All Signs

What does the movie Barbie have to do with the autoworkers strike? Both are early clues about Pluto's return to Aquarius next year (to stay until 2043). This year is a sneak preview of coming attractions because Pluto was in Aquarius for three months -- stirring up transformative energy about collective rights. (What we see now is the tip of the iceberg for the next 20 years.) The last time Pluto was in Aquarius was 1778-1798, when the citizens of Paris, desperate from poverty and the disparity between the poor and the very rich revolted and Marie Antoinette and King Louis XVI were beheaded. Pluto is about destruction and rebirth. For the last 15 years, Pluto was in Capricorn (governments, status and political correctness). Pluto in Aquarius will also bring mind-blowing technological advances. ChatGPT? Ha! Wait for "hologram TV" right in your living-room.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

In the next two decades, as Pluto moves through your 11th House, you will change your long-term goals. The goals you have now will no longer have the same promise. You will start to expect a different future for yourself. As a further extension of this shift (which will be slow), you will start to change the friends and groups you see. The people that you used to hang out with will begin to lose their appeal. This is because as you start to change your long-term goals and what you expect for yourself -- likewise, you will seek out different kinds of friendships. You might meet a new friend who is a strong influence.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Pluto moves slowly. It takes 250 years to go through all 12 signs. In the next 20 years, it will slowly cross the top of your chart, which means you will start to work harder to achieve more because you want to make your mark on the world. You want to be the best you can be! If you know where you're headed, your success will come sooner. Either way, you will change direction until you find something that you want to embrace. Be careful about bending rules and ethics to get your way. (You won't win.) Instead, be wise and take as much time as you need to find the right direction for you. Someone might help you do this. Naturally, this will change you.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

You're a curious person, which is why you love to learn new things. In the next 20 years, you will flourish as Pluto travels through your Ninth House, transforming your beliefs and how you see the world. Take your time. No hurry! Expect to slowly gain new knowledge, new interests, especially in profound subjects, as you meet people from different backgrounds. Religion or politics will take on a new meaning for you. You might be involved with a group or movement that wants to transform society. No need to be a rebel. You will do this slowly by working with others. Mystical and occult philosophies will also attract you. So much to discover!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

In the next 20 years, circumstances around you might prompt your interest about death and dying. You might want to understand more about this process. You might help others go through this experience. You will explore deep and profound ideas because for your sign, Pluto is going through its own "home" during this time. You will also undergo major changes that affect you in a practical way in terms of shared property, money from the government, inheritances and jointly-held resources. You will see the value of your own independence and appreciate being self-sufficient - in other words -- being able to call your own shots.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

For the next 20 years, Pluto will be opposite your sign. The only Leos that have lived through this experience lived back in the 1700s. (Oh yes, this is a new movie!) Basically, you will experience major changes and shifts to your partnerships - both personal and professional partners. The changes that happen will profoundly affect you. You might feel the need to redefine a partnership. You might meet someone new who completely transforms your world? Admittedly, shaky or unhappy partnerships will be at risk. To stay happy, try to avoid power struggles (especially with enemies) during this time because they could be nasty and destructive. The ultimate aim of Pluto is always to improve things and get a better result.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Pluto will travel through your 6th House in the next 20 years transforming your job, your health and even your relationship to pets. Because Pluto is the planet of "regeneration", this is a great opportunity to dramatically improve your health. However, do not over strain yourself. Be kind to yourself. (Pluto tends to break things down before it builds them up again.) But if you adopt new healthy regimes about exercise and food, you can regenerate yourself to an amazing degree! Meanwhile, many of you might change your job to improve things or tear things down in order to rebuild them. Or you might explore regenerative therapies whether they are physical or psychological. A powerful new direction is possible.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

For the next several decades, Pluto will travel through a part of your chart associated with the arts, fun, pleasure and sports. All forms of creativity, especially children. This means parents will have a powerful opportunity to improve their relationships with their kids. However, be careful about being pushy. Avoid power struggles. Meanwhile, this part of your chart also embraces romance. Many of you will meet someone who completely transforms your world. The relationship will be intense, passionate and feel like it was written in the stars. "Meant to be." (Pluto is like that - intense and overdramatic.) Explore any means of self-expression because this will be rewarding for you.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

In the coming years, as Pluto travels across the bottom of your chart for the first time in your life, you want change at the most fundamental levels. You want to change things where you live. You want to get rid of what doesn't work, especially if it's too old or in disrepair. You want to take charge of your residence and make repairs or do remodelling and fix up things so that you feel happy about where you live. By extension, you might do this to family relationships, especially with your parents. For some, this could create power struggles, especially if parents try to keep things as they were. But for you, a new order is going to begin, and it's starting at home. Expect to purge what you no longer need, and repair what you choose to keep.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

The years ahead will fascinate you because your everyday contacts and everyday communications and conversations will become more profound. Aspects of your everyday life that you took for granted - times with neighbours, relatives, business contacts might become hugely significant! Basically, this is because you yourself are undergoing some internal changes. You're going to start to see your everyday world with new eyes. You might even examine your everyday beliefs and the ideas you have. Because you are a truth-seeker, you will not settle for superficial explanations. Some of these changes within you will be triggered by travel (even short trips) that somehow have far-reaching effects on your life.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

The next few decades will be powerful for you because your own value system will undergo a complete change, perhaps a metamorphosis. You will start to question things that you value regarding status, respect and material success. Something will happen that makes you rethink your values, especially towards property and your material possessions. Some of you will change jobs and develop a new source of income possibly related to medicine, criminology, police work, detection, gems and jewelry, plumbing and psychology, especially hospice work and end-of-life transitions. You might also explore renovations and redoing things to earn money. The scope is wide.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Pluto will be in your sign for the next 20 years, which is something no one alive has ever experienced because the last time Pluto was in Aquarius was 250 years ago. This will bring about changes in your appearance. It will almost certainly make you get in touch with deeper aspects of yourself. Admittedly, you might become a bit of a control freak, so watch out for that. As you undergo these changes, you might want to change everyone around you. You will also be attracted to the mysteries and hidden aspects of life, and possibly you will explore astrology, yoga or other spiritual disciplines that deal with regeneration of the self. It's all pretty trippy.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Pluto has domain over everything hidden - like gemstones, hidden in the earth. Corporal bodies are "hidden" beneath skin, fur or feathers. Plumbing is "hidden" beneath the streets and in the walls of our homes and bathrooms. (Even the word toilet is impolite dinner conversation.) In the next few decades, hidden aspects of your psyche will be revealed to you. You will be on your own personal journey of discovering your truth. This will be empowering because the hidden aspects of ourselves (of which we are unaware) have control over us. But once we identify something and expose it to the bright light of discovery - we're free!
