Saturn and Pluto – Era of Transformation

Saturn and Pluto – Trumpet of Transformation

There is change up ahead. Cosmological change, that is!

Two of our planets are changing the astrological houses they have been inhabiting. This type of change leads to the ending of one cosmic ‘reality’ and ushers in a new one.

The Planets


We have ‘inner planets’ which are planets that can be seen with the naked eye. The farthest planet we can see from Earth is Saturn. 

Fantastical Saturn with its majestic rings is unmistakable in the night sky. Being the farthest planet, Saturn is a cosmological metaphor for boundaries and limitations. A gatekeeper to 3D, if you will.


Farther, much farther away, is Pluto. We cannot see it. Even with telescopes, this dwarf planet is hard to locate. Pluto is the farthest known planet in our solar system. Beyond Neptune. Beyond Uranus. Regardless, Pluto’s effects are the equivalent of a bass drum that echoes throughout the Universe. It IS.

Planet 9

There is one other planet that is believed to be farther than Pluto: Planet 9. It was announced in 2015 when Batygin and Brown from Caltech provided mathematical evidence of its existence. Although NASA has not confirmed Planet 9’s existence as of March 1, 2023, researchers are on the lookout for it. 

“If Planet X is out there, we’ll find it together”

Jim Green, Director of NASA’s Planetary Science Division

Direct observation of Planet 9 is tricky as this planet has a 10,000 – 20,000 year orbit around our Sun. That’s a really long orbit time to go around our Sun once! It might be faint to detect but astronomers believe it will be possible to spot using modern telescopes and the mathematical coordinates they now have. 

The Kuiper Belt (our Milky Way) holds many mysteries to our cosmological origins.

Saturn and Pluto Events

This month, March 2023, both Saturn and Pluto will be changing houses; changing astrological signs. 

Saturn remains in an astrological house an average of 2 1/2 years. Saturn’s effect of creating order, rules, boundaries, and grounding is legendary. It has a patriarchal quality of control. 

Pluto remains in an astrological house for an average of 20 years. The planet’s irregular orbit results in stays of 12 to 30 years. Pluto has an elliptical orbit and it is tugged by forces farther away than our Sun. Pluto energy is mysterious, dark, and VERY transformative.

Astrological Houses

Saturn will be moving into the Water sign of Pisces on March 7th. Pisces energy is watery, mutable, deep, calm, boundless, even psychic. It is, after all, the final sign in the zodiac and considered to be the end of a cycle of reincarnation.

Saturn in Pisces

Saturn in Pisces brings a new dawn for organizations, systems, boundaries, and control. Things must adapt and become more fluid and flexible. Old paradigms are shattering and will continue to do so. Water cleanses and frees all.

Pluto in Aquarius – A 20 month transition

Pluto will be moving into the Air sign of Aquarius on March 23rd. Aquarius energy is connection, communication, the collective, freedom.

Pluto holds no prisoners and beats the drum of intensity. It IS Transformation. Combined with the energy of the upgrading collective consciousness is is heralding the coming of a new time. 

As with all transformative things, nature’s changes come in waves. Pluto will make its initial contact with Aquarius from the end of March until June 2023. It will retreat back into Capricorn where it has been for 15 years. It will remain there for the rest of 2023 and return to Aquarius again in 2024. This retrograde transition out of Capricorn and into Aquarius will take 20 months. Pluto’s return to Aquarius will then last 20 years.

Pluto thus makes its announcement in Aquarius this March for imminent return. Pluto then goes back to Capricorn, the fixed sign of the Goat, and cleans out, reveals, and exposes all that remains to be done there. It’s slow, penetrating, intense transformation complete, it returns to Aquarius in November 2024 to begin.

Cosmological Effects

We are entering uncharted territory. Invigorating, isn’t it? All that humanity has been going through lately, and it’s be quite a lot, is coming to critical mass. 

It is not the doom and gloom that many predict. It IS however, a TRANSFORMATION. Many will be energetically prepared for this. We have, after all, been preparing for this change, The Age of Aquarius, for quite some time now. 

Those that will have the most difficult time are ones that cling to outdated and limiting structures of power and control. Don’t underestimate the acts of desperation to maintain control over others. Fear, confusion, divisiveness are the blunt tools of the past.

Themes to watch are free speech and AI. The legit concerns of Artificial Intelligence and Deepfakes negative impact on humanity are more than a cautionary tale. Untethering oneself from the hypnotic dependency of digital life is of upmost importance. Seeking out what’s real. Getting out in nature. Being in your body. Analog living. Getting lost in a digital landscape is a trap.

This is a new era. Things might get gnarly in the transformation but remember, unity, humanity, the Earth, and the collective soul of peace is what seeks to emerge here. And it will. Absolutely. And so it is.
