Intuitive Astrology: Pluto Retrograde 2024

pluto retrograde 2024

Pluto is the planet of death and rebirth. Known as the Lord of the Underworld, Pluto’s retrograde hits us on a psychic level, working on the deeper layers of our being.

Beginning on May 2nd, 2024, the Lord of the Underworld will enter his own Underworld, emerging on October 11th, 2024, with deeper insights and wisdom.

Pluto Retrograde guides us to look over the transformations of the past, what has fallen away, what has risen, and what is still lingering in the shadows.

Pluto Retrograde for the Last Time in Capricorn

Pluto enters its retrograde journey in the sign of Aquarius, but on September 1st, Pluto will backtrack into Capricorn for the last time in our lifetime.

As this is the last time Pluto will be in Capricorn, this is our final opportunity to wrap up the Pluto in Capricorn cycle that we have been working with since 2008. Since this time, reflect on all the ways you have changed and transformed. Reflect on how you have been guided to step up and take responsibility for your life. And perhaps even look at who you are today, and the ways in which you have become more powerful.

On a global level, the entrance of Pluto into Capricorn coincided with the global financial crisis. Pluto in Capricorn can highlight big businesses and organizations in power, such as banks. We can expect more news around banks and big businesses as Pluto moves through Capricorn for its final time.

Pluto is also the planet of power so hopefully, we will see a beneficial shift of power when it comes to giant corporations and banks.

Pluto works on the deeper layers, and it’s really only when it’s finished its journey in a zodiac sign that we can truly understand the wisdom, lessons, and transformations it was destined to bring.

Pluto will exit Capricorn for good on November 19, 2024, giving us the total picture of the Pluto in Capricorn journey.

Navigating Pluto Retrograde

During a Pluto Retrograde, we feel guided to reflect on the cycles of death and rebirth in our own lives.

To work with this Pluto Retrograde, revisit the period from March 23, 2023- May 2nd, 2024. What transformations have unfolded since this time? How have we changed and evolved? How have we rebirthed ourselves?

Pluto is subtle in its approach, so sometimes it is hard to discern how it has been moving through our lives. Even posing these questions may not give us the clarity we need to understand the journey of this planet.

Here are a few ways to work with its energy-

How to Use the Energy of Pluto Retrograde

  • Assess your life since October 2023, or even as far back as January 2008. What changes have been made, and how do these changes need to be tweaked or adjusted?
  • Honor any desires for quiet, reflective contemplation
  • Get in touch with your shadow side. What needs to be shown the light?
  • Confront what you are afraid of. Know that it no longer has to hold power over you.
