Pluto stations direct on October 2nd-3rd at 20 degrees of Capricorn after being retrograde since April 24, 2019.
Pluto is sometimes known as the Lord of the Underworld. It rules over death, rebirth, power, and the shadow side that lives within all things and within all of us.
Pluto also represents higher realms of consciousness and can help us to keep transforming and shifting ourselves to higher states of awareness.
Pluto is definitely a power planet, and whenever its energy is active in the sky, we tend to feel it at the depths of our soul. Pluto doesn’t work above the surface, it works below the surface, for in the dark, hidden depths that is where it can weave its magic and have its effect on the world.
Pluto goes retrograde each year, but each retrograde cycle allows this planet to impart more knowledge and more wisdom. If we think back to what was happening in our lives back in April 2019, we may notice patterns or themes relating to Pluto.
Perhaps at this time, we came face to face with something that had been hiding in murky waters. Perhaps we underwent a rebirth of sorts, or were challenged in how we were using our power with others. Perhaps something that was unconscious for so long suddenly became conscious.
Whatever themes, events, or patterns you can link back to this time will now come to the surface again in order for a shift to occur. As Pluto moves direct, it will be asking you if you have done the work and if you are ready to move on so more can be revealed.
Pluto has been in Capricorn since 2008 and will remain in this earth sign until 2023. Pluto moves slowly, but we are nearing the end of its time in this particular sign.
Before Pluto prepares to exit Capricorn however, the Lord of the Underworld is destined to meet with the Lord of Karma, otherwise known as Saturn.
Both these two Lords of astrology will align at 22 degrees of Capricorn in January 2020 and will be working their magic all through the year, but now, as Pluto stations direct, we are going to get a taste of what’s to come.
We are going to feel this potent Saturn-Pluto alignment building from this point forward and we are going to be able to start piecing together what shifts these two mega Lords may bring.
We are currently in Libra Season so there is already this theme of relationships very prevalent through the first part of October. But on the day that Pluto stations direct, Venus is going to be very active too.
Venus also rules over our relationships and with this hard angle it makes to Pluto as it moves direct, we may find that a key relationship comes into focus.
If this resonates, it may be helpful to remember to not get caught up in the actions of others but instead, to look at what is triggering you and what lessons or growth you can take away from the situation.
Under this energy, Pluto will be asking us to get real with ourselves. Pluto will ask us to claim back our power and remember who we are.
No more playing small, no more succumbing to fears and reacting from a place of trauma, Pluto wants us to rise like the phoenix and find our truth, our voice, and work from the heart.
True power comes when we own all of who we are. True power comes when we accept both our light and dark. It is only when we can acknowledge this that we can step into the fullness of our power.
We all have a shadow side, we all have a dark side that we like to tuck away in our deep, dark closets, but as Pluto stations direct we are going to be reminded that only when we accept our shadow qualities can we fully rise into our power.
We have to accept all of ourselves, we have to acknowledge all of ourselves, for when we peel back the layers and dive into what we find, it gives us the opportunity to keep growing and evolving.
Pluto stationing direct will make sure we pull our heads out of the sand and take a long hard look at what is calling to us. The phone has been ringing and we can no longer be afraid to take that call.
While we will feel Pluto’s energy strongly through the month of October, we are not really going to be able to understand the full effects and lessons until it leaves Capricorn for good in 2023.
We still have a way to go before Pluto is finished with us, but October 2nd-3rd is a milestone day and will be preparing us for the rest of the work Pluto has in store for us.
