On October 6, 2021, Pluto Retrograde goes Direct, and how it affects you largely depends on its placement in your natal chart.
We associate Pluto with the following energetic correspondences and attributes:
At the time Pluto went retrograde, it was moving through the sign of Capricorn, making this retrograde the perfect time to work with themes in our lives such as discipline and career, and the shadows within them.
We are living in transformational times, with the ‘Age of the Aquarius’ upon us, and with many other historical alignments of celestial bodies. Some astrologers believe the Age of Aquarius began on the vernal equinox, on March 20, 2021 in the northern hemisphere. Others feel the Age of Aquarius began with the conjunction between Jupiter and Saturn (one of those historical celestial alignments mentioned) that occurred in December 2020. There is no firm agreement about when the Age of Aquarius began. One thing is certain though–the Age of Aquarius is all about hope and innovation.
We can heal the more shadowy aspects of ourselves (Plutonian energies) with the Aquarian energy hope. Hope is a powerful energy which emanates an extremely high vibrational frequency. It lends itself to the natural raising of our own vibrational frequency, which is key to the efficacy of our magick, and in healing our emotional and psychological selves.
As mentioned, a few of the magickal and astrological energies associated with Pluto are transformation, control, death and rebirth. These ‘darker’ topics are not ones that typically come up in everyday conversation. More often, they are avoided, and even repressed into our subconscious minds.
Herein lies the power of Pluto in retrograde: It allows us to gently reflect upon and acknowledge the darker, more shadowy things we don’t like to think about ourselves. Things that once acknowledged, can lead to tremendous transformation in our lives.
Pluto retrograde is a time for reflection. While Pluto was retrograde, we were more inclined to turn inward and bury our deepest truths and wishes.
However, Pluto Direct urges us to confront the darkest parts of ourselves, to go beyond merely acknowledging them. Pluto Direct urges us to take action.
Control is an example of shadowy Pluto energy. Do you feel controlled or manipulated in some way? Are you controlling or manipulating a person or situation in some way? As Pluto goes direct, energetically it is the perfect time to examine this and actively do something about it.
Themes that need to be addressed play out in our lives in one way or the other, over and over again. Are you aware of your patterns? Do you wonder why things never seem to change? Negative patterns and the situations they create remain in play until they have been acknowledged and worked through. It’s the Universe’s way of getting our attention so we may heal and transform ourselves and our lives. Working with planetary energies, Pluto in particular, is a powerful way to achieve this.
Still wondering how Pluto Retrograde going Direct affects you? Knowing Pluto’s placement in your birth chart is key to effectively working with its powerful energies. Pluto is currently transiting Capricorn during this retrograde. Therefore, simply discovering where Capricorn is in your chart can help you understand more about how celestial energies affect you, and how you can best work with them.
How? For example, Capricorn energy is all about discipline, persistence, ambition, career goals and the ultimate worker. If Capricorn is in the Tenth House in your chart, career may be your predominant theme at this time, along with Plutonian undercurrent energies such as control, power and money. The specific alignments in your birth chart directly indicate how Pluto Retrograde and Pluto Direct will personally affect you, and how to work with them for your highest good.
It’s fascinating how planetary alignments affect each of us personally. The way in which celestial bodies were aligned at the moment we were born is the basis of our natal birth chart. This alignment is a ‘snapshot’ of that moment in time.
Your birth chart (natal chart) is the ‘road map’ to who you are. It is a guide that shows you who you are meant to be, and can help guide you through your soul’s journey by informing you of what you are here to experience. This Divine, esoteric knowledge opens a world of possibilities, success, and joy to you.
We all need to understand how planetary, zodiacal and retrograde energies play out in our lives. Your birth chart can give you a greater awareness of your purpose and what you are here to experience. Through it, you will navigate your life and anything the cosmos brings your way with greater ease, surety and confidence.
Who you are is written in the stars!
Whenever Pluto Retrograde goes Direct, or any other planet for that matter, your birth chart will be your guide as to how It affects you!
