Pluto’s Ingress into Aquarius: What World Are We Co-Creating?
With events of recent history, it’s no wonder that many of us, myself included, are hopeful for a new day to dawn… but how many of us truly embrace the adage, "If it's to be, it's up to me?" I must confess that I struggle with this regularly. It does appear that we were born into a world that is already mostly baked.
I do believe in my core, however, that we co-create our reality. I believe that our thoughts ripple out into the universe and alter the fabric of space/time in a myriad of ways. If we aren't happy with our reality, then we have one person to deal with on that front... the one we see in the mirror. We are responsible for it all.
Now, I know that topic could fill volumes and spark much debate... and this is a blog, but as I'm pondering the epic nature of the events of today and the theme of this blog, I feel struck by my responsibility in the creation of my world.
I also believe that we chose to be born into this timeline on Earth to participate in the turning of the tide of human history. This is when and where the party is the most interesting, not necessarily the most fun, but certainly, interesting!
I have a vision of how life could be for all of us. It's so beautiful... so utopian!
The air and water are clean and pure. There's enough organic food for everyone. We have the time and energy to pursue our passions. The educational system is transformed and fulfilling its directive to provide inspiring food for thought. Each individual has the opportunity to pursue the vocation that fulfills them the most. We are liberated and free to live the lives of our dreams.
War is a thing of the past. That which divided us is understood as the greatest illusion in this 4D experience. We were never meant to be threatened by each other. We were meant to love each other. We realize that our diversity is something to be celebrated and nurtured. We each bring a unique gift to the world.
I long for this world! I feel as though I remember this world and I desire to see it unfurl like a glorious flag in our collective reality.
The cognitive dissonance and disparity between this vision and the world that we have collectively created is monumental. There's a sad, tragic, almost hopeless feeling as I grapple with the issues that we face. How on earth can we create the world I long for?
I suppose this is where Ho'oponopono comes in:
"I'm sorry, please forgive me, thank you, I love you!"
Now, we do live in a 4D matrix, so everything has an archetypal meaning. Specifically, Pluto, the “lord of the underworld,” has a role to play as he makes his slow trek through the zodiac. His job is to expose the underbelly of society and he has certainly done that as he’s made his methodical journey through Capricorn since November 26, 2008…my birthday of all days! That was a challenging time for a lot of us, especially those of us who were in real estate.
The 2008 crash definitely changed my real estate trajectory, but it also nudged William and me to finish our book “Wings: The Journey Home,” and to focus more on our astrology business, which is my passion.
This morning, January 20th at 5:46 am, PST* the Sun joined Pluto at 29°59’ Capricorn… the final arc minute of the sign! This was the last time we’ll have a Pluto cazimi (in the heart of the Sun) in Capricorn in our lifetimes!
The Sun then ingressed into Aquarius at 6:07 a.m. PST, and at 4:56 p.m., Pluto will make his second of 3 entries into the fixed air sign of the “Water Bearer!” The first time was on March 23rd of last year.
There’s a sense of partnership with the Sun during Pluto’s ingress into Aquarius. The Sun moves in first as if to assess the atmosphere and light the way for Pluto to do his work in this ironically dispassionate humanitarian sign.

Pluto retrogrades back into Capricorn…
…for one final time on September 1, 2024, and hangs out at 29° (the anaretic degree**) until he moves back into Aquarius for the final time on November 19, 2024, shortly after the much-anticipated election in the U.S.
Note that whenever we begin to implement something, there’s often a need to go back and review it before we charge forward…
I came up with an analogy today as I was screwing the lid back on my collagen tub. Whenever I am putting a lid back on a container, I tend to line up the threads by turning the lid a little bit retrograde, and then feeling that “pop” when the lid’s threads line up with the container’s, and then I’m ready to complete the closing of the container.
As I have clarified many times before, no planet actually goes “backward,” but the planets appear to change direction relative to Earth: the faster inner planets come between the Earth and the Sun, while for the slower outer planets, the Earth comes between them and the Sun. Nonetheless, this shift in the relationship between the planets and Earth is a great time for a reassessment.
In the case of Pluto, he not only exposes the underbelly of society but also transforms it, which is why he is known as “The Transformer.”
The planets affect us both collectively and personally. In 2008, Pluto transformed the real estate industry as well as my path when he entered Capricorn because Capricorn is the sign ruled by Saturn, who rules structures. The real estate industry deals with the buying and selling of land (foundations) as well as literal structures (buildings and homes).

You can read more about Pluto in Capricorn in my blog last year:
And when Saturn joined Pluto in 2020, it changed the structure of society with the coronavirus. You can read about that in my blog from 2020:
While we can think of Saturn and Capricorn as a pyramid structure, since pyramids are the strongest structures on Earth, and even social organizations tend to follow a pyramidal structure (e.g., governments, religions, corporations, etc.), we can think of Aquarius, also ruled by Saturn, as more of an inverted pyramid whereby those within a society run it through their labor, innovations, ideas, votes, and contribution versus through force, power, control, etc.
Uranus, the modern ruler of Aquarius is “the planet of change,” so with this in mind, we have the planet of transformation moving into the sign of innovation, ruled by the planet of change.
Therefore, Pluto is wrapping up its transformation of structures this year and moving on to transform the way we innovate and run things. We already see it in the areas of digital currencies, AI, self-driving vehicles, and robotic food delivery vehicles. We can expect to see a lot of change within the next several years…the last time that Pluto was in Aquarius was between 1778 and 1797 when our nation and France introduced a paradigm shift from millennia of monarchies to democracy!
Could we be moving from elections to some sort of direct democracy? We’ll just have to co-create and see!
There is no doubt that society will be transforming, but how will you be transforming as an individual?
Schedule a complimentary S.P.A. for the SOUL™ with me to discuss what Pluto is uncovering for you. It is empowering to perceive the planets' movements as internal movements occurring within each of us...
Let’s transform and soar in 2024!
*All times are Pacific Standard Time
**The anaretic degree is the final degree of any sign and is said to be a point of great tension, bringing a sense of urgency in the area of life depending on the sign.
