Pluto is known as The Great Revealer
Pluto continues to retrograde in the stable Earthy sign of Capricorn. Pluto rules over profound transformation, death, and rebirth. Think of numerology where the number 9 is the end of the cycle, 0 is a place of limbo, and then the number 1 restarts a new cycle. Pluto is like the zero sitting between an old existence and a new one. Even when retrograde, Pluto heralds a time of significant transformation in life. The phoenix rises from the ashes, and we are born again. Karma and fate are key themes now. Some say that Uranus breaks, Neptune dissolves, and Pluto destroys.
Pluto spends approximately 5 months per year in retrograde. There is also a ‘shadow period’ commencing a few months before and after this time. Pluto has an affinity with the feminine yin energy. Delusions and illusions may occur more often than usual when she’s retrograde. Logical thinking may be particularly difficult, and judgement doesn’t seem as clear-cut as usual.
Pluto is the last planet in our solar system and the 3rd transpersonal planet, which means it relates to individuals and large collectives of people, for example, countries.
We Transition to Other Realities
As ruler of Scorpio, Pluto is also associated with sex, death, and money. Pluto retrograde may also bring up issues around fear of death or situations where the transition of death becomes more prevalent and real. We may experience different types of death – the death of a relationship, a career, or our children growing up and leaving home. We could feel alone, isolated and may contemplate what our own final moments will be. Death and transformation are no longer abstract concepts – they’re real and touch us in some way. The number of deaths will increase dramatically during this time due to many governments mishandling the Covid 19 crisis. During Pluto Retrograde, themes of control and abuse become more prevalent, along with obsessive and compulsive behaviour and addiction. We suffer, we grieve, we transition to other realms and realities.
Spiritual Wounds May Surface
During Pluto Retrograde, we may have spiritual wounds surface from the past that need to be understood and healed. They may be difficult to understand or talk about. Sometimes, these things are inexplicable and exist beyond words. We may come face to face with our own mortality. We may begin to get inklings of past incarnations where strong beliefs and emotions were carried over to this lifetime. We could experience extreme emotions, including fears we can’t explain or express.
Manipulation and victimization are also potential themes of Pluto Retrograde. You may be feeling like a victim in some way, but Pluto Retrograde will eventually steer you in the right direction to find wholeness. Go with your feelings. You may not understand with your mind, but if you trust in the magical process of life, you will be redeemed and reborn anew.
Develop Spiritual Awareness
Pluto Retrograde often carries us along on a wave of the unknown. However, it’s also an excellent time for spiritual self-development. Check out some self-help books, astrology, yoga, or learn astrology. Your psychic abilities could become stronger during this time, and you may have deep spiritual experiences, including passing over to the other side or dealing with Spirits.
All planetary retrogrades give us the opportunity to review, reflect and reassess different areas of our lives. We can do that now as we learn to accept the reality of Pluto Retrograde – life, death, and rebirth. We can learn a new way of dealing with Plutonian energy when Pluto is retrograde.
