Pluto in Scorpio Personality

Pluto in Scorpio ignites hell's fires in its natives. Few are more willing—no, consumed with—to get to the bottom of things, regardless of how rough the way down is. Unfortunately, their outlooks tend toward negativity. Given their familiarity with the darker side of life, this comes as no surprise.

There's a certain shrewdness to individuals that makes them particularly dangerous adversaries.

Furthermore, while humans definitely have the capacity for evil, wrongdoing isn't assured. Scorpio Pluto must keep this in mind as they cast judgment, lest they miss out on meaningful opportunities and relationships.


Pluto is at its most comfortable—if the planet of radical transformation can even feel comfort—in Scorpio. It makes for a generation that, due to the polarizing nature of the sign, we love to hate. The plight of the much-discussed Millennial—the cohort to which most with their Pluto in Scorpio belong—demonstrates this characterization. Of course, this reputation isn't entirely undeserved. Pluto in Scorpio makes for a consummate rule-breaker. They are the proverbial motorcycle-riding bad boy of the most recent generations, and on some level, they savor this label.

Like all Scorpio placements, those with this placement aren't pleased with the accepted response, so they're apt to scratch at the surface of an issue until they find (or force) a satisfactory explanation. Scorpio Pluto's passion for uncovering the hidden is unmatched.
