This week, we have a lot of planets stationing (appearing to have come to a standstill before starting to move in a different direction) or coming out of their shadow periods, which are also related to retrograde motion.
Pluto stationed retrograde on April 22nd at 21° Capricorn. It was then in retrograde motion until slowing down and stationing direct on September 30th, at 18° Capricorn.
Pluto resumes forward motion again on the 1st of October. As an outer planet, Pluto spends a lot of its time in retrograde motion, so it may not be felt significantly unless you have natal planets at or close to the stationing degrees.
Those with natal planets or chart points (ascendant/midheaven etc) at 17° to 22° of Capricorn, Cancer, Libra and Aries are most likely to feel the effects of Pluto stationing direct.
As Pluto deals with unearthing secrets and exposing things to the light, you may well find yourself dealing with some type of fall-out at this time. There may be a link to what was happening around late April of this year.
On October 2nd, we have Mercury squaring Pluto which may result in discussions related to some topics that have been brewing during this retrograde Pluto period. This will apply for all of us, but for those that have natal planets at the degrees mentioned above, it may be more profound.
On the 5th, Venus stations retrograde at 10° Scorpio. Venus will be retrograde until November 17th and have many of us re-evaluating our values and relationships.
Similar issues from 8 years ago may seem to appear again during the retrograde phase. Those with natal planets at 9° to 11° Scorpio, Taurus, Leo and Aquarius are more likely to be affected by this.
On the 6th, Venus starts its retrograde motion. Also on the 6th, the shadow period for the previous Jupiter retrograde period ends. Jupiter was retrograde from March 8 (23°Scorpio) to July 11 (13° Scorpio).
On the 8th of October, the shadow period for the previous Mars retrograde period ends. Mars was retrograde from June 26 (9° Aquarius) to August 28 (28° Capricorn).
All times Central Standard Time (CST).
