Pluto in Capricorn Personality

The Pluto in Capricorn generation is meant to smash through existing systems and structures. Accepted concepts of work/life balance and office politics do not appeal to the children of this astrological era. This is the generation that asks, "Why should we spend 40 hours or more each week in the service of a company?" As a result, those with this placement are more independent where working is concerned. However, Capricorn Pluto is far from lazy; they simply abide by a set of laws that may or may not fall in line with society.

Naturally, these individuals don't exactly mesh well with authority figures. Ironically, Pluto's passion and Capricorn's enterprising energy will likely push them to become the very authority they've struggled against. Drive is a key characteristic for this placement, so they're sure to take the world by storm.

Positive Traits

Pluto adds jet fuel to Capricorn's already massive ambition, so move out the way! Similar to their fiery predecessor, Sagittarius, Pluto in Capricorn needs to feel free. Instead of freedom of thought or philosophy as was the Sagittarius way, Capricorn Pluto seeks freedom from the traditions that constrain them—ideas of success and work, especially.

From the ashes of the status quo, Capricorn Pluto will be tasked with rebuilding the world bigger and better than it was before. With their strategic minds and tireless spirits, there's no doubt that they'll lead the collective out of the woods.

Negative Traits

Pluto in Capricorn should try not to dig their heels—or hooves—into a plan or idea. Sometimes what we perceive as obstacles are real indications that the path we're on isn't the right one. In the same vein, though they may feel that their authority is most effective, Capricorn Pluto must take care not to repeat the oppressive mistakes of their precursors. In their mission to escape controlling influences, they finish by controlling others.

Furthermore, due to the severe tones of Saturn, these individuals tend to have a more pessimistic outlook than the average person. In the world in which we live, hope is crucial.


The planet is in need of an overhaul, and the Pluto in Capricorn generation is here to clean up the collective's mess. From birth, the individuals born during this astrological period possess a certain get-up-and-go mentality. With Capricorn Pluto, there is an inherent understanding of the more sobering aspects of existence. Therefore, a certain practicality characterizes their approach to life, even to their detriment.
While this grittiness helps them weather any storm, they tend toward gloominess, and given the stormy geopolitical climate in which they entered the world, who can blame them? Still, aside from these issues, this generation's greatest challenge may be daring to dream of a better world. Pluto in Capricorn must maintain hope even in the midst of darkness.
