Pluto is the Lord of the Underworld: the One who swallows, destroys, and births again. Planetary throne of great seismic shifts in our collective psyche, Pluto is a generational planet that takes between 13 to 20 years to transit through one sign.
Thus, Pluto’s transits describe the zeitgeist of a period of time.
Pluto in Aquarius teaches us to shed the skin of all that has grown too drab, too tight, and too limiting of our expansion. We are composted and reformed, more fully ourselves, more confident our belonging.
On a personal level, Pluto’s placement in one’s natal chart describes the deepest, most potent transformations one can go through in this lifetime. You’re born the first time on your birthday, but Pluto speaks to the ways in which you will be reborn as you (and if you) fulfill your evolutionary purpose.
Your purpose, of course, is to listen to your deep desire, the pulse of life yearning inside you, directing you towards its fulfillment.
By evolution, I don’t mean YOUR evolution. I mean the way in which you participate in the unfolding song of life here on earth.
Pluto teaches you your calling, which is a guide, and inner compass, directing you in how to offer the fulfillment of your deepest longings to the world as fuel.
On a practical level this means Pluto helps us understand how as individuals, and as a collective, we can integrate the changes at work in our lives, and in the world, in service of the life force itself.
Pluto In Aquarius
The last time Pluto was in Aquarius was during the French Revolution, truly, I wouldn’t be surprised if we see a similar “kerfuffle” now. Pluto’s transits through a sign are long, so we’ll really have the time to see some seismic transformations.
Here are some things you should know.
PLUTO IS IN AQUARIUS from March 23 to June 11, 2023. Then Jan. 20, 2024 to Sep. 1, 2024, and Nov. 19, 2024 to March 9, 2043.
Aquarius is the sign of innovation. With Pluto transiting through, these innovations will be drastic. Expect radical shifts + major resistance to these new changes. (Traditions will be overturned, and people will CLING to those traditions, and PUNISH those who seek to overturn them. Like, the Right’s obsession with The Constitution is about to be CHALLENGED, y’all, and it ain’t going to be pretty).
This transit will lead to a fundamental re-evaluation of who “we” are (as humans, as genders, as nationalities, etc.). Wherever Aquarius is in your chart, you will be invited to REFORM YOUR IDENTITY. And of course, as a collective we are likely to see the same thing (don’t expect to see ONE nation under god by 2043. Expect plurality).
If you haven’t already, this transit is going to give you an opportunity to really FIND YOUR PEOPLE. The more you find your OWN authentic voice, the more likely you are to attract people who are compatible with it.
“Social change occurs when enough people of like mind bond together to enforce change within, and relative to, the outmoded structures of society.”*
This is why you’re hearing so much about MURMURATIONS, folks. As individuals, we’re shifting. And as with murmurations, even just a little shift within ourselves can lead to great change when we unite with those of like mind.
What’s most important for us all to ask ourselves now is: WHAT ARE WE SHIFTING TOWARDS? Envision it and we will become it.
*This is a quote from the book, “Pluto: The Evolutionary Journey of the Soul,” by Jeff Green, which I highly recommend if you’re interested in learning more about Pluto.
Magic for Pluto in Aquarius
Pay attention to the direction the winds of change blow in your life right now, from March 23rd to June 11. This WILL GIVE US A PREVIEW of some of the issues that will come up both personally and collectively over that whole 20 year period.
Journal about the transformations that went on for you while Pluto was in Capricorn (2008 - 2023), and how they were related to the larger world. Then, write about what you visualize/want to happen during the transit of Pluto in Aquarius (2023 - 2043).
Once you’ve done the journaling, get a small candle (like a birthday candle), and anoint it with oil and dab its base in a pinch of salt (signifying your future anchor in 2043). Speak to the candle your intention for this transit. In meditation, watch the candle burn all the way to the base while envisioning, in as much sensory detail as possible, what you’d like to transpire.

Results of Road Opener Spell
Dear Founding Level Subscribers,
Here you see a snapshot I took for you during the Road Opening spell I performed for you on the New Moon in Aries. This spell was designed to help you overcome obstacles and clear your path for new growth.
Group candle spells like this one are designed to give you my magical support as you proceed on your own journey in witchcraft.
For this spell, I created a Crossways Sign with dirt from a crossroads, Abre Camino (road opener) herbs, and flour. Offerings were given of whiskey, milk, and frankincense.
Each of your candles was chosen by color for your specific goal, and blessed three times with oil of rosemary and prayers to Hecate, Mercury, and another secret name.
Your name and petition was read aloud three times, and during the entire ceremony, until the candles burned all the way down, I chanted for your blessings.
Everyone’s candle burned clear and bright. I didn’t have to do any remediations. These candles burned FAST! The energy was ready to move and I felt a thrill of excitement move through as the spirits came in.
I expect you should see some movement soon!
