Pluto in Taurus
Modern astrologers believe Pluto transforms what it contacts. Theoretically then, a transformation of financial institutions and the financial status of nations should take place when Pluto is in this sign. Pluto was in Taurus from the early 1850's until the early 1880's. During this time, the industrial revolution had reached maturity (Uranus return upon its discovery) and the beginnings of great wealth was created in Europe and the USA through the growing middle class. Prior to this time, there were rich and poor, but very few in between. In the USA, the gold standard was set up as a way to back the currency. Since Pluto's elemental nature is undetermined, it seems useless to speculate about any differences related to the chart sect.
