Pluto Retrograde: April 22, 2018 – Good News!

Pluto in Capricorn will turn retrograde on April 22nd, 2018 at 21 degrees. The planet will retrograde back to 18 degrees before turning direct on September 30th, 2018.

This is good situation as compared to Pluto retrograde periods over the last six years or so. This is because Uranus transited in hard aspect to Pluto from roughly 2012 until last year. When Pluto turns retrograde this year, Uranus will be long gone into Taurus. These planets are no separated by fifteen degrees or so. What a relief!

Retrograde Pluto in Capricorn will also catch support from Neptune in Pisces. I’m thinking this may ease the pain of transformation for anyone who cares to access the ethereal.  Are you familiar with Leonard Cohen’s, “Sisters Of Mercy”?


Compassion And Confiding In Strangers: “The Sisters Of Mercy, I Hope You Run Into Them Soon…”

I think this concept applies.

You may also keep in mind that Pluto is part of the summer retrogrades – Six Planets & Chiron Retrograde in 2018.

Considering the big picture, it makes sense a person fall into a slower pace over the next few months.  We’re moving ahead but a lot of the progress may be unseen.

Please note that “progress” is not necessarily positive.  Diseases progress, yes?  I mean to say, the landscape is always changing, even if you’re not looking.

  1. “Yes you who must leave everything that you can not control”. My whole life has been like this and to be honest, pushing 60 if it wasn’t I don’t know if I would feel the depth of that piece. Good for you, Elsa that you can feel what the cauliflower growers heartbreak. Life is so much richer that way.

  2. Thank you Elsa, this is a beautiful post, you know, this gift of knowing people can share their secret with you, I’ve got this too and always have known that it means that person likely will not want to see me again etc. (at least in the same way). Having the car filled with petrol, the same will happen, at the supermarket, or grabbing a coffee, sitting in the park with my dog, someone comes by and lets their secrets off their chest.

    I watched the clip here of the movie, oh Leonard Cohen his voice, the words, the deeper meaning here is gorgeous. Such a rich post.
    I can’t thank you enough for your depths of sharing here. It’s a daily read for me.

  3. I’m happy for the Pluto retrograde. It was getting overwhelming. Leonard Cohen was such a great song writer and poet. I’ve always had people confide their deepest feelings in me. I think they see my Neptune in Libra in the 1st house. I’m a sympathetic ear.

    Every time I fixed someone’s computer when I did tech support, I also got to listen to everything about their life. I always kept their secrets. That’s a Scorpio Moon/Mercury thing. I’m like a clam when it comes to things like that.

  4. Pluto has been conjunct my mother’s natal retrograde Jupiter in Capricorn. She has jup in the 2nd house. She had major hospital then care center experience then several thousand dollars of expense to have aides 24/7 as required by the powers that be where she lives. She will be glad for the retrograde but I am hoping the direct down the road doesn’t cost her like this one did.

    I am fairly certain Hurricane Katrina hit when Pluto was at station. I always take outer planet retrograde stations very seriously. Watching them always.

  5. My MC is at 15 degrees Libra, Sun is at 17 degrees Libra, and Pluto is at 21 degrees Libra. So, ya. So far, its been a time of transformation…of course. I feel like this last pass will just kind of clean up any lingering stuff that needs to go.
    Im not ungrateful but im kind of looking forward to the few years in my life when i wont be going through a Pluto transit. Just to maybe know what normalcy feels like? Im curious about it.

  6. So we will get a Uranus pluto break? It was a waxing square? So we are moving to the eventual opposition. I dunno. I just dunno.

  7. Pluto/Uranus conjunct at 15degrees natal Virgo 4th house! Capricorn 7th House with natal moon there at 9 degrees. Chiron and Saturn conjunction at 29 degrees Pisces in the 10th..Gemini 12th .. thank Goodness for Venus in Taurus !! My house situation has been in upheaval for years…even though I have a brand new home still upheaval with my yard,pool, landscaper ..will I ever have a peaceful home? 🙄
