Pluto was named after the Roman god of the underworld. The judge of the dead, he ruled over the dark and shadowy realm that lies beneath the surface of the earth. Pluto ruled over seeds and corpses, but he also ruled over gold, silver and precious metals. This made him the god of wealth and riches. In Astrology, Pluto rules over our inner resources — things that lie hidden within us like buried treasure, and things we disregard or don't recognize like untapped potential or a latent talent. The Sun/Pluto sextile on March 3 will give you a unique opportunity to make use of something that you never thought of making use of before. And this will make all the difference.
LEO (July 22 - Aug. 21)
Did you take on more than you can handle? It may feel that way on March 3, when the Sun sextiles Pluto. Pluto is the planet of obsession, and its presence in that part of your solar horoscope that pertains to work and service can make you feel more like an indentured servant than like a valued employee. However, it looks like you're taking on additional work in order to learn the tricks of a new trade or update your skills. This will pay off one day in higher status and greater earning power.
