This is a very long generational influence that affects everyone born within a twenty-five-year period near the time of your birth. All by itself, it is probably not the most important feature of your chart; however, it does describe some general conditions that were activated during that period, and to a certain extent, you and those of your generation carry that energy forward with you as you mature and develop. Pluto is all about power, and whoever is in power demonstrates it according to the sign that Pluto was in when they were born.
The Pluto-in-Caner generation (born between 1913 and 1938) were quite tenacious about grasping and holding the reins of power. This is the generation of 'family values,' the group who wanted a return to tradition and the old ways of doing things. Pluto's sign also reveals what areas will be transformed during Pluto's stay there. Caner relates to the family, and we know that the family itself underwent great changes during this period, setting up conditions for an increase in the divorce rate and the changeover from the extended family to the nuclear family.
