At the Still Point Of Pluto’s Retrograde station or Direct station it is time to surrender to what has been so we can move toward what is becoming.

Are you Ready for a NEW World, a NEW way of life already upon us?

On May 01, 2023 Pluto (00° Aquarius 21) stations Retrograde. Pluto Stations direct at its second still point of the year on October 10, 2023 at 27° Capricorn 53′.

That means if you have planets angles or nodes between 27 degrees of Capricorn, Cancer, Aries or Libra up to 1° Aquarius, Leo, Taurus or Scorpio you are in the midst of a profound Pluto initiation of death and rebirth dying to who you think you are so you can be reborn to who you truly are.

This is also true of the United States (USA) beginning its Pluto return. Pluto on the USA chart is at 27 Capricorn 33 minutes, so Pluto today is within less than a degree of the USA Pluto. Remember there are 60 minutes in a degree so Pluto is within 45 minutes of being exact on the USA’s natal Pluto.

Something to ponder is what has to die in the USA politics, government, and perception of this country to fulfill its original intent?

More about the Still Point
Any planetary Still Point is a place of
 suspension or pause where the energies remain suspended – where everything possible exists before something begins to emerge. This timing lasts for many days before and after the exact station point.

The opportunity at this time is to surrender our old perceptions, along with our conditioned personal and collective experiences that have held us back – to something more enlivening, more empowering, more appealing, more entertaining, more exciting – whatever speaks to you.

This is a time for releasing something that has felt stuck, dead, painful, or bewildering that has been holding you back.

Often this is exactly what is needed to ultimately move to a more empowered situation or way of perceiving reality. Pluto in Capricorn reminds us what we believe and perceive is ultimately what creates our reality.

Dying to – or letting go of – those old perceptions and limiting beliefs is liberating and empowering beyond anything we may currently imagined.

At the Still Point Of Pluto’s Retrograde or Direct station it is time to surrender to what has been so we can move toward what is becoming.

The retrograde station is similar to a Phoenix diving into the fire, turning to ash. The station direct is a rebirth time, a rising from the ashes of what has been – though it may take a few weeks to really feel the rising up. Remember, the Phoenix chooses to die to its old form purposefully diving into the fire of transformational change.

The Window of any Pluto retrograde could be imagined as a deep dive into surrender – or dying to what has been so something new is ready to birth around the station direct.

In any process of death and rebirth – including choosing to die to all the fears and beliefs of the Old Earth, survival of the fittest, those who are strongest amass control and resources while depriving others of what is needed to thrive – the death comes first. Remember beliefs exist because of the thoughts we keep thinking. Dying to those thoughts helps us to birth a new reality.

We can ALWAYS choose to let go of those old beliefs, to surrender any attachment to what has been, and to cooperate with the process of death and rebirth, especially when it is about new sustainable ways of living that supports ALL life, not just an elite few.

It is Scary to Die and Be Reborn
One of the most challenging, scary places is the space between what is dying and what is birthing. The empty void where everything is and isn’t simultaneously, where unmanifest potential exists before birthing into manifestation.

This is a natural process – even if we resist with all that we are – the Sun sets on the day that is – before rising on a new day. The seasons continue to change and we are powerless to stop it.

So why not surrender, trust the process and choose to be the seeds for a New Earth, a new time, a new way of being?

This is about Rising from the ashes of the old into a brighter, more magical, more fulfilling new day but only if we are willing to die to what no longer serves and surrender our old limiting identities.

The reality is death is scary for most of us. We tend to resist the changes necessary to bring about new life. The resistance creates more difficulty and only delays the envitable. So during this time (when in a collective Pluto Retrograde) or in a personal Pluto Initation cycle it helps to be willing to die to what is ready to die and know that a New Birth is eminent, representing powerful alchemy – dying to our caterpillar selves and birthing as butterflies!
