Although Pluto has not been officially part of the planets of the solar system since 2006, it still has a very important astrological influence. Pluto entered the retrograde cycle on April 25 and will be until October 4, influencing all the signs of the zodiac in a more or less intense way.
This period can be viewed as a phase of metamorphosis and deep purification. Think about this: Sometimes you have to go through the dark to get to the light, and that is precisely the essence of Pluto.
Ironically, this celestial body is both the darkest darkness and the brightest light; it is the shadow that lingers in the depths of your unconscious but when it is realized, it is the very source of renewal.
Retrograde Pluto is there to bring you closer to your power, but before you can experience the magic of this metamorphosis, you must first surrender to its energies in order to deal with the complex things deeply rooted in you because they can stifle your spiritual growth.
Here’s what retrograde Pluto has in store for you, based on your zodiac sign:
