By January 25, 2024Pluto, Signs: Aquarius

Pluto Enters Aquarius, January 2024:
Transforming Democracy

Pluto enters Aquarius this month, January 2024. 2023 brought some major shifts to us humans on Earth. Probably the biggest of these changes involved Pluto, the lord of the underworld. Last year, Pluto left Capricorn, where it had been for 15 years, and entered Aquarius for the first time. Next, Pluto traveled backwards to 27° Capricorn. 

Now, Pluto enters Aquarius for the second time, and will spend much of the year there. Pluto will have one last stint in Capricorn, briefly, in the fall. And finally, Pluto will enter Aquarius to stay in November 2024. All the dates when Pluto shifts back and forth between Capricorn and Aquarius are shown in the diagram below.

Pluto enters the Fixed Air sign Aquarius January 20, 2024. Thus, Pluto will take the next major step in his grueling 20-month long transition out of Capricorn. Next, he will continue to retrograde several times back into Capricorn, and then again move direct into Aquarius. Finally, he will enter Aquarius for good on November 19, 2024. Pluto will then continue traveling through Aquarius for about 20 years. 

In the diagram below, you can see the dates of Pluto’s movement over the Capricorn-Aquarius cusp. Likely, these dates will be accompanied by significant transformation in the area of government, politics, social structures, and human rights.

Pluto in Aquarius, 2023

The End of an Era: Pluto in Capricorn

Pluto retrograded back into Capricorn in June of 2023. Since then, we have experiences the death of patriarchal structures, combined with the rise of uneasy scientific innovations. On top of that, we have seen continued economic stress and instability. Additionally, we have seen governments shift from more authoritarian to less and back again. We’re seeing a transformation in any hierarchy that allows one body to wield supremacy and control over another. 

Since Pluto re-entered Capricorn June 11: the Grammy Awards announced that they would begin considering music made with AI eligible for nominations. Japan amended their age of consent from 13 to 16, and also outlawed voyeurism. A string of violence erupted in the occupied West Bank, followed by the explosive conflict in Gaza that continues still. Elsewhere, Andrew Tate was finally charged with rape and human trafficking.

Also, the Támara prison riot occurred. Estonia became the first post-Soviet state to legalize same-sex marriage and same-sex adoption. Meanwhile, the United States became the second country in the world to allow the sale of lab-grown meat. Japan began to discharge treated radioactive waste into the Pacific Ocean. On the 4th of July, in an ironic response to the origin of the holiday, there were 22 mass shootings across the United States.

Pluto Enters Aquarius: Transformation of Ideals

As Pluto enters Aquarius again in January 2024, a new chapter will unfold, with Aquarius as the center of transformation. This includes politics, humanitarianism, social justice, science, technology, social media and the internet. Therefore, this transit will affect our notion of freedom and free speech. Additionally, we will experience revolution surrounding our relationship to social power and control.
