Pluto Retrograde

Pluto Retrograde in Capricorn

 

Pluto starts its reverse movement into Retrograde on April 22nd and runs through September 30th! Pluto Retrograde isn’t as glitchy as Mercury or Saturn in Retrograde, so you may hardly notice it unless you work with a lot of people and know their deeper emotional issues. But you will recognize it more so on a deep psychological level within yourself if you’re aware of your feelings and get in touch with your soul purpose. The planet of deep analysis normally takes us more inward, but in Retrograde it becomes a journey into hidden realms we may not have dealt with, so the feelings we’ve been holding on to or repressing can come out in the open.

Pluto Retrograde in the sign of Capricorn can be beneficial, if we are observant and pay close attention to any unconscious patterns or behaviors that motivate our actions, then we can change or break them. Pluto is all about power so authority figures or anyone who represents authority, and those anyone who has power over us may catch our attention, or we suddenly are on their radar, so we may have to be careful and follow the rules for now, especially with Saturn the “Authority Figure” or “Father” of the Zodiac also in Retrograde!

During the end of April be extra cautious for tempers and hot-heads, as Mars and Pluto make a challenging but powerful connection on April 26th. This energy will be even stronger because of Pluto coming to a standstill just days prior.

Pluto Retrograde is like Saturn, so it has a regular cycle every year that lasts for five months, as it makes an opposition to the Sun. Outer planets just affect us in a very different way then the inner planets. The effects are more subtle at first until we move past this cycle and can look back in hindsight, and then we realize just how this time might have been life-changing in some way! Perspective is always an issue when planets are Retrograde, remember, so even though Pluto in Retrograde isn’t probably causing you strange technical glitches or annoyances it still makes its presence known in a sneaky sort of stealth kind of way. When Pluto goes Retrograde it’s a good time to reflect on how we are doing with changes and our soul transformation.

Pluto Retrograde is a time of reflection on power and control in your life. If there are people who are trying to control or manipulate you then now is the perfect time to let them go! If you’ve been too controlling of others or situations then it’s time to stop it and change your behavior! This is not a time to abuse any kind of power you have over others, so avoid power trips, and make this a time for eliminating.

Themes that seem to repeat and events that are almost fated will help you reinforce which of your controlling habits, addictions, compulsions, or prejudices now must be eliminated, or Pluto will make these issues more relevant, so it feels like a giant spotlight gets shined on the problem to be analyzed and reviewed very intensely, but again you may not even be aware of it until it’s over with. What isn’t working, like poor health, an attitude that is hateful or that causes suffering may be burned away now, released and offered up to the Universe. What’s left and what is working will be more clear and enhanced into pure energy.

Relationships are going to go through a strong period of adjustment during Pluto’s Retrograde cycle. There will be more love, and sharing, and more folks standing together for their lives’ causes. It’s a good time to keep a low profile as privacy can be your strongest tool during this time. It’s a time to dissolve, so do it with dignity and respect.

In your relationships, you might have been controlling, possibly holding on too tight and smothering your partner. It’s time to stop because you need to start letting go. If you have been compulsive or obsessive about food, drugs, or sex and it’s taken over your life, then certain events may actually force you to turn it around and gain control over it. Basically, the more destructive your behavior the more extreme your cycle of detoxing and withdrawal might be during this cycle. For example, if you just stopped doing something cold turkey, Pluto Retrograde makes it a very intense process.

~Pluto’s energy can be profound and will do what it needs to, to transform dark to light!

Pluto often is represented by the Phoenix, and as the Phoenix rises from it the ashes, is how it transforms us, which you may not realize at first, but you’ll know because you’ll feel it! Pluto is in the sign of Capricorn for now, and Pluto represents destruction, making order out of chaos, it helps to clear obstacles, detox, resurrect! Capricorn is the builder of the Zodiac, it likes to renovate. Together they restore and enhance with the very best materials and devices that modern times has to offer! Sustainability is what they represent. Capricorn is the Father, so he is dedicated, powerful, responsible, and stable! Also, Saturn is Capricorn’s ruling planet, so these energies will truly help us be productive, at least for those of you who put forth the effort. Intuition will be very strong, work will be focused right at the critical points where things need to get fixed or done.

It’s been a busy week on the Astrological front with the Cosmos making some pretty big shifts!

There’s been a lot of chaos over this last week, and this Sunday another planet is about to make a major move. Pluto, will start moving backward just like Saturn and Jupiter and into its Retrograde cycle.

By this summer there will be 8 planets in Retrograde, and that’s a whole lot of energy moving backward, so our lives really will slow down!

This Pluto Retrograde cycle gives us a chance to look back over the past four months, to look over our past accomplishments, and our failures as well. There’s a whole lot of revising and reassessing going on, and some of you are starting to feel blocked or restricted. The planet Pluto represents things like transformation, power struggles, and evolution. Over the next few months is a good time to think about what you’d like to let go of and release from your life, your mind, and your heart. Then you can do something with what you’ve learned once Pluto and Saturn move forward again from their Retrograde cycles in September.

Is there a bad habit you can’t quit or are you stuck in a job you can’t stand? Maybe you want out of a toxic situation or relationship. Pluto Retrograde shows you what you need to release and let go of.

~Sunday will be especially intense with Saturn, Pluto, and Mars all in the sign of Capricorn. But the whole weekend may be a bit much to handle.

The best way to describe how Pluto Retrograde affects you is to understand your personal relationship with your own power, or the power that resides inside you! This is a time where you can explore your Soul and recognize what you have control over, and especially what you don’t.

Over the next four months you can learn how to not resist or completely let go of what you can’t control, and surrender. Try not to fight it! If you happen to be in a one-sided relationship and the other person is not showing you by the actions they’re taking that they really want to be with you, then it’s time to let it go! And if you’ve been on a certain path for some period of time and trying to accomplish something and it’s not happening, let it go! The Pluto Retrograde cycle between now and September can help you see if you are on the right path or not. Just pay attention to the blocks your up against or if things are falling into place. The Universe will give you clear signs and messages.

The good thing is a few days ago the Sun moved into the sign of Taurus, and you’ll like this energy much better than the past several weeks. It will be a calmer and hopefully peaceful energy.

On Sunday Pluto begins its Retrograde cycle until late September. It’s a time to begin a very personal self-analysis.

On Monday Mars makes a nice connection to Jupiter which can make us feel excited and inspired to do something new.

April 24th the planet Venus will move into the sign of Gemini. The Gemini Sun folks might really enjoy this three-week cycle. While the rest of us can have a really good time.

Venus makes a challenging connection to Wounded Chiron, and our relationships can be painful, so it’s time to have a chat perhaps and begin some deeper healing this week.

Pay attention on April 25-27, when Mars makes a strong conjunction. This will be a strong time for arguments, power struggles, and even fights. Watch for others who like to cause drama and for those who tend to already be unhinged or hot-headed. It’s all about how you choose to react!

“Pluto Goes Direct! – Where is your Power?”

“Pluto Goes Direct! – Where is your Power?”

Have you been depressed and feeling powerless, well you should read more to learn why! Get ready folks because here we go, literally!

Since April 20th, we have been in a deep place of processing about where we have power and what we have control over. As transformational Pluto in Capricorn steadies itself out and goes direct from Retrograde today, this gives us the chance to make some solid, long-lasting changes.

Since Pluto holds immense power and Capricorn is all about structure, these two combined energies can cause things to get a bit volatile, so be careful folks, this can be over the most ridiculous things, as we adjust to Pluto moving forward again.

However, for now, our focus shifts to the powerless areas of our lives and teaches us just how to gain control of them with this commanding Pluto-Capricorn combo. The good things in our life are going to be released to us now. It’s time to learn how to let go and disengage from what isn’t working any longer and experience the freedom that comes from gaining closure from the past!

You can feel this energy, as it opens doors that help us choose the life we really want to live. Now, slowly but surely over the coming weeks, we will be able to make deep changes in our lives without having to overthink or so deeply process things first. This actually helps us get things done because we’re able to take things naturally into our own hands and make any necessary changes.

Pluto Retrograde

Rubys Astro Readings

“Personal Power”
Contrary to popular belief the planet Pluto affects our lives and even though it’s far away in the cosmos, it’s a very powerful force to be reckoned with indeed and takes us through major psychological transformations and powerful resurrections while we are here on this journey. So even though the scientist argue if Pluto is big enough to be considered a “Planet”, most Astrologers agree that its influence is significant and a powerful part of who we are!
Pluto is completely still at this time and will turn RETROGRADE TODAY all the way through September 27th. So yes folks, that’s yet another planet going into its Retrograde cycle to add to the list along with Mercury, Jupiter, and Saturn. And Venus just came out of her Retro cycle a few days ago, but she is till quite testy trying to get back to normal, which is affecting relationships in a big bad way right now!
Pluto’s influence is a seriously intense complex energy, and we might feel this sort of heaviness while under this influence over the coming months. Pluto Retro cycle runs all the way through September 28th so we will go through a process of learning how we use or abuse our own personal power! It might actually be easier for some folks because they may not be as power hungry for control during this time, and will be less in touch with their own power and choose to ignore it during this cycle.
Pluto’s Retrograde cycle is a process of growth that teaches us to hold onto our personal power, but some folks will attempt to steal your power during this cycle! Remember you can’t lose your power, but it can be taken, so it’s up to you to not give it away! Hopefully, you will come to this realization during this cycle. There might be circumstances that arise that force us to fight those who attempt to take our power or lessen our self-worth in some way, but you will get stronger and can feel empowered by the time this cycle is over when Pluto moves forward once again.
Also, remember that when you release your past emotional wounds or trauma, you will raise your vibration and any old energy will die off allowing new more positive energy to flow in. This newer energy can bring about changes that are rough along with tests and challenges, but it also provides us with new opportunities for growth and harmony once the challenges are over.

Pluto Retrograde 2016

Astro Alert by Ruby
“Pluto Retrograde”

It’s a really strange and unusual time as the Cosmos is slowing way way down!! There are going to be 5 planets total either starting or are in Retrograde this month. All the Aries energy has been pushing us to start new endeavors, but by the 25th of April we really should think very seriously before starting anything brand-new, when Mercury the planet that governs how we express ourselves also goes into Retrograde! This is more a time to focus on deep exploration of the soul, and to create hopefully some kind of positive transformation.

I’ve already covered how Saturn and Mars Retrogrades will affect us this month in seperate blogs. So now it’s time to check out what Pluto in Retrograde is all about.

PLUTO TURNS RETROGRADE APRIL 18th through SEPTEMBER 26th, 2016

This aspect is really pretty intense compared to the other Retrogrades that are starting this month. Pluto Retro takes you into the subconscious mind and can bring you great insight. You’ll be able to explore the depths of your soul during this cycle, and hopefully uncover some truths you didn’t know exsisted. This cycle also helps uncover or bring forth other people’s true motives, including your own. We get to see people for what they truly are, not what you wished they would be.

Pluto is about endings, the death of something, or the end of a chapter, and regenerations or rebirth. During Pluto Retrograde the power of regeneration is greater than any other time. This is a period when many folks will overcome illness and challenging situations. Depending on just where Pluto is transiting in your own chart, you might experience a deep emotional and psychological or even physical healing of some kind. This energy is a purge, and you probably willp feel pushed to release what’s old or outdated.

When Pluto goes Retrograde it can feel like a complete internal deep house cleansing of your Soul. So this is a good time to do some serious soul-searching, and come to a understanding around what it is you truly need from yourself, life, and others. Pay attention to what is happening in your life and what seems to be repeating. So look for old issues to pop up, (ya know the ones that remind you of your past) ones that feel the same as old issues emotionally. Then it’s time to reclaim your personal power and this can be challenging. But if you put the time into doing the work around solving, forgiving and healing these issues, Pluto will work with you. It’s a good time to detox your body, so through diet, spiritual healing or energy healing of some kind. By the way that includes Psychic Readings or Astrological Reports. All these things help us heal our soul.

Pluto Retrograde is probably the most profound of all the planetary transits over this next few months. It provides you with an opportunity to make a totally transformation from being one way to another. Think of this energy as more Psychological, this process can shake you down and make you feel like your breaking down, especially since you may feel like you have lost your stability in some way during this time. It’s imparitive to learn how to trust the Universe during this period, you must be in your power and stay in control and try not to lose your cool!

Because Pluto in Capricorn forms a challenging aspect to those with their Sun Sign in Aries, Cancer, Libra and of course Capricorn, these signs will be most affected. But we all have Pluto in our Astro “Birth” Chart somewhere and now in Retrograde, so we all have to deal with this energy in one way or another.

The strongest energy will be felt more intensely on April 18th, and then again on September 25th and 26th. But it’s the time in between those dates you should be doing some important healing work. It is believed that once you start this internal process, you’ll reap the rewards once Pluto moves forward.

If you’re curious how Pluto Retrograde will affect you personally, you may *purchase* a “One Question” Reading and ask “How will Pluto Retrograde affect me?” I will do the research and help you understand just what part of your life this rare event will help you make huge transformations in!

“Back to School”

The Moon remains in Cancer all day and evening long, this keeps us feeling sensitive, emotional, and intense. This particular time with the Moon in the sign of the Crab seems to have been especially exhausting for many of you, and it’s even made some folks feel quite sad, emotional and depressed! More than likely it’s potent side effects are due to so many planets going into Retrograde now or already in their Retrograde phases. So pay attention and please read and share my blogs, I will help guide you through this energy.

Here’s the cosmic stew currently brewing…Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, and Pluto will all be Retrograde by late next week. This energy is slowing us down and is bringing up lots of exciting and harsh lessons both. As we get used to so many planets in Retro. over the next few weeks, we may feel confused as situations and people may not make sense. Stay Flexible!! Remain calm, don’t over think and worry. Focus instead on the blessings you already have, and be grateful. If you can remain in that space in your heart, you’ll get through the fog.

And let’s not forget about the “messenger” of the Zodiac, Mercury, who is already in the “Shadow” phase before it goes Retro. on the 28th! Yea I’m sorry for lack of better words, but Mercury in Retro always just pisses me off! Yes I said it, and I meant it! If you aren’t already experiencing electronical glitches and breakdowns, consider yourself very lucky! Mercury in Retrograde is extremely annoying for most, but I must admit it also has some good affects, like it helps bring in the truth and gives us the opportunity to get obsessively organized with just about anything in our life. So Re-think, Re-learn, Re-view, Re-visit and Research during this time, do anything starting with the word “Re” and you’re good. Plan ahead and cleanse yourself and clean out your closets now! That’s what we’re supposed to be doing during Mercury in Retro. Do Not focus on the mess right now, focus on your heart, and again the love you have for yourself and life, and if you can’t find any, then you know your first lesson in all this energy, “Learn How To Love Yourself”

There’s a whole lot of planets in Fire Signs (Aries and Sagittarius) still as well, which is just heating up this Cosmic stew. So let’s think about this energy for a moment. We’re slowed down by the Retrogrades now, but maybe feeling impulsive…and maybe a little confused. The people around us aren’t quite making sense, and we’re fired up to move and take action. It’s a little crazy to be honest out there right now. We don’t know whether we should move forward like we want to or if we should stay still!

So here’s what ya should be doing during this time…I want you to simply Breathe!! As often as you need to right now, just take a deep breath and take a moment, then just take another very long deep breathe in, close your eyes and slowly exhale. Ah there don’t you feel better already? Keep practicing this, it’s that simple. My advice today and over the next few weeks is to Breathe, everytime you feel bad, if you’re confused, scared, or feeling out of control, I want you to remember to BREATHE!

The main thing to know during a Retrograde phase, is thats it’s time to be taking each planets lessons inward and do some serious spiritual work! We can literally transform ourselves, as many of my clients through different situations are already going through it, This energy may be difficult to navigate at times but it can help you do some serious healing, which will help make your life better in one area or many. The choice is yours really, and if your suffering from high-anxiety, depression, or a loss of any kind please seek help, don’t be silent, you’re not alone!

It’s best to hold off on starting anything brand-new right now, as we are standing on very shaky ground. Try to wait at least until you feel more adapted to the energies, and if you have no choice but to do something new, that’s ok, life has to go on if we like it or not. Amazing, transformational things are happening now, visualize your hopes, dreams and wishes now, stay positive and keep climbing!

Pay attention and save this Blog Post or Share it, to remind yourself over the coming months what you need to do to deal with all this energy. Be the eye of the storm and remain calm. Let the Cosmos Retrogrades show you what you need to work on and do the Work, no excuses now, it’s time for us to all go back to school and learn what we need to know to evolve, heal, learn, and grow.

Pluto coming out of Retrograde!

Friday, Sept 25th – Astro Alert 
Pluto in Capricorn – Out of Retrograde

What part of your life has been difficult, challenging and for some even downright frightening over the last five months?Early Friday morning, Pluto in Capricorn, the planet of transformation, that represents our shadow-self, is finally coming to a halt today, after being in Retrograde for 5 long months, (April 16th – Sept.25th) Pluto will be in this place through October 8th, and then will be back to its normal pace.

This has been a hard one for many of us. While Pluto was in Retrograde it helped us connect to ourselves in a deep dark way. It put us through harsh lessons and forced us to deal with issues around what empowers or dis-empowers us from the inside out. We have been shown and made to deal with issues around our own personal power in some very important areas of our lives, such as with money, our health, jobs and relationships!

Hopefully, we have learned down this darker path more about our shadow-self and what we are truly deeply passionate about and obsessed over. This Pluto Retrograde phase forced us to look at our behaviors and patterns, through some hard lesson and learn what we do that hurts us and take our power away!

Ask yourself what you are allowing to steal your joy? What are you doing or not doing to take care of yourself, in one way or another? This is all about what part of our lives have been the most challenging over the last 5 months, and what’s situations made us feel like we had no control or power in. We’ve also probably either experienced what makes us feel powerful and back in control, or at the very least have an idea of what will help us to change. Over these last 5 months we’ve had to learn how to be honest with who we are and embrace all of who we are, the good, bad and ugly!

Now is the time to prove what we can do, and let go of any habits, behaviors, or fears that have held us back from fully being living our true potential. Whatever you’ve been through or learned during this Pluto Retrograde phase about your passion, inner strength or souls path…is now ready to be realized out in the world. The deep connection we made with ourselves over these last 5 months has been a learning experience, to help you be more authentic with yourself. Get back out there and work on your long-term goals, that align more so with what you truly want!

Pluto will continue to move slowly as it gets back to its normal pace through Oct. 8th. We may have to deal with some uncomfortable feelings while waiting for this energy to pick up speed again.
