Pluto’s move into Aquarius portends some very dark, and very revealing, years ahead, particularly as science and technology integrate more deeply with every aspect of our lives. The dwarf planet’s strange elliptical orbit lasts 248 years and causes it to spend different amounts of time in each sign. It’s been in Capricorn since the 2008 financial crisis and is moving out now during another financial crisis (among other things) and into Aquarius.
Capricorn is an earth sign and signifies physical, material things, structure, order, and so on, and Aquarius is an air sign, which signifies cerebral things, ideas, plans, science, technology, and perhaps most importantly, the digital world.
Pluto, on the other hand, is the name of the Roman god of the Underworld -whom the Greeks call Hades- and he rules the land of the dead obviously, but also that other meaning of the word “underworld” -crime; especially the organized kind. As Hades / Pluto moves into Aquarius, the dark, corrupt, and hidden parts of our science and technology will come to light and their rotten cores revealed.
This is a necessary process the universe has to go through, occasionally digging up and revealing the dirty secrets which allow the powerful of the present day to subjugate the future of the world. Still, from our perspective, it’s going to be a bit scary and unpleasant; particularly if you enjoy liberty and speaking your truth.
But it’s important to keep in mind that Pluto’s always lurking somewhere in the sky -and can only be in one area of the chart a time. In this transit, Pluto occupies Aquarius for over 20 years, so there’s no getting around it and no point in living in fear. You just need to understand what to expect from Pluto in Aquarius and how to navigate your way through the worst of it.
In this first of a series of three episodes titled,“Hades In Aquarius,” I’m going to introduce the idea and importance of Pluto’s ingress in Aquarius in late March, 2023, and explain the bad -and the good- of what’s to come, so that you can plan accordingly, make informed choices, and protect your family in the storms to come.
