On Thursday, May 2, 2024, Pluto stations retrograde in Aquarius, pulling you into the depths and accelerating your personal growth. Pluto retrograde in Aquarius horoscopes shows that this is a time for each zodiac sign to get in touch with the subconscious, to be mindful of what your truth and that of others seem to be and to challenge yourself to tune into your divine authenticity. 

Pluto brings to the surface not what you necessarily want, but what you need to continue evolving into the person who can live a life true to your soul. In this process, an excavation occurs where you are guided to honor what is so you can have more power to create what you want. In many ways, Pluto retrograde in Aquarius exposes the darkness, so that you may finally step into the light. 


As Pluto is still preparing to enter its Age of Aquarius, it will backtrack into Capricorn from September 1 to November 19 before officially shifting into Aquarius until 2044. In this space of moving ahead, yet being called back at the same time, you aren’t only discovering the secrets of what can help you in this new Pluto era but also finally feeling like the lessons of the past are behind you.

Pluto retrograde in Aquarius will bring you powerful opportunities to reflect on the choices you’ve made for your life, along with new chances to step out of your comfort zone so you can live a life more aligned with your dreams. This may bring up issues of how you have self-sabotaged in the past or let fear govern your choices but remember anything that rises to the surface is only meant to be moved through. Don’t let anything stop you from living more expansively, and that also means not stopping yourself from following your dreams. Excuses are often only subconscious fears coming up, so it’s important to believe in yourself so fervently that you take each and every chance to make your dreams a reality.

Pluto stationing retrograde in Aquarius teaches Cancer that change is truly unavoidable as it is the only constant in life. Pluto retrograde gifts you with an incredibly potent opportunity to transform your life and relationships, but you must not give up or back down from uncomfortable situations. Everything that you want is possible, but to achieve it, you will have to persist and carry on — even if you’re still uncertain of where it will all lead. 

Be honest with yourself about what you want in your life, which can also include your romantic relationships, as you need to ensure that you are only putting energy into what you want to grow – and not what you don’t. Embrace the transformation process and trust that if anything does leave your life, it’s only to create room for something better.
