Pluto in Capricorn 2020-2040

Updated: Jul 22, 2023

Please remember that I am using the sidereal zodiac.

Pluto first made its entry in Capricorn on February 24 of 2020 and stayed here conjunct Saturn until June 29th of 2020. It then retrograded back into Sagittarius before re-entering Capricorn for good on December 30th, 2020. It remains here until January 15, 2040.

As I’ve mentioned a while ago in a blog post from 2020, corona virus was declared a pandemic while Pluto was at 0 degrees of Capricorn (in UttaraAshadha) on March 11 (3/11). On this day every planet was hemmed between Rahu and Ketu, except for the Moon, which was in the sign of health and healing, Virgo. Of course Rahu was in Gemini, in Ardra and Ketu in Sagittarius, in Mula, these nodal positions are key indicators of something major occurring in the world. The last time they were here was when 9/11 took place. Every 18 ½ years they return to these positions and vedic stars, indicating that an impactful event will take place in the world, normally an unfortunate and transformational event.

Capricorn is the sign of world leaders, the government, the powers that be, the financial or banking systems, and the infrastructures of society. This is the sign that deals with business, career, and social status. Whatever planet is placed here is put on display, seen by all, and is active in the world and society. Capricorn is opposite the house and sign of Cancer where things are not so seen, visible or observable; they are private, buried and not active in society, which relates to the global lockdowns we had during the pandemic.

The Vedic star UttaraAshadha is ruled by the Sun, which also represents world leaders and the governments. Now ponder on this word; government, which basically means to govern the ment. Ment is a Latin word for mind, so they “govern the mind” of the population. It’s interesting because the opposite sign Cancer represents our mind. Words have hidden meaning that most people aren’t aware of yet. Think of the word Pandemic, which comes from the Greek God Pan who is the bringer of Panic. Panic creates chaos and this paves the way for manipulation and control, two critical qualities of Pluto.

UttaraAshadha is known as the “star of victory”, and the “universal star”. It mainly represents the manifestation of God-like power! Wow, interesting right. Imagine power hungry Pluto, which represents covert manipulation, covert poisons, pandemics and epidemics, viruses and vaccines, in this powerful star and sign.

Pluto has positive and higher qualities too. Pluto gives important researching skills, deep perception and the ability to see beneath the surface of things. He is the lord of death and rebirth or regeneration. The old must be put to rest allowing the new to take place. What happens in-between will be challenging, but well worth it. That between stage is what some call the dark knight of the soul, where old beliefs are being replaced by truth and we are slowly dying to the old self. We are transforming into a butterfly by the rupturing or breaking free from the cocoon. Pluto also rules the cave of our subconscious mind, psychology, sudden reversals of fate, mafias (in all its forms), and deep transformation. Pluto holds the energy of the 8th house and Scorpio.

Pluto represents crises and this can be a good thing, it means that things must change, and can no longer remain the same. Change and deep transformation at the governmental level are a given throughout this 20-year transit. The voices of many will be heard demanding change in the form of protests. Many deep buried secrets will be brought to the light for all to see.

In Capricorn Pluto will operate in various ways. Firstly, it will encourage the population to research truth, an increasing number of whistle-blowers will surface. Corrupt documentation and financial exploitation will be exposed. Imprisonment of leaders or public figures is a high possibility.

There will be a complete regeneration of the money system (especially with the US as they have Pluto in Capricorn in the 2nd house of finance), and a restructuring of society and how we do things at the material/physical level. On the flip side, Pluto may strengthen the control tactics of world leaders. There is a high possibility for another pandemic, although when corona virus was declared a pandemic Pluto was conjunct Saturn, and even when the Aids outbreak occurred the same conjunction was present. The problem is when Ketu transits Virgo the sign of health, and Rahu goes in Pisces the sign of hospitalization and endings.

Pluto will square the upcoming solar eclipse in Aries on April 19 with a 1-degree orb, this will produce a crisis event of some sort.

Pluto will give us all the strength and determination to persevere and accomplish our material goals. Whatever house this transit is occurring in for you depending on your ascendant will be the house of upmost transformation and regeneration. It’s a powerful transit and this power needs to be channeled for positive purposes.
