Welcome to the biggest paradigm shift of 2023! When Pluto changes signs (on average once every 20 years), our lives and society shift significantly. Pluto is about power, transformation, regeneration, and eliminating anything that prevents growth. Aquarius is a sign of change and innovation, aligning well with Pluto’s intentions. When Pluto is in Aquarius, we can expect a redistribution of power — from a top-down to a bottom-up approach. We also look forward to new ideas and developments in science and technology.
Pluto has been in Capricorn since 2008. It enters Aquarius on March 23, 2023. During its retrograde, Pluto will dip back into Capricorn on June 11, 2023, then return to Aquarius on January 20, 2024, where it will stay for 20 years.
Let’s break it down
Pluto is the planet of transformation and global change.
- Encourages the elimination of anything preventing growth, whether it be toxins in your body or the environment or corruption on a societal level.
- Brings evolution and the realignment of power and collective will.
- Represents the power of nature, including death, rebirth, and regeneration.
Aquarius is the sign of liberation, innovation, and change.
- Brings progress and innovation in the community, new technology, and individualism.
- Inspires us to be original, unconventional, and future-thinking humanitarians.
- In the body, Aquarius rules the circulatory system — sharing and distributing energy and information.
Together, Pluto and Aquarius encourage us to:
- Share the Power
- Transform the Community
- Empower the People
What It All Means
The last time Pluto was in Aquarius was 1778-1798. The Industrial and French Revolutions occurred during that time, and the American Constitution (“We the people”) was written. Some people are calling this transit “power to the people,” but that doesn’t mean everyone gets what they want. It means that majority decisions and community needs rise above individual concerns and desires. And any corruption or toxicity impacting the greater good will be exposed, so we can remove it and redirect our collective energy.
The current Pluto in Capricorn years have confronted us with the rising influence of corporate monopolies, dictatorial leaders, economic crises, and the regression of human rights. They have unearthed issues around authority, government, business, laws and regulations, leadership integrity, and the ‘establishment.’ We can’t continue managing people and resources the way we have been. With Pluto reaching the last degrees of Capricorn, we’ve hit the ceiling. The top can’t go on, and the bottom starts to rise up.
When Pluto moves into Aquarius, there’s a shift to empower the people as a whole — not a top-down approach. There will be less tolerance for abusing power or wielding power over others. Pluto in Aquarius wants freedom from the ‘old ways’ that keep us down. More rebellion and revolution are likely. Pluto entering Aquarius is the doorway to a collective new generation with new rules, voices, and opportunities.
Questions to Consider
- How can we transform as communities and as humanity as a whole to align more with the majority’s wants and needs?
- How can we advance technology, science, astrology (Aquarius rules astrology), and astronomy to improve society?
- How will WE birth the next generation?
- What can you do to prepare and move through this time?
- Consider how the ‘we’ is more important than any ‘me.’
- Be strong and confront things when needed, but also be willing to let go and evolve.
- Learn to live and work smarter, more efficiently, and in sync with universal energy.
