Pluto goes retrograde in Capricorn from April 27th-October 6th. What this means is that instead of transiting in its usual pattern, it will appear to be going "backwards" for the next 6 months. Pluto is a planet I am still personally familiarizing myself with. Although I can easily connect with and channel all the other planets, it makes sense to me that Pluto is a bit more elusive or harder to detect. After all, it is considered a dwarf planet and has been cast aside in the shadows of our planetary solar system as something small & insignificant. In reality, much like the subconscious, although not easily seen with the eye or logic, Pluto and its energetic forces are often forgotten (or blissfully ignored) until they flare up and become all that you can see.
With that, when I think of Pluto I think of Hades from Hercules (God of the underworld- snarky, unforgiving, witty, a master of manipulating people, his shadows, and situations to work in his favor and get shit done). He is the archetypal counter balance to his brilliant and bold brother, Zeus, representing the external and internal duality of light and shadow within (and without) all of us. Unsurprisingly, it is no wonder that Pluto is closely associated to the more unconscious, darker aspects of life such as death, transformation, and creative destruction. With this planet going retrograde rather forward for the next 6 months, it means that this will be time to go inward and clear out anything that does not serve our highest selves.

So whether this is negative thought patterns, biases, traumas, triggers, coping mechanisms, or fear, we will release it all in order to truly tap in and shine the power and light from within us. And both we (our souls) and the world need this more than ever. As we step inward and upward, we release the fear. shame and past life karma that once came with being unapologetically and authentically ourselves . After all, no matter how much you wish the shadow wasn't there, you cannot deny it or wish it away. It and the anima are a very real, ever changing part of us all (no matter how conscious or subconscious that driving force is) and is equally as powerful and important as the light. For the shadow and all its darkness shines a light upon the wild in us, the sage, the mystic that trusts the universe, opens its arms to the unknown, and surrenders, knowing that it will somehow bring us to where we need to be. And the less we all shy away from our shadows and embrace them, the greater peace, freedom and self-love we will experience on both a individual and collective scale. Leaning into this great unfolding and the universal lessons your soul so carefully created and selected for you will help you to clear and let go of the smog (emotional clutter) and heaviness being carried in our emotional/energetic bodies. This will then allow you the clarity and peace to consciously create spaces and places externally that reflect the work within. So remember that doing the work, is the most important work you can do at this time for anyone! And whether you feel like the moon, the sun, a black hole, or somewhere in between right now, trust that you are the universe re-aligning itself, shifting, exploring, experiencing supporting, playing and laughing at itself both within and without in this journey we call life.
Much love + so many blessings

I want to take today time to celebrate you all on this journey here. I know the journey here has not been an easy one, and I know if you are one of my readers, you are here for a very divine and important reason. All the glimmers of light and sunshine that take away your breath inside of you, are who you are. Do not be afraid to release anything that holds you back or takes you away from that truth. Then, chase after the places, spaces, and people that honor this divinity within you. You deserve it!
With that, I am sending a big hug to all of my sisters
here on this earth with me now,
and for my brothers who hold the space and structure
for our wild little souls to run free
I love you!

Mars the planet that oversees desire and drive moves from fun loving, and exhilarating Gemini into free flowing and energetically sensitive Cancer from today until June 11th .
To understand what this means, one must first understand the archetype and symbolism behind the astrological sign of Cancer.
Cancers are a water sign. They are emotionally intuitive and expressive! While others may see this as a weakness, their sensitivity is actually their strength.
They are unwilling to put themselves or push themselves through what others will. What this means is that they are also more willing to let go of the places and people that do not serve their highest selves. They know they do not have to tolerate or stay by people or places who make them feel that their sensitivity or feelings are something to be ashamed about or pushed away. They actually cannot tolerate it, it is who they are and as such, Cancers must create and make spaces for things and people that celebrate them rather than condemn them for who they are!
With that, this means with Mars in Cancer, you may find yourself more firm in your feelings and channeling greater ferocity in protecting that precious inner child within. By tapping into these shadows and feelings, you allow yourself the opportunity to bring brighter clarity and light into your life, what you like and don't like, what you need or don't need, where you should stay and where you should let go. By having the bravery to explore these dark and often sensitive spaces, you will have better clarity on how to best integrate the lessons learned and exposed to you into our present timeline.
On the shadow side, it is important to note that although it is important to feel your feels, it is also important to hold yourself accountable and to not project onto others from a place of pain. We too have our own egos and past traumas or biases that we can project onto a situation! As such, it is important to be able to ground yourself enough to separate the two. Figure out what is important for you to feel and what is important for you to express. As you work on doing this, remember to speak words with love and to not stab anyone with words full of feelings. And, if you ever find yourself struggling to get your point across without being passive aggressive or tearing the other person down, remove yourself from the situation and then come back. You will thank yourself for saving you+ the other person from a lot of things that you actually did not mean to say (and trust me, I know because I am a cancer moon myself). Realize however strong or valid your feelings are, feelings are not concrete, and are fluid and can shift and change constantly, so act accordingly: with compassion, patience and/or space + loads of love! By doing so, you allow yourself the ability to both feel your feels then make a decision from a clear space that best feels most aligned to your energy now.
