We prefer to establish connections between our personal experiences and planetary movements, as a way of practicing “live astrology” that goes beyond predetermined manuals. Unfortunately, on this occasion, we cannot do so, as the last time Pluto was in Aquarius was 245 years ago.
Pluto in Aquarius: Reflecting on its historical and future effects
However, we can examine the potential effects of this celestial body in the Aquarian zodiacal belt, relating them to historical events that occurred in that distant time when Pluto was in Aquarius between 1778 and 1798.

Pluto’s Transit through Aquarius: A Preview of the Next 20 Years
Due to the eccentric nature of Pluto’s orbit, its stay in each sign varies; its maximum speed is 12 years in one sign, but it can take up to 32 years to travel through a complete zodiacal strip.
This time, Pluto will first enter Aquarius on March 23 and stay there until June 11, less than three months. Then, it will retrograde and return to Capricorn for the rest of 2023.
On January 21, 2024, it will re-enter Aquarius and begin its long journey that will last 20 years, until January 19, 2044. However, before this, in 2043, it will make some “technical adjustments” in Pisces.
From March 23 to June 11, we will experience a preview of what the next 20 years of Pluto in the sign of Aquarius will be like.
