... pluto retrograde significance ...

David N. Scott
"....but I must confess a lack of knowledge as to precisely what the significance of Pluto Retrograde is...?"

thank you for your comment ...

significance ... none.

just as "summer" in and of itself has no significance. except that today, most people have now ascribed meanings like 'vacation', 'hot', 'corn on the cob', 'the time after final exams', or 'the months of june, july & august' with the word "summer" ...

to the extent 'pluto' has significance it is in the concepts and ideas it represents: transformation, renewal or rebirth, new perspectives. pluto represents the subtlest internal energy that only you and perhaps your intimate partners or therapists will ever realize in your life. it can bring the smallest shifts of personal perspective to make the largest shifts in how you experience and interact with the world around you.

a good illustration that is not applicable to most people, is perhaps one of say someone who is transsexual ... the day they 'realize' or shift their perceptions that "i am a woman in the body of a man" they can begin to empower that personal perception and, for some, begin to transform their physical appearance with the outside world to manifest their inner truth.

it is a shift in "how i see the world and my relationship in it" ... e.g., i used to wake up every day and go to work and do my life but i realized i was not happy at all or only rarely. TODAY, i wake up, i realize that i can choose to be happy ... and i make the choices no longer out of compromise to my happiness, but in support of my happiness. then decisions start manifesting the things in their life that bring personal happiness ... sometimes its eliminating people, a job, a cycle of relating ... i think you can get the picture.

to the exent 'retrograde' has significance it is the concept and idea of a reflection, reevaluation, correction ...

i always describe 'retrograde' periods for any of the planets as such ...

if we are to 'row, row, row our boats gently down the stream ..." and you come to a fork and you make a choice to go to the left and your rowing gently down the stream once again and ... well, maybe i should've made a right instead ... this is not what i was expecting ...

the retrograde period represents the 'back wash' that happens in a fork, that can easily carry you back against the stream's current, back to where the fork happened and you can have a 2nd look at the options, reality and context of your previous decision.

SOME times, you realize yes, I made the right decision, I just needed to clarify, understand or readjust something in my mind or boat to make the trip down the left side profitable, manageable, or pleasurable.

OTHER times, you say ... yeah, i do want to go down the right side after all, and you have the opportunity to change your mind.

KEY ABOUT RETROGRADES ... if you continue trying to row down the stream while in the backwash, many obstacles and interruptions and a very difficult time errupts. the gentle rowing is more like swimming up stream or fighting against the flow. if you feel that, examine it in terms of, in this case, pluto's intent to bring a whole new you to life.

... the significance to you ... i don't know, but, on some level you do ... for my clients, i look to the areas of life (as shown on an accurate astrological chart) that pluto is affecting and that helps give conscious clarity as to what the symbols personally mean.

p.s. ... loved the superman suit!!!!!!!

peace & harmony,

hey there, E.

thanks for taking the trouble to read my tale.
Not much of a message at the moment but I'm new to this affair.
Just had to thank you for your encouragement, spirit and making contact. So much is arid out there, finding people who get it is precious. Love your blogs, I'll keep watching and I'm inspired to create more of my own. Good work, oh and don't let your mum knock you off the soapbox :)
