Pluto in Aquarius

Pluto entered Aquarius on Sunday, January 20th, 2024 , while a conjunction was formed with the Sun entering Aquarius. This is very powerful, as the Sun amplifies any planet it touches. Pluto is all about transformation, intensity, magnetism, and power. Aquarius is all about the advancement of civilization and humanity, as well as technological advances.


Pluto stays in Aquarius until March 10, 2043, when it enters Pisces. Keep in mind that Pluto will retrograde in Capricorn on September 1st, 2024, and will finally return for good on November 19th, 2024, in the sign of Aquarius. But what does this all mean for you? You are about to find out!

The Mythology Behind Pluto and Aquarius

First, there was the sky god Ouranos, ruler of Aquarius, who fathered all the Titans and gods. He is the highest point of the Greek god chain when looking at their origins. Hades (Pluto) was his grandson and ruler of the Underworld.

Here, you have the highest point – Ouranos (Uranus) (the mind), and the lowest point, Hades (Pluto) (the base of the body and sexual organs). Therefore, Pluto in Aquarius will show the shadowy side of Aquarius, and Aquarius’ energy will help Pluto transform to its highest ideals.

What Will Pluto in Aquarius Affect?

Pluto represents change, transformation, and sexual energy, while Aquarius is an androgynous sign that looks at humanity as a whole. There will definitely be a stronger emphasis on gender-based roles, seeing them melt into one another to the point of many platonic friendships occurring that are strictly asexual.


An advancement of science will occur and cures for many diseases may be found. There will definitely be an advancement in technology, and dangers in AI may occur where computers “take control.” So, this needs to be carefully monitored by scientists dealing with such matters.

Social change will also occur where transformation in societal structures will break down so that governments will possibly stand for and by the people.

People will also play around with their sexuality, and a lot of experimentation will come out of it from the Pluto (Scorpio) side of lust and desire to the Aquarius side of new sexual technological “tools” being created to the elevation of sexual practices through spirituality.

The 5 Signs Most Positively Affected by Pluto in Aquarius

1.      Gemini

Geminis will enjoy the intensity of this energy. They will start becoming more curious about humanity as a whole and spiritual matters and will dedicate much of their time to research of this kind. They may even be curious about alien life forms. This is the perfect time to enroll in degrees such as mechanical engineering and buy the car of their dreams.


2.      Libra

Now is the time for Librans to examine their romantic and platonic relationships and “weed” out those that don’t serve them in a purpose that fulfills their soul. It is time to eliminate “toxic” friends who bring them no joy, no matter how hard this may be.

3.      Aquarius

Finally, Aquarius, you will be put to the test in great ways ! Transformations will occur in different aspects of your life, from the friends you hang out with to how you approach work. You may even come up with a “start-up” idea to create a technology company that can change the world. If you are interested in politics and want to lead a party, there is power behind you now!

4.      Aries

Pluto’s energy in Aquarius helps you exceed your leadership goals . You will have the urge to be more of a daredevil, take many chances, and feed your adrenalin. It is a massively beneficial time to create a workout plan, look after your body, and train like a soldier going to war.

This energy will feed your muscles and help give you athletic prowess. Pluto in Aquarius will also help you become more rational so that you don’t lose your temper or become impatient too quickly. You may fall in love with your best friend.


5.      Sagittarius

Here, a ⚹extile is formed. Pluto in Aquarius transforms Sagittarius so that they will completely break free from anyone or anything that holds them down . Sagittarians are born lucky, and now is a wonderful time to make a network of friends of many different cultures, go out, explore – and document all your travels or higher learning with content that can be published on a big platform.

These 7 Signs May Struggle with Pluto in Aquarius

Many lessons will be learned during the Pluto in Aquarius cycle for the rest of the Signs. No matter how hard they may be, it is for your life's and soul's greater good. Let’s take a look:

1.      Taurus

Pluto rules Scorpio (Taurus’ Opposition) and sits in Aquarius. Both Aquarius and Taurus are Fixed Signs, and a natural Square occurs. Square aspects challenge people the most in life but also teach them great lessons.

Here, Pluto in Aquarius tells Taurus to come out of their shells and homes that they love hibernating in, so they can socialize, and make more friends. As the most self-sufficient sign, Taurus can be such an amazing teacher to society and humanity in practical ways. It is time to show people your worth, value, and skills, Taurus – no matter how shy you are and how hard that may be!


2.      Cancer

Cancerians cry, empathize, and feel. They are the greatest nurses, social workers, kindergarten teachers, and animal naturopaths. There is a tie between Pluto and Cancer simply due to the fact that Pluto rules Scorpio, a Water Sign, and Cancer is also a Water Sign (ruled by the Moon). However, now Aquarius is involved and the Aquarius/Cancer relationship is hard. Aquarius is all about emotional detachment.

Pluto in Aquarius tells Cancer to wipe away their tears, push through whatever is troubling them , and think from the mind. It is necessary to detach from emotions that run too deep. This also applies to friendships, and Pluto in Aquarius tells Cancer to detach from friends who gossip too much, causing drama or situations that are too dramatic. When it comes to love, Cancer, think a bit more rationally.

3.      Leo

Ouch! When Pluto enters Aquarius, an opposition to Leo is formed. This tells Leo to wake up and stop thinking just about themselves so much. They need to think of humanity and society and how their efforts, service, and energy can benefit society as a whole.


4.      Virgo

As Pluto enters Aquarius, Virgo will take the energy that Pluto’s previous stay in Capricorn gave them – structure, delegation, and order – and apply it to big projects involving people. They will reach the goals they have dreamt about. The time for action is now. Go after your dreams, Virgo. It will not be easy, but this must be done.

5.      Scorpio

Pluto in Aquarius messes with Scorpio’s mind. Scorpio is a psychic sign that penetrates, feels, gets jealous, can be vengeful, desires, lusts after, and creates intensity and magnetism wherever they go. With Pluto in Aquarius, a Square is formed, and Scorpio will be presented with difficult lessons where they will need to learn to rise above their anger or hurt and react in a more diplomatic and rational way. The mind takes over feelings here . Where they will benefit is the exploration of their sexuality to higher realms.

6.      Capricorn

Pluto in Aquarius does not hit Capricorn too hard as Aquarius forms a ⚺extil to it. However, a great sense of duty will be felt by Capricorn, who will need to create great projects and put teams of people together to get them done. It is a good time for Capricorns to invest in technology and surround themselves with it, whether at home, work, or even in their cars.


7.      Pisces

Here, Scorpio in Aquarius ⚺extils Pisces. Pisces often suffers the most in life out of all the Signs. They are the martyrs of the Zodiac. What does Scorpio in Aquarius tell Pisces to do? “Stop daydreaming and running away, and follow your dreams and goals.”

It forces Pisces to start thinking, really thinking deeply, about how they can make progress in their lives . It also encourages Pisces to go out, connect with more people, and make friends, something timid and shy Pisces finds exceptionally hard to do.

It is a great time to listen to masters such as Louise Hay and repeat affirmations Pisces. Read books by Tony Robbins, such as “The Giant Within.” A transformation is on the horizon. Now is the time to do something about all the dreams and wishes you seek to have and accomplish, no matter how hard it may be.

Final Thoughts

It is important to note that while Pluto is in Aquarius, Uranus is currently in Taurus (Pluto’s (Scorpio’s) opposite until 2025. This affects the banking system and money, security, food, estates, nature, women’s rights, and luxury goods. When looking at Pluto in Aquarius, one must realize and look at the interconnectedness of the Universe and what this placement will eventually bring – change in society and humanity as a whole . It will be a very interesting 19 years until Pluto moves into Pisces.
