. Al-though the 10th house is the house of career, it is also the house of destiny, and of those issues and choices which will have a strong effect on the destiny path. 

It is during this year that some are given a destiny choice. They may continue in their current pattern of growth and behavior, or they may make a leap in consciousness. There is a fork in the road and a decision to be made. You will not pass this way again. The opportunity is now and the only thing standing in the way is fear. Options are so far reaching that they pro-duce remarkable changes which might force old situations and relationships to fall away or completely transform. The magnitude of the decision will not escape you. But the choice is there for those who wish to go on to greater.
