Pluto in Retrograde pushes us to analyze our life What does it mean for each zodiac sign?

May has arrived, and with it the monthly horoscope, urging us to go out and touch the grass. However, May will be a very special month when it comes to celestial movements. Divided between Taurus and Gemini, it will confuse us, also due to Pluto Retrograde. Let's try to understand how this transit will influence the zodiac signs, what are the characteristics of this planet, and what to expect in the coming weeks, which will also be marked by a Full Moon in Scorpio, Venus in Taurus, and Mars in Aries. Help!

Pluto, the planet of inner shadows

Pluto takes its name from the god of the underworld. Its purpose is to urge us to confront our inner shadows, to face all our most intimate beliefs and convictions head-on, to question them. To traverse old wounds never healed and emerge from them renewed, more aware and stronger. It is also the planet of death and regeneration, which pushes away everything toxic. It's time to get to work to ride this momentum with awareness, burn everything that is not useful to us, and rise like a phoenix from the ashes. Easy, right?

What happens when Pluto is in Retrograde?

In 2024, this planet will be retrograde from May 2 to October 11, first in the sign of Aquarius and then in that of Capricorn. It is a very slow planet, which takes from 12 to 31 years to traverse each sign of the zodiac (and 248 years to move through all 12). This means that fully understanding how its retrogradation will influence our lives is difficult because it will do so subtly and almost imperceptibly. Emphasis on almost. When it moves through Aquarius (the planet of changes, long-term desires, technology, and progressive ideals), it will be time to give priority to inner work and to become aware of the dark sides of technology and social media.
