Your Enlightening Horoscope for Pluto Direct in Capricorn

Updated on October 04, 2021

The planet of Pluto appears to have the Sun shining brightly behind it in the solar system. It is lit up with orange and pink hues.

For the last six months, Pluto has been retrograde in Capricorn, but on October 6th, it turns direct again. This is going to be extra powerful because, on the same day, we have a New Moon in Libra working its magic on us.

So what does this mean for you?

During Pluto retrograde, issues of karma will have come to the forefront, and it’s very likely you will have come to realizations about yourself – perhaps of the shocking kind!

How Pluto in Capricorn Influences Us

Pluto is the planet of transformation. It rules Scorpio, the sign of death and rebirth. When Pluto turns retrograde in the sign of Capricorn, it influences the way typical Capricorn themes show up in our lives. This includes money, discipline, business, strategy, and morals.

In Capricorn, Pluto’s karmic lesson is whether we have exercised restraint in these areas of our lives so we can move forward spiritually. If we have not, Pluto will make it clear to us during the retrograde period!

When it turns direct, however, it’s time to take the lessons we’ve learned and see how we can apply them to these areas of our lives so we can progress at a spiritual level.

Pluto is known as a “malefic” planet (meaning, along with Saturn, it’s not very popular!), but just like Saturn, it has tremendous potential to teach us about ourselves. Pluto deals with the “shadow side” just like Scorpio, the sign it rules, and though these transformations may not always be pleasant, they will undoubtedly be enlightening.
