Pluto Retrograde 2014

PLUTO TURNS RETROGRADEAPRIL 14 through SEPTEMBER 23 2014 ✭

In the natal chart, Pluto tends to operate even more Plutonian when it is retrograde. It is far more intense, it possesses a higher degree of concentration and it, therefore, gives greater insights into the subconscious. Because of this intensity, the individual can see much more than normally possible and it is easy to become suspicious of the motives of others.

The powers of regeneration are far greater when retrograde. People with a natal retrograde Pluto have a tremendous ability to overcome major illnesses that might otherwise cause permanent disability. Remember, retrograde motion is always directed toward inner activity such as the psyche or psychological patterns that affect the physical body. Direct motion, on the other hand, is directed towards external circumstances.

Under any Pluto transit, we feel pressured to eliminate and release the old, outworn, outdated and obsolete in our lives. When Pluto is transiting retrograde, we are urged to let go of attitudes, thinking or communication patterns, security drives, rigid emotions; a time to undergo an internal form of house cleaning.

It is a good time to research into our own Souls in order to determine exactly what we do or do not need. Because Pluto retrograde imparts an intense power for investigation, we should use this time to assess what reoccurring patterns in our lives make us feel out of control, where and why do we continually give our power away, and under what circumstances do we react so defensively that we elicit attacks from others. Pluto retrograde marks a time wherein we should seek to gain greater control over our personal life; Pluto direct is better for gaining control over professional and financial areas.

My most frequent observation of Pluto retrograde is that many people do seek some form of regenerative activity. I have seen people undertake a series of internal cleansings, detoxifying diets, Eastern disciplines that put them in touch with the inner self and even intense psychological reforms.

CRITICAL DATES in 2014:

PLUTO-URANUS: April has a transiting Cross. In terms of world events, this is a difficult time and, especially for those with planets at 13-14 Cardinal. The square occurs again in December 2014-January 2015.

    Hi Lynn,

    I have retrograde pluto transiting my sun (conjunction) for the 2nd time (29.59 sag) in my 9th house, with natal pluto in the 6th and leo in the 5th (venus in scorpio, 7th if it’s of any use). I feel this transit affects mostly my close relationships, resulting usually in painful separations (and lots of arguments before them) or in thoughts of separating. I was wondering if the 3rd time would be any easier…?

    thanks for the article!

  2. Lynn Koiner Says:

    This is actually a very good question —
    First, I hope that my booklet on Beginning and Ending (by degree) planets will be ready this summer. Your Sun is an Ending Planet at 29 degrees. As Pluto corsses it, you are in the process of shutting the door to some aspect of your past, your identity, so that you can move forward in a new direction. Indeed, the last crossing can be uneventful if you have already made these changes. If not, if there is something else that you have outgrown, this too will end in November. When the Sun is an Ending Planet, you stay with something until there is nothing left to learn from the situation…then you shut the door.

  3. Lynn Koiner Says:

    First, Rebecca has Saturn at 29 degrees. This degree of Saturn has an innate distrust of authority and “the system,” not believing that either can be trusted or will take care of her through life. It is better fulfilled through being self-employed at some point in the life or, at least, having some type of autonomy in the work.

    The stellium in Scorpio has a lot of control issues, further encouraging a movement towards self-employment.

    Transpluto in Leo squares the Scorpio stellium (read article on Transpluto on this website) so that there is a strong reaction to criticism, feeling that others can never be pleased.

    Mars at 0 degrees does not always know how to regulate energies in relationships with others — getting started or taking action like a Bull in a China Shop. If Rebecca was born around November 9 1988, she has a Cardinal T-square with Neptune as the Apex. Bil Tierney wrote an excellent book that discusses this pattern, DYNAMICS OF ASPECT ANALYSIS. I would recommend that any astrologer read this book.

    Pluto in Capricorn will actually transit this T-Square for several years. This will be a time when Rebecca learns to empower herself in relationship with others.

    Pluto transits are very difficult indeed as one can feel overwhelmed and out of control. BUT, the good news is that much of the influence now involves Mars at O degrees so there is much adaption to a new situation involved here.

    Then, both Saturn in Virgo and Pluto in Capricorn will favorably aspect her chart…growing personal empowerment.

    Any planet in early degrees, such at Mars, has a very difficult time initially adjusting to new situations. Patience is required. Learn not to over-react to feeling criticized. Transpluto over-reacts when this is sensed and this can make life very difficult.

    I am going through a Pluto transit to a planet in 0 degrees. It is not easy. Personally, I have been helped by taking a Pluto Essence created by an astrologer near Annapolis MD.
    Adam Gainsburg at www.soulsign.com I find that this essence makes me feel empowred, that I can tackle anything, so the transit is easier. There is no “magic bullet” but I do find it helpful. Of course, being a lot older, Pluto transits become easier with age as I naturally have more control and personal power in my life. It was not easy when I was younger.

  4. Lynn Koiner Says:

    I missed your post, Buffy, but you have asked a good question. Do not be concerned with Pluto being retrograde. I would simply look at the transit itself, Pluto trine Jupiter. You do not give the degree – Beginning Planet or Ending Planet – and this is important.

    A Beginning Planet (0 degrees) describes are very new situation. An Ending Planet (29 degrees) would bring some matter to a conclusion. Ending Jupiter is excellent for “comparatives.” They see the common thread of truth in all belief systems and philosophies. They have an interest in synchronicities.

    Generally, Pluto trine Jupiter in the Water Houses can heal some family situation by psychologically understanding it.

    Pluto-Jupiter very generally often describes a situation wherein you feel that you are doing something to improve the quality of life for others…it can be humanitarian in some way. Young people often teach reading to others who cannot read, as an example.

  5. Lynn Koiner Says:
    I have written a Manual on Beginning and Ending Planets and it is available on this website as a PDF File.
  6. Lynn Koiner Says:

    I do not use separating transits. It just gets too confusing — what is a client feeling? Last year’s transits, this year’s transits and next year’s transits all at the same time?!

    BUT, because Pluto is at the end of a sign, this is called the “End of One’s Rope” degrees — people in general feel the intensity of Pluto REGARDLESS of where their natal planets are located. This may be the answer to your question.

    On my website, I have a little information on the galactic center in an article on Septiles. A brief section is….

    RESEARCH: In the “Journal for Scientific Exploration,” the Spottiswoode research conducted with former government “remote viewers” revealed that there was a 2-hour window of dramatically increased psychic ability when the earth blocked the noise coming from the Galactic Center. To determine this on one’s own, use a Star Finder Dial or visually observe when Orion’s Belt is directly overhead. Since the transiting Septiles facilitate psychic ability, blocking the Galactic Center will give you an extra edge of receptivity.

    Frequently, there will be septiles between the Sun-Mercury-Venus and Neptune-Pluto. These will not be so strong due to the frequency in which they occur. As Septiles, they are always useful for multi-dimensional connections and psychic support. Septiles involving the outer planets occur less frequently and, therefore, are more significant as they last for longer periods.

    There are not many strong Septile Clusters through December 2006. The last strong cluster occurred on November 30 2005. When an outer planet is involved, it has a stronger influence but it needs Septile Clusters from the inner planets to be truly powerful. The last such important clustering occurred on March 21-22 2002.

    I am not going to analyze each aspect as I have done in the past but rather give the series of Septile Clusters.
    In 2007, there are many dates in which Septiles occur. I have only listed the strongest clusters for this e-mail post. I am personally trying to work with Septile dates for manifesting ghosts. Since Blaschke feels that this is a “Suspension” aspect, it can lift the veil between the seen and the unseen.

    Your personal observations would be appreciated. With psychic work, look for the time when Orion is overhead. Noise from the Galactic Center will be blocked and reception will be improved.

  7. Lynn Koiner Says:

    RAF – With so much Scorpio/Pluto, you lack the objectivity and awareness of how other people feel about your feelings.
    You can attract the (objective) AIR sign element into your chart but talking with other people about your feelings and truly listening to what they say. Keeping everything inside is terrible for Scorpio/Pluto…it only becomes more intense and less controllable, like a beach ball being pushed below the surface of the water. You can only contain it for so long. You need to talk with friends about these feelings and gain some objectivity.

  8. Lynn Koiner Says:
    FEARS & THE 12th HOUSE:

    Planets transiting or progressing through the 12th House can do this, especially Saturn. The 12th House is a time for letting go of the old self and this can create fears of the unknown. The minor afflictions from a transiting Pluto might do this as well.
    Death thoughts often occur when a part of ourselves is dying but this is usually a good thing…we just do not know it yet because the new has not happened.

  9. Lynn Koiner Says:
    THE 12th HOUSE: I know this from experience about the 12th House. When Saturn and the progressed Moon entered this House, I was fearful and anxious without knowing why. The Progressed Mercury square natal Mercury caused anxiety over an error in judgment. Uranus aspecting the 12th can cause sleeplessness.

    Adi – Progressed Venus, ruling the 12th cusp, crossing Neptune in the 8th (a psychically sensitive House) and Pluto crossing Mercury while 150 Mars in the 12th. In early degrees, there can be anxiety over an impending change, about which you may not be aware of at this time.

  10. Marianne Says:

    Pluto was recently conjunct my Ascendant. Now, due to it’s retrograde motion, it will be crossing my ascendant again, and eventually again.
    This is a very dynamic time in my life. In many ways I feel I am not the same person I was just a year ago- for instance my style of dress and the way I carry myself has changed incredibly (I am much more feminine than I have ever been before). A lot of what I have read about Pluto conjunct asc. is not necessarily positive yet if the changes in my life recently are any indication of what’s to come I am pretty excited.
    What do you think?

  11. Lynn Koiner Says:

    It does not matter when Pluto is R or not, crossing the ASC can be very empowering for most people. After years of being in the 12th House, a time to observe people in power, abuses in power and simply observing, Pluto on the ASC empowers you.

    Of course, there may be a few people who are afraid to be empowered and then they could have problems but, by and large, this is a very good aspect and it lasts for a very long time. See where Pluto is natally to find from where many of the changes are coming.

  12. Lynn Koiner Says:

    Pluto itself is the most important consideration when it crosses the ASC – empowering and transformative. The House position is a subsidiary influence, then the sign.

    Pluto will be in your 1st House for a long time and it should bring 9th House type changes – education, travel, learning and consciousness expanding experiences, meeting and communication with people from distant places, a spiritual transformation and a transformation in how you view the world, political views as well.
    Pluto in Libra does have an influence, as you say, changing socially and seeking answers from within, not through others. So, this colors Pluto issues as well.

  13. Lynn Koiner Says:

    I am writing a series of manuals that will eventually be sold on this website. This is part of the 12th House Pluto article….

    12th HOUSE PLUTO:

    With Pluto in the 12th House, a parent did not want you to be more powerful than they were – and often that parent had an internal sense of powerlessness. The individual learned to suppress their power and to give in to the power of that parent.

    Being powerful was deemed intolerable by a parent so that the individual learned not to come on strong. If the person did not have the potential to be very powerful, it would not need to be repressed.

    The parental message was: Do not be more powerful than I am. This made the parent controlling and overwhelming. The 12th House Pluto has issues or fears about being powerless or out of control.

    NOTE: I have Pluto in the 12th. I believe that my mother was my daughter in the last lifetime. She did not want me to assume my former power in our current relationship…because I do not think she wanted me to abandon her again.

    There is a fear of being vulnerable, especially to the power of others or more powerful people.

    There are difficulties dealing with powerful or controlling people.

    They are sensitive to manipulative people. This gives them great internal insight into the motives of others. Since “survival” within the family and dealing with the power parent was dependent upon picking up subtle cues from that parent, the individual cultivates great psychological insights.
    Profiling becomes natural, especially for those issues from the childhood.

    NOTE: I only have specific insights, not complete insight. People who “lie like a Gemini” I just never get it. My mother never told the truth and you would think that I would be more perceptive…but I believe what others say….most of the time. It seems that when it comes to astrology and New Age activities I always know when someone is phoney. As a child, I knew how adults would react. I knew how to behave so that I would not get in trouble. Situation at the pool example. As an adult, possibly because my life is good, I have lost the need to be so aware of the motives of others. See the next statements.

    The individual learned to be manipulative very early because they were dealing with manipulative people. They are very aware of the strengths and weaknesses of others.

    ✭ I personally only find that this works when someone could hurt me or the people whom I care about. I can see through people who are fakes, who use people through a spirituality “con,” and spirituality cons. This only works when people I care about are threatened in some way.

    EXAMPLES:
    • My parents would force or trick her into doing things, never straightforward. This is part of being raised by manipulative people
    • My own mother would tell me that we were going to get ice cream and then take me to the doctor for a shot (although we did get ice cream afterwards). I later healed the relationship with the doctor whom I came to fear.
    • As a child, I could not make choices for myself. With Mercury-Pluto, my mother would put words into my mouth and make decisions for me (and my father). This affected my ability to make decisions and choices for myself.
    • I fear situations in which I am powerless, controlled and manipulated. I fear being sued in court – for me, the ultimate powerlessness.
    • Transits from Pluto can be difficult – am I powerless or do I have control. When Pluto squared my Sun-Juno, a Juno individual made my life hell. Since I had never scored a victory, I could not score a victory with this person who had been like a mother to me.
    • Since I was not taught how to be in control of my life, I felt empowered by astrology. This was my substitute parent!

    This is an excellent position for a therapist, healer, counselor or profiler. They possess insightful skills into the psychological behavior of other people. Being able to assess the strengths and weaknesses of others can be helpful in matters of business.
    They are excellent researchers, in all areas. Because they know how to keep some things hidden, they can succeed in undercover work or covert activities.

    Their insights are so keen and perceptive that they can range from insightful to paranoid!

  14. Lynn Koiner Says:
    INCONJUNCTS: Anxiety can be triggered by inconjuncts – Pluto is crossing your Mercury 150 to Mars in the 12th. I discussed the 12th House earlier. The specific planets that you have in your 8th House are very sensitive to anything beyond your control and all unseen realities. Your progressed Venus is crossing your progressed Neptune at this time.

  15. Lynn Koiner Says:
    LAWSUITS:

    First, before initiating a lawsuit, I would ask a horary question – calculating a chart for the time and place one asks a question. The 1st House is the Asker – the 7th House is the other person. Whichever is elevated higher usually wins but the Moon’s last aspect while in the sign will indicate the outcome.
    I can recommend horary astrologers to anyone who asks.

    Spending your life getting even with others is no life at all. When you try to destroy others, you end up destroying yourself.
    There must be something within yourself that attracts these people. This is what you need to change.
    Pluto squaring your 12th House Libra planets offers an opportunity to transform your attitudes and your life.

  16. Lynn Koiner Says:
    PLUTO TRANSITS & PLUTO CROSSING 4th CUSP: Pluto afflicting transits can be difficult for the “personal” planets. Pluto applies pressure onto the Solar Plexus, forcing emotions to surface, not always pleasant but these emotions need to be evicted so they do not affect our health down the road.

    To give “hope” for others, aspects (even difficult ones) to planets in early degrees can portend a new situation and this is very stressful. With such an affliction, I began teaching online with IAA and having to learn the new technology was uber-stressful —- the best thing that ever happened to me.

    MANOJ: I cannot say exactly what will happen in your chart but, as I said to JT, many new circumstances coming into your life in 2009-10 can be very stressful until you adapt and learn the new. Pluto needs a mentor.

    In 1997, Pluto crossed my IC and it was a transformational time in my life. My aunt’s husband died and she decided to take me under her wing and develop a closer relationship with a neice she little knew. I became her favorite neice and she was very good to me until she passed a couple of years ago.

    Pluto going through the 4th transformed my entire life — there were passings in my life, my neighborhood totally changed because of re-development and my life totally changed. Nothing occurred overnight but as a long-term transformation that occurred from 1997 until recently as Pluto takes many years to transit a House and, during that time, your life life and immediate environment are overhauled completely.
    A friend and I both noticed that a HEALING occurred in our family relationships with Pluto transiting there. I have definitely seen Pluto heal relationships.

  17. Lynn Koiner Says:
    PLUTO CROSSING IC: Pluto crossing the IC is not always difficult but it marks a long cycle (could e as much as 17 years) within major changes occur in your home, workplace and neighborhood.

    Under favorable aspects, it can bring a healing of family relationships. Read this natal aspect on Natal Retrogrades on this website.

    When Pluto entered my 4th, an uncle died (not close) and it set the stage to become much closer to my aunt, his wife. She became a mother figure to me, we did so many things together, she gave me money for my trips to Europe and, later with Pluto still in the 4th, she left me an inheritance.

    During this long transit, which recently ended, my mother died. This shifted my relationship with my dad and we became closer than ever.

    My work environment changed from giving readings in my home, only in-person, to telephone consultations and Skype and online teaching, rarely at home.

    My neighborhood has changed dramatically due to tearing down the old and building the new. My taxes went from $4800 to $17,000 per year. But, I have a Whole Foods and Borders 3 blocks from my house.

    There have been many other transformations with my neighborhood that are wonderful but too many to enumerate.

    Jupiter changing directions is a powerful event. I like Jupiter R and you will always be this (read article). But, when Jupiter turns direct, your popularity can increase because you know how to play the acceptable role.
    This can bring some prosperity with property, healing of a relationship and the passing of others.

  18. Lynn Koiner Says:
    MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS: I have researched MS for many years. Psychologically, there is an internal rebellion against control issues. The individual must let go of control or feeling the need to take control of the lives of others, specifically the family.

    Those who have caught the disease in time tend to do well with weight lifting and adhering to the Cayce Diet (just google this) and avoiding food combinations.

    Pluto transiting the 7th House brings transformations through the interaction with others. Others profoundly alter your life in some way.

  19. Lady Diane Randall Says:

    CAT: It sounds like MS to me, I have it and the weakness and fatigue are debilitating. Your post is probably a few years old and not sure you’re reading now (7/1/2012), but MS for some of us – only about 5-10% of MS patients have Primary Progressive MS – is like this: strange debilitating events as in seizures, eye issues, etc., exhaustion, that come and go, AND for me – when the MS took over about 7 yrs ago – abnormal heartbeat from any physical exertion and/or extreme anxiety. I’ve found anxiety gets completely out of control in situations of extreme vertigo (also MS symptom), strobe lights or even tv/movie flashing, loud noises (ie commotion). There was a fire alarm at my bldg and I could not control my severe reaction, although it subsided after a Valium (a muscle relaxer/tranquilizer that helps me even in small doses). CAT, have you had an MRI of your neck or a spinal tap done? Another MRI of your head may be in order, it can take time to show up. Blessings to you!

    LYNN, Regarding your comments on MS, I have been a “passive agressive” control person. I grew up in super-controlling atmosphere, repressed myself so much that the internal combustion blew out some of my wiring. Having a Grand Trine of Fire with Pluto in Leo in 7th, guess where that stuff shows up – long term relationships. Sun in 0.6 Aries in 1st, conj. Venus in end Pisces & Mercury in Aries, all in 1st. Thank god/dess for the Venus in Pisces, I’m a poet and writer – the trine is with Saturn in Sag mid-heaven. Also have Mars in Gemini end 3rd. My father’s a Leo and after many many relationships, I am finally with someone (my 3rd Gemini!) who is like him in many ways and my dad is a true Leo gem! But not great at communication, you have to find the key and then it goes smoothly. PS this new man – my whole life has changed and he entered and we are going through a lot of stuff, transforming together, and my perspective has changed dramatically regarding men – I recognize my own issues (especially fear of being controlled!) and don’t just argue, jump and run, which is hard to do now with the MS anyway!

    PS LYNN: I have an interesting theory also on the MS – I began my psychic studies right at the age the MS 1st appeared, albeit with stretches of feeling ok until 40+ years later. I think the extra neural activity creates an empathic ability (I saw this on NGeo channel) and the more the myelin breakages, the more psychic I became, but that leads to less ability to be detached. My main tool is tarot or other psychometry, especially touch… Now I live as peacefully as possible and do short readings for a few people here and there. Have written and plan to do more once I finish helping my Scorpio daughter get to Japan to teach! She leaves 27 days from now and is 34! Anyway, thank you… I love reading this and used to know a lot more about astrology, so thanks!

  20. Lynn Koiner Says:

    12th HOUSE (8-2012): When Pluto transits the 12th House, it represents a long cycle of observing power in others. It is a time of observation for some future change. When Pluto crosses the Ascendant, you will take steps to empowerment yourself in some way.

    A friend tolerated a marriage to a Loser (slept with other women, called himself an entrepreneur but he only made $2000 a year) while Pluto transited her 12th. When Pluto crossed her Ascendant, you put her foot down and told him to stay with his girlfriend because she was no longer supporting him.
    NOTE: You should have posted this under Pluto Transits. Your post is not about Pluto R. I only answer questions as they pertain to the article. It’s OK though.

  21. Lynn Koiner Says:

    JERRY (9-2012): STATIONARY POSITIONS – this is not always easy to answer, since different astrologers use different orbs. I only notice this in the chart when Solar Fire puts an S after the degree-minute-sign for the planet.

    Personally, I use the time when the planet is in the same degree and minute of the Station point. For example, looking at my Michelson ephemeris, Jupiter is Station from October 2 until the 5th.

    Saturn and Uranus move more slowly so their Station period is sometimes longer. Uranus will be station for a short period – December 12 thru 15.

    Saturn is station from February 15-22 — a short period because it occurs in late seconds.

    A natal Station planet will be the most powerful in the chart. This can affect the career and even the health (if the planet is not used properly). This is also true of Singletons in the natal chart.

    Good question…Lynn

  22. Sareena Says:

    Dear Lynn,
    I am dealing with Pluto Retrograde. I have PLuto in my 1st house in Virgo. It is conjunct with Venus. Since the retrograde Aprl 12, I have not been able to make money as easily as I usually am. I have had cancellations and lower sales. What do you think? How should I handle this?

  23. Lynn Koiner Says:

    SAREENA (4-2013): Pluto turning Retrograde would not be single factor contributing to the business slow-down. It turns Retrograde every year around the same time.

    Your question would require a long look at all of the aspects in your chart at this time. And, to be honest, I am not good as job and financial predictions.

    I remember years ago a woman who wanted to know when she would get a job. She had some very good upcoming aspects but they produced nothing for her. I could not understand why until she sent me her 25 page resume (it should be no more than 1 1/2 pages) that was very New Agey.
    She refused to change it.

    You should look for favorable Pluto transits to bring opportunities for improvement. Uranus and Neptune, as well as the “hard” aspects, indicate that you need to change what you are doing or HOW you are conducting your business.

  24. burka Says:

    I had a really strange dream last night.
    I dreamt about Pluto (planet) destroying earth. I know it sounds really childish but it was a disturbing experience for me..Somehow Pluto seemed to be alive in my dream and becoming more and more brighter and then started to shoot meteors at my house and my familiy. I tried to save my family.. I didn’t feel fear it was something else.. It felt like a horror movie experience. I don’t know how to explain it but it was like feeling really desperate with not being able to stop it. This whole thing wouldn’t be so interesting to me if I haven’t been going through pluto transit in 12th house. (well, I don’t know if it has to do with it but it felt kind of interesting to me…)
    Anyway I wanted to ask what sort of transformation it brings with it in 12th house. my natal pluto in scorpio is in 9th house trine 6th house cancer moon. PLuto R is now right between my natal neptune and juno in 12th in capricorn, and is opposite to my natal cancer lilith in 6th..it is also square my natal aries mars in 2nd house..

  25. Lynn Koiner Says:

    BURKA (5-2013: When Pluto is in the 12th — and it will be there for many, many years — the transformations are mostly psychological. One often makes observations of people in power abusing power. You need to learn this lesson because, when Pluto crosses the ASC, it may put you in a power position. Do not make the same mistakes as others.

    With the 12th House, there can be research, covert activities and empowerment can also come from distant places where people do not know you — therefore, you an transform without the preconception of who you have been.

  26. burka Says:

    First of all thank you very much for your response.

    I just wanted to describe experience I’ve had since my last message here.
    The day after I wrote the last message, I noticed my dog is ill. He’s been vomiting the whole day, actually whole weekend so I went to vet with him on moday. He was treated with a lot of pills but he still couldn’t eat or drink anything. He was just vomiting everything. I was really concerned because he didn’t eat anything and went to vet on wednesday again for a transfusion. Then the vet noticed something else has attacked my dog and he couldn’t be saved any more. He advised me to put him to sleep. I was really devasteted, because I couldn’t help him in any way. Actually the whole family was. We were all so connected to this dog and he was like a part of a family. Well, I’m writting this just to ask you could it have anything to do with this pluto transit over my 12th house? I’ve been looking through my 5th also (since it has to do with pets, didn’t find anything disturbing there; I have a jupiter transiting 5th right now, in an opposition to my natal saturn in 11th – could this be the reason?) but I’m getting off topic with this now. I’m just trying to find some conecction to my transits at a time; I was really devastated for some time with not being able to help my dog, and also feeling like I described I felt in a dream I had few days before all of this happend with my dog.

    It was just a strange coincidence?

  27. Jonathan Says:

    Salutations Miss K.

    What does it mean for a Scorpio when there is a new moon before his or her borndate? Example with this year October 23rd.

  28. Lynn Koiner Says:

    JONATHAN (3-2014): Any time there is a New or Full Moon within a day of one’s birthday then there will be a major change in the life within the year. Look to the natal House position for the nature of the change.

    In the 1970s, a little girl living next door had a NM on her 3rd House Sun. She changed schools, leaving public schools for a Catholic School.

  29. Micel Says:

    My pluto is retrograde conjunct my venus right now. What does this mean?

  30. Lynn Koiner Says:

    MICEL (4-2014): It is impossible for me to give a specific prediction on an isolated transit.

    As astrologer looks at other transits occurring at the time, the House position of your Venus and the House the Venus rules. And, I like to look at the natal position of the aspecting planet, in your case, Pluto. This indicates from which the changes are coming.

    My dad has Venus in Capricorn in the 4th House and, when Pluto crossed Venus, he was the victim of a robbery of his living area. Over $12,000 in cash and his coin collection were stolen.

    Considering that there is a Cross pattern occurring now, this would be a difficult transit for all.

    You should let us know what happens…Lynn

  31. Katherine Says:

    Hi Lynn. Love your work. I have my ascendant at 12.54 degrees of cancer, where Jupiter and Pluto opp and my 5th house is right on the mars opp Uranus! I have a Taurus sun at 4 degrees.My health has been bad. Tiredness and lack of sleep lead to bells palsy in March. Since the grand cross, I am feeling major stress from the work place, and the actions of someone at work, has left me feeling demoralized and attacked, I’m anxious all the time and can’t stop crying. Feel like I suddenly have enemies! I’m a great believer that all works out as it should in the end, and it’s pushing me to look into a new direction of work. I literally feel drained and at the end of my tether. Realise that Pluto is going to go back over my des again at the end of year! Will the same happen again?! Will things be resolved and should I be changing direction of work? Kind regards

    Thank you Lynn, so much for this article. I really have to tread so carefully right now with this transit and wasnt sure how to proceed.

    I am OH so luck to have this retrograde dance a square with my natal Pluto at 10degrees, 53min Libra, 10th house, OVER and OVER… it is like a horrible hamster wheel. The natal pluto is in the middle of a stellium of planets (merc, venus, mars, and sun) that begin with a sun conjunct MC.

    This transit is killing me, and I really just want to learn how to survive it. This article helped, when to deal with the outer annihilation of life (direct) and when to deal with the inner (Retrog.)

    Theres been a horrible separation, a filing of divorce on the day of the damnable Grand Cross, and the upcoming divorce will be the only one of it’s kind in Maryland, and may go to the state appeals court on defining LGBT law. Given that it isnt exactly amicable, my life is completely uprooted and starting over in all kinds of ways, spiritually, financially, career, and even my physical residence.

    Not handling it well. :(

    SUZIE 5-2014: This has been a very difficult Cardinal affliction for everyone. Personally, everything that can go wrong has. Last night someone stole something important out of my yard. Not expensive but very frustrating.

    I have an article on SURVIVING PLUTO TRANSITS on this website that may be better suited to your needs.

    I remember Pluto transiting through Libra in the 1970s. Many couples who had been together for 20-30 years began having divorces. Older women were suddenly thrust into the job market, having to go back to school to learn a trade and life was not easy.

    I felt that the Pluto in Libra generation would feel the impact on a generational level. They would try to control relationships so that they would not suddenly end but this does not work.

    I am not saying that you are controlling but Libra can be a Fixer and they can try to accommodate others in order to keep the peace. In trying to be fair to others, they are no longer fair to themselves. Eventually, health can suffer unjtil they are liberated (female issues generally).

    I have another article on the Cardinal Cross and Health on this website too. The big issue is the adrenal/thyroid that can incorrectly be treated with psychiatric drugs or heart medication — when Seriphos to calm the adrenals would do the trick.

    Hi Lynn
    I came across your website while looking for anything that could help me deal with my current Pluto to natal Mercury in Capricorn transit (I have Mercury in 13 degrees Capricorn) in my 4th house. Before Pluto went retrograde this year, I felt quite happy and outgoing, much more articulate in expressing myself, and very focussed and confident in my job and my personal life. Since Pluto went retrograde, it feels as if the bottom has fallen out of my world. My secure job of 20 years which I used to love (freelance social research) suddenly feels dead and dull, and the organisation I work for are having financial difficulties which means that I will either lose 40% of my job (with decreased income) or have to apply for a higher management position which feels wrong and “not me”(but would give me a secure income).

    In addition to this, my partner of 2 years who I always felt was my warm, secure best friend who loved me dearly and who I trusted completely, has suddenly shut me out for no apparent reason, and seems to be playing all sorts of fear-based power games with me, which is acutely painful for me. I cannot seem to put any of this right no matter what I do as he refuses to talk about anything and will not have any kind of honest discussion about what is wrong.

    I feel as if I am just swamped by feelings of insecurity, anger, emotional pain, futility, lack of hope in the future, mistrust of other people’s motives, and fears of ending my life alone in poverty. Rationally I tell myself this is ridiculous – I am normally a very positive, self-sufficient and optimistic person with a lot of self-confidence, I have had a good education and successful working life, several good friends, good relationships with colleagues, and a wonderful son who has always been a treasure. But I feel as if something is just gripping me like a disease and I cannot shake off these feelings which will not go away, no matter how much I try to be positive or dig inside myself to try to figure out what needs bringing to the surface and healing.

    I have read everything I can find about Pluto transiting Mercury and Pluto transiting the 4th house – a shift in mental outlook, possible change of home and job, a need to dig deeply into things, revisiting the pain of the childhood and family environment etc – but none of what I read seems to really offer any emotional comfort. I can’t seem to find a way to alleviate the pain and hopelessness – in spite of being aware that Pluto demands inner transformation and being willing to do whatever is required. I feel trapped by the choices I am having to make at work and in extreme pain over my partner’s suddenly shutting me out – and depressed that I cannot find solutions.

    What do I need to do or learn to move forwards with this transit instead of feeling stuck in a grey, painful wasteland?

    ALI (6-2014): First, you need to read my article on HOW TO SURVIVE PLUTO TRANSITS on this website.

    Pluto forces us to FEEL OUR FEELINGS and there is often no remedy until we have faced these emotions head on.

    The transiting Pluto presses on our solar plexus/astral body forcing these feelings to the surface so that we can see how we feel more clearly. Yes, these emotions can make you FEEL angry, resentful and distrustful. I cannot tell you what to do with these feelings – you need to seek a good psychological astrologer or talk with some good friends about how you are feeling in order to get some feedback and perspective — Pluto is so intense that it can distort reality.

    If these angry feelings stay inside, they will eventually make you ill. So, it is important to make peace with your emotions.
    Physical activity is helpful and socializing (isolation can make you more resentful.

    Pluto transiting the 4th House can bring healing to the family relationships. This happened for me and for a friend who is now contacting relatives from whom she has been estranged for many years.

    The 4th House is not just your biological family but your extended family in the place in which you work. Many astrologers overlook this connection. So, maybe a change is in order but I do not know what else in happening in your chart – it has to be more than the Pluto transit. Yes, Pluto can be very difficult all on its own.

    Since Cardinal signs are being activated, the adrenal-thyroid glands can be stressed. Read my article on the Cardinal Cross and health from my homepage.

    Could you kindly post a link to your PDF on begining & ending degrees? I have Vesta at 29 degrees Aries, Mars at 29 degrees Gemini, Venus at 0 degrees Cancer, Pluto at 29 degrees Virgo and my North Node at 29 degrees Capricorn. (Venus and Mars are sextile Mercury at 26 Aries but I am assuming 26 degrees is too far off, also Jupiter completes my T-Square at 4 degrees Capricorn). I would be very curious as to what this means. Thanks!

    Hi Lynn, I am wondering if you can help understand what this pluto retrograde might mean for me. Transiting pluto has been conjuncting my natal sun in Capricorn 7th house, going over it three times by now in past 1-2 years and this August would be the 3rd (or 4th) time. Last 2 years have been a depressing mess so far as anything in my life is concerned, especially relationships but then they have been a mess all my life.
    My sun is at 11 degrees capricorn and I have Leo on the cusp of 3rd house.
    I am really trying to think what is this transit trying to teach me, what patterns am I looking at.
    btw the transiting pluto is also semi-sextile my venus in Aquarius in the 9th house, if that makes a difference.

  39. Lynn Koiner Says:

    MARIA (7-2014): You are reading the wrong article for the answer to your question. I have an article on HOW TO SURVIVE A PLUTO TRANSIT on this website – look on the left side of the homepage. I believe it is under Transits.

  40. Brian Says:

    I Have Pluto About To Enter 2nd House Cap With saturn at home there
    is pluto gonna change my pessimistic outlook ??

  41. Lynn Koiner Says:

    BRIAN (9-2014): Probably not because only you can change your pessimistic outlook and your lifestyle that supports this.

    I do not mean to sound scarcastic but I had to make a major lifestyle change myself to change the negative patterns in my life.

    Transits do not change you — YOU CHANGE YOU.
