Hello lovely ones and happy Tuesday!
Yesterday, cosmic powerhouse Pluto began his annual retrograde.
His retrograde lasts approximately five months and starts at 21 degrees Capricorn and ends at 18 degrees Capricorn.
Check where you have these degrees of Capricorn in your chart and also any planets in Capricorn at these degrees (also see the Soulstrology zodiac guide at the bottom of this blog to see the general life areas of this transit for your sun and rising sign).
Pluto retrograde is not to be feared. As with the other bigger, outer planets such as Jupiter and Saturn who recently began their annual retrogrades, the retrograde motion of Pluto does not have so much of a visceral effect on our lives.
However Soulstrology says that does not mean that we should underestimate Pluto's retrograde motion which is a powerful cosmic window to work with.
Over the next six months we can all look at issues of power and control, both of which are very Plutonian themes.
As I am sure you are all aware by now, Pluto is over halfway through a very potent transit of Capricorn.
Capricorn in the natural zodiac rules success, status, power, ambition, career but ultimately our soul's legacy.
These are areas of life which many of us will grapple with over our lifetimes.
Soulstrology tells us that we can create power within ourselves, we can experience it externally.
But in order to do so we must have control over our egos and shadow selves.
We must learn not to need to control external circumstances but rather to control our reaction to external circumstances.
We must learn to become powerful within our psyches and to own that power regardless of our seeming power or status to the outside world.
It may seem easier said than done but I hope that over the next six months this is something each of us can work on to create a shift within ourselves that will then birth a shift in our lives.
This week as La Luna grows to fullness and illuminates matters in each of our lives I ask each of you to look at what is being brought to the surface and to ask yourself if the themes of power and control may be playing a role in what is being highlighted by the cosmos.
I will be writing more on this in the forthcoming Scorpio Full Moon blog which I will share here later this week/early weekend.
But for now, perhaps listen to one of the soundbaths, meditate and journal on these themes of power and control and how they may be playing out in your life.
