Pluto in Cancer (1912-1939)- Roaring 20s, WWI, Great Depression
Pluto in Leo (1937-1958)- WWII, McCarthyism
Pluto in Virgo (1956-1972)- Hippie Movement, Woodstock
Pluto in Libra (1971-1984)- Roe vs. Wade, Feminist Movement
Pluto in Scorpio (1983-1995)- AIDS, drug violence, LA Riots
Pluto in Sagittarius (1995-2008)- 9/11, religious fundamentalism
Pluto in Capricorn (2008-2024)- Great Recession, collapse of banks, governmental corruption exposed
The common theme: Every one of these events took place or is taking place because of the sign Pluto is in. The Great Depression transformed family life (Cancer) forever, McCarthyism and WWII were against communism (Leo rules Kings and dictators), the Hippie Movement's purpose was to heal the Earth (Virgo), the Feminist Movement transformed relationships (Libra) forever, AIDS destroyed the concept of free sex (Scorpio), and 9/11 transformed world travel (Sagittarius) forever. Governmental (Capricorn) corruption is being exposed like never before, and the recent election's aftermath has been focused on "fake news", when the mainstream media machine (CBS, ABC, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, Fox News) has been exposed as the fear touting propaganda machine that it is. Gay marriage is now legal (Capricorn rules all social institutions), the rise of alternative spirituality is transforming religion (Neptune in Pisces is also a culprit in this), etc. The outer planets cannot be ignored, and knowing what the outer planets stand for, as well as the signs thery inhabit, will have us more prepared for what will happen when they transit a sign.
