Pluto in Aquarius - 20 Years of Revolutionary Change Pt. 2
Category: Astrological News Written by Robert Wilkinson
Yesterday we began our look at the coming 20 year Pluto transit of Aquarius, and the transformative changes in store for the world.
I also introduced the long wave cycles of Uranus and Neptune in Aquarius which set major cycles of awakening and collective awareness into motion not too many years ago. Today we continue our examination of what we can expect during Pluto’s transit of Aquarius.
Given that both Capricorn and Aquarius are ruled by Saturn, what are the major differences in Pluto’s transit of Capricorn versus its coming transit of Aquarius?
Similarities and Differences Between Capricorn and Aquarius
When examining the nature of Aquarian energies, we have to remember that Saturn rules both Aquarius and Capricorn. Capricorn precedes Aquarius. Capricorn gives practical structures organized as hierarchies of action. While Saturn’s Capricorn nature creates systems, Saturn’s Aquarian nature revolts against the binding force of the system it just established. If Capricorn is a sign of personal power, Aquarius seeks a greater ideal of its power moved into collective levels.
Capricorn’s keywords are Crystallization and Group Activity. These are followed by the Aquarius keywords Contribution and Management. These signs are both about systems, and all systems have a structure which defines their limitation. Aquarius is the “meta system,” the ideal which seeks to encompass all systems, all things, all views, all approaches, within the vision of the greatest ideal. It is Fixed Air as a cooperative ideal, where each member contributes to the greater good of the whole.
Capricorn is about the status quo and social traditions and rules. Aquarius is about thinking outside the box, looking ahead with an eye to how current systems can be modified to further a greater collective good. While Capricorn builds structures, Aquarius uses new techniques to improve on those systems. While both Capricorn and Aquarius are regarded as somewhat selfish, Aquarius is “selfish in the name of the group good,” and so the ideal vision serves the collective betterment rather than individual gain.
As can be inferred, as the Aquarian energies become more and more embedded in collective consciousness, we could see new structures, new laws, new rules, and new ideals which seek to “level the playing field” in the name of equality. This yields a greater tolerance for innovation and less clinging to old hierarchical models. Aquarius is like a jazz band; each steps up at the right time, and then fades back into the collective effort. Differences are valued over conformity, and so the synthesizing quality of Aquarius encompasses much more than Capricorn.
What Marc Edmund Jones and Dane Rudhyar Say About Pluto in Aquarius
Marc Edmund Jones in his Astrology: How and Why it Works, offered that Pluto in Aquarius “creates a characteristic intellectual epoch marked by a high sense of group potentialities. The native is inclined to see possibilities in everything around him, and to give them high publicity. Here is the psychological support for social sharing, represented by people born in the 1778-1800 period, and by the first great surge in immigration, and of urban and industrial development.”
Dane Rudhyar offer us this about the last time Pluto transited Aquarius. “Pluto's challenge was then directed to those who had upset the traditional order. As ideals had to be made concrete and workable, the revolutionists' triumph could be followed by harsh problems.
A conservative U.S. Constitution followed an idealistic Declaration; and in France, Bonaparte dreamed of empire after the chaotic years of the Revolution. The basis of the Industrial Revolution was laid down by various technological inventions, especially the steam engine (Watt). The message of Pluto in Capricorn is that ideals have to be translated into some form of large-scale organization if they are to be effective.”
So What’s Coming When Pluto Transits Aquarius?
I believe that Pluto in Aquarius 2023 – 2043 will bring a global growth and acceptance of Astrology, as well as an increasing widespread sense of working together for a greater good. I also believe it will bring a resistance to old control systems because of a long term shift away from materialistic hierarchical models and the emerging awareness of the interconnectedness of all of life after mid-century as a result of the Aquarian systems being built between now and then.
Obviously, Pluto in Aquarius will sprout the seeds of future technology, future medical breakthroughs and more, because of the holistic approach Aquarius takes. An example of this is the awakened and increasing widespread acceptance of 4th and 5th Wave medicine. 4th Wave medicine involves alternative healing methods, while 5th Wave medicine utilizes nonlocal vibrational medical techniques, such as distance diagnosis and healing. Both of these to some degree are the pioneering forms of using sound and light for healing.
I expect accelerated breakthroughs in all electromagnetic technology. We are already seeing dramatic advances in battery technology which will in turn lead to increasing use of renewable energy systems both for individuals and corporations. The old mechanistic models will give way to synergetic systems which in turn will facilitate further electromagnetic breakthroughs. The world of 2100 will be radically different than the world of 2000!
Again, Pluto is an "invisible" influence which deals with seeds. In Divine mechanics, it is the Law of Economy of Energy. That implies Plutonic seeds will be planted to "see to the core" of all things within "the Oneness of All." Pluto is a purifying fire, and "Lord of the Underworld." That implies the purification of Astrology, with some ancient superstitions placed in "the astrology museum" and developments related to human evolution, human consciousness (individual and collective) and broader transpersonal cycles of change become more a part of the general curricula.
We’ll see a huge leap forward when Saturn and Neptune conjunct in Aries, the sign of pioneering new beginnings. Add Pluto in Aquarius and Uranus in Gemini, I suspect we’ll see a huge series of openings re: new ideas, new approaches, new openness in the collective to do something new and different beginning 2025. That’s the point when we leave the Winter of the 21st century these past 25 years and enter the Spring of the 21st century.
So regarding the emerging Astrological revolution, Pluto will sprout the seeds, but the expansion of "the Aquarian idea of astrology" won't happen until the next Jupiter transit of Aquarius, and those expanded views will not become canon until the next transit of Saturn through Aquarius 2050-2053. While we'll see many seeds of widespread growth in astrology relative to the collective, we'll be living with what we have for many years to come.
The growth of the emerging Aquarian energies will begin in February 2024. The biggest leaps in widespread astrological growth will occur July 2026, Jan 2028, and the years after 2033, which brings us Jupiter in Aquarius conjunct Pluto in Aquarius, launching an expansion which will become part of the general working knowledge of astrology by mid-century. Of course this will apply across all of life's dimensions, so those new seeds which sprout at that time will have global effects in the years after.
That Jupiter/Pluto cycle will take us into mid-century. We will surely have a far different collective mindset after the next transit of Saturn through Aquarius at mid-century. since it will crystallize the energies of that Jupiter/Pluto conjunction. And even though we will see radical Aquarian developments after that, it will be the 23rd century before the last dregs of the Age of Pisces is dead and gone since echoes persist in collective memory for many years.
We are evolving toward a new view of Life, interrelatedness, and a view that no part of life on Earth is separate from any other part of life on Earth. We are all part of one life. When we understand that, we find our part in the larger harmony of life where we all contribute our unique part to create a whole which is greater than we imagined. Aquarius is unifying, like Air. It is collective, idealistic, and seeks the greater good for the whole. The only flaws are in the image and execution. If the greatest good is clear, and the means of managing energy is clear, then greater things are possible than is currently imagined.
Of course, humans being human, there are some factors which will remain across the centuries. Given that the purpose of life on Earth is to train the ego mind to serve the Higher Self, I'm not sure that ego will ever be truly gone, since it seems it's part of our evolutionary curriculum. But hopefully, all our little ego minds will learn to cooperate to bring forth the greatest good for the greatest number, since when all of us prosper, each of us prospers.
Some asked me that if the twin fishes is the symbol for the Age of Pisces, what might be a fitting symbol for the Age of Aquarius? I offered that the glyph for Aquarius seems perfect, as it is parallel "wavy lines." If the "Aquarian Age" corresponds to the ascending Dwapara Yuga, the "Era of Electromagnetic Remembrance," then perhaps the wavy lines are emblematic of electricity, plasma, transmissible currents, and all the other dynamic "unseen things" being revealed as the centuries progress. They are "the waves of the water bearer."
We are headed for a less materialistic world. The Grand Mutation of 2020 ended 200 years of material focus, and began 200 years of focus on shared collective ideals which serve the greatest good for the greatest number. Still, with the powerful Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn in play for the next 20 years, the old systems will still be with us for a while.
This includes the concept of money. Some believe crypto currencies are the sign of the emerging Aquarian financial model, but I believe the old money system will be with us a while, and barter has been going on since the beginning of time. All money is an agreement that the thing we call money has a relative worth. Cryptos are the same. Just an agreement. But that agreement depends on the internet and electricity.
Yes, it's an abstraction just like "money," but it's still the same old model, where you trust someone to hold your thing of worth until you want the cash out. I have found it's always easier to get in than get out when someone else is the gatekeeper for my money. That makes cryptos another Capricorn model.
What I see is that because the focus is away from personal power and profit and moving toward a greater good, it would seem that the emerging Aquarian model will not allow investment bankers to be unregulated parasites. Same with cryptos, which are subject to massive ripoffs and generate massive pollution. Perhaps given the view of interrelatedness, we may see more “environmental pollution” fees.
In our personal lives and charts, the Capricorn and Aquarian conjunctions dominating the next decades all fell between 23 Capricorn and 1 Aquarius. We all have Capricorn duties to fulfill, as well as Aquarius initiatives. These are shown by where those conjunctions fell in our charts. While Capricorn shows us where we're training to take responsibility, Aquarius is the sector where we see a greater vision in our lives, or seek out an ideal view of the greater good. That will be the individual focus in the future.
All of us with any planets in Aquarius have been matured these past two and a half years, with new understanding of our ability to push the limits of the “Ring Pass Not” into a broader view of our purpose related to those planets. As Aquarius is ruled by Saturn in the visible world, we all had to learn the value of discipline, patience, organization, patience, taking responsibility, patience, reasonable boundaries, and did I mention patience? This was happening where we have late Capricorn and early Aquarius in our charts, whether there's a planet there or not.
This will be the source of transformational power if we accept the challenge to become the living seeds of the future while Pluto transits Aquarius. Allow yourself to tap your deepest power to eliminate all which is lesser. Aquarius is the vision. The doors began to open in 2020, and have expanded in scope since then. This is the beginning of the next phase in the global transformational process. But it's the first point of contact, with more to come in 2024, preparing us to turn a corner as a world and humanity in 2025. Welcome to the first dawning of the Spring of the 21st century!
