Pluto -- death and resurrection

Pluto. If you know anything at all about the symbolism of this strange, erratic, controversial planet (which some scientists don't consider a planet at all, and other scientists consider part of a double planet set along with its own Moon, Charon, with whom it shares an atmosphere), you know it represents situations and experiences that deserve more than passing respect.

Astrologers accept that Pluto is a planet -- and that its influence is significant enough to be included in the interpretation and energy of a person's natal chart. Given what its energy can do ... and what it represents, it's folly for sure to argue with that conclusion.

The process of fundamental change

Pluto, named for the dark Roman god of the Underworld, Lord in the Land of the Dead, represents the awesome archetypal theme of destruction and resurrection, decay and renewal, death ... and rebirth.

The circumstances which inevitably accompany Pluto's influence in your life are both impressive and legendary. Although I insist that planets in astrology can't be viewed as causing the conditions with which they coincide, that, instead, they symbolize the existence and arrival of these conditions ... as a matter of natural course, I also admit it's easy to blur that line of thinking.

Retrograde Motion -- What's this all about? ---> Reversing course -- All the planets astrologers use to decode the spiritual language of the cosmos exhibit a phenomenon known as retrograde motion. Very simply, there are times from Earth's perspective when each of the planets seems to back up in its orbit, to actually reverse course for a time, before eventually going forward again. This is caused by the differing orbits and the differing speeds of the elements involved.

This Thing Called Retrograde Motion -- What it means in plain English ---> What is this thing called retrograde motion? Wherever it's found, in the sky or in a horoscope, retrograde energy means the matters represented by the retrograde planet become more subjective as people re-think, re-consider, re-evaluate and re-build. They process experience and information inwardly.

Working with the Metaphors of Retrograde Energy ---> When a planet goes into retrograde -- or comes out again, it doesn't just stop on a dime and start racing at its usual speed in the opposite direction. It seems (from the vantage point of Earth) to slow down gradually as it approaches the point of reversal -- the way you slow down in the car before coming to a stop -- or making a turn ... and certainly before making a U-Turn.

Mercury Retrograde -- Rethinking Your Present Direction ---> In the territory of the mind -- When Mercury is retrograde (Mercury Rx -- in shorthand), it is a time of rethinking, refocusing and re-communicating. In Astrology, Mercury represents your intellect; your mental focus; your mind and how you use its assets. It describes your ability to read, write, study, talk, absorb information and learn new things.

Saturn Retrograde -- Rebuilding Your Personal Foundations ---> Delays ... get worse -- Saturn is notorious for signifying delays, and because under stress it also symbolizes limitation, restriction, and loss, many followers of astrology consider it their least favorite planet. But I think it gets a bad rap and lots of blame it really doesn't deserve. Sure, Saturn makes you work hard for everything it offers.

Jupiter Retrograde -- Expanding Your Latest Creation ---> Jupiter's interests -- Jupiter represents your philosophical beliefs and ethical principles. It describes your ability to share authoritative knowledge ... the wisdom you've gained both through academic study and through the simple experience of living. These are the lessons you teach through the example of your own life by the ideas that guide your choices and the actions you take as a result.

Venus Retrograde -- Realigning Your Values and Assets ---> Reassessing things of value ... Venus represents your important relationships, your important values, and the way you handle the things you value, especially material resources like money and possessions you need to support yourself. When Venus is retrograde, these things get special attention from everyone. Retrograde energy shows it's time for humankind to back up and re-evaluate these vital concerns.

The Moon in Leo Sextile Jupiter in Libra on Sun 20th of Aug 2017 at 9:32 pm MDT
