Pluto, the planet of seismic transformation will move back and forth between Capricorn and Aquarius until November 2024-then stays in Aquarius for the next 19 1/2 years. As the slowest moving planet, it takes 248 years to make a complete orbit around the Sun, spending anywhere from 11 1/2 years to 30 1/2 years in a sign due to its highly elliptical orbit.
