1 hour ago Most of what Pluto will ask us to destroy and renew are aspects of our lives most resistant to change. According to Astrology.com, “When Pluto retrogrades, we are given an opportunity to dive below the surface and better acquaint ourselves with this psychic, subconscious material.” This psychic subconscious material usually. PLUTO rules the SIGN of Scorpio. PLUTO spends 20 years in each Sign (Pluto’s orbit is ecliptic, like an egg, and can be anywhere from 12-31 years in a sign of the zodiac. 20 years is the average) PLUTO’S POWER AND INFLUENCE in your life can be enhanced. A person can’t — but a country can. And the United States is experiencing its Pluto return right now, the exact return — to 27 degrees of Capricorn –will occur in February of 2022. With Pluto presently located at 25 degrees Capricorn, we are well within the ‘orb’ of exactitude — a whisper away from the 2022 return. 3 hours ago Pluto retrograde is here, and its effects will last for six months. From April 27, 2021 to October 7, 2021, three zodiac signs will have a rough time, more so than others.
Pluto takes 248 years to make a single orbit around the Sun and return to its place in the birth chart. A person can’t — but a country can. And the United States is experiencing its Pluto return right now, the exact return — to 27 degrees of Capricorn –will occur in February of 2022.
Just after a powerful Full Moon in Scorpio yesterday, we’re seeing a double-dose of intensity with Pluto, Scorpio’s co-ruler, turning retrograde today. Where the Full Moon illuminated issues, Pluto retrograde will act like a magnifying glass so you can see every facet.
Retrograde just means that a planet appears to be moving backwards in the sky due to its relation to the earth. Astrologically, a retrograde planet forces us to stop and focus on what’s happening in the area of life (house) in which it’s transiting. When it’s a nice light planet like Mercury, we need to pay more attention to details or want to organize our junk drawer, but when it’s a heavy, generational planet like Pluto, things can get intense.
Pluto’s nature is to destroy and rebuild so it typically rolls through the signs like a tsunami. When it’s retrograde, it’s more like a laser, targeting specific habits, people, situations and thought patterns that are no longer working for us. It’s moving through Capricorn now, the sign of established order, old ways of doing things and conservatism, so Pluto is here to shake things up, challenge our thinking and find new (and hopefully better) ways of doing things.
Since it’s considered a general planet, its effects aren’t as immediate and many may not realize how radically things are changing. However, it can feel brutal if it’s aspecting an important house cusp or planet in your natal chart. The best approach is to accept the change and know Pluto is here to burn away what’s unnecessary so you can rise from the ashes.
Pluto will be retrograde through early October 2021.
ARIES: You could find new ways to challenge the status quo in your job or reassess if you’re really on the right path. Issues with your boss could come to the forefront now as well.
TAURUS: Situations arise that challenge your outlook in significant ways. Your faith could be shaken or strengthened depending on how you react. A need to investigate bigger truths may take hold.
GEMINI: This can be a difficult time where you need to commit to working with others on a deeper level. You won’t be allowed to just skim the surface and move on.
CANCER: Relationships come under the microscope now and you’ll need to face which ones no longer serve a purpose for you. Pluto is clearing away old relationships and patterns for something new.
LEO: Your legendary willpower will be honed by restructuring your daily habits. You have a tremendous opportunity to gain new skills that will propel you to the top.
VIRGO: The need for creative self-expression intensifies now and you have the energy to make it happen. You may devote your time to a hobby to become more proficient, or look for ways to connect more deeply with loved ones, especially children.
LIBRA: Relationships are your lifeblood but everything about your home and family seems to be undergoing a radical change right now. Before you jump into a new situation, take control and make sure it’s really what you want.
SCORPIO: You thrive in this intensity, Scorpio, and your ruler is ready to put you to the test. All of this turmoil will help you see the light and get straight to the point with others.
SAGITTARIUS: This is a chance to overhaul your financial security by scrutinizing your spending and saving. Your bank balance may resemble a yo-yo for a while, but you’ll be making better decisions by the end of this retrograde.
CAPRICORN: Pluto is in your 1st house now so expect a fundamental shift in your sense of self during this transit. Harness that transformative energy to create the life you desire.
AQUARIUS: You’re not the brooding type, but Pluto is sitting in your area of the unconscious, forcing you to do a deep dive into your own motivations. Face fears and acknowledge your dreams to find your breakthrough.
PISCES: You can be an agent for change now, breaking down the old ways of doing things and making a lasting impact on others. The changes now will affect how you work with and fit into the collective.
One of the most fascinating planets, at least for me, is Pluto. Ruler of decay and rebirth, master of my solar sign (Scorpio, that is) and one of the most powerful change agents in the Universe. Whenever Pluto hits a spot in your life, that spot won’t be the same again. Everything it touches, it transforms. Most of the time, we perceive the transformation as hurtful and traumatic, but in fact is the old skin of the snake which hurts, not the new us.
Here are some examples of what Pluto can make when it transits certain specific spots in your horoscope.
You will not be the same person again. You will undergo a brutal process of transformation which, for the vast majority of time, will seem out of your control. And that will be true, because Pluto is beyond control. You will be placed in violent circumstance which will demand huge efforts of adaptation from your part. Depending on the house in which this aspect take place, things will look different. I’ll give you my example.
My transiting Pluto made a conjunction with my natal Sun on December 16 1989, in the 10th house. For those of you who are not very good at modern history, that was the first day of the Romanian Revolution. At that time I was a soldier in the Romanian Army, with only 2 months of training. In Timisoara, the city were my unit was located, there were manifestations on the street. Some of my army colleagues were receiving orders to open fire against the insurgents.
I had the chance to be confined for 5 days in an ammunition depot (hence not being forced to go outside, in the city, and face stupid orders I wouldn’t follow anyway). There were days of chaos and confusion. I didn’t sleep for the entire period I spent in the ammunition depot, that would be more than 100 hours. After that, I wasn’t the same person as before.
As for my physical body, it was the worst experience I had so far. After I finished my 5 days shift I went to the infirmary and the moment he saw me, the doctor gave me a glass full of pills and took me out of the service immediately. Can’t remember what he said to me, but I went to sleep, after 5 nights spent in the wild. When I woke up, I took my riffle and went back to the service. I was totally refreshed, like a baby. I avoided the doctor and went straight to my outpost.
The change was brutal and violent. There was no escape from it and I had to face it. Of course, at that time I had no idea whatsoever why this is happening to me. I had no knowledge about astrology or things like that. All I was able to do was to create a survival strategy. And this is often what Pluto does: inserts into your life elements of such power and endurance, that you wouldn’t think you were capable of before that. I was mentally prepared to face a civil war for several months. In a few weeks, the violent events came to and end. In less than 3 months I was back home, relieved from service.
On a conjunction with your natal Sun, a transiting Pluto will bring you fantastic energy resources but it will strain you beyond imagination. When will i get married vedic astrology.
This is a time when your sense of reality is drastically amended. If you are doing something you shouldn’t do, like having shallow relationships , for instance, Pluto will give you something you could barely keep up with. For me, the transit took place around 1996, during the fall, in the eleventh house. At that time, I was floating around in a group of friends who weren’t the best choice I could make (to say the least). I was also quite inconstant in my romantic relationships.
During this period I met a person who changed my life completely, in a very violent way. First, she – yes, it was about a she – took me away from the group of friends I was hanging around with and moved together. Second, we had a child together, my first son. The relationship started incredibly well – the romance of Neptune was extremely strong – I was sure I was finally on the right track with my personal life.
But soon after she was pregnant I was hit with a bunch of incredible lies (the other part of Neptune, the deceptive one). Her parents were apparently not dead in an accident, as she was telling me for months, and she was just running away from home. Her father died while we were together, he was ill for years. When the moment of the birth approached I wanted to get married and even did all the administrative stuff. Only she wasn’t ready to go there yet. Years after, I was finally able to understand that the relation wasn’t something to build on, but something which was first meant to destroy my current lifestyle. So, nothing really constructive, apart from our child together.
Soon after the child was born, we decided to break up. It was again a one way decision, coming from her. 3-4 years later I endured a fantastic pressure: nothing seemed to be right or settled. She was making phone call to accuse me of everything, 4-5 times per day. I was still considered guilty for everything she was living. During this period she almost seemed possessed. And, in a very subtle way, she was: Pluto was working deep down.
At some point, I decided to see if we could be together. That was the moment when I finally started to put the work of Pluto to the good. It turned out, after spending one and a half year together, that we simply weren’t made for each other, and all that we endured was a lesson. Once learned, I was able to move on.
When you don’t do things right, Pluto can attract into your life people who are going to force you to do the right thing. It might be that you think you don’t deserve it, but believe me, you will.
Looking back at all those experiences, I can clearly see that behind every stressful aspect it was a deep desire to change and grow. Whenever I resisted growth, out of fear or indecision, the pressure increased. The more I resisted, the more pressure I got.
On a funny note, right now Pluto is going through my twelfth house, the house of isolation, karmic connections and retreat. During this period not only I isolated myself more than in any other period of my life, but I did encounter a lot of karmic connections, one of them being my wife. A lot of stuff come out in the light and every time I let it reach to the light, something good happened.
And I’m pretty sure this very article has something to do with digging up in the past and see what do I have to learn from it. Pluto is working, revealing everything that’s hidden. 🙂
