Pluto Goes Direct

by | Oct 8, 2022

Pluto is the planet of power, control, transformation, surrender, obsession and secrets, death and rebirth and ultimately, healing.  Wherever Pluto is transiting in your chart, indicates where there are shifts and changes in some or all of the above.

What does going direct mean? It means after months of the “re” season, where we review, reassess, re-evaluate, and “re” anything else, we get an epiphany of clarity of how we need to move forward. After doing our due diligence and looking within, we can finally take action and start putting thoughts into action.

What is Capricorn? It’s the most evolved of the movable and earth signs, meaning there’s a unique ability for perseverance, pioneering, and practicality. It’s the natural 10th house of the zodiac and the sign of ambition (wherever Capricorn is where we work super hard). Capricorns are movers and shakers, rising to the top and bringing change as a result of new responsibilities and duties.

What is Uttarashada? Ruled by the Sun, this is the star that champions victory and defeat. It is about leadership, commitment, success and truthfulness.  There is a practical approach to starting anew, in which there is a strong propensity for doing the right thing (more than BEING right). It is symbolized by the elephant tusk, as a tusk (power) is used to destroy what stands in the elephant’s way. So defeat doesn’t come easily here, as there is a tenacious drive for winning at all costs.

Putting this all together…….Pluto has been retrograde in Capricorn in the nakshatra (star) of Uttarashada since April 29, in which there has been months of reframing what power means to you and revisiting power battles (as in large organizations, institutions and governments or your general work environment). There can be a changing of the guards with all this shuffling around, as victory will come to those who have been waiting.  And this is tied to the idea that right before Pluto goes direct, it is stationary,  meaning it’s super powerful, setting the stage for something new. Once it goes direct, all the thinking that went on the last couple of months finally moves forward and there’s no holding back. Get ready for something big!
