What exactly is Orcus? Is it a minor planet? Is it indeed as important as Pluto? Thanks.
Orcus rules Scorpio alongside Pluto and Mars. Yet Orcus' energy is quite different than Pluto. Whereas Pluto is willful like Mars, Orcus is more feminine like Venus. Orcus emphasizes the quality and depth of our 8th house connections with others (or lack thereof), whereas Pluto emphasizes the strength and quantity of those connections.
