Pluto: Transgenerational

In a couple of weeks Pluto will revisit the sign of Sagittarius where it spent the last thirteen years carving out another zodiacal generation. All of the outer Planets, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto create astrological representations of different “ages”, however Pluto seems to loosely follow the sociological determined generations. It seems that we are currently moving on from Generation Y.

Pluto spends about twelve years in each sign however it has been known stay for up to thirty one years at times. During some brief research on the generational eras, I discovered discrepancies in the time frames for past and present generations. There doesn’t seem to be a definite edge in the changing of generations and some theorists imply there are also inbetween generations or “cuspers” who fall into different categories.

I was born in 1957 and according to the sociological theorists, I belong to the tail end of the Baby Boomer generation. Baby Boomers are apparently born between 1943 and 1960. They have been called the “Me” generation. The pluto in Leo generation is between 1939 and 1957 which seems to closely represent the Baby Boomer generation. Leo is a self absorbed, fun loving sign of the zodiac. Leo people tend to enjoy a sense of authority while having fun at the same time.

The Young Baby Boomer

The Aged Baby Boomer

In 1957 Pluto moved into Virgo which aligns with the very beginning of Generation X. Pluto retrograded back into Leo briefly before finally making the transition to Virgo. In the brief time Pluto returned to Leo there seems to be a cross-generational period where one could fit either or, generational identity. Perhaps the people born during these times are cuspers or inbetweeners? Being born during this cross over period myself, I tend to relate to the older Baby Boomers as well as the Generation X mob. Sometimes I don’t relate to either of these generations at all!

Generation X : Pluto in Virgo

Generation X have been called “slackers” and “the lost generation”. The sociological determined period is between 1961 and 1981. Pluto in Virgo generation is between 1957 and 1972. The sign of Virgo tends to describe one’s practical traits, methodology, healing and analytical types compared to the gregarious and self absorbed Pluto in Leo generation. Virgo types can swing from micro pedantic to hedonistic wallow.

The Pluto in Libra generation was between 1972 and and 1984 which is covered by the Generation X period.  Pluto in Libra generation intersects the Gen X and Gen Y generations somewhat.

Here is a Pluto in Libra Person

Libra represents the scales of justice, relationships and socially driven pursuits such as fashion. In a general sense Pluto through Libra represents the transformations in the justice system, the way traditional ideas on marriage have changed and a kind of renaissance period including the rock and roll Gothics or Punk Rock. I think that bands such as Duran Duran brought the puffy sleeve shirts into fashion along with a kind of romantic era.

The oldest Generation Y person is currently about 25 years of age. The sociological demarcation of this era is between 1982 and the early 2000’s. Gen Y’s have also been known as the “Milleniums”. This is where an anomaly occurs with regard to the astrological determined generations.

Pluto through Scorpio is between 1984 and 1996. Pluto in Scorpio generation tends to describe Generation Y’s quite well, although in a darker sense perhaps. Pluto through Scorpio can be described as working with a great deal of power. Pluto resonates to Scorpio’s transformational context and some modern Astrologers say that Pluto is the ruler of Scorpio. Scorpio describes intensity and issues around metaphysics, sexuality and death. It was during this Pluto in Scorpio era (1987) that Aids became the forefront in global transformations to sexual health. Australia used the Grimm Reaper campaign.

Pluto’s generational journey through Sagittarius is only just finishing. Between 1996 and 2008 Pluto has been transforming the world in areas of “truths”. Sagittarius is concerned with religious and philosophical concerns, this sign denotes higher learning and publishing. Sagittarius represents travel and perspectives gained through experiencing cultural diversity. I believe the word CALD was derived through Pluto in Sagittarius era. It is the era where revelations of abuse in religious organisations were exposed and the era where women have been ordained into priesthood. It is the era where terrorists views were acted out with great consequences and where international travel has changed forever.

Our experience of global philosophies have transformed during Pluto in Sagittarius. It has been the era where our behaviours have been consistently exposed in the media. Social issues such as obesity, binge drinking and community responses to such issues have been consistently published. I imagine the sociologists are piecing the information to name this next generation. The Z generation perhaps? The eldest Pluto in Sagittarius children at the current time is about 10 years of age. Pluto has already made in-roads into Capricorn however we are still in the twilight zone where for some reason Pluto comes back into Sagittarius for several months.

People born during the next few months (Pluto retro into Sagittarius period) will in effect be “inbetweeners”. They will be the “cuspers” in Pluto’s generational work. In my mind it can be useful to belong or relate to more than one generational value. The person gains the advantage of both worlds and therefore, develop bridging philosophies according to the different social eras.  Thankgod the Y’s are now becoming grounded in the Capricornian earthy pursuits of the next generation.

    It must take you absolutely ages to get even one post together! Holy Smokes Ken – you sound like you really know what you’re talking about.

    Not really Roses, the blogging concept allows short cuts to get ones views across. Its just a few dates along with some existing knowledge. Normally well written articles will contain the research to back statements up. On the blogs all one has to do is place a link in the post to some reference or other. Its not like doing a paper that requires evidence based writing and references etc.

    So you are from the Pluto in Virgo mob Roses. Generation X. It is a pretty vast categorisation I must say.

    I have had so much trouble editing that last blog. It seems that this blogsite has a very hard time with copying and pasting from word docs. I would edit the post and then it would show up with bits missing etc, sorry about that.

    It’s all good Ken. At least i got to see it if it never lives to see another day. Hope it works out somehow.

    More people were born in 1957 in the USA (4,300,000) than in any other year of the period. You are not alone.

    That is an interesting statistic Deborah.

    I am sorry who ever you are but this comment is either too cryptic or just nonsensical. I wold be happy if you had a comment that was understandable.

    I was born in January of ’60. I sometimes identify with baby boomers and sometimes identify with “Gen X”. It depends upon the issue discussed. (As is often the case with Capricorns I am intense and drawn to the intensity typical of Scorpios.)

    Good to hear from you oddjob. Tes, I am not sure whether we can literally use Pluto to define which camp we are in or not. Much of developing values in our lives is pertaining to our role models and how we might accept of rebel against them. I know some very young people who could fit into the Boomers sense of values. Some have old souls and others beyond their time. It is interesting on a social economic investigation I suppose. To see how the global shift in trends occurs.

    I am a Scorpio, born in 1987. To my understanding, Pluto is the ruler of Scorpio and was in Scorpio in 87’… What generation would I be listed under? Y..? There is no footnote under the first picture in your post. What is it depicting?

  14. 15 kingsley November 19, 2008 at 07:24

    Hello Veilleux, there are many astrology people who take Pluto as the ruler of Scorpio. Traditionally, Mars is the ruler of Scorpio though. PLuto may have in my view, rulership by association; that is in the case of Scorpio’s transformative energy and the eighth house of resources etc. Pluto does a few pretty good tricks on his own, let alone him being responsible for Scorpios.

    Anyway, I would say that you are one of the generation Y mob.

    best to you Veilleux

    That first picture Veilleux, is a gen Y out shopping. Gen Y’s are reknown for wearing the jeans half way down their bum I think.


  16. 17 Veilleux November 20, 2008 at 01:43

    Thank you Sir. Yeah I think I would be part of the Y Gen. I live in the city and you are right, Jeans down around the bum is quite the thing out there lately. Runnin round, ready to take it up the ***. Not my style, but I wouldnt mind seeing some more of them Ys in that picture…
