Pluto - "God of the underworld"
Astrology: Pluto's theme is transformation and power. Destructing old patterns and transform with self-empowerment. He's intense, powerful and represents everything "deep" - also death but in the meaning of rebirth (The Phoenix rising from the ashes).
As Pluto is of the deep, it's about the inner self - the inner power - the more aware and conscious we become about our own abilities (power) the more we transform and become that Phoenix. I persieve him as the "gate" to the universal outer worlds, which is reached through the path through his realm - the inner world - to find all the wonderous, the fantastic and with it ourselves!! Once we discover our own beauty and treasure we walk freely.
Greek Mythology: Pluto (Roman) - Hades in Greek - Both the ruler of the "underworld". He's the eldest of Cronus and Rhea's sons - the elder Brother of Zeus and Poseidon. He abducted Persephone (Demeter/Ceres daughter) as he wanted and did marry her. She stayed with him for a third or half of the year. As the ruler of the underworld he wasn't liked to be seen - neither the Humans nor the Gods, so he mostly stayed in his "kingdom". He was thought to be very rich as he ruled over all the hidden metals of the Earth.
Some Astronomy: Pluto was the first and the largest Kuiper belt object to be discovered (in 1930) and was declared to be the ninth planet from the Sun. Since in the 1990s and early 2000s, several objects of similar size in the Kuiper belt, including the dwarf planet Eris, were discovered, the International Astronomical Union (IAU) in 2006 reclassified Pluto as a dwarf planet. Pluto is the ninth-largest and tenth-most-massive known object directly orbiting the Sun. It is the largest known trans-Neptunian object by volume but is less massive than Eris. Like other Kuiper belt objects, Pluto is primarily made of ice and rock and is relatively small.
Pluto periodically comes closer to the Sun than Neptune, but a stable orbital resonance with Neptune prevents them from colliding.
Pluto has five known moons: Charon (the largest, with a diameter just over half that of Pluto), Styx, Nix, Kerberos, and Hydra. Pluto's orbital period is currently about 248 years. Pluto's orbit is moderately inclined relative to the ecliptic (over 17°) and moderately eccentric (elliptical). This eccentricity means a small region of Pluto's orbit lies closer to the Sun than Neptune's. (Ref. Wikipedia)
This animation combines various observations of Pluto over the course of several decades. The first frame is a digital zoom-in on Pluto as it appeared upon its discovery.

The Uranus-Pluto last conjunction or current cycle started in January 1966 in sid. Leo near Uranus Aphelion. It's an important relationship the Two have as it was this relationship leading to the search of Pluto (as Planet X) because Pluto's orbit does "influence" Uranus' orbit beside most likely some "Trans Neptunian bodies"....
Also the relationship between Neptune and Pluto is very interesting - they're in a harmonious 3 to 2 cycle....

Pluto was discovered on 18th of February 1930 by ClydyeTombaugh at the Lowell Observatory (Percival Lawell and after his death also his wife were "certain" about "Planet X" existence and never gave up the search.) Several photos taken from January 21st to 29th 1930 were the basis used for this discovery....
Pluto was discovered while transiting through Gemini - more precise the star Wasat which means "the middle". Interestingly he was discovered less than a degree away from his own Northnode. In the heliocentric chart he was squared by Uranus (last square) in Pisces near the star Linteum and a nice GT and almost Kite-Pyramid in the fire-signs was active - it included Neptune with Earth in Leo near Regulus, Saturn, Pholus, Juno in Sagittarius, Venus at solar conjunction in Aquarius and Pallas in Aries.... In geocentric view Pluto was squared by Pallas and Nessus and himself in a first square from Sedna and in a first trine by Mercury in Libra...
