Pluto stationed retrograde yesterday April 27,2021 💀
Through October 6th, the planet of power and intensity starts backsliding. Under Pluto’s influence, we are called to examine themes like our psyche, our subconscious selves, shadow work and transformation. Pluto also loves to call out B.S. and implode anything that is inauthentic. Prepare to reflect, go deeper, release power struggles. Allow things that were once buried to come up to the surface.
Pluto is one of the most intense, powerful planets out there. (Also, no shade to NASA, but Pluto is still a planet to us astrologers. Sorry not sorry!) And don’t let size fool you: Pluto packs quite the punch.
He’s not called Lord of the Underworld for nothing.

(Don’t fear the retrograde though- it’s a very regular cycle that happens routinely every year for about half the year. Since Pluto is so far away from us we usually don’t feel these retrogrades as strongly as, say, a Mercury or Venus retrograde.)
This is a conducive time to explore Shadow Work.
As Pluto is the keeper of all the emotions we push down and holds the key to so much of our untapped talents and power. Aka things be popping up left and right!
If you're new to Shadow Work, stay tuned for a mini workshop we will be offering. For now, remember that your "Shadow Self" is not negative AT ALL.
SW is not about fixing or even healing this part of you- it's about acknowledgment , integration and radical self compassion.
No need to dive into the deep end of your subconscious to start (take small steps at first and if you know or suspect you have trauma, make sure to talk to a mental health professional).
A good place to start is awareness. By simply observing your emotions you can begin to embody the role of the "Sacred Witness." This mindfulness practice is what helps you shift from moving from a subconscious, self-sabotaging place to a more conscious, empowered version of you.
Aim over the next few months to notice and observe with curiosity and compassion: where and how do I give my power away? How can I aim to respond over react? What are the parts of me that need extra attention and love?
