Astrology – Pluto in Capricorn

When reading The Only Astrology Book You'll Ever Need I found this short section fascinating. It explains the influence the planet Pluto has when it's in the constellation Capricorn, which occurs from 2009 to 2024. Here is the excerpt:

Because Capricorn is the sign of discipline and ambition, Pluto's influence here should stress responsibility and the ethic of work. Capricorn is the sign of government and long-term security, and Pluto may have the effect of bringing a new world order into being. Individual nations may join in a system of world government that leads to greater stability. Starwatchers are focused on the year 2012, which the Mayan calander marks as the "end of the world." Many spiritual movements believe this is a metaphor for a change in "consciousness" when the human race will adopt a more spiritual value system. Astrologically,Pluto in Capricorn holds out the hope there will be an end to war.

What does this mean to me? If I take the information in The New Revelations seriously, than humanity is about to make a leap in spirituality or be destroyed by their own devices. It seems to line up well with what this excerpt describes. There are so many things that line up with 2012 it will be interesting to live through, far more so than the year 2000. It would be interesting to know about this in more detail, all of the astrological affects, but I really can't make time for it right now. However it appears I have until 2012 or so! 🙂 If anyone knows more about this, I'd be really interested in hearing about it.

    Pluto in Capricorn in History:
    1762-78: a time of economical and political crisis. US was born there but the more influyent French Revolution had to wait till Pluto reached Aquarius.
    1516-1533: Religious and political crisis with the Protestant Reform. The Empire of Charles V and the Papacy challenged but not yet crumbled nor replaced.
    1270-87: A complex period of replacement of old states by new ones (favored: Mongols in East Asia and Iran, Mamluks, Aragon, France…)
    1024-42: fall of the Caliphate of Cordoba, division of the “Navarrese empire”, Italy incorporated by Germany into the HRE. But again some major events, like the Norman invasion of England, had to wait till Pluto was in Aquarius.
    778-795: the core of the Age of Charlemagne.
    532-550: age of Justinian (with Belisarius), Nubia converted to Christianity, suppossed date of the death of King Arthur.
    286-305: post-crisis of the Roman Empire: exactly the period of the first Tetrarchy (Diocletian-Maximinian)
    41-60: period of Claudius and (partly) Nero in Rome (but all the “action” of Nero’s reign came in the Pluto-in-Aquarius period actually).

    So yes, your book may have a point, but I tend to consider Pluto in these signs (Capricorn and Aquarius) as sign of major changes, not necessarily creation of a “New Order”.

    Pluto is after all a radical transmuter. Uranus is maybe more spectacular but Pluto is deep. Pluto in Capricorn (and even more in Aquarius), shatters the status quo.

    That’s interesting. However, if you look at where we are, and look for what would be the greatest change, it would be to move towards spiritual awakening. Though, it’s still our choice. We could choose to go even further into darkness, and destroy ourselves, though I’m not sure how much of a change that is.

    Thanks for the references though. It’s not something I’ve had time to research myself. I’ll be looking forward to the shattering of the status quo 😉

  3. Sue Ann Edwards Says:

    For Awakening, look to Uranus moving through Pisces. Pluto, brings tranformation of the physical plane while in Capricorn.

    Based on our choices over the past 15 years involving power issues.

    For more in depth, according to Sun sign, you might be interested in

    Our choices to use ANY aspect of force over the past 15 years, would be what is considered “misuse” of Power.

    Pluto moving into Capricorn is basically our harvest, of the inner seeds and fields we’ve been tending over the last 15 years, while Pluto has been in Sagittarius.

    For quite a few of us, this is going to be the crop that comes as a result of planting seeds of emotional insecurity. If we haven’t become inner directed, we’re going to be given sufficient motivation to do so.

    For the status quo to be “shattered”, it means a lot of egos will be “shattered” right along with it. I might suggest “dissolving” would be a more loving way to experience it. Smiling.

    Pluto in Capricorn. Big deal. It is a big deal. The deepest level of human conscience, death and rebirth moving towards our ability to discipline and monitor our own action, beliefs, and desire to change. Personal and/or global, something is definitely in the air. Can we handle it? Do we have enough time. Will we make it to the “Aquarian Age” Time will tell!!!! Keep posted.

  5. O'Dell Johnson Says:

    This is the dawning of the age of aquarius we are crossing over from the piscean age of “I believe” to the aquarian age of “I Know”, where mankind begins once again to align itself with truth, light, order and love, most importantly the order of light returns relinquishing the darkness or false hoods. Satan, meaning opponent, was called the light bearer because the light he carried was brilliant however, of a false nature. This change in our consciousness is as simple as the night giving way to the dawn, we see it every morning, we see it every morning, we see it every……. morning. No matter how you break it down into ages or constellation patterns, we in our human form are caught up in this dark becoming light episode being played out right before our eyes. The light arrives on time “as the universe (not the world) turns”. The darkness fights to maintain itself, and we all shall see who has been serving the false light and who has been serving the one true light. Not all of us……will make it! The darkness will disperse!

    Pluto is the bringer of change on a grand scale. Although the changes
    may be painful at first, Pluto is really a positive influence, because you
    will have the opportunity to replace what is ripped away with something
    new. After you let go of what Pluto takes from you, you have a new
    canvass on which to paint. You receive a new beginning.
    (Note: it is best not to resist the changes that Pluto brings because that
    will only drag the process out much longer than need be).
    Pluto will also change your perspective toward a particular area of your
    life depending on where it falls in your birth chart. What you normally
    would think and feel about specific topics, actions, and ideals will

    I have a couple of questions, because my knowledge of astrology is very basic. My daughter’s sun sign is Capricorn. With Pluto in Capricorn, does this have any particular significance when the sun sign is Capricorn, or is the significance more connected with where Pluto was when she was born, which was in Libra?

    Another question: how can I work out where Chiron is on my chart?
    thank you to anyone who helps me out with this. Shoshana

  8. butchjax Says:

    I don’t know. I’d recommend getting the book I read, referenced in the post for more understanding. Then you can do your own detailed chart, though I don’t know if Chiron is referenced at all. You’d need to go through some astronomy references to see where Chiron was located at the time of your birth. Beyond that I don’t know, as I’ve never done that.

    Good luck!

    I also have Pluto in Libra and he is in my 8th houes, his natural home. Moreover, I am Capricorn rising with a Capricorn moon in the 12th. That being said I still can’t say just what this will mean for myself or your daughter. I can say that like you, I wondered and worried to the piont of driving myself crazy. However, I found a really great Psycich and put him through many test to make sure he was real and accurate. He passed every one over a period of time. He is amazing and everything he has seen in my life has come to pass. The reason I tell you all of this is because he tells me very good things about what is taking shape in my life, the changes and what’s about to happen. He tells me everything has a very good out look but that it will look and feel very different than the life I am living now. His visions have help me to not worry so much and just breath a little deeper. Maybe your daughter’s experience will be similar to that of wich he explained to me.
    I hope that helped, if even a little.

    Bless you both,

    I will try to explain the significance of Pluto in Capricorn. Pluto last went into Capricorn in 1762 so it has been 245 years since it last visited that sign. In astrology major things occur when you have two or more big cycles intersecting. Pluto first moved into Capricorn in late January of 2008. We also have a couple of other major cycles occurring. Saturn and Uranus moved into an exact opposition on Election Day 2009. This happens every 45 years and it is always a time of upheaval and a battle between the status quo and the future.

    In late 2009 we will have what is called a T-Square between Saturn, Uranus and Pluto. The last time this particular pattern occurred was in 1932 at the nadir of the Great Depression. This combination of Pluto moving into Capricorn along with the T-Square it will form with Saturn and Uranus has been called the “Cardinal Climax” by renowned financial astrologer Ray Merriman.

    It promises to be a time of rapid change in the financial and sociological spheres. Ray Merriman – along with other prominent astrologers – have been writing and talking about this time in history for over 20 years. Astrologers can’t always predict events as much as they can predict which archetypes will be seen in a given time.

    As a previous poster stated this has something to do with the approaching of the Aquarian Age. We don’t know for sure when this will actually occur, but it is clear that we have been in the dawn or the edge of the Aquarian Age for some time now. The ages don’t shift in sharp lines; they flow together more like a wave so they overlap for periods of history.

    Rest assured that as the Mayan calendar ends and we move into this Cardinal Climax it will not be the end of the world but the beginning, or shifting, into a new age.

    I hope this helps.

    To Shoshana Bregman: If you want to find where Chiron is in your chart, and every other planet and major asteroid, I recommend this website: Once you get there, on the left side of the page you will find a link that says “Natal Chart & Ascendant”. After you input your data, you’ll get a birth chart, over which you can hover with your mouse and find out what you need. It’s free.
    Best wishes!

    That was a intriguing read|. Your insights were very educational and made me reconsider the current developments in these areas. If only more writers are as mindful and as passionate about educating the population regarding these issues as you, we aspiring journalists wouldn’t get a really bad rep. Appreciate expressing yourself so articulately. You made my day.
