1930 by Clyde W. Tombaugh at the Lowell Observatory and is the ninth planet of our solar system. There is actually some debate as to whether Pluto should really be labeled a planet, as it is extremely small (about 2,360 km or 1,475 mi in diameter) and similar to many other small trans-Neptunian bodies recently discovered. However, Pluto retains its designation as planet, and there are no current plans to change that. Pluto's surface is icy and its composition is unknown. Its density indicates that it is probably a mixture of 70% rock and 30% ice much like Triton. The atmosphere probably consists primarily of nitrogen with some carbon monoxide and methane. Pluto revolves around the Sun once in 247.7 Earth years at an average distance of 5.91 billion km (3.67 billion mi). Its orbit is very eccentric and occassionaly moves inside the orbital path of the planet Neptune. It also rotates in the opposite direction from other planets. Pluto has at least one satellite, Charon, which is about 1200km in diameter, about half the size of the planet it orbits. In May of 2005, two more satellites were discovered, which had been given the temporary designations S/2005 P 1 and S/2005 P 2 but are now named Nix and Hydra.
Pluto was the Roman god of the underworld (his Greek name was Hades). Though he kidnapped Proserpina (Persephone in Greek), he was not perceived in Roman times as evil. In fact, he was initially more closely associated with wealth, which was mined from the earth; this connection to the physical 'underworld' soon grew into a connection with the spiritual underworld.

If debilitated, Pluto will normally manifest the following qualitites: manipulation, cruelty, coercition, violence, mercilessness, deceit. The native may be fond of power plays, or be attracted by intrigues and plots. As Pluto's action is one of hiding and concealment, its worst attributes wil not be immediately apparent in the native's behavior. The same holds also for the cases in which Pluto is dignified and well aspected.
The native will be exceptionally strong and/or energetic, creative and endowed with acute discernment. These qualitites will either be carefully dissimulated by the native, or literally buried underneath his dull, uncouth appearance.
Physical appearance, organs and parts of the body
- Gonads (testes in the male and ovaries in the female)

There does not seem to be a consensus on how Pluto may relate to the native's physical apperance. Generally speaking if Pluto is rising, culminating or strongly placed (for instance, conjunct a personal planet or placed in the fourth and "mirroring" its influence on the Midheaven) the native may be surrounded by an aura of magnetism. His looks may be very intense and he may gave the idea of being very strong. Normally Plutonians are very personable, soft-spoken and kind.

Pluto transits tranform things, brings them to the surface in sudden and shocking ways, that revolutionize the native's life. This planet can have a destructive influence, and result in the need to reconstruct, to start things anew.
During a Pluto transit, the native may experience one or more of the following effects:
- sudden, radical and traumatic change. The sector where this will occur is normally indicated by the house where the transit takes place and by the cusps that receive an aspect from transiting Pluto. The event that will concretely be involved in these changes - either as their cause or as their object - can be indicated by the planet in aspect to Pluto.
- Sudden awareness of all that was being hidden from the native, as machinations, intrigues, power plays and so on.
- Consciousness of situations that are old and stagnant, and need to undergo a radical transformation.
