Just as we thought we had escaped unharmed, Pluto is rearing it’s lovely head and bringing forth a wave of unpredictable energy. You may have noticed that retrogrades give us time to reflect and reassess, and the universe is telling us there is more work to be done. 

“Unlike Mercury retrograde’s effects (which manifest as external forces), Pluto retrograde affects us on a subconscious level,” explains Narayana Montúfar, managing editor of horoscopes for

“Each year, when Pluto retrogrades, we are given an opportunity to dive beneath the surface to encounter — and deal — with our darkest psychic material. We are not being asked, but pushed to search and destroy whatever is blocking our personal growth.”

For many of us, this means that we, or those closest to us may be facing an important decision regarding a major aspect in their life. And the choice that is made will change everything immensely. 

If it isn’t you personally that is dealing with a situation, take a moment to reflect on your own life anyways, and make it a point to do something meaningful. 

You will have ample time to do this, as it won’t end until October 3rd. For some this time will be difficult, because it will require slowing down, bringing your needs to the surface and finally letting go of the toxic influences in your life. And this can be difficult for many, because change isn’t easy, but it is necessary.

And with Saturn in conjunct to Pluto, you are going got need to be patient, and use whatever resources you have to handle the hard work ahead. 

But none of this is bad- actually, the work being thrown at you is a good thing, furthermore, it can help you to catch up on some things, and possible even get blessed with some new job opportunities! Meditate and focus on your life, decide what you want and what you don’t want, and get to action!
