Pluto Retrograde

Feel the effects of transformational Pluto’s dark side

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 is retrograde in the serious sign of Capricorn from now to Sept. 25, 2015.

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.

On Life after the Uranus/Pluto Square

On Life after the Uranus/Pluto Square

a message from Sarah Varcas

Uranus and Pluto have received a lot of air time since 2012 when they began to form their lengthy square that is currently fading into history. The impact of this square, which has shaken up countless peoples’ lives, has been impossible to ignore. For many, looking back to life pre 2012 is like watching a different person, barely recognisable in some cases. So much has changed, within and without, that the notion of total rebirth is not too drastic a description of the events of recent years. Many people have been shaken awake by this square, forced to confront themselves and their lives, the consequences of choices previously made and the impact of living a half-life in the shadows of possibility for so long. It has been a time of both trauma and ecstasy, challenge and liberation. Few have been left untouched. The initiation into the Aquarian Age has well and truly begun.

Like all initiations, however, it is just the beginning, not the whole story, and true strength is born of knowing how to respond after the intensity has passed and the next phase has begun. This is where we find ourselves now. The energetic themes of the past three years are lifting and changing, morphing into something altogether different. Uranus and Pluto are parting ways, releasing their grip each upon the other. This signals a parting within us too, for as above so below. Change comes in new guises now and we need to recognise it when it arrives at our door.

Uranus and Pluto are hugely powerful planetary heavyweights. Together they augur the birth of global cycles and massive societal change. When two planets square each other we are forced to take action or endure mounting intensity and frustration. Our environment constantly blocks and obstructs us, pens us into a corner, pushes us away from where we need to be until we take responsibility for our own lives and make the changes necessary for true progress and deep transformation. Pluto rules the shadow, those parts of ourselves we avoid and ignore, deny and project on to others. In its square with Uranus we have been faced with the consequences of doing so as our shadow has repeatedly risen up to meet us from the outside, confronting us with the consequences of trying to be someone we’re not, of refusing to claim our sovereignty, of living small and safe when we needed to break out and risk freedom. Uranus, the Great Awakener, creates radical disruption. It demands nothing but truth, no matter how shocking. It perceives a future in which there are no lies, no fear and no constriction. This prospect may seem dangerous in our world as it stands, but Uranus is not of this world and will not abandon its agenda to accommodate our earthbound aspirations.

This is the truth of working with cosmic forces: they demand of us largesse and greatness, not in terms of egoic acclaim and narcissistic absorption but of being big enough, wise enough, powerful enough to see beyond the limitations of the egoic mind to something beyond our imaginings. They demand that we live on the cliff-edge of life, the very boundary of possibility where we are forever challenged to go further. They demand profound integrity, searing honesty and a willingness to change in ways that may seem impossible from where we currently stand. When giants such as Uranus and Pluto square each other, despite the incredible intensity of their action, we are somehow more able to respond. We simply have no choice. We find what we need inside to do what they demand. Even, and especially, when we believe we won’t. For all the stress and pain of their action in our lives, the outcome is also beyond our wildest imaginings as we discover strength we never knew we had, options we never imagined could be ours and a life awaiting us which reanimates those parts within previously left to wither and die. It is tough, for sure, but the changes we undergo when we offer ourselves up to these processes of deep and enduring transformation make the offering worthwhile. Sacrifices made are repaid many-fold in the currency of wisdom, freedom and true presence in the midst of our mysterious life. What started out as tragedy and trauma becomes rebirth and new life. Against all the odds we arise from the flames to live another day.

This has been the story for so many in the past three years. This month that story begins to change as the Uranus/Pluto square dissolves. As these commanding planets part ways their impact is modified and we will meet them in different guises on the path ahead. No longer is it the case that in meeting one we meet the other. They’re no longer a team. Yes, Uranus still wants to throw everything up in the air and Pluto still reveals the darkest depths to shed the brightest light upon them. But they’re doing things in their own way now and that means we must adapt accordingly. Life won’t force us quite like it has been. It won’t so much be the case of ‘I can’t bear another minute I simply have to change no matter what’. We’re going to have to make some conscious, risky decisions born not of utter necessity (change or die!) but out of a deep inner knowing that if we are to play a full part in the evolution of this planet, we simply have to do what needs to be done, end of. It is both our birthright and obligation as custodians of this time and place.

From this point on it may become easier, gradually, to avoid change, to find excuses not to do it, to sink back into old habits with plenty of justifications for doing so. The choice is ours now, more so than before, simply because it won’t be so hard to stay stuck. It really is up to us. Pluto will still come along and stir up the darkness and Uranus will still be hitting us over the head screaming ‘WAKE UP BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE!!’, but they’ll somehow be easier to ignore. Our defences will be stronger, our denial and/or self-deception more effective. If we simply want an ‘easy life’ we’re more likely to get one now. But easy is not necessarily better. And after a few decisions to stay safe, step out of the ring, stay stuck rather than change, we may begin to look around and realise we have been left behind, companions on the path gone ahead, potential withering on the vine, possibilities once close now out of reach.

The urgency fades as the square between Uranus and Pluto does. Which doesn’t mean change is not needed, only that we have more choice in our role as its agents. We can step back from the cliff edge if we choose. Step out of the fray, batten down the inner hatches and stick our feet into the mud refusing to move again. ‘Those last three years were a heck of a ride, so I’ve done my bit now thank you! Over to someone else!!’. But you are that ‘someone else’ and so am I. So is everybody. We are all the someone else to whom is handed the baton now for the next lap of the race. If we discover the pressure is off and life offers a ‘get out’ clause when the going gets tough, that doesn’t mean the clause is the best option, only that the challenge is met now in the choices we make not in our ability to endure when change is inescapable. It is up to us to decide how we proceed from here, whether we settle for what we have or embrace our role as Evolutionary Agent for the long haul. We always have a choice and there will always be different forces and factors which influence it. Uranus and Pluto have driven us through the flames but now they take a different tack. Still as powerful, still as transformative, still as liberating, they come individually, inviting us to enter into their shadow dance and scary ride of freedom. But they are less insistent, less demanding. Their intensity will rise and fall as ever, but the imperative that felt like ‘change or die!!’ is lifting. We’re entering the next phase now, where we choose radical change because we know it is the only way to fulfil our evolutionary potential, not because we simply believe we have no choice. We have a choice, always. And never was it more vital than now that we make the wisest one.

Happy Days Are Here Again

The future is bright as Uranus and Pluto part ways

Maria DeSimoneMaria DeSimone on the topics of blogs, astrology, 2015

Without fail, the most common phrase I’ve heard since 2015 began is: “So far, this year stinks. When will it get better?”

Believe me; I hear ya.

It’s now safe for me to tell you that the rest of 2015 will not be as stressful as the onset of it. In fact, from here on out, life will slowly begin to calm down for many of us. The storms in our lives might not be completely gone, but they have certainly shifted to a lower intensity.

Dark days

This is major news because for many of us, since 2012, life has thrown one curve ball after the other, giving us little time to put on our boxing gloves … or at least duck for cover! Uranus, the planet of chaos, revolution, and sudden change, has been clashing with Pluto, the planet of intense elimination and regeneration, for the last three years. On March 16, 2015, we experienced the final exact hit between these two “planets behaving badly.” But then the Lunar Eclipse on April 4 woke up that sensitive degree where Uranus and Pluto met for their final brawl — 15 degrees of any Cardinal sign (Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn).

Friends, I can unequivocally tell you that I have felt this planetary boxing match in my chart in the same over-the-top tumultuous way that any of you with personal planets or chart angles in early to mid-degree Cardinal signs have. Our lives have been beat, shattered, decimated and then — just for good measure — we’ve been kicked while we were already down for the count.

Now, FINALLY, a new dawn is upon us. Future eclipses will not trigger Uranus and Pluto, because these guys are finally parting ways and moving on. Sure, they will be close to each other for a little while longer, but there’s a difference now: they’ve made a decision; they’re done with each other; they each said, “We fought our best fight. Game over.” And that means your life will calm down and the chaos will settle. The destruction now has a chance to be cleared away for something new and brighter to come into your life.

The shining light

On April 8 Jupiter, the planet of expansion, abundance, and faith, turned direct in magnanimous Leo after having been retrograde for several months. Sure, Jupiter is retrograde for half the year all the time, but the timing of his direct motion this year so close after that nasty Lunar Eclipse on April 4 was an extra-special blessing. It’s like the universe said: “Ok, I hear your cries. It’s time to bring in the Calvary.” What better way to relieve all the suffering than Jupiter moving direct in bright, sunny Leo?

Ah, yes my friends. You can be sure that this May we’ll enjoy plenty of flowers in the garden of life. Heck, after all those showers I think we’ve more than earned them.

Life might not be perfect, but the point is, the pressures will begin to lift enough for us to once again feel that we’re able to enjoy the journey. So to answer your question about when 2015 will get better, I’m thrilled to tell you that time has arrived.

Happy Days ARE here again.

Astrology of Today – April 16, 2015

Summary:

The possibility of misunderstandings is high today with Mercury in awkward angle to Saturn and in minor challenge with Chiron. As well, Pluto is stationing, and this shift tends to bring about some confusion, heaviness, and magnification of problems. Pluto’s retrograde from now until the last week of September is a good period for research and gaining new insight into our need for control, self-destructive tendencies, and our search for the truth by looking within. Outward pressures can ease.
•The Moon is in Pisces until 4:59 PM.
•The Moon is void until 4:59 PM (since yesterday at 5:36 PM).
•The Moon is in Aries from 4:59 PM forward (until Saturday, April 18th at 5:31 PM).
•The Moon is in its Waning Crescent phase (a New Moon will occur on the 18th).
•The Moon is waning.
•Pluto comes to a retrograde station (Pluto is retrograde from April 16 to September 25).

Astrology of Today – April 15, 2015

Summary:

Shortly into the day, a Venus-Saturn opposition perfects, and we may be facing up to areas of neglect or weakness, and possibly dealing with disappointments. While the rest of the day should have a somewhat heavy quality to it with Pluto nearing a station, we are not as likely to feel blocked or stifled, and in fact can have powerful intuition, ideas, and insights.
•The Moon is in Pisces all day (until Thursday, April 16th, at 4:59 PM).
•The Moon is void from 5:36 PM forward (until tomorrow at 4:59 PM).
•The Moon is in its Last Quarter phase / Waning Crescent phase from 9:00 AM forward.
•The Moon is waning.
•Mercury spends its first full day in Taurus (Mercury transits Taurus from April 14-30).
•Pluto is nearing a retrograde station (Pluto will turn retrograde tomorrow night).

Your Energetic Support Report ~ March 20 – April 20, 2015

Energetic Support Report ~ March 20 – April 20, 2015

a message from Kelly M. Beard

For more of Kelly’s insight, please visit her website http://www.karmictools.com/

In General ~ there are powerful additional energies & entities surrounding any personal activations you may be experiencing. This continues, with the first Pisces eclipse (of 6) on Equinox. Essentially, it is the ‘end of the end’ and the ‘beginning of the beginning’ ~ an unbelievable clean slate/rebirth. Closure will likely be a process but try to stay focused on NOW-Future (do not linger overlong, in the Past).

4/4 ~ LIBRA Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse ~ This is #4 of 6 in the Aries/Libra Eclipse Series. Individually, you may be feeling the need to create more balance within & more reciprocal relationships with others. Remember, eclipses happen twice a year, and always give energy for change, so anything you are truly ready to release (within or with others) is much easier during these times. Also, keep in mind that to release any imbalanced/toxic situations now, is to create space for your own rebirth with the Aries New Moon.

4/8 ~ Jupiter Direct in LEO ~ Jupiter spends 1yr in Leo (June 2014-July 2015) and is retro 4mo of the year, every year. This year’s focus is Leo, self- love, heart, courage, what you believe you are worth. It’s also time to trust your Heart more (have faith) and give your Inner Child some love & playtime. After the retro period of reviewing what you believe about these issues and how they manifest in your life and relationships, now, you can go forward and weave in more *fun* ~ lighten up, play, learn, explore.

4/16 ~ Pluto Retro in CAPRICORN ~ Pluto is the planet of death, rebirth and transformation. So when it Retrogrades be prepared to allow some part of you or your life to “die” … and be transformed anew. I call this ‘diving for treasure’! Often, you have to go through a release of some sort, this allows you to get past the usual roadblocks within and you always come back with something rare & valuable … and yours! Ready or not, it is time for you to move on to the next level. There is always some unknown aspects about change and moving into the future. The more you resist it, the harder it will be. It’s okay to mourn any true loss or death, but trust that whatever leaves your life at this time has likely been on it’s way out for a while whether you were consciously aware of it or not. If there is any deep, dark secret or part of your Self you have avoided or suppressed, prepare for it to come up and out to be dealt with once and for all. That’s the nature of Pluto, it takes away the very thing you think you cannot live without, only for you to find out that you CAN. It’s also an annual cleansing, so on one hand you should be familiar with the process, but on the other hand, it’s never easy when Pluto slows down, but it’s always worth it. Also good to consider is its lengthy stay in Capricorn (16yrs-2008-2024) so that is where the primary digging is going on, helping you clear out unstable foundations and get stronger internally along the way.

4/18 ~ ARIES New Moon ~ is an Annual Initiation, a time when you can *seed* your NEW Identity/Authentic Self ~ on a soul level (Moon). Mars, Aries’ ruler, reveals how you embody & express who you are and your preferred method of getting what you deeply desire out of life so, it would seem that getting what you want is directly related to who/what you think you are. You are different post-2012. Your frequency is higher, your consciousness has been expanded & you are learning how to walk & talk again. Time to set new goals.

LIBRA/ARIES ~ Nodes & Eclipses 2013-2016 ~ The last series we dealt with was 2004-2006 (more Aries-focused) and before that, 1995- 1997 (more Libra-focused & the cycle we are rebooting NOW). Do those years stand out for you? In regard to your Individuality & Relationships? Self vs Other? Independence & Partnership? This is a time when we are rebirthing our Identity on such a major level, that it will naturally rattle the Relationships we have (personal or professional). When YOU change, everyone around you has to adjust (and change) or go away. It’s not a bad thing, but really happens regularly within this Lunar Rhythm and HELPS us breathe new life into ourselves, as well as our relationships, partnerships & collaborations. Right now, rebooting the 19-year cycle with Libra North Node indicates that we are seeding the NEW ways of creating conscious equal partnership between Self/Other/Community/ World and all Life.

Jupiter in LEO ~ June 2014 – July 2015 ~ Rx: 12.8.2014 / Direct: 4.8.2015 This is a once- in-12 year opportunity to expand the Leo area of your life and *Edit Your Story* (in that department – House) by weaving in those components that express your true nature & innocent child’s heart within. In social & learning circles, it’s time to integrate more fun, imagination and inspired, creative self-expression. This is a time to give some energy to what you believe you are worth, how you define beauty & abundance and how you share your Light & radiate Love to others. You are supported to drop the OLD Story and start writing/telling a NEW Story that integrates more joy, optimism & faith.

Pluto’s Annual Retrograde ~ This is a pretty subtle process for most, but if you have Aries/Libra/Cancer/Capricorn in your chart, then you are feeling it; if you have any direct contact from Pluto to your chart, you are feeling it; if you are working on Pluto issues (death, sex, money, power & Underworld), then you are feeling it. Intensely. The thing to do is to work with it consciously, meaning CHOOSE something to release & allow to die, so that something new can be born through you. When it retrogrades, that is the time when you do more personal work, behind the scenes (internally) but often, you also find *Buried Treasure* – either something you buried yourself long ago, lost long ago or are only NOW ready to handle its power, so it is revealed to you.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Monday, March 30th

Your Horoscopes for Monday, March 30th

 by Rick Levine

General Horoscope

We are inspired to act on our feelings without concern for the consequences while there are six planets, including the Leo Moon, in action-packed fire signs. However, sensual Venus is in practical Taurus, reminding us of the simple pleasures of life. Romantic Venus forms an emotionally profound trine to passionate Pluto, challenging us to play for keeps. We’re tempted to think in absolute terms, but love is not an all-or-nothing proposition.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Although you have been on a rocket ship ride with several planets blasting through your impetuous sign, you may be growing weary as energetic Mars prepares to leave the land of Aries tomorrow. You are envisioning an escape route just in case you need it. You could be feeling skittish if you feel cornered, but overreacting won’t likely produce a positive result. Succumbing to your worries about the future only alerts others to your anxiety. For now, it’s smarter to relax and listen to your heart than dream about being somewhere else.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

Your unwavering determination is your greatest strength as you continue to express your love today, even in the face of an emotionally confusing situation. Lovely Venus is at her best while in your sign, even when attempting to harmonize with intense Pluto. However, this cosmic combo demands that you concentrate on the underlying feelings rather than being distracted by the surface noise. Aim deep and you won’t be led off track by unimportant issues or temporary fears. You are solid now as long as you remain on course and put honesty above all else.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

You are able to cleverly maintain your balance today while you are lured into unknown emotional territory. However, you may have to push past your own resistance and share your feelings, even if you’re uncertain about how someone else will react to your disclosure. Thankfully, the conversation is likely to go much better than you expect now as long as you don’t freeze once you start talking. But it’s a two-way street; you might learn something new if you are truly willing to listen with both an open mind and an open heart.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

You might sink into a deep and dark mood today as you attempt to reveal your secrets to a trusted ally. But your sense of urgency may be unfounded, provoking frustration or anger if your confidante isn’t willing to match the intensity of your emotions. Nothing is to be gained by trying to change anyone else; focus on your own inner process, instead. Ironically, taking full responsibility for your feelings allows your dissatisfaction to transform into an appreciation of the love in your life.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You could grow annoyed with people being so nice to you now because their support of your life plan just doesn’t feel authentic. You might even see their propitiating behavior as a sign of weakness. However, it isn’t wise to harden your position on an ill-conceived idea. Thankfully, you have an opportunity to show that you can be strong and yielding at the same time. Recognizing the wisdom of flexibility with respect to your desires empowers you to navigate through a very intense day with flying colors.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You think you can narrow your focus and limit your distractions in order to concentrate on what you need to do today. Unfortunately, this strategy is doomed from the start and grows more difficult to manage because your emotions are stirred, inspiring you to set your heart on some distant destination. It doesn’t matter if you’re incredibly smart; it’s just plain foolhardy to ignore your feelings. Having more facts at your disposal won’t help since you already know in your gut what you must do.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You may be feeling quite confident about your current plans now, but something is still gnawing away in the dark at the back of your mind. You might be limited in your options today, especially if you’re obsessing about a relationship from the past. But trying to escape from your personal history is futile; dig into it with passionate curiosity, instead. Once you can find your way around in the shadows of your subconscious, you’ll be better able to navigate in the light of reality. Trust your heart to lead you in the right direction.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Your unexpressed anger can cool into ice and morph into resentment, which is exponentially more difficult to process. Fortunately, vulnerable Venus trines your key planet Pluto today, exacerbating your emotions and preventing them from going quiet. Letting go and acting on your intuition is easy if you can relinquish your fears first. Following your instincts now is your best insurance against fostering negativity. A grateful mind is a powerful mind.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Your sense of self-worth and net worth are inextricably intertwined today, even if they usually seem like separate issues. Today’s passionate Venus-Pluto trine impacts your 2nd House of Resources, empowering you to ride an intense emotional wave of energy. You might want to consider cashing in on your current confidence and asking for a raise or a promotion. Naturally, the dynamics at work need to support your request, but in any case your contribution and your courage won’t go unnoticed.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You are still enjoying the sweet benefits of lovely Venus skipping through your 5th House of Spontaneity. Your involvement in a significant creative project or a new romance may be intensifying, and you’re tempted to go overboard as you try to give the performance of your life. This can be quite a memorable day as long as you don’t struggle to accomplish the impossible. It’s better to thoroughly explore one feeling today than to pursue several different options.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

It’s refreshing to feel so creative today and exciting to believe that things could get even better during the next few days. However, your happy-go-lucky attitude may be quite deceptive now. You might skillfully disarm someone’s aggression, yet you’re still ready for serious business in a moment’s notice. Use your keen ability to shift back and forth between the light-hearted and heavy-handed extremes, so you can make the most of every moment. Your charm and tenacity are an unbeatable combination.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

You may be afraid that the negativity of someone at work might grow into more of a problem during the days ahead. Although nipping a worrisome situation in the bud sounds like an intelligent plan, it’s not always the smartest strategy to suppress the natural expression of uncomfortable emotions like fear and anger. If you really want to preempt potential trouble, ask thoughtful questions and be an active listener as well. Sometimes, all a person needs is to be heard.

Today’s passionate Venus-Pluto trine impacts your 2nd House of Resources, empowering you to ride an intense emotional wave of energy. You might want to consider cashing in on your current confidence and asking for a raise or a promotion. Naturally, the dynamics at work need to support your request, but in any case your contribution and your courage won’t go unnoticed.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You are still enjoying the sweet benefits of lovely Venus skipping through your 5th House of Spontaneity. Your involvement in a significant creative project or a new romance may be intensifying, and you’re tempted to go overboard as you try to give the performance of your life. This can be quite a memorable day as long as you don’t struggle to accomplish the impossible. It’s better to thoroughly explore one feeling today than to pursue several different options.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

It’s refreshing to feel so creative today and exciting to believe that things could get even better during the next few days. However, your happy-go-lucky attitude may be quite deceptive now. You might skillfully disarm someone’s aggression, yet you’re still ready for serious business in a moment’s notice. Use your keen ability to shift back and forth between the light-hearted and heavy-handed extremes, so you can make the most of every moment. Your charm and tenacity are an unbeatable combination.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

You may be afraid that the negativity of someone at work might grow into more of a problem during the days ahead. Although nipping a worrisome situation in the bud sounds like an intelligent plan, it’s not always the smartest strategy to suppress the natural expression of uncomfortable emotions like fear and anger. If you really want to preempt potential trouble, ask thoughtful questions and be an active listener as well. Sometimes, all a person needs is to be heard.
