Takeaway: Transformation and Healing is in focus as Pluto Moves into Aquarius - Astrology 2024

Transformation is the main goal of Pluto – highlighting hidden themes of our psyche or society and exposing them for them to be released, destroyed but ultimately healed through. On a societal level this is a humanitarian and collective transit – for the greater good and it is about shaking off power and control that isn’t in societies best interest. This can take a long to be exposed and for people to rebel and fight for their freedom This can be done through communities online and in collaboration with technology. All of this is to reclaim power for the people.

We will have very different societies by 2044 – possibly divided with some having built separate communities away from Government ruled restrictions or impositions. The currency going digital brings a form of tracking and lack of freedom and this can’t go well in Aquarius so some will reject this straight away and make moves to define their own societies. Climate change, exposing the powerful in society for anything that is hidden and dark in their worlds, exposing harm to the vulnerable and freedom of movement may be in bog focus during this transit.

The transit through Capricorn showed the power of governments and leaders and the richest in the world to take control and prosper and create cycles of chaos in order to do so. Financial crashes and restriction in our movements are increasing and these are being exposed as power moves that are not in the best interest of all people and Aquarius will strive to make changes to this, now it is being exposed. The financial crash came in2008 when Pluto moved into Capricorn. New technologies will rapidly advance now and it may be control through our spending with digital currencies now – but hopefully there will be deregulation and a chance for all people to grow and flourish with Aquarius energies at play. Social media connections and communities are giving people the power of connection and learning like never before and this is going to advance – it needs to be done with the best intentions for it to be successful.

The last time Pluto was in Aquarius there were some revolutions and rebellions in the world. This brought huge changes to who had power in the world.  The American and French revolutions occurred and the Industrial revolutions. This brought freedom and liberation from the English and French monarchies. Even in my own hometown we had a rebellion and uprising in 1798 which was a major time here, we have memorials of this time, statues, rebel songs, streets are named after it.

Pluto ingresses into Aquarius on January 21st or 20th – depending on your location. It moves into Aquarius in conjunction with the Sun, the Sun is highlighting an area that needs transformation and healing in this part of your life. Pay attention to what occurs on this date and the days following to see the themes of Pluto’s transformation during this long term transit. It may not be felt by many people for some time, as it is a slow moving transit and those with angles or planets at the early degrees of Aquarius and the fixed signs of Taurus, Leo and Scorpio will feel this the most. Up to 2 degrees will be felt during this year.

Looking back to March of 2023 and what was occurring at this time will also give you an idea of themes that may come up for you, this was when Pluto first moved into Aquarius and gave us a taste of things to come. In the world at large, Chat GPT took off and really became popular and some of the financial institutions collapsed, so it will be interesting to see what occurs when all the planets go direct on January 27th and from then on into the future of this transit. Lots of new technological advancements and reform of digital currencies and banking are most likely, with power and control at the core of this. So we must be aware and careful of our assets and resources.

Most of the Millennial generation with Pluto in Scorpio and some late degrees of Pluto in Libra are currently and will experience the Pluto square aspect in their lives and this is a challenging transit, that brings some deep and profound reflection, and it is a long transit and ongoing healing. It is one that brings great insights and strength, but we must go through the pain and unearth the changes required first. The strength of this will depending on the personal planets in aspect to this. Pluto rules Scorpio, so the house that Scorpio rules, must also be considered during this transit, as it will encompass themes of this house also. This is incorporated in the 12 signs forecast below.

Pluto is activating the Full Moon in Leo that occurs on January 25th and it activating the Sun by conjunction still, ruler of the house the Full Moon is occurring in. This is a deeply transformational new moon and time to release and let go of anything that is holding you back, nostalgia, traditions and ego can all be features of this Full Moon and releasing this for transformation will bring you to a higher purpose and a more benevolent and optimistic outlook. There is a square to Jupiter occurring with this Full Moon which is protective  but some work is needed to find the wisdom and healing in this energy.

A key date for 2024 is June 3rd, when Pluto will trine Jupiter and it will be felt more strongly by all, this can be a powerful time of healing.

Below is a table with the forecast for each of the 12 signs by Ascendent. This will show you which area of life this long term transit will be activating and transforming, incorporating the energy of the house Scorpio is placed in.

Each sign has a key question that will bring the themes into focus.

11h – sextile AC square Pluto


1st house - AC

This is a big transit for those with Aquarius AC. The sun and Pluto are leaving the 12th house where you have been transforming yourself and your subconscious since 2008. You may have gone through a lot of changes in your Spirituality, connection to your subconscious, sleeping, some hidden enemies may have appeared and brough some challenged – especially if they appeared as friends, you may have suffered some losses and lost some people and also done some shadow work. This is a very hidden house and it may have highlighted addictions or self sabotaging patterns that needed to be transformed. The Sun will highlight over the next couple of days what needs to be finally wrapped up and put to rest, with a chance to revisit and finalise in September.

As the Sun and Pluto moves into the 1st house, it is bringing radical changes and transformation to you as a person – to your image, appearance, body and how you put yourself out to the world. This can also be linked to your career and you may change this direction also. It could also be that you want to focus on your legacy and the mark you want to make in the world. This is a very transformational time and it is going to transit your AC but it is a long transit so this will be felt by those with the AC in the first 2 degrees only this year, so it may only be felt slightly if you are at the later degrees this year. It is going to be felt in your home, relationships and career also over this transit and you will change yourself and these areas during the next 20 years in an empowering way. Think back to March 2023 and it may give some indications as to themes that may occur.

Who AM I?

10h – angle – sq AC/Pluto


12th house

This is a difficult house for Pluto to transit in that it is another hidden house. Pisces can handle it better than other signs as it is a mystical sign and can connect easily and with compassion to the subconscious and Spiritual planes. As I mentioned the areas in focus that will be highlighted when the Sun and Pluto enter Aquarius for Pisces rising are concerned with focus and connection to your Spirituality, connection to your subconscious, sleeping, hidden enemies that appear as friends, there may be some losses and some shadow work. This is a very hidden house, and it may highlight addictions, especially to technology or self-sabotaging patterns that needed to be transformed. Pluto is ruling your 9th house which is trine your AC and this is bringing a higher moral compass to this transit and a deepening of your Spiritual practices and how you connect to the divine. Using technologies to overcome and subconscious patterns that are focused on the mind such as hypnotherapy or NLP could overcome these patterns easily for you. You may also use some new and emerging therapies or technologies. You may also spend time in faraway places for retreats as a form of exploration and connection to your inner self. Astrology is another area of exploration that may come up and help as a guidance system. Overall, it will be a time for inner connection and transformational inner work.

What are my Spiritual practices and how do I connect with myself and Divine will?
