Pluto can bring profound change

On 23 March 2023 , a momentous astrological event took place. Pluto, our planet of profound change, moves from Capricorn into progressive Aquarius .

Even though Pluto is the most distant and smallest planet from us, its impact is still very powerful and will now strongly shape an entire generation.


The change of Pluto into a new sign of the zodiac can trigger developments that become significant for the individual but also for the whole of humanity. There are intense, soulful, and creative powers that  could affect us here and bring fundamental change.

Transformations in freedom, innovation, and progress

Now this transformation is taking place under the sign of Aquarius. Aquarius is considered a true philanthropist, he is social, thinks of the common good and takes  social responsibility. Freedom and independence are also themes that are important to this reforming star sign. And last but not least: The enthusiasm and love for innovations of all kinds . Aquarians are fascinated by new technical possibilities and inventions, and they are generally very open to everything new and, above all, positively inclined.

The potential of Change: A look back at History

The last time Pluto was in the sign of Aquarius was between 1777 and 1799. A brief look back at world events at that time shows the potential for change that this Pluto position carries. For example, the American War of Independence (1775 - 1783), the adoption of the Bill of Rights (1789), and the French Revolution (1789 - 1799) with its struggle for civil liberties all took place during this period.


Since Russia attacked Ukraine in violation of international law, and courageous Iranians have been rebelling against their oppression, we probably all sense, at the latest, that there will be more struggles for social and individual freedoms in the years to come. The Aquarian energy supports people's need for freedom and independence, and we will probably experience upheavals in this respect in the next few years.

Revolutionary scientific developments

And also, in the area of progress , which is close to Aquarius' heart, we can already see the beginning of revolutionary technical and scientific developments that will be downright groundbreaking in the next 10 years. In medicine, for example, work is proceeding at full speed on novel vaccines against cancer. Here, mRNA technology opens up a wide field.

Likewise, in the field of technology, for example with artificial intelligence , we are at the beginning of a profound change that will affect us all.

The dawning Aquarian Age holds great opportunities for humanity to make all our lives more social, freer, fairer, and healthier and should be welcomed by us not with worry but with hope!


Pluto calls on every individual to

  • Be open to new things! The Aquarian energy directs our gaze towards technology and progress. We should take advantage of the opportunities this offers and integrate them into our lives
  • Work for the common good: Aquarius is social and always thinks of his fellow human beings when he acts. It encourages us to think about how we can contribute to a good community
