One of the things on my list of things to talk about is the imminent transit of Pluto at 29 degrees, or the anaretic degree of Capricorn.
This will mark the beginning of the transition from Pluto in Capricorn, where it has been transiting since 2008, to the transit of Aquarius, which will officially commence on March 23 of this year, so very soon.
Pluto hits 29 degrees of Capricorn on February 11 and then makes its first ingress into Aquarius on March 23.
Now why is this significant?
The anaretic degree, or the 29th degree, of any sign, is considered to be extra potent because the energies reach a culmination before they shift to the next sign and start a whole new cycle in that new sign.
So for example, people who have natal planets or points at 29 degrees tend to have fairly dramatic experiences pertaining to those points and their characteristics.
Now, as I said, Pluto has been transiting Capricorn since the beginning of 2008, so roughly 15 years. And Pluto shifting signs is a big deal because it takes Pluto 248 years to orbit around the Sun. The transit of Pluto through Aquarius will be roughly 20 years.
This has been on my mind because I just have always sensed that this was a big deal. Pluto at 29 degrees is a big deal, but Pluto also shifting into Aquarius is a very big deal.
Now, the actual transition from Pluto and Capricorn into Pluto and Aquarius will occur starting in March right up through November of 2024, because Pluto will retrograde, or from our perspective appear to go backwards, several times between now and then. It’ll finally settle in into Aquarius more permanently in November of 2024 all the way through January of 2044.
So as I said this was on my list of things to talk about soon and then when I woke this morning I had had a very strong urge or impression intuitively to jump on it.
Now the last time Pluto was at 29 degrees of Capricorn was 1777 and 1778. That kind of puts it in perspective how big of a deal this is. And of course, what occurred around that time was the American Revolution. The American Revolution is conceivably one of the most important things that has happened geopolitically in human history. The rise of America has completely reshaped the world.
But I do want to draw your attention to what’s occurring here now or about to occur in a couple weeks, because it’s very exciting. We are living in a very historic time when the seeds of very profound and far-reaching changes are being planted. We may not fully appreciate this point in history until we look back at it several generations from now possibly.
Now the way I perceive this is that I see this as a karmic reckoning, a comeuppance as it were.
Pluto in Capricorn has really been drawing our attention to how power has been concentrated in the hands of a few individuals, the plutocrats, that’s Pluto, as well as corporations and various government and institutional entities. Dark money, dark power, the patriarchy, the oppression of the masses, corruption, reactionary and conservative forces, the whole concern around fascism and authoritarianism that we’ve been dealing with, populism, voter suppression, crazy tax cuts for plutocrats, rampant and unhinged conspiracy theories, corruption in the judiciary being exposed, violent insurrections and coups, abuses of power, lying, cheating… you know, all that stuff we’ve been experiencing. These crazy abuses of power and literally off the charts kind of stuff. Like if we look at the former American administration under 45, it’ll go down as one of the most insane and nuts administrations in US history, if not the most insane. And we have also seen tremendous wealth concentration in the hands of a few, literally a few tax-dodging billionaires.
So when Pluto gets to the final degrees of a sign, there tends to be a reckoning or comeuppance with respect to the issues that were being brought to our attention through the qualities of that sign. Think of it as a purge, not necessarily pleasant, but sometimes needed. And already we’ve been seeing a lot of people starting to be investigated and prosecuted and all kinds of underhanded crimes coming to light within the realms of power around the world. So watch for a lot of major developments in this time span.
The first ingress of Pluto in Aquarius will be from March 23rd until June 11th of 2023. This is really historic stuff.
You know, when Pluto first entered Capricorn, almost immediately we had the 2007-2008 financial crisis, which, if it had not been for significant intervention on the part of the US government, we would have gone into a global depression, the likes of which have not been seen since the 1930s. You know, that is historic.
We are now going to start seeing that energy come into Aquarius and culminate in Capricorn as I’ve been explaining. So just pay attention.
Ideally, like, I would love to just have lots of free time so I could just sort of sit and observe this period. And I’ll mention this as well, and I think I’ve said it before, but I have, you know, studied astrology for decades, and I have been saying for many, many years, I want to be here when Pluto goes into Aquarius. And that is two months from now. Finally.
Anyway, stay tuned, grab some popcorn, watch this shift of energy go from Earth to air, and all of these new issues are going to, things are going to change very quickly and dramatically. I’ve been putting some graphs on the screen which give you all the dates, and I’ll put a link to my Pluto and Aquarius episode there as well in the description of this episode so that you can check that out.
So this is a very exciting and dramatic time, and I’ve also been feeling this looming really big, deep energy of change that’s really kind of a little bit hard to pinpoint or decipher because we’re not quite in it. I’ve been feeling it energetically for several months now, but the fireworks have yet to begin.
So stay tuned and take care and I’ll talk to you soon.
Welcome to Aquarian Diary, where we discuss issues around the emerging Age of Aquarius. I’m your host John Irving. Thank you for joining me.
Greetings all. It is October 3rd 2022.
On February 14th of this year I published one of my most time intensive videos to produce titled Pluto in Aquarius – Dawn of Global Consciousness. That episode was almost an hour long and at that time I was quite concerned about producing an episode that would be too lengthy. I felt like an hour was pushing it, so I didn’t go into a lot of detail about the darker or more challenging side of Pluto transiting Aquarius, and I want to do that here.
As I said I went into a fair amount of detail about how Pluto transiting Aquarius, commencing in 2023 through 2044, was going to affect society and our experience, and I also discussed how it had been manifesting as it transited Capricorn, which is what we’re experiencing right now. So I’m not going to revisit all of that detail here, obviously that would be redundant. So I strongly encourage you to listen to that episode prior to listening to this one, if you haven’t already. I’ll put a link to it in the description of this episode.
Now during this over 20-year transit there will of course be many other transits occurring during that time any one of which if it’s significant could have dramatic implications in the world so don’t think that Pluto transiting Aquarius is the only thing that’s going to be going on. There is always a constantly changing astrological climate, so to speak, at play. So this will just be one of the important backdrops to all of that, one of the major themes.
In brief the way Pluto works is that it will, through experiences and awareness, draw your attention to wherever there is darkness. Darkness meaning things like trauma, fear, grief, anger, resentment, empowerment versus disempowerment, control, domination… those kinds of things. So when people are going through a significant Pluto transit, and they happen to know anything about astrology, some fear around that can arise because you know you’re dealing with darker aspects of yourself. And we all have them.
If you have Karma whatsoever, or you need to incarnate here, I would argue that you have darkness that needs to be healed, resolved, understood, integrated or whatever. And I myself, because I’ve been here for a reasonably long time, have had several major Pluto transits. And also because I am generally engaged in doing spiritual work, I deliberately and consciously make an effort to do my shadow work. (Shadow work: Pluto.) And as a result I have some familiarity and experience of dealing with the kinds of issues that Pluto will put in your face when you go through a challenging Pluto Transit. And Pluto is so intense and deep and powerful that you can’t really avoid, you know, dealing with whatever comes up. If you don’t confront it consciously and deliberately it’ll be put into your experience – and sometimes quite dramatically – through outer events that seem to be conspiring against you. In fact, what Pluto is trying to do is to get you to purge your darkness. They can be extremely difficult in challenging transits but they can also be the most enlightening and the most liberating transits, if you work with these energies.
For example, I had Pluto square my Moon for several years. Pluto is a very slow moving Planet. Its orbit is roughly 248 years. So generally transits to personal planets or points can take several years to transpire. And when Pluto squared my Moon it brought to my awareness a tremendous amount of subconscious stuff that at times was shocking because I wasn’t even aware that I had all of that stuff within me. And some of it can be kind of dark, you know. And that’s Pluto’s role: Lord of the Underworld. And it can manifest in your outward experience as well, where aspects of your life can go through dramatic and significant changes.
So, so far I’ve just given you kind of a brief synopsis or overview of why Plutonian transits are so powerful, and deep, and significant. And if it’s transiting a house it can take many years to transit through one of your houses in your chart. Transits to planets or points, like I said, generally take a few years depending on retrogrades and so on.
And so now globally we’ve been dealing with Pluto transiting Capricorn. And Capricorn rules the structures, and governance, and institutions, and power centers of our society. And we have been seeing how many of those aspects of society, and our governance, and things like that – and corporate realms – we have been seeing how many of them are corrupt, defunct, out of step with current reality. There have been abuses of power that are just obscene. I mean Putin’s invasion of Ukraine is a great example. It’s just completely over the top.
The benefit to all this though is that it’s showing us where we need to rejuvenate, restore, revisit, revise and update a lot of those structures of our world. New policies. How do we prevent these kinds of things from happening? How do we stop idiots like Putin from even being in a position to do what he’s doing? And it’ll take many years to integrate all that stuff. But as Pluto transits Capricorn we’re becoming extremely aware of all of the dark aspects of those areas of life so that we can transform and heal them. Pluto is often described as being like the Phoenix that rises from the flames of destruction. So we destroy all of these defunct and decrepit means of governance, and leadership, and authority, and then we renew them. And they get to be born again in a much better, healthier way. It’s kind of like clearing out the deadwood. if you’ve ever pruned a tree it can look quite scary. But then after a year or two it is amazing how much new growth comes back. And some trees and shrubs really benefit from a good pruning, when you know what you’re doing. That’s the positive side of all this. You know, we’re still in the middle of all this crazy insanity so we haven’t yet seen – and we probably won’t for years yet – but we haven’t yet seen the benefit of these horrible experiences. These very challenging and difficult experiences.
So now Aquarius, or the 11th house, where Pluto is going to begin transiting in 2023… it’ll make some forays into Aquarius and then it’ll retrograde back into Capricorn. And so this transition from Capricorn into Aquarius is going to take about a year and a half or so until Pluto finally settles in there. But we’ll start to get a sense of how this is going to play out fairly quickly. Now I’m using the house and the sign interchangeably here, they are not exactly the same thing. But for the purposes of this exercise it’ll suffice. This isn’t an astrology class.
And Aquarius, the 11th house, is very different energy from the tenth. The tenth is these structures and institutions and the 11th or Aquarius is how society and the people benefit from all of the stuff that precedes it, because societies and people are actually more important than institutions and power brokers, and stuff like that. Aquarius is really about all of us. And in the contemporary context it literally means all of us in the sense that it’s global. And I have also talked a lot about this Age of Aquarius and how that’s going to play out. It’s about society and egalitarianism. Ultimately part of this Pluto transiting Aquarius though is going to be showing us how those areas of life and those areas of our society are defunct and decrepit. We’re going to become aware of how things are broken or how things are not valid or in the highest good of all. Or that where things aren’t egalitarian. So we’re probably going to very quickly start to become aware of where corruption exists within the context of broader societal values and human rights. And how some nations hoard while others are starving. I mean think about all the humanitarian stuff, right? I mean ideally everything we’re doing really is about, or should be about, making a better world for everybody. But along the way power, and wealth, and resources, and influence gets corrupted because it gets concentrated in the hands of a few. That doesn’t really fit into the Aquarian energy at all. And so all of that stuff, wherever things are broken, wherever things, like I said, are defunct, or limited, or need to be renewed… or destroyed so that we can build better systems.
We’re going to start thinking about and questioning why are things the way they are? What is preventing us from having a truly egalitarian world? Why do people have to pay for what are effectively essential things? I’m just making things up but… to give you some food for thought… but why do people have to pay for things that are essential for survival? That could be food, water, medicine, health care, education… Wherever there is a lack of egalitarianism that stuff is going to be put in our faces very powerfully, directly and probably dramatically. So organizations like the United Nations or other humanitarian organizations, or the policies of governments, the hoarding of power of wealth, of influence, how we don’t act in each other’s highest good, all of that stuff is going to become very apparent to us. And it’s going to need to be addressed. And at times we’re probably going to be shocked by what we see about how corrupt and unfair things are. But the benefit of that is that we will then get to – during this transit through 2044 – fix all that stuff, and make it better… make it work.
The way this kind of works is that if we don’t do the work, if we don’t transform those things in the way that meshes with the energies of Aquarius, we’re going to have some real problems. Like you can’t be in resistance to this energy or it can become very destructive. But we have quite a bit of time to do this.
So those of us, and I really believe, it seems to me, that many of the people who listen to me are very egalitarian, very high-minded, sincere and spiritual seekers and thinkers, we really all have this almost kind of corny vision of the world and how how it should be. But I think that’s rooted in our connection with our spiritual higher selves because on the spiritual dimension there is no separation, or need, or lack… we all are equal and we all have everything we need to exist. And we want to see that manifested here on Earth. And that’s what we’re going to be going through, is what is limiting us, what’s blocking us, what’s interfering with us, what is causing pain and suffering. And, you know, like the fact that people are starving when there’s more than enough food for everyone on the planet it… it’s obscene and it’s stupid and it’s ridiculous. It’s… it’s really gross, Right? When you think about it. So that’s the kind of stuff we’re going to be dealing with, is all the darkness that doesn’t reflect those kinds of higher Aquarian ideals.
Now Aquarius also deals with things like communication and technology. For example, I would not be in the least bit surprised if we were to find out that the extent of government surveillance and logging of our digital footprints is far more extensive and creepy than we already know. And what we know already is very Orwellian. So we will probably become aware of stuff about, you know, things like social media and technology and how it may harm us in some ways. Well we’re already kind of aware of that but I would say that those sectors are going to be kind of in for a bruising. If they aren’t really serving the highest good of all, and if they are actually consciously, or knowingly, or at least aware of the fact, that their methodologies are harming people. That’s not to say they shouldn’t exist. It’s just to say that their values will be questioned and they may need to make a lot of adjustments. Now there may be some companies out there, tech companies, who are actually motivated by very high ideals. And they will rise to the top. Their energies will flow very powerfully. So we could see a lot of changes in the area of technology and Communications and the internet.
The 11th house also covers hopes, and dreams, and wishes. We can expect that in many ways we will collectively experience a reality check and become clear about what our true motivations are, and whether they are in the collective highest good or not. And this may be rather painful and difficult as we come to realize what actually motivates us… whether it’s sustainable, desirable, or realistic. But by the time this transit is through we will likely have transformed our ambitions and desires fairly dramatically. And from my perspective this is something that we need to do desperately because the path that we have been on is literally unsustainable. Again I’ve talked a lot about that kind of stuff in the Pluto and Aquarius – Dawn of Global Consciousness video. so I don’t really want to go into that here.
Aquarius can also be aloof and detached… more mental than heart oriented. So, as I discussed in my prior episode on this topic, there can be issues with not being heart centered. Leading to things like technocratic ways of handling problems. I just want to, like I said, make you aware of of the drama and how Pluto will force us to do the shadow work that relates to Aquarian and 11th house kind of issues. It’s going to be very exciting.
Now, like I said, I don’t fear shadow work. I personally confront it very directly and head on because I think that we grow and evolve very quickly when we do that. When we don’t try and pretend that we don’t have the shadow stuff to do, and that we take responsibility for it. I want to get it out of the way so that I can have a more enlightened experience. But there will be people who will be in resistance to this. And there will be people who are moving society forward in a positive way with respect to 11th house and Aquarian principles. And those people are going to become fairly prominent in a positive way. The people who are doing the very good social and egalitarian type work – and who are affiliated with Aquarian type causes – are going to come into much more prominence.
We will also see the media starting to reflect and discuss and talk about Aquarian type values. It’s just like this energy comes into our global consciousness on a mundane level. “Mundane” is the term we use when we speak about astrology and how it affects the world, as opposed to us personally. And so on a mundane level we’re going to see all of these kinds of energies and influences come into play much more broadly. The shift can be such that you don’t even recognize it happening. It just kind of takes place and sometimes you need to look at it in hindsight before you can really fully appreciate it.
But yeah, the darkness is going to be exposing all of the unconscious ways in which Aquarian and Eleventh House values are corrupted or distorted. So there you go.
Thanks for everything! I look forward to speaking with you again soon.
This is a transcript of an episode of Aquarian Diary I published on September 17, 2022. The full episode title is:
Swords vs Torches: November 8, 2022 Full Lunar Eclipse, the US Midterm Elections and the Timeline Split.
Welcome to Aquarian Diary where we discuss issues around the emerging Age of Aquarius. I’m your host John Irving. Thank you for joining me.
Greetings all it is Saturday September 17th, 2022.
This is incredibly fascinating and interesting and dramatic, what I want to talk about here.
So Wednesday night – late Wednesday night – which was the 14th of September – after spiritual practice I just had this sudden very short but dramatic download. And it went like this. I got that there was a big shift coming soon, a major shift. I asked when. The answer was November. And then I got to try and keep myself in a positive state, between now and then as much as possible, because I want to make this shift that’s going to occur. Implying that there is a split – two courses, two paths, and I want to take the higher path. I always have been working towards that for many years.
So I was like whoa – this is intense. And I thought I should post something about this, and then I hesitated because of course my ego, my intellect, was saying well what if you’re wrong? So then Friday September 16th late at night I post on my community tab about what happened and explaining this big shift. Just because I, in the past, have hesitated to do these kinds of things and then later on they proved to be right and I regret not commenting about it or sharing it.
So I was in the mood and I was just kind of like what the hell, I’m putting it out there. And I asked people to let me know if they had come across any other sources who were saying something similar because this is quite dramatic. And of course, I have also done a whole episode titled The Great 2020’s Timeline Split which kind of talked about what Dolores Cannon spoke about through her work, where there would be this split, this timeline split, that would occur in the early 2020’s.
Now I haven’t really been paying much attention to the mundane astrology, or the astrology that’s going on for the world right now, just because I’ve been really busy. And there’s been so much coming up in my own spiritual work that it has kept me more than preoccupied. The amount of stuff that’s been coming up for me that I’ve been dealing with lately has just been like it’s incredible. Day to day. So yeah I posted on my community tab about this event that I foresee or was told about occurring in November.
And then this morning, September 17th, Saturday early morning, I wake up early and I look more closely at the astrology. And oh my God there’s this eclipse coming up, this full lunar eclipse in Taurus, that is occurring on November 8th, which happens to be the exact same day as the US midterm elections. Now I knew about this but it was kind of in the back of my mind. So this morning I look more closely at this eclipse and I’m like oh my God this is a really powerful eclipse.
The way eclipses work is that we kind of experience them or start to feel them up to three months in advance and then it takes up to six months for for all these energies to be integrated. A full lunar eclipse is basically a full Moon on steroids because what’s happening is that the Sun and the Moon are in close proximity to the lunar nodes that are transiting, and that’s what makes an eclipse. So like I said, a full Moon on steroids.
The full Moon is closely aligned with the North Node in this case, in Taurus. And the South Node and Sun are in Scorpio. Now in this case in Scorpio or aligned with the Sun and the South Node is Mercury and Venus. And very closely conjunct with the North Node and the Moon in Taurus is Uranus which is squaring Saturn in Aquarius.
I could do a whole hour-long episode just on this eclipse. That’s not really my intent. I’ll give you the summary of it like this… We have like a super moon, super full moon, in Taurus. And Taurus rules things like our values and it is often related to possessions and things that we own. And property and money and real estate. Because that’s how we materially express our values is through our property. That’s why it’s related to values. It’s ruled by Venus (Taurus).
In Scorpio where all this South Node stuff is going on, with the Sun and Mercury and Venus. Scorpio is the most intense, by far, of the zodiac signs because it deals with a lot of, often, a lot of drama that is interpersonally related. Because relationships are like the stage on which we confront other people and other people confront us, about our psychology, and ultimately how we perceive the world. So there can be a lot of drama in Scorpio around interpersonal relationships. Scorpio follows the sign of Libra and Libra is where we form close intimate relationships with people. So Scorpio is kind of the battleground for relationships. And a lot of our relationship behavior is governed by past lives and traumas and things that have happened to us that we have to process, or the shadow work that we have to do, and it’s a dramatic energy.
So Uranus is within a degree of this full Moon lunar eclipse. And Uranus can break up, if not shatter, existing structures and ways of being, and ways of thinking and paradigms and realities and relationships. If people go through a major hard Uranus transit often there can be a sudden and dramatic break with the past and it seems to be coming from the outside like there are forces that cause our whole reality to shift suddenly and dramatically. And it can happen very quickly. Like on a specific date something will happen and you weren’t expecting it. It’s almost always never fully expected or appreciated until it happens. It can come out of the blue.
And so this energy is being hugely amplified by this full Moon lunar eclipse. So something dramatic and major is going to shift and it’s going to be big, and it will forever change… it’ll be like a course-changing event. A pinpoint in time where suddenly everything is different. And it’ll be something that nobody really fully expected or anticipated, or even possibly imagined.
That full lunar eclipse that’s conjunct Uranus and Taurus is squaring Saturn in Aquarius. And Saturn – and especially because it’s in Aquarius – Aquarius governs society and societal level stuff. And Saturn represents the institutions and structures that we have created, and the leadership… you know things like government, governmental leaders, politicians, banks, large significant institutions that affect society, that tend to be rigid and structured. Because they need to persist over many years, if not even generations, because they have to be reliable. But in this case Uranus is coming in and delivering a sharp square to those structures and institutions and rigid sets of beliefs that have served us because it’s time for them to really be changed. And they need almost like a lightning bolt level blast to break them up to change those structures. Because on some level they are no longer serving us or they’ve become obsolete or redundant or they need to be dramatically changed or revolutionized.
Now Uranus is the ruling planet of Aquarius and Uranus is going to be playing a huge… this kind of energy is going to be playing a huge role in the Aquarian Age. And I’ve done a whole video on that which I really get into in the one called Pluto in Aquarius, Dawn of Global Consciousness, so I’m not going to go into that in a great level of detail here. The main thing is is that what we can expect is this deals with our values. It may manifest as shifts in reality that alter our understanding of what we value and literally the physical material reflection of that in banking and finance and institutions and real estate and property. And on the other side of the equation is all of the psychology and the trauma and the intense experiences that kind of shape our reality. The South Node, Mercury the Sun and Venus are all in opposition to this full Moon.
Again I could spend an hour at least talking about this. But the main point is just that there is going to be… this is extremely dramatic. It’s occurring on the same day as the US midterm elections which will define whether or not America becomes a fascist autocracy, if not theocracy, a criminally organized government which would totally change the history of planet earth, or not. And this connects to the download that I got on Wednesday night about this huge shift coming because Uranus represents dramatic and sudden shifts and departures, if not splits. Splits! Think of timeline splits. And these highly amplified energies of this full Moon lunar eclipse are challenging the status quo that governs society. It’s a direct challenge.
Amazingly the Sabian symbol for 16 degrees of Taurus, where this lunar eclipse is occurring, this powerful lunar eclipse, reads “A symbolic battle between swords and torches.” To me swords represent truth (strong energy) and torches is fire which wants to burn things down. It’s a nihilism basically. And this image of swords versus torches perfectly describes what’s going on in the world. Reason and truth versus passion and anger and fire and destruction. You couldn’t make this up. It’s just incredible.
Now the Sabian symbols are very subject to interpretation. You will find a lot of various interpretations for these symbols and they can vary a lot. So that’s my interpretation based on the context politically and socially right now, and the major struggles that we are involved in and encountering. From my perspective we really are at a critical juncture in a fight between light and dark, good and evil, right and wrong, what’s best for everyone and what’s best for some people, etc. So again this is my interpretation. You may interpret it differently.
Now a few months later Pluto will move into Aquarius. Again see my episode on Pluto in Aquarius. I’ll link some of this in the description. But incredibly I have this download. I haven’t been paying attention to the astrology, I look at the astrology and go like holy crap it’s right there. It’s November 8th. And I said last night on my community tab that this was going to occur in November and I haven’t been paying attention to the astrology but it’s all right there.
Now the next solar eclipse [after November]… the next eclipse will be a solar eclipse and that is going to be occurring on April 20th of 2023. This is just after Pluto has moved into Aquarius. Pluto is at zero degrees Aquarius at this point, for the first time in like 250 years. This eclipse on April 20th is going to be at 29° 50′ of Aries. That is an Anaretic degree, an extremely potent and powerful degree of Aries. And Aries is a powerful sign to begin with, it’s Cardinal. And it is the sign of new beginnings. So the next solar eclipse is at literally the very, very, very end of Aries. That’s going to be extremely powerful too. That’s new beginnings.
But also see my episode that I did on the 2020’s timeline split. Again I’ll link that in the description. This to me is just all astonishing because like I said I had this download but I didn’t connect it to the astrology because I hadn’t really looked at this November eclipse. I don’t know why I’ve just been really busy and preoccupied and I haven’t had a lot of time to record lately. It’s astonishing.
I was shown about a week ago – this is before I had the download about November – I was shown very clearly how when I concentrate on all this negative stuff that’s happening in the world how it shifts my consciousness and my energetic state. I’m insatiably curious about what’s happening in the world so you know I do read. And I want to know what’s happening and why. But it was kind of a warning just to manage that carefully. You want to, I think, maintain a positive state as much as possible leading up to November. And probably the the point in time will be November 8th. And that might be because we want to be in a higher state to make this shift into the higher timeline. If we’re going to go through a timeline split, and my download is right, and the astrology is right, this is when it’s going to happen. November 8th 2022. Mark your calendars. Tell the people that you love to do their shadow work, to clear themselves.
In my spiritual practice lately – this has just come up for me intuitively over the past month or so – but I’ve been doing a lot of forgiving and letting go of people and the past and past events past traumas just letting go of the past. I recently did a cord cutting which I hadn’t done in a very long time that was extremely powerful. I felt a huge shift in my energy. Let go of as much as you can. Lighten your load.
And I believe I was told Wednesday night about this… they were basically warning me, not warning me like I’m not in danger, but just saying, you know, this is a very important time. There’s going to be a huge shift in November. Prepare yourself for that and be in the right state of mind.
Dolores Cannon said that we needed to not be in a fear-based paradigm, which I think we can argue that a lot of the people on the right of the political spectrum are very much so. And we also needed to clear our karma in order to make the shift into the higher timeline. I did a video about that just a month or two ago about describing how I, through a lot of intense spiritual work, I had cleared my karma.
I have to say something else as well which is it’s kind of personal but it’s one of the things I’ve been struggling with. You know years ago I thought oh I should do an astrology channel, it’ll be really popular. I could see that coming and then I thought no that would be redundant. To me the thought of doing something to pander to people’s sensibilities or to be popular, with that as my agenda, I honestly find it revolting. I just can’t… I can’t… I couldn’t do it. It wouldn’t be authentic for me.
Like obviously I want to make a difference and I want to reach people and I want to speak the truth and I want to… I would like to be able to say things that are important that make a difference, that make the world a better place. That help us understand what’s happening, that help me understand what’s happening, and to connect with other people of like mind and like spirit.
And I’ve really struggled because obviously I don’t have a lot of viewers and I could – because I know what to do or I know what I should do if that was my agenda – but that is not my agenda. I really don’t give a crap about that. And I think that that is actually a quality of Aquarius. Aquarius does its own thing and it doesn’t really give a crap about what other people think. And in fact I’ve been guided very powerfully not to care about what other people think. Like that’s part of my raison d’etre in this lifetime. Is to just be myself and do my own thing (I’m getting strong energy here).
So yeah, like I said I could do stuff that would be a lot more popular than what I’m doing now but to me it wouldn’t be authentic or it would be pandering to popularity. And that’s not to say that everything that’s popular is garbage, it isn’t. But the truth is is that in all fields more often than not you find the people who are saying or doing the really important things aren’t often the center of attention. The most popular stuff is not necessarily the most important stuff, or the deepest stuff.
Anyway I wanted to express that. I want it to be on the record and I think it’s important for other people to realize that too. The age that we’re moving into is going to be like the most authentic people are going to come to the fore. The ones who are following their true heart and their true inspiration and not really caring too much about whether it’s popular or not.
Oh by the way in a prior episode I said that my twitter handle was AquarianDiary it’s actually @Aquarian_Diary (with an underscore). I post more prolifically there stuff that I’m reading.
I also added a feature to my website at aquariandiary.com where people can basically just join a contact list so that we don’t lose touch if anything major happens or changes with this platform or others. And numerous people have used that, thank you. I’m not going to spam that list in any way it’s just for safe keeping in the event that it’s needed.
Thanks for everything! I appreciate it. And we’ll talk to you soon.
This is a transcript of a an episode I published on my YouTube channel on February 14, 2022.
Welcome to Aquarian Diary where we discuss issues around the emerging Age of Aquarius. I’m your host, John Irving. Thank you for joining me!
Greetings all it is February 14, 2022.
I’ve been working on this for over a week, so please accept my apologies for theinconsist ent audio and recording which you will notice. It’s amazing how much your voice can change hour to hour, and day to day.
But this is a really fascinating subject I am very excited to be able to talk about and share with you. These times that we are in have to be one of the most interesting periods in all of human history. I sincerely hope you find the following interesting enlightening and worthwhile. I am looking forward to returning to more spiritually oriented topics after this episode but this transit of Pluto moving into Aquarius soon is one of the critical components of the extraordinary changes that are occurring at this point in the earth’s history.
Today I want to talk about something that to me is of great significance and importance this has been on my mind for well over 10 years. Anticipating this particular transit or ingress of Pluto into Aquarius which will commence in 2023. Coupled with the great conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn at zero degrees of Aquarius in December of 2020, these transits herald the beginning of a new era. The magnitude and scope of the implications of these transits are extremely significant. To me trying to cover these topics in a condensed form is daunting.
Before I get started I need to make clear that I am not going to be covering every major astrological transit that has occurred in this time period – namely the time period that Pluto was in Capricorn. For example we had a very significant Uranus square Pluto transit, Saturn has been squaring Uranus, we had Saturn and Pluto conjunct in Capricorn, amongst others. It would be very time consuming to cover everything that’s occurred over the past decade or so. However, in the backdrop there’s always which sign Pluto was occupying at the time that shows what themes are up for major or significant transformation, and that is what I will be focusing on here today.
Also when I use terms such as “the powers that be” or “the status quo” they are really just placeholders for world views or paradigms and not necessarily a reference to any specific groups, organizations or individuals.
First of all we need to talk a little bit about the influence or role of Pluto in world affairs. Pluto in its rawest form is like pure power or energy and as it moves through an astrological sign it imbues the qualities of that sign amplifying them, and as far as the world is concerned, bringing those themes or areas to our attention in many profound ways.
Pluto by challenging transit will often bring about periods of metaphorical death rebirth and complete transformation of what it comes in contact with. These periods of crisis can be dramatic and very significant, if not life-altering or destiny altering. As aspects of ourselves, or of states or nations or entities, have to go through a period of significant dissolution before they can be regenerated into something more substantial, whole, meaningful and that is in integrity. It can be akin to a wrecking ball to what is outmoded or no longer valid. Under its influence these periods can be experienced as being very tumultuous and only really actually fully appreciated as being beneficial and transformative with hindsight from some future perspective.
For years I have advised people undergoing Pluto transits to try to not be in resistance to the flow of those energies as being in resistance will make the inevitable process of transformation more difficult and challenging. Pluto’s energies are far too powerful to resist. Unfortunately when I observe what is going on in the world these days I see a tremendous amount of resistance. Thus I expect that this current period will continue to be challenging and tumultuous and even more difficult than it needs to be.
People are desperately clinging to outmoded structures, paradigms and worldviews, and resisting the call to evolve. Those in positions of power and privilege are not readily inclined to release their grip and Saturn is very resistant to change as I will explain shortly.
When we understand Pluto and how it works we can see how it influenced periods of history in various ways. Like I said it can empower people, places and situations and give them a great deal of intensity, for better or for worse. For example many world leaders or very powerful figures in world history have had strongly placed Pluto’s in their natal charts. Although this grants them a lot of power, there is often a significant comeuppance or retribution eventually if they choose to abuse that power. This can lead to dramatic and sometimes very public and humiliating downfalls and the destruction of all that they have aspired to. Pluto can be utterly devastating to an inflated ego which naively and mistakenly believes that it is the source of true power. It has an intensely karmic aspect to it.
When Pluto was in Sagittarius between 1995 and 2008 we saw really the dawn of the internet and global communications. Sagittarius rules all things international as well as philosophy, religion higher education, broadcasting and the media. There were revolutions in publishing, broadcasting, the media and communications technologies, which profoundly changed the world. Without question the dawn of the internet has completely changed every aspect or sphere of human activity. We went from being disparately and periodically connected to being constantly connected and aware of what was going on around the world at any moment in time. The world also saw the darker expression of this energy through religious fanaticism, extremism and fundamentalism, including brutal acts of ideologically motivated terrorism, wars, subjugation and oppression. Also during this time president Bill Clinton brought China into the world trade organization. Some American business interests eagerly imagined a new marketplace of a billion plus consumers for their products. Although that never materialized it set the stage for profound changes in global trade and manufacturing which would mark a critical turning point in human history.
Pluto entered Capricorn in 2008 and will be there roughly until 2024. Traditionally, in mundane astrology, the 10th house rules government, rulers, leaders of governments, kings queens, CEO’s, the seat of power… the top of hierarchical structures. It deals with the nation’s reputation status, credit… the state of the nation in terms of public employment. Saturn – the ruler of Capricorn and the tenth house – governs things like karma, responsibility, duty, obligations, long lasting structures and foundations. The tenth house is where we strive for achievement and status, often through concentrated and deliberate effort over time. It represents the culmination of our efforts to be recognized. To be at the top of the heap, or at least to try. Saturn a very masculine energy. When negatively expressed or aspected, or taken to extremes, can express itself very darkly by being cruel, dominating, repressive, controlling, authoritarian, punitive, rigid, inflexible, demanding, obstinate, restrictive, narrow-minded uncompromising, unforgiving, judgmental, harsh, patriarchal, intolerant, narrow-minded, excessively conservative, fearful, paranoid, defensive, oppressive, reactionary. And of course these attitudes can result in issues with repressed anger and resentment as well as fear of change, or threats to its status, dominance or any perceived threats to conformity or the status quo. To be clear this is not Saturn itself acting in this way it is the individual, entity, group or organization which is expressing the negative aspects of Saturnian energy.
We can see why the combination of the intense powerful and deep energies of Pluto combined with the rigid and controlling energies of Saturn have produced many of the trends we have been observing in recent social and political history. Saturn and Pluto conjuncted in Capricorn in January of 2020. The fact that this occurred in Saturn’s own sign lended great potency and emphasis to this alignment, and especially all themes Saturnian. Although Saturn and Pluto conjunct about every 33 to 38 years this was the first time it had occurred in Capricorn since the year 1518, over 500 years ago.
I made a list of some of the major issues that have come up during this period while Pluto has been transiting Capricorn. This is by no means exhaustive but they certainly fit within the themes one would expect to materialize during such a transit. I will put these items on the screen as well. It’s quite remarkable when you consider it, really.
At the very beginning one of the major events that occurred was the 2008 financial crisis and the bailout of the banks at taxpayer expense – without repercussions for the offenders. Followed by record low interest rates and quantitative easing to stimulate economic activity and avoid a global depression akin to what occurred in the 1930’s.
The election of Barack Obama, which triggered a reactionary and often racially motivated backlash.
The Fukushima nuclear disaster which was a gross regulatory failure.
The Panama Papers which disclosed how wealthy individuals were hiding their assets and wealth in offshore tax shelters.
The Edward Snowden revelations which exposed the absolute extent of government surveillance of all manner of communications.
The geopolitical ascendancy of China – a non-democratic autocratic nation.
The offshoring of manufacturing to countries with cheap labor, minimalist worker rights and environmental regulations.
A dramatic increase in social and political polarization.
The rise of right-wing, illiberal, autocratic and populist leaders.
The erosion of democratic and electoral norms and institutions.
The rise of misinformation and disinformation through social media and other platforms including some major news networks devoted to right-wing ideologies.
Rates of income and wealth disparity reached obscene levels during this period where a handful of billionaires own as much wealth as half of the world’s population.
The increasing consolidation of many key business sectors by a small number of corporate entities.
The specter of fascism, racism and right-wing extremism.
Brexit, which was a populist backlash largely based on misinformation and wishful thinking.
Foreign actors interfering with and undermining liberal democracies.
A significant lack of action to combat the climate change and global environmental crisis. It was for the most part business as usual despite growing alarm and consensus on the part of the world’s scientists and esteemed scientific bodies.
Displacement and disruption due to changing climatic patterns and severe weather events.
The adoption of the term anthropocene to define a new geologic epoch in earth’s planetary history in which human activity and its byproducts are the dominant factor or influence.
Increasingly extremist social and political movements with primarily caucasian right-wing domestic threats identified as a dominant concern.
An alarming erosion and undermining of democratic institutions protocols and safeguards by illiberal forces.
Significant efforts to suppress and interfere with voting access rights and privileges.
Insurrectionists attempted to overthrow democratically elected governments.
Scientists, academics, experts, journalists, public officials and even private citizens were harassed, attacked and intimidated in the so-called culture wars.
A global pandemic on a scale not seen in a hundred years affecting trade, supply chains, employment and living routines.
Social unrest due to pandemic protocols and medical misinformation. The rise of the anti-vaxxer movement.
Increasing tensions between the United States and China and the United States, Europe and Russia.
Growing concerns about significant bubbles in the stock market and real estate markets triggered by historically low interest rates.
Historic levels of inflation resulting in spiraling costs of living particularly for those with marginal incomes, which fueled resentment even further.
Legitimate concerns about social breakdowns and even civil war in leading democracies, particularly in America.
Increasing concerns about the state of the global economy due to the aforementioned issues.
And so while Pluto has been transiting through Capricorn we have become very aware of how these areas of life have been influencing us, how they’ve been abused – because again Pluto is power and power can be easily corrupted. Even if there are karmic consequences for that they may not be experienced immediately. So Pluto has been enhancing all of these areas of life. We’ve all been witnessing this play out through these years commencing in 2008 and we’ve all become very aware of the potential for these powers to be misused and then therefore how those areas of society and life need to be renewed, regenerated or reformed.
Now when Pluto goes into Aquarius this is in a completely different energy and area of life that will be emphasized. Aquarius rules the 11th house which is a very different energy. It is fixed air versus cardinal earth. Its modern ruler is Uranus, its traditional ruler is Saturn (which never made sense to me). Uranus is the planet of change revolution and innovation. It breaks up stagnant or outmoded or redundant structures or patterns and it can do so quite dramatically.
Aquarius is visionary, egalitarian, future-oriented, progressive, independent, individualistic, logical, rational, and intelligent. It disdains hypocrisy and injustice and is willing to make sacrifices for core beliefs or principles. Aquarians are rebellious and will not accept arbitrary power or authority at face value. Respect must be earned and maintained. They do not adhere to dogma for the sake of dogma, or tradition alone. This does not bode well for institutions such as organized religion or people wedded to archaic dogmatic ideologies, for example, which are legacies of the Piscean Age energies.
The 11th house, the house of Aquarius and Uranus, governs society at large, the people, community, community engagement, involvement and collaboration. Organizations that deal with humanitarian and egalitarian issues that deal with the transformation and evolution of society. So we can see that the energies of the 11th house are very different. The 10th house deals with power and power structures, and the attempt to consolidate and impose power. Whereas the 11th house seeks to revolutionize systems and is more concerned with distributing power and the welfare of society and the people. Very, very different energies.
Pluto’s orbit is elliptical – it will spend shorter or longer periods of time in each sign depending on where it is so it’s going to be in Aquarius for almost 20 years commencing in 2023 all the way through 2044. And we can think of what this transit will herald as the dawn of collective consciousness or global consciousness. Where we extend beyond the boundaries of our own limited reality and take into account brighter societal implications and the welfare of others. It is not prone to things like conspiracy theories or BS because that’s just not what Aquarius is all about. It’s very rational, very intelligent, scientifically oriented, forward-looking. It’s not about just immediate benefit or gain, or like I said the consolidation of power. It will make sacrifices for the betterment of society.
I briefly mentioned the conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn in December of 2020. Now that’s significant because those conjunctions occur roughly every 20 years. But since 1802 these Great Conjunctions have been occurring in earth signs and the Great Conjunction in December of 2020 was one of the first conjunctions in air signs. And that pattern will now continue uninterrupted in air signs for almost 200 years, the last one occurring in 2199. These conjunctions of Jupiter and Saturn mark very significant periods of time. The previous cycle of Jupiter and Saturn in air signs ended in the year 1405, some 600 years ago. The collective energy is shifting more from earth to air, and air is a mental, intellectual or rational energy.
We have Pluto soon to move into Aquarius where it’ll transform society from a very different perspective than it has while it was in Capricorn. This will have very profound implications for humanity. I will put all of these dates in greater detail on the screen. The first ingress or the first time that Pluto will go into Aquarius will be on March 23, 2023 through June 11 of 2023. It will retrograde back into Capricorn and then it’ll move into Aquarius again in January of 2024 through September of 2024 and then it will move more permanently into Aquarius in November of 2024 all the way through 2043.
A couple notable historical events in history that occurred the last time that Pluto was in Aquarius were the French Revolution in 1789 and the American revolution of 1776. In the early 1780’s Massachusetts abolished slavery.
As I’ve said Aquarius is very revolutionary energy and it doesn’t put up with or abuses of power, authority or idiocy. Those who will be welcome energies indeed, from our perspective now. When Pluto goes into Aquarius in 2023 we will start to see people in a sense revolt against abusive power structures that put power into the hands of a few people versus the masses. That can also apply to any other tyrannical or abusive power structures, could be corporate could be in banking or finance or with industries that are abusive.
Aquarian energy would also be much more concerned about environmental issues, human rights issues and justice and fairness for all. So we can expect to see those who hold those kinds of energies or views to become much more prominent than the sort of patriarchal top-down power structures we have been confronted with so intensely over recent years. And let’s face it there are many aspects of society that are in profound need of those kinds of transformational energies. The status quo or the power structures that seem to be controlling us at this point in time are literally unsustainable for our planet.
Uranus can bring sharp and sudden and dramatic shifts in your life or in the course of your life if you have a strong Uranus transit affecting your natal chart. And they can be very surprising and dramatic, like I said. So I expect that when we see Pluto begin to move into Aquarius we will see very sharp and sudden and dramatic actions and reactions to outmoded forms of control and power. Aquarius is not about the me, it’s about the us.
There’s a lot of interesting things to consider here because Uranus can be very revolutionary and challenging to existing structures – those that are corrupt or defunct. Uranus is so different that is actually tilted on its side, it has a very different rotational axis from any other planet in our solar system.
And like I said it is evidence-based and generally rational. A lot of the issues that we see playing out in the world at the time of this recording are reactionary because I think these institutions and individuals recognize a looming period where they will lose control and their privilege with it. Now of course we have the technology so that we can all be connected and aware of everything that’s happening around the world, almost in real time. So there is no way to fully control or put that genie back in the bottle. There will be kind of a collective uprising against those forms of tyrannical control and power and dominance.
One of the truisms about Uranus is that because it can be so surprising is that we can never fully predict how it will play out. There always seems to be some kind of element of events that we didn’t anticipate, that are surprising to us. It can often deal with things that are outside of her beyond our experience or awareness and that are only appreciated in hindsight after events have transpired.
I would anticipate events to occur that are outside of our past experience. If there was a time where humanity was going to encounter other forms of intelligent life, for example, this would be when it would occur. That would be something that is radically outside of our past experience and these energies would be conducive to things like that. The 11th house governs society and Uranus can completely change the way we understand our role in society and how we are connected to other beings even possibly beyond our own earth. If humanity is going to go beyond the boundaries of our planetary limitations this would be the time where at the very least those seeds would be planted.
What follows is conjecture on my part, of course. However, if what I suggest do not fully materialize I do believe that many of these changes or concepts will at least begin to germinate during this period.
I would anticipate very significant revolutions in the area of science and technology.
Using my imagination some areas where we may see some significant or revolutionary advancements include:
New forms of non-polluting renewable energy.
New forms of energy which allow people to produce their own energy independent of centralized energy sources (off-grid so-to-speak).
Green energy and distributed, decentralized energy production and significant advancements in how we store energy – battery technology and the like.
The end of the fossil fuel era and the transition to electric vehicles and transportation.
Significantly more advanced forms of transportation which allow us to traverse the globe more efficiently and quickly.
Significant advancements in computing and quantum computing.
Decentralized communications, telecommunications and networking.
Significant advancements in all the sciences and engineering, including new materials.
Significant advancements in artificial intelligence and robotics, emancipating people from the drudgery of routine labor so they can focus on more intellectual pursuits.
Significant advancements in gene therapy as a form of medicine and healing as well as a means of combating chronic and contagious diseases and illnesses.
The end of paper currency and the widespread use of some form of digital currency – probably sanctioned by government
The adoption and implementation of some form of universal basic income, socialized medicine and health care.
More readily accessible and affordable higher education.
Stricter laws and regulations concerning corporate rights versus individual or collective rights.
Stricter regulations on corporations versus the rights of the individual or society.
Systems to control or limit the damage caused by disinformation and misinformation including in broadcasting and the media.
Significant advancements with respect to electoral systems – the adoption and implementation of some form of proportional representation as an electoral system versus the archaic first-past-the-post electoral systems many countries still use. As proportional representation – or some form of it – as it yields a much more accurate representation of the will of the people. It is also likely we will see more multi-party systems.
Political campaign finance laws to limit or restrict the rights of corporations to have undue influence over electoral outcomes.
The new economy is likely to become increasingly more knowledge-based.
Greater decentralization of work habits – in other words more freedom to work remotely or from distant locations and probably a shorter work week and greater worker rights.
A general recognition and appreciation for those who are learned or who have high levels of expertise or that are well educated as opposed to the current emphasis on people who are of high status and wealth.
A clamp down on things like predatory lending.
Expanded social safety nets including greater support for child care and child rearing.
Greater recognition for teachers and the important role they play in society (strong chills there, I’ve always… I’ve known quite a few teachers – they really deserve our support).
Much stricter environmental regulations for carbon emissions, pollution, chemicals and the like.
Possible significant advancements with fusion as a form of grid-based energy which is renewable.
And, of course, an emphasis on education and learning which will be lifelong activities.
Overall I expect it to be akin to the Industrial Revolution in scope but this revolution will be a technological, scientific, intellectual and societal revolution. We can also expect to see tremendous political and social reform.
Aquarian energy is completely comfortable with people expressing their unique individuality. That would relate to gender identity through sexual expression and liberation or whether they are of different ethnicity or race or color or culture doesn’t matter. The Aquarius energy welcomes diversity, individuality and unique expression. it will not recognize artificial, dogmatic or irrational boundaries or borders between people be they racial, economic or socio-political. Like I said it has kind of a disdain for patriarchal top-down rules that only exist to serve a structure and not humanity itself.
I would not be surprised to see greater international and global communication and cooperation to address transnational issues such as the climate crisis and the environmental crisis, as well as humanitarian issues such as hunger, poverty, health care and lack of education.
Sustainable agriculture will almost certainly be addressed and probably we will see a shift to more vegetarian eating and less consumption of meat due to its exceptionally high carbon footprint and low yield of calories for energy invested, and its highly inefficient use of vast tracts of land.
Finally I almost certainly think we will see – with a very high degree of certainty – that the astonishing levels of income disparity inequality and unfair taxation will be finally addressed. Fairness will be the mantra. That you can pretty much bank on.
People who have significant points in their natal chart that are in air or fire will probably benefit most from this transit as the energies of Aquarius are more in tune with air and fire.
Leo’s will have Pluto oppose their Sun. Scorpios and Taurus will have Pluto square their Sun. And of course Aquarius will have Pluto conjunct their Sun at some point during this transit (which is a very long transit).
Pluto will be opposing Leo ruled by the Sun so this will present challenges for those who are overly self-oriented, egotistical or narcissistic. It may also affect the way we deal or have to deal with children.
It will be squaring Scorpio so there may be significant issues or changes that need to be made in the areas of psychology, sexuality, reproduction, child rearing, deep interpersonal relationships, mental health and well-being – dealing with trauma, grief and abuse, etc.
As well Pluto will be squaring Taurus, which is ruled by Venus, and relates to issues around property, real estate and money, and the harvest, so there could be issues with food production and availability during this time. And I would not be surprised if we saw major issues with the banking and finance sector at some point during this transit. There could be significant disruptions to our economy the stock market and real estate and things like that. Those areas are all up for very significant change and transformation during this 20-year long period.
I personally feel that this shift of Pluto into Aquarius, in close conjunction to the great Saturn and Jupiter conjunction at the very beginning of Aquarius – literally at zero degrees Aquarius, are hallmarks of the major shifting or stepping stones or turning points or gateways into the age of Aquarius.
Like I said I have been looking forward to this for well over a decade. It’s probably self-evident but if you’ve listened to my videos you can see that i’m very progressive. And I do not really understand or resonate with selfish, self-centered, acquisitive or very materialistic behaviors or patterns or paradigms. This shift of energies into Aquarius would certainly benefit someone with a perspective like mine. And I presume that many of the people who are listening to my channel would be similarly inclined.
We will get a first taste of this at the end of March of 2023 and it’ll take a year and a half for those energies to fully settle in. There’ll be a dance back and forth between Aquarius and Capricorn through 2023 into the latter half of 2024 when the energies fully settle into Aquarius.
Again because Uranus can manifest quickly and dramatically I think we’re going to start to see how this is going to play out very quickly and so those of us who are very concerned about how we’re facing the threat of what appears to be fascism in many regards right now – populism which is based on a lot of lies and disinformation and misinformation – all that kind of crap will be laid to rest very quickly when Pluto moves into Aquarius. It will favor things like democratic socialism and progressivism. As opposed to the rule of the many by the few it’ll be the rule of the many for the many.
So this should really help us deal with, say for example, the environmental crisis, climate change and things like that because Aquarians do not put up with BS and they are very socially responsible and socially concerned and the environment will certainly play a role in that.
This energy will also help us develop technologies that can get us off fossil-fuel-based energy systems or energy systems that are detrimental to our health or welfare or well-being in the long run because it is so socially concerned and aware. It will take a long view of the impacts of industrial activity like that.
This will be tremendously exciting and inspiring and rational… thank God.
I’ve been wanting to produce this for a very long time now. The dramas that have been playing out as a result of Pluto transiting Capricorn will reach a crescendo in particular when Pluto reaches 29 degrees Capricorn – an Anoretic degree. The 29th degree of signs is considered to be a very intense degree because it’s the very last degree of that sign where all of those energies kind of reach a culmination just before a planet moves into the following sign.
Like I said the ingress or when Pluto first moves into Aquarius will be March 23rd of 2023. I’ll put the dates for this on the screen but Pluto will be generally at 29 degrees Capricorn from June until July of 2023, from December of 2023 to January of 2024 and September of 2024 to November of 2024. Again that’s when Pluto will be at 29 degrees Capricorn so we can anticipate some fairly dramatic events around those dates just because of the intensity of both Pluto and the 29th degree or the Anoretic degree.
In fact the last time Pluto will retrograde and then station direct at 29 degrees – again that’s September to November of 2024 – we can anticipate intense or dramatic developments in that time frame. It could even manifest as one last desperate grasp by the powers that be or the status quo to try and maintain or enforce or impose its worldview. Or maybe some very dark and unknown truths come to light at that time which function as the last or final straw or the last nail in the coffin of the status quo or the powers that be. Which then becomes the spark or the fuel which ignites the revolution which will occur when Pluto moves into Aquarius. We shall see.
Now one of the potential downsides of this transit is that Aquarius can be kind of an aloof and detached and sometimes a bit cold sign because they’re very rational and intellectual and they’re a little bit uncomfortable with their emotional side. It all depends on your natal chart and how it’s configured. so there is the potential for doctrines to kind of be imposed upon society in a technocratic kind of way. Most likely left-wing societal structures.
I think that because we will be facing a lot of very significant global challenges – that traditional aspects of society and our economies and so forth are not equipped to deal with – there is that potential of having some kind of a top-down kind of approach to doing things. There could be in that event controls or surveillance over the flow of communications, information and knowledge (which we already have, let’s face it, in the United States, as Snowden revealed to the world.) So I hope we don’t manifest the negative potential of this transit, but it’s something that we should be aware of as this transit approaches.
I will certainly be paying attention to what events transpire during those times when Pluto is at 29 degrees of Capricorn. Pluto will bring to our awareness all of the areas that it touches and put them in our faces so that we can see what is corrupt. So that we can address it and deal with it and then move on.
So often it looks like there are, for example, attempts to control or dominate or impose power or will upon others but this is occurring so that we can see what needs to be fixed essentially or reformed. And so this whole transit of Pluto through Capricorn has really been showing us how our systems of governance and power and leadership are being abused. So that we can reform them or correct them. This whole period from 2008 through 2024 that’s been a major theme globally and for pretty much every country in the world. When Pluto moves into Aquarius is when a lot of those reforms – those needed reforms – where old structures that are no longer actually serving the people will be either obliterated or reformed or new structures will be created that are more in line with the benefit of the masses.
Aquarius will literally fight for its beliefs and if we consider what occurred during the French Revolution and the American Revolution that is quite evident. They will not put up with BS basically and they are willing to lay their lives on the line to make whatever changes are needed. So I would not want to be somebody who is heavily invested in the status quo if that status quo is corrupted or exploitive.
On a spiritual level for those who are so engaged we can anticipate things like being very aware of the collective on an energetic level and this could include psychic phenomenon and telepathy. As we gain the ability to bridge what were formerly impenetrable borders, the boundaries and definitions and limitations of three-dimensional time and space will begin to be dissolved. And I also wouldn’t be surprised if we find that science starts to identify discernibly how some of these mechanisms work. How we are all connected on subtle energetic levels that we formerly did not perceive or understand. So you can expect that like I said what were borders or boundaries between us as individuals and us as collective beings – and even possibly us in relation to other forms of intelligent life in the universe – that those borders or boundaries will be overcome and we will have direct experience that transcend time space and three dimensions. Our understanding and definition of life itself and what is alive, or what is conscious, may also be significantly expanded. Although it’s possible the complete understanding of that may not occur until we are further into the age of Aquarius.
I’m not suggesting that all of humanity is going to experience those kinds of things profoundly but people in the vanguard I certainly think they will. That would be people who are at a more advanced level of spiritual development and consciousness.
All in all tremendously exciting and for those of us who are completely fed up with the paradigms that currently dominate our world. This will be a period of tremendous revolution and the endings of a lot of structures that have limited us in the past. We can anticipate very dramatic and rapid advancements during this time – things that we could not even or did not even predict.
It’s interesting that I am here commenting on this subject – one of the biggest subjects of all I think – I have had my progressed Sun in Aquarius for a few years and I have had Pluto enter my 11th house not too long ago for probably the rest of my life.
So stay tuned. This period that we’re going to be entering in the not too distant future is going to be incredibly powerful.
Again, we’ve got the Pluto moving to 29 degrees Capricorn in 2023 through early 2024 – until it fully settles in at the end of 2024 – until 2044. So this is kind of like the dawn of collective or global consciousness and the end of abusive and corrupted patriarchal power structures.
I’ll leave you with one other thought which I had as I was finishing up editing this and that’s this: I think that nations that resonate with this Aquarian energy with Pluto and Aquarius are the ones that will fare the best in the coming times. Think about that because it’s kind of like being in a group where you don’t fit in. You know you don’t just jive with the energy and you’re really awkward and out of place? That’s kind of what it’ll be like in the world as we move further into this Aquarian energy. Nations and peoples that jive with that energy will probably prosper the most. And the same for people too. I hope you’re one of them.
Thanks so much for spending time with me I look forward to doing it again soon.
This is a transcript of a an episode I published on my YouTube channel on January 10, 2022.
Welcome to Aquarian Diary where we discuss issues around the emerging Age of Aquarius.
I’m your host John Irving.
Thank you for joining me.
Hi guys. It is John here. It is Sunday, January 9, 2022.
I hope everyone had a good holiday season it was very busy around here, hence my absence, and I have certainly had a lot of time to reflect on a lot of things over the past number of weeks.
One of the main things I’ve been thinking about a lot is the USA Pluto return which is coming up soon to its first exact, which will be the first exact that is. When Pluto – transiting Pluto in orbit around the Sun – returns to the exact position it was at the founding of the United States. Which will be exact on February 20, 2022. That’s not very far away – six weeks or so.
Now one of the things so you know I have continued, because I do every day, I read I scan the press – at least those sources that I find to be reliable and rigorous – and one of the things that I have noticed in the past few weeks is the phenomenal number of articles by well-informed scholars, journalists and commentators questioning the possibility of a civil war in the United States. Whether… whether that is imminent or even possible.
Now one of the things that’s remarkable about this is the quality of the journalism or commentary on this subject. And if we think about this, and what is occurring, uh… if anybody had sort of even pondered this out loud – I don’t know 10 years ago or so – they would have people would have just laughed at them and said they were crazy. But the people who are questioning this right now are serious thinkers (chills right now).
So I find that this is occurring at this point in time to be extremely remarkable because of the astrology and also because of everything else that’s happening in the world. We have this global pandemic on a scale not seen in over 100 years.
Just to be clear this is occurring to the birth chart or the Sibley chart of the United States set around the Declaration of Independence. So although this is particular to the United States at this point in time It obviously would have a significant Impact on the whole world.
Now we have seen the polarization between sanity and insanity, and everything in between, reach unprecedented historic levels. This period of time, without question, will be noted significantly in the history books from a future perspective.
I want to talk about this because I have talked about the USA Pluto return before. And let me just also say that there are a ton of astrologers who have talked about this. And I’ve listened to a lot of that and what I’ve noted is that they don’t really necessarily go into a lot of particulars about… you know… how this will manifest. They just they speak about it in fairly general terms. But I think that if we look at what is occurring, and like I said, the degree to which this situation is being discussed and contemplated. Now even going to these extremes of, like I said civil war, and whether or not that’s possible I think that it has to be taken seriously.
Now I’m not actually suggesting or and i don’t necessarily believe that there will be a civil war. But i do think that what is going to occur this year in 2022 will involve a lot of the deepest and darkest aspects of the United States and its unresolved karma. And its unresolved psychological baggage – if you can refer to a country as being psychological – that that will be brought to the fore and dissected and put on display for all to see. And that is exactly what is occurring.
We have these extremely polarized factions who are engaging in unprecedented levels of hyperbole and beyond because… you know we did just celebrate the one year anniversary of the insurrection in Washington. So it has very real consequences.
And so the question is, you know, how will this stuff be addressed and will it or not and what will be the outcome. Now I personally think that this is like a major purging, like I said, of the deep and dark and unresolved aspects of the – again I’m going to refer to this country as having a psychology – but it does. I mean every every country has a character and qualities – almost like a personality. And a world view for sure, a paradigm that all of that is up for inspection. Whether It makes us comfortable or whether it’s desirable or not, because that’s kind of how Pluto operates.
Now let me give you some dates. This first came within a two degree orb and that’s – that’s when transiting Pluto’s was within two degrees of its natal position – commencing, you know, the first half of 2021. So it actually literally became within two degrees on February 12, 2021. It will be within two degrees until January 6 of 2024.
Now within that period of time there will be three exacts because Pluto will retrograde which will mean that it’ll cross its natal position. Pluto from our perspective will retrograde and it’ll be exact conjunct exact again on July 11th of 2022 retrograde, and make one more pass where it’ll hit direct on December 28th of 2022.
So this year – and we’re into it now because it was back within two degrees on December 19th of 2021. So from December 19th of 2021 right up until the end of 2022 Is the most intense period of this transit.
So the way these transits work is that they can be incredibly profound and deep and they’re big. You know Pluto transits when they make an aspect – a powerful aspect in your natal chart – can be a multi-year process. So whatever comes up and is brought to our awareness during this period of time could take years to resolve.
Now generally, as I’ve said before, if people are – or institutions or nations are – are in the flow of this energy they will do the work that they’re being called to do – the transformation will occur. Pretty or not, and they will evolve. Right? If there’s a lot of resistance to these energies they can sort of show up and manifest explosively because this energy needs to flow, whether we like it to or not.
So, again, three exacts this year. February 20th, July 11th and December 28th.
A lot of astrologers have talked about this and my own personal view is that it’s going to manifest just exactly as we’re seeing it. I would not be surprised, for example, if during this year an awful lot of dirt comes to the surface politically and socially that rocks the nation.
Things that will be brought to light that people will find shocking and deeply disturbing because that’s what Pluto will do. It’ll dredge things up from the subconscious or from the unconscious and bring it to your conscious awareness. And often it’s not pretty. It’s stuff that we usually prefer not to look at or address or think about. And I’m getting reinforcement energy here as i say this.
So now I think that for example the January 6 commission. Some other things could come to light that were done or activities that occurred during the Trump administration. It could even be treacherous, treasonous. Stuff that people will be find extremely shocking that will change the way Americans and the world see the country and perceive the country. So I would be prepared for some really disturbing things to come to light that could change people’s understanding of themselves and the nation. And it’s not likely to be nice.
So who knows how deep and how far the corruption goes but if it’s going to come to light it’ll be this year. And so I think that what people should do is brace themselves and it’ll be stuff, if it comes up, like it’ll make what happened during the Nixon impeachment probably look like a cake walk in comparison. This is probably going to be like really deep and really big and it’ll forever change the country. Now how far that goes we’ll see.
Now sort of from where we’re operating right now there’s a lot of people really in denial about, for example, January 6 and the whole Trump administration and everything. And a lot, I think, is going to depend on how they react to whatever is brought to light. That might actually cause them to second-guess or question their allegiance to Trump and to that administration or even the Republican party itself. It’s possible that the corruption could be so onerous that that loses a lot of steam. And then the question will then become what are we gonna do to fix this?
I don’t think you’re going to see the fixes in 2022. I think what we’re going to see in 2022 is the problems. So the problems will come to light and they’re going to be deep and they’re going to be significant. And then the fixes to that will probably take years.
So anyway I want to draw your attention to this because I think it’s really big. I mean the fact that this is occurring, like I said, during a global historic level pandemic is just mind-boggling.
So we’ll see how this plays out but I think that it’s going to be shocking probably and disturbing I would imagine what the repercussions of all that are going to be I think remain to be seen.
So heads up fasten your seat belts.
Also Saturn, on a mundane level, Saturn will square Uranus again at the end of the year. It’s an intense period.
My sense is that, you know, Omicron and the Coronavirus will probably settle down. I’m not saying It’s going to go away but I think it’ll be, you know, as people develop more immunity to it and it’s in a less severe variant right now. In terms of the effect that it has on people i think that it’ll be a little easier in that regard in 2022. But it’s not going to be gone. It’ll still be with us.
The main thing I wanted to draw your attention to was the Pluto return of the United States is going to be big this year. 2022 is probably going to blow our minds and for everybody, not just Americans, but the whole world. It’s going to be big and it’s going to be intense.
Now hopefully good comes from all of this you know like if stuff comes to light about corruption or treasonous activity or whatever it is – cheating, lying, deceiving, stealing – that kind of stuff. Abuses of power and privilege. The natal Pluto of the United States is in the second house and in addition to material matters the second house is often equated with material possessions and property and ownership but it also really covers values. Like things that you value. So that’s a very powerful place to have Pluto, in the second house. There’s a lot of power there and there’s a lot of potential for transformation.
So values, you know, the second house being ruled by Venus. The higher octave of Venus is pure unconditional love and the lower manifestations of that would be possessiveness and hoarding and trying to acquire material objects possessions and wealth.
So there has to be some kind of a financial component to whatever that’s gonna occur this year. And certainly it will relate to values and that’s already what we’re talking about. I mean the these values between the left and the right. Those who are dealing with reality and uh those who are living in a pseudo-reality that’s what this is all about. This huge debate that’s going on right now. So I find that very interesting.
Pay attention, 2022 will be a very big year.
There’s a number of other transits going on for the United States as well this year and each one of them is worthy of a significant discussion. But I’m just going to say that Neptune is squaring the Mars of the United States. Neptune is opposing the natal Neptune. Chiron is squaring the Sun. Chiron is opposing the natal Saturn. It’s too much to get into here because this would be way too long.
Another thing that I want to point out or just mention is that I find it that it’s extraordinary that this Pluto return of the United States, with the United States being the most dominant economic force on the planet, and culturally as well. And certainly very visible to the whole world, because the world reports and we’re all aware now especially with social media and whatnot, and the internet, about what’s going on in the United States. And so the whole world’s watching. This but I find it extraordinary that this is occurring. That this craziness that we’re seeing occurring to the most powerful nation on the planet, is occurring at this point in time where theoretically at least we’re supposed to be going through this great awakening. A degree of spiritual enlightenment is occurring on the planet. And that that we’re shifting into this Age of Aquarius. I find the timing of this is just absolutely extraordinary.
Astrologically I mean there’s just no question if we look at what’s going on – I mean with any degree of objectivity or perspective – astrologically this Pluto return is so obvious it to me at least as an astrologer. And I know it is for other astrologers as well. I don’t know if other people appreciate how significant this is and how coincidental it is with the timing. This is an extraordinary time.
You know it takes Pluto 248 years approximately to orbit the Sun. So we’re here at this point in time when this is occurring. Both this shift into the Age of Aquarius, and we’re witnessing this Pluto return in the United States, all sort of wondering how this is going to play out. Is the United States going to crumble or or dissolve in some way? Or descend into some kind of anarchy and civil war and even… and this speculation is occurring from within the nation itself. It’s not just me as an outsider observing this. There’s, like I said, very credible scholars, academics and journalists discussing this now openly. I find just the whole thing is so mind-blowingly extraordinary.
Let’s hope that it plays out well and that the United States goes through a period of meaningful reform that will set the stage for the next 248 years of history for this country. And that it doesn’t descend into darkness, chaos, anarchy and without the rule of law. And that it maintains its status as a democracy. Because that is within… that is in question legitimately at this point in time.
I’m underscoring how significant this is and for those of us who are aware and who are paying attention these are truly historic times. It’s going to be absolutely fascinating, if not nerve-wracking, to watch how this all unfolds. And i’ll leave it at that.
Pay attention, this is an amazing we’re… getting huge energy right now… to be here at this point in time in human history is just astonishing and and we’re very lucky to be here. And you know, I know why Spirit wants us to maintain a positive attitude because everybody is cheering for this to work out well. And at the same time though we can’t take our eye off the ball. And we can’t just go into denial because we we have to be paying attention because things could go in any direction. Sticking our head in the sand is not going to help.
So, fingers crossed. 2022 here we go.
I’ll talk to you again soon. And again thanks again to Kerry Erickson for the fantastic intro music he beautifully created for me.
