Pluto in the Signs
Aries | Taurus |Gemini |Cancer |Leo |Virgo |Libra |
Scorpio |Sagittarius |Capricorn |Aquarius |Pisces
PLUTO IN ARIES - Pluto is where we can go to extremes. Aries is where we take action. If you think that this makes for self-involved people who are prone to take extreme action, you are right. Those born in the 1830’s and 1840’s had this placement. When they grew up, they became a very optimistic, can-do generation.
PLUTO IN TAURUS- Pluto rules Scorpio, so it is debilitated in Taurus, the opposite sign. Here we have the planet of death and rebirth in a sign of stability, the planet of obsessions in a sign that loves material and sensual pleasures. The last time Pluto was here was from about 1853 to 1883. ** That was a generation that believed strongly in material progress and slow, steady improvements, and ignored forces that were lurking right beneath the surface. They led humanity into World War One.
PLUTO IN GEMINI- When Pluto is transiting a sign, people alive at that time get obsessed with the things that the sign rules, but they often cannot bring them into fruition. The generation born with that Pluto placement, however, will be obsessed with those things for their entire lives. THEY are the ones who finally make it happen. When Pluto was in Gemini, the great ideas of the age were undermined and started to get overthrown. Planck and Einstein overthrew classical physics, Freud turned ideas of the human mind upside down, and Picasso destroyed art. None of those ideas were really accepted though, until the generation born with Pluto in Gemini grew up and took power. Planck wrote that ideas don’t win out by force of logic, but only when their opponents die out and a new, unbiased generation takes over. Pluto, planet of death and regeneration, in Gemini, sign of ideas.
PLUTO IN CANCER- made a generation that was obsessed with home and homeland. These folks were born between 1914 and 1939. When they grew up, the suburbs in this country exploded. Everybody HAD to have their own home. Around the world, most of the colonies became independent. Home and homeland.
PLUTO IN LEO- marked a generation (1939 to 1956, and some in 1957 and 1958) that was obsessed with self-expression. These are the War babies and the baby boomers, and "Do your own thing" was (and still is) their motto. This was the generation that was never going to grow old. As they age, they become fanatic about trying to stay young, hence the proliferation of health clubs. Before 1960, marketing experts could tell estimate from a person’s income, what kind of car they would probably drive, how expensive their house was, etc. The Pluto in Leo people turned that topsy-turvy because they would splurge on the things most important to them and skimp on everything else. You would get people who would live in a small house but drive a big car and take expensive vacations, or someone who would live in a big house and drive a beetle. And of course, this generation made all those riots on the campus. Pluto in Leo will always defy authority, unless, of course, THEY are the authority.
PLUTO IN VIRGO- This happened the last time from 1956 to 1971. By contrast with the Pluto in Leo generation, which made riots on the campus, Pluto in Virgo people are more concerned with work and health, preferring to be active in the background rather than being in the spotlight. Of course, this is just one placement, and again, I must emphasize to look at the whole chart before reaching a final conclusion. Remember that Pluto stays in a sign for about 14 years at a stretch and shows the underlying traits shared by an entire generation.
PLUTO IN LIBRA- Pluto in Libra: gave us a generation (1972 to 1984) that will be obsessed with art. When they grow older and move into positions of power, look for an increase in the art market. They will also be obsessed with fairness, justice, and partnership. Look for the institution of marriage to make a brief comeback, and for a push to reform the legal codes.
PLUTO IN SCORPIO- happened from 1984 to 1995. This generation will be obsessed with all things sexual (who isn’t, but they will be even more so). Even more, however, they will be the generation to bring about a biological revolution, including human cloning.
PLUTO IN SAGITTARIUS- is obsessed with long journeys. This is the generation (1995 to 2008) that will want to go into outer space, the only true long journey left.
PLUTO IN CAPRICORN- happened last time in the 1760’s and 1770’s. Pluto is death and rebirth. When it was in Capricorn, sign of organization and of organizations, the sign of authority, there was the first truly successful revolt against an empire. The American Revolution. Those born with this placement included the people who made the French Revolution, as well as one who established a new authority, Napoleon. He was the first modern dictator, extending state authority further than ever before.
PLUTO IN AQUARIUS- The planet of Death and rebirth in the sign of sudden, radical changes. The last time this happened was during the French Revolution, a time period that shook Europe to its very foundations. People born during that time were obsessed, as a generation (not, of course, every single individual), with the new ideas of Liberty, Fraternity, and Equality, all of which have an Aquarian nature.
PLUTO IN PISCES- This happened the last time during the first two decades of the 1800’s. People born with this placement will tend to be fantasize to obsession. This will not occur again until 2043. If you are still alive then, look for a rise in drug addiction to plague society.
