What is Pluto?
Pluto is a dwarf planet. A dwarf planet travels around, or orbits, the sun just like other planets. But it is much smaller. Pluto was discovered in 1930 by Clyde Tombaugh. However, there is still the ongoing debate in both astrology, astronomy and the scientific communities in general to allow Pluto to be seen as an actual planet. Pluto is only 2,300 kilometres wide. That means it is 1,400 miles wide.
Pluto Retrograde April 2018
In terms of Zodiac astrology, Pluto is the ruling planet of Scorpio. Usually when Pluto is direct in orbit and not in retrograde (meaning going backwards) the energies are about transformation, renewal, birth, and new beginnings.
However, since Pluto is in retrograde, this means that Pluto will have an impact on everyone to some degree of how we control our thoughts, our words, and our actions. In other words, we will have a difficult to let go of old habits, and even a fear of change. There is also a present fear of your personal power being taken away, or being too easily influenced.
We may all be reflecting back on our past, our past mistakes, of what we could have done, or what we have failed to do. Nevertheless, don’t allow this to dampen your spirits. Allow this time to teach you a valid lesson to know not to repeat this for your bright and happy future.
Unleashing your Inner Warrior – a time to be fearless!
While Pluto is in transit, during this phrase between now and until September 30th, 2018, this is a regular cycle of which it is in opposition to the Sun. Unlikely with all other outer planets, this little retrograde will have not as much impact or concern as other inner planet retrogrades.
This is a time of deep inner reflection, as with all retrogrades – as you review, renewal, and rejuvenate during this time. It is an excellent time to see and look at your personal power you’re your own personal control of your life. Are you valuing your own personal power? If anyone or any situation is controlling or manipulating you or your life – now is the time to let them go. Now is the time to practice your own assertiveness – not in a rude way, but to understand your own professional and personal boundaries for yourself and others.
This isn’t a time for power tripping but a time for elimination. A time to understand and realise your own habits – whether they are good or bad and take positive step to change. Think of it this way – if you want to seek change, you need to act on this change. But the most destructive behaviour or addiction, the harder it is to give it up and it won’t be easy to go cold turkey.
This is a fascinating time to seek what you are both personally and professionally passionate about. Are you driven or self-motivated to step out of your comfort zone? If you are, you can overcome any obstacle or challenge that presents itself to you over the next 5 months.
Pluto in Retrograde as well as in its transition phrase also allows you make you feel courageous, strong, and successful in both your personal and professional life. You may also feel that you are lucky in many aspects of your life. Be thankful and grateful for these wonderful experiences that will come to you.
Please remember that you don’t have to force change or have to react to unexpected change. So this is a natural development in your life associated with increased power and influence, spiritual and personal growth, wealth creation and professional advancement. Higher and Powerful forces are working behind the scenes to promote you to a higher level. A strong urge to reform something in your life will coincide with an opportunity to do just that.
Pluto will go direct (forward) on September 30th, 2018 at 18° Capricorn
