Pluto and Pluto Retrograde horoscopes

Updated: May 2

There is nothing subtle about Pluto. You either participate in your evolution in a conscious manner or Pluto drops bomb after bomb until you’re left with nothing but the clothes you’re wearing. Pluto is that intense.

The modern ruler of Scorpio, Pluto is the planet of the cycle of death and rebirth. But not literal death. Pluto is the planet of metaphorical death. In the Hindu pantheon of Gods like Vishnu, Ganesha, Kali etc Pluto is like Shiva the Destroyer. If you are a devotee, like I am of Lord Shiva, you will have a good idea of how Pluto works to remove and replace patterns of behaviour and thinking. Pluto’s energy detoxifies, exorcises, purges and obliterates.

At a mass level Pluto represents what Jung called the “collective unconscious” and on a personal level, Pluto represents our emotional depths and the destructive but also transformative powers of the Shadow. Pluto is a catalyst and Pluto-ruled people often serve as catalysts in the lives of others.

How can you tell if you have a strong Pluto signature in your birth chart?
