In March, Pluto, the planet associated with transformation and truth, entered the vibrant sign of Aquarius. Now, in May, it has begun its retrograde motion, marking a significant moment for each individual in experiencing this energy for the first time in their lifetime. This cosmic alignment holds tremendous power for manifesting new beginnings and embracing a deeper sense of authenticity.
Pluto, known for its ability to unveil and strip away illusions, offers a chance for personal rebirth. During this retrograde phase, it briefly transitions back into Capricorn for a six-month period, providing an opportunity to reflect on personal growth and identify where to direct one’s energy for meaningful change.
By tapping into the potent energy of Pluto, individuals can manifest their true desires and illuminate the authenticity within themselves and their lives. This process involves stepping out of the shadows of avoidance or self-sabotage and embracing the light of self-realization.
The Pluto retrograde period is a time to honor oneself and acknowledge the power to transmute any aspects of the shadow self into a radiant light that no longer needs to be suppressed. It is a transformative phase that welcomes individuals back to their truth, opening the door to abundance and new possibilities that await them.
