Pluto Retrograde,

Traditionally, Pluto has been associated with death and rebirth. His journey through Scorpio the sign of death and transformation, makes us face our deepest fears: the will to disturb peace in order to create profound personal change.

Starting May 1, 2023, the Lord of the Underworld will descend into his underworld and remain there for four months (from October 10 to January 8). Then you will emerge from it with greater knowledge and insight.

Pluto retrograde invites us to examine the transformations of the past to recognize that what has fallen is irrevocably gone and to recognize what still lurks in our shadows.

Retrograde Pluto in Aquarius

Pluto enters a period of retrograde motion while in the sign of Aquarius. This is significant since it is only the second time that Pluto has been positioned here during our lifetimes. Pluto will be in Aquarius until June 11 when its retrogradation to Capricorn begins.

This is a good time to explore topics related to Pluto in Aquarius and what they could mean to you personally or on an astrological level. When Pluto entered Aquarius in February 2008, it inaugurated a powerful cycle of transformation.

Some interpret this transit as the sign of the beginning of our collective journey towards the Age of Aquarius.

People with Pluto in Aquarius tend to be interested in technology, community and humanitarianism and are more spiritually advanced. Pluto has a dark side as well. It causes changes that are difficult to predict and can sometimes lead to death or rebirth.

The transformation process requires everything to be destroyed so that new life can emerge from the ashes.

Navigating Pluto retrograde

During a retrograde phase of Pluto, we are given the opportunity to thoroughly analyze our lives and make the changes necessary for personal evolution. We may be attracted to looking at March 23, 2023.

  • What transformations have occurred since then?
  • How has the world changed and evolved in the last two decades?

How have we ourselves been reborn?

The date to look back is October 8, 2022. This was the last time Pluto was retrograde. What transformations have taken place since then? How has your life been transformed as a result of these changes?

Pluto’s influence is subtle and profound which can make it difficult to understand its impact on our lives. Merely reflecting on this topic may not provide us with the clarity needed to unravel the journey of this powerful planet in our lives.

According to astrology, Pluto has an influence on the deeper layers of our being and only after it completes its transit through a zodiac sign can we begin to understand the wisdom, lessons and transformations it was destined to bring to our lives.

Its energy is subtle but powerful, meaning it can take time and reflection to unravel its impact on us.

Pluto is currently in the final stages of its journey through Capricorn but its retrograde motion indicates that there is still work to be done in this area of our lives. During 2023 and most of 2024, Pluto will continue retrograde in Capricorn which will give us the opportunity to delve into the lessons and transformations we have been experiencing in this area of our lives.

This period can be challenging but it can also offer opportunities for personal growth and renewal.
