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
