Plutos orbit is eccentric and the number of years
it stays in one sign varies widely. It may whip through a sign in as little as
a decade or settle in for as long as three. Right now, Pluto has entered into
Capricorn for a fourteen-year stint. With a planet this strong, staying in one
sign for so long, it influences a generation. Those born with Pluto in Cancer
are now in there seventies to nineties. Likewise, the Baby Boomers born with
Pluto in Leo are now reaching their fifties and sixties. Those born with Pluto
in Capricorn are not yet a year old. Each generation will experience this Pluto
shift into Capricorn differently.
PLUTO IN CANCER (1914-1939) Cancer is
the sign dealing with home and family. Those born into Pluto in Cancer saw
great economic changes and strong patriotic feelings for the homeland. With
Pluto in the most feminine sign of the Crab, womens role in the family
started to change. This generation will be particularly challenged, as Pluto in
Capricorn will face off against their Pluto in Cancer. How have they used power
and authority? Many will now be looking to family for help and issues of
personal power will abound. If one is sick or facing disease, there is a
feeling of being powerless. But for those open to change this can be the most
powerful time in their lives.
PLUTO IN LEO (1939-1958) This is the time
of the Baby Boomers. Forget about family responsibilities, its all about
me. Hard work is passé and doing what feels good is the order of the
day. Because of the shear number of Baby Boomers they have had to be paid
attention to. Monarchies collapsed and royal families toppled as the
transformation aspects of Pluto played out. Now, with Pluto in Capricorn, this
generation will have to face limitation, and adjustments they have always been
able to skirt around. Its not going to be comfortable, but the Pluto in
Leo generation can reach a new understanding of what it means to take charge of
their life. More and more Baby Boomers will start their own companies and move
into a new level of creative expression.
PLUTO IN VIRGO (1958-1972)
Computers come into being and revolutionize the world. What we know and how
fast we know it forever change. Virgo is concerned with health and healing. Now
we find out about toxic food additives and eating organic. The sign of the
Virgin wants to serve, and organizations like the Peace Corps come into being.
Virgo seeks perfection and we became a more demanding society. As the Pluto in
Virgo generation deals with Plutos transit through Capricorn they can use
the combination to help heal the earth. Look for new legislation that will help
us all go green and new penalties for those who continue to pollute the earth.
New discoveries in medicine will come about as a generation stands up and for
what it believes in.
PLUTO IN LIBRA (1972-1984) This is a generation
born to discover what love means to them. New concepts of love come into being,
as men love men and women love women and everyone is open about it. What
constitutes a marriage? Should same sex partners adopt? Harmony and equality
are nice ideas but how do we live out those concepts in our day-to-day lives?
Our legal system gets challenged to answer questions it never anticipated and
the legal profession has its own population explosion. Libra wants what
is pretty and fun. A new focus on celebrity comes about that has us wondering
what everyone is wearing instead of what they are doing. Those born into this
period are going to face some tough choices in the coming years. It feels as if
the party is over and someone just handed you the bill. The cry will be
but its not fair, and learning to change an unfair world into
one more equal will be their new mission.
PLUTO IN SCORPIO (1984-1995)
The intense qualities of Scorpio ensure this generation will have its hands
full. Handling AIDS and STDs are a way of life, and getting
someones sexual history before sex, is just considered normal. Junk bonds
floated, banks failed, and we all discovered trickle down economics. Medicine
used as weapons in biological warfare intensified, and we discovered there are
lots of secrets lurking just out of reach. Everything kicked up a notch, and
the world seemed to turn ever faster. Pluto in Capricorn can help this
generation discover its purpose. Those born into this period are just beginning
to discover their drive toward success. They will be tested on their means as
well as their ends, but as long as they are harnessing their drive for the
greater good they will find their personal power along the way.
IN SAGITTARIUS (1995-2008) We have all seen the results of Plutos
intensity married to the moral certainty of Sagittarius. We have religious
fanatics from all sides saying not only that they are right, but everyone else
is wrong. And because they are wrong, its okay to blow up those who
believe differently. Sagittarius rules religions and we have long-buried
secrets of the Catholic Church coming to light. We have new spiritual leaders
and new religions popping up every day. Anything and everything is considered
to be someones religion. It is learning about our differences, and how
they bring us together, instead of tear us apart. As this generation
experiences Pluto in Capricorn they will learn about what it is they truly
PLUTO IN CAPRICORN (2008-2023) So here we are at the Pluto in
Capricorn generation. How will Pluto play out in their lives? This is a new
generation that will be raised in households that are experiencing massive
destruction and rebuilding of monetary values. It is almost certain that to
some extent they will encode the financial fear of their parents. The adults
around them are learning that everything they have can be gone in a minute.
They are paying a price for building their finances on uncertain ground. The
message they hear will be have a few dollars put away. In some ways
it is reminiscent of the Depression era children. We are bringing in a new
generation of savers. Babies will grow up wanting to know the rules and what
they need to do to be successful. They will look for tangible rewards and solid
achievement as payoff for hard work. Better start putting some money aside for
allowances because these kids will earn it!
