Pluto moves quite slowly and only travels through a few degrees of the zodiac every year.
This slow movement means that this planet gets the time required to dig its heels into the gifts that it presents us to each degree of the zodiac.
The retrograde of a slow-moving planet, like Pluto, is one that we cannot notice on a conscious level.
Retrogrades occur when a planet moves backward from our perspective on planet Earth. Since Pluto hardly moves, its backward motion cannot be seen clearly, at least not with our naked eyes.
It is quite different for our Third Eye, which gets activated under the Pluto retrograde.
Pluto’s movements might be slow on the surface, but it moves very strongly in our subconscious and on the hidden layers.
It is believed that when a planet entered retrograde, it traveled through the underworld and unearthed hidden secrets and messages that linger in the darkness.
Since Pluto is the Lord of the Underworld, this dark energy is enhanced. The ruler of the underworld is being invited to take care of his own shadows in order to rip out anything that does not have its place there.
The Pluto Retrograde In 2022
The Pluto retrograde begins on April 29 and is expected to align perfectly with the natal pluto of the US.
Pluto made this alignment in the US, first, on February 22, 2022. It will now revisit the same and dig up shadows in the closet that need to come to light or under focus.
This is also the third last time that this planet will retrograde in Capricorn. The lessons are expected to increase in intensity as it is getting ready to wrap up its journey after 10+ years.
Pluto is a massive force of transformation and is a ruler of the cycle of death and rebirth. It has been working hard to usher in change for huge governments and corporations, which are the areas that are touched by the Capricorn-Pluto combination.
Pluto has several other jobs to do and by the time it leaves, it should help the collective make positive transformations in certain areas.
Pluto is currently entering retrograde at a time when we can reflect on our own transformations.
You should ask yourself how have you transformed yourself since the last Pluto retrograde in October 2021 and whether you have used Pluto’s energies to confront your darker self.
Pluto is the embodiment of death and rebirth. The painful sides of such transformations come under the magnifying glass under a Pluto retrograde.
We become more sensitive to these things which then allows us to gain strength and clarity to see how far we have come.
If you made difficult and life-changing decisions in October 2021, you will see that new insights are being revealed to you and you will find different avenues of how to approach a certain thing.
One way to look at this is to think of Pluto stationing direct in October 2021 as the “rebirth” and the retrograde as the “death”.
You should keep in mind that Pluto’s energy is very delicate. Its movements are slow which offers us time to adjust and grieve since the idea of loss is a scary thing. You will get the required time to wait and figure out the things that need to be done.
How To Use The Energy Of Pluto Retrograde
Retrogrades are strong when they start and end, so October 8 and April 29 are the best dates to use their energy.
Think about the changes in your life since October 2021 and how you can alter these changes. You should reflect and contemplate your desires and get in touch with your darker self to bring things to light.
This is the perfect time for you to confront the things that you are afraid of and release what is not under your control.
The Pluto Retrograde is the best time to step into your power.
