Pluto turns retrograde—April 16-17 through September 24-25, 2015 in the sign of Capricorn.
A planet in retrograde (moving backwards in the sky) directs us toward inner work on our psyches and emotions.
Pluto requires self-examination and the resolve to take charge of our own lives.
How can I challenge myself to grow, and what changes will be required of me in order to facilitate this growth?
Pluto in retrograde affords insights into the subconscious and we become hyper aware of our inner tides. We are more intuitively insightful of our own motivations and the motivations of others.
We may even become wary or suspicious of others at this time especially around issues of money or position.
But this focus on others is simply a distraction from completing our own work.
Pluto is ruled by Scorpio, that watery, mystical, secretive, introverted sign. Scorpio is associated with transformation, death and re-birth and our continual struggle between the spiritual and the material.
One can ask themselves these questions:
What do I need to release?
What do I need to re-evaluate?
What do I need to address with courage in my life, as the root cause of my unsettled and restless feelings?
Pluto shows us the things we need to renew in order to cleanse our life or makes us reevaluate our behaviors. It shows us the very core of our problems and how to fix them.
