Daily Greetings for September 22, 2015

Greetings Pagans on this last day of Summer!

Time to prepare your Fall Equinox Mabon Ritual:

Autumn Equinox Lore and Ritual

Autumn Equinox, or Mabon, is the second harvest festival in the Wheel of the Year.  Mabon, unlikes some other Sabbats, is not a continuation or recreation of a Celtic festival.  However, it is possible that it was influenced by the Christian Michaelmas, which grew from a religious festival in the Middle Ages into a more generalized harvest festival in later times.

In Wicca, this Sabbat similar to the secular Thanksgiving holidays (which is less then a month away in Canada, but about two months away in the United States).  Wiccans take time to appreciate the foods that are being harvested, and to honour the Lord, the male divine, who has given up His life so that we might be able to harvest these items.  (There is another myth cycle that gives this Sabbat a different meaning, but I do not follow the Holly and Oak king cycle.)

In Southern Ontario, this is the time of the largest harvest, when there is an abundance of apples, tomatoes, and other produce.  For many Ontarians, apples and tomatoes are synonymous with fall, as are the rituals of making spaghetti sauce and apple sauce.  Tomatoes are grown in Southern Ontario year round–in fields during the summer and greenhouses in the winter.  They were originally introduced to the province in the early 1900s, and have grown continually in popularity.

Some Wiccan traditions see this Sabbat as marking the beginning of the dark half of the year, rather than November Eve/Samhain.

Ritual
Items Needed:

acorns and oak leaves
fall flowers (mums, etc.)
gourds and miniature pumpkins
apples and knife
paper or Book of Shadows
list of “I believe” from Spring Equinox
pen

Decorate your altar with the acorns, oak leaves, fall flowers, gourds, etc.  If the leaves in your area have already begun to turn, include a basket of them as well.  Arrange several apples on an attractive plate and place that on your altar as well.  Keep your pen and paper (or Book of Shadows) nearby, along with your list of beliefs created during the Spring Equinox.

Begin your ritual with your usual Circle casting.  Be sure to state why you are performing the Circle–for example “Today is the day I celebrate the Autumn Equinox I have cast my Circle so that I might celebrate with the Lord and Lady.”

Settle yourself before your altar in whatever manner is most comfortable.  Recite the following, or something similar, while reflecting on the meaning of the season:

The leaves are falling and the days grow colder.  The Lord has sailed to the West, taking the warmth of the Sun with Him.  The Lady remained behind, preparing for His rebirth and watching over us, Her children.

Blessings on the Lord in His Western Land, who’s death has provided us with an ample harvest.

Blessings on the Lady in Her lonely home, for Her love will sustain us through the coming cold.

Take up one of the apples from you altar and hold it in both hands.  Meditate on the personal meaning of this Sabbat, filling the apple with positive energy and the love you feel for the Lord and Lady.  When ready, eat the apple.  Set aside the seeds, if you wish, to be used during your next Spring Equinox ritual.

Next, take your pen and piece of paper and write our a list of all the things you believe.  For example, “I believe that fairies exist.”  You may also want to include a list of goals that you would like to accomplish before the Spring Equinox.

When you are done, bring out the list you wrote during the Spring Equinox ritual and compare it to what you have just written.  If you don’t have a list, put away the list you have just created until the next Spring Equinox.

Close the ritual when you are ready, using your regular closing.  Follow up with a meal of seasonal produce and a dessert made with the apples that we sitting on your altar.  Seasonal produce in Southern Ontario includes:

apples
grapes
muskmelons
pears
plums
beans
broccoli
cabbage
carrots
cauliflower
celery
cucumbers
eggplant
leeks
lettuce
onions
bell peppers
potatoes
radishes
spinach
squash
tomatoes

To recognize that the mirror of harvesting is planting, consider saving the seeds from your meal for planting in the spring.

Mabon Lore

Autumn Equinox, around September 21, is the

time of the descent of the Goddess into the

Underworld. With her departure, we see the

decline of nature and the coming of winter.

This is a classic, ancient mythos, seen the

Sumerian myth of Inanna and in the ancient

Greek and Roman legends of Demeter and

Persephone.

 

In September, we also bid farewell to the

Harvest Lord who was slain at Lammas. He is

the Green Man, seen as the cycle of nature in

the plant kingdom. He is harvested and his

seeds are planted into the Earth so that life

may continue and be more abundant.

 

Mabon ("Great Son") is a Welsh god. He was a

great hunter with a swift horse and a wonderful

hound. He may have been a mythologized actual

leader. He was stolen from his mother, Modron

(Great Mother),when he was three nights old,

but was eventually rescued by King Arthur

(other legends say he was rescued by the

Blackbird, the Stag, the Owl, the Eagle, and

the Salmon). All along, however, Mabon has

been dwelling, a happy captive, in Modron's

magickal Otherworld -- Madron's womb. Only in

this way can he be reborn. Mabon's light has

been drawn into the Earth, gathering strength

and wisdom enough to become a new seed. In

this sense, Mabon is the masculine counterpart

of Persephone -- the male fertilizing principle

seasonally withdrawn. Modron corresponds with

Demeter.

 

From the moment of the September Equinox, the

Sun's strength diminishes, until the moment of

Winter Solstice in December, when the Sun grows

stronger and the days once again become longer

than the nights.

 

Symbols celebrating the season include various

types of gourd and melons. Stalk can be tied

together symbolizing the Harvest Lord and then

set in a circle of gourds. A besom can be

constructed to symbolize the polarity of male

and female. The Harvest Lord is often

symbolized by a straw man, whose sacrificial

body is burned and its ashes scattered upon the

earth. The Harvest Queen, or Kern Baby, is made

from the last sheaf of the harvest and bundled

by the reapers who proclaim, "We have the Kern!"

The sheaf is dressed in a white frock decorated

with colorful ribbons depicting spring, and then

hung upon a pole (a phallic fertility symbol).

In Scotland, the last sheaf of harvest is called

the Maiden, and must be cut by the youngest

female in attendance.

Holiday Fare

 

Mabon is the Witch's Thanksgiving, a time to

appreciate and give thanks to the Goddess for

her bounty and to share in the joys of the

harvest. Fall fruits, squash, gourds, pumpkins,

grains, nut breads, vegetables.

 

A magickal Mabon beverage: hot apple cider.

Apple rules the heart, cider alone is a self-

love potion. By spicing it with cinnamon, ruled

by Jupiter and the Sun, we are in essence,

ingesting the sunlight.

 

Sample menu #1: Mabon Wine Moon Cider, Roast

Chicken Rubbed with Sage, Basil, and Thyme,

Acorn Squash made with Sweet Butter, Cinnamon

and Honey, and Apple Bread.

 

Sample menu #2: Wine from the god and beans and

squashes from the goddess. A hearty multi-bean

soup with smoked meats (optional), including

such as cut-up mild sausage like mild Italian

or Polish.

 

Mabon Wine Moon Cider

 

4 cups apple cider 1/2 tsp. whole cloves

4 cups grape juice additional cinnamon sticks

2 cinnamon sticks for cups, 6 inches long

1 tsp allspice

 

In a 4-quart saucepan, heat cider and grape

juice. Add cinnamon, allspice and cloves.

Bring just to boiling. Lower heat and simmer

for 5 minutes.

 

Serve with ladle from a cauldron. Makes 8 cups.

Mabon Activities

 

* Make grapevine wreaths using dried bitter-

  sweet herb for protection. Use ribbons of

  gold and yellow to bring in the energy of the

  Sun, and decorate with sprigs of dried yarrow

  or cinnamon sticks.

 

* Make a Magickal Horn of Plenty.

 

* Make Magickal Scented Pinecones.

 

* Make a protection charm of hazelnuts

  (filberts) strung on red thread.

 

* Collect milkweed pods to decorate at Yuletide

  and attract the faeries.

 

* Call upon the elementals and honor them for

  their help with (N-earth) the home and

  finances, (E-air) school and knowledge,

  (S-fire) careers and accomplishments,

  (W-water) emotional balance and fruitful

  relationships.

 

* Make a witch's broom. Tie dried corn husks or

  herbs (broom, cedar, fennel, lavender,

  peppermint, rosemary) around a strong,

  relatively straight branch of your choice.

 

* Make magic Apple Dolls: Apples are sacred

  symbols of the witch. Our holy land, Avalon,

  means Apple-land or Island of Apples. Slice

  an apple through the midsection and its seeds

  reveal the sacred shape of the pentacle.

  You will need two large apples, one for Mabon

  and one for Modron, 2 pencils and 2 dowels

  about 12 inches long, a paring knife, a glass

  or bowl of water to wash your fingers, a plate,

  and a towel to wipe your hands. Peel and core

  the apples. Carve a face in the apples. Place

  apples on a dowel and stand them in a jar

  to dry (start now). Then charge in a magick

  circle. After 2 or 3 weeks, they should look

  like shrunken heads. Make them into dolls. Use

  wheat, dried herbs or doll's hair for hair.

  Dress them in tiny robes and bring them into

  the circle, asking god/dess to charge them with

  their light.

 

  Hang these Mabon and Madron heads on a Witch's

  cord or a Mabon wreath.

Make a Magickal Horn of Plenty

While the traditional Horn of Plenty, or cornucopia, is a symbol of bounty and a good harvest, it also has definite magickal overtones. The horn itself is a phallic symbol, representative of the God. The inside of the horn is womb-like, especially when it is full of bounty from the fertile earth. This represents the Goddess. And since Mabon is the Witches Thanksgiving, it is very appropriate to utilize this symbol for our altars or table tops.

Make or buy a cornucopia. I bought a wicker one in the basket section of a local craft store. Some of the more crafty among us may opt to make one out of grapevine or other material. Fill the horn with fruits of the season -- fruit, veggies, flowers. Let them spill out onto the table. Add magickal trinkets, glitter, oak leaves or acorns, hazel nuts, or even tarot cards. The Justice card is a card of balance, and Mabon is a day of balance. Justice also corresponds to Libra, the astrological sign of Mabon. Look through your deck, you may find other cards that suit the season.

We're going to borrow an idea from Yasmine Galenorn's book Dancing with the Sun. (Buy this book ! It's excellent.) She puts magickally charged charm boxes in her cornucopia. Following are instructions:

Charm Boxes
(pp. 124-126, Dancing With the Sun by Yasmine Galenorn)

These are simple charms that you can keep year after year for your altar. (I put them in the cornucopia), or you can make new ones each year.

You will need tiny boxes (ring size boxes), one for each type of charm you are making. You can make them for the household, or if anyone has a particular wish, make personalized ones.

Prosperity Boxes

You will need:

sandalwood or cinnamon incense
a box
green wrapping paper
a quarter and a dime
9 kernels of dried corn
9 oats
a malachite bead
a peridot bead
Scotch tape
a pen with green ink

Light a stick of sandalwood or cinnamon incense. Hold the box over the smoking incense to thoroughly saturate it with the scent.

Hold the money, the corn, oats, and beads in your hands. Charge them with energy, focusing on an increase in wealth and prosperity. Visualize yourself harvesting the rewards toward which you have been working.

Put the ingredients n the box and close the lid. With the pen, draw prosperity runes on the box and then wrap them in green wrapping paper. Hold over the smoking incense again and say:

Summer's sun is Autumn's gold
In my life, wealth be foretold
Fortune increase, luck be mine
By harvest dreams and barley wine.
Lady, see my need for more
Send abundance to my door.

Protection Boxes

You will need:

heather, sage, pine, or cedar incense
a box
white wrapping paper
a sprig of rue
a holly leaf
a tiger's eye bead
a piece of dragon's blood resin
Scotch tape
a pen with red ink

Light a stick of heather, sage, pine or cedar incense. Hold the box over the smoking incense to thoroughly saturate it with the scent.

Hold the herbs, bead, and resin in your hands. Charge them with energy, focusing on protection and safety for all who dwell within your household. Visualize a web of protective light encasing your home.

Then put the ingredients into the box and close the lid. With the pen, draw protection runes on the box, and wrap it in the white wrapping paper. Hold over the smoking incense again and say:

Amidst the Autumn's darkest nights
Our home be bound by brilliant light
A web of hope and joy and peace
Be woven now, all danger cease
By watchful eye, by lock and key,
Protect our home, so mote it be.

 

Make Magickal Scented Pine Cones

Create these talismans in a magickal circle for use during the Mabon, Samhain, and Yule seasons. Frankincense and myrrh are particularly spiritual herbs which have been used in religious ceremonies for ages. When burned, frankincense releases powerful vibrations as well as banishes negativity and evil. It protects, consecrates, purifies, and exorcises. It is attributed to the Sun. Myrrh purifies, lifts vibrations, and creates peace. It is used to intensify the power of any incense to which it is added. Myrrh is attributed to the Moon. The fact that these two herbs are associated to the Sun and Moon is highly appropriate as we enter the Mabon season, a time of balance. And as we enter the dark half of the year, these herbs work together to push back our fears and anxieties.

These pine cones are burned in the fireplace or cauldron.

Materials:

2x2-inch pine cones (about 24)
Frankincense powder (1/4 cup, approximately 2 ounces)
Myrrh powder (1/2 cup, approximately 4 ounces)
Gold Glitter (1.4 cup)
White Crafts Glue
Cellophane bags (available from florist or crafts supply store)
Shallow container, such as a shoe box lid
Gold filigree ribbon
Newspapers

Directions:

1. Rinse pine cones with water. Lay cones on an old cookie sheet and place in 300 degrees oven for one hour. Spread cones out on layers of newspapers and set aside to complete drying.

2. Blend frankincense, myrrh, and glitter in a shallow container. Dab glue on tips of pine cone petals and on the bottom of the cone. Roll cone in mixture of powder and glitter. Set cones aside to dry.

3. Package in a handful of dried cones in cellophane bags to give as gifts. Tie bag shut with gold filigree ribbon. Attach a label with a holiday greeting and instructions for using the pine cones:

Enjoy the aromatic incense the cones release when burned. Toss a cone or two onto hot embers, and inhale the earthy fragrance.

Or, set the cones in a dish for a more subtly fragrant decoration.

Candlelight is magickal and brings warmth and sets the mood.

Candles have been associated with myth,

lore, superstition, spells and been long used

for divination's and rituals, to intensify the

energies while performing magickal work.

Each color of the candles represents a

specific intent and combined with a spell,

will bring forth strength within our magick.

By using the proper candle color,

engraving a small symbol onto a candle or

by adding herbs and essential oils,

we create candle magick and when we

are using our special prepared candles

with our spells and rituals, we are adding

extra strength and energy to our magickal

work.

Pre~Class:

We all got to start somewhere! I have developed this crash course class to help the very new students be prepared for their formal education in level I classes. This is nothing worse than being totally lost before you begin, so if your placement screening determined you needed a little extra help welcome to this class.

 

This class is a prep-screening tool to determine where you, the applicant, would best fit in the Legion of Pagans curriculum. Should an applicant miss 10 or more questions, a 2 week crash course will be required prior to enrollment in the level I Basic Witch classes.

 

The tuition of $40.00 for this course will be applied to any of the Level I Progressive Class tuition upon successful completion.

Retrograde Planets – 2015


Monday, March 17th, 2014
The planets of our solar system are in constant motion as they revolve around our Sun.

When we gaze into the night sky, our planets move to the East relative to the stars.  However, there are times where it appears that a planet is moving in the opposite direction, to the West, and that is when a planet is referred to as moving RETROGRADE.

Of course RETROGRADE planets are never actually moving backwards, the backward motion is purely an optical illusion.  Planets only have the appearance of moving backwards from our position here on Earth.

This same optical illusion you may have experienced yourself when driving past a car travelling at slower speed to your vehicle.  As you pass the car, there is a period where it appears that the car your are passing is stationary and then moving backwards.  It is an illusion created by the different speeds of the passing vehicles.

Retrograde – an Optical Illusion

Lets look at the planet Mars to help understand the illusionary optics of a planet in RETROGRADE.

Mars takes approximately 2 years to transit around the Sun, whereas our Earth takes only 1 year.  Thus there are times during Earth’s transit around the Sun where we pass by the slower moving Mars.  As the Earth ‘catches up’ to Mars, it appears that Mars slows down, stops and begins moving to the West, ie RETROGRADE.  As Earth then passes Mars, Mars then appears to slow down, stop and then continue back in its Easterly transit.

The outer planets of our solar system that move more slowly relatively to Earth, spend much longer periods in RETROGRADE, which can be 4 to 5 months within a year.

However the inner planets of our solar system that move much faster that the outer planets, are in RETROGRADE more frequently and for much shorter periods of time – anywhere from approximately 3 weeks to 3 months.

When a planet it moving retrograde, it is often represented as such through the symbol ‘Rx’.

How does a Retrograde planet affect us energetically ?

When a planet is Retrograde it’s energy becomes more inward.  During this inward phase, we have the opportunity to review or reflect our ‘inner-self’ as it relates to the past.  The past maybe this life, or could even relate to previous incarnation of the Soul.

What we inwardly work with during the retrograde period will depend of what the planet energetically rules, including the planets rudimentary element, its quality & archetypal vibration.

Whilst a retrograde planet can have a bad rap of creating chaos within our lives, in actual fact these ‘challenges’ produce wonderful opportunities for growth.   As the pot is ‘stirred up’ and what is unconscious comes to the surface… it represents a wonderful opportunity for healing, shifting old energy and being greater degrees of joy and self-love.

Review of the energetic of Retrograde planets

Mercury Retrograde

Mercury takes 88 days to do one complete revolution around our Sun.   Mercury moves into retrograde three times per year, for anywhere between 19 to 24 days.

Mercury rules all communications such as computers, phones, travel, electronics and all business/personal communications & documentations.  When mercury moves retrograde and into the darker recesses of our psyche, this may herald a time of misunderstandings, mis-communications, computers & electronics crashing and plans going haywire !

When Mercury is retro, we are given a ‘time out’ to review, revise, reflect and re-visit.  Our energy is more slowed as we internalize the energy of the retrograde planet.  When Mercury is retro it is wise to become more conscious of communications as you are more likely to be misunderstood / misquoted at this time.  If contracts need to be signed, ensure they are perused with a fine tooth-comb.  And it is also wise to back up all technology BEFORE the retrograde commences.

So how do you you consciously work with Mercury Retrograde ? Just consider all the ‘RE’s’, ie re-evaluations, re-checking, re-pair, re-store etc., urging on the side of caution and making sure all details are attended to.

Rather than perceive Mercury Retrograde as a negative time, I prefer to work with the energy as a wonderful ‘inward’ time to re-calibrate my visions and move forward in conscious action when Mercury moves direct.   It is also a fabulous time to tie up all those lose ends, old projects and things that you just never got around to finishing.

Of course if things do start to go ‘pair-shaped’, well that just means it is a time to do something else, or to do the job differently… see it as a time to learn a new skill, think laterally and solve problems from a higher level of consciousness.

Venus Retrograde

Venus takes 225 days to do a complete revolution around our Sun and is stationary for somewhere between a few hours or 3 or 4 days.  Venus moves into retrograde every 18 months or so, and then stays that way for about 6 weeks.

Venus rules all of our relationships, our relationship to self as well as love, family, friendships and our business relationships.  It also is our appreciation of art, beauty and our passions.

When Venus is retro you may find that the world takes on a different hue, as what you previously experienced as beautiful now tends to be seen through different eyes.  All your relationships maybe under the microscope and if you have avoided relationship then this maybe exactly what you attract.  If you have slipped into old patterns (such as the glamour of overindulging in food, sex, alcohol), it is a time to also examine your relationship with substances and lifestyle choices.

It is often recommend to not take major relationship steps during a Venus retro (such as engagement or marriage or even divorce or quitting a job)… but to objectively explore your emotions and feelings as they come up and then to move forward consciously when Venus goes direct.

Venus Direct – September 6/7, 2015

 

Mars Retrograde

Mars takes approximately 2 years (687 days) to do a complete revolution around our Sun.  Mars moves into retrograde every 2 years + 2 months, and then stays that way for about 55 to 80 days.

Mars rules energy, passion, action, initiative and asserting yourself out in the world.

When Mars is retrograde, this ‘action oriented’ planets energy lacks vitality as the energy is inverted inward.  It can at times feel as if you are paddling upstream, with endless delays, roadblocks, setbacks and detours dotting your path.   For some, these frustrations may give light to anger and resentment, which may result in outbursts and emotional/physical explosions that aren’t pretty.  It is a bit like capping an active volcano, if the internal pressure builds too much the end result could be very messy !

Rather than burn up your internal energy through anger, war & fighting during Mars Retrograde, it would be better to allow and ‘see’ how these delays can serve you.  Initiating new projects (eg relationships, contracts, new business deals etc..) during Mars retro most often leads to dead-ends or endless delays, it is better to reflect on or rework existing projects.  If set-back do arise, don’t force issues, just go with flow and work with any delays in the knowing that all happens in divine timing for the greater good of all.

No Retrogrades during 2015

 

Jupiter Retrograde

Jupiter takes around 12 years to do a complete revolution around our Sun.  Jupiter moves into retrograde approximately every year for around 120 days.

Jupiter rules expansion, freedom, wisdom, travel, foreign affairs, abundance and good luck.  It is a social and jolly planet, working with the collective as it spends about 1 year in every sign of the zodiac.

When Jupiter is retro, this energy is reflected inward and we are guided to reevaluate our spiritual beliefs, our societal ethics and our philosophical approach to life.  It is a time of truth-seeking and finding the deeper meaning in all aspects of life.

Travel plans can be delayed or cancelled during Jupiter retro.  This is a time to slow down and give focus to your personal belief systems and understandings of success and abundance.  This is also not the best time to take big risks, or spend up big.. but rather do your research, ponder and follow your inner-guidance when Jupiter moves direct.

Jupiter Retrograde Dates for 2015

Jupiter Retrograde – December 8/9, 2014
Jupiter Direct – April 8/9, 2015

Saturn Retrograde

Saturn takes approximately 29.5 years to do a complete revolution around our Sun.  Saturn moves into retrograde approximately every year for around 140 days.

Saturn is often referred to as the planet of karma, discipline or the dispenser of justice.  It is a factual planet that induces us to face our personal reality, and is thorough, unrelenting and breaks down our control issues.  I like to view Saturn as a wise old sage.

When Saturn is retro, it is not a time to take short-cuts, but an opportunity to take things slowly and do it correctly the first time around.. or you may find you will be revisiting the project over and over again.  It is a time to understand your limitations or limitations of those around you and practice patience.   Authority maybe also be an issue at this time, and you may feel like ‘fighting the system’ be it in your family, place of work or the greater sphere of community or government.  When Saturn is retrograde there also tends to be a lack of boundaries.. so be mindful of saying YES to everything and then feeling overwhelmed and a loss of power.

Take the opportunity during Saturn retro to do some deep soul searching, assess what needs to change and prepare for this change once Saturn moves direct.  It is a time to assess our failures, learn from our mistakes and emerge from the introspection with wisdom and understanding.

Uranus Retrograde

Uranus takes about 84 years to do a complete revolution around our Sun, thus spending about 7 years in each sign of the Zodiac.  Uranus moves into retrograde approximately every year for around 148 days.

With Uranus, simply ‘expect the unexpected’.  Uranus is like a wildcard of the pack, unpredictable, original and out of the box thinking.  Uranus can spark revolutions as it has its gaze on more humanitarian, freedom loving and unconventional pursuits.

When Uranus is retro, chaos is often the order of the day as you expect the unexpected of an unexpectable planet !  If you are shy you may find yourself at the centre of attention, or if you are an extrovert you may find yourself hiding away.  You may find your personality or behavior quite altered at this time, as your actions in the world oppose what others normally experience or expect of you.

Take the opportunity during Uranus retro to explore inwardly what freedom means to you and what you need to change to be this freedom.  Intuition is heightened during this self-help psychological assessment and real ‘ah-ha’ moments are often the order of the day.

Neptune Retrograde

Uranus takes about 165 years to do a complete revolution around our Sun, thus spending about 14 years in each sign of the Zodiac.  Neptune moves into retrograde approximately every year for around 150 days.

Neptune is often referred to as the ‘higher octave’ cousin of Venus.  Thus our values for love, beauty and passions become more ‘universal’ through Neptune.   Neptune is the planet of the mysterious, the illusionary and beyond the confines of the program.  It calls us to gain insights from higher states of conscious/awareness/dream state.  In it’s polarity, Neptune can also represent the hypnotic trance like state of delusion.

When Neptune is retrograde, people tend to focus more on their dreams, intuition and all creative pursuits.  If you are usually in a ‘dream state’ you may find that you work with retro energy to bring this dream into physical form.  If you deny the dream state, then retro may induce escapism and the taking of mind-altering substances to block the dream or movie from playing out.

During Neptune retro, turn into the inner-self and be receptive to the truth.  The illusion is exposed and reality is factual.  This is a great time to foster the inner-creative and bring it into physical form.

Pluto Retrograde

Pluto takes 248 years to do a complete revolution around our Sun, thus spending on average about 21 years (12 to 31 years) in each sign of the Zodiac.  Pluto moves into retrograde approximately every year for around 5 or 6 months.

PLUTO is the outer most planet in our solar system (and yes it is still a planet in astrology).. and its energy brings about transformation.  Pluto induces us to look into the deep recesses of our subconscious and transform that which doesn’t serve.  Of course we all have free will & choice… but Pluto has a unique way of pushing your buttons and ‘making you’ transform or else !  Pluto can be pretty intense, but it can also make things happen !  Pluto is about death & birth, destruction & reformation, and endings & beginnings.

When Pluto is retrograde, we are guided to turn inward to our own personal shadow side and take a long hard look at the good, the bad and the ugly.  There is no hiding as we ‘see’ our desires and our feelings around power, control and money.  And we also ‘see’ our motivation for our desires, ie is it for revenge is it because we really want it !   It is also a time to revisit some of those old wounds, perceived limitations and purge then out of our lives.

During Pluto retro, it is a time to transcend control and acknowledge that transformation will take place.  We can flow with the destruction that may come with this inner-phase or we can move through it kicking and screaming… and well simply cause even more unnecessary pain and hurt within our lives.
