Pluto arrives in Aquarius on March 23 2023 at 12.23 Universal Time – more fodder for numerologists! And apart from some retrograding back and forth in the end degrees of Capricorn, the Change God is in Aquarius until 2044.
Yes, it’s a uniquely lengthy stay – 21 years – compared to recent Pluto sign stints but FYI Pluto graced Taurus for 31 years.
Anyway, while of course we will have plenty of time to get acclimatized to this new Pluto vibe, here are some Pluto in Aquarius horoscopes to set the mood and provide some advance intel.
After thirteen years in Capricorn – aka non-stop striving, pivots, re-pivots, attitude adjustments and slog – you may be wondering what the fuq Pluto has done for you lately?
Nearly everyone feels like they’ve had to work more or keep pace with a more unforgiving tempo since Pluto entered Capricorn in January 2008 but the syndrome has been super-pronounced for Aries.
Will Pluto in Aquarius be a blur of clones, drones, cyber-heists and Chat GPT? Perhaps. However no Artificial Intelligence can emulate your unique ability to lead and embolden others. Whatever the trends, anticipate less pushback in career realms – more popularity, peer support, recognition and community clout.
This will not be a subtle segue. A few weeks after Pluto changes signs, Jupiter and a Solar Eclipse in Aries (April 19/20) initiate the freshest love, enterprise and self-actualization cycle you’ve felt since 2004 to 2006.
Rogue comet Chiron, your maverick mentor since April 2018, stays in Aries until 2027 and is particularly potent as Pluto moves into Aquarius. You’ve cultivated your ingenuity and now a rare opportunity portal will open. From 2025 until 2033, Aries talkers, thinkers, writers and media are enormously favored via Uranus in Gemini. But the most significant development?
Neptune in Aries from March 2025 until March 2039. Take a moment to absorb this. Most of your Pluto in Aquarius years will feature Neptune in your sign: one way or another, you’ll be inspired to merge shamanic consciousness, magic and psychedelia into your everyday Ramzilla mission mode.
Try to thwart or ignore this and it will seep through in the form of a meandering imagination, new penchant for long-shot love affairs and lottery ‘systems’ or an adherence to cult-like compulsions. Actually, wait – as an Aries, you’d start the cult. Still – no.
Neptune in Aries not only enhances psy-powers and artistry, it supports Pluto in Aquarius and a more ‘you’ social scene or even audience.
It would be understandable if you were contemplating Pluto in Aquarius with some sort of trepidation. Saturn in Aquarius was not an easy ride for Taureans: will Pluto in the same sign be simply the long-haul version? Actually, no.
2021/2022 was unique. Even without the pandemic et al, you would have met with industrial-strength responsibilities and steep learning trajectory challenges.
Pluto’s entrance to the same turf turns all that lead to gold. Late-notice hackarounds, resilience gained from haggling with trolls and/or arduous work hours will begin to emerge as knowledge, power and wisdom.
Jupiter joins Uranus in Taurus shortly afterward, accentuating business, art, commerce and inventiveness: the April 2024 Jupiter-Uranus conjunction will be a peak accomplishment/fulfillment moment for Taureans.
Uranus lingers in Taurus till 2025/2026 and then the outer planets become an elemental symphony of Fire and Air – Neptune will be in Aries and Uranus in Gemini – aka your solar $$$ sector. You may feel out of tune with the cultural rhythm but you’ll have marvellous money stars.
Mid-2026 until mid-2028 features a series of auspicious alignments between Uranus and your new career-influencer Pluto. Brilliant for money, influence and reputation, it will favor an airy approach – ideas, digital culture, fluidity, new technology, sparking connections between people etc.
For you, a Pluto sign change can also signal a new love era and with abundance-attractant Jupiter in your sign from May 2023 until May 2024, any fresh romance or relationship protocol will be vivid.
Chiron in your sign from April 2027 until 2034 – yes, seven years – is potentially brilliant. Whatever you developed/develop in your Uranus-dominant era – 2018-2025/2026, Chiron can help you find a cool niche for it.
Yet your prevailing Pluto in Aquarius era vibe will be an increasingly more passionate and empowered vocation/business realm and Neptune in your solar soul sector: from March 2025 until 2039, you’re more tapped into alt-dimensions and dream worlds. It’s an extraordinarily cool combo for metaphysical, creative and healing careers.
Mars will still be in Gemini as Pluto enters Aquarius. The action planet moves on a few days later but still – it’s as if you’re on a seven-month self-mastery and skills-acquisition bender to prepare for this unprecedented expansion.
Aside from a spot of jigging around between early Aquarius and late Capricorn, Pluto will be in this elementally simpatico Air sign until 2044. The last Outer Planet in Air phase was Neptune in Aquarius from the late Nineties till 2011. Pluto in Libra – 1971 to 1984 – was the last Air Pluto.
You’ll feel more aligned with the cultural zeitgeist then you have in over a decade and your talents/vibe will be more in demand. For Geminis, Aquarius represents the 9th House, aka ‘higher mind’ sector – knowledge, travel, and self-development transform you and in turn, you transform others.
Prepare for exceptional opportunities and the chance to really stretch your mercurial mind to a greater extent. If your Pluto in Capricorn phase has featured relationships you like to call “intricate” but which could be better described as “a Byzantine web of fuqery,” you may be about to run out of bandwidth for them.
Pluto in Aquarius has reinforcements but they don’t show up until 2025: Neptune is in Aries from March of that year till 2039 – think vast, nebulous networks, an audience for artistic output, more influence or perhaps even espionage. Friendships will move to their own morphic resonance and romantically, your ‘type’ could alter quite drastically.
From July 2025, Uranus is in Gemini for eight years! The rad planet makes a sensational sync to Pluto in Aquarius over 2026 to 2028, revolutionizing your love life, opportunities and intellect.
Culturally, this Air synergy will accelerate all sorts of communication, science, media and tech – it’s also the vibe for Gemini reinvention.
Interestingly, July 2025 is also when Solar Maximum is predicted to occur – so Uranus will enter Gemini just as the Sun is at it’s most potent in years. Think solar flares, electrical weirdness and you in your garage laboratory already so ahead of the game.
