Those with a Dominant Pluto tend to be profound, intense and transformative. They have a strong desire for power and control, and are often characterized by their resilience and focus.

Pluto Dominant individuals often have an uncanny ability to see through superficiality and get to the heart of any matter. They may have a knack for understanding complex systems and structures, and are often able to perceive the deeper motivations and hidden agendas of others.
