Living for Pluto Retrograde

I live for Pluto Retrograde. Bold statement, I know. I’m the type who likes to dig deep and get to the root of an issue, not just to “fix it” but to intellectualize the mechanics and understand what the hell went wrong.

It’s probably the trauma, but I’d like to think it’s that I’ve transmuted my experiences into self-awareness and understanding, and that’s literally what Pluto does. It detoxifies, redefines, and restructures.

During Pluto Retrograde we will often find ourselves fixing up the house or reworking some renovations in our own personal or emotional sense. You’ll also be pulled to reworking that schedule of yours to benefit your needs more, it’s relentless this time, and it lasts from May 1st to October 10th in Capricorn.

This whole shift is quite literally all about personal power and transmuting feelings of helplessness in any given situation.

More often than not, we find ourselves pulled to home-related projects or renewal because we feel it’s something we can control or fix for that immediate sense of accomplishment. Think, fixing the dishwasher so you don’t have to call a repairman or maybe really getting a new carpet this time because the 30-year-old maroon stuff just isn’t cutting anymore. Looks nice after some sprucing up, but I’m sure there’s more to fix in your life than just the flooring.

Pluto doesn’t want us to stop just there, we have to go deeper - it is eclipse season after all.

Have you been giving away your power? Are you trying to siphon that of others? Jupiter will only expand this and really being aware of where your energy is going will be key. If you have to create a way for more mindful communication, do so. But if you have to put up boundaries where there weren’t any before, do that before the Universe does it for you. Seriously.

With all of the drama that encompasses eclipse season, (in his underworld ways) Pluto will be unearthing and transmuting shame.

Your body will be releasing toxins through sweat, tears, or otherwise, but like to the tenth degree right now. You may even find yourself being called out for exactly what you want to hide most. It will be a flushing of sorts, most definitely. Themes around trust, betrayal, toxicity, and how we clutch to the familiar will be brought to the surface. This is the prequel to some breakups that will happen after our next Full Moon on May 5th.

But please, please, please, don’t let this get you nervous. Whatever severing of toxicity you have to experience in order to retrieve your personal power, it is necessary and UNAVOIDABLE.

Have you been lied to? Are you lying to yourself? Are there some addictive or self-sabotaging behaviors that you’ve been called out for but refuse to address? The more intense your destructive behavior, the more intense the detoxification right now.

Yep, I know. But with the Sun in Taurus and Pluto retrograding in Capricorn, cutting off toxic behaviors will have a direct impact on your finances. Newfound discipline, or even order in your physical space will offer up bandwidth that could also transform your bank account. If you feel the pull to clean up that budget right now, obviously do so because your field is trying to tell you something.

Uranus moves into Taurus starting May 16th and this planetary shift really amplifies the detoxifying nature of Pluto in Retrograde. To some, it may even feel like another spiritual awakening, while to others, it will be a newfound vigor to get their lives to level set.

The Signs That Will Be Most Affected

The signs that will feel a surge in power will be Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn. They will feel emboldened by dropping the dead weight, and they may even have a complete shift in how they present themselves to the world, but it won’t be without some honesty and even conflict. Leo, Taurus, Scorpio, and Aquarius will have what I feel is a shift in power. Those signs may have been called out for something false, or maybe kept quiet when they could have spoken up, but they will be quiet no more. Look to your Sun, Moon, and Lilith placements for some clues.

My biggest piece of advice is to simply allow the information to come in. Allow yourself to feel uncomfortable and identify what you are feeling. Get out in nature when you can, it will be so important to align yourself with source energy as much as possible.

You will crave that pure Universal light and want to get as close to it as possible. We’ve got retrogrades and probably some of the most lightning-quick shifts I’ve ever experienced. The collective is leveling up fast, so you will want to slow down and connect to Source as much as possible.

After all, you are the Universe experiencing itself in human form.

Mantras for when we want to connect to Source most:

I am the light, and the light surrounds me.

I allow my Highest Self to guide me through uncharted waters. There is safety there still.

Even though my path appears unclear, I remain steadfast

There is no wrong way to use these, I will say my Monday mantra in the morning or whenever I sit down for a meal. This sets the intention bright and early and when I take the time to nourish myself. Do what feels right for you 💕.
