The first astrological event of the day is very special, and the absolute last time anybody will experience it in this lifetime 🙀

Pluto will be conjunct the Sun (also known as cazimi!) in Capricorn at 8:45am Eastern Time. This Pluto cazimi is happening at the very last degree of Capricorn before both the Sun and Pluto enter Aquarius!

This is the second mini show that Pluto will be giving us in Aquarius. Our first preview was March 23, 2023 to June 11, 2023. Now, Pluto will be transiting Aquarius from January 20, 2024 to May 2, 2024, then will go retrograde again back into Capricorn for a bit at the end of the year before finally settling into Aquarius for 20 years. Feel like an epic event to you? Phew, yeah me too.

This whole experience has really lit me up. The once in a lifetime experience of it all has my Sagittarius energy buzzing, and my hopes for positive collective change and care has my eyes ready to brim with tears. Not because it’s right on the cusp of happening, but because we have so far to go, and I (and countless others!) want it so badly.

This Pluto cazimi indicates that it is time to start anew, but before you can do that, there might be something you need to end or finish. Pluto is connected to power, death, and rebirth, and their conjunction with the Sun shows us that something is getting renewed. Consider what long term plans you want to re-engage with, and what power plays or dynamics might be contributing to your focus or success with them. 

What feelings or intuitive hits have you been having about your life as you think about the next 5-8 months? Lean into those and check if there are any changes you need to make with your tasks, organizations, or schedule now to keep your energy focused on what you truly want. You will get a chance to re-review any choices you make now when Pluto is retrograde in Capricorn later in 2024.

Less than an hour after the cazimi, the Sun enters Aquarius. Aquarius is a social sign that is focused on collective concerns and people while the Sun is a planet (technically a luminary!) that is focused on personal vitality and attention towards the self. In Aquarius, the Sun is in their detriment, a sign where a planet doesn’t do well and has to work hard to perform its job. A lot of the inventiveness and innovation that comes out of Aquarius energy doesn’t result in instant gratification. It takes a lot of forward thinking that can often be conceptual. The Sun tends to be more of a “here and now” planet, wanting to reap the rewards, benefits, and praise of hard work in the moment.

With the Sun transiting Aquarius, you’ll want to contemplate how you can use your own vitality for collective purposes, for all of humanity. And you’ll have to be okay with the fact that it may just be you making one small positive change that won’t become a raging hit in our lifetimes. 

This is also a logical time (like what I did there?!) to slip into your own visionary slippers and think about how you can shape or reshape your own life. This is a mentally stimulating time that may bring more conversations or constant thought, so allow yourself to explore your present path rationally. How do you want your life to be? What do you need to do to make that happen? With Pluto transiting here, it’s a useful time to let stubborn or rigid ways of thinking get disrupted. Shake it off and create a new mindset. 

And then the last moment of the day, that everybody has been waiting for, or fearful of, or in quiet anticipation of is… Pluto’s ingress into Aquarius!  

Pluto in Aquarius is going to change the world we live in. It’s heralding a new era. Pluto is a deeply probing planet that seeks answers and hidden information, which tells you to look and then look farther, and helps you ask the right questions; the kind of questions that can unearth meaning, hidden truths, and shatter systems. 

In Aquarius, Pluto is going to slowly bring our awareness to issues surrounding technology, social justice, and humanitarianism. We could see rapid advancement with technology, we could also see advanced technology be mis-used or broken. There are so many conversations happening about what to expect with Pluto in Aquarius! 

The thought I want to leave you with here is: where in my life do I want to break things down so I can rebuild? And what do I need to remain focused on for that to happen?

Capricorn – focused, structured, conservative, hard-working, strategic planner, practical, grounded, endurance, long term

Sun – the sun is your identity, your vitality, and your life purpose

Pluto – transformation, power, death and rebirth, things that are hidden, wealth, control
