Pluto's entry in the sidereal Sagittarius

Date posted:  December 31, 2004

One of the important planetary events of 2005 is the transit of the modern planet Pluto from the sidereal zodiac sign Scorpio to Sagittarius. It first occurs on January 28. Pluto stays in Sagittarius till May 28, and then with its retrograde motion returns to Scorpio and stays in Scorpio till November 28. After November 28, 2005 it will remain in Sagittarius for the following 14 to15 years (till February 2020).  Although it's going to be in Sagittarius for only about 4 months before it returns to Scorpio, Pluto being the planet of transformation will certainly affect the matters related to Sagittarius in a big way. The drastic changes in our collective moral and religious perceptions are certainly going to be manifested in the way we never experienced before by Pluto's transit in Sagittarius. This era (next 15 years) will be remembered as the period of religious revolution.  The way we have been used to deal with religions will no longer be our norms.  Although it's very likely that some of the world religions will either become obsolete or transformed into other forms the religious or moral codes will be greatly influenced by our collective spiritual experiences. And in that sense a subtle but most effective transformation of world religions during this unique era of 15 years is likely to take us to a level where the norms solely based on spiritual experiences will dictate and guide our lives with new level of understanding. 

Sagittarius, being the sign for justice and judicial system, judicial systems all around the world will go through significant transformations to reflect the new norms of morality and ethics.

In scientific and technological areas lot of drastic changes and emerging new ideas will find their way into innovations and discoveries.  The scientific and technological growth rate will rise at a very rapid pace.  However, it will be the first time the scientific and technological research will be more focused in areas that will bridge the gap between the science and morality. The likely areas of research will be in biotechnology, medicine, spiritual healing, and life-force related activities. A new wave of philosophers with their new perspectives on living, in general, will certainly transform our world in next 15 years to a new level of understanding. 

On individual level for those who have Sagittarius ninefold ascendant should get ready for a brand new and long lasting (15 years) cycle of change, especially a very pronounced cycle if Pluto is a dominant planet in your birth charts. The changes that might occur would be very subtle and would deal with pretty much all aspects of your life including relationship, marriage, profession, surroundings, common perceptions and beliefs, and the way of living.
