Pluto In Aquarius

There are a lot of amazing and exciting planetary changes happening this year. Arguably, one of the biggest, most significant changes is with planet Pluto moving into Aquarius. The change started back on 20th January, when Pluto moved into the sign Aquarius. It’ll stay here until 1st September, when it will retrograde back into Capricorn till November 19th. Once it’s back in Aquarius, it’ll be there until 8th March 2043! So what does this all mean? Let’s find out…

The Planet of Transformation

Let’s begin by finding out a little more about Pluto. In astrology, Pluto is known as the planet of transformation, power, and regeneration. It represents the subconscious, deep-seated desires, and the process of death and rebirth. Pluto controls the power of transformation on both a collective and personal level. It rules over major life changes and is often associated with intense experiences that lead to profound personal growth. Pluto’s influence can feel very intense, especially in areas of change, or where power struggles and pyschological depth are at play. Due to its slow orbit, Pluto’s influence is generational rather than personal. Its placement in your birth chart can indicate shared experiences and themes with other individuals born during the same period.

All About Aquarius

The sign Aquarius is ruled by Uranus, it symbolises innovation, intellect, and independence. This air sign (January 20th – February 18th) thrives on progressive ideas, humanitarianism, and social change. This energy fosters unconventional thinking and a commitment to breaking norms. Aquarius represents the collective, pushing for equality and freedom for all.

What Can We Expect?

When Pluto moves through Aquarius it intensifies the desire for change and reform in social, political, and technological areas. So what can we expect? Well, during this time we can expect a shift in how we as a society perceive technology, specifically with advances in AI, robotics, and virtual reality. These all have the potential to significantly transform various industries. We might also see issues related to privacy, surveillance, as well as the ethical implications of technological advancements.

Pluto in Aquarius will also highlight the importance of collective action and commiunity initiatives. Social activism, grassroots movements, and efforts to address systemic issues around things like inequality and injustice might also gain momentum during this time.

On a personal level, what does this mean for us all? Well, Pluto’s transit through Aquarius can bring about deep introspection, and a desire for personal empowerment. We might feel compelled to break away free from the societal norms, and embrace our uniqueness. This could be the perfect opportunity for a period of self-discovery, and authenticity. However, it’s also worth noting that Pluto’s influence in Aquarius can also be disruptive, as we remove the old and outdated, to make way for the new. This could relate to work, views and perceptions, as well as relationships. It is essential to navigate this time with awareness and resilience; understanding that change is an essential part of growth.

So if you are feeling the need for change you’ll now know why. Interesting too that there are changes afoot with politics here in the UK too. A mayoral election coming up in May, and potentially a general election at some point this year, or early next year. Overall, Pluto in Aquarius in 2024 will offer us all the opportunity for personal and societal change and growth. It’s the time to embrace innovation, change and work towards an equal and more sustainable future.
