This page showing the geocentric paths of
Pluto, Ixion, and Quaoar is adjunct material to the main article:
The above star chart shows the paths of Pluto, Ixion, and Quaoar through sidereal Virgo, Libra, Scorpio and Sag over a 120-year time span, as seen from Earth (geocentric). I present this chart as a resource for astrologers to further correlate the influences of Ixion and Quaoar with historical and future events.

Pluto is currently the fastest mover of the three—thus overtaking Ixion and Quaoar during this period. Ixion and Quaoar arrived to mid-sidereal Virgo (conjoined Porrima and Vindemiatrix) in 1944 and 1953 respectively. Pluto arrived to this location, much later, around 1975. (Note Ixion's and Pluto's parallel conjunctions with Vindemiatrix.) Ixion and Quaoar conjoined in 1983-4 in sidereal Libra—in the claws of the Scorpion (Libra's balance), quite close to Zubeneschamali, the northern claw—a significant alignment. (Note the parallel conjunction of Ixion and Zubeneschamali.) Pluto did not arrive to conjoin the claws of the Scorpion until 1989, conjoining Zubenelgenubi first and then Zubeneschamali in 1991. Thus, Pluto still lagged behind Ixion and Quaoar. Pluto caught up to the other two from 1995 through 1997—conjoining Ixion in 1995 and Quaoar in 1997 (the later conjoining Dschuba, the head of the Scorpion). This time period marked a principle synthesis and transition of the three energetics.
Pluto, at this point took the lead, conjoining Antares, heart of the Scorpion, in 1999. Pluto moves into sidereal Sag in 2006 and soon after conjoins Galactic Center (GC). Also at this time, in 2006, Ixion arrives to its south node (the point in Ixion's orbit where it crosses from the north side of the ecliptic plane to the south side). Pluto conjoins the Gate of God (GEN) in 2008. More on the movement of Pluto into sidereal Sag in "Pluto's First Synod in Sidereal Sagittarius."
Quaoar conjoins Galactic Center in 2015, and then the Gate of God in 2017. Near this time, Ixion will cross Galactic Center in 2018-19. During this time, Pluto will arrive to its south node, which occurs in late sidereal Sag, under the auspices of northern Lyra (Lyra not shown).
