Is Pluto to blame for the volatile energy in the world? 

Astrologists seem to think so.

Local New Hampshire astrologist Dorothy Morgan said Pluto is currently cosmically dancing  with Aquarius, and has been since Jan. 20.

That’s significant because Pluto is very slow moving. The last time Pluto was in Aquarius, between 1777 and 1798, marked a significant era of global transformation and turmoil. Need evidence? Just look at how the American Revolution unfolded during that time, and remember that Thomas Jefferson was drafting the U.S. Constitution.

“You can see the state of our nation, it’s divided,” Morgan said. “We’re in the same place now.” 

Morgan is a master astrologist, and has been teaching the profession for close to 30 years. She was treasurer of the Seacoast Astrological Association in New Hampshire in the 1990s and president from 2015-2020. She is currently a teacher, writer, and vlogger, offering classes on her website.  

Morgan said Pluto is one of the most intense planets in astrology, representing growth and evolution. As Pluto moves into the air sign of Aquarius, people may feel inspired to see  change, both individually and on a global scale. 

“Some of the foundation of the country is being challenged at this point of time,” Morgan said.  “We’re going to be seeing this for the next 20 years. We’re making a shift from old processes and ways of doing things. What comes to the front are freedoms, independence, technology, power, and upheaval in dynamics.” 

Why is Pluto in Aquarius significant?

Pluto, representing growth, finds a powerful ally in Aquarius, a sign renowned for embracing change fearlessly. Together, they form a formidable duo, with Aquarius’ openness to change complementing Pluto’s transformative influence.

The Impact of Pluto’s Dance with Aquarius

 Pluto will be in Aquarius until Sept. 1. Pluto will then move back to Capricorn from Sept. 1 to Nov. 19. After that, Pluto will stay in Aquarius until 2044. The retrograde to Capricorn may make change feel unstable. We’ll want to revisit the old way of doing things.

“It’s like somebody’s kicked the bee’s nest and they are just flying around trying to protect the queen and they’re not sure what to do yet. And that’s where we’re at,” Morgan said.

“The old paradigm, the old patriarchal system and shifting into what is newer, more humanitarian, more inclusive. But the old system and peoples’ train of thought is not on board with that, so there’s a lot of fighting about that. That’s Pluto moving into Aquarius, really disrupting our nation.”
