This aspect can be very intense and is different depending on a gender. In woman, it’s characterized by emotional intensity, compulsiveness, sensuality, and sometimes entanglement with control issues. An unresolved and almost obsessive-compulsive connection with your mother is possible. Man with this aspect attract woman who want to explore the psychological depths and exhibit their power issues in a dynamic and open way. Some Famous People with Moon conjunct Pluto are Catherine Deneuve, Leonardo DiCaprio, Amelia Earhart, Jodie Foster, k.d. Lang, Barbra Streisand.
This is how Karen Hamaker-Zondag in her Aspects and Personality describes this aspect:
“The conjunction of these two factors has a very intense effect. At the same time as we are looking for security and adopting an attitude in which we hope to feel safe (Moon), we are confronted by the very thing from which we are trying to escape or by some other bugbear from the unconscious. Since Pluto represents endeavors to hold our own by gaining control of situations, a sense of safety will be ours only when we know that we are in command. Whenever we feel we are not, we can lash out fiercely or wait for a chance to seize the helm again.
Because the confrontation with repressed and unconscious factors makes us inwardly insecure and compels us to do something, we can expect to be involved in some pretty vigorous action sooner or later. The confrontation this conjunction brings about between the natives and their hidden insecurity is likely to make them bottle up feelings in public. But they have an intense need for emotional contact; and this, combined with a power urge, can cause them to be motherly and protective, the danger being that they may turn tyrant and force the loved ones to obey.
Intensity is the keyword of Moon / Pluto aspects. The Moon is highly charged by Pluto, which enhances its influence. This is why these natives can be so emotionally fierce and demanding. An ordinary relationship does not satisfy: they insist on much more than that. They want depth and intrigue. With the Moon / Pluto conjunction, the grip will tighten on partners until they have wrung the secrets out. By the same token, this is a good aspect for researchers, (para)psychologists and the like. But the natives must take care not to be misled by feelings – an ever-present danger."
