Pluto in Aquarius will be in your 11th house and indicates a shift around friends or social groups you belong to, both personal or professional. You could find yourself wanting to create new or different connections that more authentically reflect your way of thinking, ideas, ideals and support your hopes and dreams for the future, including career goals. Some connections may end and new ones begin, or existing ones change into a new form.
Pluto will be going through your 10th house, bringing change in your career, work, reputation or other activities you do that are publicly oriented. If this part of life hasn’t felt authentic or empowering, this transit may raise those issues and give you the impetus to seek out changes to correct that. You may feel called to finally do the work you’ve always felt called to do. A change of career or position might be on the horizon, or the discovery or development of a skill that brings you into a new sense of authenticity or agency regarding work. Authority figures or power dynamics in general at work may also be a feature to watch out for.
Exploring and changing spirituality, wisdom or knowledge pathways may be key themes for you as Pluto will be in your 9th house. This could include learning something new, altering your beliefs or the way you engage with learning, or how engage socially to attain that. Matters connected to foreign lands or people, or long distant journeys could bring shifts for you, for example taking a trip that has a profound impact, moving abroad, or engagement with people from other cultures or countries.
With Cancer on the ascendent Pluto is placed in the 8th house, bringing changes around finances and resources of other people, or contracts, whether that be partners money, government money, or business finances, and how these influences your own life, or your dependency on those. How do you feel empowered in relation to these financial circumstance?
The theme of mortality and related topics such as inheritance or wills are also features of this house. There can often be fear or anxiety around these, so this might be something that needs to be explored and managed so you can move on in a way that’s healthy and unburdening.
Pluto will occupy your 7th house, suggesting transformations to your partnerships, whether romantic or business. This could be the ending of an existing relationship or the beginning of a new one. Alternatively you may feel called to look more deeply at an existing relationship or relationship patterns,, and take steps to change unhealthy issues, for example lack of agency or unresolved hurts. You may feel an impetus to look at the existing situation and how you want that to progress or change into something better.
Pluto traversing your 6th house could bring important changes regarding health and wellness. Where might you have been neglecting yourself or struggling in this area of life? Or perhaps someone in your immediate circle has health related concerns which impact you. It could require some hard work to change things and find improvements, but will be worth it in the long run.
If you are in situations where you feel marginalised, oppressed or without a voice, Pluto in Aquarius may inspire you to seek out solutions to attain a greater sense of justice and equality. This may involve the work area of life, or situations where you feel in service to others.
This is also the house of animals and pets, so there could be some changes for you, or around you, relating to this topic if you have pets or an interest in animals in some way.
As Aquarius is on your 5th house expect to explore and uncover alternate ways of engaging with enjoyment, pleasure, hobbies, or sex. Do you have any habits that need changing so you have a healthier relationship with these, or that give you more fulfilment aligned with who you are and what you need? Are you in control of this part of your life, or does it control you?
If you have children in your life, whether that’s your own or other people’s, they may be experiencing profound shifts that you are witness to or involved with.
For Scorpio rising, Pluto will be in your 4th house which can often indicate significant changes to your living situation, home and family dynamics, for example moving to a new home, sale or acquisition of land, or new additions to the family. Themes of parents and ancestry could be highlighted. This could include how those may give rise to unproductive or unhealthy unconscious patterns and influences that have hitherto been unresolved and now need addressing.
You may feel drawn to finding new or better everyday routines, or interactions with local community such as neighbours as Pluto goes through your 3rd house. Relationships within these communities, as well as to siblings and extended family might shift as you seek alignments based on your true values and ideals. New connections might form or old ones dissipate.
Your perspective, thinking, ideas and how you express and communicate those might metamorphose, stimulated by new explorations of your own mind, or new ideas from a wider social sphere. This could involve new patterns of learning, doing research, or identifying and developing new communication skills which may also support this.
There is also a spiritual or religious component to this house, so you could find yourself seeking to go deep into those topics and shift the way you engage with them on a day-to-day basis.
The 2nd house representing the financial part of your life may feel the influence of Pluto’s presence. How you sustain yourself in the world in terms of material resources, and your relationship to those things, could undergo a significant change. This could of course may be influenced by whatever is happening in the world of work or career for you. As Pluto can signify wealth as well, you could find yourself coming into more money, or needing to feel a sense of greater autonomy about resources. The way you approach finances and your relationship to money could change. What do you desire here, what are your ideals around resources, and how does money feed into your sense of self-sufficiency could be questions that arise for exploration.
Wth Pluto spending time in the your 1st house, who you are going into this transit may not be the same as who you are coming out of it. Your identity, character or body, and how you think about and perceive yourself may undergo a profound change during the course of Pluto moving through your first house. A significant periods is likely to be when Pluto conjuncts the Ascendant.
Embrace the urge to bring forth parts of yourself that you have previously hidden for whatever reason, or to explore a side of you that has been suppressed. These changes could be expressed as a transformation of your appearance or habits, or uncovering new skills and abilities you never realised you had. Inner thoughts, feelings or emotions that might be tied to old wounds or feelings of alienation or other unresolved issues will need to be healed for a healthy transformation to take place. In doing so you are likely to ultimately feel like a new person.
Being in the 12th house, Pluto may call you to work with and transmute that in life which causes anxiety, hardship or makes you lose your sense of self, or if other’s around you experience this. On a personal level, are there any counterproductive beliefs, patterns or behaviours that control you and take you away from being your true whole and healthy self?
Similarly to the 6th house, Pluto in the 12th may raise issues around health and wellness, but related to the mental realm, or places we go to for recovery such as hospitals or retreats.
Alternatively you may find that this period calls for a time of immersion into topics related to seclusion, isolation or hidden realms of life. You may find yourself wanting or needing to retreat, spend more time alone, or operate more behind the scenes.
