Hippocrates said a health practitioner who does not use astrology has a fool for a doctor. Medical astrology dates back to 400BC and the time of Hippocrates, who said, “He who does not understand astrology is not a doctor but a fool.” In fact, most people do not realize that astrology was the way medicine was practiced into the 17th century and was much like eastern medicine such as Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda, which is more widely accepted today.

Moon trine Pluto
Seemingly afraid of nothing, you tackle problems with confidence, and intuitively accept that life is demanding. In fact, you prefer life to be at least gently challenging, as you feel alive and vital when you are experiencing deep emotions, sharing intimacy, and digging deep for answers. You come across as powerful and intense, and usually this earns you respect from others, although some might feel vaguely intimidated by you. You can be quite matter of fact and you expect the same kind of honesty, respect, and candor from others that you express. In fact, you can be quite baffled by, and impatient with, others who are not forthright. You are a sensual and emotional lover, as well as a deep, perceptive, and insightful friend.
The trine aspect is the more dynamic of the two harmonious aspects. Those with the sextile can call upon these traits when needed, and those with the trine between the Moon and Pluto have incorporated the traits of the aspect into their personalities, expressing them naturally and consistently.
Your daily habits get restructured periodically. This happens because you feel the need for change and respond to this feeling enthusiastically. You are deeply driven and have a powerful need for a wide variety of life experiences within a chosen area or field.
Moon trine Pluto: Compulsive and driven, you accomplish much through your ability to keep trying different approaches to a problem until it is solved.

Moon Trine Pluto has the same awesome charm of the Sun trine Pluto but with a more obsessive edge, since the Moon rules habits and compulsions. It also carries the devouring mother archetype, and the trine makes it rather insatiable. Hugh Hefner is a good example of this type. The creator of Playboy claimed to have slept with most of his “Playmates”, despite being married. Without doubt this is an incredibly sexy aspect and it’s charisma is apparent in Jerry Hall and “Dr Who” David Tennant who aptly played Casanova, also has the distinctive, penetrating Plutonic eyes. Generally the Moon trine Pluto’s power comes from it’s brooding, seething sex appeal and it’s cunning. The optimistic trine can be put to great use in the field of human rights empowering others, for example Jimmy Carter was generally regarded as a better man than a president and Harvey Milk was a gay activist. Milk in true secretive Pluto fashion must’ve covered his sexuality fairly well. As a youth he was never suspected gay. He was generally regarded as a “man’s man”. Which in fact he was!
As we can see Moon trine Pluto plays their cards very close to their chest. They are survivors. Of course there is the dark side of Pluto, even with the trine, or probably because of the trine. Pluto trines can inflate the subject’s sense of power and here we can get the tyrant. Dictator Gadaffi has this and also Lyle Menendez who along with his brother murdered his Beverly Hills parents then went on a million dollar spending spree. The best example of this aspect is that of Violette Szabo, the British wartime spy who’s bravery won her the George Cross. In true Pluto spirit Szabo kept her mouth shut, despite being brutally tortured by the Gestapo. She was executed aged just 23.
