Pluto in Aquarius until 2043: An impulse of rebirth
Attention, attention, a great phase of change is in perspective. Do you think I’m overreacting? Well, if so, let’s take a little look back at some important points of history 🧐, that I evoked in my 2023 horoscope, (#proud). This will show you just how much Pluto entering Aquarius represents a real tsunami. Looking back at the last times that Pluto entered Aquarius, the French Revolution took place and the US Constitution was also drafted. This planetary movement encourages revolts, breaks down barriers, and makes individuals more progressive and sometimes more "explosive". It exacerbates the evolution of mentalities. This is the beginning of a great phase of change, we will have a taste of it here, but we will come back to it when Pluto is well installed in Aquarius in 2024.
Pluto may be a slow dwarf planet, but when it enters Aquarius it almost takes on a factious air. For such a small planet, the damage Pluto does in encouraging revolts, is surprising 🧨. And where does that leave us in the middle of it all? Well, we’ll find ourselves wanting change and wanting it now! We’ll be more progressive, but also more explosive than ever, hence why we’ll yearn for evolutions and transformations. Firstly, because the phase of change that began on March 23 is only a foretaste of what's to come, since Pluto will be well installed in Aquarius in 2024. Second: Pluto enters Aquarius and will remain there until... March 2043. This means that we have plenty of time to prepare our small and big revolts.
🗓️ This March 23, 2023, Pluto will move from the sign of Capricorn to the sign of Aquarius and will remain there until June 11, 2023. Then, he will be in Aquarius from January 21 to September 2, 2024. Finally, after retrograde, he will definitively settle in Aquarius on November 20, 2024, and stay there until the beginning of March 2043.
Beyond what we have described above from a general point of view, from a world point of view (revolt, radical transformation of all that is ordered, established, extraordinary progress of mentalities, technology, etc...), it is necessary to add that: after a period of Transit of Pluto in Capricorn where we were forced to fend for ourselves, in an individualistic way at times, to find the system D to get by, in a very concrete way, Pluto in Aquarius brings us back to more open-mindedness, to the power of solidarity and to the rise of spirituality.
The slower a planet is, the stronger its effects are
As a reminder, in astrology, the slower a planet is, the rarer its transits are and the more important they are. Pluto is what we call a very slow planet. It is generational; many of us have Pluto in the same sign over several generations! It must be said that Pluto completes its revolution around the Sun in more or less 248 years. Likewise, it remains in a sign for more or less 21 years.
Pluto, aka transformation + Aquarius, aka protest
♇ Pluto cumulates a good number of taboos on its own: death, mourning, anxieties, sexuality, impulses, manipulation, power, occult sciences, etc. But it also symbolizes transformation and metamorphosis. The idea of mourning is very strong with Pluto and as there are not a thousand ways to tell you, you will have to get used to the idea that we will all lose something or someone 😲. But enough of pathos, the main idea is to die, certainly, but to be better reborn, to dispossess ourselves in order to gain depth and wisdom.
♒ With Aquarius it's protest and indignation that prevails with, as a bonus, an intense taste for freedom and the fierce will not to be bullied. In short, we can understand why with Pluto in Aquarius, there are deep questions and desires for destruction. The fact remains that the destruction can be done gently (if it is possible 😇 !), especially since Aquarius is there for that. The little avant-garde side helps to envision the reconstruction that follows.
What influence does this have on your astrological sign?
After a period of transit of Pluto in Capricorn where we were obliged to manage alone, in an individualistic way sometimes, to find the system D to get by, in a very concrete way, Pluto in Aquarius brings us back to more open-mindedness, to the power of solidarity and to the rise of spirituality. With him, we get to the bottom of things, it is impossible to remain in the superficial.
- Aquarius, Leo, Taurus, Scorpio: it's time for a deep mutation, for questions to be asked. On the positive side, Scorpio, with Pluto as its ruling planet, knows all about it. Taurus, will still have a hard time letting go of their little habits, their little comforts, but no choice, when you have to go, you have to go.
- Leo: you'll have to put your pride aside, an initiatory path is opening before you, but you'll come out of it grown up when you'll have accepted to let go of a contract or an important union. Strength & honor to you.
- Aquarius: this is a time of stripping away. You could lose a loved one, a reference person, money, a job etc... You will come out richer with a new outlook on life. Oh, I see you coming, no need to freak out, this is about grabbing Pluto's hand and moving forward, rich with its teachings. Don't see Pluto as a destroyer.
- Aries, Libra, Gemini, Sagittarius: Bingo, you are clearly the big winners, Pluto allows you to better understand yourself, others and even make some positive changes in your life.
- Cancer, Capricorn: it will be less spectacular, but you feel relieved and calmed.
- Virgo, Pisces: it's an in-between time, one minute it's positive, the next it's negative... Take heart.
If we just go by Pluto's Transit in relation to your Sun's position in your astrological sign, you will be affected in the next 3 years (i.e. by spring 2026) by this influence if your Sun is between 0 and 5 degrees from your sign. If your Sun is at 15 degrees, for example, Pluto will have an impact on you later on...
According to your birth chart, you should already see what influence Pluto has on your rising sign, in addition to your zodiac sign. Also, if you have several planets in Aquarius, Pluto will pass over these planets at some point during its transit in Aquarius. This will produce a particular event and climate. ➡️ For example, if you are Gemini, so your Sun is in Gemini. Pluto is well connected to your Sun since it is in Aquarius, a "friendly" sign to yours. You will therefore receive positive influences from him. However, let's imagine that your Venus is in Aquarius (at 2 degrees of Aquarius). Well, when Pluto passes over your Venus (at 2 degrees of Aquarius), it will certainly lead to the definitive end of a sentimental relationship. For these details, obviously, a consultation with an astrologer can help.
Pluto - The dwarf planet
Discovered in 1930, Pluto was classified as a planet for almost eighty years before being demoted to dwarf planet in 2006. Interestingly enough, it’s orbit of the Sun can vary massively (between 4 and 7 billion kilometers) meaning there are periods where it is in fact closer to the Sun than Neptune. Its diameter is a mere, 2370 kilometers - making it two thirds the size of the Moon. It is known as an ice dwarf due to the fact that its surface is mainly composed of rock and icy water.
In mythology, Pluto is known as the God of the Underworld
The Roman god Pluto (Hades in Greek mythology) is the son of Saturn, and like his siblings, he was devoured by his father. That said, his brother Jupiter freed him following a battle with Saturn, and the world was divided between the brothers as a result. Jupiter took control of the heavens, Neptune the oceans, and Pluto the Underworld.
Pluto is often depicted in mythology wielding a scepter and riding a chariot. He has a thick beard and occasionally wears an invisible helmet. His three-headed dog that guards the Underworld, Cerberus, can also be seen from time to time in artworks.

Why Pluto is so essential in astrology: It's the bringer of transformation
It might no longer be considered as an official planet, but its influences in the astrology world cannot be ignored. Like Uranus, it is known as a slow planet, meaning it spends extremely long periods in zodiac signs. When Pluto happens to be in your sign, you should expect power given to your subconscious mind, instincts, and fears. It symbolizes the unknown in the shadows, sexuality, and the unknown.
When in relation to other planets, it has a tendency to amplify the abilities of its fellow astral bodies. For example, when in relation to the Sun, Pluto urges fresh charisma and ambition. That said, if the Sun and Pluto are badly connected, then anxieties and fear will tighten their grips.
What’s more, Pluto’s slow movement can bring about unbelievable transformation. The dwarf planet embodies the concept of death and rebirth, in the same way a phoenix is born from its own ashes. If Pluto’s in motion, then it’d be wise to continue through, because things will always be calm following the storm.
