Pluto stations retrograde at 25 degrees Capricorn the weekend of April 26. Her retrograde will last through October 4, 2020. Pluto isn't for sissies. He's one of the big players and hard hitters. The days surrounding the stations are the most potent and then the energy shifts and goes furtive and does the necessary work over the next few months to deal with Plutonian issues on a more internal level. The immediate kinds of feelings being experiencing during this end of April would be jealousy, betrayal, addiction, obsession, control, manipulation, ruthlessness, corruption, loss, death and uncontrollable sexual urges. That's because often on the stations the lower energy form often comes to surface. The flip positive side would be power, passion, financial and emotional support, trust, intimacy and rebirth. The more important thing to realize is that these few days bring an awareness of the Pluto energy and then the months of the retrograde become a more complex story of weaving the energy into the fabric of life in more evolutionary ways.
Pluto is the mafia, the Godfather, the person that says "I'm gonna make you an offer you can't refuse". Around the station this weekend you'll feel like there's murder in the air. If someone does you favor you might be beholden to them in the future, down the line when they come to collect. Pluto loves to entangle people in triangular relationships whether they be love, money or power. It's all about who has the control. Things will get under your skin and people, places, things and situations will come back to life in a vampiric way to either resuscitate an existing circumstance to consolidate power or examine it and bring a revelation that something is now dead or will do a slow death over the coming months. It's a rough weekend because Pluto forces an emotional deepening of very intense psychological problems and situations. For instance an important person may come back into your life only to tell you that the relationship is over or that that don't want to pursue the same sort of merger that you desire. Conversely the opposite could occur where's there's a deepening commitment of a close bond which adds intimacy and trust - the positive side of Pluto.
Pluto rules money and negotiations. If you owe money to someone, or they to you, the debt collector is coming with his hands out and he may want interest on his investment. This is the perfect time period to receive the government stimulus checks and any business loans. The next six months are perfect for renegotiating rents, mortgages, wills, trusts, and payments of any kind. I've literally heard of many deaths on the station, not just due to Corona, but those who have been suffering life's vicissitudes often choose to depart the world on the Pluto station as it's time to make that passage to the other world.
In the course of the next several months through early October, Pluto by house placement and planetary aspects says that it's time to take an accounting of things. Retrograde implies a psychological deepening and Pluto deals with psychological complexes and staring the boogey man or hidden, buried terror straight in the face. This Planet correlates to the 8 of cups, Judgement, 5 of wands and Death cards in the tarot deck as well as a few others. We all must take a journey into the dark, mysterious underworld because if we give up control and take the plunge we will come in contact with the process of liberation. The word transformation is often use with this planet, but that is after the process is dealt with. The retrograde implies we have to sink into the emotional process and deal with the shit first before it can be turned into fertilizer. This is a combination of the larval/pupal stages of the life of an insect such as a caterpillar that turns into a butterfly. This is what we are all heading into.
This will be a wonderful summer to come to terms with those deep personal emotional bonds that will grow stronger and stand the test of time and conversely those that must be destroyed and eliminated. Pluto is black and white. You will learn to trust fewer people and situations yet those that you do will become more powerful and important towards your security.
Capricorn rules structure, traditions, business, corporations, authority and the status quo. It's Pluto's job in the last degrees of this sign to destroy those parts of these things that no longer function in a prosperous way in order to make a new path and destiny. The baby should not be thrown out with the bathwater. We are in a period of mourning and loss. The retrograde acknowledges this and ultimately you have about six months to reclaim your power and access one of those nine lives you have left. It's a messy job but someone has to do it.
