To some modern Western astrologers, Pluto is the ruling planet of Scorpio Scorpio. Called "the great renewer", Pluto is considered to represent the part of a person that destroys in order to renew. A commonly used keyword for Pluto is "transformation." Many (traditional and modern) astrologers do not use Pluto as a ruling planet but do use the planet for chart interpretation and predictive work. Pluto was the Roman god of the underworld (Greek Hades), with the most power over humans over the course of time, as they dwelt there in his underworld for all eternity after death.
Pluto is also associated with extreme power and corruption and the discovery of Pluto in 1930 coincided with the rise of Fascism (WP) in Europe and the major proliferation of organized crime in the USA. It is also associated with nuclear armament which had its genesis in the research of that decade.
Since its discovery, pluto has always been regarded as a planet. However, recent observations have led some astronomers to classify it as a dwarf planet, the biggest member of a group of icy objects that lie beyond the orbit of neptune.
