Hello my lovely friends:
If you’ve been in the flow lately; you know there have been big changes with the shift of Pluto from Capricorn to Aquarius. This is a decades long transit. It takes several months for Pluto to get settled into Aquarius, so Pluto is temporarily in Aquarius at 0 degree, for now. This June, Pluto will return back to Capricorn until January 20,2024. Then be in Aquarius to September 1, 2024 before returning to Capricorn. Finally, from November 19, 2024, and after, Pluto will be settled in Aquarius until March 8, 2043.
As you can see. It’s not an “overnight” transit. In fact, no transits really are. There are some aspects that last a day or two in astrology and those are shorter lived events. Also the moon is void of course often for only part of a day. The moon changes signs approximately every 2.5 days, so those astrological influences are constantly changing. This is a lot like weather. In fact, I think astrology is basically like forecasting weather: looking at trends vs. certainties. Finally, if self-determination is your thing, I would definitely agree with you that self-determination takes priority over the influences of the cosmic weather. I do believe we are each responsible for making and co-creating our own reality. I favor the idea of co-creation, since I think we are always partnered with the universe and nature when we are crafting the trajectory of our lives.
It’s nice to take note of what is taking place from an astrological/astronomical perspective.
April & May Events
- 19/20 Solar eclipse at 29 Aries (the unusual second “new moon” in Aries)
- April 21 – Mercury retrograde in Taurus at 15 degrees
- May 1 — Pluto goes retrograde at 0 Aquarius
- May 5– Lunar eclipse at 15 degree Scorpio
- May 14– Mercury stations direct at 6 degree Taurus
- May 16– Jupiter ingress Taurus
As you can see the above trends are changes taking place in the fixed signs. This can be ground-breaking in getting us out of our ruts and creating avenues of movement in our lives where we weren’t able to previously budge. The fixed cross of Aquarius, Leo, Taurus and Scorpio is being activated. Areas in need of renewal are around values and shared resources (Taurus and Scorpio) and self and community (Leo and Aquarius).
What themes have you noticed are activated for you right now? Have you found that some of your systems are getting changed or switched? Does the structure of your life look like it’s changing? If you saw yourself on a bridge and crossing it to the other side, what do you think you would visit on the other side? Look at these images below and comment on anything that arises. Are you alone or following someone else? Are you in a city or in a remote location?

Thanks for this simple explanation of Pluto’s exit map. Oh yes, I have found the planets spinning for the last few months. Something’s gotta give inevitably. Hugs ❤
Hi Debbie! Wowsers! You’re welcome (re: Pluto). We’ve really just passed through a major eclipse portal! That was the last one in the series of Taurus/Scorpio for a little while! It brought me right back to 2004–the last time the nodes were transiting Taurus/Scorpio with N. Node in Taurus! Hugs right back 🙂 I haven’t been blogging for a while, but hope to get back to it.
Thank you Ka. Understatement about major eclipse. For two days I felt the earth rumbling! 🙂
we are always partnered with the universe and nature when we are crafting the trajectory of our lives – I agree with you on this, it is such an exquisite collaboration of our awareness with the universe. I loved reading your post and finding a basis for why the world around me feels changed in entirety, the shifts are big indeed. I think I am walking down the bridge assuredly and yet absolutely not knowing anything beyond the next step or not willing to picture what is on the otehr side. The present moment takes up all my attention for the newness it is. Much Love my friend!
As I look at these photos, I am reminded of how stunning Mother Nature is ~ And how we must stop and appreciate the vastness of what she provides us. You talk about a shift earlier,,, and I feel it.
