Pluto in 3rd House
An individual with Pluto in the 3rd house is compelled to move beyond a superficial understanding of all that is trivial. In fact, they believe that knowledge is power and also empowering, and the deeper we understand something the better. With Pluto there is tremendous depth and it is often referred to as the mind of the detective and researcher.
When passionately interested in a subject, they never let up and will leave no stone unturned until they reach to the bottom of something. The ability to ply information out of others, in a sometimes probing and forceful manner may be evident. However, they usually hate it if somebody else analyzes them in the exact same in the same way.
The outer planets display a huge amount of collective energy in the spheres of life indicated by their house position. Pluto in the 3rd house has the ability to gain intellectual power, and massive reserves of concentration with a penetrating and obsessive mind. Moreover, they have the ability to look deep into something and uncover its mystery.
Anything deep, complex and challenging to the intellect is sought and hobbies may involve solving mystery books, puzzles, and codes by using their powerful analysis. Psychological topics may be of interest, as they enjoy delving into the minds of others. Sensitive, dark and taboo subjects can also appeal, and an interest in the occult and all types of unsolved mysteries in the universe.
Pluto here has a deep well of resources in the 3rd house, writing, communicating, and speaking are areas in life that where they have a profound effect upon others. What the person says carries emotional weight and it is not taken lightly by anybody. Pluto in this position enjoys deep conversations and reaches the heart of the matter.
Healing through all these channels is possible, but sometimes there is difficulty in conversing with other people and there is a secretive, hidden, and extremely quiet manner. On the other hand, they may even be a compulsive talker, sarcastic and seek to dominate by force of speech, ideas, and intellectual confrontations.
If you actually use the written or spoken word to convey your deeper feelings, your writings will be aimed at altering the very way in which we look at life. In short, in one way or another, you aim to introduce a more profound intellectual tone to your surroundings.
When they feel the need to share information and knowledge, they go in for the kill. They are determined to make an impact, positive or negative. Pluto in the 3rd house can also have a deep knowledge of their local area, and nothing passes the powerful senses of survivalist Pluto. The individual could be deeply paranoid and worry about street crime and local criminals.
Pluto in some cases kills off all communication and some talk so much and dominate a conversation that no one gets a word in edgeways. Conversation can stop dead, if they reveal too much and say something that is considered taboo, destructive, ugly and even unnecessary. However, it could be necessary, because they hate superficiality, and there is a need with all Pluto placements to survive and no more is the instinct stronger than in the 3rd house sphere. Sometimes a mental breakdown occurs that destroys everything that was previously known and sends them into a crisis.
Early education may have felt invasive or threatening and sometimes they can be persecuted by school friends or teachers. A crisis at school may have deeply affected the person. The 3rd house rules our siblings and they are powerfully affected by this early relationship. Perhaps they had an over controlling and dominant brother or sister and they verbally abused them as a child. They may have been over-protective of a sibling, always sensing danger. A sibling may be emotionally complex and there are power struggles and confrontations and much competition.
It must be said that equally, there can be a positive, transforming and extremely close bond with a sibling when Pluto is in the 3rd house. Pluto tends to be an all or nothing planet and it is usually one extreme or the other. Pluto will withhold something in order to gain more power and control over the environment. In early childhood, there may have been a time when information proved to be dangerous. Perhaps thinking something bad and it happened and it created paranoia and secrecy.
The Plutonian conflict may be shown with neighbours and there are power-struggles and tensions. When the mind is exposed to the underground, on an intellectual level, they comprehend things deeply and it’s difficult to be superficial and take things lightly. There is often a heavier outlook and a deadly serious view on topics. If other people’s views appear trivial and shallow, they seek to bring exposure.
Brutal honesty is present, but most the time they need to have something profound to say. Taken to the highest possible transformation, knowledge is power, and being so gifted at seeing other people’s psychology, they know just what to say and how to have the greatest impact.
Pluto in the 3rd House
You rarely accept what you hear or what you read as truths. Your mind is very analytical and you instinctively search for hidden meanings. You can be exceptionally persuasive in the way you express yourself, whether through the spoken or written word, simply because you communicate with authority, conviction, strength, and decisiveness.
You tend to learn through observation rather than by asking questions. In fact, you may be somewhat resistant to learning directly from others, preferring to be self-taught. You might fear the loss of self through self-expression, and thus you might choose your words carefully as to avoid letting others know too much about you.
