Get ready to transform at the deepest level! The astrology of May 2024 is exhilarating,  functioning as a portal to the other side as old themes continue to dissolve into the background and new paths emerge. 

Pluto - the Planet of Transformation - leads the way as it goes retrograde on May 2nd at 10:46 a.m. PT. If you’re a stargazer, you’ve probably heard a lot about Pluto this year due to this tiny but mighty celestial body making some rare moves in the sky. Earlier this year, Pluto entered Aquarius, initiating us into new storylines that will develop over the next twenty years! When looking back at the end of 2023, some of us might have experienced one big grand finale - but some of us are experiencing a waning type of energy. Either way, energetically speaking, there is still a little bit of work to do regarding this massive change that is taking place in our lives. 

As retrograde Pluto toggles between two signs (Capricorn and Aquarius) we are receiving the signal - and opportunity - to truly wrap up the past. This will be especially felt between September 1 and November 18, during the time Pluto visits Capricorn, the Zodiac sign it occupied from 2008 to 2023. 

While this timeline might seem too long and hard to pin down, trust us when we say that you want to keep an eye on what emerges for you now. Since Pluto is related to the concepts of “collective evolution” and “personal power,” - everyone, regardless of their sign - is experiencing big shifts now. Pluto also has strong links to psychology and the subconscious mind, asking us to examine ourselves at the deepest level. Ready to go deep? The following reflection ritual is for you: 

Transforming Pluto Ritual

Find a quiet place and light a black candle while setting the intention to be fully honest with yourself. Take a few deep breaths and once you are ready, ask yourself the following questions: 

  1. Looking back, what began in life around 2008? 
  2. What is the one big thing I mastered from then until now? 
  3. Do I still enjoy doing that - or, is that journey over for me? 
  4. What did I learn about myself during these fifteen years?
  5. What am I being inspired to pursue next? 

Once the end of this journey arrives on November 19, embracing Pluto will inspire you to fully come into your power: Read Your 2024 Power Horoscope Here!
