Pluto, the planet of transformation and profound change, is making his shift into Capricorn in February in true sidereal astrology. This global event marks the beginning of a transformative period for the next seventeen years while Pluto is in Capricorn until 2041.

Capricorn signifies authority, structure, and tradition. With Pluto, the planet of transformation and change, we can expect significant alterations in our political, economic, and social systems on a global scale. It's a time of rebirth and restructuring, a time when the old gives way to the new.

Historical Context

The last time Pluto entered Capricorn was in 1776, a period that marked significant changes globally. This era was characterized by the transition from monarchies to republic and democratic forms of government. This was the birth of the United States of America and the beginning of revolutions across the world. This led to completely new societal structures, across all foundations of society. We saw a complete change to our societal structures from economics, science, technology, religion, etc. A time of when the ideas of the Age of Enlightenment were put into practice by the world at large.

The cycle prior, Pluto entered Capricorn in 1528. This marked the beginning of the Age of Exploration and Colonialism. The exploration led to the colonization of new lands and sea routes by Europe and Asia and the establishment of new empires across the world. This was also a time that could be classified as a complete transformation of the world at large. Similar to how the Age of Enlightenment ideas were applied in the late 1700's, this was a time when the ideas of the Renaissance were put into play.

Can can expect similar transformative changes to the world with Pluto starting to enter Capricorn in 2024?

Global Changes

Here are some possible scenarios:

Political restructuring: The combination of Pluto's transformative energy and Capricorn's association with authority and structure could lead to significant changes in the political systems worldwide. This could involve shifts in power dynamics, emergence of new political systems, and a complete change in how  we govern society.

Countries that exercise more control of their citizens could see a birth of greater freedoms and individual liberties. While countries with existing freedoms in place could see a change on how those freedoms are exercised or applied.

Economic evolution: The entry of Pluto into Capricorn could trigger significant shifts in the global economy. Similar to how we saw globally in the late 1700's and mid 1500's. This could lead to the rise of new industries, the decline of established ones, and the restructuring of the global economic system. On a macro level the current economic system could be overhauled. On a micro level businesses and corporations currently in power could see their end with an array of new ones being born.

Social transformation:  As we've seen the Pluto shift can have profound effects on the social fabric of societies around the world. Issues related to power, control, and authority could come to the forefront, leading to increased activism and the establishment of new social norms. Existing scientific and religious structures could see an overhaul. Systems currently in place that have a strong  influence over society such as the mainstream media, church, and scientific institutions could end, while freer independent systems could emerge. This could result in a shift in societal values, with new ideals and beliefs emerging as old ones are challenged and discarded.

Individual Impacts
