Artificial intelligence, chatbots and communal living? Time to see things like these as the “new normal.”

Life feels stranger than sci-fi as seismic Pluto enters Aquarius on January 20 (until September 1, 2024) for the second time since 1798 (it was briefly here from March 23 to June 11, 2023).

Since the icy dwarf makes lengthy stays in each zodiac sign, these periods indelibly shape history. Pluto darts into back into Capricorn on September 1, but come November 19, settles into Aquarius for a 20-year run, staying until January 19, 2044!

What’s Happening with Pluto in 2024?

Here’s what’s shaping your Pluto in Aquarius horoscope

The cosmic ruler of death and rebirth changed zodiac signs on March 23, 2023, for the first time since 2008. Pluto’s weave back and forth between iron-fisted, hierarchical Capricorn and innovative, community-focused Aquarius, has shown us how it will shake up one system after another when it moves in for a few decades on November 19, 2024.

What skeletons are rattling in the closet? Where do we go “unconscious” and unable to see our role in a crisis? As the cosmic ruler of the underworld, Pluto’s impulse is to conceal. Projection is one of this planet’s favorite defense mechanisms. Whenever and wherever you’re pointing the finger, Pluto is probably at play.

Because of its distance from the Sun, Pluto has a long, inconsistent orbit, taking approximately 248 years to make one full journey around el Sol. That’s why Pluto hovers in a single sign for 12-21 years. As a result, it is one of the planets that shapes generational trends. Pluto can be a destroyer, tearing down what is begging to evolve, forcing us to rebuild from the ashes.

Great innovations have been born during these cycles. But they are generally accompanied by grief, crisis and loss as we release the outmoded past. Pluto’s extended cycles often begin with a massive, headline-generating event, but end with breakthroughs that transform an entire industry. Wealth may change hands as a result, resonant with Pluto’s penchant for power plays.

On a personal level we can expect transformations to occur within our friendships and communities. Aquarius is the “one love” sign that wants peace and unity. But Pluto destroys everything that is ready to be alchemized into a new form.

For some folks, Pluto in Aquarius may call you into activism or awaken your leadership within the communities you dwell. We’ll all have to work together in new ways now. Farewell “rugged individualism,” hello “soul squads.”

This is Pluto’s foray out of Capricorn and your intense, intimate eighth house since January 2008. The eighth house reigns over intense and classified matters—its dominion includes shadow work, sex, death, financial windfalls, reproduction, marriage and divorce, secrets and scandals. Not exactly light fare, and you’ve been through it, Gemini. That’s why we’re thrilled to report that the next chapter of your life looks SO much brighter and, frankly, easier.

Pluto makes its second return to Aquarius in nearly 250 years, a three-month sneak preview that begins January 20 and will last until September 1. Repeat after us, Cancer: Your intuition is your friend! Don’t believe it yet? You’ll have a long (as in 20 years long) period to adapt to this truth beginning November 19.

Since January 2008, Pluto’s been in Capricorn and your seventh house of committed partnerships. From business alliances to romantic pairings, your interpersonal affairs department has been a place of deep soul transformation. Now Pluto’s plunge into the eighth house of merging takes things to an even deeper level, if you can believe that.

This intimate zodiac zone rules a wide swath of issues: birth, death, marriage, divorce, property, shared finances, wealth, emotional and spiritual healing, sex and secrets, to name a few. Over this upcoming two-decade transit, we’ll all experience major life moments. For your Pluto in Aquarius horoscope, however, these moments will be deeply transformative. You may be called upon as a healing force or a spiritual guide for others.

Pluto is in Aquarius for the long haul from November 19, 2024, to January 19, 2044. But between now and September 1, you’ll get a taste of what the next two decades will hold—and it’s looking like a deep inner revolution.

Leo (July 23-August 22) Pluto in Aquarius horoscope

Relationship school is in session, and this curriculum is even longer than a K-12 stretch! On January 20, transformational Pluto moves into Aquarius until September 1—the second sneak peek of a longer visit that will last from November 2024 to January 2044.

During the next nearly nine months, you’ll become keenly aware of subtle relationship dynamics as well as how the people around you might be mirroring different parts of yourself. If you keep attracting the “same” troubling person or dynamic, Pluto will help you unearth how they’re a vibrational match for an unhealed part of yourself. Rather than shun the messenger, look at everyone in your life as a helpful guide, pointing the way to where you can grow.

Since January 2008, Pluto’s been in Capricorn and your sixth house of health, organization and helpful people. You’ve been learning powerful (and sometimes painful) lessons about micromanaging and delegating, as well as managing your own energy levels.

Virgo (August 23-September 22) Pluto in Aquarius horoscope

From January 20 to September 1, 2024, Pluto makes a pit stop in your sixth house of wellness, work and organization before returning for 20 whole years from November 19, 2024, to January 19, 2044. Virgo, you’re the native ruler of the zodiac’s sixth house, so having transformational Pluto here for such a long run will be an up-close look in the mirror—deeply uncomfortable at times.

Pluto in Aquarius will reveal the depths of your unconscious urges. As the zodiac’s perfectionist, you work hard to mask your flaws, except when YOU take control and share about them yourself. But Pluto will pry loose your grip on all the addictions, coping mechanisms and unhealthy ways you try to hide the fact that you’re a mere mortal, as confused and adrift as the rest of us.

Sexy though it’s not, regenerative Pluto in this zone points you to focus on your digestive health. In recent years, gut health has become one of the most important areas of wellness. The gut, which is the body part ruled by Virgo, has been called the “second brain.” (Is this why Virgos are so smart?)

From balancing your microbiome to adding more fiber to your plate, there’s a range of options to explore with your healthcare provider. Beyond that, secretive Pluto unveils any mind-body connections that can manifest in your well-being. Pluto’s in Aquarius for essentially 20 years now could lead to some profound lifestyle shifts. Scratching the surface won’t cut it with this deep-diving planet. Your Pluto in Aquarius horoscope calls for you to dig deeper than mere symptoms for total wellness!

Libra (September 23-October 22) Pluto in Aquarius horoscope

Alchemist Pluto settles into Aquarius for another test run from January 20 to September 1, 2024. Kind of a big deal? Better believe it! For the next almost nine months, you’ll get another peek at what the next two decades of your life hold when Pluto returns to Aquarius from November 19, 2024, to January 19, 2044, for a 20-year stretch! (The first preview was from March 23 to June 11, 2023.)

Pluto’s new position brings relief after a heavy and soul-transforming cycle that you’ve been dealing with for the last 15 years. Since January 2008, the planet of secrets and soul-level transformation has been weaving through your fourth house of home and family, bringing so much to the surface.

There’s a silver lining to any turbulence you weathered. Your inner “shadow work” has gotten you ready for Pluto’s upcoming two decades in Aquarius as the potent planet visits your fifth house of love, creativity and self-expression. You’re emerging from Pluto’s cradle as a truly centered AND sentient being.

Since this next cycle will be more public than private, the lesson you’ve learned could become part of what you share with others. Your Pluto in Aquarius horoscope might very well start with a twin-flame attraction. Or you could advance to a higher octave with your person. Expect even the sweetest of Pluto’s offerings to come packaged with deep soul growth. Your inner growth could lead you to a serious soulmate, someone who embraces all of you, including your history and your traumas. Or you could reach a profound level of fulfillment with your current love interest. Love, creativity and success—it’s all there for you in 2024.

Scorpio (October 23-November 21) Pluto in Aquarius horoscope

Your ruling planet, Pluto, changes zodiac signs for a second time in 15 years, on January 20. With the exception of a preview from March 23 to June 11, 2023, since January 2008, Pluto’s been in Capricorn and your third house of communication. From friendships to negotiations, mindset to messaging, you’ve learned deep lessons on being impactful and impeccable with your words.

On November 19, 2024, Pluto embarks on a 20-year plunge through Aquarius and your domestic fourth house, bringing its transformational touch close to home. Ready for this next sneak preview of this two-decade transit?

Starting January 20, you may get the sudden urge to explore your roots, work through intergenerational patterns or unravel a family mystery. Does your home feel like less of a haven than it could? Pluto is all about exploring the hidden forces and invisible energies. Consider a space clearing or Feng Shui to unblock the energetic flow of health, wealth and happiness. Even moving furniture into a new configuration or boxing up old relics that keep you emotionally stuck in the past can be helpful.

Your relationship with your mother, a child or a powerful woman could figure into events. Where could you both benefit from forgiveness or a healthy dose of detachment? The ties that bind could have gotten constricting, and regenerative Pluto will spotlight codependent and addictive patterns that need healing from the ground up.

With your cosmic custodian in Aquarius for essentially 20 years beginning November 19, your ruling planet, Pluto, wants you to work with hidden forces and transmute pain into strength. Maximize the opportunity and power that 2024 has in store. Get your Scorpio Horoscope bundle at 70% off—plus an extra 17% for a limited time!

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) Pluto in Aquarius horoscope

Financial relief: incoming! The stars serve up an economic stimulus plan on January 20 when transformational Pluto takes another break from Capricorn and your money zone, where it’s spent the past 15 years, with the exception of a sneak peek from March 23 to June 11, 2023. The 20-year transit starts in earnest on November 19, 2024, when Pluto settles into Aquarius for two full decades!

Between now and September 1, Pluto briefly visits Aquarius and your third house of communication, giving your message some gravitas. If you find yourself suddenly called to write, speak, teach or make media appearances, consider this a taste of what’s to come. Your voice will become an instrument of power (more than it already is). Will you use it to sow negativity and fear or to help people transform into their highest mindset? We’re hoping you’ll choose the latter, of course, but that might take some inner “shadow work” to reckon with your own blocks first.

Regenerative Pluto will send you to the depths, revealing what’s been hidden. Since the third house rules siblings, neighbors and colleagues, you may start to notice things in your interactions that never bothered you before. Mirror, mirror? Don’t shun the messenger if a co-worker or your sister pushes your buttons. Instead, take this as an invitation to ask WHY they’re triggering you and to locate what needs to be healed within yourself.

Enlightened types say that money is energy and that the balance in your bank account is a reflection of how much abundance your soul can handle. If that’s true, then Pluto in Capricorn sent you on a mission to wrestle your demons and face your fears around scarcity and survival. You’ll still have to complete this spiritual assignment until November. But a little break from the intensity will be welcome!

More than ever, with this Pluto position, you can use your voice as a powerful tool—one that creates meaningful transformation in your life and the lives of others. Live your best life and make the most of every moment in 2024. Get your Sagittarius Horoscope bundle at 70% off—plus an extra 17% for a limited time!

Capricorn (December 22-January 19) Pluto in Aquarius horoscope

Farewell, intensity—at least for a moment. From January 20 to September 1, intense Pluto makes a short second visit to Aquarius, bringing power and transformation to your money sector. (The first visit was from March 23 to June 11, 2023.)

The real news of your Pluto in Aquarius horoscope, however, is that Pluto’s moving out of Capricorn, where it’s been inciting a deep, slow transformation to your identity since January 2008. The question “Who am I?” may have been top of mind for the past 15 years—a period of soul-searching where you lost and found yourself again many times over.

Some of Pluto’s changes seemed subtle while they were happening while others were profound moments when you had to look deep inside yourself and question your own motives, if not your entire existence! During this time, you were given a choice: step into your strength and use it to be a positive influence, or plunge into the shadows of fear, manipulation and power dynamics. If you’ve gotten a little too entrenched in your identity or lifestyle, it’s time to mix it up again. Rather than ask “Who am I?” Pluto in Aquarius challenges you to inquire: “What do I stand for?”

Between now and September 1, Pluto in Aquarius begins to push you to examine your values, priorities and day-to-day habits. How you make a living also becomes central. Aquarius also rules your second house of work and money. Are your goals (and roles) aligned with your soul?

Pluto makes its final exit from your sign on November 19, 2024, never to return again in your lifetime (it was last in Capricorn from 1762 to 1778, for some context). It spends 20 years in Aquarius, a two-decade cycle that could reinvent how you earn an income, build security, value and provide for yourself. The stars have so much happiness in store for you in 2024. Get your Capricorn Horoscope bundle at 70% off—plus an extra 17% for a limited time!

Aquarius (January 20-February 18) Pluto in Aquarius horoscope

Thought you were out of the astrological hot seat? Not so fast! Powerhouse Pluto moves into Aquarius from January 20 until September 1. This is a second sneak peek at a 20-year cycle that spans from November 2024 until January 2044 (the first was March 23 to June 11, 2023.)

This is a nearly nine-month taste of what that life will look like when Pluto leaves Capricorn and your twelfth house of healing, spirituality and surrender, completing a cycle that began back in January 2008.

Not everyone experiences Pluto in their zodiac sign, since it takes about 250 years to return to each sign. What revolutions are happening for YOU? Slowly but indelibly, Pluto sets off a deep, inside-out transformation. You may change your appearance, the way you speak and dress—maybe even your name!

While this chapter of your life is bound to be intense, you’ll also breathe a sigh of relief now that Pluto is finally out of your subliminal twelfth house. The last 15 years brought plenty of plot twists, and now you can take all the spiritual growth and off-the-radar work you’ve accomplished and make a more public splash! Over the next two decades, you could alter your appearance, your body language, your fashion style…maybe even your name! 2024 is your year of reinvention and the stars have a specific plan in mind.

Pisces (February 19-March 20) Pluto in Aquarius horoscope

Transformational Pluto slips out of Capricorn and makes its first foray into Aquarius since 1798, plunging into your twelfth house of spirituality, the unconscious and the imagination, on January 20. This is another brief, preview tour (the first was from March 23 to June 11, 2023). Pluto stays until September 1, then settles in on November 19 for a 20-year run, staying through 2044.

As the twelfth and final sign, you’re the native ruler of the zodiac’s twelfth house, so this is familiar terrain. However, Pluto’s intense presence sharpens your psychic radar and heighten your natural empathic abilities. You’ll be hyper-attuned to the energies around you, possibly even channeling spirits in your midst. It will be crucial to “shield your field” to avoid getting sucked into other people’s issues—a tendency you already have.

With Pluto in your twelfth house, the saying “as within, so without” will show up in large-print messaging. Your main job is to keep your own spiritual side of the street tidy. If you need to forgive someone for the sake of your own mental and emotional freedom, Pluto will guide you through the process. This is the planet of “shadow work,” so it won’t be a fast or easy process. But as you shed layers, you’ll realize how much weight you’ve been carrying.

Your Pluto in Aquarius horoscope gives you a choice: stay stuck in the lowlands of your own psyche and soul by holding onto anger, resentment, guilt and blame, or get support to work through it and find healthy management tools. You’ll gain power choosing the latter, freeing yourself to use your powerful artistic or healing gifts to transform others. Be extra discerning about who you let into your inner circle from here forward. Once they’re in, it will be hard to get ‘em out!

As you undergo this internal transformation, shedding skin like a snake, you’ll discover how much you were holding onto that wasn’t serving you. As Pluto plumbs the depths of Aquarius for basically 20 years, you’re entering a cycle where art, spirituality and healing work will take precedence over most everything else. Find your flow and embrace all the new energy coming your way. Get your Pisces 2024 Horoscope bundle at 70% off—plus an extra 17% off at checkout.
