Pluto retrograde is happening from May 1, 2023 to October 10, 2023. Five full months of expansion opportunity. That little tiny rock floating so far away is having a subtle but substantial impact on the world.
This Pluto retrograde will be a time for us to reflect on our relationships with power and authority, as well as our place in the world.
Pluto is very much TOWER energy…meaning just like the Tower card in tarot, Pluto is all about destruction for the sake of starting fresh and rebuilding.
This can be a time of great transformation, but it is also important to be patient and allow ourselves the time and space we need to heal and grow.
Retrograde Meaning in Astrology
When a planet is in retrograde, it appears to be moving backwards in the sky relative to its normal orbit. This is only a trick of the eye, but it does shift the way we process the energy of that planet from our vantage point here on Earth.
Whenever any planet goes retrograde, it’s a time of “re.” Rethinking, redoing, replanning, reorganizing, reconsidering, revisiting, etc. This is a time to double check our work before moving onto the next stage.
Now that Pluto is in retrograde, we are revisiting themes of authority, structures, organizations, and all the other things I’ll mention in a moment.
Pluto In Aquarius 2023
Rethinking the collective landscape regarding human rights issues, rebellion, technology, and innovation. Over the next month or so, expect to see this subtle, but mighty, pushback from the 99% to make the world a better place for EVERYONE.
Established organizations, traditions, beliefs, and relationship dynamics are going to fall apart completely, and this will give us, the people, the collective, those who AREN’T in power, a chance to rebuild what we KNOW our people need.
There’s this desire to no longer let those people in power (who are not looking out for the best interests of the collective) have such immense control and influence is strong within everyone right now.
This is why we’re seeing so much social upheaval and the push for massive changes, especially in capitalism. Of course there have been lots of humanitarian issues popping up over recent years (war, world leaders, pandemics, civil rights, etc.).
Pluto in retrograde is supporting this chaos in the absolute best way possible. Here are some things you can expect during Pluto retrograde in Aquarius:
- You may feel a need to break free from old patterns and structures.
- You may question authority and power.
- You may feel a need to create new structures and systems that are more aligned with your values.
- You may feel a sense of urgency to make changes in your life.
- You may experience setbacks and challenges.
- You may feel like you are going through a period of transformation.
It is important to remember that Pluto retrograde is a time of introspection and reflection. It is a time to let go of the old and make way for the new. Be patient with yourself and allow yourself the time and space you need to heal and grow.
Pluto will be in retrograde in Aquarius until June 12, 2023. Then it will switch signs to Capricorn, while remaining retrograde until October 10. At which time it will station direct in Capricorn. I will keep you updated on all of it! So stay tuned!
