The power of Pluto should not be underestimated. Although it is the furthest in distance from Earth, this small but mighty planet is notorious for wreaking havoc on our lives, bringing power struggles, intense energies, and deep emotions, earning it the name “the great destroyer.” Contrary to other planets in retrograde, which emit the opposite effect on our lives and in astrology, this retrograde intensifies the Plutonian influence and seemingly causes it to go into overdrive. As a result, this decisive period can bring some significant challenges. In its regular orbit, Pluto forces us to face challenges outside of ourselves, so when it goes into retrograde, it forces us to look inward and face challenges within.

While exposing parts of yourself that you are not ready to reveal can be unnerving, it is an equally valuable time when you will begin to discover more about yourself as the universe pushes you to explore your psyche. Despite the hurdles that may arise, this astrological event may enhance your personal growth and encourage you to remove negativity from your life to leave you with a new, empowering headspace. If you’re looking for guidance during this time, here’s what you need to know:

When does Pluto go into retrograde in 2023?

Pluto retrograde 2023 will start in Aquarius on May 1st before returning to Capricorn on June 11th and continuing until October 11th. The significance of Pluto moving into Aquarius is not to be overlooked as it last changed signs to Capricorn in 2008, where it has remained for the last 14 years. However, this cosmic shift is only temporary as Pluto will return to Aquarius on January 22nd, 2024, and it will remain there for the next 19 and a half years. Pluto is known to spend considerably longer in each sign than the rest of the planets, so this major event in astrology will only have been experienced either once or twice in most people’s lives.

How does Pluto retrograde affect your natal chart?

Given that Pluto spends around half the year in retrograde, there’s a strong chance that it may coincide with your natal chart. When planets are in retrograde during your natal chart, they are sometimes described as being misunderstood and unable to express themselves or manifest their influence fully. In addition, it is also believed that retrograde planets in the natal chart only reach their full potential in later life after significant introspection and adjustment after the retrograde occurs. However, it is important to note that Pluto’s retrograde in the natal chart is considered less impactful than Mercury or Venus.

How will Pluto retrograde affect your zodiac sign?

When Pluto enters retrograde, you will feel empowered and unafraid to express your opinions, even if it means entering conflict with others. It’s a time to show your true self and look inward to identify your deepest thoughts and desires, even if you haven’t felt ready to express them. Pushing yourself out of your comfort zone will enable you to attain a stronger sense of identity and get to know different parts of your mind and soul. Rather than seeking major transformation, use introspection to gain a better grasp of your deepest instincts. Take note of how your zodiac sign may be affected and better prepare yourself when retrograde begins:

Pluto retrograde may prove to be a frustrating time for Aries. Their impatience will cause them to fight their way forward and cause disproportionate reactions which will not be met with tolerance. Their behavior might be unnerving for some and some of their close relationships may be threatened in the process.


The Taurus has the potential to use Pluto retrograde to its advantage. Their energy will propel them to overcome any obstacles that stand in the way of reaching their goals.


This retrograde won’t bring out the best of the Gemini. They may find themselves stressed, nervous, and overcompensating for the anticipated changes. Rather than focusing the mind, Gemini’s may question themselves, which could cause them to lose their direction.


As overthinkers of the zodiac, the highly emotional Cancer may not respond to Pluto retrograde in the best way. Their anxiety may be exacerbated, and they will find it hard to keep control of their emotions.


Leo’s may take advantage of Pluto in retrograde and do anything to put themselves ahead, even at the expense of others. Almost impossible to rein in, they will push the limits and reveal their intolerance.


These practical, quick-thinkers may lose control during the retrograde and stress out. When their systematic approach to life is thrown a curveball, they may act out in negative ways and become insensitive to others.

Libra may benefit greatly from Pluto’s retrograde. It has the potential to give them a craving for life changes, leaving negative energy behind and embracing a fresh start. Acting however they please, those who try to reason with them may be given an unfavorable response.


Bold and brave, the Scorpio’s ambition and curiosity will be increased tenfold during the retrograde. However, their thirst for pushing the limits and seeking new experiences may be taken too far, and they could be abruptly returned to reality.


The Sagittarius will grab this opportunity to live life to the fullest and explore new places and people. Nothing will stop them from venturing onto new paths and taking risks, but deep down, they will worry about how far they seek to go.


Capricorns may experience feelings of pensive sadness without a specific cause during Pluto retrograde. They may struggle to adapt to the changes, resulting in tensions, communication problems, and mood swings.


As the optimists of the zodiac, Aquarius signs will be more attentive to the shifts happening around them and will want to help others deal with them.


Pisces signs don’t have the best control of their emotions, so retrogrades can be a challenging time for them. These times of instability are stress-inducing, and because they can’t control them, they may turn to spirituality and astrology to get clear insights about the future.
