Pluto Retrograde and Karma

Pluto's final dive into Capricorn (June 11 2023 to January 20 2024) is causing quite a stir in our lives as it ties up loose ends and makes final changes, often involving karma. The retrograde phase (June 11 to October 10th) is the most painful as Pluto revisits and force resolves old issues and problems, both on a personal and collective level.

My own situation is a case in point. Less than a day after Pluto regressed back into Capricorn, I took a bad fall down the stairs(Saturn/Capricorn) seriously injuring my arm, and about a month later I got a nasty spider bite(Mars/Saturn) that festered for a few weeks, and if that wasn't enough, I then got a bad case of poison ivy(also Saturn), all of which I'm still recovering from as of this writing. Talk about bad luck or karma! If you have heavy Capricorn placements like I have, you too may well get a whopping of some kind, depending on your past or karma of course

On a collective scale Pluto retrograding into Capricorn will seriously clean up all the shennanigans going on with our governments and institutions. This has already been going on since Pluto entered Capricorn in 2008, but it will be an all-out effort in this late phase of the transit. Yes, Pluto will dip back into Capricorn again in late 2024 for a final dusting before moving permanently into Aquarius.

Pluto will take a breather in the second phase of the transit when it goes direct (October 11, 2023 to January 20, 2024) but it still won't stop kicking some serious butt, preparing the way for its entry in Aquarius, where it will tackle different issues. Pluto in Capricorn uncovers or brings to light all of the muck and dross of our political institutions whereas in Aquarius it will uncover deep and shocking truths for all to see.

All planets in retrograde both natally or in transit deal with past or karmic issues, but with Pluto it goes to the extreme, leaving no rock unturned. 2023-24, when Pluto switches signs, will be a great turning point for humanity and for individuals as well, and you can be sure that Pluto will see to it.

People with Ascendant or personal planets in Capricorn will be most affected by this transit and I have found that the degree position does not always matter. The beginning and end of a sign are very similar as though there is only 1 to 15 degrees and then backwards from 15 to 1 degree. It's a very strange but common observance. Perhaps the way we see degrees today is not correct.

In my own case I have Capricorn placements in the early part of that sign, but the late Capricorn Pluto transit hit me like a ton of bricks, so you figure The other cardinal signs, Cancer, Aries and Libra will also be seriously impacted by Pluto in Capricorn. With Cancer it will be on a social or partnership level. With Aries it will impact the career or standing, and with Libra it will affect the home or family.

When Pluto settles intoi Aquarius the focus will change from the cardinal signs to the fixed signs. Aquarius is fixed air so the fixed signs of Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius, will feel it first, followed by the air signs, Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius. There are always 8 out of 12 signs notably affected in any transit. The remaining 4 signs are affected as well but in a minor or aversive way.

Pluto's final phase in Capricorn coincides with Pluto in the USA chart which is at 27 Capricorn (referred to as the Pluto return). This is a do or die transit where after almost 250 years, a nation is on the verge of dying and rebirthing, which is exactly what is happenning to the USA. By the time Pluto permanently leaves Capricorn, the United States of America will either be destroyed or reborn. Let's hope it's the latter.
