Today Pluto in Capricorn stations retrograde until Oct 6 2021. The God of the Underworld has been transiting Capricorn since 2008 and will remain in the Cardinal Earth sign until 2023, making this one of the last few Pluto in Capricorn retrogrades for some time. Retrogrades are always a great time for regrouping, recharging, reviewing, reflection and renewal.
Ruler of Scorpio, and Lord of the Underworld, Pluto is the master of emotional alchemy. No one can control, direct and clear their energy quite like Pluto. Deeply intuitive, Pluto knows what tools to use, and when, to transmute emotional back log. Lord of the Underworld Pluto knows when something is over and has the strength and courage to end it.
With Pluto in retrograde the next 5 months are an excellent time to excavate and review our relationship to the themes of power, control and transformation, especially as they relate to the areas of work, long term plans, structures, systems, government, discipline and criticism. This is an excellent time to reevaluate and consider what needs to change and what supports you need to see your transformation through to the finish line (when Pluto leaves Capricorn in 2023).
What are you desperately holding onto that needs to be composted?
What tools and supports can you call in to support you with emotional release?
What are you ready to let die once and for all?
Perhaps, like so many, the last 10+ years have shown you just how little control we have over our long-term plans. That economic recessions, climate change, pandemics, systemic violence and oppression brutally squash even our best laid plans. As we slowly approach the ending of the Pluto in Capricorn transit (2023) may we be courageous enough to give up the long-term dreams and plans that just aren’t working, creating space for something new to emerge. May we redirect our energy to the places we can effect change and transformation. May we lay the colonial empire to rest and truly be reborn.
