Proserpina, Pluto’s bride, of spirit realms divine,
Guide us through thy underworld and wisdom serpentine.

All life and death through thee doth flow-
Infernal queen deep seeds do sow,
That we may dream unfettered flights
and soar within thy starless nights.

All dark shades do thee command
in shadows rich in Hades land.
Now Bring us to thy serpent dance
that turning, twining, causes trance.

Proserpina, Pluto’s bride, of spirit realms divine,
Guide us through thy under world and wisdom serpentine
EVOE Proserpina!

Pluto Retrograde

Pluto Retrograde

Feel the effects of transformational Pluto’s dark side

Tarotcom StaffTarotcom Staff on the topics of retrograde planets, pluto, astrology

Sure, Pluto was demoted in astronomy back in 2006. But in Astrology, Pluto is one of the most unpredictable planets, and it will be even more unpredictable as Pluto goes retrograde in the serious sign of Capricorn from April 14 to Sept. 22, 2014.

At times, deep Pluto is a cosmic detective, determined to find the real story; other times Pluto is like an outspoken dinner guest who blurts out secrets and reveals hidden truths about everyone at the table.

When a planet goes “retrograde,” or, appears to be moving backwards through the sky, it often creates a “Bizarro World” of everything it stands for — communication planet Mercury Retrograde creates miscommunication, for example. But Pluto’s backward shift doesn’t make us confused, it makes us reflective. Instead of Pluto creating sticky situations in the outside world, it forces us to look inward.

First, it’s important to realize that Pluto was named after the Roman god of the underworld — aka, the land of the dead. Like its namesake, the planet Pluto rules over the shadow side of everything and everyone. So when Pluto is charged up and moving direct (forward), issues of corruption and buried stories may surface; we could learn that a politician has been taking bribes, a celebrity has been having an affair, or that a friend has been saying negative things about us behind our backs.

When Pluto brings out your dark side

So when Pluto goes retrograde, it forces us to focus on our own personal shadow sides — specifically, the unpleasant parts of our personalities that we may not really like. Two big themes that Pluto likes to highlight are power and desire. With Pluto retrograde, we’ll have to get honest with ourselves about how much we’re motivated by a need for recognition, money and authority.

At the same time, we might have to confront the darker sides of what we want; for example, are you working hard to get in shape because you are truly concerned about your health, or are you spurred by a desire for revenge on an ex who didn’t appreciate you?

With Pluto retrograde for five months, this period of personal reckoning allows us to do a lot of purging, too. Once we see traits in ourselves that we dislike, we can work to improve them. We can also revisit old hurts and hang-ups as Pluto sheds light on the darker corners of our experiences. In this way we can grow, which highlights Pluto’s key role in our lives: transformation.

Your Daily Cosmic Calendar for Friday, April 4th

Today is not nearly as intense and uncomfortable as any of the last three days, but it is also no pushover and cake walk. The celestial bodies are still messing around and acting uncouth as Mercury forms a contra-parallel with Uranus (2:41AM), Venus forms a frictional, 45-degree tie with Pluto (4:41AM), Mercury makes an off-kilter, 150-degree connection with Pallas (9:27AM) while Mercury makes the same kind of 150-degree connection with Vesta (5:13PM). Mercury,  Pallas, and Vesta are in cahoots — creating what is known as a Finger of God or Yod triangle in the heavens. These kinds of geometric formations always carry a certain amount of unknown energy — although the realms of communication, transportation, and health appear to be involved in the equation. Because Pallas and Vesta are in the mix, problem-solving — especially related to investment planning and safety-security measures — may be uneven or extra difficult. A supportive, 60-degree sextile from the Moon in Gemini to the Sun in Aries (8:58AM) — along with a research-activating, 72-degree contact between Mercury and Pluto (4:58PM) — are the universe’s way of trying to be Mr. Nice Guy for a change of pace. It is to your advantage to look ahead to this weekend when Venus will enter the sign of its exaltation, Pisces, on Saturday while the Moon cozies up to high-minded, King of the Gods Jupiter in their monthly rendezvous on Sunday.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Monday, March 24th

Our frustration may prompt us to impulsively jump into an argument today as communicator Mercury creates a troublesome alignment with warrior Mars. Even if we say exactly what’s on our minds, we still could be left with a feeling of not being heard. Expressing our emotions is complicated now that the Moon is visiting stoic Capricorn, and her conjunction with suspicious Pluto certainly adds an uncomfortable edge to an intense interaction.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

If your life has recently taken a serious turn, adopting a sensible approach to your current responsibilities helps you make the most of this challenging day. Don’t try to sidestep any emotional intensity now because your feelings can teach you something useful about yourself. The more you’re able to concentrate on what you need today, the more effective you are in overcoming your own resistance to change. Demonstrating your willingness to face the issues inspires others to do the same

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

You are truly a force to be reckoned with because you can accomplish nearly anything you set your mind on today. But making choices is still a bit overwhelming because you’re aware of the significance of your current decisions. You can breathe a bit easier if you simply remember that the most practical course of action is now the most intelligent one. It’s not wise to take any foolish risks; patience works in your favor. One small step at a time will lead you to a promising future.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

You may seem somewhat contentious to those around you today, but you’re truly not looking to create any additional conflict. It’s just that you might not take the time to think about the impact of your words now. You know you’re telling the truth, so you believe it’s unnecessary to stop and consider that you could be stirring up a hornet’s nest. Remember, everyone doesn’t need to know everything that you do. A little compassionate discretion will go a long way to keep the peace.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

You could be impressed by a coworker’s level of commitment today, even if your plan is completely different. But if you enter into a debate with those who oppose your ideas now, your frustration builds and can eventually outweigh any admiration you might have had. You would be wise to keep an open mind while discussing the merits of the various alternatives on the table. Nevertheless, it’s never advisable to negotiate away your core values.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Don’t be surprised if you are the brunt of someone’s anger because you’re not the easiest person in the world to get along with today. You may even engage in a public confrontation with a coworker now, which creates additional problems. Although an argument causes unwanted stress, others will respect you for standing up for yourself as long as you don’t take it too far. Paying attention to the cues of those around you could help you dissipate the tension before it reaches a boiling point.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Sometimes it’s nearly impossible to sort through all the details. However, you are the one who seems to be able to put enough of the small pieces of a puzzle together today so you can see the big picture. People depend on your holistic thinking now, so there’s no reason to hold back when sharing your advice. Trust your intuition but don’t lose sight of your common sense; your moral compass will lead you in the right direction.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You have something important on your mind today, but it’s not that simple to share it with your peers. Every time you approach the topic, others appear to grow uncomfortable and change the subject. However, you can see things that are not apparent to anyone else and you’re not willing to pretend that you know less than you do. Remember, if you’re going to be the one who sounds the alarm, at least do it with kindness and without blame. Choose your words carefully so you don’t alienate your audience.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Your closest friends may attempt to avoid you for a while today because they can tell you have something on your mind that they aren’t ready to hear. Meanwhile, the Moon’s conjunction with powerful Pluto bolsters your emotional intensity and emboldens your courage. Just remember that your words might be more searing than you realize if you let them pass your lips uncensored. A little self-restraint makes a lot of difference in the successful delivery of your message. A spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You’re so passionate about your beliefs today that you temporarily forget about the facts. However, others won’t let you get away with sloppy thinking now and they continue to confront you with the truth. Rather than becoming overly defensive and taking a stand based on self-righteousness, make every attempt to listen to what is actually being said. This is not about you — or anyone else — being right or wrong; it’s about keeping an open mind and finding clarity on a subject. Sometimes it takes a village to get it right.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You want to make sure that everyone knows exactly where you stand on a controversial issue today as the evocative Moon connects with ruthless Pluto in your 1st House of Personality. You’re ready to express your passionate perspective every chance you get. But a volcano derives its strength from the intense heat that is simmering beneath the surface. Likewise, you have a chance to increase your power by choosing what to say on your own terms. Carefully controlling your message gives you the chance to create the impact you desire.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

People may stir up trouble today by accusing you of something you didn’t do. You might feel personally attacked or even betrayed by someone you once trusted. Unfortunately, it’s probably too late now to return to the way things were. Even if your pride is hurt, think twice before retaliating because your unrestrained anger could escalate a minor problem into a major conflict. Step back and count to ten before you say something you’ll quickly regret. Take the high road and see who follows.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

You might not have the ability to accomplish your long-term goals on your own, but you have access to all the tools you need once you recognize that the resources are within your network of friends and associates. Keep in mind that no one person is the center of authority now, so you could lose control as soon as you attempt to consolidate it. Remember, cooperation is much more effective than any attempts at global domination. Your success is all but assured when you realize that you are part of a greater whole and act accordingly.

Daily Cosmic Calendar for Tuesday, February 25th

As the second month of 2014 begins winding down toward the beginning of March, the next ten days will see a flurry of major planetary alignments as well as celestial stations — where key bodies in our solar system appear to stop from the Earth’s perspective to move either retrograde or direct.  Right now, Pluto attempts to seize center stage by making its monthly union with the Moon in Capricorn (8:22AM) while Pluto also forms a fairly rare, 60-degree rapport with Chiron in Pisces (2:36PM). Intensity and extremes are always huge potentials when Pluto makes an appearance in the human domain. Tuning into your spiritual willpower and laser-like mental concentration will give you a clear boost.  The Moon and Venus attempt to ratchet up love vibrations and their romantic frequency as these two goddesses of the heavens parallel (6:05PM) and then unite in Capricorn (9:18PM). What may keep the love boat anchored at shore are a somewhat dour Moon-Saturn parallel (9:00PM) and a far more unpredictable, surprising square between Jupiter in Cancer and Uranus in Aries (11:30PM).  Whatever stability and reassurance you can muster around these time-periods can become a saving grace. With a little maneuvering and clever attitude-shifting, the frictional nature of the Jupiter-Uranus 90-degree aspect could turn into a tour de force — providing you with a cornucopia of insights on the cutting edge of science, medicine, and arcane studies. [Note to readers: All times are calculated for Pacific Standard Time. Be sure to adjust all times according to your own local time so the alignments noted above will be exact for your location.]

Daily Feng Shui News for Feb. 18th – ‘Pluto Day’

It was on this date in 1930 that ex-planet Pluto was discovered. On this ‘Pluto Day,’ download an image of Pluto’s glyph and reproduce it in cornmeal on the threshold of your entryway door. It is said that doing so will attract the formidable attributes that Pluto is famous for. Considering that Pluto wields considerable power, you can expect to feel pretty potent after enacting this exercise. Let the cornmeal blow away or sweep it away after leaving it in place for twenty-four hours.

Daily Cosmic Calendar for Friday, February 14th

Keep enjoying the fun-and-games, ebullient atmosphere that the lunar orb in Sagittarius seems to usually encourage every month. In addition, key relationships can benefit from greater, in-depth understanding by partners since Juno forms a sextile with Pluto (3:53AM).  The Moon in Sagittarius begins a void limbo time-span — starting at 2:03PM and lasting until 9:05PM when the lunar orb enters hardworking, determined Capricorn. During the void limbo zone, strive to maintain your productivity in major fields of expertise as the Moon contacts Ceres via a supportive, 60-degree rapport (7:15PM). Insights abound shortly thereafter when Pallas in Virgo forms a polarity with Chiron in Pisces (7:56PM).  With the Moon still in void mode, Mercury makes a flowing trine in air signs with Vesta (8:35PM). This potentially auspicious alignment should be utilized once the Moon is in practical, resourceful Capricorn terrain (9:05PM). [Note to readers: All times are calculated for Pacific Standard Time. Be sure to adjust all times according to your own local time so the alignments noted above will be exact for your location.]
