Between April 29 and October 8, Pluto will be retrograde in Capricorn. When it comes to retrograde, most of us think about the havoc caused by Mercury. With Pluto, however, we are in store for a different kind of energy as it moves backward.
April 2022 Pluto Retrograde affects all zodiac signs. When Pluto enters retrograde, you have the opportunity to analyze your emotions and accept yourself as you are.
Next year, all the zodiac signs will be able to enjoy a new beginning, both in their personal and professional life.
According to the 2022 yearly horoscope, some of us will focus on fun, entertainment, pleasure, and hobbies, while others will use their creativity, ambition, and confidence to initiate more extensive personal projects.
Throughout this period, there will be no mountain peaks you can’t climb, no goal you can’t reach. You have the power to achieve anything you set your mind to.

How the Pluto Retrograde Motion Will Affect the Zodiac Signs
During Pluto retrograde, you might expect the influence of the dwarf planet to weaken, wane or behave in a contrary fashion. After all, we’re so used to Mercury retrograde and its opposite effect.
Yet, ironically the Plutonian influence becomes more intense while in retrograde. Expect even deeper encounters with things that lie beneath the surface.
Most planets in retrograde are somewhat reversed—that is, their influences can be fairly opposite of what they are normally. In Pluto’s case, when in retrograde, its influences are not reversed or opposite; rather, it seems to go into overdrive.
It can be very intense and even more fearsome. As Pluto direct forces us to face challenges outside of ourselves, Pluto retrograde forces you to look inside of yourself and face challenges. This can sometimes be unnerving because the transformations we undergo under the influence of Pluto retrograde tend to require a complete breakdown of the old ways and ideas before we can move forward again.
Pluto brings us face to face with our shadow self. We often consider the shadow self the “dark side”. It’s our negative emotions and desires that we oppress, often don’t even like to admit to, and deal with those parts of ourselves that we do not like. When Pluto goes retrograde, it’s a good time to take on any endeavors seeking regeneration.
LIVING THROUGH PLUTO RETROGRADE PERIODS
Pluto retrograde is a great time for delving into any personal transformations you’ve been hoping to accomplish. However, you may have to go through what seems like a trip to Hell and back for it. Be prepared to struggle with your darker impulses and your base emotions.
Hidden motives, such as hunger for power or desires for revenge, may rear their ugly heads and you may have to struggle with them. Reassess whether the actions these motives are driving ultimately serve you or not, and let go of those that don’t.
If you’ve been plagued by pain and suffering from troubled times in the past, now is a good time to revisit these experiences and their effect on you. Pluto can help illuminate the issues to help you break through them, inevitably helping you move forward.
During this period, it’s a good time to try to restore health and peace of mind. Cleansing diets, meditations, psychological counseling, medical treatments, and all such endeavors seem to be much more effective while Pluto is in retrograde.
