Powerful Pluto Retrograde

Turn inward as transformational Pluto turns back

Sure, Pluto was demoted in astronomy back in 2006. But in Astrology, Pluto is one of the most unpredictable planets, and it will be even more unpredictable as Pluto goes retrograde in the serious sign of Capricorn from April 14 to Sept. 22, 2014.

At times, Pluto is a cosmic detective, determined to find the real story; other times Pluto is like an outspoken dinner guest who blurts out secrets and reveals hidden truths about everyone at the table.

When a planet "goes retrograde," or, appears to be moving backwards through the sky, it often creates a "Bizarro World" of everything it stands for -- communication planet Mercury in retrograde creates miscommunication, for example. But Pluto's backward shift doesn't makes us confused, it makes us reflective. Instead of Pluto creating sticky situations in the outside world, it forces us to look inward.

First, it's important to realize that Pluto was named after the Roman god of the underworld -- aka, the land of the dead. Like its namesake, the planet Pluto rules over the shadow side of everything and everyone. So when Pluto is charged up and moving direct, issues of corruption and buried stories may surface; we could learn that a politician has been taking bribes, a celebrity has been having an affair or that a friend has been saying negative things about us behind our backs.

So when Pluto goes retrograde, it forces us to focus on our own personal shadow sides -- specifically, the unpleasant parts of our personalities that we may not really like. Two big themes that Pluto likes to highlight are power and desire. With Pluto retrograde, we'll have to get honest with ourselves about how much we're motivated by a need for recognition, money and authority. At the same time, we might have to confront the darker sides of what we want; for example, are you working hard to get in shape because you are truly concerned about your health, or are you spurred by a desire for revenge on an ex who didn't appreciate you?

With Pluto Retrograde for five months, this period of personal reckoning allows us to do a lot of purging, too. Once we see traits in ourselves that we dislike, we can work to improve them. We can also revisit old hurts and hang-ups as Pluto sheds light on the darker corners of our experiences. In this way we can grow, which highlights Pluto's key strength: transformation.

This is most certainly true, true, true. I have been going through an incredibly emotional time. I have had to look at some hard truths about myself and others. The one thing I learned through this retrograde is that not all of the things we think are our problems are. Many times we take what others have said about us far to personal. Be careful of this, it can distract you from the real issues you would be much better spending your time on. And remember Scorpios, it's not all about you; give others a chance to take their issues to work on themselves. As much as we would like to - we can't save the world. Save yourself first and the rest becomes a whole lot easier. LDF - 2011

Yes, this is certainly a time to look back and where I have been so I can get a better perspective on where I am at now with a vision for the future. Thanks @Peta_de_Aztlan
