Can you feel the pull of deep introspection, of tough questions, and of taking back power in your life? Pluto starts its retrograde motion on Sunday April 22, and begins moving forward again from September 30, going from 21°17′ to 18°45’ of Capricorn.
“What matters most is how well you walk through the fire”
Pluto rules over secrets, the subconscious, self-empowerment, and transformation. With the retrograde, the searchlight is cast within, lighting the way to the darkest recesses of our soul. It forces us to face our less noble emotions, needs, and wants, with no half-truths left standing by the end of it. Sometimes our biggest battle is raging within ourselves. Sometimes we have to let go of what once meant the world to us, not because we want to, but because we need to grow and evolve. Isn’t Spring that much sweeter after the sobriety of winter? Any darkness and pain that are currently weighing on our subconscious will float up to the surface. We will gain clarity on what we can and cannot control in our life. If we are in self-denial or wasting a lot of energy obsessing over things we cannot change, this is our chance for a clean slate. By October, the person looking back in the mirror will be unrecognisable from now, and quite a few hidden truths will have been revealed.
