Every planet in astrology carries its own power. However, no planet personifies power quite the way Pluto does. Lying in the distant reaches of the universe, darkness is what Pluto knows best. It rules over death and destruction, but also rules over transformation and rebirth. Although mysterious, its power is running at a deep undercurrent. Although small, Pluto backs a big punch. So, what happens when Pluto retrograde 2019 ends? While there's no way to tell the future, rest assured that your own power will reach new heights.
Because Pluto is an outer (dwarf) planet, its retrograde is not greatly felt the way it might be if Mercury or Venus were in retrograde. However, that doesn't mean Pluto retrograde isn't important. In fact, it has the power to reshape society at large, as well as instill shifts in your life over a long period of time.
Pluto retrograde began April 24 and comes to an end Oct. 3. When a planet goes retrograde, its energy is turned inward, launching a period of deep introspection and inner transformation. While Pluto was retrograde, you were forced to reexamine the power structures and obsessions in your life. Whether you've held on too tightly to something, or you've allowed yourself to be manipulated, the truth likely surfaced during that time. When Pluto turns direct, it will be time to understand what you can and cannot control.
