- Sun in Leo inconjunct Pluto Rx in Capricorn: 17 degrees
The ambition for recognition is strong, but insecurity is the motivator. What's expressed comes with a side of manipulation - Pluto manifests as a dark slice, rather than full shadow, but it's still potent. Perhaps even more potent because it can slide by, undetected.
Behind the exaggerated display, big creation or generosity there will be a covert agenda. Look beyond the shine. Challenges to dominance (that come out of nowhere) are a sign that Pluto is acting up.
Used wisely, there is tremendous leadership potential here. Creations can have a far-reaching, transformative effect. But there must be full awareness of how power is being expressed, and why. Insecurities cannot be allowed to run the show. The best approach is complete honesty about the real goal.
