A look at Generation Z: The Pluto in Sagittarius generation

Pluto in Sagittarius generationPluto moves through a sign approximately every 20 years – its orbit is elliptical and there is a huge variation in the length of time Pluto spends in any sign – from 12 to 30 years!  Each sign that Pluto moves through marks a new generation with a new set of issues and priorities (other posts on generations can be found here).

Sometimes called “Generation Z” and described by social scientists as being born between 1995 and 2009 (Pluto was in Sagittarius between 1995 and 2008 making this a very close fit),  this generation is finding it difficult to live in today’s Capricornian world.  Sagittarius bestows an open mind and an eagerness to explore other cultures – it often tends to be fascinated with the media, philosophy and religion.  Sagittarius is optimistic and needs the freedom to adventure and has a dislike of being controlled.  It’s a very social sign and enjoys influencing the opinions of others.

 Under the influence of Pluto in Sagittarius the publishing industry as we knew it was destroyed and the internet took over the dissemination of knowledge. Globalism and international communication transformed the realm of commerce.  The power of positive thinking and personal growth erupted into the mainstream. But Pluto is the planet of obsession and destruction as well as transformation and regeneration, and Pluto in a sign tends to intensify the attributes of that sign to the extreme.

Here are some things the media  has said about “Generation Z” – you’ll easily see how well this fits the Sagittarius archetype:

  • Church attendance for this group is up: 41% compared to Millenials (Pluto in Scorpio) at 18% (Sagittarius rules religion).
  • This generation shares more about themselves in social media than previous generations (I’m sure this is partly due to the proliferation of media apps, but also to the Sagittarian need to interact on a wider scale as opposed to the Pluto in Scorpio generation which is more private).
  • More of them (81%) believe in the importance of a college education – higher learning is ruled by Sagittarius.
  • This freedom-loving group is more interested in entrepreneurship – Sagittarius wants the freedom to pursue their goals and dreams.
  • They are more eager than their parents (often Millenials) to leave home and live independently.
  • They are more open to a diverse cultural environment and interested in participating in the global community (a highlight of expansive Sagittarius).

Because each zodiacal sign reacts to the sign it follows, each generation reacts to the one that precedes it.  The Pluto in Sagittarius generation reacts to the intense pessimism of the Millenial generation (Pluto in Scorpio) which in turn reacted to the mild mannered Generation X (Pluto in Libra) that just wanted everyone to get along.

The correlation between the  Pluto generations and the generational distinctions applied by social scientists is fascinating to me and just one more thing to prove the relevance of astrology in today’s world.

    I am raising to Generation Z’s. They don’t show any interest in religion. Do you think they will be more into alternative religions or more conservative in their religious views?

      Actually Tamara, research shows (as I write in the post) that church attendance is up in Gen Z compared to Millenials.

        What I meant to ask is Gen Z going to be Conservative in their religious views, and become a generation of evangelicals, or will their churches of choice be more open and accepting of different views, life styles, homosexuality, etc.

          The Sagittarius archetype is typically expansive and accepting, but because ideology is important to the archetype they can also be judgmental. Look at Ann Coulter with four planets in Sag: http://lokasiwisata.info/dev2017/ann-coulters-poisonous-rage

          Not everyone in a generation expresses the Pluto archetype the same way and much depends on their individual charts.

            Well, I hope they are more liberal in their religion. Thanks for the Ann Coulter link. She is scary.

    It would be interesting to compare the XYZ generations to the Pluto In Leo/Boomer generation.

    Also of note – the Gen X parents of Gen Z as older Gen Y (’84to ’90)’s are generally still putting off starting a family due to lack of material resources.

    Plus the DIY ethos that Gen X brought to the fore, Gen X took to heart, and Gen Z sees as a matter of course.

    Lots of Generation Z kids in the Unitarian Church – including my child with Capricorn Sun, Sag moon!

    My child literally dragged me there and embraces their values, in fact.

    Lynn, I hope you’ll see the excellent Netflix documentary called FYRE: THE GREATEST PARTY THAT NEVER HAPPENED. It concerns the recent huge fiasco in which ambitious Millennial and GenZ promoters planned an enormous music festival on a Caribbean island… which ended in disaster, costing everyone millions upon millions of dollars. It is a portrait directly of the GenZ Generation and their insane collective delusions (I’m thinking some nasty activity from their collective Neptune placements). Delusion bordering upon sociopathy and psychopathy. Just where do these kids have their natal Neptunes? A fascinating film, and I promise it will interest and concern you astrologically.

      I started watching the Hulu doc and THAT is really interesting. I will watch the Netflix one next. Pluto being Pluto, every generation has its destructive qualities and its great powers. Billy McFarland was born in 1991 (no date known) so he’s the Pluto in Scorpio generation which we are calling “Millenials”. But in 1991 Uranus and Neptune were beginning to connect, and there is the potential for delusion in that alignment but also potential for creativity and wisdom.
