Natal Pluto in the 6th House

People who have their natal Pluto in their 6th house will have a very intense or even dark and hidden job. As Pluto is ruling Scorpio and the 8th house, all the 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 is mainly depending on other indicators, 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 many times 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 is ruling the microcosm and the things we do not see, so when he is located in the house of job he can create a molecular scientist, a person who works at a nuclear plant and a lot 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 his 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 a part of this category. This connection might be even indirect; yet will be definitely 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. Thus, someone with such a natal Pluto could be employed at a mortuary in his youth, but when will manage to become a fiction writer and change a 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 a 6th house Pluto is into selling his body! This would happen mostly when Pluto is adversely aspected by Mars, Venus, Saturn or the lights, and has a lot more possibilities to happen if a T-square occurs between Pluto and two planets. A T-square is when a planet is squaring two planets, who 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 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 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 is ruling the reproductive system, and difficult aspects to him by 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 he 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, the natives with Pluto residing in the 6th house should be very careful to not transfer the tensions of the 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.

    Nonsense about sex work aside – the authors low opinion of sex workers and classism is shining through and obscuring the facts – an interesting article, though I would argue that sexual work shows up with Venus in 8th as it is the house of other people’s money, but it makes sense that Pluto would be involved too. I know people who are involved in illegal trade who have Pluto in sixth…lol
