1st house upheaval: personal update

Pluto has been in my first house for years and will continue to be there for a few more.

Pluto Crosses the Ascendant

There will be major changes. A long distance move, changes in relationships, a career break, attainment of power/position. One's life will never be the same again.

Pluto through the first house

Pluto remains in this house anywhere from 12- 31 years. During this time, drastic changes in self can occur. Physical changes such as weight loss, self-improvement, obsession with one's self and goals, personal accomplishments. This transit is usually positive, but in rare cases, the life altering changes can be for the worst.

Pluto Capricorn in the First House: (House of Aries and Mars) Affectations picked up out of habit, are exposed as toxic behavior, and it's time to strip away these phony layers. Radical changes in style and body are possible, as overlays (superficial traits, body armor (fat) are eliminated. A visible transformation that others see, and which alters how they engage with you. Overhaul to self-image - character and confidence on the other side. Unlocking and expressing the power of what's unique about you.

Note: Pluto has been in Capricorn for years and will continue to be for several more due to many retrogrades.

obtaining money and material possessions can become an all out obsession, there can be drastic changes in these areas. Winning large amounts of money, or major losses can occur. An overwhelming need for security, usually financial.

 Pluto Capricorn in the Second House: (House of Taurus and Venus) A test of your values and how much you invest in your own natural talents, possessions and sense of place. Getting to the heart of money beliefs -- where is flow and where is the energy backed up? Events possible that intensify fears about being able to provide for yourself and others. Big transformations to do with earning power. A revamping of what 'security' means, and trust in your own resilience, self-sufficiency.

The Sun has been in my first house for about a month.

Sun Transits the First House  

Rebirth of the self
The Sun illuminates your first house for the next few weeks, bringing issues surrounding your personal identity, appearance, outward behavior, and self-expression to the forefront. This marks the height of your physical solar cycle, and you are in the position to make an impression on others, and to assert your personal influence beyond its normal boundaries. Spontaneity of expression is what this transit is about. You are ready to put your past behind you and to start a new personal cycle. You have presence and you project confidence. Increased energy and a renewed feeling of confidence is with you now, so take advantage. It's a great month to do something entirely new and pioneering—to go solo in some area of your life. This particular season of the year smiles on your personal endeavors. This is a time when you more easily get in touch with a true sense of your identity and purpose. The most enterprising side of your nature pushes up and out, and it's time to seize opportunities. Problems in your life may be overcome by bravery, self-assertion, and directness. There's nothing wrong with a bit of self-centeredness during this cycle, but avoid taking it too far. It's not the best time for team work and other cooperative endeavors. The spotlight is on you and your ability to lead, so make it a good one! Take steps to improve how you come across to others. It's time to carve your own path in life.

Sun Transits the Second House

The Sun highlights your second house for the next few weeks, and your focus is on material affairs and comfort issues. Security is a driving force for you right now, and you might find that you are especially interested in accumulating possessions. What you have and what you don't have come into focus--what makes you feel comfortable, your sense of security, and what you value. This is the time of year when personal finances and possessions receive maximum attention. Pour your energy into your work and your finances, and you might just be able to take your ideas to the bank. Extravagance with your pocketbook is something you may want to look out for, however. If you find yourself itching to make unnecessary purchases, know that at the root of this urge is the desire to pamper and comfort yourself. Nothing wrong with it, but there are inexpensive (and even free) ways to make yourself feel good. This is not the most eventful time of year for you. You are more inclined to dig your heels in and hang on to what makes you feel most secure than to take big risks.

Looks like Mercury is exiting my first house.

Mercury Transits the First House  

This is a period in which you are most inclined to speak up about matters that you previously were only mulling over. Your disposition is more intellectual than usual now, and self-expression comes easy. You are sharper than usual--more observant, and more inclined to "live in the head". Relationships with siblings, neighbors, classmates, and casual friends may become more prominent in your life now. It is likely that you will initiate discussions during this period, evaluate your appearance and the impact you have on those around you, and make contact with others rather than stay chained to any one place or activity. This is the time to be direct and to communicate your needs and interests. You are more inclined to talk about yourself and your personal past now. This may also be a restless time when it is difficult to turn the thinking process off when it would be better to relax! It is an especially fruitful time for any endeavor that requires dealing with words, ideas, and facts and figures. Your demeanor is more youthful, perhaps mischievous, lighthearted, and non-threatening so that others may be more inclined to turn to you for advice or pleasant conversation. Using the power of words to attract what you want or to further your interests works best for you now.

Mercury Transits the Second House

This is a strong period for analyzing your cash flow, income, and earning power. You are more practical and rational in your approach to finances now. With your conscious mind focused on money and possessions, as well as personal values, this can be a strong period for gathering new money-making ideas. Alternatively, it could be a time when you tend to fret over your finances. Conversations tend to be practical rather than frivolous now. Financial gain may come through communications.

And Venus entered my second house recently.

Venus Transits the First House  

You could find it hard to deny yourself anything during this cycle! This is a time when you naturally let loose your softer, receptive side. Romantic matters, as well as pleasure-seeking activities, come to the fore now. You are more likely to pay closer attention to your physical appearance and mannerisms, aiming to improve and enhance your attractiveness. Others find you agreeable and cooperative.

Venus Transits the Second House

As the natural ruler of this sector of the chart, Venus feels right "at home" here. This is a rather content position for Venus, although there can be some restlessness when it comes to money and spending it--you are more inclined to want more things around you! Financial security and enjoyment of the good things in life are important to you, although you also value simple pleasures. The ability to relate well with others might enhance your own personal finances during this period. You may find yourself in a position in which there is a blending of financial matters with social or public affairs. This is a stable position for love matters and close relationships. You value those who make you feel comfortable, and familiarity is more important to you than someone new during this cycle.

You may rub others the wrong way now, as they sense your impatience or they feel that you're not considering their needs. You might fumble when you go after what you want, as your confidence seems forced. You might feel irritable and tense under this influence. Restlessness and impatience are likely now.

Uranus Transits Square Ascendant
*Unexpected changes in your relationships and life in general occur at this time. You are not easily satisfied with things now; even if everything seems to be going along fine, you feel the need to stir things up. You would almost rather have an upset or crisis just for the excitement!
+Sudden insight into your job, family, and sense of security. You could be asserting more independence, perhaps at the expense of your friends and relationships -- engrossed in your personal and domestic scene.
