What exactly is Orcus? Is it a minor planet? Is it indeed as important as Pluto? Thanks.

Here some bits and pieces of Orcus:

What one does at the core with Orcus would have to be different, and here is where the mystery of the underworld presents itself, at least to me. I’ve been following Orcus in the charts of my clients for over a year now, and it’s not altogether obvious what’s going on either by natal position or by transit. Orcus is holding tight onto his secret.

So far, the most significant observation I have is that there is no dramatic observation to be made as yet. This is particularly true with transits involving Orcus. They’re pretty quiet, at least amongst the people I’m seeing.

Orcus may be helping us to uncover secret paths obscured by the sands of time, perhaps even oaths we made long ago to enter into the depths of unexplored territory, into new realms of consciousness, that lead us to a new law of life—eventually to a law that is in integrity to Heart—when Orcus conjoins Regulus, heart of the Lion, in early 2009. By 2014, Orcus conjoins the stars of the sextant, where we can plot a new course, take a new tack based on the new vertical alignment established within self.

Broken promises and revenge or punishment: that is what Orcus, the latest discovered Plutonian object, is all about. This symbol must be important for astrology and love…

Lothar Matthaeus, the German football player, was confronted with pictures of his fourth wife, obviously enjoying the company of another man. This was a perfect example of the effect of a transit of Orcus. Inconjunctions are reflecting lost balance or losts…Transit Orcus is exactly inconjunct his natal Sun right now. And there is more…

Transit Saturn is opposition natal Sun (end of a period, caused by others) and transit Uranus is conjunct natal Sun (upheaval, you are in the news…).

So we can’t just blame Orcus for this, but the symbol was there as obvious as the secret lover was. But it could just be coincidence, of course…

Jupiter and Venus for instance are similar energies, but have important differences, and the same can be said for the Sun and Mars in terms of astrological meanings.

Applying this same principle to Pluto and Orcus, the similarities are easy to spot, but the differences are not yet jumping out of the shadows of the underworld, as befits an underworld god.

The similarities are straightforward. Pluto represents the journey deep inside to our core, our depth, and at the most profound level to our soul. (Talk you your friendly local Scorpio about that — hm-m-m, a friendly Scorpio? They do exist.) That is our personal underworld. Both Pluto and Orcus would have that in common, the journey to our core.

Where they would differ would be what one does at the core once one gets there. After several decades of observing Pluto, we now know that the Pluto experience at the core is one of death, rebirth, transformation, and regeneration.

What one does at the core with Orcus would have to be different, and here is where the mystery of the underworld presents itself, at least to me. I’ve been following Orcus in the charts of my clients for over a year now, and it’s not altogether obvious what’s going on either by natal position or by transit. Orcus is holding tight onto his secret.

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.
