Pluto Retrograde May 2, 2024 – Claiming your Power

Pluto Retrograde 2024

Pluto retrograde 2024 begins on May 2 at 2° Aquarius and ends on October 11 at 29° Capricorn.

Generally, Pluto retrograde is a time of reflection about power and control issues in your life. Pluto retrograde 2024 is especially helpful if you are being controlled or bullied. It allows you to assert yourself more powerfully and eliminate harmful influences.

Pluto Retrograde Meaning

Pluto represents power, control, transformation, evolution, death and rebirth. It destroys to renew and brings intense needs and drives to the surface. It is associated with personal mastery, big business, wealth, the underground, surgery, genetic engineering, detective work, espionage, global organizations, dictators, organized crime, destruction, mass murder, genocide, nuclear power and nuclear weapons.

Pluto retrograde promotes reflection on power and control issues in your life. If people have controlled or manipulated you, then now is the time to let them go. It is also time to let go if you have been too controlling of others or situations.

This is not a time for power-tripping but a time for elimination. Fated events and repeating themes will reinforce which of your controlling habits, compulsions, addictions, or prejudices must be eliminated. Destroying things that have control over you will increase your spiritual power and lead to personal mastery.

The exact moment that Pluto stations retrograde is the perfect time to meditate on Pluto themes in your life. At this time, Pluto’s energy more easily penetrates your subconscious.

It is possible to feel the tremendous power as Pluto mines for deeply buried trauma, memories and secrets that have been suppressed or forgotten, perhaps relating to previous incarnations. It is preferable to be outside to avoid steel roofs blocking the energies from the universe.

Mars sextile Pluto gives tremendous energy, willpower and courage. It helps you focus on a particular task and achieve your goals with intense focus and determination. It is ideal for challenging tasks that seemed too difficult to achieve earlier, for taking the lead, and for making a good impression on superiors.

You can project yourself more powerfully and stand up and fight if threatened or provoked. With keen instincts and adrenal surge, you can also project yourself forcefully in the spiritual or psychic realm.

  1. Pluto Navigation Rhyme,
    Moon transit Sagittarius decan three.

    this song cadence
    Early Morning Rain,
    by Gordon Lightfoot

    In the e’erie morning rain
    With a seiche before the land
    With a wobble in my eye
    My feet wake the sand

    A short way to harbour home
    In the e’erie morning rain
    I miss the anchor stone
    She points to basin drain


    The last two stanzas missing, refrain four lines X2

    • In the sixth stanza, try a Captain bellows or Captain whispers, depending on your audience.

      Lots of good drip here for a political loot, unfortunately AI on ‘warp’ speed, you know, you know.

  2. Bunch of bosses are meeting me at work on tuesday 30. Their only goal is to destroy and lower me for 30 minutes but Im not their h**. I will not respond to any of their accusations. I will simply say no comment if they ask. They are unrightfully accusing me of not doing something that I aint supposed to do in the first place anyway. Im victim of a lack of staff. They are using me for something that Im not supposed to do. They are just lazy to hire new people to do it. I hate them. What a surprise they now hired plenty new people but meeting is still maintained because even if I was and Im still right they want me to be the sacrificed lamb.

  3. Oh Poor Pedro, you are in a good place not to go down into their abyss. I think revenge is a surface kinduv Pluto response often used by my Venus Pluto associates. That is a waste of time and a trap. No comment response says it all. Like they are full of crap and you are not eating it.

  4. I guess I have revenge on the brain. This case I got with the contractor. They are into revenge. There are tradespeople that don’t want to assist because this contractor will go after them and make their life a living hell. Yegads. I protect them by not releasing their names. And have learned not to tell them who did the work when they come out to counsel on the problems. I guess I could put bags over their heads and skew their voices on a video testimony. That’s how nuts it is.

  5. Meeting went fine I mean I said no comment to everything they reproached me, they went mad but also nice in the same time. How weird. I guess sometimes some people got to get mad before getting nice…I’m now in the unknown for my professional future…I could be fired or maybe they won’t say more and let me work there…anyways…my mind is not there anymore I’m looking for a new job yet again…that would be my 4th job in less than 6 months….and I stayed 7 years in my previous position prior that…Just had job appointement 9:30 am but it wont go any further because the lady was not aware I have a month notice if I quit my current job….I’m on the road…I feel like a pilgrim or a hobo really…I don’t know if it will ever change…I just focus on my physical and mental health…playing tennis helps me relax…

  6. Pedro, Da nice with people like that just is not real. The ones I am dealing with made me feel schizophrenic till I understood the game they are playing. It all part of some kind of bait and switch thing they do. Breaking me down or trying to. Twisted monsters. Not human for sure.

  7. Which game is it ? Can’t you escape it Vic ? Seems hella toxic. I got fired today but I actually feel like I’m free again. Looking forward what’s next especially with new moon taurus …
