@jeng35, thank you for sharing your thoughts, I really enjoyed reading that. And nice pickup regarding my thoughts on Pluto in Capricorn! The original question that I had when I wrote this post was about Pluto’s shift from Capricorn to Aquarius, and how Capricornian events might lead to an Aquarian landscape but I wanted to open it up to other possible directions. You have a good eye, I appreciate that.

jeng35 said
Aquarius has to do with technology and “future” but it also has to do with “going off the grid.” What I mean by this is I can see an Aquarius being at the front end of technological advances, but I can also see an Aquarius living off the land without electricity. In fact, I know an Aquarius man who did that with his family that had six children. He built his own home, but they had to live in a barn he made first (I’m 36, and I was friends with his daughter). 

Even though Aquarius squares Scorpio, I think of them playing nice (better than Leo and Scorpio). Both want to be authentic, and need space (Scorpio calls it privacy) to be themselves. Uranus is exalted in Scorpio. I can’t say for sure what Pluto in Aquarius will look like, but I can guess. 

Aquarius is all about groups, or your tribe. Add in some Pluto flavor and you’ve got “I need my people to survive” and “I need to be free to survive.” Pluto is about control and Aquarius about youth. I think “youth” maybe literally or just the attitude that is supportive of youth will have control and power. Technology as we use it and understand it might be “blasé” and with Pluto deconstructing it we might move on to something else. What? It wouldn’t be Uranus rules Aquarius if we could guess. Both Uranus and Pluto can represent trauma, so their might be some of that. Which matters more? The group or the individual? That’s what Aquarius considers a lot, and traumatic events might help us learn about this idea. Also, Aquarius is all about the mind. There will be a lot of thinking and communicating. Social justice and crossing taboo social lines could be embraced (friendships with people very different from you). Here is an interesting twist. Aquarius is all about platonic friendships, or relationships that are casual. I’m curious how our view of sex, being a Pluto experience, might change during its time in Aquarius.

I have an Aquarius moon, and my mom is an Aquarius. I’m a tad nervous about my Pluto Moon transit that will come up.     

  

Funny you should mention going off the grid–the other day, I had the strongest urge to get rid of my smartphone for something super basic, and I wondered if that would even be possible–it’s become a necessary requirement for work, etc., in a lot of cases, for almost all of us. On the other hand, I’m getting more annoyed with the spy in my pocket, and would love to see our digital use dissipate some. It might be that we’ll reach a fork in the road regarding tech, where we can either merge with our technology (chips, implants, artificial transplants, etc–Aquarius on the cutting edge of science), or go off grid, or offline, only interacting with people face to face (Aquarius as a detached radical humanist–when having only face to face interactions is radical! Ha!). 

Your comment about freedom and survival makes me think about what I was talking about in my post, which now that you’ve added the astrology clarifies some ideas about the collective feeling that might have motivated the American Revolution, and any similarities to that feeling today–survival; I need to be free to survive…. (what does freedom mean, today? where are the places we feel it’s most in jeopardy?).

I’ve never heard Uranus associated with trauma before but I can see that, with its sudden nature. This is another place I see those Pluto in Capricorn events setting the stage for the transition to Aquarius. Because of the potential tension between individual and group, I wonder if labels (political labels, social labels, etc.) will increase or decrease in importance. Perhaps we individuals might then operate as one body (something closer to democracy, as you mentioned above), instead of layers and layers of opposing factions. 

The connection between Aquarius and platonic friendships is very interesting. Of course, there’s the possibility of AI playing a greater role in how we view sex, which could even shift how we view personal relationships. Just riffing off your idea about platonic friendships, if sexual needs were otherwise taken care of, friendships might function as primary relationships. But even if our sex lives remain a human to human connection (I hope they do!), the idea of having more important friendships is a happy one. I wonder how intimate, secret-keeping Pluto will adjust…

Your post was super thought provoking! love that Aquarian Moon energy!

Beautiful writing, and very well researched.

About your comment of younger people running the world…I was talking to someone today. With Coronavirus fatalities concentrated disproportionately on the elderly population, it looks more than likely that younger and younger generations would have to step up and fill the vaccum created.

The converse side is, look at the loss of oral history, traditions and so much wisdom…. My heart weeps for China and Italy.

  

Curl, that is a sharp connection, albeit a really sobering sad one. That is definitely the type of thing I wanted to discover in this post (not the sad part specifically, of course, but how events/seeds sown now in Pluto in Cap, will reveal themselves/grow, in the future, in Pluto in Aquarius). 

It’s an interesting (not the right word) twist that younger generations could be forced to step up in the absence of more experienced leaders, versus usurping their position (so to speak). So there is obligation there (thinking of Saturn as the traditional ruler of Aquarius). Usurping makes me think of Zeus/Jupiter, realizing the obligations (Jupiter in Capricorn) he now has after conquering his father. 

Doing some more free associating… In writing this, I started to think about the “longer childhoods” recent generations have had, and how people go back and forth on them as immature, etc. It strikes me that some in those generations could possibly lose their parents/elders in one fell swoop right now (as you mentioned, that is the case elsewhere in the world), and, for all intents and purposes, be thrust into adulthood, away from traditional family structures (which typically revolves around an older matriarch/patriarch), and forced into cultivating supportive structures with friends and the community at large. (still praying for the best possible outcome for all). 

I’m also weary about what an unimaginable loss that would be, and is right now in other places. Losing those generations, even to the degree we already have, is a loss that I don’t think we can comprehend fully, at this point. I can’t at least. 

Diving back in to do some research.

I wonder if people are really going to realize that THEY’RE the sh*tty friend, and not everyone else!?? The ghosting, flakiness, the ‘I’m better than you’ attitude, and other bad habits society has taught us for the past 30 years! 

How’s that for Pluto in Aquarius? Friendships re-examined.

Oh man! I was just discussing with husband a really shity friendship that I have and it makes me feel so bad every time I get exposed to it. Some people have this really bad energy that makes you feel inadequate or less. There has to be a way of weeding out such friendships from our life. Maybe Pluto in Aquarius will do this.

I would check if that feeling is your intuition, or not. It’s cool to be flaky and detached these days!

Elsa, yes 200%! 

And some scars never fully heal. Luckily, I’ve only been betrayed twice in my whole life! But, maybe that’s enough, or average.

What if, when we die we have an option or perhaps it’s enforced that our brain is uploaded into a digital network.

This goes along the line of thinking my brother n law has. He thinks he will be able to be hooked up to a computer. He is all for having a chip put in his brain to increase his intelligence. He has a very high I.Q. but emotionally stunted. He is an aquarius .His wife , my sister is as well but she has quite a bit of Capricorn so she is more down to earth than he is.

PrimeVideo has a new series called Upload with that premise. You’re not required to upload but many people want to. The world you upload to is determined by how much money you can afford…not all heavens are equal. Also if you are not maintaining your account you get frozen in the heaven world…it’s a pretty creepy idea.

OMG!

I looked it up on PrimeVideo, and this is scary eek_gif and yes, I agree it’s a very creepy idea.

For me, I put this in the same basket as cryogenics.

No thanks!
