Neptune Sextile Pluto

Neptune Sextile Pluto Natal

The Neptune sextile Pluto configuration has been in play, off and on, since near the end of World War II. Many people, across multiple generations, have this configuration (though in different signs) in their charts. Although there have been intermittently serious conflicts around the world since 1944, none has been as widely catastrophic as WWII. Perhaps this signals that we collectively strive to balance the passions of war with the compassion of peacekeeping. On a more personal level, you also strive to moderate your passions and fears—especially surrounding loss and catastrophe—with high-mindedness, inspiration, hope, and empathy. Of course, it's also easy to get into the blame game and step into strongly framed divisions. But if there's a commitment to angle toward a peaceful resolution and robust discussion, then the power of this aspect can be felt at global, societal, and personal levels.

Neptune Sextile Pluto Transit

When Neptune is sextile Pluto, you're experiencing a powerful reminder to keep a sacred promise that human beings should be a bridge to each other, rather than a burden. As a species, we haven't always been good about keeping that promise. In fact, it's only in the last century or so that we even came to greet all men and women as human beings. Yet, since these two planets have been in this similar configuration for close to 75 years, it's likely that you were born with this lineup in your own birth chart. Perhaps you're dealing with an ongoing situation that makes your blood boil. Perhaps nothing would give you greater pleasure than annihilating the people involved—or when calmer, sparing the people but eradicating the situation. But you can bridge the gap between wasteful wishing and apocalyptic thinking through a persistent faith that things can—and, with no alternative, must—work out. Balance your passion with compassion, and you'll be off to a good start.
