Pluto is widely known as the most intense planet, and when positioned in the house of partnerships he will definitely make the house matters be of a very dynamic nature. Natal Pluto in the 7th house indicates issues concerning control concerning the native’s partnerships; this is not necessarily bad though, as they will have tremendous transformative power on him and make him reborn under a new light.
With Pluto in the seventh, the marriage partner can have a rather obsessive and controlling character, with jealousy and suspicion being a common trait. Such a spouse is likely to be of a Scorpio/Pluto emphasis and possibly have his natal Pluto in the first house of his natal chart. When getting into a marriage partnership with such an individual, the native’s life transforms drastically, for better or for worse. Of course, the type of transformation is strongly connected to natal aspects of other planets to Pluto, and is heavily influenced by transits that occur.
Generally, keep in mind that people with such a placement treat all other individuals as a potential enemy and threat; they are highly suspicious themselves and will often attack for preventive reasons- this is their way of self defense. Their constant fear and insecurity in front of the others make them have an urge to establish themselves as an authority figure in their eyes; nevertheless the types of people they attract are of the same nature and will not just bow in front of them. So, they usually become the ones who are dominated, especially in their close relationships.
The usual pattern is that the spouse will have power over the native. Pluto in the 7th house gives a strong need of getting into deep relationships and the native is not satisfied with vanilla affairs. Often, the native will engage in theatrical or even dramatic situations and the marriage will be very demanding. Of course, this is a two-sided interaction and the one person mirrors the other. Natal Pluto in the 7th house implies that both sides try to exercise power on each other, and there can be a lot of actions containing feelings of revenge. Even small issues between the partners can generate retaliation, leading to a ping-pong of destructive actions.
With Pluto well-aspected, the marriage will permanently change both parts but in a good way. Such a placement, even if intense, will help them function well and dive deep into unification, helping them discovering relinquishment of their own personality and blending in a new whole, a couple that acts as one person. They will simply not be able to live without each other, and separating them will be harder than trying to break an atom to his compounds. This aspect might give a rather long relationship, which will only get challenged if some slow moving malefic planet forms a difficult transit aspect. Even then, the most likely thing is that the couple will overcome the difficulties and transcend to a new rebirth.
On the contrary, when Pluto has adverse aspects from malefics there can be extreme obsession from the partner’s side, which can even lead to verbal or physical abuse. Natives with Pluto forming conjunctions, squares or oppositions with Mars or Saturn should be very careful as their marriage can be destructive. Eventually, even this will transform them radically, but through very difficult experiences. Such type of difficult aspects will frequently bring divorces, nevertheless they are followed by lawsuits and the marriage partner will continue creating all types of problems even when the couple breaks up. He will definitely not be willing to give up and lose the native, as he may even consider him an object that he owns.
The 7th house is ruling one’s open enemies, and Pluto placed here indicates the presence of vicious ones. Be really careful if your Pluto is adversely aspected, as they can be of a very obscure nature and having really cruel traits. Of course, a native with such a placement is also pouring fuel in the fire of possible disputes, and the best remedy is to just keep away from people that have a very intense personality. The biggest problem is actually that the native enjoys such types of people and is drawn towards them. In any case, try to not create enemies as they might cause real problems in your life.
The same can apply for business partnerships. As the possible marriage partner, they are usually very domineering; choose wise before establishing a company with someone. This might be actually good to avoid, because if the business turns a bad decision then what follows will be catastrophic. Such a business partner will drag you to the court and will definitely become an enemy, trying to gain a victory against you and whatever he can financially. Of course, even such an experience will be permanently transformative, but why to indulge in it if you are beforehand conscious of such a possibility?
If you have such a natal aspect, you should understand that cooperation with the other person is the only way to reach a harmony. In such a situation, you can both reach new levels of consciousness and transform yourselves in the best way. Nevertheless, keep in mind that if you are the only one who struggles to find common ground for cooperation, your tries are rather doomed. If the partner is driven by unconscious Plutonian powers there is nothing you can do to convince him to act consciously. An ill-functioning Pluto in a natal chart of another means strong traumas, especially in the childhood years, that might even be impossible to heal unless working on them. Thus, if you have a hard 7th house Pluto, always check the Pluto condition of the other person. If it is adversely aspected, keep away. Do not worry, there are a lot of Plutonic people, you will find the right one to indulge in your power games; yet, in a safer type of relationship.
