Pluto Retrograde – Taking Power Back

Pluto will be stationing retrograde on April 25th 2020 in the sign of Capricorn.

Pluto, the planet of power and transformation, begins its annual retrograde on April 25th 2020. It will remain in retrograde until October 4th 2020. Pluto’s retrograde is occurring in the sign of Capricorn, which is associated with authority, structure and responsibility.

 

Understanding Retrogrades

 

Retrogrades offer an opportunity to look at things in a new way. They give us a different vantage point and they invite us to shift our focus or change directions. 

To better understand what occurs during a planetary retrograde, imagine we are sitting on a train looking out the window. Our train speeds past a slower moving train, because we are going faster, while looking out the window it almost appears that the train beside us is moving backwards. But, that is just an illusion, and both trains are in fact moving forward.

 

Pluto Retrograde in Capricorn:

 

It’s as if Earth is the fast train moving past Pluto. Looking out from Earth it appears that Pluto is moving backwards, or retrograde. Retrogrades symbolize times of pulling back, re-thinking, re-looking, reviewing and looking within. Like a bow and arrow, we have to pull back before we can shoot forward. A retrograde is that pulling back.

It can feel frustrating if we want to force our way forward into the future; but when we recognize that there is a cyclical nature to life we can relax into the ebb and flows of retrogrades.

 

Pluto Retrograde in Capricorn: Re-Organizing Earth From Within

 

Pluto in Capricorn has been working to rebuild the ways we organize on planet Earth. It’s transforming who is in charge and who writes the rules. Capricorn energy is associated with leadership and responsibility. Who is leading us? Who are we answering too?

Retrogrades are times of turning within. Pluto’s power is diving deep into our inner realms and reclaiming our deepest selves. We are learning to be our own leaders and to be responsible to ourselves first and foremost.

self-reflection

Right now, we might look out at the external world and wish to change things. We might want to go out and make a difference. While action is always important, looking within ourselves and making deep inner changes is a big part of this transit. 

 

Pluto Retrograde in Capricorn: Being the Pilot

 

We would not try to steer an airplane from outside the cockpit. Instead, if we want to be a pilot we have to get into the place and take out rightful seat behind the wheel. We can imagine that our bodies are our vessels transporting us through life. If we want to take the lead, we have to get inside ourselves. 

This could look like meditating, journaling, eating certain foods, taking a bath or anything that connects us to ourselves.

 

Pluto in Capricorn + History

 

Astrological cycles are patterns and themes that flow throughout the centuries. How these themes manifest depends upon many factors and astrology is not necessarily creating events throughout history. Instead, it can help us to understand the context. From there, we can learn how to create the future, rather than having history repeat itself.

The last time Pluto was in Capricorn was from 1762-1778. Many events took place during those years but let’s specifically look at the American Revolution.

Beginning in 1764 the British Government began to impose new laws and taxes such as the Sugar Act, the Stamp Act and the Tea Act. Many colonists opposed these British taxes because they did not have representation in British Parliament.

In 1773, Mass meetings took place in opposition to the Tea Act, however the Royal Governor ordered that the tea taxes be paid. This led to colonials activists dumping a substantial amount of tea into the harbour, an act known as the Boston Tea Party. In response, an angry English Parliament enacted a series of Coercive Acts (also known as Intolerable Acts).

These acts essentially shut down the Boston Port and virtually ended any self-rule by colonists. The English Crown and Royal Governor assumed political power formerly held by the colonists. This led to the First Continental Congress meeting and declaring opposition to the acts. In 1775 the Revolutionary War began when British Military were ordered to disarm rebels and arrest their leaders.

During this time in history we saw citizens questioning the authority of the ruling government. We saw people organizing and aligning with what they believed. We saw taxes and laws imposed that led to activist demonstrations and protests. We saw institutions assuming political power and ending forms of self-rule. We saw opposition to the institution. While we may see echoes of this today, it’s key to remember that we have the power to create a new future. 

 

Pluto Retrograde in Capricorn: Re-Structuring the Systems

 

In the external world, Pluto Retrograde is showing us what needs revamping. What systems are not working? What leaders do we no longer want to follow? What leaders do we trust? Who are we answering too? What are the rules? Who has to follow them? Why are these the rules?

These are all loaded questions and the answers are not going to come from someone else. The answers will come when we take time to tune into our deeper selves. 

 

Pluto Retrograde in Capricorn: Personal Power

 

Right now, we are experiencing an opportunity to reclaim our personal power. This does not mean that we need to create a violent revolution or point the blame at others. Instead, we can take responsibility for ourselves. We can connect to our innate creativity. We can prioritize the impact of our thoughts and the realities they manifest. We can write our own personal constitution and live by our own morals.

revolution

There are many cycles occurring today that were not happening in the 1700s. We have more options and potential than in the past.

We are facing a time of unprecedented shifts of consciousness on planet Earth. These waves of light are waiting for us to surf them. We are gaining more and more information about who we are and what it means to be alive on Earth at this time. Instead of waiting for someone or something else to tell us the plan; we have the power to write it ourselves. 

During these times, reclaiming happiness (tap to read our article > ‘Taurus Season: Reclaiming Happiness’) is what it’s all about. If we want to change the world, during Pluto retrograde the place to start is within ourselves. 

Like a caterpillar, we are asked to turn within in order to transform ourselves. As Pluto stations direct later this year, we will emerge from this cocoon with brand new butterfly wings. Who knows where these wings will carry us.

Saturn in Aquarius March 21 – July 1

Saturn will be in Aquarius March 21 to July 1 2020. It will retrograde back into Capricorn July 1 until December 17th where it will re-enter Aquarius and remain there until March 2023.

 

Saturn Rules Physical Reality

 

Symbolically speaking, Saturn is the University professor of the Universe. His energy asks us to show up to class, do our homework and study for the exams. If we do that, he will happily grant us a good grade, but if we haven’t put in the work he will definitely fail us. Saturn is the energy of physical reality. A lot of the time people give Saturn a bad wrap. For example we might read things about limitations, blocks and restrictions when dealing with Saturn.

Let’s break down where this viewpoint comes from, and see Saturn as more than just a buzzkill. Saturn rules our physical realities. The reason we face the limits of Saturn is because our physical realities are limited. We can only lift so many weights on our first day working out. We can only eat so much food because of the size of our stomachs. That weight lifting workout might leave us a little sore. And that eating binge might leave us feeling sick.

 

Saturn in Aquarius is Asking Us to Invest

 

This is a part of life. We face consequences to our actions. There’s cause and effect. It’s a thing. We could even use the word karma to describe Saturn. Basically, Saturn asks us to invest and we get a return on what we put in.

This is embraced by some and not so easy for others. Some people have the initiative and drive to be a mover and a shaker; others like to sit back as spectators. It’s not to say there is a right or wrong way to be, however Saturn energy does not mix well when people stand back and expect handouts.

Those who want everything but aren’t willing to take action will dread cycles influenced by Saturn. However, those of us who are craving change and are willing to put in the work to achieve it thrive under this energy.

 

Saturn in Aquarius Shift Will Be Felt in Our Waking Realities

 

This is a significant shift because Saturn changes signs approximately every two and a half years. Due to the fact that Saturn is intimately connected to physical reality, this shift is something that will be felt in our waking lives.

This epic tale is playing out in the energy of Aquarius. Collectively, we will all experience this energy is one way or another. Some will choose to integrate this information into their conscious lives, others may only experience it subconsciously. Either way this current of energy is flowing all around us.

 

Saturn in Aquarius is Living like the Beehive

 

To understand the energy of Aquarius we can use the analogy of a beehive. Aquarius energy is about working together towards a purpose. It’s associated with doing something as a team and working together.

Through the lens of Aquarius energy we are all connected. This isn’t only in an abstract type way but also in a literal sense. This interconnection among humanity is not an excuse to wait for someone else to take action; instead it’s a reason to get real because what we chose to do as individuals affects us all.

Aquarius energy wants to serve humanity. We can ask ourselves, the question, “how can I serve? What can I give?” but in order to answer these questions we first have to take a nice look in the mirror.

 

Saturn in Aquarius Wants us to Give Our Gifts

 

What’s the best thing to give? It’s what comes naturally to us. Would we try to give advice to someone on a topic we know nothing about? Would we try to tutor someone in math if we’ve failed that course? Definitely not. We teach the things we know and the same goes for how we can be of service to humanity.

This means we have to get up close and personal with our gifts. We must embrace our innate natural abilities and commit to taking them seriously. This doesn’t mean we have to stress about how we are going to market ourselves or sell our art. It just means we commit to seeing our creations as gifts that have ripple effects into the world. As we focus on creating that ripple we will be surprised how everything else falls into place.

ripple effect

Things falling into place does not mean we sit back and wait, remember Saturn likes us to take action. However, it does mean there are certain times for us to let go of control. If we don’t know what to do next, then focus on what we do know.

Let’s say we have an idea for a new online course we want to give to the world but we don’t know how to do the email marketing everyone is telling us we need to do. We can focus on what we do know; sharing our skills. We can focus on writing and having fun creating. Then let’s say we meet someone who can help us with the business side of things; that’s when it’s time to take action.

 

Inaction is a form of action

 

Waiting until the right moment is a strategy Saturn values because of its efficiency. Grasping for control or trying to do everything ourselves is not the point of this energy. However, waiting because we are uncomfortable or afraid is not the point either. The name of this game is to understand that as individuals we face certain limits trying to do it alone. We cannot be in total control or do-it-all.

 

Saturn in Aquarius is Showing We’re in This Together

 

This is what Saturn is Aquarius is teaching us. That we are all leaders while simultaneously followers. That we are all teachers but also students. We will be good at some things and not so great at others. We are all players on the same field.

The lesson now is to live from that space. To see how interconnected we all are and how important it is to take action from that place of awareness. To be a force of change in the world we must bring our creations to life.

Kindness and compassion towards everyone including ourselves will go far. Taking action towards something we care about, even if it’s uncomfortable is key. Learning about the experiences of those who are different from us is mandatory. Standing up to injustice and centering as a force of peace is what will usher in these revolutionary times.

The change is here. We are all a part of it. What we do individually matters on a collective scale. Our energy creates a ripple. What vibration are you choosing to be?  What waves are you making?

 

The Saturn in Aquarius Return

 

Those born between the years 1991 and 1994 will be experiencing what is known as the Saturn return during this transit. Those born between 1989 and 1991 are completing their Saturn returns. Although there can be some fear based information out there regarding this transit, it’s an extremely empowering time. It’s a cycle that occurs between the ages of 28 and 30. It’s a coming of age. It’s an opportunity to take responsibility for our lives and commit to the direction we are heading. If we feel like we are on the wrong track we can always change lanes.

Mercury Moves Direct

March 9 4:49 am UT

This is a welcomed shift from the foggy and confusing astrology transits we’ve been immersed in. Mercury retrograde began on February 9th 2020 and since then a lot has been up in the air. This change of pace will allow us to wrap our minds around things. We will begin to get a better idea of how to move forward with our ideas, dreams and intentions. 

 

Mercury Enters Pisces

March 16 8:42 am UT 

Mercury is the planet of logic and rationality and while it travels through Pisces from March 16th until April 11th. During this time we are asked to remember not everything in life needs to make logical sense. For example, we don’t need to understand the biology of our cells in order to heal a cut on our skin. Whether we “get it” or not our skin will heal. This is a time period of embracing the magic life has to offer, even if it makes absolutely no sense. 

 

Uranus Sextile True Node

March 19th 10:43 pm UT

Uranus is the planet of change and innovation. The True Node represents what we are collectively learning and heading towards. This astrology transit may shake things up. Here we are asked to let go of control, be open to new directions and be open to surprises.

 

Equinox: Sun Enters Aries, Aries Season Begins

March 19th 4:49 am UT

When the Sun shifts into Aries we experience a new zodiac year. Although we are nearly 3 months into 2020 we could still feel as if we’re caught up in the old or in a phase of purging. The Equinox is a fresh start. It’s a time to shake off the old and welcome the new. It’s a time of envisioning what we want to paint on the canvas that is our lives. 

 

Vesta Enters Gemini

March 21 6:06 am UT

Vesta is an asteroid named after the Goddess of home and hearth. Her energy is associated with taking care of ourselves, our family and where we land at the end of the day. Gemini’s energy is about being stimulated and having fun. This transit is asking us to be open to expanding our definition of safety and to enjoy ourselves at home. We can also imagine that home is a place inside of us. As we connect to our inner space, may we flutter around in true Gemini fashion; taking home with us wherever we go.

 

Saturn Enters Aquarius

March 21 4:58 am UT

This is a big deal because Saturn only shifts signs every 2.5 years. The last time this change occurred was at the end of 2017. What have we learned since then? What have we accomplished? Saturn’s energy likes to assign lessons and with this shift comes new adventures in the area of Aquarius. Aquarius is all about being of service and helping the greater good. This will be in focus over the coming years as Saturn travels through Aquarius until 2023.

 

New Moon in Aries Season

March 24 10:28 am UT

A New Moon is a time of fresh beginnings. It’s a time when the Sun and the Moon align and this acts as a sort of reset button. The Sun represents our conscious awareness and the Moon our subconscious. When the two come together on a New Moon we have an opportunity to set our sails and head in a new direction.

 

Mars Enters Aquarius

March 30th 8:43 pm UT 

Mars is the planet of action and it infuses a dose of “making-it-happen” wherever it transits. Aqaurius is the constellation of the greater good, helping the whole and embracing our inner humanitarians. As Mars transits through Aquarius from March 30th to May 13th we are invited to explore how our individual actions can make an impact on the collective.
