 When Moon is aspected by Pluto, emotions become the medium through which transformations can occur. So a person with this aspect can go through some dark and intense experience that could shake up her inner core of safety and security.

This often happens through an actual or perceived loss which instigates lifelong grief and a need to control the feeling of powerlessness. The Moon Pluto person does this by developing strong attachments that are too rigid or vowing never to get so close to anybody. Generally, this aspect plays out in the immediate family environment especially with the main caregiver. It could be someone who as a child observed the mother go through a life threatening illness and in the process developed a strong bond with her and vowed to be in her close proximity. Very often, the mother or grandmother or another caregiver is often the only source of nurture since the father has left through divorce or is not emotionally available. On the other hand it could be a situation where the mother can range from being protective or manipulative to being a total control freak, and yet the Moon Pluto person hesitates to break away due to the unsaid oath of loyalty and passion that binds them for life. In any case, the Moon Pluto person can grow up with an underlying anxiety which propels them to manage and control everything in their environment including their eating habits.
