Sun Sextile Pluto Transit

Sun sextile Pluto transits can be good for making necessary changes.  There is often a feeling of being more in control and being able to tackle matters that have been bothering you for some time.

The Sun is related to ourselves, our hero’s journey, ourselves at our essential best. The Sun is the source of light for us, and just as it shines down on earth, it shines a light wherever it falls.

Pluto is associated with power plays, unearthing the hidden, sexuality, intensity, and crisis. Pluto can tear things down so that they can be rebuilt better. There is often a phoenix rising from the flames vibe with Pluto.

Planets are sextile when they are 60° apart (usually 2 signs away from each other). When looking at transits (as opposed to natal astrology) we usually allow an orb (allowance) of 1° so planets that are 59° to 61° degrees apart are considered sextile.

A sextile is a harmonious or easy aspect that has a helpful quality to it.  Sextiles can be useful when it comes to making changes that are necessary as things tend to work smoother with textiles.
