Pluto Stationary

May 2, 2024:  Pluto Stationary, turning Retrograde, at Aquarius 2°06, 1:46 pm EDT.


Pluto, symbol of death, transformation, and birth, is associated with destructive forces that obliterate an old way of being to make way for something new. This is a violent force, even more terrifying because of the impersonality of its expression. Pluto stations are often accompanied by collective events that are explosive in their nature and thereby initiate change. This station is part of the transition of Pluto from Capricorn to Aquarius.


In Roman myth, Pluto was the Lord of the Underworld. Pluto’s realm was the place deceased souls went to reside. This was a realm of darkness and shadows through which the dead wandered aimlessly for eternity.


In Shamanic Egyptian Astrology, Pluto is allied with Osiris, the Lord of Regeneration. Osiris was murdered by his brother Set and brought back to life by his consort, Isis, long enough for them to mate. The result of their union was a son – Horus (Jupiter), the New King. Central to the myth of Osiris is the idea that all death is followed by new life. There is loss, grief, and pain in the story of Osiris and there is also hope for the birth of a New Aeon.


In 2023, Pluto moved briefly into Aquarius from mid-March to mid-June. Pluto re-entered Aquarius in January of this year and will retrograde back into Capricorn for a final time from September 1 to November 19. Pluto will remain in Aquarius – the sign associated with our own New Aeon - for the next 20 years. The movement of Pluto through Capricorn (2008 to now) has corresponded to the dismantling of the existing structure of society.


It is worth noting that the US Presidential election will take place during Pluto’s final retrograde in Capricorn. This final visit to Capricorn will be particularly important.
