The planet of deep emotional cleansing is preparing for another round of retrograde teachings in the sign of Capricorn. Between now and September, we're being called to go deeper into our own darkness and shadow issues around power, authority and control. Where does greed, fear or power still lurk in our psyches in a way that's potentially destructive or self-sabotaging?

These are themes that began scratching their way to the surface since Pluto first entered Capricorn in 2008. Pluto works like the classic psychoanalytic metaphor of peeling an onion: layer-by-layer in circuitous fashion until we reach the deep core of the issue. It takes time and repetitive emotional experience to deeply excavate an issue in our psyche. We often forget that deep change is certainly no overnight fix.

There is also the potential to scapegoat others and project our darkness and unresolved psychological baggage onto the perfect target. Look to where Capricorn falls in your chart to see where you’re working out some of your deepest demons.

This particular Pluto retrograde is especially potent for several reasons. For one, it falls on the day just preceding a colossal full Moon lunar eclipse. Secondly, it’s involved in the Grand Cardinal Cross energy of April 24, and setting off all kinds of revolutionary change. We're working to break ancient patterns of partnering, family traditions and our relationship to authority. The best way to work with this retrograde phase is to have the courage to turn inward and embrace your deepest demons of fear, guilt and shame.
