Pluto turns retrograde on April 18th and turns direct on September 26th.
Every year, Pluto spends half the year retrograde. Pluto in Capricorn speaks to evolutionary changes in responsibility. What are we responsible for? Who are we responsible for? The last time Pluto was in Capricorn we had the American Revolution. Were we responsible to King of England? Was the crown responsible for us? The colonists had a dark night of the soul and then they decided to take on the British navy & army. Wives, children and families were ripped and torn apart while their sons and husbands went to war. And by the time Pluto moved out of Capricorn the dye was cast. It is not overstating the impact of Pluto in Capricorn from the 1770s, the world was not the same after it.
I believe the same will be said for our Pluto in Cap. The world will not be the same when it completes. We are past the halfway way mark. This journey began in 2008, right when the economy collapsed. Pluto moves into Aquarius in 2023 so we have seven more years of processing. My own gut says a lot of this will have to do with the changing climate. For sure. But personally we all need to consider: How do you conserve (Cap word) your resources? How do you conserve your energy? And I’m not talking about the obvious energy like oil. I’m talking about your personal energy. How can you put your emotions in a Prius and use less psyche energy? How are you a good manager? How do you show amazing discipline? How do you walk away from status but run for quality? Where do you need self – control? During the retrograde the personal work we do with Pluto will be more pronounced especially if you have any planets between 17 – 14 degrees of Aries, Cancer, Libra & Capricorn. Are you being a snake and shedding your skin? Get on with it, people. It is time.
