2023 – Important Energetic Shifts!

March 23, 2023 – Pluto in Aquarius
TODAY- For the first time in 225 years, dwarf planet Pluto, the transformer, enters Aquarius! The last time Pluto was in Aquarius was 1778 – 1798, while America fought its revolutionary war with England and planet Uranus was discovered. This generational shifting of gears occurs over the next 20 months, as Pluto will retrograde back into Capricorn 2 times before November 19, 2024, and will then remain in Aquarius until March 8, 2043. Dwarf planet Pluto takes approximately 248 years to orbit the Sun and, due to its elliptical orbit can spend 12-32 years in one sign of the zodiac. For the last 15 years, Pluto has been moving slowly through the sign of Capricorn (Nov 26, 2008 to Mar 23, 2023) activating significant transformations, especially in the areas of life associated with Capricorn, Aries, Cancer, and Libra concerns –in our lives and in the world.
Pluto is an intense planetary energy that corresponds with inevitable, inexorable, and deep, foundational changes. Its cycles are similar to gut renovations of buildings where first the old, outworn structures must be removed to make way for new improvements. In some cases, some of the original pieces can be restored and re-installed as part of the upgrade. Similar to architectural renovations, Pluto experiences can be lengthy processes that involve loss or letting go, stirring up messes to remove what is no longer viable, recovering and restoring lost treasures, and then beginning the rebuild. If something cannot be salvaged, we will need to release it. Sometimes these changes are welcome and other times we’re faced with letting go of circumstances, situations, or even people, that we would not have wanted to lose. Recognizing and grieving losses could be important and valuable. Over time, it’s likely that the more we can accept and allow for profound change, the more we will be strengthened and renewed as a result. Loosely quoting from the novel, Empire Falls, “like a mighty river, life must eventually go where it will, not where you would have it go.”
Pluto moving through Aquarius relates to everyone, not just Aquarians! Pluto in Aquarius will activate various sectors of life as reflected in your astrology chart — most noticeably the areas of your chart with house or planetary placements in Aquarius, Taurus, Leo, or Scorpio.
