Pluto in Aquarius: The Next Five Years
Just over a month is left until Pluto in Aquarius. This weekend, I will be speaking on this topic and answering your questions at The Astrology Collective’s separate Zoom events
In the final week of March 2023, the themes for the next 20 or so years will be revealed in a dramatic way. The themes for the next 20 years are ‘All hands on deck’, ‘Many hands makes light work’, and ‘Hands cross the water’. This is due to the pandemic and also the climate emergency. There are also happier reasons. I’ll be talking more at The Astrology Collective.
This feature will examine the power of the ancient symbol of power in a sign that represents the people, the group. I will also examine your natal chart, solar charts and Tarot. Pluto moves slowly so let’s take a look at the first five year of Pluto’s life in this feature.
My weekend Zoom meetings will soon seem absolutely outdated due to what’s ahead! Pluto in Aquarius and Uranus in Gemini suggest that technology will be used in a way we never imagined in 2023, 2028. (Photo: Chris Montgomery, Unsplash).
Basic Sun Sign Predictions
Pluto in Aquarius will take up the parenthood and partnership zones of the Leo, Libra and Libra charts. This means that both signs are likely to experience slow, but significant transformations. These signs may be present in your family or partnership. Expect a change in the controls.
Taurus and Virgo may experience a shift of power, possibly a reshuffle. This could affect academic, career, or unpaid work situations – starting in March 2023. This process is ongoing. If you sign with them/for them you can expect frequent departures, arrivals, promotions, demotions, and sideways moves.
Financially, Capricorn and Cancer are both affected. The final week of March is a time when you will be affected financially if either you or your sign are present. Willpower can help you find economic power through your property or business.
One Card Tarot 2023-2044
To get a reading of Pluto in Aquarius 2023-2044, you can use my Smith-Waite Tarot. This card will tell you how Pluto, the planet of power, control, will transform your world, and where it will be located.
Aquarius, Gemini, Libra Trines
Pluto in Aquarius (the power of new friends) allows Gemini (the worldwide web), and Libra (partnerships). This happens when the slow-moving outer planets or nodes transit Gemini and Libra. This also occurs when Pluto in Aquarius natally picks up any Libra or Gemini.
Neptune, a sign of Aries, is the key to Aquarius’ power for the next five year. Online groups can socialize with each other using alternate identities, names, and titles thanks to the sextile between Pluto in Aquarius and Neptune in Aries.
Aquarius, Aries, Libra, Sagittarius Patterns
Aquarius Pluto goes with Aries (titles, appearance, reputation), the same way an army captain goes along with his unit or a frontman with his band. It is compatible with feminism, Germaine Greer, the Plastic Ono Band and Yoko Ono. Each group needs a face. A group is good for every face.
In Rome, an Aquarius was a water-bearer. He provided water for the public fountains that were used by people, as well as the baths, where people could mix and mingle. We are looking forward to a highly social future in 2023-2044.
Libra also has Pluto in Aquarius. A John Lennon or Paul McCartney is essential for every Beatles member. A pair is essential for every group.
Jimmy Page and Robert Plant were the only people who could help Led Zeppelin. Couples can often be the power points of a group with powerful people. Libra is the ruler of peace and war. If justice is served, this is the time when the tribes will fight to balance the Libra scales.
Pluto in Aquarius is sextile Sagittarius. It flows and goes with Sagittarius. This is the Viking model. This is the tribe that travels far and wide. This could be done online or in real life. Sagittarius rules publishing, academia, and the global web. Pluto in Aquarius rules the community that enables and empowers you.
Degrees in Your Table
Pluto moves slowly. You will not be affected by it in the 5 years to 2028, if you have anything between 0-8 degrees of Gemini, Libra, Libra, or Sagittarius.
Your Aquarius Placements
Your Aquarius placement at 0-8 degree in the next five years will be joined by Pluto. You will be challenged by controlling, obsessive, dominating and controlling people and organizations. Friendships and groups are affected. Pluto can empower you if your willpower is strong and you can take control of your life if your self-control is good. The Harper Valley P.T.A. is here. The whole story. This is when you can go from garage band to AC/DC. If you have anything at 0-8 Aquarius you should take your time in forming friendships, clubs, teams, societies, and so forth. Be aware of what you are letting yourself in for.
Pluto will eventually oppose anything you possess at 0-8 Leo over the next five-years. Leo rules the Fifth House of Bedroom, Courtship, Babies; Infants; Schoolchildren; Teenagers; Young Adults. If the transit is upon your, be careful. Pluto can present as powerful, dominating, power-grabbing and controlling people or organizations, which will be a hindrance to your plans. Do not set too high a stake.
Aquarius is the group of friends. Leo is your lover or suitor, partner in crime, child, godchild, younger relative, or the world of young. When Pluto opposes your Aquarius Leo factors, they are diametrically opposite. This is temporary, but it’s challenging!
What To Expect From the Aries-Gemini-Aquarius Cycles
*A world map that has been redrawn with each country redefining their borders or state boundaries. The new USA. The new UK and Europe. Remember Germany’s split? It’s the exact same cycle, but it will impact us all. (Image: Glenn Carsten Peters, Unsplash).
*The car- and public transport revolution will begin in 2026 with group-owned vehicles, group-shared alternative energy buses and trains, and trams. You can buy shares in trucks and buses owned by the community.
*New online language translations will be available in real time, which allows for better global connections. This is possible with both Uranus and Pluto in Aquarius. This is more than subtitles. In translation, we will hear and listen.
*There is a boom in the ‘alternative self’. You can choose from a variety of people to present when you socialize online, and you have a lot of legal names. Nobody knows that you are a dog on the internet (to paraphrase my dog).
*By 2044, a new, unrecognisable UN, NATO, and Commonwealth will exist. We will reach a point in which the USA is no longer a powerful player at the negotiation table than a small island. This is the Aquarian way.
*A replacement monarchy will replace the current United Kingdom structure over a period of 20 years. This cycle has not been seen since France abandoned Louis XVII and Marie Antoinette. Could this happen? It might not be a guillotine but it could be a rebellion.
Year by year, Degree by Degree
2023Pluto at Zero Aquarius in 2023
Pluto in Aquarius at 0, 1, 2, 2024 This trines your 0,1, 2, Libra placements. Pluto ends the year at 1 Aquarius. It sextiles the North Node in 1 Aries, and trines the South Node in 1 Libra. If you are a 1 degree air sign, this is a memorable time. December 30th (New Year’s Eve), and your life as it was 18-19 years ago will be back.
2025Pluto moves in the 1, 2, 3, Aquarius trine 1,2, 3 degree factors at Libra or Gemini (partnership) July 2025 will see Pluto at 2 Aquarius and Neptune at 2. Aries. Zoom Rooms is now in its first year. Aries can be described as title, reputation, or appearance. Neptune is a vacation from reality. Pluto is the symbol of empowerment. Aquarius is the group. For launches on Twitter, or similar platforms, keep an eye out for the days of July 8th through 30th. This is the time to relaunch your profile and portrait if you have any at 2 Aries.
August 2025 is notable for its line-up of Pluto and Neptune at 1 Aquarius, Uranus and Neptune at one Aries, Saturn at one Aries and Uranus at the same time. It looks almost like virtual reality, but without the weird look. You can create convincing, realistic, and natural ‘alternatives to you’ online worlds. This is the start of cyber warfare. On this particular cycle, we haven’t seen Neptune (ruled by Mars the god of war) or Saturn (ruled equally) in Aries. Virtual is the answer to “You and whose army?”
From August 21st through 31st, Pluto, Neptune, and Uranus will all be at one degree. It is possible to transform if you have something at 1 degree in your chart. How? From September 1st through 14th 2025, the flow of Pluto at 1, Neptune at 1, Aries, and Uranus to 1 Gemini will continue.
2026Pluto crosses Aquarius 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 degrees. The flow between Pluto in Aquarius and Uranus (Gemini) resumes in July 2026. From the 7th through 31st July, all three are moving at 4 degrees. Jupiter is in 4 Leo from 19th through 23rd July. This is a significant pattern. It is about the monarchy and its historical changes and challenges. Two siblings may see a shift in the line-up of succession, possibly from 19th to 23rd Jul 2026.
The 28th of July sees the North Node entering Aquarius, and the South Node entering Leo. This suggests a historic period of closure for monarchy. This will continue through next year 2027 with the expiration of the cycle on March 27, 2028. Pluto in Aquarius opposes Leo for approximately two decades. This is the “challenge of change” or even the end. We last saw this during the French Revolution which brought a republic and replaced King George III by Prince Regent George IV.
2027Pluto crosses Aquarius 4, 5, 6, 7, 7 in 2027. We continue the theme of “the new virtual me” online with friends, as we see more of the flow patterns that Uranus in Gemini and Neptune are in Aries. From June 6th through 17th, a precise line-up of 6 degrees is available: Pluto 6 Aquarius; Uranus 6 Gemini; Neptune 6 Aries. The November 16th-19th period is crucial, because the exact conjunction of Pluto at Aquarius and the North Node at Aquarius at 4 Aquarius makes it central. This is the transformation process of the United Nations and possibly other groups, such as NATO and the Commonwealth. The South Node, which is located at 4 Leo, opposes Pluto and Leo rules monarchy, will likely see countries leaving between November 16th and 19th 2027. The monarch will be removed as Head of State.
2028Pluto crosses 6, 7, and 8 degrees of Aquarius, 2028. A stunning trine to Uranus takes place in Gemini. From January 3rd through 31st 2028, Pluto will be at 6 Aquarius and Uranus at 6. Gemini. This will allow you to be online with powerful new friends if you own anything within 6 degrees of the signs of the air. The years 2008-2023, and their controlling elites, will soon be forgotten as trade unions dominate and “the new people power” takes over.
This is partly due to the mask of your alternate self, your alternate face, style, and wardrobe. In 2028, the recurring link to Neptune in Aries also returns. From May 14th through 31st, Pluto will be at 8 Aquarius and Neptune at 8. Aries. Pluto also trine Uranus from 8 Aquarius up to 8 Gemini in May 2028.
The stage is set for major breakthroughs in the areas of marriage and partnership soon after Jupiter enters Libra on the 25th August 2028. This will allow us to expand our knowledge of the possibilities for union between couples. September 2028 will be a special month, as Jupiter at 6 Libra meets Pluto at 6 Aquarius.
