Pluto turns Retrograde: April 25, 2020

Pluto turned retrograde on April 25, 2020 and will be transiting back into Capricorn for the next 5 months until October 4, 2020. When retrogrades happen to a planet, we are being forced to turn that planetary energy inwards and re-think and evaluate what’s needed and what’s not.

Pluto retrograde is far different from Mercury retrograde. It is Pluto that is a suspect for the COVID-19 due to the conjunction with Saturn and Jupiter. Pluto and Jupiter will conjunct 3 times this year.

Intensifying, control, power, hidden subconscious, toxicity, secrets; these are all things Pluto represents so these are the factors highlighted under this transit that will now be turned inwards. This retrograde will help you push out anything that has brought negative emotions or hurt so you can heal by the time Pluto stations direct.

Aries, Cancer, Libra & Capricorn will feel the lessons of Pluto most intensely. Change is happening and you have no control over it. The Truth is revealed in many mysterious ways and repressed emotions come to focus to be healed. Transformation is happening and it’s time to break free from any old patterns and behaviors. It’s a time of renew and rebirth.

Do take note that this transit will be felt by society and have little destructive impacts on you as an individual due to it being a slower, outer planet. Rather, it is taken as a hit by everybody on the same wavelength.

Based on your natal placement of Pluto though, this will tell you where in your life you will feel this transit energy. This doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t stay focused and cautious with Pluto in retrograde, you should. This just means that this transit won’t be as personal as a Mercury, Venus, or Mars in transiting retrograde!
