Pluto in Direct Motion

Pluto Retrograde and Puto Direct 

Pluto, despite its small size packs a tremendous punch astrologically! When Pluto is direct, its energy is active and the energy can be more easily absorbed into the cosmos. However, when Pluto (or any planet for that matter) goes retrograde the tremendous energy goes underground to a certain degree. Though the energy isn’t as visible, it remains in a smoldering manner. Indeed, the pent up energy of Pluto retrograde can be compared to that of a partially dormant volcano. This is especially true of Pluto because he rules things underground. The tremendous heat and pressure are there, but because there is no obvious eruption it is difficult to see what is going on.

On April 7, 2010 Pluto became retrograde at 5 degrees Capricorn and the energy went underground.

This banked energy was a major component of the extreme angst felt by many of us in the summer of 2010. Retrograde Pluto teamed up with Uranus, the planet of freedom and sudden change in a tense square and also squared Saturn (also retrograde at 29 degrees Virgo) the planet of restriction, all summer. In addition Saturn was in opposition (a 180 degree aspect) to Uranus. These planetary aspects created a virtual cauldron of potent energy. The tension built and built and was set off in a big way by the lunar eclipse of June 26 and the solar eclipse on July 11, 2010.  We felt the need to transform (Pluto) everything and everyone around us.  Simultaneously, we had the extreme desire to break loose and free ourselves (Uranus) from the restrictions that we keenly felt (Saturn).

Now, we are in a period when many of the formerly retrograde planets are going direct. It is time to take everything off of hold and to boldly move forward with our plans and hopes and dreams. It is very important in working with this planetary energy to mentally, emotionally and spiritually let go of the past. Failure to do so can limit our results in moving forward. Holding on to past traumas and hurts is like carrying a very heavy bag of burdens with you everywhere you go. Give yourself the gift of freedom that is part of the cosmic gift inherent in Pluto/s change of direction to its direct motion.

Though this has been an incredibly difficult summer for many of us, the one thing that I have noticed in my 30+ years of experience in astrology is that all of the planets have a gift hidden within their lessons. The lessons have been hard, but the rewards can also be great.  It is a truism in astrological counseling that if we do the hard work of flowing in tune with the cosmic forces, our lives can be exponetically enriched and our tomorrows can be fulfilling and full of love.

My wish for you is that you have the courage to prune your life of unneeded people, places and things so that the love and light can flow in. Pluto has shown you the darkness, it is now time to let your sun shine away the shadows. My prayer is that you will learn the lessons inherent in Pluto retrograde as it becomes direct and that you will emerge stronger and wiser ready for a loving, bright tomorrow.
