Pluto in Aquarius

Pluto will transit into Aquarius for the first time since the end of the 18th century and remain here for two decades. Pluto will take some time to get used to the style of the air sign, and will switch from Aquarius back to Capricorn several times. He has spent some time in Aquarius already in 2023, and will again on January 20th in 2024 - where it will remain until September 1st. From November 19th, Pluto will remain in Aquarius until 2043, returning in 2044 before moving to Pisces.

Pluto in Aquarius

Named after the Greek god of the underworld, Pluto symbolizes depth, mystery, cycles of death and rebirth, as well as destruction and creation in astrology. Its distant position from the Sun has a significant and long-lasting effect on wider society, rather than individuals. It gives us chances in all areas of life, but conversely can lead us to obsession, contradictions and a lust for power, since Pluto attracts dramatic events towards us.

Progressive and unconventional Aquarius rules social interactions, technology, equality, science, and humanitarian activities. Therefore, the transformative power of Pluto will manifest itself in these areas and will cause changes in society, mainly through technology and science. This strong connection will affect the way we work, communicate, receive information, and understand the world. It will bring an emphasis on social justice and we will seek the path to greater freedom.

This connection will increase intuition and aid in spiritual growth. Aquarius is associated with higher consciousness, and Pluto’s energy will provide time for deep self-discovery. However, this energy can also cause conflicts. Aquarius values freedom and individuality, but the shadow side of these positives can grow into feelings of separation and misunderstanding. Therefore we can also expect changes in our relationships as well.

People born under the sign of Aquarius or with its placement in the horoscope will feel the impact of the transit of Pluto more tangibly. They will repeatedly break free from old patterns in order to find their own way.

The age of the Aquarius-Pluto conjunction will have a significant impact on society and individuals, which may be both positive and negative. Consequently, it is important to accept the energy of Pluto and work with its placement in Aquarius, so that we may succeed in our personal life but also in society as a whole.
